In My Life is a Supernatural Dean/Castiel fic by WinJennster, part of the series Painted Angels. As of January 2017, the fic on the AO3 had 7191 hits, 746 kudos, 142 comments, and 29 bookmarks.

In late 2016 and early 2017 the fic drew attention for a very positive review left by an "older lady" who had never read fanfic before. The comment was screencapped and shared many times on twitter, with many fans melting at this validation and general squee. Hundreds of fans have retweeted and reblogged this from various sources, with comments such as "i'm not crying you are"[1]

Hello. I found this story by google. I was looking for the movie Painted Angels, but your story kept coming up. I'm an older lady in my 60's but have an open mind, so I clicked on it. I was simply curious. I've never read a story like this with two men. Three days later, I'd finished the first story and read all the other little stories before starting on this one.
I have shed many tears over this story, but this part in particular got to me since I am Dean and Cas' age. You captured how couples are as they grow older when they're very much in love. I couldn't understand why this story wasn't a book in bookstores and my granddaughter explained to me about fanfiction and now i know. Neither her or I were fans of your source material, but we might start watching.
Thank you for such a wonderful story!
