Word Count: 16512
Warnings: smut
Summary: Sam generally hated these things. He understood the need for conferences and furthering one’s education, but this year was worse than usual. This year he wasn’t feeling it. At all.Three days spent away from the office and all he could think about was the metric shit ton of work waiting for him when he returned. At least the conference was in Vegas, so that was a plus.

He took one last glance in the mirror before he left the room, leather portfolio in hand. He strode down the long corridor to the elevator somewhat distractedly, paying more attention to the day’s agenda in his hand than the actual hallway. He almost bumped into the Klingon heading in the other direction.

Wait, what?

“Gabe and Sam decided to walk around the park after that. The weather was perfect for it: warm, but not too hot. They stopped on the bridge and leaned on the railing too look out at the Falls. They were so close that it would be easy for Gabe to just scoot his hand over and rest it on top of Sam’s. But he honestly didn’t know how that would be received. Sure, they’d been a little flirty with each other all day, but they’ve always been like that”

He sets off to find somewhere to call home and winds up on the doorstep of a secluded lighthouse, seeking reprieve from the storm raging above, where a man with golden eyes spends his nights studying the stars.

Still reeling from the effects of the trials Sam is just trying to get back in the game with his brother and Castiel to help but nothing seems to be working. Enter Gabriel. Ever since Elysian Fields he’s been lying low, and when the doors to heaven are locked against him Gabriel, stranded on Earth with his Grace intact, seeks to help Sam and get some help himself. He’s taken it on himself to help his newly-human siblings find their way in the world but something’s gone wrong. Someone or something is killing off the Fallen…and Gabriel feels like the only one who can stop it.

Mostly because he went behind her back, vigilante-style, to publish it…

For revenge, she’s given him the assignment of covering the grand opening of the New York City Ballet’s Swan Lake. No one wants the job, and the worst part is Gabriel hates ballet.

However, once he catches a glimpse of the leading male dancer he begins to come up with ideas of how to make his article and experience… entertaining. Little does he know, this dancer knows exactly how to entertain and keep Gabriel on the edge of his seat all by himself.

Summary: This is a story about parallel worlds. An infinite number of them. Some of them are so alike that there’s almost no way to tell one from the other. Almost. Others have practically nothing in common, to such an extent that if you saw them, you would have never believed that they were, at some point in the past, not two separate worlds, but one.

This is a story about the Gabriel who lost his Sam Winchester, and found a Sam Winchester, shredded into billions of pieces, scattered across the multiverse. It wasn’t his Sam Winchester, but still, he couldn’t just watch a Sam Winchester fade into nothing. So he picked up a piece of him, smaller than stardust, and then another, and another. And he started putting this Sam Winchester back together.

This is a story about two beings finding each other against all odds. They were drawn together by one of the fundamental laws of the multiverse, the one we all have encountered at some point in our lives, a tiny part of this law known to the human beings in any world as coincidence.

This is a story of how they met.

And everything that happened next.

Summary: Angels ruined the world. They slaughtered half of humanity in their prizefight, and didn’t bother to stick around to clean up their mess. The human survivors crawl towards a slow death from a crop blight that starves them, and relentless dust storms that choke the air from their lungs. Despite the odds, Gabriel Novak manages to cobble together a halfway decent life for his family. But any illusion of normality crumbles away when a half-dead archangel from another universe drops out of the sky. He says his name is Samael, and no matter how much Gabriel doesn’t like angels, this one just might save the world. (Human!Gabriel/Archangel!Sam)

Warnings: Canon-typical violence, sexual content
Summary: Sam and Dean are using the Men of Letters Bunker as their haven from the world, when one day an uninvited and totally unexpected archangel - one who should still be dead - turns up at their kitchen table asking if there’s room to spend the night. Made cautious by their shared history, and despite his easy smile, Sam suspects that all is not well with the suddenly resurrected archangel.

Unfortunately however, monsters don’t wait on such things, and after Dean is forced to go off in search of a missing hunter friend, Sam must work on both the case of a potentially murderous fairy, as well as figuring out exactly what he feels for the archangel that’s suddenly very much back in his life. And if that’s not enough it soon becomes clear that Gabriel may well be keeping secrets.

A mid-season 8 canon divergence fic wherein Gabriel returns, and Sam Winchester must deal with the fall out for both of them.

Summary: Sam’s just ejected Gadreel from his body, and now he and Dean are trying to work out their many issues as they always do- by ignoring them and hoping they’ll go away soon. Thankfully, they have something to distract them: Castiel’s stolen Grace has made him an angel again, and he needs help opening Heaven’s Gates.

One day while researching, Sam finds an old spell that will restore Heaven and let the angels go back home. Only problem is, the spell can only be carried out by an archangel. Opening the Cage to free Michael and Lucifer isn’t an option, and Raphael isn’t the easiest to deal with, which leaves them with Gabriel. And Gabriel’s dead.

Well, he was.

Word Count: 20,028
Warnings: Graphic Depictions of Violence
Summary: “Contrary to what his best friend Charlie thinks, Sam is perfectly fine. He’s definitely not still messed up from his previous relationship and it’s definitely not bleeding into his everyday life. In fact, his everyday life is going great. He’s in law school, he has a decent job and a shared apartment with cool people. He’s even met a cute police investigator called Gabriel who, against all odds, seems interested in him.

Of course, he wouldn’t be a Winchester if something didn’t come along and f**k it all up. And he wouldn’t be Sam Winchester if that something wasn’t as absurd and horrifying as a serial killer, a killer that seems to be connected to him…”

Warnings: Explicit Sexual Content
Summary: There was a strong possibility getting blackout drunk on a Tuesday night wasn’t the brightest idea Gabriel had come up with…but it was the cans of spray paint and the bulk-sized container of chocolate sauce that did him in. Oh, and the cops who’d been called. Plus the little charge of “resisting arrest,” tacked onto his “drunk and disorderly.”

He could deal with all of that, really. What he couldn’t deal with was facing his “court appointed attorney,” who was none other than Sam Winchester.

Since it was this asshat who turned their three years of happy domestic bliss into a break up - in three months, flat.

Gabriel had done a damn good job of making himself unreachable, and it was just his luck he was now cornered with a pleading, begging pair of puppy-eyes “wanting to set things right.”

But there was no way it would be that easy. This was downright entrapment, as far as Gabriel was concerned. Not to mention an excellent fucking reason to never drink again.

Summary: It all started because of a stupid lead Sam checked without backup. That was how he found himself caged, used and shrouded by darkness inside an omega trafficking ring. The torture continued for months, until Dean finally unearthed the operation and saved them. While Sam sought justice in court for all the victims, he unwittingly became a media sensation. Yet, all Sam wants is to fade into the background. Being buried alive puts life in perspective. His dream of traveling seems impossible, so he gets creative. After all, he’s got the cash from a massive settlement. Sam realizes he doesn’t have to ‘fly’ under the radar, maybe he could ‘ship off—raise anchor?’ Dean’s terrified of Sam disappearing again. He and his mate, Cas, decide to plant a Novak brother in Sam’s path secretly: as a hired bodyguard. It works, Sam and Gabriel set sail, Gabriel acting as a guide, captain and (covert) watchman…but complications arise. Complications, in the way that Sam learns to trust again and begins falling in love. Complications, in the way that all of Sam’s PTSD medications compromise his nose, because Gabriel is fucking positive: they’re true mates. A normal around-the-world cruise would be too much to ask for, of course
