Take Me Back To The Start by thingcalledlove

Derek had never intended to be named People’s Sexiest Man Alive. It just sort of happens.

Meanwhile in the year 2008, Dean has barely gotten used to being back in the land of the living when he gets the biggest shock of his life; the man he fell in love with when he was eighteen has seemingly come back from the grave as well, claiming to be an angel of the Lord.

Stay away from the light-beds. Stay in the deep.
It is the first thing hatchlings are taught the moment their fans unfurl and they can swim without their parents to buoy them along. It is the first rule, the first law. It is the beginning of every boogey-monster bedtime story told when they settle against the cliffs to sleep.
Castiel should have listened better.

11. Rock ‘n’ Roll Queer BarChasingRabbits 

Words: 126,650     Works: 11     Complete: Yes
Ellen and Jo Harvelle run Harvelle’s Roadhouse, a bar that unintentionally becomes a beacon for wayward queer souls.
Her employees: Dean, the smartass runaway with a big heart and bigger mouth; Castiel, the college drop-out turned hippie; his (surprisingly heterosexual) trouble-making brother Gabriel; and Charlie, who has been told several times that the back room is not to be used for after-hours Dungeons & Dragons games.
But there’s a lot of love in this place, and a new family for anyone who may otherwise be without.
Personal Rating: 11/10 (perfect characterization, perfect gritty reality of ‘happy ever after’ without being sad. Very much reminds my of my own life and relationship)

Completed: 2013-11-21     Words: 148,563     Chapters: 20/20
Captain Dean Winchester has everything he wants: an amazing brother, a great ship, a sweet fiancee, and a life dedicated to fighting in the war, protecting his country. He really has no intention of associating with the aviators, the dragon riders. What he doesn’t know is that no aviator ever has chosen his position in the army; he finds out when a newborn dragon, Castiel, chooses him to be his rider. Dean has no choice but to obey.
As Dean and Castiel join the order of aviators, Dean finds himself in a strange situation. There’s more to Castiel than meets the eye, the regiment he’s now a part of isn’t much, prophecies he’d always thought of as legends are creeping their way into his life, and fighting out of the sea is so complicated. Soon he realises that there’s more at stake than his own life, and there are far worse things than not surviving the next battle.

When he finds out that she went missing while working a case for his brother, Sam, however, he drops everything to drive out to Oakland and look for her.

"That bet list was the worst thing you’ve ever come up with, Gabe. If it wasn’t for it, I would never have thought about such things. It’s bad enough being an earthbound angel, it’s bad enough being considered a weirdo even by angel standards. Did I have to be gay as well? Do I even represent a minority or is it just me out there?"

22. The Supernatural Edification of Dean WinchesterOverlordoftheBees** WIP not abandoned! <3

Updated: 2015-01-25     Words: 133,771     Chapters:16/22
Based on TV Series “Afterlife”. Professor Castiel Novak (MA Berkeley, PhD Harvard) is an academic who has staked his credibility upon his ability to decompress and deconstruct the mythology surrounding mediums, clairvoyants and all things “new age spiritualist”. That is, until a routine trip with a graduate class brings him into contact with medium Dean Winchester: uniquely gifted, supremely abrasive and desperate for a way out. When Dean touches on the tragedy marring Castiel’s past, his neatly constructed worldview is decimated.
There is only a veil between life and death, as both well know. And as Castiel finds himself increasingly drawn to Dean, the fragility of that barrier is strained to its limit.
