hello! sorry to bother you (because i come here a lot, but your site is basically the thing that keeps me alive and gives me faith in humanity), but i was wondering if you knew of any good fics in which cas is a star? i really enjoyed 'ad astra' and 'the face of heaven', where cas is a star who comes down to see dean every now and then. i also read some fics which were crossovers with the movie 'stardust', but didn't enjoy those as much. thank you!

Hmm, we don’t actually know of too many. The ones that fit perfectly, you’ve likely read: 

the face of heaven. [T, 9,800 word count]

“This is the best day of my life,” Castiel tells him, when he comes back. “You’ve been so kind to me.” His cheeks are glowing a little from the cold, or maybe just because he’s an otherworldly being full of light. Dean doesn’t know. “If I burn another million years, I won’t forget it.”
“Oh,” says Dean. “Good.”
(In which Castiel is a fallen star.)

AO3 has a star castiel tag!

However, here are some resources and fics that don’t *quite* fit but we felt might satisfy you regardless. :)

From this ask about fics involving mythology, there’s a few where Cas is a diety:

A few other fics where Cas is “other” from the heavens/space/another realm/etc:

Reblog if you would read a book starring:

- demigirls or demiboys
- asexual and/or aromantic characters
- bisexual and/or biromantic characters - pansexual and/or panromantic characters - gender-fluid characters
- trans men and trans women
- demisexual and/or demiromantic characters
- characters that don’t consider themselves heterosexual or cisgender

Forever LOLing at the idea that Sansa inherited her interest in fashion...

…from Catelyn.

Sansa’s POVs almost always begin with a description her carefully picked-out outfit. She also pays much mind to what others are wearing.

Catelyn details her own clothes maybe two or three times in the entire series. She also rarely go into what others are wearing*.

You know who does mentions what they’re wearing in nearly evey POV chapter? Ned.

You know who’s POV noted what exact shade of green Cersei was wearing when she arrived in Winterfell? Remembered the fine detail of the golden stags Renly liked to embroider in his capes and doublets? Explained to us the modest colours and small mockingbird pin that Littlefinger affects when Renly is teasing Baelish’s plain clothes when really the teasing should have been enough to illustrate that Littlefinger doesn’t like ostentatious clothes, but I guess the details and fabrics of court worth mentioning anyways? Fucking Ned.

Ned kinda thinks dismissively about showy dress, but he that doesn’t mean he doesn’t care about fashion. His own personal taste is just more polished and subtle**, which serves the narrative function of highlighting the wasteful pomp of King’s Landing. Someone who doesn’t care about fashion period, probs wouldn’t have noted these differences at all.

Sansa totes inherited her fashinonista ways from Ned, guys.

*[aside: tbh the only time I explicitly remember Cat going into detail about others’ clothes is when meeting Roslin Frey, whom she notes is wearing a fine light blue and delicate lacey dress. You could argue she only even noted this for practical reasons; Roslin is marrying her brother politically and Cat is instantly measuring the Frey’s motives behind this by assesing how well they’ve bothered to present the bride. Cat is actually far more ‘meh’ of the trappings of traditional noblewoman-dom than we give her credit for: she’s not snobby or uncomfortable talking to smallfolk, getting upset at Edmure for not remembering the name of the old village woman who gave them treats as kids. She directly challenges Robb for unconsciously thinking that daughter are less important than sons. In AGOT, she’s all ‘fuck modesty’ when walking naked around Maester Luwin (I mean, he delivered all her babies, he’s seen it all so what’s the point of airs???). long aside done]

**(I remember a lotta greys and silvers, but with nifty capes and belts. Smoky chic, ned!)
