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:
- Ad Astra
- The Star and The Catfish (poetry/lore series explained here that eventually led to All Things Shining)
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:
