Are there any fics about dean coming out of the closet?
Why didn’t I see this before? I’m sorry, I appear to be blind. Let me see…
Inevitable Homoeroticism in Spanish Romantic Heroes - college AU in which Dean is a phd student and Cas is a professor. Love and awkward confrontations with Dean’s internalised homophobia ensue. One of my all-time favourites. The scene in which he finally comes out will make you have to have a little lie down. 41k, rated E.
Waves - another college AU (most coming out fics seem to be!) in which Cas is based around 2014!Cas and Dean is based around self-loathing oh God oh God why aren’t I straight Dean. Really well-written and it also has a short epilogue, which is always nice. 54k, rated M (although it does have scenes that most people would probably slap an E rating on). Warnings for attempted suicide.
Flying in Circles Inside a Jar - set in canon, I like how this author writes Sam’s reaction. It’s how I’d imagine he’d really respond. 11k, rated E.
Dean Winchester is a 100% Heterosexual, Manly Man of Masculinity - again, one of mine, so consider this very secondary to the others. I’m shoving it here because I wrote it as a request to someone who wanted a coming out fic, so it fits the brief. College AU, rated T, 10k.
Hey, i was wondering if you know of any long fics that have sabriel in them also...
I do indeed! I also have a secondary pairing tag you can look at as well as this list as there’s quite a few Sabriel fics in that :)
Start Quoting Shakespeare and We’re Done - 15k. Dean is a mechanic, Cas is a librarian, Sam is in a love-hate flirtation with Gabriel, who owns a chocolaterie. As you might be able to tell, it’s so fluffy you’ll die. One of my favourite Destiel + Sabriel fics. Rated T.
A Cold Academic Hell - in which Dean and Sam are both students (Dean is a mature student, Sam is a junior) and Cas and Gabriel both work at the university. The series is 114k words and a warning - it was never finished. What was written of it is really good, and I genuinely enjoyed reading it, but be aware that it ends very abruptly. Rated T.
In His Image - just wow, really. 153k, rated E, this fic is basically Gabriel’s history, present and future. It’s incredibly well written and Destiel and Sabriel are both explored in very interesting ways. I can’t recommend this one enough.
Black Swans - sassy Gabriel. I think that says a lot about this fic, but I’ll also add that it’s deliciously plotty, written with a distinctive and interesting style and should probably be made into a film at some point (although maybe with some tactful ‘fade to black’ moments). 66k, rated E.
How (thanks to Gabriel) Dean and Castiel (accidentally) raised each other (and Sam) - starts off as a kid fic, but is so much more than that. Another fantastically written one, this spans all of Dean and Sam’s lives, from childhood to adulthood, and it’s just wonderful. 67k, rated E.

Title: Words Are Not Enough
Author: canyousayhot on LJ
Summary: “It all starts with a text message.” aka the one where Arthur and Eames text each other constantly and then it gets sexy.
Warnings (if applicable): 16,028
reasons to rec: One of the sexiest fics in fandom but also one of the most fun - this fic makes incredible use out of the many silly and sexy photographs Tom Hardy has taken of himself and uses them as picture messages from Eames to Arthur. Eames is an incorrigible flirt and Arthur can’t help but like it - I think my favorite part of this fic is that despite Arthur’s reticence in the face of Eames’ upfront flirting, Eames still admits to finding Arthur ridiculously sexy in everything that he does. The author manages the perfect balance between funny and meaningful and ridiculously attractive. One of my favorites. <3

Word Count: 28,000
Summary: A notorious serial killer returns after a three-year hiatus, reminding Detective Arthur Moss of the infamous case he couldn’t close. But when the FBI becomes involved, Arthur is forced to work side-by-side once again with Special Agent Daniel Eames, a man who knows Arthur better than Arthur himself will ever admit. Both men must confront their past and heal old wounds in order to bring a psychopath to justice.
Warnings (if applicable): violence, disturbing imagery
reasons to rec: Definitely one of the more intense fics I’ve ever read, foxxcub manages to paint a very clear picture of Arthur and Eames’ past relationship without overwhelming you with unnecessary details. There is such a highly charged atmosphere between the two characters and every exchange between them leaves you hoping for something to break so that they can figure their shit out already and fall back in love - but the resolution to the fic is perfect. foxxcub skillfully manages the line between intense action and emotional moments making this fic a definite read. (Also, there is a puppy. If you need anything more than that, then I’m sorry, this blog isn’t for you. :P)

Summary: Arthur wakes up and realizes the last ten years of his life have been a dream. He is nineteen, and he can barely remember where he is. What he can remember is the ghost of Eames’ hands pressed down on his chest trying frantically to stop the blood flooding up around his fingers as Arthur died (as he woke up).
Warnings (if applicable): non-linear narrative, talk of torture and violence
reasons to rec: This fic’s intensity is really breathtaking. Arthur wakes at age nineteen from a PASIV induced dream by the military. He has dreamt ten years of his life - ten years with Eames. The fic alternates between ‘then’ and ‘now’ and you read with your heart in your throat as Arthur slowly finds his way into becoming the man he was as he hunts for his Eames - because Arthur is still convinced that Eames is out there and real. Really heartwrenching stuff and so, so good. (And with a happily ever after!)
