In a rare twist of fate, Castiel was actually in the same vicinity as the Winchesters when another mass hunter’s gathering was announced. Evidently other hunters had no problem with networking. According to Mary, the gatherings happened at least once a month, with plenty of hunting tips, advice for hospitals that would look the other way with injuries and, more importantly, plenty of free beer.
While Dean still preferred to keep his distance, Sam rather enjoyed the few gatherings they’d manage to attend. In part because the guy geeked out over any transfer of knowledge, and in part because a certain Eileen was often present as well.
“Besides,” Sam argued as he packed his duffel, “It would be nice for other people to meet Cas for a change, being an angel and all.”
Dean glared. Sam had a good point. “Fine,” he muttered, before turning to Cas, who merely watched their conversation with confusion, “But we’re going to get you in some new clothes before we go.”
“Why?” Castiel tilted his head, protectively brushing his white and blue striped tie.
“Cuz we want you to come off as relatable,” Dean rolled his eyes, “And you aren’t doin’ that looking like an accountant. So.” He gestured vaguely with his hands in an attempt to make his point.
Castiel opened and closed his mouth, trying to come up with something to say before meekly poking his head into Sam’s closet instead. Sam chuckled, setting down a shirt he was folding. “You’ll have better luck wearing Dean’s stuff.”
With a very serious expression, Castiel emerged from the closet with a nod and wordlessly made his way into Dean’s room.
“What’s he like as a boyfriend?” “He is so good-hearted and sweet. I brought up loving scavengers hunts maybe once a long time ago, and then for my last birthday, he made me a giant one that ended with all my favorite things.”
“Trip and Skye are friends. Their bond started to grow even more and get even stronger. When I ran into the temple, she was even like, “No, what are you doing, get out!” She’s strong herself, she doesn’t need Trip, but Trip is like, “I got to get her out of here.” If the tables were reversed, I would feel the exact same way. I hope that the audience will see that as well. This wasn’t something that she wanted to happen. I think right then, I was defending Skye. She would have my back like would have her back.” - B.J.
