Castiel just barely slips out the door into the hallway and turns the knob as he closes it so the latch doesn’t make a sound. The light is always on in the hallway, and Dean always wakes up if too much of it pours into his room, so Castiel has mastered the art of slipping through the smallest space possible.
He breathes a sigh of relief once he’s in the hallway.
A small voice to his right lets out an amused laugh. He turns to see a particularly tiny woman wearing a very large plaid shirt and nothing else. Well, he supposes she could be wearing shorts under the shirt. It really is very big on her.
“You must be Castiel,” she says rather loudly, mispronouncing his name just slightly.
He walks over to her with a finger to his lips.
She puts her hand over her mouth in embarrassment before signing, I’m deaf.
Castiel mouths an “oh” before dropping his head and laughing. He then pops his head back up fast and mouths, “Are you Eileen?”
She nods eagerly and signs, You’ve heard about me?
Sam has mentioned you a few times, he signs back. He says you’re a very good hunter.
Her face lights up. You’re damn right I am. Still, that’s very sweet of him.
So, are you two…? Castiel looks back toward Sam’s room and then down at Eileen’s shirt.
Eileen’s eyes widen in embarrassment. He’s asleep. I was just going to the bathroom.
I was heading to the kitchen for a cup of tea. Would you like some?
Is there caffeine in it?
Not at 4 in the morning.
Eileen smiles and gives him a thumbs up before moving past him toward the bathroom. Castiel watches her go for a second before it hits him.
He looks down at his plain black t-shirt and too-small boxer briefs and wonders if Eileen could tell that these clothes aren’t his. And that he came out of Dean’s room instead of one of the countless other extra bedrooms in the bunker.
By the time Eileen pads into the kitchen, Castiel has two mugs ready with decaf teabags in them and he’s standing at the stove staring at the pot so he can pull it off the burner before it whistles.
It’s only a minute longer before Cas pours the water into the mugs and takes a seat across from Eileen at the kitchen table.
You’re an angel, aren’t you? Eileen asks as her tea steeps.
Mostly just proud of myself for not skipping this workout. Speedwork straight up scares me, especially when I’m running solo and have every opportunity to quit or cut reps.

- torchwood is more or less a nuisance to the police, so alec runs into rose and her team already at a site way too many times
- rose tyler had a no-dating-coworkers policy after mickey smith, which only ended in an awkward friendship
- she made an exception to that rule to go to dinner with hardy, since they needed to exchange information about their most recent case anyway (which turned into two other dinners, a night over, and a bit more interest in working with each other after all)
- the first time he sees rose tyler naked he almost keels over oh my god
- “i always knew you liked blondes” “quiet, miller”
- ok but hardy has the craziest bed head and he always wakes up all confused and shit and its the cutest thing rose has ever seen
- daisy adores rose, and they bond over their experience with divorced parents
- rose uses his first name when she’s super serious or angry, because she knows it’ll get his attention
- he brings her mum wine and flowers and chocolates when they first meet
- she’s there for his doctor’s visits, his surgery, his recovery, and sometimes when he’s hooked to the machine & she smiles or laughs his heartbeat picks up a little
- “i don’t think i could ever live without you.” “why don’t you marry me, then?”
- they are one amazing crime-fighting team: she does the action stuff, he does the legal stuff
OMG YES BEST PAIRING BLESS YOU I need to write more about them
send me a pairing and I’ll tell you who:
falls asleep on the couch
Both. Missy falls asleep when they’re watching TV because she’s like a child on a sugar high; first totally energetic and excited and almost impossible to slow down and then unconscious very quickly. Clara likes to stroke her hair and keep watching when it happens. Clara falls asleep reading on the couch sometimes and Missy just keeps on tinkering around her, not bothering to be quiet.
makes friends with the neighbors
Clara tries being friendly and inviting when they first move in, but Missy keeps weirding them out with a total lack of boundaries and the things she tends to say, so in the end Clara just apologises a lot and tries to keep out of their way.
is the adventurous eater
Both of them. Missy has odd taste in general, but Clara likes to try everything at least once.
hogs the covers at night
Missy. She’s an all-or-nothing kind of gal. If she ever does sleep, she takes everything. That includes Clara. Surprisingly, she’s a hugger, so Clara has no choice but to stay as close as possible anyway. It works.
forgets to do the dishes
Missy. She doesn’t forget, she just doesn’t do them. She has more interesting things to do. Plus, Clara is exciting when she’s mad.
tries to surprise their partner more often
Clara. Missy isn’t trying, she just does, and Clara dislikes losing in that department, so she does her best to outdo her by coming up with ludicrous things to show her and entertain her with.
leaves dirty laundry on the floor
Neither. They’re both very neat people, and Missy cares about her clothes too much to treat them like that. Clara doesn’t like the chaos.
stays up til 2 AM reading
Clara. Missy watches her and does something else (not entirely legal) in the meantime.
sings in the shower
Missy. She’s still trying to get Clara to do duets with her, but so far she’s been unsuccessful. One day.
takes the selfies
Missy. At first Clara was annoyed, but now she’s kinda into it, even if she does still grumble when Missy forces her into a picture with her. It’s mostly for show.
plans date night
Neither. Date nights just happen and are generally unplanned. Mostly Missy just drags Clara outside without an explanation and she has the worst (best) night of her life or Clara plans a perfect date/trip for weeks that Missy somehow ends up destroying at the last minute. She always makes up for it though.
Everyone: Ging Freecss saved my life. He was an angel that came from heaven. Truly a miracle, this man. Just to be in his presence is a blessing. Such a wonderful, inspirational man
Ging, at one point probably: trips down 50 feet of stairs, twists ankle, gets dust in eye, coughs uncontrollably for three minutes, brushes twelve years’ worth of dirt off clothes, sniffs twice, struggles to stand, squints with tears in eyes, hands on knees, legs wobbling: yo
