• Castiel: Sam is great, he’s just the best– *trips* *thousands of pictures of Sam spill out from pockets* sorry these are mine, i just love him so much *slips on a pile of pictures* i have never met anyone more lovely *more pictures fall from his pockets as he tries to collect the ones already on the ground* it’s so good to have him around i love him so much

One of the things I loved about Crowley’s ‘Make it four’ comment is the understated admission of the sheer difference in power between an angel (a seraph) and a demon. 

When angels first appeared, most demons seemed to be terrified of them, and I think we had a couple of comments indicating that angels hadn’t walked the Earth for thousands of years or something? But then, slowly, angels became a thing like any other, and this always bothered me. I mean, I can understand Crowley’s attitude in dissing Cas and generally making fun of everyone he meets even when those creatures are ten times more powerful than he is (like Dean, Crowley has such a low self-esteem and puts so much care into his BAMF persona as to look almost suicidal), but I also feel most of the time angels are seen as less awesome than they actually are out of plot-related reasons or bad characterization. So, well - the idea that our underhanded and fearsome King Of Hell - someone without any moral qualms whatsover (and let’s go with that) and someone whose powers are magnified by his own position in Hell and three centuries spent amassing knowledge and magical objects - would still acknowledge himself as being worth about one third of a mutilated and guilt-ridden seraph - that makes me very happy.

After all, we all know demons are terrifying; what Supernatural did really well was reminding us of another age-old fact: that angels may be the representation of the divine on Earth, but despite this (or perhaps because of this) they are just as terrifying as demons.

Summary: A rival family is stealing the Patriarca Family’s Boston shipments and collecting a neat payday five hours away on the streets of Brooklyn and Manhattan. But their Don, Dean Winchester, is wary about reaching out to a long-time New York ally. The Russian Bratvas just do things differently. The young Pakhan, Castiel Krushnic, is hard-nosed and very violent and while violence is mainstay in any underworld family, this boss has a special flair for it. It leaves an uncomfortable taste in Don Winchester’s mouth.
But encouraged by his Consigliere, Bobby Singer, he finally relents. The Pakhan is quite different from what The Don was expecting. Dean learns the man’s secret quite by accident and decides to keep it to himself. They have bigger fish to fry as they discover traitors in both of their organizations while their enemy ups the stakes for each of them. And after members of each family are kidnapped, the stakes get even higher.
Betrayed from within leads to exposing long held secrets and when long denied desires are unleashed it puts each of them on a path that will change their lives forever.

I love mafia stories and this one has everything: violence and betrayal, trusted friends and bitter rivals, territories and alliances. Most of all, The Families. Dean and Cas are powerful and violent men, in a world where even a hint of weakness is unacceptable. When they meet, it is bloody. Dean is no saint, but Cas as the head of the Russian Bratva was fucking scary – and sexy as hell. Oh…and he is an omega.

Yup - this is an a/b/o story, but man what an a/b/o story! The authors provide a great primer to their world in the first chapter and many of the tropes we love are there such as true mates, scenting (in a really cool way), and such. But far more traditions are shattered than preserved. This story brings together the gritty, dark underbelly of organized crime with the romantic draw of a/b/o in a way that I really enjoyed. 

Finally, this fic is a great example of the cooperation in a DCBB with two authors working with their betas and the artist to bring us this well researched, engaging story. I can’t finish this review without specifically mentioning the the >20 graphic art works created for this fic, so be sure to check them out

Having a baby wasn’t a part of your original plan for your life. Being a hunter meant that you give up things such as a family and a normal life. Although, normal still didn’t apply to your situation. You were currently 7 months pregnant with a baby boy. The baby was healthy and using your bladder as a trampoline on a daily basis. The part that wasn’t normal was his father. Your boyfriend was the angel, Castiel. You weren’t exactly sure what that would mean for your baby but you both would make sure he was loved and cared for like any other child.

Cas was already a great father. He had been extremely involved with the pregnancy and often laid his hands over your stomach to check on the baby’s well-being, making sure you both were truly healthy. Your current predicament was deciding on a theme for the nursery, both having wildly different opinions.
