Forget-Me-Not Blues

Sam and Jess are getting married and Dean couldn’t be any happier for them. Honestly, they’re kind of disgustingly perfect for each other and Dean’s pretty damn excited about staying with them the week before the wedding. He’s Sam’s best man, of course, and he doesn’t even mind that Jess has her own best man to share in all the organisational duties. The more the merrier, right?

Except Dean must have done something to epically piss off the universe because Jess’s best man just happens to be Castiel friggin’ Novak. He’s got even hotter since High School, but apparently no friendlier and if Cas wants to spend the week pretending like they’ve never met before? Fine. Two can play at that game.

Enter Dean Winchester. A chance encounter with the man has the power to change Castiel’s life - and in the end, maybe, just maybe, it will help him finally understand and accept who he is and what he’s meant to do.

FOREVER PLACE || DCBB 2014

Coming Soon: November 11,2014

In the face of Cas’ vanishing act into the depths of a Leviathan-laden reservoir and the countless Leviathan spirits free in the water system of the northern United States, Sam convinces a guilt-ridden Dean to come with him on a recovery case in Savannah, Georgia. The slow relaxation of a hot southern summer changes something imperceptibly in both of them and something makes them want to stay, even after the case is done. In the wake of this change, Dean meets a cashier at a local barbecue hut. He goes by James, but Dean knows him as something else: Castiel. A Castiel without memories, who quickly falls for the mysterious man with green eyes who frequents his work under the guise of loving barbecue (and peaches). They fall in love, slow like summer, under the hanging Spanish moss of an abandoned plantation that has fallen under the spell of Cas’ latent grace.

a season 7 canon-divergent au that explores what would have happened if cas had perhaps made his own way out of the river.

“Why are you here?”

Dean blinked, considering lying but seeing no point in it. “I’m supposed to be slaying the dragon that lives here.”

“Ah. Well, go ahead then, I won’t stop you.”

“Well—where is it?”

The guy just looked at him, eyebrows raised.

Okay, try again. “Who are you?” And there’s the question of the hour. Clearly, seeing as the man finally gave Dean his full attention, standing up suddenly and stepping forward so that Dean found himself face to face with the guy, mere inches away. He couldn’t make himself step away, back down, break eye contact, even blink.

“My name is Castiel,” he began. “You probably only know me as the dragon.”

(Dean/Castiel fairy tale AU in which Dean is a prince who goes to slay a dragon, and Castiel is cursed to turn into a dragon every night.)

et florum magica: (And the Magic of Flowers) 

 When Castiel Novak moves to the tiny town of Fox Hollow, he’s looking for a fresh start. Only his past seems to be–quite literally–haunting him, and even through his best efforts of making new friends and settling into a new life, there’s a darkness lurking in the shadows that he can’t seem to shake. Everything gets that much more strange when he meets an seemingly otherworldly being named Dean during a walk through the forest, and what started as a simple friendship becomes increasingly complicated for both parties. But like it’s residents, Fox Hollow has secrets, and things quickly become life-or-death when one of these secrets finally steps out of the shadows and into the light.

  “What can you do?”

This question leaves Dean looking rather smug. He moves forward and Cas startles, unused to seeing a being move the way he does. His eyes are immediately drawn to the ground, where mayflowers spring from the earth where Dean’s hooves had been. He raises his hand and a swarm of hummingbirds appear from seemingly nowhere, buzzing about his face before settling on his antlers like birds on a telephone wire.

Then he grins and drops his arm and they fly away in a hurry, leaving just Dean, not a single hair out of place.

“So you grow flowers and… summon birds?”

Dean’s smile drops.

Summary: He didn’t know what he expected. Maybe piles and piles of gold and treasure, closely guarded by a massive scaly beast, red or blue or black and breathing fire. Maybe with wings, maybe not. Maybe it would have red eyes and maybe it would attack as soon as it saw Dean. He was expecting—well, he was expecting a dragon.
Not… this.
“This” being a young man with dark hair, too blue eyes, and a tilt to his head. He didn’t… look like a dragon. He just looked confused.

Awake My Soul | written by houseofharvelle | art by queernatural

“So the hot guy is -”

“An angel.”

“And he’s from -”

“A parallel universe.”

“And he wants you to -”

“Kill the devil.”

At first Cas is just the hot stranger at the Roadhouse while Dean is working one night. What begins as harmless flirting turns into a multi-verse of death and destruction and a Bobby who doesn’t like him, where Dean is the only one who can do the most important job around - kill the devil. And people, people like Cas who matter more than they should, are keeping secrets from him. Important secrets. Soul-crushing secrets.

Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 36,686 words
Warnings: infidelity, violence, references to prostitution, threats of rape and violence, top!Dean, bottom!Cas.

Summary: When Dean Winchester gets out of prison, he immediately returns to working for his old boss, Crowley. He’s only a driver and enforcer, following Crowley to heel, but it means getting his foot back in the door.

What Dean doesn’t expect is that his childhood sweetheart, Castiel, is now married to Crowley.

Dean can’t stop thinking about Castiel and, when Crowley confides in him that he believes Castiel is having an affair, Dean finds himself increasingly jealous, imagining Castiel with another man.

He doesn’t realize that Castiel’s trapped in his marriage, unhappy and determined to escape from Crowley. Neither does he realize that there’s only ever been one man in Castiel’s heart - Dean himself.

Love in the Wild by thursdaysfallenangel | art by mycolour

Yeah, okay, so Cassie breaking up with him hadn’t exactly improved Dean’s life or anything, but that didn’t mean Sam had to force him onto a wannabe-Survivor dating reality show. Who actually meets someone they like on those things? Not anyone Dean’s ever heard of. Meeting Castiel Novak is not going to change that. Castiel agrees one hundred percent with Dean. Dating games are all for show, and that’s exactly what he’s here for - to show off his art work. Maybe the publicity will get him back on the New York art circuit. Only problem is, Dean Winchester is distracting, and Castiel is having a hard time painting anything at all. Both Dean and Castiel refuse to find Love in the Wild. With the whole world conspiring against them, it’s going to be hard to keep that promise.

Coming November 26th, 2014 for DCBB 2014.

turn myself into a gun - deancas divergent au (written for the 2014 dcbb)

Detroit was a kingdom of isolation. The city was surrounded by sprawling grass fields, and it rose out of them without any warning, like a mirage in a desert. The war had been terrible, the rest of the world destroyed in a pointless struggle for power, but for some reason, Detroit had stood its ground. In the interest of peacekeeping, the city was divided into five distinct factions, based upon the virtues of its inhabitants. This is the world Dean Winchester grew up in, a world that was turned upside-down by a fallible test, ladies that got shit done, and a fearless boy named Castiel.

DCBB14 » The Temporary Ambition of Generous Messiahs

Author: emrysdean

Artist: teamabodo

Dean Winchester knew that he was not fit to be Heaven’s Righteous Man, or their Michael’s true vessel, or anything else, for that matter. He wasn’t fit to go hunting with his estranged brother, Sam - a man he hadn’t seen in fifteen years. And he really wasn’t fit to be having discussions on the meaning of love and free will with an angel. All he wanted to do was stay dead, or be given the space he needed to grieve. But luck wasn’t on Dean Winchesters’ side.

AU in which Sonny sent John away at Dean’s request. Dean took Robin to the dance that night, and years later he married her. Only, the course of love never does run smooth and sometimes life steps in. Robin got sick, and she was dying, so Dean did the only thing he knew how to do - sell his soul, getting five years for his trouble. A month after his deal came due, Robin passed away. Three months later, Dean woke up in the cemetery he’d been buried in. Lost and confused, Dean is told he’s supposed to stop the apocalypse. 

“God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.” (Corinthians, 5:21)

In the wake of the modern decoupling of monstrosity from appearance, the monster can be anyone and anywhere, and we only know it when it springs upon us or emerges from within us.

↳ Dean Winchester, surgeon turned sober companion, has been assigned his new client - the brilliant, if standoffish, Castiel Novak - for the next six weeks. What he expects is late night searches for needles and booze, playing chaperone to sobriety meetings, maybe the occasional stern talk or two. Instead, he finds himself working with Castiel for the New York Police Department. Feverishly helping to solve the case of the elusive M, an as-good-as-they-get serial killer who seems to be following Castiel around the globe, Dean and Castiel find themselves trapped in a cat and mouse game where the consequence of not being quick enough could be deadly.
