A/N: Grandma Irene is crazy and I want to be her. Hope you guys like this part! The feedback I’ve gotten so far has been so great, thank you so much!!!!

(Ok so here’s the deal, in Parts 2 & 3 I somehow forgot to give my Beka credit for the help, reading through, advice, and just in general listening to me whine, which is just pure fuckery on my part. @impala-dreamer please forgive me? You guys should all know that this wouldn’t be happening without her.)


Looking up when she heard the door slam, Y/N’s jaw dropped. Standing just inside was a tall man. Not just some guy, but like a one look at him and a girl gets all kinds of ideas m-a-n. Holy shit was he gorgeous. Just gut punch beautiful. He had walked in with someone else, but try as she might there was no tearing her eyes away.

Then she heard it. Even over all the other noise in the bar she could hear the sing-song voice of her grandma. Of course she’d taken notice, and she was already plotting. It felt like time was crawling and going at warp speed all at once.

“Oh for fuck’s sake.” Y/N hadn’t stopped staring. She wasn’t even confident she had blinked, at one point she wiped her mouth just to make sure she wasn’t a drooling mess.

And of course they were now following her grandmother to the table. Why wouldn’t that be happening?

Hi, I was wondering if you have any good College AU's?

So We’ve done a few college AU recs lately. Here’s a link to our College AU tag and College roommate tag.
I’m trying not to rec the same fics again and again so you should also check those! I know I said before that I’m trying to be more positive about these college/high school fics, but it’s hard guys! I know I always complain about the cliché plots and the over the top drama (which I shouldn’t since I’m cool with it in other AU settings)… I guys my beef with these is that they tend to all be super long which is annoying if the fic (in my opinion) is just average. It’s easier to forgive an okay fic if it’s less than 30k of words. But that said, there were a lot of gems in here as well so it’s not like this whole rec was a bust for me. Like always, I hope you’ll find something worth your while here and I’ll try to give this genre yet another try in the future! - Admin A

Admin’s assessment: ★ ★ ★  

Admin A’s notes: This is one of those fics that when I was reading it, I was so enticed with it and almost got emotional at times, but once it was over and I had to write my notes I felt kind of indifferent. Lol this always happens to me with HS fics and sometimes with college fics. I’m just too old to relate to some of the drama. You guys will know what I mean once you get older (lol if not then I’m just a grumpy old granny inside that can’t be happy with anything). I don’t know. I feel like I need to be on the right mood to read these to fully appreciate them.

Summary: When Castiel and Dean meet for the first time in the new dorm room they’ll have to share, they’re sure they are screwed for the year. Despite Cas’ doubts, he finds in Dean a good friend, and eventually, something more. There was always something mysterious about Dean, though, which Cas figured he’ll never discover…

It all goes wrong the night Dean’s brother shows up and Dean walks off with him, never to come back.

Until one night, Cas wakes up with a knife against his throat.

Admin A’s notes: You guys know I’m not really into the light/humor fics, not that this is really suppose to be full on humor, but it made me smile as I read it. So that’s a lot coming from me. Also the smut was awesome and sort of funny.

Summary:  Dean and Cas are in different engineering programs at their grad school, but they share a physics class. Castiel is certain that they couldn’t possibly share anything more, while Dean does his very best to convince him otherwise.

Lol I feel like the more I dislike a fic in these school genres the better they are for everyone else!

Summary: Dean Winchester is the average guy: football, college, kid brother, nice car, girls and beer; his life is black and white, that is until he meets Castiel Collins: pretentious, slutty, sweater-wearing genius, who won’t even take the time to look up at him from his obscure novel while he insults him. And then everything is shades of gray and Dean is drowning.

Summary: Dean is a grad student studying for his MA in Spanish literature, and he’s pretty content with his sexuality as it is – that is, fairly undefined and also secret. His attraction to Castiel, a professor to the undergrads, doesn’t seem like a big deal until it becomes a very big deal, and Dean scrambles to keep his head above water.

This one worked for me at the time I read it and I think I have recced this before in our stripper AU posts. Ps. If stripper AU isn’t your thing, I still encourage you to give this a try since it’s essentially a college roommate fic!

Summary:  After an awkward accidental encounter at a local strip club, Castiel discovers his college roommate, Dean, has a secret career as a stripper, and their relationship begins to change and a bond begins to form. They face the joys and challenges of life together and discover along the way how deeply they’ve come to care for each other.

Which obviously means that you should all go and read it like yesterday since it’s probably the best fic in the list for everyone but me :’D

Summary: On Tuesdays and Thursdays every week, Castiel, a misfit freshman, waits outside his Physics lab to catch a glimpse of the senior Frat boys as they file out before his class. One Thursday, he notices a new face amongst the Letterman jackets. A crooked smile, a devious glint in two green eyes… Castiel is done for before he’s even begun.

A Dictionary of SPN Characters: Dean

Dean Winchester was born January 24, 1979

He was named after his maternal grandmother, Deanna Campbell

 Loves his ‘67 Chevy Impala, who he calls “Baby”

 Feels responsible for taking care of Sam Winchester, his brother, who is his only living blood family, most of the time
 Dean loves pie, beer, and fast food, and mocks his brother for eating “rabbit food”

emotionally constipated

kind of hates himself

● istotallyinlovewithhisbestfriendCastiel

The most hilarious thing of the episode is Toni’s face when Mary shows up.

You think you have all the Winchesters chained up?

Another Winchester shows up!

And in the previous episode she thought Dean was dead, and bam he turns out to be alive. She knew Mary was dead, and bam she turns out to be alive.

She must be terrified. How many Winchesters could turn out to be alive at this point?? When do they end?? Are Winchesters infinite??

(Do you realize how many family members have been resurrected at some point? Sam, Dean, John, Samuel, Mary, Adam, plus different kinds of ‘being back’ like Henry time traveling and showing up ‘later’ than his time so to speak - and let’s not even mention the adoptive Winchesters lol - I wouldn’t even be surprised if Deanna Campbell or Millie Winchester came back at some point… or even some Winchester ancestor from the 1400 or something, nothing is impossible at this point lmao)

(Wait, a Winchester from the 1400 would be from the British isles… mmm… could happen given the theme of the season…)

What about every ancestor of the Winchesters since prehistory comes back… infinite Winchesters)


 Listen to me. Your name – your name is Mary Sandra Campbell, okay? You were born December 5, 1954, to Samuel and Deanna Campbell. Your father, he bounced around a lot for, uh, work, and you bounced right along with him, and you ended up in Lawrence, Kansas….. March 23, 1972, you walked out of a movie theater – “Slaughterhouse-Five.” You loved it, and you bumped into a big Marine and you knocked him flat on his ass. You were embarrassed, and he laughed it off, said you could make it up to him with a cup of coffee. So, you went to, uh, Mulroney’s and you talked and he was cute and he knew the words to every Zeppelin song, so when he asked you for your number, you gave it to him, even though you knew your dad would be pissed. That was the night that – that you met – John Winchester. August 19, 1975, you were married… in Reno. Your idea. A few years later, I came along, then Sammy. – Dean

I don’t know how I haven’t done a rec like this before since I have way too many fics where either Cas or Dean is some sort of a musician. I’ve done a Celebrity AU post before and there should be a few fics with one of them being a singer, so please check it out first:

Admin A’s notes: There cannot be an Au rec list without at least one almaasi fic in it. I don’t think I need to tell you how amazing everything she writes is + this has Dean in panties… Just thought you’d like to know!

Summary:  When some asshole hits a dog with his car and drives off, the first two people on the scene are Dean and Castiel. Castiel’s an FBI agent with a plane to catch, and he doesn’t have time to take the dog to the vet. Dean’s a musician, and he doesn’t have the money. An agreement is reached: Dean goes, Castiel pays, and they’ll exchange details and meet again to work things out. But who gets the dog? Sooner or later they’re going to realise that having shared custody of one pitbull isn’t ideal. She needs one home, not two. One stable, loving home…

Dean’s singing days are long bygone, but his crowd-pleasing skills haven’t waned one iota. Unexpectedly, Castiel finds himself in Dean’s bedroom; they take and they give, and discover that sometimes strangers can find love like this, too.

Admin A’s notes: I have to admit that it took my brain a few seconds to understand this fic when I started to read it. It was okay but not my favorite in this list.

Summary: The one thing that Castiel Novak can’t do is hear.

He excels in his job as an EMT despite the fact that he’s deaf and has never let anything hold him back from being at the top of his game.

That is, until he meets a certain man in the aftermath of a car accident.

The one thing Dean Winchester can’t do is touch.

Communication should be simple with the easy way that people can read each other’s thoughts through skin contact, but Dean outright refuses anything of the sort and much prefers the gentle caress of fingers on guitar strings.

That is, until his dreams of being a professional guitarist are shattered in the accident.

Even with the unfortunate circumstances of their meeting, a friendship grows and there is one thing they realize they can do for each other very well:

Summary: Castiel Novak is a musical prodigy, whose proficiency with the cello has earned him a spot at the prestigious Carver Academy, a musical college where only the best and brightest are admitted. His compartmentalized world is shaken, however, when Dean Winchester arrives, and things only get more confusing from there.

But although Dean makes Castiel feel scared in a way he has never felt before, it doesn’t take long before the two of them realize that despite their differences, or maybe even because of them, they make beautiful music together, in more ways than one.

Admin A’s notes: If you are like me and have read the summary but the mess with Anna has put you off from reading this, please stop whatever you had planned to do today and start reading. This is fantastic!

Summary: When home has nothing left to offer, Dean Winchester follows his brother out to the east coast. Sam has a new job in the Big Apple, and Dean has no idea what he wants. He’s never had much of a career, and his relationships have all felt like something’s missing. The brothers adopt a dog and Dean feels a spark for the blue-eyed volunteer Castiel Novak, but he knows he’ll never see him again.

A chance meeting with singer Anna Milton brings Dean to The Roadhouse, a struggling music lounge. Anna’s a flirt, but when it’s Castiel behind her at the piano, Dean can’t let him slip away again- except he’s not available, or so he thinks. Dean begins a rocky relationship with Anna, while Castiel becomes the best friend he’s ever known.

Except they both know it’s more than that. It’s everything.

As things fall apart with Anna, everything falls together with Castiel. But when disaster strikes, Dean and Castiel have to fight to hold on to the home and love they’ve found, or else risk losing it forever.


“Seeing you two singing together this morning? It’s so obvious, Castiel… The way you look at him? It’s like all those love songs you sing finally make sense.”

Summary: Castiel is one of the world’s biggest rock stars. Lead singer of The Garrison. He’s living a life of decadence, but he can’t come up with inspiration for their next album, and they’re supposed to be back in the studio in a matter of weeks. It’s no secret that The Garrison’s music is mostly about Castiel’s sex life, and the man experiments in lovemaking as often as he does with the band’s sound. Now, Cas needs a new sexual experience to inspire his music.Dean Winchester is a Mixed Martial Artist with a reputation for being able to take a hard hit and being able to deliver an even harder one. Having a fight in Vegas is surreal for the Kansas native. Being propositioned by a rock star after the fight is equally surreal. First of all, Castiel is decidedly male with a reputation with the ladies as sordid as Dean’s own. Second, his proposition to be at Dean’s mercy in the bedroom is as ridiculous as it is intriguing.

PC Pagan Spirit: Dean Winchester

Dean Winchester was born on January 24, 1979 to John and Mary Winchester in Lawrence, Kansas. He was their first child, four years older than his brother, Sam. He is named after his maternal grandmother, Deanna Campbell. On November 2, 1983, Mary was killed in Sam’s nursery by the demon Azazel, and in the ensuing fire Dean was tasked with carrying Sam out to safety while John unsuccessfully tried to rescue Mary. Since then, Dean has felt responsible for Sam and was always given the job to take care of him while they were growing up.

John began investigating the cause of Mary’s death and in that course learned about the supernatural and the people who hunted them. John became a hunter himself, and trained Dean to be one as well, though both hid the supernatural from Sam until he was 8 years old. The Winchesters constantly moved around the country, living in motels and the homes of John’s hunter friends. Dean had a large hand in raising Sam due to John’s constantly being away to hunt. When Dean was 16, he was arrested for stealing and spent time in a boy’s home where he had the opportunity to go to a regular school, though eventually Dean chose to return to John and Sam.

The series begins when Dean is twenty-six years old, and now, nine years later, we see a man who has aged decades, mentally at least. Dean took it on to protect his brother with his life, and he has died numerous times for that cause. He sold his soul to a crossroads demon at the end of Season 2, to bring Sam back from death. Dean was given a year to live, at the end of which he was killed by hellhounds. 

Dean was dead for four months, but the time he spent in hell was more around forty years. When he does finally open up about his time there, he confesses that for twenty years he was tortured every day, mercilessly. But after twenty years, he was given a chance to escape torture by torturing others. He does it. Dean carries the weight of his actions with him, and it’s around this time we notice a sharp increase in his drinking.

Dean is pulled (or raised) from perdition by the angel Castiel, and tasked with stopping Lilith from breaking the 66 seals and freeing Lucifer. This eventually leads to Lucifer being freed and the brothers being informed they are the intended vessels for Lucifer and Michael because the Winchesters are the descendants of Cain and Abel. Sam does eventually accept Lucifer into himself, and carries Lucifer into the cage along with Michael and his vessel.

Through the next three years, Dean had a year long relationship with someone, spent a year in Purgatory, and now he and Sam helped cause all the angels to fall and he allowed an angel to use his brother. That angel betrayed them and now it’s cost lives.

I’m glossing over the more recent seasons in detail because it might be spoilers for someone. But I will say this: Dean has sunken farther and farther into a guilt-ridden depression because of the consequences of his actions. He makes choices that he believes will help his brother and the results are not always great. His love and his guilt war with each other, and he drinks to try and fight that. 

As far as my work with him in a pop culture pagan practice, he is easy enough to deal with once you convince him you mean no harm to him, his brother, Cas, or to most people in general. He is not trusting, even after a time. He still looks at me as if I might at any moment prove him right and curse him. He is of course pleased with the lack of bodily fluids in my witchcraft, and sometimes just befuddled at the whole concept that he’s a character. “I’m real, dammit.” I agree with him, but I tell him, not everyone sees him as such.

Part of me is trying to warn you, he has some deep-seated issues, and I caution you, he won’t always be in a good mood. I’ve had him come to me outside of normal circumstances and he just wanted to sit there, he wanted to talk but couldn’t. He breaks my heart, but through him I can see some of my own family issues and my depression. 


  • he’s protective

  • strong mentally and physically

Hi! Big fan of all your work! And I was wondering if you could rec some fics for me? ( destiel and Sabriel if you have any ) but if you don't want to or you already made one of these and I didn't see it then feel free to ignore this, because you have a life. Did I mention your art is amazing?

Hi anon! First of all, know that I love long fics & AUs. The longer the better, so this list will essentially, have long fics that are AUs. I’ve already rec’d some here but I’ll add on! :> Please heed the tags/warnings before reading the fic in case theres something you’re not comfortable with!

Autumn Hollow by shotgunsinlace

Summary: When tragedy strikes late one Californian night, author C.J. Novak searches for a place to start his life anew. The long road filled with shadows and doubts take him to Nires Island, a small fishing town off the coast of Maine where the food is good and the neighbors are polite. But when nightmares of drowning threaten the fragile threads of Castiel’s sanity, the picturesque shores of Autumn Hollow don’t look quite so pretty any more. The dead walk, the vengeful haunt, the darkness stalks, and Dean Winchester may be more than just the shady mechanic who somehow manages to destroy Castiel’s defenses.

Angel’s Wild by riseofthefallenone
Word count: 389,271
Summary: But that’s the whole reason he’s here, isn’t it? He’s not out here hunting Humans. He’s not even hunting deer, or bears, or anything else that featured in Bambi. He’s out here, freezing his nuts off every night, because he’s hunting Angels.

Sometimes Dean wishes that Angels were like how they’re described in the Bible. How people from time too old for him to care much about thought Angels were messengers and warriors of God, protectors of Humans. He knows that how they’re really described in the Bible is actually pretty terrifying, but at least they were told by God that they’re supposed to love Humans, right?

That’s a thousand times better than what Angels really turned out to be.

Summary“I’m Lucifer. I always have been. I just didn’t know it for like, the last five thousand fucking years, not until you broke the seal and I got my Grace back and realised exactly how much I was screwed over. Okay, so maybe there’s a few assholes I’d really like to explode, but really, I mostly just want to stay under the radar and get my head sorted.”

After the final Seal is broken, Dean discovers that he’s actually Lucifer. He’s not really sure how he feels about that. The forces of Heaven and Hell aren’t exactly making things easier.

A Beginner’s Guide to Communing with the Dead by suspiciousflashlight
Word count: 77,159
Summary: Maybe it’s the little girl whose disappearance turned into a murder, and whose murder turned into a cold case, and who has now apparently decided to move in with him. Maybe it’s the unacceptable hole left in his life when his dumb best friend and partner in (the prevention of) crime decided to go and get himself killed. Maybe it’s his brother, whose high-profile career and fantastic girlfriend and first-child-on-the-way are steadily leaving Dean in the dust. Pick one. Pick all of them. The why doesn’t matter so much as the what, and the what is this: Dean is pretty sure he’s going completely, certifiably insane. Sure, he hasn’t started wearing all his clothes inside out, and he still showers on a regular basis (anyways, that’s not crazy, just a little eccentric); but there’s no getting around the fact that he just threw away his life, his career, and his reputation by dragging out his mom’s old necromancy book and summoning a Class A Forbidden Entity to his attic. A cranky one, too. With horrendous bed-head.

Summary: Dean’s done some pretty stupid things, but getting drunk-hitched in Vegas to a colleague he barely knows might just take the cake. His surprise husband, Castiel, is a little weird but likable despite that, and Dean figures they’ll go back to Boston, get a quiet annulment, and go their separate ways. Six weeks later, he’s still married to one of the strangest, most genuine and definitely most dangerously lov— likable guys he’s ever known. Dean doesn’t know why or really even how it’s happening, but it’s getting harder and harder to remember that he has divorce papers to file.

anonymous asked:

In last night's episode did Dean say John had the impala when he and Mary had their first date cause I thought Dean talked young John into buying it or is it because he went back in time that reality no longer exists? or did I just hear wrong and they were talking about something else

Hi there! I went back to rewatch the scene, because I didn’t think they mentioned the Impala in that recap at the beginning of the episode, but I also saw something else that I wanted to write about relating to the scene, so for my own reference I just transcribed the whole thing. Easier that way. :P

Please pardon my dust, I didn’t put any stage direction or emotional content here, just the words.

Dean’s speech to Mary, beginning after she let him up…

Mom. Listen to me. Your name… your name is Mary Sandra Campbell, okay? You were born December 5, 1954 to Samuel and Deanna Campbell. Your father, he bounced around a lot for… uh… work, and you bounced right along with him, and you ended up in Lawrence, Kansas.

Mary: How do you know all that?

Dean: Dad told me. March 23, 1972, you walked out of a movie theater. Slaughterhouse Five. You loved it. And you bumped into a big marine and you knocked him right on his ass. You were embarrassed and he laughed it off, said you could make it up to him with a cup of coffee. So you went to, uh, Mulroni’s, and you talked, and he was… cute, and he knew the words to every Zeppelin song. So when he asked you for your number, you gave it to him even though you knew your dad would be pissed. That… was the night you met…

Mary: John Winchester.

Dean: August 19, 1975, you were married. In Reno. Your idea. A few years later, I came along. Then Sammy.

Mary: And then I burned. How long have I been gone?

Dean: 33 years.

So, no. There was no mention of the Impala anywhere in that conversation. BUT! I’ve seen several theories floating around about how Dean would’ve known all these facts about Mary because John used to talk about her all the time. But when did we EVER get the impression that John talked about her AT ALL?

I don’t think John ever talked about Mary if he could help it. I don’t think he waxed nostalgic telling and retelling stories about their first date and their romantic history. The way Dean tells this story sounds like the way MARY would tell it.

HE CALLED JOHN “CUTE?” I mean, would John have included that assessment in the retelling of how he met Mary? “she thought I was cute.”

Dean recalls all of this from MARY’S POV. “You loved it” regarding the movie.

And yeah, when Mary asks how Dean knew all this (really just referring to the stuff about her early life before they met, such as her birthday and her parents and the lie about bouncing around because of Samuel’s “work.” Yeah, that stuff he probably heard from John. That’s “name, rank, and serial number” sort of facts. But the rest of it? That sounds like something he heard from Mary.

Back in 3.08 (which oddly I just watched again a few days ago), apparently it was one of John’s unwritten rules, right alongside “Don’t tell Sammy about the monsters or the hunting,” that they also Don’t Talk About Mom.

SAM: Is Dad a spy?
DEAN: Mm-hmm. He’s James Bond.
SAM: Why do we move around so much?
DEAN: ’Cause everywhere we go, they get sick of your face.
SAM: I’m old enough, Dean. You can tell me the truth.
DEAN: You don’t wanna know the truth. Believe me.
SAM: Is that why we never talk about… Mom?
DEAN: (Tosses the magazine away angrily and stands up) Shut up! Don’t you ever talk about Mom. Ever!

I mean, Dean had already reinforced the lie that John’s some sort of salesman traveling on business a few lines before this. And at this point Sam is 8 years old, and seems to know absolutely nothing about his mother. I don’t think JOHN was the one sitting around telling these stories to Dean, trying to keep these happy memories of Mary and sharing them with his sons.

Nope. These were probably things Mary told him when he was little.

Fight me.
