Hi! We’ve done quite a few HS recs already, so it might be hard for us to find you something new to read… but we will try! HERE is our previous High school related recs. Just scroll through the recs and I’m sure you’ll find a lot of fics that fit to what you are looking for! And here’s a few new one’s that we haven’t recced before. – Admin A

Admin’s assessment: ★ ★ ★ ★

Admin A’s notes: This was pretty good for a HS fic. No super ridiculous drama being thrown on your face from every direction. Decent plotline with not too many twists and turns to lose track. So for someone like me who hates HS fics in general, this was a pretty good read and I actually even enjoyed it ^^

Summary: Another day, another town; when their bounty hunter father enrolls he and Sam in yet another school Dean thinks this will just be another town he’ll forget five minutes after he leaves it. Things get more interesting when Sam befriends a classmate of Dean’s and the lonely boy with the strange name and stranger family slowly gets under Dean’s skin. Their new friendship gets complicated when it becomes clear that Castiel’s brothers aren’t just strange, they’re dangerous, and the secrets they keep and the sins they bury have a lot to do with Dean. It would all be bad enough even without Dean starting to worry that maybe friendship isn’t all he wants.

Admin A’s notes: I was torn between giving this two stars or three. On one hand I did like it a lot because again, this exceeded my low expectations for being a HS fic. But then there were parts where I had hoped that the author would have given me more… you know lower lows to get to higher highs. There was drama sure, which is given with Cas and Sam being together in the beginning, but I wish the drama would have been dealt with more vivid descriptions of each of the characters feelings. Lol, maybe I’m being too harsh and asking for way more than I should. I just hate seeing great potential being wasted. Still, it was a pretty good read and if you like HS fics, you should definitely give this a go!

Summary: When Sam brings his new boyfriend, Castiel, home to meet Dean, Dean is expecting the usual: to hate Castiel and to have to give him the “older brother” speech. What he discovers when he meets Cas is a hell of a lot different. Meanwhile, Sam struggles with maintaining a passing grade in chemistry, a relationship with his closest friend, and his confusing feelings regarding Cas’ older brother, Gabriel.

Rating: Mature

Admin’s assessment: ★ ★

Admin A’s notes: This was a little more on the juvenile side for me, but I can tell that everyone who likes HS fics will probably like this. It’s not the best one out there but it’s not terrible either. Also the fact that I didn’t completely hate it probably means that others might love it!

Summary: It’s high school and Dean Winchester is the most popular boy on campus. Everyone loves him, he is brilliant, winning every dodge ball championship ever, even has the best girl in school, Lisa Braeden. Castiel is a nerd, all teachers love him, only has two friends and never got in trouble in his whole life. However, all of this is about to change as the boys are put in detention…

Title: Resignation

Admin’s assessment: ★ ★ ★

Admin A’s notes: Catholic school will forever remind me of Almodóvar’s La mala educación. If you have not seen that movie, you should! Anyway, this was a pretty good story all in all. It’s been awhile since I read this so I have to rely on the notes I’ve written, which pretty much reads: “Catholic school + forbidden relationship is awesome. Doesn’t suck!” lol so yeah, those seem to be my thoughts on this story.
Note to self: write better notes in the future!

Summary: When John sends his sons to an all-boys Catholic school, Dean thinks his life is basically over. It’s his senior year, and Dean’s never wanted anything for himself, resigned to a life following his workaholic father’s footsteps. And then Dean meets Castiel, his perplexing new roommate who’s dealing with some heavy resignation of his own. They pirate movies, punch people, and set each other free.

Title: Perfect to Me

Rating: Mature

Admin’s assessment: ★ ★ ★

Admin A’s notes: This needs a beta, I’m not a grammar nazi like admin J, but this needs a beta. It’s not all that bad really, it just needs to be tweaked a little. Again, this was on the juvenile side for me (like 90% of HS fics are), but there was a solid plot throughout the fic. So that’s a plus.

Summary: Human Dean/Cas AU. Castiel Novak and Dean Winchester were friends once, when high school rolled around and social status took hold, they drifted apart. Could an unfortunate event bring them together again?

Admin’s assessment: ★ ★

Admin A’s notes: This did not work for me. The pacing was off, characters and their relationships seemed shallow and very one dimensional, plot was nothing special… Just a basic HS fic with nothing really worth mentioning. And why am I reccing this? Well, you all know my feelings towards these fics, so when I say I don’t like something… it probably means that it’s at least okayish to the majority of readers! Plus this is only 20k of words so it’s not a terrible waste of time even if you wouldn’t like it^^

Summary: Cas was pretty sure he hadn’t done anything to warrant Dean’s rage - he hadn’t scratched the paint on his motorcycle or teased his brother or done any of the millions of things that Dean Winchester got pissed about - but this was the school rebel, the troublemaker, the attitude problem with legs, and he was walking up to Cas. So yeah, Cas was freaking.

Title: In This Secluded Spot I Respond As I Wouldn’t Dare Elsewhere

Admin’s assessment: ★ ★ ★ ★

Admin A’s notes: I loved this! Actually fucking loved it! And if you know me, that’s a lot for me to say about a HS fic! I should not be so harsh and condemn the whole genre just because a few (too many) bad apples. I apologize to all of you who have been offended by my previous words about HS fics… even though they are mostly true :’D

Summary: It’s 1995, and Castiel’s high school years are destined to be difficult: home-schooled until eighth grade, he is awkward, shy, and socially inept. The weird kid with the funny name would rather isolate himself and draw in his sketchbook than deal with the constant bullying he faces every day. Things only get worse in his junior year when he excels in home economics class, leading the captain of the baseball team, Alastair, to start taunting him for being gay.

Then new student Dean Winchester arrives at Flour Bluff High School, sharing many of Castiel’s classes. Castiel has seen his type before – handsome, athletic, arrogant, and sure to be the most popular kid in school. But Castiel eventually learns that he and Dean have more in common than he thought, and they form an unlikely friendship.

Admin A’s notes: Despite the bad grammar, this fic was pretty good. I hope that this fic has since been betaed because it’s been over a year/years since I read this!

Summary: Dean Winchester is new to the senior year, and he’s kind of your stereotypical bad boy. Castiel Novak does not want to sleep with him. He doesn’t.
