Meet You Downstairs

Read on AO3

As Jack descends in the elevator to the basement, it strikes him that he never knew his condo building had a rental suite. Between his hockey commitments and hermit tendencies, there’s still a lot about his own home he doesn’t know despite living here for six years. It’s part of the reason he offered to help out around the building: to keep himself social during the summer season. His parents talked a lot about building a community of friends outside of work, and he knows his way around a toolbox so. Why not?

The basement is… really creepy, actually, reserved for the storage lockers and recycling bins. Even the parking garage is a level up and more inviting than this. There’s only one hallway so Jack follows it, certain he’s going the right way when he hears the voice through the wall.

“It’s fine, Mama. I know you wanted to help me pick out a place but this one is great. It’s in a nice neighbourhood, very secure… Yes, I got your pepper spray in the care package, but please, this is Providence, not New York City.”

Jack doesn’t mean to eavesdrop but he can’t help but notice how young this guy sounds. In a building where the average condo sells for over two million dollars, most of the neighbours he sees in the halls are retirees or working professionals. There aren’t many parties, which he appreciates.

He knocks on the cheap wooden door which rattles in the hinges. No wonder they’re renting this room out instead of selling, he thinks. There’s shuffling on the other side, and Jack hears the boy… man say “Goodness, I think the custodian is here already… of course I have pie who do you think I am? Call you back, love you.”

The door opens and there’s a lingering moment of silence as they each look at the person across from them. This guy looks to be a few years younger than Jack, a bit shorter, lean but with well-defined muscles he can see quite clearly thanks to him wearing the shortest shorts that could possibly be considered not-underwear. He’s staring. Oh boy, he’s staring and he needs to not be doing that so he drags his eyes up and they stall on the loose neckline of his tank top.

Hi guys! So I was talking to my younger sister recently, and I was trying to convince her that fanfic is awesome. She'd read anything I link her to, but I don't know what I SHOULD link her to. She's 13, and I'm trying not to traumatize her. I mean, obviously she watches the show so there's a baseline of what she's been exposed to. Idek what genre to start with. I looked through the teen tag, but content varies. Do you have any recs? Thanks!

There are are a lot of fics that we have recommended for those new to fanfic so be sure to check out our New to Fanfiction Guide and New to Destiel Guide. We also created a post listing fics we would suggest to Misha to show that fanfic is not just porn - though we do enjoy our porn! 

Below are a few fics pulled from our T and M rated tags that we thought would be great to suggest to your 13 yr old sister (Ratings explained here).  Remember, some of the fics we read are written by people not that much older than your sister! We also added a few darker fics that are M rated and a couple NC17 that we thought were thematically appropriate. Be sure to note the ratings and of course use your discretion! Direct link to T rated fic tag.
All links go to our reviews. Latest additions are marked with asterisk [*].

Canon (SU) and Supernatural AUs

High School AUs (There are a lot more HS fics out there, but we don’t read that many and the most of the ones we have read are M or NC17)

Fluff/Rom Com/Adventure (Note the M rated fics in this group!)

Darker Themes including Suicide, Homophobia and Bullying

NC-17 (limited scenes within a broader narrative)

Oh Screw It - You know she is going to find the really porny stuff eventually, if you are so inclined, start her off with the good stuff: A Distant Mirror!

DESTIEL EMERGENCY SERVICES HAVE ARRIVED. REMAIN CALM.

EMERGENCY HAPPINESS FICS:

  • Sex is Weird by artsyUnderstudy | 1,826 | He thinks maybe he’s been falling for a long time, now.
  • Professional Couple Only by saltyfeathers | 37,153 | There’s a haunted apartment building in Vermont, and the ad says “Professional couple only”. Dean and Cas rise to the occasion.
  • The One Thing You Can’t Lose by MajorEnglishEsquire | 4,955 |  You know what I like a lot? The thought that Dean can just tug Cas anywhere at any time and Cas, who can lift tons without effort, who can demolish things with the light of his grace, who has battled and gone to war, has defended and broken, will just let Dean do it.
  • The (Mostly Accidental) Courtship of Dean Winchester by tuesday | 11,171 | Angelic marriage rites were never intended to go quite like this.
  • Thank You For Noticing by suspiciousflashlight | 3,004 | They “make it official” on a Friday at Cas’s house, with Dean stammering and blushing his way through the stereotypical I-really-like-you-in-a-different-than-friends-way speech and Cas listening, terrifyingly impassive, right to the end, at which point he grabs Dean by the shoulders and kisses him.
  • The Breath Of All Things by KismetJeska | 65,404 | Dean Winchester was twenty-six years old when a car accident killed his father and left him paralysed from the waist down. A year and a half later, Dean is in a wheelchair and lives in a care home in Kansas, where he spends his days waiting to die. It’s only when Castiel Novak starts volunteering at the care home that Dean starts to wonder if a changed life always equals a ruined one. (This sounds depressing, but it’s a beautiful story of healing and recovery and love.)
  • Shut Up (Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is) by kototyph | 23,878 | Dean’s done some pretty stupid things, but getting drunk-hitched in Vegas to a colleague he barely knows might just take the cake.
  • Convenient Husbands by Annie D (scaramouche) | 39,283 | “It’s only temporary, right?” Dean says. “Just until you’re healed up, and then we’ll never have to see each other again. So what do you say, Castiel, do you want to marry me or not?” (Marriage of convenience and grumpy telepathy!!)
  • Minty Fresh Kisses by almaasi | 7,905 | Dean teaches a newly-human Castiel how to brush his teeth properly. Things don’t go according to plan – but for once, the unexpected development actually presents a more promising outcome.
  • Softly Spoken, Softly Received by TamrynEradani | 3,357 | Cas tells Dean he can’t speak so that when Cas tells him he’s beautiful, Dean won’t argue with him. Also, touching and sex. But mostly feelings.
  • Creature of Habit by trinityofone | 5,197 | The more you love someone, the more you want to kill them. Or: How Cas developed some bad habits, and Dean coped surprisingly well.
  • How to Romance a Human by CloudyJenn | 4,433 | Castiel consults Cosmopolitan magazine in order to win Dean’s heart.
  • lights, camera, action by donutsandcoffee | 3,560 | If Dean’s life were a movie, it would be one of those cheap, bait-and-switch movies. The ones that look like they are of this one genre, but when you get around to watch it, it turns out to be something completely different. Dean’s life right now would totally look like a romantic comedy.
  • PWP: Pie Without Plot by MajorEnglishEsquire, orange_crushed | 82,517 | Team Free Will opens a bakery. There’s pie and kisses.
  • Failure (to Cuddle) is Not an Option by Annie D (scaramouche) | 3,766 | All Castiel wants for Christmas is to cuddle, is that really too much to ask? 
  • The face of heaven. by orange_crushed | 9,772 | Castiel is a fallen star.
  • Someone New by whelvenwings | 2,942 | When they’re left stranded in the middle of nowhere together, Dean and Cas talk about stars, and birthdays, and becoming someone new. 
  • hummed low by mishcollin | 3,250 | Dean pulls the Impala over at a cider barn about thirty miles out; doesn’t really think about it, just sees the hokey orange lettering off the roadside and lets his hands guide the Impala off the interstate with gravel spitting under the wheels. 
  • As You Wish by alullabytoleaveby | 1,682 | Dean’s not good with words, never has been, not like Cas. He has no idea how to dress this up, soften the blow, so he comes right out and says it: “I accidentally adopted five kittens.”

Should’ve Just Asked

A 2016 Dean/Cas Big Bang Fic

Despite their age gap and differing social circles, Castiel has struck up a warm friendship with Mary Winchester, a wealthy widowed socialite. When Castiel needs a place to stay, Mary invites him into her house, where there’s loads of spare room. Castiel’s aware that they make an odd pair, but he doesn’t fully realize how things look to outsiders, especially to Mary’s eldest son. All Dean Winchester sees is that his mom has apparently hooked up with a hot young guy (who is totally Dean’s type) and that makes things… weird.

READ IT HERE!

– guys I am just giddy about this year’s DCBB … since I had the sheer, dumb, random luck to illustrate a story written by the AMAZING Annie D (scaramouche), aka no-gorms on tumblr. I’m sure you’ve read her stories – including Not Part of the Plan, Convenient Husbands, and my fave, What Has Eight Tentacles and Isn’t Allowed to Eat Pie. This new romantic comedy-of-errors fic is awesome, and her Dean and Cas characterizations are just perfect. (And Mary Winchester is so great too!) While I spent most of this DCBB season internally screaming I am not worthy, it’s been so cool to have a chance to create art to match her vision. I know you guys are going to love reading it!

anonymous asked:

Hello, do you have any fluffy fanfic recommendations? Thank you!

Sure no prob! I might not be the perfect person to answer but I’ll do my best! :)  (but you might need an A03 account for some) As I don’t have more precisions I’ll guess you want some destiel! 


From A03

Healing Hands by Angeladarling endverseCas and touch!starved Dean

Squeeze me by Cadignan   endverseCas and touch!starved Dean

How (thanks to Gabriel) Dean and Castiel (accidentally) raised each other (and Sam) by Vera This one is longer but very cute at the beginning with Castiel “raising” the two winchesters kid. I read it a long time ago but I have fluffy and sweet memories of it.

What Has Eight Tentacles and Isn’t Allowed to Eat Pie?  by Anna D I don’t really know if this one can be considered fluff since it’s pretty much crack too. But i made cooing noises reading this fic soooo

Perchance to Dream by Unforth

These hands weave Mercy by Dangerousnotbroken 

The twelve days of cheesemas by Elizabeth1985


From my SB thebunkerofletter AND tumblr in general

X  X  X  GentleDomCas on the top of my head, there are certainly more but I’m not the only mod and haven’t read every fic rec.

I can also rec you these blog which write/reblog lot of drabble/fics with a good tagging system!

@destieldrabblesdaily with the fluff tag

@jimminovak with another fluff tag

I’d like to say I didn’t read these people’s fics but I see them around a lot with always such wonderful comments so I guess they must be very good fics! :) And to you Destieldrabblesdaily and Jimminovak I hope you won’t mind the tag!

I know that @sprinkleofhappinessuniverse as well as @destielonfire​ and write stuff and I think I’m not too adventurous saying they have some fluff too :)


I hope it has been useful to you and you’ll find something to your liking ! If you’re one of my follower stay tuned because I’ll be, in the next weeks, publishing a destiel drabble collections with a lot of fluff! :D

Take care!

mendokayalways  asked:

Please I need some fluffy fics or even some angsty-mourny ones to get over what happened last night. Please if you can find two or three one-shot type fics. Please reply to this message. Because if I can't revel in some fluff, I'd want to be able to mourn properly with Dean. Please help!

OKAY!

Here’s a few:

Florence verse - great domestic fluff!

Kiss the Baker - so cute and sexy and sweet in every way.

…and Piggy! Esther the Wonder pig AU!

What has 8 tentacles and isn’t allowed to eat pie? Actual Octopus!Dean

Easy Now, With my heart - Just one of my all time faves.

and here are some of my own very fluffiest:

Little Pink Houses - Naked Protester Cas versus Deputy Dean. Smut ensues.

Some Day Soon - Christmas fluff

And some Porn with feelings and humor and ABO - Best Laid Plans.

Cas invites Dean to see a movie. It’s been ages since Dean has sat in a theater, eating popcorn and smiling at the explosions of an action movie, and he has nothing to do today. So he says yes, and they spend the afternoon relaxing like normal humans, though neither of them are.

Cas invites Dean to go to dinner. Dean’s hungry, and he’s sure that’s why Cas asked. He says sure, and Cas zaps them to a restaurant much nicer than the usual diner. He smiles like he’s done something good, and Dean smiles back, his stomach rumbling and mouth watering at the smell. So he eats the most delicious steak he’s ever had as Cas only watches, and he drinks scotch, laughing as Cas tells him stories of his past.

Cas invites Dean to the bunker’s kitchen, where he has made a pie for Dean’s birthday. Cas looks so proud, and it’s such a nice gesture, that Dean ignores the slightly off taste of it and proclaims it the best pie ever. Cas beams at him. So he eats another slice, allowing himself to feel special and celebrated for just a few minutes.

Cas invites Dean to a Netflix marathon, to a LARPing battle Dean finds more awesome than he intended, to the best fishing spot Dean has ever seen. Dean has fun with Cas, finds it easy and comfortable to be with him. Sometimes it feels a little intense, but Cas is an angel, and their relationship has never been exactly normal. Dean figures it comes with the territory. So he always goes along, even when Cas suggests bowling, and he always enjoys himself.

Finally, Cas invites him to a nice restaurant on Valentine’s Day. Dean just can’t say yes this time, especially with Sam standing right there, eyes wide as he waits for Dean’s response. “Uh, Cas? That’s a little too much like a date, don’t you think?”

Cas only narrows his eyes and tilts his head in that infuriating way he has. “But Dean, we’ve been dating for months.”

Dean’s heart jumps at Cas’ words as they sink in, and Dean realizes it’s not an entirely unpleasant feeling. Cas has just given a name to something Dean’s been aware of and actively ignoring for a while now, and he can’t shove it down this time. Not with Cas looking at him with those blue eyes, all hopeful and sweet.

“Yeah, Cas,” he sighs, rubbing at the back of his neck and looking at the floor, “I guess we have.”

“Then let’s go.” Cas holds out his hand.

Dean doesn’t look at Sam as he laces his fingers through the angel’s, but he hears him snorting with laughter as Cas pulls him toward the garage where the Impala waits for them.

“Have a good time!” Sam calls after them.

Dean knows he will.

Destiel fic/podfic recs for warm fuzzies, feels, and/or giggles.

So often, great fics that aren’t the level of infamously famous like “Twist and Shout” (which I will never read.) Get over looked. There are short ones, long ones, but they don’t get recced as much, don’t have a huge following, and unlike T&S, don’t leave you a devastated crying mess, either.

A lot of people over look podfics as well. Don’t. Podfics are a persons highest form of reccing a fic, and even if you gave it a try and got a podfic that was rather poorly done, still don’t give up. Not all are created equal and are all still products of love and time.

So. Being that the S9 finale is coming up, let me rec you some of my personal favorite fics- and their subsequent podfics, with a little about why you really just need to trust me and listen to the thing already. If you are familiar with my work, you will recognize a common element to all of them: I podficced them. Like I said, HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION a fan can give. I loved it SO MUCH I wanted to read it to you.

All of these have a happy ending or I wouldn’t recommend them.

  • “The Makings For Home (It’s Wherever You Are)”- Post S9 fic. Adjusting to civilian life isn’t easy for Dean or Cas and they have to find a way to redirect their focus. Cue learning to cook in the bunker’s kitchen. And feels. OMG the feels. The war is over, but Dean and Cas both have their scars to contend with. Schmoop. Domestic. Angst. Feels.
  • “Prompt: I need you”- Super short prediction of how Cas will have to be the one to bring Dean back to himself when the First Blade takes over. But is “I need you” going to be enough?
  • “Defy Any And All Expectation”- This one is novel length with an epic storyline. So epic there is this post that does it better justice than the summary ever will. There is also lots of fanart. Also, it’s not mentioned, but inconveniencing a deity may lead to temporary girl-status, which has no impact on the romance, and has everyone including the Winchesters wiping their brows going “Whoo. Messed with a god. That could have ended so much worse”. The romance happens much later in the story, after back to male-status. **It’s sad and depressing I have to make this explanation and warning. It’s called a ‘plot twist’. These are good, especially when not used as a plot device.
  • “La Cucina”- English language, don’t let title deceive you. Another cooking fic. Cooking, care taking, fluff. Cas is human, and Dean wants to introduce him to all the wonders of food and flavor one recipe at a time.
  • “Good Girl”- In which Team Free Will gets a four-legged mascot, Dean is not happy about it, and the entire fic is beautiful and happy.
  • “Frowning your way through love”- *note there are apparently 2 podfics of this? IDK. This links back to mine. This fic is ridiculously cute and funny. I giggled all the way through it. Dean has a MASSIVE CRUSH THAT CAN BE SEEN FROM SPACE on his brother’s roommate and best friend. Problem is: all the guy does is frown at Dean. This is SUCH A CUTE FIC. You will def smile a lot.
  • “300 Things”- College AU. There is so much CUTE AND FLUFF AND DOMESTIC DESTIEL IN THIS FIC. It is so ridiculous all the feels, I cannot even. This is just… yes, good, this. Also, 14-yr old Sam that is adorable and sweet and just argh!
  • Tumblr Prompt Collection”- Collections are broken down by chapter, so there are actually two downloads for this, so don’t miss them. The first part is happier than the second, and is filled with more fluff and friendship pieces. The second part has more feels and angst, but still all happy endings, all are written based of fic prompts.
  • What Has Eight Tentacles And Isn’t Allowed To Eat Pie?”- Curse fic filled with friendship and found family feels like WHOA. Super, super cute and comforting. I love when Dean pranks Kevin and makes hims scream like a scared 6-yr old girl. The fanart for it is all really cute as well and by pappcave here on tumblr.
  • “The 4th Wall Series”- set during S5. Team Free Will ends up reading lots and lots of fanfiction about themselves and it’s all Sam’s fault. No, it’s Chuck’s fault. But then it’s Sam’s, and then Dean and Cas get dragged in, eventually Lucifer, and all of them are baffled what led them to that point in their lives. An actual plot emerges slowly.
  • How Many Slams In An Old Screen Door”- Asexual theater major Cas is really BAD at first time introductions. Lucky for him, Dean’s already smitten anyway, and the most chaotic production of Les Miserables in history somehow manages to go off without a hitch.
  • Convenient Husbands”- Creature!Cas and lots of banter and telepathy. It’s not as “happy” as the other fics, so I almost didn’t include it in this list, but all the banter and sarcasm in the marriage of convenience are so much fun.
  • Carpooling”- You know what happens when you put Cas and Crowley in the backseat of the Impala on a mission with the Winchesters? The worst car ride in the history of ever. Sam hates his life so much sometimes.
  • Take the Lead”- Dean, Cas, and tango. Mmreow. Music included. There’s something both just fundamentally FUN about ballroom dance, with an added bonus of sexy when it involves your OTP. Cas is a dance instructor who gets one of his student’s help to demonstrate a point. Dance floor flirting and dancing ensues.
  • Home Isn’t A Place”- more of a hurt/comfort, found family fic with warm fuzzies. It was written after the S8 finale. With a newly fallen Cas, Dean does what he always does when something goes wrong: he tries to make it better. He has some help.
  • Important Angel Business”- There are at least 5 podfics of this one story. This is my version. This is actually labeled Sabriel, but it’s mostly friendship, with lots of banter and texting, as Gabriel never makes an actual appearance in the fic. This story cracked me up. I do so love Sam.
  • “Thinking of You”- Takes place during S8. Cas may not answer Dean’s prayers, but that doesn’t stop him. Dean tries to think something reassuring in Cas’ direction at least once a day, sometimes telling him funny stories about things that happen on their cases- generally at Sam’s expense, in the hopes to amuse the angel clearly going through a really rough time.

CAN I GIVE YOU AUS

  • Not Part of the Plan series by Annie D (scaramouche) | 213,108 WIP |   Dean/Castiel urban fantasy AU where Castiel and Dean are from neighbouring countries (Castiel from a kingdom, Dean from a republic), and romance happens. 
  • The Breath Of All Things by KismetJeska | 65,404 | Dean Winchester was twenty-six years old when a car accident killed his father and left him paralysed from the waist down. A year and a half later, Dean is in a wheelchair and lives in a care home in Kansas, where he spends his days waiting to die. It’s only when Castiel Novak starts volunteering at the care home that Dean starts to wonder if a changed life always equals a ruined one. 
  • Ad Astra by nhixxie | 17,390 | “Stars died for you, Dean Winchester.” 
  • Out of the Deep by riseofthefallenone | 488,608 | ‘Stay away from the light-beds. Stay in the deep.’ It is the first thing hatchlings are taught the moment their fans unfurl and they can swim without their parents to buoy them along. It is the first rule, the first law. It is the beginning of every boogey-monster bedtime story told when they settle against the cliffs to sleep. Castiel should have listened better.
  • A Beginner’s Guide to Communing with the Dead by suspiciousflashlight | 77,159 | 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. (minor smut at the end, if you don’t mind skimming that I still really reccommed this one) 
  • Shut Up (Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is) by kototyph | 23,878 | Dean’s done some pretty stupid things, but getting drunk-hitched in Vegas to a colleague he barely knows might just take the cake.
  • The face of heaven. by orange_crushed | 9,772 | Castiel is a fallen star. 
  • Angel’s Wild by LimonadeGaby, riseofthefallenone | 389,271 |   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.
  • Carry On by TamrynEradani | 148,087 | When Sam gets into Stanford, Dean needs a bigger paycheck than Bobby’s garage can give him. Luckily, he knows a guy. (Dom!Cas, sub!Dean, BDSM, paid relationship that becomes romance.)  (Link to epub file.)
  • Convenient Husbands by Annie D (scaramouche) | 39,283 | “It’s only temporary, right?” Dean says. “Just until you’re healed up, and then we’ll never have to see each other again. So what do you say, Castiel, do you want to marry me or not?” (Creature!Castiel, telepathy, marriage of convenience, wing!kink.) 
  • The Sawdust Men by linoresearch | 123,363 | Castiel Novak is an inmate at a labour camp. Life is brutal and no one ever gets out. Castiel’s only goal is to go unnoticed by the barbaric guards, and the violent inmates. Dean Winchester is a soldier without a purpose since the civil war ended. Dean accepts an assignment at a labour-camp, under the mentorship of Alistair, the Commander. From the start, Dean and Castiel are drawn to each other, and their relationship develops in a way that changes their lives. (Trigger warnings for some pretty grim and violent stuff, but this is so incredibly well-written, I absolutely love it.) 
  • C-S-T-L by komodobits | 90,377 | It’s been nineteen years since the beginning of the Last War, and the Alliance Army is losing land faster than it can supply good men to defend it. Their hope is the synthesis of Android Angeles, a series of humanoid machines designed without the capacity to feel, and thus enabling them to be the perfect super soldiers. In order to check their battle suitability, the first prototypes are sent down with a landing party of the men they will later replace, and Sergeant Dean Winchester is paired with Unit 5284-C-S-T-L for the assignment. (This fic will destroy you and then rebuild you anew.) 
  • A Hole in the World by AnnelieseMichel | 293,288 | Dean Winchester never wanted to go home again. Going back to Lawrence meant people who knew what he was, who didn’t buy into the lie. But with a tragic accident, he’s back and dealing with the death of his father, the social stigma and objectification of being an out Omega, and the lingering aftermath of a long-ago crime. (Many trigger warnings for rape and abuse, but this is one of the best explorations of character and relationship I’ve ever read.) 
  • Clean Air by anactoria | 121,677 | Centuries after the surface of the earth was devastated by an unknown disaster, the remnants of humanity live in a series of vast underground silos, each unaware of the existence of the others. For the inhabitants of Silo 34, the silo is the world, and the only world they know. Questions about the outside world are forbidden, and asking them is what got Dean Winchester’s parents killed. He isn’t even sure himself that they weren’t crazy. That all changes when he hears a voice on the radio – a voice from another world.
  • Don’t Panic by deans1911 | 8,991 | Dean is a Secret Service agent. Cas is his ex-KGB handler. (Link to PDF file.)

And some bonus canonverse that are pretty great:

  • What Has Eight Tentacles and Isn’t Allowed to Eat Pie? by Annie D (scaramouche) | 16,188 | Dean gets turned into an octopus. It’s really great. 
  • My Eyes Are An Ocean by entanglednow | 10,275 | It’s amazing what you decide you can get away with when you can’t see a damn thing. (Sequel.)
  • Our Bodies, Possessed By Light by Obstinatrix | 39,881 | When Castiel becomes too powerful for Jimmy Novak’s body, the only vessel that can hold him is Sam. 
  • The Girlfriend Experience by rageprufrock | 15,393 | While it’s not like Dean hasn’t had a couple of truly regrettable hit-and-runs in his sexual history, this is probably the saddest fucking thing that has ever happened to him.
  • Last One Out Hits The Lights by entanglednow | 37,680 | Season 5 zombie apocalypse AU.
  • Contrapasso by takadainmate | 59,746 | There’s a town in Wisconsin that doesn’t exist. With no way in without human help, Castiel, seeking out a group of missing angels, asks for Dean’s assistance. He finds Sam with his brother, alive and well and free from Lucifer, with no explanation and no memory of how he got out of Hell. Inside the town that doesn’t exist, there is murder and madness and a creeping cold that leave Dean, Cas and Sam fighting for their lives and for each other. As the town shifts and changes around them, descending into anarchy, the three of them find it increasingly difficult to tell what’s real and what’s not.
  • Professional Couple Only by saltyfeathers | 37,153 | There’s a haunted apartment building in Vermont, and the ad says “Professional couple only”. Dean and Cas rise to the occasion.
  • a turn of the earth by mishcollin | 95,273 | Dean’s your typical half-orphaned, monster-killing 22-year-old until a trenchcoated stranger crashes into his back windshield one September night, claiming he’s an angel that knows him from the future and that he’s on the run. Frigging fantastic. (Or, in which Castiel gets stuck in Dean’s timeline preseries and Dean kind of hates it—until he doesn’t.)

There you go, those are my best fic recs.

Thank you so much for finding all the best slow burn good destiel fics! Do you know any good fluffy domestic bunker destiel fics? They are my favorite 😘

I love domestic bunker fics! :D

These Violent Delights (http://archiveofourown.org/works/943436) [M, 56,886]

A newly mortal Castiel wants to understand humanity, and a little Shakespeare is just the thing to help him. Of course, it takes a little bit of prodding, but soon the Winchesters (along with Kevin and Charlie) are all part of the world’s weirdest reading club. Of course, the poetry starts having an effect on everyone…

*I forgot to add this to the ‘slow build fluffy’ recs list earlier*

The Littlest Winchester (http://archiveofourown.org/works/2173437) [PG-13, 16,667] *mpreg*

Dean realized they weren’t going to be able to hide it much longer when Castiel stretched for a box of convent artifacts and a subtle swelling poked out of his shirt. That was also the day it became all too real. Angels bred. They had no gender, of course. They evolved into reproducing among themselves and with humans, they thought, because God abandoned them so long ago that the species would have died out in wars if it didn’t begin to breed. Only the old standard ultraconservative angels still referred to each other as siblings. Most of them grew to realize centuries before that they weren’t, in fact, siblings and many of them paired off into profound bonds. Unexpectedly, Castiel and Dean created a life together. This is their story.

A Room Of One’s Own (http://archiveofourown.org/works/1417834) [NC-17, 94,159]

All Dean wants is a little privacy. Cas doesn’t understand.

A Need for Breathing (http://archiveofourown.org/works/1009129) [NC-17, 27,689]

When Dean and Castiel reunite at the bunker, Cas has a nasty case of pneumonia and Dean takes care of him.

Bottoms Up (http://archiveofourown.org/works/1297681) [PG-13, 28,103]

Sam could’ve kissed them both when he got to the bunker one day to find a string of clothing (his heart nearly burst with hope when he saw the abandoned flannel and trench coat) leading to a very naked pile of limbs tangled on the couch. Just kidding. Of course it wasn’t the couch. Sam always imagined it as the couch because the fact that he actually found them on the dining room table had tainted the happiness of the memory.

Do What Feels Good (http://archiveofourown.org/works/1764839) [NC-17, 12,527]

Castiel learns to love alone time in the shower. And then he learns to share.

What Has Eight Tentacles and Isn’t Allowed to Eat Pie? (http://archiveofourown.org/works/998768) [PG-13, 16,188]

Dean watched an anime porn about this once, but real life turns out to be way less interesting.

Or, the one where Dean gets turned into an octopus.

The Way to a Man’s Heart (http://archiveofourown.org/works/691882) [NR, prob PG-13, 15564]

Dean teaches Cas to cook, and other things as well.

Gratitude (http://archiveofourown.org/works/2445908) [M, 57,032]

 Newly-human Castiel is struggling to cope and adapt to his new life as Thanksgiving approaches. Sam thinks, what better way to help the fallen angel cheer up and embrace humanity than to keep a journal of moments and things that he is grateful for? Gratitude proves difficult though, beneath the weight of heaven’s guilt and the burden of believing that what he wants most can never be his. A month in the life of Team Free Will, told from the eyes of the Winchesters and the words of their fallen angel.

Enjoy!

anonymous asked:

What are some of your top fav deancas fics? Also, what are the deancas fics that you think are most in character, if those are ones that don't make it to the top of your list?

THIS IS SUCH A DIFFICULT QUESTION, GOSH BUT HERE HAVE THESE FIRST BEFORE I TRY TO ANSWER IT: 

AS FOR MY FAVORITES… 

  • Into Your Hideaway (I think that both dean and cas are absolutely in character in this fic but be forewarned that it is a/b/o verse with a lot of triggering stuff and also mpreg)
  • Rock ‘n’ Roll Queer Bar Series (cas is a little more like 2014!cas in this series but less depressing and more “snarky rebellious asshole with blue hair” but I love every part of it with all of my heart)
  • Harmonious Discord (again, I think this is definitely p in character for them and I think that they’re pretty great)
  • The Pillow Verse (this was written last summer by a bunch of talented people on tumblr between s8 and s9 and I loved every moment of it. I think they did a good job keeping it very much in character and they did well exploring the ups and downs of dean and cas’ relationship) 
  • On Air (they’re best friends/roommates and I think p good with the characterization and also cute ;u;) 
  • Sweaters & Cigarettes (TBH I think that there are parts of this fic that delve off into its own version of canon where dean is a little bit too shy and awkward and cas is kind of too much of an asshole but I also appreciate the fact that the writer went to the complete opposite of what the fandom usually does with hs!au’s so I would recommend it if you’re into punk!cas and nerdy!dean but I would have to caution you with the reminder that this is a newer trope in fandom and writers should be given a freebie for certain things)
  • Shut Up Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is (don’t even worry about it being ooc bc it’s not but just read it friend, okay - just read it)
  • What Has Eight Legs and Isn’t Allowed to Eat Pie? (for an octopus dean is definitely in character and also it’s really cute okay I know it sounds weird as fuck but there’s no like tentacle porn if that’s what you’re worried about it’s just silly crack and it’s cute just READ IT)
  • Chili Pepper Verse (def in character) 
  • If I Lose Myself (dean is so in character, at least to me; I don’t remember much about cas in this fic tbh but that means he wasn’t like appallingly ooc or exactly on point)
  • Named (this is a MONSTER of a fic but it is bar-none, including an exercise in worthless, my favorite deancas fic of all time and I loved what the writer did with dean’s storyline)
  • I Always Come When You Call (FLUFF!!!! and some angst. but mostly FLUFF!!! and cas is pretty in character, save for some shyness, but I think this more than makes up for it in the smut)
  • Dean Winchester is a Gay Virgin (OKAY I KNOW WHAT YOU’RE THINKING BUT UM THIS TURNED OUT TO BE REALLY INTERESTING AND I WAS UP UNTIL LIKE 2:30 READING IT LAST WEEKEND BECAUSE I WANTED TO KNOW WHAT HAPPENS NEXT AND DEAN AND CAS ARE PRETTY IN CHARACTER BUT IT’S P ANGSTY AND ALSO LIKE JOHN WINCHESTER ISN’T A TOTAL PIECE OF SHIT??? WHAT??)
  • Sex 101, or: That Time Castiel Asked Dean to Teach Him How to Have Sex
  • Hunting for Faith (hunter!cas and angel!dean that are IN CHARACTER??? WHATTTTTTTTT????) 
  • Smiling Out of Fear (there are not enough words in the english language to describe how much I love cas in this fic)
  • A Couple of Kooks Series (this is gr10 but there is side cas/crowley and cas/meg but dean is great and cas has a personality it’s like *mind blown*)
  • Words With Friends (the last two chapters had me going :/// but the rest of the fic is a++++++ so I’ll give it a 95%)
  • Pick It All Up (dean is so great in this I’m sorry but he is)
  • Smoke in the Mirror 
  • The Breath of All Things 
  • The Mirror (so many deans and somehow all of them are in character)
  • There’s Only One Sure Thing That I Know 
  • and of course, An Exercise in Worthless 

anonymous asked:

I was looking through your bookmarks of the Destiel fics you said you really liked. Could you possibly give your top 3 recommendations out of those? Which ones did you absolutely love?

Hoo boy, do you realize what you’re asking me to do, nonny??? haha there are SO MANY good Destiel fics and honestly every one on that list I would read again (hence why I’ve marked them all as rec’ed). But I understand 120+ fics is a lot to sift through, although I think a good chunk of them are under 10k; I’ve actually put all the shorter fics under this tag. That being said, I don’t think there’s any way I’ll be able to narrow it down to just three, but I’ll categorize them a bit to make it easier.

For the good kind of emotional that builds up slowly inside of you and stays with you long after the story is over:

For the creepy/haunted but so well written you have to keep reading kind of emotional:

There aren’t a whole lot of non-end!verse fics with Cas’ end!verse personality, which is an absolute shame, but this one about Dean being Cas’ roomie is definitely worth noting:

If you don’t mind weird but are in the mood for something super adorable:

If you’re into alpha!Cas/omega!Dean:

  • Get Knocked Down, Get Back Up (warning for mpreg, but I love @unforth-ninawaters to bits for writing it)
  • A Hole in the World (yeah yeah, if you’ve heard of ABO, you’ve probably heard of this fic, but despite being 300k, it sucked me in from beginning to end; it really does deserve the hype it gets. also warning for mpreg in the epilogue but not needed to appreciate the main story.)

And last but not least, as it is part of my namesake, a few ‘40s-ish fics:

I feel like that’s not even an adequate list because there are so many more that I love and I feel like I’m forgetting how much I love some of them because it’s been so long since I’ve read them, but these are the ones sticking at the forefront of my mind. Hopefully there are at least a couple on there that you haven’t seen 5000 other people already recommend. I really feel like I need to read through some of them again and maybe rec more of the lesser-known ones. Or maybe do more rec lists like my ‘40s or preg!Dean rec lists but for other types of fic. Thinking I should start some sort of sci-fi Destiel rec list because I’ve never seen one of those before.

Anywho, hope that steers you in the direction of something new to enjoy!

anonymous asked:

What are good Destiel fics on AO3 that aren't AUs?

This is almost everything I have on my rec lists. (There are a shitton more, but I’m a slow reader and I generally like AUs more.)

  • Ghost Dance by omphalos | 51,194 | In post-apocalyptic isolation, Castiel nurses Dean back to something like his former self, but will a time come when Dean’s recovered –and rediscovered– too much? (A lot of painful angst but a really beautiful story.)
  • What Has Eight Tentacles and Isn’t Allowed to Eat Pie? by Annie D (scaramouche) | 16,188 | Dean gets turned into an octopus. It’s really great. 
  • My Eyes Are An Ocean by entanglednow | 10,275 | It’s amazing what you decide you can get away with when you can’t see a damn thing. (Sequel.)
  • The Mirror by cloudyjenn | 24,568 | When Dean touches a strange mirror, he’s whisked away to one alternate reality after another and it doesn’t take him long to realize the universe is trying to tell him something. 
  • Our Bodies, Possessed By Light by Obstinatrix | 39,881 | When Castiel becomes too powerful for Jimmy Novak’s body, the only vessel that can hold him is Sam. Slight Wincest, but not really.
  • How (thanks to Gabriel) Dean and Castiel (accidentally) raised each other (and Sam). by Vera (Vera_DragonMuse) | 69,693 | In which, Gabriel meddles with the time line and Castiel becomes Dean’s angel rather sooner than intended.
  • PWP: Pie Without Plot by MajorEnglishEsquire, orange_crushed | 82,517 | he is in the kitchen with flour on his hands and an apron and there is flour on his forehead and cas leans across the counter and wipes it off with his thumb and dean says “thank you” and cas says “you’re welcome” very seriously and later dean makes apple turnovers and he only ruins them a little and sam realizes it’s not a real hunt like four days into it and he lets dean stay undercover for like a week and a half or longer maybe way longer because he is such a good everything
  • The Girlfriend Experience by rageprufrock | 15,393 | While it’s not like Dean hasn’t had a couple of truly regrettable hit-and-runs in his sexual history, this is probably the saddest fucking thing that has ever happened to him. 
  • The (Mostly Accidental) Courtship of Dean Winchester by tuesday | 11,171 | Angelic marriage rites were never intended to go quite like this.
  • Last One Out Hits The Lights by entanglednow | 37,680 | Season 5 zombie apocalypse AU. 
  • Smells Like Roses by BoMarlowe | 53,828 | Dean’s life is beautiful. He wants for nothing, has the pleasure of his family and friends, and is desperately, irrevocably in love with his husband. Everything is perfect, just as it should be.Then he wakes up. (So, so much angst, but it ends well.)
  • The Curse of a Hundred Loves by cymbalism |  9,062 |  The one where Dean has to come a hundred times. Cas helps.
  • Named by RC_McLachlan | 94,601 | Jesus Christ is dead. Somehow, that isn’t the worst part of Dean’s week. (As a Christian I have some mixed feelings about this one, but it’s extremely well written.)
  • Love Is Not A Victory March by electricskeptic | 12,584 | It’s a funny thing about intimacy; if Castiel had attempted to hug him rather than Sam, Dean probably would have laughed him all the way back up to Heaven, but sex – sex, he’s familiar with.
  • Both Sides Now by TamrynEradani | 21,609 | Dean solves a hunt and realizes he’s in love. He does most of this while cursed into a female body which means he’s also dealing with being a woman, and it’s more complicated than he had realized. 
  • With Every Light by MajorEnglishEsquire | 24,761 | This new thing coursing through him reminds him that he doesn’t need to watch Cas go. He can go anywhere Cas does. Why not? Why does Cas have to be alone all the time? Why does Dean have to be? 
  • Contrapasso by takadainmate | 59,746 | There’s a town in Wisconsin that doesn’t exist. With no way in without human help, Castiel, seeking out a group of missing angels, asks for Dean’s assistance. He finds Sam with his brother, alive and well and free from Lucifer, with no explanation and no memory of how he got out of Hell. Inside the town that doesn’t exist, there is murder and madness and a creeping cold that leave Dean, Cas and Sam fighting for their lives and for each other. As the town shifts and changes around them, descending into anarchy, the three of them find it increasingly difficult to tell what’s real and what’s not. (This fic gets pretty grim and gruesome and it ends before you want it to, but holy crap is it good.) 
  • Flying in Circles Inside a Jar by prosopopeya | 11,053 | Castiel makes a logical leap that leaves Dean’s head spinning, and the both of them spinning away from each other.
  • In the land of the Emotionally Repressed, Dean Winchester is King. byzoemathemata | 11,316 | Dean does his best to cheer Castiel up when Cas is disheartened by recent events and is left blind.
  • Come Again? by Jacqueline Albright-Beckett (xaandria) | 17,269 | The unintended application of an ancient nuptial blessing leaves Cas and Dean at each others’ mercy, having bestowed upon them the ability to both experience and influence the other’s sexual sensations for the space of ten days. (Like 90% smut for when you’re in that kind of mood.)
  • The Roman Thing by takadainmate | 9,139 | Castiel had died for Dean. He had died for Dean more than once. His future did not look bright.  (This fic is a little abstract and nonsensical, but the prose is beautiful.)
  • Professional Couple Only by saltyfeathers | 37,153 | There’s a haunted apartment building in Vermont, and the ad says “Professional couple only”. Dean and Cas rise to the occasion.  
  • after a storm by museaway | 10,481 | Despite Zeke’s threats, Dean doesn’t tell Cas to leave the bunker.
  • angelus ex machina by aerialiste | 13,357 | Post-10x03 fix-it with angst, emotions, and smut.
  • The Tunnel of Love by xylodemon | 21,421 | “We might,” Cas starts slowly, pausing like he’s choosing his words. “We might have to kiss.” Dean just stares at him.
  • Sharing Hands by almaasi | 6,859 | Dean feels something strange when he touches himself, and realises Cas has been using him as a vessel ever since he came back from Purgatory.
  • Fata morgana. by orange_crushed | 6,629 | The endless asphalt and broken road, the empty land and piles of human garbage, the unwanted ends of life, the cracked toys and broken screens and burning cars and gravel. Dean Winchester is the king of hell.
  • tired starlings by aerialiste | 21,061 | He looked back at Dean, looked into his eyes, the color of the summerfields around Reykjavík, or the lush Ngorongoro caldera. He smiled at him, having absolutely no idea what he was saying. Only his face mattered. And, just like that, Cas was done.
  • The Second Circle by electricskeptic | 5,115 | There’s nothing kinky or glamorous about this; it’s poison, working its way through his system slowly and methodically, and he has maybe fifty minutes left before it kills him.
  • Creature of Habit by trinityofone | 5,197 | The more you love someone, the more you want to kill them. Or: How Cas developed some bad habits, and Dean coped surprisingly well.
  • Where the Sea and City Meet by RC_McLachlan | 2,935 | Castiel risked his life by going back to 1982 to find Dean’s Christmas gift, and all Dean got him was a coat.
  • Like a Thrift Store Jacket, Still Good But Used by triedunture | 5,656 | Dean is a natural bottom, loves to take it up the ass like no one’s business. Problem is, he’s hung like a horse, or at least big enough he pings every guy’s secret size kink. So, Dean ends up topping even though that’s not what he wants. Enter Castiel.
  • Before the Sunrise by tiptoe39 | 3,245 | Dean and Cas need to get warm and dry.
  • Gold by entanglednow | 5,269 | Fairyland was officially closed for business.
  • Someone New by whelvenwings | 2,942 | When they’re left stranded in the middle of nowhere together, Dean and Cas talk about stars, and birthdays, and becoming someone new.  
  • hummed low by mishcollin | 3,250 | Dean pulls the Impala over at a cider barn about thirty miles out; doesn’t really think about it, just sees the hokey orange lettering off the roadside and lets his hands guide the Impala off the interstate with gravel spitting under the wheels.

Like, nice and loving to a point of occasional annoyance. Aight so later her and tfw or whoever get into an argument where she’s still sweet af but her feelings get hurt so she walks out, and later she gets sent to hell (idek man) she comes back as a demon and tfw tries to cure her. Thank you! :)))
