Anonymous asked: soulmate/college/roommate-AU where instead of a
tattoo/name everyone’s born with a pendant/charm necklace that matches their
soulmate’s. Dean walks to their bathroom thinking it’s empty but there’s Cas
taking off his shirt to shower and Dean sees his necklace (that matches his,
obviously) and freaks out (because Dean is totally 100% NOT gay at all). Bonus
if Cas already knows.
Author’s note: Several people requested a Soulmate AU, so here it is. I did alter the rules for the necklaces a little bit, because I couldn’t imagine someone wearing a necklace when coming out of the womb. Omg, that sounded so weird, lol. Anyway, enjoy!
As much as
Dean was trying to not let his sulky mood get to him, he was failing miserably.
He sighed as he got into the elevator, pressing the ‘twelve’ button before
heavily leaning against one of the walls. It wasn’t even the long day of
exhausting lectures that had him this grumpy, not really…
elevator doors slid closed, his mind wandered to the text that his younger
brother Sam had sent him that morning.
‘Hey Dean! Guess what, I already found my soulmate!
Her name is Jess and she’s perfect!’
course. The kid had turned sixteen less than a month ago, and he’d already
found his match.
wistfully thought back to his own sixteenth birthday; he’d been so excited when
waking up that morning, for the first time admiring the silver necklace that had
appeared around his neck while he’d been sleeping. The piece of jewelry that
would lead him to the person he’d possibly spend the rest of his life with.
four years later, Dean was beginning to lose all hope. Sure, not everyone was
as lucky as Sammy, to find the one with the matching necklace within weeks
after receiving it. There were plenty of stories out there about people who
didn’t find their soulmate until they were in their thirties, or even forties.
Regardless, sometimes Dean was tired of waiting, and today was one of those
days. He was happy for his little brother, he honest to God was, yet he
couldn’t help but feel slightly envious.
elevator paused when it reached floor seven, and a little old lady offered Dean
a friendly smile as she got on. Dean nodded at her, faking a smile of his own.
elevator started moving again, Dean absently reached for the necklace that was
hidden behind two layers of clothing. To Dean, it was something private. He’d
only pull it out whenever he found a girl with whom he thought he felt a
possible connection, to see if it matched. It never had.
It was a
personal matter, really. Some proudly wore their necklace for the world to see,
like most of the still single girls that Dean encountered. Others, like Dean’s
best friend Castiel, and their other friend Charlie, didn’t deem it necessary
to wear their heart on their sleeve.
floor. The old lady shuffled to the exit, but not without wishing Dean a good
day. As if. He smiled at her anyway.
again, Dean pulled out the necklace, staring at the pendant almost resentfully;
A flame made of emerald, cradled by wings made of sapphire. It was beautiful,
it truly was, but it also made Dean bitter because every day, it reminded him of
something still missing in his life.
So for National Ectotherm Awareness Week, lets change the term to “cool-blooded” for obvious reasons. Just using the term “ectothermic” would be ideal… but lets be honest… the average Joe doesn’t even know what that means.
