for @impalaimagining 1K Followers Challenge. I chose the song-No Light, No Light-Florence + The Machine with the pairing Cas x Reader. I was also given the gif above, to use in the fic.
Characters: Y/n, Castiel, Sam, Dean
Pairing: Castiel x Y/n (GENDER NEUTRAL READER)
Warnings: Fluff, happy memories, angst, character death, self hate, grief, loneliness, Cas being all sad.
Word Count: 2304
Summary: Cas reminisces on the one person he truly loved. If only he knew it at the time.
A/N: Ok, so this is basically all angst with fluffy flashbacks. But it’s basically a fully sad fic. I incorporated the lyrics in well, in my opinion. And the gif was also used in a certain part, so…I used everything I was give. Woohoo! And, I hope u like it!!
if you write johndave fanfiction or you’ve ever wanted to, and you’re like me and you like musical inspiration, i have some songs for you. :)
can’t help falling in love // twenty one pilots (cover)
the (shipped) gold standard // fall out boy | inspirational lyrics: “i want to scream ‘i love you’ at the top of my lungs, but i’m afraid that someone else will hear me”
umbrella // all time low (cover) | inspirational lyrics: “when the sun shines, we’ll shine together“
miss missing you // fall out boy | note: very good for things about alpha johndave and/or the three year journey
let’s talk about your hair // have mercy | note: very good for sadstuck, especially about the three year journey
collar full // panic! at the disco | note: very good for pure, wholesome fluff
505 // arctic monkeys | inspirational lyrics: “but i crumble completely when you cry,” “i’d probably still adore you with your hands around my neck”
pacify her // melanie martinez | note: very good for fanfics in which one of the chracters is already in a relationship with someone, and the other character steals them and is very cocky (example: johnvris, where dave catches john’s attention and breaks up their relationship)
wasting time // halsey
r u mine? // arctic monkeys
two birds // regina spektor | inspirational lyrics: “i’ll believe it all, i won’t let go of your hand” + note: also good for johndavesprite, but works for either
st. patrick // pvris
holding on to you // twenty one pilots
froot // marina and the diamonds
gone, gone, gone // phillip phillips
mr. brightside // the killers | note: very good for cheating fics!
if my heart was a house // owl city
jenny // studio killers | note: very good for rule 63/fem johndave, but if you bend the lyrics the right way (trust me, i’ve done it before) you can use it for straight up johndave
trade mistakes // panic! at the disco | inspirational lyrics: “you can’t fly these wings, you can’t sleep in this box with me”
boats and birds // gregory and the hawk | inspirational lyrics: “if you be my star, i’ll be your sky”
holy // pvris | inspirational lyrics: “you’re just a ghost at most, a set of empty bones, searching for anything and everything to make you feel whole,” “you’re shallow and empty and filled with regret, i think your chest must be heavy from that cross on your neck, you only wear it ‘cause you’re weary of what comes next, after your death”
paint you wings // all time low
no light, no light // florence + the machine | inspirational lyrics: “no light, no light in your bright blue eyes, i never knew daylight could be so violent”
next year // two door cinema club
changing of the seasons // two door cinema club | note: also works fine for normal johndave
millennia // crown the empire
this certainly isn’t all of the songs i know that work as an inspiration, but this is some, and i hope it helps someone write!
remember, you can always ask me for more songs, and i will be glad to deliver. :)
