“Do you always understand everything you feel?” Cas asked, one day.

He thought, obscurely, that Spring was the right time for a question like this; or at least this Spring was - a Spring that felt fresh and light and hazy, still dazed by the wonder of Winter’s passing. Dean, sitting in the car beside him, looked washed out by it - or rather, washed clean, Cas supposed he meant. Softened, in any case.

“How d’you mean?” Dean said. He turned to Cas, the bright sun shrinking out the darkness in his eyes - turning them green. Green like go-lights, green like mazes - no, gentler than both of those; green like the water-full leaves of succulent plants. Green like book covers, like peppermint-flavour candies.

“I mean… do you ever feel something that you can’t explain? Something… ineffable?”

Dean pressed his lips together. Cas wondered if he needed to explain the word ‘ineffable’.

“Nah?” he said. “I guess most of what I feel, I know what to call it. I don’t always like it, but at least I know what it is.”

Cas nodded seriously. Dean let the silence rest for a while as they cruised down the Spring-morning road.

“What about you?” he said eventually.

Cas lifted a shoulder.

“I… have a thousand words for how things feel,” he said, “and a thousand things to feel within me. But I… I cannot make them match.”

bokuakatrash  asked:

Kuroken! For the thingy

  • Their ringtones for each other: For Kuroo it’s really cheesey and sappy kittens mewing the tune to his favorite song and it’s really embarrassing but it makes Kenma almost-smile so Kuroo thinks it’s worth it. For Kenma it’s the theme song for his favorite video game so that he’ll actually answer. 
  • Their FB relationship status: in a relationship, after months and months of Kuroo pestering for Kenma to change it. 
  • Whether they are addicted to couples selfies:  Not really. Sometimes when bokuto and akaashi post a really cute selfie Kuroo will whine until Kenma relents and then Kuroo will repost it about six times with different filters because he’s so damn proud of his boyf 
  • Which of their friends is over-joyed shipper trash that they are together: BoKUTO he handknitted them couples sweaters and got the couples bracelets and cried. ((lowkey Akaashi was also 200% on board))
  • Who overshares intimate relationship details: Kuroo calls Bokuto in the middle of the night like “Did you know that Kenma uses two kinds of shampoo because can’t choose between the two of them?? He smells like strawberry banana smoothies I think I’m in love.” 
  • Who steals the other’s clothes: KENMA ALL THE WAY. The boyfriend shirt is big enough that kenma won’t even put shorts on underneath and Kuroo gets frequent nosebleeds
  • Who’s the PDA fan: Surprisingly Kenma’s the cuddler, he’s always leaning on Kuroo’s shoulder, or holding onto the edge of his jacket, or sitting on his lap. 
  • Who proposes: Kuroo!! It’s a really simple quiet thing, in a park under the stars and Kenma couldn’t stop smiling.
