My Name Is Trouble by Chash Summary: Six years after Supernatural ends, Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki find themselves in completely separate lives after a falling out. It’s possible neither of them has ever really recovered from the other. But an unexpected turn in Jensen’s life brings them back together to sort themselves out again.
Mismanaged by Macbyrne Summary: Jared has a secret that he hides from everyone. The only family he has left, his manager has been manipulating him, forcing him to audition the old-fashioned way: on his knees. When he meets Jensen, he knows his secret is in jeopardy. When Jensen finds out, will he listen or will he break Jared’s heart?
Living Just to Breathe by Lostt1 Summary: Jared just wants to live his life a little, under his own terms. But as the only child of the US President, that can be a little difficult. Jared sees his European adventure as a chance to let loose, to finally find some room to breathe. And when he meets Jensen on the plane to Paris, he can’t help but wonder if freedom, and maybe even a chance at love, is finally within his grasp.
Intimate Enemy by Slashboyz Summary: I could not resist exploring this theme. Fan worship can become obsession and sometimes obsession creates a monster. A monster that is closer than you think and knows everything about you. Such a possessive monster is attracted to Jensen, and targets his closest friends and anyone who dares to love the object of its twisted desire. (Brief Jensen/Jeff)
Counting the Steps to the Door of Your Heart by Annella Summary: Jensen’s life isn’t perfect, but he’s happy enough. He has friends (well, one friend and one roommate), a prospective career (if he can pass this stupid, stupid test which requires him to be able to talk to people), a sex life of sorts (with guys who are total jerkfaces and think Jensen is a dork, which is actually true), and a life-size Dalek costume with a voice modulator which lets him EXTERMINATE things (like the toaster). Then, out of nowhere, he also has Jared (gorgeous, wonderful, socially retarded, and already taken), and his life turns upside down in the blink of an eye. For the first time, Jensen has found what he wants, but how is he going to get it?
Come As You Are (You’re All I Need) by Sinoftheday Summary: Jared and Jensen have been best friends practically their whole lives. They’ve been through good and bad and now they’ve fallen for each other. Jared thinks everything is perfect, especially since he’s off to join Jensen at college. Things fall apart though when Jensen’s brother catches them together and Jensen disappears. When he returns a year later Jared is still angry, but discovers he misses his friend. Can Jensen fix things between them and win Jared back?
Reanimated by Tigbit Summary: In which Jared manages real estate in Heaven and Jensen works as Hell’s attorney in Death Trials. Extreme ambiguity and a distinct lack of beer push Jared to accept a different kind of job in a hotter, more southern locale. The boys meet. Hi-jinks and grocery-stealing in Hell ensue. Featuring saints on book tours, love on trial, after-life bureaucracy, and sin. Surprisingly not as cracktastic as it sounds.
The Last of the Romantics by Balefully Summary: Jared is the son of the Ackles family’s chauffeur, and has been in love with Sandra, the Ackles’s adopted daughter, all his life. He goes to London to find himself, and comes back a changed man. Sandra falls in love with him at long last, threatening her financially advantageous engagement to Jeffrey Dean Morgan, the heir of Morgan Industries. Jensen, her older brother and the CEO of the Ackles Corporation, must devise a plan to keep Sandra and Jared apart so his carefully plotted merger can go through as intended. His own machinations backfire, however, as he learns the meaning of love, selflessness, and what it’s like to truly need someone else.
Until You’re Resting Here With Me by Nyxocity Summary: Accidentally trapped traveling through time through a project of his own design, Dr. Jensen Ackles finally finds himself twelve years in the past, in his own body, face to face with Jared Padalecki. His memory shot through with holes from time traveling, Jensen doesn’t remember exactly what happened between them in the past, but he knows how he feels about Jared, and he knows things ended badly. Given a chance to do it right this time, can he change history—or does destiny have bigger plans? (Based on the Quantum Leap TV series).
We Flow Together (Once and Forever) by Balefully Summary: As a child, Jensen Ackles was saved from drowning by a mysterious boy who appeared from the depths off the coast of Cape Cod. Now a grown man, Jensen is an actor in New York City, living off a trust fund from his parents, and convinced he’s incapable of true love. One fateful night finds him back in Cape Cod after a raucous party gone wrong, fighting for his life as he sinks beneath the waves. Yet again, he’s saved from a watery grave—this time by a naked man, seemingly mute and more beautiful than anyone Jensen’s ever seen. The stranger decides to call himself Jared, and as he and Jensen spend time together, learning each other body and soul, Jensen finds that his own capacity for love is as boundless as the ocean. Jensen’s world comes crashing down around him when he discovers the origin of Jared’s strange naiveté and lack of inhibitions—he’s a mermaid, fins and all. After Jared is abducted by researchers who subject him to cruel tests, Jensen must make a crucial decision: will he risk everything to finally find true love—with a fish—or will Jared be the one that got away?
Hi, I love your blog and I hope you will have any cuddly established destiel fics for me ^.^
Hey there! Thanks for loving the blog, we love you right back. I
honestly feel so bad for not being able to put enough effort into this
blog lately, but my real life suddenly went crazy and I’ve been running
between the office, bank, campus and home, trying to find time to manage through everything. Now things are getting a bit more normal and I’m finally able to read and do this blog again! As Admin A said yesterday, we’re trying our hardest to win the lottery jackpot so that we would be free to do nothing but this, lol!
about this post: by a mistake I only collected non AU fics for this
post. I really didn’t mean to do so, I only realized it after I’ve made
this, so hope you like non AU fics as well and wasn’t hoping for AU fics
instead. Maybe we can do a similar post with only AU fics in future. –
Title: It’s Shouldn’t Have Been A Surprise
Rating: General Audiences
Words: 1,525 – Finished
Admin’s assessment: ★ ★ ★
Admin J’s notes:
If this isn’t fluffy then I don’t know what is. I love it when people
can dig up the fact that what Dean and Cas share isn’t just lust or
normal love because the entire point of this ship is the profound bond
they share. In this fic the author has managed to tell that very well,
in my opinion. I also like the fact that when Sam sees them they’re so
cool and manly men, but when they think they’re alone they’re so cuties.
Summary: Dean and Cas have been together but most of
their relationship had been behind doors and away from Sam’s eyes; thank
god. That meant that Sam hadn’t been privy to any of their… you know;
but, he still worried. Sometimes their lack of intimacy made him wonder
if they were truly happy. Sam comes back early from some research and
his doubts are smoothed over.
Admin J’s notes: Why
awkward Cas is always so cute, even if the fact is that if someone else
would be this awkward in real life, it would be only… Well, awkward. I
love Cas with coupons in this one! So cute!
Summary: “Look at all these groceries, Dean,” Cas says, beaming. “They cost me precisely thirty-two cents.”
Dean looks like he isn’t sure whether to be impressed or appalled. “Cas,” he says. “How.”
Admin J’s notes: In
this one it’s only side Destiel, but it’s established and there’s so
cute Sabriel and awesome daddy!Chuck trying to fix his mistakes as a
dad. So cute! I hope you don’t hate Sabriel because otherwise this
wouldn’t be your thing at all.
Summary: AU after season 5.
After being brought back from the dead, powerless, by a romance-crazed
Chuck, Gabriel is plopped down in the Winchester brothers’ motel room
with a task to complete: find and kiss his true love within a month.
Also known as Gabriel is a Disney Princess.
Admin J’s notes:
I’m positive that most of you will consider this as one of the
fluffiest things in world, but something was off between me and this
fic. I don’t know what, maybe I was too angst-y-feely or something at
the moment, but I just… I couldn’t get a grip on it, no matter how much I
Summary: Like with many things about them, Dean’s
first attempt at a marriage proposal is both poignant and awkward. At
least half it is Cas’ fault.
Admin J’s notes:
…okay, maybe it’s just me this time. Now I started to cry over this
fic and this wasn’t even that kind of epic angst or the most romantic
thing ever kinda stuff. Just ignore me today, there’s some big mental
problems with me today! There’s another proposal fic. Totally fluffy.
we were married, I could be a Winchester,” Cas says. He doesn’t look up
from the colossal phone book he’s been perusing for the past three
hours. He doesn’t act like that would be a life changing big deal. His
index finger glides from Schneller to Schuller.
Dean loses the ability to form words. “Uh… yeah…that’s, uh, yeah.”
Admin J’s notes: I
know I’ve recced this many times before, but it’s fluffy and cute and
awesome! There are kittens and fallen Castiel and amazing Dean, so what
more can you ask for? It’s probably my favorite fluff oneshot.
While Dean is laid up for a month after breaking his leg on a hunt, Cas
decides that it’s a perfect time to adopt a litter of kittens. But even
though he’s gotten better since Purgatory, Cas still isn’t quite the
same as he was before fixing Sam’s head, and being trapped in a cabin
with him for weeks on end is making that all the more obvious to Dean.
When Sam takes off on a hunt, Dean has to figure out on his own how to
navigate his new relationship with Cas while also helping to raise a
bunch of fuzzballs that aren’t even cute. Not even a little bit.
Admin J’s notes: This
is a fic I always end up to when I read the summary. Then I remember I
have read it already, but I really don’t remember what has happened in
it. And then I re-read it only to notice that I should’ve liked it more.
But maybe you do like it more, because it’s fluffy and cute and all!
Summary: Dean keeps on getting hurt, and a newly human Cas keeps trying to make him feel better…
pairing: jikook length: oneshot (6.5k)
genre: non-au, established relationship, fluff summary: taehyung calls it ‘project cockblock’. yoongi calls it a stupid
idea. (or: the five times bts attempted an intervention, and the one
time jikook finally gets it)
Hi, love your handy dandy blog! I'm looking for Destiel fics of any length that stay pretty canon or canon-adjacent, which involves them realising their feelings for one another and feature Dean being very confused about his sexuality and their 'profound bond'. I've looked through your tags and found a couple that fit the bill, but are there any you'd especially recommend? Thanks!
Hi there! Thank you for the compliments, always makes our day to hear that. I think that what you asked for is a pretty basic set-up in non AU Destiel fics, if you don’t count established relationship fics, of course. When wouldn’t Dean be having some issues with himself when he realizes his feelings for Cas? Anyhow, in some ways this was actually a pretty hard question since my brain couldn’t work out the information in what fics Dean is really having some major issues. It sucks when the details of fics keep mixing up, isn’t it? I need to start tagging the fics into my secret folders better so I’ll remember in which fics Dean is really, really having huge gay issues. But, for now, I collected you some of my favorites in which Dean is denying his feelings or doesn’t realize his feelings right away. Hope you’ll enjoy these! – Admin J
Title: The Tunnel of Love
Words: 21,421 – Finished
Admin’s assessment: ★ ★ ★ ★
Admin J’s notes: This is a pretty canon fic. The summary isn’t that promising and I was expecting some brainless fluff with no actual plot or anything, but that wasn’t the deal. This author really thinks every single detail and it got me many times like “oh, yeah, that shit, heh, almost forgot about it”. It’s a good case fic with Dean freaking out because he doesn’t wanna fuck things up with Cas.
Summary: “We might,” Cas starts slowly, pausing like he’s choosing his words. “We might have to kiss.”
Admin J’s notes: Give a chance for this fic, okay? It might feel not fitting at first but I really think it’s something that will fit into your needs.
Summary: Dean wakes up in a bed next to very human Castiel, and a journal in his own handwriting that tells him it’s two years in the future. The house looks like Bobby’s, and Sam lives there too… He just can’t remember how they got from the angels falling from the sky to comfortable domesticity. While there is much in the journal Dean doesn’t remember, there is much of their story he’s always known. And she settles into the routine of his new life and relationship with Castiel, it quickly becomes something he doesn’t know how to live without.
Admin J’s notes: It’s been awhile since I last time read this fic but if I remember right there was a quite some time before the two actually hook up and the first kiss scene was pretty epic. I sure as hell wish I remember it right, please, correct me if it wasn’t this fic. Or maybe it wasn’t the first kiss. Anyway, the first time Sam and Benny and other guys see them kissing. God, I need more hours a day so I could re-read all my favorites. I need to quit something. Maybe working? I can’t fit school, work and Destiel into my life properly. Work has to go.
Summary: “Hey Sammy? You didn’t happen to start an apocalypse while I was in Purgatory, did you?”
After the disappearance of the One, pagan gods are fighting over who
gets the world. Alliances are forged and broken, Zeus and Enlil form a
bromance, Odin teams up with Isis, Loki probably has an evil plan,
Artemis ponders second-wave feminism, Crowley is amused, the angels are
not, Inanna has opinions, Don is a Carver Edland fan.
Admin J’s notes: Pretty canon until the point Cas becomes God. Or not God, but you know… god. If you want Dean freaking out ‘cause of his gay thoughts for Cas, then this is your choice. I promise you, this will drive you crazy. I was angry, then I was frustrated, then I was angry again. Damn it, Dean!
Summary: How could a homophobic hunter fall for an ex-angel-slash-god wearing a male vessel? Well, just ask Dean Winchester.
Admin J’s notes: Okay, maybe this was a less angst and dark than you’d like, but Dean sure has some identity issues and problems with himself. It’s funny and everybody need a bit fun once in awhile.This was actually a pretty hard question, you know? It’s not that easy to pick fics for this.
Summary: It’s not that hard to date an angel. All Dean has to do is fight off hordes of vampires, research gay porn, get sucked into a crappy Narnia, endure Sam’s comments, creep out on Dr. Sexy, get harassed – oh, and that’s right– figure out he’s into Cas. Easy, right?
Admin J’s notes: I know it’s always good when universe wants to tell something to Dean. Always. I love it how frustrated Dean is starting to be after all the realities and how he finally gets it. And I don’t wanna spoil anything, but the ending of this story is so good!
Summary: 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.
Admin J’s notes: This is a perfect fic about Dean realizing his own feelings. I have a big thing for amnesia fics and this really is my favorite fic ever. It’s basically head-canon, even though Dean isn’t hunting anymore. However, the things happened in the show are reality, it’s just many years past those hunting years. I love this fic. God bless the author. If you haven’t read it yet, stop whatever it is you’re doing at the moment and read it. And if you have, then, well… Re-read it.
Summary: After his humanity is restored, Dean wakes up bed with Castiel, a wedding ring, and no memory of the past twelve years.
Admin J’s notes: So is there anyone who doesn’t love Gabriel? I’m like the biggest Gabriel fan ever. Seriously, he’s the best dickhead archangel slash trickster slash big brother ever. And when Gabe decides that Dean and Cas are meant to be together, even if the two of them won’t get it, well… Then they will be, no matter what it costs.
Summary: Picture your typical rom-com cliché. Now picture Dean stuck in that rom-com cliché. With Castiel. Because that’s what happening to him - a crazy whirlwind of your typical-and-not-so-typical cliché’s. He’s playing the main lead in all of them and Castiel’s his counterpart. Of course, the culprit is obvious. Gabe’s enjoying himself too much, lying back on his favourite cloud with a tub of salted popcorn.
It was about time someone kicked the two knuckleheads into gear.
Admin J’s notes: I wasn’t quite sure if I wanted to rec this here, but why the hell not? Because this is all about Dean and Cas being stupid and not getting together early enough. It’s sad and melancholy, just a perfect museaway fic, and I guess in some ways it fits into what you asked for.
Summary: There’s no time for nerves, no time for second guessing. There’s only right now, and right now he has Cas.
Do you know any case fics where Dean, Cas and Sam are driving through the country like road trip style while fighting against whatever evil comes their way?! Or just Dean and Sam driving to some small town to kill vampires or whatever and then they meet Cas who is local or something.
Hey there! We have many case fics, just check those in HERE. However, I don’t remember how many of those included driving to somewhere more than just one sentence saying that they just drove. So, I tried to scrape together some sort of a list of road trip slash non au fics. Here you go, hope you’ll enjoy these! Once in awhile you just need to read some very canon-like case fics, right?

Title: the taste of gravel in the mouth
Words: 22,395 – Finished
Admin’s assessment: ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
Admin J’s notes: A different kind of a road trip! I love fallen Cas and even more I love it when he’s done something to save Dean and felt because of that. I’m a terrible person, but the fics in which Dean gets older and older and Cas just stays with that perfect face until Dean dies are not cool. I want them to be old together (or die young together, but whatever).
Summary: This is what Cas gave up Heaven for: greasy diner food, shitty motel rooms with even shittier cable, long car rides spent in complete silence except for the same six tapes playing over and over again, and a burnt-out husk of a man who can barely hold a conversation anymore.
Admin J’s notes: Let’s face the facts first: in this one they aren’t driving across the country to kill monsters. I just wanted an excuse to rec this for you. It’s a non AU fic after all, so it’s basically a case fic without a case. Logical.
Summary: There’s no time for nerves, no time for second guessing. There’s only right now, and right now he has Cas.
Admin J’s notes: So many of my favorites in one fic: fallen Cas, Cas saving Dean’s ass, hunter Cas, Destiel, case… It’s so good! And so well written. Who are you author, why I don’t know you (yet)?
Summary: It feels like a punch in the gut everytime Cas says ‘thank you’. ‘Thank you for letting me stay, Dean,“Thank you for not kicking me out,’ 'Thank you for letting me borrow your old clothes,’ 'Thank you for driving me,’ 'Thank you for buying me food,’ Fucking thank you this thank you that. Like he’s being given a piece of heaven.
How Dean finally forgave Cas for everything he sacrificed for Dean. How Dean finally learned to forgive himself for everything he put Cas through.
Admin J’s notes: This just makes me to miss Italy and Portugal and all the places that are important to me. And Italian ice cream. And oh yes, the fic. It’t not a case fic, but they’re having a road trip. I seriously think that I have got so badly distracted with this ask. Anyway, in this fic there are many good and hilarious parts, like the Cas in zoo for example, it was amazing, but in some way something went missing and I didn’t enjoy this as much as I would have wanted to.
Summary: With the apocalypse off the table and Sam returned from the pit, Team Free Will finds themselves at loose ends. When Sam suggests they take a holiday, Dean expects many things. Wearing flip-flops isn’t one of them.
Admin J’s notes: This is actually Sabriel with slightly side Destiel, so if you’re not into Sabriel, just skip this. But if you are, or if you want to give Sabriel a chance, just read this. It’s amazing.
Summary: A post-apocalyptic road trip with a still recovering archangel wasn’t how Sam had envisioned the aftermath of their big plan, but it sure beat a lot of the alternatives.

The ask box is open, yay! I was wondering if you could find some non-AU fics (that are less than 50,000 words, and completed) about Dean struggling with coming to terms with his sexuality and some angsty stuff with Cas that turns into fluff or smut, or both ;) Thanks for the awesome recs, you guys are the best! (P.S. if you have a rec similar to this, you can link me to that. It's hard to tell on mobile)
Hey there! Yay, The Box was open and then it wasn’t again and soon it will be. Confusing enough? It sucks that we can’t keep it open all the time. Lottery jackpot, where are you? We need you so that we can make this our full-time job. Admin A and I have already discussed about how we could use the lottery money to set-up an office. Imagine a freaking office with framed Destiel pictures on the walls and everything. That would be professional Destiel stuff, lol!
But, the ask: we have already make a post about Dean struggling with his identity some time ago. You should check that out in HERE, though I’m pretty sure some of those fics are longer ones. I also think that pretty much all the djinn fics I’ve recced are something that could fit, so check those out, too, in HERE.
Anyway, that’s one of the most popular subject in Destiel fics, because Dean with issues is so very… Well, Dean, isn’t it? I’ve picked up couple more of these Dean’s gay panic fics, so here you go. Enjoy! – Admin J

Admin J’s notes: Apparently Cas is a manipulative bitch and Dean has a kink for his butt being touched. I didn’t quite get this one, but who cares, maybe you do! Some gay panic over here.
Summary: Written for the prompt:
canon!verse first time destiel where Cas accidentally discovers how much Dean likes his butt touched and then shamefully exploits it while Dean is too far up his own gay panic to notice he’s being manipulated into buying Cas orange sweaters and shit - until Cas is literally groping him one tipsy night and reality finally sinks in (words chosen carefully)

Admin J’s notes: I loved it until… THE SMUT NEVER CAME! I was promised to get some smut by the rating but it never came. I’m offended! I can’t give it five stars, no matter how good the story was.
Summary: Castiel was acting strange. Well, stranger than normal. Heck, even stranger than he had been when he first Fell over six months ago. Dean had been living with the guy since then, and even in the early months of Cas’s humanness he hadn’t avoided Dean as much as he did this morning.
Admin J’s notes: The name of the fic is so good. Like a movie I’d pick up, being positive I’m gonna cry my eyes out. The fic itself was okay-ish, kinda no plot thing, but Dean dealing his gay issues is always funny, so that’s that. And this was like the shittiest note ever.
Summary: Season 2 Sam and Dean are thrust forward in time and encounter their Season 9 counterparts.
How will they react to who they’ve become?
And most importantly, how will Dean react to his future self being with a certain angel of the lord?
Admin J’s notes: In
this one Dean is already with Cas, but he panics over John’s reaction.
This fic has everything it it I like: awkward Cas, Dean dealing with his
(daddy) issues, Destiel in general, John’s A+ parenting… But for some
reason I still didn’t like it as much as I should’ve. It sucks! I’ve
read it twice, just in case that at the first time I was having some
brain problems and didn’t like it that much back then ‘cause of that,
but no. Something’s off between me and this fic. And it sucks. Big
Summary: What happens when John Winchester suddenly comes back to life, and meets the boys as they are today?
“The last time I felt close to you…” Niall’s voice is small and he feels the insecurity creeping back in. “I just want Vegas back.”
It’s Zayn’s birthday and Niall’s been excited to give him his present for months, but Zayn’s a little busy and doesn’t seem to have the time these days. Things are a little different between them lately, and all the tension adds up to them fighting and Niall saying something he immediately regrets.
Do you know any good realistic fics (like, non-au)?
Anonymous said to twentyonepilotsficlibrary:any of your favorite (preferably decent length I guess not an absolute need tho) fics where it’s non AU like it’s just them how they are now I lap that shit up I immerse so quickly bc I’m always on the verge of outright believing it’s somehow real n it just cleanses my pores purifies my bones but everything always seems to be AU (which I lov but like it makes it more fictional I want REAL shit dude) sorry I’m ramble
