there was some pouting from Gabe re:not being allowed to sleep in Sam’s room, but Sammy had to get up bright and early for work so Dean had to do.

Sam is kinda surprised (to put it mildly) when the next morning Dean exits the bedroom with a sleep-mussed formerly-‘please don’t touch me’ fledgeling tucked comfortably in the crook of his arm, Gabriel having beaten the both of them to the kitchen. Cas isn’t magically 'better’ of course, but he starts opening up tiny bit by tiny bit.
