Destiel AU after 8.17 (Goodbye Stranger). I’m pretty sure everyone has heard of this fic by now it has 251 comments on AO3 but I love it and I wanted to tell everyone. A good portion of the fic is Dean and Cas conversing through text and the way we see how they write the texts is heartbreaking and revealing and so accurate (have you ever tried to compose an important text message? because this is one of the best descriptions of it i’ve seen or read or heard). Sam is also great in this fic, obviously caring about Dean and Cas despite his trial-related problems and is also occasionally hilarious. I really love what we learn about Cas and what Cas learns about himself while he’s traveling with the tablet. basically i love this fic please read it if you haven’t.

i just read this fanfiction that takes places right after 8x17 and the way destiel happens is just so fucking awesome i can’t even okay

“This is getting into, like, the romantic, and I’m not good at that. I’m sitting here spilling my gay guts to you and that’s fucked up, too. I just. Cas, I don’t know how to do this.”

can we get that on the show please? even without the kiss omfg

I love how it manages to be so incredibly Destiel and incredibly powerful emotionally and yet the author kept them in character.

Money, and no Money

If money truly measured ANY aspect of happiness in love, I might not be the happiest girl in the world.

But I am so convinced that, actually, I am. 

There are things beyond money power. And I would not trade mine with 10 million diamonds. (and I love diamonds, come on)

I would not trade our song to begin with. The song that started our love, healed our pain and will no doubt go with us till the end.  

I would not trade my hand-made latern from him to me, built under the autumn weather, in our spot for several hours. That’s my one and only latern I would keep for life (which needs to be found and amended after the moving).

I would not trade all the occassion homecook meals coming straight out from the internet recipe that he struggled so hard just to figure out what is what. And all from the heart are good and heart-melted. 

I would not trade his beautiful handwriting in the love cards, from Finland to Vietnam, from Finland to Finland, from Finland to Japan, only love has no limits.

I would not trade everytime he skipped work for my paranoid feelings, for all the fight or just simply for a long lost calculator in the storage, because someone’s having an exam soon. 

I would not trade his pride for me everytime colleagues, friends or random strangers came across. I know to him, I am just perfect, or perfectly imperfect. (Right eh? baby)

I would not trade how he took me to Ireland my dreamland with his limited budget just to fulfill my teenage dream, how we crossed the Atlantic ocean leaving all the burden behind and how we are going to explore the world together. 

….And so many many many other things.

So yes, if it’s from the heart that counts, I am the richest girl here now.
