A post-08.17 Goodbye, Stranger story.



I’m constantly amazed by how fast this fandom can produce new stories about recent episodes, and how thoughtful and imaginative these stories are. This fic takes that little scene from 8x17 with Cas on the bus and spins it into Castiel’s meditative journey of self-doubt and self-realization. Overall, this a is beautifully written fic about all the emotional issues I wish Dean and Cas would have a chance to talk about on the show. Until they do, we have this fic.

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

THE WOODMAN.

David is a man who has spent his entire life working with wood. This might seem like nothing out of the ordinary, but when we take into account that he lives without a phone, mains electrical power and the only way to contact him is by pining a note to a gate; things become far more interesting. His living accommodation, based in Cornwall, England, is a compound made up of various shacks which he has built with his own bare hands. His wood carvings represent years of intense study of the matierial, and the personality each piece holds when it eventually arrives at his feet. This is a short story of a man who physically lives through his art all year long. His disconnection from the modern world shows an unmatched dedication and he represents a dying breed. Meet, The Woodman!
