Warning: Arranged marriage
Word Count: 924
Pairing: Castiel x Reader
Summary: After being abducted by angels, you are taken to Heaven and told that you have no choice but to marry one of their kind. His name is Castiel.
A union in the planning for hundreds of years, and it all comes to a climax in your day and age. You’re not even sure it serves a purpose anymore, but the older of the two worlds involved is determined to see it happen nonetheless. The angels had explained the reasoning behind the union the day they abducted you, but you could tell they really don’t care, and they’re only seeing this through because they have to. It’s one of those things that, if ignored, will elicit punishment. You don’t remember why this has to happen, and truth be told, you don’t care.
For an angel, you suppose Castiel isn’t the worst of them, but that doesn’t mean you want to marry him. The way he behaves tells you that he’s apprehensive of this plan as well, but you can also tell that he’s very submissive and obeying of his superiors.
Angels are advocates for incredibly arcane marriage rules, or maybe they never got around to moving on from the dark ages. Some feathered bitch read out a list of said rules to you at some point. Castiel is not obligated to see you beyond the wedding day and the following night, but you are required to obey his beck and call. You are not permitted to speak in his presence unless he explicitly gives you permission to do so, nor are you allowed to travel anywhere outside of the home without his approval. The list goes on, but they all spell out a patriarchal, dictator-style relationship.
