“Angels are immortal,” Cas rolls
his eyes at Dean when the hunter points to an ad for a retirement
home. But still, Cas buys the magazine for the hunter, anyway, liking
the way it made him smile.
“Angels don’t need food,” Cas says
with a straight face, but when Dean offers it, he takes a bite of the
hunter’s pie, anyway, every time.
“Angels can just fly,” Cas reminds
Dean when the hunter holds open the car door for him. But, with one
look, Cas slides into the passenger’s seat of the impala without
“Angels don’t need to breathe,” Cas
says after Dean’s eyes go wide when the angel stays under the water
too long. And, when Dean still looks concerned, Cas grabs the
hunter’s hand and places it on his own chest forcing the air in and
out to reassure him.
“Angels don’t need sleep,” Cas
whispers when Dean covers the angel with a blanket after they watch a
movie on the couch. But he quiets very quickly when he realizes the
blanket is for both of them and lets Dean fall asleep on him instead.
“Angels can feel longing,” Cas says
when he flies to Dean’s room and finds him wiping away the tears.
And, instead, he replaces the hunter’s hand with his, sweeping away
the tracks with gentle fingers.
“Angels can heal,” Cas says, this
time pleading to an unseen God when Dean’s insides are on his shirt,
his eyes twisted in pain until the angel’s hands touch the side of
“Angels can fall in love,” Cas
declares so quietly and gently, when he’s holding Dean, finally
healed, inside the crook of his arms, looking into green eyes and
counting freckles like they’re flecks of gold he’d protect at all
I once read a fanfiction where Cas was an alien creature with tentacles who lived in water and Dean was a scientist studying him. Dean was examining him by feeling around his body and he like touched what was basically Cas's genitalia and eventually it ended up with dean pleasuring Cas.... so yeah your lettuce fic actually wasn't that weird
Cute high school Dean being all nervous because he’s liked Castiel for a long time and he finally told him, his cheeks all red and Cas finding it freaking adorable, Cas kissing Dean and him being awkward because he doesn’t really know how to kiss
I've been thinking about the whole Cas as Jesus arc, and I just had a thought: What if he comes back during 13x03? "On the third day he rose again..."
Yeah this is more or less what I expect, timing wise… well, it dépends obviously on quite a few points but this is definitely a strong contender. It’s a nice idea! I mean I see Cas’s sacrifice in the Jesus parallel as being his final choice to become Human, his final fall, but yeah still - lots of parallels are all over the place in terms of characters portraying them and time wise but they are all still there.
Meanwhile, Mary Magdalene, sometimes viewed as Jesus’ lover, who loved Jesus regardless, cared for his body and washed his wounds after he was killed and before he rose… I’d love to see some pining!dean and something along thèse lines in 13x01…
But now with… more angst and free worded love obviously ;)
Dean just one day slamming his head against a wall and going “FUCK FUCKETY FUCK FUCK” before turning around to Cas and saying, “You know what? Fuck this shit. I like Taylor Swift and baking and wearing lacy underwear and /guys/, specifically you, and I’m tired of acting like my dad wanted. I fucking love you, okay?”
