Happy Destiel day to all of you. ❤

Here, have some love from Dean to Cas, because this is something that we all crave lately, and that canon SPN always seems to be lacking.

The cheap motel room was dark, and the temperature was lower than Dean would’ve liked it to be. He turned on the tiny lamp on the nightstand, so that he could properly examine the angel that he had forced down on the shabby motel bed just now, after taking off aforementioned angel’s coat and shoes.

Cas was glaring at Dean through eyelids that were already drooping, but those blue eyes still had some fight left in them, giving Dean that look that was clearly attempting to communicate the words ‘I am fine’.

Dean ignored it as he pulled the blankets over Castiel. When he was done he hesitated, but ended up sitting down on the edge of the bed. There was nothing to worry about; since they apparently were going to need three beds instead of two tonight, Sam had decided to book an extra room for himself, meaning that he wouldn’t be there to witness anything that Dean thought could be interpreted as ‘not manly’.

“None of this is necessary, Dean…” Cas objected, voice slurry, trying to get up but failing due to a lack of strength. “I’m an angel… I’m already… healing as we speak.”

Dean rolled his eyes as he placed a hand on Cas’ shoulder, holding him down. Dean was all too familiar with this, this came right out of the Dean Winchester handbook… Pretending that all was fine. Not letting others care, even when desperately craving some comfort.

“Yeah, I know you’re healing.” Dean agreed as he watched the blood that was drying on Cas’ face. “But I also know that you need to get a few hours of sleep, because you look like shit. No offence.”

“Angels don’t sleep.” Cas protested, even as blue eyes slowly fluttered closed again, his own body proving him wrong.

Dean sighed, tiredly shaking his head.

“’Course you don’t.” He mocked his friend as he heard how Castiel’s breathing was already beginning to even out.

A few more heartbeats, and the angel was fast asleep. Dean knew that this was his cue to move away and get some sleep as well, but his eyes seemed to be glued to Cas’ sleeping form. Cas looked so much younger, like the world hadn’t taken its toll on him. Like he wasn’t an angel who’d been soldiering on for millennia, never once catching a break. The sight was rare, and if Dean was going to be honest with himself, it was also some kind of beautiful. Cas was some kind of beautiful.

And so Dean stayed there, watching, losing track of time, not even knowing why he did it. His hand never strayed from Cas’ shoulder, not until Cas suddenly called out a soft “Dean” into the semi-darkness.

When Dean checked, Cas’ eyes were still firmly closed. Sleep talking then. Dean couldn’t do anything but revel in the knowledge that this celestial being was apparently dreaming about him. He smiled despite his exhaustion, his hand unconsciously moving to gently brush Cas’ hair out of his face.

“Yeah, I’m here.” Dean whispered, smile wavering as his mind unexpectedly filled itself with possible images of the many times when the situation had been reversed. “I’ll watch over you, Cas.”

Arrow Fic: Thus Far You Are The Best Thing

A/N: Another installment in the Sight of the Sun post-finale roadtrip ‘verse. At a vineyard in Coast City, Nyssa pays them a surprise visit.

(Sight of the Sun Series: Pack Light - Some Scars - Everything I Want From This Life)

A bit more angst, with this one, sorry! But there was some STUFF to deal with, y’all.

Thus Far You Are The Best Thing

AO3 / ff.net

“So, despite what I’ve done, I pray to God that we can move on,
‘cause thus far you are the best thing that this life is yet to lose.”
“Sight of the Sun” - fun.

Nyssa shows up in Coast City, because of course she does. There are few places that the ancient black leather of the League would stand out more than the seaside vineyard where they’re staying for the night.

They’ve just finished what might be the best dinner Felicity’s ever had (despite the fact that she nearly spilled pinot noir all over her pretty new dress when he ran his hand up the thigh slit under the table) and they’re rushing their way back to the private cabin when suddenly, she appears, in full League gear, among the grapevines. Oliver’s wife.

That You May Succeed (Quran 3:200 – Last Verse of Surat Al `Imran)

يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آَمَنُوا اصْبِرُوا وَصَابِرُوا وَرَابِطُوا وَاتَّقُوا اللَّهَ لَعَلَّكُمْ تُفْلِحُونَ

O those who have believed, endure patiently, compete with each other in being patient, stand firm in your faith and encourage others to stand firm with you, and fear God, so that you may succeed.

Congratulations on losing the only girl who had your back. I almost feel pity for you, you didn’t even realize you were giving away the one person who’d stuck around for your constant bullshit and drama. Maybe it was because she loved you or maybe it was because she thought she could see the reflection of a better person through all of your flaws. Perhaps she looked passed all of mistakes because having you in her life was more important than any of the wrong doings and damage you’d caused. She was naive, but she was not dumb and soon enough the light in her eyes that lit the room when she looked at you burnt out. The text messages, phone calls, it was all gone. Voicemail became the only way to reach her. She stopped finding small ways to see you but when you bumped into her on accident sometimes, the smile that’d she greet you with that was filled with hope was exchanged with a small glance but the floor always seemed to have her attention when you tried to make conversation. You remember the days when you were everything, and now you’re nothing.
—  Sometimes change is for the best.

Surat al-Anfal

وَمَا كَانَ اللَّهُ لِيُعَذِّبَهُمْ وَأَنْتَ فِيهِمْ وَمَا كَانَ اللَّهُ مُعَذِّبَهُمْ وَهُمْ يَسْتَغْفِرُونَ (33)

But Allah would not punish them while you, [O Muhammad], are among them, and Allah would not punish them while they seek forgiveness.
