    Summary

    Their final moments are upon them. They’ve played their final card and Chuck is announcing curtain call. But Dean still has a few seconds left. A few seconds to right the only wrong he’s ever truly regretted.

    So Dean will do the only thing he can do. His one final move in the famous final scene of Chuck’s shitty story. Something that Chuck believed completely unfathomable. Something, that, throughout all the universes, he’d never seen – not once.

    Dean is about to answer a question that Cass should have never even needed to ask.

    And maybe – maybe – one last ditch effort in a world gone mad is enough to turn the tides just enough so they might hear what ‘the exultant sound of a canon booming in the night’ really means.

    OR

    Instead of sending them to Purgatory, Michael traverses all the universes with Dean and Castiel in the hopes of finding one where good prevailed and Chuck was defeated. Along the way Dean and Castiel's relationship is put under strain.

    Will Michael play mediator?

    Will the alternate versions of Dean, Sam and Castiel force them to face their decisions and mend their relationship?

    What ‘the exultant sound of a canon booming in the night’ really mean?

    Summary

    The Winchesters died a long time ago. Taken out in a blaze of glory, their names dissolved into legend, and many people believe they are nothing more than that.

    Many years later, a couple of hunters stumble across the Men of Letters bunker and discover that maybe the Winchesters aren't just legends.

    Summary

    The last few years had been very hard on Dean.

    He was... Drained. Burned out.

    Because even though Cas and him had made up in their second round in Purgatory, he was never around anymore. It looked like he was avoiding him and Dean just couldn't understand why

     

    OR the time in season 15 (before Jack gets his soul back) that Cas avoids Dean after his apology on Purgatory because of his deal with the Empty and Dean tries to confront him about it.

    Summary

    Dean is in his room thinking about Jack's apology after regaining his soul. After waking up in the early morning, he prays for Cas to come to his room because he wants to know how Angel emotions work anyway. He gets more than he bargained for when a tired Castiel confesses he loves the green-eyed hunter. This confession causes Dean to take a good long look at his own soul, all while relying on the Angel's bravery to see him through it.

    This takes place after 15 x 13, "Destiny's Child".

    Deals with Castiel's deal with the Empty, Dean's internalized homophobia brought about by his upbringing, and a shot at the apple pie life.

    Summary

    One-shots of all the ways Castiel can be taken by The Empty.

    ...

    “I’d like to welcome you all here today to mourn the passing of a good friend.” His voice is solemn, the slight waver indicates that something is actually wrong – that Dean isn’t just playing a prank on them.

    “He’s stuck with me for years.” Dean exhales. Castiel glances at Sam to see if he has any inkling of what is happening.
    Why would Dean call them here? Today? To stand near a shallow grave?

    The set-up is a funeral. Not a hunter’s funeral but a more traditional one. But, the thing is, there’s no body to be seen. And in Castiel’s knowledge, for a funeral, you need a corpse.

    Sam raises his hand half-way.

    “What?” Dean seems annoyed.

    “Are you talking about Cass?”

    “No. Sam!” Dean rolls his eyes. “How can we have a funeral for Cass if he’s standing right there.”

    "What I'm trying to say is that I love you Cass"

    Castiel takes a step forward, wanting to pull Dean close – to hug him or to taste his lips, for the very first time – when he feels the tugging on his grace.

    In his confusion, he stumbles, falling directly into the grave that Dean dug.

    Never to rise again.

    Summary

    A bunch of one-shots based on how I think Supernatural will end.

    ...

    “There’s something I’ve always wanted to know… so I’ll give you a chance to save them.” Chuck raises one finger then. “One of them.”

    “What?” Sam snaps, glancing around with wild eyes. “It’s Dean, you gotta save Dean.”

    His voice is desperate yet resigned. Sam’s breaths come in pants and he’s clearly frazzled. The brothers clearly recognize that Chuck means business. Castiel tries to catch Dean’s gaze, to try and gauge his reaction but he’s facing Sam, staring at his brother intently.

    As expected, Dean shakes his head no before turning to face the angel. “Cass, you know Sammy has a future. Please. Do this for me.”

    He’s never been able to deny Dean anything. But doing this would mean losing him. And if he saves Dean, they lose Sam. It’s an impossible choice. Castiel feels his eyes burn and he’s forced to look away from Dean. How can he pick one when they both mean so much to him? It feels like he isn’t in his body, like some other person is standing here, being asked to pick which one of their family members lives and which dies. Flashes of their bodies on the ground, eyes burnt out swarm his mind.

    Sam... or Dean?

    Summary

    15x13 Coda

    It may take two to tango but it takes three to get Dean's head on straight and six to fight god.

    Or these two idiots finally learn from their 11 years of history that using your words is a good thing, and that teamwork does in fact make the dream work

    Summary

    “You told me in tongues.” Dean snaps “Can you try it again in English?”

    At his side, Cass bristles. “My deal is when I’m happy he will take me.”

    “Dean.” He begins. “The things that can make me happy are numbered. When the Shadow peered inside my mind, it saw everything. My feelings of inadequacy and uselessness, my greatest fears, my enemies… the people I love.”

    “I’m not saying you made the wrong call Cass.” He says gently. “Just - why didn’t you tell us?”

    “What would that have done?”

    “Something.” Dean insists. “We'd have gone face to face with that monster!”

    “There it is.” Cass says softly. “What good would that have done? The thing that could make me happy… facing off against the being who wishes to take it all away?”

    That gives Dean pause. “Me and Sam… we make you happy?”

    “Yes.” Cass says carefully. “Being with you and Sam brings me great joy.”

    “Dean.” Cass says sternly, catching his attention. “Once I thought that you knew. You are a connoisseur in matters such as this. Now, that we're in a place that is all our own, I think you’re ready to hear this.”

    Dean’s been ready for the past hour, but okay.

    “You make me unbelievably happy Dean.”

    Summary

    Dean fiddles with his glass. “I uh, now that this is over. Now that we can have a normal life. I’ve been thinking of starting something.”

    Dean Winchester’s love. He knows that he must have it; in a certain capacity. But he wants it to be different. He wants Dean’s love to be of the same caliber as his… from the same deep seated desire.

    “I’m happy for you Dean.”

    “No you’re not.” He says with a dry look. “Do you want to at least meet them?”

    Castiel would rather jump into hell but okay.

    “Where is she?”

    ...

    Surveying the room, he finds nothing out of place. Castiel wonders where Dean’s lady is.

    In typical Dean fashion, he saunters up to the closet and rips it open.

    Really?

    Castiel walks closer anyway, curiosity waring with his jealousy.

    He looks inside and finds nothing.

    “Do you see them?” Dean questions eagerly.

    “No.” he says sourly.

    Dean rolls his eyes. “Look closer.”

    Castiel looks for the hell of it. And nothing. Big surprise.

    “I see nothing but your lumberjack clothes and this infuriating mirror.”

    Dean chuckles at his discomfort. “And who’s in the mirror, jackass?”

    Castiel looks back, just to confirm.

    “Me?”

    Summary

    There are a lot of reasons Cas is the greatest. One of them is that Dean can come out of the post office with a three-and-a-half-foot-long stuffed shark and he won’t really blink twice over it.

    “Charlie got him for us,” Dean tells him, which is technically true. “His name’s Blåhaj.”

    Summary

    Dean wakes up one morning, and everything just feels off. Like something (or someone) has been taken from him. There's a room in the bunker he can barely get himself to look at anymore. There's a mug with a naked angel on it that he knows used to be funny, but he can't remember why.

    When Dean decides he needs answers, he heads to Sioux Falls to let Patience poke around in his memories. Armed with the knowledge of what they've lost, Team Free Will 2.0 and the Wayward Sisters get ready for their last, greatest fight: the fight to tell their own story.

    Summary

    “Cass.” He says, “I need you.”

    The prayer flows off his lips easily, the emotion itself is familiar; the words, not so much.

    Countless times, those words had been on the tip of his tongue. But something always held them back.

    He just hopes that Cass will listen.

    ...

    “You don’t have to do anything.” He assures. “If you leave right now, I promise, you and I will still be good.”

    “I know.” Cass says. “But I’ll come with you. Wherever you go.”

    Their eyes connect and Dean sees the sincerity in them.

    “Tell me what you need Dean.”

    Dean licks his lips and turns, blowing the dust off of an old record player.

    “Dean wait!” Cass’ voice comes out in a rush, halting Dean’s hand. The panic in his friend’s voice is palpable. “I promised I wouldn’t leave again.” Cass says, his voice shaking.

    Dean fists his hand together to stop them from shaking. “You don’t have to do this.” He assures.

    “But I want to.” Cass admits. “You don’t know how much I want this Dean. You.” Cass’ voice is wrecked, his expression pained as though the conversation is physically killing him.

    “Then what’s wrong.”

    Blue eyes flash to his, filled with tears, regret and love. “The Shadow.”
