    Summary

    A 14.13 Lebanon rewrite. When Dean uses a wish-granting pearl to try and kill the archangel Michael before he can escape the cage in Dean's head, they instead wind up with a newly-resurrected John Winchester.

    It's been more than a decade since John died, and a lot has changed: Mary is alive, Sam and Dean have what passes for a proper home in the Men of Letters Bunker, and they're living with angels. John doesn't know angels are real, he doesn't know about the fragile new relationship between Dean and Castiel, and most of all, he doesn't know that Dean said yes to Michael, or that Dean's plan to defeat Michael would send him to a fate worse than death.

    Now Dean must contend with both his father asking questions he can't answer, and his loved ones learning about the darker truths of his childhood, all while constantly battling the archangel trapped inside him. But Dean coming to terms with his history may be the difference between this being the beginning of a journey—or the end.

    Summary


    A collection of Destiel one-shots each based on a song from Taylor Swift's 2020 album, Evermore.

    Most recent updates (Full TOC in Ch.1):
    14. marjorie: "Ever since the mark made Cas go crazy, ever since I had to bury him in a Ma'lak box."
    15. closure: Sam comes across secret letters between Dean and Cas.
    16. evermore: Castiel is wary of allowing Dean to help him after he's hurt on a hunt.

    Except from Ch.8 (15x18 fix-it):
    Dean turned, facing towards the open room, towards Cas. The shelves of books and boxes cast lines of shadow onto his dusty shoulders. “Cas, about what you said-” Dean started.

    “You don’t have to say anything, Dean.” The sigil had been cleaned away, but Cas still kept his hand raised, palm flat against the door. He slid it downwards slowly, fingers lingering like rain drops. “I meant it, that happiness can be just in being.”

    “It doesn’t have to be,” Dean said softly. He pressed his lips together, thinking the thing that he couldn’t say out loud and thinking it and thinking it and directing all of it towards Cas as if somehow Cas would hear it.

    Summary

    "I’m gonna find you Cas, don’t worry. Wherever you are, whatever they’ve done to you, to either of you, it doesn’t matter, I’ll be there soon. I promise, I promise- even if I have to tear heaven apart myself, I don’t care. I’ll do it."

    Lucifer never found him and Jack's birth went smoothly and secretly. Cas raised him quietly, carefully, and alone, up in Washington, before the angels found them.

    Summary

    How are you Dean?”
    “Me? I’m good Cass. Walking on water.”
    With pride he informs Dean that the saying is actually, “Walking on air.”

    A strange noise comes through the speakers then. A noise that he’d only heard a few times before: a morbid cross between a sob and a scream.

    “Why didn’t you call me?” the questions slips out. Sam had gotten a goodbye at least and Dean had planned to spend a few days with Mary. Did he have any time set aside for Castiel at all? “When you and your stupid plan were heading to the bottom of the ocean… you never called me.”

    “I was going to.” He hears how much the admission drains Dean. “I knew– I knew, only two people would be able to stop me: Sam- and you.”

    “I would have called you… I planned to in fact, the moment that Billie locked me in and I knew that there was no way to turn back. Then I’d call you.”

    “Sometimes I’d dream –” Castiel hears him struggling for breath. He imagines his friend. Alone. Drowning. Dean had told him that Michael kept him underwater while he possessed him. Now it would be the same. Dean would be drowning with Michael. Forever. “I dreamt that I’d be in the box… then my phone would die and I wouldn’t get to call you.”

    Summary

    “I think it’s time for me to move on.” Everyone leaves.

    A calliope of sound bombards him.

    So much for ‘we are real.’ So much for them.

    Maybe they could have fixed things. He knew they’d both done things and said things. There hadn’t been time to think about what he feels… to separate emotion from adrenaline. But the angel had decided it was too late. He’d decided it was too late just like he’d decided not to tell them about Jack… when he decided to change the plan.

    Maybe this is for the best. But…

    Every receding footstep thuds like a nail.

    Clang.

    Clang.

    Against the metal stair case that leads to the door.

    ‘Welcome to the end.’

    Nailing him to his coffin.

    -

    He can move on.

    But his feet remain rooted to the dirt outside the bunker door; the home that was never really his.

    After thousands of years he can tell when something is broken... and yet, he’d stood in the glass, bleeding out for far too long.

    The moon shone brightly, the insects chirped and the world carried on once more… utterly oblivious to how close it had been to ending.

    Castiel walks away numbly yet all too raw. The earth may be fine but his world had just imploded.

    Summary

    Silent.
    The coffin is silent. 

    The ocean is silent, save for the constant hum of pressure, which is almost worse. 
    Dean keeps his eyes shut. He breathes, tells himself he's gotta get used to this, he's gotta breathe, he's gotta calm down. But still he trembles, because the concept of forever—it's only this now. 
    This prison. 

    Nobody's fault but his own. 

    Dean thought he could do this. But it's been barely a week and he's panicking. He's breathing, or at least he thinks he is, but no air is filling his lungs. He's just gasping uselessly, heart pounding too fast, mind scrubbed of everything except fear. Maybe there’s no air left at all.

    Dean's phone is dead now, though he'd conserved it for as long as he could. It's so dark and so small in here, too small, and he's trapped, trapped forever in here.

    Summary

    He could still save him. It’s what they did: they fixed things. But they were running out of time. Dean wished they could have more. They were supposed to go on a beach vacation together. Castiel would wear bumblebee-swimshorts and they’d be happy. If they could’ve had more time... maybe he could’ve said it to Castiel’s face then, instead.

    Summary

    The ocean.

    The wind blows harshly against his back, pushing him towards his destiny.

    What will Sam do when he finds out that Dean drugged him and bolted?

    He can’t just not call.

    Dean dials the number. Cass number.

    “Hello Dean.” He can practically hear Cass squint. “Where are you? The cell signal is substandard.”

    “Well.” He says brightly. “That’s the ocean for you.”

    “You went to the beach?” Cass voice is dry and unbelieving.

    “Cass.” He says, “I just called to say… goodbye.”

    “Wait!” Cass says urgently. “Where are you going Dean? Is it fishing? Because if it is, I can come with you. I’m quite capable of standing immobile with a stick.”

    Dean smiles. “Thanks for the offer Cass, but no.”

    Dean hears a loud sound then. Like a door slamming shut. The only place with a door that sounds like that… is the bunker.

    The bunker with poisoned Sam.

    “You’re at the bunker.” He whispers in horror.

    He almost drops the phone into the ocean.

    This was a mistake.

    Cass must have been tracking the call all this time. And Dean had babbled on and on and now Cass probably has his-

    “And you’re on Vágur. You always did pick the best places to die.”

    Summary

    "Ever since the Mark made Cas go crazy? Ever since I had to bury him in a Ma'lak box?" -Dean Winchester (15x09)

    ****

    There isn't major character death, but Castiel going into the Ma'Lak box is very similar to it, so be careful if that bothers you.
