    Summary

    “The fuck…?” he grumbles to himself, pulling the carafe of hot coffee out of its holder with his right hand and steadying his mug on the counter with his left. He looks down into the mug and yelps, surprised to see something white and wriggling at the bottom of his cup.

    “What the fuck!” he yells, spilling hot coffee all over the counter, when the wriggling shape resolves itself into something resembling a miniscule white snake.

    With wings.

    There was… there was a goddamn dragon is his fucking coffee cup.

    Summary

    War photojournalist Castiel Novak has spent his career reporting from the front lines, chasing one disaster after another. World-weary and disillusioned, he doesn't know a life outside of chaos and turmoil, impervious to feeling much of anything. A chance encounter introduces him to Dean Winchester, a police officer trying his best to lead a normal life post-military. The two men are quick to bond over their shared struggles, forming a strong friendship that helps Castiel remember there is a myriad of emotions for him to experience. But Castiel has spent most of his life observing rather than living, and he’s not certain he can stop running.

    Notes to self:
    Absolutely excellent "Emotional Hurt/Comfort" with powerful insight into the depths of the trauma so many of our veterans/soldiers and associated journalists alike unfortunately must cope with on a daily basis. Research into the accuracy of the issues portrayed was clearly evident and thoroughly appreciated because of the respect these sufferers clearly deserve. Although the mental health problems that can result from the impact of war are (vaguely) known of by the general public, stories such as this are essential for empathy and further education, as so much of that same general population have no reference point as to how to relate so understanding can be achieved. Dean was an absolute sweetheart and Castiel's personality in this fic are both exactly how I could see canon Dean and Cas in a canon "other" world like this too!

    Kudos!!!

    Summary

    Dean dies. Then, an angel yanks him out of Hell on a technicality; Dean’s death is slated for years in the future, and someone took him ahead of time. Teaming up with Castiel might not be the smartest decision he’s ever made, but together, they must work to figure out who did this to him, and why.

    Falling in love wasn’t part of the plan, though.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    One of my favorite fic writers!

    This was EXCELLENT - I love how Dean and Cas instantly gravitated towards each other and how it didn't feel to me like there were any awkward "personal space" moments because they both were so OK with being close. Dean actually dealing with feelings for the most part and then Cas' emotion hurt/comfort when it's too much made any angst actually draw me in more because their love was so meaningful (and the resulting cuddles were so sweet). The angels were actually really cool too and it was refreshing seeing an AU where they were actually really supportive of Cas becoming so attached to Dean (like holy crap, I actually liked Naomi). And then Michael and Lucifer not being interested in an Apocalypse? Yes! Our boys also end up being total BAMFs and the "Happily Ever After" that we're left with made me want to read so much more about their happy future together because they really, really were incredibly cute together.

    Sorry for so many Bookmarker's Tags and Notes too! I do this to alot of my Bookmarks because sometimes I get bored and like to filter random things I haven't read in a while...

    Summary

    “Nothing human can exist in the Empty,” Jack replied, shaking his head. “It would just - spit you back out, and probably kill you in the process.”

    “Then -” Dean pulled in a deep breath. Made his choice. “Then make me not human.”

    Notes to Self (SPOILERS):

    Dean has all 3 wings in this fic...for a little bit ; )

    This ended up being an absolutely fantastic Season 15 fix-it. I mean, Dean's transformation, the author's creative idea of how Castiel's rescue could happen, Jack not just disappearing, Sam reuniting with and marrying Eileen, Dean's chance at showing a seriously sweet reciprocation of Castiel's love confession (and actually having the chance to LIVE the normal, happy and fulfilling life they truly deserved at the end), no smut = no problem, the wedding, the guarantee of a "Happily Ever After" for everyone...
