canonverse - Cas and Dean retire and raise baby Jack
you’re fooling yourself is the main story, I will add oneshots and other stories as i write them.
Dean Winchester and Castiel retire from hunting to raise baby Jack. Dean struggles to allow himself the things he truly wants.
Jack is two, Castiel and Dean are idiots, and Sam's gotta solve everyone's problems.
- Part 1 of that's their son! (baby jack verse)
After Lucifer kills Castiel, Dean decides to trust in the one thing Cas believed in; Jack. He takes it upon himself to take care of the new born, not even realizing the true power Jack possesses.
A 26-year-old Dean is transported to 2021 and confronted with the unfathomable - a future where he is happy, safe, and loved.
“Aren’t you gunna say it?” he asks tentatively, as if he’s crazy for picking up on the obvious.
“Yeah, you’re me. Past me, anyway,” the other Dean replies. “I wanna know from when.”
“What are you talking about?”
“Time travel,” the older Dean states as if it’s so obvious and ordinary. “It happens.”
“To who? Marty McFly?”
Sam Winchester kills his father.
It’s an ugly, complicated thing, but he does it.
And honestly, he doesn’t even hesitate that much.
The demon is wearing his father, and the demon is killing Dean; it’s a choice between killing his father and letting the man who raised him die.
He pulls the trigger. All he feels is relief.
