    Summary

    “The natural environment of the human soul is a human body,” Cas says. “Humans have yet to meet a foreign substrate that they don’t immediately attempt to colonize. My form in Hell was not an exception.” Then he shuts his mouth very deliberately and gestures back to Dean like his mic is going live in three, two.

    “Or the bit where my soul gave you some kind of STD?” Dean finishes.

    “It was a poor analogy. I apologize.”

    “So what’s a better one?”

    Castiel drums his fingers for a second. “It’s more like…the way a parasitic jewel wasp injects a cockroach with venom, and transforms it into a willing host for wasp larvae.”

    “Holy shit are you ever bad at this,” Dean says, with that signature brand of fond horror he special-orders just for Castiel, Angel of the Gourd.

    Summary

    AU in which the apocalypse and angels and demons never happen, and Sam and Jess and Dean live together in a suburban lifestyle -- and then suddenly, nothing is alternate universe at all. Told from Sam's POV. Dean is compelled to tend a dead rose garden, if only Dean could remember why; and remember why it is so important.

    Summary

    Dean wasn’t the type of person who did this kind of thing. He just wasn’t. GISH?? Ugh. The whole thing was just further proof that Dean would do anything his brother wanted him to do. Why else would he be in a Stormtrooper costume, calling up his ex-girlfriend for a private yoga class? Had he been stuck in a rut that long? Given that he’d been pining for the same freakin’ guy, his professor and coworker no less, for three long years… maybe.

    Cas was definitely the type of person who did this kind of thing, not that many people knew that. He was one of the most well-respected professors at KSU. His students and coworkers didn’t need to know that he was captain of a GISH team, or that he knitted kinky accessories and made art with his online friends. His TA certainly didn’t need to know either. Just professionalism, of course. Nothing at all to do with the failed attempt at a relationship, three years of pining, and frequent inappropriate daydreams.

    A two-person love triangle with online friendships, costumes, and a lot of glitter.

    Summary

    Dean had dreamed of Castiel climbing into his bed, on more than one occasion.

    Of course, in Dean's dreams, Castiel had been awake...

    Summary

    Elijah’s been a bartender for over a decade, now. He’s seen people at their best and worst and everywhere in between. Usually, he can eyeball folks the second they walk in and tell what they need: a stiff drink, a shoulder to cry on, an open ear. Or maybe they just want to sit quietly in the corner nursing a single beer as the hours pass so they don’t have to be alone.

    Dean Winchester’s not one of those guys. He swaggers in near on once a week, plops himself at the bar and orders a double shot of whiskey. Sometimes he goes for a boilermaker. “Beer and whiskey are already awesome on their own,” he tells Elijah. “Figures they’d be friggin’ awesome together, right?”
