    Summary

    Freedom is just one adjustment after the next.

    ~~~

    Cas hums again. "I think you already have. It's been months since everything settled. All that's left to do is...get used to it, and perhaps—" His voice stalls out, uncharacteristically, and his gaze roams Dean's face with intensity. When he speaks next, his tone is a little raw. "Perhaps what one does with peace is...whatever they want."

    "What if I don't even know what that is?" Dean grumbles, arching an eyebrow in challenge. "'Cause I know damn well you don't just mean good food and a good bed and time in Baby, not simple wants like that. You mean—ya know, the big things, the wants we didn't get to have before."

    "Yes," Cas agrees. "If you're not sure, figure it out."

    "Easier said than done."

    Summary

    Dean started working at a local auto repair shop in Lebanon, Kansas about a year ago. His coworkers don't know much about him. Except that he has a wife. Or maybe he doesn't. But he has a kid. Who is either a toddler or a high schooler. Who is either named Jack or Sammy. He also might have a best friend named Cas, but that also might be his wife.

    Truth is nobody knows what to make of Dean.

    --
    In universe, where nobody dies and Cas and Dean get domestic and Dean doesn't realize the mental hoola-hoops he's causing his coworkers to work through.

    Summary

    Coda to 12.01 Keep Calm and Carry On.

    Mary always thought you were supposed to be able to tell. That you could just look at someone and know they were – you know. One of that sort. It’s not supposed to happen to her son.

    Summary

    He remembers the rules. The same rules set by the most beautiful drag queen in all of Alabama, spoken to him while he hid his tear-stained face, cowering on the grimy floor of a rest station bathroom: don’t talk; don’t ask for money, because most of the time, they won’t pay him anyway; don’t cry; don’t let them kiss him; and most importantly, don’t get attached.

    For the first time in two decades, Dean breaks the cardinal rule—and opens his mouth. “I’m too old for this.”

    Summary

    Cas only knows how to love Dean Winchester from afar.

    So when Dean enters Heaven, far too soon on his human timeline and tragically quickly on a celestial one, Cas does what he does best. He watches over him, catering to Dean's every need, staying out of sight.

    In between those moments with Dean, though, he attends to his other duties. He heals Claire after a bad hunt. He negotiates for souls with Rowena. He drives Sam to Eileen's. But through it all, Dean never strays far from his mind, and it's turning into a big problem.
