Eternally single professor Castiel is quiet, nerdy, and keeps to his research. The one indulgence that he allows himself is spending hours on YouTube bingeing the vlogs of a handsome, reckless archaeologist. Hunter styles himself as a bit of an Indiana Jones type, and he reminds Castiel of the adventurous, free person he longs to be. Plus, he’s super hot.
Imagine Castiel’s surprise when he meets the new archaeology professor at the Humanities potluck.
This is his chance—he is finally in the same room as Dean “Hunter” Winchester!
Unfortunately, the best interaction shy, awkward Castiel can manage is to steal his new colleague’s Tupperware.

After Dean cheats death (again) on a hunt gone wrong, he finds himself talking to Castiel once in a while, because Cas's sacrifice is an unhealed wound. He never expects an answer to his prayers...but there are new rules to this old game, and the Winchesters are overdue for a miracle.
It's very sad that unfortunately there was never a SPN finale and that Season 15 episode 19 was the last one that aired, but the beauty of that is, it left so much open for the future of Sam and Dean, alive, doing things like they've always done--screwing destiny right in the face and getting back their loved ones and found family at any cost.
Before he can make the lunge to the corridor, Cas, in all his glory, wrapped in his trench coat, tie and all the things Dean can stare at for hours, rounds the corner and looks up at him.
He’s holding a plate topped with a simple PB&J sandwich with the crusts cut away.
Dean freezes and he thinks, 'maybe I did die'
But then Cas smiles bashfully and churns out a; “I missed the taste of PB&J”
Dean doesn't die in the barn, Cas can enjoy the taste of PB&J again, and there's a whole bonus chapter of happiness and hunting because why not.
