999 Days From Now - TC (thecollective) - Supernatural [Archive of Our Own]
How long until he had to tell Sam? How long until the pain became so constant that he wished the process would speed up? How long until he couldn't take care of himself? How long?

"Two to five years. Each case is different." The words should have sounded stoic and rehearsed, but the gravel of the doctor's voice rattled, and it was clear to Dean that he wasn't the only one in the room who wished he could buck up and run. But where could he run to? He couldn't tell Sam, not yet, not if he couldn't even admit it to himself. And god, the look on Sam's face when he found out just might kill Dean then and there. No, there would be no telling Sam. Not yet, not until he had to. He didn't know what to say.

What was he supposed to do in a situation like this? Was he supposed to cry? Was he supposed to blame a god he didn't believe existed or pray for a miracle? Was he supposed to feel this numb about the whole thing? Instead he asked, "How did you know I'd understand the fuel pump diagram?"

Satin and Sawdust - Ltleflrt - Supernatural [Archive of Our Own]
When Castiel moves out of Jimmy's house and into his own place for the first time, he saves money on buying a home by investing in a Fixer-Upper. He knows nothing about how to fix the many problems the house has, but he figures he's smart enough to figure it out. Unfortunately it's not too long before he learns that he's way in over his head.

Thankfully his new neighbor Dean is a handyman, and agrees to help him out. He knows Dean has a bit of a crush on him, but he's not taking advantage of it, really. Dean's a great guy, and quickly becomes a good friend.

But a flash of satin under Dean's toolbelt changes everything.

Let This Remain - VioletHaze - Supernatural [Archive of Our Own]
Dean Winchester dropped his little brother Sam off for his freshman year of college, then dropped out of his life completely. Now, nearly a year later, Dean's gotten himself together and is back in Lawrence to make things right with his brother. As he works to build his life in Kansas, Dean finds himself repeatedly crossing paths with Castiel Milton. Maybe the universe is trying to tell him something at a time when he's actually ready to listen.

The Airmail Experience - aileenrose - Supernatural [Archive of Our Own]
Dean leans against the jamb of the door and watches, bemused, as letters sprout out of the blue. It takes a while; he admires the plane’s dogged persistence. At least there’s little wind today. Although some of the smoke smudges in the curves, like ink touched before dry, the end result is fully legible, if a little puzzling.


First Dean thought someone was trying to mess with him. Now he's pretty sure someone's writing love letters to him over the Topeka skyline.

The Return Policy - aileenrose - Supernatural [Archive of Our Own]
Most of his visitors are academics. They come from universities all over the nation, sometimes beyond. Others write books. The man in the Reading Room today is neither. He’s a tall, irritated man with a federal badge.

The federal agent's partner is usually the one who does the research. And even though Cas doesn't think this man is a real federal agent, he's happy to help where he can.

Dreameater - beastofthesky - Supernatural [Archive of Our Own]
Sam, Dean, and Cas are doing the usual – saving people, hunting things, keeping other monsters in check – when it slowly becomes more and more evident that something is causing monsters to lose control. In trying to figure out what's happening, they realize that this is much, much bigger than they originally thought.
Aka the one where Sam's a vampire, Dean's a werewolf and Cas is a djinn.

Ergative/Absolutive - beastofthesky - Supernatural [Archive of Our Own]
He really shouldn’t be thinking thoughts like this about his best friend who literally just broke up with his girlfriend, but he knows he’ll blame it on sleepiness in the morning. He always does.
They’d both registered for the same Intro to Modern Astronomy class and, to Castiel, he’d just been another kid in a lecture hall.

His chosen seat in any class is always as far back as possible; Dean had slipped into the room late one day, dripping slightly, and dropped his soggy ass into the seat right next to Cas's. Even though there'd been plenty of other empty seats.

“Still raining, I take it,” he'd muttered drily as the teacher raised a reproaching eyebrow at the topmost tier of seats.

Dean had made some kind of stupid pop culture reference – Cas can’t for the life of him remember what it had been – and the next class, Cas made a point to sit next to him again. There had been a comfortable sort of silent camaraderie, at first, and then they'd started actually talking during the weekly middle-of-the-night labs (it was astronomy, after all) and somehow in the middle of being classmates and lab partners and studying together and ordering pizza, they’d become inseparable.

An Exercise In 'Worthless' - beastofthesky - Supernatural [Archive of Our Own]
"I mean, you’re–” He gestures at Cas, in his neat oxford shirt and nice pants. “–and I’m a high school dropout who tattoos for a living.”

Wherein Dean makes a hefty living as a tattoo artist who owns the space next to Gabriel's cafe. Sam attends the local university. When Gabe's cousin comes to live with him while starting grad school at Sam's university, Dean thinks for sure that all his negative karma's coming to bite him in the ass because Cas clearly has a thing for Sam. No one would ever choose him over Sam. That's just logic.

Asunder - rageprufrock - Supernatural [Archive of Our Own]
Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder. (Matthew 19:6)
God damn Lori, Dean thinks, and mutters, "If you really wanted to help, you'd come to the wedding and protect me from everybody else — and I do not have manpain."

Cas blinks at him. "Okay," he says. "Where is it?"

"Did I not just say I don't have manpain?" Dean demands.

Cas actually rolls his eyes. "I meant the wedding, Dean."

"Santa Barbara," Dean says stupidly. "What?"

Cas nods, rising to his feet and pushing the last dish of pie — cherry seeping from the sugar-frosted crust — in Dean's direction. "I'll go tell my supervisor to move my shifts around," he says, and vanishes.

"What?" Dean asks, mostly himself, and because he's given up on ever understanding Castiel, ever, he consoles himself with the pie and tries not to think about it.

Dean realizes that he should have course-corrected far, far too late for it, which is to say, when he gets home that night and Castiel calls to ask what flight Dean's going out on.

straight from the heart - mwestbelle - Captain America (Movies) [Archive of Our Own]
Bucky is a chef, and this "American Foodie" is ruining his life.
"He said my food lacked 'heart.'" Bucky uses his thumb to scroll back to the top of the page and hits the About link again. There's no photo or identifying information; he's old-school anonymous, this guy, for all that he's a blogger. And people trust his opinion. There are no ads on the site, he doesn't take sponsorships or accept comped anything. It's just him and the food, pure and simple, and it's driving Bucky crazy. "What does that even mean?"

"It means he's an amateur. Not worth the energy." Natasha pushes a binder across the counter toward him. "Put your energy into your work. You should update the menu."

Single Male Seeking Same - pocketfullof
Aka the Kissing Jessica Stein AU.
Steve had a mad glint in his eye, one that Jensen knew all too well and usually ended with him in a jail cell at four AM sitting next to men with I heart my mom tattoos on large, bulky biceps. "Classified ads."

"Uh, no." Jensen took a long sip from his coffee. It was black and hot, and he burned his tongue. "Fuck."

"Just try it," Steve insisted. He smiled, eyebrows raised a little cockily, and grabbed a free copy of City Beat on their way out the door.

Once beside Jensen's truck, Steve set his coffee on the cab and flipped through the paper. The city was just blossoming to life around them. Cars swished by, sunlight bouncing off gleaming paint, and besuited men and women strode along quickly on their way to work. It was May in Texas, which meant that even at this early hour, the sun baked everything it touched.

"Dude, I gotta get to work," Jensen complained, eyeing his watch.

"This'll take just a second. Oh! Here we go, a quote – "

"I'm really not that desperate," Jensen said into his coffee, debating whether or not he wanted to risk another sip.

" The only people for me are the mad ones," Steve read, ignoring him, "the ones who are mad to live…" Steve snorted. "What is this crap?"

"Kerouac," Jensen said quickly. Steve glanced at him, eyebrows raised. "Or…I don't know. I might be wrong," Jensen backtracked, scratching the back of his neck.

"I forgot you used to have a hard on for that guy." Steve went back to reading the ad. "Nope. This is a dude seeking another guy."

Jensen ran his tongue along his top row of teeth. "I gotta go, man."

Orpheus - sysrae - Supernatural [Archive of Our Own]
The club is Dante's, the room is the Cage, and Dean is only there because he hates himself. He's buzzdrunk from the shots he had at the upstairs bar, and dizzy from the heat. Ugly music thumps his bones, the juddering bassline overlaid with exactly the sort of discordant techno-trash he otherwise wouldn't stomach in a fit. The Cage smells of sweat, sex and spilled beer, the tight space full of half- and near-naked bodies gyrating against each other and – shit, is that guy actually naked? He is, and the two men sandwiching him on the dancefloor look pretty pleased about it. Dean, in his jeans and tee, is practically overdressed, and as he stands there, equal parts aroused and ashamed, he has a brief moment of clarity. Get out. Go home. Stop punishing yourself.

Almost, he does. But through the din and crush, he suddenly feels eyes on him, and when he finds their owner, he remembers why he came.
'I –' He shuts his eyes, opens them again. He's overwhelmed, and something in him cracks. 'What is this? What do you want from me?'

Cas blinks at him, confused. 'I don't understand.'

Dean is shaking, and not just from cold. 'It's just, if there's something else, if you want to h-hurt me, if this a trick, I need to know now, I need to know what you want –'

'Dean.' Cas pulls away from him, horror in his voice. 'I'm not going to hurt you. God, I would never – why would you even ask that?' He sits up, turning on a bedside light, and in the sudden glow, his face is stiff with shock.

Dean curls up around his knees, looking at Cas in total incomprehension. 'You were in the Cage,' he says, stating the obvious. 'At Dante's. You said you'd been there before.'


'So? ' Dean says, incredulous. 'So it's fucking Dante's, is what! How can you go there and not know what that means?'

Good Call - sysrae - Supernatural [Archive of Our Own]
The phone buzzes, this time with a text message. Dean glares at it. Chews. Swallows. Considers taking another bite before picking up, just out of sheer contrary spite, but doesn't, on the offchance that it's Sam.

He taps the new message open, reads it twice, and freezes.

'You've always been a good brother. This isn't your fault. I'm so sorry.'
'I'm here,' says Cas. 'I'm, ah.' He takes a shaky breath. 'I'm on the roof of the Art Centre.'

Dean's chest tightens sharply. 'Come down,' he says, voice hoarse. Lunch completely forgotten, he gets up and starts to move. 'I'm walking there now, I'll meet you out front. I'm gonna stay on the line with you, but just – just come down, Cas, okay?'

'Okay,' says Cas, softly. And then, after a moment, 'Dean?'


'What do you look like?'

It's such a shy question, Dean laughs in pure relief.

All I Want Is You - sysrae - Supernatural [Archive of Our Own]
Very slowly, Dean turns. 'How'd you know I was here about a room?'

'Power of deduction,' says Castiel, leaning against the doorway. 'I mean, you're not after pot, and I'm pretty sure we haven't slept together.' He grins wolfishly, gaze sliding over Dean's body. 'You, I'd remember.'

Dean's been hit on by guys before, but never so blatantly, let alone by a semi-naked dude in a kimono. A hot blush warms his cheeks, and he covers his shock with cockiness, tilting his head and grinning. 'Sorry to disappoint you, Cas, but I don't swing that way.'

Castiel throws back his head and laughs. 'And you want to live here? What, did your friends put you up to this?'

'Actually, yeah.' Dean raises an eyebrow. 'Is that a problem for you?'
