“I’m going to kiss you now.”

Cas pauses, giving Dean a chance to back out, but Dean just licks his lips and waits.

Cas’s mouth is up against Dean’s for a couple seconds before Dean responds, and then it’s Cas that’s being kissed senseless, because kissing is definitely not something Dean does tentatively. Dean reaches up to cup Cas’s jaw in his hand, tilting his head for a better angle, mouth plush, tasting like whiskey.

Cas tries to remember what it was like the first time he kissed a man. All-encompassing, the world jerking off its axis, the feel of stubble under his fingers intense in a way it never really is with women, as much as he loves them.

Matchmaker Mary by waywardwings
Mary Campbell-Winchester is a mother, historian, and aspiring author.

She is also deaf, which is why it’s such a pleasant surprise when she walks into a small café and is served by a man who takes her order in sign language.

The two form an unconventional friendship, and when Mary learns that Cas is gay (and single), she takes it upon herself to play matchmaker for her son Dean; a lonely museum curator with a penchant for pie.

She knows the two of them would be perfect for each other, now it’s just a matter of making them see it, too.

What Happened In Vegas by Ltleflrt
Long time friends Dean and Castiel are road tripping from Chicago to San Diego for Sam and Eileen’s wedding, and a pitstop in Las Vegas turns into drunken love confessions and a surprise marriage. Turns out the pining has been mutual this whole time, but now they’re finally together and on cloud-fucking-nine. Until they remember that this trip isn’t supposed to be about them.

To avoid undermining Sam and Eileen’s important weekend, they decide to keep their new relationship status a secret. They’ll keep the heart eyes toned down and their hands to themselves, but the struggle is real.

I'll Cross the Sky for You by superhoney
Castiel thinks it sounds ridiculous: a spaceship that’s also an Earth-style coffeeshop? But upon his first visit to The Family Business, he quickly realizes that the owner, Dean Winchester, is incredibly handsome, the pastries are delicious, and the coffee is out of this world.

One visit leads to another, and before long, Castiel is completely won over by both the coffeeship and its owner. It’s hard to maintain a relationship when you’re constantly flying across the vastness of space, but for the sake of both his heart and his stomach, Castiel swears he and Dean will make it work.

No Righteous Path by jupiter_james
On his 40th birthday, Dean Winchester suddenly begins to worry that he may have lost his chance for a real mate. He's been so focused on his business as a 24-hour roofing and repairman, that he's never taken the time to date properly, or even make any lasting friendships outside of his family. Beginning in their late 30's, alphas and omegas start to lose their mating and bonding hormones, making it more difficult - and often impossible - to mate or bond with anyone past a certain age. But as a modern Alpha, Dean would be content with a companion, at least. Blood bonds aren't the be-all, end-all. However, after a late night emergency roofing repair call from Castiel Novak, Omega, Dean starts to hope. Yearn. The only hangup is that Castiel admits to being as old-fashioned as the books he teaches. Nervous to go against his religious upbringing by being with someone who he can't bond properly, as alphas and omegas are intended to do. But he can't deny his attraction to Dean, and despite his sensibilities, he thinks that, just maybe, he can change for the man he's falling in love with.

“I know what it means,” Dean says, letting out the breath he was holding.

“I haven’t been attracted to someone in so long, the distinction no longer seemed to be relevant.”

“Nothing can change the way I feel about you,” Dean says. “Nothing.”

Cas looks down at his hands. “Sometimes I think I may be attracted to you.”

“Your company?”

Castiel looks at Dean, his gaze steely. “You think because I’m an omega I can’t have a company?”


“Because if that is how you think, Mr Smith, I can find another place to do business with.”

"I was looking for a book," he said lamely, and Castiel rolled his eyes and began to turn away so he could put the books down.

"Of course. You are in a bookstore," Castiel said as he left the books on a nearby stool. "Do you also need it to open and have things printed on the pages, sir?"


"What?" Castiel asked, pointedly pushing his own glasses on his own nose on his own self.

"Name's Dean. Don't have to call me sir," he said, the grin returning. Castiel raised an eyebrow.

The Emilia K. Wadham library is located just outside the town of Stanford California, and it’s the only library in the area not owned by the University. So when Dean started coming in two months ago, he immediately attracted everyone’s attention, starting from the moment he parked his motorcycle outside. If Dean felt every library patron’s eyes on him when he walked in, he didn’t show it. Maybe he’d grown used to it. It was probably a combination between the skinny jeans, the piercings, and the tattoos that were visible even when Dean wore his black leather jacket.

angelus ex machina by aerialiste
The only feeling he really remembers is the thick pressure in his chest from rage, being furious at something that stops him, something holding him back and he doesn’t even know what but he hates it, he wants it to let him go—he throws back his head, roaring, as it speaks directly into his ear, softly but forcefully: it's over, Dean, it's over—

He knows now those were Cas’s arms around him, secure, viselike, too powerful to escape. Always gripping him tight, even when he doesn’t want to be raised. Always coming, even when he hasn't called. Always saving him, even when he doesn’t think he deserves—

Dean likes everything about what he’s able to do to Cas. He wants to find out what else. He blinks, and then blurts out:

“Cas, I’d rather have you, dude or not.”

While he trains in a tiny unheated studio, he meets Dean Winchester who has come to fix the heater. They build an unlikely friendship as Cas trains for the production. Dean doesn't understand the first thing about ballet, but he teaches Castiel about friendship and family, and Castiel has never danced so well as when he performs for Dean.

For a little over a decade, he's learned to live with the curse, and has even found it useful in some cases, but he sure would be happier without it.

When he meets a witch named Castiel, he's offered a deal. Instead of assuming all witches are bad, Dean can spend a season getting to know him. If at the end of the season, Dean still thinks he's evil Castiel will send him away with his memory wiped of the whole experience. But if he learns that Castiel is not the monster Dean assumes he is, he'll lift Dean's curse.

It's an offer Dean can't bring himself to pass up."

"Dean turns around and Castiel is picking through the jars, turning them over carefully to read the labels, totally engrossed. Dean watches him.

"Is there," Dean says, "uh, anything in there you like?" Castiel looks up at him and then back at the apples, sitting in a basket on the counter in their golden skins, ripe and pretty. Castiel smiles up at Dean.

"I don’t know yet," he says."

Becket's Coffee by allyarra
"Two weeks into the first semester of her freshman year of college and Mako knows exactly where she will be spending just about every minute of her free time. The little coffee shop around the corner from the building she’s living in has the best caramel machiatos that she’s ever tasted (and considering they’re her secret weakness, she’s had quite a few of them). It doesn’t hurt that the two brothers who run the place are extremely easy on the eyes or that they consider her a regular by the fourth time she sets up shop there, already elbows deep in work."

Shut Up (Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is) by kototyph
Dean's done some pretty stupid things, but getting drunk-hitched in Vegas to a colleague he barely knows might just take the cake. His surprise husband, Castiel, is a little weird but likable despite that, and Dean figures they'll go back to Boston, get a quiet annulment, and go their separate ways. Six weeks later, he's still married to one of the strangest, most genuine and definitely most dangerously lov-- likable guys he's ever known. Dean doesn't know why or really even how it's happening, but it's getting harder and harder to remember that he has divorce papers to file.

Angel's Wild by LimonadeGaby, riseofthefallenone
But that's the whole reason he's here, isn't it? He's not out here hunting Humans. He's not even hunting deer, or bears, or anything else that featured in Bambi. He's out here, freezing his nuts off every night, because he's hunting Angels.

Sometimes Dean wishes that Angels were like how they're described in the Bible. How people from time too old for him to care much about thought Angels were messengers and warriors of God, protectors of Humans. He knows that how they're really described in the Bible is actually pretty terrifying, but at least they were told by God that they're supposed to love Humans, right?

That's a thousand times better than what Angels really turned out to be.

new testament [just more of the same 'verse] by outpastthemoat
When the dust settles, there's still Dean, and there's still Sam, and there's a tired man in a well-worn coat, all staring blankly at each other.

They're wondering what the hell to do next.

Heaven's boarded up their windows, purgatory's locked up for good, and hell's gate has been slammed shut and sealed up tight. And yeah, there are still monsters, still ghosts, even demons still walking the earth, but when Dean sticks Ruby's knife in their guts, they head back home and they stay put.

And life goes on.
