northernsparrow: Flight
Sequel to Forgotten, featuring Dean's dumb ass eventually figuring out he's in love after several hundred thousand words, even more Cas whump, and the author's delightfully intricate angel wing headcanon.

northernsparrow: Forgotten
Sam and Dean are working a case in Wyoming, but are distracted by news of a dangerous angel called "Castiel" who they can't remember ever having heard of before. The name seems a little bit familiar, but neither of the boys is sure why.

AU from mid-S9. Excellent casefile that blossoms into some cool epic worldbuilding (continuing in the sequel), with heaping helpings of whump and TFW feels, and a perfectly agonizing amnesia mystery.

Annie D: Not Part of the Plan
Castiel's spent most of his adult life keeping his head down and staying out of trouble. This is a deliberate choice on his part, because as a cousin of the King, he'd rather stay unimportant and forgotten. This changes abruptly when King Michael decides that he has a better use for Castiel: he is to be wed to a noble member of the neighboring Republic, as part of an agreement between their two nations. Castiel knows he has to obey, but that doesn't mean he won't rebel in what small ways he can. Unexpectedly, his actions end up having far-reaching consequences.

In which Cas has a one night stand with Dean to lose his virginity before his arranged marriage, then discovers he's engaged to Sam (oops), then Sam runs away so Cas marries Dean to avoid a scandal... and THEN things get complicated! Gorgeous slow burn romance with plenty of plot and even more tropes.

komodobits: Cuckoo And Nest
For a long time, Castiel thought that every earthly possession other than the immediately necessary was excess to requirement. But Dean – Dean who named his car, who keeps a photograph of his mother in his wallet, some thirty-plus years after her death, who still has the crumpled ‘Do Not Disturb’ sign with a sleeping pelican emblazoned on it from the Microtel outside of Roanoke where he first kissed Castiel, clumsy and unsure, under the unsteady fluorescence of an exhausted bathroom bulb – is sentimental.

It puzzles Castiel, where Dean draws the line between what is meaningful and what it is worthless.

orange_crushed: Fearson's floating cigarette
"That son of a bitch," Dean says. He strangles the handful of french fries he’s been holding, and one by one their warm, helpless, potato-y insides crumble over the tops of his fingers. He feels a brief burst of irrational, almost homicidal rage. "That floppy bow-tie wearing son of a bitch.” Dean is gonna kill Jimmy Wonderman. He’s gonna shove a never-ending string of scarves down his throat. He’s gonna make him eat balloon animals until he floats off into space.

So the summary for this stage magicians AU is misleading as hell - the antagonism lasts for about 20 seconds against Dean's hearteyes, and it's mostly a really tender, fluffy romance.

When no good deed goes unpunished, Dean ends up sentenced to community service for physically defending another Omega at his job. That is, at his former job. It's all a steaming pile of shit, and that's exactly what he has to clean up at the joint animal shelter and clinic he's been assigned to.

With a face full of allergies and a horrific mood, all Dean has to do is get through six weeks of this sinus-assaulting torture. That's not so easy with a smartass Alpha receptionist, but at least the weird Beta vet might just end up being kinda cool.

Under the cover of a masquerade ball, Castiel has five nights to recover the key to his people's freedom. The world has changed greatly in the six centuries since their banishment into the void, but the task isn't impossible. Unfortunately for Castiel, this is going to involve talking to people - especially the Knight Prince who has taken an interest in Castiel and his "costume" wings.

For a love story that kicks off over five nights, this sure has the *feeling* of a slow burn. Fantastic, creative, and plotty Cinderella AU.

splinter: Guarded
Max dreams about hands. This is a familiar nightmare: being held and trapped by many grasping fingers. It’s suffocating, as if each touch on his skin was smothering. He wakes in panic from those dreams, fear of contact tangled up with blood and the accusing faces of the dead.

Very rarely, he has a different kind of dream. Sprog holding his hand, or tugging at Max’s trouser leg as if he could climb up him, smiling when he’s lifted and held. Jessie’s hands, ruffling his hair or pinching his bum, precise and steady when she played her saxophone or signed. He dreams of her fingers, stroking idly down his arm, cupping his face or working at knotted muscles in his back.

Gorgeous character study about touch-starvation, with awkward cuddling. *heartclutch*

They’ve been teasing each other all afternoon.

It had started with looks: her gaze catching his as she bent low into the tangle of an engine, holding just long enough to see him flush before going on with her work. It had only escalated from there, as the garage emptied out in the limpid heat of late afternoon: her fingers trailing under his shirt along the waistband of his pants, his hot breath on her neck as he leaned in closer than was strictly necessary to lend a hand on a stubborn bolt, a silent guerrilla war of blistering touches in which both of them were too stubborn to admit defeat.

wintersoldierfell: painting Bucky's arm
A girl gets on the bus and pauses at the front to rummage in her purse for a token. She’s got brightly colored clips in her hair, a denim vest studded with shining buttons, and short shorts that reveal a muscular brown thigh and calf. But that’s not why Bucky suddenly finds himself staring.

He’s looking at the other leg.

The bottom section looks like a piston, one thin metal bar sliding into a mechanism whose workings seem to be mostly hidden where the prosthetic disappears into the girl’s boot. The top is larger, and above the knee joint, there’s a large cylindrical casing almost the volume of the girl’s other thigh. The casing is painted, covered entirely with an astonishingly vivid range of blues, violets, turquoises, sea-greens, creams, and golds. Somewhere in the back of his mind, his memory spits out the name Claude Monet, and water lilies, and an image of a blond-haired boy standing beside him, mouth open in wonder.

consumptive_sphinx: and we'll figure it out
Everyone is born with their soulmate's name written on their skin, somewhere.

A soulmate is not necessarily a romantic bond — it could be your truest friend, your closest comrade, or your deepest enemy — and you don't necessarily have just one. But whoever they are, your world will not be separate from their world; your life cannot be disentangled from their life. Aviators almost always have the names of their dragons.

Laurence has two names. Neither of them are in a script he can read.

unpretty: Empty Graves
Time travelers who plan to kill Superman never account for Martha Kent in their plans. She may not be the World's Finest, but she's a mother with a shotgun, and all told that might be scarier.

Poignant and blackly funny and full of badass parenting. I adore this version of Martha.
