    Summary

    It's not like Castiel expected to be sent back to 2001 when the Empty said it would send him back. Sure, 19 years in the past with the man he confessed his love to will end great. Right? They can do this.

     

     

    Tile inspiration (because everyone needs to hear this song I love it so much): Please Excuse This Funk Up by Infectious Grooves

    Edit: 2003 was changed to 2001 for plot and timeline reasons. I am such an idiot and I need sleep.

    Summary

    When hunting for the Leviathan blossom, Castiel gets taken. Tired, desperate and wanting to tell him all the things left unsaid before it’s too late, Dean prays to him. But he realises... standing there, in the grey hellish landscape, the portal home flickering just beside them with seconds left on the timer, they already were too late.

    Running himself ragged fuelled solely by caffeine, whisky, and that trademark Winchester determination, he will find a way to stop Chuck and to save Cas. However, this isn't the blaze of glory Dean had always envisioned going out in. But, deep down, he would go out swinging to save a loved one. Those bright shining penetrating tear-soaked eyes are the last thing he sees before his vision is marred, the desperate plea of his name dampened by the black ooze filling his eardrums as the essence of the Empty wraps around him and pulls him pulled from existence into the dark.

    All because of that simple prayer, the ending Chuck had always planned was rewritten.

    With a fallen angel purged of happiness, a brother in mourning and a Nephilim-shaped timebomb the only ones left to Carry On on this desolate planet… What happens when tomorrow comes?

    Summary

    He finds himself in a flattened valley, kneeling to the ground so that he can trace his fingertips along the skeletal dust of what was once asphalt. The roads in all their arterial spray have melted into the dirt. He presses his hand, flat, against the ground, and he shuts his eyes as if he could invoke the god of the interstates just by longing for him.


    Everything returns, yet he remains.

    Summary

    Dean stares at Castiel as he speaks, hearing but not listening to his speech, and his chest feels like it's on fire. He loves him. He loves him. And it's a goodbye and that's not good enough.

    So he feels something warm and soft and light around his soul, and he pulls and clings to the angel for which he's willing to give his heart and life.

    Because if they go down, they go down together.
    ----------------
    OR yet another Time-Travel Fix It Fic because the confession scene and the ending of SPN sucked and I'm taking my feelings out on this. Also, my hatred of John Winchester and the shit he put the boys through. This is NOT a John-friendly fic, at all.

    Summary

    It's been who knows how many weeks or months or years since Dean Winchester has gone to Heaven. Who the hell knows, even with the new boss, time is funky. So is the mojo that's making things appear and/or get added.

    Who cares, though. Dean is tired of it. Of all of it.

    He's showed up and yeah, maybe he'll see some people he wants to see, except he's not seein' everyone he wants to see. But that's not the point, he tells himself; it doesn't matter - the point is he's friggin tired of this and he wants OUT.

    But he's always been pretty good at pushing things away, not to mention adept at lying to himself.

    (Or Dean Winchester would not -and does not- accept dying and going to Heaven, so this is him making every attempt at busting out and getting back down to life on Earth.

    He thought he was all right with going out like this, or at least always knew he would. But he isn't.)

    Summary

    Six months. 

    Six months on the day, and Dean couldn't do it anymore.

    He hadn't told anyone. Not even Sam.

    Dean wished it didn't have to be this way, wished he didn't have to do this.

    He wished this would be enough. His family surrounding him, peaceful and happy. He wished they were enough.

    Forgive me.

    With a last deep breath, Dean straightened, blinked the tears from his eyes.

    And went.

    Summary

    Dean felt the ache in his chest consume him and he gave a broken nod, dropping his eyes to the floor so she wouldn’t see the tears trying to build there.

    Amara lowered her hand to hover above his chest. “There isn’t anyone there you need to bring back, Dean.”

    Dean’s head snapped up and his eyes tightened in defiance of those words. “Yes, there is,” he bit out. “And if you can’t help me, I’ll find another way to break in.”

    Summary

    "Did you like the ending I wrote for your favorite angel?"
    *
    What if Chuck was the in-universe embodiment of the producers of the show, constantly keeping Dean and Cas from saying and doing what they want and keeping them in a state of pining limbo for years? What if Chuck orchestrated all the awful things that happened and kept them apart for years and years?
    OR
    Chuck is the in-universe reason for all the queerbaiting and once he's gone, there's nothing stopping Dean and Cas from finally being together. Well, except the fact that Dean needs to get Cas out of the Empty first.
