    Summary

    It’s with a hesitant grip that Castiel raises his bow again. He knows rather obviously that he’s fully dressed, but he feels naked when he starts playing for the second time. Expression of any type is terrifying in that way, he supposes. Look at me, it says, and see what I am telling you without telling you. The lonely melody creeps from his fingers again.

    He finds himself rocking back and forth on the balls of his feet with each broad movement. As though he’s trying to play the violin with his whole body instead of just his hands. It's a strange feeling. I won’t cry, but maybe you could cry for me.

    “Cas,” Dean interrupts abruptly between the time that Castiel picks his bow up to end one note and to start the next. “Are you okay?”

    or the one where castiel is reunited with his love of fiddle playing and dean wants to be there for him when things get hard

    Summary

    Dean’s expression is dubious where he cocks up one eyebrow. “Cas, this isn’t- There’s nothing I can do about it, okay?” The walls of him, the barb of him that had been there when Castiel stepped into the bathroom, has been reduced to nothing. In these sorts of moments, Dean willingly shows his hurt. And maybe- maybe he will let Castiel help after all. “It’s just… in my head.”

    “There’s nothing you can do about it.”

    Dean blinks at him, startled.

    “Like I said, there’s something I could try.”

    Looking down to his hands, then back up to Castiel, Dean seems to hesitate. “And it’ll- it’s not just more soap is it?”

    “No, Dean,” the beginnings of something fond make the corners of Castiel’s lips twitch, “it’s not more soap.”

    or the one where castiel imagines them all a peaceful cowboy life and helps dean wash his hands

    Summary

    Admitting it won’t make Dean any more inconsolable than he already is, and he’ll never feel Cas’ absence any more or any less acutely than he does in this exact moment. “He’s gone,” Dean finally admits, because it seems like the only thing left to say.

    When the terrible, swollen vacancy of the room offers no recourse, Sam says, “I know.”

    Summary

    “A human and his angel get caught in a net,” Dean says dryly, not seeming to notice how completely still Castiel has gone. “Sounds like a set up to a bad joke. Or a Bible story.”

    “I can assure you, Dean,” he manages to say, trying desperately not to fixate on Dean's words. “This has never happened in the Bible.”

    (feat. autumn longing and hope, a game of eye spy, hozier and led zepplin, mentions of the mixtape, and most importantly, dean and cas being best friends and helplessly in love with each other)
