51stCenturyFox | T | pre-slash, sleepy cuddles, Cas watches Dean sleep
Castiel deals with his new angel charges and makes his way back to the Winchesters.
"Gank them,” sighs Castiel, forcing patience into his tone. A leader, a teacher, should be patient above all else. “Smite them. End their existence. Send them back to Hell. Since you’re there.”
“That’s not our-”
“If you say ‘that’s not our job,’ Jehoel, I’ll have you know that I have changed multiple shockingly full diapers, done weekly inventory for two months, and mopped a prodigious amount of vomit from the floor of a Gas N’ Sip restroom.”
This post-9x14 fic takes a look at post-human!Cas dealing with his new angelic followers and Dean with more insight than we’ve seen from him in the past. Also there are adorable snuggles.

Cas waking up one morning to find Dean’s ring on his finger.
This sweet little vignette pokes fun at the fandom cliché that Dean would have to be drunk to ever reveal a feeling, because it’s not like he doesn’t know it.

Cas is doing some research and Dean panics.
Cracktastically hilarious and perfect for the show (not to mention fandom) that says, “What’s a fourth wall?” It’s also short and sweet, so if you don’t have much time, but want a Destiel-flavored chuckle, go check it out.

Nearly a year after starting the fire that claimed the lives of Ruby Darvelle and Anna Novak, fifteen year old Sam Winchester returns home from his stint in court ordered rehab. The Winchester brothers struggle to remake their own complicated relationship and the home they’ve lost in the wake of this tragedy, while a chance meeting brings Anna’s brother, the troubled and secretive Castiel, into their lives. Fighting with his recovery, Sam finds himself drawn to the strong and lively Jess, while Castiel and Dean find comfort in one another. As consequences of their past emerge and threaten to tear apart what they’ve carefully rebuilt, they are all forced to reevaluate who their family really is, and to what lengths they’re willing to go to keep it safe.
This high school all-human AU delves into some really dark topics, so heed the warnings well. That said, each of the issues is handled thoughtfully and reflects who these characters might be if they still had their same issues but were not hunters or angels. If you’re in the mood for a high school AU Destiel that is long and plotty but also very character-driven, and are up for a large dose of angst/hurt that makes the happy/comfort an even better payoff, then this is the fic for you.
