Human Error by jemariel
Published 2019, 33k words, E
Cas is human now, and things aren’t going to plan.
(Not that Dean had a plan. Nope. No plans of any kind.)
Anyway, what’s a Winchester to do when everything he tries seems to blow up in his face?
Go hunting. Obviously.
Dean Doesn’t Listen to Eurythmics by Annie D
Published 2010, 1941 words, E
Dean and Castiel share a bed. It starts out platonic, and then becomes something else.
Dean and Sam Winchester have spent their whole lives on the road. All they ever wanted was to pass the Wizard Trials and find a place to settle down like normal people for once. But the Trials leave Sam less than well and Dean jumps at the first offer they get. What better way to start their new lives and give Sam a chance to recover than as the official Wizard for a small, simple town?
There was no way that Dean could have anticipated that the sleepy little town wasn’t as idyllic as he had been led to believe, that the job entailed more than Chief Crowley would ever admit, that their lives were in mortal danger and oh, that’s right, the ghost of the last wizard who’d undertaken the post was now courting him.
So much for the simple life…
Dean must now decide by Lammas Night if he will banish or resurrect the ghost of Castiel – but no matter which way Dean decides, they still need to find out what happened to Castiel and why.
And will they be next?
