Where everybody knows by rupertgayes (10:50)
Published in 2021, 19k words, E
When the surviving angel tasked with pulling the Michael Sword from Hell succeeds too late, a demonic Dean Winchester and weakened Castiel claw their way back to earth. Dean’s determined to stop the Apocalypse, for some grandiose-scale petty revenge if nothing else, and Castiel is determined to follow the Righteous Man, no matter what path that may put him on.
Dont forget to also talk about forgotten fruit
And also the heard from your mother (she don’t recognize you) series
help i’ve fallen and i can’t find my grace by jad (28:10)

Art by Sevenspirals
If there’s one thing Dean’s good at it’s killing, and now, with the Mark of Cain hungry on his forearm, the First Blade in his hand, and no qualms when it comes to the intricacies of right and wrong, he can showcase his talents as much as he wants. And he wants.
Crowley is quick to sink in his hooks and get a Winchester on his side. Sam is determined to get his brother back, to save him no matter the cost, but Castiel isn’t sure Dean wants to be saved.
Weakened by failing grace and running out of time, Castiel has to make the hard choice: kill the man he’s given everything for, or sacrifice everything he stands for to bring him back.
Fata morgana. by orange_crushed (34:03)
Published in 2014, 6629 words, T
The endless asphalt and broken road, the empty land and piles of human garbage, the unwanted ends of life, the cracked toys and broken screens and burning cars and gravel. Dean Winchester is the king of hell.
“Oh,” says Bela.
That changes certain things.
Where There is Love by bookkbaby (58:00)
Published in 2015, 4712 words, E
Where there is love, there is God’s grace.
But is love enough to save Father Castiel’s soul when the one he loves is a demon?
