Dean is in the bathroom too long. Always too long.
He used to do this as a kid; Dean thinks that his brother doesn’t remember, but the images are burned into his mind, like so many others. Dean was silent for a long, long time. Didn’t talk, didn’t even communicate; not with gesture, not with noise.
Now it seems like things are hardly different; he speaks, sure, but he’s not really saying anything; and he’s staying in the bathroom too long.
Sam slams his fist on the door. “Dean,” he says, and there is no response from inside.
Well, the person who normally works with newly-deceased Donald Westerly on his Thursday night bartending shifts is working — surprise surprise — tomorrow on Thursday, so that means Dean is now needlessly dressed in a suit and at a bar with Cas, waiting on Sam’s news from the morgue, while tonight’s bartender is making bedroom eyes at Cas.
“Definitely a wraith, though,” he mutters under his breath to Cas, taking a sip of whiskey. “An entry wound like that?”
“A kitsune would have produced a similar mark,” Cas reminds him snidely, and knocks back the entirety of his (seventh) drink in one go. Dean cringes.
ssssh let’s pretend i was studying,i just read this 8.07 coda-fic and..i feel really HAPPY. It’s been so long since i read a coda-fic that i feel it could actually happen in canon. This is not an accusation to fic’s authors, it was a problem of the show. In season 7 was hard -at least for me- to imagine/write a dean/cas coda fic or a canon!verse.and..now, i feel that YES, Dean and Cas had this conversation in the 8.07 and it’s not over. So we can picture millions of ways they could end it..and this was another thing i missed *sigh*..so..YES. Ok…back to pretend study.
Title, Rating: Signs and portents, PG-13
Word Count: 2730
Warnings (including pairings other than Dean/Castiel):
Summary: At first, Dean doesn’t really notice it: Dean and Castiel being mistaken as a couple.
Signs and portents is a hilarious take on what would happen if, instead of Sam and Dean being mistaken as a couple, Dean and Cas were mistaken as a couple. Hilarity ensues.
PG - Dean/Castiel - Alternate Universe: Victorian England, Misunderstandings, Marriage Proposals, Fluff and Angst“No?” Castiel repeats, dumbly.
“Why didn’t you go with them?” Sam says as the car’s tires squeal and Dean and Benny drive away. There’s anger in his voice, and he looks daggers at the passenger side of the car as though he could burn Benny out of the shotgun seat.
Castiel sighs and doesn’t answer. He’s thinking of that moment again, the one where he could have pushed and let his power overwhelm and forced him self up through that portal. The other time he chose not to go with them.
“Cas?” Sam’s voice comes as though from far away.
He forces himself to return to reality. “Sam.” He clears his throat. “It doesn’t matter.”
“Like hell it doesn’t. I could have handled things here alone.”
“As could I. Why didn’t you go with him?”
“Cause I can’t stand that vampire.” Sam’s lip curls. “Besides, your power’s still shaky from the trip. There’s no reason you should have to do this alone.”
“Yes, there is.” The words are out before he can help them.
