Summary: After four years of solitude on a remote island, Dean’s been through hell. But he’s home, he’s healing, and he has a very special gift for a man he’s never met. (Basically this is an AU of the movie Cast Away that takes place after the island.)
Oh, this was such a wonderful and clever fic! I loved that this fic starts off ~after~ the trauma of being stranded alone on an island for four years, exploring what the aftermath of that might look like. Great characterizations, and the build between Dean and Castiel was just lovely.

One visit leads to another, and before long, Castiel is completely won over by both the coffeeship and its owner. It’s hard to maintain a relationship when you’re constantly flying across the vastness of space, but for the sake of both his heart and his stomach, Castiel swears he and Dean will make it work.

Things had been quiet on the border town of Shepherd's Bend for months with no indication of changing.
Until one sleepless night Dean took a walk through the woods and found something that threatened everything he'd worked for, fought for, bled for.

Content/Warnings: bottom!dean
Summary: Dean’s extended period of self-discovery and inner reflection, of addressing all those fleeting little notions of his that maybe weren’t so little or fleeting after all, had culminated in one inescapable, terrifying fact.
He’s in love with Cas. Hopelessly, completely, embarrassingly in love with him.
They’ve just never had what they needed to explore this before, never had time, solitude, a real moment to breathe.
But they have it now, Dean thinks. He’s made damn sure of that.
Lovely, sexy, and almost gentle fic with Dean finally realizing and coming to terms with his feelings for Cas and working up the courage to do something about it.

Summary: When Dean, the Viking jarl of Týrvik, leaves on a raid to combat the enemy warriors attacking their ships, his husband Castiel is left to protect and lead the village. The ships return barely a week later, with damaged timbers and a devastated, leader-less crew, and suddenly Castiel finds himself not only in a position of leadership for which he is ill-equipped, but terrified for the safety of his captured husband.
With the possibility of a spy somewhere in the village’s midst, Castiel leaves his people under Sam’s care and departs on the journey north to where they think Dean is being held, in a desperate attempt to rescue him before it’s too late.
Really awesome and captivating Viking AU with established Dean/Castiel leading their village until an attack leads to Dean being captured and Castiel going after him. I really enjoyed the world here, and the connection between Castiel and Dean was really lovely.

Rating: Explicit
Word Count: 57,205
Content/Warnings: AU: Fusion, practical magic fusion, cop!castiel, bottom!dean, implied switching, magic
Summary: Dean has known about the family curse ever since it claimed the life of his mother: anyone who dares to love a Winchester is fated to die. When he takes a chance on love and loses his husband Benny, his belief in its power only grows stronger.
Two years later, a late-night phone call from his brother Sam sends both of their lives spinning wildly out of control. Then Officer Cas Novak arrives in town, looking into the disappearance of Sam’s girlfriend Ruby, and starts asking questions Sam and Dean can’t answer. Complicating matters even further, Dean feels an immediate, overwhelming connection to the intense, blue-eyed source of their problems.
Dealing with all the secrets, the lies, and a brother slowly crumbling under the weight of his guilt doesn’t leave much time for romance, but as Cas gets closer to the truth, he also gets closer to Dean.
Gorgeous Practical Magic fusion! The way the characters were all incorporated was brilliant, and the whole story was just captivating.

Summary: One morning, a vampire walks into a bakery.
It sounds like a bad joke, but it's just another day for Dean Winchester. Life in Lawrence has been impressively calm since the revelation that supernatural creatures walk among us, and Dean has met his fair share of them-- but none quite like Castiel. Luckily for him, his interest is reciprocated, but not so luckily, their budding connection is threatened by the rising tension in the city: someone is turning new vampires at an alarming rate. Castiel is reluctant to start anything serious in face of this situation, and Dean has been burned by vampires before, but as danger grows, so too does their connection.
Now all that's left is to find the bad guy, save the city, and figure out how to negotiate a relationship between a very human baker-slash-bartender and an immortal being of darkness.
Super fun AU with Vampire Castiel and Baker Dean getting involved while mysterious supernatural forces are moving about Lawrence. The characterizations here were great and I really enjoyed the build.

Summary: “Did you know that you have a piece of material in front of your door that says, ‘come on in?’”
Wonderful AU with Vampire Castiel and broke, depressed college student Dean crossing paths. I really enjoyed how the various characters were incorporated here, and the connection between Dean and Castiel was just fantastic. The sequel covers Dean being turned and goes more into Castiel's past. There's also a AU Reverse 'Verse of the fics in this series that I've not read.

Content/Warnings: AU: Role Reversal (kind of), hunter!castiel, creature!fic, implied switching
Summary: The death of a young man in an apparent animal attack brings hunter Cas Novak to the small town of Sydnam, Maine. It doesn’t take long for him to realize he’s tracking a werewolf, but discovering the killer’s identity is no easy task. All signs point towards Dean Winchester, a lonely recluse who lives in the middle of the woods and whose antagonistic behaviour does little to lessen Cas’ suspicions.
As the investigation drags on, their mutual distrust gives way to a wary alliance. Cas’ instincts warn him that Dean is hiding something, but as he uncovers the man beneath the mystery, his professional interest becomes far more personal. Praying his faith in Dean isn’t misplaced, Cas races to catch the killer before the next full moon rises and another life is abruptly cut short.
Awesome AU with Hunter Castiel who goes to investigate a potential werewolf issue and encounters the reclusive Dean. I loved the slight role reversal here, and the plot was really engaging. Great build-up and the side characters were also brilliantly written. :)

Content/Warnings: AU: No Supernatural, AU: Fusion, The Proposal Fusion, boss/employee relationship, fake/pretend relationship, marriage!fic, bottom!dean
Summary: For two years, Dean’s been slaving away beneath his boss – many label him a secretary, but he fucking hates that and feels like it only applies to someone wearing a pencil skirt, so he insists on his title of Executive Assistant. And for what? In the vain hope that one day he’ll manage to become an editor for Sandover Publishing, and that he’ll see the manuscript that he’s slaved over since college finally realized in print.
That’s the dream, anyway.
Right now, he’s fucking late.
Dean wants to be an editor. Castiel just wants to stay in the country.
The Proposal’ – as you’ve never seen it before.
Really wonderfully done Proposal Fusion! The adaptation worked fantastically with Dean and Cas, and I loved the build and pacing here. The background characters were also really great, and the chemistry between Dean and Cas here was off the charts! Just a super enjoyable read. :)

Summary: Just as Dean is starting to get comfortable at his new mining job in Nevada, the site is shaken by the announcement of a six-week visit from a team of consultants hired to make changes to the practices and procedures of the mine. Among that team is Castiel Novak, one of the most coolly infuriating, stuck-up, unfairly attractive men Dean has ever met.
The friction between them comes to a head during an unexpected but scorching hot makeout session at a company picnic, and they soon fall into a pattern of hooking up at the site or after work at Castiel’s hotel. But it’s just sex, or so they keep telling themselves. Castiel is only in Nevada for six weeks. They’ll have their fun, and then it’ll be over. But as those six weeks go by and they gradually get to know each other, both of them find themselves wondering if there might be a chance it could become something more.
Awesome AU with miner Dean and consultant Castiel with ALL the sexual tension! Loved the enemies to lovers to friends progression, and the angsty feels here were perfection.

Summary: The kingdoms of Calorna and Hiemere have been at war for centuries. Dean and Castiel, princes of those embattled lands, have never known peace, but when they inherit their respective crowns following a devastating battle, it suddenly lies within their grasp. The best way to ensure that peace is a formal alliance-- in this case, a marriage between the two newly-crowned kings.
Though their union begins as a political arrangement, it soon deepens into something more. There is only one problem: some strange incompatibility means that they cannot touch without causing each other intense pain. As they struggle to adjust to the realities of their new situation, it becomes clear that peace is not the only consequence of their alliance. Long dormant powers are stirring, and if Dean and Castiel can hold fast to one another, their love may remake the world as they know it.
Really fascinating fantasy/royalty AU with Dean and Castiel entering into an arranged marriage to end the war between their countries, and falling for each other along the way. Gorgeous tension and build between them, and an engaging and well-paced plot!

Dean and Cas get in touch again, but Dean's not so sure he fits into Cas' life anymore, as much as he wants to.
Super fabulous AU with Dean and Castiel as HS best friends/fuck buddies who've grown apart and reconnect ten years later. Lovely characterizations and the sex was suuuuper hot!

Summary: Castiel Novak never wanted to be a Dominant. Living with the mark on his skin that designates him as one has haunted him every day of his life, and he goes to great lengths to avoid the part of his biology that he hates. When he makes the decision to get a tattoo with the intent of hiding his mark away, he meets Dean Winchester: tattoo artist and confident submissive.
Dean turns Castiel’s world upside down and subverts every expectation Castiel ever had about himself and his designation. Will Dean be able to teach him how to be comfortable in his own skin?
Really lovely BDSM AU with Castiel fighting his Dominant nature and Dean offering to help him work through it. The characterizations and connection between Dean and Castiel here was really lovely, and the whole thing was super engaging!

Summary: When his brother embarks on a risky venture, Prince Dean of Pellia’s only choice is to enter into a marriage with the king of Arxelle in order to save Sam’s life as well as his own. King Castiel is severe, aloof, and no more happy about their hasty wedding than Dean. Marital bliss is the last state either of them expects to reach, but as Dean spends more time in his new home, he and Castiel slowly begin to settle into a partnership that allows them to put the needs of their kingdom before their own feelings. The longer they spend together, though, the more those feelings develop, daring them both to wonder if they might ever be husbands in more than just name.
Really fabulously written Fantasy Royalty AU with Castiel and Dean having to get married for ~reasons~ and sloooowly falling for each other after that. The build was fabulous, the characterizations were on point, and the whole thing developed so beautifully it was a joy to read!

Summary: Castiel Novak might have to attend three weddings in two months, but he’s not about to let his brother play matchmaker. His family’s Internet streaming company is too important to let a relationship steal his time, but he knows exactly what to do–hire someone to pretend to be his boyfriend.
Dean Winchester has worked five-star hospitality long enough to know how to fit in with Castiel’s crowd, and this job could score him the connections to make his acting career take off. It’s a business deal, no matter how they’re drawn to each other. When the lines of their contract start to blur into real feelings, can they withstand Castiel’s family and jealous fans working to split them up?
Fabulous fake/pretend relationship AU. Loved the characterizations here and the build was just wonderful!

Summary: When Alpha Castiel finds out that Omega Dean has been selling sex to care for his little brother there is really no other option than to invite the Winchester brothers into his home.
The one where fate takes a cruel turn and then does a 180.
Really wonderful fic with Dean selling himself to care for his brother, and Castiel (who's their Dad's age) putting a stop to that by offering to let Sam and Dean live with him. I thought the relationship build here was really great, and I loved the characterizations. Do take note of the underage tag, though! There are also several explicit Dean/Benny scenes in case that's an issue for you, though it's definitely made clear that Dean is wishing it was Cas. ;)

Summary: When FBI agent Dean Winchester was first assigned to the Ghost’s case, he was expecting it to be the same as any other serial killer hunt--frustrating dead ends, a trail of bodies, unending paperwork. What he wasn’t expecting was for it to be interrupted by a mysterious alpha calling himself Cas, knowing far too much about him and offering up not just a lead, but concrete information on his mother’s killer.
As the two set off in search of justice for Mary Winchester and the countless other victims of Azazel Masters, Dean struggles to come to grips with himself. Despite his whirlwind attraction to Cas, he knows that exposing himself to his colleagues as an omega instead of the beta he pretends to be would be a mistake. Nothing can happen between the two of them; not without Dean losing everything he knows.
But resisting the mysterious alpha isn’t nearly as easy as he anticipated--no matter the dark secrets the man carries with him.
(A Hannibal-inspired AU)
Really fun and engaging ABO AU with FBI agent Dean going after the man who killed his mother with a mysterious Castiel who is very clearly not exactly what he seems. The plot was really interesting, the pacing was great, and the smut was seriously hot. The ending is a smidge abrupt, and there are definitely a number of loose threads, but as the authors say, part of the fun is imaging for yourself what happens next.

Content/Warnings: AU: Omega!Verse, alpha/beta/omega dynamics, alpha!castiel, omega!dean, bottom!dean, implied switching, heat cycles, knotting, lawyer!castiel, mechanic!dean, heat cycles, rimming, mates, biting
Summary: Dean is a grown-ass man - he can take perfectly good care of himself, thank you very much. Except that sometimes the easier or more fun choices aren't always the right or best ones, and, all right, maybe thinking ahead and working the long game isn't his strongest suit. It's fine! He's fine.
When he meets Castiel, he realizes that flying by the seat of his pants may not be the best way to attract the super-serious (gorgeous, funny, genius) Alpha. Dean's shrink has been telling him he needs to start making "grown-up choices," and if that's what he has to think about in order to make Cas fall for him, then he'll give it a whirl.
Ooo, this series is SO good! Dean's headspace in this is wonderful, and I really enjoyed watching him and Castiel dance around one another. Their relationship was lovely and felt very adult and mature, and the a/b/o aspects were really brilliantly incorporated.

Summary: Ever since his wife Lisa died, Dean Winchester has been willing to do anything for his son Ben. When Ben decided he wanted to adopt a halfling, Dean said yes without hesitation - provided they did so the right way, by giving whichever half-human they decided to bring home the respect and dignity it deserved. Half-octopi Castiel isn't exactly what they were looking for in a pet, but, then, they aren't exactly what Castiel was expecting for owners, either.
Really fascinating read! The world building here was excellently done and I really enjoyed the sloooow burn between Castiel and Dean. Don't let the tags put you off, I promise the relationship between Dean and Castiel develops very organically and slowly and doesn't feel predatory at all.

Summary: Born a Magi, a childhood accident gives Castiel abilities beyond what nature and sanity allow. Castiel is Gifted with the ability to see every human's death date, their ultimate expiration, just by a glance into their eyes. He's ruined countless lives escaping his own nightmarish reality, and some of the people he's wronged are after their pound of flesh. Living in solitude, working on his medical compositions, and atoning for his sins day-by-day is his life now, and one he's content with.
Until a Magi shows up at his door, begging Castiel to save his critically injured brother, and when Castiel looks into his green eyes, he sees...nothing.
Dean Winchester is a Magi by nature, a Slayer by trade. He doesn't blink twice before ripping apart the monsters who threaten their world, but relying on the help of a recluse with cold, haunted blue eyes and more power than any Magi should ever have?
Dean is the exception to the rule that has dominated Castiel's life, and Cas might just be the answer to every prayer Dean's never known to make.
Awesome AU with a really fascinating concept and gorgeous characterizations! I really enjoyed how all the various characters were utilized here, and the world-building was really interesting! The chemistry between Dean and Cas was fabulous, and the whole thing was really engaging!

In the capital city, Dean Winchester, long-serving member of the Royal Guard, is due to be elevated to the rank of Captain, rewarded for his dedication and leadership these many years.
But as dark forces begin to move against the kingdom, a chance meeting will bring these two men together, and their destinies will collide in ways neither of them could ever have predicted.
Really fabulous Fantasy AU with Royal Guard Dean and Magical Guardian Castiel coming together to save their world from unknown forced. The world-building here was really wonderful, the plot was exciting and perfectly paced, and I adored the development between Dean and Castiel here. Plus, super hot, and a great cast of background characters.

Summary: So this is how it goes. Best day of Dean Winchester’s life. Loses his job, finds out he’s been cheated on, gets dumped, all in the course of one fucked up Thursday. Drinking himself into oblivion is the natural response, right? A chance encounter in a dingy dive bar gives Dean a new friend who sees his problems and likes him anyway. Now, as Dean struggles to pick up the pieces of his life, Castiel just might help him put them back together in a way he never expected.
Really wonderful AU with Dean and Cas forming a friendship and then getting into a BDSM 'relationship'. I really loved Dean's headspace here, and I thought the kink was really well done!

Summary: Dean's sixteen when he meets John's well-to-do boss, Castiel Novak, and he's quick to develop a crush during a time where he's only begun to discover his preferences. He dates the beautiful Lisa and practically raises his younger brother Sam, because it's what John expects. But Castiel appears to see Dean in a way no one else does, and despite him knowing there's no way anything can happen between them, he relishes in the idea that Castiel cares at all for his well-being.
Between mounting pressures from a teenage Sam that no longer wants a caretaker, John's nudging for Dean to follow a career path he doesn't want, and a mysterious check for the exact amount of one semester at the school Dean had been eyeing, Dean finds himself reconnecting with Castiel.
And Castiel has a very interesting proposition for him.
Seriously freaking hot fic with an older Castiel entering into a BDSM relationship with newly legal Dean. The kink was fantastic and the evolution of their relationship was really wonderfully done.

Summary: As a grease monkey turned college freshman, Dean's constantly three seconds away from being stressed out of his mind. It hardly helps that he's finally figuring out his sexuality in his thirties.
What might help with that stress is a little phone number (and a big credit card bill). If he can't figure out how to be bisexual in person, he can at least give it a go over the phone, right?
(It's probably a bad idea, but he really can't help himself.)
Seriously AMAZING AU with Dean going to school later in life to prepare to take over Bobby's autoshops as he comes to terms with his bisexuality through calling a phone sex hotline. The build here is fantastic, the characterizations are amazing, and holy fuck the sex and tension is wicked hot. I know it seems long but it honestly *flew* by. And there are a couple of super hot follow-ups as well! <3
