Summary: Cas’ nose scrunches up when he laughs. It takes years for Dean to notice this.
Dean and Cas settle into retirement together.

Why you should read it: Dean takes concrete steps to finally express to Castiel how he feels. Bonus for them taking a trip to the Grand Canyon, first kisses, and Castiel beaming at Dean.
3. Bureocracy Saves the Day (Or how Dean Winchester charmed his way into godhood by accident) by luxshine
Summary: Dean was sure he was dying. He had a hole in his chest that was holding up together just thanks to the rebar that had created it.
And yet, no Reaper in sight. He was still painfully breathing, still hearing Sam cry over his not-dead body.
What was going on?
Why you should read it: LOVE the throwbacks to every god or deity they’ve met along the way and the influence that Dean has had on the world. Also there’s a squirrel altar and Destiel happens cuz love.
Summary: When the hunt goes wrong, Dean thinks it’s the end for him. Until Sam prays to Jack and Jack sends some help
Why you should read it: Dean gets an opportunity to finally speak his truth and Cas puts absolutely no pressure on him as his hunter reveals it all. Plus, talk of being together forever.
“And if my wishes came true
It would’ve been you
In my defense, I have none
For never leaving well enough alone
But it would’ve been fun
If you would’ve been the one.” – “the 1”, Taylor Swift (album: folklore).
Why you should read it: Dean contemplates how cute he and Cas could’ve been, there’s a pie festival, and the reunion we all know we desperately want to read over and over. Also Castiel gardens, because that’s something we love now.
Summary: “Listen,” Dean says, steeling himself. “I’m not ready to talk about what you said. But, there’s one thing I have to tell you.” He sets down his coffee and takes the deepest breath he can. He still can’t make himself look at Castiel. “There’s one thing you said that I have to…you said the one thing you want, you can’t ever have.”
Another pause. Fuck, he doesn’t understand why this is so hard. Dean’s killed just about every monster kind known to man; he’s punched Hitler and God. He’s been to Heaven, Hell, and Purgatory. He’s been to alternate universes, faced off against deities from all over the globe. But he can’t look Castiel in the eyes and tell him…tell him….
He thinks, though, that just maybe he can start to show him.
“Nobody ever said you can’t have it,” he whispers. And then he takes Castiel’s hand into his own, and holds it.
Why you should read it: Dean is allowed the time to process his feelings for Castiel with help from Sam, who asks the tough questions that Dean needs to answer. Also Sam and Eileen are cute AF and help Dean start to picture a life with Castiel. PLUS DESTIEL HAND HOLDING.
Summary: Dean didn’t know what to do, after. He had never thought there would be an after, not for him. There would be for Sammy, he’d make damn sure of that. But for him? He had always known, with a solemn certainty deep in his chest, that he would die young and he would go down swinging. He’d told Sam that, ages ago, back before there were angels and when demons were above their pay grade. But he has to do something, so he buys a farm.
Why you should read it: Dean becomes a farmer, human Castiel is a thing, and they’re both idiots in love. Oh, and there’s a cat that doesn’t like Dean.
Summary: Dean falls in love with a couch he sees on the side of the road. With two grown men, one angel, the actual God, and a dog coming to movie night, they sure need one.
Everyone falls in love with the couch, too– in more ways than one.
Why you should read it: There’s a sweet dog, bedroom eyes, and first kisses.
Summary: Cas is back, and Dean has something to say.
Why you should read it: At one point, one half of Destiel called the other “boyfriend” and we swooned. Plus first kisses, cheek kisses, and bed kisses.
Summary: Dean is dead. For real this time; not some half-way death, not some sacrifice or as some plan to talk to a Reaper or get an audience with Death. He is dead dead. And he’s happy with it. He is happy. Or he should be happy. Heaven is life… ebbing and flowing; only it’s without the social pressure of life on Earth. There are no bills or jobs; no stress and crime. It’s bliss. Or it should be…
…But it’s not because Dean can’t ignore the one glaring truth; the one thing that is missing.
Dean gets to go to Heaven, but he can’t be happy because he can’t stop thinking about the last conversation he had with Cas, before everything went pear-shaped. He needs to find Cas and make things right. He has to tell Cas the truth.
Why you should read it: Dean asks for what he wants and gets it. Plus kissing.
