AU: Dean and Cas meets an alternate version of themselves. And well… there’s a few surprises waiting for them.
‘The Profound Bond’ - A new romantic comedy starring Jensen Ackles and Misha Collins. When Federal Agent Dean Winchester gets paired with an angel as part of the Bureau’s new Human-Angel Cooperation Initiative, the partnership seems less than ideal. Castiel is arrogant, painfully inept in the ways of normal human interaction, and less than stellar at routine questioning. But as time passes, the human and angel begin to find themselves growing less at odds and more endeared to each other. Loosely inspired by aesc’s Below Skyscrapers.
“Oh, I’m sorry, did you not want your ridiculously blatant crush on Dean Winchester brought up?” Gabriel says disbelievingly.
“I don’t know what you’re talking about,” Cas says, fully aware that his body is too stiff and his voice too strained and that his cheeks are currently filling with traitorous, tell-tale blood. He stares down at the glass still clutched in his hands, determined not to look at anyone.
“Back me up here, Luke,” Gabe says. “What does Cas think of Dean?”
“He wants to ride that ass like Mary into Bethlehem.”
“Everybody in this room is going to Hell,” Michael says, head still in his hands.
My Roots Take Flight - KismetJeska
After forty years in Hell, Dean’s more than willing to accept the offer: become a guardian angel and earn his freedom. But his new ward seems destined to hunt alongside Sam, and there are secrets in Heaven that the angels don’t want found out. Dean’s going to have to choose between his duty and the people he loves- and to work out just where Castiel fits in.
Destiel Song (lyrics from actual lines in the show, show # in brackets)
Can I tell you something if you promise not to tell another soul? [4.07]
We’ve been through much together, you and I. [4.22]
We’re making it up as we go. [4.22]
I’m hunted, I’ve rebelled and I did it, all of it, for you. [5.02]
I thought you said that we were like family. I believe that too. [6.21]
I do everything you ask, I always come when you call and I am your friend, still, despite your lack of faith in me and now your threats. I just saved you yet again. Has anyone but your closest kin ever done more for you? [6.21]
Don’t ever change. [5.04]
I need you. [8.02]
Sorry, but I’d rather have you, cursed or not. [7.23]
Don’t make me lose you too. [6.22]
We were family once. I’d have died for you. [6.22]
Let me bottom line it for you; I’m not leaving here without you. [8.02]
What do you believe? [5.03]
Now I’m asking, I need your help, please. [4.18]
I prayed to you every night. [8.02]
You made an exception for me. [4.15]
Has anyone but your closest kin ever done more for you? [6.21]
This was beautiful. My emotions.
but guys. it really exists.
OH MY GOD… WHAT HAS MY POST NOW BECOME? I AM CRYING SO HARD.
Omg what the actual fuck.
Can someone please bring one of these pictures for misha to sign?
Don’t – ever! Don’t ever apologize for…us.
Don’t…don’t apologize for…who we were.
You made me…so happy Dean. We did our best…we gave it…our best try…and it was…really beautiful.
Twist and Shout has ruined me for fanfiction. Read it.
So it seems a recent kerfuffle has brought to light, yet again, the fundamental disconnect between fandom and TPTB. The actors still appear to harbor inaccurate ideas about why we ship, and the fans are still bad at clearing things up and dispelling negative stereotypes, which is immensely frustrating.
On that note, here are a couple points I would love to explain to Misha and TPTB, in the alternate universe where I have ten minutes to rant at them.
“In essence, Destiel isn’t a compelling dynamic because it’s hot - it’s hot because it’s compelling dynamic.”
Please take over my shipping column, with quality stuff like this around I don’t deserve to even exist much less write things about shipping where people can hear it.
Bravo and hallelujah.
I just want to hug this meta and shower it in kisses.
