1. Specific Fic:
This is a destiel, sabriel fic, post Season 5. Sam comes back to life (after jumping into the Pit) and so do Gabriel and Castiel (as humans/without powers.) He decides Dean will be better off and so won't go to him to tell him he's alive. They go on a semi-road trip to figure out what's going on with the now human angels. Early on there's a scene of him training them to be hunters by teaching them to fight; Cas gets tired quickly and makes a comment about how Dean said 'he should've walked or he'd be flabby' and Gabriel also quickly gets tired and decides hunters are crazy. As Gabriel and Sam get closer together, there's a scene where Cas - as he does - goes off to be by himself and Sam realizes he's missing drugs and freaks out, pointing out - when Gabriel asks/shrugs it off - 'he has a history'; they go out to the car where Cas is sitting and Cas offers the bottle and says he wasn't going to do anything with it. Cas goes back inside and Gabriel points out Cas never wanted to be human, and not to put too fine a point on it but the biggest thing that would make him happy is Dean and Sam said he can't have that. Sam - either in this scene or soon after - agrees to go to Bobby's for help, which Gabriel acknowledges is his way of wanting to let Dean know without being the one to break up Dean's 'apple pie life.' They get there and discover Dean there working on a car. He immediately points a gun at them, but can't pull the trigger right away because they look like his loved ones (while adding that Gabriel was kind of a weird addition/hanger on.) He mentions Cas isn't wearing his usual clothes and someone (Gabe?) makes a comment about dying because of that. One of them adds that they're human and Dean says something with faith and Cas ("looks triumphant") and says 'that's your problem, you have no faith' and Dean hugs Sam and hangs onto Cas. Also when Sam asks Dean what he's doing there it turned out Lisa kicked him out for hunting and/or drinking, and Bobby mentions what a pain he's been. And then Dean yells at Sam for not coming to him (I believe Gabriel and Cas watch them fight from a window.) Later I believe Dean/Cas declarations finally happen on the roof.>>Found
: For Love is Strong as Death
by Sakuri2. General Request:
Also a general (if detailed) request for S8 destiel fics: I'm not really looking for small codas, but more long fics that are semi-AU or touch on a lot of the season. (Or if they complete the trials, I'll take those in a heartbeat too.) I'd love if they include Benny, Kevin, Linda, Charlie, and/or Jody to some degree. I also love Meg - though I'm not really looking for any Megstiel (or Meanstiel) at the moment - and Naomi, and I'd rather those two don't die if they are in it. However if the fic kills off Crowley you get huge bonus points. ;) Things that also focus on fallen angels are cool, but no-s9 stuff (unless massively AU) please. Fic that's more domestic!bunker is cool, but I'm really looking for fic tied more into the later half season arc, though I'll take early/mid stuff too.3. General Request:
Sam/Sarah fics with heavy Dean. I'd prefer destiel but I'll take Dean/OC too. (Like The Salvation Futureverse
by B. Stearns.) This can be an AU from S2 or S8, or non-canon based, or whatever. I'm more interested in the Dean-Sarah aspect, but not them together (though I can live with Sam/Sarah/Dean in part or whole.) Not just episode codas, but where Sam and Sarah are end game. (I've also seen Sam/Sarah/Jess fics, which I'm ok with.)
Anyway huge thanks!!
