I hope I'm posting this right... I'm new to LJ.
I'm looking for some multi-chapter plot driven gen fics that are Castiel!Centric with a focus on his friendship/bond with the brothers (please no pairings). Specifically I'm a big fan of hurt/comfort, with a big enphisis on the recovery portion. If I have to be picky, I'd say I'm looking for stuff taking place after season 4, since that's when I think the charatcers'; relationships are strongest.
I really appreciate any recommendations out there. It's been really tough finding gen fics, and I'm really a huge fan of really strong friendships and brotherly bonds.
Here is a list of some of my favorite fics, as reference or in case I can help anyone else looking as I am:Forgotton
by Northern SparrowSummary: Sam and Dean are working a case in Wyoming, but are distracted by news of a dangerous angel called "Castiel"; who they can't remember ever having heard of before. The name seems a little bit familiar, but neither of the boys is sure why.
This is BY FAR my favorite fan fiction for Supernatural yet. It is very well written and has a great plot! I've seriously read it about 5 times over. Northern Sparrow is currently working on a Destiel/Slash sequal called "Flight", but has promised a gen version, which will be called "Broken".Comfort to the Enemy
/ The Devil You Know
by REB JennSummary: Lucifer's rising in front of Sam & Dean ; an archangel's descending on Castiel. Picks up where the 4.22 finale left off.
I know a lot of people recomend this fic, and for good reason! I know I said I'm not really a fan of stuff from season 4, but this fic is a good exception. It is so well written and hits all the right whump spots.
The Hallowing of Pain (Four Men in a Car To Say Nothing of the Devil
, When Angels Deserve to Die
, Another Angel Down
, The Hunter and the Hunted
by AmynionSummery: Team Free Will are reunited and back on the road! Though they seem to have an unwanted passenger... Picks up after 7x17
This is a series of smaller fics that really should have just been posted as one big fic. I recomend it highly. It has the most creative Purgatory description I've read yet. The links above are in order.Pride and Pestilence
by Celtic AmazonSummary: The Winchesters and Castiel go hunting for the latest horseman to be summoned: Pestilence. But there are things the angel isn't telling them, and his pride may prove to be his downfall.
This is a good plot driven sick!castiel fic.
Again I really appreciate any recommendations anyone has! I've honestly been scouring the archives for two months
, and the above are really all I've found... I could use some help!
