Just, maybe he finds a way to get back to her and they travel together again, but their relationship is strictly a strong friendship, what with the metacrisis and all. I find the romance to be a bit cheesy anyway
Everyone is amazingly in character and it could actually pass as canon.
Instead of becoming even further depressed, he just decides to stop taking their shit and kills them all or something
Think Jack Bauer in the season 1 finale of 24.
I can’t for the life of me remember the plot details but it was part of Dean/Cas Big Bang last year or the year before and in the end, Cas still has all his powers and I remember there’s a little line about how Bobby gets pneumonia but Dean and Sam don’t call Cas to heal him at first. And he gets kind of annoyed at them and lectures them about how pneumonia could be deadly in older people (i have no idea why I remember this part)
In the final scene, we see Cas smiting someone who looks like he’s going in for the kill. Well, right before that we see Dean kind of dazed and down on the ground, followed by a really bright flash of light behind him.
So they’re ambushed, Dean’s about to be offed, but Cas gets right in front of his and kills the sucker? Don’t even care if this doesn’t turn out to be canon. It already is in my head.
Not that Redemption Road isn’t amazing, and not that these fics are competing or anything, but this is definitely the best spn fic I’ve ever read.
Summary: The law of conservation of energy states that energy cannot be created or destroyed, only transformed from one state into another. And what is grace, if not energy? In order to win the war in Heaven, Castiel and the Winchesters embark on a cross-country quest to find the scattered shards of Gabriel’s grace in the hopes that its remaining power will be enough to defeat Raphael before he and Crowley can open the door to Purgatory.
