GABI’S DESTIEL FIC REC

I’ve always wanted to make one of these and since I’ve also been asked a few times about which fics I’d recommend, here’s a list of those I’ve kept along ever since I joined the Supernatural fandom (3 years ago, ha !).

This is ordered alphabeticaly, I got kinda lazy when it came to class it from type of fanfic and all … also please bear with my lecture choices /embarassed sobbing/

* Confiteor.
Summary :  “I have a job,” he says, carefully, like Dean is not intimately fucking aware of that situation. Like Dean hasn’t been googling grim statistics on gas station robberies and watching clips from Clerks on youtube for the last few weeks like a sad dumb jerk.

Vessel mauled and eyes destroyed, Cas is barely clinging to what’s left of his grace when Dean finds him naked and alone on the reservoir’s edge; in a panic, Dean brings him home to the cabin where he and Sam have been holed up off the grid.
