"ROCK & ROLL" by blossomshed
"Castiel Novak is renowned for two things; his unbroken arrest streak, and his refusal to work with a partner. So when he asks Dean for help on what looks like an open-and-shut case, he’s expecting to play yes-man to a pompous ass. Instead, the two of them get dragged into something bigger, and much more sinister, than either expect.
At least they’ve got a great soundtrack to do it by.”
human AU, DCBB12; AUs where they’re working in law enforcement always have the benefit of a case. In this case (ha!) it’s eve linked to them personally. Schemes, politics and the joy of ‘watching’ Dean and Cas investigating something and learnnig step by step how to trust each other.
"Hard Road" by AleishaPotter
"Dean discovers a few truths about himself when he and Cas are forced to go undercover on a hunt to the very last place Dean ever thought he’d find himself: a gay resort called "Last Hope" that is geared towards helping troubled homosexual couples repair their relationships."
NC-17, written for DCBB13; like I wouldn’t love Dean and Cas trapped in a resort for gay couples and their woes. The two fit right in, make some friends and confront a few feelings. Absolutely wonderful.
"What if instead of Mary, John died in the house fire? What if Castiel, to protect Anna, fell much sooner? What if Dean and Cas meet during Sam’s first year at Stanford and start hunting together?"
NC-17, canon divergent; trained to hunt by Mary, Dean has problems letting Sam go when he decides to go to Stanford. Luckily he doesn’t remain alone the way he did in canon but instead gets introduced to Cas, another hunter, and starts hunting with him.
There are many small but significant changes to the original story that show how different everything would have gone down. Also has aliveandawesome!Jess, a Mary that is very different to all the ‘perfect’ versions of her you usually find in AUs, and the family business that finally gains a few more members.
"Renegade" by quiddative
"Officially, Castiel is a deeply committed, borderline workaholic PA. In reality, he’s little more than a glorified babysitter to a spoiled superhero."
Iron Man 2 (human)AU where Dean is Iron Man and Cas is Pepper Potts. Okay, seriously. Read the summary: it’s perfect and awesome. Mechanical suits, jealousy and stupid villains. It’s a parade!
Not Part of the Plan - Series by scaramouche
"It’s Castiel’s first visit to the neighboring Republic in years, and he decides to use his one free night to pick up a stranger from a bar. He meets Dean."
humanAU, NC-17; The first three parts are finished yay!!
If you haven’t started reading this series yet - get on it. Everything is utter perfection. It’s hot and true to the characters and has every trope you’ve ever loved. Cas is supposed to be married so he sets out to lose his virginity on his own terms. Enter Dean. (And no, Dean doesn’t turn out to be the intended husband afterwards - it’s much better than that.)
Isn’t it the perfect song for Cas to sing to Dean?
Listen to the lyrics.
Watch the album’s cover.
Once a week, every Monday, for 21 weeks… I will post a different “shade” of Castiel. ^_^

Misha being totally adorable on his first convention when a fan asks him to say one of Castiel's lines. ღ
