“Episodes 7 and 8 will reveal much much more on that front as well as enlighten the audience about Cas’ arc for the season that involves a big threat, says Collins. “There’s something going on with Cas that neither Cas nor the brothers know. Cas is sort of being manipulated behind the scenes and he’s not aware of that and neither are the boys,” he says. “We’ll see how that affects their relationship in the long run.””

Dear writers, either stop taking ideas from RR or just make the whole thing canon.
I know he didn’t exactly spell it out.
But Sam asks, “so Cas is dead, you saw him die?” and Dean nods slowly. That could mean that he’s dead. It could also mean a few other things, for example what you said. (And horrible things like he’s worse than mental!Cas and 2014!Cas combined)
The thing that’s giving me hope though, is that if Cas were to die this season, I really don’t think they would give it away just yet, so I’m hopeful, but I’ve had my hopes and my heart and all my feels crushed by this damn show so many times I don’t even know if I should bother with hoping for nice things anymore.
That having been said, I want to be wrong about this, because I’m probably the last person in the Universe who would want Castiel dead and I’d really like it if the writers gave poor angel a break for once.
But we’ll just have to see, I guess.
if Castiel is dead again I swear to Chuck I will walk into the desert and self-destruct

notes: Another lovely AU. There’s barely any angst, it’s nicely written and adorable, the kind that cheers you up on a bad day. And as a bonus, it has a flawless Balthazar, which I really appreciate in a fic.

summary: Over a decade after he started down the road of selling himself in exchange for money, Dean Winchester was living in LA, struggling to survive. He had dropped out of school before he got his diploma, his Dad dead and his baby brother, the one he gave everything up for, living it large in San Diego as some hot shot lawyer. Then Castiel Novak came into his life and everything changed.
notes: Fluffy human!AU. Well, as fluffy as it can be with Dean being a hooker. But there’s awkward, precious Castiel.

summary: It’s 1995, and Castiel’s high school years are destined to be difficult: home-schooled until eighth grade, he is awkward, shy, and socially inept. The weird kid with the funny name would rather isolate himself and draw in his sketchbook than deal with the constant bullying he faces every day. Things only get worse in his junior year when he excels in home economics class, leading the captain of the baseball team, Alastair, to start taunting him for being gay.
Then new student Dean Winchester arrives at Flour Bluff High School, sharing many of Castiel’s classes. Castiel has seen his type before — handsome, athletic, arrogant, and sure to be the most popular kid in school. But Castiel eventually learns that he and Dean have more in common than he thought, and they form an unlikely friendship.
notes: Such a sweet and well-written HS-AU.

summary: The rom-com-ish one where Dean hosts a late night radio show, Castiel is a regular listener of his who starts calling one day and ends up calling more often than not and Dean finds himself liking it. This, until one day Castiel calls for not exactly petty reasons (just before Dean’s brother Sam is visiting with his girlfriend for spring break) and things get very, very crowdy at his place. He also doesn’t know it’s just the beginning of it. Also features Gabriel, Chuck, Andy, the Roadhouse crew and a huge amount of music quoted. Especially Bob Dylan.
notes: You can never have enough flawless AUs, right? Well, this is one of them.

summary:Dean’s life at twenty-four makes him feel like he’s forty—he works two jobs to help pay bills for his house and put his genius little brother through private school, and has spent six years (on and off, let’s be honest) working on his mechanical engineering degree at KU. With so much of his life devoted to his family, Dean has little time in his schedule for class and no time for social interaction. Then, while getting his classes together for the fall, he finds himself in a do-or-die situation: He must take his last literature class now, his spring already filled with those left for his major…except that none of the English classes will fit his schedule.
This is how Dean grovels and begs Dr. Castiel Milton to make a special arrangement for him, and Dr. Milton does.

summary: When Sam Winchester prays for his brother, Castiel is finally sent on his very first assignment. But what should be a simple love match turns into much more and Castiel finds himself risking everything to ensure the happiness of his extremely frustrating charge.
notes: There are no words in the English language that could describe how precious and adorable this fic is. 99% of you won’t read it because it’s only PG-13, but the other 1% will be crying tears of joy and puking rainbows by the end of it.
