Fanfic Wednesday: Heaven’s Most Wanted (NSFW)

Castiel

Title: Heaven’s Most Wanted

Author: elliex

Pairing: Castiel/Dean Winchester

Word Count: 133,396 (WIP)

Warnings: NSFW, Better than a fix-it fic

Premise:

The author’s description: The heavenly fallout changes everything in the Winchesters’ world. It takes Castiel away from Dean and Sam (especially Dean). Castiel is dealing with the loss of his grace, the haunting memories of what he’s done, being hunted by angels, the separation from his friends, and his feelings for Dean. He’s drawn back to the Winchesters despite his desire to protect Dean and Sam from the heavenly wrath his choices have provoked. Sam is recovering from the trials, and Dean is, as always, a powder keg of anger, loyalty, and love.

Once Dean and Cas are reunited, they and Sam (along with Charlie, Kevin, and others) work together to figure out how to navigate a world where angels and demons are running amok.

Author’s note: I started writing this before the S09 premiere. The timeline takes select S09 events into account yet also takes extreme liberties. Other divergences include there being a little more to the night before the Leviathan attack, after Dean tells Cas he’d rather have him “cursed or not,” than we had the pleasure of seeing, and I totally read between the destiel lines in S08. Also, I really try to keep the bamf balance with Dean/Cas.

My Thoughts:

Season 9 scarred me. As in, I haven’t watched the show or listened to my SPN soundtrack since the finale and have stopped reading canon D/C fanfic because it hurts too muchThat being said, this epic 133k and counting story by elliex brings me joy. I actually read it as I watched S9 and must say, often enjoyed the new chapters better than the new episodes. This is no season 9 fix-it fic. No, this author took the characters we love and pieced together a compelling, thoughtful, honest exploration of the Supernatural universe. The Dean and Cas love story is central yet it isn’t over powering or ill fit. There are demons, witty dialogue and many of the same themes of S9, but with the strength of the Winchesters’ relationship to their friends and each other a central part of the story. A definite balm to the pain of S9, as in, I am hoping the boys get a happy ending this time!
