Why You Should Read This: I just found this gem of a story a few days ago and was entranced by it. This story is set in early season 5 when Dean, Sam and Castiel are frantically searching for a way to kill the devil. As the world begins to fall into chaos around them, the team finds themselves at odds when Sam thinks he had found a lead on the Colt pistol, and Dean receives a frantic call from his one time lover Lisa begging for his help. The choices they make in that moment change their lives drastically. Castiel ever loyal to Dean had made his choice long ago and together the two of them find that winning the war doesn’t come without cost, but the price, while high might have been worth it for the life they now share. The characterization is spot on for all the characters. Castiel’s patience as he waits for Dean to get that he really is loved and wanted is lovely.
