Title: Wide Awake and Dreaming
Pairing: Dean/Castiel
Rating: PG-13
Word count: 254
Notes: Mildest of spoilers through "In the Beginning..." For the lovely zelda_zee, who also beta'd. :)



The angel's handprint -- stark and red against pale skin -- still burns on Dean's shoulder where Castiel gripped him tight and raised him up. He brushes his own hand over the angel's mark, feeling how the blood throbs differently there.

Castiel does not lay a hand on him casually, not when a mere touch can pull Dean from the pit of hell or bend time, sending Dean back before he even existed.

The angel says little to Dean, only hints at why he bothered to save him, what he wants with him. But in Dean's dreams, the angel shows him things, whispers everything he needs to know, wants to know

Dean wakes with flashes of red behind his eyes, the impression of wings beating rapidly around him. There is only one real difference between Castiel by his side and Castiel in his head, only one real way to know if he is dreaming or awake.

In his dreams, Castiel can touch him.

The angel places his outspread palm on Dean's bare skin and there is a blinding flash of light, the raised imprint of his hand lingering long after he and Dean pull apart. His lips leave marks like a sunburn up and down Dean's back, each one causing something that's not quite pain, but deeper than pleasure.

When Dean wakes, the marks have disappeared, and so has Castiel. He's only dreamed that the angel was here. But when Dean runs his hands over every place the angel touched him, he shivers, remembering.

For some reason I really liked all the red in this..the handprint, blood, the flashes of hell.

This was beautiful - a poetic feel. Poor Dean!

What I liked about this was the lushness of the description, and yes, that contibuted to making this: But when Dean runs his hands over every place the angel touched him, he shivers, remembering.</i? so brain meltingly good.

Thats hot. *fans self and blows steam away from computer* Poor Dean indeed. That was a very nice picture you painted in my mind- But its too bad is can't have been when he was awake. Well at least he has his dreams. XD Maybe you can share one of his more descriptive dreams with us? *hopeful grin*

Oh, thank you! :) (I wanted to leave it a bit ambiguous whether it really happened -- since angels do have a lot of secret powers and could easily insinuate himself into Dean's dreams, I think.)

And I was just dipping my toe in here but I would love to write this pairing again. Thanks so much!

It would be interesting to find out if Castiel can manipulate Dean's dreams. The last episodes beginning definitely leaves that open to speculation. How did he know that Dean was dreaming anything?
So I could see how his angel powers can work in that way. But shame on the kinky angel for using his power to give Dean erotic dreams like that.
My personal opinion is that since Castiel doesn't or can't really touch Dean while awake, the watching him sleep and the dream touching should be allowed. So I guess he found a way around any laws and possible punishments.
*cheers Castiel on* You get 'em good- for all the fangirls.
Looking forward to more on this pairing from you then.
Can I friend you to make it easier to find your stuff?

Yes, he sure did! ;)

And yes, please go ahead and friend. It's pretty Lost-centric around my LJ most of the time, but now that Supernatural's back, and kicking ass, well... :)

This was gorgeous; I loved the imagery, and the idea of the flashes of red-dream are of Castiel, not hell, is a nice touch.

Lol, I've been gone awhile, huh? Not too bad.

Just popped online and saw the internet has exploded with Jared and Jensen living together and I'm like :oO I must start paying more attention to the internets... now the SPN is back on, and it's not long until Lost, I feel like I'm missing out on all the fun!

Speaks Volumes of Supenatural subtext

You're writing is enthralling - captured the complexity and even the underlying subtext of their unique relationship. Even brought out this deeper connection between the two (that could be viewed as sensual) but something so much more involved.

Re: Speaks Volumes of Supenatural subtext
Oh, thanks so much! :) I was going for something sensual here but also, perhaps, a bit spiritual. Thanks for the comment!
