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!

Thank you so much! Glad you liked all the red. :)

This is serious teasing you doing here, you know. You've just got me all excited and now I have to start searching for more, so....more of that, please? ;)

*waits and pouts a bit*

Oh, sorry, hon! :) If you're looking for crazy angel sex (TM, zelda_zee), I suggest you check out her Dean/Castiel fic, if you haven't already read it: An Angel Close By Me

Thanks so much! I'm loving Castiel so far. What a great addition to the cast and now I can read SPN slash. Yaaay!

Such a lovely ficlet! So evocative! I hope you decide to write more of this pairing.

You should post this at deancastiel or spn_castiel.

Thanks so much for the encouragement with this one! And I already joined spn_castiel in my search for icons so perhaps I'll post there. Thank you! :)

Oooh, that was so lovely and dark. I love all of the red imagery, it makes it feel all the more sensuous and menacing. I love it!

Beautiful! :)

The intensity in this is so refined... it's incredibly powerful.
Oct. 5th, 2008 03:37 am (UTC)
Thank you, darling! I had just a little idea that wouldn't leave me alone. :)

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.
Oct. 5th, 2008 03:38 am (UTC)
Oh, thank you! So glad you liked it. :)
Oct. 4th, 2008 02:10 pm (UTC)
Well done! Bravo!
Oct. 5th, 2008 03:55 am (UTC)
Thank you! And wow, your icon is gorgeous!

Re: can you roofie an angel?
can you roofie an angel?

Hee, if anyone can, it would be Dean! Very glad to have induced shivers. :)

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*
Oct. 5th, 2008 03:59 am (UTC)
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!
