a little “dean taking care of sick fallen!cas” ficlet for reem. happy birthday, babe! <3
The three of them are driving to a vic’s house to talk to the family, in the middle of goddamn nowhere by the looks of it when the world decides to make their lives a little more difficult and it starts to pour like the sky is trying to drown them out. And to make matters worse, the house turns out to be somewhere past a hike through the woods.
Dean tries to convince Cas to stay in the Impala but Cas isn’t having any of it. Not like Dean isn’t used to it. Since he became human, he’s been insisting on doing everything he can to be useful to them. He wants to tell Cas that just having him around is good enough for him, but he can tell that Cas needs this, needs to feel useful, so he lets him. Most of the time.
“Stay here and keep a lookout. We gotta go out past the woods and it’s pouring out. I don’t need you getting sick on us.”
“Cas, we can’t take all the kittens home. I’m allergic; I’ll die and it will all be because you wanted twelve stupid cats!”
“They need a home, Dean! They cannot stay here!”
Sam knew better than to get involved. Dean and Castiel had their own way of solving these problems. And really, Cas was right. The kittens needed a home and the bunker was more than big enough to house a pet. And Dean would rather be eaten alive than have a dog, so a cat was as good as it was gonna get. Besides, Dean was exaggerating. His allergies weren’t that bad.
“Cas, we aren’t getting a kitten and that’s final!”
for my sweet-but-never-smiles anon
Sam is such a dick. Yeah, ok, Dean may have started this prank war, but Jesus Christ. Sam didn’t have to be so goddamn good at it.
And really, it wasn’t a problem. Sam put bleach in Dean’s shampoo, but Dean got Cas to mojo Sam’s eyebrows off. And yeah, all of Dean’s boxers got replaced with g-strings, but Sam couldn’t drink coffee for a week after Dean replaced Sam’s organic sugar with rock salt. So hey.
But it’s all fun and games until someone gets hurt. Especially when that someone is the Impala.
