And misslucyjane has the best SPN fic, you guys.
I used to think I was sent to save you, but I think you are the one saving me.
I do, in fact, have tears in my eyes and I am not ashamed, okay? It was just...beautiful. Cas is losing everything of himself and it is so heartbreaking and amazingly well-written and then Dean is just...there. Like, that's all he can do for Cas is just be there and it's lovely.
And Sam and Dean, the way they interacted with each other, was so perfectly Sam and Dean in this and so perfectly brothers. Even Sam and Cas' relationship in this is just right. And the end just...it's not necessarily a happy ending but it's not necessarily a sad ending - it's just their lives.
I'll stop blabbering now and give you the place to read it.
