Summary: Wherein Dean makes a hefty living as a tattoo artist who owns the space next to Gabriel’s cafe. Sam attends the local university. When Gabe’s cousin comes to live with him while starting grad school at Sam’s university, Dean thinks for sure that all his negative karma’s coming to bite him in the ass because Cas clearly has a thing for Sam. No one would ever choose him over Sam. That’s just logic.
This is such a specific and different verse that sounds like it shouldn’t work, but it really, really does. I literally didn’t put this down once, and I just love how everything played together so nicely.
The only, teensy thing was the fact that, occasionally, a paragraph would run into the next and there would be too little definition of what exactly was happenning for a sentence or two. Nevertheless, every else was damn near perfect; I’ve never had any interest in tattoos before, and I’ve certainly never read a tattoo fic, but this has piqued my interest.
This is just one of thise pieces where the author has so much experience with the ‘theme’, and it’s so well-researched that every single detail is perfectly credible, and I found it easy to lose myself in it without having to worry about believability. All the drunk scenes we so very perfect and fluffy, and the ending! A perfect way to finalise the story (although I do highly reccommend the drabble-y timestamps linked in the concluding author’s notes). An all-round good-un.
