Summary: ”Castiel, this is Detective Winchester,” Bobby’s saying, voice rough and real. It’s a distraction, although a brief one, the angel glancing at him before studying Dean again with that same silent intensity. “He’ll be on the Circle Murders too.”
OMG, the world building in this fic is just amazing - bleak universe where supernatural is just as natural as everything else and everybody knows it. People wear protection tattoos and are tested with silver and holy water on regular bases, sigils and wards protect buildings, demons are evil and strong and angels are… well, Castiel. The story is told from Dean’s POV and Cas’ POV and has very nice juxtaposition between human desperation dealing with supernatural beings and angel’s bewilderment about everything human. Castiel really comes across as this ageless, fierce warrior coming to terms with his new understandings, disobeying his orders and being total BAMF while Dean has to deal with his feelings for a supernatural being.
I just wish there would be more stories set in this universe or this story would go on much longer; it is such a brilliant idea to be left unused.
