Summary: Castiel didn’t die. Instead, the Leviathans stashed him away until they had a use for him. Castiel is brought back to Dean by angels and he doesn’t know how to react. Dean knows that something bad happened to Castiel while he was away, but Castiel won’t tell anyone. Dean has to figure it out so he can help a friend that he wasn’t there for before and also find a way to stop the Leviathans. Especially with Castiel’s return comes the reveal of the Leviathan’s plan.
Author’s Note: I feel like I have a lot to say about this fic, but I’ll keep it short. First, I want to thank annachuu and dazedrose for providing all of the beautiful artwork for this monster of a fic. You two were great to work with. Second, I want to thank the mods at dc_dystopia for putting on this event. It gave me the inspiration to finish a fic I started years ago.
This fic didn’t turn out as dark as I thought it would be, but I was able to tell the story I wanted to tell. I’ve never written anything of this magnitude. It was a test to just sit and force myself to finish this fic even when I just wanted to put it out of my mind.
Don’t forget to visit the artists' pages and leave them a lot of praise!
I hope that you all enjoy everything we did to put this all together.
