Title: Play My Song
Genre: Angst, character death (non-canon), fallen!Castiel
Warnings: discussion of life threatening diseases, some unpleasant descriptions, swearing, possibly ideologically sensitive.
Summary: Two years after the world doesn't end, Dean and Castiel's life strikes tragedy once again. The ex-angel falls victim to a life threatening disease, and Dean must come to terms that a guardian angel can't always be there for you.
A/N: "To Where You Are" belongs to Josh Groban, Castiel and Dean belong to Kripke, and my own twisted story comes from me. Who'da thunk?? Anyway, this is a drama, a very sad drama. Please don't kill me for this, and if you cry, please forgive me. COMMENTS ARE LOVE!!!
"Mr. Winchester "
"Yeah Doc? How is he holding up?"
"We have him resting as of right now, Dean, but there is something I need to discuss with you "
"Dean, we did a full analysis of his condition, and
Face PawCalibri had always been a very shy little girl, and it made me worry about her. She never spoke much in the house, never interacted much with the neighbors' kids, and later on I was even told by some teachers that she rarely ever participated in class. "It's not that she doesn't know the answer," would always be how they start. "It's just that she seems so shy." Even with that silence, though, she managed to have one good friend named Bethany who was the exact opposite of her. Loud, charming, and social, she tried almost as hard as I did to get Calibri to talk to people without much success. Most of my friends had blamed it on the divorce, but I wasn't left totally convinced. After all, she seemed this quiet even while her mother and I were still on good terms. When I asked her about it she told me she just didn't like people, which for me as her father was not a very comforting thing to hear.Face Paw4 years ago in Short Stories More Like This

when I stretch and sigh; I dream of you.
I vow to forget, lock my heart up in my sleep
I turn over a new leaf, I turn over -
and here you are again!
Your hands in my hair, your nose at my temple -
and when you exhale my name
and my poor heart cringes under the strain of love,
I turn over, turn over a new leaf, and dream of you.

Heads is yes and tails is no.
But what question to ask? Do I ask, "Should I stay?" Or do I ask, "Should I go?"
Drat! Am I asking the wrong question all together?
Maybe I should ask, "Can he ever love me?" Or should the question be, "Do I love him enough to wait and see?"
Actually, that last one I know. Yes, I do or I wouldn't be agonizing over these damn questions. Won't waste a flip on that one.
I swear the face on this quarter is mocking me. He smirks like he knows the answer and just won't share. If he could see the consternation in my expression maybe it would wipe that look right off his smug little face.
Forget it! Chocolate solves everything. Take this smug little fellow to the vending machine with a few of his little buddies. I'll show him what I think of his lack of assistance!
Now, do I want A3 or B4? Dammit!

Fifty-seven octaves below middle C, hundreds of thousands of tiny stars with little worlds trailing atmospheres in elliptical orbits. Double-star systems, triple-star, more; planets, civilisations, dark matter, tangible matter, all circling, swarming, humming together in one enormous note, not bumping together but carrying a wave from the centre of their island universe, expanding out into space
Sound cannot exist in a vacuum. This is a widely known fact. And space is a vacuum, sure. But only when you look at it from here, from our tiny little world. Close your eyes, zoom out, and look at the celestial spheres from their view; and space isn't so thin after all. Close your eyes, zoom in, and even our dense atmosphere is just atoms in a vacuum of their own. Sound as we know it, sure, that doesn't exist outside our little stardust orb. It's too small, too fragil

With half-closed eyes and her head low, she put her hands in her pockets and started back in the direction she came from. I tried getting her attention by purposely disturbing a few leaves. She was supposed to investigate the noise so I could get on with my routine. Instead she ignores my ploy and walks away.
How dare she? As the girl continued, avoiding stepping on the many scattered leaves, I wonder if I should simply cut her off and end this now. She would deserve it after being, in a sense, rude. However, the manner in which she walked showed she wasn’t in the mood right now. Hmph. Very well. I will simply watch and wait for now. Should she return I will deal her then, but this looks to be a bad time.
She seems to have enough on her mind already.

Then it takes another hour

The professor always arrives seven
minutes before class begins.
He sits on the left side
while discourse flows easily among
the discordant voices.
The exchange rate on ideas
is ten seconds of silence for a halting opinion,
unsure of itself,
but backed up with a quoted passage
from page one twenty-three, read aloud then cut off -
contradicted by a second opinion.
The first voice breathes easy;
the spotlight eyes are elsewhere.
In the midst of interrupt,
the professor bends one knee
up to his chair, fixing
the loose knot of an old pair of loafers.
He ties a new knot without looking,
caught up in the dialogue
of his charges and finishes tightening
the strings as he raises his voice,
steering the dialouge back
to the topic at hand.

The Source of Fear (Slenderman Fanfic) - Chapter 1Newly fallen leaves lay on the muddy ground. There was no wind to disturb them, so they stayed dormant for the time being. The sodden bark of the trees peeled slightly from yesterday’s rain, revealing the shiny light-colored wood beneath. A light mist hung in the air while the warm, smoky scent of a distant fireplace tainted it. And the cold of early autumn kept the birds and other wildlife tucked in their nests, quiet and calm. Everything seemed so peaceful. But…I know…the world is still a cruel place.The Source of Fear (Slenderman Fanfic) - Chapter 11 year ago in General Fiction More Like This
On account of the events that took place earlier this year, about mid spring, I now live in a big house, alone at seventeen. I shouldn’t have needed to worry about living on my own for another full year, but that decision was stolen from me by the man I used to call ‘Dad’. He didn’t kick me out, oh no, that’s something I actually would have preferred over what he really did. A little thing the police like to call a

I have my inner demons.
And they are tearing me apart.
Through my rib cage,
They are eating away my heart.
I have you,holding me tight.
You can feel the pulse of my soul
I am afraid,save me.
Make those evil creatures go.
I have monsters under my bed.
They whisper only bullshit in my ear.
Their voices are so quiet for others,
But so loud for me to hear.
I feel like losing my balance,
I will fall soon,
I wonder,did Lucifer
Have his inner demons,too.
I trust them,
And they say you'll leave.
It's like they want to kill.
But you caught my body,
You're the one with my soul's key.
With the color of my artery's blood
on your body,you said to me:
"Don't talk to monsters under your bed,
Cause they don't like us at all.
Sleep,I am here,my love.
They don't know what we know."

I'll warn you upfront: this isn't glamorous.
At first, I thought I was in a car or on a plane. I woke up in an uncomfortable chair with an incredible headache and no idea where I was. My eyes slowly adjusted to the sickly yellow light, and I saw a ceiling with water damage. I didn't recognize it. I smelled mildew and smoke, which would've startled me if not for the headache.
I started to rub my head, but I couldn't move my hand. I looked down, and my wrist was stuck in something. Actually both wrists. And ankles. I didn't like where this was going.
Ugly laughter erupted from across the room. "About time you came around!" someone shouted. I rolled my heavy head to the left and saw Seth and Nate. They were sitting on an unmade bed, smoking.
Seth was not one of my favorite people. He worked at a bar I avoided, and he was why. He and I went back ten years, so we knew a lot of the same people. Like Nate.
Nate wasn't a bad guy, or at least wasn't till recently. He was lonesome and impression

You look up, your eyes falling on the solid form of a human body nearby, the voice issuing from it soft and earnest. "It is just like regenerating."
You look down, figiting as the artificial lights blink past you, the empty bus taking you back to what is supposed to be home. "How did you know?" You ask, not meeting his eyes.
"I know the look. The feeling of- loss. The aprehension of what's ahead. An entire new world to explore- like starting over."
You hear a soft rustle of clothing as he moves from where he's sitting across the bus to sit next to you, waiting patiently until you are ready to talk. You've given up on guessing how he gets around so well, after all, he didn't park the TARDIS on the bus, and you just accept his presence, grateful that you and the lonely bus driver aren't the only ones out in the middle of the night.

Every year between the ages of ten and eighteen, I sent a letter to NASA. I told them a little bit about myself, the same general description year after year, and always insisted that despite my medical condition, I would one day love to sail through the stars. My dream was to be out there in the universal abyss, exploring every unknown corner until we knew all that we could.
Art would taunt, “Sick kids don’t go to space” before Mom slapped the back of his shoulder with a spatula.
NASA was as nice as they could be, but the bottom line was that we all knew I couldn’t do it. The spaceship would need to have extra space just for the amount of medication and equipment I’d have to bring along, and that was if I could even survive the zero-gravity environment. Whoever wrote the responses encouraged me to keep dreaming, and boasted about donations the association made to various sickle cell charities.

Mama coos as she sews her daughter's lips shut.
The little girl nods and lies still in her bed,
"Daddy loves you."
Daddy murmurs as he cuts out his daughter's heart.
The little girl nods and presses her favorite blanket close,
"Sister loves you."
Sister states as she cuts off her sister's legs.
The little girl nods and sleeps away.
But the morning brings to light all that's happened
What she has sacrificed to make others happy
And the little girl cannot ignore it.
But, she reasons, it is better to be kind
Then to be greedy.
So she passes the effect of blood loss off as exhaustion
The feeling of emptiness as over-active hormones
And again closes her eyes
To wait for a sense of contentment,
She was still waiting when a voice caught her attention.
She resisted opening her eyes
Instead only listening to the words he spoke,
And though the events he told about drew questions to her lips
The little girl could not say a word.
He seemed to understand this,
For he faithfully vi

The Source of Fear Chapter 6Well…as painful as it was, I told them just about everything. But I left out the detail about me throwing the axe and probably hurting whoever it was I saw in the trees because they didn’t need to know I could snap at any second. Right now I’m waiting for them to respond. They haven’t posted anything for the last ten minutes, and I’m anxiously wondering if I scared them off or they just don’t know what to say. Honestly, if I were them, I wouldn’t know what to say to me either. There’s nothing to say that would make me feel better.The Source of Fear Chapter 61 year ago in General Fiction More Like This

TheDarkMask: ….Damn… Is that true???
The Source of Fear Chapter 5Slowly, I stepped away from the tree I hid behind and examined the one nearby that had been impaled by the axe the girl had thrown. It was small enough the axe nearly chopped it in half, and the point of impact seems to have splintered in numerous directions. Hm. I’m glad I wasn’t in the path long enough to obtain that kind of damage. Though, in hindsight, I was the one who had succumbed to the curiosity which led to my impatience.The Source of Fear Chapter 51 year ago in General Fiction More Like This
When she first came outside, I thought she had seen me. But when she displayed no reaction I knew I was mistaken, so I stayed put just behind the tree line. I hadn’t expected her to throw the axe, and certainly not with such an amount of force and speed so my reflexes were somewhat paused. I was only able to move out of the way fast enough to avoid being dealt serious injuries, but the arm of my suit was cut by the spinning blade as it passed. As irritat

Interestingly, I stayed asleep the rest of the night and woke up at 7 a.m. feeling completely refreshed. How unusual…normally I wake up every hour or so and go back to sleep as soon as morning comes… Nonetheless, since I’m wide awake, I might as well get up. Slowly, I roll away from the wall and sit up. After a moment I notice how cold it is in the room and glance out the basement window. There’s a light frost on the ground. It must have been pretty cold last night to cause that. I hope it doesn’t start snowing within the next couple months. The idea of trudging home in the snow with freezing cold ankles doesn’t sit well with me.
For a minute or two I remain sitting to clear my head of the tired haze. Then I jump to my feet and walk to the bathroom to take a shower. I turn on the radio to a coun

please do not take this suggestion as an ugly snide.
I am Christian, but I am sure you know that,
because throughout my poetry, I make this a fact.
And looking back, I've realized a mistake,
as a one sided position I have seemed to take.
I preach tolerance on my side, from a Christian stance,
and remain unaware that you too maliciously advance.
Like some Christians, you hate, you're ugly and cruel,
you judge without knowing, and are quick to assume,
that we want you all dead, and wish you to hell,
you jump to conclusions at the ring of a bell.
To you we're just zealots, we're all just the same,
and you make it a point to insult our holy name.
I think it funny how you want our respect,
yet some of you proclaim our religion to be a simple jest.
And yes we have radicals, just like you,
but I think it's time we discern the difference, don't you?
To not like does not mean to hate, nor does it mean to despise,
to put it in words, we simply just don't
