Let me tell you a story tumblr, about the continuing saga of my very longstanding AU addiction
Okay so remember a couple of months or so back when the entirety of tumblr was falling over themselves about role-swap AUs where Dean was an angel and Cas was the Righteous Man? Welp to be honest I thought I’d go further than that and so I concocted an AU in my head where Jo is the Righteous (Wo)Man, Cas is her very human hunting partner, and Dean and Sam are the angels sent to watch over her.
(Yep this means that Dean-the-Angel pulled Jo out of Hell because shenanigans, shenanigans is why)
I was stuck right in the middle of exams and essays and stuff when this came to me so I couldn’t really elaborate on it much, but I had and still have a million little plotthreads for it swirling around in my head like Cas and Jo’s first hunt together (it was an accident, Jo was sneaking off from Ellen to go hunt, Cas followed her so she wouldn’t get killed and then they kicked arse), right down to the alternate s5-type part of this AU being Cas, Jo, angel!Sam+Dean, and also Adam (because more fics need Adam in and this is a perfect opportunity for him to be in one so in this universe he was one of Azazel’s special children and just roll with it okay these are nebulous thoughts). I have no idea if I’m gonna do more with it tbh but I do have an entire summer free so I might rewatch all of Jo’s and Adam’s episodes and draft some more things out, WHO KNOWS.
Mostly I just majorly enjoy the idea of a universe where Cas and Jo are bros so here have a brofist.
You gotta write more of this, I will PAY YOU to write more of this!!
sob I keep thinking about more things I could do for it so I think I really might in the end
like I thought this morning “oh how would the Last Summer/Heaven+Hell type stuff go I mean where is Anna in all of this??” and then I sort of thought “oh well what if Anna is still a fallen angel like in canon but the family she fell into is like some cousin or something to Cas’s family in this ‘verse so it’s kind of like WAIT WHOOOOAAAA???” and then when she gets her grace back she is on this alternate Team Free Will too and everything is beautiful
I don’t even know, my brain is out of control
