My apologies for the exceedingly late posting, and for the quality of the finished product. Writing this was like pulling teeth, for reasons I can't quite figure out. You should go check out the artwork by amberdreams
right over here
. She's done quite a few lovely pieces and deserves your praise.
Beta thanks go to the fantastic sycophantastic
, who both put up with a lot of stalling and whining from me every time this story didn't go the way I wanted it to.Title:
Scheherazade of the Super EightAuthor: pyrebiArtist: amberdreamsPairing(s):
Extremely mild Dean/Castiel.Rating:
Fairytale-style madness and unrealistically quick fixes, forced imprisonment, general malice, one bout of non-lethal violence, offscreen deaths.Notes:
Goes massively AU after mid-s6; loosely based on the frame tale of One Thousand and One Nights
Dean doesn't know why angels keep recruiting him for impossible tasks. But they do, and now he's apparently the last chance heaven has--not only against Raphael, but against a dangerously unhinged Castiel. Oh yeah, and he has to do it all from the confines of a 10'x16' motel room that doesn't even exist.
