Glad you had a great day! I’m excited for you!

Thanks so much, my dear!!  I’m still really nervous about everything (and I will be for the entire probationary period, lol!), but I think it’s going to be good!

So today was my first day at the new job!  It went well, I was kind of nervous, but everyone was really nice and friendly, so I’m hopeful that it’s going to be good.  I’m a bit concerned, because a couple of people have already approached me about doing translations and I’m very worried my French level won’t be good enough.  Like, for what they initially described to me that they needed for the position, my French is definitely good enough, but if they want me to be doing full and lengthy translations on a regular basis, I’m a bit worried.  But I think it’ll be alright.  

It’s kind of strange though, it’s been so long since I’ve had enough work to do that I kind of forgot what it felt like to actually work a whole day instead of having maybe 2 hours of work to do and then slacking off for 5 hours (I seriously hadn’t had enough work for months!).  It’s way harder than I remembered!  And I won’t have Fridays off anymore, either, I’m really going to miss my 3-day weekends!

We also picked up the keys to our new apartment today and dropped off a few bags at our new place.  We’ll be moving fully on Saturday and until then are staying at our old place, but the new apartment is absolutely gorgeous!  It’s going to be a great place to live, it’s so spacious and modern and has great amenities, I can’t wait until next week!

I also updated my meta masterpost  tonight, so I’m feeling like today’s been a very successful day!

Claire looks at Dean’s loose Boston shirt, which is usually tight enough on him that he only wears it to work on the Impala out back, and the rolled-up hems of his jeans. She crosses her arms. “I don’t think so.”

Dean’s shoulders hunch. “What?” he says, defensive.

Behind him, Cas has a fierce Claire, your adopted stepfather figure is in a delicate emotional state right now, stand down expression burning behind his reading glasses.

Claire ignores it.

"You cannot go to your first day of school looking like Dursley-Era Harry Potter,” she says. “As your temporary faux older sister, I can’t allow it.”

(In which Dean gets de-aged by a spell, freaks out, and runs for the hills. Eventually, he comes back and enrolls in high school with Emma and Claire. He hates it, except for how he doesn’t.)

This is a domestic fic that goes AU after 7.13, incorporating elements of S8 and S9, that can be read alone or as part of the His Fucking Kids universe.

Day One: I Think I'm Gonna Like It Here Introduction of the character Gadreel

"This is Dean Winchester and I need your help."

After so many years locked up in Heavens prison, you could think Gadreel just wanted to leave everything behind - being as far away from any possible trouble as he can be. After so many years of being tortured, who would blame him? But he still choose to pick up the original mission; protecting those who would not and cannot protect themselves. The humans.

Somewhere along the way most angels seemed to have forgotten why they were put there in the first place - Gadreel didn’t.

I love that point, that Gadreel actually believes in the original mission, to protect humans, but I wonder if he remembers it so well because of a much darker reason.  He knows the absolute worst that Heaven has become, because he suffered from their eons of torture, he knows that many of the angels have become “agents of wrath,” because he was at the hands.  Every day he was tortured by the angels broken by God’s departure (an event presumed to have been triggered by his failure to protect humans from Lucifer’s influence), angels who had lost their way, their goal, and he would have been reminded of their, and his own, failure in the mission given to them by God.

After those millennia of torture, once he was freed, he clung to the hope of redemption.  And he sought that redemption by trying to succeed in the mission of compassion, of protection.  And though he fails to protect humanity because of Metatron’s manipulation and because of his own fear, but he sought redemption in his final moments, giving his life to allow Castiel a chance to stop Metatron and finally put the angels back on the path of God’s mission.

i’m also super curious as to how he heard of Dean and Cas in Heaven’s dungeon and how he came to believe in them if you can take that statement at face value I’m not sure but assuming that you can it’s interesting (x)

I assume angel radio was probably still available in prison unless specifically blocked, so he’d have heard everything from “Dean Winchester is saved” as that was broadcast to every angel, wasn’t it?… If I was locked up possibly for all of eternity but could hear the angels gossiping about Castiel’s dubious loyalty, the insufferable vessel of Michael who refused to do what he was told, and the unfolding drama of the apocalypse, I’d basically never stop listening and it would be my soap opera of choice. :P Probably the moment he heard the open-ended prayer he was like “Oh my god it’s that guy I HAVE TO MEET HIM.”

We never really hear Gadreel’s opinion on the apocalypse as far as I remember but his hard-wired “protect humanity” attitude would have presumably had him quietly rooting for the one angel that was flaunting the orders of Heaven, for reasons more than just having an obvious problem with Heaven in general. I am very sad he didn’t get to spend more time with Cas, because they’re obvious ideal friends. Their tiny amount of interaction at the end of the season was great… *sighs forever about Gadreel*

I think I am in love with the idea of the story of Dean and Castiel being Gadreel’s soap opera, lol!  Like Abner and Gadreel whispering to each other what they’d heard about Castiel and Dean, their story giving them hope that there were others fighting to protect humanity and maybe change Heaven and free them (or at least stop the abuse).  Maybe Abner was who else he was referring to when he said, “Believe it or not, some of us still do believe in our mission. And that means we believe in Castiel…and you.”

I kind of assumed that Gadreel wouldn’t have access to angel radio in prison (after all, you wouldn’t want the traitors to have access to general communications and information like that), but I did kind of think maybe that his wardens wouldn’t have cared much if Gadreel overheard their own conversations, after all, he was well and truly imprisoned.  I also wondered if maybe there were angels imprisoned by Raphael who had supported Castiel that told Gadreel about Dean and Cas.

Ugh, yes, Gadreel and Cas could have been great friends, if he hadn’t been so afraid of being rejected because of his mistakes at the Garden of Eden.  I was just saying to my husband last night when we re-watched 9x01 that I wished Gadreel had been honest with everyone from the beginning.  Could you imagine, him and Cas getting to know each other (because if he’d been honest, he wouldn’t have made Dean kick Cas out of the bunker) and redeeming each other (Cas by helping a broken and lost angel, Gadreel by finding meaning through helping protect people and understanding humanity through what Cas could teach him)?  A friendship between Cas and Gadreel would probably have made Gadreel a lot less likely to fall for Metatron’s manipulations.

*Sighs about Gadreel* *Sighs also about the tragic stories of Abner and Gadreel*
