SUMMARY: "Cas wonders, as he often does, if he should tell Sam that he knows what it really is that he needs. He decides that tonight, after all these years, he finally will. They’re not getting any younger, after all, and he’s mainly stayed out of it because he didn’t truly believe that two people so singularly and utterly devoted could be that stubborn and obtuse. It’s maddening, and it almost seems purposeful, how they ignore each others’ signals, like they each have that secret locked down so tight (out of shame, probably, or guilt), each other’s light can’t get through. It’s tragic, almost, if he’s being completely honest." (Given by the author.)
NOTES: Cas's POV, Sam's POV

Excerpt:
Dean tips his head back to stare at him, and Sam, for the millionth time, thinks god, your eyes, your mouth, but for the first time, he lets Dean see it, right there, all those love letters written behind his eyes. Sam throws the curtains wide open to let Dean’s light in. So Dean can see everything. And he's not scared anymore.


WHY I LIKE THAT FIC:
Ah, I love fics that fill in the blanks of an episode. This is a coda to 12x11, where Dean slowly loses his memory and forgets Sam altogether. Cas can't handle these two aching so much so he helps ease their anxiety and makes the way free for a much needed confrontation. It is wonderful, emotional, angsty, but has a very happy ending. Just as I like it. A read well worth your time!
