A very small and hastily-written Lisa & Castiel ficlet, for dotfic who reminded me how nice it would be to see the two of them bonding (gen).

It was kind of like having coffee with a girlfriend. That is, if your girlfriend happened to be an unseen, more-or-less male-identified celestial presence. And if you were usually drinking herbal tea instead of coffee because your tolerance for caffeine wasn’t what it used to be. In fact, it was probably more like what Lisa’s mother—who used to commiserate with Jesus over every second cup of joe—would have called praying. But it wasn’t Lisa’s fault that the only person in the universe who could understand the kinds of things she had to put up with wasn’t really a person at all.

“He did it again last night,” she’d sigh, warming her hands on the mug. “He thinks that if he gives me that sexy smile and kisses me behind the ear, I’m gonna forgive him for forgetting to buy soy milk. For the third time this week.”

The tea would ripple a little in the cup, which Lisa always took to be the angelic equivalent of I hear you, baby, I hear you.

“And I did. Of course I did. ‘Cause even after all this time, that ear-kiss thing he does just makes me crazy.”

Lisa thought she could sense the tiniest disturbance in the air, like someone saying, “That’s right girlfriend, testify—we’ve all been there.”

“And I forgot what it’s like to have a full-grown man in the house.” She’d shake her head in irritation. “The amount of food he can go through. The socks. The toilet seat.”

The invisible presence always seemed a little mystified by that one. The air would still with confusion.

“But then the other week, he brought me breakfast in bed for my birthday. Him and Ben together. They’d made eggs, and gone all the way across town for this multi-grain bread I like from this one bakery. They were so proud. And they couldn’t understand why I was crying. You don’t like the eggs? Dean kept saying, did we get the wrong kind of bread? But it was just—“ Lisa sniffed. “It’s just—he tries so hard, you know?”

And then, the angel wasn’t in the air around her anymore. He—it—whatever force he represented—was inside her instead. A warm wash of compassion, soft as wings and twice as strong, holding her close.

  • Awwww
  • :-D Coooool!!!

    er. you are going to write more in this 'verse, aren't you? *iz hopeful*
    • *g* Glad you enjoyed!

      Maybe? The other one, the h/c one, started life as a much, uh, bouncier threesome fic, but got waylaid by holiday angst. I might go back to that sometime. But I do also love the idea of Lisa and Castiel bitching about how impossible Dean can be, while also being completely besotted by him :)
  • Yeeeeeeees. :D :D :D Aw, thank you for writing this.
    • You're very welcome--glad you enjoyed! Thanks for reminding me how fun it would be to get the two of them together :)
  • Ha! It's deeply amusing that Lisa and Castiel seem to see Dean as a puppy - adorable and dumb, but so earnest!
  • Love their perspective on Dean! Very original, by the way. :)
    • Glad you enjoyed it! I feel like Lisa would have needed someone to talk to about the domestic adjustments of having Dean in the house :)

      Thanks for reading!

    • Thanks, hon! And the toilet seat thing is annoying, no matter how gorgeous the guy is ;)

      Glad you enjoyed it!
  • OK that made me tear up a bit. I think I'm still on my family/holiday emotional high or something.

    Lisa-Cas bonding over Dean fics are the best way to star the New Year. Thanks.

    • The holidays are such an emotional wringer--I almost cried when I saw my little cockatiel last night, after only being away for the weekend--

      Glad you enjoyed this, tho'--I kind of love to think about them bonding!
  • Aww, this is adorable. I like the peek at how Lisa had to adjust to Dean in her life -- it wasn't just Dean making adjustments. And Castiel being her confidant is perfect because Dean puzzles and frustrates him probably just as much as Lisa at times.
    • I'm so glad you enjoyed it! I liked the idea of Lisa needing a confidant to commiserate about Dean with--and somehow she seems to have more in common with Cas than Sam...

      Thanks for reading and commenting!
  • This is so adorable! I love how you write Lisa's intepretation of Cas' responses.
  • WHAT


    This is entirely too precious.
  • This is just precious.

  • Awwwww!!! Love this idea.
    • I'm so glad you enjoyed it! I kind of love the idea of Cas and Lisa bitching about Dean but being totally besotted with him at the same time...

      thanks for reading!
