Love Is by vikki
tags: Cas!whump, violence, language, hurt/comfort, bamf!Cas, Cas POV
pairings/characters: Zachariah, Castiel, Dean
authors summary: Missing scene/coda for 5.04. Castiel retrieves the Impala; Zachariah is waiting for him.
My note: Short, but she’s got lovely metaphors and a good writing style.
Bratishka: Little Brother
Bratishka: Little Brother by Valyria
tags: Law Enforcement AU, Russian Mafia, Tattooed!Castiel, Cas!Whump, Implied/Referenced Torture, Hurt/Comfort, Kidnapping, Temporary Character Death, Blow Jobs, Michael Lucifer and Anna have russian names, world’s most unsexy shower, Happy Ending
pairings/characters: Detective!Dean/Lawyer!Castiel, lawyer student!Sam, Luzifer, Gabriel, detective!Bobby, detective!Charlie, Lieutenant!Gordon Walker, Captain!Ellen, Lawyer!Kevin, Lawyer!Bela, Raphael, Alastair
authors summary: Dean thinks he knows pretty much everything there is to know about his best friend Castiel Novak - he’s a smart, gorgeous DA who probably lets Dean get away with more than he should to see the bad guy locked up - but it turns out Cas is hiding some dark family secrets.
My note: The story’s pretty typical, the usual kidnapping-rescue-thing, but it was just so lovely written and the way the characters are portrayed just really got me.
Some Guys Have All The Luck
Some Guys Have All The Luck by strangeandcharm
tags: Hurt/Comfort, Cas!whump, grumpy!Cas, Season 5, pre-slash
pairings/characters: Castiel/Dean, Sam, a wendigo
authors summary: A cave, a wendigo, an angel with no powers. What could possibly go wrong? Quite a lot, actually…
My note: It’s vaguely based on the dr. house finale episode in which a building collapsed and a women was stuck underneath.
Cas!whump in well-known strangeandcharm-style, light slash ensues.
Needle and Thread
Needle and Thread by Misachan
tags: Hurt/Comfort, Wingfic, Slash, Season 5, Cas!whump
pairings/characters: Castiel/Dean, Sam (mentioned)
authors summary: The plan didn’t go exactly how Castiel thought it would. Hurt/Comfort wing!fic.
prompt: Castiel is injured in a fight and can’t heal himself right away, so Dean tries to patch him up the best he can. He’s never had to do first aid on wings, though…
My note: Well written, nice whump wing!fic.

My note: Short, but a pretty nice whump!fic.
Burn the Heart Out of You
Burn the Heart Out of You by Persephoneshadow
tags: Possessed Dean, Human!Cas, Cas!Whump, Dean!Whump, Canon-Typical Violence, Torture, non-con elements, bamf!cas, bamf!dean, bamf!sam, fluff elements
pairings/characters: Castiel/Dean, Sam, Abaddon, Ezekiel, Alistair (freeform)
authors summary: A knight of hell can do a lot of terrifying things. Possessing Dean the day he’s reunited with Castiel is just the start.
My note: this possession!fic was SO not like the others - and that’s a damn good thing! Persephoneshadow brought in aspects and plot devices that the others just don’t, which I can’t reveal to you…. BUT it’s definitely worth a read!
Anywhere But Here
Anywhere But Here by strangeandcharm
tags: Castiel!Whump, Hurt!Castiel, off-screen torture, pre-slash, established relationship, bamf!Sam, alternative timeline, set in season 5
pairings/characters: Castiel/Dean, Sam, Luzifer, Alistair
authors summary: Imprisoned by Lucifer and worrying about Sam, Dean has a lot on his plate - but thanks to Castiel, he soon realizes that there’s an awful lot more that isn’t right in the world…
My note: At first I was a little confused, but once I got the hang on what happened I found it a pretty interesting theme.
Wings Of Desire (and Wing Man)
Wings Of Desire by strangeandcharm
tags: Castiel!Whump, Hurt!Castiel, Fallen!Castiel, Torture, Wings, Demons, Violence, set season 9 beginning
pairings/characters: human!Castiel, Dean, Sam, OC!demon, Crowley
authors summary: Set just after the season eight finale. Castiel may be human but he still has wings – valuable wings, at that. This hasn’t escaped the notice of the demon world, and they want them very badly.
My note: Actually really a pretty interesting story. It’s written out of the POV of the OC!demon, which almost put me off. But it just fits. The character is written very interesting and it gives the whole story authenticity. Still, it’s mostly Cas!Whump.
The Sequel Wing Man is about Dean and Sam dealing with an almost dying Cas after the resque
tags: Castiel!Whump, Hurt!Castiel, Fallen!Castiel, Wings, Body Horror, Pre-Slash
pairings/characters: human!Castiel, Dean, Sam
authors summary: Castiel is left with serious injuries after being captured by demons… injuries the Winchesters may have to take drastic measures to heal.
Who Favor Fire
Who Favor Fire by MollyC
tags: Torture, Hurt/Comfort, Cas!whump, Season 5, burning, holy fire
pairings/characters: Castiel, Dean, Sam, Demon
authors summary: The Winchesters told him not to go alone, and Castiel has cause to regret not listening.
My note: Basically it’s not much story and a lot of description of the torture Cas’s put through. But the descriptions are good and it makes your guts twinge….
