God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him. ~ I John 4:16 (King James Version)Summary: They were sent from Heaven with a mission from God, the Holy Father of all Creation. As the world below starts to crumble, both from the ongoing battle between Heaven and Hell and the self-destructive behaviors of mankind, these two otherworldly creatures are there to complete their deeds. However, not everything runs smoothly according to the angelical orders. Castiel, who was sent to save Dean Winchester from damnation, and Number Six, an acclaimed angel herself, was brought to guide certain individuals to their destiny's in preserving the human race, even by questionable methods; upon meeting the other, it is known that neither can understand nor accept certain things happening in their own kind. Among that, starting to realize their initial feelings towards humanity, in which they lean and guide each other through these startling revelations -- and help the other in this battle. For they are Angels of the Lord, and will do whatever is necessary to prevent the next End of Days.
Notes: In making crossovers, I had difficulty trying to figure out how to make two characters from different fandoms come together like this. I have many different versions and alternatives, but decided this would be a great start. I admit my shallowness for Six/Castiel, however the more I began working and devising the concept, the more it made sense to have Six appear to Castiel as he did to Dean. This is, more or less, my tribute to this crackalicious pairing which has become my crack!OTP. And I probably will do more in the future.
01. "Higher Than Hope" by Nightwish
PassiontideShe stood, only a few feet away. He saw her approaching but didn't budge. He couldn't.
An angel by my side
But no Christ to end this war
To deliver my soul from the sword
Hope has shown me a scenery
"It has begun," the human voice quivered from his throat, the vessel he choose was getting to him. He dared not let it show, even though he knew she could see through anything and everything about him.
But she only nodded, eyes cast downward as she approached him. "I know."
Nothing else was said, since there was nothing else to say. The war had reached it's peak, the Seals were being broken left and right, and their side (whatever side that would be, Castiel was beginning to not know anymore) was weakening. Brothers in arms were dying in the field, and whatever was left wasn't enough. He needed something, reassurance; the Winchester boy was getting there but how much longer before he understood his calling? Before he realized this wasn't a regular job, that the bigger picture was drawing near the End?
Castiel's devastation must've shown because Six's hand touched his arm. He glanced up and caught her gazing. Non-judging or accusing, as Uriel's would've been had he been standing in her place. She knew his feelings, but understood. As though she, too, had them as well.
There, in that second, a glimmer of hope re-emerged from his heart in knowing he wasn't alone.
02. "Hymni Nocturnales" by Qntal
Aquae fovens vivificusThe Catholic cathedral was gigantic; the darkened building illuminated only by a dim light and candles surrounding the entire room. Six had been in many places of worship, but none compared to something as magical and familiar like a place such as this. Just by walking across the threshold, even before as she walked up the front steps, she started feeling God's love course through her again, as though his presence surrounded her at that moment.
iam incumbebat spiritus,
ut hinc aquae
iam tunc conciperent,
nunc sacram parerent
She never doubted God surged through her entire being every day, but in the coming days of the War anxiety flooded through her. She felt like she needed reassurance of her duty here.
Coming to such a place of worship made her feel closer to God.
Walking down the aisle, she came to the front and knelt down at the bench, holding her hands up, interlocking her fingers together, and started to pray.
What seemed like an eternity she felt another familiar presence at her side.
"Good to see you, Castiel."
"And you, as well."
Together, they sat and prayed in silence. Feeling God's love and presence wash over them.
03. "Rev 22:20 (REV 4:20 Remix)" by Puscifer
Don't be aroused by my confession,This was unimaginable, it was unthinkable.
Unless you don't give a good goddamn about redemption
I know Christ is coming
But so am I
Yet, it was happening.
Angels couldn't be together, not in this manner. It was unconscionable, it was every Sin imaginable and it was the basis for losing their Grace and wings and the Holy Fire of their ways. Though would it lead him to Fall, like others have? Temptation from a fellow warrior? He would think not, as it had never happened before. But through their time together, battling and visiting in private, Castiel never did get a chance to ask about her ranks. Neither of his brothers seemed to know or were aware of her continued presence around him, or him to her. It was almost like...
No. It wouldn't be possible, nor understandable. How could an angel appear to another angel, as one would to a human? It made little sense.
But when she leaned in and brushed her soft lips against his, he knew she was answering his innermost prayers for guidance, for solace; comfort and warmth. Although the Love of God would've been enough surging through them, in their losing war it clearly wasn't enough to satisfy the need for continuing, for venturing onward. It was a natural human need, a sense of wanting, longing, hoping for another's acceptance by physical contact.
Castiel knew of love, but he never felt desire before. The human body he took reacted almost instinctively; every sensation burning intensely as he fell deeper into the warmth of the woman before him.
Lord, Father forgive us...
04. "Fragments of Faith” by Lacuna Coil
My halo fades; sin is calling"We cannot."
The promise has been stolen
My disease, everlasting
Let me dream forever
My soul to take
"Castiel, you must look inside your heart and understand what this is..."
"I understand what it is. It's unacceptable for us to...conjugate in this manner."
Six looked hurt. Not, not hurt, not exactly. Enraged. This was something new, something they hadn't done since they'd met, and honestly while Castiel held himself still before her he knew that if he dared take a step she would burn him then and there.
"God's plan," she started slowly, voice quivering, but Castiel held up his hand.
"Is not this. I'm sorry."
Suddenly she approached him, staring down at him dangerously. Her nostrils flared and her eyes burned with something indescribable. He only stared right back at her with the same intensity, as if challenging her to do or say anything else. Still, he dared not to move from where he stood.
She muttered something ("I will pray for you") and then stormed off, leaving Castiel feeling bit a relief, but also an emptiness in the pit of his stomach and fear. Fear of not knowing where to go from there.
05. "Silence" by Sarah McLachlan
Heaven holds a sense of wonderDays passed, and the weight was getting heavier. The War, his responsibilities towards protecting the Winchester boy and, against everything he'd known before, his formed relationship with a fellow comrade in this war. But it was the lingering feelings of doubt that started to really get to him. He couldn't go to Uriel, knowing what he would say on the matter. Dean Winchester was a good listener, but he couldn't provide much comfort; a bond between him and the boy started forming well but, in recent events with Anna, it was dwindling slightly.
and I wanted to believe
that I'd get caught up
when the rage in me subsides
Castiel felt utterly alone.
Until he felt another presence appear suddenly next to him.
"I didn't beckon for you," he uttered, his voice hoarse as though he'd strained it from the many battles he'd fought over the course of the last several days.
Six, clad in that familiar red dress, knelt at his side.
"You didn't need to," her voice replied, calm and soothing.
Castiel leaned into her hand that stroked his cheek, and like faithful comrades in battle, she took him in her embrace as he gave into that familiar warmth he needed. That he wanted and, Lord forgive him, he wanted and needed this. Was he becoming too familiar with humanity that he was starting to act and feel human himself? He didn't know, and he didn't want the answer then. All he wanted was to not be left alone with his self-doubt, with the agony of this war hanging in the balance.
And Six stayed with him, in this unspoken embrace, never leaving his side.
06. "Pegasus" by Bear McCreary
Instrumental.It was a testament of faith, his faith particularly. Six knew he would be questioning it, having doubts, and it was in her best interest, and God's as well, to make sure he didn't stray. His faith and love in God would never be broken, and they all knew this. But it was because of this that she needed to be sure he understood the full intent of her presence to him specifically.
"You were my mission, Castiel," Six was explaining, still holding his gaze. "I was given several tasks to complete, but much like your orders to save and protect Dean Winchester, mine were to help guide you through your mission and help you through times of doubt. Though I, too, was going through certain misgivings. Needless to say, it was a benefit for us both."
Castiel didn't speak for a long moment. When he did, it was a simple question: "And who am I to you?"
Smiling kindly, Six rested one hand on his and the other on his cheek, and leaned close for him to hear her just above a whisper.
"Just another Angel of God, burning with His love, as I'd given to you. Be not afraid of it, Castiel. Thrive from it, because it is His love coursing through you, just as He is with me."
This time, their kiss meant more than just simple act of physical contact and need; it was reassurance, the warmth of God's love flooded through them like electricity, letting the knowledge of God's love flow deeper into the core of their very souls beyond the human skin they wore. In that moment of epiphany and confession, it was made clear that God's love moved in all of His Creations; human and angel alike, creatures of all kinds.
07. "Tikal" by E.S. Posthumus
InstrumentalSo it had begun.
The War was beginning to emerge, the Seals coming down to the last one that would unleash Lucifer from his hell bound cage. Even with Heaven's side weakening, their numbers kept adding up. The Winchesters and other hunters joining into the fight alongside the angels; Castiel and his brothers, and Six with her brothers and sisters, all gathered together on the battlefield in protection of the last and final Seal.
They were all bloodied, tired and war-weary, but it didn't stop them.
Castiel helped Dean during their many battles, and Six was now standing side-by-side alongside them, her attire changed from red to black, prepared for battle. She and Castiel exchanged knowing glances before the first battle -- both their blue eyes filled with hope and love and affection, and the fierce determination of winning the war together.
But whether they won or lost that day, it didn't matter. It wouldn't be over.
It would never be over.
And so, as brothers in battle and soldiers in war, both Six and Castiel knew that while they wielded their flaming swords and fighting the demons and performed Holy Fire exorcisms, they would still be in the fight, and that not matter what happened the love of God would still be with them. For they were angels of God Almighty Himself, and His love would never falter, and they would never lose sight of this fact.
As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you; continue ye in my love. ~ John 15:9 (King James Version)
