Happy February, DCBBers!

Hoping everyone is enjoying the DCBB off-season and gearing up for the 2017 round! Speaking of the 2017 round, we're looking at some changes coming to the DCBB community. Main Mod was offered an Exciting New Job Opportunity over the holidays that is going to make continuing to be Main Mod difficult for this upcoming challenge round. There was some back-and-forth with the existing Minion Mods, but no one was interested in stepping up to fill the gap internally, so now we're looking at you -- yes, YOU! -- to see if you want to join the team and help run the DCBB.

Interested parties should email the mod account at deancasbigbangmod@gmail.com answering the following questions:

1. Have you ever moderated a community or writing challenge before, and if not what relevant experience do you feel you could bring to the DCBB?

2. What would you like to bring to the DCBB community?

3. How would you deal with complaints about how the challenge is being run?

4. How big of a time commitment do you think that moderating the DCBB is, and how much time are you willing to commit?

We will respond to interested parties, potentially with a couple more questions, and then making a decision towards the end of the month: leaving a full month for the new team member(s) to get prepared for the 2017 round. If you are interested, please email us by February 21st at the latest.

And for those of you who are just waiting to hear about the 2017 DCBB: sign ups will be on April 1st as usual!

Title: Made in Heaven
Author: shalysha
Fandom/Genre: Supernatural
Pairing(s): Dean Winchester/Castiel
Word Count: 65.000
Warnings: Suicide attempt, prostitution, angst, BDSM

Sometimes it feels like life has got it out for you. One tragedy is followed by the next in a never-ending circle. Dean was close to giving up when the world crashed down around him, but he powered through and took life’s misfortunes with his head held high always finding a way to make it work, no matter what that might entail.

Sometimes life gets rough and sometimes life gets you exactly what you didn’t know you needed. Sometimes life brings you a blue-eyed stranger with a set of leather cuffs and rooms full of secrets.

Title: First Gentleman Wanted
Author: puppycastiel (youaresunlight)
Artist: marietwist (sketchydeant)
Fandom/Genre: Supernatural/AU
Pairing(s): Castiel/Dean Winchester
Rating: Explicit
Word Count: 31,555
Warnings: Political AU, Fake/Pretend Relationship, Explicit Sexual Content, Fluff, Kid Fic, Mutual Pining, Misunderstandings, Emotional Hurt/Comfort, Happy Ending
Summary: President of the United States Castiel Novak is popular, charismatic, and knee-deep in campaigning for a second term. He’d be the ideal candidate if it weren’t for the fact that he hasn’t dated once while in political office. With his opponent’s relentless PR team calling him incapable of emotional commitment, Castiel’s staff decides to remedy the situation by finding their boss a fake, picture-perfect boyfriend. And when Dean Winchester enters the scene, he and Cas become America’s new favorite couple, except they’ve got a whole lot of history between them and complicated feelings to resolve.

Title: Shotgun Wedding
Author: TheAuthorGod (ao3) aka MaryMotherOfHunters (tumblr)
Artist: GabrielSeductiveTrickstere (tumblr) (art only tumblr)
Fandom/Genre: Supernatural: Assassin/Bodyguard AU
Pairing(s): Dean Winchester/Castiel, Past Mary Winchester/John Winchester, Past Kate Milligan/John Winchester
Rating: Explicit
Word Count: ~25k
Warnings: Violence?, Explicit sexual content, bottom!Dean (only in the last chapter that you don't have to read for the story)

When Dean's step-mother, Kate Milligan, dies, she leaves with them three bodyguards, one for Adam, one for Sam, and one for Dean, which Dean receives as a slap in the face from beyond the grave.
“Adam, I’ve contracted Michael for your protection. Dean, he was in the military for several years before being assigned as personal detail to various heads of state when they arrive in D.C. He is the cofounder of the Guardian Angel Program where these men were hired from.”
Michael smiled and waved a little. He was the oldest of the three men. He had dark hair and darker eyes. Dean could see the military in his posture. He nodded in approval.
“Sam, for you, I’ve contracted Gabriel. He wants to be a lawyer, but he enlisted in the military due to familial legacy. He has a weird sense of humor, but I’m sure you’ll react just fine since you’ve dealt with Dean for years. Dean, Gabriel was plucked from the same batch of personal detail guards as Michael. He is well-trained in hand-to-hand combat and will continue to train Sam while they are in California. Sam will not be allowed to go soft.”
Sam glared at Dean, but Dean only shrugged. Sam would most definitely have gone soft.
Gabriel stood and bowed. “A pleasure.” He grinned.
“Castiel was hired to protect Dean.”
Zachariah took a long pause. His eyes darted over the paper a bit. In the vacuum, Dean met Castiel’s eyes and held them.

Rating: T
Word Count: 45,469
Warnings: a little angst, a little h/c

Summary: In a land where magic is punishable by death, and at a time when even just being associated with a sorcerer can get you killed, Castiel comes to Camelot hoping his aunt’s old friend Bobby will be able to help him with his magic. Due to an, in Castiel’s opinion frankly unfortunate, succession of events, he finds himself the manservant of the irritating Crown Prince of Camelot, His Royal Highness Prince Dean.

Rating: Explicit
Word Count: 22182
Warnings: Explicit sexual content, bottom!Dean

Summary: Years after leaving his high school boyfriend Castiel behind, Dean Winchester was living the life he thought would make him happy. He had a high paying job and a fantastic condo in New York City. His life couldn't be better. Right? Wrong. The day of his birthday, Dean woke up and got ready for work. It turned out to be one of the worst days ever. After wreaking his car, Dean fell and cracked his head against concrete. He woke up to find himself in an alternate reality married to Cas. At first, Dean thought it's all a dream, but once he realized he's wrong, Dean tried to make the best of the situation. Will the new life with Castiel make Dean realize he wasn't happy after all? Or will he return to his life in New York and forget the whole thing happened?
