Summary: In his attempt to wage a war of revenge against the demons, the young human king Dean attacks the angels, seizing their lands to build a settlement closer to the sulfurous lands. He doesn’t care about the angelic culture that his actions threaten, but when he is given a gift in the form of the vanquished king’s protégé, his understanding of angels has to be challenged.

Faced with the contradictory nature of his young husband, Castiel has to learn the way of humans in order to not only become someone that does – for the first time in his life – hold power and agency, but also find a way to return to the home from which he has been exiled as a sacrifice for peace.
