Anyway, I love this fic because it's a sensible AU. Some AU's are so wild and crazy that it makes me hate the whole AU genre. I'm just not an AU girl. I don't write them often myself. But what I love about this story is that it takes a concept and weaves it into canon in a way you almost wish it were canon.
I would consider this fic more of a gen fic with a ship component to it. It explores the Castiel/Anna relationship in multiple ways and I really love it. It also looks at the early days of the Winchesters that made me appreciate wee!chesters a little more. Maybe I am a little biased because I betaed it, but I'm crazy picky and this gets all my praise. I'd like to think that means something ;)
The best part? The characters feel like their Tv counterparts. Everyone is amazingly in character :)
