Why You Should Read This:
The author has a fascinating take on angels and their relationship with humans. In this world, humans make a request via prayer, and an angel is dispatched to make sure the human gets what they asked. Angels are often seen on the streets, and it’s widely regarded as no big deal. Dean Winchester is Castiel’s first assignment, and naturally things do not go smoothly. With all the angst on the show, it’s nice to have a light-hearted read, and this is a great one. This fic snuck up on me; I read and enjoyed it, but didn’t think much of it – it was only later, as time passed, that I realized that I could not get this fic out of my head.
