Val’s Omega!Dean Destiel Fic Recs:Updated September 2014
(in alphabetical order, ☆ denotes an especial fave.)
A Fine Frenzy☆ by the_gabih (NC-17)
The rest of Dean’s family have these romantic, almost fairytale stories of how they first met their mates. Dean? Not so much. But he’s okay with that.
One of my fave pwp destiel fics in general. The opening is perfection, so funny and in character, and the porn is great. Just a really fun, hot read and one of the fics that got me kinda obsessed with omega!dean in the first place.
A Hole in the World☆ by AnnaliseMichel (NC-17)
Dean Winchester never wanted to go home again. Going back to Lawrence meant people who knew what he was, who didn’t buy into the lie. But with a tragic accident, he’s back and dealing with the death of his father, the social stigma and objectification of being an out Omega, and the lingering aftermath of a long-ago crime.
What I love about this fic is how unashamedly angsty it is. Rather than using close calls or stories about other omegas to show how terribly they are treated by society as a lot of fics do - it’s Dean himself who’s been abused horribly here. Except it’s not used to shock - the abuse is only referred to and it’s more the lingering effect upon Dean that the reader sees. It’s plotty and has some great background intrigue also. Dean is especially well characterized here,
This was the first long omega!dean fic ever really, and started the whole ‘angsty dystopian abo verse’ thing basically. Parts of it are incredibly painful to read, but Dean and Cas’s romance is very satisfying.
Bone deep by Valyria (NC-17)
Restless in the wake of his heat, 18 year old Dean Smith sneaks out of his college dorm in search of a one-night stand and ends up with much more than a few lovebites to show for it.
It’s a Terrible Life ABO verse.
Slightly rushed one shot featuring mpreg and pining!dean. (self-rec)
Come Clean by Snuggycas (NC-17)
When Sam makes Dean help for the Universities annual car wash fundraiser, he meets Castiel Milton, a business intern who is finishing his masters degree. When they go on a date and Dean’s heat suppressants fail, they make a discovery that will change their lives forever. This is all porn to be honest.
A cute human college au one shot.
Grey by Valyria (NC-17)
In a world where people don’t see in color until they find their true mate, the first thing Dean sees when he pulls himself out of his grave is the blue sky. When Castiel raised him from the Pit, he inadvertently claimed Dean as his mate.
A SPN verse based angst-fest. Basically omega!dean pinning for oblivious angel alpha!cas. (self-rec)
Ignite by the_gabih (NC-17)
Castiel helps Dean through his heat, and in doing so creates a whole new set of problems.
SPN verse one shot - Dean goes into heat and Sam gets Castiel to bring him some suppressants. Naturally they have sex instead.
In These Woods by reillyblack (NC-17)
The Great War between alphas and omegas ended over a year ago and the birthrate still hasn’t stabilized. The victors with control of the new government, the alphas, enact an ordinance that every omega of birthing age must conceive within the year or face “consequences”, in order to avoid future economic burden. Since he has no desire to have children, Dean goes on the run before the government can force him to comply. When he’s caught he quickly finds out what kind of “consequences” they have planned for him - they come in the form of a blue-eyed, dark-haired disgraced soldier who felt similarly about the order to mate.
A dystopian AU with lots of plot twists and bamf omega!dean as a resistance fighter. Lots of running through the woods, sexual tension and misunderstandings as Dean learns to trust Cas.
Into Your Hideaway by thepinupchemist (NC-17)
Driving down a deserted road in the Rocky Mountains, Castiel finds something unexpected: An omega. Not only an omega, but a naked, injured, pregnant omega.
Dean doesn’t talk much at first, but that doesn’t change the brightness of his soul. It also doesn’t stop Castiel from falling in love with him.\
This fic focuses a lot on the sexism of the abo verse it is set it, and it has a lot of dean!whump and angst (mostly flashbacks) but overall I would call it a domestic fic? It has lots of sweet fluff between Dean and Castiel and a slow burn build between them with lots of pining and miscommunication.
There are a lot of the more ‘were’ based mating tropes in this fic (scenting/mating bonds/calling babies ‘pups’) and Dean and Cas becoming mates is a big focus. Also Dean’s pregnancy and the baby play a big part of it, so if you are looking for a domestic kid!fic abo with a dark background, this is the fic for you.
Lakota Falls by Annehiggins (MA)
Love-at-first sight is supposed to be a myth. Even among Werewolves it’s rare. It’s also the last thing new Pack-leader Castiel wants to deal with. Worse,his instant-mate doesn’t believe in it or his own self-worth. And all of that? It just might be the least of their problems.
This is angsty - Dean’s screwed up and really hates himself here - but I really love angsty!dean, so I was digging all the self-loathing. There is a lot of complicated werewolf politics and world building on Cas’s side of this fic, but really it was Dean’s self-worth issues that kept the tension going for me.
Real Slick Dean☆ by Trilliath (NC-17)
There’s a new alpha enhancer drug “Rutter” on the streets that gets used at
“exclusive parties” for the worst purposes. Detective Castiel Novak and his partner Balthazar work hard to put a stop to it and other sex crimes in their work as Special Victim’s top detectives. Ellen Harvelle’s Roadhouse is both a bar and a refuge for unmated Omegas. The Roadhouse gives Omegas the opportunity have their heats in peace and, if they so desire, even sell an ‘exclusive supply of high-grade slick for the unmated Alpha on the go!’.
Castiel is just such an Alpha, career oriented and having no time for casual sex or potential mates. He’s a regular customer who only buys donor D347’s slick. He’s also a family friend and advocate who helps Omegas in need get connected with Ellen. It’s all fine until one night after a difficult bust he brings Ellen a new Omega about to have her first heat.
What Alpha Castiel doesn’t realize is that he’s been over-dosed with Rutter during the fight and is about to go into a rut so bad he may die. And if that weren’t enough to kill him, the embarrassment he’s about to feel will, because he’s about to meet donor D347 face to face and neither of them are prepared for what’s going to happen.
For a fic this smutty and kinky, this one is surprisingly emotional and touching??
Definitely the best longer porny abo fic I’ve read. The build up is great, the porn is great, the background is great and there is an underling thread of angst and mystery running through the entire thing that keeps in you emotionally invested. A great fic, you’ll just wish it was longer!
Roomate by HigherMagic (NC-17)
After Dean’s first heat when he was eighteen, the young man had gone straight onto heat suppressants – he didn’t have time to find a mate, after all.That had been five years ago. It was time to settle down. Start a family.
A sweet domestic au one shot.
Salt and Burn by garrisonbabe (NC-17)
Dean goes into heat during a hunt, Cas is the only alpha around.
This one is cannon divergent rather than an au - Dean’s still a hunter despite being an omega, which is always interesting.
Snapshots Verse☆ by HigherMagic (NC-17)
A series of one-shots following the meeting, courting and eventual love between an Angel doctor named Castiel and an Angel teacher by the name of Dean. In no particular order.
This verse is my favourite of Rowan’s abo fics (she’s written a lot!). It’s set in a world where humans and angels live side by side. There are Dominant (alpha) and Submissive (omega) angels and all the usual abo tropes that go along with that, plus added bonus Wing!kink and Oil gland!kink.
Cas is a doctor and Dean is a teacher. It starts off pwp porn and then grows a plot with social commentary and angst.
So Come Sweet Fire by morganconner (NC-17)
Dean’s first heat takes hold long after he’s stopped expecting it.
Pwp with an unusual premise. Dean’s 21 and thinks he’s a barren omega since he’s never had a heat.
Just a warning: Castiel is Dean’s older brother here, so don’t read if that squicks you.
The Good Samaritan Rule☆ by manic_intent (NC-17)
Written for deancaskink: “Dean and Castiel are both angels and brothers-in-arms. During a battle, Cas’s wings get hurt and [it’s] up to Dean to help him out. In the process, Cas finds out how sensitive his wings are and well Dean is Dean no matter what his form [is], so this leads to lovely first time sex.” God never made humans. Instead, he made the angels in his image, and on the sixth day he made the ishim, and gave them free will.
Technically not omega!dean - more bottom angel!dean with knotting. A really great fic though, with a fascinating background of angelic hierarchy. Also wing!kink, which is always a bonus.
Tops in Alpha Efficiency by Authocracy (NC-17)
kinkmeme fill: When Dean is assigned Castiel Novak as his new secretary, he’s not expecting the guy to be the actual most efficient assistant on the planet. Nor is he expecting the day a few months after Castiel is hired where Dean forgets his suppressants/they fail, and Castiel mates with him right there in his office. But hey, he’s sure not complaining.
A sweet and fluffy Terrible Life au.
Tradition Can Go Screw Itself by HigherMagic (NC-17)
Castiel is an Alpha in high school – star athlete, most wanted bachelor on the market, and a temper to give him a reputation and a half. Unfortunately, that reputation has managed to reach the one Omega he never thought would be his: the one that he had been matched with from birth and was destined to bemated to. So, faced with the one challenge he can’t fight away, Castiel has to prove to Dean that he’s willing and able to be a nice guy – can be what Dean wants in a mate. If only it were that easy.
An all-human highschool!au and a fun read.
Violator by Moosefeels (M) WIP
Dean’s fifteen and his knot doesn’t pop.
A dystopian AU where Dean is a teenager who’s thrown out of his pack when he fails to present as an alpha. Castiel is the alpha whose cabin he stumbles across in the woods. Hurt/Comfort, angst.
Wild Angel’s Verse by abstractsilver (NC-17)
Sam and Dean are angel’s that have been held captive by humans their entire lives, released into the wild to live with their own kind.
A sweet series of prompt fics featuring omega!angel!dean and alpha!cas.
