: Soccer AU. Castiel is the Arsenal defender who's being courted by New York Red Bulls agent Sam Wincher for a transfer. This is twenty-four hours in Dean's life, during which he tries to be assistant coach to a bunch of crazy footballers, and tries to sabotage his brother's grand plan to steal his club's star player. Which he does by sleeping with said player. Stellar
: all my love to vail_kagami for being so impossibly patient with this.
This piece is obviously fiction, and absolutely not true to life. All real-life details are mostly accurate, and definitely over-simplified. Castiel is not a stand-in for any real-life Arsenal player, not least because those
transfer sagas never had a happy ending. There are no take-thats at any real-life club player, former or current. Honestly.
"You hit me."
"You were a dick."
Dean blinked. Not because it was the first time he'd been called that (oh no, Sam had beaten him to that one centuries ago) but because it was curiously strange to hear the profanity roll off Castiel's tongue. It was fascinating and vaguely dirty at the same time, as if he was watching Cas twist cherry stems in his mouth.
"Well, that doesn't mean you gotta cross an ocean to get away from me!"
