Totally short and cracky but I promised thevinegarworks a ~spoilery pairing~ within 24 hours and I endeavour to keep my promises.



Title: Just a Slip of the Tongue
Fandom: Supernatural
Pairing: Crowley/Castiel
Rating: PG
Spoilers: 5x10.
Dedications: To thevinegarworks for being demanding in the very best sort of way <3.
Summary: It's all a question of taste.



The funny thing is, or so Crowley supposes, that he doesn't really have to make an effort in the end.

Castiel is as uncomfortable an ally as Crowley has ever had but at least the angel seems to have a sense of the true gravity of the situation, which is more than he can say for the Winchesters; and being cut off from heaven, Castiel doesn't have the ability to simply wipe Crowley from existence with a look.

It's still unsettling to hear the rustle of wings whenever the angel appears and to know that if Castiel were to leave his vessel it would leave Crowley blinded, but thankfully the angel seems guileless enough; even if Crowley could swear he'd heard mutterings about smiting whenever their frequent arguments took a turn for the worse.

It's an uneasy alliance but since when have such things been otherwise between angels and demons? Crowley's a salesman, he's used to handling contracts, and being on good terms with your business partner isn't always a necessity.



It starts off small; the angel doesn't even seem to think twice about accepting the mojito Crowley prepares for him as they look over a Latin scroll where even to Crowley's eyes the text is illegible; Castiel on the other hand can read a little beyond what human eyes, borrowed or otherwise, can see. He might have lost most of his powers but certain quirks of perception are still there.

When Castiel accepts the mojito it's hard to resist seeing where the angel's limits lie; and moreover, where his tastes lie. Rum certainly turns out to be a favourite, and Castiel makes a genuine quiet sigh of pleasure when Crowley treats him to a strawberry daiquiri for the first time.

But cocktails are frivolous and after a while Crowley finds himself intrigued by this angel who not only accepts alcohol from a demon, but has preferences; he eases away from the mixes to trying Castiel out with wines and spirits and liqueurs, and he supposes he shouldn't honestly be so surprised when the angel turns out to have something of a sweet tooth.



What is a surprise is realising that his interest in the angel's tastes isn't quite as detached as he thought. A night comes when Crowley calls on Castiel to provide additional safeguarding for his current residence by blessing the water supply - Crowley technically could do the job himself but there's no way he's standing within five metres of that much holy water, and Castiel doesn't object because demons are demons as far as he's concerned. Crowley thanks the angel for the work without actually saying 'thank you', pours the angel a glass of Baileys, and wonders how he's managed to slip through the net of Castiel's black and white view on demons as Castiel takes a sip.

At first he prepares to grab a trashcan when the angel freezes up, assumes politeness is the one thing stopping Castiel from spitting or vomiting, but then Castiel swallows with a sound that is - and there's no other word for it - orgasmic. It's an outright moan that sends a shiver electric down Crowley's spine and there's an awkward moment when they both look at each other before Crowley clears his throat and walks away, leaving Castiel to the glass in peace.



It is the best part of a fortnight before circumstance forces Castiel to his residence again, Castiel calling in the favour of the blessing in exchange for a very particular variety of herb that Crowley knows well enough to possess and well enough not to touch without the assistance of a few very well-trusted hands.

He pours Castiel a glass of Baileys again while waiting on the parcel to be brought down from the attic - and it will never cease to amuse him how those who have raided or attempted to raid his properties in the past always, always head for the basement first; even angelic invaders don't think to start at the top and work their way down - and watches the angel take it in hands that do for just a split second seem to hesitate.

Castiel sips with slow deliberation, muscles tense with resisting the urge to react, and Crowley realises he isn't going to hear another moan for as long as the angel continues to distrust him.

He can't exactly blame the angel for distrusting him - he is a demon after all, and content in being one - but after the parcel is brought up, Crowley gestures for his assistants to leave and rather than inching closer on the sofa like a teenager, takes the glass from Castiel's hands, feeling the faint warmth from Castiel's fingers still lingering on the surface as he puts it down on the coffee table.

Castiel stares at him with wide eyes like a frightened animal, and it's hard to resist turning predatory given his own tendencies, but he manages; the thought that if Castiel ever gets his powers back he could destroy Crowley certainly manages to tame any urge to take advantage.

The angel actually shivers when Crowley cups his face in one hand, brushing his thumb across lips still damp with whiskey and cream, and Crowley knows better than to play the relative morality game with an angel. It's easier just to say, "After I got out of Hell I had to wait three hundred years for them to invent that," and watch Castiel's expression turn from fear to borderline confusion before he leans in and licks the sweetness straight back out of Castiel's mouth.

The angel doesn't protest and the moan that escapes his lips, even muffled, is every bit as electric as it was at that first taste.

YOU ARE MY FAVORITE PERSON IN THE ENTIRE UNIVERSE RIGHT NOW, JSYK.

Cas drinking the Bailey's and going all orgasmic on it kahsdjklhajksdkasda ffffffffffffffffff hot.

I love this dynamic you've created for them. Not-quite-friends but more forced allies, slipping between the black and the white. CAN WE PLEASE HAVE THIS ON SHOW, KRIPKE&CO? PLEASE?

"After I got out of Hell I had to wait three hundred years for them to invent that,"

PERFECT.

I love everything about this so much, and by association, you. ♥ ♥ ♥ x infinity omg you're brilliant. BRILLIANT.

BRB DRINKING THE FUCK OUT OF SOME BAILEY'S.

BY THE WAY I RECCED THE HELL OUT OF THIS.

I FEEL A NEED TO GO OLD SCHOOL HERE:



AND I AM DONE.

:D I am actually seriously glad you got first comment on this, you scary scary demanding person who I love and adore, you ;). *snuggles*

I swear, a dubious alliance between Crowley and Castiel (OR ANY OTHER ANGEL, NGL) on show would make my heart explode.

CASTIEL CAN MARRY BAILEYS WHEN HE'S DONE HAVING A FLING WITH BEER, THAT CHEAP WHORE.

The beer, not Castiel. Castiel would be a high-class courtesan, if anything.

I'M TEMPTED TO FOLLOW SUIT REGARDING THE CONSUMPTION OF BAILEYS, NGL.

I don't think I could ship this hardcore (D/C = OTP) but I just watched 5x03 for the first time and I kind of want Cas/Other really bad. Any recs before I go on my hunt? :P

I liked this, it was pretty realistic, especially the simpleness/naivity of Cas (at times), it's a character trait I love a lot.

I'm trying to be srs reviewer but it's like OMG CAS IS DRINKING AND HE LIKES IT AND THERE IS SMOOCHING OF MENZ WHO IZ NOT DEAN, Y/Y.

And Crowley was awesome, like, dude this is your ass and I'm handing it to you, y'know?

Long and short? I like it! :D

I am a total shipperslut, I ship everyone/everyone (even if I do continue to be daftly emotionally invested in any and all combos of Sam, Dean and Castiel). As for 5x03 I have to admit, I don't really keep track of episode codas and the like; I've not seen any Castiel/Raphael but there've been a fair few decent to awesome Dean/Castiel/OFC or Dean/Castiel/Chastity fics here and there.

But, but, anyway :D. Castiel drinking makes me stupid happy too. AND YOU ARE QUITE RIGHT THERE IS SMOOCHING OF NON-DEAN MENZ :O.

Crowley was a beautiful, awesome thing. That total "Here's what you're going to do."

"But how?" Query Sam 'n' Dean.

"SHUT YOUR WHORE ASSES UP AND LISTEN WHEN GROWN UPS ARE TALKING. MORONS."

*hearts him forever*

Mmm, Bailey's.

Baileys is totally my concession to girliness. TOTALLY. I could give up pink and glitter and fluff and, IDK, whatever else is girly, but NO ONE could separate me from Baileys.

I AM GLAD YOU ENJOYED MY DEAR. And now to write something of more actual substance with him, because I'm desperate for either Crowley/Castiel or Crowley/Supernatural-verse!Aziraphale where Crowley is lying back on his bed post-coital with his hands folded in his lap feeling entirely and thoroughly smug and self-satisfied about the fact he's nabbed himself an angel.

LOVE YOU.

I had another comment but I accidentally closed the tab and now I don't even have a clue what it said because I CAN'T THINK THROUGH THIS MUCH LUST.

And later Crowley pours Bailey's all over himself and requests that Cas lick it off, right?
emerald_embers
Nov. 21st, 2009 03:23 am (UTC)
XD XD XD XD XD I WOULD APOLOGISE FOR BREAKING YOUR BRAIN BUT I WON'T.

Later Crowley blatantly should accidentally the whole glass of Baileys and Castiel should involve himself in the clean-up process. BLATANTLY.

*snugglehugs*

Mmmmm, I like. >:D ♥ for your Crowley, and now I'd like to see Castiel drinking Baileys in the show please. With that reaction. :D
emerald_embers
Nov. 21st, 2009 03:24 am (UTC)
Seriously if Castiel reacts to ANYTHING in the show with a 'Mmph' or 'Nngh' of happy that's it, I will die, I will die RIGHT THERE regardless of the cause and extract that sound and listen to it over and over and over as they put me into my grave because I will be too busy BEING DEAD ASDFJKLASJDFKLAS.

I am glad you liked hon <3, I can't wait to write more Supernatural-verse!Crowley

*glee*

Omg, not even gonna lie, because of Good Omens I instantly went to CROWLEY/ANGEL, /ANY ANGEL AVAILABLE and I couldn't resist throwing Castiel in there, especially when Vin demanded it <3. Thank you for the comment!

So I was going to write a smart and sassy concrit for you, but instead I went downstairs and got some Bailey's and here I am twenty five minutes later and I'm giggling like a drunk sorority girl from the movies. Summarized version of what I'm trying to get out here:

i - you have driven me to drink
ii - Castiel is sexy as anything else
iii - SPN!Crowley is pretty much just as sexy
iv - putting them together and drizzling them in irish cream never occurred to me UNTIL RIGHT NOW and lady, if it's wrong, I never want to be right.

Nov. 22nd, 2009 09:44 pm (UTC)
XD I would apologise for getting you giggly and tipsy except that - er, I forget the exception, but basically it all ends in me going "I'm actually not sorry at all!".

Castiel and Crowley are just made of delicious awesomesauce <3, so I think adding Baileys to the equation is just gratuitous, and I don't even care XD. Mmm, Baileys. <3

Nov. 21st, 2009 04:47 am (UTC)
Oooo, this was awesome. I love the dynamic you've created between them. And holy shit this fic makes me want Bailey's so effing much. Mmmmmmm.
emerald_embers
Nov. 22nd, 2009 09:45 pm (UTC)
XD I wonder if I just drove up their share prices by accident? Heehee. But mmm, thank you - although I will admit, the idea for the dynamic is largely lifted from Good Omens. Can't really resist the angel/demon slash <3!

I love Cas and his daiquiris and baileys and moaning. Crowley's seduction is fucking brilliant.

Nov. 22nd, 2009 09:54 pm (UTC)
I completely blame the Sassy meme for making me ship Castiel/strawberry daiquiris, but mmm. Seduction by delicious booze, can't really fault Crowley for it ;).

*hugs* :D

I haven't even seen the ep yet but fuck, for something that wasn't explicit in any way shape or form that was fucking hot.

BRB BUYING BAILEYS.

DO IT. BUY BAILEYS NOW. Oh man, best drink ever <3
