Fandom: Supernatural
Rating: PG
Author's Notes: Written for the supernatural100 challenge #223: Opportunity
Length: 100 words
Spoilers: Good God, Y'all
Summary: Angels don't lie. They speak in shades of truth.
Disclaimer: These characters belong to Kripke.

True, Dean’s amulet would burn hot in His presence. It also marks a man of destiny, one watched over by angels.

The Enochian sigils Castiel carved into the brothers’ ribcages will indeed conceal them from all angels. It’s a side effect of the ancient magic that hides them from the very eyes of God.

He watches over all His children. But Castiel has seen, over the ages, that He tests hardest those He loves best. The Winchesters have rivaled Job in their trials.

If His favorites disappear from view, Castiel reasons that perhaps their Father will come to find them.

Ooh. I love that last line. It gives me wonderfully wicked ideas.

I love this idea so much! Their trials have been awful if what Castiel has seen over the ages is true, He must love the Winchesters a lot. God coming to find them should be canon.

Great souls are formed through great trials. I'm sure God finds them as compelling as we do. God coming to find them should be canon. Wouldn't it be nice?

Thanks for reading and commenting, tifaching!

Hm... the last line is actually quite smart, that thought, I mean. hehe Nice drabble!

Thanks! I was thinking about the scene where Castiel asks to borrow Dean's amulet, and thinking, 'What, Castiel's an angel, and he can't feel when he's in the presence of God?' When it occurred to me there might be ANOTHER reason for him to take it away from Dean.

you are brilliant! It's the sigils that will draw god out, not so much the amulet. Very cool. It is true that angels cannot lie, so they must learn manipulation and to tell the truth from a certain point of view.

Thank you, threecatmama! Castiel's POV intrigues me - far more inhuman than the demons.

The last line ... it has possibilities for moar.

Will there be moar?

I don't know - I never rule it out, with drabbles, but writing GOD is just a bit intimidating. You notice how neatly Kripke's side-stepped it?

Thanks for reading, labseraph!

What a beautiful and intriguing idea. And in drabble, too. Bravo.

Ohh, chilling. I really hope this becomes canon.

*smiles* Seems unlikely, but it's fun to play with the possibilities.

Excellent reasoning there, clever, if desperate scheming by Castiel.
Lovely!

Faith comes naturally to Castiel - the reasoning he has to work at. But, yes, he certainly is desperate. Thank you for reading, eretria!

Oh, what an interesting and yet mean idea! Still, desperate times call for desperate measures.

And Castiel has indeed been desperate this season. Thanks for reading, mulder200!

entirely possible. though its also possible that if the faorites vanish, He might shrug and try over again.

(hubris, Cass?) :)

very delightful read. a good possibility.

I personally view it as desperation, rather than hubris. Thanks for reading, rodlox!

I like this. In particular, I like the summary. Angels speak a different truth, out of phase with our own.

The amulet is always intriguing, and not explored often. I have a plan for it in my sequel.

What touches me most is how much Castiel wants to hear from God again. I think his "not speaking to them" is perhaps their greatest trial.

Thank you! I struggle to understand the angels in SPN. They seem far more inhuman than the demons. I think God's presence was the foundation, not only of their society but also of their emotional lives, and His sudden withdrawl has left chaos behind.
