Fic Recs: Fun with Curses

Thought I'd get on the rec bandwagon and offer up three of my favorite CursedDean fics. These are what I turn to when I've had a really hard day and want to chill!

Title: Something about Toads
Author: pyrebi
Rating: PG-13 for content
Pairing: Dean/Castiel
Word Count: ~3200
Warnings: Crack, a lot of language, mild AU in that this whole Lucifer mess isn't going on.
Summary: There's something about a toad, and about a purple moon, and about a gay freakout, and then there's the happy ending.

I like all of these, obviously, but this is easily my favorite crack fic of all time. Does not get funnier than this. Even after reading it dozens of times, this one still makes me laugh!

Title: Sit. Stay. Good Boy
Author: siennis
Rating: PG-13
Genre and/or Pairing: Dean/Cas
Spoilers: none?
Warnings: sort of puppy!play, mild D/s (in the puppy!play aspect)
Word Count: 1,358
Summary: Dean is cursed with a tail and ears.

Love this one! It's hilarious watching Dean struggle with his inner dog. Short and sweet fun!

Title: The Owl and the Pussycat
Author: lupinus67
Rating: PG
Pairing: Dean/Castiel

Summary: Dean gets turned into a kitten, Castiel worries and despairs, Chuck wears shorts, and Sam tries to cope with all the excess of cute. Also, he laughs his ass off.

Like the summary says, this one is more cute than hilarious, but it still has its hysterical moments. All combines to make one satisfying "awwwwwwwwww."

How about a couple drabbles?

Title: Dean's Quandary (drabble in dialog only)
Author: Kady
Characters: Dean and Sam, mention of Cassie
Prompt: Dean needs advice from Sam about how to ask Cassie out on a date.
Words: 110
Spoiler warning: Unsure. Either it's set pre-series (which would make it AU) or during episode "Route 666." You decide.
Disclaimer: Sam and Dean aren't mine, which makes me sad. Very sad.

Title: The Ring (drabble)
Author: Kady
Characters: Sam and Dean
Prompt: How did Dean get his ring? This is one way it *could* have happened...
Words: 137
Spoiler alert: none (pre-series); teen!chester - Dean is 19, Sammy is 15
Disclaimer: The Winchesters don't belong to me, as much as I wish they did...

Edited to swap out my gif choice. *facepalm*
