Title: Redemption Road
Authors: The Redemption Team
Characters: Dean/Castiel, Sam, Bobby
Length: 652k
Summary: With Castiel having set himself up as the new God, drunk on power and volatile as a nuclear reactor, Dean, Sam, and Bobby find themselves on the run from the jealous, capricious monster wearing the face of their friend. Desperate for protection and wary of his brother’s mental state since Castiel unlocked Sam's memories of Hell, Dean knows Castiel must be defused before he can wreak further havoc in Heaven or on Earth. (...)

Forty-two parts and this still isn't long enough! Virtual season, well-plotted, decently written, and excellently characterized; I blew threw the whole thing in three days and then writhed on the floor, gnashing my teeth, rending my clothing, and wailing for more episodes. My absolute favorite thing is the Lovecraftian influence, but it's also worth noting that the series explores relationships other than Dean and Cas's, including Dean's time with Lisa. (I am always happy when Lisa isn't glossed over.) A+. Would read again.
