Prologue:

Gabriel opened his eyes to see Chuck looming over him. Memories of being held captive, tortured and dying flooded back into his mind.

"Oh, Hell No!" Gabriel hissed.

Chuck nodded, "I agree."

"Send me back in time to fix this mess!" Gabriel insisted, "I know you can do it so that I merge with my original self."

"We can change some points, but only after Castiel returns from Purgatory," Chuck mused, "Unless you want to step up and take on Raphael?"

"No, thank-you."

"Then I'll send you to the point after the Winchesters have found the bunker, but before they begin the trials to seal Hell. I will be able to provide limited guidance."

Gabriel smirked, "I have some very interesting ideas."

"I am sure you do."

AN: Rules of my fic

1 – You will not find any song lyrics in here; that would be a waste of my time and yours.

2 – I will not recount episodes of Supernatural line by line; frankly I find that very annoying.

3 – If you spot a typo, feel free to message me so I can fix it. I proofread as much as possible, but I'm not perfect.

4 – If you hate it, close the window and find something else.

5 – I read every review and answer private messages as long as they are not asking stupid questions.

6 – I have no talent for writing smut. My previous attempt led to reviewers lamenting how awful it was and demanding I change it. If any does appear in this fic, brace yourself for the lack of quality.

7 – There are some amazing fics on this site, but there are plenty of garbage piles too. I find the excessive use of exclamation points, lack of commas and inability to use capital letters infuriating. If you're going to leave me a rude review, feel free to do so with terrible grammar so I can delete it promptly.

8 – This should be the only AN in this fic, unless I reply to an offensive guest review of someone too cowardly to sign in.
