A/N: Wow. It's been a long time.

It's been difficult staying away for this long. I've missed you all, my verdant vegetables, and I've missed this universe. But between my thrilling part-time job at Macy's and the rigors of law school, I've been far too busy to crank out fanfiction. I've been working on this bit for quite some time, using my moments of spare time here and there to work on it, and originally I was going to save it until it was finished to publish it, piece by piece.

BUT THEN, last week's episode aired. And LET ME TELL YOU, some IMPLICIT THEMES I was planning on EXPLORING suddenly became EXPLICIT THEMES and I figured I should strike while the iron is hot. Therefore, I give you this fic. It's... different.

It takes place in the real world, our world, where most monsters are people - some evil, and some just human. Everything else you need to know is in the story. It's Dean/Cas, of course, but it's not a typical romance. I urge you to give it a shot, and please please please review. I'm hoping to keep the story fairly short, but I probably won't be able to update for some time - probably not until at least next weekend. :( I know you guys are used to a much speedier schedule, and I apologize.

Thank you, dear readers, for taking a look, and I hope to see you in the reviews. Enjoy.
