New Charge by Gassada New Charge by Gassada
This is the artpost for the reverse challenge in the 2nd round of the dc_dystopia challenge over at LJ.
The wonderful king_stitch wrote a heartbreaking, beautiful story for it, please make sure to go read it.

Castiel knows he is assigned a new charge and that this human will be important for the angels and mankind one day. He's there even before the baby, Dean, is born. Afterwards, he never leaves his side.

Summary of the story: Castiel is assigned a new role from Heaven: Guardian Angel. Extremely rare, the life of a Guardian Angel is a hard one, though considered a great honor. To be granted such a responsibility, Castiel vowed to forever protect the life of Dean Winchester. When he first meets his charge though, things don't go quite as expected. Castiel finds himself breaking every rule in the book and starts to wonder if he can't create his own purpose as a Guardian Angel.

I really like to think of Cas always being there for Dean. It was not my initial idea, I painted it for a lovely story that in turn was based on another one of my pictures.

Hi Abby, I am very flattered by the request and I am happy that you like my art. But I am working in two jobs, and additionally training to be a psychotherapist and doing a PhD program on the side, so I won't be able to do art as anything more than a hobby in the future.
Thank you very much.
Best,
Gassada
