The wonderful king_stitch wrote a heartbreaking, beautiful story
for it, please make sure to go read it.

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.
