Watch Over You Still by Gassada Watch Over You Still 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.

Some things never change. Castiel watches Dean for all his life and sees him grow into a strong hunter. He is always there at the sideline and even when his own fate changes for the worse, he still is there at night to watch over Dean's sleep.

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.

This is so deep.
Ehrlich, dieses Bild ist für mich DAS Destiel-Bild schlechthin. Sie sind sich so nah, so verdammt nah, aber irgendwie doch so weit voneinander entfernt...
Herrlich, all the feels :D
Und mal davon ab: Man, diese Details in dem Bild... Großartiges Bild :)

Daaaaaaaaaanke. Ich hab genau dasselbe Gefühl bei den beiden. So nah, und gerade wenn man denkt, jetzt ist alles gut, urrrrgh. Die Frustration. Ich war ja absolut gegen Cas am Anfang, hab ihn wirklich nicht gemocht. Ich dachte, er macht zwischen Dean und Sam alles kaputt. Aber dann ist er mir so ans Herz gewachsen, was auch nicht besser war, weils genauso weh tut.
Jaja, die Jungs :-(

Okay, nochmal sorry für die späte Antwort. Vielen lieben Dank für die ganzen Kommentare! :heart::heart::heart:

Ja, Cas... Ich muss sagen ich mochte ihn von anfang an und das hat das alles nicht gerade leichter gemacht :D
Schlimm, wie man da mitleidet .__. Mein Freund beschwert sich schon immer, dass meine Stimmung allzu oft von SPN abhängt... Man kann ihn ja verstehen :D

Bitte bitte für die Kommentare, ich finde deine Bilder auch wirklich unglaublich toll. Wünschte, ich wär nur halb so talentiert wie du :D

your work is stunning, and i love it! and the detail is gorgeous-is that the gleam of Dean's knife beneath the pillow?

Aaaw, thank you very much! I am happy you like my art. ... I actually had to go back and check it because I forgot I put it there but it is supposed to be his gun (I am gonna do something really girly and say "the pretty one") I can't find a better pic at this second than this….

Your arts are amazing and I just wanna ask, would you like to join our project? We're going to make presents for SPN-cast (Misha, Jensen, Jared and Osric) and we need good artist and beautiful arts. You can find all information in our tumblr:
So maybe you want to draw something for Jensen's or Osric's book? Or maybe you could help to make a gift for Jared? Or recommend any artist who could join us?

Please, even if you're not intrested in this idea, help us to spread the word! Reblog this post (if you have a tumblr)… and retweet this (if you have a twitter)…

And thank you anyway!)
Have a nice day :3

Hi! Thank you so much for asking, I am happy you like my art.
Honestly, I'd love to participate but I probably won't make it till April 10th. I have a really busy schedule at the moment. I can try a little something, but it's not likely that I'll get done. And if you wanted to and if it would fit, you could gladly use this picture (Twins:

I can send you a higher resolution, too.
I don't have a Tumblr or a Twitter.

Yes, this is a great art and I'd love to have it in our book!
But as I can see, there is a story of this art writing, right? Our book for Jensen will be like John Winchester's diary and it would be great if you rewrote it as a story telling by Dean so we can put it in our book. What do you think?

Oh, and please, send me the full-size version to my email
And if you prefer us to use your real name in the book instead of a nickname, send it to me with the art :)

Thank you very much for your interest to our project and good luck with your bussineses :)
