One of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s lesser known facilities for training new agents, the Dalton Academy Campus is where young recruits between the ages of 18 and 22 are sent to hone their skills in one of three divisions. Each house is led by a “Prefect” - a 4th year student that shows excellent promise in their chosen division.
Life at Dalton Campus is challenging but fun, until an old enemy returns and everything changes. The Prefects will have their work cut out for them as they try to protect the boys under their care, while trying to determine who is still loyal to S.H.I.E.L.D., and who has turned traitor.

Based on an idea I had of crossing Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD with cpcoulter's “Dalton”. The prefects of course belong to her. I'm merely borrowing them for my madness.
Cas is sixteen when he finally gets glasses. He’s been squinting and tripping over things because his depth perception is awful for as long as he can remember, but he finally gets them when the DMV tells him he can’t get a permit if he can’t see. Cas hates the idea. It’s bad enough he gets picked on for his grades, his father being the local pastor, and his inability to even play a sport as simple as kickball during gym class. High school is rough enough without having glasses that will easily get broken when someone inevitably steals them.
However, having glasses is incredible. Suddenly, Cas has hand-to-eye coordination and can catch the things his brother Gabe throws at him to be a dick. After he adjusts to them, he doesn’t get painful headaches everyday anymore. Cas can kick a kickball or hit a baseball. The world isn’t blurry anymore, and Cas admits that glasses are actually really awesome.
Then he goes back to school on Monday. He doesn’t make it to the first bell before Raphael and his friends notice the new addition. Castiel knocks Uriel’s hand out of the way when he reaches for Cas’ glasses, and they’re all a bit shocked that he actually is defending himself. Their surprise doesn’t last long, and Zachariah grabs Cas from behind, so Raphael can grab the small frames.
"Please, don’t break them," Cas begs. His parents can’t afford a new pair for him which is part of the reason he never admitted to needing them.
"I’d never do something like that," Raphael says with a cruel smile. "But I’m a bit clumsy," he says as he drops them into the hall of passing students. "Oops," he says unapologetically.
(prompt: asexual!fallen!Cas, canon-divergent: angels fall but Dean finds Cas right away and takes him home; no Gadreel, Sam sick but getting better)
They’re sitting on the couch watching television, Dean wedged between Sam and Cas, when Dean realizes just how comfortable this is. A flamingo flock is on the screen and Dean, despite his verbal objections to watching this, is actually kind of enjoying it.
On one side of him, Sam’s wrapped up in a blanket and sleeping sound, with his head resting on the armrest of the couch. He’s still sick but getting better, stronger every day. At this rate, he’ll be back on his feet in no time, and they’ll be hunting again soon. Though, Dean’s starting to like the downtime, what with not having to worry about his brother and friends in danger anymore. He thinks once Sam is better again, he’ll ask him what he feels about retiring.
On the other side of Dean sits Cas, human but adapting. He’s wearing a bulky t-shirt and fuzzy fleece pajama pants with space aliens and stars printed on them. They’re ridiculous, but Cas loved them at the store. Dean wonders sometimes if Cas misses his old heavenly perspective of the universe, but Dean’s too afraid to ask about him - too afraid of what the answer might be.
Cas glances and catches Dean’s expression before he has time to school it.

Dean and Sam are on a hunt, but Dean takes five to call Cas. Sam’s just standing there, leafing through their notes. Then Dean goes, “Okay, baby, I’ll call you later.”
Sam lifts a brow, but Dean doesn’t notice because suddenly he’s saying, “No, no, I didn’t mean it like that. You’re not a baby. Come on, Cas. You know I love you, jesus.”
And Sam can’t stop laughing because Dean turns red and says, “I didn’t mean - I didn’t mean Jesus!”
"Other people might look at me, but you see me. That’s where the difference is. You see right down into my soul, and I guess nobody ever did that before."-(via these-greatexpectations)
