[Rec] Alouette by anactoria

HEY SO I spent the first months of my relationship with SPN as a super Casgirl. My Casgirlishness predates my entrance into fandom/fic, though, so... little known fact! That is not represented in my fic bibliography whatsoever. XP I also spent most of S8 as a temporary Casgirl, but again, I wasn't around in fandom very much for S8, so it was probably equally difficult to tell. XD

But for whatever reason S11 (irrespective of Castiel's actual role in S11 canon thus far) has been giving me these epic resurgent Casgirl feelings. Lest these feelings fly under the radar of this journal YET AGAIN, I wanted to rec this wonderful 11x01 tag especially aggressively! :DDD

Title: Alouette
Author: anactoria
Characters: Hannah, Cas
Rating: PG-13
Warnings/contains: Spoilers for 11.01; now Jossed by 11.02
Word count: 1500
Summary: Heaven sends Hannah to deliver its justice.

Commentary: I can't copy my comment here like I usually do (is this laziness, or does it result in me making sure to write better comments? idk) for fear of fic spoilers, but the language of this is gorgeously affective, clean and measured but deeply compassionate in a deftly composed way that rings so true to Hannah's POV. It traces what can only be described as deep, deep love (though some might call it treason; even when, often, the thing that is loved is also the thing yelling 'treason'!), renewal, and volatile change across the landscapes of S11 and S4.

Hannah's relationship with Castiel here, and theirs with Heaven, and Castiel's with Dean/the rest of humanity, is so evocatively construed. And what ends up happening in this fic, and the way that plays out in the prose, is one of those things I'm not likely to forget. <3333333
