Part of the 90 Proof series. Castiel’s addiction to Cheetos has grown worse, and after drinking and cursing, there’s only one real thing left to teach an angel: bowling. 3400 words, PG-13 for innuendo, cursing, and various other moments of stupidity.

“There are some things that are uniquely human experiences,” Dean said with a smirk.

Oh god. I'm so glad my roomie is wearing headphones because I was cracking my shit up from the time Dean and Castiel were quoting bible verses at each other until...well, the end. Especially when Castiel requested that Dean put his fingers in his holes. GOOD TIMES. :DDD

"Dad used to tell me that fog was just clouds coming down to nap and get a drink of water.”

OK, I havent got any further than that, and while I know the whole thing will be awesome, I do usually reserve feedback for when I'm finished... however I need to comment on THE CUTE. Yes, all caps CUTE right there. Once upon a time, Daddy W used to tell Dean the lil kindsa fibs we all tell kids. THE CUTE I TELL YA!

Hilariously, the 'angels bowling' comment comes from something my own mom used to tell me, when I was really little and scared to death of thunderstorms. The fog joke is something I told my niece and nephew when they were really little. XD

You know, your kinda evil. But in a good way.

I really, truly adored this. And you know how bad we all needed this - SamDeanCastiel that is - right now. Lovely work my dear!

yes Yes YESSSS!

Umm. Too Harry Met Sally?

Loved how Dean's solution to discovering Castiel's bowling expertise was to go for beer.

I think Sam, Dean and Castiel should road-trip all the time. Because Castiel's superiors think that that would be some form of punishment for ... whatever... being forced to traipse around in that "smelly meatsuit" in the company of lowly humans. Really, everyone wins that way, right?

Castiel learning Zeplin just to be able to spar with Dean FTW. :)

Loves this!!!!!!!! Nubs it! Nubs it! Nubs it!

I love how seemlessly Dean and Cas go from quoting scripture to quoting Zepplin. Heh.

And I love Sam egging Cas on.

Thanks for the laugh!

This series is so great. You always make me laugh. Bowling! Beer! The shoes! Holes! *G* I absolutely love that Dean learned bible verses to quote back at Castiel, and Cas learned Zeppelin lyrics to spar with Dean. Brilliant as Cheetoes, that's what you are.

This is SO awesome, as usual. May I suggest that there's still ONE thing that Dean hasn't taught Castiel? *g*
Castiel learning Led Zeppelin so he can quote them at Dean is PERFECT, and btw all the underlining adorableness that Castiel is doing what he does to amuse Dean made me go AAAWW. Angelic crush indeed :)

I think the current state of the boys in the show appears to have brought the crack out in everyone! That was just fantastic - Dean and Castiel trading Bible quotes followed by Zeppelin lyrics was just awesome!

And yes, I'd like my own angel please!

“There are holes I’d prefer not to stick my fingers into,” Dean called back with a smirk.

“That’s not what I heard,” Sam said.

Ahahahahahah, oh *Dean*.

Sooo adorable. I love this 'verse! And I love the mental image of Castiel making all the bowling balls roll around on the floor, for some reason. It just tickles me.

It's nice to see Cas in his fish-out-of-water, foreign exchange student role a little more. He's got all sorts of angelic badassitude when he's dealing with supernatural stuff, but get him into everyday human experiences and he's like a little kid. *smish*

ROFL! Is it so terribly wrong that I almost prefer this to what Kripke is doing to the characters? At least this almost gets me fired for laughing so loudly at work, and I'm not laughing at the real deal lately. Well done!

Castiel is a very flexible character, isn't he? Crack fic or angst fic, he's the perfect accessory to any story. Castiel and cheetos, Castiel and bowling, Castiel and beer--all delicious flavour combinations. Thanks so much for sharing.

SO MUCH FUN. plus, I didn't recognize the first Zeppelin quote, and I had to look it up!

I love Zep to pieces, but a lot of times I CANNOT understand what Robert is saying. I'm pretty sure he does not say "gooey leftist trends" in that song where he compares his girl to a car.

Ow, ow, my ribs!

This is so wonderful- and the Led Zep conversation totally counts as flirting, and there is something unbelievably precious about Sam teaching Cas to bowl.

(In my head, Dean totally got a stuffed toy at the next place they stopped at, because well,Cas was sleepy and hungover and looked like he might pout at any minute)

Hey ~ I'm here by way of [livejournal.com profile] crack_van. Oh, I am SO glad I'm alone in the office right now. There is no way I could have smothered the giggles or the smirks. And that would have been all kinds of awkward since I'm supposed to be, you know, doing actual work.

These stories are a delight! I really would like to see some of this on the show. Your character voices are solid - especially Dean - and you managed to place them in moments of utter absurdity and crackishness without losing who they are.

Nicely done!

I love that Castiel is still in costume when he vanquishes that demon. Him making quick work of the assmunching bat thingy just to "hang" was hilarious and quite charming. This was a wonderful capture of Dean in quiet contemplation of the weird that is his life: Dean wondered what it said about him that watching his brother teach an Angel of the Lord, a Bird of God, how to bowl was less foreign to him as a concept than the little family. He watched Sam comfortably palm a ball and point down their lane. Castiel stared up at Sam with close attention, and suddenly, having to wear the stupid shoes didn’t seem all that bad.

Castiel being an awesome bowler was a wonderful surprise, and I love that Sam's right and Dean doesn't participate in the game other than fetching beer after beer. This exchange made me laugh out loud: Castiel went over and lifted the pitcher down and drank directly from it.

“Aw, dude,” Dean said, stretching one arm out along the counter so he could rest his head on it. “Shit.”

Sam sat in one of the chairs near their lane and laughed.

Castiel put the pitcher down to catch his breath. “Wow.”

Dean sighed. “I hope AA takes angels.”

“Come down and bowl, Dean,” Castiel said, picking up his ball and holding it out toward Dean. “You can put your fingers in my holes.”

Sam howled with laughter, leaning over in his chair.
Oh, man, drunk Castiel is a riot.

I love that your Castiel has a crush on Dean and that Dean can't help but like it.

here via [livejournal.com profile] crack_van These are just great. I love Castiel but he's so under used in the series. I laughed so hard in places -the quote off was superb and I like the way you don't marginalise Sam either. The moment though when Dean looks over at the family and finds that concept alien -aww Dean! I hope you do more of this verse because I have a place in my heart for your Castiel.
Thank you for writing this!

Yoooouuuuuu are amazing.

My favorites:
“You just want Cheetos,” Dean said.
“Prove your sincerity by getting us more beer.”
“Teach a guy to drink and swear, and before you know it, he wants you to put your fingers in his holes.”
