Author Summary: A man wakes up alone on the streets of Detroit. Lost and somehow forgotten, he's dressed in blood-soaked clothing without memories and without a name.

Review: At it's heart, this is a story of this man finding himself. He wanders from place to place, uncovering disturbing facts about an apocalypse-averting battle and his own bizarre and uncontrollable abilities that frighten him. We, the reader, can recognize him as an injured and confused Castiel, and follow him as he tries to unravel the interconnected mysteries of the supernatural battle and his own past and identity. He meets a host of well-drawn original characters, as well as some familiar faces, and has some terrifying run ins with demons and malicious people.

While it's listed as Dean/Castiel, it's primarily a character study road trip fic of an altered by still himself amnesiac Castiel. The Winchesters have more of a cameo in this story, but I love both their appearances.

It's well worth the read, but there is definitely some darkness before the dawn, so mind the warnings.
