This fic kills me. I just want you to know that. This is bookmarked in my special (non-porn) folder for the handful of fics that I can never stop going back to, for tears, for chills, for raw emotion and beautiful writing. So well done.

This is so lovely. You clearly did your research and were able to meld the lore here in such an effective way. SPN's Gabriel was such an amazing character and sadly underused. This is a great little piece.

As much as I loved (will always love) Gabriel I wish they had at least one scene with the group paying their respects, because he didn't have to care, he could have just left them to rot.

This is so beautiful I cried. Makes me miss him SO much.

He hears Dean call out to him over the sound of his own weeping, hears Sam holding him back, and mourns for the brother who will never enter the gate to greet him.

Dean, you were right. This is me, standing up.

"Gloria, Gabriel, Gavri'el, Jabrail. Brother." He will not falter. He will not fail. He will not forget.

They will all be the Strength of God now.- PERFECT ending.

Seriously, though, I wish the shown had shown mor of Gabriel-as-Archangel, not just Gabriel-as-Trickster. We got glimpses of it, but there was such a wealth of mythology that could have been explored, but won't be now.

Unless they bring him back. I still hold out hope for that glorious day...

Absolutely beautiful oneshot.

Lovely use of language, and the depth of Castiel's emotions I found very moving and believable. He was his brother after all.

I do tend to repress Gabriel's death (see: a lot) but this was a very nice canonical reaction to the his passing.

Keep writing,

Love Taluliaka.

I almost didn't read this cause I thought, hmmm... Castiel/Gabriel slash... no, thanks. But after reading "Named" I read it anyway, cause I knew it couldn't just be a silly PWP. And I am sooo glad I did. You write Castiel soo well. He is so deep, so serious, so sad, sooo compassionate even though at times he comes across as this man of stone. And you make of Gabriel so much more than just the trickster. Sure, he is that, but he is so much more! (I loved him so much in "Named".) Your writing, be it epic as in "Named" or short like this one is just beyond words. Thanks for all the love!

This was so sad but so deep as well. I like the way you added dept to Gabriel's character, especially the way you infused his Supernatural persona with the Biblical Gabriel. Castiel's admiration and love for him were also so very well portrayed, that they only made the loss so much more sad. I don't normally enjoy angsty fics, but you did an awesome job.

I honestly loved this, ~Ginger 0:3

This was brilliantly written, and very touching.

HA! I was just wandering around aimlessly on the SPN section when I came across Named. Delicious is fine, but I find this site better suited to my silly needs.


There are not many 'Castiel mourns Gabriel' fics, though all agree Castiel SHOULD'VE mourned Gabriel. Deeply and angsty. One thing that I've always enjoyed about your fics is how you bring in the holy speech to the characters. It's not something I often see and when I do, it's done poorly. Even for the brief sentence of Gabriel announcing the Son, I felt oddly moved. Dunno why, but I do.
