Crowley wouldn't say that he was worried. It had little to do with any particular affection for Dean that he may or may not have, and was simply some added insurance on his investment. All his eggs were in their basket, after all. It was simply to ensure that while the Winchesters continued on with their inane, sentimental need to hurl themselves into harm's way, that it would be slightly more difficult for them to actually off themselves.

When Crowley appeared in the motel room, a smug curl of his lips, there was something small, dark and squirming in one of his hands. Sam had just left -- one might almost think that he planned these things; sometimes he did. He didn't expect Dean to take to this particularly well at first, but Crowley wasn't giving the man a choice.

"Hello, darling."

It wasn't that Dean had any specific problems with Crowley, but after everything with Meg and fucking Ruby, Dean just wasn't crazy about being around demons. Not that he ever had been, but it set him even more on edge now. As far as demons went, Crowley was tolerable enough, but he was still a demon and Dean held no illusions of why he was helping them.

When the demon appeared, Dean gave him a long-suffering look. He'd been about to take off his pants and relax with some magic fingers. Demons ruined everything. Then he noticed the little squirming thing and indicated towards it with his head.

"You eat puppies now?"

Dean eyed the puppy carefully. It looked harmless enough, but then so did Cas. Actually Cas looked more harmless than your average puppy, if Dean was being honest.

"You know, between the messed up brother and the drunk angel on my shoulder, I don't know that I have room for another pet, thoughtful as that is."

Dean wasn't sure what about him screamed puppy-lover. Sure, he liked dogs fine, but he wasn't the kind of person who went around owning one. Still, he couldn't help reaching down to pet her. He was a sucker for puppy eyes, whether they were coming from his brother or an actual puppy.

Dean snorted.

"How the fuck is some puppy going to keep me safe? I think I'll be too busy keeping it safe from all the things I hunt."

But he was already scooping her up so she could sit on his lap. Okay, he really was a sucker for floppy ears and eager kisses and if Crowley tells anyone about this, it's holy water bathtime for him.

"And it's not like I try to get myself killed. My job's just not safe."

It was one time!

He was trying to eye the dog suspiciously, but she was just so cute, so he kept petting her softly instead.

"So, what? You're psychically linked to a puppy?"

He tried not to smile, but he couldn't help it. Shit, this whole thing was just so bizarre.

"And I don't need a demon looking out for me. I have Cas and Sam and I can lookout for myself, anyway. I'm fine."

But the puppy was really cute and she seemed to be really comfortable in Dean's lap. Dean could stand to keep her around. He bent over his lap to look at her closer.

"What's her name?"

Dean laughed and wrapped his arm around the puppy, looking into her eyes. He was ignoring the comments about himself and Cas. Crowley didn't know what he was talking about. Dean could take care of himself and Cas.

"You look like a Mary. Do you like that?"

He took the resulting nose lick as a yes and grinned wider.

"I think she likes it."

No one had ever given Dean a present like this. It was weird, but she seemed like something really special. He was going to take good care of her, even if he wasn't crazy about where she came from. It wasn't her fault a demon gave her to Dean.

"So how does your link with her work? Do I have to change in the bathroom from now on?"

Looking away quickly, Dean tried to busy himself with playing with Mary.

"You know, Cas can get away with shit like that, because I know he doesn't know any better. You can't."

The attention was strange. Sam was the one who wanted a dog. Why was Crowley always going through Dean when he had to know that Sam was easier to deal with. Still, it was nice that she was his. She felt like she belonged with him and he wondered how much of that was Crowley pulling some weird demon mojo and how much was real, but it didn't really matter, because she was sweet and if she needed someone to feed her and take her for walks, Dean could do it.

"And I'm not going to let her get hurt. What kind of monster puts a puppy in danger?"

Dean eyed Crowley and muttered, but there wasn't really any bite behind his words.

"Great, well I'll be bathing in holy water from now on."

The last thing he needed was a demon with sexual designs on him, though at least Sam was getting a break for once. It was weird, anyway, watching Crowley touch Mary so fondly. He wouldn't have pegged Crowley for the kind of person to like cute, cuddly pets and definitely not one to give them to people, but Dean wasn't going to complain. At least she seemed happy.

His eyes flickered up to Crowley at that second point, though. He knew Crowley needed him, but it almost seemed like Crowley actually cared beyond just Dean being useful to him. Weird.

Well, of course she liked Dean better. Dean was cooler and she was a smart dog. He could already tell that much. She was more clever than Dean had ever given dogs credit for and she was still young. He was pretty sure his dog was going to take over the world, but she liked him, so it was probably okay.

At the sound of Crowley's voice, Dean groaned and curled closer to Mary.

"Me or the dog? 'Cause I don't think you can give coffee to dogs."

Dean stretched, blanket falling off of his bare chest. He was trying not to smile, really, but he couldn't help it. Waking up to coffee was pretty rare when you lived out of a car with your brother.

He sat up, careful not to disturb Mary too much, and leaned back against the headboard. There was nothing weird about letting your adorable puppy sleep in your bed. It was supposed to just be that first night, anyway, but it had somehow got extended a little.

He reached out for the coffee.

"So, what are you trying to get out of me?"

Dean was really too tired to notice the looking or the flirting. He hadn't slept well the night before and he really could use some good, hot coffee. The only thing that had kept him in the bed for most of the night was Mary sleeping next to him.

Still, he knew that Crowley didn't just do nice things and much as he liked Mary and the coffee, he was waiting for the other shoe to drop. Half of him was almost scared Crowley was going to take the dog back and Dean had already started to think of her as his own. He's never had much to himself and she was really something special. She wasn't even bad in the car. She settled on the backseat every time they got in, occasionally sticking her face between the seats to see what they were doing if she got restless. He had to pull over more now, but he didn't really mind.


He noticed Mary twitching and waking up and reached over to pet her gently. Yeah, he was a sucker for coffee and a sleepy puppy. Sue him.

Dean sipped the coffee, eyeing Crowley warily. The last time he kissed a demon, he'd wound up in Hell a year later. Dean wouldn't go back there, not for anything short of Sam's life.

"Not happening, buddy, and not just 'cause your meat-suit is a dude. I'm not making any more deals."

Even if Mary was just about the cutest thing he'd ever seen, he wasn't getting roped into any more deals--not for all the coffee in the world.

"You can take the coffee back if that's what you're after."

From: [personal profile] righteous_bro
Unortunately for Crowley, Dean's pretty slow to the party even when he hasn't just woken up and the concept of Crowley wanting to kiss him was possibly more foreign than the idea of angels had been before he'd gone to Hell.

"So, then what are you playing at, here?"

But if his soul was safe, he was going to keep drinking the coffee and petting the dog. No sense letting Crowley's weirdness ruin what might be the most pleasant wake up he's had in years.

Date: 2012-04-18 02:25 am (UTC)
righteous_bro: (What the fuck?)
From: [personal profile] righteous_bro
Dean rolled his eyes, head falling back so that he was looking at the ceiling.

"Intended what? You're talking like some Victorian romance--" His eyes shot to Crowley's face. "No. No way. It is too early for this."

It was bad enough Dean had to put up with Cas making cow eyes at him half the time. At least Cas had no idea what he was doing. Crowley wasn't nearly that out of touch. Holy shit.

"So... the dog and the coffee? These are you trying to woo me?"

Dean didn't want to admit that it was probably the best wooing he'd had thrown at him.

"Shouldn't you be asking Sam for permission or something?"

Date: 2012-04-18 03:23 am (UTC)
righteous_bro: (Thinking)
From: [personal profile] righteous_bro
"You know I'm not interested in dudes, right? Or demons."

He played with his coffee cup for a minute, then at Mary.

"And you can't have the dog back, either. She's very particular and no one else would know how to keep her happy."

That was entirely untrue. She was a pretty easygoing dog, even as a puppy, but Dean liked her and she wasn't going anywhere.

"Of course I wouldn't listen to Sam. He thinks dating demons is A-Okay."

Not that Dean was bitter or anything.

From: [personal profile] righteous_bro
Yeah, that was usually how it went when Dean went after women. That wasn't really comforting, though, because he usually got those women to sleep with him eventually. Then again, he did have a very charming smile.

"I guess you're welcome to try."

He shrugged and reached for the danish. If puppies and coffee and pastries were how Crowley tried to win someone over, Dean was happy to be on the receiving end, even if he wasn't really interested in what Crowley was.

He scratched behind Mary's ear. He'd grown attached to her at an embarrassingly fast rate already. Sam was pretty annoyed that he'd gotten a dog without talking to him first, but it wasn't like he'd planned her and Sam was clearly just jealous, anyway.

He was charming and the fact that Dean could admit that, even to himself, was unsettling. Crowley could be a real dick when he wanted to be, but he was also good at making people forget about it a minute later and making them forget he was even a demon at all.

Dean couldn't afford to let his guard down, so he just ate his danish and kept an eye on Crowley.

"So, should I expect this to happen again? Because I'm not sure how well Sam will actually react to you bringing me breakfast if you catch him in the room when you do it. I didn't really tell him that you gave me Mary."

Because she was clearly not evil. She was entirely too cute to be and he wasn't going to let Sam put her through tests to prove it.

Date: 2012-04-18 08:02 am (UTC)
righteous_bro: (Confused)
From: [personal profile] righteous_bro
Alone with his puppy and about a million questions, maybe. He'd had no time to react and his lips were still tingling. After a minute, he looked down at Mary.

"I have no idea what that was. Do you?"

Her answer was less-than-helpful, but he couldn't really hold it against her. He gave her the last tiny bite of his pastry and pet her.

"At least I get you out of it, though, huh? You're worth putting up with a crazy demon who probably doesn't want me dead."

Then he remembered what Crowley had said about the roses. He finished his coffee and got dressed before taking Mary out for a quick walk and leaving her food and water. Crowley might have just saved them days of work on this case.

In the end, Crowley's information had saved Dean from a broken leg and a dead brother. He would have to actually thank the guy next time he popped up.

He found that having a puppy excited to see him when he got back made hunting a little less weary. Instead of coming back to a sterile motel room and passing out, he came back to a dog that needed a quick walk and a ton of attention. She would jump on him for a few minutes and then they would settle on his bed and he would pet her until he fell asleep. Sam kept teasing him about it, but Sam was just jealous.

Dean groaned. He was already awake, but he wasn't awake enough to be ready to face Crowley, not that he thought he would ever be awake enough after he'd kissed Dean. He did perk up a little when he noticed the smell of coffee, though.

"Thanks, uh... for that heads up with the flowers. We were totally off-base on that hunt."

That was about all he could make himself say on the matter. He wasn't going to get emotional and talk about how Crowley had probably saved Sam's life. Crowley could just figure that out or whatever.

Dean wrangled Mary gently and pulled her into his lap.

Dean took the coffee with one hand, the other still on Mary.

"Tell me you didn't bake those."

This was too much. Dean could barely wrap his brain around the kiss and now Crowley was bringing him muffins. This was just not happening. He was dreaming. A djinn? No, he wouldn't wish for this. A really twisted djinn?

Whatever, he can't remember the last time he had a warm muffin.

Date: 2012-04-18 06:45 pm (UTC)
righteous_bro: (Smiley)
From: [personal profile] righteous_bro
Dean took his hand off of Mary to grab one. She lifted her head, look somewhere between questioning and annoyed, but he'd give her a little piece without any blueberries later, so he figured she'd understand.

He took a bite and it was actually... well, it was really good. Who would have thought that demons could bake? No one's baked anything for Dean since he was a little kid, back before his mom died. He's had some fresh-baked thing, but never things that were baked for him.

He smiled, even if he didn't really want to. He was starting to forget why he should be discouraging Crowley at all.

righteous_bro: (worldview: destroyed)
From: [personal profile] righteous_bro
Dean wasn't sure if it was the fact that it was fresh and warm or the fact that they were made for him or something else entirely, but it really was a good muffin as far as he could tell.

"It's good. I wouldn't have pegged you as the baking type."

Did Crowley have to sit so close? God damn, he's just right there. Was he going to kiss Dean again? Dean wasn't even sure how to feel about that. He didn't really want him to, per se, but the idea didn't bother him as much as it probably should have.

righteous_bro: (:|)
From: [personal profile] righteous_bro
Dean's eyes darted to Crowley's mouth. He wasn't stupid. He knew why Crowley was sitting so close. He wasn't going to give the demon the satisfaction of knowing how uncomfortable he was.

He leaned back, sharing a tiny piece with Mary and trying to focus on her and not on the demon who was doing a great impression of Cas.

"Well... you're good at it, I guess."

Not that Dean had a lot of home-made baked good to compare it to.
