I’ve heard a lot about the intense angst of Twist and Shout and having seen some of the fanart myself I know I could never read it. So, this is for those of you who’re still reeling from your feels. Non-angst Destiel fics to help give you hope. A lot of them will be porn, won’t even lie, but many of them could contain a fair bit of fluff. Enjoy ;]
