fic, SPN: the apartment (Dean/Castiel), PG13, for dc_everafter  
Title: the apartment
Author: janie_tangerine
Claim: The Apartment
Genre: romance, angst-ish.
Pairing(s): Dean/Castiel, Dean/Anna
Rating: PG13
Word Count: 14500 (main fic); 4400 (extra scenes)
Disclaimer: Supernatural isn't mine, The Apartment's script belonged to Billy Wilder and IAL Diamond (I suppose - also they're both deceased, so I just hope they won't hate me too much), nothing is mine except the changes I made to the original plot.
Warnings: attempted suicide, quite a lot of throwing up, touch-and-go mentions of prostitution in the Dean POVs. The first two kinda come with the package, though.
Summary: Castiel is an accountant in an insurance company who unwillingly lends out his apartment to his bosses for their extramarital affairs. Dean runs the elevators in the same company (and Castiel is quite not so incidentally in love with him) and he's dating the boss's niece. The situation comes to drastic consequences. But then again it's the way it crumbles, cookie-wise.
A/N: I just couldn't resist when I saw that I could claim that movie - it's one of my absolute favorites ever and I had been toying with the idea of writing a D/C take on it for ages. That stated, I fear that this is way less funny than the original was, but these people tend to make me write angst. Also, I couldn't decide if I wanted to make it just Cas's POV or alternate it, and then I decided to use Cas's POV only for the story and then write an extra with ten snippets of Dean POV because I figured I could show his side of things. But it's an extra - the full story is supposed to work on its own.
A/N 2 & art: major and heartfelt thanks to cassiopeia7 for betaing this with a, uh, restricted frame, time-wise, and then made an unprompted absolutely lovely banner for it. Which I love to pieces. ♥
