In a city where struggling artists crash at bartender's flats, and aspiring writers find inspiration from chapped lips and whiskey, something odd is lurking in the streetlamp shadows.
Paint leaves no space untouched in Castiel's studio flat, his laptop keys especially tainted with specks of blues and reds.
It's the same in Dean's apartment flat, though instead of paint it's liquor and instead of a laptop it's the overflowing recycling bin filled with glass bottles.
They each struggle in their own ways. Castiel with his career, Dean with his self-esteem. While they keep things hidden deep down and out of view from public eye, the public itself is in danger. A dark creature is at bay, stealing motivation and aspirations, forcing innocents into the unthinkable.
Dean and Castiel must fight this dark creature in the future, but will their own issues hold them back from saving the city?
Warning: Contains alcohol consumption and depression. Also minor sexual references (spoiler: basically they have a steamy make out sesh)
