Hah! More Named! Talk about a blast from the past. Can you believe in January it’ll be 4 years since I started writing it? Mind blown.
Okay, so this passage was one of the first ideas I had for the story. I knew from the get-go that Jesus was the one to create Castiel, but I didn’t know the circumstances in which it would happen. I didn’t know anything about it, really.
One day, I was taking my dog for a walk down Yirrell Beach in Winthrop (one of my all-time favorite beaches), and it had been overcast and kind of gloomy, but as I reached the end of the beach and began doubling back, the sun began to shove through the clouds and offered me one of the most brilliant sunsets I’ve ever seen. Much to my dog’s dismay, I stopped walking, sat in the sand, and watched.
As I watched, I began playing with the sand, crumbling it in my hands, watching it pour from between my fingers, and I felt incredibly big, almost too big to bear, and I thought, “This is creation: sand and sea and breath.”
I went home, busted out my laptop, emailed Tigbit (who was also beginning her Big Bang fic), and wrote in the subject line, “I have an idea.”
