Summary: Sam has lost his soul, and it's up to the angel Castiel to collect the shards and return them to him without letting anyone know what Cas really is ... but Sam's girlfriend Rueby and his brother Dean stand in Cas's way ....
A fairy-tale-esque retelling of how Sam's shattered soul/mind got put back together, based on the plot of Princess Tutu.
There is absolutely nothing normal about this fic (just like there's nothing normal about Princess Tutu), but hey, death to normalcy!
And if a show named Princess Tutu sounds lame to you, give it a chance! It is actually awesome. Needless to say, since I am probably just about the only fan of both shows on the planet, readers will be people who like one of these shows who will give this fic a chance.
Princess Tutu and Supernatural are two of my favorite shows ever in the history of the world. Once I started noticing the similarities between the two shows in terms of plot, theme, and character, I couldn't resist writing this rather psychedelic fic. (Many thanks to septembers_coda
for helping me flesh out which characters and plotlines corresponded on each show.) Nonetheless, the differences have prevented me from having to include many, if any, spoilers for either show. Because both shows are so wonderful and similar, I have to recommend each to fans of the other, if Supernatural fans can tolerate ballet and Tutu fans can tolerate horror, weaponry, and lots and lots of dick jokes.
There's no particularly deep reason why Cas is a girl here. Castiel in angel form is genderless, and Princess Tutu/Duck is a girl, so it just made sense. It ended up working well for the story; plus, it's hilarious casting Gabriel and Balthazar as petty teenage girls. ;-)
