Thanks: I want to THANK myfriendfredric. I would have DIED without her! Her Beta'ing and her advice, and her breathing made this fic happen! Without her, I think it would have never happened. And thanks to my fabulous artist space_zombies.

Please, please, don't take this the wrong way because I really don't mean to offend you or anything, but you may want to recheck this story of yours. I was so happy to find another Dean/Cas fic and started reading chapter one, but it's so difficult to read as you are changing from present tense to past and back all the time. It's really irritating and English isn't even my mother tongue...
Your summary sounds interesting and I think it would be a pity to have the story spoiled by such a thing. Again, no offense...

I just read the first chapter. And I'm really enjoying it. I didn't notice anything with the tense changes. It looked ok to me. :)
BTW any chance of a PDF.

First, I want to say that taking on the BigBang for a first fic is not only a great challenge, but an excellent achievement, and you should be proud.

However, you may have noticed that a lot of BigBang writers have multiple betas, and there's a good reason for that: different betas have different skill sets. Some betas have an excellent sense of continuity and help fill in the plotholes. Others have a skill with character development, and help you retain the sense of identity in established characters like Dean and Cas. Still more are militant grammarians and word nerds, who will not only wrangle those tenses into submission, but battle the typo-gremlins on your behalf.

What you need at the moment is a militant grammarian/ word nerd. For example, along with the tenses, I noticed something you definitely want to fix in Part 3:

“You have the flu. Your immune system isn’t fighting it correctly. If you’re not careful, it will turn into ammonia."

Ammonia is a caustic chemical solution. Pneumonia is what happens when the flu goes into overdrive. (It wasn't a funny moment in the fic, but I'll admit I giggled at the typo.)

I know you are still fixing things. For all I know, you are sorting things out just fine. But don't hesitate to reach out to the grammar geeks in the audience.

Congratulations again your first bigbang fic, and welcome to the writer-sphere of the fandom. :)

(PS: I had to go back and edit my own comment. Even word nerds are not immune to typo-gremlins. I now swallow my dose of humility. LOL)

I think this was quite well done for a first fic. You should look into spelling/grammar errors/typos as they can some times distract from the flow of the story. I liked the premise and hope you continue writing.
