'With or Without You' spans 26 years beginning December of 1988 (when Dean and Castiel are 15) and carries on through the year 2014. Not only do the relationship/lives of Dean and Castiel revolve, evolve and in some aspects, change forever... but so do the lives/relationships of everyone around them. The inspiration and title for this fic came from U2's With or Without You Yeah, we'll shine like stars in the summer night. We'll shine like stars in the winter light. One heart. One hope. One Love. --added lyrics during 1987 The Joshua Tree Tour
