as of writing this, there are 99,461 works in the castiel/dean winchester tag on archive
if you read TEN fics a day (regardless of length), it would take you 27.24 years to finish them all, which doesn’t account for new works being uploaded [14 jul 2021 alone, there were OVER 70 fics uploaded/updated]
the total combined word count of all of those fics is 811,128,651
because that number is incomprehensible, let’s rephrase. that’s EIGHT HUNDRED ELEVEN MILLION ONE HUNDRED TWENTY EIGHT THOUSAND SIX HUNDRED AND FIFTY ONE WORDS
assuming the average reading speed is 200 words per minute, if you locked yourself in a room and didn’t eat or sleep or live and ALL you did was read fic, it would take 7.71 years (67,594 hours) to read the entirety of destiel works.
let’s say, though, that you average two hours of reading fic a day. which is still pretty high.
IT WOULD TAKE YOU LITERALLY 92.5 YEARS TO READ THEM ALL STILL NOT ACCOUNTING FOR NEW WORKS
greatest love story ever told, y’all, and we’ve written 811,128,651 words of it
