what i love about cas is that he’s a gentle soul who likes bees and is happy just sitting and listening to music and he loves humanity so so so much and he can be so content with so little and he can be so so tender
but on the other hand he dug a bullet out of his stomach and shoved it into his brother’s eye so there’s that too
i used to be passive aggressive, but now i’m aggressively passive. don’t mess with me kiddo. i’ll be right here. i’ll fucking forgive you
when you wait for something to happen and it never does
when you find out an actor you think is cute is around 32 and you’re like “wow he’s really young”
that’s when you know you have a problem

I think I just tricked a bunch of guys at my work into thinking I’m car savvy.
They were all discussing different types of cars and one of them jokingly asked me what my dream car was.
Naturally, I said a black, ‘67 Chevy Impala.
They all got these really impressed and surprised looks on their faces and started nodding, saying things like “Yeah.” “Nice choice.” “That’s a good one.”
They think I’m a car person now.
|Anonymous said: Destiel is so CANON ITS NOT EVEN FUNNY. The tension between them is so cute and just gets worse every episode LIKE WHO DOESNT NOTICE THIS. I'm sorry I just had to make that point cause people who say it's not make me wonder if they're even watching the same damn show.|
The thing is, I would still argue that I can understand how it’s not obvious to everybody and TPTB still leave it open to interpretation. But with season 8 I definitely think it was very noticeable. I mean, I can understand how you could still interpret their relationship as strictly platonic but I don’t understand how anyone could claim that destiel shippers are “grasping at straws” or are crazy for seeing it differently. There were so many destiel moments, queer references, and very romantic tropes and romantic cinematic display. I definitely think it was a lot more obvious to Queer people, but I don’t understand how Destiel shippers can be made out to be so crazy and over the top when season 8 was so in your face with Destiel. So yeah, I mean, I see it, most definitely and I ship it. But I can still see how non destiel shippers could overlook a lot of things and view Dean and Cas as 100% platonic. I personally wouldn’t go so far as to say it’s Canon but I definitely think their relationship can easily be interpreted as more than platonic love.
So, I don’t think other fans think Destiel shippers are crazy for the interpretation. I think they mostly think they’re crazy because they harass the actors, writers, and other fans about it.
Obviously not all of them, but enough that it’s caused trouble for everyone.
It seems mostly a recent thing too.
The writers are careful enough to build intense character relationships with several characters. I don’t think Dean and Cas is anything special, aside from the fact that Cas is the only character that gets a comparable amount of screen time to Dean and Sam, personally.
I don’t think it’s about ‘queer’ people seeing into it anymore deeply either. ‘Tumblr’ people, which has a large non-heteronormative population, maybe. But not ‘queer’ people specifically .
But yes. Basically Anon’s interp is a huge problem with the fandom.
When the writers change the script so that /every/ scene with Dean and Cas reinforces their heterosexuality, instead of winking at the fans and giving them something cute, you know they’re getting tired of the Fandom’s bitching.
Ok, I totally respect your opinion and I can definitely understand how a majority of people can overlook or completely miss the queer subtext. But I gotta call out on people hating destiel shippers for “harassing the writers” and such. That’s a very small part of the fandom and Wincest shippers have that problem too in their fandom. We both cringe when that happens.
But I’m gonna provide you and anyone else interested in trying to understand a lot of Destiel shippers perspective and why we feel lead to believe that Dean and Cas’s relationship is a bit more special than any other outside relationship Dean has and not just because Cas gets more screen time than these other outside characters. And I do have to tell you that it is in fact a lot of queer people, even outside of tumblr, who are noticing it. Hell, even my little brother who doesn’t understand or notice shit about queer subtext admits that when he watches Dean and Cas scenes he thinks they seem more than platonic. My old coworker who loves Supernatural but is still a casual viewer, I asked her what she thought about Dean and Cas and she outright said, “I think they seem like they’re in love with each other.” When watching with my mother in the room, she looks up from her laptop, watches a Dean and Cas scene and turns to me and asks, “Are they together romantically?” We’re not insane. And it’s kinda frustrating when we’re constantly made to feel that way. It’s not that we don’t think everybody should ship Destiel. But we don’t enjoy being made to feel like insane fans “grasping at straws” when the subtext is so blatant. It feels quite unfair. And in all honesty, if TPTB have absolutely no intentions or are not even entertaining the idea of canon destiel at the end of SPN, then I wish they’d just cut it out all together. Anyway, here are some links to metas and such about Dean’s possible bisexuality and Destiel metas:
- queer references in season 8 x
- Destiel parallels in season 8
- small list of reasons why a lot of people believed Destiel was on its way to becoming canon after season 8
- less than hetero Dean meta
- Dean Winchester was, in fact, named and based off of a bisexual character in the first place.
- Dean looking a teensy bit jealous when Cas is being hit on or experiencing sexual/romantic feelings with or for someone
- And Sam could’ve said to dean “or are you into dick now?” but instead he said “or are you strictly into dick now?”
- Also the Cowboy Junkies reference Dean makes in season 8, the episode after Cas beats him bloody, heals him, apologizes and then disappears with the angel tablet… kinda blatant to a lot of us. a couple of Cowboy Junkies most well known songs are "Misguided Angel" "I said Papa, he’s crazy and he scares me but I need him by my side. Though he’s wild and he’s bad, and sometimes just plain mad. I need him to keep me satisfied…. Misguided Angel love you til I’m dead.." and "Angel Mine" "And I can’t promise that I’ll grow those wings or keep this tarnished halo shined, but I’ll never betray your trust, Angel mine."
This isn’t even a quarter of all the metas written, many being written by cinematography majors and experts and tv/film production teachers, students, and professionals.
Again. I’m not saying it IS canon. I do not think it is. But there are a lot of reasons why some destiel shippers already interpret it that way and they’re not crazy to do so. And as far as harassing the writers goes, yeah I don’t and have never agreed with that but we also have to take a hard look at the content that has been presented to us on screen and understand that there are going to be Queer fans who feel they’ve been cheated. And there were a lot of fans who felt disrespected when they were told that Dean could only be queer if it “served the plot”. Queerness shouldn’t have to serve the plot. It’s never served the plot for any character to be straight. So yes, that was an insult to queer people. And it’s not that destiel shippers are really upset about “not getting what they want” it’s the feeling like they have been lead to believe and blatantly hinted at with queer subtext and yet told that they’re crazy.
Anyway. Just trying to give another perspective. <3
“It’s never served the plot for any character to be straight.”
If there’s a heterosexual relationship driving the plot (abducted significant other, romantic interest), it kinda does.
I feel like it’s more that the relationship drives the plot. Not the sexual orientation of the characters. That’s just a part of a person’s identity. When a character is straight it’s not a big deal. No one is shocked.
There are countless tv shows with heterosexual characters who’s heterosexuality is not part of any plot. You don’t see tv shows with heterosexual characters whose entire plot revolves around their straightness. But we get plenty of shows and stories with queer characters whose entire plot and story revolves around their sexuality. But you don’t need a plot for a character to be queer.
