No, really. Someone try and explain to me how there’s still a doubt on whether Destiel is “THERE” or not in the show. How literal does it still need to get? I think we’ve gone beyond subtext at this point. One sided though it may be because frankly the Dean-side of it can still be stretched to dubious incredulity, considering how emotionally stunted that man is. But on Cas’ side? There is no more question on the dedication, and the love, for humanity and for Dean.
And, to be honest, Dean not feeling a single thing about it, denying the very blatant fact that Cas is important to him after all the shit and horror they’ve been through, is just an excuse from the audience trying not to see the obvious. Dean may not be on the amorous aspect of love (yet), but he is right there with Cas on a love strong enough to be willing to bring Cas into the fold as family. Blood brothers, they are not. But in Jensen’s words (of which I agree with), they are “kindred spirits” = profound bond.
So it’s rather aggravating to see the cast (and the showrunners, and TPTB) still attempt dawdling their way through in pretense that nothing is going on.
Cain & Dean Parallels - Extended
And they said they didn’t want to HINT at anything? There is no more HINT necessary at this point, TPTB.
There isn’t even subtext anymore. It’s already been said and done. Repeatedly. Especially in the last 2 episodes. What kind of ‘hint’ does it still need to acknowledge the elephant of Destiel in the room.
"Dean Winchester is saved."
Wouldn’t THAT be a nice closure for S10? It’d come full circle to S4.
I would love to hear that phrase once again, word for word. And hark, the angels sing, “Dean Winchester is saved.”
And hopefully not to the dying embers of Cas’ grace. I wouldn’t want that sacrifice again. But the show is evil, and the show has betrayed my trust over and over when it comes to Cas — because he’s always the ‘spare’ whenever I look at the ‘status quo’ of Supernatural. Status quo being Dean and Sam, and the rest are just dead and nowhere.
#sometimes my heart breaks #because dean is hopelessly in love with cas #and he’s so fucking angry about it #he can’t enjoy it #it terrifies him #because atrocious shit happens to people he loves #every single one of them #dean doesn’t see love as a benefit or a gift #he sees it as a burden #an achilles heel #a pit trap #he sees it as an accident waiting to happen #he’s a liability #anyone who loves him will die in the end #mom #dad #sam #bobby #cas #but cas keeps coming back #cas is a fucking angel of the absent lord #he’s wrath and wroth and power #he’s a hurricane in a bottle #and he’s not going anywhere #so dean you keep being angry #you’ve got one hell of a temper #but cas smote half of heaven because he was pissed #i think cas can handle whatever you throw at him #and love you in spite of it (via Deanlorean)

"Cas smote half of heaven because he was pissed"
I feel like highlighting that. And…
"but Cas keeps coming back"
Because there’s still a shit ton of fics where Cas is turned into some weepy doormat who can’t fight his own battles let alone assist, and it still annoys me. He smote half of heaven when he was pissed. That’s him blind with fury.
But on his most lucid moments (and even when not), he keeps coming back to protect Dean regardless of everything that’s happened in the past (and future, I bet). It takes someone with some balls of steel to do that and still be capable of love (especially when you were made to have none).
— Anyway, I’m just glad that Dean and Cas are now actually ‘talking’ this season. And I say ‘talking’ with a healthy dose of cynicism but definitely an improvement. What, it took 5-6 years and several deaths, a dash of insanity and a trip in purgatory to bring it here? About time, yeah?
9x09 part 2
I now have extreme hate towards the fact that Kevin just got torched. Why the hell was that necessary.
This totally cancelled any good feels I had from this ep at the start.
And once again, snafu. I have this urge to nitpick why that angel-mojo-lie was even necessary to begin with. Damnit.
Omg Castiel. That’s my Godstiel in the making minus the megalomaniac godhood attitude.
The one who did what he had to do and a reluctant warlord. I love it.
Not yet done watching. I just finished the part when Cas was on the phone. The first time he inhaled the angel grace, I went yay and then he confirmed it.
Batman and Robin feels
So, I did a rewatch marathon of Nolan’s Batman movies and I noticed something from the second movie that escaped me the first time around. I must’ve been too distracted by the sheer awesome of Batman, Joker and Two-face and Gordon being so perfect.
Anyway, what I failed to realize back then was that when Batman and Joker were having their party, Joker was beating Batman with a lead pipe. While inside a net.
I consider that a nod to the Jason Todd, Death in the Family storyline. A lot of people consider Death in the Family as the point in Batman’s timeline when things got darker. Less of the camp and perk of when the bright red Robin made the cape friendlier and more of the Batman Asshole extraordinaire.
And then in the second movie, it ends with Gordon destroying the bat signal, the death of a hero (Dent), the burning of a letter (Rachel), destruction of the Bat’s eye (Fox’ toy) and Batman believing he’s alone and should be alone now in the dark.
My god, I have new love for how a Robin-less movie still gave all the oomph of Death in the Family and the all encompassing impact to Batman’s character shift during that period in the comics.
… still remember the Castiel as The Last Unicorn theory I cooked up a few years back? That theory is still going strong now and has taken wings and started to fly. XD
Yeah, I just realized that…. while watching Psych.
I can’t really give SPN a proper review or even make long commentaries like I used to. These days, it feels more like I have random bouts of short thoughts for scenes. So!
1. His name is Clarence! My Megstiel as strange-friends self was happy with that reference.
2. Human Cas would make one hell of a hunter. He retained the reflexes of a warrior angel, and the knowledge of one. All he needs is to get used to this human limitation (aka weaker in brute force and actually feeling the wounds), and obvious necessities like eating, sleeping, pooping…. but yeah.
Is anyone else uncomfortable with this weekly lobotomy? Because this is a guaranteed train wreck that I’m watching. I’m already willfully ignoring the deus ex machina mode as it is, and this also feels like it’ll be a weekly thing.
When Sam said he’s good/happy, it’s like breadcrumbs made of neon glow in the dark stones, and with built-in tracking device and sirens. The incoming train wreck isn’t even subtle.
1. Castiel stripped!
2. Dean, you never learn.
Also, I want some Cas and Ezekiel bropast backstory. The fact that the title design for this season has wings is rekindling my interest for Supernatural.
I just want Cas to have friends and allies who don’t use him as a doormat.
So I read the Huffington interview of Misha. While generally, the Cas arc seems promising, I frown at the necessity of a sexual experience.
I intended this to be a longer post, but my brain just died trying to find the merit of yet one more fling/sexuality as some core aspect of one’s humanity.
Nonetheless, premise of fallen angels sounds good to me. I do wish Cas had an ally with him among the fallen folk, however. I can even understand why Cas would want to retire at this point. All he’s done is fight and fight and fight for the right thing, and nothing turned out right.
I watched the Castiel and Crowley TV promo. Feels….FEELS~~~ I got feels like whoa.
It brings me back to my Team Kings phase, and apparently that part of me is still waving flags.
Well then, I’m finally beginning my long overdue semi-marathon of SPN Season 8. I had to restart with ep 1 again since it’s been several months. Currently at ep 2, but I just wanted to stop by and go, “HAH”
Because my old theory ended up not being a theory anymore. That Cas left Dean to protect him.
Okay, that is all. I shall now continue.
"what i really don’t understand is…why to some people, not supporting LGBT means we are an asshole, disgusting and doesn’t deserve to live in this world?? talk about having the freedom to choose huh? YES we chose not to support LGBT so suck it up! don’t go around calling people disgusting..respect others as well even though we have different ideology…we don’t go around calling gay people disgusting so why should you call us NON-LGBT supporters disgusting??"
You just walk around saying your relative/friend made the wrong choice and is now unacceptable. It still means you’re an asshole. If you can’t respect LGBT, then what makes you respectable? Being straight? Please.
