woke up to a blood stain on my bedsheets wtf
say they did bring in someone new to be an endgame love interest for dean. they’d have to find someone who dean might not normally go for but makes him realize that it doesn’t matter as long as he’s happy. someone who takes him out of an extremely dark place and instills a sense of faith in him. someone who knows who dean is, has seen him at his worst, and accepts and loves him in spite of that.
someone who’s actually convincing enough to be good for dean.
that takes a fuckload of time and work to do, time that they certainly don’t have for this season - all on top of knowing that any kind of love interest for dean won’t go over well with fans when so many are already convinced dean and cas are endgame. because not only do we already have seasons 4-7 laying the groundwork for a more profound bond, not only does cas already fit all of those above points, the romantic narrative in s8&9 seems to be leading towards nothing but deancas.
we’ve seen dean risk his life for the greater part of a year trying to find cas in purgatory. we’ve seen dean pine and grieve over the fact that he couldn’t get cas out only to further discover he actually created a false memory because he literally could not deal with the heartbreak of cas not wanting to go back home with him. this all being a story arc that paralleled sam/amelia’s romantic subplot, no less.
we’ve seen cas choose dean over his own breathren time and time again because dean has been the only one to get through to cas, the one who inspired him to think for himself. and in turn, we’ve seen cas give dean a reason to believe in something greater. we’ve seen dean winchester - dean fucking winchester - admit that he actually needs someone, that he needs cas. not to mention that while dean makes such confession and cas is struggling against naomi, the set was intentionally designed to show the bisexual pride flag in the background.
we’ve seen dean witness (with cas at his side) that yes, two manly dudes can be in love, all the while hinting with a bow hunting tv show that perhaps they weren’t the only ones who were struck by cupid’s arrow.
we’ve seen dean finally start to figure things out about himself, things he’s slowly beginning to accept. things he’s interested in that he may not have felt comfortable having an interest in while john was still alive. we’ve seen an obscene amount of subtext alluding to dean’s not-so-hetero sexuality. we’ve seen dean on a downward spiral because of his co-dependent relationship with sam, forcing him to learn who he is by himself. we’ve seen cas on a similar journey to self-discovery as well, and while it’s disappointing that they haven’t had a lot of scenes together this season, knowing who you are and being able to stand firm in your own identity is absolutely critical to having a healthy relationship.
on that note, we’ve seen how dean and sam’s relationship contrasts to dean and cas’ relationship. dean is still having difficulty letting go and letting sam grow up, but with cas, dean just wants him to go out and find a life where he’s happy. dean normally refuses to talk about feelings with sam, but with cas, he’s been much more open (provided that sam’s life isn’t at stake). dean feels more at ease around cas, like he can be himself. plain and simple, dean is happy around cas. this is not to say that dean cares about either sam or cas more (obviously both men are extremely important to him) - just that dean, although still not perfect, is showing healthier behaviors with cas and learning what it means to care about someone without basing his entire life on them.
we’ve seen this season ask the questions, “what is love? how do i love? who do i love?” and along those lines, not only have we seen situations like cas being the “jilted lover” after being dumped or dean affectionately tending to cas after a brush with death, but cain/colette and garth/bess have presented us with parallels that further hint at a romantic narrative being set up for dean, parallels that cas fits extremely well. and more recently, we have dean’s room seemingly being set up to accommodate a second person.
this isn’t about wanting our ship to be canon.
it’s about the fact that literally nothing else makes sense.
I agree with all of the above, and I just want to add, I was thinking last night how utterly ridiculous it would be if they DID try and introduce a new character as Dean’s endgame love interest. I have said all along that I do think it’s possible — not likely, but possible — but…what a waste that would be. It would be utterly ridiculous to have us believe a character, that would likely only be in a few episodes due to there just not being enough time to flesh out a proper romance in the time we have left, could mean THAT much to Dean when he already has someone in his life that fits the bill tenfold. I would probably be angry for a very long time that they took the cowards way out, because really that’s what it would be.
While at the end of the day I would accept a new character if it meant Dean gets to be happy, it would literally make no sense whatsoever, which is why I’m not at all worried about it being something that’s going to happen.
i’ve been thinking about this a lot lately.
because yes, i agree with all of this. but i’d like to add that, if a female love interest is in the cards, then she should have been introduced last season, or earlier this season.
in a three act set-up, the first act lays the foundation. it establishes who the regular characters are, what they want, and what they need to do in order to get what they want. then it sets them in motion in order to achieve those goals. that’s what drives the next two acts, and those characters and goals are going to be your focus.
This post makes me so happy. It literally voices everything I have ever felt about Castiel being Dean’s endgame love interest.
The way I figure it, there are four options from here.
You taught me that actions
Spoke louder than words
And I lived by that rule
So why do you believe me

So let me tell you about the shittiest parent on the motherfucking planet.
I work at a grocery store and this man comes in with his 11 year old son. He buys a pack a cigarettes and a two cases of beer. The son was holding a two dollar drawing pad and placed it on the belt and I guess the dad didn’t notice it at first but when I was about to scan the pad he asked where’d it have come from and turned towards the kid and asked “Did you put that shit up there?”. He told me to put it back and then told his 11 year old child that he “ain’t paying for that gay ass notebook.”. So I looked at the kid, who was close to tears and saying how he ran out of paper at home and my heart broke. So I gave the pad to him, for free, and told the dad I would take care of it. I gave the kid some tokens for a game outside and said I would look forward to buying some of his drawings and paintings when he’s all famous. He kids face was so priceless and I thought everything was good. But then, about 10 ten minutes after giving the kid his notebook, I walked outside and saw this. The drawing pad all ripped up and tossed on the pavement. I could only imagine what happened in the parking lot, but I know that that poor kid heart is fucking ripped apart, just like this pad.
I’m fucking horrified that there are parents like this, who, just because it’s not masculine or gender specificthey won’t let their children follow their true passions or explore interests that lead to their happiness. Even more so, I’m horrified that parents don’t care about the fine arts anymore because it doesn’t have job security. Since when did it ever matter to a child if their passion makes them money or not? Parenting is about supporting whatever makes your child happy. Have some fucking consideration for your child’s wants not your homophobic and anti-art ideals.
Everybody needs to see this
it’s back, and i will not NOT reblog it v.v ever
