So this past week was finals at my school. I hope I someday find whoever put them up in EVERY singe building on campus.
but dean getting hurt on a hunt and cas goes to heal him but when he’s already cupped dean’s cheek to do it he remembers he can’t anymore, so he just says a quiet “i-i’m sorry” but dean shakes his head and goes “hey, hey, no, i’m fine, it’s not even that bad”
Bless SPN for this scene. Bless Carver for turning the audience’s own preconceived notions on their head. Bless him for the archery symbolism that ties neatly back to not only the theme of hearts, but also Artemis whom we saw fall in love inappropriately according to the precepts of Olympus. Bless the two plaid-wearing, bearded scruffy men who are stand-ins for Hunters and Dean’s notion of über masculinity who also fall in love, but this time with heaven’s express and noteworthy nudge. Bless this rare (the cupid did say her arrows were being directed less and less frequently) and heaven-mandated event to be one of the last things heaven does before it stops meddling in the affairs of humans. Bless this event for happening in front of Dean and Cas. Bless Cas for his nonchalance and easy acceptance and Dean’s pause of consideration. Bless this neon sign toward Destiel becoming definitively canon.
I think it’s also really important to note that the bartender saved Cas’s life earlier on, so it’s clear that he not only seems tough, but that he demonstrates he actually is. It’s not a case of “appearances are deceiving and this guy you thought was like a Bobby Singer knock-off is actually just a big gooey puddle of gay love ha ha” it’s rather a case of “appearances are in fact accurate and haha jokes on you for assuming that just because he’s a plaid-wearing, shot-gun wielding manly man, he can’t also be attracted to dudes”
now we can’t say “the hunter and his angel”
i will end you
CASTIEL WILL ALWAYS BE DEAN’S ANGEL DAMMIT
HE WILL ALWAYS BE DEAN AND SAM’S GUARDIAN ANGEL
