oh man yeah, tbh the best thing about that personal space line is that it denotes that situations like this have happened before. also the best thing is that as much as Dean cites the need for personal space, he himself makes absolutely zero effort to back away.
and another best thing about is that yes, the fact of Castiel’s FBI ID reveals the fact of Dean making that ID and Cas sitting for the picture on it and maybe that’s where this whole personal space debacle started.
where Dean sits Cas down on a chair and adjusts his tie and fixes his collar and decidedly doesn’t look at Cas’s face until he’s finished and when he looks up Cas is staring at him like he does with those impossibly blue eyes and enveloping gaze and Dean gulps and licks his lips and Cas’s gaze follows the motion. and maybe Dean leans up and Cas leans down but somehow their lips touch and somehow Dean’s breath is lost but if it’s to be lost in Cas that’s okay, that’s better than okay, that’s enough to make his chest tighten, that’s—entirely too much.
so he pulls back, gathers his breath, and Cas’s eyes are blown wide and waiting for Dean to speak, so Dean says a little weakly, “we’ll have to talk about personal space, Cas.”
and Cas asks, “now?”
and Dean pauses, grins, and diving back in with a mission, whispers “no” into Castiel’s lips.
