okay but what about cas making the first move but almost completely by accident
like they’re watching star wars and castiel makes a passing comment about how he enjoys the prequels for how they flesh out anakin skywalker’s story (he relates to vader shhhhhh) and dean mocks him for it because wow they must’ve really screwed up castiel’s pop culture education and they end up in a wrestling match on the sofa
(and sam’s just like guys stop you’re getting popcorn EVErYWHERE i’m not cleaning it up)
and castiel just kinda tilts too far and his lips bump against dean’s. they both separate and stare at each other freaked out like holy fuck was that a kiss and oh i believe i just kissed dean.
did he like it? did i like it?
and well there’s only really one way to find out for sure ~
i have a lot of emotions about how misha decided to wear that terrible awful green and blue plaid jacket again the same day jensen wore a plaid shirt don’t even look at me
I’ve thought ever since the show introduced Naomi that she was the one who bible-camped Cas and Anna in seasons 4 and 5.
I had no idea it went way further back, and it’s basically swamping me with emotion.
Do you guys realize what Naomi implied?
Cas was there the night the angels killed the firstborn children in Egypt during the Exodus. And he refused to participate. That or he was so scarred by what they were forced to do that Naomi had to scrub it from his brain, but knowing Cas, I’m going with the first option.
Our little Cas, the foot soldier with a crack in his chassis, has been on humanity’s side since the Old Testament.
And thanks to Naomi, he didn’t even KNOW.
This also means that Naomi has spent literally several millenia trying to get this one unimportant angel under control and she couldn’t do it. He chooses humanity every time.
Hah, and Dean is totally the firstborn son in this equation, too.
UGH JESS YES WE CAN
season 7 is such a weird season in terms of the emotional arc (in that it tried to pretend it didn’t have one??) but you know i think it did accomplish something by the end of the season in terms of Dean and Cas’ relationship and Dean’s attempts to wrestle with his contradictory anger towards Cas (making him want to push him away) and his mourning of Cas (wishing he were back again), that by end of episode 23 you not only have Dean beginning to forgive Cas, but also have him begin to accept that their relationship needn’t be black or white: he can be angry with Cas and still be his friend, frustrated and still want him with him, so that in the end, “I’d rather have you, cursed or not”
purgatory honeymoon here we come~
