Anonymous asked: I'm looking for some good non-ship fic reqs. Friendship is good though. Anything where Cas gets to be sweetly befuddled is high on the list too.
ahh i don’t read much gen fic unfortunately (though i think my idea of what is “gen” is really skewed when it comes to dean and cas, since their friendship is the basis of everything to me D;—i probably read more than i think i do then!) ! but i will always be delighted to rec this really excellent s5 based fic that if you haven’t read yet i would certainly do so now!!
Anonymous asked: i’m a little late to the party / sobfest and surely this has been noticed before but ‘hopeless wanderer’ by mumford & sons + spn 8.23 = ouch
ughhh yes it’s so perfect ;A; “Wrestled long with my youth/We tried so hard to live in the truth/But do not tell me all is fine”
but it’s hopeful for s9 too!! “I will learn, I will learn/To love the skies I’m under” :’)
i was searching my room frantically for my phone and in the process stumbled upon a box of old papers, and in it was this constellation map i had kept for some reason and it made me very emotional very quickly and i think you can see why
then i remembered that the bunker has a small observatory and oh god please can i have a scene next season with Cas stargazing
Anonymous asked: oh my god Cas on a motorcycle!! and he would love it so much because it would be the closest thing he would be able to have to flying, and it would almost be like having his wings back and he'd be so happy and asdfghjkl!
yes ahhh i think he’d love it so much ;A;
and also it’d be a nice excuse to get him into this outift and i think humanity as a whole could really benefit from it i’m just saying~
Anonymous asked: Your 'growing a soul' post reminded me of the Velveteen Rabbit - you're only real if you're truly loved!
oh no i used to love that story as a child and to imagine it as a cas story is too heartbreaking but beautiful!!!!!!!
Anonymous asked: wait why does no one assume that cas has lost his memories?
i have seen a few people assume that (i’ve even seen fic about it already!), although apparently misha refuted it at the a10 convention this morning so i doubt that’s in the cards for s9~
Anonymous asked: I was trying to figure out why Dean has been looking so much more attractive to me this season, and I realized it's because he's been happier much more often. He's really finally letting himself enjoy things, don't you think? And it shows in his face. I don't know, last season he looked almost old, bitter and sad, and this one he's got laugh lines. It's really fascinating.
ahh yes yes one of my favourite things about s8 has been how Dean has opened up so beautifully ;A;
also one of the reasons 8.11 is one of my favourite episodes, i love it when Dean gets to have fun and make friends and love and be loved and be honest and easy on himself because it’s the most beautiful sight to see. i hope he gets a lot more of that next season!! and gets to bring Cas along with that experience as well :’)
Give me Cas walking around the bunker topless or give me death.
topless Cas 2013 could still be a thing yet!! it’s Jeremy “Misha Collins is a brick house stud” Carver’s destiny to make it happen
i’m just saying i wouldn’t object to the opening shot of s9 being Cas walking down the hall of the bunker, bleary-eyed from sleep, bedhead ridden and shirtless on the hunt for a cup of coffee
i mean that’d be cinematic art right there
Anonymous asked: my brother was watching 8.23 with me and at the end of the episode all he could do was sing "it's raining men, hallelujah!" and i jUST
aha i’m surprised anyone managed to form coherent thought watching that scene for the first time, my heart was beating so fast i couldn’t speak!!
Didn’t Anna rip her own grace out to escape heaven? These angels have been forcefully expelled so it might be different? It’ll be interesting to see about the vessel-less ones, though.
she did, though i thought there was strong implication that the fallen angels this time would all be in a similar state to Castiel?? but that was left extremely ambiguous, probably on purpose, so yeah who knows! but it’s true they might just all be in a similar state to Castiel’s “fall” in s5 where he never actually lost his grace so much as had its power sapped by division and distance.
