au meme: dean & castiel in hannibal
i am embarrassed but i don’t regret drawing it
and then they fight over whose boyfriend is cuter
You’re boarding up heaven, and you’re locking the door behind you.
I found this scene so heartwrenching and heartwarming at the same time. Dean is comparing Castiel with E.T., he sees castiel as someone who came to him in his darkest hour, his time of need and helped him out of a seemingly impossible situation. No matter what happened after that, Castiel will always hold that special place in Dean’s heart; to Dean Castiel was the hero he needed, when he needed one most.
Loved this scene.
So this is it, E.T goes home.
Destiel in 8.23
My god..moose thank u..
This is the best thing I’ve ever seen
Imagine Person A of your OTP asking out Person B in a foreign language.
I don’t think I’ve ever laughed so hard in my life
No, look guys. Dean is begging to understand himself here. Begging. ”Dude, if anybody else, I mean anybody, pulled that kinda crap I would stab them in their neck. Why should I give him a pass?”
And all Sam can tell him is “Because it’s Cas.”, hoping Dean can understand the reason himself. Hoping he’ll finally realize…
Sam’s had enough, he’s just DONE.
We’re right back to the same language Dean was using throughout the post-Purgatory episodes. He’s saying exactly what he’s thinking, but couching it in anger, twisting it around into contradictions because he’s both still processing and also completely unable to process it. Same way he snaps at Cas they don’t need him, and he should stay in the bunker and heal up. Dean’s clinging to defense mechanisms because that’s all he’s got. He can’t deal with the question and he can’t deal with his pain.
(Not to say that this is the most mature response, but baby steps. It’s the first time in a while he’s done this, and the fact that Sam calls him on it suggests it will probably be resolved next episode.)
My favorite thing about Sam’s response is that “because it’s Cas” will never in a million years equate to because he’s our most trustworthy ally or he’s our friend we’ve never had problems with in the past. He’s trying to get Dean to place it internally that Cas get passes for a reason, the reasons Dean has been pining for him all season. Yes, good.
I think this is also a parallel to his question to Cas, “What broke it?” and the entire audience was screaming at their screens, “IT WAS YOU, YOU IDIOT!”
Because I was certainly screaming at Sam to say, “Because you love him, dumbass!”
