whenever i see ppl ask this question it’s always like so shocked and appalled like how could anyone ever ship an incestuous pairing even though it’s literally one of the most popular ships in the spn fandom. like, can we please stop acting surprised that people ship sam and dean.
i understand that incest is gross and i don’t support it in real life, but there are plenty of gross things i enjoy in fiction but would never take part in in real life. separating fiction from reality is hard, yes, and i’m not going to pretend like i’m somehow better than people who can’t distinguish the difference. i, like anyone else, am capable of being affected by fiction, which is why i am careful how i talk about it and how i consume and process media in general. i mostly enjoy wincest privately and not on this blog.
but anyway, i ship wincest because there’s like….boat loads of canon evidence for sam and dean being in a grossly codependent relationship that’s been mistaken as romantic time and time again. they clearly love each other more than they love anybody else, to the point where they stopped the apocalypse with the power of their love. i mean, jesus christ, even if you don’t ship them romantically can’t you at least enjoy how broken and messed up and amazing their relationship is?
but not only that, there’s also things like zachariah saying that they’re erotically codependent on one another, sam calling dean a “male model type” when he couldn’t remember who he was, dean smacking sam’s ass and calling him “honey” when they’re mistaken as a couple. most of the time when i think about wincest, i’m not really thinking about them having sex. i’m thinking about the small things—messing with each other and flirting and having dumb crushes. (wait am i talking about wincest or cockles.) i actually stopped reading wincest fan fiction because it was all so sad, and i want sam and dean to have a happy, healthy relationship WAY more than i want them to fuck each other.
but wait til you hear i ship jaime and cersei, too, anon.
