destiel is a ship with a lot of powerful lines, and the words “I” and “you” are in almost all of them. there’s I need you; I’d rather have you; I’ll go with you; I did all of it for you; I’m not leaving here without you; I was getting too close to the humans in my charge, you; I don’t need to feel like hell for failing you; I did not leave you; and so on.
my very favorite line - the one I’ll remember for the rest of my life - doesn’t involve either “I” or “you”, though. this line is a lot more about “it”. It. What Dean and Cas have together, the one thing no one can take away from them.
this line was said when it all seemed to be falling apart, never to come back to what it was before. looking back now and seeing just how far those two have come, I see that was not the case at all.
"Dammit Cas, we can fix this!" "Dean, it’s not broken!”
that is the line I will take with me forever, because regardless of whether or not destiel becomes canon, it’s not broken.
It was not broken then. It is not broken now. It will never be broken.
