sam being stuck in the bunker for weeks while he recovers (because there’s no way in hell dean is going to let him out until he knows for sure that sam is healthy again), kevin taking care of sam while dean and cas take charge of a hunt, making him food and keeping him company because kevin has been alone for so long and sam has been through so much and the two of them desperately need some positive human contact
kevin trying to teach sam the language on the tablets even though he barely understands it himself, sam following along as much as he can but not really getting it, the two of them giving up and deciding to play card games instead (sam teaches kevin to play poker, kevin teaches sam how to play magic: the gathering)
sam and kevin becoming close friends over the next few weeks, bonding over movies and books and how much they love vietnamese food and hate americanized mexican food, finding that they have a mutual love of poetry and a distaste for shakespeare, sam being completely appalled when he learns kevin hasn’t seen the original star wars movies because seriously, what kind of nerd is he and promptly sitting him down for a marathon
kevin falling asleep and dropping his head onto sam’s shoulder halfway through return of the jedi, sam’s stomach giving an uncomfortable lurch, heart jumping out of his chest at the contact as he realizes oh, oh, he never saw this coming and now he’s completely screwed
sam waking kevin up before he can sleep too long, kevin sitting up with a jolt, shouting something that sounds like “HIS NAME IS DARTH FATHER” and sending sam into a laughing fit before encouraging kevin to go to bed
kevin looking stunned at sam for a moment, heart pounding before stumbling to his room, thinking that he’d do anything in his power to see that gut-wrenching dimples-and-sunshine smile all the time
Season 7 GIFs by waywardism
Maybe most of you have seen these already, but waywardism has been kind enough to GIF certain scenes from the first episode or two, setting snippets from my ongoing Season 7 analysis underneath. Since the visual really, really helps reinforce the points made, you should go check them out:
- Damn it/ do angels need to breathe?
- I’m gonna watch some Asian cartoon porn… or is he?
- Sam doesn’t want to burst Dean’s good bubble
- Dean keeps the radio on
- Highlight reel of Dean’s body language in “Meet the New Boss”
- What’s the point if you don’t mean it?
Thanks, waywardism! YOU’RE THE BEST! :)
kevin stays in the bunker and cas finds his way back eventually and none of them can sleep and sam is still in pain, so dean cooks everyone bacon and omelettes at 2:00 in the morning and they sit together and eat it in silence until sam cracks a joke to break the tension and eventually they all burst out into hysterical laughter because what else can they do?
for the next few months they hunt while they wait for the next big bad to show up, kevin tries to figure out how to open heaven back up and sam does what he can to help with research while he recovers, and the four of them always make time to eat at least one meal a week together because this broken little family that they’ve built is all that any of them have anymore and they know they have to cherish it while they still can
and it becomes a tradition that when something shitty goes down or someone inevitably wakes up with night terrors, they all gather at the table at some ungodly hour of the night and dean cooks them breakfast
