Asmodeus is also typically seen as a demon of lust- twisting people's sexual desires against them, and Shedim are sometimes not always seen as malicious. Do what you like with this info.
Yes! I was jumping up and down all summer wondering about how lust could fit into things with Asmodeus (cos it feels inevitable at this point in the Destiel story, now it’s SO fanfic and blatant) and now this…
The Song of Solomon
The lovers part of the Bible. It’s basically Bible porn. It’s all about lovers writing love notes to each other about how much they love and long for each other. I shit you not.
Which of course I am linking to Dean/Cas given that Dean thrust it at Cas’ and Dean’s “child” who is a Cas mirror and it talks about LONGING I mean…. ;)
So yeah, this plus the imagery of Dean behind bars all episode… makes me really hopeful that as once Cas comes back the obstacle to Destiel being canon will now move from internal (them not addressing their own issues like Dean’s self acceptance and Cas’ depression and self worth) but now external, one being ripped away from the other, which in part is what I wanted from 12x23 with Cas’ inevitable death, so we could see Dean’s grief and longing.
I would love to see some from Cas, for a short time obviously because we can’t have Dean and Sam separated for toooooooo long (but again, end of the codependency means it CAN happen and I’m so here for this), but yeah Dean being banged up somewhere and seeing Cas working with Sam (and maybe Jack but who knows, it could easily be Jack who’s a part of locking him up) and showing us more blatantly HIS side of the love story running around depressionless like “WHERES THE HUNTER?” Aka parallel to purgatory Dean… cos we know Dabb loves a callback ;) With some kind of Asmodeus - induced storyline around lust exposing that they love each other ROMANTICALLY….
THIS ^^^ WOULD BE MY ULTIMATE SEASON 12 WISHLIST.
I don’t want to be deluded, but I would love this, or a variation of, so much.
