how do i contact bts and tell them that their actual fans don’t want english songs from them and that we like bangtan’s music just the way it is, in korean, and that they should ignore the people who keep asking about it
uh was it just me or was Dean like turned on when Cas said 'I'm your Huckleberry' and ISN'T THAT SLANG FOR 'I'M THE MAN YOU'RE LOOKING FOR'????
Firstly (everyone’s screamed about this already; I’m still DYING fyi), Dean and Cas watch movies together (or Dean makes Cas watch his favourite Westerns like a cool, cultured hubbie should do).
God, just look at Dean’s lowkey scandalized face saying “Babe! How dare you suddenly forget the MOVIE Tombstone!”
(Meanwhile I’m laughing at Cas’ casual, vague summary of it because you have no idea how many times my mom talks like this when my dad would ask her if she remembered a certain action movie [he’s an action movie buff]. To my mom, the action genre consists of two things: guns and blown-up cars. That’s it. They’ve been married for 25 years.)
Secondly (of course), Cas watches these movies because Dean wants him to despite not having a fetish/obsession with Westerns and cowboy paraphernalia like Dean does. Happy Dean = Content Cas.
Yep–popularized by Tombstone, the phrase is 19th century slang for ‘I’m the man you’re looking for’ according to Urban Dictionary (or ‘the man for the job’).
oh man, yessss. Dean initiated the hug!! I screamed so loud it was unholy! He went in for that hug and grabbed is angel and never wanted to let go!
Mind-boggled Dean says ‘I do’ (juxtaposed by the R&J glowing cross of Faith and Hope; WHAT A WEDDING)
He goes in–
–holding tight, on the verge of tears (both of them; observe the loaded emotionalityin their expressions FML)–
–and we get–
You see that? YOU SEE IT?? DEAN’S truly UNDERSTATED BUT SIGNIFICANT SMILE???
Numerous feelings swirled inside his mind, but the most predominant one was SHEER lung-clearing RELIEF. HE GOT HIS ‘BIG WIN’. Cas is his happiness. His Everything.
Jensen has always been aware of his own acting choices for Dean. He is AWARE that Dean WANTED MORE out of this surreal moment (hence understated). Unfortunately he couldn’t yet bring himself to further vocalize those feelings being that 1. Sam was there and 2. the sudden reappearance of the Love of Your Life would pretty much render you speechless.
Cas: “How long was I gone?” Dean: “Too damn long.”
How long was ‘how long’? My canon timeline is a bit wonky – 2 weeks? A month?? Either way, to Dean his absence felt like 2 thousand years. *sobs*
Now don’t get me wrong, I read “Welcome Home, pal” as a deliberate ‘Buddy’ mirror. However, Toxic Hypermasculine BUDDY (who was killed by Feminine Dr. Vallens in 13x04 btw) replaced with the less-toxic-yet-bro ‘Pal’? This still counts as PROGRESS. Later, when it’s just both Dean and Cas in the Impala (behaving like the typical beloved husbands they are), Dean says: “It’s good to have you back, Cas”.
No ‘pal’.No ‘buddy’. Subverting the 11x23 Bro-logue that took place when it was also just two of them. Note the OVERT difference in atmospheric lighting/camera shots. Sunlight vs Cloudiness. Stability vs Crookedness.
(“Pay attention to Dean when he’s alone”, my friends. We should watch Dean’s vulnerability presenting itself over the next episodes or so because of course, Dean WANTS to show Cas. More than anything. But it’s important to acknowledge Dean’s niggling fears. What if he loses Cas again? I TRUST Dabb & Co to properly unfurl the remaining characteristic threads this season. Joint Destiel character progression ahead!!)
‘Cas is Dean’s Win’ textualized in happy, sparkly-eyed Dean’s own words (just in case 13x05 wasn’t substantial enough for the GA). He’s using his words. Learning to refer to himself and his respective emotions; not tied down by safe-zone “Sam + I” pluralities such as we/our/us.
Soon, Dean should rescind his use of buddy/pal/plurals towards Cas altogether. And 06 held brilliant narrative negative spaces associating Sam’s receptiveness to Dean – the What Is Dean Feeling vs What He’s Saying. His “Fair enough” (and shutting the closet door, wow symbolism!) depicts the Unsaid theme hopefully crossing into Leaving the Closet Door Open: direct communication and honesty. Sam doesn’t completelyknow, but he will.
