Dean and Sami’s promo together on this upcoming Smackdown is so amusing, that I wanted to upload it here by itself. I love Sami being the prudish, nerdy, and somewhat serious guy to Dean’s loose cannon, dirty persona. They are total opposites trying to find common ground, and it’s really cute!!

A little something something in honour of Jared-in-tight-Tshirts day

“Jesus, Sammy,” says Dean, “did that shrink in the wash?” It wouldn’t be the first time. Laundromats are always a slightly unstable quantity. Dean’s lost all kinds of beloved clothing over the years. (The Stanford T-shirt Sam mailed him during his first semester at college. A vintage Iron Maiden tour T-shirt he’d picked up for cents at a Goodwill in Philly. Shreds of pink satin, six months after Rhonda Hurley, pulled and pocketed surreptitious from a malfunctioning machine outside Cleveland.) 

Sam looks down at his chest, at the logo straining tight across the taut-pulled fabric. “No-oo?” he says. Dean raises an eyebrow. 

Two patches of pink blossom rosy over Sam’s cheekbones. “I went shopping,” he says, “the other weekend. In Kansas City. When I went to see that film.” 

“Yeah,” says Dean, carefully neutral. 

“Well,” says Sam. “The sales assistant. Uh. I did think it was a little tight but.” He rubs a hand over the back of his neck. The movement tugs the T-shirt even tighter, emphasising the curved lines of Sam’s pecs, the rounded swell of his bicep. “Threw it in half-price,” he mumbles. “Said it would be a shame.” 

Dean’s amused, mostly. Sammy’s taste in clothes is… idiosyncratic. He can’t imagine his brother in the kind of boutique that might sell him something like this. He tries to picture her, the salesgirl, heart-eyed over this big scruffy scarecrow. She was probably tiny, tiny and glamorous and young. 

“Lady-killer,” he says. 

Sam turns pinker, looks up to meet Dean’s eye. Aw, Sammy, Dean wants to say. He doesn’t quite understand how Sam can still be so clueless around women, so surprised every time he gets hit on. And it doesn’t sound like this chick was trying too hard to be subtle. Half-price. 

Then, “Who says it was a lady?” Sam says, and Dean’s world tilts a little bit sideways. The tiny blonde saleswoman in his head dissolves, resolving into a hard-bodied, chisel-chinned dude, a guy looking Sam up and down as he twists in the mirror. This isn’t. Dean doesn’t.

He blinks at his brother, open-mouthed, but Sam’s already shrugging, looking away. “Yeah, I don’t know. You’re right, it’s… I’ll go take it off.”

“Hey, no,” Dean says without thinking, his own cheeks heated now, tingling-flush with an indefinable anxiety. “Leave it, Sam. It looks good.” 

Sam wrinkles his nose. 

“Really,” Dean says. His eyes skitter again over Sam’s chest, the breadth of his shoulders, the veins that twist down his arms. “You look good,” he says.

So best of luck, I’m a phone call away if you need me. I know all that, Pete, thanks. Stay out of trouble, keep expenses down, come back alive…
Ugly Duckling, 1x18

kajuned  asked:

8x08 makes me feel like Dabb has changed a lot. He goes from making Castiel a little out of place and dorky to working hard to give the angel a proper redemption arc. I guess this has a lot to do with how Castiel didn't really need a big redemption arc. until season 9 happened. I don't know, it's kind of weird, since Dabb's 8x08 introduced me to dorky!Castiel and now I am shown a much more mature and serious Castiel in Season 12. XD

Well… I don’t see Cas as “out of place and dorky” in 8.08. Well, maybe a little bit, but as Dean even said to him in that episode:

DEAN: How you feeling, Cas?
CASTIEL: I’m fine.
DEAN: Well, I just – I – I know that when… I got puked out of Purgatory, it took me a few weeks to… find my sea legs.
CASTIEL: I’m fine.
DEAN: Don’t get me wrong. I’m – I’m happy you’re back. I’m – I’m freaking thrilled. It’s just this whole mysterious-resurrection thing – it always has one mother of a downside.

And we also learn a lot more about that “mother of a downside” that Cas is also experiencing, IN ADDITION to the fact that he’s also being mentally manipulated by Naomi in such a way that he doesn’t even remember that it’s being done to him.

The Cas we see interacting with Dean and Sam is the “sock puppet,” so to speak. If Naomi had been allowing him full access to the knowledge and insight he demonstrates during the scenes in her office, he wouldn’t be coming across to Dean as hinky… which he and Sam really begin to agree on by the end of 8.10, taking steps to angel-proof their cabin because they’re so suspicious of Cas’s strange behavior.

So the fact that he was being written in a way that came across as purely dorky and naive was again a very deliberate choice that helped demonstrate just how much of “Cas” Naomi had effectively locked down with her torture (which we also get our first real look at in 8.10, both on Samandriel as well as Cas’s own flashbacks to it).

This is yet another example of things some people see as surface level OUT OF CHARACTER! when if you look a little closer and see WHY something looks different on the surface, you see the whole bubbling truth underneath.

Because I hardly think Cas’s painful talk with Dean in 8.08 was intended to feel “dorky,” but to show us the depths of his regrets, and the fact he felt he DESERVED to be punished for what he’d done. Hence why he’d stayed behind in Purgatory, and likely why it took so long to free himself of Naomi’s control. She’d offered him a chance to do penance by serving her in that way, and a part of him truly believed he deserved a hell of a lot worse.

Like the episode itself, it looks hilarious on the surface (cartoons! HAHA!) but the reality of the situation was incredibly grim. Heck, even Looney Tunes cartoons are like that. Sight gags and silly anthropomorphic animal characters, but the things those characters are put through by the writers… ridiculous deaths they always seem to recover from, the extreme horrors they suffer in the name of a few laughs…

I don’t think Dabb has fundamentally changed his characterization of Cas at all. This episode in particular just highlighted a few key aspects of it in different ways. Because yeah, Cas does have this cute lil dorky side to him. He has a freaking sense of humor, and that’s what it looks like. He’s also a BAMF warrior who will take no shit. Thank HECK he can be both, you know? He’d be a pretty boring character if he was only allowed to be one thing that can’t learn or grow or change.

Or even suffer depression, or learn that he’s loved just as much as he loves his family.

I mean, this is good characterization.

Wincest AU: To cope with Dean becoming a demon, Sam makes a deal of his own, protection for Dean if he agrees to become a demon too. When he finds out, Dean does the only thing he can think to do and sends them both back where they belong. Hell thrives under its new regime.

another seasonal comic commissioned by revengeoftheskelefrog! i had to do something surrounding dean singing that “let it go” song and while i only saw frozen once at 5am a couple months ago, i can admit the song was pretty catchy

so while jensen has a great singing voice, we know dean’s could use some minor…………..polishing………..

Because every Samifer fan wants Lucifer in the bunker. My general Samifer headcanons can be found here. These can be taken as normal archangel!Lucifer, or human!Lucifer if you wish :3

  • Lucifer sleeps in Sam’s room, obviously. Sam insists it’s both their room and lets Lucifer reorganise/redecorate as he wishes.
  • Lucifer insists on having at least three blankets on the bed because he likes how warm it is (imagine a Lucifer blanket burrito. Go on, just picture it.)
  • Dean was obviously not pleased at first and only allowed it because Sam threatened to leave with Lucifer otherwise. He is slowly getting used to the idea. Slowly.
  • Lucifer likes to sneak into Dean’s room and move everything exactly one inch to the left just to see if he notices.
  • After three days, Dean noticed and put a line of holy fire outside his door until Sam made him put it out before he burnt the place down.
  • Dean accidentally drugged Lucifer, who then thought Dean was Michael and forced kind-of bonding ensued. (yes I wrote a fic)
  • Upon hearing from Sam the full story of how Michael- with the same decision he had- chose to the option to kill Lucifer rather than try to save him, Dean feels Michael failed to look out for his little brother like he should. Dean hasn’t quite got round to saying this to Lucifer yet.
  • Lucifer spends a lot of time in the observatory. Sam recognises he wants to be left alone when he goes in there and respects that.
  • After… an incident, Sam and Lucifer have been confined to having sex in their own room. Only.
  • Lucifer has made several valiant attempt to coax Sam into breaking this rule.
  • Dean likes TV shows like rock music documentaries and stuff like ‘Top Gear’. Lucifer likes them too, but pretends to just be coincidentally in the same room and totally not watching.
  • Lucifer does sleep. Occasionally. He won’t talk to Sam about the nightmares, though he doesn’t argue when Sam snuggles up close to try and comfort him.
  • Being the ex-Angel of Music, Sam has noticed Lucifer relaxes more if he leaves the radio on softly in the background. Sam uses this tactically.
  • Sam likes playing chess with Lucifer. On the other hand, Lucifer’s favourite game is 'hide the Impala keys from Dean’.
  • Lucifer has declared Sam the world’s best wing groomer and takes advantage of this liberally.
  • Sam likes to sit with Lucifer close by while he does research. Often he rests his head on his shoulder, or holds his hand, or hooks his ankle over Lucifer’s under the table.
  • Sam enjoys choosing clothes for Lucifer far too much.
  • Everyone has unofficial seats at the table. Sam told Lucifer the seat next to him was his. Lucifer secretly loves having his own seat cause it’s the first time he’s been included as part of any kind of group since falling.
  • Lucifer makes attempts to talk to Castiel, who remains wary of him, knowing what he did to Heaven. Lucifer tries to act like he doesn’t care about this reaction, but Sam always makes sure to pay extra attention to him afterwards.
  • Lucifer sleeps on the left of the bed, Sam on the right.
  • Dean brought a games console and is currently mad that Lucifer somehow has the high score on it.
  • Sam found a load of “why do humans…” searches in his web history and read through them with a massive smile.
  • Lucifer used to sing to Sam in the cage and hasn’t since, though Sam has caught him humming along to the record player a few times.
  • Lucifer likes to insult the bunker and all its 'humanness’ whenever Dean is in earshot. But really, he rather loves it. Not that he’ll ever admit that.
