In your 8x16 Rewatch you pointed out that Dean’s room has the green sofa. Since then, have we seen whether or not it’s still there? And if it is, does it mean the bunker does indeed have a sofa?
1: I love you thank you and if you’re reading random eps like 8x16 you clearly care :P
We rarely see Dean’s room from this angle or in a way that includes the sofa, but I don’t belieeeve it’s ever left his room. Hm.
It’s in 10x03:
In 11x11 we get the mirror of the scene at the end of 8x16 but I just watched it and it’s too dark and the wrong angle to see the room… Many many scenes involve Dean using the kitchen when he’s emotional like in 12x02 I guess they already show Sam and Mary in rooms in the Bunker, so Dean just takes the kitchen… And many MotW where they start on the road.
Okay it’s there in 11x22:
I don’t think there’s any reason to assume he DOESN’T still have it even though we haven’t had many good scenes in his room since then, in season 12 or 13 as far as I can recall - the camera points mostly in the direction of his bed or desk, and the views which include the sofa usually have it as blurry empty space where it’s the least interesting thing in the room so we’re lucky to see it at all.
Like 10 whole minutes of 9x04 take place in Dean’s room and my only conclusion is that the camera people *sit* on the sofa usually (or, well, it’s the easiest thing to take out of the room to give them room to just stand around and film from that corner/avoiding looking at that corner).
Anyways. Yep it’s totally safe in fan fic to include Dean’s sofa, but bear in mind he usually keeps laundry, books or his porn on it when he is distracted and not keeping his room tidy, and also it looks like the most uncomfortable sofa ever. When I get all worked up about the Bunker getting a sofa I’m usually imagining something twice as thick, probably leather, and with a whole bunch of unnecessary throws and cushions that Dean secretly proudly fluffs when tidying.
If Dean was watching movies in his room with Cas you could imagine scenarios where he DID want to use the sofa, drag a chair or the small desk over to put his laptop on, and did that and it was awful because they had to sit so rigidly (i mean not that Cas cares), and/or he gives up halfway through that/just plain never uses the sofa because it sucks and he and Cas sit on the bed because it’s the natural soft memory foam sitting surface in the room. I think he thinks of the bench as more of like a flat storage surface in the room more than a seat >.>
… I feel duty bound to put this in my tables tag now because that entire thing started almost as a fan fic resource for how to write coda fic about the Last Supper and then in general how to include the weird ass kitchen table in your fic (It has attached rotating stools - never mention chairs or stools that they can pull out. They’re fixed to the table itself and have no legs :P)
