but what of it

Sometimes I think about that scene at the end of episode one, the one outside the police station, the one where Todd walks away and Dirk watches him go. And he doesn’t understand, because his future self told him this man was going to be his best friend, and yet Todd doesn’t even appear to like him, let alone seem interested in being friends.

So Dirk goes back to his new apartment, alone and lost because Todd was supposed to be his next step, his first step towards solving this case. And he thinks he’s probably missing something because this Todd maybe even hates him so obviously his future self was wrong. And really, he should have known, because people never seem to like him so why would Todd be the exception. The universe takes him where he needs to go, but he is always, always alone.

So he hates that he let himself hope things would be different this time, even if it was only for a minute.  And he resolves to put it from his mind, because there’s no use longing for something he’s never had. Still, it hurts, because he knew he was lonely, but he hadn’t fully registered just how bad it was, not until he ran into a future version of himself; not until he was introduced to the man who would become his best friend. And as much as he hates to admit it, that’s something he’s wanted his entire life. He’s just never really given himself permission to picture it until now. So that night, as he struggles to fall asleep, he’s consumed by emptiness, and for a few brief, panic stricken minutes, he almost feels like he’s back in CIA custody.

And then it’s morning, and his phone is ringing, and even though Dirk doesn’t recognize the number, there’s something about the sound of his ringing phone that slots everything into place.

I think then about the soft look of surprise that must have passed over his features. About the joy he must have experienced hearing Todd’s voice. About how his universe must have aligned; about how he must have felt knowing the future his future self had promised him was once again within his reach.

Mostly, though, I think about the moment he disconnected the call. About how he probably stared at the phone in his hand, torn between incredulity and disbelief. About the slow smile that must have spread across his face, and how quickly it transitioned into a giddy grin. I think about the silent yes he undoubtedly muttered up at the ceiling. About the pure adrenaline fuelled joy that carried him outside.

And then I think about the barely contained excitement he undoubtedly felt when he found Todd waiting for him on the curb.

I don't know if it'd help, but Cas's dying smile in 12x12 pretty much looks like Cas's pained smile when he was with Crowley and was asked by Dean if he was still working with crowley. Cas is so going to be so irked now that Crowley saved him :p

Working with Crowley: confirmed to be as terrible as a slow rotting death via poisoned spear.


And yes Cas’s “oh god Crowley just saved me AGAIN what the FUCK do I now OWE him oh god please say “never mention it again” oh god he’s GONE do I have to be NICE to him now what the FUCK just happened” face is one of his best so far on the entire show, while he’s lying there on that sofa just… ruing everything.
