It’s been twelve hours and I’m still not over the destiel of it all. Cas and Dean bickering and icing each other out because they care and worry so much about each. Cas sassing Dean so hard he almost had a wreck. Dean fucking sitting in Cas’s LAP. CAS IS FAMILY. And Jesus Christ An angel who fell in love with a human directly comparing his romantic love to Cas’s love for Dean. This might be the gayest episode since Goodbye, Stranger. DESTIEL EXISTS AND IT IS AMAZING.
PG-13 snippet so no smut warning needed, but I thought you all might like to see what I’m working on!
“Just, start slow.” Dean began, “Touch her waist, feel her skin, see how she reacts.”
“I do have some experience, Dean.” Cas said.
“Then let’s see it.” Dean responded. That’s when Castiel turned his attention back to you. He made eye contact with you as he laid over you, and one of his hands came down to touch your waist. His hand was warm, making it easy to melt into his touch. If it wasn’t for his striking eyes, you might’ve closed yours, but you wanted to see every move he made.
Jesus Christ in heaven. This entire episode was pure magic. Normally I write a post called ‘Destiel bits on episode xyz.’ This episode? No need because every single second was Destiel. So this post will be more of a recap and screaming about every scene.
And before we proceed, Steve Yockey… Marry me.
Warning for long post ahead with a metric ton of gifs. SPOILERS AHEAD.
Okay, I've been looking at Misha's pics today (because reasons), and it struck me again how they ugly him down for the show? Admittedly they do it to most characters except maybe Crowley, but Cas... Misha is a really gorgeous man, you can see on his Twitter and during cons, but when I watch season 12 I feel they make him look older and more tired than he really is. And don't get me started on the new coat! Any ideas why they do it? Is it the narrative or something else?
Hello, my lovely! How nice to hear from you! Oh, there are always reasons for Misha-picture looking. I know those reasons well. My, my, here’s one right here.
And yes, I am in total agreement with you - this gorgeous man is lumped into a weird-ass coat and an oversized tie that honestly make him look like… I think I read the term “potato” somewhere - could very well be a @tinkdw quote - and it is rather frustrating because HE IS NOT A POTATO. (I refer to the above smoulder of If I Asked You To You’d Get Naked Right Now I Know You Would) (yes) (yes I would)
So why make him look like a spud rather than a stud?
I have this friend who I discussed this with rather recently **Tink** and she said that it must be a conscious choice by wardrobe to make him look just a little out of place, a little uncomfortable, a little left off-centre. Because he does, doesn’t he? This whole season has dealt so much with “belonging”. For Mary, but especially for Cas, because where Mary found a place for her hunter-self with the BMoL, Cas has more or less just drifted. (until now, thank you Lucifer’s unborn son)
So yeah, I believe it is the narrative informing wardrobe. And the narrative this season especially has dictated that Cas is not content, is not certain of where he belongs or even where he wants to belong (he sort of knows where he wants to belong, but he’s not convinced he does belong there), and he has been depressed about this the whole season: hence the seeming tired, despondent, lost. He has been so, so lost. He’s shedding all of this baggage now, though.
(Sidebar: that dead body in the background, guys. *scrunchy face* Sorry to add to finale angst, but Luci is clearly on a killing spree. I’m a little excited to see him back and powerful again. But my money is on TFW. If the boys can manage to assemble, that is…)

The sun had just set and the tourist attraction had fallen quiet, before Cas and Dean had approached it. The creamy rocks had seemed as if they were almost shining in the moonlight, which hadn’t helped Cas’ guilty conscious of what they had done to the floor in the far back of the tomb, seconds before Dean had found himself in a dimly torch lit chamber, with vines coating the walls and the floor moving with bugs.
Dean was pretty damn sure this was a bad idea, but he had gotten many of those over the years. He had lived through all of those so he was pretty sure he was going to live through this one too. The keywords being pretty sure.
Dean took a deep breath as he stared at the around sixty glistening knives, being punched from and drawn back into the ceiling. The didn’t all lower at the same time and there was a rhythm to them. Dean only needed to figure out what it was exactly before he attempted to cross the floor.
“Tell me again why I am the pincushion, not you Cas?” Dean called over his shoulder, to his friend waiting above him by the hole the two of them with joint force had created in the floor of the Garden Tomb not ten minutes ago.
