“What, are you gonna look up more anime, or are you strictly into Dick now?”
A lengthy exploration of Dean Winchester as a consistently queer character, thank to themes he embodies with his core characterisation of
occupying both sides of binary traits.
(aka the reason why I lazily shove random things into my “Dean vs cake” tag with no explanation, written out while on a 8hr train journey)
The writing of
Dean is of a character split between endless examples of duality, moments of characterisation which have stark opposites (either generally accepted or made up into a false dichotomy by the show) where he appears to
embody elements of both at all times. Generally, the less-expected or pleasant part is something he resists admitting liking or labelling himself as.
He may be described as a killer while
being shown to be the most compassionate character by his actions in the same episode; his
projection of himself as a dumb grunt has been so successful that we have to scrape up lists of dozens of examples to prove his intelligence in arguments, despite one of the most-used examples being in only the fourth episode but is cited all the time to prove he’s not the stupid brother in contrast to
Sam’s college-educated introduction leaving a lasting impression there; a
lesser example of Dean wobbling between sides of a duality includes his strict
favouritism of pie being shown in stark contrast to cake as if he must surely
hate it, having declared himself for pie; and of course his frequently shown
interest in women is contrasted with extremely consistent queer subtext
implying that Dean is attracted to men as well.
Rory: What did you/do you want to be when you grow up? Lorelai: What Fandom’s do you belong to? Emily: Do you have any siblings- do you get along? Richard: Tell me something good. Luke: Favorite Hobbies? Taylor: Leader or Follower? Kirk: Tell me your past 5 jobs Jess: Last book you read? April: Favorite Vacation? Logan: Best gift you ever received Mrs Patty: Single or taken? Dean: First Kiss Story Paris: Favorite subject in school? Babette: Tell me a bit of gossip. Sookie: Favorite Food/ Recipe Jackson: Morning person or Night Owl? Michel: Three things that annoy you.
Do you think Sam has a mental list of topics Dean finds boring for when he needs to throw Dean off the scent of what he’s really doing?
Like: I’m listening to an audiobook about the making of khaki pants. I found a talk radio station where they discuss nothing but rice cake recipes. I’m gonna go see a documentary about the creation of the Netscape browser.
