The nephilim and Team Free Will: future and determinism
This is a post that started out as an analysis of the scenes where Kelly’s and Cas’ eyes glow golden with the power of the nephilim, and ended up a long longer than I planned. My argument is that the nephilim is the new agent of determinism in the show, and somehow I accidentally ended up drawing the conclusion of romantic Destiel. I never do it on purpose but it always happens. (It’s not a post about Destiel. It’s a post about free will and destiny. Go figure.)
Please read this, it took hours to write and I should be writing my thesis instead.
The starting point of my reflection is: is the nephilim exercising a form of mind control over Kelly and Cas? My answer is yes and no. I mean - in the substance, it’s something like that. But I think it comes from a different place than ‘mind control’, and has larger implications in the context of the show.
Summary: Endverse!Cas is missing Endverse!Dean, and goes to visit him in his cabin.

Warning: Smut, drug use, a little angst (because it’s Endverse and it’s all angsty)
A/N: I love Endverse. I hope you do, too.
Cas fucking hates the thigh holster Dean wears.
It’s sexy as all hell, of course, just like everything else about Dean. It clings to that thick muscle in just the right way to show off just how strong Dean’s legs are. It tells anyone around Dean just how prepared, steady, and dangerous he is. Most of the women sigh and bite their lips when he walks by, staring at the damn thing like it’s his cock.
