family don't end with blood

  • BOBBY: Family don't end with blood, boy. (3x16)
  • -
  • DEAN: You know what I think Mom would say? She'd say just 'cause you're blood doesn't make you family. You got to earn that. (6x16)
  • -
  • DEAN: A wise man once told me, "family don't end in blood," but it doesn't start there, either. Family cares about you, not what you can do for them. Family's there through the good, bad... all of it. They got your back... even when it hurts. That's family. (10x17)

  • CAS: Thank you. Thank you. Knowing you, it... it's been the best part of my life. And the things that... the things we’ve shared together, they have changed me. You’re my family. I love you. I love all of you. [...] You need to keep fighting.
  • SAM: We are fighting. We’re fighting for you, Cas.
  • DEAN: And like you said, you’re family. And we don’t leave family behind. (12x12)

Seeing some of the SPN Fandom do this so had to join in. To all the users out there getting targeted and harassed just remember that everything these cowards hiding behind “anonymous” are saying are just words. We do care, we are one family, and family don’t end with blood. The SPN cast is out there rooting for you to keep living and so are we. Whether you need to talk somebody or just get away from Tumblr a bit, just keep fighting. <3 Our inboxes are always open.

There are multiple posts out there with lists, lists that are way too long, for anyone who wants to join in)

Kinda wonder whether what Mary wants is hunting or family, because don’t get me wrong I’m all for both, both is good, and it can work for Sam and Dean and hopefully Cas but I don’t think it’s what Mary actually wants..
I mean, I’ve been buying the ‘kill all the monsters to give sons a normal life’ thing but now I think.. if she really wanted family, she wouldn’t have had the urge to hunt when Dean was a kid and all? Maybe she’s really kidding herself? Or is this also still the messed up cupid/resurrection thing affecting her?

I also wonder if John would’ve been able to/wanted to stop after Azazel’s death if he’d still been alive back then..

What I’d also like them do with this character story is the boys not ‘because mom’-ing everything about her, because that way they can never develop an honest relationship with her. I’d like them to temporarily(!) break with her so she can earn her place in the family by herself and not based on expectations.
