Do you think it's possible the writers will bring back cas in a female vessel right away and that's how we'll get deans proclamations of love and the kiss we've all been waiting for then? Or do you think we will get what we all hope for with "our cas" and dean.
Lol, no but seriously…. no.
Noone would stand for it.
That would piss off the antis cos they don’t like the character CAS as well as Misha so meh they’d still be pissed and it would ROYALLY piss off all the shippers and for the GA / the main audience and non - audience it make the CW seen as so homophobic it would be a PR DISASTER, can you IMAGINE?!!!
I mean, small, 1% chance they might make AU Cas female or something just to show the UST and make it blatant for the GA, but we will eventually get Misha Cas back and the UST / love will REMAIN and it will just be more obvious.
Look, I say Destiel is endgame, and I do utterly believe this. Do I think we will for sure get even a kiss let alone a roll in the hay? THAT I’m not sure of, it depends what the actors are comfortable with ON SCREEN cos don’t even get me started on Cockles, but also the network etc etc they may not want to show this on screen.
Lesbians is fine, its a fetish but guys kissing? Eww. Don’t even…. man I could write for hours on that but that is unfortunately the case for so many people, I literally just shouted about this to my family this weekend so I’m still sore about it, sorry.
So yeah, do I think we will know it is romantic by endgame? 99% sure. Do I think we will see them actually kiss? Only 80% sure. Do I think we will see a modest sex scene? Well I HOPE SO to freaking make the point that it can be beautiful and not fetishised or “gross”, but my hopes go down to like 20% tbh.
So… yeah. Sorry I’m usually pretty positive on my blog because I write about the narrative and how well it is written, but when it comes to the production side, I think there is only so far Dabb can go and man do we NEED it for not just representation but to make true on the story, but could you imagine…. I’ve talked to a few people recently about what a HUGE DEAL Destiel could be when it is made canon.
A SLOW BURN DECADE LONG LOVE STORY? BETWEEN TWO GUYS? ONE WHO IS SO CLOSETED HE IS IN NARNIA? WHO LEARNS TO LOVE HIMSELF? WHO OVERCOMES DEPRESSION, ALCOHOLISM, SELF LOATHING AND LITERALLY SAVES THE WORLD - AND GETS HIS REWARD AT THE END?
This could be life changing for so many people as well as taught in cinema / writing courses for decades to come as an example of the longest and best written love story ever told as well as a personal growth story, a story about faith and trust and love… it is AMAZING and if it DOESN’T happen it literally is so WASTED an opportunity I can’t even comprehend it.
The fact that it has been overlooked by so many precisely because it is M/M is also brilliant in how they can now turn this around, it’s literally a metaphor for real life queer couples who get mistaken for siblings or whatever all the time…
It’s such an opportunity to show that LOVE is LOVE and how well it fits with their individual personal growth stories, it doesn’t FIX their own stories but leads them to be the best them that they can be, this is the point of any romance… and for real life at the moment it is PERFECT, it is PERFECTLY timed where people need this kind of story, not even just the queer community but anyone who feels alone, rejected, to see how Family don’t end in Blood and LOVE IS LOVE.
I mean literally…. this is such an opportunity for the network, the writers, the actors, the showrunner, the producers to show how inclusive and progressive they are, to show the guys ridiculously good acting skills, that casual viewers on rewatching will pick up on all the UST from seasons 4-5 then the growth from UST to CARING to LOVE, to show the amazing writing skills at starting, continuing and tieing off this so subtle love story that so many didn’t see it until season 12/13 when it will be more obvious…
It could be a PR GOLD MINE for the CW and everyone involved… I so hope and I can't believe they would waste it after building it so much in s12…
