hi can u go into detail abt why u think jensen flirting w/ a fan is icky? like is it just the fact that hes married or is there more. obv i know actually making out with a fan or w/e would be taking advantage but i never saw anything wrong w/ flirting w/ an overage fan, esp since i once had an encounter w/ a member of the cast that a few bystanders told me seemed like flirting. idk just wanted opinions
on the one hand, if jensen ackles flirted with me i would absolutely brag about it for the rest of my life.
on the other hand, there’s a power dynamic to consider when you’re famous and you’re dealing with people who you have to assume are obsessed with you. flirting with someone who’s obsessed with you will probably make them hopeful that there’s something more to be gained, and you run the risk of having a fan stalk you bc they think you want to have sex with them. someone like jensen ackles knows he’s gorgeous and probably knows that a lot of fans would love to have sex with him. feeding that fire doesn’t really accomplish much good, in my opinion.
but, like, just to be clear again: i would absolutely 100 percent die if jensen ackles flirted with me. so i’m a huge hypocrite.
(oh and for people reading this ask with no context, this is about jensen flirting with a fan IN A FICTIONAL FANFIC THAT I AM WRITING. i’m not talking about jensen (or anyone in the cast) flirting with a fan for real.)
