Honestly when I saw the picture of Dean looking up at Cas next episode, the first thing I thought about was Dean looking up and seeing Cas when he came to save him from hell. Maybe it was something with the lights or with Dean's expression, I don't know, but that's the first thing I thought about and I was reminded how incomprehensible Cas must have seemed to Dean at the time... It's such a romantic and heroic story
I know what you mean, but given that Dean doesn’t remember it, it’s hard for me to think of that part of their relationship as romantic… but yeah incomprehensible would definitely be it if he remembered!!
You know what IS romantic though and a standard trope in romances? (And I can’t help but think of all the times that balcony and those stairs are associated with Cas, even when the brothers come down the stairs talking about him…).
1. The Romeo and Juliet Balcony / Lovers trope.
Annnnnnd I’m gonna leave this one right here for fun too :)
2. The lovers gaze up trope in a range of other forums.
3. The lover’s gaze up in SPN, but let’s be fair you know, I’m sure they aren’t aware and this is a total accident.
