Lotus/Love’s Labours Lost

I’ve seen many excellent reviews about this episode already, so let’s jump right in, shall we? Dean is a mess, and Cas doesn’t understand what’s wrong.

When we first learned Mary was back, I had an absurd surge of optimism because, yeah, so I expected things would get even more complicated on the coming out front with one parent back in the game, but I had hoped Mary’s presence would unburden Dean, so to say, allowing him to finally be a brother to Sam, and not a parent. But, well: no such luck. Mary being unwilling or unable to ‘properly’ parent her adult children, Dean is even more of a mess; and, of course, he can’t take it out on Mary (because he knows what’s happening is not her fault) and he can’t take it out on Sam (he did in the past, and, Jesus, the guilt) and he can’t even take it out on himself (that’d be his first instinct, wouldn’t it - look at that flask Dean was carrying around in Celebrating the Life of Asa Fox), because now it’s not the time to lose control, not in front of his mother, not when Lucifer’s still out of the Cage and Sam needs him. And so, well, Dean takes it out on Cas. Cas who represents, more than anything ever could, the tragic irony that is Dean’s life - because Dean can never tell him that he loves him, can he, because Cas looks like a man, and Dean is not like that, and also because Cas wouldn’t understand (just look at him) and even if he did, what then? You think there’d be any kind of happy ending? 'What show have you been watching?’ Hunters are burned, and the sooner, the better. We know Dean never expected to get out, and he never expected to survive this long, and we know he’d convinced himself he didn’t mind - blast of glory, and all that bullshit. But now - now he’s got something he cares about. Not just his brother, who, Dean knows, and it both hurts and makes it better, would be perfectly fine without him, because Sam is a great kid and always was; and not even his mother, who doesn’t need him, anyway, and is going through the same stupid thing Dean is (she’s not suicidal, not exactly, but she knows she’s here on borrowed time, doesn’t she? and Sam doesn’t get it); no, the problem is Cas, and the problem has been Cas for some time. After all, that’s definitely who Dean was talking about two years ago, when he told some priest he wasn’t ready to die. And it was true, completely honest, what he’d said: Dean isn’t ready to die, and Cas is a very big part of the reason, and that’s why Dean resents him so much. And the more Cas proves he could, in fact, fit into Dean’s life - look at him with his stupid badge, getting in and out of morgues without raising suspicion - the more Dean resents him. And Cas, of course, doesn’t get it, which makes Dean resent him even more. Because Cas could read his thoughts, or his soul, or whatever the fuck, and this last episode reminded us of that; and, no doubt, Dean did wonder, many times, if that would be, in fact, easier: why should he agonize over the right words and the right moment, when Cas can simply - see those feelings inside him? But Cas is not like that, of course, and he wouldn’t look inside Dean without permission (or, even worse, Cas has looked inside him, deliberately or by accident, and he’s seen those things inside Dean, and - Jesus - either he didn’t understand what he was seeing, or he didn’t care at all). 

(Please excuse me while I breathe into a paper bag for a bit.)

So, yeah - all in all, I’m not surprised Dean’s being so distant. He tried opening up to Cas and Cas took a step back (fucking again). Dean told him he was afraid and insecure and had no clue what to say to his mother, and Cas almost hung the phone on him (“Don’t make things needlessly complicated, as you humans tend to do.” - emphasis mine). Because Cas is not human, and of course he doesn’t get it. And, even worse, Cas walked away. Dean told him outright he was part of their family - that he was a brother to them - and yet Cas got the hell out of Dodge the first fucking chance he got, precisely because he didn’t consider himself part of the family. And since then, Cas has been putting himself in mortal danger, over and over again, because he doesn’t get it, the stupid bastard, that his life matters - that Dean can’t -

(And it shouldn’t matter, all in all, that Cas is working with Crowley, and Dean’s surely ashamed of the stupid jealousy he’s feeling, especially because Crowley can see right through him, as fucking usual, but Dean can’t help it - look at the limey bastard, doing these things that Dean was supposed to do with Cas - working a case - interrogating suspects - and, no doubt, kicking back in some bar late in the evening, drinking and talking and laughing and what if - what if -

“Buddy boy, you’ve got what they call sex appeal.”

- because Crowley, yeah, the only reason he’s doing this is to annoy Dean - he can teleport and has no problem whatsoever torturing information out of anyone - he doesn’t care about those fake badges, and what they represent - a life where Dean can be someone real, can be respected and liked and trusted for who he is - no, all he cares about is himself. I mean, look at how protective Dean is towards those badges - “You should be proud of them,” he says, over and over, and Sam just rolls his eyes at him - and look at Crowley’s reaction when Dean takes one off him - “Armani!”.

And another thing: we know Crowley’s basically in love with Dean, and that they do share some kind of kinship, but when all’s said and done, Crowley is much more similar to Sam 'the end justifies the means’ Winchester, which is perhaps why they hate each other so much. And, well - if this show wasn’t so annoyingly hellbent into keeping the focus on Dean without actually telling us Dean’s story, this uneasy truce between Sam and Crowley would be the stuff of dreams. They are both such complex and interesting characters, and yet we still know so little about them.)

“Rachel and Dylan knew each other. They were in a play together that ran just weeks before the shooting. She was an actress, he was a light guy. I can only assume that Dylan knew as much about Rachel’s faith as I did, which was not much, if anything.” – Sarah Bay

About a month ago, an anon asked whether Dylan worked on Rachel’s play ‘The Smoke in the Room’ and my original response was no, and it is correct in the sense that Dylan was no longer working sound design for theater production during the last quarter of Senior year according to his class schedule, see post here.  However, this new development, according to Sarah, is that Dylan was the ‘light guy’ for ‘The Smoke in the Room’ which played on April 2 - 3, 1999 only.  Sarah is a Columbine survivor that has been posting on the Facebook boycott page against the airing of the ‘I’m not Ashamed’ movie production.  Sarah would definitely have a good idea if Dylan worked lights (instead of his usual position working sound) since she was both a part of theater and debate class.  She worked with Devon Adams who also stared in this production; she also knew Brooks Brown, and of course Rachel, having worked with both in theater as well as debate. What is interesting about this is that Dylan some how helped them out with the lighting. Zack Heckler was typically the light guy, though. I ponder if maybe Zack was unable to volunteer helping them with this production so Dylan was asked to help with the lighting as an extra curricular activity in part due to his past, extensive stage crew experience..  Surely, Zack trained Dylan to also work the lighting from time to time or as an extra pair of hands so Dylan knew both sound as a primary and lighting as a backup gig.  It’s kind of eerily ironic to look at the spotlight on the above photos of Rachel, following her every movement, knowing that Dylan Klebold was very likely the one holding the spotlight for her during this two day long play, a mere 16-17 days before the massacre.

As I mentioned above, Sarah, posted this information recently in favor of the boycott against the Scott family’s account of Rachel Scott’s life and death which is being portrayed intentionally inaccurate  with their hope of further pushing ‘faith’  in conjunction to Rachel’s death and the christian agenda.  Supporters of this boycott are Brooks’ dad, Randy Brown, Richard Castaldo and Devon Adams - among many other Columbine survivors.

Comment: This is a trade (kind of?) with lurvie, since she asked for a cute fanfic and motivated me with art. (I’m kind of easily motivated with art moreorless…) But yes. It’s kind of rushed at the end, but that’s because it’s late and I wanted her to at least read it before she went to bed.
