Heya. So I was wondering as a pro-John blog, do you accept that John was not a perfect father, made mistakes or could have done something different to raise his children? I have varied views. Looking at it logically it seems right that he did what he could, he tried to keep them safe, he loved them. To me, without Mary, John couldn’t raise his children the way he wanted to. obviously him abusing them is not canon. What negative character traits do you think John shows, as well as his positive?
I do realize that John was not perfect. I mean, no character is perfect. And I’d be dumb to say that John was completely perfect without flaws.
If you do look at it, John really did try his best. He just wanted Sam and Dean to stay safe, and to learn hoe to protect themselves and others.
He was a little too focused on hunting Azazel, and even John admitted that he was flawed and a bit too obsessed. He’s bullheaded and didn’t say stuff exactly like how he should have. He’s admitted to Sam that he was a little harder than he should have been, he’s admitted to Dean that he put too much on his shoulders as a kid.
If Mary had somehow survived the might of the fire, I feel like Sam and Dean’s lives would have gone differently with how Sam and Dean were raised in the hunter world. They would have gone waaaay different if Mary hadn’t even gone to check on Sam that night, cause nothing would have happened, Sam and Dean would have been raised normally; and most likely, Sam and Dean would have succumbed to Lucifer and Michael.
But it was so obvious that he cared about his kids. I mean, you can see him tearing up like every other scene with Sam or Dean. He literally gave his life to keep Dean alive. He loves his boys and he is proud of them. Sam and Dean are all he has and he literally protected them until the day he died.
after some searching, i found this post that i made a year and a half ago(ish) about reasons why i love John Winchester (which I think I made some good points tbh)
John Winchester is flawed and that’s what makes me find him interesting and why I love him.
