are you ever driving down a highway or stuck in traffic, and it just kinda floors you how many people there are around you, with individual thoughts and personalities and ambitions all surrounding you. all unique. you’ll probably never interact with or meet them again, but they’re there. affecting you some way or another.
Why don’t Sam and Dean call him? Why don’t they ask him how he’s doing? Why don’t they invite him over for movie night or poker night? Why don’t they let him live in the bunker? Why don’t they tell him thank you? Why does Cas have to be pushed aside in favor of the Winchesters all of the time? Why don’t Sam and Dean help him?
He’s done so much for them.
He’s died for them. He’s blown himself up for them. He’s give up everything for them. Everything. Everyfuckingthing.
But they won’t help him.
It took two seasons to finally get Castiel’s Grace back, but Sam and Dean never helped him. There was never real concern with Castiel’s dying vessel. It’s like that didn’t even matter and was simply an afterthought.
When Charlie smiled at Cas and Cas smiled back, it was just so heartbreaking. When does he ever get a smile from someone so happy to see him? When does he ever get a hug just because that person really wanted to give him one? The answer is never. Cas just… all he gets is pain and it isn’t fair.
For someone that is meant to be a part of the Winchester family, and supposed matter to them, and supposedly Dean needs him… he’s treated awfully like a stranger and I’m just so worried that he’s turned into a plot device and for someone who really loves Castiel, who looks up to him, and he’s their favorite character… it just really hurts to see him treated so badly. And to have your favorite character made into seemingly a fucking convenient plot device, after so much development in the past, it feels like crap. It feels like Castiel fans don’t matter to the writers or to the fandom at all. As if simply by loving Castiel we are inferior and that isn’t fair.
It’s not fair to us.
It’s not fair to Misha.
He puts so much work into Cas and to have him being more or less phased away is just the rotted cherry on top of a pile of shit.
Why can’t Castiel be treated with the respect and love he deserves?
Do you ever think about how Taylor is THE Taylor Swift. Like. Global superstar. Idol to millions. Flawless human being. And you feel closer to her than ever before? Man idk it’s just something really special.
