do you ever get overwhelmed by how complex dean is. i love him.
ALL THE FREAKING TIME.
That’s why I have so many gifset series going on I can’t even keep up anymore. :P And honestly, it’s why I started my misconceptions series because Dean is so freaking complex that I think people misunderstand what they’re seeing or start getting confused by fanon Dean vs. canon Dean. He’s deep and layered and complex and it’s the reason I immediately fell in love with him. He comes off cocky and devil may care when we meet him in the pilot, but that’s destroyed five second later when he tells Sam he doesn’t want to look for John without him even though he can. We get this guy who seems like a huge flirt who could never keep a relationship and yet we are shown over and over again that he knows what it takes to make a good relationship work (tells sam right in the pilot in fact that dishonesty is a no go) and fact, Dean is a monogamist if I’ve ever seen one. Hell, we already see him having loved and lost a serious relationship by the 13th episode.
People see him as someone who hates to talk about his feelings, and yet we have him telling Sam he can’t trust people since Cas betrayed him, asking advice about his mom, telling his brother sublimation is his thing, admits his loneliness since Sam went off to college. And yet, he builds walls upon walls to protect himself and isn’t at all in denial about it. He loves hard and knows he’s fucked up in so many ways but he keeps loving just as hard even though he knows it has the potential to destroy him.
Dean is an enigma, wrapped up in walled-off riddles and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
