In the MBMBAM Seeso Q&A tonight, the brothers talked about how the structure of the show ended up being what it is partially because all the things that they “couldn’t do” because of social anxiety. Like, they couldn’t do man-on-the-street stuff, they couldn’t talk to a ton of strangers, they couldn’t play pranks on people, etc. And the structure of the show ends up feeling very genuine and fun because of those limits? They’re not forcing themselves to do (neurotypical) things they’re not as good at, and in the meantime, working around that stuff begets new ways of doing things. So, like, neurodiverse representation is obviously important because it’s important to be able to see that aspect of yourself in the media you love, but it’s also important because it gives us new structures and kinds of media, and that’s just so exciting to me
Cas shrunk back from walking into the library at the sound
voice – for very good reasons.
He heard the unconvinced noise Mary made as she shrugged before replying.
“It broke the spell and saved the town – it’s not hard to
believe they’d do it… For the greater good.”
Sam still sounded agitated although Cas agreed with Mary –
and he should know better than them about it. “No, Mom, we were all in the room.
All the ritual asked for was a kiss… I mean what if all we needed to do was
something like me giving you a peck on the cheek? It was a vaguely phrased
“I suppose so…”
Sam had gone into full ranting mode – “And – even if it had to be a kiss on the mouth – Cas could
have kissed any of us. There were options. He could have kissed you, or, well,
he was standing right next to me when Dean read the thing out, and a lot of
people were going to die really soon. I’d take one for the team.”
