“You’re Chosen…” - Dean Winchester as Michael’s Vessel and the Thing about the Colt
“There was a gun that won the west. There was a man among the best.
The fastest gun or man alive.
A lightning bolt when he shot that Colt.”
- Lucifer in 12x12 “Stuck in the Middle (with You)
So after this episode I just felt the need to make a gifset on Dean’s ties to Michael as well as the Colt, because in this week’s episode both of these themes were directly brought together by the visual of Mary retrieving the Colt from a safe hidden behind the famous painting of Michael striking down Lucifer. And while I have little faith that the show will truly let Dean play an integral role as the one who is Michael’s vessel and should be perfectly able to wield the lance to get rid of Lucifer once and for all and rather think the possession allusions surrounding Mary may frame her possibly being the one heavily involved here , I keep holding on to a tiny bit of hope that probably is ridiculous to hold on to. But what can I say? Dean picking up the lance and taking it with him at least left room for possibility.
So, I was super-psyched that Sam got to kill Ramiel with Michael’s lance, and I was also pretty stoked that Sam was the one who exorcised Lucifer from President WhiteDude.
I just read though on the excellent @dustydreamsanddirtyscars‘ blog that Dean picked up the broken pieces of the lance (which I hadn’t noticed), and that she thinks that Rowena will mend it and then at the end of the season, they’ll probably kill Lucifer with it. Which now that I’ve seen it, I also am thinking is very likely.
So here’s the thing. I’d be pretty okay with Lucifer getting offed as the resolution of his arc. It’s not my preferred outcome, but it’s the best one I think I could reasonably expect SPN to give me. But I have a strong suspicion now that Dean is gonna be the one to do it, with Michael’s lance, and I’m having anticipatory anger.
Because- Michael designed that weapon to torture his brother to death with.
And Dean’s role, as a product of the angels’ centuries-long breeding plan, that caused immense suffering and death in the SPN universe, and over which Dean and Sam fought all of S4-5 to not do, was to have Michael use his body to cast that blow. And yeah, it’s better, because Sam (presumably) won’t be the body Lucifer is wearing if/when Dean kills him. But it still feels symbolically really icky to me.
Like, we the viewers are supposed to understand at the end of S5 that the angels and the demons are approximately equally bad; the Winchesters’ horrible family issues were caused by both sides. And that was before Dabb told us that Michael didn’t want to just kill his brother, he wanted to torture him first. It’s one thing to want to dispose of Lucifer because he’s dangerous, and, absent the family connection, I think it’s arguable that maybe an intentionally painful death could be reasonably framed as retributive justice. But they’re brothers. Within the context of family, torturing your brother is just more domestic violence, whether he “deserves” it or not.
I suppose maybe Sam will do it, which I’d still be uncomfortable with but less so (because then it’s framed not as retributive justice, but as revenge, which Sam certainly would be entitled to want, all things considered). In my cynical, bitter heart though, I am feeling like Sam got both the previous subsidiary “kills”, so they can give Dean the big one. Because some theory I can’t quite grasp about it would complete Dean’s arc as Michael’s vessel?
So hey, if any of y’all have something to add; whether it’s commiserating or offering alternative readings or whatever, I’d find that helpful.
Hey guys! You know the drill, I write everything in real time which means if I make a mistake in the beginning it may be fixed by the end. In this review there will be anti-Damon, anti-Delena, anti-Bamon, anti-Steroline sentiments, probable mentions of misogynoir, anti-blackness and racism, possible mentions of other TV shows, if you do not like it do not read. I did this on my phone so bear with me. OK ready? Let’s go!
1. Seriously, Cade seems like a really petty devil though. “Kill 100 people or your brother’s girl” like … why? Don’t you have some world domination plans going on or…? Like why the interest in Stefan and Damon, what about either of them are particularly special to the devil? It doesn’t make sense to me. At least with Supernatural, everything from season 1 was leading up to Dean and Sam being vessels for Michael and Lucifer, like every season, every plot point fed into that so it made sense, this is just fucking random.
2. I’m legit taking this opportunity to tell people to watch Goblin because it is so much more intriguing than whatever the hell TVD has become. You can watch it on: Drama Fever, Box Asian, Drama 4 U Viki, like so many sites, guys. I mean, I’m just saying, if you want a show that’ll make you cry and keep you in suspense and make you fall in love with characters then that’s it.
3. Yeah Bonnie’s scream of pain totally could’ve been better.
Why do I care about Matt again? His family made a bell that could kill sirens? Or witches? And that somehow makes him important?
4. Everyone is having like such lowkey reactions to things. Damon’s reaction to Bonnie telling him that Stefan is human is like “Oh. Damn. OK.” LIKE? Bonnie crying over Enzo is like … I mean I guess. I remember when she cried over Jeremy, that shit looked painful.
5. “Stefan, thank God” sound even less enthused, Caroline.
6. Seriously Candice has NO conviction in her voice.
7. Why are there never any cars on the roads they drive on?
8. Alaric and Matt, the two characters I care about the least in one room.
9. “I don’t think this is just colonial bling” did they seriously make Dorian say that? UGH. Also who says bling anymore? Are we in the early 00s?
10. Why are we acting like this history wouldn’t include the enslaved or First Nations populations?
11. Why is Damon acting like he didn’t kill Tyler? I find this actually unbelievably fascinating. He can stand there and lecture Caroline about how Bonnie wouldn’t answer her calls when he killed Tyler who was supposed to be Caroline’s first love and her childhood friend? LIKE THIS WRITING.
I don’t understand this, Stefan is human so he can’t be immortal anymore and therefore is out of the contract so Cade will kill him? Can’t he just make Stefan an immortal human? Like why does he have to be a vampire? He can kill people without biting them, there’s always good old fashioned weaponry. Like what powers does Cade actually have?
12. Cade, why can’t you just get the book yourself? You’re supposed to be the freaking devil.
13. So the cops knew all of these people Stefan killed over two months and we’re just now seeing their presence?
14. How did Abby get to where Bonnie is so quickly?
15. “But don’t worry, Damon’s on it” yeah that isn’t a sentence that inspires confidence, Caroline. Shit.
16. WHY DON’T YOU GUYS JUST PHOTOCOPY THE FUCKING BOOK?
17. Damon’s hair is stupid.
18. Seriously Damon, it was that easy for Alaric to kill you? Why are you terrible at everything?
19. I’m sorry this “funeral” for Enzo is kind of ridiculous.
20. Like there are no side effects to turning human? You’re just human and that’s it. You don’t feel slower, weaker, you can just operate normally?
21. Damon is ANNOYING. Like I’m sorry but his “zingy” one liners just make me want to punch him. SHUT UP.
22. I also don’t get a sense of urgency at all. Everything is moving so slowly.
23. These costumes are TERRIBLE. We’re flashing back to the Maxwell and Bennett ancestors, Zach is playing his ancestor and this black woman is playing the Bonnie’s ancestor and the acting is just done so poorly.
24. Sybil does look good in period clothing though. Even if the period clothing is awful.
25. Lol Caroline and Stefan are so bad at being together.
26. I can’t believe I’m only 20 minutes.
27. “You know him by another name, the devil.” Guys, if people knew him as “the” devil, then they would know him also as Satan and Lucifer or any other religious name for the devil, you can’t just pretend like religion isn’t a factor.
28. Why would Sybil tell Ethan what the bell would do?
29. So Bonnie opened the door to hell with her scream, yeah this is Supernatural.
30. Wait, why does the cure make a human reject vampire blood? How does that work?
31. “Sirened to ring the bell” it’s just compulsion.
32. These flashbacks are actually so fucking awful.
33. Matt just die of a heart attack.
34. How can vampire blood cure a heart attack but not cancer?
35. Caroline’s “you’re going to live” speech is SO WEAK.
36. All they had to do was photocopy the fucking book to know how to kill Cade.
37. Seriously Caroline and Stefan just feel like really close roommates.
38. OH SHUT UP ABOUT HOW BONNIE IS BEING SO STRONG, let her CRY, let her GRIEVE, let her just fucking FEEL.
39. Matt kissing Bonnie on the forehead looks really weird.
40. And seriously he’s not even going to STAY with her? The supposed love of her life died and no one is going to just BE with her?
Remember when I said she would grieve alone?
41. “Thank you for saving my life.” “Oh that, I do that because it’s Tuesday.” LMFAO OK, DAMON.
42. KAI KAI KAI KAI OMG IT’S KAI KAIAKAIAIoisno oaf oafn oang og osg ! And he shows up like a BOSS.
Yeah this episode wasn’t the worst episode of the season but it was still entirely boring. I wish we could’ve seen Stefan’s apology to Bonnie and also where are the twins, who would Alaric entrust to keep them safe when the last person he trusted was a siren who kidnapped them? Does Caroline know Alaric is back? Does she get regular updates on her kids? But whatever because KAI IS BACK AND I’M SUPER FUCKING EXCITED DESPITE MY BETTER JUDGEMENT.
Dean Winchester, the brave warrior. The older brother; the
one ready to be the protector.
Dean Winchester, Michael’s true vessel.
Sam Winchester, the noble knight. The brother ready to
sacrifice himself for anything, ready to sacrifice himself for anyone.
Sam Winchester, the true vessel of the fallen angel Lucifer.
Ranger Winchester. Me. Where does that leave me?
Here I sit, an empty bar, the angel in front of me holding
my fate, holding the answer to who I am, who I will be.
“What did you do with Sam and Dean?” I asked, my mind
automatically going to the safety of my brothers.
“Ha, don’t worry about them. They should be in Dr. Sexy
right about now. A version of me is down there with them.”
“So. So you’re not the Trickster.” I said. Gabriel and I sat
across each other in a booth in this bar. This bar.
“No, sugar, I’m not.”
“Where are we?” I asked. It kept feeling like I had been in
this place before.
“Place Dad made up. Perks of being an archangel, I get
access to most of his location creations.”
I nodded, trying to let all that’s happening sink in. I was
sitting in a bar that God created, with an archangel himself.
“Now to those questions I need to ask you.”
I nodded, again, beckoning him to continue.
“You could obviously hear me when we were in the warehouse…”
“How is that possible?” I asked. The only voice I’ve ever
been able to hear is Chuck’s. Chuck’s…and Castiel’s.
“Can you see demons? When a demon is in a vessel, can you
see their true form?”
I nodded slowly, remembering the moment when I could see
Meg’s true form under the vessel.
“You saw my wings. You could see my wings.” I nodded again.
“How are you feeling right now? Sitting in this bar, how
does it feel to be here?” asked the archangel. I had no idea what he was
getting at with these questions, but it seemed like there was a point.
“It feels, it feels like home. I feel like I’ve been here
before.” I said. It was weird. This bar felt more like home than being in the
A silence set between the two of us. Gabriel knew something
already. He knew something I didn’t.
“Do you have an imaginary friend?”
“You can hear a voice in your head. You’ve been able to talk
to a voice, haven’t you? Haven’t you?” I could feel my body going limp as I
“So the stories true. The stories freaking true.” said
“What story? What’s true?” I asked. “Gabriel do you know
what’s happening with me?”
“In the name of my dear father, I wish I could tell you.”
“You gotta give me more than that!”
“Sweetheart, the archangels were once told a story about
someone very important in the upstairs ranks. They would be able to hear a
voice, have visions, and see angels and demons true forms, etcetera etcetera.”
Gabriel snapped his fingers, two suckers appearing before him. He handed one to me.
“I can’t tell you much because part of the deal is that the
girl needs to figure it out on her own. But, know that now, as the first
archangel to meet you in this process, I’m free to answer any questions once
you do figure it out.” said Gabriel.
“But it had always been more of a legend to us archangels.
The legend of the imaginary friend is what we called it. You should see
Michael; he never believed it was true. I did though, and now you’re sitting in
front of me. But, sugar you gotta be careful now. Now that I’ve met you, any
other archangel is going to know who you are. That includes staying safe from
Lucifer, and I know Bevis and Butthead down there are doing their best to find
“So, to wrap it up here, I’m someone important to the man
upstairs? Why? Why me?”
“Oh sugar you have no idea. But why not you, that’s the
question. Think about it, both of your brothers are vessels for two of the
strongest archangels in all creation.” said Gabriel.
“Whelp, we gotta go. Can’t leave your brothers down there
for too long. Too much trouble.”
With a snap of his fingers, Gabriel and I were back in the
“Give me a minute, will ya?” asked Gabriel. With a nap of
his fingers, he was gone. A few minutes later, Sam, Dean, and Gabriel were back
in the ware house. Only this time, Gabriel was trapped in holy oil.
I guess Sam and Dean had figured it out too.
Gabriel started clapping.
“Well played, boys. Well played. Where’d you get the holy
“Well, you might say we pulled it out of Sam’s ass.” said
“Where were you this entire time? Are you alright?” asked
Sam, turning to me.
“Oh she’s fine, Ranger’s not worth the trouble of putting
her into TV hell. It’s you two that are fun to play with.” said Gabriel.
Sam and Dean turned to me for some kind of confirmation. I
shrugged, not really knowing what to say at this point.
“Where’d I screw up?”
“You didn’t. Nobody gets the jump on Cas like you did.” said
“Mostly it was the way you talked about Armageddon.” said
“Meaning?” asked Gabriel.
“Well, call it personal experience, but nobody gets that
angry unless they’re talking about their own family.”
“So which one are you? Grumpy, Sneezy, or Douchey?”
“Gabriel.” I said softly, looking down. Dean and Sam whipped
their heads to me in shock. They turned back to Gabriel, slowly.
“Gabriel, okay? They call me Gabriel.”
“Gabriel? The archangel?” asked Sam.
“Pretend to go along with them.” I looked up at Gabriel with
confusion. He just sent me a stern look, not wanting anymore of his cover to be
“Okay, Gabriel. How does an archangel become a trickster?” I
“My own private witness protection. I skipped out of heaven,
had a face transplant, carved out my own little corner of the world. Till you
three screwed it all up.”
“What did Daddy say when you ran off and joined the pagans?”
“Daddy doesn’t say anything about anything.” said the angel.
“Then what happened? Why’d you ditch?” asked Sam.
“Do you blame him? I mean, his brothers are heavyweight
“Shut your cakehole. You don’t know anything about my
family. I love my father, my brothers. Love them. But watching them turn on
each other? Tear at each other’s throats? I couldn’t bear it! Okay? So I left.
And now it’s happening all over again.”
“Then help us stop it.” I said.
“It can’t be stopped.” said Gabriel.
“You wanna see the end of the world?” asked Dean.
“I want it to be over! I have to sit back and watch my own
brothers kill each other thanks to you two! Heaven, hell, I don’t care who
wins, I just want it to be over.”
“It doesn’t have to be like that. There has to be some way
to, to pull the plug.” said Sam.
“You do not know my family. What you guys call the apocalypse,
I used to call Sunday dinner. That’s why there’s no stopping this, because this
isn’t about a war. It’s about two brothers that loved each other and betrayed
each other. You think you’d be able to relate.”
“What are you talking about?” I asked.
“You sorry sons of bitches. Why do you think you two are the
vessels? Think about it. Michael, the big brother, loyal to an absent father,
and Lucifer, the little brother, rebellious of Daddy’s plan. Don’t even get me
started on Ranger. You were born to this, guys! It’s your destiny! It was
always you! As it is in heaven, so it must be on earth. One brother has to kill
“What the hell are you saying?” asked Dean.
“Why do you think I’ve always taken such an interest in you?
Because from the moment Dad flipped on the lights around here, we knew it was
all gonna end with you. Always.
A silence set in between the four of us. No one really knew
what to say.
“No. That’s not gonna happen.” said Dean.
“I’m sorry. But it is.”
“Close your eyes and try a little. Prove me right. You can see it.” said
Gabriel all of a sudden.
I tilted my head in confusion, yet the angel kept giving me
the same look.
I closed my eyes, straining a little, trying to figure out what
Gabriel was meaning. After a second, I could see it.
Sam and Adam standing off in a graveyard, yet it wasn’t my
brothers. It was Lucifer and Michael.
Before I could do anything, Gabriel spoke up.
“Guys. I wish this were a TV show. Easy answers, endings
wrapped up in a bow… but this is real, and it’s gonna end bloody for all of us.
That’s just how it’s gonna be.”
After a minute of more silence, Gabriel spoke up again.
“So. Guys. Now what? We stare at each other for the rest of
“Well, first of all, you’re gonna bring Cas back from
wherever you stashed him.”
“Oh am I.”
“Yeah. Or we’re going to dunk you in some holy oil and
deep-fry ourselves an archangel.” said Dean.
I cut the angel off before he could say anything to make it
“C’mon Gabriel, just bring him back.”
Gabriel looked at me and sighed.
“You’re lucky I like you sweet cheeks.”
With a snap of his fingers, Castiel appeared next to me.
“Cas, you okay?” asked Dean.
“I’m fine. Hello, Gabriel.”
“Hey, bro. How’s the search for Daddy going? Let me guess.
Cas glared at Gabriel, a strange silence setting in the
room. Suddenly Cas turned to me, eyes wide. Seems like the two angels could
talk to each other secretly as well.
“Okay, we’re out of here. Come on, Sam, Ranger.”
“Uh. Okay. Guys?” asked Gabriel, confused as it seemed Dean
was just gonna leave him in the holy oil.
“You’re just gonna, you’re gonna leave me here forever?”
Dean stopped at the door, turning around.
“No. We’re not, cause we don’t screw with people the way you
do. And for the record? This isn’t about some prize fight between your brothers
or some destiny that can’t be stopped. This is about you being too afraid to
stand up to your family.”
I sighed at my brother, reaching up and pulling the fire
alarm before he could make it any worse.
“Don’t say I never did anything for you.” said Dean.
Gabriel glared. Dean, Sam, and Cas left the warehouse,
leaving me alone. I turned ready to leave.
I turned back.
“Anytime. You need me at any time and I’ll be there.”
I smiled, nodding, before turning and leaving the warehouse.
The door closed with a loud thud.
Something changed today. I was one step closer, one step
closer to the answer of my life story.
Summary: What happens when Gabriel is alive? It is said that, like Sam was meant to be Lucifer’s vessel and like Dean was meant to be Michael’s vessel so was Reader meant to be Gabriel’s soulmate. But they are only friends, right?
“Nothing here” you said with a sigh, throwing yet another book on the building pile next to you.
You and your brothers were constantly searching for a way to get rid of The Mark but had no luck yet. Maybe because you were not doing any actual job, anyway. But who could blame you? The thought of a certain archangel would not stop running through your mind. That certain archangel being Gabriel. You had met him a really long time ago, back when the Apocalypse was still going on, and you instantly had clicked. The pranks he would pull on your brothers had really helped in that. But despite that, when you got to know him better you could not deny you felt yourself growing really close to him. Falling in love with him was not hard, either, not when you got to know him better. Not when you got to know who he truly was and what his true thoughts and feelings, which hid behind the mask of the trickster and funny Gabriel, were.
You were not going to say anything, though. No you weren’t. He was a powerful archangel there was no chance he would be attracted to you. A weak human. Sure you were best friends but there was no way he would see you otherwise. Best friends. That was something he had said and you clearly remembered yourself finding it hard not to cringe. You still found it impossible, even after all this time. But you knew that that was the bitter truth, despite what you felt for him. What you felt for him. Something that both your brothers were very aware of.
When Gabriel ‘died’ it was impossible for you to hide how you felt about him. You had really thought you lost him, that he was dead, and not coming back so you really found no point in hiding how you felt about him. The situation you were in after his 'death’ really gave it away. It was as if you were about to give up on everything and everyone, life too. You just kept going for your brothers.
Luckily when you found out that he was alive none of them gave away on what you felt for him - you of course didn’t either. And they had kept quiet till now. Well mostly Sam had kept quiet. He was understanding and you could always talk to him about issues like this - although you could clearly see him sometimes struggling to keep his overprotective-brother mode off.
Dean didn’t of course.
There honestly were times when he would tease you about your crush (you were not going to tell them that you were actually in love with him) even in front of Gabriel and you really wondered how he hadn’t realized anything yet . But then there were times that he would go all older-brother mode and completely overprotective and would refuse to let you go with Gabriel on the trip he had suggested taking you to - something you did occasionally.
“Nothing here either” Dean let out a sigh throwing the book he was reading next to yours.
“You found anything?” Dean raised an eyebrow looking at Sam who seemed really engrossed in his book.
Sam did not respond which made you frown.
“Is something wrong?” you asked but Sam didn’t respond again.
“You found something about The Mark?” you asked again but got no response.
“I bet he’s reading porn” Dean said wiggling his eyebrows with a smile and you rolled your eyes.
“Sam did you find anything?” you asked him again but got no response.
“Oh don’t cut him off, (Y/n). I bet he’s just getting to the good part” Dean said again with a grin and you merely hit him with your foot under the table.
“Shut up Dean” Sam’s voice was now heard.
“Oh he speaks! He’s alive!” Dean said ever-so-dramatically.
“Dean” you glared at him and he just shrugged.
“Ok first of; people can get really focused and interested in a book without it having to be Fifty Shades of Grey, Dean.” Sam set his book down and glared at the older Winchester “And second of; well, I found something. It’s not about the Mark but- It’s equally interesting.” he said the last part and looked at you with what seemed like a smirk.
“Really? What is it about then?” Dean raised an eyebrow, taking the book to read out loud “And they were made from heaven to serve heaven. Fight the ultimate battle. Give the most powerful ones what had been said they shall. Serving heaven and hell for they were made for it. Three for three. Made for the good, evil and in between.” Dean read frowning.
“What the hell is this supposed to mean?” he asked looking at you and Sam.
“Well, it doesn’t really make much sense but if you got to read as much as I did from the book then you would get it.” Sam said with a smile, glancing at you “It actually says that… like I was made and meant for Lucifer to use me as a vessel and you were made for Michael to be used as a vessel, (Y/n)… (Y/n) was meant for Gabriel.” he said with a smile and your eyes widened at the mention of Gabriel’s name.
“W-what?” you managed to stutter out.
Sam smiled at you and explained “Well here it says that we were 'made for the most powerful ones’ and then 'three for three’. I was made to be Lucifer’s vessel, Dean Michael’s and you… you were made to be Gabriel’s soulmate. We were made 'for the good, evil and in between’. I was made for Lucifer - evil, Michael - good, and Gabriel - in between, which means love. They were the tree most powerful ones in heaven, the three most powerful angels - archangels, anyway.”
You took in deep breaths, trying to calm your rapidly-beating heart. That was something you surely did not expect to hear. No, not at all. You were meant to be with him? How could that ever be possible you found hard to believe.
Your palms were sweating and you could literally hear your heart drum in your ears. Thoughts of Gabriel running through your mind and what he would actually think of it. Would he want to be with you too? Did he know about it? Maybe he did but actually didn’t want to tell you because he… didn’t want to be with you? Even the thought of it made your stomach tighten and feel heavy like a rock.
You felt your breath catch on your throat, though, when you looked up from your hands you’d been staring at for a really long time. Your eyes all but widened but you couldn’t dare even open your mouth to speak.
Dean beat you at it, too.
“Well look at that!” he exclaimed “Seems like even the universe is telling you to make a move, huh (Y/n)?” Dean smirked at you and if your eyes were not wide before, your heart was not beating rapidly enough and your cheeks were not burning hot, they surely were now.
“Dean” you tried to say firmly.
“What? Don’t Dean me now! I mean, yeah, I literally want to stab that douche of an archangel on the face but still it would be hell of a fun to see you try a move on him! Besides, you’ve had a crush on him for what seemed like forever. Now you just have the motivation to finally get the balls and show him what Winchesters are capable of.” he said with a laugh, mostly because all he had said was to tease you about your 'schoolgirl crush’ on the angel, and by the look on your face he had succeeded.
“Dean” you said in a low voice.
“What? You’ve been in love with him for like forever, and as much as I hate to admit it, he makes you happy. It’s high time you told him!” he said teasingly.
“Dean!” you exclaimed, eyes wide and tears welling up in your eyes; fact that made Dean stop.
“What?” he asked, raising his eyebrows.
“You were not supposed to say that” you said, lip trembling; and they both looked at you with a sad look.
“Why?” he asked again.
“Because I was not supposed to hear that” a voice said behind Dean and Sam and they both turned to look at Gabriel eyes locked with yours.
You stared back at him for a while, more tears welling up in your eyes, your cheeks burning hot. You shook your head, the tears rolling by now - mostly from the embarrassment - and got abruptly up, running to your room.
“Shit” Dean muttered, running a hand down his face “Now I really screwed up” he added.
“Damn it Gabriel! You have to fucking stop appearing like that!” Dean said gritting his teeth.
“It’s not his fault Dean” Sam said “You should go apologize to her. You really shouldn’t have said anything, anyway”
“No, I am the one that should go talk to her” Gabriel spoke up and before he could react Dean had grabbed him by the hem of his jacket.
“Dean, no!” Sam started protesting immediately, holding onto his brother’s shoulder; trying to pull him away.
Dean shrugged him off and focused on Gabriel that was glaring at him “Listen, here. I may be teasing her about what she feels for you but that’s just it. Teasing. Now, though, I am serious. She’s my little sister so, if you ever so think of hurting her or making her do anything she doesn’t want to - and I think you know what I mean - mark my words Gabriel- I am going to hunt you down, find you wherever you may be and kill you, slowly and sure as hell painfully.” he said through gritted teeth.
“You know how I feel about her, of course I am not going to hurt her. Now, you mind letting me go so that I can go talk to her?” Gabriel said with a half-glare and as soon as Dean let go of him he disappeared from their eyes.
“You knew all along didn’t you?” Sam smirked at Dean who just shrugged.
“Maybe?” he smirked at him “Now come on, let’s go get a drink. I want to get the the thought of my little sister…” Dean trailed of and fake-shuddered.
“Yeah, agreed” Sam said.
You had your face buried in your pillow, the tears had stopped rolling, but the embarrassment was still there and the worst part was that there was no going back now. Gabriel knew what you felt about him and there was nothing you could say to cover it up. Things were not going to be like they used to and what made you feel all the more sad was the thought that you had lost your friend forever. Sure you would want him to come and tell you that he felt the same way but you highly doubted and-
A knock on the door broke your trail of thoughts.
“No” you said, face still buried in the pillow, voice loud enough so that Dean - who you thought had come to apologize - could hear.
You heard the door open and close, nonetheless, and you sighed into your pillow. You unburied your face but didn’t see who it was because your back was turned to the door.
“I told you no, Dean. I want to be alone, please. You did enough for today” you let out a sigh and closed your eyes.
“Yeah, I guess he did. And even though I didn’t think I would ever say it- I owe him” Gabriel’s voice made your eyes snap open.
You turned immediately and looked at him, eyes wide and redness returning to your cheeks “Gabriel” you breathed out.
“Yeah, that’s how they usually call me” he said with a light chuckle.
“Sorry” he soon added when he realized that you didn’t even so smile at his attempt for a joke.
“No I’m sorry” you muttered looking down at your hands “I ruined everything didn’t I?” you added and dared to look up at his eyes.
“What? No, (Y/n), no. Look cupcake, I know that you think that everything between us is going to change right now and honestly I reallywish that.” he said and you frowned slightly.
“I knew (Y/n). Of course I knew that you are my soulmate and even though this might sound creepy I- I’ve been watching you long before we met. I just- I know I messed up but I didn’t want to tell you that we were meant to be together because I was scared that you were not going to want me or maybe you would refuse to just because it 'had been said’. It’s in you Winchesters to defy the rules.” he said running a hand through his hair.
“Well I would certainly not want to defy that one” you said with a hesitant smile, having gained courage and hope in hearing him say that he felt the same way - although not clearly.
“You and me both” he said and you couldn’t help but smile widely.
“Oh really?” you raised a playful eyebrow “And you’re going to risk getting run over by the Impala, with my brothers in it?” you asked with a giggle.
“Uh well, I think it’s worth taking the risk. You’re worth taking every risk, after all” he smiled cheekily and you laughed more.
“If you give me the chance, of course?” he raised his eyebrows expecting to hear a positive answer.
You walked closer to him and cupped his face “I think it’s worth taking the risk” you said with a smile and leaned in to press your lips to his.
“So that’s you making a move, huh?” he asked with a smirk, when you pulled away.
“Oh you haven’t seen me make a move yet, angel.” you winked at him and he laughed wrapping his arms around you and attaching his lips to yours again.
Imagine being Sam and Dean’s sister, dating Lucifer (you being the only human he cares for), and since you’re related to the Winchester’s, Michael can (and does) use you as a vessel.

I can write another part if people want, or I can leave it as is? Let me know.
It wasn’t the easiest arrangement you had ever been part of. Your boyfriend, Lucifer, wanted to use your brother, Sam, as a vessel. Your other brother, Dean, was also a possible vessel for Michael, Lucifer’s brother. Which left you, stuck in the middle. Acting as an intermediate was a pretty shitty job, especially considering that it led to a lot of arguments. Like now.
So I was talking to my (non fan) fiancé about the latest episode and he said, “what if Mary becomes Lucifer’s vessel?” My first reaction was, “pfft, what, why.”
BUT. It kind of makes sense.
We’ve seen Lucifer take two long-term human vessels, Nick and Vince. They both have one thing common, that the show goes out of its way to make clear: they’ve both lost someone, and they’re both grieving.
Now, we have Mary, and the most salient aspect of her character is that she is grieving the loss of HER family.
(She also has something in common with Lucifer’s last vessel, which was also brought up in this episode. Like Cas, she doesn’t feel she belongs.)
Also. John was once Michael’s vessel, suggesting that he is the part of the bloodline that prepared Dean for that role. Which means Mary is the part of the bloodline that would be an acceptable vessel for Lucifer, i.e., a vessel that could withstand his power as his current vessels cannot.
Mary and Lucifer are two of the major players this season. It makes sense that they’d come together in some capacity.
Of course, it’s hard to imagine Mary (who I love love love and who clearly has a good head on her shoulders) saying yes to Lucifer without a very good reason. But is the show setting this up as a possibility? I really think so.
