otp: hello dean

I’m sure someone somewhere has talked about this before BUT

I absolutely adore the idea of Castiel healing Dean with kisses instead of his standard forehead boop. Like after a tough fight that has Dean all bruised and battered, Castiel just comes to him without a word and starts placing gentle kisses against a bruise on Dean’s cheek or a cut on his lip. And I like to think he can choose not to heal everything all at once, that maybe he takes his time to literally kiss Dean better one kiss at a time. And it’s not just about reaffirming that Dean is still alive and that they’re together; it’s also about comforting him and making sure he knows he’s loved.

Dean & Castiel - A Thousand Years

I got really into imagining Dean listening to White Horse on a bus and now everyone needs to be sad with me.

“Say you’re sorry, that face of an angel comes out just when you need it to.”

Dean looks up and does that utterly-still, listening-hard thing people do when they think a song might be about them. By the time T-Swift wends her way through, “Stupid girl, you should have known,” and, “This ain’t Hollywood, this is a small town, and I was a dreamer before you ever let me down,” Dean is grimly staring out the window.

Fists clenched, jaw set. Tay sings, “I didn’t know to be in love you had to fight to have the upper hand. I had so many dreams about you and me, happy endings, but now I know…” and Dean will not think about how that stupid angel bolts off every time they wrap up a case without so much as a “nice to see you again, bro.” Dean’s got years of stuff he always gets this close to airing out, only for Cas to pull his disappearing act the second Dean thinks he might stay.

He will not think about the room in the bunker he’s set up and closed up and aired out and closed up again, all without Cas ever setting one foot inside it or even knowing it exists.

Because he’s not a princess, and this ain’t a fairytale.

And he spends the next hour staring out the window, pointedly not thinking of anything except the mission at hand, when he hears that peppy voice come through the speakers again. And he thinks to himself, “Not again.”

But the opening lines are, “Nice to meet you, where you been? I can show you incredible things. Magic, madness, heaven, sin. I saw you there and I thought, oh my god, look at that face, you look like my next mistake…”

And Dean just grins because it’s totally true. Then he openly chuckles at, “New money, suit and tie, I can read you like a magazine.” And then suddenly he’s nodding his head to the beat because you know what?

Boys only want love if it’s torture.
