was normally the first one up every day, but today Dean and you were in the
kitchen at the table way before Sam. Dean was playing Words With Friends with
Mary while you were infatuated with sending snaps to Donna. “Dean!” You grabbed
Dean and pulled him over, holding your phone out to take a selfie. “Flower
crowns! Strike a pose!”
Dean groaned but posed with you anyway. He secretly loved it, not that he’d
ever admit it. “How did you even find out about Snapchat?”

I haven’t seen you checking yourself out in the filters on my phone. You make
an excellent duck face by the way.”
up.” Dean abruptly turned back to his game and laughed, sending a message to
Mary. You peered over his shoulder, seeing that he played the word twerking.
are you gonna play a word that didn’t even exist when she was alive? That’s
in the dictionary.” Dean shrugged. You scoffed and went back to playing with
Snapchat filters, moving on from the flower crown to the puppy face.
This is literally the weirdest picture of Queen (and maybe any band) I’ve ever seen.
We have, from left to right:
-John looking like an accountant dad in a family picture. -Freddie looking like he’s auditioning for Rebel Without A Cause. -Brian in…rainbow leopard print? -Roger with an ‘80s David Bowie haircut and Hugh Hefner’s wardrobe.
What have Sam and Dean noticed about Vince Vincente respectively?
It really seems like Sam has noticed his music.
Dean has noticed his butt, his crotch, his leopard prints and his rainbow wig.
Also - Sam, a fan of Vince Vincente’s, doesn’t remember a rainbow wig. Which is something that kinda catches people’s attention if someone wears it. So it’s possible that Dean’s mind has constructed that memory. You know, constructing memories of rainbow wigs on men wearing spiked codpieces, as a straight man’s mind does.
I want to add a little footnote. Dean has obviously strong feelings about Vince Vincente. He is not neutral about him. Earlier, in 12x04, when Sam is like “the rockstar?” Dean replies, “The douchebag!”. He is very vocal about his disdain for Vince’s on-stage persona.
a) Dean has a thing for hot rock stars. Especially if they have a very sexually-charged on-stage persona (spiked codpiece, leopard prints, not exactly demure clothing). His crush for Vince came in a very inappropriate time of his life. He needed to be John’s perfect son, damn that stupid guy with his stupid butt and his stupid sexy guitar, right? Ugh what a douchebag with his over-the-top outfits and all…
b) Dean felt betrayed by Vince. Now this is all speculation because we don’t know Vince’s sexuality; he might have been bisexual, but all we know is that he had a female partner and possibly several female lovers. It’s possible that either he was straight, or he wasn’t publicly known as queer anyway. Either way, young Dean sees this highly queer-coded guy, but the guy is straight (for real, or in Dean’s eyes).
“Don’t judge a book by his cover.” “Or a dude by his rainbow wig and leopard prints!”. Could this be interpreted, under the surface layer of “c’mon Dean he was over-the-top in his appearance but was an okay musician!” “No way”, as, “this douchebag used to dress and act like a queer person, but apparently you can’t judge a book by his cover - it was just a stage persona and the guy was just ‘queerbaiting’!”.
Let’s compare Vince Vincente with another character that has a very similar narrative to his - Gunner Lawless. Men past their prime, once famous and beloved artists in their fields, now aging and nearly forgotten, who make a deal with a demon and the devil respectively out of loneliness and desperation… Dean idolizes Gunner even after so many years; and what do we know about Gunner? That, when faced with a smitten male fan, he flirts back.
In an episode about rock stars, Dean doesn’t mention liking rock stars. He mentions liking gladiators, outlaws and pirates. *looks into the camera*
editor’s note: rainbow plus is a fucking mess. so many of their tops look like a fever dream. i actually hesitate to put all this stuff in one post, because i could queue it up and have content for a year. but like,
those are the first six kind of weird to very weird items i picked out on their site- at one point i had 27 tabs open of weird shit they sell ! like, i obviously know ‘dope’ has slang meaning but would anyone want to wear a shirt that kiiiinda looks like they’re proclaiming that they are a dope? are they going to release a line of dunce caps next? also every actor who tried out for the role of cher on the 'clueless’ tv series who lost out to rachel blanchard apparently got the consolation prize of being silkscreened onto a rainbow plus t-shirt.
