Supernatural 12x10 // Lily Sunder Has Some Regrets
I originally made this with fake captions but I realized it’s funny enough on its own. I can’t tell which I like better: Cas’s fed-up eye-rolling, Dean’s smug satisfaction, or Sam’s earnest ‘I’m going to fucking fall off this booth seat!’ face.
for the anon who sent in this amazing prompt, thank you!
Today wasn’t Castiel’s favorite day. The past few days hadn’t been his favorite day. A lot of things were currently not okay and all he could do was fake a smile and get on with school, with life. It wasn’t that he was allowed to complain - in the end Dean had never been his in the first place. But seeing him kiss Lisa… it hurt. It hurt seeing them together, so close and happy.
Of course, Castiel didn’t have any feelings for Dean, he was just upset that he was losing his best friend. They had been close for a long time, stayed over at each other’s houses a lot, slept in the same bed, shared clothes and did everything together. They were inseparable, until Dean started dating Lisa.
For Castiel it had been out of nowhere when Dean had told him he and Lisa were a thing. At first, he’d just been slightly annoyed, but when days passed he began to realize how much it influenced him and his friendship with Dean. Way more than he wanted to admit.
He just wanted the old Dean back, spend time with him doing nothing- hang out on the roof and talk about school or Dean’s father being a dick and Gabriel who’d stolen from the candy shop. That was ages ago and Cas was probably never getting that back.
Dean never wanted to hang out and ‘do nothing’, had not once suggested to take a ride with the Impala and watch the sunset while sipping beer as they sat on the hood of the car. The only thing that was the same, were them staying over at each other’s houses, doing homework together and their movie night on Friday.
can we just take a moment to appreciate this character and relationship development like when cas was first introduced on the show dean would insult him and he’d just tilt his head with a look of confusion like “humans are so strange” and now he’s been married to dean for 8 years so when dean insults him it’s like “fuck u dean at least i don’t look like a lumberjack guess ur sleeping on the couch tonight" and that’s just so beautiful
