Supernatural: Season 11 Me and Sam, we have had our fair share of fights - more than our share but no matter how bad it got, we always made it right, because we’re family. I need him. He needs me. And when everything goes to crap, that’s all you’ve got, family.
“I meant it when I said I didn’t believe in love at first sight. It takes time to really, truly fall for someone. Yet I believe in a moment. A moment when you glimpse the truth within someone, and they glimpse the truth within you. In that moment, you don’t belong to yourself any longer, not completely. Part of you belongs to him; part of him belongs to you. After that, you can’t take it back, no matter how much you want to, no matter how hard you try.” ― Claudia Gray, A Thousand Pieces of You
She was 29 when she died. Twenty-nine. Dean is 10 years older than her at this point. Mary is still in her prime. She’s so much younger than the boys, shit.
We only have a few hints of what her life was like the 10 years post-demon deal, but I wonder if she found married life lacking. As much as she wanted it, I wonder if the urge to hunt still struck her every now and then. I wonder if she kept herself in shape for it too. Did she go for runs like Sam? I wanna see Mary and Sam’s morning runs, OK.
I mean, this is the woman who almost held her own against an angel. She’s super talented. I wonder what she’ll teach the boys.
and there’s this tidbit from the Supernatural Wikia: “…she bought an angel figurine to place in Dean’s nursery and told him ‘angels are watching over you’ every night when she put him to sleep — these were in fact her last words to Dean.” (Dean introducing Cas like, “this is my bff Cas. An angel. Who watches over me.”)
She came from one of the few hunter families that we’ve met. Which means she probably knows a ton more lore than any other hunter. Plus the Campbells had connections with the Men of Letters, so Samuel Campbell may had access to history and lore that no other hunter family had. He knew about the vampire cure, after all. What else was he hiding? What does Mary know?
If she knows a lot, can you imagine how she can even the fight with the British chapter of the MoL?
And shit, considering she didn’t like John until a cupid made them fall in love, now she can live her life without heavenly intervention. Also, the Mary Winchester we’ve met is Mary Winchester, post-manipulation by angels. Who is the real Mary Winchester? What if she never really wanted a normal life? What if she didn’t want that until a cupid dinged her with an arrow? Which leads me to the next point:
She came from a family that more-or-less lived a “normal” life aside from being hunters. Which is what our boys are trying to discover for themselves, and Mary may know how to balance that, since she’s lived it.
God, the guilt Mary is going to feel. Her demon deal is the catalyst to what led the boys into the hunting life. Just imagine how torn up she might be up about that… And then how proud she’ll be, seeing that they are more-or-less alright. (Though what they did to get there… Damn, that’ll be a long story.)
Also, imagine Mary Winchester getting used to modern tech. She’s going to be so overwhelmed, and it might be just too precious to watch. (Cas can teach her about texting and emojis!!!)
Also imagine Mary Winchester kicking ass, taking names, but also being amused by Dean’s neat-freak tendencies and Sam’s head always being buried in a book or Mary and Cas watching television. (GIVE ME THESE SCENES, DABB.)
