Loved your review, also you’re the first person to point out the lack of flannel / lumberjack from my dash and I love you for it!
So I just checked, and… yeah.
The #1 clothing item associated with lumberjacks is the red checkered plaid.
Dean wasn’t even wearing plaid when Cas made the lumberjack comment, which makes that comment even more hilarious because that means Cas wasn’t making a comment about Dean’s current attire - he was commenting on Dean’s style in general.
And what has Dean worn since Cas called him a lumberjack? Let’s just go ahead and take a look at every outfit since then.
Oh, look! PLAID!
I mean, I know he didn’t have a choice on the prison suit, but it’s still not plaid.
So 8 out of 9 are not plaid.
To make this actually scientific, I guess I’d have to go back and look at the rest of his outfits to figure out what Dean’s usual plaid percentage is… but it definitely seems lower.
Castiel pulled up to the Winchester home and removed his helmet. He left it on the seat of his motorcycle as he strode up the front walkway, and then the porch.
Just as he raised a hand to knock on the door, it opened from the inside to reveal Dean’s mom, Mary.
“I thought I heard what sounded like a motorcycle out front.” She grinned and gazed past him. “Is she yours? She’s a beauty.”
Castiel smiled. Dean’s mom was the best. “Yeah. I got her last week and I’ve been trying to convince Dean to take a ride with me.”
Mary shook her head. “Oh, that boy.” She backed up and gestured for Castiel to come in. As he did so, Mary yelled for Dean right in Castiel’s ear, which made him wince.
Dean’s dad, John, was in the kitchen when Mary ushered him farther inside.
Castiel braced himself. John loved his family, and Castiel respected that. But he had an issue, not with Dean’s sexuality, but who he’d chosen as a boyfriend.
Who stood now in his usual punk attire, with spiked hair, piercings, tattoos, and a tongue ring, which he sucked on as nervous habit.
John took one look at him and sighed. “What’s going on now?”
“Cas is taking Dean on a ride on his new motorcycle,” Mary said.
“His motorcycle,” Mary repeated calmly. She threw Castiel a wink, but he really wished she hadn’t said anything.
“Do you know how dangerous those things are?” John asked, but it was a rhetorical question. “Do you even have your license? And you’re not wearing proper gear. Helmets! God, do you even have helmets? I will not have my son riding on the back of those death machines without a helmet!”
Castiel cleared his throat and shoved his hands into his pockets. He responded to the floor, “I’ve got my license and we’ll both be wearing helmets, sir.”
“Damn right you will be! Now let me see that license–”
“John, for crying out loud, let them live a little!” Mary said.
Footsteps pattered down the stairs and Dean swung into the kitchen. Castiel brightened at the sight of him. Dean wore jeans, a button-down shirt, and his thick, square glasses, which Castiel loved.
He smiled. His boyfriend was just so cute. Dean made everything better.
“Hey,” Dean said with a grin. He glanced between his parents. “What’s going on?”
“Nothing. You just go and enjoy yourselves, alright?” Mary said as she steered them out of the kitchen. In front of the door, she gave Dean a little pat. “Be safe, and have fun, okay?”
Dean frowned after her as she returned to her husband. He glanced back at Castiel. “So what’s the surprise?”
Castiel grabbed his arm and tugged. “It’s outside.”
They hurried out, and as the door closed behind them, Dean paused on the porch.
“Hold up. That’s not…yours is it?” His voice squeaked on the end, and Castiel leaned in to peck him on the lips.
That one time i:
•stared super intensely into Jensen Ackles eyes
•got majorly groped by Jensen with Jared joining in
•derped hard core (TWICE) with Jensen and misha
•got Jared to put his jacket on me… and then his scarf
•had Jared clinging onto me like a monkey while Jensen is about to punch misha
•Payed homage to Jensen’s spirt animal (whiskey)- and have jared and jensen both so into the photo and idea that Jared asked Chris if he could take a second one
•And then have Jensen look like a fabulous grandma and Misha as a sexy professor
That scene tonight where Dean was telling Chuck about how he’s let humanity down…it slayed me. I’ve been looking forward to this scene for weeks because Jensen’s teased that he took the less obvious route acting-wise with his delivery. I see what he meant - it would have been easy to look at those lines in the script and think “Yes, this is an angry scene for sure” but the fact that Jensen didn’t play it that way, the fact that Dean was less angry and more devastated, it fucking blew me away. I felt every one of Dean’s emotions in that scene - his disappointment, his confusion, his frustration, his anger, his pain. And I swear to Chuck, I cried when Dean cried.
Of course, everyone’s acting in this episode was on point as usual, but that one scene has to be one of my most favorite, most heart wrenching moments in Supernatural history.
He couldn’t help the grin on his face as he looked at the bright little screen, reading the message from you asking him exactly the question he had been thinking. Sam was looking at at a book he had dug out from the men of letters archive; something about half werewolves.
Without a second thought, he closed it with a thud and grabbed his jacket off of the back of the chair as he walked up the stairs and out of the bunker, shooting you a message as he walked.
