♡: who is the bigger romantic openly? secretly?
tough one. i would say that cas is the bigger romantic openly. he’ll say ridiculous and epically cheesy things - in front of PEOPLE - like ‘dean, your soul is the brightest and most important to me’ (he said that at dean’s famiy’s dinner table - the first time he was meeting them) or ‘every day i before i met you and i didn’t know you, i missed you’ (that was part of his vow at their wedding), things like that. and dean will always get really uncomfortable and of course secretly love it but puts on a show
but secretly? dean is the biggest sap. he wants to cuddle after sex - for hours, and cas will oblige even though he’s sweaty and just wants to get a glass of water. dean gives cas these romantic and thoughtful gifts - such as taking a dictionary and highlighting all the words that described cas to him (example words: ‘lovely’, ‘beloved’, ‘angel’). he’ll never demonstratively show his love for cas in front of people, not in a million years, but in secret cas gets all the affection in the world.
