How the hell do you accidentally write the greatest love story ever told? I mean seriously…
A man who was afraid to fly and an angel who was afraid to fall
An angel who teaches a faithless man to pray and a man who teaches an angel of the Lord to rebel
An angel who turned against family to help a man protect his
“I did it, all of it for you.” & “I’m not leaving here without you.”
“I need you.” & I’ll be with you after everyone else you love is gone
An angel who fell in every way possible and the man who would rather have him, cursed or not
The man who shared a profound bond with the angel who was lost the minute a hand was laid on the man in hell
An angel who willingly gave up an army and a chance to save heaven for one man
A man with an ancient evil curse trusts an angel with the one weapon that can hurt him
A man who broke through heaven’s mind control and an angel who broke through the curse of Cain
An angel willing to deal with a King of Hell to protect one man and the man who stopped himself from taking revenge for his brother to protect the angel
The man who doesn’t think he deserves to be saved and the angel who raises him from perdition
An angel that got too close to the human in their charge and the man who fought so hard to keep faith in the angel
I get that when Supernatural first introduced Castiel they had no intention of him even sticking around, much less becoming someone so important to Dean. But over the years they have done all the stuff I just listed and more and their story took on a life of it’s own. It seems to me that, even if Destiel wasn’t the original intent, it would be such a waste to not capitalize on the epic bond they have created between these two characters. I have used gender neutral pronouns for the angel in all of the above sentences and I think anyone reading this not knowing Supernatural would assume this was a female angel and a love story.
They couldn’t have written a better romance if they had tried (believe me - they have tried and they all sucked). This is why I ship Destiel and this is why I will continue to no matter what TPTB do with the characters. But boy, what a waste if the writers can’t see that they have written the greatest love story ever told simply because of the gender of the characters.
