this sums up his entire existence

Do you have any Shisui headcanons?

(Happy!AU again bc I want to and you can’t stop me.)

- Voted Most Likely to Die Before Puberty 12 years running.

- Only Child™

-  Eternal Child™

- Also scary as fuck

- (It’s a delicate balance.)

- Found out that his grandfather shagged the Nidaime and didn’t know whether to be jealous or horrified.

- Decided it was something to aspire to instead. 

- Kushina was his jounin instructor. It was the best/worst decision Sarutobi ever made and he Regrets.

- Once planned out an elaborate mission in order to spy on the men’s baths, more for the challenge than anything, and entirely forgot that he could just walk in through the front door.

- Tried the same on the women’s baths only to be found by Kushina.

- Will never try that again. Ever.

- Makes a game out of terrifying as many enemies as he can before he kills them. Itachi loves him, but he is Suffering. 

- Had a brief period where he was crushing ridiculously hard on Orochimaru and spent a week in the depths of the library, finding the weirdest, most obscure jutsus just to impress him. 

- Does not talk about it. 

- On an entirely unrelated note, Sasuke has so much blackmail on him he could probably take over Fire Country. 

- The human incarnation of the Uchiha tendency to be Extra Stupid around pretty, powerful people. 

- Generally known as That One Uchiha in other villages. Everyone has a story about meeting him. Most involve bloodshed and terror. A few involve flailing but are generally laughed at. 

- Sets Itachi up on dates whenever the opportunity even vaguely presents itself.

- #1 reason Itachi does not want to leave the house. He used to be twitchy about enemies everywhere, now he’s paranoid that he’ll somehow end up on a blind date the minute he sets foot outside. 

- Has been in ANBU since he was 14 and will probably stay in it until he dies.

- (Largely because he read the burnout statistics and his entire existence can be summed up as “Shisui no.” “Shisui YES”)

- Hokage candidate.

- When the other villages find out there’s a mass wave of panic. 

- Sarutobi Laughs. Finally a chance to inflict Shisui on other people. 

- It works beautifully. 

- (Well. Not for the Hokage’s guards. But Tenzo has only tried to murder him twice this week, so that’s probably progress.)

A little bird (hey 🙆 anon!!) told me it’s @harryrainbows ‘s birthday !! 

Happy 20 Lucy !!

So this little bird also asked me if I could make a fic rec just for you, as a birthday gift, and i’m so on board with this :))

Here’s some happy/funny fics for you :* :* :* :* :*

- Tell Me What You Want: Harry is looking for a new roommate after Liam moves in with his girlfriend. After a few bad dates he’s done with men for the moment and wants to concentrate on school. That’s why he’s looking for a female or a straight male roomie. When Niall tells Louis about the free room he leaves that little detail out. Louis, desperately looking for a room, pretends to be straight, thinking it would be easy, until he discovers that Harry likes to be naked at home. His best female friend posing as his girlfriend doesn’t work very well either.“ (10k)

- True Love’s Gold : Gemma starts responding to every single one of Harry’s texts—regardless of subject—with i don’t care, talk to louis. Liam lets Harry complain to him for hours on Skype, pretending he’s not doing other things while Harry whines about his problems. Niall thinks the whole thing is hilarious, texting Harry links to articles titled So, you want your man to propose? and 15 ways to get him ready for the aisle! and follows each of these up with page upon page of laughing emojis. Harry tries everything, literally everything he can think of short of grabbing Louis by tattooed forearm and yelling, “PROPOSE TO ME BEFORE I COMBUST.” Or, it takes a village to arrange a proposal, but that doesn’t mean it’s going to go as planned. (27k)

- If You Asked Me If I Love Him (I’d Lie) : So Harry and Louis might have fucked up.The day of their wedding was the single most perfect moment of Louis’ life and every single day since where he’s been able to call Harry his husband has been nothing short of bliss. There’s just one teeny, tiny problem…Their families don’t know they’re married.*Or the one where Harry and Louis eloped but neglected to mention it to anyone. Meanwhile Lottie is getting married and the only way for them to not steal her thunder is by pretending they’re just friends for the weekend. Featuring Harry and Louis as terrible liars who don’t know the meaning of the word platonic and some Tomlinsons and Styles’s who definitely don’t believe them. (26k)

- Four Letters, Seven Points : Louis was pretty sure that a nerd who plays Scrabble as a hobby could only be boredom personified. Harry proved him utterly wrong. (20k)

- Dance Me (to the End of Love) : You would think that it’s a simple process - you meet, you fall in love, you get married. But when you add one lawyer and one overly-competitive high school teacher to that equation, it’s no longer a straight line from beginning to end. Or the story of how a simple proposal becomes a competition where no one loses in the end. (19k)

- Fake Tears and Garlic Bread :  “His date is a twat,” Harry announced, interrupting Niall and Nick, “if I had someone that pretty wanting to have dinner with me, I’d probably arrive an hour early and take him somewhere much nicer.”   “Aww Hazza, what a sappy romantic you are,” Nick cooed, “Maybe you should go and tell him that, might cheer him up.”   “You think?” Harry perked up, “Maybe I should offer to be his date instead?” Or, Louis is fed up of having to pay for his food and decides to pretend he has been stood up by his “date” in order to blag himself a free meal, Harry is the clueless romantic dragged into the equation, Zayn and Liam think Louis is an idiot, and Niall just really loves garlic bread.(7.5k)

- Just Tell Me the Song and I’ll Sing It Louis is an architecture student who can only think about the future. Harry is a baseball player who can only think about right now. Both are lonely for different reasons. Boybands bring them together.Or, this may just be a long love letter to Louis’ voice, I’m not sure.Based on the following prompt: Harry and Louis are university students who go to the same bar on the weekends. The bar has karaoke and Louis likes to sing Disney/Musical/Boyband songs sometimes. Harry thinks he’s cute so he starts singing Disney/Musical/Boyband songs and flirting with him while he’s on stage. (40k)

- Them Butterflies :To sum it all up - Louis is beautiful. Breathtakingly so. And Harry can’t find it in himself to even question the fact that he thinks so. Louis is mesmerising, nearly magnetic with all the energy bouncing off of him. Harry doesn’t know what to make of it, but he knows he doesn’t want this night to end.  This is the extraordinarily ordinary AU where Harry falls in love for the first time and Louis learns how to fall in love all over again. (68k)

- leave before the lights come on : Louis’ never had a one night stand in his entire twenty-one years of existence. Not once. That is…until now. And OF COURSE this is how it happened. (15k)

- Don’t Unplug Me Or Shut Me Down : Louis scowls. “He’s a photography student. He works with gorgeous models and probably breaks hearts with his smile. I’m a nerd. I earn my money fixing broken crap, and for some stupid reason, I like it. He wears short skirts, I wear t-shirts, he’s cheer captain and I’m on the bleachers, et cetera, et cetera.” Louis sighs. “I swear, the coolest thing I’ve ever done is wear contacts.”Basically, Louis is a self-proclaimed nerd who fixes things and Harry seems too perfect to keep breaking as many things as he does. (8k)

- Carried Away Like Butterflies  : It was probably a huge mistake for Louis to let his former One Night Stand move into his spare room, especially when said One Night Stand doesn’t seem to remember him. (17k)

Five Times

In my post about the show’s recent hammering home the Rule of Three, I mentioned that back in 12.08 it looked like Fives were going to be a thing:

It was suggested to me that Cas’s life has been in jeopardy twice already this season, and that he’s been saved each time. But I think this really IS our Law of Fives coming into play again.

The Law of Fives I’m referring to here is about discord, chaos, based on the parody religion created in the 60′s devoted to the worship of the goddess Eris as a “balance” to traditional religion based on order and outlined in the Principia Discordia. It’s a weird little book.

But there has been a progression of five for Cas (like all those fics based on the “five times” trope, where the sixth iteration of the thing brings it to fruition or subverts the trope). Each incident has escalated the harm/danger to Cas:

Incident 1: 12.01: The fight with Ms. Watt, where her advantage was the magical brass knuckles. She managed to disarm him and knock him on his ass. If Mary hadn’t intervened and killed her, who knows WHAT would’ve happened.

(also, with our new knowledge of “the Code” that killing a MoL earns you a death sentence, I wonder who the MoL feel is truly responsible for Ms. Watt’s death? Considering it was delivered with an angel blade, I am betting that they think CAS actually killed her and have no idea it was Mary.)

But Ms. Watt was busy making her Evol Villain Speech to Dean first. Dean was the momentary distraction that enabled Mary to sneak up behind her in the first place.

Incident 2: 12.07: Cas confronts Lucifer twice, once in the dressing room and once on stage. Lucifer easily tosses him aside both times; once in favor of beating Crowley with a guitar (we know his purpose for being there was to distract Lucifer and buy them time before he just killed Cas… they both went in there thinking it was a likely suicide mission), and once in favor of tossing Dean around a bit… Still, Cas walks away significantly worse for wear.

Once again, Dean was the distraction that kept Lucifer from snapping his fingers and booping Cas out of existence.

Incident 3: 12.10: Cas weakened himself healing Ishim, but then Ishim beats Castiel when he uncovers the truth about Lily, Akobel, and the little girl who was not a nephilim. Dean faces a choice as Ishim tells Cas that he’s going to “destroy his human weakness,” by killing Dean while he watches. Dean makes the choice not to banish Ishim because doing so might kill Cas in his weakened condition. In that state, if Sam and Lily hadn’t shown up when they did to create a distraction, Ishim likely would’ve killed Dean and then Cas.

Again, Dean was the object of Ishim’s torture of Cas. Because that was mental and emotional torture.

Incident 4: 12.12: In a brilliant 42 minute long metaphor for Castiel’s entire existence since the fateful day he pulled Dean out of Hell, perfectly summed up by this single statement:

Castiel: No, you listen to me. You – Look, thank you. Thank you. Knowing you, it… it’s been the best part of my life. And the things that… the things we’ve shared together, they have changed me. You’re my family. I love you. I love all of you.

Castiel has been impaled on the Lance of Michael by a yellow-eyed Demon. He’s rotting away and apparently nothing can save him from inevitable death. But Dean nudges events, yelling at Crowley and insisting there’s a way to save Cas. It leads to all of them confronting said yellow-eyed demon with Sam emerging victorious this time (unlike the last time he faced a YED). Crowley, of all people, breaks the lance, healing Cas, and telling Dean Winchester “You’re welcome.” Making ALL of Crowley’s actions there directly attributable to Dean’s influence.

(echoes of Cas telling Ishim  Well, my friendship with Sam and Dean has made me stronger.)

Incident 5: 12.15-???: Cas is approached by an agent of Heaven, and offered some sort of unofficial “deal” to help them find Dagon and Kelly (and specifically the nephilim), in exchange for consideration of forgiveness for his past “crimes” against Heaven. We have no idea what’s been happening to Cas while he’s been missing, but we feel Dean’s growing desperation to contact him. We are rightfully worry about his safety, knowing his history with Heaven and the fact that Dean’s Worry Levels are usually entirely justified about Cas’s absences…

which essentially gives us a FIVE EPISODE buildup of emotional tension leading directly up to–

The Future: 12.19: We have even less information to work with on what might happen in 12.19. What we do know is that Cas will finally come face to face with Dagon near the portal to Heaven (and from the bts clips it looks pretty damn grim for Cas… She has him by the neck and then rips her hand away as he falls to the ground…)

What we do know is that Cas is not gonna get ~perma-dead~ because duh. What we DON’T know is what mysterious force will intervene *coughdeancough* and what this final result will be.


I have no idea how to read this series of incidents without pinning at LEAST everything from incident #3 onward directly on the “cosmic consequences” that Billie warned us about. Because ever since 6.11 we know how those cosmic consequences work, like a chain reaction spiraling outward from the moment Dean refuses to reap that little girl. If he hadn’t gone back and “fixed” that first assault on the natural order, the consequences would’ve continued to ripple out in a larger and larger effect, spreading chaos in their wake.

And that’s what I’m seeing happen here.

**Note to folks who are scare this means BAD THINGS OH NO– the entire point of this entire escalating arc of chaos is that it demands a resolution. The resolution is not death here. At least, not for Cas. 

Spider-man #18: Few steps forward, one step back

Overall, decent issue.

The Positive

The focus on Rio Morales has been much appreciated and needed. 

For the longest, the narrative never explicitly told you what exactly Miles’ parents do. Of course, during the early stages of Miles Morales, it was not exactly necessary because Miles was the focus and that is how it works in a lot of teen fiction. However, in the case of Spider-man or more specifically, teen Spider-man, the family situation eventually becomes an issue. I looked up Rio’s occupation, and momma is making bank. She is supposedly making around 100k a year. This Spider-man is not going to have problems covering the family bill because momma smell like gas, water, electricity and mortgage.

Anyways, the relationship between Miles and Rio definitely needed refinement because we really did not know much about her other than that she is Miles’ mom, Jefferson’s wife, and that she was the sweetest and most endearing mother ever. And Bendis delivered on explaining what she is to both Miles Morales and Miles as Spider-man.

This is what Bendis is best known for. He is terrible at bombastic overly packed action packed scenarios(Civil War II, the X-Men). He can’t really drive team books because since he loves character building and takes a pain-stakingly long time doing so, you have scenarios of the Avengers not doing much but playing Poker.  Give Bendis heroes that have normal upbringings, aren’t too extraordinary like Jessica Jones, Matt Murdoch, Peter Parker, and Miles, and allow him to focus on them and we have a good series.

The What?

Not necessarily bad, but someone please explain this scene to me.

Is that like how his power works or something? He has to go full Hodor and scream Goldballs to get going. I don’t know what Goldballs does because as far as i know, he was an X-Men and I am one of the people of the mods that hate the X-Men. I do not know anything about his character prior to this comic and from what I’ve seen of him here, nothing makes me want to investigate or research him.

The Bad

Let’s start with the minor issue first. 

Black Cat’s role makes no sense.

Okay, I admit it. Like every Felicia Hardy fan worth their existence, I absolutely hate that Black Cat is being made a villain. It goes against her entire character and everything that she is to Spider-man. But that is not a Bendis problem, that is a Slott problem.

Her entire plan about Spider-man(Miles) makes no fucking sense. It could be summed up as put a bounty on super hero because he could fuck up my operation despite the fact that he does not know anything about you or your operation. All you are doing is making the superhero privy of your existence.It makes no fucking sense.

And yet, here she says after Miles busted up one of her operations, that him busting up her operation that he would have no idea  that it existed, and still does not know of, if you did not kidnap him and put a fucking bounty on him for no reason.

What frustrates me about this is that “Crime villains” like Kingpin or Tombstone or Mr. Negative are handled so much smarter than this. Even Bendis has done a Kingpin arc in both Ultimate Spider-man and Daredevil that were a fuck ton better and smarter than this.

I am not sure if there is this general creative idea among the Marvel writers to make Felicia look incompetent as a mob boss, but i everything she is in save for Silk, she looks incompetent.

Why is Felicia placing a bounty on Miles and not Peter Parker? It is not like he is hard to find because it is widely known that Peter is the Chief of Security for Parker Industries. If anyone is more of a threat to her, it is Peter Parker or even fucking Moon Knight. Spider-man is not an investigative meddling hero like Batman or Daredevil. He only reacts to crime when it is happening and just happens upon shit where he begins to intentionally meddle and investigate. Felicia knows this better than anybody. So I do not know why she is so bothered by Miles as if he will be different.

Why is Felicia so intent on messing with Spider-people on general? I do not get it. She was screwing with Cindy Moon in her series as well and now she is messing with Miles.

Next big problem…well.

I am lost because nothing in Lana’s relationship with Miles ever indicated that they were romantic or him going to avenge her crushing defeat would ever allow her to draw a conclusion that it was out of romance and not out of bounds of their general relationship.

It is not that I am adverse to a relationship between the two as it is so much better than Miles and Gwen Stacey. It just seems…rushed. That is something no one has ever said about a Brian Michael Bendis written piece of material.

I literally had to go back and look in any detail of romance or even interest in Miles from her. And I could not find any. Of course, Bendis has yet to explain exactly what her origin is in 616 and if it is any different from the Ultimate Universe.

But since her origin does not impede the bounds of 616 and actually makes sense, let’s assume that she is the same Lana Baumgartner. Part of Lana Baumgartner’s story is that she is a girl whose mother brought her into crime. She serves as a foil to Miles in that his father figure in Aaron Davis also was a criminal who tried to use Miles ability for crime as well. Lana is what could have happened if Miles broke bad. Also, like Miles, Lana is haunted by her criminal past or her parent’s criminal history. The difference between the two is that Miles has the legacy of Spider-man to uphold and Lana…doesn’t. She is only using her power for good to keep from doing bad.

This is why they bond.

As someone who followed Lana’s story as she constantly tried to redeem herself and use her powers for good, I am a little disappointed that she may be turning evil. But as I’ve said before, right now, Miles lacks Spider-man-esque villains and Lana fits the criteria of idea Spider-man villains.

The issue that I am having right now is how it looks to be happening. Instead of Lana being forced to turn because of her situation or anything relating to her situation, it hints at a woman scorned angle…just like Black Cat and Peter Parker. Holy shit. But Lana is so much better than that shitty parallel. She honestly deserves better than this if this is where Bendis is taking it.

Overall, it was a decent issue.

wait i'm so out of the loop why are anti's hating on daisy/rey?

💀


*sigh* basically Rian Johnson said some things in an interview in Empire and on Twitter about Kylo Ren and about Rey that can best be summed up as Reylos Were Right, and antis lost their shit. They are just now realizing that the story that they thought was gonna happen ain’t gonna happen, but even more profoundly the story they thought they had seen never existed in the first place. It was sort of the break of collective self-deception that has now spiraled into massive hate to the point where an acclaimed director is being accused by fandumb of not knowing what he’s doing because of his cis white maleness, the entirety of the TLJ promotional campaign is being recast as excluding Finn because racism, the entire sequel trilogy is being reimagined as some sort of narrative and Social Justice failure of which only Finn is the bright spot, and Rey is now just a basic white girl who represents White Feminism and is barely tangential to the plot.

That’s what happened. You can check #rian johnson #anti rey bs #anti kylo ren bs #fandumb for the posts chronicling this saga.

UPDATE!

( Shit keeps happening to Kendall; I am a cruel mun!

So, ya’ll maybe noticed shit hit the fan harshly.

To sum it up:

Ivo is gonna show up  once Kendall and Julian have their guards down, and he’s gonna straight up throw Kendall into a dimensional portal that SHOULD destroy Kendall’s existence entirely.

Key point on should, cause it doesn’t go as Ivo plans. See, Kendall’s pretty damn strong by this point ( thank god for Julian, honestly ), and so he actually survives the toss into the portal.

The bad news? Said portal throws him FAAAR across the multiverse, and so far as his friends are concerned, he’s straight up dead because they can’t sense him cause he’s so far away. 

SO, Kendall’s gotta travel the multiverse and try and find a way back home! Though, he’ll be fucking weak as hell at first; cause that portal did nearly succeed in killing him!

THREADS:

IVO FUCKS KENDALL’S SHIT RIGHT UP: [x]

KENDALL LANDS IN A MYSTERIOUS NEW WORLD!: [x]


Now, what does this mean in context to threads/rps and the blog in general?

Well, for starters: Kendall will not be able to interact with the following people:

–Julian Robotnik ( @thehouseofivo )

–Miles “Tails” Prower ( @prrrower )

–Amy Rose ( @hammeringhearts & @ameliore )

–Knuckles ( @masterprotector )

–Maria ( @clementic )

on account of them thinking he’s straight up dead and gone from their universe.

Any interaction with the above characters is considered BEFORE KENDALL WAS THROWN CROSS THE MULTIVERSE, BUT AFTER THE WAR THAT TOOK PLACE IN JULIAN’S WORLD. Unless specified otherwise.


What does it mean for everyone else?

Kendall will interact with your character, under the premise that he is universe hopping and ends up chaos controlling / teleporting to your character’s universe, in attempts to get home. He may stay for a few days / weeks / months, all depending on how he can manage to figure out where he is, if your character / character’s world needs help, or if he just likes the place.

Though, his primary goal will always be: to find a way back home.

note: we can still interact, even if Kendall’s left your universe! feel free to send in asks, and Kendall will act under the premise that he’s able to communicate with your character via some handy dandy system that Karasu’ll set up once he figures it out~.

Comment: Okay, this is the fic I was talking about last night that fucked me up.  I don’t know exactly what it was about this story, but it is so wonderfully fantastic I don’t think one specific thing can sum it all up.  To say what I can without spoiling anything important, ghosts are real and, in this story, they take the form of Jared, a ghost who has been waiting for his lover for 150 years.  And he knows Jensen is him.  But just as Jensen accepts that he, too, has somehow fallen for the ghost and the way the ghost loves him most ardently, Jared’s existence begins to fade in and out for reasons neither expected.

It’s so good and I was so sad for them both throughout the entire story; you’ll empathize with Jensen and have such sorrow for Jared.  You’ll also feel immense joy when they’re together and the love is so adamant and tangible between them.

Favorite Diggle scene?

Ever? Or in the premiere? I’m gonna go with the necklace scene. I love me some Diggle truth bombs and when he goes all Yoda. I especially love when he shuts down Oliver’s bullshit and he handled it masterfully in that scene.

Diggle basically Diggled the shit out of 3x01. There wasn’t a scene where he wasn’t absolute perfection. David Ramsey is a god among men.

Favorite Diggle scene ever? That’s easy…my blog is named after it.

“You can stare down death with something to live for or not. Something to live for…is better.”

BOOM. That’s the whole show folks. That’s what Oliver Queen has to learn. To become a hero, to stay the course, you have to have something outside of yourself to sustain you. A reason to live. LOVE. And Oliver’s reason…Oliver’s love…is Felicity Smoak.

That’s also why I named the blog after it. To me…that’s what life is. You find something to live for…something bigger than yourself. Whether that’s faith, or love or family or a career to devote your life to…whatever that is. We all need something to live for.

This quote also completely exemplifies my shippers heart. My big three couples: Bangel, Olicity and Stelena…they are all hero’s tales and every hero needs someone to live for…to help them become a hero. Living for someone and not yourself? That’s selfless love to me and that is what EPIC love is all about.

Other runners up:

I don’t think love is about changing or saving a person, I think it’s about finding someone who’s already the right fit.

Again, Diggle and the truth tea. Drink it up Ollie. This isn’t about finding a perfect match or a perfect love. It’s about finding the right love…that’s what makes it perfect. That scene was everything to do with endgame and Felicity is endgame. No one can see what Oliver Queen needs more than John Diggle.

Diggle: But with me, there’s be fewer casulaties including you.

Oliver: Diggle, I’m not looking for anybody to save me.

Diggle; Maybe not, but you need someone just the same. You are fighting a war Queen, except you have no idea what war does to you, how it scrapes off little pieces of your soul. You need someone to remind you of who you are, not this thing you are becoming.

Diggle just summed up the entire reason why Team Arrow must exist. Why Team Arrow will save Oliver Queen’s life and his soul in that one sentence.

Diggle is the shit.

So it’s Thursday and I am still reeling over the last episode. Pretty much every doubt that I ever had that Castiel is in love with Dean was erased. This angel, who has lived thousands and thousands of years, is laying down absolutely everything he has for this one man. He has died for this man numerous times. He has killed for this man more times than anyone can count. He has fallen for this man. He has done everything for this man.

Now, here’s a little something about Castiel. Before the Judeo-Christian Apocalypse (the big fight with Michael and Luci), Castiel’s job from day one of his existence was to save the righteous man. To protect the vessel at all costs. He was to tug him out of Hell, piece together every single little atom of his body and soul and breathe life into him once more. He was to create, from a demonic, twisted, husk of a man, a body pure enough for an archangel. I cannot imagine how hard that must have been. He’d been taught ever since creation that everything would end with the fight; with Sam and Dean Winchester.

But there was something in the righteous man’s eyes; or maybe his voice, that had Castiel wrapped around his finger. Castiel knew everything about him; his past, present and future…his thoughts, feelings and all the self-doubt, but he still considered him worthy enough to fall for. It’s no lie that falling is a huge fucking deal to angels, but Castiel did it over and over. Everything he ever did could be traced back to Dean Winchester. Castiel always tried his best to do what was right…to not disappoint his human. “I will find a way to redeem myself to you.” “I do everything that you ask. I always come when you call.” “I’m doing this for you, Dean. I’m doing this because of you.” “I’m hunted. I rebelled and I did it-all of it-for you." 

And as if it weren’t obvious, Dean was oblivious to all of it. Even after he was pulled out of Hell and watched his best friend fall and rebel for what Dean (and he) believed to be the right thing (things that went against EVERYTHINGCastiel had ever been taught were for the greater good), he still didn’t believe he was worthy enough for an angel’s love. "You don’t think you deserve to be saved…" He summed it up to Castiel having sense enough to choose what was right; not to how he was affecting the angel personally. 

I don’t think you can affect someone like that unless they are truly, unconditionally devoted to you. Especially a warrior of Heaven, a being 1,000x your size. 

All of Dean’s doubts were erased this time. Castiel stood amongst the beings he’d spent his entire existence with, with a clear shot at Metatron and a way to get his family back home, looking upon the man that was making all of the wrong choices, and HE. STILL. CHOSE. HIM.Castiel will always choose Dean. No matter what. Dean’s trust, Dean’s faith, and Dean’s life will always come first.Even if it is no longer his holy duty to protect the righteous man, he will always protect Dean. And I think Dean truly saw that. He saw an angel give up everything he’d worked for, not for humanity, but for one guy. Dean Winchester.

And if that isn’t true love, you can get up outta my face.
