And so I’ve started a whole new fic. Because I can. An AU in which people’s alignments are switched. The GB are members of the Black Org, and the BO members are police investigators. [ @bakathief look I wrote it.]
Summary: There are many words people would use to describe Kudo Shinichi and his associates. Crow, is not one of them. And yet he’s still a figurehead in a mass organisation, wearing the colour black. Dark ! AU
every action there is a reaction.
the case of Masuyama Kenzo, a police investigator who’s been
investigating an organisation swathed in black for the last ten
years, the action is research. And the reaction – well…
takes a deep breath – he’s too old to keep investigating like this, but well, it’s the job he’d been working on before retiring,
and retirement itself had been a good cover to try and learn more
information. At seventy-one, he feels almost like it’s too much to
keep actively searching for more clues.
You know where I called “bullshit” lately, in the context of Dean/Cas? When I was rewatching “The Rapture” a month or two ago - when we met Jimmy Novak.
Because Jimmy Novak is a character that HAS NO SEXUAL TENSION OR CHEMISTRY WITH DEAN WHATSOEVER. None. Nada. Their interactions are completely flat. If anything, he would punch him in the face and run away, but it’s not even personal, he would punch anybody. There is no spark between Misha and Jensen when they are Dean and Jimmy.
Which means that the romantic tension of Dean and Cas is of course helped by the natural chemistry the actors have, but it means that Misha IS ABSOLUTELY CAPABLE OF ACTING AGAINST JENSEN, AND NOT MAKE IT ABOUT UST.
Which means, this romantic/sexual tension is not Misha and Jensen, it is a part of Cas’ character and his relationship with Dean. It’s an acting CHOICE.
Dean has that with every version of Cas that is still Cas. BAMF!Cas. Human!Cas. Emmanuel!Cas. Crazy!Cas. Endverse!Cas. God!Cas.
He doesn’t have that with Lucifer!Cas or Leviatan!Cas, it is harder to see though, because these are predatory characters that are charismatic villains.
But Jimmy is the only character that really has NOTHING to do with Cas. He is a different person. And the chemistry is gone, like it was never there. But the moment Misha becomes Cas again (even brainwashed one) it’s back. Like magic.
Kudos to Misha for his acting, middle finger to everybody (actors, producers) who has been gaslighting us for the last nine seasons, telling us we’ve been seeing things.
