Stiles taking Derek to a scary movie drive-in because he knows Derek is an old fashioned goober who secretly loves nothing more than getting to hold Stiles’ hand in the dark while Stiles (frustratingly) narrates the entire movie.
Going to a haunted house and it having absolutely no effect on them because they’ve lived through worse. So they end up making out in one of the rooms and they stay there for so long people think they’re part of the attraction. The staff become so confused because every other person comes out saying “the hot werewolf making out with red riding hood” was their favourite part.
Making caramel apples and Stiles getting sick because he decided he was going to eat them all instead of handing them out to trick or treaters. Derek spending the rest of the night rubbing Stiles’ back and trying to distract him by telling him halloween stories from his childhood in between calling him a dumbass every ten minutes.
Watching Hocus Pocus and arguing over who would be who out of the pack. Derek blushing and being all grumpy when Stiles calls him out for getting upset because Stiles won’t allow him to be the Allison to his Max.
Planning to get lost in a corn maze but they solve it really fast (because, duh) and end up playing a game of tag which only ends when Stiles finally manages to pin Derek successfully to the ground and kiss him stupid while people scream and laugh all around them.
Carving pumpkins together. Derek carving a mini Han Solo for Stiles and carving the words “I know” into it. Stiles carving a pumpkin Aladdin (because Derek is a major Disney nerd, MAJOR) and writing “when did you last let your heart decide?” in chocolate sauce (don’t judge him, he can’t carve for shit). And this is the first time they both know: this is it. This is their forever person.
Stiles not dressing up and when Derek asks him why, Stiles loves halloween, he answers, “I did dress up. As your future husband. If you’ll have me?” before nervously getting down on one knee and pulling out a ring. (Of course, Derek says yes. And, of course, Stiles tells everyone how that is the night he, Stiles Stilinski, got engaged to the sexiest zombie EVER.)

I’m crying with laughter, but I’ll just compose myself and share this with you.
I’m rewatching 12x23 (because @margarittet sucked me in with her wily ways) and dudes, within the span of a few minutes - and within the same sequence of scenes - Dean refers to two things that I feel are heavy with innuendo. And, possibly, hopefully, with foreshadowing for what to expect for Dean and Cas’ Love Story Arc in S13.
The first of these two references I’ve been aware of since the first time I watched the episode because it stands out like a sore thumb, but the second I only just discovered, and it’s what has me laughing with glee.
(I swear the writers must be taking the piss at this point)
The first association that springs to Dean’s mind when Cas tells the brothers they’re dealing with a tear in space and time, a doorway to another world, is to say “What, like Narnia?”
Now, Narnia is a fairy tale kingdom that does exist outside of our space and time, so it’s a shrug-let’s-move-on assumption that this could be an accurate parallel. Cas, of course, informs him that this isn’t what it is: it’s like our world, just different.
So, to clarify: Dean’s mind immediately parallels Cas’ description of “a doorway to another world” with crawling into a closet of fun and magic and adventure that’s filled with Biblical symbolism - such as Jesus in the form of a mighty Lion that sacrifices himself and then rises again in the light of dawn.
A closet, one should add (and put thick lines under for emphasis) out of which you return changed, bettered, but still the same.
Dean’s mind goes there.
While Cas immediately debunks this parallel and states that no, this world they’re about to enter is just like Earth, but different.
Do you see where I’m going with this, guys?
If not, let’s see what reference Dean makes once they’re through the door and looking at this Earth that is like our own - just different.
2. A Whole New World
Well. Disney, Disney, Disney. Stuffed full of the most romantically trope-y romantic arcs of all the romantic arcs that ever did arc. @tinkdw knows and has written extensively on the subject. @margarittet knows, too, we’ve been talking Dean’s Disney Library for a few days now.
And here we have yet another reference to a Disney movie. And not just a movie, but - true to style for our beloved Dean - a reference to an actual song. (I googled A Whole New World just to be absolutely sure this isn’t a reference to some obscure classic rock ballad or something) (it is not)
I will now attempt to write down these beautiful lyrics with a straight face:
I can show you the world/ Shining, shimmering splendid /Tell me, princess, now when did/ You last let your heart decide!
I can open your eyes/ Take you wonder by wonder/ Over sideways and under/ On a magic carpet ride
A whole new world/ A new fantastic point of view/ No one to tell us no/ Or where to go/ Or say we’re only dreaming — [Free Will rules]
A whole new world/ A dazzling place I never knew/ But when I’m way up here/ It’s crystal clear/ That now I’m in a whole new world with you
Unbelievable sights/ Indescribable feeling/ Soaring, tumbling, freewheeling/ Through an endless diamond sky
A whole new world/ (Don’t you dare close your eyes)/ A hundred thousand things to see/ (Hold your breath it gets better)
I’m like a shooting star/ I’ve come so far/ I can’t go back to where I used to be
A whole new world/ (Every turn a surprise)/ With new horizons to pursue/ (Every moment, red-letter)
I’ll chase them anywhere/ There’s time to spare/ Let me share this whole new world with you
A whole new world/ (A whole new world)/ That’s where we’ll be/ (That’s where we’ll be)/ A thrilling chase/ A wondrous place
For you and me
This is a beautiful, beautiful love song.
And it’s also rife with innuendo when it comes to a radical change in lifestyle. (yes I have a dirty mind) (I will not apologise) (ok maybe I will) (someday) (just quietly giggling) (never mind me)
And though Dean’s line of dialogue is “A whole new world, Sam”, he’s quoting Cas here, as Cas began this sequence of scenes by stating that the tear is a “doorway to another world”, which directly links Dean’s reference to Cas.
*slow motion eyebrow raise*
The core of any good Love Story is the Lovers facilitating a healthy internal growth for the other. By questioning each other and challenging each other and guiding each other. By highlightingwhat the other person needs to let go of in order to move on from old beliefs about themselves and the world at large and become a whole person. Once they’ve grown into a whole person, they get their reward: which is true love, shared with the person who facilitated their growth.
Usually the Lovers are therefore, by necessity, Opposites in many superficial things, while sharing core character traits that clarify why they’re perfect for one another. These shared traits are what make us root for them to get together. Clearly it’s meant to be, if they could only let go of all that baggage already!
We are watching the love story between a man afraid of flying falling in love with a man who has wings on his back. Wings. On his back.
I sincerely cannot think of a more poignant or visually compelling use of the Opposites trope.
My point is this:
In Dean’s Narnia reference there’s an acknowledgment of there being a closet, and the closet is a safe space, filled with the promise of adventure and growth, but just because one was to indulge doesn’t have to mean one has to change, right? Time stands still in the closet, you come out with more experience, but still the same. Right?
Wrong as fuck, so says Cas.
And why is it Cas who says this?
Because Cas started Dean’s character growth towards self-acceptance and true self-worth, which will result in endgame and a long and happy life for Dean. (no going out in a blaze of glory Dean) (let that go now)
Cas is the reason Dean wants to go through the growth, because Dean is so in love with Cas that he can’t imagine life without him, and he wants a shared life with him. Dean is now so deep into his internal growth that what he truly wants is to reach the endgame of his shared love story arc with Cas. The obstacle in the way of this, at the moment of this Narnia/Aladdin exchange, before Cas’ angel death, is Dean’s fear of rejection. He is scared of getting hurt, of Cas getting hurt, of getting Cas hurt, of all the things that actually take place throughout 12x23.
And so Cas is there, yet again, to call him out on his bullcrap.
Because, no, Dean, this whole new world you’re about to enter in S13 is nothing like the closet in Narnia. You won’t crawl into it and have your fun and crawl back out again, still the same as when you went in. (pfffffff)
The whole new world you’re about to enter in S13 is like the Earth you’ve always known, but different.
And, my darling Dean, that’s ok. Because Cas will be right there with you. Every step of the way.
(yes this will most likely be a bit of a bizarro world to Sam) (though I’m sure he will not be the least bit surprised)
