- Friend: Being in a fandom can't be that bad
- Me: I HAVE WATCHED FANDOMS FREEZE AND CREATIONS BURN
- Me: I HAVE SEEN THINGS YOU WOULDN'T BELIEVE
- Me: I HAVE LOST THINGS YOU WOULDN'T UNDERSTAND
- Me: I know things, secrets that must never be told.
- Me: Knowledge that must never be spoken, knowledge that will make ordinary people bleed!
- Friend: ...
And I won’t be far from where you are if ever you should call
You meant more to me than anyone I ever loved at all
But you taught me how to trust myself and so I say to you
This is what I have to do
And the Righteous Man spoke unto the Prophet Kevin “I present you with keys to our dwelling. Do not betray this trust with merriment and wine.”
And the Prophet replied “Fear not, for I have no one to make merry with” And the Righteous Man gazed sorrowfully at him and spake no more.
HOLD THE FUCK UP
IS JENSEN’S SLOWLY ROCKING HIS HIPS???
AM I THE ONLY ONE WHO SEES THAT OR
ALSO MISHA’S CASUAL ACCIDENTAL DRAG OF HIS HAND OVER JENSEN’S DICK
ALSO MISHA’S SUDDEN ADJUSTMENT SO HIS HIPS ARE MORE SQUARED UP WITH JENSEN’S AND THEN HE SORT OF PUSHES INTO HIM
IM SORRY BUT JENSENS EXPRESSION IS ACTUALLY THE MOST INCREDIBLE THING IVE EVER SEEN
This post is inspired by, though not a direct response to, some of the points raised in this meta by sarasarai. Hence the reason for a new post rather than a re-blog. (But it’s a cool meta, with some cool patterns identified and you should read it!)
So I was thinking some more about the argument in 8x22 Clip Show, and the emotional parallels with issues raised between Dean and Cas at the end of S6. For all that it seems that fandom wants Cas verbally to return Dean’s feelings (with either an explicit “I love you” or “I need you too”), Misha’s comments out of JIBCON makes me think that that’s not on the menu.
And bizarrely? I am okay with that. Because for me, that’s not, in fact, the issue between Dean and Cas that’s keeping me anxious over the finale, and the future of their relationship in general. The issue for me? Is that whole trust thing Dean brought up. That whole trust thing that Dean brought up (finally) very pointedly.
And I think, maybe, I can see where they’re going with this. Dean doesn’t seem to doubt (not really) whether or not Cas cares for him/loves him. And I don’t either. Dean doubts, and is hurt by, the fact that Cas doesn’t trust Dean—and how much Dean, in fact, can trust Cas. Trust is the keyword here, guys, not need and not love.
that is all goodbye
