"Because after all this time, even supporters can’t understand or get it through their heads that with Dean, no matter how loud he is, he always betrays himself in the subtleties. It’s not in how he says to Castiel, “You were family once.” It’s in how he takes his coat and always keeps it with him. It’s not in how he says “Just kill him now!” It’s how he runs to Cas and quickly holds him up when Cas is ready to put the souls back in Purgatory. It’s not in how he calls Cas names, it’s how no matter what anyone says, he’s the first to jump to his defense. It’s not in how every time he dies, Dean says something like “Cas, you stupid bastard!” It’s in the fact that Dean is one pin drop away from bursting into tears in front of everyone every time."
Tektive on why Dean loves Castiel
(This is so beautiful and true)
#have you ever shipped something so hard and with such ferocity that it made you want to puke #because even in a state of perpetual illness you would ship them #until your sick and dying heart stopped beating #well
