I think either:
- Destiel is going to happen
- Dean will finish the series single
The thing is, a lifetime of hunting has made Dean insular and suspicious by nature, and that probably won’t change — at least not drastically — even if he manages to work through some of his other issues. He doesn’t trust easily. So: even if they introduced a new “love interest” character right after Dean is finished being a demon, and pushed the story line through this alleged S11, I doubt they’d have time to get him/her into a believable relationship with someone as instinctively secretive and defensive as Dean.
Also, I can’t imagine Dean trying to date a civilian ever again, so it would have to be another hunter. Or someone at least hunting-adjacent, in the way Jody and Bela are/were.
Basically the only person who fits that bill — has Dean’s trust, knows about the monsters — is Cas.
(Unless they brought Lisa back, which would be ludicrous to the point that I’d set the internet on fire. Dean having Lisa’s memories wiped is probably the skeeviest thing he’s ever done — including the Suzy clusterfuck — and him just waltzing back into her life after that would be super gross.)
OK but - imagine demon!dean TAUNTING CAS
Cas has a weapon aimed at Dean, expression dark and resolute.
Dean stares back at him, still. Maybe just the slightest hint or uncertainty crossing his face, but then it’s gone and his face is schooled into blank.
It’s the moment for Cas to strike the killing blow, to pull the trigger.
The moment stretches.
The moment passes.
"You can’t, can you? Not me," he mocks, moving slowly, slowly closer until the blade caresses his neck, the muzzle of the gun digs into his chest. "You could never kill me. Could you, Cas?"
Dean gently pushes the weapon away and Cas’ arm falls with it, a desperate sigh escaping his lips. He blinks, struggling to maintain his composure, as Dean crowds in on him, breath hot on Cas’ neck as he whispers in his ear.
"I know why, you know. You think I don’t see? The way you look at me…"
Warm, soft puffs of breath chase down Cas’ jaw as Dean’s mouth travels round, now inches from Cas’ own.
"KILL… no… that’s not what you wanna do to me, is it Cas?"
There’s nothing but a hair’s breath between them. Cas leans forward to close it.
And Dean pulls back, a hellish grin framing his face.
A snap of fingers and he’s gone.
"Never imagined angels’ faces looked like that under the skin."
"All angels so dim or is that just a thing of your half-grace?"
"Still, you’re beautiful, anyone ever tell you that?"
"But you’re fading away, arent you? How much you got left? Couple of weeks?"
"Have any nightmares about me at night, while you sleep?”
"Have you been eating properly? Gotta make sure that hot body of yours gets the nourishment it needs.”
*Starts making the motion to kiss him, changes trajectory, kisses his temple instead, laughs, touches his forehead with his own, nuzzles his nose, walks away*
So there’s that post about music in the marvel universe about captain America and how he’d have songs that romanticized and honored him,
but what about songs that’d mock him? Or use him to mock ‘uncritical’ patriotism?
Like people tell Steve that he isn’t missing out on Credence Clearwater Revival because so many of their Vietnam protest songs use the idea of Captain America. Or people make sure Steve only hears so much Bob Dylan.
But of course, Steve would find the songs anyway and on one hand he’s angry because that’s not how he feels and he isn’t some caricature but on the other hand yes he’s a soldier and he probably would have fought in Vietnam if he could have. But to protect people. (But he’s studied up on the history of the Vietnam War and he’s so conflicted about it and the role America had in it and he’s a little glad he missed it when he’s honest with himself)
And he just starts writing letters - very mild mannered, polite, very understanding of the artistic integrity of the songwriter- to the artists who are still alive who wrote these songs and suddenly public apologies come through the radio and TV and the paparazzi catch Steve having lunch with John Fogerty.
this show is incredible

"I’m gonna have to cancel lunch today, Dean," Anna said, still typing wildly at her computer. She stopped only momentarily to look up at him with an apologetic smile. "But my brother is coming in to drop something off for me." She looked away from her computer and picked up her cell phone to check a message from, surely, this mystery brother that Dean had only heard about and had yet to meet. "You could go out with him."
"He’s a complete stranger," Dean answered incredulously. He fixed his tie, pulling it tighter around his neck, anxiously.
Anna shrugged and put her phone back down on the table. “He’s an easy-going guy. Don’t worry about it. It might be good for you.”
"Good for me," Dean muttered. "You sound like my mother."
Anna shrugged. “I’m only saying.”
Melbourne protest for Gaza, July 19. 2014.
Guys, tumblr is so freaking distracting, you all are going to get me in serious trouble if I don’t log out for at least today, okay! I have to write, I can’t keep refreshing my dash to see new stuff from Vancon D:
So I’m uploading this now even though I was going to wait to upload the others when they are finished — this is part of three pinups for rainbells who requested genderswap spn for their contribution to the baby ackles fundraiser! After going through a bunch of ideas of what to draw, I finally settled on these because pinups are really silly and lots of fun to draw.
Please please please remember that this and the other pinups are re-imaginings of Gil Elvgren's work and that pinups are supposed to be a little silly and cheesecakey. Please don't take these too seriously, they're not necessarily supposed to make sense.

"She’s gonna be a lawyer," Deanna brags to Castiel at Cafecito the next evening. She’s always comfortable bragging about Samantha; it’s easy to be proud of her. "She already got into Stanford. Early decision."
"That’s very impressive," Castiel says, and she says it like she really is impressed. Deanna smiles.
"What do you do, Deanna?"
"A little of this, a little of that."
