Hm, rather than ask Dean for help in S6, Cas:
Pulled Sam out of the cage soulless and ignored his prayers
Conspired with the King of Hell
Betrayed Sam and Dean
Broke the wall in Sam’s head
Became Godstiel and killed scores of angels and humans
Released the leviathan
Conspired with Metatron and got the angels kicked out of heaven
He has intentionally or unintentionally caused a lot of havoc. I’m not saying that it’s all Cas’s fault, but a shit storm does seem to follow him wherever he goes.

I’ve been calling Cas the dumbest angel in the garrison for 3 years now.  Depower all these winged dumbasses right now.

Oh my goodness I thought I was the only ken who thought he was the dumbest angel in the garrison! This is so validating to see I’m not alone.
But yea for being a heavenly being that has eons of experience Cas makes the same mistake over and over and over and over again…
How is it that nearly ever other angel has shown up on Earth and been more capable than Cas has been in his 5 years?
I mean I have a theory that he’s an AU!Angel (and I don’t mean AU as in alternate universe…) but that’s a headcanon for another day

You’re right that every single other angel are cultural aware and can integrate into human society with relative ease while Cas loses fights with a slushy machine.  Fans have questioned Misha on why Cas is so unassimilated compared to other angels and he basically implied that Cas is a dumbass.

There you go. Straight from the horses mouth.

This is not a bomb we're talking about. This is my brother.

It is 2014 why do people still ship Wincest

sparestrange:

People ship Wincest because they want to and they can. Also it’s fucking AWESOME!  And why the hell would your dumbass opinion have anything to do with my ship? 

Oh yeah! It doesn’t. 

So that begs the question why is your dumbass opinion in the wincest tag?

Why don’t you go find a puppy to kick or something else that might make you happy?

Here, let’s at least make this relevant to your poor choice in tags…

Sometimes I think about Sam reading John’s Journal.
When he’s doing research, or just reading it.
When he read about Dean taking care of him.
How a lot of things have changed through the years,
and others, will never change.

Anonymous said: Hello Lia i followed you because well i dont even know why you ran a pretty good blog but unfortunately im a destiel. Shipper not a wincest shiper im sure i would ship winces if i didnt have two siblings. Its just too weird for me trust me when i say i do not want to smell those flowers in ya attic. I respect all wincest shippers though i have this theory that yall are only child because thats the only way i can rap up my head around it. But you know its your life and i cant deny they have an

amaizing bond and i love them but i am wondering a couple of things do you not like destiel i noticed you rebloged a pic of him being the cause of many supernaturals problems im not being an uptight fangirl here, im just genuenly curious

I am not an only child. In fact I have an older brother, but safe to say, my brother and I didn’t not grow up the way Sam and Dean did. We have spouses and other friends. We do not have the single minded-devotion to one another that Sam and Dean do. So, there’s that.

As I said in another post, I liked Cas a lot in seasons four and five when he was a warrior angel. I found his story interesting in season six, but since then he seems to have been used more as comic relief, which I find insulting to the character, or as a plot device to keep the angel war moving along. I realize that those who are deeply invested in the character don’t feel that way. I’m invested in Sam and Dean, and they just seem to be dragged along with it.

I think Destiel is a fine ship. I have some good friends who ship it, but neither I nor they see it as canon. It’s fanon, just as Wincest is.

I don’t hate Castiel, but for me, the worst thing he did was lie, repeatedly, about rescuing Sam from the Cage. He didn’t become Godstiel on purpose (it was a delusion 2ndary to the souls, and that he IS responsible for), he didn’t release the Leviathan on purpose (they sort of busted out of his vessel), and his conspiracy with Metatron was shaded by his mind-control by Naomi. Agree that a shitstorm follows him around, no matter what, and it’s still following him around.I’m glad, though, that he left Dean alone in S6 so he had that year of peace with Lisa and Ben. Just my $.02.

I don’t hate Cas either, and as I said “intentionally or unintentionally.” My biggest beef with Cas is breaking Sam’s wall after arguing with Dean to not even put Sam’s soul back because of how it could destroy him. He knew the kind of hell he was subjecting Sam to, and he did that anyway to a person he’d called “friend.” He treated Sam like nothing more than a pawn and subjected him to months of living hell. He very nearly killed him. Okay, so I still have some anger over that act. When fans try to say that Sam and Dean have done bad things too. Yeah, nothing like that. Neither have willfully set out to cause a friend/brother that much living hell for strategic purposes. It was intentional and it was cruel even if the cruelty wasn’t the reason for doing it. And I just have to mention that it was a completely pointless act and if he’d know Dean at all, he’d have known it wouldn’t work.

So have fucking Sam & Dean though.  You can’t just shit all over Cas & then forget everything questionable other characters have done because they’re your favourites.  Talk about being biased.
Also, I wish people would leave the ‘conspired with the King of Hell’ off that list because OH, IT’S NOT LIKE SAM OR DEAN HAVEN’T EVER DONE THAT.  JFC.
Also, Sam & Dean haven’t betrayed each other on occasion?  Are you kidding me?  This is the same thing with every time someone speaks out on some of the problematic things Jared says, they automatically throw in “BUT MISHA, HE’S A PERVERT & A TERRIBLE PERSON, & I DON’T KNOW HOW YOU CAN EVEN LIKE HIM” and generally just trying to paint HIM as the bad guy, without acknowledging the questionable things Jared has done.
Cas isn’t perfect.  Neither are Sam or Dean.  That’s it.
Stop trying to make it a fucking competition on who’s worse.  Dislike a character all you want, but when you add things to your list that your favourite has also done & ignore THAT, your bias is clearly showing.

The confession wasn’t about Sam and Dean being better than Cas. It’s about how Cas has been used as a plot device by the writers. Obviously, Sam and Dean have conspired with demons or done things wrong. Dean selling his soul led to him breaking the first seal, and Sam killing Lilith broke the final seal. They kick started the apocalypse. They are the main characters on the show, and their actions moved the plot along.
Since the beginning of season six, it has been Castiel’s actions which have moved the plot along. His mistakes have kept the ball rolling. Some were mistakes and others, like breaking the wall in Sam’s head, were intentionally harmful. Sam and Dean have been dragged along and involved in the angel war only due to Castiel’s involvement.
Castiel was great in seasons four and five when he was warrior of the lord, and his story was interesting in season six when he was endeavoring to find his way without the help of his friends and playing both sides. Since then, his character has been fucked with to the point that I don’t even know who he is. The more permutations he goes through the less interesting he is to me.
It’s unclear to me why you felt the need to drag the actors into this conversation. They are immaterial to the discussion. The fact that you ignored what the post was about to jump into the competition tirade says something as well.

Really, so by your definition, Sam & Dean would also be plot devices, as they ‘help move the plot along’.
I threw the bit with the actors in because it HAS turned into a competition, just like this post. You clearly don’t see it that way, and that’s fabulous, but I have every right to say if I agree with it or not.
And you didn’t tag it with Castiel, because you only wanted like-minded people that agreed with your views. But if you look in the comments, I’m not the only one that disagrees with you, but I’m the only one singled out(as usual).
(Also, Sam’s character has been fucked with a lot too. If you don’t see this, you’re missing something).

Nice try, but no. Sam and Dean are main characters acting to move the main storyline, their storyline, forward in the original series. Since the beginning of S6, Castiel, a secondary character, has kept the angel war plodding along, and it dragged the main characters along with it. Up until the Gadreel possession, Sam and Dean have been only tangentially related to that storyline. 
No, I didn’t tag it as Castiel because I don’t hate Cas, but I knew I’d be accused of Cas hate if I did. And I was. If you’re talking about me singling you out, it’s because yours was the only comment that I got notification of. It’s nothing personal. I don’t even know you. You responded extremely emotionally, for whatever reason, to my post, so replied. Simple as that.
Yeah, Sam has been fucked with, but he’s still Sam. I don’t know what Cas is about anymore. They pretty much made him uninteresting to me with that whole flower-child-Cas crap in S7 and treating him as comic relief. It was an insult to the character.
I’m not saying, btw, that you can’t disagree with me. You can go on loving him all you want. Just don’t make assumptions about what I think based on your fights with other bloggers.

To bad she turned out to be nothing but a red herring.

To bad she turned out to be nothing but a red herring.

Anonymous said: Maybe it's because of the 'all over the place' writing but it strikes me that angels constantly fail at their 'mission' because they aren't that bright. After all this time it's the only thing that makes sense. In a cosmic sense they're like five yr olds with magic. Considering their constant interfering and destructiveness I'm surprised they haven't torn the earth in two by now.

Given the fact that Lucifer got kicked out of heaven because he wouldn’t bow down to humans, you gotta wonder how those still in heaven managed to stay. Did they lie about caring for humans or did they just lose their sense of mission and become so incredibly self-centered?

And yeah, the do seem pretty dumb these days, but I think that’s the writers. If you think about it, Zachariah, Uriel, Raphael, Michael — they weren’t dumb. They just underestimated Sam and Dean. Angels in the past couple of seasons are pretty much just like humans, dumb ones as you say, but then there’s not much difference with demons or other monsters either. They’re just humans with special powers.

Nothing is evil or scary anymore. I miss that show.

I hate “Citizen Fang” for the most part, but what I did like is how it was told so that from an objective POV, it really did look like Benny did the killings. Dean never proved he didn’t. He was…

I really like this paragraph:

There’s a layer to “better brother to me” that’s dark and painful; “I never had to destroy myself for Benny the way I have for you.  I never had to be ripped apart for him like I have for you.”  Obviously this is completely unfair to Sam because those were Dean’s choices and the consequences of his choices that have led to him being ripped apart - physically, mentally, and emotionally.  And those are choices that not only did he never have to make regarding Benny; he never would have made those choices for anyone but Sam.  And if Benny had turned around and done any of the exact same things Sam has done, it wouldn’t have anywhere even remotely resembling the same impact.  

I didn’t get into Dean’s PoV at all in my Sam’s attitude towards Benny post, but I think it’s really, really, interesting. I wonder if part of the reason he is able to accept Benny’s monstrousness in a way he could never accept Sam’s is because he doesn’t have that kind of relationship with Benny. He doesn’t feel responsible for him the way he does with Sam.

Right. Benny is what he is, but Sam is his little brother whom he’s supposed to protect. Sam is human, and protecting Sam includes protecting Sam from himself if he’s doing something that threatens that humanity. Benny drinking blood is “natural” in the sense that that is what vampires do. The boat has already sailed for Benny. Sam doing it isn’t — it means that Sam is destroying himself.

I’m not excusing Dean’s controlling behavior, but I see why it becomes worse and worse. He used to protect Sam from random monsters, then from himself, demons, Lucifer, angels, then from friends (Cas), his own memories … Now, if Dean were mentally and emotionally healthy, his reaction might be different, but given his own trauma, his instinct is to double-down on protect Sam like John is a voice in his head like it’s an order from a commanding officer in the heat of battle.

Does becoming a demon silence that voice? Is that how he finds some distance and clarity?
