young dean selling his body to feed him and sam when john was out of town is a major headcanon of mine and i’m never letting it go

'The only thing you're going to see out there 
is Michael killing your brother' 'Well, then I ain't gonna let him die aone'

Despite the fear, facing the end of the world and probably his own death, he stands there, confronting the most powerful angels in the universe. This is Dean. And everything in his heart is love.

"My response to the “I am not a feminist” internet phenomenon….

First of all, it’s clear you don’t know what feminism is. But I’m not going to explain it to you. You can google it. To quote an old friend, “I’m not the feminist babysitter.”

But here is what I think you should know.

You’re insulting every woman who was forcibly restrained in a jail cell with a feeding tube down her throat for your right to vote, less than 100 years ago.

You’re degrading every woman who has accessed a rape crisis center, which wouldn’t exist without the feminist movement.

You’re undermining every woman who fought to make marital rape a crime (it was legal until 1993).

You’re spitting on the legacy of every woman who fought for women to be allowed to own property (1848). For the abolition of slavery and the rise of the labor union. For the right to divorce. For women to be allowed to have access to birth control (Comstock laws). For middle and upper class women to be allowed to work outside the home (poor women have always worked outside the home). To make domestic violence a crime in the US (It is very much legal in many parts of the world). To make workplace sexual harassment a crime.

In short, you know not what you speak of. You reap the rewards of these women’s sacrifices every day of your life. When you grin with your cutsey sign about how you’re not a feminist, you ignorantly spit on the sacred struggle of the past 200 years. You bite the hand that has fed you freedom, safety, and a voice.

In short, kiss my ass, you ignorant little jerks.”

Jensen on the tragic side of Demon!Dean (x)

You know, I really love that we’ll see this side of Demon!Dean as well. The tragic and sad part about his transformation and not just the scary part, because in the end, that’s what this character is most about - he is a product of a string of tragic and sad events. I mean, I love that Dean finally does what he wants without caring what others think, but at what expense? This characters is about showing how all of these things Demon!Dean does - being carefree, enjoying himself, etc. - are things Human!Dean could have embraced the very same way. And not alone, but with his friends. The tragic part is not Dean being violent and scary but that there is seemingly nothing left of who he used to be and who he is at his core, that he simply doesn’t care anymore and is running towards the edge of the cliff with arms wide open…

Like soulless Sam, he doesn’t care — but in a completely different way.

jensenrick said: Sam did feel shame in Faith. While I see your point about Sam owning what he does, ultimately he has to look himself in the mirror. He can't "throw it in Dean's face" because Dean isn't impressed with "what I had to do" statements, those are for Dean alone. Sam will be judged and scolded by Dean when he's himself again, and then it's just the ugly cycle all over again

Yes, if you assume that Dean gains nothing from having been a demon. I’m not going to make that assumption. I’d like to think they are both going to grow from this experience.

As for “Faith,” Sam did stop Sue Ann when he realized that she was killing people based on her own moral code, but I don’t recall him expressing remorse or regret for Dean having benefited from what happened. I doubt he wouldn’t have done it had he known how it worked before hand, but I don’t know about the shame part. I don’t recall that.

Dean Winchester, the man that always cared too much, carried too much guilt and responsibility, until it crushed him.

Sometimes you need to go to the extreme opposite in order to reach middle ground.

I have hopes for Dean, I believe in him. He will get there

Should be interesting to watch.

I guess it would be very painfull to watch though, just the interaction with Sam from the teaser broke my heart. But it looks as a step in the process of development and I love the sound of it. 

I know, but as we discussed before, I think, Dean has been defined by his sense  of responsibility to the point that he didn’t see it as a choice, and he needs to see that he does have a choice. Saving people, protecting Sam — those are choices that he makes.

gottowelwilltravel said: It's weird - I was watching live and my immediate thoughts at the time were 1/ Jared 's immediate answer was that female actors don't change the set dynamic for them (so, professional not misogynistic) 2/he side tracked on a thread as he does 3/ the way he got into his thread seemed like he was already on the defensive on the subject of women on the show *hello hateful askspn campaign last week?* There was no part that made me think he was misogynistic - totally the opposite.

I agree. I think there is a certain portion of the fandom that doesn’t really listen to what is being said. They just have a knee-jerk response to any statement about women that doesn’t perfectly fit what they want or expect to hear. There’s real resistance to recent statements that the show isn’t about romance and here in particular that it is about the emotional relationships between men, specifically familial relationships. I know that some don’t see the value in that, and they are upset that these ideas thwart their expectations or desires.

Anonymous said: I can be wrong, but Sam always has taken responsibility for his actions unlike Dean. Other thing is that Sam don't like it. Sam'd want to be a better person, but he can't (he always makes bad decisions) and so he despises himself for that. Dean, in change, is mostly unable to admit when he's wrong (why is he wrong and how is he wrong ), he's always justifying himself, but don't try to be a better person, because he already thinks himself as a poison. Both brothers have virtues and flaws.

Yeah, I agree, but I think we’d like to see them grow, right? I’d like to see Dean accept his mistakes and apologize for them, I’d like for Sam to realize that mistakes are human. They don’t make him bad. He doesn’t have to be saintly. He can accept his weaknesses without admitting defeat to his dark side.

sparestrange said: I added a transcript of the Nerd HQ panel question in picture format. Listened to the question word for word. :) It's sad that so many people are upset about this because there is literally nothing to be upset about.

Right? Jared and Aisha were talking about how rare it is for a show to really examine the emotional connections between men, and somehow some fans interpret that as being against women. *throws up hands*
