So you mean to tell me that Castiel — the angel of the Lord that God sent to pull Dean’s ravaged soul from the fires of hell — will only see Demon Dean as a monster and not the Dean that he saved, killed for, and literally fell for?

Anonymous asked: "Did the part where Misha talked about Cas and demon!dean make sense to you? Because I feel like it's so ooc of Cas to just "give up" on Dean like that :("


it’s hard to speculate without seeing how it all plays out, but it doesn’t strike me as out of character for cas. we’ll see what the writers end up doing lmao but

i assume (like there was with godstiel in s6) that there is going to be a moment where cas confronts demon!dean and realizes that the dean he knows is gone,  that there’s no way to save him, and that the best way to honor his memory is to get rid of the monster wearing his face. cas, if anything, is one of the most practical characters on the show, and time and time again he’s shut himself down emotionally to ‘do what he has to.’ this is very much falling in line with that - putting his ‘war-torn soldier hat’ back on. 

plus we have cas getting weaker and weaker, while demon!dean is getting more and more powerful - his options are really limited. what is he supposed to do? should he let demon!dean run around and potentially hurt a lot of people or try to stop him?  

i’m not worried about their relationship overall (other aspects of s10 are what are making me DDD:), because we know cain was able to overcome the mark and his demonhood, and the same will eventually happen for dean, as well as cas realizing that there is a potential to save him - and once he does, he’ll do all he can to help.

"Sam can’t find him because he doesn’t want to be found. Because [Dean is] having fun and he knows that if Sam finds him, he’s going to do his best to reverse the demon in him. But he’s like, “I’ve got the golden ticket.” This might be a little heavy, but it made me think about heroin addicts. To them, they found the magic key. They found the recipe to happiness. People are like, “You can’t do this. This is going to ruin your life,” and they’re like, “Screw you! This makes me feel amazing. I’m going to do this. You’re the one that’s an idiot. This is the best stuff ever.” And… everyone else is watching this steady decline of this person. That’s kind of demon Dean."

Misha’s Zap2it Interview


Zap2it: Where do we find Castiel at the start of Season 10?
Misha Collins: We find Castiel beginning to try to help with the Dean-as-a-demon problem. But he will also be trying to grapple with his own issues because of his fading grace. Castiel is running on stolen angel grace and it’s fading, which means he’s getting weaker and weaker. His life force is draining out. Those are the two big issues that Castiel is confronted with when we find him in the beginning of Season 10. 

Last week you tweeted a photo of you looking pretty beat up and bloody. Is Castiel’s fading grace going to be taking a physical toll on him?
Absolutely, yes. 

Yikes. Even though you’re a series regular, should we be worried that this could be the end of Castiel?
Yes, you should be worried … Isn’t that a good tease? No, Castiel is not going to be dying in the beginning of the season or any of the scripts or stories that I have seen outlined in the first half of the season. To my knowledge, this won’t mean his expiration. But he is getting closer and closer to expiration and weaker and weaker, and less and less of his angel powers are at his disposal. 

How will Castiel react to finding out that Dean is a demon, and how will that affect their friendship?
It’s definitely driving a very, very large wedge between the two of them. I think that Castiel really doesn’t see Demon Dean as Dean. He sees him as a monster that, one way or another, needs to go. 

Jeremy Carver recently told me that Dean and Crowley are going to get closer as a result of Dean being a demon, so how is Castiel going to feel about that new relationship?
That’s a good question. I can tell you that Cas isn’t really a fan of Dean becoming a demon. [laughs] And by extension, his fraternizing with Crowley. I think that Castiel’s relationship with Crowley is certainly pretty strained. That said, everybody on the show has made deals with the devil, so to speak, over the years. Castiel is definitely conflicted about the character of Crowley. Can I just leave it at, “It’s complicated”? 

Sure, that sounds like a good summation. Near the end of last season, Castiel’s storyline was separate from Sam and Dean’s. Will that continue in the beginning of Season 10 or will we see them join up again?
The storylines are going to be interwoven, but there’s also going to be a strong, independent storyline for Castiel in Season 10. I think that that’s actually true of all of the characters in the show. They all have their own, distinct arcs that are not necessarily interdependent [with] the other arcs. It’s a very much more, I would say, personal season than seasons of the past. It feels like we’re dealing less with the massive, epic stories of heaven and hell and more with the personal stories of the characters that we’ve all come to know and love on the show. Those personal stories, each character will have his own storyline. 

Do you enjoy it more when you get to play that more personal side of Castiel, or do you enjoy it more when it’s the big, epic storylines where everyone is together?
I think that they both have their merits. My favorite is when those two are happening concurrently on the show. I think that’s something that the show does a pretty good job of keeping us grounded in personal storylines. I think that’s why the show has been so successful and has lasted for 10 seasons. At its core, it’s this story of two brothers that are dealing with family issues that we can all relate to, and at the same time, they’re dealing with epic mythology. The fusion of those two scales of storytelling is really compelling and keeps us engaged. I think if we were just watching a show that was about angels and demons and ghouls and goblins and didn’t have that personal, relatable, character story to ground it in, the audience would have left a long time ago. 

Speaking of how long the show has lasted, I’m so excited for the 200th episode this season now that Jeremy announced it’s going to be “musical-ish.” Any chance we’ll get to see you sing in the episode?
I have yet to see the script for the 200th episode, but I do know that Jeremy has said that it’s “musical-ish.” And I do know the fans have long been clamoring for a “musical-ish” episode. So I can’t wait to read the script and find out exactly what I’ll be doing. 

How does it feel knowing that “Supernatural” has reached a milestone like 200 episodes? Not many shows can say they’ve made it that far.
It’s kind of surreal. You’re right, not many shows at all can brag that they’ve made it that far. We were calculating recently and I think it’s something like 20 television dramas of all time have made it that far. It’s really amazing. I started working on the show in the first episode of Season 4, and I, as a rational human being, thought, “Well, this is probably pretty close to the end of the series. It maybe has another year left in it.” That’s typical of reasonably successful shows. They’ll go to five seasons and maybe make it to 100 episodes, then they get syndicated and peter out. I don’t think any of us imagined in Season 4 or Season 5 that we were going to make it to Season 10 and 200 episodes. I think that we’re all really happy to have had this long run. It’s really gratifying. 

What are you most excited for fans to see from Season 10?
I think that Season 10 has the potential of being a very emotionally impactful season and I think that the show is really getting to its roots of being very character-driven and about personal character struggles. I’m excited about that. 


What qualities does being a demon bring out in Dean? Does it magnify any of the aspects of him that we’ve seen already?
Oh, it’s like an ultra version of a womanizing party animal. He’s out partying in Vegas with the King of Hell, he’s got backstage passes and he doesn’t give a sh-t about anything. That’s essentially what we’re going to see. (via)

You bet your ass I can.

Anonymous asked: "what are your thoughts on Cas having his own storyline?"






Are you referring to him being thrown aside to deal with heaven in season 10?

I’m pretty much with everyone else when it comes to this discussion. It doesn’t feel like ‘Cas’s own storyline’ to me. it just feels like the writers don’t know where to put him so they’ve decided to put him somewhere where he doesn’t want to be. Out of sight and out of mind. Because god forbid we put him in a situation where he wants to actively help his best friends and be happy for once. 




This whole leading the angels thing is pissing me off too. Jesus. He doesn’t want to be a leader. He doesn’t want to be in charge of heaven. And I feel like they’re just throwing this at Cas and at us to show us that Castiel may not have a choice in this matter. Whether he likes it or not, the Angels are going to look up to him and expect him to show them the way. Regardless of the fact that Cas is much happier with Sam and Dean.





Pretty much, he can be anywhere else but with dean and sam because ‘oh no. dean and Cas have chemistry. and we can’t have that happening! Instead, we’ll have him worry about heaven rather than checking up on how Sam is doing after just having found out that Dean is dead.

If they seriously think that Cas would not help Sam in anyway to save Dean i will flip a damn table. never mind the fact that in previous seasons, Dean’s safety has always been one of cas’s top priorities. jfc.

it’s as if the writers are ruling out all the previous seasons all together for christ sake. “I was getting too close to the humans in my charge. You." "I’m hunted. I rebelled. And I did it, all of it, for you." "i’m doing this for you, Dean. I’m doing this because of you."I’ve been trying to stay one step ahead of them, to keep them away from you."  /insert Metatrons quote about it all being to save Dean Winchester here/ 

And now, I swear i’m not trying to turn this around to make it being all about Destiel. I’m just stating all the canonically proven facts about what Cas cares about most and putting this in to show why Cas’s ‘own story arc’ is the dumbest and out of character shit they can pull. 

Cas helped heaven the best way he can, I know he’s redeeming himself for unintentionally letting the angels fall. but having the angels pull him in and keeping him there to ‘clean up heaven.’ no. fucking no.

clean up your own god damn shit. you guys were the ones having an all out war to see who had the biggest dick. that aftermath isn’t cas’s responsibility. he’s done the best he can for them by stopping metatron. and he has. he did. by helping Sam and Dean. 

And after this goddamn bombshell has been put over his head about Dean, do you seriously think he would prance around cleaning up whatever the fuck they need cleaning up? “Oh but there’s angels on the loose still fighting and causing shit on earth.” “There’s still rogue angels and others that are lost” 

I. don’t. care. why the hell do you need Cas to hold your hand and tell you how to track down some angels. god. are they that incompetent to understand that they can do all of this themselves?? “They don’t understand freewill. they’re dumb” find someone else to do the damn job. bring grabriel back, there’s a huge ass opening for that to happen. 

arghdsgfhsjdlagjlsdag in any case, the way they’re putting Cas into this situation feels forced. unbelievably forced. jesus. we need Ben edlund back. he fucking gets Cas. he understands his character. s8 was god damn beautiful. 

The writers now are just shoving him anywhere and far away from dean and sam to hold off any potential… i don’t even know. to lessen fuel our dean and cas needs I suppose? 

and if that’s the case, then it makes me sad, because in all honestly, I would much rather have dean, cas and sam working together and no romantic relationship whatsoever then the crap they’re putting on us now.

It’s… ugh dfjhgfdjahg it’s not even about destiel at all though, and that’s what frustrates me most. Just give us the trio again, and let us as a fandom enjoy our meta’s and our wonderful wandering minds of things that probably aren’t even there in our own time. 

Don’t separate a wonderful friendship just because you’re scared of how other people see them. We all have our own perspective of the relationships in the show and that’s just how it is. We’ve been happy with the interactions through-out season 4-8 and to rip it all away because of the potential that we saw in those seasons. it’s stupid. it’s fucking stupid. And i’m angry.

end rant.

when it comes to season 10 right now


This explains perfectly how I feel about the whole situation.
Obviously right now we don’t know for absolute sure how the season is going to pan out but if they completely dismiss Cas I will flip shit. The amount of wasted potential that has already gone down on this show needs to stop. Please stop throwing away beautiful story lines and characters.
As it says above, I would definitely rather have the team free will friendship back than any Destiel.
(Sorry for adding my shit to your post)

Don’t be sorry, i’m happy to see any other people’s input. It’s all a very sensitive subject for us in the fandom right now. Because I really feel that if they continue treating Cas the way they are, it’s just proof (to me) that they’re trying anything to keep him in the show just to keep us watching the show.

Because they know that (for a lot of us) Cas is our weakness. And if they kill him off then they would lose a lot of viewers. So the easiest way to make us stay is to at least have him there. But, in the far corner, away from the boys. Not to worry though! They’ll make sure Cas shows up to see sam or dean every seventh episode to say a few lines to keep us placated.

Omg both of your points are so amazing and valid that I just feel like rolling up into a ball and crying. I mean, why must the writers do this to their fanbase? Because seriously, as a destiel shipper I don’t even NEED destiel to actually happen for me to continue watching the show! We have fanfiction for that. Not that destiel wouldn’t be absolutely wonderful, though. No, all that I truly want is to see in the series is Castiel finally being in the presence of his friends again and being happy, and to see him helping Sam with finding Dean because, honestly, after all that they have been through, the two of them freaking deserve it.

Sam is in need of companionship during his time of grieving and it should have been Cas who was with him during this time. As soon as Castiel defeated Metatron, he should have zapped away to Sam’s side, plain and simple. Especially when any other angel could have taken upon Cas’s burden. With how prideful some angels can be, I’m sure there was at least one who could have risen upon the occasion to become a leader. But no, only Cas is capable of doing it, even though his own grace is weakening itself. Why? What makes Cas so special? Sure he has gained humanity, which does in fact distinguish him from most of the angels, but what good is humanity when you are attempting to take back Heaven? Cas does not necessarily have to be in command and I know for a fact that, as a character, he would help out the cause while still attempting to save Dean. All I’m saying now is that the reasoning for it seems stupid to me, and that the writing is becoming more and more… well, to put it frank, shitty. And mean. Like the writers are purposefully putting up a wall between them and pushing Castiel away from the Winchesters.

I had to reblog again because what you said here is exactly the point I’m trying to emphasize. Thank you afkfahdhs
