Demon!Dean // 10x03 [x]
I just figured out the thing that bugs me so much about the attacks on Supernatural’s producers ad writers in the name of inclusion and social justice…in it’s own way it’s another form of erasure.
The ideas that Supernatural kills all it’s female character or has no minority characters, or when it does, they die - is simply, mathematically wrong. The same goes for LGBT characters. Also - falling victim to the heteronormative, white-washy assumption that all characters are cis, straight and white until declare otherwise is Not Good.
Not only do fans ignore the existence of characters and plot points that don’t serve their anger, but in doing so, they completely erase and ignore minority characters. Attacking the show on twitter for killing women ignore and invalidates all the great women on the show who aren’t dead, and also ignores the impact of the death and role of their deaths in the story.
The idea that for representation to matter - for a minority character to be important enough to really have impact - that said character must receive some sort of validation from the writers or producers, is self defeating. When I see these criticisms I often want to ask - what would you rather have? A female lead? No women die ever? Recast the show with different, more diverse leads? If the answer is “no” then you have to reconsider what it is you actually want and what you’re criticizing.
Every bit of representation matters and it is part of the problem, not part of the solution to ignore that representation and demand MORE because what we have isn’t important enough. Yes, more is important - I want more shows with Female and/or LGBT and/or POC leads. And yes, SPN has done problematic things - but it is not The Worst Show Ever. It’s actually quite good and ignoring the good things the show has done is just a perpetuation of a culture to whom minorities can be invisible.
All I’m suggesting is that before we grab our torches and pitch forks to join the cool kids in their angry mob and the we ask ourselves: what do I want to see? What might I be ignoring that’s already there? And most importantly: What can I do or create on my own to make things better.
That is done soooo fucking well holy bum
The fact that they believe, together they could solve any problem.
WHAT THE FUCK!?
IT IS SHERLOCK
THATS TOTALLY HOW HE’S GONNA COME BACK AFTER REICHENBACH…………??
Did you all realize that this scene is a HELL door open?? the souls are going out of HELL
*ahem* “I may be on the side of the angels, but don’t think for one second that I am one of them.”
It WOULD explain how he’s so smart…

Sammy, all I’m saying is that you’re my weak spot. You are. And I’m yours.
I love how he’s all in Satan mode then all of a sudden wacky moose mode
that one character that’s universally hated by the fandom.
Can someone please edit this so that it says ‘King Douche’
it already does
Between Supernatural, Warehouse 13, Harry Potter and my other supernatural fandoms that all feature cursed objects. It’s a wonder I’m not terrified of second-hand stores.
Supernatural, in which the only way to properly deal with your brother’s death is to drag his corpse home, lay it on the bed and try to sell your soul.
THE ONLY WAY
People who think this was a lead-up to him making a deal baffle me. Those are not a “Let’s deal” face and words. Those are a “You will do what I say or you will not like the consequences” face and words.
#9x23 SPOILERS#Sam Winchester#These are my thoughts as well#He’s not going to sell his soul. He’s going on the offensive.#If he has to spill his blood over Ruby’s Knife and peel Crowley’s skin off inch by inch he will#If he has to pour salt down Crowley’s throat he will.#If he has to inject holy water into Crowley’s veins he will#If he has to inject his own blood into Crowley he will#If Crowley cannot help him he will be the first body in Sam’s path#Sam is on the offensive. And Crowley will pay first. For his sake he’d better help#(Granted Sam doesn’t know what’s going on with the blade and Dean right now but he’s going on the ‘Dean is dead. Crowley to blame’ warpath)
Hell yes, this is Sam “I’m not taking any shit” Winchester.
But the fact that Dean’s last words were: “I’m proud of us.” Four words that are SO heavy they bring the fandom to its knees. In those four words are all nine seasons wrapped into one sentence, and any “hate” or “resentment” Dean had for Sam or what Sam had ever done, as well as what Dean himself ever did went away. Dean didn’t know he’d be coming back a demon in just a little while. These were honest to god what he thought would be his last words on this earth and of even greater importance, to his brother. “I’m proud of us.” I’m proud that we found our father together, that we avenged our mother together, that we stopped the apocalypse together, that we stopped the leviathan together, that we saved countless lives together. Dean wasn’t clinging on to Sam in that scene because he was afraid to die, god knows it’s what he’s wanted for the longest time, he was clinging on to Sam because he was ready, he said those four words because he needed Sam to know he was ready, that he was content with dying right then and there. That even with all the crap they’d been though he was proud of them both, he was proud of his little Sammy.
Sam finally talks to Lucifer when Dean is missing. Merp.
