Well so far the storyline only implies Dean is bi and it can be brushed off as jokes or explained in other ways. It’s not canon that he’s bi, it’s only subtext.
So she’s kind of right in that aspect. However she should have noticed the many “jokes” about Dean’s sexuality. It’s a reoccurring thing…. from the beginning of SPN to the current season. And it’s a just DEAN thing. No one character is “joked” about in this way. Why is that? Well, what we (pro-canon Destiel shippers) are hoping for is that Dean will officially “come out” in canon, and that these “jokes” about Dean will have existed for a purpose and reason. This would happen either before a Destiel storyline takes place, or at the same time. But I agree Dean’s sexuality is an issue that needs to be addressed in the official canon.
So yeah. The general audience doesn’t see subtext as fact, like shippers might, and needs Dean to “come out” first. But I think the general audience does see that there is an emotional connection/love between Dean and Cas. What they aren’t sure about is Dean’s sexuality… but at this point they should be at least questioning things and thinking… “okay this is a joke… right? Dean’s not bi is he?”
As far as it making sense for his character - it absolutely does! You as a shipper are NOT stupid. You just remember more about Dean’s past and habits and are able to make conclusions based off those things unlike a casual viewer. But the general audience will probably need the show to draw the connections for them. Which I am confident they will do when Destiel goes canon.
If any of your non-shipper friends try to tell you it doesn’t make sense, just read up on your meta and know your stuff! Then you can explain exactly why it does make sense. :)
CloudyJenn is by far one of my favorites… but she posts fics to twitter, not tumblr, mostly I think. Maybe other places, Idk. I found a masterpost of her fics once on tumblr but I didn’t save it. :c She should make an official masterpost somewhere if she hasn’t already…

Haha, yep. basically…
I mostly ship them due to the “profound” intimate emotional connection… I can’t see either of them ever having a female love interest who could hold a candle to what they mean to each other.
But the evidence towards sexual attraction is tangible as well, for sure.

It’s awesome isn’t it?
I guess that makes sense.
But I’m a more of a dom and so ideally I want dom!Cas perspective, but its so hard to find! D=
1) I gained five lbs recently and so now I’m dieting. Which may sound silly, but the reason I am gaining weight is because I am working more, and I work at a resturaunt and eat the food there all the time… and I can’t work less, so I’m going to have to watch what I eat better. Other wise I’ll keep gaining.
2) I have really sensitive teeth. I have to let refrigerated food warm up for a minute before I eat it. I have had this problem ever since I tried using crest whitening strips a couple years ago…
3) I use baking soda as an exfoliating face scrub. :)
4) I have a bladder infection D:
5) Cranberry juice sucks.
6) I’m also on my period.
7) My shoulder hurts.
8) I’m hungry. (Probably because I’m dieting.)
9) We’re out of cat-food and the cat won’t leave me alone. I said I’d go to the store later, Artemis! Stop stalking me!!!
10) I like to complain about things and pass that off as facts about myself.
Tagging: (I’m so sorry guys please don’t feel obligated to do this…)
… how about because I’d get to kill things!!!
This is almost accurate.
I would most likely come back and haunt Ben Edlund and Jeremy Carver until they made destiel canon.
I would write ‘Dean loves Cas’ in the condensation on Jeremy Carver’s bathroom mirror and push Misha on top of Jensen while they were filming…
Well if the purgatory monster is for-sure a dude then it kills my theory… *relieved sigh*
I want to see Destiel acknowledged on screen, but I don’t think it has to be expressed vividly - passionate gay sex. I just want something soft and subtle.
A natural step forward, an acknowledgement of an already existing love.
To me, the way he said it certainly sounded like he was implying something sexual. I realize it normally is a term used to mean unexpected ally, but the way he said it made it seem like he intended it to have a double meaning… Idk, I guess we’ll have to wait and find out. :)
