DO YOU KNOW WHAT I NEED MORE THAN ANYTHING
I NEED A KEVIN TRAN EPISODE THAT’S BASICALLY HOME ALONE
SAM AND DEAN HAVE GONE OFF ON A HUNT
KEVIN STAYS AT THE BUNKER TO DO SOME RESEARCH
AND THEN MONSTERS HAPPEN
AND HE HAS TO COME UP WITH WACKY TRAPS TO CATCH/KILL THEM
AND THERE’S A MOMENT WHEN DEAN REALIZES THAT SOMETHING’S WRONG AND YELLS “KEVIN!!” JUST LIKE IN HOME ALONE
IT NEEDS TO BE THE CHRISTMAS EPISODE
- Because if Dean was revealed as a bisexual and came to accept himself, his journey of self-suppression, maturing and self-acceptance would be much more real than what we see on TV most of the time.
There’s a thing about a lot of queer characters out there…they are presented as token queer characters and we don’t get to see any of the work they go through to accept themselves. There’s another thing about queer characters out there…they go through cookie-cutter coming out experiences, which either go the good way or the bad way, but there’s a bunch of variables that rarely changes about them. Real INTERNAL STRUGGLE barely ever gets showcased. People actually NOT COMING OUT TO ANYONE for the biggest part of their lives barely ever get showcased. This creates an understanding that all queer people go through roughly the same process of figuring themselves out and revealing everything to the world around. I’m not saying it’s a bad thing in nd of itself, that’s definitely how it goes for some people out there, but for others it doesn’t, and we need a variety of portrayal.
You know what I’ve seen people who oppose queer interpretation of Dean say, multiple times now?
"If Dean was a queer character, they should have revealed it from the beginning, having Dean fall for a guy right now won’t make sense, so he can’t be a queer character."
This is about a hundred shades of bullshit, pardon my French. It’s WRONG, WRONG, WRONG, I can’t stress this enough. This is a really crappy argument for a whole bunch of reasons.

“I have to go, Dean.”
“You know why.”
“I want to hear one good reason. Any reason you have.”
Castiel sighed and turned away. He flexed and tensed his fingers, a nervous habit he picked up since his fall from grace.
Dean continued. “I thought we agreed that the best plan was to stick together. That’s it. No more flying off.”
Me and my BFF have started working on a cooperative Destiel fic and I am so psyched! We’re posting it all on tumblr at talktomeproject.tumblr.com. It’s a blank slate right now, but if you love destiel, fluff, angst, letter writing, or have read any fics by mtothedestiel on Ao3 or ff.net, then follow us! We’re gonna be up and running in no time.
When Europeans say “Cluedo”, is it pronounced “Clue-doo” or “Clue-doh”?
