I’m watching all my favorite shippy X Files episodes tonight. This was a wonderful idea.

Season six was a gold mine.

outpastthemoat:

if you are genuinely concerned about the idea of romantic cas/hannah, i will tell you my crackpot theory. given the amounts of star wars references in the carver era i would not be at all surprised to see a scene where dean hopelessly decides there will never be anything between him and cas because he thinks cas loves someone else, tells cas he’s going to take himself out of the picture so cas has a chance for an apple pie life, only to have cas roll his eyes and explain that, dean, it’s nothing like that at all, hannah is my sister. and then sam blows up the death star and they all join an ewok conga line.

My Brother’s Keeper: On the Topic of “Angelcest”

defilerwyrm:

It’s like this.

The concept of angelic siblinghood is at once an abstraction and a concrete “fact” (in-setting, of course). On an abstract level, “brother” and “sister” are little more than approximations for angels’ understanding of the relationship as it applies to…

problem with that is, they’ve never talked about any of this stuff on the show.  They’ve only reinforced over and over that angels are siblings.  They call each other brothers and they act like brothers to one degree or another.  Think of Michael and Lucifer.  Michael explains how they are brothers and that he raised him and how he feels about him as an older brother.  They are compared to Sam and Dean as brothers. Or think of the time when Cas killed Raphael and she said, you would do this to your own brother?  I don’t care if they are not biologically related.  No one thinks that to begin with.  It is a HUGE problem to describe angels as siblings through the course of like six years in many different ways and then have two of them hook up with each other.  Dean assuming that Cas would have sex with another angel has no bearing on the subject bc Dean is mostly ignorant about how angels relate to each other.  Even in context it makes no sense, because he is talking about ‘cloud seeding’, he is talking about angels having sex with each other somehow in their own bodiless forms. 

Sure, some angels are closer to each other than others.  I just always figured it was because there are so many angels they couldn’t all know each other.  Not that they are not then ‘related’ in a sibling like relationship.  But my confusion over the matter only points to the problem I already stated.  The show itself has not explained angels relationships to each other enough to justify them having 2 angels hook up with each other.  The concrete things that we do know are that angels call each other brothers and they all call God their Father (their relationship to their Father is compared to Dean’s relationship to his father) and that many examples have been given to us that they do indeed have sibling relationships, not only ‘military’ ones.

okay do you just seriously not comprehend what a metaphor is or how they work or what ‘cause

wow

They call each other brothers and they act like brothers to one degree or another.

I literally just spent over 900 words demonstrating that this is not limited to human blood siblings in either sense, but okay, we’ll play, since that clearly wasn’t enough for you.

So you’re saying that Benny’s dialogue reinforce the idea that he and Dean were literally brothers and there’s no other logical reading, because the text didn’t ~go into~ whether or not he was using the word “brother” as a figure of speech, term or endearment, etc. o ok

Michael explains how they are brothers and that he raised him and how he feels about him as an older brother.

You’re misrepresenting his line. This is what he actually said.

MICHAEL: You know, my brother, I practically raised him. I took care of him in a way most people could never understand, and I still love him.

»practically

»in a way most people could never understand

Approximations, translations, figures of speech – and in the midst of deliberately trying to manipulate & intimidate Dean towards a Yes. Michael is saying “I was always there for Lucifer even when God wasn’t, just like you were always there for Sam” [neither of which are strictly true] “but I’m going to kill him anyway because that’s the right thing to do, therefore by extension you’re going to kill Sam.” It boggles my mind that anyone could be so callow and dense as to treat this as meaning “angels are literally, solely, directly equivalent to human siblings” and yet

They are compared to Sam and Dean as brothers

Drawing a comparison is the same as stating an equation now? You know you can describe the similarities between apples and oranges and that isn’t the same as saying an apple is an orange, right?

Dean assuming that Cas would have sex with another angel has no bearing on the subject bc Dean is mostly ignorant about how angels relate to each other.

Your “argument” is that because they consistently use the WORD “brother” that they are brothers the way human siblings are and no other meaning of the term is possible. Yet up to that point Cas had consistently referred to other angels as such to Dean and he, being all about sibling relationships, didn’t get the impression that angels share that kind of relationship. He had just as much knowledge as the audience at that point. And what was Cas’ response? As bert-and-ernie-are-gay pointed out, he said NOTHING WHATSOEVER about “ew that would be gross” or “You  realise that would be incest right” or “That would be like you and Sam hooking up”. Nothing of the sort. Castiel has said nothing that reinforces the idea that there would be an incestuous element to it.

angels call each other brothers and they all call God their Father

So do Abrahamic cultists. I’ve explained this already. You must have skimmed that part, because it’s really easy to grok.

They’ve only reinforced over and over that angels are siblings. […] that many examples have been given to us that they do indeed have sibling relationships, not only ‘military’ ones

*buzzer sound* You’re flat-out, straight-up, factually wrong. Not only do these statements directly contradict each other but the FOUNDATION of the angels’ relationships is as an ARMY. They CONSTANTLY refer to each other in terms of “superior” and “underling” in addition to “brother” and “sister”.

Uriel and Castiel are originally presented as nearly equal in rank in 4.07; the former is described as a “specialist” (a destroying angel) and the latter speaks directly of their orders. In 4.10 Dean refers to Castiel as Uriel’s "boss" and Uriel immediately knows whom he’s talking about. 4.16 reveals that Castiel has been rebuked by his "superiors" in "the garrison" which is a military term for the entirety of an army’s forces stationed in a city, base, or equivalent territory.

Cas says that he and Anna “have a history” while expressing regret for what he’s been ordered to do to her (4.10).

Castiel expresses his “brotherhood” with Uriel in direct terms of brothers-in-arms (4.16):

CASTIEL: We’ve been friends for a long time, Uriel. Fought by each other’s sides, served together away from home, for what seems like forever. We’re brothers, Uriel.

Had he started off with “we’re brothers” the connotations would have been different, but he didn’t. He started with their shared military experience and concluded brotherhood, which makes it the “brothers in arms” sense, not the “we were raised together by a common parental figure” sense. “We are metaphorically brothers” is the conclusion.

The entire premise of 4.16 and 4.20 was that Anna, then Castiel, were recalled from duty due to disobeying their orders to be reprimanded by their superiors.

The archangels are described as living weapons, much in the same way that soldiers are often described – but with a more literal element (4.18).

Anna describes Cas with “He was always a good little soldier. Did anything under orders.” She states that she was Castiel’s and Uriel’s superior prior to her Fall (5.13).

Zachariah refers to himself as having “worked for” the upper echelons of the Host for five or six thousand years. He’s actually kind of a sidebar, as he consistently uses business terms to refer to his relationships to other angels – see 5.18 especially.

Cas describes Balthazar as “a good friend” when the character is first introduced (6.03).

Season 6’s conflict between Cas and Raphael was described as a civil war, not a family feud. (6.03, 6.17, 6.20)

Virgil is Heaven’s weapons keeper (6.15).

Rachel, Castiel’s lieutenant, introduces herself as “his friend”, not his sister (6.18).

Following Castiel’s resurrection in 5.22, Rachel speaks for many others in the Host in expressing the belief that Cas was brought back to be their leader (6.20).

Castiel states that he was formerly a captain of the garrison of angels stationed to watch over Earth (7.21).

Castiel refers to the late Ezekiel as a good soldier (9.01).

The rit zien are field medics, y’know, for battle (9.06).

Angels have been talking to and about each other in military terms well before they ever used the English words for family relations. You cannot erase or ignore that. While (as I’ve already mentioned) some are closer than others, SPN presents its angels as a military cult: an army with the trappings of a priesthood.

I am astounded that all of this has so wholly escaped you.

There Are Many Things - M - ~26KAuthor: imogenbynight aka thecaptainsoiree

Since being sent away from the bunker, Castiel has built a quiet life for himself in Rexford. But there are many things he wants, and many things he needs, and somehow, Dean is at the forefront of all of them.
This is a post 9.03 canon divergent fic in which Dean and Castiel learn, through trial and error, how to be together. WIP. [ao3]

A Place Where Nothing Moves * nc-17 * ~50kAuthor: imogenbynight aka thecaptainsoireeArtist: alt69 aka suchacatGenre: Supernatural/HorrorWarnings: violence, psychological/emotional abuse (parent to child) Posting November 21st

When the wind bent the trees back far enough you could see a light, small and distant, that dipped below the horizon with every rising wave. It sang, as much as a light can sing, and the few sailors who claimed to have reached it told tales on the shore of a song so bright and heady that it could not be replicated with any instrument. Mostly, those sailors were lying, telling stories in exchange for another round of drinks.
There was one sailor who knew the true story. He tried to tell it more than once.
Naturally, nobody was interested.

In 1991, after a week of violent storms and the most frightening day of his short life, Dean’s family was split down the middle. His mother left. His brother, too. For the remainder of his youth, he had nothing but his increasingly distant father, a life constantly uprooted, and the book Sam left behind. A book that spoke of a light on the ocean and a beast that longed to breach it.
Now, seventeen years later in the small fishing town of Jackpine Harbor, Maine, the appearance of a strange light on the horizon and a rash of storms set off memories of the day he’d rather forget, and the town’s newest resident, a veterinarian named Castiel Shurley whose apparent hatred of Dean is neither founded nor avoidable, is just one more thorn in his side.

Hi there :) I know you are caught up with supernatural and are also awaiting the premiere haha so I was just wondering: do you know the best way to find livestreams for the season premiere? I just moved away to college and the cable here doesnt have CW, but we have a way to connect the tv to a laptop! I wanted to invite some people to come and watch it with me in the lounge, but have never hunted down streams before and dont want to put up posters if i cant get it to work :( thanks in advance :D

Hi! I tended to use one of these streams last year, so assuming the people who set them up are still making sure they’re functional they should still be good to use. There’s usually a few people who post lists of links, though I can’t think of any others off the top of my head…

If that doesn’t work, your best bet is to search tumblr’s tags for “spn live stream links” or some variation thereof a few hours before the episode is due to air.

  #squilliamcswiney    #hopefully those streams still work though!    #it's always a pain trying to find a good one
