‘The Profound Bond’ - A new romantic comedy starring Jensen Ackles and Misha Collins. When Federal Agent Dean Winchester gets paired with an angel as part of the Bureau’s new Human-Angel Cooperation Initiative, the partnership seems less than ideal. Castiel is arrogant, painfully inept in the ways of normal human interaction, and less than stellar at routine questioning. But as time passes, the human and angel begin to find themselves growing less at odds and more endeared to each other. Loosely inspired by aesc’s Below Skyscrapers.
This is how I saw the scene. Period.
DEAN PRAYS TO CAS
I’m not much of a praying type, but I prayed to you, Cas, every night.
#oh honeys ‘what broke the connection’ #‘i don’t know’ #no you don’t because it doesn’t make sense #none of it has ever made sense #why castiel turned his back on a lifetime of faith in god and fellowship in heaven #for some idiot who sings off-key to music that sounds a bit like a garbage truck doing a collection run #why dean trusts something that isn’t human so completely #even after he betrays you breaks your brother and disappears for months at a time #why dean kneels on the floor of that crypt and begs #(‘cas — no. cas…cas!’) #for cas to not land the killing blow #but he leans into the touch and fists a handful of that trenchcoat anyways #it just doesn’t make sense. #except maybe it’s starting to #(‘you heard me didn’t you?’) #(‘yes i heard you’) #he told you what it meant for him to pray #‘it’s the same as begging’ #so when he’s begging at your feet with the sound of his bones breaking still grating against your vessel’s eardrums #and the sound of him choking on his own blood fills the crypt like rising water #he’s praying #you /idiot/ he’s praying #and you make sense of it by figuring out who he’s praying to and for #… #oh no i made myself very very sad #:( (via divachester)
I know we’re all talking about the “I need you” line, and while that was the most heart wrenchingly poignant thing ever, I’d like to address another line in particular:
Now we all know that Dean has a sense of self-worth that could fit on the head…
This is what made the difference.
Fake!Dean says ‘please don’t do this!’ His words mean ‘you mustn’t kill me, it’s wrong because it will destroy me and I matter!’
But, oh, the real Dean says ‘this isn’t you, you’re family, we need you, I need you.’ His words mean ‘you mustn’t kill me, it’s wrong because it will destroy you and you matter!’
Fake!Dean protests because his life matters to him.
Dean protests because Cas’ life matters to him.
CAS HOLDING DEAN’S WRIST
DEAN CLUTCHING CAS’ ARM
CAS “CARESSING” DEAN’S FACE
A stronger connection. A profound bond.
Dean: What broke the connection?
“Misha! We’re missing the gay angel!”
Hahahaha what the fuck!?!? XDD Love Sams expression, Deans smirk and Castiels blush x3
…it really is extremely intimate even in a physical way: it’s in his room that’s the first he’s ever had and where he means to keep the precious things he’s collected in his life, and he wants to invite Cas into it. the whole prayer is presented as being half a conversation, pierced by the lack of a returning voice. and how many intimate conversations have happened between them on a bedside?
“What were you dreaming about?”
“I can’t do it, Cas. It’s too big. Alastair was right. I’m not all here. I’m not—I’m not strong enough.”
“I’m doing this for you, Dean, I’m doing this because of you.”
“Look, next to Sam, you and Bobby are the closest things I have to family—that you are like a brother to me.”
“I’m afraid I might kill myself.”
sitting alone in the dim lighting on his bed that remembers him, Dean finishing the episode with “Where the hell are you?” and looking around in hope he might see Cas… (x)
WHO IN THE HELL GAVE YOU THE RIGHT?!
All we need now is Dean and Cas on opposite sides of a wall through time and space and we’d have the most heart-breaking Superwholock gifset of all time.
Someone would pay for this.
I DON’T WANT SUPERWHOLOCK ANYMORE MAKE IT GO AWAY
