A Disney Princess request! The asker suggested Sam be Belle, which probably made more sense, but I couldn’t resist the urge to draw Sam in Jasmine’s costume. Plus she disagrees with her dad a lot, so it sorta works? 

IS NOBODY GOING TO TALK ABOUT CAS???

I think Cas would approach the birthday party of a 9-year-old girl with same intensity as Apocalyptic events… The thing about Cas is that he doesn’t really have a barometer in the same way… To him, everything is important.

He Was Raised By A White Mom And Didn't Think The Cops Were Out To Get Him. Until They Got Him.

dynastylnoire:

I heard his story on NPR. His mom raised him to “not see color” etc. And the cops beat  the hell out of him when they pulled him over. It took seeing him in jail beaten half to death for her to see that race matters every day.

When I do charity events dressed as Batgirl, all the children of color are absolutely overjoyed. They literally embrace me and I can see them realize that their own race and skin color is not a hindrance to their creativity, as everything they see and experience has been telling them ever since they were old enough to process media.
The white children are hesitant and some attempt to quiz me or insist that I’m not ‘right’ or ‘real’. They are repeating what they have been told and what they have seen all their lives. I explain that Batman believes that anyone can be a hero if they are a good person and work hard, no matter what they look like. So of course Batgirl and Robin can be Black or Chinese or Spanish or anything, because that doesn’t change who they are.
The kids accept this and by the end of the event we’re all holding hands and talking about video games. I think representation is more important than ‘accuracy’ and I won’t be involved with an organization that doesn’t agree with that.

So I’ve been watching Supernatural.  I know, I’m really late to the party and man it was hard to wait, what is it, how many seasons for Castiel to show up? Four?

Anyway, Castiel falling.  Which is mostly me messing around but … you know.

Ugh, I had gained SO much positivity about S10 at the fan con, and now it's all ruined by S10 spoilers. How could Sam be so stupid? Can Sam do ANYthing right in Dean's eyes? Why the hell don't they involve Cas? Can the brother relationship get any more toxic? Don't answer the last one, I know the answer is Yes. At this point, it seems the only decent ending is for Sam and Dean to part ways, hopefully amicably (but more likely with hate) and moving on with separate lives.

obsessionisaperfume:

I’m sorry the spoilers are causing you so much distress!  I’m a little concerned about Sam, too, but where their brother is concerned, both Sam and Dean are pretty much Stupid Squared.  *sigh*  So this news isn’t at all surprising.

I don’t think, though, that this is going to end up being the usual kind of Stupid Winchester Trick.  Last season was all about making Dean realize how really terrible the Winchester merry-go-round was for both of them.  This season, it’s Sam’s turn.

And he needs a turn, because as much as he says he gets that they need to break this cycle of sacrifice, I don’t for one minute believe that he understands that he’s just as messed up on the subject as Dean.  He really does not handle losing Dean at all well, as we saw in Faith and Mystery Spot and I Know What You Did Last Summer and all the season 8 flashbacks.  He may say he’s okay with Dean dying if that’s what Dean wants, but he’s really, really not, as we saw at the end of season 9.

So I think season 10 is going to be a wake-up call for Sam (and really, at this point it’s not so much a call as a four-alarm claxon), and he’s going to be realizing that he’s just as broken as Dean about keeping each other alive at all costs, just not in the same ways.  Once they both understand that, they’ll be able to address the actual problem and not the problem they think they’re talking about, because Sam and Dean have been talking past each other all their lives, thinking they know what the other one means and that the other one understands what they mean, and most often being wrong (sometimes spectacularly so) about both.

Demon!Dean actually makes me very hopeful that we’re going to see Dean being able to look at his brother and see Sam as something besides an extension of himself.  Human Dean really never saw Sam as his own person, and consequently some of his self-loathing spilled over onto Sam.  That’s why it seems that Sam can’t do anything right as far as Dean is concerned—Dean very seldom feels that he can do anything right.   

Now that he’s a demon, we’re going to see him shed a lot of that emotional baggage (not all of it, because DEAN WINCHESTER OMG) that’s obscured his view of Sam as a capable adult who can take care of himself.  So he’s literally going to be seeing Sam with new eyes in Season 10, and I’m hoping that his new insights will stick once he’s back to being Dean and not Demon!Dean.

As for Cas, I don’t think it’s so much a case of they’re not involving him, it’s that we’re at a point in the narrative where the three of them had to be separated and at their lowest points in order to make them see the things they need to see about themselves.  One of the things Cas needs to figure out is that his place is not in Heaven, it’s with the Winchesters.  

I’ve already said that I think Cas and Dean’s storylines have started to converge, and I expect that we’ll see Cas working with Sam and building up that relationship.  Carver’s line about Cas not wanting to be a burden to Sam tells me that he thinks he’s only valuable to Dean; season 10 is going to show him that he’s wrong about that.  We started to see a little of that in Season 9, but I’d bet it’s going to be one of the big themes in Cas’ story arc next season.

And I know you said not to, but I’mma answer that last question:  No, I really don’t think the brothers’ relationship can get any more toxic. Season 9 was all about pushing the codependency to the breaking point, getting them to the absolute worst place so that the only way they could go from there is up.  They’re not quite there yet, but they will be by the middle of Season 10, and probably before that, and once that happens, I don’t think that the best solution can be for the boys to go their separate ways any more.

Because Dean finally got what Sam had been saying all through Season 9.  It took dying for him to do it, but he finally understood Sam’s POV.  That’s huge; Dean’s never fully understood where Sam was coming from about anything.  Even when Sam disagreed with him, Dean always counted on the fact that John raised both of them to mean that, when you get right down to brass tacks, he and Sam thought the same way.  He never took into account that while John raised himhe was the one who raised Sam.  Even if he had, he wouldn’t have thought it made any difference, and that’s just about as wrong as you can get.

That one moment of recognition is the first crack in the cycle of sacrifice.  Put pressure on it, poke at it, pull at it to see what else is there, and the cycle is going to break.

Season 10 is gonna poke it SO HARD.

Here’s my drawing for teamfreewill-fanart's November challenge!
The heels of her boots were inspired by these but instead they’ve got the toy army men Sam crammed into the ashtray and legos Dean shoved into the vents. I’m not crying I’ve just got a branch in my eye
