Didn’t mean to abandon here without a word. For now I’m hanging out at my multifannish tumblr, dotwanders. I have stepped away from SPN fandom (and am feeling dubious about being more than a “casual” watcher of canon, whatever that means, but that’s a different issue than why I’m moving away from the fandom). But who knows what the future holds. I’m not deleting this account, I’ll probably be back at some point to reblog things.
None of which changes the awesome people I have gotten to know because of SPN.

Destiel shippers’ hopes were in an all time high after Stairway to Heaven and Do You Believe in Miracles aired. Metatron’s acknowledgment of Castiel being in love with humanity or everything being about saving just one human seemed to leave things pretty clear. Some fans even called the ship demicanon or canon on Castiel’s side. Destiel shippers couldn’t be more excited for Season 10 and, after a season of a lot of suffering, all was well.
But it didn’t last long as all those hopes were quickly crushed after this weekend’s convention. Jus in Bello has celebrated its 5th edition with the participation of Jensen Ackles, Jared Padalecki and Misha Collins among other members of the cast, as usual. Things started going downside for shippers yesterday during Jensen’s solo panel…
“It was supposed to be, uhm, [Jared laughs awkwardly] so Cas fake heaven was supposed to, I don’t even know what I’m… playing to… It was supposed to be a bunch of pictures of Dean. [people laugh] It really was. Uhm, because I think the writers thought it was funny. But we were like, we were like ‘it IS funny, but we don’t want to give the wrong idea that that’s what’s going on. And so we changed it like that, yes…’ [people start clapping]
But the idea… the idea was that Metatron was messing with Castiel. So we didn’t want to make the episode seem like it was… like we’re hinting towards something. Because that would have ruined the show to make it about something it wasn’t about. So they just changed it to like a really kitschy, goofy, kind of thing.”—Jared Padalecki JIB:5 panel Sunday 2014 (via momecat)
“That [a chuckle] is the biggest reaction I get out is her. I try to scare the crap out of her, I sneak up and I’m like BOO and she’s just like [chuckles]. She’s gonna make the best horror movie date because the guy will scream and she’ll be like, “ha, you’re an idiot””—Jensen Ackles talking about time with JJ (via freckledbuttchester)
