You know I keep seeing a lot of people saying that if Destiel becomes Canon that the shippers are gonna be pissed because it’s not gonna be feminized or cutesy like they’ve built it up in their heads and fanfics.
Now I can’t speak for other shippers but for me personally I’d actually be disappointed if it was cutesy or feminized. Not because there’s anything wrong with that, I do read the fanfiction and roll around from all the adorable. But in Canon, in the show, based on their personalities it wouldn’t work. Cas is still socially awkward and Dean is still not able to show his feelings all the time. He puts on this front and I feel like it would be difficult to break past that.
Honestly I feel like their relationship would be just like the gif. They’re both idiots and Dean has his pride and I can’t see the sweet touches or them calling each other baby in cute voices. I can see one of them slamming the other against a wall trying to get the other to finally understand what was between them. Either Cas trying to break through Dean’s ‘not gay’ attitude. Or Dean trying to get the oblivious Cas to realize that he is in love with the baby Angel.
I can see them cuddling after a hunt where one of them almost died, wrapped in each other to prove that they still have each other. But I can also see Sam walking in and Dean jumping up in embarrassment. Not because he’s with a guy necessarily but just because he was being mushy in general.
I don’t need one of them to become girly. I don’t need their relationship to become the focus of the show. I don’t want Sam to disappear. And I don’t want the Cas and Sam bromance to end. Basically what I’ve seen from posts is that people don’t like Destiel shippers because they feel like given our way we’d change the whole show.
For me I’d keep it the same. They’d still be dumb, and piss me off and make dumb decisions. Cas, Dean and Sam. Because all three are dumb and make horrible decisions. But the brother relationship would remain intact, they would still hunt, they would still have temper tantrums but given my way this would be broken up with some hot dean and Cas kissing. Some moments where they’re forced to acknowledge what’s between them and finally a moment where they realize that they love each other. Like I said, I don’t want the relationship to be the show but I would like it shown and realized.
If my boys never become Canon I can accept that, it’s not what I want, but I can accept that. Because I don’t come to a fandom for the couple. I come for all of it. The story. The characters. The relationships. Everything is important to me. Does that mean if my boys don’t get together I won’t be disappointed? No. I absolutely will be. But I’ll still watch the show because it’s amazing and I love it.
