This is my brain on fandom crossovers, yay.  
Still kind of numb from last night's episode. I honestly don't know what I should be feeling at this moment regarding Show; I mean, I'm all a bundle of emotions right now that I honestly can't articulate it right now. Which might be a first considering. So I'll distract myself with something else until I can.

I'm kinda working on a Kahlan/Castiel fanmix, because I loves my crackalicious crossover pairings, but I'm thinking of writing a plotty Dean/Castiel story that was inspired by Legend of the Seeker, mostly how it would seem to fit with Castiel's character development in my own head!canon. This is not exactly spoilery for LotS itself, but I'll cut it just to be safe.

Even though I intend to do a fusion-crossover between these two fandoms at some point, there's something that struck me might actually make for a wonderful story. In Legend of the Seeker there's something known as the Con Dar*, or the Blood Rage. Only the most powerful and strongest of Confessors possess this power, which of course Kahlan possesses in the series. It is an uncontrollable and sometimes deadly force and it is described as such:
Con Dar can be invoked only on behalf of a loved one of the Confessor's. Once a Confessor has entered the Con Dar, they can only subsequently enter it in defense of the person for whom it was initially entered.
So I got to thinking, what if Castiel had something similar to the Con Dar? Perhaps it’s something that only the most powerful of angels possess and only those who are considered rightfully honored by God Himself? What if possessing this power, when already cut off from Heaven, makes him question his own role other than just some "poor example" of an angel underling? Since I already believe that God brought Castiel back for a particular purpose...what if Castiel's love and affection for Dean triggers this power to emerge, especially when Dean is in severe danger or when he's in just pure rage like what we saw in 5.18 "Point of No Return" and it can serve them all well in this war, which, inevitably, brings him and Dean closer together and towards their own destinies which are, of course, entwined with each other? And Dean is the only one that can calm him or cease such a power from Castiel once he gets to that point, much like how it's Richard who calms Kahlan when she's in the Con Dar.

* Here's a small clip of Kahlan using the Con Dar in case anyone needs a visual or just to see how awesome it is

Could it work, or am I just crazy? Or is it just crazy enough to work? Mmmmm....

Hee! Sometimes my brain comes up with the most interesting, if not amazing, crossover concepts that even I'm like, whoa. ;D

I am not a SPN fangirl, but what you say makes sense to me. I think you could pull it off and have a really amazing fic right there.

Also, I love Kahlan. (just had to put that in there)

This makes me happy, because I always have a lot of cracky ideas and I sometimes worry they might not work even if they make sense in my head. But this isn't exactly a fusion-crossover, which those can be a bit tricky, but rather a similar plot idea, so yeah it definitely can work. :)

OMG! That is so cool! I may now have to start watching LOTS now.

Also, I love your head!canon which I feel is better than canon. and anything that brings Dean and Cas closer is fine in my book.
Renée: Kahlan. Swept by the wind.rogueslayer452 on April 25th, 2010 04:44 am (UTC)
Legend of the Seeker is REALLY REALLY amazing bb, and I'm not just saying that as a fan (okay, perhaps a little bit) but it's definitely worth watching and it gets better and better, esp in the second season because. Yeah. I cannot pimp it enough. Major love. <3

*nods* Head!canons are much better than actual canons, particularly when you're uncertainty and nervous about where the real canon is headed and you need to stay in a bubble where everything is awesome and epic, which is where I am right now with SPN. Head!canon > real!canon. Also, I love having plots where not only does it further Castiel's character arc and development, esp in the mythology, but furthers Dean/Castiel's relationship as well. It's something I wished would happen more often in the show, but hey, that's where these ideas stem from.

This sounds A-MAZING, bb. Do it!!

:D :D :D

Awesome! Stamp approval by you, definitely a go.

Castiel/Kahlan would be an epic pairing. Now I'm thinking of other possible crossover pairings. Rahl/Bela would be amusing. Sam/Cara would be awesome as well.
Renée: LotS. Cara.rogueslayer452 on April 25th, 2010 12:08 am (UTC)
Oh my God, Sam/Cara. That would be awesome and hilarious at the same time. I can almost imagine seeing Cara trying to understand Sam, but at the same time being mildly amused by him (kind of like how she was with Leo). Or perhaps Cara/Dean? idk, that would be amusing as well. ;D So many pairing possibilities with these characters, I swear.

Dean to me likes the good girl (or boy) type more. Sam is more into the bad girls.

I love crossover pairings. They are so much fun. They can be cracky, or they can be interesting character explorations.
Renée: KAHLAN!BOOBAGE. SEXUALITY INVALID.rogueslayer452 on April 25th, 2010 04:28 am (UTC)
I don't know, I think Dean would actually like having his ass handed to by the bad girls (or guys), someone more of his level and take control. Much like having BAMF!Castiel dominating him every so often. ;) I guess I see both Sam and Dean switching off from the Good and the Bad. Hee.

They really are! :D Especially with multifandom crossovers, it can be a mixture of crack with interesting results to the plot. My mind often thinks in how a particular fandom would fit into the mythology of another and how those characters will interaction with each other.
