Day 21: "OTP 4EVAH!"  
Day 21 - Favorite ship


Dean/Castiel



Obvious answer is obvious. ;p

I've been very dedicated to Dean/Castiel for the last couple of years now. This is the first pairing I've shipped in this particular fandom actually, it started towards the beginning of the fourth season of Supernatural and it hasn't let up, and I don't see it letting up anytime soon.

It's kind of difficult to really explain and pinpoint my love for this pairing, because it's a mixture of many contributing factors. Now I could go into the canonical eyefucking and endless personal space invading and the wall!slamming and the subtextual innuendos, but honestly it runs much deeper than that. There are other people that have manifestos that describe it in thorough detail, and I suggest reading tracy's explanation about her reasons which I pretty much mimic everything she says there. Though in my own personal shorthand version, it's the chemistry and connection they both share with each other that is completely undeniable; it's how they complete one another without really realizing it. There's a level of understanding and trust between them as the seasons continued, and they have some similarities that mirror each other which makes them even more perfect. I just, I really love the human/angel dynamic, which brings another thing that I love about their relationship on the show, being is how they're each other's first friend and confidant outside of their families. The kind of friendship that goes out from their normal realms is fascinating to me, especially when they're both learning things from each other, learning and growing from their experiences together. Something about their friendship, their connection just clicks with me from that alone. Plus, there's a certain salvation theme between them, and how they need each other through these rough patches they have during these last two seasons. It's just perfect, so perfect between them.

Ah, I could go on and on, honestly. I really need to write my own manifesto, heh. I just love Dean/Castiel very much, it's truly is my One True Pairing because I don't really ship anyone else on the show as passionately as I do with these two. I can't help but love everything about them, their friendship, their dynamic, the angst, the USTing, just everything. ♥ I also have a feeling that if the show were on HBO or Showtime, or if Kripke and Co. had the courage and balls to have homosexuality featured on the show (aside from Crowley, that is) Dean/Castiel would've already been established by now. Truth, my bbs.










Runners Up: Six/Gaius (Battlestar Galactica) with their crazy twisted yet adorable love, Helo/Sharon (Battlestar Galactica) and their powerful love that keeps them together through thick and thin, the complete adorableness of Richard/Kahlan (Legend of the Seeker) where I cannot help but smile whenever I see them, Victor/Sierra (Dollhouse) who just bring out the cuteness factor in such a bleak world, and the love/hate UST-filled relationship of Faith/Buffy (Buffy the Vampire Slayer).

Masterlist of days here.

It's the chemistry, it's the intensity in the way Castiel looked at Dean and really saw Dean, and the eyefucking they do. It's also because like you, I don't ship anyone on the show, not Wincest, not Dean/Jo and this came along and made me so deliriously happy.

This, definitely. The fact that Castiel has seen Dean, inside and out, can read him like an open book, has seen the absolute worst of him in Hell and yet still believes in him. He sees the goodness within Dean and trusts and puts his faith in, that's something even more intimate even from their first moment they met. And I like that this is something new and foreign to Dean, because nobody has ever read him like that, making him feel vulnerable. And I just, yeah. That's one of the main aspects of their relationship that I absolutely love. They've had that connection, the chemistry, from day one.

They make me so deliriously happy, as well. *draws hearts all around them*

Wow! How shocking! LOL Not!

However, I feel the same way you do. I have NEVER shipped a pairing as hardcore as I do Dean/Cas. My OTP for real!
Renée: Dean/Castiel. Personal space.rogueslayer452 on June 21st, 2010 07:11 pm (UTC)
I'm just that predictable, aren't I? ;p

Yep, precisely. There's just something that really clicked with how their characters interacted with each other, it's undeniable with all the chemistry and the bonding and everything they have with each other, that this is my OTP of the entire show. ♥

A trench coat wearing angel and a hunter walk into a bar...

I'm more interested in what happens after they walk out of there. Wink, wink; nudge, nudge. ;P
Renée: Dean/Castiel. Dominance.rogueslayer452 on June 21st, 2010 07:07 pm (UTC)
LOL! XD

So many possibilities with that scenario. You know it ends up with them getting all hot and sweaty either back at the motel room or in an alleyway, or the Impala. Preferably with wall!slamming and heavy groping involved along the way. ;D

Add that Jensen and Misha just have that chemistry between them IRL. You cannot fake that. :)

Don't watch SPN but *squees* at all of your runner ups.

*g* It's actually kind of hard because I have many ships that I love, some canonical and some not, but I kind of went for the ones that make me feel all squishy inside. Dean/Castiel being the current one right now, but everything else just, yeah. ♥

You're so predicable. XD

I agree with all of this!

Victor/Sierra (Dollhouse)

♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

Victor and Sierra were so cute on the show, because of the innocence and remembering of each other even after their memories had been wiped; true love cannot be broken. ♥

Ah, this. Exactly this. They're just... so connected. From the very beginning, even when they don't like each other, they have something that just clicks between them.

I have tried to objectively describe the relationship between Dean and Castiel to people. I pull off my slash glasses and my fandom hat and try to stick to just the facts, ma'am. The person always ends up replying with something about how they're couple-y, or how they sound totally gay for each other. BECAUSE THEY ARE. LOL.

lol! It really is true, of course. Because even with an objective eye one can definitely see the implications that there is something more, particularly on Castiel's end because it's so obvious with his affections for Dean since, you know, everything he's done has been for this one particular human. He rebelled against Heaven for Dean, for goodness sakes. I mean, there's no other way to explain it to people without them sensing the slash, and I think that's kinda funny and awesome. ;D

I love Dean and Castiel. :) I actually had a friend make me a new Friends Only banner with those two.
Renée: Dean/Castiel. BFFs.rogueslayer452 on June 22nd, 2010 09:26 pm (UTC)
Aren't they just adorable? *squishes them* I just love their entire dynamic on the show.
imisspadfoot21imisspadfoot21 on June 25th, 2010 05:13 pm (UTC)
I so agree with them being each other's first friend outside their families and how they balance each other out.

Victor/Sierra <3!
Renée: Dollhouse. Victor/Sierra.rogueslayer452 on June 25th, 2010 05:41 pm (UTC)
It really kind of fits, doesn't it? Which is why I value their relationship as I do, whether it be shippy or platonically, there's something special between Dean and Castiel that nobody can deny.

Moar Victor/Sierra luff! ♥
