what I’m saying is everyone on Supernatural should wear 200% less clothing
There should be an episode of Supernatural where the boys get cursed and they look naked to everyone. And we get a lot of shots with strategically placed objects. Like oh, I wonder what’s behind that bowl…
I almost choked
Cas isn’t full frontal, Misha was saying another character is full frontal and Cas doesn’t realize the situation at first
THat’s actually even more interesting…
WAIT A SEC
O FUCKING HELL NO
OH SWEET BABY CHUCK IN THE HEAVENS, LET US HAVE ONE NICE THING

Dean and Weapons: The First Blade9x16 "Blade Runners" / 9x21 "King of the Damned" /
9x22 "Stairway to Heaven" / 9x23 "Do You Believe in Miracles"
Let’s talk about Dean and the first blade and how Dean bit by bit lost himself a little more to the mark’s and blades’ powers until it was too late.
Let’s talk about how a lot of Dean’s “going dark”-arc has been foreshaowed in S8 and the whole purgatory storyline. From the shape of Dean’s purgatory blade being so very similar to the shape of the first blade to him embracing his monstrous side and torturing to drinking in killing with eyes wide open. All of it was re-visited and explored on a deeper level with Dean taking on the Mark of Cain and killing with the first blade. And while there are a lot of parallels in the general set up, there is one major difference: In purgatory Dean’s quest was driven by a wish to escape monsterland together with his best friend, a wish to go home. Yes, his journey was motivated by a wish to live.
In S9 it was almost the complete opposite. He took on the Mark of Cain as a punishment, as a means to an end, as a way to make up for what he did to Sam. It wasn’t a hero thing and it wasn’t motivated by a wish to be alive, but a longing for nothingness, for calm, for peace of mind, for it all to just be over. Yes, in a way it might have been a wish to die…
Let’s talk about how Dean accepted the mark without caring about the consequences, without caring about getting to know the whole story, just reading the label, not the ingredients. But it’s always about the fine print, isn’t it?
Let’s talk about how him and Sam went looking for the blade and how Dean was not only denied the choice to touch the blade once, but twice. Let’s talk about how it was Cuthbert Sinclair/Magnus, who pushed the blade into Dean’s hand, activating the mark in a new way, it’s poison crawling through Dean’s veins into his bloodstream like a drug. Providing a rush, a feeling that pushed everything else Dean was struggling with into the back of his head, drowning out the noise and making him crave that feeling of calm, of purpose, of being in control (while truly being anything but) every day a bit more to the point he became dependent on it, a slave to a damaging and dangerous addiction.
Let’s talk about all of that and then let’s talk about Crowley. The King of Hell, who was the other one to push the blade into Dean’s hands, erasing Dean’s choice to rather die than turn into what he never wanted to be (though of course Dean most probably would have woken up a demon without Crowley and the blade as well since the ~magic doesn’t come from the blade, but the mark - after all without the mark the blade is useless) and raise him a demon with eyes pitch black reflecting the darkness that has steadily been clawing its way out from the pit of Dean’s stomach for years.
How did the saying go again? Ah yeah right..
"The eyes are the mirror of the soul and reflect everything that seems to be hidden and like a mirror, they also reflect the person looking into them."
Well, and doesn’t that give an all new twist to Dean showing Sam his shiny black eyes asking "Which one of us is truly the monster" and saying “It’s all you”?
Dean most porbably would have woken up a demon without Crowley and the blade
I wonder though. I’m not saying he wouldn’t, but there does seem to be a direct connection as though the blade itself triggers the Mark to become more active each time it’s touched or used. I’m not sure what would have happened if Crowley hadn’t put the blade in his hand and it’s a moot point anyway. I wonder if part of what will be necessary to saving Dean includes somehow destroying the blade or rendering it powerless.
I like the idea however that demon!Dean is a personification of the transformation that started years ago perhaps when he got down off the rack and became Alastair’s apprentice. Remember how Dean said he enjoyed it? I wonder if we’ll get a glimpse of that.
Yes, I agree. There seems to be an important connection beteen the mark and the blade. It’s like they are drawing power from one another. Though I still think the ~larger power source and the thing that is changing Dean is the mark. Simply because of the myth we got surrounding it.
As for curing Dean or maybe rather getting him to a place to start embracing and allowing other emotions than those that are almost exclusively connected to feeling pleasure again: I think that might be impossible. Cain lived for thousands of years and couldn’t destroy (though of course this doesn’t mean they couldn’t find a way now) it but had to learn how to control his urges. And in a way that is what I personally would like to see most: The mark being a permanent thing but only then starting to disappear - and with it the desire to kill, etc - and fade the more Dean heals, the more balance he finds and the more in tune with himself he gets.
And hell yes, I hope we’ll get a few glimpses exploring and dating back to what happened when Dean was in hell and what he was close to becoming. There lies so much potential there. And it wouldn’t even have to be visual. Cas could share with Dam for example how far go e Dean was when he raised him or something like that. I am not too sure about them exploring these aspects, but I personally would be interested in it a lot.
The thing is that it looks as though Cain learned to control his urges by becoming a recluse, living apart from others mostly, and raising bees. Dean doesn’t have that luxury. He’s still a hunter. So, it will be interesting to see how they deal with that. I agree that he will probably keep the mark and have to learn how to control those urges. But I think that either the blade would need to be destroyed, which still would leave him with the mark to deal with, or he would need to separated from the blade. I fear that as long as he uses the blade, he won’t be able to pull himself back from the edge.
The other thing I’m concerned with is that Dean has a couple things he needs to confront about himself. One is his father’s legacy, what that’s done to him and his sense of self and how he relates to Sam, and the other is his time in hell. I hope that both of those get addressed, but I’m worried that one or the other will get short shrifted.
there’s this commercial on tv now for supernatural and they’re basically like “The Winchester brothers are back for more mysterious and dangerous adventures” and then
they fucking show this clip
and I just can’t even imagine what people that don’t watch supernatural will think of this show

Looking up Scottish mythological creatures and
Wulver: a werewolf in Shetland, that is said to have had the body of a man with a wolf’s head. It was reported to have left fish on the windowsills of poor families.
That is the nicest Werewolf legend I’ve ever heard of.
Now I wish I could draw because I’d love to draw this.
