Oh my sweet summer child.
- Castiel is an angel. HE DOESN’T HAVE A GENDER. He is a celestial wave length of intent that happened to be placed into a male vessel. Considering the fact that all angels are genderless, they don’t conform to human standards of sexuality.
- But in regards to sexuality: direct quote from Cas: “I am utterly indifferent to sexual orientation” in case you were wondering how this particular angel feels about that.
- Don’t take this to mean that angels are asexual. Look at Balthazar and Gabriel. Both were very open about the fact that they enjoyed sex, with humans. And it’s more than possible that Balthazar had sex with men and women, considering he was once pulled a way from a, “What’s french for a 12-way?” That would be a lot of women for one dick.
- I personally don’t believe Dean is 100% straight. His siren, a creature that is almost exclusively a woman in lore/experience, took a man’s form, because that’s exactly what Dean wanted. Dean, who is supposedly “super macho and straight” and “wants an apple pie life” and “loves strippers” wanted a guy. The siren could have easily been a woman who was into sports and cars. But it was a man. Come on now.
- I think that it’s possible for Dean to be bisexual. I feel like if he was, Dean would have stamped down those feelings growing up, because he would have felt like it was a disappointment to his father. (Whether John would have been accepting or not, which I don’t really thing he would have been, but that’s another rant) But it would kind of make sense, considering Dean’s sexuality has become a bit more ‘fluid’ since seasons one/two, when Dean was very much in the ‘good little soldier’ mindset.
- When going back in time, Dean checked out the men in uniform over the women walking by. When going into the brothel looking for Clif, he had no qualms about lifting up the sheet to check for the birthmark, and made no comment besides, “Well you look great” He makes references to Bert/Ernie being gay when talking about Cas’ virginity. He made reference drawing a parallel between the two of them and Thelma/Louise.
- Obviously, Dean likes women, and likes sleeping with them. But he’s never had a real connection with them. The closest he got was Cassie and Lisa. And don’t get me wrong, I liked Lisa. I do not have any hate for her like some of the fandom. She helped Dean from going off the deep end the year Sam was gone. But Dean was falling into someone else’s life, and was never 100% open with himself/his life/his past, when he really could have been. Lisa was a tough chick. She could have handled it. She INVITED him to share that stuff, but Dean just couldn’t do it.
- Castiel literally knows every part of Dean. He knows the things he did in Hell. He knows his fears/secrets. He rebuilt Dean’s body and placed his soul back in it. He rescued Dean from the pits of Hell. He’s the only being on Earth that knows every part of Dean and loves him. Whether you want to claim it as romantic or not, Cas loves Dean. (edit: yes there is no doubt in my mind that Sam does/would love Dean no matter what, I’m just saying Cas knows every specific detail of the horrible things Dean has done)
- If Castiel was in a female vessel, the entire world would be crying out of their deep love. Everyone would be on the edge of their seat waiting for them to finally get together. It is canon that Dean and Cas are best friends. If Cas was played by an actress, EVERYONE would be like, “Oh okay, they’re ‘friends’ but obviously so much more. When will they finally get together??”
- Just because someone identifies as straight, it doesn’t make it impossible for them to fall in love/be sexually attracted to someone of the same sex. I know a couple people who identify as straight who happen to be in a relationship with someone of the same sex. Sexuality is pretty fluid in my eyes.
- I’m just going to leave this quote from Kinsey (if you don’t know who that is, look up the Kinsey scale) “Males do not represent two discrete populations, heterosexual and homosexual. The world is not to be divided into sheep and goats…The living world is a continuum in each and every one of its aspects.”
- “Blow me Cas”
- “Cas, not for nothing, but the last person who looked at me like that…I got laid”
- “I’d rather have you, cursed or not.”
So, those are all reasons I would like to see Cas and Dean together. OH! But the most important one, and the only one I really need to justify it (because it’s a ship, and you can pretty much ship anything you want without having to have a really thought out explanation because it’s fiction and shipping is fun):
- I like it when their dicks touch.

I LOVE HOW WHEN DEAN DECIDES HE’S READY TO DIE, CAS DECIDES THAT HE’S READY AS WELL.
the sort-of-sequel to this mix that i made for castiel. same thing as before, i’m a huge fan of scores and instrumental music, and seeing as how dean/cas is pretty much my otp of otps, i wanted to try and come up with a mix for the pairing made of just that! they’re listed in the order i like to listen to them, i guess slightly a story (for me, at least and surprise! - the ending is sad). i know different songs will pull different feelings from everyone, but these are a group of songs that, when i listen to them, i just feel destiel. interpret them as you like, and enjoy! also thank you vee for contributing ilu<3♪ immortality - city of the fallen
