AND PEOPLE HATE THIS GUY.
let that sink in.
IM SO EMOTIONAL ABOUT THIS LIKE…. HE HAS SUCH A TERRIBLE LIFE BUT HE STILL TRIES TO FIND GOODNESS AND HOPE AND I JUST… I WANT TO BE LIKE SAM YA KNOW?
Castiel and his wings <3
I’d seen these gifs a few times before I finally watched Supernatural, so I was rather disappointed to see they didn’t have CG angel wings anywhere in the show (aside from shadows and the sound of wings)
"Turns out I have a thematic which is tight relationship between friends/brothers with unstated homoerotic subtexts…I’m just really interested in guys- straight guys- who have a tight friendship,they’re really fun to write, because they never say how they really feel, and there’s always a lot of punching each other and saying jokes, you can write emotional stuff because guys never say what’s emotional.” - Eric Kripke, the creator of Supernatural and Revolution
i am reblogging my own post to have Eric’s words on out there, but also to add a bit of commentary.
Every fight you see in this set is during an extreme situation or the result of the aftermath of an extreme situation. These fights were part of a larger dialog, and to ignore the reasons behind each one of these hits instead of looking at the boarder picture, makes Sam more of a victim, it doesn’t help him. You make his seem like a person that isn’t capable of taking care of himself and paint the second best hunter in the world as a child.
Eric Kripke is a Gen Xer writer and creator of this show, a man that grew up in Toledo Ohio, during the 70’s and 80’s, who didn’t grow up in an everyone gets a trophy world, or play dates, or stranger danger.
Sam and Dean are a love letter to rough and tumble latch key kids, who grew up and still do have fist fights in their 30’s and 40’s. Eric wrote Sam and Dean as men who could take hits and not be cowered by them, even when they are hitting each other.
You might not like this brand of machismo but the fact remains that these fights were written for a reason and not as some evidence for an afternoon special on brotherly abuse.
Except… they’re clearly intended as punitive. Sam doesn’t return fire. They’re not fights, they’re assaults. In a fight one person attacks and another defends. Sam isn’t defending himself here, he’s taking his punishment.
