1. Them: But would YOU want to have sex with your own brother?
Me: Do I look like a hunter recovering from PTSD and alcoholism who only trusts about four people, two of which are dead, who has been trained to always put his brother before anything else in the world and who has literally been to hell and heaven and everything else in between and back with only the thought of his brother to get him through? No? Okay then, no, I don’t. But Dean does.
2. Them: They can be and therefore should be with other people!
Me: Yes, it’s possible they can be with other people. But let’s look at this from a realistic angle.
You are a girl who meets a nice guy, and you start to date. He’s charming, funny, gentlemanly, and downright sexy. He’s secretive about his past and seems to have no family, but you can deal. But then he has a soulmate, whom he claims he has only platonic feeling for, but whom he has held long eye contact with and has long hugs with. This soulmate knows him better than you can ever hope to, knows what he needs before he opens his mouth. This soulmate also gets confused for his lover wherever they go. As much as you love that guy, that will be a hard relationship. Despite everyone’s best efforts, someone will get jealous, most likely you. It’s no one’s fault, but really, who can be expected to graciously handle that for the rest of their life?
3. Them: But what about Cas?!
Me: But WHAT about Cas? He has a lot of chemistry with Dean, just like Sam does, so…either way, someone is gonna have the chemistry, but not have the relationship. If it’s Cas, then what about Sam? And if it’s Sam, then, indeed, what ABOUT Cas? Surely you’ve had chemistry with people you’ve never dated, maybe even with other people while you dated another person, but you where never serious about pursuing that relationship in that way (or at least, I hope not!)
4. Them: It’ll never be canon!
Me: So? What the fuck does it matter? This is fanfiction, not fiction-I’m-making-up-now-in-hopes-that-it-will-become-canon. I do what I want, and you do what you want, and the writer’s do what they want.
5. Them: It would be out of character.
Me: Ha. Hahahaha. Look at the finale of season 8. Just look at it. Listen to it. Comprehend Dean’s words. Then take two pills and call me in the morning, you know, when you have grown the regulation amount of sense.
