There is no new episode right now, but here's a nip of what could happen after last week's episode.

Title: But Don't Give Yourself Away
Relationship: Sam/Dean
Time: 02:08
Spoilers: 923, Do You Believe in Miracles
Notes: Sometimes, when I've had a rough day or twenty, I want to create something, put something in the world that I made happen. Little act of subjectivity. This is one of those.

Summary: This is what could have happened right after the ending of Do You Believe in Miracles

So much to say, but first of all -
And some others.
but -
the song playing as Sam got Dean home (to his bed...) and went through the initial shock, is the same one that played as Dean kissed Cassie goodbye. Whether intentional or not - hm.

Both are unwanted goodbyes, Wincest, of course...
also - "You meet someone like her, doesn't it makes you wonder if it's worth it? Putting everything else on hold, doing what we do?"
Dean wouldn't stop to be with Cassie... how about - stop to be with Sam...?
Or, really - wouldn't change for Sam, but would change to hang out with Crowley?
That must be one of the things that hurt Dean about Ruby - Sam embraciung the life more than he ever did fo Dean, "for her"...
Would stopping, for Dean, have to mean dying? Has been sounding like perhaps not, but maybe...
Honestly, I miss those questions and themes, perhaps we'll get more of them now.

OMG, so many things happened to catch up about, *so* many.

But first, the new episode. The main thing I wanted to say )

Finally, I get to ship a moral, non-incestual pairing again.

Also - that means we don't need Cas anymore, yeah?
Also - you don't say to a Winchester "like a house on fire", Garth.

ETA: Winchesters! I ship Winchesters! Also Cas/Sam, but that's less relevant here. I meant - cause they're not brothers, San said.

I miss you, people of LJ <3

What if Dean's not telling Sam (he perhaps could have convinced him to do things Dean's way, he often does, like in Sacrifice), and not telling Cas, even, even though Cas was likely to be understanding - what if it's partially because Dean doesn't feel he deserves to have a happy ending?

I've been uncomfortable about about how the Batcave was too much to give the boys and still expect the series premise to remain stable and the boys to remain stable. Perhaps, being given something that big, the same way Sam retreated into himself and didn't quite take it (room etc), perhaps Dean needed it to be less good in order to be able to - IDK, exist in it?

He always said he wasn't gonna ever get an ending like that - gonna die young and that. And then he accepted it really well, enjoying it all - perhaps that was only while he didn't expect it to last? And as soon as he realized they did live there, and he had Sam, and they had a way in which Sam could perhaps enjoy the life while also not giving up his scholarly tendencies, and Cas was around, and even Kevin and Charlie were there a bit - family(ish) - perhaps that was simply too much - too foreign? And trouble, and having to worry about Sam and the supernatural, and even being horrible guilty - were at least something he knew how to deal with?

Probably, had he lost Sam, it would have been a whole lot like being with Lisa - and he couldn't go through that again... but still, he could have made it less of a problem, I believe.

And an unrelated Wincesty quote from 910 )

This part contains vague references to season 9 )

It's common these days, in more and more sorts of research, to talk about what's considered "normal", "universal", "not worth mentioning, because of course". Like someone being a white straight man. You know the drill. The common approach today (or, at least, around me) is to look at it as something that is specific, too, not universal. Like- being a man is specific, men aren't "general people". And in one way, most research in existence is about men, canonical everything is written mostly bu men and so forth, but in another way, there's not a lot of research about masculinity itself.

It's interesting to me to look at fic that's like that, in SPN, our "usual" fic. Or at least, your usual Sam/Dean or Sam & Dean fic, I don't read enough of the others to know, and I am curious to hear about this in other places in fandom, if you know and feel like saying.

I'd say your garden variety fic is "not season specific", but it takes place around season 3, minus the deal, give or take the angels and Sam's muscles. Motel rooms, following cases from town to town, diners, bringing each other coffee/take out in the morning (have they ever, ever done that in canon before last episode?), they know about possession and demons, if there are angels around, they're not central, nobody is crazy or suicidal or an alcoholic, and they don't know about fic. Dean's likely to hit on random (gorgeous) girls, Bobby's around and walking, The Trickster is around in either persona, Crowley probably isn't.

Even with fic that's less specific than that, it's often easy to tell around what season stories were written, the same way decades have indications in fashion and music. Vibe, characterizations, small things that became non-canon, the description of Sam's body and hair, And, of course, bigger things like each character's mental place, the way the audience is expected to think about their relationship, and how they're likely to act.

It's really interesting to me that "first time", while perhaps more central, is far from being obvious in this sort of fic. It might be cause it makes PWPs easier, but I don't think that's why. Perhaps it's because to many people, they sort of always had a relationship. Perhaps it because it's been so long, we get it, they're together, and as I took to yelling at the screen, watching SPN for the first time - there's only so much UST you can drive your audience crazy with before they gather outside the network offices with farm tools and take Show from you. Which is, of course, the low tech version of writing fic.

It seems like in seasons 8-9 )

"thousands of superpowered dicks touching down, and we got no idea where to start"

Where's my slightly inappropriate, possibly sexist or homophobic or incredibly slashy Dean response ? Are we done with those? :/
Or just:

You're gonna need a bigger mouth.

(ok, now I feel dirty)
