Anonymous asked: Hey you seem like you follow SPN really closely. And have spent a lot of time thinking about it and analyzing it. I'm curious about your opinion regarding destiel. Do you think writers purposely write it? Or is it the actors? Or is it all just a fluke and destiel fans are reading too much into the relationship? And more specifically, you talked about Jensen playing the April convo differently from "actual text"... what do you mean? ~ Curious Munchkin

Hoo boy, I could talk about this forever. Keep in mind though that this is all just my opinion.
Season 4: Initially I think there was just a lot of chemistry between the actors and tense situations for the characters that came across romantic despite not really being intended that way. Then I believe Cas got some of Anna’s storylines, right? So that added to it.
Seasons 5-7: I think some writers (Edlund as the prime example) deliberately put in subtext, while others didn’t so much. There were some no homos thrown in too. But I think the actors played up the romantic subtext.
Season 8: I think Carver decided to move toward canon - or at least the possibility of canon - and deliberately put in more of a romantic narrative.
Season 9: Most of the writers are now writing Dean/Cas as platonic. Lots of no homos thrown in by the writers. But the actors are still playing it as a romantic connection, I think.
Just my two cents, use your own discretion, etc. etc. :)
As for Jensen in the 9x09 conversation about April — You’ll notice that he says the things about her being “so hot” in a kind of ridiculous exaggerated way and is all the while looking at Cas out of the corner of his eye, head tilted back a bit. His body language looks like he’s teasing or even challenging Cas, trying to gauge his reaction. And then when he says “not every hook up is perfect” he slaps Cas on the back and leans in toward him and gives this really fond/flirty smile. Unlike in 9x03 at the bunker, this conversation did not come across as way to go dudebro high five get laid!! I think a lot of that might have been directing too — the way the camera focuses on their expressions and then Sam’s amused/ suspicious reaction face. But like I said, I don’t think the writers intended for their dialogue to be anything more than just a yeah hot chicks! sex!! gross conversation.
