and there's been drinking.
I've had many thinky thoughts about the show lately. Not in the terms of will Dean experience a complete melt down before the end of the season or is Sam coping as well as he seems etc. But more...I know
this show is flawed (there are problematic story arcs and character arcs and plot holes etc etc and yet I am STILL totally in love and invested in it.
I've just happened upon something transfixeddream
stated, nearly a year ago:Sam is stupid. Dean is stupid. They're both fucking stupid, but it's okay because they're pretty.
That's it in a goddamn nutshell.
Sam's flawed. Dean's flawed But they're so goddamn fucking gorgeous it doesn't matter. In fact, it's BECAUSE they are stupid, flawed and gorgeous that it matters. Always has. Probably always will.
I heard recently that Jensen answered the question "why did Dean kill Amy?" with "because he's an asshole" at a con. I really love that. They are not only stupid and flawed but they are also assholes. (Of course! How could they have survived without being all those things?!).
They are also heroes. Who happen to have beautiful eyes and freckles and pecs and hair and.. *thud*). They are also brothers who love and adore each other (which can be taken as gen or so freakin' easily as soooo much more).
Oh Show. What the hell is it about you that let's me forgive all your inconsistencies? (answer.. eps like Slash Fiction and Hello Cruel World maybe..) Evidence of the pretty!
