This is the most beautifully crafted Dean/Castiel video I have ever had the privilege to see.
If you do not click play, you are missing out on something remarkably lovely.
If you do not click it, go right on ahead.
But you really are missing out on something that captures the evolution of both Dean and Castiel’s relationship.
And it is truly magnificent, yet terribly heartbreaking.
Supernatural season 9 gag reel
A Conversation with the cast of Supernatural
Osric Chau asking a question at the Supernatural Comic Con panel.
Reasons I love this video:
The sultry smiles they give each other.
The looks in their eyes.
The complete disregard for personal space.
The way Jensen’s hand moves slowly over his shoulder (and close to his neck).
Jensen calling him “cute.”
The way this totally proves they’re banging each other (at least in my head)
I recommend this video to all Star Trek fans
Probably the best and most accessible explanation of the male gaze that I’ve come across.
Male gaze= shots of women in a way that reinforces how straight males see sex objects
And that even though filmmakers are starting to include shots of men that objectify them—for the benefit of female/gay men—-that typical inclusion is significantly different than the way the male gaze is shot.
—the shirtless man is usually shot from farther away (not up close and intimate)
—the shot is static—not moving (panning) over the shirtless man
—that the man’s whole body is showing (not fragmented into parts)
—and the fact that the shot usually reinforces the man’s body strength, (which reinforces positive stereotypes for straight males as well)
And the fact that absolutely NONE of these apply to this shot of Cas!!
It’s up close—-the camera pans slowly over him—Cas is fragmented—and Cas is not showing any typical musculature or body strength that straight males would find reinforcing.
So completely coincidentally, SPN shot Cas in this scene according to all the conventions of introducing a female love interest….and defied all those same conventions for tossing in a male sop to female gaze.
He’s just a nerdy looking dude in a coat and suit that is being shot as if he is the object of desire for the supposedly straight male who’s staring at him like he’s the last cookie on the plate.
And Dean’s hungry.
One of the best blooper/deleted scenes in the history of
mantime. I salute you, Jensen Ackles, for keeping a straight face and you, Jared Padalecki for being so flexible.
I HAVE BEEN LOOKING FOR THIS FOR MONTHS
I NEED EVERY DELETED SCENE OF THIS SHOW THAT HAS EVER BEEN MADE
WHY WOULD THEY DELETE THIS?
oh god this show
*TURN ON ANNOTATIONS* or don’t, i’m not the boss of you
Season 9 was rough, but maybe we can all play make believe together?
THESE VIDEOS ARE THE BEST THING EVER, AND THE ANNOTATIONS ARE PERFECT ASDFKSLDKJFA;
The greatest proposal I’ve ever laid my eyes on.
OH MY GOOD LORD. THIS IS THE BEST THING EVER *TEARS*
In light of the whole ‘deancas isn’t happening’ let me show you a little something: Jensen talking about the scene where Dean gives the coat back to Cas.
He’s so embarrassed by the entire thing (even though it was in the script, notice the little details he talks about) that it makes me think the cast and the writers have a whole different idea as to where this relationship is going.
Bra Fitting 101. This changed my life
Ladies of Tumblr, do yourself a huge favor and watch this video. Your lives will change for the better.
