John Winchester to come back and for Cas to get pissed at him for the way he treated Dean when he was a kid.

Ugh, John hate in his tag. 

So they want Cas to be a hypocrite?

So basically they want Cas to get mad at John for keeping Dean (AND Sam, because Dean isn’t his only son) alive….?
They want Cas, who has done more damage to the boys, to yell at John for keeping the boys alive and teaching them how to survive. Do they forget that Cas has: Threatened to throw Dean back in Hell (for not following the orders Cas wants), beat up horribly not once but twice, is responsible for the apocalypse starting (because had he not let Sam out then Lilith wouldn’t have died and Lucifer wouldn’t have sprung free), he went and called the samulet worthless (when fuck you just cause you lost faith in your jackass father didn’t give you a right to ruin a brotherly bonding item), he has been the cause of every big major problem (purgatory opening, leviathans, Heaven civil war *twice*, Metatron, Mark of Cain ect.), he is directly responsible for the deaths of Ellen, Jo, and Bobby, he broke Sam’s wall, called him an abomination, basically called him broken and said his self apathy was a personality trait (when Sam has been the only one to stick up for Cas), he brought Sam back soulless (maybe not intentionally but he lied about it and never went to fix it), he deserted them both multiple times (and not just this season when Gadreel told Dean to lose him but in previous seasons), need I go on?

But no wait, you’re right, John is so obviously the one in the wrong I mean all John ever did was: Keep his boys alive, he didn’t want them following him directly bc of YED, he kept them out of view so Azazel wouldn’t get Sam, he taught them how to hunt to stay alive (remember Adam? He non-hunting son? Yea he died at 19 because he wasn’t taught like Sam and Dean were), he made sure they went to school (Dean dropped out of his own volition), even though he was mad about Sam and college (and I mean ever stop to think he was mad bc he couldn’t protect Sam anymore? Because hey Sam goes to college and becomes friends with a FUCKING DEMON, remember Brady, and virtually fucks up his life and then Jess ends up dead and he’s back into hunting) he still let him go and was proud (there is canon proof he visited Sam to check in and spoke about Sam getting into college for pre-law and how proud he was; seriously rewatch season 1), he provided for them. No seriously go back and watch them talk, Dean states they went to the Grand Canyon, and not just a stop look at the canyon Griswald style. No, John took them down the canyon on a donkey for the whole damn tour! (So this implies they had vacations and weren’t just hunting 24/7) Sam has toys growing up, which means John bought him toys (which aren’t necessities but little extra things you buy and John bought them for his boys), he left them with money and food to eat (Dean throws away spaghettios bc Sam doesn’t want them, you don’t do that if you’re lacking. Trust me, I’ve been there when all you have to eat is pbnj and ramen and you do not throw anything away bc you don’t know when you’ll have money for groceries. AND they said spaghettios and Lucky Charms, that’s name brand, you don’t buy name brand when you don’t have money). He left them with contacts to reach if something went wrong (Pastor Jim), he wrote about them constantly in his journal, he put them in sports they wanted (Sam and soccer), he is sentimental (Sam’s trophies and Dean’s sawed off shotgun, not to mention he have Baby to Dean, and as Swan Song points out there is an army man, Legos, and scratches in/on that vehicle and John didn’t fix it or get rid of them bc they’re memories of the boys growing up there), John who sold his soul and gave up the colt to save Dean’s life, John who didn’t break in Hell to bid his boys more time on the apocalypse front, but yea you’re right he was a shit dad
There are aspects you could say John was a neglectful parent (yes he did go on hunts frequently, but he didn’t drag along the boys on the super dangerous ones), but you can’t claim he is an abusive parent (trust me I would know). You claim John is an alcoholic but we never see him drink on camera, and we have Sam saying had their father actually drank more they’d be in worse shape. Headcanons do not change actual canon. It doesn’t work that way. Canon states John did care for his boys, yes he was an absentee parent at times but it never states he was abusive, that’d be headcanon of some twisted individuals.

And one last thing learn to tag properly. If a post is negative towards a character you don’t tag it with that character. People go to the John Winchester tag because they care about him. If you were to tag properly you’d have tagged “anti-John Winchester”


Also, Cas was raised to be a cold-blooded killer and spent millennia smiting people on orders and living as a soldier. Cas kills his own friends for expediency. Cas has probably done things like turning cities to salt and killing firstborns without flinching. He threatened to send Dean back to Hell simply for not showing him the “respect” he wanted; he once beat Dean half to death because he disagreed with Dean’s decision. Cas wouldn’t bat an eye at any of the stuff the haters IMAGINE John to have done, let alone his canon behavior. (And this is not me hating Cas. This is recognizing that Cas doesn’t live in the same world as his human friends.)

And if even Cas were to take issue with John’s parenting, remember this conversation in 9.10?:

DEAN: God, I was so damn stupid.

CASTIEL: You were stupid for the right reasons.

DEAN: Yeah, like that matters.

CASTIEL: It does. Sometimes that’s all that matters.

Castiel is the reigning king of trying to do the right thing for the people he loves but going about it in a way that backfires and hurts them. And he is not unsympathetic to others who make the same mistake.

Castiel would NOT be mad at John Winchester.



Boromir cuddling Hobbits because why not.

            (via goodshipophelia)

boromir’s character makes me so sad, because honestly, he was one of the most caring in the fellowship. he understood their mission and wanted to get it done as successfully as possible, but he wanted what was best for everyone with them as well. he felt the need to care for all the hobbits, not just frodo. and when he made a mistake, it destroyed him. he saw that he was weak and that he nearly ruined everything. and he died trying to make that right. boromir is the best.

The Legacy of Evil. He enjoys himself far too much if you ask me. ;) (Mark Gatiss in Sao Paolo, Brazil, March 2014) [x]

There King Finrod Felagund, hastening from the south, was cut off from his people and surrounded with small company in the Fen of Serech; and he would have been slain or taken, but Barahir came up with the bravest of his men and rescued him, and made a wall of spears about him and they cut their way out of the battle with great loss. Thus Felagund escaped, and returned to his deep fortress of Nargothrond; but he swore an oath of abiding friendship and aid in every need to Barahir and all his kin, and in token of his vow he gave to Barahir his ring.
