#so this is what i was talking about - dean’s being hard with him sure #but that is HEARTBREAK and FRUSTRATION and all the emotional constipation of this man right on his face#bundled up into one ”why won’t you just fight with us again” #”why won’t you just be with ME again” #in 7.17 they were on the road to fixing it and to dean that’s just… gone now #and he feels alone again - like when cas was never even there - and it upsets him and bewilders him #and he takes it out on the stranger in his friend’s trenchcoat
But Cas is there. Dean just has to dig deeper. Cas has a more clearer perspective than ever before. If Dean mans up and grows a pair of his own and says he’s sorry too then Cas will be right there along side him again. Forgiveness is a two way street. Cas can’t do much more without it. When they can trust him again is when he’ll help.
