+Groped by an Angel+ Dean lets Castiel’s grace out of the bottle
"You’re not the hero in this masterpiece, you’re the villain."
Do you know how much I love the fact that they touched on how every villain thinks they are the hero of their story?
Because I really, really love it. Talk to any bad guy and they will rationalize their choices, tell you that their goals are just. Every villain thinks they are a hero and the hero is their foil.
The fact that Cas has such complex emotions about his purpose in this world anyway…
He know’s he’s messed up BIG TIME in the past and everything he does, he does in an effort to atone for his mistakes. This must have struck him especially hard because, deep down, maybe Cas believes he is villainous? And he thinks he has to make a conscious effort to curb his villainous instincts/nature?
In contrast he views the Winchesters (especially Dean) as inherently good people who sometimes make poor choices but always with righteous intentions. Cas makes allowances for the people he loves (much like Dean) that he won’t afford himself.
And the parallels between Cas and Dean on this….I can’t even begin to articulate how intrigued I am.
