Will you remember this till your death? Don't try.

A blog where i dump my stuff or stuff that catches my eye. A lot of Supernatural, some Sherlock,some Hannibal, some RWBY, Dissidia, Pokemon, Rick Riordan stuff, and some architecture and cars and some wonders of science. And some stuff that make me laugh. Currently trying to tag 8000+ posts on my blog, so reblogging and posting stuff is put on hold.
Pleasing the fans, luckily, is - I hope this doesn’t sound bad, I should preface it by saying that I love my fans, but I do not care in the slightest about it. It’s my job not to care. If I start trying to please the fans, then it would backfire and I’d end up not pleasing the fans. It’s my job to take what is given to me and plug myself into it. Like fans plug themselves into Supernatural, and into that world, in my world I have to plug myself into Sam. There are a lot of actors that could play this character, Sam Winchester, I could name a thousand, and I only say thousands because I can think of thousands, but millions that can play this character. Taller, shorter, better looking, less good looking, blacker, whiter, the only thing I can bring to Sam that none of them can is my own experience. And that’s it. It’s not that I’m the best actor or that I look like Sam should look, it’s just whatever I can pull from or draw from my past. So if I start to ignore that and try to please the fans, then I completely destroy Sam Winchester…Even if it says he looks hot, he looks better than he used to, even that’s bad, because you get cocky or you get the false confidence or arrogance and you just start focusing on vanity, which I don’t want to do. My job is to flesh out Sam Winchester however I can, not to take from a billion people, but to play it my way, otherwise all these shows would be CGI.

I think its amazing that the writers of this show still keep twitters and other social media, and don’t just completely ignore the fandom, when all they get is hate. neglect, and downright abuse. 

And I find it nauseating to think of the reputation that the entire fandom gets because some of us can’t keep fanon and canon separate in our heads, and think that it is in any way appropriate to send messages like those seen on twitter to the people that make this show possible.

Asker snarkydean Asks:
Outright hate is definitely not okay but if the writers are doing some things wrong, which they are, then they should be called out so they can fix it, this wouldn't have had the potential to scare away sponsors and advertisers if the issues of the fandom had been heard and responded in the past. I mean, think about it, is it better to have people give you concric and then leave because you don't listen to them or take the concric and improve the show attracting even a bigger audience?

*publishing this, hope that’s okay*

Oh I absolutely agree that there are some things they need to be called out on. However, I do not think that Destiel is one of those things. It’s not canon. As much as everyone has different interpretations of their glances, lines, and the “humanity” thing, Destiel has never been made explicity canon. 

I don’t agree that most of the criticism given on twitter was “concric” at all. I think it was bashing and rude. It was in no way constructive. It was childish. And I don’t believe that making Destiel canon to please the part of the fandom that wants it to be is the best way to be attracting a larger audience. Personally, it’s my belief that a large part of the fandom would no longer watch the show if that sort of fanservicing took place.

But again, this is just my opinion.

scruffydemondean:

I completely agree! While there’s a lot I would like to see happen on the show, or things that could be improved upon, I know that the work they put into it is intense. I appreciate…
Asker snarkydean Asks:
Well there is so much you can do with 140 characters and although I agree that a certain ship being made canon might divide the fandom and whatnot, the subtext that is clearly queerbaiting hurts a lot of people in the audience and a majority of these people have left the show due to it. But questions about consent issues, sexism, plotholes and continuity errors should be taken seriously to develop the show bc obviously a lot of people are aware of them and think they are problems to be solved//

In my opinion, the subtext that some people think is canon Destiel or queerbaiting, I interpret completely differently. I see it as a brother loving his brother. Just in the way that Dean loves Sammy, he loves Cas. As brothers. I don’t see a romantic, homosexual subtext to their relationship. 

I understand that people interpret the subtext in different ways, but I don’t think that means that the writers are queerbaiting. I think that they are writing the relationship how they see it, and if someone is interpreting it in a way that they find offensive, its their choice to leave the show.

While I completely agree that issues with plot holes and continuity should be addressed, I don’t think its the fandom’s place to attack the writers of the show about Destiel or any other ship, canon or otherwise.

It boils down to the fact that the writers are just that, the writers. They write the show, the write the characters, and they are going to (hopefully) stay true to that. They are the reason that we are all here. The reason that Jared and Jensen and Misha and everyone else on that cast are here as well.

I hope they don’t change the characters for the sake of the fans. Because these are the characters I fell in love with, the way they are written. And I think it would be a shame to deface that. 

TL;DR
I don’t believe that the subtext of Dean and Cas’s relationship is sexual, I don’t believe that the writers are queerbaiting, I believe that the show is interpreted in many different ways and that can’t be helped. I think it’s wrong to attack the writers on twitter or other social media for the way they choose to writer their characters. And I hope that they don’t fanservice their writing in the future.
