confused, worried

In which a Castiel fangirl insists neither Dean nor Balthazar is head over heels for Castiel.

So I've been trying to read Balthazar/Castiel fics and, alas, find myself unable to enjoy any of them.

I'm a Castiel fangirl, but a lot of the stuff is really over the top, even for me. Letting the universe (and other characters) bending over itself for your favorite character is a form of Mary Sueism, because the stuff becomes so OOC (though I am aware that I'm talking about Supernatural) that they might as well be considered OCs in familiar skins anyway.

Dean is not fervently in love with Castiel. His life is too fucked up at the moment (admittedly it has been a very long moment) for him to be fervently in love with anyone. I like Dean Winchester for a lot of things, but his romantic life is fucked up and he is a mess in that respect. Castiel's angel mojo isn't a complete magic cure for that, no matter what most D/C fics out there seem to imply.

And Balthazar is not cuddly nor saccharine. He's unexpectedly sweet at times, but he is not about to make a tender love confession to Cas. No, really, he is not.

But then again, this is Supernatural, some morbid crossover between a soap opera and a grand fandom experiment. It defies logic in every sense of the word. (Not that fandom has ever been about logic.)

Still I ask myself, why do I want to write Balthazar + Castiel gen kid!fics? Why? I blame Sebastian and Misha.

Hahaha, I guess that you do not approve of this post, judging from both the icon and the pics? :P

Whoa, I think I just found out why I'm not into D/C

Because it always seem so one-sided.

Re: Whoa, I think I just found out why I'm not into D/C

One-sided on which side? :P

Personally I've had trouble enjoying most D/C fics because 1) I am really, really not into whumping and 2) I can't develop a head canon of how they ended up together. As a Cas fangirl, I can't stand watching him just pining over oblivious!Dean. I suspect that Balthazar/Castiel, as a pairing, attracts Cas fangirls like me (YMMV, obviously) because we finally discovered this one guy who is, I dunno, nice to Cas in a manner of speaking?

I can't stand watching him just pining over oblivious!Dean.

Me, neither.

The Winchesters are way too far gone for each other, I don't think they have the ability to love anyone else. Heck, Dean's relationship with Lisa proves that. I mean he obviously likes her, but at the same time he's just coping/settling.

And DUDE I can totally see Balthazar/Castiel.
