#i love how dean’s not even the least bit cowed by the father of murder#like dean is so fuckin chill at cain’s house
Oh, HOLY SHITCAKES…
What, I was the only one who shouted “exactly!” at the screen when Mrs Tran said that?
That’s part of the communications disconnect I’ve been hammering away on. Because Sam is thinking that they’re brothers, and brothers don’t do that. But Dean’s mindset isn’t brother, no matter what he calls it. It’s PARENT.
John went to hell for Dean. Dean went to hell for Sam. Sam isn’t a parent, he can’t understand that level of love (and he shouldn’t). But because of that, he can’t understand how to tell Dean “it’s okay, I’m grown up now, you have to let go” in the way most teenagers learn how to deal with their parents - and Dean has no experience of disengaging from his own father, who held onto him even after death…. (and so did Bobby, for that matter).
I see people ragging on Dean for not realizing this and starting to treat Sam like his brother instead of his kid.
And I just need to say, that’s not gonna happen. You don’t just STOP being a parent. Dean raised that boy. He’ll always be Sam’s parent. Even if that isn’t what Sam wants. You can’t change that.
They need to come to the realization that the familial love they feel for each other is inherently different. And then figure out how to go about things from there.
Saving family business.

I’d like to point out though, that in the post from “Everybody Hates Hitler” Sam actually has his hands in his pockets. It just looks like he’s warming them over the corpse.
Well yeah in that picture they’re in his pockets, but in the scene he held them out and rubbed them together over the fire
also, it is definitely “driver picks the music, shotgun shuts his cakehole”
