Castiel Novak is a highly respected and decorated Captain in the United States Army. Dean Winchester is a lowly Private with a massive crush on his commanding officer. Dean has resigned himself to a life of pining from afar, but when his company is deployed overseas and ambushed, Dean’s life changes forever. In the aftermath of the ambush, Dean walks through the rubble and finds only one survivor: Captain Novak—concussed and bleeding, but alive. Dean manages to get them both to a small, nearby village and focuses on nursing Castiel back to health. Once there, Dean is shocked to discover that his feelings aren’t nearly as unrequited as he thought.

I will only do reblogs, no likes. Since I have a smaller blog I don’t expect 198429849384901 notes, but I do promise to do it for EVERYONE who reblogs this. :)
If Cas doesn’t come back wearing something different besides that damned trench coat I am gonna scream.
Don’t get me wrong folks; I love that damned trench coat, and it gets me all excited like Dean when he sees it after Purgatory, but it has run it’s course and it has got to go. And if it doesn’t go, be best be wearing something else underneath it.
The thing is that the trench coat has, since the beginning, been the symbol of CASTIEL THE ANGEL. When Castiel is not being an “angel”, he doesn’t wear the trench coat. When it was Jimmy? No trench coat. Emmanuel? No trench coat. End!verse Cas? No trench coat. Crazy? Well, he was technically still an angel, but the scrubs underneath showed that he wasn’t all “there”, it wasn’t all “Cas” and it was a statement to his mental health and how much it had broken and deteriorated. So when he comes back out of Purgatory, all clean and “angelfied” by Naomi, HE HAS THE TRENCH COAT. And for once, it’s not a good thing.
I don’t know if there is a link to it, but Flutie specifically got me thinking about Cas’ wardrobe — or complete lack thereof. In the hospital, it signified many different things, but now he’s back and he has his old clothes. The trench coat and the business suit are meant to be like a “uniform”; this is what a soldier-of-the-Lord should wear, and Castiel does too. So he comes back from Purgatory and goes right back into his uniform get-up; not really that great of a sign, even if we all THINK it is. Like Dean, we all get excited; “Oh man, Cas is back, the angel is back, I’m so fucking happy to see him back”. But at what cost? 8x17 showed us that it wasn’t all hunky-dory having Castiel walking around, because he was being controlled by Heaven. His suit was still on and he was still stuck doing his duty.
But now, Castiel is FREE. He can do whatever the hell he wants. He doesn’t need a uniform because he’s no longer a soldier. He doesn’t have to wear his business suit at all; he can get a tux or a waist coat or a t-shirt at a Goodwill. He can be whatever he wants to be, if anything at all.
There’s also the practical point that everyone and their Aunt May is looking for Castiel right now, and that trench coat, let’s be honest, makes him stick out like a sore angelic thumb. It displaces him, how odd it is, that he wears it in 90 degree weather, or 20 degree weather. Trench coats are not the most “every day” of fashion attire. It’s not normal. Every angel and demon in this world and the next knows he’s the angel in the trench coat. If he’s going to hide effectively, he needs to leave it behind. Or, at the very least, not wear it in public.
So because of Cas’s newfound autonomy, and his now constant need to lay low, I will be MAJORLY upset if the writers don’t have Castiel wearing something… “different” when he comes back. He can still be an angel and damnit he can even have that stupid trench coat still, but they need something NEW. They need something fresh. And they need it to be something that symbolizes everything Cas is, was, and will become.
Yes, yes, a thousand times yes, I think I’m just going to barf over my keyboard an endless stream of yeses.
Personally, I’d prefer it if he kept the trench — as it has always been both his armor and his identifier, what sets him apart from all the rest; plus, it’s a nice callback to Jimmy — but ditched the business suit, because only hive mind creatures need the control and anonymity the suit provides.
There is not enough Psych or James Roday fanart. I’m on board with this. More please.
That time Dean coached a lesbian on how to flirt with a man.
