Destiel becoming canon: Opinion =/= Fact

Is Destiel becoming canon improbable? Yes, I can see where people are coming from with this. But is it a fact Destiel will never become canon? No, it isn’t. It’s an opinion that definitely has foundation, but it’s still an opinion. Claiming this to be a fact is wrong. It’s also dismissing the fact that we have a new showrunner and that we don’t know what will be his approach on the show. We can speculate as much as we want, but we don’t know for sure.

What we know is:

- He wrote Free to Be Gay Lovers You and Me (no need for elaboration with this one, right?);

- He wrote Point of No Return (Dean making sexual innuendos about him and Cas; “I gave up everything for you”);

- He wrote Changing Channels (the one where Dean worries about Cas the whole episode and threatens an archangel because of him; and don’t forget this is the episode with Dean blushing like a schoolgirl because of Dr. Sexy);

- He also wrote The Rapture (beautiful dream sequence with them and a great episode in general) and Death Takes a Holiday (“You made an exception for me”; “You’re different”);

- He said their relationship will be explored in Purgatory and that no one is more of a fan of Dean and Cas than he is;

- When Destiel was mentioned at ComicCon he didn’t say anything negative about it, just played along and exchanged looks with Edlund.

I know having hope is hard at this point, but I think it’s the best situation we, as Destiel shippers, have ever been in. And, even if they never become canon, nothing changes everything they went through together. Don’t belittle their relationship acting like if being canon is all that matters.

    It would be nice if it became canon, but arguing that unless something happens explicitly on screen it never happens is...
