Ugh, I can't even handle this week's SPN. Like, I am so torn on the whole Dean/Aaron scene. On the one hand, I'm like, GO SUPERNATURAL because I swear to God, Dean was flustered and not the kind of flustered he was back in S1/S2 whenever someone suggested he was homosexual (granted, that was usually in context of his brother, but still) but like he seriously couldn't focus when Aaron was staring at him in the bar - and not in a who-the-fuck-is-that-asshat but more a is-that-guy-staring-I-think-he's-staring-a
But on the other hand, it feels like queer baiting because they are never going to have Dean actually come out as bisexual and I get so bitter seeing "teases" of the subtext knowing they're too chicken shit to actually make it canon. Hell, there was that interview where Misha said they (TPTB and the cast) were "aware" of the large D/C group and of their queer fans so they like to put that in and play on it. That interview actually really made me upset because "playing" to it is not the same as doing it.
I seriously prefer the days when writers didn't interact with their fans because then I could see subtext and ship without feeling like I was being deliberately being baited. I feel the same way with Teen Wolf and how Jeff Davis will write things like "looked at some Sterek fan art today!" or "we really recognize the Sterek fans" and other bullshit because that's cool, that's great, but stop fucking getting our hopes up and then never making it come true. And I am not interested in telling the writers what they should do because if you had a plan and your character is 100% straight in your mind, that's just fine. Just because I see it and write fanfic about it doesn't mean I expect you to change your character (because as a writer I get characters sometimes don't want to change anymore than real people do). But when you specifically bait my interest in it to keep me engaged, it actually just upsets me.
So yeah. Torn on that whole aspect of the episode. (Aside from that scene, though, I fucking loved it. Aaron was the audience with the whole "what the fuck is this, what the fuck is that, you guys are psychopaths" and it was kind of brilliant. Well, and the constant "Nazi bastard!" bits got tedious.)
