The Season 8 premiere is nearing and (HOLY SHIT, THAT PROMO ALMOST KILLED ME!) despite all the anxiousness, I'm basically bored out of my mind. And when I'm bored and not in the mood to be productive, I do weird shit.

I saw this on Tumblr and thought, what the hell, I have a blog so I might as well use it as I please. Therefore, brace yourself for a 30 Days of Supernatural challenge that is absolutely pointless and that I'm going to do, anyway! Starting right now.

Day 01: My favourite character

Dean Winchester. Duh. And I don't mean that in a 'what twisted soul would like anyone more than Dean?' way, but in a 'if you've met me, you surely must have known,' way. I'm a Dean!girl all the way, down to the very core of my dark, fannish heart. 

It's really weird, though, because Dean, essentially, embodies everything I normally hate - he's a jerk, a sexistic pig, he's so full of himself that it's a miracle he doesn't take off and fly into space, he's obnoxious and thinks he's funny when he really really isn't and occasionally, he's more than a little homophobic; and so on and on and on... If I ever met him, or a guy like him, I'd either judge him silently, slap him or run away from him.

And yet, I love Dean. Not because he's got this one redeeming quality, or because he's pretty, or because I feel sorry for the guy. I love Dean because I believe that his good qualities exceed his bad ones, by far. He's determined, loyal to a fault, loves with everything he has and puts even total strangers first. He dedicated his whole life to saving people, hunting things, for crying out loud. He's The Righteous Man as much as he is self-righteous and most importantly, he's so human (despite what people tell him!) that just looking at his suffering makes me want to bawl my eyes out. 

He's flawed and that makes him such an outstanding character in my eyes. He's not flat; he's not just good or just bad - he saves people 'for a living' without any acknowledgment, without getting paid or thanked. But on the other hand, he broke and tortured in Hell in order to end his own suffering. And then he condemned himself for it for the rest of eternity, it seems.

To me, Dean's quiet, subtle inner struggle between being good and being evil, between doing what's right and what is easy, is much more eloquent than Sam's whole demon-blood story arc. 

Also, he's reaaally pretty. 

I'm sure I should not be this attached to a fictional character. Help!
