30 Days of SPN - Day 17

Sweet mercy, make it stop!

Day 17 - Your favourite SPN friendship
Off the top of my head? Sam and Ash. Dean and Henrickson. Dean and Ronald. John and Bobby. John and Ellen. Ellen and Bobby. Sam and Ava. John and Deacon. Bobby and Pamela. Bobby and Rufus. Bobby’s friends with, like, everyone, and those’re all awesome. Dean Smith and Sam Wesson. Ash and Pamela. Rufus and Ellen. TheEnd!Chuck and TheEnd!Dean. And also TheEnd!Cas and TheEnd!Dean. Not to mention the plethora of minor, one-ep character friendships shown, which I am not even going to begin listing.

... I hate memes.

And yet I’m inexorably drawn to them.... It’s sooo ... beautiful....

Fine. Jared and Jensen. HA.

And yeah, that’s my final answer. Because it’s the easiest. I don’t think I need to explain myself further on that one.

Hm, I just realised I didn’t include any angels in any of those (TheEnd!Cas doesn’t count). Curious. (No demons either, although that’s rather more explicable. Although if I thought Crowley were actually friends with anyone, that would be in the running, I assure you.) The angels definitely brought another angle of pressure on the power dynamics of SPN, and that was really interesting, but clearly I subconsciously interpret friendship as a human relationship. I love Gabriel and the boys, but then Gabe went really native.

As for Castiel, I don’t know if I characterize his relationships with the rest of Team Free Will as “friendship” – same as I don’t characterize Bobby’s relationship with either of the boys as friendship. They’re more family, although that doesn’t always mean they’re closer. Cas took on a very “awkward step-brother” vibe to me. So. Yeah? I don’t know.

Oooh, that's a tough one. I don't think I could answer that, except maybe to say Ellen and anyone. Out of everyone in SPN, Ellen's definitely the one I'd most want to be friends with. You know she'd always have your back, she'd always tell you stuff straight to your face, and you'd just always be able to depend on her.

Interesting observation about friendship as a human thing. Although really, the demons were evil and the angels were dicks, so who would really want to be their friends? Even Cas, even as humanized as he got, he was still too weird and off-kilter to be anyone's friend.

It IS a tough one! But Ellen is teh awesomeness. I'd totally love to have her as a friend. Plus Bobby is so amazing, too, so I guess in-story I'd go with them – but then John is so much fun in the way he reacts to his friends ... argh. I just need to say J&J and leave it the hell alone.

Yeah, the more I think of it, the more human I think friendship is. I mean, Cas in The End was so human that it works fine. But anything under that, there's just not enough fellow-feeling to categorise it that way. It's an interesting relationship, but it's not friendship.

Sigh. At least I'm more than half-way.
