all the wank we had yesterday about Jensen and NJCon has really put me off watching the con because I can’t stop thinking about the reactions. i genuinely don’t blame either Jensen or the Mystery Girl for what happened, but I am a bit pissed off at that audience for making a huge, wank igniting,…
Agree with all of this except the ‘interesting question’ bit. It was not an interesting question. If she’d got to ask it, it would’ve caused more awkwardness because Dean is not bisexual. How do you expect Dean to have replied to that weird question!?? Jensen knows Dean more than anyone… has he EVER hinted or insinuated that Dean fancies men?? NO!
No more questions about Dean’s ‘bisexuality’… it doesn’t exist. It’s in your heads!!!! Whatever the writers throw in the script. (And they should really stop doing that!)
As far as what I took from it, the question was more where Jensen felt Dean’s character was going in the future, and how he feels about the speculation that Dean is bisexual. The question never explicitly said Dean was Bi, just what Jensen felt about the fandom’s speculation. I would have loved to know what he thinks about the topic, since we have never really heard from Jensen, and it shouldn’t be an awkward thing, I mean I’m not saying Dean is Bi, but when Misha gets asked about the relationship between Cas and Dean, no one goes all ape shit…
I just wanted to hear about Jensen’s plans for Dean as a character, kind of behind the scenes of what is written in the script, I think that would have been interesting :)
On a side note, I really love your url :)
Okay, but then Dean is not going down the ‘bisexual’ route. I think it’s pretty obvious, otherwise Jensen would be talking about it now and then. And Misha… he and writers are the problem. I’ll get jumped on the Misha and Cas stans for this, but I’ve said for ages he shouldn’t be encouraging Destiel questions when the other half of that pairing hates those questions, and doesn’t see his character as being into men. It then makes Jensen look really bad to some people when he DIScourages those questions.
And the other problem is the writers - I think what’s happening is that they are trying to please the shipping fans by throwing nods in to Destiel all the time. But Jensen is not on board with this (think about the times he’s said he’s asked to change a scene because it’s more like they’re a couple). Yet the writers throw in these nods, and the shippers go crazy thinking it’s real, it’s gonna happen. Then they ask Jensen about it and wonder why he isn’t interested and doesn’t want their questions!
I honestly feel so bad for Jensen!!!!
I don’t feel bad for anyone, and remember that other time, before season 6 someone asked Jensen if he was open to a SPN musical, to which he said no, then post season 6 and the writer change, he said that it was a possibility.
And personally, I think the writers are brilliant, but i also think they are true to the show and what it was originally intended to be, and you know, things change, people change, and Dean’s sexuality has NOTHING to do with Jensen’s, plus Jensen has played gay before see here.
I think, that when the time comes, we will see the character Dean turns out to be, and whatever that may be, I will respect the writers decision, and that of the actors, and I don’t think the show will be any worse if Dean turns out to be Bi, and I think others should respect that too.
And if you re watch the video, and read the direct explanation as linked to in the original post, you will see that the issue was NOT Jensen or the Mystery Girl, and that Jensen was not ‘uncomfortable’ with the question, he just didn’t know what it was over all the boo-ing. And I don’t think there has ever been any evidence to suggest that Jensen is uncomfortable with Destiel related questions, or questions as to the characterisation of Dean and the implications that may have on the dynamic between Dean and Cas.
On the whole, I disagree with you on a lot of your points, which is completely fine, neither of us are wrong, but it is just a matter of opinion, and I, in my little slic of fandom and the false reality I like to live in, do ship Destiel, because I think that that dynamic is really interesting and that there are a lot of opportunities that could sprout from that :) I am as yet undecided on whether or not I want it to become Canon, because I think that it could potentially take away from the fandom, idk, I like speculating, and if the canon did come about, I would be a tad sad as I think it would hugely restrict the possible angles of the ship.
This is a matter of opinion, and I do largely disagree with you thinking Jensen would be uncomfortable with this stuff, as there is no concrete evidence of that. There is a difference between his opinion of Destiel, and people asking him about who on the cast he would like to date…
and finally, I do not mean any offense by any of this. I completely respect your opinions, and hope you can do the same for me :)
Yes I respect your opinions, which have been presented in a calm and non-confrontational way. I don’t agree with them, but like you say that’s alright. As long as you’re not hating on Jensen, it’s all good. :)
