@jarchaeology this one is for you!
Jensen on Destiel
Okay! So we're always getting "Jensen doesn't like Destiel and said it wasn't real one time years ago" thrown in our faces by bitter no-lifes who can't just let other people enjoy things. So I thought it'd be fun to compile a list of all the times Jensen talked positively about Dean and Cas's relationship!
Right now it's just a list of things I remember from being in this fandom since 2011. Eventually I will add links to sources, video sources wherever possible. Watch this space!
(Also, if there's something that isn't referenced here, feel free to reblog or reply and I'll add it to this post! I want to grow this post as big as possible so we can always remind ourselves how little the one or two comments antis constantly reference actually matter, especially given how much of this comes after those comments were made, indicating Jensen has long since changed his mind.)
Straight from the Jackles Mouth
Jensen talking about Dean and Cas's relationship and how important it is to Dean.
Jensen talking about the confession scene, Castiel's goodbye, and he, Misha, and Dick improvising the handprint.
"Dean has no taste, clearly."
"What are you looking forward to tackling this season?" "Cas."
Jensen talking about he and Misha watching and sharing fan reactions to the confession.
Jensen talking about asking a crew member to film the confession on his phone so he can remember it as Jensen and not only as Dean.
Jensen talking about a lot of his reaction being cut out of the confession scene's final edit.
Talking about Dean and Cas's relationship transcending human understanding (yes I do count this, he was trying to do damage control after Jared's homophobic rant).
Saying Dean wasn't making any decisions in the confession scene, which emphasizes that Dean was not rejecting Cas by not being able to say anything back in the moment.
Saying after Cas was gone Dean was thinking "I didn't give him anything. I should have said "I love you, too."
Saying if s15 Dean (who was LITERALLY SO MAD AT CAS HE COULDN'T LOOK AT HIM for half the season) could give s4 Dean any single piece of advice, it'd be to keep the weird angel around because he'll be the best friend Dean's ever had.
Talking about Dean and Cas's reunion and how he hopes we'll get to see it someday. It would be a big hug and then "can we talk about that good-bye a little bit?"
"I live it" in reference to Destiel fanart.
Signing Destiel fanart, switching his pen to match Misha's where he'd already signed it.

thinking about insane canon shit that happened in supernatural and the number 1 “jesus fucking christ I can’t believe they did that” moment for me was them creating the fictional non biblical character colette, the love of cain’s life, so cas can be paralleled to her in dean’s trajectory with the mark
like cas is not dean’s colette, cas IS colette because colette doesn’t exist!!! at all!!! they made her up!!!
they chose not to add in a best friend for cain, instead the writers wrote in a lover they wrote in a lover who only ever asked cain to stop and then we get dean beating cas bloody and cas only ever asks dean to please just stop
I will never ever in a million years get over this
