Looking at the Harvey Dent tag recently has been an... Interesting experience given that I've never watched Supernatural and know next to nothing about Misha Collins. But I've been having fun looking at the mishaposting and reading through the tags. After all, they're still posts about Harvey, which is good, and if people are happy and excited over seeing my guy, that that's exciting for me too! Even if it is because of the actor that plays him and not for the character himself.
But while I'm here... Dear Misha stans. I see your concerns of Harvey turning into a villain and how you guys keep saying that you can't imagine actually seeing Harvey as actually being evil because of your adoration for Misha. Well, I just want to say that you don't have anything to worry about. When Harvey Dent is written well, he's barely even a villain. Even after he becomes Two-Face, when he's written well, he really is a character that you like and want to see get better. He remains Bruce's best friend even after committing crimes and Bruce is always trying to help him because he's still likable and is more a victim of his circumstances than anything else. Harvey as a villain doesn't tend to particularly enjoy doing crimes a lot of the time. He does crimes to protect himself, because he feels that he needs to do them to survive, and above everything else, he does crimes because he has a compulsory NEED to. Often, he would like to stop doing them and get better. He doesn't like that he has to do it. But he HAS to do it because of the nature of his compulsions. He can't help himself. When he's written well, Harvey Dent is barely a villain and remains sympathetic to the audience. He's still capable of doing good, but he needs permission to do so from the coin. When he's written well, you should want Harvey to get help and to heal above everything else.
Harvey Dent is supposed to be a good man trying his best to do right by this city that he loves. He rises quickly, and people look up to him, hoping that he can save the people of this city from the darkness that consumes it. Which makes it all the more tragic when he eventually fails and succumbs to the darkness just like everyone else in Gotham.
So I suppose that you could say that Harvey is something of... A fallen angel...? (HAH! I know next to nothing about Supernatural.)
I just want people too remember this is how Destiel is described in Urban dictionary.
*The story of a man afraid of flying, and an angel afraid of falling, who somehow met in the middle. The man who denied the existence of angels came to love one. The angel who never felt began to feel. The man who was saved from an eternity in Hell by an angel. The angel who fell in every way imaginable for a man. The man, with a clear path to escape, decided instead to stay in Purgatory for a year, searching for his angel, praying to him every night. Begging. When he found him, he held him; he told him that he needed him, that he'd get him out, even if it killed them both. The angel rejected his faith, his family, his home, and everything he knew, so he could keep the man safe. They stay together despite fate, despite what they are, because they refuse to be pulled apart.
We're family. We need you. I need you.
I'm hunted, I rebelled, and I did it, all of it, for you.
"People aren't exaggerating when they call Destiel the greatest love story ever told."*
