i have zero Gadreel feels.
Continuity Error #2
"He thinks you’re just a scared little boy who’s afraid to be on his own because daddy never loved him enough. and he’s right, isn’t he? Right to think that you are a coward? A sad, clingy, needy, pathetic bottom feeder who cannot even take care of himself. Who would rather drag everyone through the mud than be alone. Who would let everyone around him die!"
So I found this quote on tumblr and reading it the second time around it made me stop and think. At first it seems like he’s just trying to be a douche, to manipulate Dean into being angry enough to kill him.
But what he says to Dean isn’t true, nor is it something that particularly affected Dean. Not in the way Gadreel hoped, at least. It didn’t push him over the edge. It just made him a little ticked.Gadreel isn’t Metatron. He doesn’t have that talent of knowing exactly what to say to get the reaction he wants. So where did Gadreel get the idea that this would be the worst thing to say?
I think the first part was things he picked up from Sam’s memories, yes. But I think as it went on it changed into something else.
Because this is him.
He’s scared, he’s lonely, his Father abandoned him when he failed him. He’s sad, clingy, needy, pathetic. He can’t take care of himself. He would rather drag everyone through the mud, would rather slaughter dozens of his siblings, than be alone again.
The words he chooses are things that would hurt him.
And Dean knows it. Dean isn’t as affected as Gadreel wants him to be because Dean can see that he isn’t just being a dick for the sake of douchery. Dean can see that he’s desperate.
Is that guilt I see there in all that resignation?
Look at how shiny his eyes are. Look at the tears building up there. I dare you to tell me this isn’t personally affecting him.
Metatron is manipulative. Gadreel is just scared.
