And some Supernatural fan was like “OMG YOU WIN THIS ROUND”
But really, guys…
Neither of you “win”.
Because neither of the shows have ANY Queer main characters.
And that’s a huge problem.
You know what I’m saying? I’m saying this is bullshit. If a sixteen year old Dean Winchester came face to face with a werewolf like that, he wouldn’t be alive. The werewolf wouldn’t grab him from the forearms. He or she would bite him and claw him till he was dead or too weak to move.
So yeah, this isn’t a werewolf. That’s just John.
Friendly reminder that Dean didn’t ever personally encounter a werewolf until Season 2, 11 years after this episode.
Oh hi there. Just wanted to show you guys something:
And once again, this gif is way too accurate:
Adam Glass also thought Sam was 9 when Dean was 16 and put in that Dean and John told Sam they were going on a rugaru hunt when Dean had never even heard of a rugaru until 4x04, Metamorphosis. They literally had no idea what it was because John had never hunted one. They had to learn from another hunter how to kill it.
Keeping in mind that Adam is also the person who made Angel Feathers an instrumental part of a spell when angels aren’t corporeal beings, they’re made of light and do not canonly have physical feathers. AND over complicated and completely contradicted what was already known about John’s father in 4x03 (basically Adam for sure skipped the beginning of season 4 because Cas explains the thing about angel lore during that time as well) is that he was very much alive and a mechanic. Now us, as a fandom have tried to flip it around to mean he was talking about his mother’s father and that’s why they moved to Lawrence, they were moving back. But let’s be honest with ourselves. They didn’t think about what was already canon. Adam doesn’t really consider what came before him he does his own thing, sometimes
a lot of the timeat the contradiction of basic canon fact.
Adam’s fucking haughty response saying “they work weeks on all this information to make sure it’s right” I fucking hope not cause I haven’t seen either of those episodes in months and that occured to me off the top of my head and I know for a fact it doesn’t take weeks to minus 4 from 16 and get 12 (or 11 if the timeline is before May) Even if they changed his age from 14, he should still fucking remember they changed the age. I just roll my eyes so hard at Adam Glass 95% of the time. Continuity issues are such a pet peeve of mine.
Wow… I don’t know what to say.
Not to mention, if Dean had been attacked by a werewolf, wouldn’t he have claw/bite marks on his arms instead of bruises? Adam Glass’s answer is all kinds of whack-sauce.
this is the post that convinced me to stop watching after season 5. Fuck the Supernatural writers for real.
like as a long time Supernatural fan, I’ve come to terms with the fact that Supernatural (like most tv shows) does not care about diverse representation, and as a fan, I choose to tune in and do what I can with fanworks to try and broaden the canon’s horizons through fanon. I don’t have high expectations of diversity in spn’s canon, but I still think it could do at least a little better and that it’s not too much to ask the writers to be a little more inclusive.
but when Adam Glass has the nerve to try and fucking say that spn has “great representation of minorities in all facets of the show,” that just fucking grinds my gears so much
sit the fuck down, Adam - you wanna talk about facts? Talk to me about how out of over thirty women with recurring roles, only six are still alive and how every other woman died a horrifically violent death (and in many cases, was never mentioned again) and how the writers never seem to talk about bringing them back from the dead or to have cute little cameos while white men get that privilege again and again and again
Talk to me about how it took until season seven and almost 150 episodes to have recurring, living POC and queer characters? Why is it that every other queer character before Charlie was either dead, a joke, or evil? Talk to me about how the writers vilified Gordon for the way that he dealt with the trauma that supernatural violence wrought in his home at a young age. Talk to me about who honestly, truly gets access to the narrative and who doesn’t. Take a good, hard look at the show that you write for, and then try to fucking tell me that you’re representing minorities on all facets of your show
shut the fuck up Adam, why don’t you get the fucking facts before getting on twitter and making condescending posts at your loyal fans who dare to ask that the writers do a little better
