Now, for those of you who aren’t familiar with the wonder that is Dean, lemme fill you in. Last April, when Brynn went away to RT and I stayed home, she very cleverly got me hooked on a show called Supernatural. She doled out discs to me like they were crack, and like a good little junkie, I wrote the prerequisite number of pages, got my Supernatural fix and went back to Brynn for a new disc. I crammed four seasons of Supernatural into four months and managed to write two and a half books while I was doing it. Dean is very good motivation. Hell, who am I kidding…so is Sam.
In a nutshell, Sam and Dean travel the US hunting ghosts, demons and a host of other Supernatural/urban legends. There’s a series long plot line about their family, good vs. evil, belonging…okay, I could go on, but I won’t. On to Dean Day! (And yes, for those of you who didn’t already know, I’m a giant nerd.)
My Dean’s Day list – in no particular order.
1.) Those eyes. Seriously – they’re all bedroom-y and full of painful secrets. Yeah, it’s that whole Dean-went-to-Hell wounded hero thing. Who doesn’t love that? Also, they’re green – my favorite color.
2.) Devotion to family – particularly Sam. Gotta love a guy who will do anything to protect the people he loves. And sometimes love means locking people up in a demon proof detox room.
3.) Those lips. Those kissable, bite-able lips. Le sigh…
4.) Love me some bad boy-ness. Never underestimate a guy that knows his way around weapons, rock salt, dead man’s blood and iron…and also handy Latin banishing/binding phrases.
5.) Copious use of sarcasm and the best one-liners. He always makes me laugh and it’s no secret, I love a man who can make me laugh.
6.) His emotional depth. Underneath that bad boy, who gives a fuck exterior is a guy who feels things deeply even though ninety percent of the time he’s trying to hide it. For some reason, I find that attractive. I’m not sure, but that may make me somewhat dysfunctional.
7.) He personifies the word hero. This is a guy that never gives up – ever. Even in the face of overwhelming odds…like say, a war between Heaven and Hell, he keeps fighting even though he’s emotionally and physically exhausted.
8.) I love his laugh and his sense of playfulness.
9.) Love that adorable smile.
10.) Yes, at the risk of objectifying, this guy is just hot. Typically not my type, but yeah, he totally does it for me.
