listen to me right now
dean did not suffer a horrible childhood for sam’s benefit
dean was not miserable while sam was happy
sam’s existence did not make dean’s childhood fractured in anyway
IN FACT THE ONLY REASON DEAN PROBABLY GREW UP A FUNCTIONING HUMAN WAS BECAUSE HE HAD THAT LITTLE DIMPLED BROTHER TO TAKE CARE OF AND MESS AROUND WITH AND FEED THE LUCKY CHARMS DEAN WAS NOT STARVING DEAN WAS NOT SACRIFICING HIS FUN FOR SAM
SAM WAS DEAN’S WHOLE WORLD AND MADE EVERYTHING BRIGHTER AND HAPPIER STOP TREATING SAM LIKE HE WAS A HINDRANCE TO DEAN’S GROWTH STOP IT RIGHT NOW
Why Sam! girls are very openly “bitter”: aka my entire relationship with Supernatural aka i’ll huff and i’ll puff and i’ll send u 2 hell aka season fuck you 2: electric boogaloo: A mini rant on Supernatural’s most under appreciated baby doll.
ANYWAY, I always see people attacking Sam girls for being whiny and bitter. “Sam’s arc is fine, why are you bitching”, they say. Considering the fact that a lot of the fandom doesn’t really have much of an interest in Sam beyond a secondary character, I think it’s safe to say that it’s REALLY hard to understand someone’s frustration if you aren’t invested.
* Please note: the purpose of this post isn’t to attack ur faves or make an insinuation that there is anything wrong with the ships and characters you like. I also like those characters. Please do not interpret my issues with Sam’s handling in comparison to other characters as a suggestion that those characters don’t deserve good arcs. The only character in SPN that this blogger even remotely hates is that 12 year old fat spaceman creeping on Dean in the parking lot. That kid was the worst.
