Article Index

Dany's Dean birthday list and her follow-up Sam list were so fun, I asked her if I could do a Castiel one to go along because he may a nerd angel, but Castiel is also the hottest angel in the garrison. Ask anyone. Plus, there seems to be a lack of Castiel articles and things in the archives, and it's my new goal to help remedy that! (Yes, I might have developed a bit of a Thing for Castiel. Why do you ask?)

Oh, yes, and be careful not to drool all over your computer because water and electronics do not mix! All right, without further ado, my Top 10 Flavors of Castiel.
Honorable mention: Protective Castiel

vlcsnap 00315

Cass+holy-oil Molotov+ASSBUTT!= win. I love it when he gets protective over Sam and Dean because though they often take him for granted, Cass has their backs no matter what. Also, assbutt? Oh, he's trying so hard but just doesn't get it!
10. Sneaky Castiel

vlcsnap 00148

I love it when Cass tries to be sneaky, even though he just is not smooth at all. The point is that he tries, and it's adorable.
9. Happy Eating Castiel

Castiel almost never smiles, and he NEVER eats, so both of them happening at the same time is fantastic. I don't even care that it's Famine's fault. More of happy eating Cass, please.

I have to say, I have quite the Thing for Castiel/Misha lately myself. My favorite is badass Castiel and Confused Castiel. I think we should also see more Seductive Castiel a la Caged Heat when he was making out with Meg. Wonder what other things he learned from the Pizza Man....
# Mstngsali1 2011-02-16 22:18
You have my two faves in there,cell phone Cass and Scared Cass. Totally cute and totally hilarious! Thanks for this Arde. Cass is sometimes overlooked but never un-hot!
# sn_chills 2011-02-16 22:32
Maybe we can get some honorable mentions for your list. I for one nominate the hospital scene as well. We've gotten some hurt/Cas scenes a few times now but only once have we ever seen him sporting a hospital gown. I discovered a new kink after that episode.....

My other nomination also takes place in a hospital but this time its at Dean's side in "On the head of a Pin." It maybe my favorite Dean/Cas scene of all time. Cas was so solemn, so intense. And Dean was...well he broke my heart.

You mean this?
# Alice 2011-02-16 22:51
There's this too!

# Brynhild 2011-02-17 12:37
This is the WIN! Here we have Cas in hospital gown, looking confused when at the phone. It has ALL! :lol:
# Ardeospina 2011-02-20 21:24
Dear Chuck, how could I forget hospital Cass? Bad me! Thank you for rectifying my oversight, Alice!
# Yirabah 2011-02-17 02:12
You are right Arde there is a shortage of Castiel here. So thanks for this.

My favourite is the wings. Still think that that is the most awsome introduction of a character ever.

Oh and by the way. Supernatural is quicker than you think. Just saw some pics of upcoming ep. And let me tell you your wish has been granted
# CitizenKane2 2011-02-17 03:38
This is an interesting pictorial / read - I have to say I liked the wings, and wished they showed more of that. :)
# Junkerin 2011-02-17 03:58
I liked hospital Cass and Winged Cass.
Lovley done Arde!
# Jaspala 2011-02-17 06:07
Ah, Flamey, what a wonderful tribute to you favourite angel!
He'a a lovely, sweet, confused, badass bitchy protector when he chooses to be, and don't we love him for it?!

Thanks so much! Love, Jas

Thanks for doing this Ardeospina. I have been having an anti-Cas couple of weeks, so it was great to be reminded of all the great moments of Castiel over the last couple of years. I love Misha, but find I am still annoyed with Castiel’s holier-than-tho u (ha!) attitude in the first scene of Like a Virgin:

1. If Death is all about the natural order and he has chosen to re-ensoul Sam, does that mean that Sam’s re-ensouling is part of the natural order? If so, then how is it wrong? Or does Cas disagree with Death and think it was not natural to re-ensoul Sam and if so, how was Dean (as a bacterium) supposed to prevent Death from doing so? And if Cas was so convinced that it would be ‘killing’ Sam, why did he allow it to happen? He was ‘ambivalent†™, then absent.

One of the main reasons that motivated Dean to work on re-ensouling Sam was his bond with Sam. The same bond which enabled Sam to wrest control from Lucifer long enough to avert the Apocalypse (which Cas and his mates helped start) and save humankind.

2. Also, in that same scene where Castiel tells Dean that Sam’s soul felt like it was skinned alive and Dean should have killed Sam outright rather than do that, it made me wonder: when Castiel put Dean’s soul back into his body, what did Dean’s soul feel like? And although, granted, Dean was not with Lucifer in the Cage, he was still in Hell, and Castiel did nothing to prevent Dean’s memories of that time from coming back.

So I think Cas needs to take a leaf out of Sam’s (and Dean’s) book and reflect on what blame Cas himself carries in all of this.



But thanks again for the reminder of awesome Cas. I would add the following memorable Cas’s: Furious Cas (when he beats Dean up), Regretful Cas (when he is with Dean in the Beautiful Room), Stoner Cas (in the car when he is thanking Dean for welcoming him to the club and when he is telling Future Dean he likes Past Dean) and Mysterious Cas (when he sitting on the benches with Dean at that children’s playground in Season 4). Looking forward to more awesome Cas in the future!

Hi Ardeospina
Awwww Cas!
I loved them all, including the added Hospital pics.
My favourite however will always be Castiel vs Cellphones. All those cellphone moments always makes me smile.
# Julie 2011-02-17 12:12
Awww Arde ,
This was a labout of love for you I know.I do not know how anyone can resist our little nerdy angel( or his alter ego).
I love every `flavour` too but really have a weakness for his ongoing struggle with cell phones. He really should smile more often too as he has such a beautiful innocent smile,we need to see this more .
Also love him in scared and/or confused mode. Hell I just love him and always have from `The Entrance`. :-)
Thanks for doing this Ju
# BagginsDVM 2011-02-17 13:03
I think my favorite is still the introduction scene with his wings, but I love Castiel any way we can get him!
I agree, we do need more smiles, too!
# hornsNhalos 2011-02-17 19:45
Oh i loved scared Cas. Misha said that they took that shot about 4 times, with him cugging the beer, before the director laughed and said to do that again. all the times he was doing that the camera wasn't on him. poor misha! ^^
# nancyL 2011-02-19 16:50
I like BAMF Cas (except when he is beating on Dean).
I also like Drunk!Cas. 'I found a liquor store, and I drank it'. :lol:
# Ardeospina 2011-02-20 21:25
Thanks for all your kind comments, everyone! Good to know there's plenty of Cass lovers out there!
# soccerlaker07 2011-03-07 18:11
I love stoner Cas and Twitter Cas/Misha!!!!
# Zephra85 2011-03-07 20:15
Drunk Castiel was a winner for me, with his weakness against cell phones being a close second.
# Cathia 2011-03-10 06:21
Definitely the bad-ass Castiel!

remeber the scene when he was probing Sammy for his soul? His one move - removing his belt and putting it into Sam's mouth! C'mon, gals - how many had such distressed thoughts like I did?
