Femme Free Will by lily-fox Femme Free Will by lily-fox
A friend requested some fem!Destiel, so I thought I’d fool around with Lady Dean and see how she turned out. Pretty much the same! Jensen Ackles has that weird marriage of being super duper masculine but also having the face of a Disney princess.

I don’t see Deanne being much different than Dean. Emotionally constipated, way too attached to her car, ready to die in a fire for her little sister, vigorously denying her feelings for Cas. Filling the void with cheeseburgers and slutty guys and push-ups and weapons maintenance. Maybe more Joan Jett on her stereo.

Lady Cas ended up being a lot more Jenny Novak than I expected; a tired working mom coming home after a long day to a husband who thinks she’s crazy. She just wants to see her daughter, have some dinner, and I would be really nice if this angel who’s been talking to her will just tell her what she’s supposed to do.

Castiel doesn’t want to hurt anyone. She’s got a job to do, and she’s going to do it, but she wasn’t expecting Deanne Winchester to be such a belligerent firecracker. And the more time she spends chasing her around and trying to keep the Winchesters out of trouble (and Hell), the more she likes them. Especially Deanne. She doesn’t get her, not yet, but she loves her.

And I added Lady Sam to round out the Team Free Will genderbend. I think Sam was the easiest one to femme up, which is cute because Padalecki, despite his beautiful girly hair, is the most masculine of the three of them. And I didn’t make her super feminine or anything, like she’s probably not wearing any makeup (maybe a pair of cute flats with bows, why not), but I think she’s really lovely while still looking like Padalecki’s twin sister.

Poor Sammy’s been through too much. She tries to deal, to just suck it up and live her woefully abnormal life with as much normalcy as possible, because if for ten second she thinks about all the family and friends she’s lost, all the pieces of herself that are missing or horrifically broken, she’ll just lose her shit and never come back.

Deanne is the reason she keeps it up. She doesn’t love the way Deanne keeps everything bottled up, but she admires her clear dedication to others and the fierceness that drives her. The sisters are both so full of love, but it’s Sammy who knows how to wear the weight.

I may not have watched much supernatural, and I know this has been in your gallery a while now, but I really really love this.

I think, of all the things I could gush about, from the way you characterize them to your style, there is one thing I can say with absolute confidence:

You got their eyes perfect. The chin-up softness in Sam's eyes, the wild energy in Dean's, to the edges of the world and back in Cas's.

It's really just fantastic. :heart:

Thank you so much. I'm still really proud of these after so long, and it was fun to mess with their gender. I feel like if the eyes look the same, it's a big success. They tell you who a person really is, yeah?

You are most very welcome :)
You should be proud of them because you really do grasp the personality so well. 
The eyes are such a big part of these three actors and their characters. They have a lot of moments where you just have to watch their faces and you can see a lot more about them than if they had just said a line.  I think you just get that. :)

I love how you can immediately tell the difference between Jimmy Novak, Castiel, God-complex!Cas and leviathan!Cas just by his expression. That's some fine actin'.

It really is!

It's one of my motivations to watch the show; to see them all play themselves and then completely different characters.
The subtle things from other actors and the way they act around each other too.
Plus the actors are sweet guys, so I like them anyway :)
