Go north, angel by lily-fox Go north, angel by lily-fox
Kit got me watching Supernatural, and it's awfully nice when she and I geek out over the same thing at the same time. We're both pretty smitten with Castiel, our rumpled hero angel, and I promised her some Castiel fanart. I meant to do something cute and simple, maybe with popsicles, but it got all serious, so. Here's the scrapped sketch. It's a first try. It's not great. It's a start.

And now I finally have a REASON to throw a halo on the person I'm drawing! You better believe I'm going to abuse the privilege.

Am I a social pariah for not knowing who this is?

Is this a new show that I've never heard of? It happens a lot, I wouldn't be surprised.

Ah, no big deal. Supernatural's not like something everybody's heard of. But it IS fun, and if you like scary/cheesy/funny things, you might dig it!

Dude! I Love It! :iconsupertighthugplz: I already love Cas but this is great. I adore the back ground and you should SO abuse that right!

I have to ask. which seasons have you watched? if you don't mind me fangirling on you.

I don't mind at all! I've watched up through Season 4, and I'm on like the third or fourth episode of 5. But I actually love spoilers, so you can say whatever you like. :D

Well, sn 8 is about to come out I'm pretty sure and I can't wait but I just wanted to make sure that you weren't like so many others who start like half way through and miss the best parts.

What is your favorite episode and favorite season so far?
Reply
:iconlily-fox:
lily-fox Featured By Owner Jul 30, 2012
Favorite season is 4 for sure, not only because of the advent of Castiel, but because it's a better balance of scary/funny/emotional than the first three, and because as far as I recall, there were no moments of violence that made me feel sick to my stomach, which has happened before.

I don't know if I have a favorite episode yet, but I really dig the theme shows, like "Monster Movie". Where things get silly. And any time one of the boys (including Castiel) gets to eat a lot? I just really love to see them eating. Warms my heart. Kit tells me there's an episode where Famine comes to town and makes everyone hungry, and Castiel basically eats cheeseburgers the whole time. I am looking forward to it. :)

Do you have a favorite season and episode?

WinchesterKitty Featured By Owner Jul 31, 2012
I have to agree with you on my favorite season being 4 because of the whole balance thing, but also because the boys finally have a purpose that is more than just self preservation (sn 3) or revenge (sn 1&2)

I really can't say that I have one favorite, but I really love the silly ones, Especially Hell House with the prank wars :sqee: <3 it!
I'm not queamish at all so the gore doesn't get to me and I think Dean's thing for pie is Adorable! in SN 5 when they go to heaven you find out why Dean loves pie and it is heart breakingly cute. And all the food jokes are GREAT!
Anywhos back on subject I Love the episodes
My Bloody Valentine-where Famine comes in and Cas turns into the Hamburgalar XD
Free to be You and Me-Cas goes to a brothel and is BA
and finally My Heart Will Go On-in which the Titanic doesn't sink and Fate is a capricious bitch <.< >.> >u<

Okay, last night I skipped ahead and watched "My Bloody Valentine", and I wanted to love it, but mostly I was just like... someone please take the burgers away from Castiel. He's going to hurt Jimmy! And then the pan of raw meat! I know Dean had other things on his mind, but I wanted him to leap over the stove and tackle him or something.

And then, to top that off, I watched "The End" where Dean gets booted into 2014, and seeing Cas all debauched and careless made my heart hurt. I had to wonder how Dean could ever let him get to that point. Poor baby.

Aw, the origin of Dean's pie love! Ffff, of course it's heartbreaking. What in this show isn't a little heartbreaking?

"it's in the low hundreds." XD
I'm sorry you feel that way about the epi. I got over the whole "you're gonna hurt Jimmy" thing by making a head cannon that Jimmy is either in a permenent irreversable comma Or is already in heaven and It's just Cas in there.

2014 Cas kinda creeps me out with the whole orgy and everything, breaks my heart for obvious reasons, and makes me laugh; cause "I like past you" and his general sarcasm is Great!

And no, the whole series is absolutely heartbreaking; and you have yet to get to the angstiest parts. in order to enjoy the series you have to enjoy a bit of angst.

Oh my, I am so glad you're watching Supernatural. I'm doing a rewatch myself right now and I am really feeling the Castiel love as well. This is just lovely--I always love the texture you put into your work. <3 Looking forward to more SPN related pieces in the future hopefully. :D

Everyone loves Castiel because he's the most genuine character. Everything he does is with good intentions. That, and he's as cute as a mouse's pocketbook. C:

Isn't he just? I'm also in love with the actor's reported antics in fandom. Haven't actually seen them first hand but I've read a heap of write ups on "what he's been up to lately" type-things that just seemed so cute and funny. The way he plays with his fan base, but in a funny and loving way.

Yes! Another Supernatural junkie! *hands pie*

Cas's face looks a little wide, and it gives him sort of a child-like air, but I still like it. It's still obviously Cas. Makes me wonder what he's looking up at... (Dean? I could see Cas having that sort of child-like faith look for Dean.)

:iconlily-fox:
lily-fox Featured By Owner Jul 28, 2012
Yay, pie! How much do I love Dean and his need for pie. Such a cutie.

I think you're right about his face. I think I tend to de-age people too much in drawings, and part of Castiel's charm is the nice play of tenderness and severity on his face. Gotta work on it!

And he was, in my plan, actually supposed to be looking up at someone who was giving him a bowl of ice cream. ^u^

scriptor-scriptorum Featured By Owner Jul 29, 2012
Dean is giving Cas the ice cream from his pie a la mode. Because that would be adorable. (And we all know that Dean added ice cream to his pie just because he knows Cas loves it so much.)

I feel like everyone should have one. It can be crooked or dirty or cracked or sparklin' clean, but it would be a good indicator of personality, no?
