Supernatural 30 Day challenge - Day 1

Day 1 - Sam or Dean? - Yes.  That was a yes/no question, right?

Oh, ok, I started out a Dean girl because I get Dean as older sibling.  I get his taste in cars, pop culture, and music and hanging on to the past with his Dad's old jacket.  I've got the family peacemaker role down to a science.  His loyalty, once given, is close to permanent.  Unfortunately, I understand the depression.  We both snark and deflect when we're uncomfortable talking about emotions.  And I've fallen for the Han Solo character since The Empire Strikes Back.  Plus, Dean is just so damn beautiful.

But over time, I appreciated Sam more and more.  He's grown up a lot.  And then came The Born Again Identitiy and man, I've just loved Sam since then.  In the midst of dying, he's still helping somebody else.  As the seasons go on, it's a lot easier to see Sam for himself and not in terms of what he means to Dean.  I love that he has hope despite everything he's been through.  He wants to make things better.  He's pragmatic and smart.  What I've understood from the get-go with Sam is that sometimes leaving is the only way to survive and figuring out who you are instead of who other people think you should be is crucial to growing up.  Plus, Sam is hot like burning.

If we actually met, I'd be scared of both of the guys.  I'm initially scared of everybody anyhow but these guys would set off every alarm I've got.  Even if that wasn't the case, I doubt Dean and I would like each other much at first.  We'd have a lot of fun snarking at each other though.  Sam and I could hang out any time.  Honestly, I would just end up trying to mother the hell out of both of them.

I love this answer. I actually like hearing about people who start of not really understanding Sam to appreciating him as time goes by. And all your reasons for loving him are mine, (and Dean's too. I think his loyalty and devotion are some of my fav qualities oh his - oh and his gorgeous face...;D)

Sometimes I think Sam is harder to get to know because we see so much of the early seasons from Dean's point of view. It isn't until we got to see some of the action from his point of view that he started to become clearer. It's especially true with the demonblood detox stuff in When the Levee Breaks and later with Lucifer in his head. He does have a couple of times early on when you really get in his head though through what he says to Dean. The bit at the end of Houses of the Holy comes to mind. The flashback stuff to when they are kids adds a lot. It doesn't hurt that they've given Jared some meatier stuff to sink his acting chops into. He's grown so much as an actor and it's been really great to watch.

I love hearing how people personally identify with these characters. Like your experience identifying with Sam has evolved, I've come to appreciate Dean much more over the years.

If we actually met, I'd be scared of both of the guys ... these guys would set off every alarm I've got.

Wise on your part. *nods*

I think for a lot of people, Dean is an acquired taste...I typed that and started to laugh because wendigos, djinns, Eve and a lot of other critters agree.

You know, it would actually be pretty scary to meet Sam and Dean. They're pretty scary guys; it's just something they exude from their pores without thinking about it. XD

My desire to wrap them up in a blanket and feed them soup is already at level 100. <3

Soup is good. I'd have to bite my tongue not to give them a lecture on proper diet and sleep. And then make sure they are wearing clean dry socks...
