YES THANK YOU SAME and if bi!dean goes textual while he’s a demon 1) ppl are going to say “he was a demon so it doesn’t count” and 2) IT DOESN’T HELP WITH THE WRONGLY ACCUSED PROMISCUITIOUS IMAGE OF BISEXUALITY
Well, Dean’s already pretty promiscuous, that has been established. He’s promiscuously straight, regardless of any future announcements that he’s bi, that doesn’t change. I don’t think it would be fair to say it wouldn’t count if he was a demon, because maybe that would lower his inhibitions about it. It would actually make sense because let’s face it, if they wanted him to be bi, they would have already made that clear. The only way they could plausibly make him bi at this point and not have it seem like they’re just throwing something fanservicey into the character would be to have him change so fundamentally (like becoming a demon) that they could say he was just so far into the closet he wouldn’t admit it without a major character change. So while I see the point you’re making, I think in terms of realism, if there is any intention of making him bi, now would be a good time to do it.
I agree with you to a certain degree. I also think becoming a demon would remove any inhibitions/repression going on inside Dean, and it would be one of the ways to have textual bi!Dean, but only if the form of the story being told was in fanfic (where queer reading of a character is normalized), or if the whole audience already had a good grasp on the LGBTQIAP+ community. That’s not the case with mainstream media, unfortunately.
What I want out of textual bi!Dean is for it to go textual in a way that wouldn’t be arguable. To establish this while he’s a demon gives too much ammos to the part of audience who absolutely refuse bi!Dean reading, who can and will make any of the following arguments:
The show doesn’t need to convince any of us that Dean is bi, because we don’t need convincing. It needs to convince the people who don’t see it yet for whatever reasons, and do it in such a way they can’t argue about who he’s attracted to.
One way of having bi!Dean textual would be to have another Aaron-esque scene. Maybe Dean’s at a bar and Sam isn’t with him, and he sees a guy giving him a look. He stalks over, and they chat, and find out he’s attracted to Dean. They have a few laugh, maybe have a drink or two but not enough to get completely shit-faced, and they go back to a motel and spend the night together, and the camera pans over the floor to show their clothes scattered across the floor the next morning.
Maybe they don’t even have to go back to the motel. Maybe they’d be chatting, and Dean has to leave, so instead of stumbling over a table and stuttering out a “you have a good day” this time, maybe he’ll have enough courage to smile and say, “I’ll take up on your offer next time”.
It’s going to have to be delicately handled, sure, and it’s not going to be easy to convince a large part of the fandom. But having bi!Dean go textual while he’s an entirely different species is a cop-out since they can always use an excuse to deny the bi!Dean reading. They can always fall back to “everyone can read it differently!” instead of a definite “yes, Dean is bisexual”. And at this point, that isn’t good enough.
Have you ever had an amazing idea for a fic but you just couldn’t write it? Or, have you ever had the urge to write something, but you just couldn’t think of anything to write? Well look no further!
No, this isn’t a network where you have to answer a survey and we’ll pick who we think should be a part of it. This is an open blog being managed by four of us who will be keeping track of your ideas and giving them up to the people who feel like they want to write them.
but brenna how the fuck will this even work?
Well friends let me explain to you this wonderful thing.
Basically, if you have an idea that you want to see someone write, you submit to us at the blog the following:
- Your basic prompt and then the extra details that follow
- Rating (that you want to see this fic written as if you care)
- Pairing (who you want this fic to be about)
- Category (hurt/comfort or drama or slow-build or friendship or etc.)
- Word count (if any)
- Additional Wants (kinks, side pairings, tropes, brOTPs, etc.)
- No-Nos (pairings, kinks, side characters, etc. anything you don’t want to see)
- au’s/canon? (do you want it to be true to the show/book/movie/whatever or do you want a hs/college/fantasy/modern day/whatever au?)
and then we number it and add it to the page to be claimed and tag it accordingly.
If you see a prompt that you like, you can claim it by messaging us and then we’ll /close/ that prompt and tag it, the original prompt giver and you in the ask so that you both know who’s going to give writing it a shot and who originally came up with the idea.
And don’t worry, we’ll expect check ins from whomever is writing your fic and we’ll hopefully keep you updated! You can track your fic’s progress just by asking it’s new writer! Isn’t that great???
Once the fic is finished, the author will send it to us to post on the blog and we’ll tag both the author and the original prompt giver and once the giver has told us they’ve read it, we’ll give the author the green light to repost it anywhere they please! Sounds fair, yeah?
but what happens if i want a prompt but i want something that caters to what I like to write?
Well this blog is dedicated to helping you unload your ideas, but it’s also here to help get all of your creative juices flowing!
So we’ll have a detailed tags list for each component of the prompt. You’re looking to write a nice slow-build romance? Look through the tag! Want a nice pwp hs!au? Look through either the ratings tag or the au one! Want to write something that’s expected to be extremely long? Look at the different word count tags! We’ll make sure that the tags page is always up to date so if all of a sudden we get a prompt with something that hasn’t been added to the page yet, boom there it is!
but brenna, what if I’m not a part of the Supernatural fandom?
Don’t let that get you down my friend! Here at ficpromptpartners, we accept alllll fandoms! And not just any fandom, any ship too! You wanna write a Sterek fic but you don’t have any ideas? Come here! You have a great Clintasha idea that you just can’t think of how to write? This is the place to unload it! Hell, you have a John Watson/Castiel headcanon that’s been bumping around in that head of yours? Give it to us and we’ll give it a good home!
um but there’s no ideas there yet…
Aw yes see and this is where our problem comes in. We need your ideas to be able to make this thing go! We won’t be able to give your ideas homes or give you ideas if no one sends in any prompts, so make sure you do!
And to keep track of prompts and finished fics or any updates, you can follow this blog to watch the ideas come in!
who are these admins you spoke of?
Any questions can be directed to any of us or the blog itself.
if you’re interested in sending in your prompts or getting a prompt from this blog, you should definitely reblog this post to spread the word, yeah?
