    Dean and Castiel! Hell yes to the greatest love story ever told :’) And fingers crossed for the jump to the other “favorite couple” cathegory next year 😀

    As a supernatural fan, naturally Dean and Castiel. Especially in light of season 8, which, as I saw it, marked a very subtle (who am I kidding, not at all subtle) but important shift in their relationship. fingers crossed for spn to take the leap in s9 because the foundation is built.

  4. Jennifer on June 26th, 2013 8:14 pm

    I think that if Supernatural decided to take Dean and Castiel all the way into a romantic relationship, and did it properly, it would be a huge landmark for television and would go down as one of the best developed romances of all time.

  5. Courtney on June 26th, 2013 8:18 pm

    Dean and Castiel, the righteous man and the fallen angel, the greatest love story to ever be!

  6. Jen on June 26th, 2013 8:19 pm

    Dean & Cas have the most believable love story & best chemistry between 2 characters that I’ve seen since Mulder & Scully. It’s a beautiful relationship that has grown & developed organically through the seasons, & I hope to see it come to fruition.

  7. RileyJo on June 26th, 2013 8:26 pm

    Dean and Castiel share a romance better than any other couple I’ve seen on TV, together or not. I really hope that next season they finally admit how they feel to each-other, and can get the full romantic recognition they deserve, to the greatest romance ever crated on television.

  8. Erica on June 26th, 2013 8:26 pm

    If the writers ever went through with it, Dean and Castiel’s love story would be historic. And I hope they realize that it can be, while still keeping the focus of the show as a monster-killing show. What people need to understand is that this show is about family, and family comes in many shapes and forms, including that of romantic love.

    I firmly believe these two are in love. Nothing could convince me otherwise.

  9. Diana on June 26th, 2013 8:27 pm

    Dean and Castiel, because of unbelievable chemistry (yes, this does matter) and because they are so connected, and intimate, and perfect for each other, and yet still don’t realise it. But above all things, they make each other better, and they’re starting to understand how to let go and respect each other’s choices.
    Profound Bond all the way<3

  10. Sierra on June 26th, 2013 9:11 pm

    Dean and Castiel!

  11. Michelle on June 26th, 2013 9:39 pm

    Dean and Castiel, of course!
    I love that the writers have made their “relationship/friendship” intimate, but if they took it all the way….well, after all the things going on in our country right now, I think it’d be awesome.
    Destiel all the way!

  12. Seth on June 26th, 2013 9:51 pm

    Dean and Castiel have the most amazing chemistry. It’s easily one of the greatest love stories ever told, and has developed so organically through the seasons. Nothing will ever convince me that this isn’t romantic love, and if the writers would carry through with their story it would be one of the most meaningful portrayals of LGBTQ romance to ever hit television.

  13. lexi on June 26th, 2013 11:04 pm

    no but really, i think if they led into it properly on the show in season 9, it would attract a lot of attention and i think society needs it, and is ready.
    also they just make an amazing love story, I think.

  14. sandra on June 27th, 2013 1:03 am

    Dean and Castiel all the way. <3

  15. Lisa on June 27th, 2013 1:04 am

    I adore Dean and Castiel’s relationship. It is absolutely one of the best love stories ever for me.

  16. Lizzie on June 27th, 2013 1:20 am

    Dean and Cas.. 100%

  17. Jay on June 27th, 2013 1:56 am

    Dean and Castiel have a “profound bond.” They love and trust each other, have been from Heaven to Hell and even Purgatory for each other. Even if one lets the other down they’re still there to help them back up. From the very moment that Castiel stepped into the barn and said to Dean “You don’t think you deserve to be saved” it was as if he understood Dean in a way that no one else seemed to. Even if Destiel never became canon I’d be perfectly happy with the knowledge that Dean and Cas understand each other and need each other – because they do and because family isn’t just blood and because they would sacrifice themselves to save the other. I ship it, guys.

  18. Melissa on June 27th, 2013 2:30 am

    Dean and Castiel.

    There are so many reasons, but the most beautiful is that they have the most realistic, natural build-up into romance I’ve ever seen. They met, they fought, they hesitated, they became allies, they found friendship, they found faith, they discovered pain, they lost each other, they found and refused to give up the other, they tumbled into love, need and… well, isn’t that the way life sometimes throws your partner at you?

    They moved heaven, earth, hell and purgatory for each other. Show me a couple that even comes close to that kind of devotion. If love is power, theirs is a force to be reckoned with.

  19. Brianna on June 27th, 2013 2:51 am

    Dean and Castiel are one of the best and most well developed “couples” on television to date! WE NEED the writers to see how OKAY we are with this becoming what it so clearly is already!

  20. Norma on June 27th, 2013 3:14 am

    The fallen angel and the hunter it’s just such a perfect love, pure and destined to be. I ship it like there’s no tomorrow:D

  21. Sarah on June 27th, 2013 3:18 am

    Dean and Cas have by far the most realistically developed relationships on TV that I have ever scene. They slowly got closer and trusted each other, betrayed each other, and trusted again. They need each other, now more than ever and I can’t wait to see how their relationship moves forward now that two main obstacles keeping them apart have been removed (1. Cas is no longer an angel and 2. After that bar scene in the finale, Dean has figured out that just cause you love a guy doesn’t mean you are any less of a man).
    I think that if/when the writers actually decide to go through with it (as long as they do it the right way), it will make Supernatural go down in history.

  22. bakasara on June 27th, 2013 5:10 am

    Dean and Castiel, the greatest love story ever told. Like a user once said in a comment, if that’s not Love, then there is no Love. (I only hope they’ll get the chance to express that love openly before the show ends : D)

  23. Aj on June 27th, 2013 5:43 am

    Destiel is love

  24. Brynn on June 27th, 2013 5:52 am

    Dean and Cas. Definitely. Always.

  25. Sasi on June 27th, 2013 6:31 am

    Dean and Castiel, of course. I just love their special profound bond. Dean can’t live without his little angel.

  26. Violeta on June 27th, 2013 6:53 am

    Dean and Castiel, I love how their relationship grows through the seasons, the chemistry between the actors is breathtaking, their story together is epic and you can see the love in their eyes in every scene. Also Dean Winchester is my favourite fictional character and the possibility of him being bisexual (as I am) makes me happy.

  27. vinna devi on June 27th, 2013 6:54 am

    Dean and Cas are the greatest couple ever. They have a profound bond. Cas has literally died for Dean and they both have saved each other numerous times.

  28. Emma on June 27th, 2013 7:09 am

    Dean and Cas. Because they have the most beautiful love story you could possible imagine. They’re a miracle.

  29. Carmen on June 27th, 2013 8:17 am

    Dean and Cas, no doubt. One of the deepest relationships I’ve seen on television.

  30. Ann on June 27th, 2013 9:05 am

    Dean and Cas!!! 😀 Hopefully, they’ll get together before the series ends.

  31. Aika on June 27th, 2013 9:15 am

    Voted Dean/Cas because I love them, though I have to admit Tony/Ziva doesn’t sound too bad, either. Still, Dean and Cas is the way to go for me.

  32. Sophie on June 27th, 2013 9:37 am

    Dean and Cas have such a profound bond that it transcends every obstacle that was ever sent their way and they always find each other, it’s the most beautiful thing i’ve seen on a tv show.

  33. HQ on June 27th, 2013 10:11 am

    I had a hard time choosing between Tony/Ziva and Dean/Castiel, and now it dawns on me how similar the two “are they more than friends or what?” pairings actually are when you break it down (macho dude and extreme flirt is unlikely bffs with stoic soldier from another culture, emotionally charged moments of unresolved sexual tension abound.)

  34. Sissela on June 27th, 2013 10:29 am

    Dean and Castiel love each other very much, romantically or otherwise, there’s no denying the depth of the relationship. The amazing thing to me is how much I care about both the characters and how real it feels. You know, the show is about demons and monsters and angels, way out there, but the relationships (both brotherly and friendly and whatever-it-is that Dean and Cas have) feel just as real as my love for my own family and friends. That makes me care about them in a way I normally don’t with TV shows.

  35. Charlie on June 27th, 2013 10:37 am


  36. zsanett on June 27th, 2013 10:37 am


  37. Sarah Billy on June 27th, 2013 10:52 am

    Dean and Cas all the way <3

  38. Lenita on June 27th, 2013 11:06 am

    Dean and Cas are written in the stars, if not on script. The most compelling love story I have watched onscreen to date. It has reached the point that if they don’t go deeper with that relationship in the show, it is a network issue/they don’t have the guts to go all the way. I agree it would have been historic, but also the most fitting for the characters. That’s not to say I want them to be a couple by tomorrow, I want to see them grow and still come to terms with who they really are and to challenge each other. Just as long as they work together, with Sam too, as a whole team. Let they all have a chance to get to know and trust each other, especially Sam and Cas.
    That’s all I ask. 😉

  39. mia on June 27th, 2013 11:28 am

    Dean and Cas. the perfect two <3

  40. Tiffany on June 27th, 2013 11:43 am

    Showing my Dean/ Cas love here. Can’t stop what the fans want.

  41. Georgia on June 27th, 2013 12:57 pm

    Dean and Castiel because their interactions are written so romantic, it’s getting ridiculous.

  42. SS on June 27th, 2013 1:02 pm

    It is amazing how beautiful Dean and Castiel’s relationship is! Their romance is so well written! My vote goes for them!!! 🙂

  43. Alexis on June 27th, 2013 1:11 pm

    Dean and Castiel their characters have such great chemistry plus season 8, aka is this real life or is this just fanfiction, made quite a few not so subtle moves in their relationship. I’m not saying I think that is where the writing is going however I do think it would be a amazing love for season 9 because Dean needs someone to rely on other than his brother.

  44. Alex on June 27th, 2013 1:28 pm

    Dean and Cas are a soldier and a hunter who were never supposed to need each other, but keep going back to each other. They’re discovering they are worthy of being loved, they’re learning how to love together. Their love goes beyond gender and labels, it’s not about what they were taught or who they’re supposed to be, it’s about who they truly are and it’s beautiful.

  45. Dot on June 27th, 2013 1:36 pm

    Dean & Cas. \o/ What a powerful and unique relationship, a strong bond that crosses species and culture lines. It’s been amazing watching their bond develop and grow. The against all odds friendship is compelling all in itself, and then there are the hints of something more beneath the surface, the UST, the body language, the suggestiveness of a romantic vibe. Whether Dean/Cas becomes canon or not, this is one of the best love stories on TV.

  46. SPN FAN on June 27th, 2013 1:38 pm

    Dean and CASTIEL!!!! They are my OTP. They just have so much chemistry unlike any other couple.

  47. Kung on June 27th, 2013 1:45 pm

    Dean and Castiel, all the way! The greatest love story ever told…they have a bond that transcends everything.

  48. Dean and Cas! on June 27th, 2013 1:46 pm

    Aw, this one’s too easy. Dean and Cas everday. OTP forever.

  49. KT on June 27th, 2013 1:53 pm

    Sometimes I wonder how far they can take Dean and Castiel’s “profound bond” before they are out right making out! Haha, I absolutely love the development for them though, and I do hope they take them them to the next step eventually. Their relationship is beautiful and has a lot of meaning to me. Destiel forever 😀

  50. Lisa on June 27th, 2013 2:05 pm

    Castiel and Dean, of course <3
    The development of their story and their relationship is so wonderful.
    I do hope that the writers will have the courage to continue the telling of their story – and make Destiel finally canon.

  51. E. on June 27th, 2013 2:24 pm

    Dean and Cas, always. I’m really glad someone else mentioned Mulder and Scully, because I find them to be such a wonderful parallel. It’s worth a mention that M&S are my OTP, with D&C being my “non-canon OTP”–and second overall to M&S. If they became canon, hell, I feel like they may even take over the pairing that’s been the dearest to my heart for as long as I can remember…

    Everyone’s already said all that I can say about this pairing–I too hope that the writers will take the step into making it official!

  52. Hayley on June 27th, 2013 2:33 pm

    even if you don’t ship dean and castiel, the ship sails itself

  53. michael on June 27th, 2013 2:35 pm

    I LOVE DEAN AND CAS 🙂 I hope that they do end up together because they really do care and love each other so much.

  54. james on June 27th, 2013 2:37 pm

    Dean and Cas are my OTP because of how much they care for each other, and how they always find each other no matter what.

  55. Olivia on June 27th, 2013 2:38 pm

    “See Castiel has this weakness, he likes you.” – URIEL ANGEL OF THE LORD

    “You know the one who’s in a dirty trenchcoat who’s in love with you?” – BALTHAZAR ANGEL OF THE LORD

    “He was your boyfriend first.” – MEG THE DEMON

    “Where’s your angel?” – CROWLEY THE (FORMER) KING OF HELL


    “You know what? When angels and demons agree on something, call me nuts, I pay attention.” – SAM WINCHESTER

  56. lisa on June 27th, 2013 2:39 pm

    Dean and Castiel, there’s no doubt in that!

  57. Anna on June 27th, 2013 2:44 pm

    Dean and Castiel for sure

  58. Natalie on June 27th, 2013 3:09 pm

    Definitely Dean and Castiel!
    Few couples on tv make me feel as invested in their story as they do! To see their profound bond grow through the seasons as they learned to trust and rely on each other is wonderful to watch. While I adore Sam and Dean and love their brotherly scenes, I have to admit that at this stage, Dean and Cas are my favourite relationship on the show. The extent to which they will protect each other and how they refuse to give up on each other even, literally, in the face of death is so beautiful to watch. They’ve gone through many struggles and their relationship has had many ups and downs but they always manage to overcome it. Even when Cas does something that Dean doesn’t approve of that would instantly turn him against anyone else, Dean always forgives him because, as Sam said, “He’s Cas!”. With everything they’ve been through, through heaven and hell, death and back there is nothing they can’t get through together. And after watching Dean’s utter depression in Season 7 when Cas had died, i think we can all agree how much the hunter needs his angel – even if we hadn’t had two amazing scenes this season which voiced just that!

  59. Sophia on June 27th, 2013 3:19 pm

    Definitely Dean and Castiel, the show’s OTP. They are two halves of a whole, and nothing will ever convince me that they didn’t fall deeply in love with each other, during their 5 years of fighting together. 😀

  60. Joels K on June 27th, 2013 4:23 pm

    Dean & Cas. Profoundly bonded hunter and angel have stolen my heart, forever!

  61. con on June 27th, 2013 5:13 pm

    I think it’s safe to say it’s a resounding vote for Destiel

  62. lauren on June 27th, 2013 5:55 pm

    Dean and Castiel. No matter what, they always find a way back to each other. I’m rooting for them.

  63. Yvonne on June 27th, 2013 8:06 pm

    Dean and Castiel all the way! I’ve never cried over two people more. The chemistry is so compelling and strong, you forget that there are other people in the rooms sometimes. I’m surprised they are not together yet!

  64. anna on June 27th, 2013 8:18 pm

    Dean and Castiel, the better love story EVER told.

  65. Beth on June 27th, 2013 9:47 pm

    Dean and Castiel have the best slow-burn romance on television. They are best friends, and also each other’s personal tragedies. They were never meant to be together, Castiel wasn’t even a part of this story — but they defy fate and god and death again and again, to find to each other. Dean especially has realized how much he needs Cas in his life, and will claw his way through Purgatory for a year before he lets him go. He’ll risk his life on the chance that his friend will recognize him through Naomi’s mind control. And because Castiel loves him, he does. It’s really mind-boggling what they’ve been through together.

  66. Elisabeth G on June 27th, 2013 10:01 pm

    Society is more than ready for a couple like this to become a reality. I think it would attract a lot of attention and be GREAT for business; it would be trendy too, considering all the legislation that’s being passed to further marriage equality.

    It makes sense, from a social, artistic and business standpoint. Let’s get it done producers, let’s get it done network execs!

  67. sakane on June 27th, 2013 10:37 pm

    Profound bond!! <3

  68. Ashleigh on June 27th, 2013 10:58 pm

    I love Esposito & Lanie and hope they get back together on Castle but I had to vote for Dean and Castiel! Happy that Castle is getting more exposure though hehe.

  69. Little Red Charlette on June 27th, 2013 11:13 pm

    Where are SHELDON & PENNY for our fave couple who’s (painfully) not together? No one can deny the amazeballs chemistry these 2 have had since the Pilot. Hands-down, the most exciting/funny/sweet/cute/pull-your-pigtails-at-the-playground-and-bring-out-the-best-and-worst-in-each-other chemistry among the whole cast, which makes the fact that they’re not given a chance to be together such a crying shame.

  70. E Novak on June 28th, 2013 2:08 am

    Absolutely my vote goes to Dean and Castiel, the hunter and the former angel. For me it is already an epic love story no matter what happens in the future on the show. The angel that got too close to those in his charge (aka: Dean) and defied Heaven itself to help Dean Winchester try and save the world. The hunter that doesn’t trust anything supernatural, but yet came to care about the angel like one of his own family. Even though in theory they’re two beings that probably shouldn’t work, they fit together to beautifully that it often brings me to tears.

  71. cyano on June 28th, 2013 2:08 am

    Like most cas see dean eyes, never so earnest focue, as if only can see him. cas for dean fall day for he rebelled against god, and there are a lot of pay are let people moved. dean also never give up the cas, even if he hurt sam. so this vote I want to chose them.

  72. balrogcumbersmaug on June 28th, 2013 3:44 am

    Dean and Cas all the way to the other end of this universe and back because they love each other beyond the shadow of a doubt, even if it is in a brotherly way because that love is still there and there’s no denying it and I think that if the writers were to finally go through with it (in the right fashion) Destiel would go down in history.

  73. katie on June 28th, 2013 6:14 am

    Dean and Cas, absolutely. I agree with everyone else: considering season 8, I’d be stunned if they didn’t go canon before the end of the series.

  74. Lorena on June 28th, 2013 1:22 pm

    Tony and Ziva

  75. Kiara on June 28th, 2013 3:03 pm

    Dean&Castiel ♥

  76. Camille on June 28th, 2013 4:15 pm

    Even the actors support Destiel!

  77. Sun on June 29th, 2013 2:19 am

    Dean and Castiel. Most romantic couple I’ve seen.
    I don’t care if they don’t kiss, because they have intimate moments in different levels. I don’t care if they don’t say ‘I love you’, cause they say it everytime they look at each other. They may not have many hugs, but they’re always attracted to each other… like magnets.
    Pure love.

  78. Amy on June 29th, 2013 2:37 pm

    Dean/Cas. It’s not even a question to me. Even if you don’t choose to see them as a canon-worthy couple, the chemistry between the two is remarkable. Jensen and Misha are both just such incredible actors, and the show has given us ample opportunity, particularly this season, to explore the dynamic of their relationship and the development thereof.

  79. Sunny on June 29th, 2013 4:03 pm

    At this point, Dean and Castiel, absolutely. Their relationship has been developed so organically that if the show decides to take the leap and make it a romance in canon, it will feel like the next natural step. I also feel it is the smartest choice, taking into account the current social atmosphere. As long as it’s done so that the show’s overall themes don’t shift, I’m all for the love story between the hunter and his (former)angel.

  80. Song on July 1st, 2013 10:41 am

    Okay, if Dean and Cas are not canon, then why do they seem to keep getting pulled into competitions about couples?
    It’s amazing that the kind of chemistry between Dean and Castiel are comparable to the chemistry between all of the other couples: Rachel and Finn for example, who totally were together….
    Dude…no other love is better than theirs, hands down. Castiel and Dean.

  81. Julia on July 1st, 2013 11:28 am

    Dean and Castiel? Are you CRAZY? There’s no such thing as Destiel except in fanon. I don’t understand all of you delusional people. There’s nothing canonical about Dean & Cas. Seriously – you people are crazy.

  82. Mitchie on July 1st, 2013 1:03 pm

    Oh god I will vote for any other pairing just so Destiel won’t win. I just don’t see it at all. Yuck.

  83. Erica on July 1st, 2013 3:10 pm

    And again, people who don’t ship Destiel have nothing better to do with their lives than obsess over Destiel. Seriously, those two comments above me…get a life.

  84. Logan on July 1st, 2013 3:28 pm

    I think it’s funny that people are complaining that Dean and Cas “aren’t canon” when this is a contest for couples that AREN’T TOGETHER. Hands down voted for Cas and Dean, for two equally important reasons: 1, Dean and Cas’ story reads as undeniably romantic to me. And 2, even if Cas had never appeared I would still never be able to see Dean as anything other than a repressed bisexual. He has been sending out glaringly obvious signals since the earliest seasons.

  85. Apple on July 1st, 2013 5:47 pm

    Dean/Cas, most epic love story ever told. The way that they look at each other, fight for each other, they’ve literally been through Heaven, Hell and even Purgatory together. Dean would have rather destroyed himself (along with Benny) getting Cas out of Purgatory then leave him behind. I mean come on how do you not see love there?

  86. Char on July 1st, 2013 8:43 pm

    I am not a “shipper” and do not consider myself to be part of fandom, but I appreciate the sheer depth of Dean and Castiel’s relationship, whether it’s interpreted as romantic, familial or otherwise. It blows the others here out of the water.

  87. Lisa on July 1st, 2013 9:00 pm

    I need Tony and Ziva to get together before I die! I mean that literally. It’s been 8 years, and I’m not getting any younger.

  88. Jordan on July 1st, 2013 10:53 pm

    Go Dean/Cas! 😀

  89. Hana on July 2nd, 2013 4:39 pm


  90. deaniebee on July 2nd, 2013 8:34 pm

    Dean and Cas! They’re relationship dynamic is so unique and so natural. Would love to see it be canon in season 9! Loved all the destiel moments in season gr8! Eagerly awaiting more ~

  91. sammy on July 3rd, 2013 12:30 pm

    DESTIEL <3

    Destiel is love! I hope Dean and Cas end up together because they really do love and care for each other:)

    Dean and Castiel! Without their profound bond spn wouldn’t have made it this far!

    Dean and Castiel, because Castiel’s only crime was loving Dean too much.

    When will people learn…? *sigh* Dean and Castiel will never be true…it is not a love story…it is completely platonic…they are like brothers.
