Every once in a while, when I'm online and perusing through the fandom stuff, I see something that just...well...makes me do something crazy to prove a point. There's a lot of unnecessary Castiel hate out there. He's been such an integral part of the series since season four. He's one of the gang and the show wouldn't be the same without him. Granted, I'm not sure why there is any character hate out there ever, but I won't go into that.
We here at the WFB love all the characters, so after seeing all this I threatened a top ten article on why Castiel is awesome. When Bardicvoice gave me one reason, I invited others to give theirs. What do you know, the response was overwhelming! A bunch of fans really got into this and it solidified why Castiel means so much to us. It was freaking beautiful.
I captured a lot of these tweets in Storify and I'm including that link below. Feel free to share yours in the comments if you missed out on this on Twitter. Yes, I plan on when the occasion is right trying to do ones for Sam and Dean as well, and maybe others. But today it's all about Cas. He's earned our love.
