If any brothers know how to brother, it’s the Winchester brothers. But it’s not all searching to the ends of the earth for each other, dying for each other.... killing to save the other. No, sometimes it’s the little things. 

"How To Be A Good Brother"


It’s believing in their artistic ability, 

Even when they doubt themselves.

It’s knowing their artistic ability includes multiple mediums,

Even if they would rather not broadcast their skills,

And gently critiquing their work, 

In an effort to help them be their best selves.

It’s supporting their hobbies, 

continually trying to get them to take time to indulge in them.

And proudly boasting about their hobbies

To friends, family, and others who may not know about them.

It’s the matter of always being there 

As they look for love.... or whatever.

It’s making sure they put they’re best foot forward, 

To ensure success in romantic endeavors.

Sometimes, however, it’s coaxing the other brother, 

Helping them past their fears respectfully and empathetically

It’s helping them achieve dreams

That they have had since childhood.

And, lastly, it’s having their back 

When they get themselves into a sticky situation.

So, being a good brother is about things great and small, in the good times, and in the bad. But, whenever possible, have a laugh - sometimes at your brother’s expense, because odds are he’ll get a chance to laugh at your expense, too.
