So, there’s this thing on the Internet called “shipping,” which is when fans of (typically) fantasy and sci-fi shows imagine pairings of characters who don’t actually get together on the show.

Well, the CW hit “Supernatural” is literally winning at Tumblr because of the homoerotic shipping that's happening between two of its characters, Dean and Castiel -- or Destiel as their union is affectionately termed by fans.

A quick Google search for “shipping” led us into a deep-dive resulting in the glorious discovery of the super amazing and gay world of Destiel fan art.

On the show, Dean and Castiel are just two straight dudes that are friends; but on the Internet…anything goes.

This is Dean.


The WB

This is Castiel.

This is their relationship on the show:

So, the Internet took it upon itself to create one of the most adorable gay couples the world will never know.

Sometimes the photoshopping is pretty incredible.

But, fans seem to love the will-they-wont-they tension.

Like, is he checking him out? Or….

Other times fans love reading sexual subtext into actual scenes from the show.

Fans are really identifying with Christmas-themed stuff huh?

Sometimes, it’s just straight-up weird.

But mostly, fans just want to see their boys together.
