Now that I have your attention, there was an interview done by the women of Fangasm with Misha Collins and was posted Apirl 7th (2014). The interview I’m talking about ~~~> [X]
In it, an important distinction is made in which I feel all Destielers should be privy to. Especially given all the negative remarks given my some *ahem* people that left many Destiel faithful, feeling dismissed and shamed.
Us seeing romantic tropes, sexual tension and chemistry as well as profound bonds between Dean and Castiel were reduced to wild fantasies, straight women’s gay porn fetishes and something that only existed within the minds of fanfiction writers and their readers. 
Not only insulting to the Greatest Love Story ever told… but insulting to those who believe in it.
Right?
Misha helped some of us during the really rough spot by saying:
"You’re not crazy." [X]
And now… this interview makes it all come full circle when he tells us that Destiel is canonically possible.
<snippit>
Misha: And of course when you’re saying Wincest versus Destiel, I think that it probably makes it a little more compelling of a story line if it’s something that one can imagine IS imaginable whereas it’s something that we know is just a fantasy. Wincest fans had to know that that was just a fantasy.
Lynn and Kathy: (are nodding)
Misha: Like, this is just our fantasy, it’s not something that’s ever going to happen.
Kathy: Yes, it made for a very different dynamic, because Wincest was just for fanworks, whereas this (Destiel) is canon possibility technically.
Misha: Right. But yeah, it’s interesting. So then people like me addressing it gives it a little more gravitas or makes it feel more possibly accessible and then that …. (throws up hands and looks distressed) That probably makes me an even bigger queer baiter than ever…
Lynn: But having no discussion isn’t good either. It’s what we wrote Fangasm about – challenging that sense of shame that comes with being a fan sometimes, for all kinds of reasons, and isn’t good for anyone.
<end of snippit>
There you have it… clear distinction between ‘fantasy’ and ‘canon’ possibilities.
And no Misha, it doesn’t make you a queer baiter. We all know you have been accused of ‘trolling’ or trying to get a rise out of people but instead, you have been trying to be supportive and give doses of reason the whole time. Maybe you should have a sit down with Lucy Lawless who was accused of the same thing when she was the only one willing to talk openingly about Xena and Gabrielle’s relationship. Lucy Lawless was proven right in the end, of course, when Xena and Gabrielle’s being in love with one another and being each other’s soul mates was made Canon in the series finale’ 
~*~

In an interview given by Lucy Lawless to Lesbian News magazine in 2003. - Lawless stated that after the series finale, where Gabrielle revives Xena with a mouth-to-mouth water transfer filmed to look like a full kiss, she had come to believe that Xena and Gabrielle’s relationship was “definitely gay… there was always a ‘well, she might be or she might not be’ but when there was that drip of water passing between their lips in the very final scene, that cemented it for me. Now it wasn’t just that Xena was bisexual and kinda liked her gal pal and they kind of fooled around sometimes, it was ‘Nope, they’re married, man’.”
The video of this said ‘mouth to mouth’… ~~> [X]
If you want to read my short write up on the distinction and parallels between what is going on with Destiel and what happened with Xena and Gabrielle… you can find it here ~~> [X]. 
I don’t believe the writers are queer baiting (who started that term anyway?). I think the dynamic between Dean and Cas is purely subconsciously being filtered through the writers no matter their conscious intentions. They are NOT in control of the ship… the ship is in control of them. In ancient times such a thing used to be attributed to The Muses… particularly Erato (Eros) in the case of Destiel… one of the nine Muses who inspired love and falling in love. Whether psychological or goddess driven, I’m thankful the writers are not in control. lol
I also don’t believe Misha is playing up to fans or bemusing himself with teasing us (the dude is not a sociopath, he knows how important this subject is emotionally for us). I honestly believe HE believes there IS something there and that Destiel has canon possibilities because all the troupes and chemistry is there by means even he has no clue how they got there (*coughs* thank you Erato! *coughs*). It happened and it is. That’s all he knows and he is all for it becoming canon should the ship steer headlong into those shores.
People can go on and on all day about “It won’t be canon!” or “It will be canon!” They can do it all day long till they pass out from oxygen deprivation from flapping so much about it and not taking a pause to breathe.
At the end of the day, for me, what matters is the reality of subtext (which IS AN ELEMENT/LAYER OF CANON PEOPLE! Like it or hate it) and the possibility of canon.
It gives validation beyond someone giving me what I want… it validates  WHAT I SEE WITH MY HEART without someone having to make it happen.

What gets me with this gif every time is the fact that Dean thinks Cas is going to kill him when he reaches for his face. If it was anyone else, even Sammy, Dean would fight back as much as he could to stay alive but not with his angel. Instead of fighting, he just grabs his arm as if reassurance to say “no matter what you do, I will always love you.”
Now look me in the face and tell me this isn’t canon.
