Oh hello Misha Collin's interview I've just stumbled across:
"scifiwire.com: Your character, Castiel, is accused by Anna [Julie McNiven] of not being able to feel real emotion, but he seems to have a real affection for Dean [Jensen Ackles]. How do you work with that sort of dichotomy?
Misha Collins: Yes, how do you explain the homoerotic tension [laughs]? ...I think that it's sort of, by the transitive property, he's beginning to feel emotion ever so slightly. That's my answer to the question. By his proximity to Dean, some of Dean's human properties are beginning to rub off on Castiel. And he's starting to feel, and I think that he doesn't really know how to interpret the feelings."

In other news, does anyone have instructions on how to grow your own Tardis? Because really, this packing for The Hub2 malarky? SO NOT HAPPENING. ugh. I have more stuff than I know what to do with and nowhere to pack it all. The crazy thing is I'm not taking anything I don't *need*. At least I don't think I am.
