“I have to admit, I like being on top.”

If you were on Tumblr this past decade, you’ve probably heard of a little ship called “Destiel.”

But for those unfamiliar, Destiel (also known as DeanCas) is the pairing of Dean Winchester and Castiel the angel from the hit CW show Supernatural.

There’s a loooong history behind this ship, but the TL;DR is that it was hinted to be more than platonic throughout the course of the show but was never explicitly explored until Cas finally professed his love for Dean at the end of the series.

…But of course we can’t have nice things!

The CW

Basically, Castiel sacrifices himself immediately after and Dean never gets a chance to respond to his confession. But hey, at least the ship is technically canon? SIGH.

ANYWAYS. Misha Collins, who played Cas, tweeted something very important yesterday, and I think everyone just needs to see it for themselves.

Speaking of numbers, Cas/Dean fanfics have reached the milestone of being the first “‘ship” with 100,000+ stories. I have to admit, I like being on top. #Destiel100k #DeanCas100k

Interpret the “I like being on top” comment as you wish.

Naturally, fans had some great reactions:

No bc is so funny because everybody from the cast/crew just tends to be careful when talking about Deancas (sometimes rightfully so) and then we have Misha Collins coming here and saying “I like being on top” all unbothered… he is insane for this LMAOOO

Someone also pointed out something very important about Archive of Our Own (aka AO3):

@mishacollins Ummmm y’all realize that you only see that number of fica if you are logged into AN ACCOUNT. If you aren’t you see just under 100,000. Which means he has AN ACCOUNT.
