So who gets to be Mulder and who gets to be Scully? (so damn pumped, The X-Files is kind of my one true love)
so this might be a little different than how some people have done it maybe BUUUTTTT
technically, castiel is mulder and dean is scully. personalities don’t line up though, because they are basically just who they are? dean is more sarcastic, like mulder, and cas is more serious, like scully - but castiel is the one who believes in the paranormal and dean is the one who is the skeptic (due a lot to his lack of desire to be like his father who he thinks is a whacko)
dean believes in physical evidence - what he can study and what he can SEE (this actually kind of holds true to spn, a little) and castiel is more…he believes it until it is proven to not exist because he sees no need to limit the possibilities.
SO, technically, cas is mulder, dean is scully, but they are very much still just cas and dean uwu
(also i love the x-files so much i’m actually rewatching it at this very moment haha)
