So my burning questions is - Castiel: top or bottom???

I am fascinated how in most fandoms, characters get pegged (so to speak...) as a top or bottom and then the majority of fic conforms to that. To the extent that some people feel the need to warn for variations - I love seeing warnings for bottom!Jared!.

With Castiel there seems to be a bit more variation. Despite Dean being so firmly entrenched in fic as a bottom, I've seen more than a few fics where he's ploughing that angel arse.

What is it about a character that helps define them as a top or bottom for you? Are you happy for characters to switch, or is it very much part of what defines them for you.

Interestingly I came across this gay blogger's observations from November 2005, which fascinated me given they came from outside of the fandom hive:

So Dean is the super control freak “top”. He has to be driving at all times. I think there was a scene when Sam tried to drive, and Dean just couldn’t handle that. It’s like taking away his balls.

So Sam rides in the passenger seat. He’s the soft spoken bottom boy, always staring out the window in this deep, dreamy state of mind. No idea what the hell he’s thinking about, but I suspect he is wondering where this relationship is going, and if Dean will ever say “I love you”.

(said blogger was later shocked to discover fangirls were actually writing Wincest - LOL)

But back to my initial enquiry: Castiel - top or bottom?

Hollywood Celebs Shoot Hoops To Help Canyon High

Several Hollywood celebrities will be playing against Canyon High School staff in a basketball game to raise money for the Associated Student Body.

The game will be at 6 p.m. on Saturday, March 13 and will also feature a half time show and autograph session. Tickets are available at the Canyon High School ASB office for $8 or $10 at the door.

The Hollywood Knights Celebrity Basketball Team's possible line up is: Jesse Metcalfe and James Hyde from NBC's Passions, Jared Padalecki Gilmore Girls, Josh Henderson One on One, Nick Carter from The Backstreet Boys, DJ D-Wrek Wild N' Out, Aaron Carter, Michael Copon One Tree Hill, and Cody Linley from Hannah Montana.

so you know, if you live somewhere in the western half of the US you might want to fork out a tenner to see JARED IN SHORTS.

ETA: rereading post I notice they say Jared Padalecki Gilmore Girls. Now he did play a match with the Hollywood Knights back then, so maybe they've just recycled the old lineup as speculation here.

ETTA: Yes looks like a false alarm sadly. Thanks to wendy for the link to the actual Padaleckiless lineup

i'm not with them...oh wait

sharpest_rose was reporting from the Adam Lambert signing in Sydney yesterday and reports that:

somebody ahead of me at the Adam signing gave him a kangaroo scrotum purse. I still cannot imagine a more awkward gift to present to somebody you did not actually know. "OH HAY HERE IS A MARSUPIAL NUTSACK I LOVE YOU."

damn...there goes my idea of a present for Misha. Maybe I can go with this tasteful Aussie gift...
