So here we are, it’s just a couple of weeks now until the season finale and while some are getting excited, for others it’s a nervous time….and not in a good way. This is when the shit typically hits the fan, when storylines collide, some come to their conclusion (usually the big bad dies) and others often continue or lead to further storylines. Dean is currently neck deep in it this with the Mark of Cain, lots to be excited about right? Yes, except for those of us who unfortunately still remember Swan Song, and how Dean’s Michael story ended with his role essentially handed over to Adam, there is a fear that history may repeat itself. We’re still bitter, in case you can’t tell.
We also remember Purgatory, a fantastic opportunity to take Dean in a whole new direction, opening up so many possibilites…only for it to come to a pre-mature end in the middle of season 8, leaving Dean with no real storyline or role beyond the “guilty cheerleader” - Jensen’s words.
We don’t want either of these scenerios to happen again. Sam’s demon blood storyline lasted for several years, followed by his Hell Cage storyline followed by Souless Sam, then the wall before finishing with Hellucifer…why not the same for Dean?
Thanks to the fandom putting their collective feet down and speaking up since last year, the writers have finally come up with a storyline, a bona fide mytharc for Dean this season, and we don’t want to see it go to waste. Dean has succeeded in killing Abaddon, but what then? (Honestly I hoped she’d stay alive at least a bit longer actually, but that’s another discussion). Surely this could lead to something else…the after affects? Demon Dean? There is also his recovery and redemption, which needs to be dealt with properly. That’s why we are continuing with the campaign, to Keep Deans Arc for Season 10.
We’ve been using the hashtag #KeepDeansArcS10 in our tweets, and sending postcards, and would love for all you out there who have enjoyed watching Dean deal with the Mark of Cain and Abaddon and Crowley, who want to see this new focus on Dean continue, his storyline be dealt with fully for the next season and beyond, to join us in letting the writers and producers know.
Please feel free to use the postcards in the links above, or get creative and make your own..let the Mark of Cain inspire you.
We also have an account with Touchnote for those of you who cannot afford to print out or post the postcards themselves. However if you want to make a donation then please do with the use of paypal, as our funds are not limitless. (Please do not use Credit Cards as the site will save your details).

The address to send postcards to is

c/o Holly Ollis
Warner Brothers Network
4000 Warner Blvd, Building 140
Burbank, CA, 91522
You can use other addresses, but since filming has finished in Vancouver for season 9 the most effective would be the writers’ address in California.
It’s simple to use, just click on postbox once you have signed in and you will see the other postcards that have already been sent. Then just click on copy card and write your own message. The website will post it for you.
Season 9 has been completed, but already the writers will be planning season 10. Now is the time to let them know your hopes and expectations, and remind them of how important Dean is both to the show and it’s fandom.
Thank you everyone.
KEEP DEANS MYTHARC SEASON 10
