So, last week, the Collectress posted on Tumblr this hilarious entry into the online baby name wiki for “Castiel”. The post continues to get hits like whoa, because fans love to see messages hidden in plain sight, just for us to catch. It seems that the Supernatural fandom has taken to sharing our love of the show, in small ways, with the rest of the world. I became intrigued by this fandom about a year ago, when I finally caved and began watching the show. 9 seasons, one convention and a jarpad photo op later, I am still amazed at the lengths the SPN Family go to spread the word about the little show that could.
Yesterday, I sent out the call on Twitter to my most diligent Supernatural fan followers, simply asking for examples of “easter eggs”, or intentional inside joke/message hidden on the web, that implicitly refer to Supernatural. Of course, we picked the top 5 Destiel references, because they are just so fun and BECAUSE REASONS. While Wikipedia and Urban Dictionary have had SPN fans hijack many a definition, it doesn’t stop there. These are some of my favorite references to the show, hidden in plain sight, for any non-hunter to come across. If you know of more, please link me in the comments and I will add them to the list.

Looking for a baby name? Look no further than “Castiel”, the Angel of Thursday who “has a profound bond with a man by the name of Dean Winchester” whose name means “face of sexual desire” in ancient Enochian. Notice the nicknames–baby in a trench coat? So. Much. Yes.
