Ben Whishaw

As you can probably tell I’ve been slacking on the Photoshop front lately. (I blame tumblr, comic books, and work)

But I have a new wallpaper (yay).

Ben Whishaw as Raziel for my Supernatural AU headcanon

As some of you may know I’m not overly religious but have always been fascinated by religious iconography (one thing hyde and I have in common), particularly with the subject of saints and Angels.

One of my favorite Angels I’ve come across is the Archangel Raziel from the Kabbalah. Known as the “Keeper of Secrets” and the “Angel of Mysteries,” Raziel is attributed to have been the author of the Sefer Raziel HaMalach a book which is said to contain the secrets of all knowledge (and believed to be a book of magic). When Adam and Eve were expelled from Heaven it was Raziel who gave them the book so they can return “Home” and better understand God. His brethren, disturbed by his actions, stole the book from Adam and cast it into the sea. God chose not to punish Raziel and returned the book to Adam. Over time that book was passed down to Enoch (who became the Angel Metatron) and later to Noah (by the Archangel Raphael).

With that backstory out of the way let’s go onto my head canon.

I have this Supernatural AU headcanon that the angel that told Castiel, “Don’t step on that fish Castiel. Big plans for that fish.” was his older brother Raziel. Raziel, being the only Angel other than Metatron to stand directly in God’s presence, knew all His secrets would have known of His plans (to create mankind as well as to leave the Host). Like his Father, (and later his brother, Castiel) Raziel would come to love mankind. After God left and Lucifer fell, Heaven wasn’t the same. His Brothers and Sisters argued amongst each other and disliked their Fathers new children. With his Father gone and his family splintered Raziel and Metatron left for Earth to live around humans. Since Raziel knew his Father was leaving and Metatron recorded the names of all the prophets both know that Chuck Shurley is their Father.

Wow this got away from me quick.

And for those with who want a wallpaper with no meta. (although I forgot to make a version without the blue eyes edit. Sorry)
