Dean's great idea – for Castiel to dress up as an angel for Hallowe'en – is not, apparently, as simple as it first appears.
"Dean, an angel's natural form is approximately the height of the Chrysler Building, which, along with our wing span, could impede my manoeuvrability. Our halos glow with the heat of a thousand stellar nucleii, and I would need access to all the Earth's largest nuclear reactors to recreate that level of fission, and would almost certainly blind or incinerate everyone within the hemisphere. Our wings also cannot be seen in your world as they are composed of ultra-physical cosmic cellular matter which does not exist in this dimension …"
Dean sighed wearily. "So white robe, cardboard wings and tinsel halo is out of the question then?"
