1/2 I remember Adam saying many times that OUAT wasn't about ships, but it's really amazing how the entire show has distorted, warped & twisted itself to accommodate oq & cs. Like, that's all the show is about now. No wonder ratings have tanked so bad. And they renewed it? Sigh. I guess they are so invested in it at this point (money spent, syndication, etc) they gotta keep going.

2/2 Its pretty obvious in hindsight A&E blew their creative load in S1 - it’s been downhill ever since. It’s been a massive disservice to the characters & fairytales (Regina’s story is a travesty), so I hope they end it after S5. If the writers have any self respect anyway (hoping a lot I know!). Remember, this was to be a new modern retelling? What’s new or modern about straight white people getting their happy ending? That’s a tale as old as time! (I’d also love to see Lana in a real TV show).

I wonder how many of my thoughts have gone to waste, how many thoughts have I lost that didn’t materialise into reality, I wonder what I may think tomorrow, will I think at all will I overthink till I explode? the small voice inside me that nobody hears but probably the most important voice of all, I guess in hindsight my thoughts are me, I am them sometimes I wish they’d stop but I guess I’ve realised all they ever do is speak truth, as it’s easier to be truthful when nobody else can hear them but you. love your voice, even the voice you try to ignore it speaks volumes.

So last night in the very little sleep I had, i ended up dreaming that Berman and I were having a late night on the town. And somehow during the night we were like ‘LOL, dare you to get drunk” to each other. Next thing I knew, we almost started a brawl in a mall with some lady, and then we blew up Niagara Falls. 
We were so offended that the news got our names wrong, as they called us: ‘Mal Constantine’ and ‘Ty the Creator’. 

In hindsight, Berman, i think we dodged a bullet there.

Hi Holly. Just wanted to say that I was right there with you at the start of season 8 thinking that maybe Sam had moved on, or at least was trying to (as opposed to trying to survive/find a purpose in life). And I do think that when we met him after that year had passed with Dean in purgatory, he /was/ starting to move on. Again in hindsight, going through that and being dragged back in really screwed him up, which I think he was trying to distance himself from, hence his assertions about dying.

Yeah, looking over the situation now, I can see how him leaving Amelia and returning to Rufus’ cabin was maybe (or could have been) the actual point at which he was beginning to move on from Dean’s death properly and really figure out what he wanted to do with his life, figure out HOW he wanted to life his life (as opposed to ‘running’ from those things, like he was with Amelia). Only then suddenly Dean WAS BACK and that potential for visualising and accepting a life without (or at least outside of) Dean was derailed. 

So, yeah, since he never actually reached the part where he got over Dean’s death, all the memories of Dean dying is him not being able to cope, him falling apart or losing himself in dark and desperate attempts to get Dean back. So, yeah, makes sense that at this point he would be terrified of life without Dean, because he simply can’t see himself ever being ABLE to live without Dean.

21 People On What They Would Tell Their 19-Year-Old Selves
  • Jonathan, 55:There is no such thing as “the only one”. You will meet lots of “the ones”. Only commit when the timing is right for the both of you – that can take years for some, and that’s okay.
  • Miranda, 24:Drop pre-med.
  • Isaac, 48:Deodorant does not count as a shower, and that haircut only looked good on Bon Jovi.
  • Anya, 42:Make the conscious decision to be happy, and then stick with it. Society will do everything in its power to convince you that your personal happiness is dependent on something external – beauty, success, wealth, etc. – it isn’t.
  • Parker, 55:60% of the things you think are important now won’t matter a whit to you by the time you reach 50. The trick is to figure out the important 40% and work it.
  • Megan, 34:He doesn’t love you, and you will be okay.
  • Peter, 58:Don’t let anything stand in your way of taking part (or all) of your junior year abroad. You’ll never again have quite the same opportunity to experience a foreign land, for an extended period of time, in your youth. It is destined to be one of the most memorable aspects of your life.
  • Eleanor, 67:Talk less. Listen more.
  • Donald, 27:There’s a huge difference between who you want to be and who everyone around you wants you to be. Figure out which is which.

  • Donald, 38:You don’t have to grow up to be the dad you never had.

  • Joshua, 55:Women love to laugh.
  • Annabelle, 38:Drugs are not beautiful, glamorous or opulent. They are not a remedy, a solution, a cure-all, or a cure-anything.
  • Colin, 50:You miss so much life when you sleep until 3 PM. Wake up to see sunrises; they are the most stunning of nature’s masterpieces.
  • Eleanor, 26:Eating two pints of ice cream won’t make you happy. Neither will sprinting 10 miles. Be nice to yourself.
  • Aaron, 52:Don’t forget to ask that girl in the Oberlin library what kind of perfume she’s wearing. You’ll buy it for her in 20 years.
  • Scarlett, 54:Don’t be afraid to be yourself. Those that get you will love you, those that don’t, well, their loss. Just remember: Wherever you are, it’s a party.
