Aah, 1.15, another Humans Being Monstrous episode.
(skips all the weirdness about Dean’s missing hour in the bar because so much has been written on what Dean was doing in the men’s room for an hour already…)
DEAN: Yeah, Dean. Kind of the black sheep of the family. Handsome, though.
(what the heck does the officer think of him after he says this?)
(sorry, sorry. I said I wouldn’t harp on this stuff in this post I just can’t help myself)
(and oh gosh Sam in a cage, and Jenkins in a cage, and Sam’s gone to rescue Jenkins and it didn’t actually work… So Jenkins tells him, “Well, no offense, but this is a piss-poor rescue.” Which is pretty much exactly what Sam tells Cas when he finds out Cas didn’t actually pull ALL of him from The Cage…)
So Dean’s been lying to Kathleen the whole time (because hey she’s the cops and he’s both a murder suspect and legally dead), but when she has reason to doubt his fake identity he pulls the whole “Look into my eyes and tell me if I’m lying about this” thing. He’s practically radiating honesty and earnestness at her about his need to find Sam.
DEAN: Right. I was wondering—why are you helping me out, anyway? Why don’t you just lock me up? KATHLEEN: My brother, Riley, disappeared three years ago. A lot like Sam. We searched for him, but—nothing. I know what it’s like to feel responsible for someone, and for them—Come on. Let’s keep at it.
Family sticking together for the right reasons vs the Benders…
SAM: I don’t know. They let Jenkins go, but that was some sort of trap. It doesn’t make any sense to me. DEAN: Well, that’s the point. You know, with our usual playmates, there’s rules, there’s patterns. But with people, they’re just crazy.
PA: You ever killed before? DEAN: Wh– (laughs) Well, that depends on what you mean. PA: I’ve hunted all my life. Just like my father, his before him. I’ve hunted deer and bear—I even got a cougar once. Oh boy. But the best hunt is human. Oh, there’s nothin’ like it. Holdin’ their life in your hands. Seein’ the fear in their eyes just before they go dark. Makes you feel powerful alive.
THESE ARE THE WORDS OF A KILLER.
That is so not what Dean is, no matter how many people keep telling him that in s12.
Like the Benders, The Winchesters have also hunted all their lives, just like their father (and unbeknownst to them at this point, also just like their mother, and her entire freaking family before them). Dean also takes pleasure from the hunt, from the kill… but he doesn’t hunt the innocent, and that’s an incredibly distinct difference here.
Just like Kathleen, Dean underestimated the little girl. “Little girl” doesn’t equate automatically with “innocent.” But Dean’s first impulse isn’t to save himself at all costs. He won’t just kill in cold blood or for convenience.
DEAN: Never do that again. SAM: Do what? DEAN: Go missin’ like that. (SAM laughs.) SAM: You were worried about me. DEAN: All I’m sayin’ is, you vanish like that again, I’m not lookin’ for ya. SAM: Sure, you won’t. DEAN: I’m not. (SAM chuckles.)
(of course they look for each other in perpetuity, except that time with Purgatory…)
So this episode covered family, what binds family together (hunting!), but from two entirely different moral perspectives. Also, people can be far, far more monstrous than any literal monster.
Winchesters: Saving people, hunting things
Benders: Hunting people, saving things (like a jar of teeth and a mobile made of human bones, and a scrapyard full of the cars of their victims)
1. Favorite Star Wars movie? Oh dear, okay. ANH. It has Vader, Tarkin, and farmboy Luke.
15. Top 5 favorite droids?I’m assuming this means characters, as opposed to types of droids. Artoo, Huyang (Can’t go wrong with David Tennant), AZI-3, Threepio, and the commando droids (I just love watching those things fight).
16. Top 5 favorite troopers? Commander Fox, Rex, Fives, Wolffe, and Kix
21. Where would you live in the Star Wars universe? I’m not sure. I like the cold, and I would want to be able to raise a family there. Alderaan, maybe? Pre-Empire days, obviously.
22. Who would you be in the Star Wars universe? Weird question. Like, specific character wise? I have no idea……..probably Chopper.
39. 1 lightsaber, 2 lightsabers, double lightsaber, or 2 double lightsabers? Considering how uncoordinated I already am, I would say one lightsaber would be plenty for me to deal with.
Aaand it’s done!! Thank you to everyone followed the update on twitter. you made the experience x100 better!! I came up with the story hour by hour, so I’m glad I could make a sense of this mess of strips :D It was a nice experience, but really tiring, time to sleep for me :D
I got quite some asks a while ago about “What does my fave say about me???” and I wanna answer all of them and also no new chapter which is crushing:
Class 1-A: Alphabetized
Aoyama Yuuga: you have horrible self-esteem issues and cover it up by attracting attention to yourself because you want the attention but have absolutely no idea what to do with it once you have it
Ashido Mina: a loud passionate person with a fondness for dress-up (everyday wear or costumes, it doesn’t matter) and people are shocked to find out your level of nerdiness because like… “you don’t look like a nerd…”
Bakugou Katsuki: a spitfire on the inside and sometimes on the outside. You spicy af and people tell you to tone it down. Was a genius in middle school but then found out about everyone else catching up. Has a SUPER fear of failure.
Hagakure Tooru: A cute little flower who blends into the background but never fear, all that gossip is here! People forget you a lot, but you’re used to it. Gotta keep that positive attitude!!!!
Iida Tenya: People tell you you’re weird a lot and they also tell you you’re annoying but you’re just trying to help. Smart af when it comes to what you know, but pretty clueless otherwise.
Jirou Kyouka: You have that one piece of clothing you love dearly and have owned for years and people are shocked to see you whenever you’re not wearing it. Actual music hoe. *takes out one earbud* whut
Kaminari Denki: Admit it you’re an irl troll face but deep down you’re actually the rarest of pepes. Just wants to be loved by friends but you also want a date to prom so jokingly-for-real ask people out on dates. It hasn’t really worked.
Kirishima Eijirou: You love The Gays™ or are irl gay yourself. You’re an actual cinnamon roll but you’re hella burnt on the inside so you’ve got a spine of steel. You love your friends and aren’t afraid to say it. HUGS FOR EVERYONE
Kouda Kouji: You little animal lover you~ <3 ! Shy and sweet, people tell you that you don’t talk much but you’re just anxious. Will talk about your passions until you pass out but if it’s in front of strangers then NO THANKS
Midoriya Izuku: Actual cinnamon roll just trying your best, you’re smart with what you’re passionate about but that also makes you a giant nerd. You have that one weird little quirk that nobody understands so you hide it a lot.
Mineta Minoru: You’re goofy and the squad clown but also naive af. Might not be noticeable on the outside but UR A SINNER HARRY. You read way too much fanfiction because actual porn feels weird/ is too much
Ojiro Mashirao: You like to stick to the background but you also want people to notice when you’ve achieved something so you’re stuck in this cycle of “I want this to look good but also original but not too weird but also cool but also…”
Satou Rikkidou: Your resting bitch face almost has yourself fooled but there’s nothing that can comfort you like food and your best bro can. Is really good at cooking. Part of the “Support Everyone But Forgets Yourself” Squad.
Sero Hanta: You come off as harmless but deep down you’re a disgusting memer waiting for the perfect moment to pun and meme. Your health is important, look at this article you printed off just for your friends’ cringe
Shouji Mezou: You’re quiet at first but hella observant so you can tell the moment to open up and let people see how harmless you are on the inside. Gentle soul who only want the best for others. Will kill/die to protect others.
Todoroki Shouto: You’ve been deeply hurt by someone you looked up to and you know you’re still messed up. You’re trying to grow away from the pain but it’s hard. A little wrapped up in your head, you want to love others again.
Tokoyami Fumikage: You know every word to “Welcome to the Black Parade”. You like really cool, dark and edgy things so your inner emo is Strong™. People tell you that you need to cool your chill and warm up. flip them the bird.
Tsuyu Asui: IRL perfect friend, you are the mom friend/ big sis friend of the group who makes sure everyone stays together and doesn’t do stupid shit. At least, doesn’t do stupid shit without you. Pokèmon was a lifestyle, once.
Uraraka Ochako: Looks innocent on the outside but will punch a guy if they step over that very clear line. Friends and family are to be protected at all costs. You’re so cheap, people laugh but in reality you’re scared to spend money.
Yaoyorozu Momo:Smart af and pretty too, you’re so used to things coming easily to you that you panic as soon as something seems hard. In group projects you’re the one that does 95% of the work. You’re (kinda) ok with this.
Alright, I covered Class 1-A first, but if your fave isn’t on this list, or you wanna look up your other faves, I left it all under the cut!
All Might/ Toshinori Yagi: Actual cinnamon roll trying their best to be a good guardian and lead those who are lost. Is the actual biggest dork around. Tries to be cool but simply… isn’t. We love you anyways. Pls take care of yourself too.
Eraserhead/ Aizawa Shouta: you’re extra salty in need of a nap and still care about everyone around you but still like to fuck with them to show you care. Is a cat person and feels like you can only get along with other cat people.
