“I am really moved and motivated by things that occur that are unjust. I’ve always hated people trampling on other people. I was in quandary, a philosophical quandary, because I tought, if I’m not my brother’s keeper, who am I? Where does my life end and my sense of responsibility for other lives begin?”  Listen to Me Marlon (2015) dir. Stevan Riley

10x23 “Brother’s Keeper”
“Take these. And one day, when you find your way back, let these be your guide. They can help you remember what it was to be good, what it was to love.”

These photographs have been an integral part of the season. They showed up when Sam was trying to cure Dean from being a demon, Dean held onto them after Sam and Cas had cured him and their importance and value was even more highlighted when the Stynes were about to birn them, destroy that last symbol for family. Before the season had started I had posted a dream scenario of mine in which ary is the only one to get through to Dean and get him to stop. And what we got in the finale came mightily close. The same way that Sam reminded Crowley of his true nature one episode prior, here he reminded Dean of who he truly is and what has always been his most beautiful asset: his heart and his immeasuarble ability to love. By showing Dean the pictures of him and Mary he reminded him not only of family,of the small boy who had to grow up way too fast, but most of all he reminded Dean of love and how it feels to be loved and to love in return and in particular how special a mother’s love is (and this was brilliantly executed and contrasted wih Crowley and Rowena and how Crowley had to grow up with no love at all). I love how in the end here, Sam provided the tools for Dean to remember love, to listen to his heart, how Mary was the one to get through to him - when without saying a word , but just by being there - and how in the end it was Dean, supported by the ones who love him, who saved himself. Even if only for a short while…

Day 0:

Picture this: a bluebird, in a gilded cage. The door is ajar, but the bird keeps to the perch on the other side of it, huddled. Its wings are pristine, legs in perfect health, but it does not fly away. It sings a singular note: melancholic.  On the floor: its dead companion. The blood on the bluebird’s beak is still fresh from where it has torn its mate’s throat apart.

Poetic, isn’t it? Sasuke wishes it was that clean, that elegant, but like everything in his fucking life so far, the singular moment he’d been waiting for is disgustingly pathetic and tainted red by his brother’s doing. There’s no sun parting the rainclouds or people waiting on the sidelines, there’s just him with a hell of a lot of broken bones holding together bruised flesh (he is so tired), and there’s his - brother, Sasuke can’t divorce the word from the monster that fell.

He slides down the stone, limbs lead, but when he turns to look at the body he realises: Itachi’s still bleeding from a gash on his arm, a sluggish but steady drip down to the stone below. He sucks in a breath, shoulders going rigid, is the fucker playing dead, but his brother doesn’t move even after three agonizing minutes of anticipating death. He’s alive. He’s still alive, after the whole spectacle of it all. Sasuke can still feel the cold tips of Itachi’s fingers brush against his forehead and cheek like he’s tracing all the tears he’d made Sasuke shed.

Keep reading

When you’re 11, and your bestfriend says ‘I would take a bullet for you,’ he is saying 'I would trade my life for yours. This breath is all I have to give.’ The word love is never mentioned, but it hangs there like dark matter, holding your worlds together. When your bestfriend says 'the next time they mess with you, you come get me,’ he is saying 'you are safe here. We ride together, we die together. I am my brother’s keeper, a fortress to protect you.’

…May these lines be a bridge as our bond is bunker, a safehouse. All we have ever needed to survive.

Project Castor and the Mark of Cain

9 ¶And the Lord said unto Cain, Where is Abel thy brother? And he said, I know not: Am I my brother’s keeper? (Genesis 4:1-16)

In Christianity, the Mark of Cain was a punishment inflicted on Cain for murdering his brother Abel. What the actual “Mark of Cain” is, is up for debate among religious scholars. Some believe it to be an outward mark that other’s could see. Some scholars believe it was a loss or removal of blessings or separation from God and his blessings. Other’s believe it was a literal curse that was handed down through his posterity. (x)

For Orphan Black, the Mark of Cain manifests itself physically. Castor is “cursed” with something in the brain that causes them to “glitch” and loose control of themselves. Castor 1.0 was Abel. The result of Henrik stealing Castor original material to create a clone of his own. He died and his brothers in Project Castor 2.0 lived. But their existence is fraught with the effects of their heritage putting their lives at risk. 

But Castor isn’t only manifesting the Mark of Cain as with their genetic defect. Castor also shows evidence of this visually as well. Rudy is very obviously scarred. And while we have yet to see it, we have been told that Miller has a prosthetic leg. (x) Finally, the last allusion to the Mark of Castor is auditory. Mark is the member of the group that was undercover in a religious sect. His name is not only biblical in the fact that he is a literal mark: His name denotes that he is a version of the larger Castor project (x), as well as a direct nod to the Mark of Cain and his religious infiltration mission.

Finally, the Mark of Cain metaphor is switched up in that the motivation of all the Castor clones is to be their “brother’s keeper”. Unlike Cain, everything the Castor group does; from Rudy killing Seth or Mark going undercover is solely to help the others in the group. Sacrificing themselves if need be in order to achieve mission success and a cure for the others. 

Of course, this is ultimately Sarah’s story and having these biblical allusions and metaphors is Castor only emphasize what’s going on in Leda. The Leda perspective turns the narrative on it’s head with a female perspective on the “curse”. Biblical stories of woman are limited, but using Castor as our entry point to further explore the illness in Project Leda frames the story in a familiar way that allows the writers to use that perspective as context for their own: a feminist perspective on family, siblings, and the sins of the previous generation affecting their posterity. A warning for those that try to “play God”. 

*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

* Just to clarify, I’m not saying that physical or mental ANYTHING in the real world are a result of sin or lack of favor/curse from God. I’m keeping things strictly in the universe of Orphan Black and metaphor.

Am I my brother's keeper?

Am I my brother’s keeper? This is the first recorded question uttered by man and the answer is YES. If we are not our brother’s keeper then there is no point to civilization. 

Universal brotherhood is what God intended. A world without brotherhood and sisterhood is a fallen world which is like the paradigm, the reality we live in today. 

We have to come to the realization that we are one: jealousy, contentions, greed, immorality, control, power, murder must be overcome before humanity can truly blossom like a fruitful tree. 

Let’s stop competing with each other and stop coveting what celebrities and the rich possess and start seeking the strength and the humility that the poor possess. 

The realms of our EGO are dark, bleak, tragic and lead to inevitable destruction and absolute spiritual death and separation from God. 

Let’s learn from what the Bible tells us: 

1 But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. 

2 People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy,

3 without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, 

4 treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God— 

5 having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with such people.

-2 Timothy 3

Now if this is not the truth I don’t know what is. People, it’s time to kill this paradigm. You know what you must do. Together we can bring about global change, physical and spiritual global change. We can do whatever we believe we can do, this is FACT. Let’s stop doubting ourselves and realize that God is with us.

What we tell ourselves dictates our whole entire existence, when we realize this that is when our transformation truly begins. 

God bless…

Genesis 4:8-16

“Cain said to his brother Abel, "Let us go out to the field.” And when they were in the field, Cain rose up against his brother Abel, and killed him. 

Then the LORD said to Cain, “Where is your brother Abel?” He said, “I do not know; am I my brother’s keeper?

And the LORD said, "what have you done? Listen; your brother’s blood is crying out to me from the ground! And now you are cursed from the ground, which has opened its mouth to receive your brother’s blood from your hand. 

When you till the ground, it will no longer yield to you its strength; you will be a fugitive and wanderer on the earth." 

Cain said to the LORD, "My punishment is greater than I can bear! 

Today you have driven me away from the soil, and I shall be hidden from your face; I shall be a fugitive and wanderer of the earth, and anyone who meets me may kill me." 

Then the LORD said to him, "Not so! Whoever kills Cain will suffer a sevenfold vengeance.” And the LORD put a mark on Cain, so that no one who came upon him would kill him. 

Then Cain went away from the presence of the LORD, and settled in the land of Nod, east of Eden.“

Caibel week, day 4: “my brother’s keeper”.

In I remember correctly, in the Bible, when asked where Abel was, Cain, who had already killed him, answered something like “Am I my brother’s keeper?”.

I don’t really think Cain would ever do harm to Abel, but I have the feeling that this secret mission may lead to something bad that could happen to Abel. ):

Btw, this drawing is based on Mucha’s Medea! And it’s. A. METAPHOR.

The only thing I am disappointed about is the fact that Dean isn’t floating in space right now. Like can you imagine Dean and his rage floating in space?

  •  Punching stars
  •  Suntanning on the sun. I mean he can’t be killed right? He’d sit on it on a lounge chair with one of those reflectors and sunglasses. 
  • He’d write stupid shit on Mars and make astronauts think life is on it. Lets be honest, Dean is the little shit to do that. 
  • He’d also be a super hero and destroy meteors coming to earth.
  • We’d see Dean on TV because they got pictures of a man floating in space.

Like come on, give me space Dean.
