February 2008

Summary: In 2008, Dean takes over his late grandfather’s tailor shop in Normal, Illinois, and discovers an old leather flight jacket in the attic. A hand-painted set of wings on the back, the name Novak, and a three-quarters sewn circle of red cotton are the only clues he has to the jacket’s origins, and he enlists his historian brother to help him find the owner.

It doesn’t take long for Sam to trace the jacket to Lieutenant Castiel Novak–a pilot who lived in Dean’s apartment until his mysterious disappearance a few years after WWII–and what little information they find about him is fascinating. The guy was a stone cold badass. A stone cold fox, too, if the grainy old newspaper photo is anything to go by.

It’s to be expected that Dean idly wishes he could have known the man as he closes the annoyingly unfinished circle of thread on the jacket.

Less expected, however, is that wish coming true.

Pairing: Lin-Manuel x Reader

Summary: All of the in-between moments of a relationship, captured in the one-sided monologue that is voicemail. 


This has been sitting in my drafts for over a week whoops.

This isn’t the Untitled Garbage Fic that I’ve been rambling about but hopefully it will hold you over until that one is post-able.

Basically, I wanted to start getting words flowing again for the first time since we finished WYCH and that manifested in me choosing the absolute worst format for telling a narrative story. Honestly, this may or may not be the dumbest thing I’ve ever posted like @ becca why would you think this is a good structure for a fic? 

I hope you get a kick out of me fumbling my way out of writer’s block lmao.

Also ps shout out to @fragmentofmymind​ for being great at all times and for reading through this monstrosity for me (and providing that gif), she’s super awesome and super talented and if you aren’t following her already then honestly where have you been??

Word Count: does it even matter? the format on this is weird I’m so sorry.

The number you are calling cannot be reached. Please leave your message after the beep.

anonymous asked:

Have the J's taken a break from each other over the years? In other words, in your opinion, have they broken up for s period of time?

Hello, dear anon!

I’ve read about them breaking up in late 2007 during the writer’s strike, but I can’t make the timeline match up. The strike started in early November, which is when the J’s did their first Supernatural convention in Chicago. And it was hella coupley - see for yourself!

This convention was followed by a Thanksgiving celebration between the Padalecki family and J2 and a Christmas celebration of the Ackles+Padalecki families with J2. Doesn’t sound like they wanted to be apart, does it?

Between January and February of 2008, there were some suggestive statements made by Jared that lead me to think they hadn’t broken up. Here, check out what STT has on the period!

I was not in the fandom at this time, so I won’t pretend to know what happened back in the early days, but my friend @justanothersaltandburn presented an interesting thought. Here’s a quote from STT again:

…Jared stepped up to Jensen. Jensen stepped up to Jared in return. Jared got up in Jensen’s face. Jensen returned the favor and got right back in Jared’s face. Jensen then explained and proceeded to demonstrate the production crew’s reaction. He jumped back in his chair, looked very wide-eyed, covered his mouth with his hand and did a really loud, exaggerated gasp. He then said, Jared stormed off in the direction of his trailer and slammed the door. Jensen followed suit and stomped off to his trailer. After a couple of hours he left his trailer, walked over to Jared’s, knocked on the door and they hugged it out.

Presumably this one fight (which lead to Jared crying, as we recently learned) happened sometime while they were filming season 2. Quoting my friend here:

I always assumed the breakup was right after they started boning but before they started dating, so somewhere in s2 - so not really a “breakup” more of a ‘what are we doing - we work together’ moment. I kinda assumed that was that one big fight they had where Jensen found Jared crying in his trailer. 

Espcially because Jensen said they made that vow to never fight again - I think it was a vow to try and work things out as a couple

And that’s really the only way I can see Jensen making Jared start crying. If they “broke up” and were trying to just be friends but started arguing and it got too much for Jared and he just broke and Jensen realized how bad he fucked up and wanted to fix it before he lost his soulmate AND best friend. 

Now, this makes great sense to me. I’ve read that the cause of breaking up was because Jared had a hard time accepting his sexuality, but I don’t have any sources, so please don’t take that for the truth. I guess we won’t know for sure that they’ve been through a temporary break-up unless they one day write a book about the great adventure that was their closeted life. Oh well, one can dream!

Thank you for the interesting question, sweet anon! Please, take all of this as theorizing as we don’t have anything solid on this. I hope you have a very lovely day today!
