Why was Dean acting like an ass to Cas in season 6?

Don’t worry about it, though. We’ve all been there, and especially me. 

So, I won’t get into this a lot because season 6 has been discussed so much - some meta bloggers, like @elizabethrobertajones, even have weirdly specific tags for it (hers is ‘we don’t talk about season six’, which I always assumed was a veiled threat and, as it turns out, she thinks it was a very romantic season and we don’t discuss it nearly enough). 

There are various theories about how this season was built, and one of them is that it was supposed to turn Cas for good - to make him into an enemy and then eliminate him from the show, if I remember correctly, so the general consensus seems to be, Why wasn’t Dean more of an ass to Cas in season 6? This was a narrative centered on misunderstanding and miscommunication, and from Dean’s point of view, Cas was acting like a demented Callahan type for no reason, which, given angels were (they still are, but back then it was particularly noticeable) the most powerful creatures Dean’d ever encountered, was incredibly dangerous, not to mention unpredictable. Dean should have wanted to take Cas out just to be on the safe side, and if it had been anyone else, he would have done it. But, of course, deep bond and stuff. Even after Cas’ done the unforgivable and hurt Sam, possibly for good (protect Sam: remember that’s Dean’s genetic imprinting, and he steamrolls over both friends and enemies to get that done), Dean still has enough empathy and affection for Cas to come clean about his own feelings, and to try and help Cas, or even save him, if he can. That, I think, is unprecedented?

Something that doesn’t come up a lot as a reason why Dean was so awful to Cas during this season (and therefore, what I’ll focus on here) is how Dean constantly refuses to see Cas for what he is - not a human being, but an unknowable, alien, otherwordly creature

Now, from Dean’s perspective (at the beginning of season 4), angels are not monsters, or things he hunts, or things that exist in the real world; they are, instead much more close and personal than that. They are a cherished memory of his mother, and they are, therefore, an emotional concept which symbolizes peace and being safe and thinking that things could, one day, be alright. This is thrown into particular sharp contrast if we compare Dean’s religious beliefs to Sam’s - we know that Dean doesn’t believe in God, and therefore angels, and that he doesn’t pray. So, for him, angels really are this intimate, childish thing he’s allowed himself to cling to all these years: his mother’s voice, full of love, biding him goodnight. And when Cas shows up, it’s painfully clear that Dean takes his very existence personally, and he’s not at all happy with any part of it. Cas is important in the narrative because he sort of ‘pushes’ Dean out of his comfort zone; he challenges him, and makes him feel out of control in a life where Dean’s fought so hard to be in control at all times (because someone had to be). In a way, I wouldn’t be surprised if Cas’ overt sexual aggressiveness was planned for exactly this reason - because Dean’s been written as bi from the start, and yet this is a part of himself he keep a tight rein over, and Cas’ behaviour very nearly shatters all that. We’ve seen Dean’s uncomfortable with being flirted at, and he’s uncomfortable with anyone being too close to him (in every sense) and Cas, in this sense, is a nuclear reaction. All those secrets Dean’s fought so hard to protect from his brother and Bobby and everyone else - now there’s someone who knows them. All of them, including what he really thinks about himself and the shameful things he did in Hell and how they made him feel. And the fact Cas was always in Dean’s personal space was partly meant, I think, to symbolize this intrusion into Dean’s mind and soul. 

(It must have been terrifying, really.)

And the thing is, out of all the possible responses Dean could have to this gobsmacking, life-changing revelation (that God exists and angels exist and one of them saved him from Hell and is now following him around), what Dean chooses to do is extremely revealing: he starts treating Cas like a human

2 and 16 for nessian or feysand? Please and thank you 😘

2. Who is the big spoon/ Who is the little spoon?

Already done for Nessian!

Feysand - Rhys is the big spoon. Definitely. I think all the boys are? Except maybe Elucien… anyway! My version of Rhys is kind of the taller, leaner build and I think that just fits Feyre so well because she’s rather lean herself. So even though Rhys towers over her in a lot of ways, their bodies just sort of match. They’re compatible, ya know? And I think for them, spooning isn’t really a big thing unless its playful. Like if they’re having a tender moment, they’d rather face each other or lay with Feyre’s head on Rhy’s chest. But when he’s teasing and tickling and attacking and flat out fingering/fucking Feyre, he’s behind her enjoying all the different ways her body molds in front of him, locked between his arms. He loves how she wiggles inward on herself when he tickles her and she tries to get away. He loves how scrambles forward to escape his teasing when he’s being an absolute prick. And most of all, he loves the way her back arches, head falling against his chest while her fingers grip his shirt and the sheets when he makes her come.

16. Who is scared of thunderstorms?

I don’t think either Nesta or Cassian is scared of them, though Nesta isn’t fond of water in general. The noise doesn’t really bother her so much though and it kind of matches that hot temper she has burning in her at all times.

Feysand, on the other hand, I think neither would be scared nor inclined to a panic attack from it, but I think Rhys would be the more uncomfortable one. I think the rain is gloomy for him, a sign of winter and sadness and less happy times. He can’t go flying. A lot of the shops in Velaris close for the day getting no traffic. All the training spaces are outside and getting messy in the mud isn’t fun. He has to pretty much stay indoors all day moping about less pleasant things like work and the Hewn City, but…. Feyre makes it better. She’s used to rain. She had to hunt in every element growing up, so she knows how to handle it. And she knows it bums Rhys out. The second it starts raining, she’ll start the fire place going and lay a blanket out, warm something hot up to drink, and sit with Rhys in front of the fire while they read together and listen to the rain. One of my favorite Feysand headcanons is that she’ll eventually reach over while doing this and start massaging his knee. The first time she does it, Rhys pauses his reading and looks down at her curiously where her head is in his lap. “What are you doing?” “Massaging your knee.” “Why?” She blinks up at him. “Because it hurts.” “How on earth do you know it hurts right now?” She’ll sigh, reach up and stroke his face once with a fond smile, and resume her work. “You told the Bone Carver. You told him one thing no one else knew about you so that I wouldn’t have to. And it was that your knee hurts when it rains because you messed it up during the war. I thought-” Rhys leans down to cut her off with a quiet kiss. “Thank you.” “Keep reading.” “Love to.” Suddenly, thunderstorms don’t seem so miserable.

Phone call with my parents just now:

Mom: So Dad’s been looking at real estate in Pittsburgh, he wants to help you buy and fix up a house! What do you think about that?

Mom: So what’s going on with you?

Me: I…just spent a large amount of money on plane tickets to visit Finland and Germany this summer. *sweats*

tuafw when you never really thought about your special interests as "special interests" (even though they take up 90% of your thought process at all times) because you don't talk about them a lot, but the reason you don't talk about them is literally no one ever listens to you and someone important to you in the past said "you talk about that thing too much, let's talk about something else", so you never talk about your SIs because you're convinced that it would be annoying to even mention them

ew I’m so disappointed I went into that phase of feeling cringey for liking twenty one pilots when I could have just been enjoying myself

like hell, you do you, but the concert was lots of ridiculous fun and just good vibes all round and the songs were loud and energetic and awesome and I had a super great time with my best friend and it was just genuinely fucking lovely ok

i am going to let myself have this one nice thing

@thehipsterbubble suggested Marvel AU?

1 - Cisco is Iron Man. He doesn’t mean to be, it’s just - well - Dante found out about him working with the Flash and all that during their kidnapping and he basically freaked out and no matter how many times Cisco insists that he’s just back-room tech support, Dante insists he needs to defend himself better. So Cisco makes himself a suit, except it has a lot of tech built into it. He makes it something he can summon quickly. This enables him to save Dante from the car crash, flying him from the scene to the hospital. After that, though, the “Iron Man” is publically known and Barry wants to team up and everything and, well, it’s pretty cool, actually. AND he means he’s nothing like Reverb, even though they both shoot vibrations out of their hands because Reverb never built himself a super-suit.

2 - Laurel Lance joins them as the Black Canary again, because after her resurrection she gets to see the mess that Star City is in and just…she needs a break. Someone else has her name in that city, someone else has her place, and she just - she’s done. for now. Central extends her an offer and she’s happy to go. She’s more of a legal-minded Black Widow, but people start making “Avengers” jokes. She brings Thea with her as her Hawkeye, because wow, if anyone ever needed a break from Star City.

3 - The Avengers jokes get so much worse when Mick accidentally snaps at Sara in the middle of an event that takes place in the middle of Central in front of a bunch of cameras. References are made to “being stuck under the Atlantic since World War II” and “broke through brainwashing” and even “saved George Washington by myself” and “remember how I helped fight back the alien invasion?!”. Mick quits the Legends and returns to Central, only to find out that his reputation has changed from “crazy arsonist thief” to “Captain America”. When they finally manage to resurrect Len, some newspaper person gets the brilliant idea of putting the headline “Captain Cold - Winter Soldier - Returns!” and suddenly LEN’s a hero too, which, Mick!!!!

4 - Kara visits. She doesn’t know why everyone is gleefully greeting her as Thor, the God of Thunder, but she kinda likes it because they’re not, like, acting like she’s a must-be-worshiped sort of god? More of a “god that’s everybody’s buddy” sort of god, which, hey, COOL. Everyone’s super impressed with the heat-eyes and the frost-breath and they even give her a really cool hammer made of something that they call “dwarf star alloy” and it’s really funny because it’s way too heavy for everyone else to lift! She loves Earth-1. They’re all so sweet.

5 - Barry is now in charge of the Avengers. He’s totally cool with being Quicksilver except he’s obviously so much faster. Life is good. He wonders if he should, like, try to give Gideon a body to create Vision except that worked so badly in “Age of Ultron” he’s thinking maybe he shouldn’t. (Iris is the Scarlet Witch. She has no powers, but that doesn’t stop her from being an epic superhero. Also, like Barry, red is totally her color.)

6 -  Barry totally does insist on bringing in Ray to help out at one point so he can be Ant-Man. The newspapers go wild. Jax immediately claims the role of the Flaming Falcon because he loves Falcon. Falcon is awesome.

7 - Caitlin is the Hulk, except icier. She’s getting help for her rage issues! She swears!

anonymous asked:

Can someone please explain to me what aromantic is?

theres not a concrete definition but it really depends on who you ask. 

for a lot of people its simply defined by the lack of romantic attraction

though, a lot of people who are aro are willing to enter romantic relationships, or are interested in romance itself.

for many others, its defined for them as being uninterested towards the idea of being in a romantic relationship or being repulsed by romance as a whole.

hope this helped!

anonymous asked:

Naruto is problematic. I admit I didn't notice the flaws because, well, 700 chapters, you can be forgiven to miss out and forget some points, it's not as if the narrative doesn't try to spoonfeed you how you should think about everything. It took me a meta about Asuma's death and double standard to see the light, then the mess that is the Uchiha massacre sealed the deal. My real problem isn't the manga though. It's that the fans despite this say everything is perfect. That is worrying me.

They say everything is fine cos they get what they want in the ending. A lot of them didn’t even read the manga, they just watched pairing related episodes and fillers. If you try to talk to them about some details about jutsu or individual akatsuki members, you’ll see they don’t know the stuff.

Others are just shonen readers with the lowest expectations. They read battle manga to self insert in characters to feel badass. They don’t want to hear the hero is not on the right side, they don’t want to be confronted with the arguments about the MC’s goals being unheroic and shallow. They just need to know the MC kick some ass and he’s worshipped. They don’t read this stuff for morals.

For them, to admit there’s no hero in this story is to take away their enjoyment of this series. Often when they argue with anti, they don’t have an argument , they just vent their frustration: “You can’t hate the MC, other fandoms all root for the MC” “Just read the manga again, the manga says the massacre is right!”

But of course there’re also people like you, who just didn’t see counter POV in the fandom before, and thus you took whatever bullshit the manga fed you. That’s why we should counter these people, you never know, maybe some of them were just brainwashed by the fandom and never thought about the plot details.

Imagine: Jungkook (White Shirt)

Imagine you’ve gone shopping with Jungkook to get some new clothing. Not for you, but for him. He had decided he was in need of some new attire, but as far as you’d seen, he had only been looking at the same over-sized white shirts that already had at least two dozen of. 

“Jungkook” you said, “Why don’t you try something else?”

He looked at you blankly. “I like these ones though.”

“You have lots of them” you said, flicking through some other shirts on a rack. Then you added mischievously. “I bet you can’t get anything that isn’t over-sized or white.” Jungkook could never resist a competition. Especially if it came from you. 

“Oh yeah” he said, puffing out his chest slightly. “Just watch me.” And with that he moved over to the fitted black shirts. He thought he had won the bet, but little did he know that you’d achieved a much more sly mission.

- Quillfire

okay, let me put out some thoughts about that episode.

first, about mick and len: last week was so bad to them that the fact that len wasn’t using mick as a footstool this episode was pretty much a step up. like i don’t know what the writers are doing, because this week, they were trying to show that len does love mick- but then threw that away at the end, though not as cruelly as they did last week. what mick said to len was never how mick felt about len- and i think we can take this to mean that the legion len is someone mick doesn’t even know. that is nobody’s leonard snart. and i don’t know why the legion thought giving mick someone that clearly wasn’t his husband would help but WHATEVER

second, i know amaya will be alive next week- there was no way to win that scene. it hurt. it hurt a lot. it also established that mick is in love with her, and so is nate, and she loves both of them? where was this last season with kendra and carter and ray? you know what considering how that ended i take that back

third, i actually did have a decent time watching this week’s episode. okay? i did. it was FANTASTICALLY dark, instead of REALISTICALLY, which is where last week really fucked up- and it did the one thing this show excels at, because as you can see, everything else is garbage- it reminded us that these people are a family. mick made a plan, by himself, which is PEAK RICHARD GECKO, and tried to execute it, and failed, which again, PEAK RICHARD GECKO. but these people fucking love each other. the team relationships this episode were ON POINT. because NO ONE on the team thinks of that as their len- they knew len. and they loved him. and this is someone the legion tampered with.

anyway i literally cant stop listening to bts’ “not today” and doing jumping jacks so

Hands down one of the best couple ever made. Since starting Naruto, Shikamaru became my favorite after the chunin exams. And then Temari came along and I just fell in love with the two. I just love their relationship, even when platonic it was great and when it became romantic it was awesome. All the little jabs Temari made at Shikamaru, their praises for each other throughout the show and then just seeing them together was what got me to love them more and more. Though, the show wasn’t focused on them(seriously I’d watch every episode of Shikamaru Shippuden), just these little moments made my heart burst and killed me over and over. We won’t be able to see them as an established couple before Shikadai but hopefully we see a lot them as parents in Boruto.

i personally still think lockwood belongs in gryffindor mainly because the sorting hat takes your choice into account and you can’t convince me that ridiculous child wouldn’t try to fight his way into the most Heroic™ house

ok but for real though the person i end up with is gonna have to like scrubs because ??? that’s just My Show™ man. like i love a lot of tv shows and go through obsessions with them but scrubs is just…my main squeeze; my go to. i watch it when i’m sad or sick or need to feel a little less alone. i quote it every time i watch it and have my fav eps but can have any ep on in the background an be totally content. like that show has my whole heart. whoever i end up with just…..needs to know and accept that.

Sirius x Reader / Good Friends

(Some helpful background info: I went ahead and gave the reader a last name to add “depth” and also describe her as having curly hair. I’m trying to write for a diverse audience because I see a lot of fics where the reader is white but I think I can be progressive. If anyone has tips though I’d accept them quite gratefully.)

You are super cool and tight with Sirius but Lucius Malfoy is a lusty little nuisance which will come later in… Part Two!


He knew very little about her. Only that she was incredibly intelligent, top of the class and every professor’s favorite student. Clever as hell with a reputation for standing up for the little first through fourth years who got stomped on by the older Slytherins. She was very beautiful, her family was very old, therefore very rich and Lucius Malfoy was very interested.

I just want to say something real quick regarding Anon asks.

I get told that I should switch off the Anon asks a LOT ^^

But you know… even though there are rude Anons sometimes (I don’t answer them all), the majority of Anons are wonderful people. Really, really sweet people who support us and send us love, but they have their reasons for using Anon. 
And many people like to use Anon to send constructive criticism as well, which we appreciate a lot. 

Even if there are only 3/100 who are nice, it would be worth it. :3

As promised, but a bit behind schedule…more tourist pix of the newest alien world @rhodalle kindly made for me, that I am in the process of adjusting  some plantings for. (still a WIP for us)

Top pic is a park I added to show Rhodalle some of the Divadoom POP default flowers and grasses I’d like to have more of in this location.

I’ve decided to place underground surprise retreats. This land is big and even though there are roads, a lot of places can still only be reached by hiking way out. So..in some of the destination parks, fishing spots, excavation sites etc, I’ve hidden entrances to beautiful underground places where one may rest, eat and drink something and get out of the hot daytime sun.

I might just leave some of them a surprise for my story and for those who download this world when it is done… I won’t even show all of them in my story, so there will be some mysteries to uncover for you all.

Bottom pic is me once again going back to the Minty sky mod..I’m SO conflicted..what would be ideal is ONE sky mod that gives colorful, non-blue unearthly daytime skies with clear light AND Vivid sunsets that have a lot of orange-red in them…plus nighttime auroras in unusual colors.

I miss my sims 2 Murkimizu guys so probably gonna drop in on them tomorrow.

Also..P0RNY1 has replies to deliver….

good night for now.

Headcanon that Lapis projects out her dreams through her gem like Pearl did. Peridot likes to watch them; sometimes it's about her and pumpkin, and Lapis has a lot of flying dreams. Though whenever the nightmares about being trapped or Jasper show up and start upsetting her, Peridot nudges her awake and tells her she was tossing and turning.

I like this headcanon a lot.

Peridot definitely watches Lapis sleeping, so I could just picture her comforting Lapis if she had a nightmare.

Northeast Georgetown Hospital. Washington DC. May 16th 1999.

Mulder ran a trembling hand over his eyes, closing them for a second against the image before him.

Knowing that the action was essentially futile.

Nothing, not all the therapy, all the blanking, all the self induced Friday night alcoholic stupors would ever rid him of the sight of his partner hooked up to the ventilator before him.

His first though as he had entered this room for the first time was that this couldn’t possibly be his partner. She had seemed even smaller than she actually was, the unhealthy pallor of her skin suggesting that she was already dead.

He had almost been afraid to walk towards her, afraid that in doing so he would break the spell that held her hovering somewhere between life and death.

But eventually he had made the walk across the small space that separated them, grasping her ice cold hand in his, hoping against hope that some of his health, his warmth, would be transferred to her - as if his touch alone could bring her back to him.

A futile hope, that as the hours had turned in to days and still she lay, unmoving and unresponsive to the sounds around her.

A touch on his shoulder brought him back to the here and now, and through sleep deprived eyes he managed to focus on the hazy vision of the woman who had remained with him throughout this hellish week.

But right now he didn’t want her there and he closed his eyes again. Unwilling as yet to face this version of a reality he wanted no part of.

“Fox.”

The voice was gentle, cajoling, attempting to summon him from his own personal version of hell.
