Amara and season 11 just don’t work without Destiel

Based on my thoughts and seeing a lot of others thinking the same I went through and rewatched season 11 focusing heavily on Amara’s scenes, in the end putting them back to back to really look in detail and wowzers, that was eye opening.

As well as all the huge amounts of subtext throughout the season as usual, if you watch all of Amara’s screen time and follow her interactions with Dean and her overall storyline (which is the whole of season 11′s overall storyline, just saying) it just does not function without Dean and Cas’s bond. Without Destiel this whole season just… doesn’t work.

So, just looking at the obvious parts (I won’t go into too much detail as I wrote a whole other post about Amara as an exposition for Dean’s feelings here….).

The real ‘upping the game’ in the exposition of Dean and Cas’s feelings towards each other and, coincidentally, the overall arc of the season, comes from THIS POINT, where Amara is textually and visually put forward as a love interest for Dean. There is a clear parallel of Dean/Amara and Dean/Cas throughout the season 11 narrative and it is from THIS point that both Amara and Cas are portrayed romantically, directly mirrored and used in each others’ narratives. This is not a coincidence. 

If it were more referenced beforehand perhaps I may be a little more forgiving and allow more of a ‘platonic profound bond’ reasoning but it is precisely because of this clear move into a love interest role for Amara that Cas and Amara are then clearly portrayed as ‘good bond/love’ and ‘bad bond/love’. One is forced on Dean against his will and he clearly rejects it, one is at its core based on free will and he clearly is doing everything he can to save Cas, even going up against Amara to do this, a very well done full circle of parallels leading into each other… *ahh narrative tie-ins and mirrors - sighing with contentment*.

SO… Since the midseason finale and this scene:

We have the Amara/Love monster who tells us textually that she can “feel the love that you feel”, she uses the particular and relatively precise and uncommon word ‘longing’ which we all now clearly associate with Cas and praying, she talks about his feeling shame… Then moves onto Amara, reminding him of Dean’s way ‘out’, of the ‘bliss’.  For me although this isn’t Amara, the love monster does actually use the words “who I am doesn’t matter” and therefore it’s clear that the information she’s giving us is what is important. This is a clear exposition.

Dean then clarifies to Sam that “to call it desire or love…it’s not that”. So the love monster from Love Hurts - who was talking about Dean’s love and longing and shame… She uh, wasn’t picking up on love for Amara as Dean has explicitly told us that is not what he is feeling. So…. who might it have been referring to? 

The attempting expelling of Lucifer. Is just so much Destiel and has been covered so many times. All I’m going to say here is that despite “God’s freaking sister”, one of the two most powerful beings in the universe, being right there, Dean’s main concern is Cas to the point that he calls out for him in front of everyone else and reveals his weakness, not a particularly restrained or smart move for a trained hunter. Amara and Lucifer both notice this and we are meant to notice them noticing
Why is this important? To clarify that Dean’s bond with Cas and his worry for him outweighs his bond with Amara.

The longing scene. Again, much meta-d. Basics being, Dean is longing for Cas (while actually muttering ‘where are you Amara’ clearly worried for Cas as it is Cas not Amara he is talking to Sam about around this scene. Amara has an actual real, substantiated ‘bond’ with Dean through the mark, sure, but it IS NOT AS STRONG AS HIS BOND WITH CAS (which as far as I’m aware doesn’t actually have any real basis unless the hand mark or something has a role but hasn’t been touched on for 8 years so I’m going with no), ergo Amara has to use Cas to find Dean. Then yes, she totally manipulates him into coming to rescue Cas/Lucifer because Dean is such a good friend

After this we get another very interestingly subtextual scene where Dean and Sam are interviewing Donatello and it is only once Sam mentions the word ‘Angels’ that Amara again immediately finds and comes to Dean.

Again proving that Dean’s bond with Cas is stronger than his bond with Amara.

I particularly love the near-finale narrative, after she expressly tells Dean she cares for him and wants him to be happy, to have bliss - the sandwiching of Mary and Cas in her story which is so relevant to season 12 - how Amara shows that she is capable of just de-materialising Metatron in an instant because she is attacked and angry, she then notices Mary’s picture, she then is again attacked and angry but ‘saves’ Cas, essentially ‘resurrecting’ him from Lucifer’s control, then of course resurrects Mary.

( #Narrative parallels and tropes are a thing is one of my favourite tags).

These are all writing/directing/production choices that were made to show these scenes one after the other and revealing her choices here. Are we not supposed to wonder why she made these choices? 

Are we not supposed to wonder why Amara, all powerful being, is incapable of contacting Dean without going THROUGH CAS (who Dean expressly states is “small fry” in comparison to her), or having a conversation with him where Cas isn’t in some way referenced once she is herself portrayed as a love interest? 

Or why the writing/directing/production team made these choices? 

There is a clear narrative being told here.

If you watch all of Amara’s screen time throughout this season it is just so clear what she is exposing, what her interactions with Dean are based on, how her storyline does not function without Dean and Cas’s bond. I’m not saying her story is pointless, it clearly isn’t, just that it rests on their bond so this shows how extremely important to the whole story their bond is.

Any why? Why are we being shown all this, why are we being encouraged to question all this? I was just reading @charlie-minion’s excellent overview and loved this post with great insight: “The question in season 9 was “who do you love?” Whereas I think the questions in season 10 are “what kind of love do you feel?” and “whose heart are you gonna break?”. 

There is a clear and ever evolving question about Dean’s feelings throughout the seasons which has now kept on into season 12. I think these questions have been more or less answered now, the questions for season 12 and moving forwards are “is this love reciprocated”, which has already been answered textually, “will you be able to admit to this love” and “what are you going to do about it”…

hello lovelies (ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ*:・゚✧ so I’ve been searching my way in this community for about three days right now, and I decided to make an intro post (which is also my first post though (✿◠‿◠) )!

  • i’m currently watching too many series at once ಥ⌣ಥ
  • my favourite subject is biology
  • i made a studyblr because i really need to stop procastinating and i want to stay motivated ‘cause i tend to lose my motivation quickly lolz

here are some of the studyblrs i admire; you guys are amazing and thank you for being such a big inspiration/ motivation (▰˘◡˘▰) :

@themedtimes @rafstudyblr @architstudy @biolcgy @eggystudy @emmastudies @221bstudystr @sirius-studying @quotestudy @aetudes @apricot-studies @alimastudies @academiics @studyign @studywithinspo @rhubarbstudies

i couldn’t tag everyone, but just remember that all of you guys are such a goldmine of inspiration and motivation like really?? I’m officially just three days active as rainbowstudyign and i’m already motivated enough to make my next exams but i wouldn’t actually do that because i just ended this exam period today lol


feel free to message me if you wanna know something more, or if you just want to be friends just talk with me plsss haha (∪ ◡ ∪) (like/ reblog this post if you’re a studyblr btw, still searching a lot of blogs to follow x)

I read this adorable headcannon by @gerame about Alfred and Ludwig having cooking competitions and someone trying to be sweet by letting the other win, but could you even imagine, hyper competitive and aggressive, little Alfred?

Alfred: Oh man, that’s really good…

Ludwig: Yours is too. I think you should win this time. You have earned it.

Alfred: Ya know, you’re right.! I win. Haha! Number one!!!!

Ludwig:…

Alfred: Yours wasn’t even that good– *Shoves all of it into his mouth* I waf juf sayin’ thft to make youf feef bettefh. *Takes rest of food and runs.* 

If that were Gilbert the competition would never end. No conscientious would ever be reached. Blood would be spilled. There’s a reason why Ludwig dosen’t let those two compete about anything anymore.   

  • Lawless: Maybe I just like you.
  • Licht: Maybe I just like you too...
  • Lawless: Oh, REALLY?!??!?
  • Licht: Yeah. Maybe I've liked you for a really long time, but didn't realize because I hated you so much.

anonymous asked:

Can I ask for your advice? One of my friends ships karam*l and I don't and she asked why and I don't know how to explain that I really want to hurl Mon-ew into the fucking sun without sounding like a douchecanoe, since I don't really think she's noticed that he's horrid (heteronormativity yay). Any suggestions?

peak my masterpost here with links to the good posts about how mon-el is abusive and why it’s a shitty ship. Alternatively his character tag (mon el, mon-el, monel) will have a lot of posts on it that sum it up really well for you. The karolsen, sanvers and supercorp tags also have a fair bit of decent commentary too. There are posts upon posts of the shows statistics showing that he has taken up a ridiculous amount of screen time this season. Seriously, someone edited out all of his parts in 2x16, and that left us with 25 minutes of a 45 minute show left to distribute among the other characters, he’s that fucking screen heavy. 

But basically he’s a gaslighting, manipulative fuck, who owned slaves and lied to Kara about that so that he could get into her pants. He literally complained about not being able to objectify women. He’s not doing anything for the good of the people, even with his heroing he’s stated that he’s doing it to spend time with Kara. He also only started training as a hero in the first place to spend more time as kara to get into her pants, furthering the sexist trope that it’s a woman’s job to make a man better. That doesn’t make you a hero, that makes you a misogynistic twat with super strength. Not to mention that they broke up Karolsen, a healthy interracial relationship, for no reason other than to stick Kara with him. There was literally not one good explanation given for their break up. they spent a whole season healthily building up that relationship only to tear it down when the white boy came in to the picture.

And finally he just doesn’t respect her at all. Not once has he actually listened to. When she asked him to be quiet about the relationship, he lasted literally 10 seconds before announcing it to not just her friends, but to everyone she fucking works with too. Without her fucking consent and after she asked him not to. And in her fucking workplace of all places. When she asked him to respect her, he didn’t. When Winn said he should respect Kara, he listened. That’s classic misogyny. And not to mention the fact that when they broke up, he literally ignored that during The Flash episode and acted like it didn’t happen. J’onn had to call him out for it by saying “I thought you two broke up”. To which Monfuck’s response was “shhhh”. True loves kiss my fucking ass. And he keeps invading her personal/safe spaces. He was just in her apartment?? Without her permission or consent?? When she asked for him to leave her alone?? Creepy as fuck mate.

Even in this episode where he’s meant to be decent: Kara alled him incredible, sweet, kind and selfless. Do you know what he called her? Annoying. He called her annoying.

It’s not a healthy ship and Kara isn’t happy. Melissa even said so herself.

What's that interview with Stevie and jimmy iovine where jimmy gets like jokingly insulted because Stevie talks about Lindsey or something? I think it's from around 2012?

Forever in our Hearts ~ Part VI

https://kazekage-gaara-forever.tumblr.com/post/158846278325/forever-in-our-hearts-part-ivI do not like to leave a long time between the parts, so I’m back with the sixth part of my little story. : 3

I have to say: It surprises me how people like it and I’m glad about it, too! Actually it is only a small insight into my feelings about the different episodes with Gaara … Thanks for your support! :3

The last time we had completed a whole season with Gaara and after these episodes it went on with the fight against Madara Uchiha.
I still hoped … Please don´t kill my baby ;-; xD ♥

It was still about bringing Naruto to his father. Kurama gave Gaara this advice before he was drafted by Madara and Gaara did not hesitate. He immediately took him to Minato to save him ~

After Gaara brought Naruto to Minato and the fight with Madara went to the next round, Gai fought against him. He opened all eight inner doors, which was his sure death. Naruto saved him! Gaara remembered the fight with Lee. Aweeesome ♥

“Naruto … If you’re Hokage, let’s go for a drink.”

And then the Jutsu of Madara was activated. All fell into a kind of dream world … also Gaara. My heart was broken.

The dream of Gaara was heartbreaking. I cried bitterly when I saw this. The dream was from his childhood. How it could have be … How it should have be.

And of course Temaris Dream! Her brothers are so hopeless ~ ♥

Then came the dream of Killerbee. These episodes were incredibly great! It was a Dream of the Bijuu and Jinchuuriki teaming up and fighting together against Akatsuki. These consequences were GREAT ♥ I loved it!

Gaara played with Tsunade and … yeah.. XD

Btw, this smile of him in front of the other Jinchuuriki Fu was so adorable, so pure ♥

So sad this was just a dream …

And then … JINCHUURIKI SQUAD!! ♥♥♥

And then it came, as it had to come … The dream was ended, Kaguya was defeated and the war was won. My heart was so heavy and broken, it was so sad and so beautiful … I cried a few days very often. I was sad and happy because i knew: The End of Anime war near …

The second Handshake ~ ♥

After the official end of the main action followed a few special consequences. Including one of Gaara. An insight into his childhood.

After this episode was officially clear: Rasa kept his siblings away from Gaara. This little Bitch, I hate him.

This … little … Bitch.

But it was warming my heart to see little Gaara smiling so often. The episode was very nice but thanks to his super father also very sad. But Gaara was still happy and smiled … I love him so much ♥♥ ALWAYS ♥

The next part will be the last one. The last part of the wonderful story of Gaara.

Is your OC some short of superhero? I assumed it because of the mask.

I think one post is enough about Rakhall for now.

I didn’t really think any long or connected backstory for him, for the time being, just the basics.

His backstory takes place in the far future, where the technology level advances so far that mankind can travel not only in space but between dimensions and universes too. The more the technology advanced, the more mankind stopped to believe in supernatural. The lack of faith caused the immortal beings, (gods, good and evil spirits) lose their power, more and more, until they became completely powerless.

This was a golden opportunity for a ‘young’ demon, who wanted to escape hell for eons. He created a nearly human (I mean he still has the horns) body and left hell forever. 

It’s an unwritten rule that anyone who knows demon’s name has complete control over it, so he had to choose another name for himself. This name was Rakhall. The more he explored the new word of humans, the more and more he liked it… Interdimensional traveling has its own… benefits if I do say so…

He became an interdimensional smuggler… I mean, some minor anomalies don’t really matter, right?

It’s easy to be a smuggler if you have demonic abilities, such as absorbing energy, or ripping dimensional gates with your bare hand.

During his adventures, Rakhall discovered a place called Shattered Abyss, this dimension isn’t on any dimensional maps or traveling data-bases, and he uses this place to hide from the law and to recover after his adventures…

What IS the Shattered Abyss? It’s unknown. It appears to be an intermediate place, between dimensions, containing fragments of every known, and unknown dimension… one thing is sure, though… Rakhall is the only one who knows about its existence.

// So Ultra Mun did too much today. I had a rough day today and my history professor had to escorts me out of class today. I almost blacked out in class from pain. And this evening all my jaw could do was snap and crack. It’s about time I sleep now.

I’ll see you all tomorrow and post that wonderful art then too!

Call out post for some friends

@stephaniie-brown

Too talented. Makes me ship things that have literally NO content and makes me cry

@bats-supergirl

Actually a sweetie despite the fact that she would gladly stab you and constantly says mean things about herself which I find personally insulting

@vivalaplutoh

doesn’t like discowing AND loves red nightwing.

@actuallytimdrake

Got “Wait For It” stuck in my head. I’ve been playing it on repeat for like 10 hours (minus the time it took for me to go for power rangers) and I cant get it out of my head

Also all of them don’t believe in bag milk. They are boxed milk heathens

Possibly more to come.

I adore you and leonstrenton so much I would be quitting fandom without you guys to be so articulate and funny about TWD all the time, I would understand if you're both too fed up to keep posting but I feel like what's another hiatus at this stage and surely, SURELY on s8 they can't separate caryl all season again and even Norman thinks there's unfinished business with daryls lie to her, so at least we have that, it's all about 8a spoilers for me to keep going

Never doubt TPTB’s ability of separating Caryl, you throw this at the universe, the universe will feel the need of prove you wrong, I’m not even kidding. And awww, thanks a lot. I still like here a lot, I don’t intend to go anytime soon, neither @leonstrenton cause I didn’t allow her to go so she won’t (amigaaaaa

Some Suggestions for Doctor Who’s Sidekick:

Yes, I know that they have already announced who the co stars will be for Peter Capaldi’s last season. We even watched the Christmas special.

This napkin post is rather delayed, I am afraid. We had the conversation about who should replace dear departed Clara quite a while ago. The kids both thought that a new sidekick should be someone other than another young attractive Caucasian woman, but could not agree on what sort of person should be next. I assembled a few of their favorites as potential companions.

Doctor Who is not really on our sons’ minds right now, but as the tenth season is coming up soon, I thought perhaps it was time to post this one.

My younger son was happy to point out some of the many drawing failings on this one. Deadpool is too small, the pug in the foreground is awkwardly posed. And, he would like to add that pugs aren’t necessarily his favorite dogs right this now.

This napkin is definitely more about quantity rather than quality. Back when I was drawing two napkins a night, I used to have a rule about no more than two characters at a time. It made a lot of sense.

Also saw people sending you some Good Headcanons and can I just chime in to spread the good word about Adam with brain damage? He canonically has it and it explains not only his hearing loss but his mood swings and losing time too. And think about this... Cabeswater finding those cracks, Cabeswater communicating the way it does as a way of healing the cracks in his skull and his perception of the world... Adam has post-concussion syndrome and a traumatic brain injury I truly believe this.

!!! this is super solid…! 

For everyone concerned about Cars 3 spoilers:

On this blog I tag the spoilers. BUT not everyone can blacklist, so despite knowing many major spoilers, I’m keeping a lot to myself.
(I personally have sought out spoilers because I’m gonna see the damn movie 493728473272 times anyway and I don’t mind)
And if I DO post anything major here, I’ll get on the main site (I blog from mobile about 100% of the time) and put stuff under a readmore. Readmores only work on your dashboard so be careful.
And usually, I’ll hide spoilers in my tags after a handful of warnings. So as you scroll, they’re revealed after cautioning.

As for the theatre RELEASE of the actual cars 3 (June 16th in the USA), we as a fandom need to agree on an open- spoiler discussion date. For example, the rule of thumb in the Star Wars fandom is ONE WEEK from the premiere of the movie. That means after one week, people start openly discussing the film. The Cars fandom needs to consider something like this. (We still have time. Was gonna bring up this topic earlier even lol)

As we approach June, we will be surrounded by cars. At grocery stores, billboards, commercials, YouTube ads, other social media ads, random merchandise, the news, etcetera. But spoilers can be mostly curbed. At least in some places.

I don’t want to loose you guys into the void because there are so few of us. We gotta work something out to stick together.

Two more months!!
