Thing is, no matter how the mixtape originally made its way from Dean to Cas, it certainly got its meaning when Dean said “It’s a gift. You keep those”

12x19 Picspam Review (LOUD NOISES)

Paper bag to breathe into? Check.

Espresso? Check.

Gently worn trench in my floor suitable for my inevitable pacing? Check.

THEN: ALL OF THE DEAN PINING

*immediately jumps up from chair to pace, breathe heavily, and chug espresso*

Yep, this is gonna go just swimmingly


(Trigger warning for the beginning of this review. I was going originally going to skip it as to avoid the triggery content, but then I realized I had shit to say about it. Also a spoiler warning for Dexter in the beginning. If you want to skip that stuff, just… scroll really fast.)

Rose x Ten, post GitF-au/fixit; angst, fluff, romance, more angst, and possibly some smut later, but this part (and all parts on ff.net) is sfw (minor exception for brief language).

(see the end of this part for notes and special thanks)

Minuet, Part II

Part I

Twisting in his grasp, Rose cranes her neck to look at him, finally, and there he is, all furrowed brow and tight mouth and eyes glittering with anger, and god, if she wasn’t so irritated with him right now, she just might kiss him.

“That’s what you were going to do, isn’t it?” she asks instead.

***

Eyes widening, the Doctor only has a moment to let his mouth drop open in surprise before another gentleman steps in—time to change dance partners. Rose slips into position with the newcomer without so much as a blink or even a glance in the Doctor’s direction, never faltering in her rhythm; a quick peek at the Doctor moments later tells her that he has allowed himself to be swept up in the tide of dancers, sidling up to his new partner across the room.

Rose turns away, swirling in her partner’s arms, but she can feel the eyes of the Doctor boring into her. She shivers despite the summer heat.

“That’s beside the point,” he whispers when they meet again, touching palm-to-palm first with one hand, then the other. “I’m a Time Lord.”

“Really? First I’ve heard of it,” Rose replies drily.

“I’ve been doing this for a long time, Rose. A very long time. I understand the risks.”

Rose rolls her eyes. “And stupid apes don’t.”

At least the Doctor has the decency to flinch at those words. “That isn’t what I meant.”

“Of course it is,” Rose sighs, and they both step back, granting a berth for other dancers to flit gracefully between them. “After all,” Rose continues when they reconnect, hands clasped, “I’m hardly one of the most accomplished women who ever lived, am I?”

Notes on cassette tapes for teenagers who want to write fic about that last episode of Supernatural

(This is snarky and I’m sorry but god does this make me feel old. @captainhaterade)

Cassette tapes have two sides. Side A, Side B. If you’re listening to the whole thing, you get halfway through and then have to flip it over, unless your cassette players is super-fucking-fancy (which Cas’s shitty truck does not have, lbr). But, bonus? You don’t have to rewind them. 

Tape hiss is the wooooorst. 

You’d think that 13 songs means a 46 minute tape (23 minutes a side) but this is Zepp we’re talking about. If Dean didn’t include Stairway and Kashmir, he was wrong. They’re 8 minutes each, so we’re probably talking a 60 minute tape. 

Mixtapes for driving and mixtapes for boning are very different. I’m just saying. Well, @mixgoldenphoenix is just saying, but I agree.

(Feel free to add to this)

Dean is leaving a voicemail for his mother in the teaser for next week, where he says, “can you call me back? Some stuff going down… kinda got me spun out.”

He had a fight with Cas, and then he calls his mom.

And then it just hit me that Steve Yockey is the one giving us the Dean/Cas fight hangover.

You know, the same writer who gave us 12x10.

I’m gonna be a squishy disgusting mess, aren’t I?
