and i think that guy that plays kevin from supernatural was in it

anonymous asked:

why os batman great?

I tend to focus on the guy in the red cape at the expense of my second-favorite character, but let’s make something very, very clear: in terms of the sheer scale on which he and his iconography have imprinted onto the popular consciousness, the ratio of output to quality across all mediums for a character that’s experienced the kind of proliferation he has, and his ability to not only endure but remain at the forefront of the genre he practically co-founded across decades, Batman is easily the greatest superhero of all time.

Explaining why that’s the case is tricky to truly, substantively get right, because there’s a difference between what makes him great as a character, and what’s made him the most popular character in the world. Not to remotely denigrate the attention span/intellect of the average moviegoer or suggest they don’t ‘get it’, but I have to imagine most people don’t love Batman because they’ve extensively thought about his complex motives and the fascinating symbolism that rules his world, but because he drives the world’s dopest car over to his job of suplexing crime into the pavement, which is valid because that rules. So we’ll start at the immediate mass-appeal stuff and work our way down, and the big one is something we’ve already touched on:

Batman’s cool as hell

There are certainly contrarian souls who would argue that Batman is not, in fact, relentlessly awesome. Think about him for a couple seconds, they might note, and he’s a silly manchild living in his parents’ underground basement who can only emotionally engage as an equal with literal children; they might drive the point home that his particular brand of macho hyper-capitalist performative Hard Man edginess is both shallow and ultimately passe. And if you’re engaging in a character-centered examination of his archetype as in The Lego Batman Movie or Morrison’s work with the character, those are fine points. But in terms of whether or not he’s surface-level cool? Pull your head out of your ass, peel open your eyes, and engage with the larger culture for a second: Batman is as close to objectively rad as it is possible for a concept to be.

Batman wears black body armor and drives awesome cars and sounds like Kevin Conroy. Batman lives in a mansion that also has a cave in it, and wears the slickest suits when he’s not being Batman, because Batman can buy anything. Batman is ripped and sexy.* Batman knows every martial art and parkour and can blend into the shadows, and he has a belt of James Bond gadgets. Batman is a genius who’s always ten steps ahead and can escape any trap. Batman has a pitch-black sense of humor. Batman is vicious even as he’s utterly cool in the face of danger. Batman fights horror movie villains of the supernatural, monstrous, fetishistically disturbing, and plain ‘ol slasher varieties, and wins (when he’s not busy dancing across the rooftops in pursuit of a leather-clad Anne Hathaway/Michelle Pfeiffer/Julie Newmar). Batman’s climbed his way back from chemically-induced psychosis, a shattered spine, and the gates of death, all by wit and sheer brutal force of will. Batman has a city that’s New York and Chicago and Vegas and Hell rolled into one, and when he’s needed it literally blasts his logo onto the sky in public acknowledgement of his supreme coolness, but he also travels the world to other cool-looking exotic locales so he can be cool there too. Batman has theme songs by Danny Elfman and Hans Zimmer. And crucially, in spite of all of this, Batman is tormented. You can argue the validity of those conventions on an intellectual level, but what it amounts to is that Batman is a kickass figure of the night who’s the best at everything and has the best of everything, snarling all the while even as he keeps an air of amused detachment about the whole affair, and those are archetypes that humanity’s long since given the thumbs up as constituting capital-c Cool. We like people who can kick ass, the outlaws, the capable and the mysterious, so long as they’re in good stories that let us buy it. And more than anyone in pop culture aside from maybe Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine - and that dude’s done, while the Dark Knight forever remains - he’s That, the superhero.

* Yes, his depiction is more typically centered around a straight dude perspective of male physical perfection than anything actually particularly sensual or alluring, but the intent’s clearly there, and when you’ve been played by Clooney and Affleck I figure you get to claim ‘sexy’ as a fair semi-universal descriptor.

Batman is spooky

Of course, if cool was all there was to Batman’s general persona, he wouldn’t be cool at all, he’d be Poochie in a Dracula cape (which given it will presumably last until the heat death of the universe is a premise The Simpsons will inevitably have to get around to at some point, so remember you saw it here first). But what backs it up and lets people take it seriously is that he’s spooky. Not necessarily frightening - though he can most definitely be that too - but there’s an ethereal, shadowy aspect to his world that goes beyond the fright mask. It can take many forms for many situations and versions of him and his setting: lurking on a gargoyle over an alleyway, waiting for some poor unsuspecting punk to try and stick up an innocent family only to drag him ten stories up and leave him sobbing for his mother; karate-chopping his way through deathtraps and colorful henchmen, which for all its unabashed fun still carries the air of Halloween pageantry and neuroses let loose; haunting the grimiest parts of an urban hellhole, waiting to burst through the window of a roach-infested apartment or a musty disused warehouse to break bones and spill blood; appearing from nowhere, grappling with mind-bending chemical trips and fighting to stay one step ahead of killers in the shadows, dueling mad rich perverted cultists and literal demons of the underworld, overlooking a shadow city forever in flux to reflect the horrors of the moment. Even at his most innocent, there’s something irreducibly seedy and violent and enigmatic about Batman, and that not only provides immediate distinction and character to him and his surroundings - one that distinguishes both from their contemporaries - but legitimizes the entire enterprise as something that can be taken seriously.

Batman is playful

At the same time, Batman’s fun - even at his most serious he uses Batman-shaped boomerangs, and drives a cool car even though gliding and swinging lets him better avoid traffic. He needs to be fun for the kind of ubiquitous pop appeal he has, and it’s built in on every level of the brand no matter how far away you try and veer from it, letting a character rooted in loss and declarations of bloody revenge work just as well for four-year-olds as forty-somethings. The cave, the costumes, the sidekicks and signal and colorful rogues and utility belt and trophies, they give his world a size and dimension that lets him dip his toe in nearly any genre, with his inherent seriousness backing him up to let you buy him in any of those narrative territories. At the end of the day, the people shaping Batman at least subconsciously know it’s all a game, and in letting him have that kind of fun he’s granted versatility and the ability to invigorate as well as stun audiences.

Batman is emotionally, symbolically raw

And sitting at the heart of it all, giving him the gas in the engine that propels all of the above forward, is that he comes from the most viscerally, broadly relatable place of any superhero. The only one who approaches him is Spider-Man, and even there the meaning of his tragedy is somewhat displaced - there’s loss and guilt, yes, but that’s merely the catalyst for a message of responsibility. Here, that Bruce Wayne loses a concept everyone is on some level familiar with, of the happiness and comfort and stability that family is supposed to provide, is itself the point. He grabs the emotional lever right at the animal hindbrain and pulls until it snaps off: everything has gone wrong, and someone must pay for making things this way. Then for good measure he actually does make them pay while adhering to a righteous moral code that defies all he fights against, elevating himself from spooky fun action hero into myth. He’s surrounded by a city where abstract horrors consolidate down into entirely literal figures - for instance, in Gotham the fear that we can be outfoxed, overwhelmed, and systematically taken apart in service of evil stroking its own ego because we just aren’t good enough to survive is a dick in a neon green hat who likes crossword puzzles (as opposed to Superman’s world of much more personal and basic human concerns blown up to cosmic scale) - and he in turn becomes a myth of us persevering through the worst to fight back.

Batman is genuinely a good character

I place this last because this is really the nuts-and-bolts level. It’s essential, none of the above would work for 79 years and counting without it, but it’s not something many but the hardcore (which includes the comic readers by default at this point) consciously think about. But on the ground floor beneath everything else, Batman’s not just an effective piece of branding, atmosphere, and emotional manipulation, but a good character. In his motivations, with the anger that compels him often making many miss that underneath, he far more powerfully wants to ensure that no one else goes through what he did. The childishness of his methods and mindset regarding ‘the mission’ meeting the maturity of his dedication and brilliance, and the humor that can come from that disconnect (especially when his alternating disgust and amusement with his daytime masquerade as a normal person gets involved). The tentative, essential friendships he’s built with the likes of Gordon and Superman. The fatherly connection with Alfred, and the see-saw of the latter’s feelings of guilt, responsibility, and pride in his charge. The spark of his rivalries at their best. The detective work that can be as thrilling as a good punch-out when pulled off right. The forever changing complexity of the Family, a web of Robins and Batgirls and assorted hangers-on with him at the center, their existence and growth a chart of his own emotional progress and regression. His jet-black wit and self-awareness, his ability to empathize with fellow victims, his difficulties in trusting and openly loving those around him when his world is built on the knowledge of how easily those can be stripped away and how badly it hurts. The paranoia, the compassion, the drive and endurance. Beneath all the trappings, Bruce Wayne is just plain and simple a really, really good, interesting, multi-faceted character, fine-tuned under decades of creators and by his existence facilitating the creation and development of countless *other* good characters. And that’s really all it takes underneath it all to prop up a symbol that’s built empires, redefined cultures, and changed lives: the idea of a good man who refused to give up in the face of a cruel world when it forever scarred him, and made himself something greater to fight back and help others not have to go through it alone. That’s why Batman’s great.

Curtain!Wincest Fic Recs

hello nonnie, I think most of them are wincest but I put a few Gen there too, hope you like them!

Know the Water’s sweet but Blood is thicker by: Sijglind  There are two new guys in your apartment block. They’re hot. Maybe a bit old—over thirty, you guess—but they are the kind of men people always compare to fine wine, getting better with age and all that crap.

Rankle and Gall by smalltrolven AO3 right here Post Gadreel-reveal: after a month of not really finishing their unfinished arguments,  Sam and Dean finally do finish one, and get back on the same page so that they can deal with the Mark of Cain the Winchester Way -  together. An alternate take on Season 9 with Cain summoning, soul-bonding, Oz-sourced magical spell casting, much lasagna baking, and angsty reunion-type schmoop.

The Secrets You Keep by  runedgirl  Dean started nesting the second week they were at the bunker. Sam took a little bit longer.

I’ll Wait For You by: morganaDW  Sam’s hurt in ways that can’t be healed easily even by Death. Facing the risk of Sam remaining how he is, Dean struggles to heal his brother in the only way he knows how even if that means giving up his life as a hunter.

Reading Into The Past by  jasmineisland This picks up after Sacrifice, and now that S9 has premiered it’s AU. The trials are over, and, even though the gates of hell aren’t closed, for the first time Sam and Dean are truly on the same page. They have a real home in the batcave, and have formed a relationship that makes them both happy. But it’s been a long, hard road to get there full of secrets, miscommunication, and manipulation from both sides. When Charlie opens the door to their virtual life, meaning the rest of the books online and the small community that knows they are real, they are shocked by the way they were both truly played. It gives them an insight to each other that goes a long  way towards healing old hurts. They manage to clear the air, figure out just how bad and worse the options they had to choose from really were, and they find each other in a whole new way.

The House Always Wins by selecasharp After the angels fall, the boys take some hard-won time away from the world so Sam can heal. Things at their new home aren’t as restful as they’d hoped, however, as old feelings between the brothers begin to resurge. As if that weren’t enough, it turns out that they’re not as alone in the bunker as they thought.

Of Ghosts and Men  by stardust_made (Gen/Sherlock-SPN Xover)  A year after Sherlock Holmes’s death John Watson returns to 221B Baker Street hoping to turn a new leaf. He finds that a stranger has come to town—while John was gone Sam Winchester moved in to the flat below. John’s interest is piqued, but he isn’t the only one curious in the household. Both men are trying to come to terms with their past, but as is often the case the past refuses to stay away. Sam and John are taken on a journey where adventures and revelations are going to put new and old relationships to test. (Gen fics are not my thing, I confess, I love wincest and the ponier the better, but this fic is made of awesome)

Wherever We’re Together That’s My Home by shannondoll It’s the small town gigs that keep them going - once a hunter always a hunter. Dean wants to do something special for Sammy, and a nice reclusive cabin in the Tennessee hills might be the perfect solution. A month of domestic bliss would do them well.

Clean Getaway by vicious-trade  It was cute for about a week. But it it’s been several months now and somehow Sam is still not getting it.

The College AU by Canon_Is_Relative, stardust_made Canon divergence post season two where Sam doesn’t die and Dean doesn’t make any deals, and their lives take on completely new turns. Sam goes back to college and Dean keeps hunting…but can they stay apart? A get-together story in a universe where the forces of Heaven and Hell left them alone.

Ignorance Would be Bliss by delanach Kevin knows more than he wants to about Sam and Dean, and he really wishes he didn’t.

Will You Settle For Love by verucasalt123 They’re out of the life. Pretty much. But regular jobs and friendly neighbors don’t negate the fact that the supernatural is still out there. This is a story about the choices and consequences that come along with retirement, and a test of how strong their relationship is when confronted with their past.

Lessons Learned by lyra_wing   It’s 2012. Six years later, and the hunt is over for Sam and Dean. But it’s just beginning for Michael, and he goes looking for the guys who helped him all those years ago.

Ways of Communication by  jiru_jiru_chan After a hunt gone awry Dean is left deaf and depressed, unable to cope with his situation. When he almost kills himself in an attempt to prove himself as a hunter Sam takes a drastic decision and they move to a secluded, out of the way town. Hoping to prove to Dean that he is more than his ability to hunt Sam tries all he can to let Dean help him, something that is not an easy task to accomplish.

Take My Hand and We’ll Make It by akintay post 8x23. It takes three days for the pain to stop and another four before Sam is strong enough to get out of bed. Dean is there to take care of him.

Loose Lips Sink All the Ships by miriad   They should have known that it’d happen, sooner or later. Two men, living together, small town. They were bound to get caught. Except, they hadn’t exactly lied. From the beginning, they had said they were brothers. The Brothers Winchester. It wasn’t Sam’s fault that everyone thought he meant “brothers” or Dean’s fault that everyone assumed it was just some kind of Brokeback Mountain thing

Never Be by rejeneration  Alternative WIAWSNB in which Dean is shocked to find himself living in domestic bliss with Sam (rather than Carmen)

Closing Time by 9091   The boys buy a bar and serve the hunter community. Futurefic, where they grow old together.

- Five Years Later - 

Dean drove as fast as he could to the hospital, his heart racing as he ran the worse case scenarios in his mind. He turned off the engine, and ran inside the building, running to the closest nurse. “I’m here for Y/N!”

The nurse checked the clipboard she was holding. “She’s in Room 156.” Dean barely waited for the man to finish telling him which room she was in before he sprinted to that direction, throwing the door open.

“Y/N! Are you okay? What happened?” he fired various questions as he held her face in his hands, his eyes roaming around her body.

“I just fainted at work. It’s okay, Dean.” She put her hands on his wrists, giving it a squeeze before pulling it down to her lap. “I’m okay.”

He kissed her forehead, rubbing her back while doing so. “You’re going to take a one week vacation from work. Deal?”

Y/N laughed, but nodded. “Only if you’re taking a week off too.”

“I will.”

“Y/N?” The general doctor on-call knocked on the door before entering. She was in her mid-40s, a hijab framing her tanned skin, and a mole on her left cheek. She’s only been working in the hospital for a couple of months, but knew of Y/N from working several shifts with her already. As well as the fact that Y/N was promoted to be head nurse two years ago, and that role meant that she was to remember all of the names of the doctors that are in her precinct.

“Hey, Dr. Hussain.” Y/N greeted, giving the woman a warm smile.

“Oh, Y/N. How many times do I have to tell you to just call me Sarah?” She waved her hand, dismissing the formalities between them. “I heard about what happened, and the other nurses told me you’ve been feeling pretty unwell these past few weeks.”

She nodded, ignoring the worried looks Dean was giving her. “Yes. I just thought I was coming down with something.”

The doctor nodded, pulling out her charts.

A/N: Happy Halloween! This is and will forever be the only holiday I acknowledge :) Since Reggie has a thing for Midge in the comics, I wrote her in as his girlfriend because I didn’t wanna have to deal with a love triangle between her, Moose and Kevin. Y/A/C = Your Activity of Choice. This will have another part, but only on next year’s Halloween…


Y/N’s in her room getting ready for the Drive-In’s double feature and Cheryl’s costume party afterwards. A folded Register newspaper lays on her bed with a large headline on display. ‘Series of murders terrify Riverdale.’. The article contains some details Alice Cooper probably bribed out of someone. ‘Four parents have been found dead by authorities. The only ones present in the crime scene are their offspring, with bloody hands and Ouija board with a blood-red planchette in their rooms. It goes deeper than that as the teens who’ve been aprehended swear to have no memory of the happening.’. The girl brushes that out of her mind and takes one last look at her reflection in the mirror, sliding the small strap from her bag, which is filled with add-ons to her costume, her wallet and mints, across her chest. Her belly feels as if a thousand butterflies were flying inside her. The girl finally leaves, after her parents sermon on staying safe inside the car and enjoying her time sober. She tries not to look too weirdly amused as she arrives at her best friend’s house.

Lucifer 3x10 - A Meta/Speculation/Spoiler Explanation post.

This is going to be a very long and very spoilery post so you have been warned!

First, allow me to say that I was a bit disappointed by Marcus being Cain. I was expecting something more from the writers but as the wardrobe revealed us that Marcus is Cain (see this post) the actual revelation was not what I wanted for Marcus… 

Anyway, there are so many questions to answer by using the existing spoilers and a good dose of speculation. 

@ships-sailing-in-the-night reblogged @luciferbl00dymorningstar  this post  yesterday, that interview had many interesting parts which the most notable parts were the following: 

1) Before we get into how exactly Cain fits into the show’s mythology, my immediate question is: Who was the Sinnerman (played by Kevin Carroll) in all of this?

You find out a bit more in the next episode, but basically, the Sinnerman was a protegé of Cain’s, and they hatched this plan together. You then realize that the Sinnerman went rogue and got carried away with the whole thing.

2) TVLINE | So did Cain know and believe all this time that Lucifer was the devil…?

The other thing you find out in the next episode is that the person who has got all these files on the celestials and the supernaturals is Cain. He’s been keeping track of everybody coming and going on Earth. When he found out there is the devil and a detective who could make the devil bleed, he thought this might be his chance to find someone who could make him die.

——————————————————————————————


Now let’s answer the first question that comes in our mind. Was Sinnerman indeed Cain’s protege? 

Well, we have a few spoilers from the time the episode My Brother’s Killer (3x10 - script)  was being filmed and which @ships-sailing-in-the-night revealed partly yesterday. At that time the production took the picture that revealed Cain to Lucifer

At first, we didn’t know the significance of that spoiler… now we know better.. As you can see a different actor was placed as Cain in the photo but still things can mean so much more… 

Yet something isn’t right… You nurture a child for over 3 decades, raise to a man and then kill it? No. You see I have a speculation based on a known spoiler. 

Sinnerman wanted to die by Lucifer’s hand because it was supposed to to really end his life. In the interview, it is said that Marcus/Cain will need the help of Lucifer to end his life and supposedly Lucifer will do everything he can to go around his Father and grant Cain his request. But there is always a twist… 

We know that Abel is able to resurrect in different bodies. In High School Poppycock he comes back as a woman (we have enough info which points us, one particular actress, btw) So let’s just assume/speculate for a moment that Sinnerman was, in reality, Abel who we will see again soon as he has inhabited a different body. 

In the comics whenever Abel is killed by Cain/Marcus he is always resurrected again. That’s an interesting though choice of word that is used in the comic and an inspiring one perhaps for the series writers.

The spoilers when Abel has ended up in a woman’s body tells us of a person who tries to get away from Cain but is always revealed and always ends up dead… so I wouldn’t hesitate to believe that there might be a plot between Cain and Abel in order to stop that cycle or Marcus simply enjoys the hunting part once Abel is at the right age.

Now if Cain has the ability to ensure people’s cooperation perhaps he makes Abel sin every time so his eventual and unavoidable murdering by him is justified. Ther eis a twist here though. Cain in the comics loved his brother and I believe Marcus/Cain does as well so perhaps by making a justified killing Marcus/Cain believes that he will be able to end this cycle of killing

In any case, Marcus in the comics wants Abel dead for good and would do anything to achieve it even in the case of the series make a deal with the Devil… 

Finally, Maze said that the Sinnerman was definitely a human but one who she couldn’t break. So I wonder…. What if that was because Sinnerman was Abel and as such had experienced centuries of torture at his brother’s hands at some point. 

Key phrases in episode 3x10:

Sinnerman: It has to be you. 

Lucifer: Because I was the trap. You never wanted freedom your true desire was to die and for some reason you wanted me to do it

&

Marcus: It’s the only way it could end. 


Other questions we may have:

1) Is Marcus vulnerable around Chloe?

I would say yes. It is why, according to the interview, Marcus was transferred to L.A. Because he heard that a Detective could make the Devil bleed. now think of this. 

What if Marcus had arranged Chloe’s proximity to the hospital Linda was and that is how Lucifer got kidnapped. That would explain how Lucifer was weakened. By the way I still believe that Maze might have been used somehow for this. 

2) How did Marcus robbed Lucifer’s face and saddled him with a pair of wings? 

That is a very difficult question which I cannot answer or speculate. I can try though…

I still believe that like in the comics Lucifer’s wings would regenerate themselves to their original divine state after being burned so as Marcus/Cain knew where to find them as he kept tabs on Maze and Lucifer, he found a way to reattach them and lock them in place. Perhaps even the reappearance of the wings is up to Dad in order for him to save Chloe when the time comes if that scene really happens in 3x11 (script)

3) So ten episodes down and we know Sinnerman great now what?

Well, Abel is coming and I foresee a very different dynamic forming soon. Lucifer and Marcus by the interviews form a very close relationship and perhaps that is why any Marclo does not bother him as much as it should. Additionally, we have to keep in mind that Marcus might/will use Chloe in order to control or enforce Lucifer to kill him or Abel. 

What you should also know is that while Lucifer gets smitten with Marcus the incarnation of human evil on earth, Amenadiel is found helping Abel and putting him under his wing. This might seem a bit weird at this point but think of this… 

The writers have said that Marcus is a good guy but in his attempt to do what is right he makes mistakes in so very many words by combining all the interviews from ComicCon until the last one posted here…  Now Cain might not be our actual killer here… Absurd I know… As Amenadiel is getting closer to Abel we see an increased hostility between Amenadiel and Lucifer for some reason. At least as far as the spoilers tell us and as you know sometimes spoilers are very difficult to be read figuratively and literally…

In parallel, we have the good brothers Abel and Amenadiel teaming (perhaps) against the evil brothers, Cain and Lucifer. The turns will be turned soon in the second part of season 3 and I would expect many twists on what makes a person truly bad. Abel might have been appointed a position in which he would justify his actions as an excuse he is always the victim of Cain, the first murderer, the first evil human in a way. 

Remember that Amenadiel had the same conviction in Season  1. His obsession with Lucifer returning to Hell as he was supposed to and his perception of right and wrong ended with Amenadiel losing his powers and his wings… 

4) Marcus Tattoo… So it was all about the Mark of Cain?

Pars est sempiternum… Or something like ‘The Party is Forever’ or ‘The Piece is Forever’. I personally believe it is an honour on how Cain and Abel are connected are always together as I know for sure that there is no military unit carrying that motto to my knowledge (aka Google).

The tridents for me are a bot more worrisome than the script… Only three Gods held a trident. Zeus, Hades and Poseidon. Poseidon as Neptun in Roman mythology enforces his power with one over Earth, Heaven or Hell


And an ending note after this confusing and really packed post. What we should expect from the basic elements of the show? My speculation is this:

Lucifer, as he grows closer to Cain and as Cain, might or might not be the real villain in this story I would expect either for Lucifer to realise that people do change and can be good although they have been literally been branded as bad, evil etc. for all eternity; Or for Lucifer to be faced with real evil and finally make the separation of what he is with what he claims still to be. Personally, I see the first option as more probable right now.

Deckeratar is obviously not n any real danger. Yes, Chloe and Lucifer keep growing apart but as far as I see we are in no danger by Marclo while the whole plot might be a great advantage for Lucifer and Chloe to get together by the end of S3 or have a good base for S4. 

Other Characters in the show will be of course affected. 

Amenadiel from Linda and Abel.

Ella probably now is on train Deckerstar once again but knowing her she will just think Marcus was too emotional and let it slide. 

Maze has a lot of growing up to do and I’m not sure how she will have any real meaning in the story aside from if she was really used for Lucifer’s kidnapping in S2. 

Linda is obviously having a romantic entanglement with Amenadiel which may disrupt her friendship and her sessions with Lucifer and we all know that having Lucifer without therapy is a bit dangerous, especially where Deckerstar is concerned. 

Dan and Charlotte might finally get their chance but they might also be the Deus ex Machina as Dan was in 2x18 in a way. 

Trixie… The most unpredictable character. That girl can do anything so I would say just keep an eye on that kid…. She is more dangerous than any other character in the show.

My Older Sisters have an insane Supernatural Theory
  • So my two older sisters have this theory about Supernatural and how it's gonna end. I always tell them "It's like saying Voldemort. We do not discuss the end of Supernatural!" but I willingly listened to their theory. So get this...Sam and Dean are in a mental hospital their parents John and Mary to them are dead until Mary visits a few times but barely. Charlie, Garth, and Kevin were just patients in Dean and Sam's room but get moved out. Bobby is a family friend who ends up in the hospital as well but recovers the boys are unaware that he made it. All the angels are doctors or nurses so are Crowley, Rowena, and Meg. Chuck and Amara are Head Doctor and Head Nurse. All that stuff of saving people, hunting things, the family business is all in their heads because they have psychological issues and all the rock music just comes from a music player Dean has in his and Sam's hospital room.
  • They say when all that's revealed Carry on my wayward son should play and it all fade to black.
  • I asked them about some other characters they came up with a bunch of other ideas that I can't remember but in the end I told them to shut up and never bring it up again.
  • What do you guys think about this!?

It was no use. The Winchesters were long gone. “Crap.” They told me not to venture out on my own and to stay close. Did I listen? Of course not!

A break didn’t come too often for Hunters, especially for you, Sam and Dean. You’ve been so busy with trying to find this damn demon, dealing with the death of John, trying to make amends with Bobby, and on top of that, have to worry about both you and Sam.  

No one talked about it but the thing that has been happening with you and Sam have increased. You couldn’t explain it and you hoped that you could forget the whole thing but with John’s words echoing in your mind, how could you forget them?

Thoughts about Spn 13x08

SPOILERS! SPOILERS! SPOILERS!

Overall this was a solid episode, that had some fun moments, but in the end it felt to me that if you skipped it you didn’t miss out much. There was no real development to the plot (we are as close to find Jack as we were last week), from all the new characters introduced only one survived (though it is likely we will see her again) and there was little to no character development. As for the actual heist theme I was expecting a bit more; the heist was too simple and they could have done more with it. Maybe in hindsight the episode and its themes will become more important as the season continues, but right now it just feels like an average filler episode (not a bad episode though).

The new recruits

I think it was no coincidence that both Barthamus and “Smash”/Alice were supposed to remind us of two other characters: Crowley and Charlie. With Bart it is uber obvious as he even says that after Crowley became the king of hell he became the new Crowley aka the King of the Crossroad demons. Crowley remained a crossroad demon in many ways even after he became king; he continued to work with the Winchesters because they were useful to him, because this way they owed him. He was making deals still and he was a master in doing his homework, which is why he never underestimated the Winchesters. Bart is similar in that way; he has done his research on the Winchesters and knows what they are capable of. He made them an offer they couldn’t refuse, because even if they did, they risked he would have given the spell to Asmodeus. (Though unknown to them I think that was unlikely, as Bart seemed to plot against Asmodeus in the same way Crowley worked against Lucifer)

There is a difference though between Crowley and Bart. Yes, Crowley was a businessman, but he was always earnest about his business. He never collected souls before their time and if you made a deal with him he would always keep his side of the bargain. We can only speculate about this but I think Crowley wouldn’t have let Luther’s son die. It is implied that Bart did kill the son, though it is also possible the deal was only about curing the child and didn’t include preventing him to die from other causes. Either way it is cruel and the kind of business Crowley wouldn’t have approved off.

I’m glad that Bart died in the end. His only function would have been to replace Crowley as the demon who would occasionally help out the Winchesters; it would have cheapen the memory of Crowley. Instead though Bart’s presence highlighted the negative space Crowley’s loss leaves. It was clear that Sam and Dean wouldn’t mourn Crowley in the same way they did with Cas and Mary, but this episode in a way paid a tribute to him nevertheless.

And then there is Alice, who reminded me a lot of Charlie. Both young woman who are on the run, who introduce themselves with fake names and insist that they can take care of themselves, and wo are specialist in illegal activities (safe-cracking and hacking are oddly familiar; both give you access to something others tried to lock away). Both bond easily with Dean about ‘weird’ stuff, both end up on the bus stop after the Winchesters saved them, and even though Dean didn’t say it this time, Alice gave off a “little sister that I never wanted”-vibe as well. And of course the “Sorry, Charlie”-line, which I think was a weirdly specific reference? I had to look it up, but then again I’m not American, but it felt like someone really wanted to drop the name “Charlie” into the episode.

Which makes me think: Could it be that Alice is Charlie? Don’t ask me how that would work or why she didn’t reveal herself to the Winchesters, it is just a thought I wanted to write out. This a season that brings back characters that are supposed to be dead (Cas, Ketch, pretty sure Rowena as well), or different versions of them (Michael, Kevin). And also the recurring theme of things that look like other things (Asmodeus, shapeshifters, wraiths, ghouls). Speaking of, I think Luther kind of filled this role as well: he was introduced as a villain (a sadist and murderer) but turned out to be a victim all along. Still, what is the deal with Alice? She was set up in a way that they could bring her back (she owes the Winchesters their life and has a very specific set of skills) and we still hardly know anything about her (why did she make a deal for example). Maybe she was only introduced to give us a similar character to Charlie, but I admit I would have rather have the old Charlie back.

The Harry Potter of it all

Seems like Meredith Glynn is a Potterhead after all. Her first episode, 13x05, revolved around a horcrux like pocket watch and this week’s episode is full of Harry Potter references. First there was the fang of a basilisk, who of course played a big role in “The Chamber of Secrets” (I wonder though if it was a test by Luther to see if Sam would spot the difference or if Luther just didn’t know what he was buying). The Chamber of Secrets of course could only be open by the true heir of Slytherin and if you were able to speak Parseltongue. The vault could only be open with the blood of a man who had been to hell and back (and did everyone just forget that Sam had been in hell as well?). Luther couldn’t die as long as he was on his property. Harry was safe as long as was in Privet Drive (and as long as he could still call it his home). And who of course was introduced to us as a huge Harry Potter fan? Charlie again.

There were of course also some Indiana Jones references and some pure comedy gold with the whole vault sequence (and Alice asking herself if this guy really had been to hell) and Luther on a wheelchair. This is perhaps the reason why it felt to me not like a heist movie but rather an adventure film.

Some other things

- “After Crowley, I told myself, no more demons.”  This did sound like the kind of thing you say after a messy break up, right? When you swear you never date guys like this again.

- Dean calling Alice out on her shoes, saying “Hey Winona, the 90s called, they’d like their shoes back.” Like first of all, if you want to give someone fashion advice Dean, start with your brother and his fugly jacket. Second, this was oddly specific? Recognizing her boots as the kind of boots Winona Ryder wore in the 90s… like sure enough, Dean was a teenager in the 90s and was perhaps crushing on Winona, but it reminded me off fashion experts saying “the little black dress actress xy wore at the Academy Awards 1994”. It is the kind of detail you remember because you are interested in it. We know that Den is the more fashionable brother, but it makes me wonder how Dean would dress if he hadn’t grow up with a job/in a macho culture that taught him clothes have to practical, nothing more.

Overall an entertaining episode, which made me curious about Alice. Exited about next week’s midseason finale/ Wayward Sisters. Also, I am painfully behind on my dash, so it might take some time until I catch up with everyone else’s thoughts.

anonymous asked:

I just the other anon. What do you mean by there are double standards? Dean gets hate and has been through a lot.

Dean definitely gets hate too I just haven’t seen as much especially so out there like when I look him up it’s sometimes one of the first things I see.

I definitely agree Dean has been through a lot l. I always feel bad for my two boys.

Let me explain what I mean :) I can say a lot so I will try to be short lol.
I mean on the show and fandom, I will take both into account.

Fandom and the show still blames Sam for taking on demon blood yet no one blames really blames Dean for taking on the Mark of Cain. To me I am not saying its all right Sam took on demon blood but he already had it in him and his reasons to me at least added up. Also Ruby never gave a reason not to trust her before hand. While MOC was not needed and maybe just me but the reason didn’t feel as strong. Also I love Crowley as a character but the boys already didn’t trust him.
On the show in season 9 even they had a character being say Sam started the apocalypse. I don’t get how anyone blames Sam for the apocalypse he broke a deal and demon blood yes but starting the apocalypse? It started way before him, Dean broke one seal, Cass never admitted his part in it like letting Sam out, Bobby and Dean both at one point considered letting Sam kill Lilith, and no human knew Lilith was the last seal. Yet everyone blamed Sam and then seasons later writers had to be like yeah he did that. It didn’t go anywhere just had that scene to blame Sam again.
I don’t think any character on supernatural ever even once blamed Dean for MOC.

To me both are very similar mistakes that’s why I have that example.
It’s not just with Dean but even Cass.

Like going back to people blaming Sam for the apocalypse in the fandom and show itself. People still blame him even though many other people and factors played a part. Yet when Cass let’s out Lucifer in season 11 knowingly and even though Rowena is getting them out he is not blamed. He doesn’t even do it for the greater good but because he wants to be the hero. The writers actually have Sam take on the blame in season 12.
Cass never really gets blamed. If he does it is like by angels which are shown to be jerks then so no one cares what they say and are like poor Cass automatically. Or have Dean get mad him about things like Billie which saved the Winchesters so the audience won’t blame him for that. Also the show has the boys he like it’s all good by the end of an episode always!! Never blame him for the real things he’s done.

Sam was even blamed for Soulless Sam but Demon Dean never was. I don’t think Demon Dean should have been blamed but neither should have Soulless Sam. He didn’t just decide to leave his soul.

The way the show portrayed Sam at the start of season 8 even though he thought Dean was in heaven and didn’t want to be selfish. Yet it’s basically Lisa and Ben situation in season 6.

The characters that end up staying for a while are always automatically connected to Dean. Cass, it’s not romantic but they are closer friends. Charlie says I love you to Dean but not Sam even though both could have connected talking about hacking and “nerdy” things like HP. She thanks Dean for saving the world and basically makes fun Sam for not having the best luck with women which is harsh because by his bad luck it means they basically all died. Dean was shown to connect more with Kevin. I mean a book smart young boy who wanted to go to college but was chosen and had no choice just something inside him hmm yeah Sam would have no idea what that’s like. Jo had a crush on Dean so closer to Dean. Ellen and Jodie both seem to treat both boys equal. Bobby I thought did but in season 6 he said Dean was his favorite. People always say John thought Sam was his favorite but Dean thought that, Sam always thought Dean was the favorite. Mary though definitely got so many more scenes with Dean and emotional scenes. I’m happy Dean got that but Sam needs that too.
Also to me baby is the third lead lol and she’s obviously Deans baby. Only time he’s someone’s it’s like Becky or Lucifer or etc. Becky was a little extreme but she was fine then that episode in season 7. And Lucifer I think is obvious.

Also I just recently found out Dean and Cass have 5 pop things while Sam only has two? Dean having 5 I totally understand but why doesn’t Sam have the same and not only that guy Cass has the same as Dean? Sam and Dean are in every episode since day 1, they are the main stars both should have equal everything when it comes to these items. I’m sorry but I think that just makes sense.

I could honestly go on for so long about this. This is my short version even though it’s so long and I am sorry about that haha.

Again I love Dean and a lot of this is writing and such not Dean himself or anything like that. I personally just see a double standard in the writing and fandom.

The only time I see Dean getting hate is when it comes to Cass which again confuses me. It’s like you can say anything about Sam and Dean but again only from my perspective it seems like you say anything even small about Cass and so many get mad. Like how.

Ok this is already too long. I’m sorry again haha.
Bye :) thank you for asking:)

Cryptid Ghostbusters AU

So @thegirlsinthefirehouse and I have been amusing ourselves for the past couple of days with this really fun AU idea that all the GB 2016 girls are somehow cryptids or become them. Since Halloween is right around the corner we decided to share a few of our ideas

Patty the werewolf:
The newest of the bunch to become a cryptid, Patty is learning the ways of her fellow cryptid kind while juggling being a buster, studying to become a historian, and maintaining her romance with Abby (because fuck yes I ship them, how goddamn cute are they?)

Abby the Selkie
Born into the world of the supernatural, Abby is one of few selkies living in NY. Most of her family resides in Ireland where her people are more common and widely accepted, but Abby wanted away from the “old country” and took up paranormal research in the US quite some time ago. Abby keeps her seal skin in a locked trunk under her bed. Only Patty as the spare key.

Erin the Vampire 
The oldest member of the group, Erin is well over 200+ years old but still struggles with her vampirism, unwilling to take blood from humans. She feeds primarily on either synthetics or animal blood. True to form, she’s allergic to sunlight and can transform into a bat at will, but thanks to a botanical discovery made by Abby and Patty, Erin can spend a scant few hours in the sun so long as she wears the sunblock they created from bioluminescent algae 

Holtzmann the Shapeshifter
Another born into her cryptid nature, Holtz possesses the ability to shapeshift into any living creature at will. Her primary/favorite form is a white ferret with blue eyes. Due to her versatile nature, Holtz is the go-to person for figuring out sticky situation as well as the company’s primary tech guru. She and Erin have been happily dating for a few years, the two spending their evening flying together as bats when they have a free moment.

I’ve been thinking a lot about Supernatural lately.

My personal investment in the show died with Crowley, by and large. Between the legendarily huge insult of refusing to use Mark’s suggested last line (which was far superior to what made it to air) and then the fact that his sacrifice isn’t actually what stopped Lucifer (no, he got to overstay his welcome for another year) I was basically disenchanted with the entire show, especially after just how bad season twelve was. 

I’ve been thinking about how this show declined. Wondering where it went wrong, exactly. I think that the first nine seasons of the show are incredibly strong. Whether I’m in the minority on that, I don’t know. Aside from the first half of season six, which I think was in large part due to the writers still adjusting to the world outside of the original five season planned arc, the show was consistently good, consistently introducing new and interesting characters, fascinating lore. Even after nine years, it wasn’t stale. That’s more than a lot of shows can say.

I look at the show’s decline and I can see a few factors playing in; losing Ben Edlund being a primary one. This is the guy who created Crowley. He did some of the best character writing the show has seen. We’re talking “On the Head of a Pin”, “Abandon All Hope”, “Reading is Fundamental” – some of the best episodes of the entire series. I’m not positive on this, but I think Ben was behind Kevin as well? 

I count Sera Gamble as a substantial loss as well, but the show maintained quality for two years after she left as showrunner, so I can’t assign the downfall completely to her either. 

Trading the series off to Jeremy Carver, a man who I have no better word for than “idiot” was terrifying, but to my surprise, Carver didn’t fuck up as badly as he could have. S8 and S9 were still fantastic, still authentic Supernatural. S10 was a mixed bag, S11…the beginning of the end. The first sign of a lack of thought, a laziness, disrespect towards the characters and actors. 

But then, oh then…we got Robert Singer and Andrew Dabb. ROBERT “IT’S JUST A TV SHOW” SINGER. Granted Singer has worked in a showrunner-esque capacity before, but he’s never had this much control. Singer, who doesn’t respect the show he’s on, especially the continuity of the show he’s on. 

Andrew Dabb has written some of my personal favorite episodes (”Road Trip”, “There Will Be Blood”) and I can see Andrew Dabb trying, trying to keep this corpse of a show breathing, but one man is not enough. Poorly choreographed fights on suspension cables will not keep this show fresh and new. 

Here’s the writers we’ve had for this current era of Supernatural, S12 and 13 specifically:

  • Davy Perez: inexperienced. Did write “Stuck in the Middle (With You)” one of the only redeemable episodes in S12, but has only been with the show for two years, and Davy Perez wrote for American Crime before SPN, and has gone on record saying he’s best with in medias res kind of writing. Which is great, but that’s rarely a form that the show uses. His greatest strength doesn’t lie in the sci-fi/fantasy genre.
  • Meredith Glynn: another good but inexperienced writer, brought in during the Singer/Dabb era. She’s fantastic with one-off episodes and I think we’ll see her grow, but she’s had a weak showing with the plot episodes she’s been given (i.e. “The Future” and “Good Intentions”) Also, idk how I feel about her after “The Scorpion and the Frog”, where a character with the same name, relative appearance, personality, and position of an OC I created in one of my own SPN fics (I spelled it Bartimaeus, she spelled it Barthamus, but the odds seem astronomical that she and I would both create the same character for the same purpose) made an appearance. Be careful Meredith, don’t read too much fanfiction.
  • Steve Yockey: only six episodes to his name, inexperienced, and with only “Various & Sundry Villains” standing out as anything impressive. He writes Rowena well, I’ll give him that.
  • Eugenie Ross-Leming & Brad Buckner: I don’t need to go into detail here. Most of the older part of the fandom does enough fist-shaking-at-the-sky screaming “BUCKLEMMING!” in incandescent rage that it’s generally understood that these two have little to no understanding of the characters they’re writing. Is it out of character? Plot flimsy? Deus-ex-machina galore? Low quality filler episode? You’re watching a Buck-Lemming ep.
  • Robert Berens: our glorious beacon of hope in the writer’s room. He co-wrote the Wayward Sisters pilot with Dabb, churned out some fantastic episodes in S9 and S10 (EXECUTIONER’S SONG!)…but even Berens has had some shit eps in the past two years. Berens wrote “Beat the Devil”, debatably one of the worst episodes of the entire series run, in my opinion. 
  • And of course, we’ve still got Andrew Dabb.

So, that’s our show, kids. Two writers who have consistently turned out bad episodes. Three writers who are inexperienced with the show, one who might be stealing from fanfiction? (Side note, I’ve seen the plot of “Regarding, Dean”, another Glynn episode, in a lot of fanfic…and it was executed very similarly). Robert Berens, who is good, but not enough to support a weak staff. Our Glorious and Esteemed Showrunner Robert “It’s Just a TV Show” Singer (at the very least, it’s your meal-ticket, my friend) who is, from what I understand, in big part responsible for Mark Sheppard leaving (Dabb too, but Mark hasn’t gone into explicit detail.) And of course, Andrew Dabb, who tries, but in the wrong way. Shoe-horning in dead characters to fill a void in the show, to replace plot. A guy with a track record of missed opportunities. A guy who thought bringing back Gabriel again to give him the exact same redemption arc he’d already gone through, then to kill him in the exact same way as before with little fanfare (and no mention of him in the next episode) was a good idea

Emotional engagement? Nah, how about ten minutes of dick jokes. Giving spotlight to characters other than Sam and Dean? Nope, nerf them, kill them, write them out. 

Worse yet, there’s no one on the current staff that understands or knows how to write Castiel. I’ve already bitched about this, but he had almost no dialogue in the finale, and any plot Cas gets of his own evaporates or culminates in nothing. These writers don’t know what to do with Cas. Crowley’s last two years were much of the same. To quote Mark, “I wasn’t having any fun at all in season eleven and season twelve.” Also said by Mark about S12: “I was just repeating the same scene with Mark Pellegrino over and over and over again. It was just repetitive.” They didn’t know how to write Crowley. There was no plot, there was no arc for him, there was no character consistency. And when Mark spoke up, they fucked him over. 

Hell, they barely know how to write Sam and Dean! They just keep rehashing the same bullshit over and over again, pretending it’s new. 

TL:DR, I wish SPN would have bowed out with Grace. S11 wasn’t fantastic, but it would’ve been a fine finale season, and the last episode felt like a series finale. Everything since has felt forced, more or less. There’s been some great moments and characters (Mick and Ketch were cool additions, of course they killed Mick off far too soon, Jack is precious, all of Jody’s new kids are wonderful) but overall the show has lost its spark. It’s just more of the same, but worse. There’s no tension. 

I…just don’t care about these characters anymore. Because at the end of the day, nothing will really change. Sam, Dean, and Cas reached the ends of their character arcs and no new ones of any substance have been offered up. They won’t die, obviously. They don’t act like themselves. I feel a disconnect from the plot, from the show, from everything. And it’s sad, because there’s so many more stories to be told, if only they had the means to write them with respect to the continuity, the characters, and the fans.

Rant over. 

In God We Trust

Characters- God!Chuck x Reader, Sam, Dean, and Kevin because well read the author note.

Words- 1234(Yay! I am getting better at it being longer!)

Requested by @totallysupernaturaloneshots - YES YOUR REQUESTS ARE OPEN. Can I request a God!Chuck x Reader where the reader is very down and depressed and she has a complete mental breakdown so Chuck tries his hardest to calm her down and help to ease her depression? Lots of fluff please. ❤

Warning- Depression? Is God a warning, for some it might be, mental breakdown?

Author’s note- I love that I got a God!Chuck x Reader request, I am absolutely excited to write this because it’s Chuck still and I love him! I ended uses what happened in 11x21 as a basic because I thought it fit well. And this went a completely different turn than I originally thought, sorry?

Life and Death. Sometimes you wish that death was your only choose. You couldn’t help but feel really depressed. You felt alone, like nothing was going right. On top of all that the world was ending because of God’s sister who had beef with her brother. You sat on the Bunker steps which is where you like to think. Sam and Dean were out on a case where a man shot himself after he shot a co worker, there thinking it has something to do with Amara. You stayed behind on this hunt because you felt like it was a bad idea for you to go.

That was a few days ago, they should hopefully be back soon. Being on your own it okay at first but then it changes. You hoped the boys were okay, you haven’t really heard from them.

You sat on the steps looking out into the Bunker.

“You not just some…. Crazy spell or” You look to see Dean, Sam and Chuck. Dean stops in mid sentence and Sam and him looked around. Wait a second Chuck, you did a double take.

Convention Karaoke

Pairing: Osric x reader
Word count: 3,354

Warnings: kissing, fluffy stuff, anxiety (a little bit), someone gets hit in the head (if that counts), a little more heavy kissing, did I mention fluffy stuff? Like stuffed animals. 

Authors: Sam and Brittiny @crowleysplaythings
Authors note: Eeek! Second part! I’m hoping everyone is liking it so far! I know it’s a bit long, but I promise, it’s totally worth it! I really think there isn’t enough out there about Osric!

Summary: You go to the convention and meet Osric. In fact, you meet the entire cast and are invited to sing on stage for Karaoke with your favorite band! Osric and you are getting closer and you’re making great new friends.

Time felt like it was going so slow as you waited for this Friday’s convention to come. You couldn’t stop thinking about Osric, as you were a huge fan of Kevin Tran from his show Supernatural. You and Osric had been texting non-stop and you were so excited to finally meet each other. Although it had been only a few days, you felt this deep connection with him that you hadn’t felt since your last relationship. The way Osric was making you feel was more than words could explain. You two talked about so many different things, you learned that he loved to travel, and he learned that you loved to sing. What makes this whole trip even more exciting, and even more nerve-racking was that he said he had a surprise for you after you told him you could sing. With this thought in mind, you couldn’t come up with any idea of what he could be doing.

The Supernatural Project

Hey guys. I’m trying to get this project started and any support/reblogs/participation from ya’ll would be really helpful! Thank you! Love you all!

The Supernatural Project

The Supernatural Project is a collective of writers and artists working together on a single undertaking. There are so many talented, creative minds in the Supernatural fandom and the goal of this project is to pull that creative output into a single, united endeavor—no matter ships or headcanons. But it’s not work for only the writers and artists. Everyone is encouraged to participate, be it by submitting ideas or simply supporting our efforts.


So what is it, exactly?

First and foremost, the Supernatural Project is a jointly written fanfiction. It is not, however, a simple partner assignment. Rather, the intent of the Project is to pull together some twenty writers to create our own vision of Supernatural’s Season 11. Working together with a single plotline in mind, these writers will each create their own “episode” (chapter), in their own style, with their own words. However, these episodes will tie in together, creating one narrative—much like the writers of the actual show work together to do the same.

Please see the Writer FAQ for more information on how to get involved or become a writer yourself!


How can artists help?

Each “episode” (chapter) will have it’s own writer and story arc, much like every episode implemented in the show. Should artists want to be voluntarily involved, and should we get enough, each episode needs a cover. This is where the artists come in!

Please see the Artist FAQ for more information on how to get involved.


Is this backlash against the actual show, Supernatural?

Absolutely not. While there are some viewers who are unhappy with certain points in the canon, this is in no way an attempt to undermine it. Rather, this is simply a creative initiative bringing the minds of the fandom together.


I don’t write and I don’t create art. What can I do?

Plenty! First and foremost, The Supenatural Project needs support! Which means we need lots of followers, likes, and reblogs. But even more importantly, we need ideas! The wants and headcanons of the show come from everyone. You want to see a certain plotline executed during the narrative? Submit it as a prompt!

Please see the Prompt FAQ for more information.


I’m a little nervous about participating…

That’s fine! If you have any questions, our administrator will be happy to answer them. Don’t feel intimidated or shy—this is a healthy, happy place and we want to encourage everyone to play a part, no matter how small or big you want that part to be.


I have so many questions! Is there anyone who can answer them?

Certainly! Our administrator will be happy to answer any questions or address concerns, but before you submit an ask, please check out our General FAQ in case there’s already an answer for you!

Thank you everyone!

Christmas Prank War!

I’m sorry it’s so late!  But I wanted to write all three of your Supernatural prompts… I only got one finished so far and I thought I should just submit it to you now, before it got any later.  But the other two are still coming  :)  Anyway, I hope you enjoy!  Happy holidays!

Panda’s Notes: Oh my gosh!! ^w^ I loved it so much! It’s perfect and hilarious! So many thanks to you, anon! I wish I had a name to call you by. 

—————————————-

This particular year, there was exactly one week between Thanksgiving and the first of December.  In years gone by, back in Michigan with his mom, Kevin would have spent that time doing… nothing much in particular.  He and his mother weren’t religious and didn’t do that much for the holidays.  They certainly didn’t participate in some ridiculous prank war to “get in the holiday spirit”. 

Kevin had explained this all to Sam, after they found the entire contents of their refrigerator – every bottled condiment; the egg carton and the eggs inside; each individual grape – immaculately wrapped in gift paper, and tied with an elegant ribbon.  The paper was in festive red and green and gold and featured the Archangel Gabriel blowing his horn beneath the Star of David. 

The week after Thanksgiving was even less noteworthy in Sam’s life, historically.  John Winchester hadn’t made any special note of the impending Christmas holiday at all, beyond seasonal monsters. Dean tried, he generally saved his efforts for closer to the actual date.  So there was no strong holiday spirit at the end of November.

He spoke of this in wistful tones to Kevin, as he surveyed the drive leading to the bunker, which was lined with all manner of horrifying snowmen that would have made Calvin and Hobbes proud.  Various snow-monsters were chasing or eating snow-people (dressed in clothes that Sam, Kevin and Dean would have found familiar). 

An immediately recognizable and very detailed snow-Castiel sculpture reclined on the hood of the Impala, wearing a Santa hat and little else.  Sam wasn’t even going to go there.

—————————————–

These events had been preceded by days of other events – other pranks, originating from one extremely dedicated archangel, determined to force the spirit of Christmas upon the inhabitants of the bunker.

-          Sam, Dean, Kevin, and Charlie had all woken up the day after Thanksgiving with an enormous, life-sized gingerbread person lying in bed next to them.  Gunshots had been heard in Sam and Dean’s rooms as they’d shot the fucker.  Charlie turned out to have slashed her bed companion, and her sheets, with a knife she kept on her nightstand.  Kevin just screamed and flung himself out of the bed, knocking his head on the dresser and lying there in a daze. 

 -          On that same occasion as the gingerbread man, and adding to the chaos, the entire floor of all their bedrooms had been covered in plastic cups filled to the brim with egg nog.  Every inch of the floor.  There was no way to move without spilling several, and their rooms smelled of rum and nutmeg for days afterwards.

 -          All of their mirrors reflected them wearing Santa hats and beards.

 -          Small buckets of red-and-green glitter and confetti were placed over half-opened doors, spilling their contents on the unfortunates below.

 -          Every room in the bunker was filled about chest high (chest high on Kevin and Charlie, anyway, which was just over waist high for Dean and Sam) with plastic Christmas ornaments.  Thousands of them.

 -          Their shoes had electronic music buttons embedded in the soles, playing jaunty holiday tunes every time they walked.

 -          Every shirt in their closet got replaced with an ugly Christmas sweater.  Everyone complained except Charlie.  So the next day, Dean found in his closet that there was nothing but a goofy one-piece reindeer costume to wear.  Kevin had to wear a sexy elf outfit.  Sam, who had complained the loudest… Sam had a thong mankini.  With the Archangel Gabriel playing his horn on the small scrap of material covering his junk.  He didn’t leave his room until Castiel talked Gabriel into giving him a pair of sweatpants (they had the words “naughty AND nice” printed on the butt).

 It just went on and on.  And it wasn’t even December yet!

Charlie just thought it was hilarious.  “Come on, guys, it’s funny!  And it’s not like anything’s being permanently wrecked!” she’d say, completely missing the point that this was annoying as fuck.

Cas was of no use.  He firmly stated that he was going to remain neutral, and halfheartedly tried to convince the hunters that it was Gabriel’s way of embracing his identity as the Angel of Christmas once again.  Sam guessed that he couldn’t quite blame Cas for not wanting to get dragged into it – it was a little brother’s survival instinct.  Sam totally got that.

Speaking of annoying older brothers, though, Dean was also not helping.  He was allowing Gabriel’s pranks to light the twin fires of competition and revenge within him.  Sam could have told him that it was beyond pointless to try to out-trick the Trickster, but Dean was positive he was the superior prankster, and was dead set on getting Gabriel back. 

It was an exercise in futility, maybe, but Dean had made himself useful in at least one important way.  He’d been digging up relics that the Men of Letters had kept stashed away.  Dean had the intention of perpetuating this stupid prank war, but Sam and Kevin thought they could end it. 

“Okay.  We got – that sheet with the angel trap on it?” asked Sam.

“Check,” Kevin set aside the large rolled sheet of durable plastic with the Enochian symbols painstakingly drawn in permanent marker.

“The woven hair of Samson, for binding.”

“Check.” 

“The stone of Eden, to temporarily inflict mortal limitations on angelic beings.”

“Check.  Don’t lose that.  And… we have one of his feathers.”

“The feather of the archangel.  It’s his though, right?”

“That’s what Cas says.”

Sam sighed.  “Let’s hope.”

——————————————

“You Winchesters and Winchesters-by-proxy really love playing with fire, don’t you?”  Gabriel’s voice held an interesting combination of things – fury, admiration, defeat, and a calm promise of retribution later.

And just barely, perhaps only in Sam’s imagination, there was the tiniest hint of nervousness.

The archangel stood within the bounds of the plastic sheet, which Sam was securing to the floor.  His feet were bare; Sam had discarded the shoes and socks while he was down on the floor.  Gabriel’s arms were bound over his head with woven golden filaments, and attached to a crosspiece Sam had nailed in place on a wooden beam in the garage.  Kevin picked up the stone of Eden, wrapped in leather cords that formed a necklace, and slipped it over the archangel’s neck.  Gabriel’s eyebrows rose to his hairline.

“That thing?!  The stone of Eden?  You’re using the most valuable artifact in your inventory for this?  You lunks are dumber than I thought, and that’s saying a lot.  I genuinely believed you two were supposed to be the smart ones out of this crew of knuckleheads.”

“We are the smart ones,” Kevin allowed a hint of smugness to enter his voice, as he stepped around in front of the captive trickster-slash-archangel.  “Our plan went off without a hitch.”

“And now we’re here to set the terms for your release.”  Sam stood up and positioned himself next to Kevin.

“The terms for my release.  Right, okay.  Just so long as you two muttonheads keep in mind that I am filing all of this away in my immaculate, eternal memory.”

“As I said, here are the terms for your release,” Sam said loudly.  “They’re very simple.”

“Enough with the pranks already!!” Kevin burst out.

“…Are you serious,” Gabriel was giving them a seriously unimpressed look.  “You brought out the stone of Eden, the angel trap, to whine about being pranked.”

“It’s not even freaking December yet!” 

“It’s gotten completely out of hand, Gabriel,” Sam agreed.  “You need to tone it down.”

“Lemme think about it – uh, no.  Nope.  You two need to lighten up,” Gabriel shot back.

“We’re the ones calling the shots here,” Sam informed him.  “And we did anticipate you were going to be a dick about it.”

“So, check out phase two of the plan,” Kevin smirked and retrieved their final item.

Gabriel finally looked visibly nervous as the long golden feather made its appearance.  “Shit.  You two – where did you get that?!” 

“Your feather?  It was in the inventory.”  Kevin twirled the feather nonchalantly.   “Lore says it has great power.  Healing properties, destructive properties… and apparently, whatever it’s used for, the effect is amplified on the archangel it came from.”

Sam was slowly stepping around behind Gabriel.  He had decided that it was the kindest choice to let Kevin use the feather.  After all, he certainly was the one who got tickled the most by the archangel. 

Sam worked better with his hands, anyway.

He placed his fingers on Gabriel’s ribcage, not moving them yet.  Just waiting.

Gabriel jerked at the touch, but couldn’t get far with the strands holding him in place.  “I’ll give you one chance to call this off,” he threatened.

“Funny, that sounds like our line,” Kevin drew the feather across Gabriel’s exposed throat.  “Just agree to knock it off with all the pranking, Gabriel?”

“You little thug,” Gabriel snarled.  “You two really think you can threaten me-!”

“Let’s get him,” Sam suggested, and Kevin grinned in reply.

Sam started vibrating his fingertips in the bony ridges of Gabriel’s ribs, at the same time that Kevin lifted the hem of the archangel’s T-shirt and began drifting the feather across the smooth, quaking skin.  The effect was immediate: Gabriel jerked and began laughing helplessly, trying to dance away from the feather and fingers.

It was riveting.  One of the most powerful creatures left on earth, giggling and squirming like a kid, eyes crinkled closed, mouth stretched wide in a grin.  Sam felt his own grin starting in return, and he moved his fingers up to drill into Gabriel’s armpits.

A shrill shriek came in reply.  “You-hou-houeeeEEEEHEEhee!!”

“Aw, Gabriel, come on!  You can’t be that ticklish, can you?” Kevin crooned.  “Oh, wait, maybe you can, with this feather… does this reeeeally tickle?  How about right here?”

The feather dragged quickly from Gabriel’s waist, over to tease at the belly button.  Gabriel squawked and crumpled – or tried to, but the bonds around his wrists kept him stretched upright. 

Kevin and Sam both beamed at him.  “Wow, good spot, is it?” Sam asked rhetorically.  Gabriel was giggling too hard to reply.

“Ugh, you look adorable like this,” Kevin teased.  “Stupidly ticklish is a good look on you.”

Sam began tweaking Gabriel’s hips, and got a fun little wiggle out of the archangel.  “N-NOOOHOOOHOOO!!” he wailed.

“Oh, but yes, Gabriel!  It really is!” Sam mocked him delightedly.

“Here, Gabriel, let’s try this… I bet this is gonna be entertaining…”  Kevin was kneeling down by Gabriel’s bare feet.  The trickster feebly tried to kick at Kevin, but the prophet easily caught his leg and hugged it to him.

Sam quickly ran his fingers up Gabriel’s shirt, going for the archangel’s known killzone: between his shoulderblades.

They both attacked at once.  Kevin ran the golden feather over the sole of Gabriel’s foot, dragging it between the toes and swirling it around in the curve of the arch.  Sam danced his fingers over the space between the angel’s shoulderblades, where the wings would be, and actually felt his fingers buzz with sensation.

Gabriel was in hysterics, tears running down his face, high-pitched whinnying laughter pouring out of him, helplessly.

Sam and Kevin kept it up for as long as they dared, before letting the tickles die down slowly.

“Had enough, Gabriel?  We can keep it up as long as we have to, you know,” Sam said sweetly.

“Yeah, this is exactly as great as I thought it was gonna be,” Kevin gloated.

“Youhouhou, eeheeheeehee,” Gabriel giggled. 

“Allllll you gotta do is stop the damn pranking,” Sam reminded him.  “Then this can all stop!”

“I a-ham the angel of Chri-histmas, you know!” Gabriel chuckled weakly.  “I’m s-supposed to be spreading h-holiday cheer!  Youhou just tortured mehee for doing my job!”

Sam glanced at Kevin and refrained from rolling his eyes at the look of guilt on the prophet’s face.  “It’s just… too much, Gabriel!”  Kevin explained.

“I want to be able to wake up in the morning without flinching,” Sam added. 

“And not worry that I have to wear thigh-highs with candy canes on them again.”

“Or have everything I drink turn into eggnog, like some fucked-up King Midas shit,” Sam’s voice took on a little heat with the memory of that particular day.

Gabriel’s giggles were now just panting, as he slumped over in his bonds.  It was hard not to feel a little sorry for him… but it was on Sam to be firm.  Kevin might not have been around for Gabriel’s Pure Trickster Mode, but Sam Winchester remembered very well how days and days of tricks could get old in a hurry.

He folded his arms.  “Keep the tricks to a minimum, and play them on Charlie or Dean.  Leave us out of it.”

“We’ll get into the holiday spirit another way.  Like, a nicer way,” said Kevin, the soft heart.  “With hot chocolate and TV specials.”

“And don’t think that we won’t do all this again,” Sam said threateningly, wiggling his fingers at Gabriel and taking some satisfaction in watching him twitch with a gasp.

“All right, fine, you Grinches!”  Gabriel growled, twisting away from Sam as far as he could.  “I’ll keep the holiday spirit to a minimum.” 

Sam gently prodded the archangel’s ribcage.  “Pranks on the other two only?”

“All right already!!  Yes!”  Gabriel squirmed again.

Kevin joined in, poking Gabriel’s belly.  “But you’ll still watch Rudolph with us and stuff right?  You’re not mad?” 

“K-ihi-hid, cut it out!  Ye-hes, I’ll watch dahahamn Rudolph!”

Sam did roll his eyes at that, but at least Kevin softened the blow.  “All right.  Just remember, Gabriel, we’re keeping our eye on you.”  He went to step around behind Gabriel, but Kevin put a hand on his arm.

“Wait, Sam – how are we going to get him down?”

“I have a knife – ”

“No, Sam, but when he gets out, he’s gonna destroy us.”

There was a long pause.

“….We’ll send Charlie down to get you out,” Sam suggested, gripping Kevin’s shoulder and tugging him towards the door.

“You little shits are dead-“

“Kevin, your entire room is warded, right?”

“Yeah, but, let’s go over it all one more time before we get Charlie?”

“Actually, let’s check it twice.”

Request: Can I have a really fluffy KevinXReader story???

Request:  Can I request a one shot with Kevin tran. And he likes the reader? And maybe dean likes her too but she doesn’t know either of them do but they both do. And its just a constant competition and she ends up with one of them?

Request:  Hey! I love your blog and I was wondering if you could do a one shot where the reader is kind of chubby and self conscious and loves Archery and has glasses and this is kind of like the mind reading one but instead she likes Kevin and kevin gets hit with a mind reading spell and he can hear the readers thoughts and all he hears is just really bad puns that the reader is thinking but the reader is a huge nerd like loves Harry Potter and doctor who and is a tumblr nerd and stuff?

There's No Place Like Home - SPN 10x11 review (spoilers)

I always enjoy Robbie T’s Charlie episodes. She’s a wonderful character whom Felicia Day plays with awkward charm to perfection. Plus, the Winchesters need friends. The show suffers from not making greater use of a recurring circle of comrades for the brothers, but, as we know, the writers keep killing them off (Bobby, Kevin) or banishing them to Oz (Charlie) so, it was great to see Charlie Bradbury back at the bunker.

Dean is dealing with his “demonic tramp stamp” (the Mark of Cain) by following a twelve step programme of no booze, kale and detox smoothies. Yup, that’s gonna work…
