AKA THE SEQUEL TO “POEMS I WOULD WRITE YOU”

AKA COLLEGE!SHAWN PART TWO

MY MASTERLIST

word count: 10,143 (you didn’t think it was possible for this to be longer than the last one, did you?)

author’s note: thank you all SO, SO MUCH for all your feedback on part one (which you should probably read before you start this, and you can find it HERE). this second part covers sophomore year, and it’s a bit more nsfw so, like, don’t read this at work or your grandmother’s house, ya feel? i’m dedicating it to emily aka @saysweartogod bc she’s been my main cheerleader and literally revived herself from the dead to tell me to finish this. title comes from “you are in love” by taylor swift. enjoy xo


Your name: submit What is this?

i.

It had always been strange to you that time never felt consistent. One second could feel as though it stretched out into several eons, but three months could be compressed into one blink. As your freshman year of college ended, you felt like you weren’t looking around enough to notice the changes: the trees becoming lush with green leaves again, sweatshirts becoming t-shirts becoming tank tops, your boyfriend becoming more open, more kindhearted, more incredible with each passing day.

As your sophomore year progressed, you learned two things:

  1. You were in love, and
  2. You had no idea what to do about it.

But let’s start a bit before that.

12x19 Deconstruction: Part II - The Mixtape Exchange


(A MIXTAPE, GUYS. A GODDAMN MIXTAPE!)

So, yeah, there really wasn’t anything else I could possibly call this piece of dialogue, was there? Nope. Let’s set the scene:

Dean is at his computer. There’s a knock on the door. Cas opens it, pauses, and what we learn from this, by the way, is that Cas was waiting for a response and when he didn’t get one he proceeded inside, thinking Dean wasn’t there. What does this visual exposition tell us?

a) Dean’s bedroom is not off limits to Cas if Dean’s not there, because there’s trust
b) Cas didn’t come to the room looking for Dean

The reason Cas goes to Dean’s room is to get the Colt - the mixtape is just his excuse. So, then, what an utterly beautiful tool of exposition this innocent piece of prop becomes, and how incredibly well it’s used to highlight exactly what the problem has always been in this relationship: the lack of fucking communication. In fact, not only does the mixtape highlight the lack of communication, it goes further as it turns that problem on it’s head completely when, suddenly, both of these men open up to each other. And the fact that Cas is there on a mission, that he’s effectively playing Dean, doesn’t take away from all the truth that is in this exchange as well. Not that there’s complete honesty. Not just yet, but it’s coming. Oh, it’s absolutely on the horizon. It has to be. And this exchange is, as so many others, riddled with subtext which makes the interpretation of it layered to the extreme, but what I have on offer today is my take. So, here goes:

wanna see my favourite thing they censored in the eng ver

in ep 21, when Candy is looking for Lys’s parents, she comes across Cas and Rosa that are kind of arguing when Cas says this to Rosa :

and Rosa gets SUPER offended… which doesn’t really make sense ? Cas isn’t saying anything bad here, it’s just a fact. so I checked the french ver to see what he was originally saying… and what he says is actually much more… suggestive in french than in english.

but at the same time, I KNEW that the ~suggestive english dialogue~ existed and not this piece of crap. I KNEW I read an english ver that was not censored. So I looked for it… and gave up when I couldn’t find it on yt. maybe it was just my imagination ?

then I finally found it, when I was cleaning my files. it’s a screen that comes from tumblr apparently. so here is what Cas originally says before they decided to censor him (??) :

and Rosa gets rightfully offended this time.

What might happen since Fred Andrews could be dead

*Somewhere in Chicago a Mary Andrew’s doorbell rings*

*Mary opens it and see half the teenage population of Riverdale*

Mary: Ooookaaay…

Archie: Mom, we wanna live with you.

Mary: Archie, I told you on the phone, I can’t take all of you -

Veronica: Mrs. Andrews, you are our only hope.

Mary: Veronica-

Veronica: My parents are guilt free criminals. Cheryl’s mom is a drug dealer who could care less that her daughter almost died. Betty and Polly’s parents are the Coopers. Archie makes terrible life choices, and Jughead is following suit and Ethel and Kevin need a lot of hugs. We need parenting!

*The teenagers proceed to give their best sad puppy eyes*

Mary: *sigh* Okay, just for today.

*She let’s them in*

Riverdale Teens: YAY!

Veronica: Get ready to Mom like you never Mom before!

Dialogue Prompt

“This doesn’t affect you.”

“So? Let me help. If it affects you, it affects me.

"How?”

“Because I care about you.”

“No, you only care about yourself, but you need me so you’re pretending you give a crap about my well-being.”

“Fair enough.”

Claude: Chloe, you’re a free and poetic soul, like the beach. That’s why I decided to take you here. Are you disappointed?

Chloe: Kidding? It’s a perfect guess! I love sea… it’s always had a comforting effect on me, and I’d be more than happy to share my comfort with you.

Swan Queen Week: Best Friend Romance

Emma finally asks Regina out on a date but she has some apprehensions. Part 3/3

he never planned this far ahead so of course he would freak out and not know how to react when his flirting actually works on her

Today’s dose of catdads: Winston’s Bananas

After @joasakura mentioned how cats like to chew on crap, this happened.  She’s responsible for half the dialogue, so consider her a co-author as well as villainous instigator.

“Sir, have you been near my bananas?” Winston asks when Jack comes into the kitchenette.

Jack glances away from the cup of coffee he’s pouring long enough to look over to Winston.  "I have no idea what you’re talking about.“

Winston lifts the bunch of bruised and battered bananas in his big hand up to eye level and peers over his glasses at the suspicious human teeth marks.  

Jack is his commanding officer.  It would be inappropriate to accuse him of lying, and Winston tries hard to be appropriate.  Sometimes he thinks he’s the only one around here who does.

But there’s a reason he’s honed his skeptical face into a tool of precision, and it’s for moments just like this.

Jack glances at the bananas, also notes the suspicious human teeth marks, and then meets Winston’s eyes for just a second before politely unfocusing just a touch.  Jack and Gabriel get it, when it comes to body language, and Winston appreciates that.  Especially since they have a tendency to stare people down if they don’t think about it, and that makes Winston either want to duck down ingratiatingly or punch something.  "Maybe it was Lena,” Jack suggests after a moment of thought.  “You know how she gets on her sugar crashes.”

It’s a struggle to keep his expression from shearing off into total disbelief.  Instead, Winston lifts his other hand and measures the size of the bite marks with thumb and forefinger.  Not that he should need to.  He thinks it’s pretty evident.  "Sir, whoever this is could fit half of her head in their mouth.“

Jack’s tail puffs with indignation.  "Hey!”  

Winston sighs.  He didn’t mean it as an insult, but if the shoe fits…

“That’s not the only thing he can fit,” Gabriel says, reaching past Jack for the coffee.

"GABRIEL.”

Winston sighs again.  God, please don’t let this scar his love for bananas.  They already ruined his ability to enjoy corn.

Katherine Kelly in ALL the Things: HIM (1/?)

“You gave it me as a present.  Remember?  You found it on that beach in Dorset that weekend when we went just after your dad left.  Oh, and it rained all that first day, remember? You did those magic tricks in the BnB to keep us amused.  Is it to punish me? When you act out–is it to punish me for Victor? The baby?  They were precious to me too–those years we had together–after the divorce, before I met Victor.  You know that.  But I couldn’t put my life on hold forever.  And, when you’re ready to get on with yours, you can do it knowing that you don’t have to worry about me.  I’m not alone any more.  It was for the best.  I did the right thing.”
