That’s why the episode made me adore him. He sees the strength of Yuri, and wants to see it himself, he wants to know him sincerely. He admires him all this time, and he just wants to help this friend, this boy he admires, Otabek wants to help Yura to be himself. He wants to discover and stand beside the “real Yuri” and …. Damn, it’s beautiful!
This entire episode was a reminder that these characters are just kids.
Like Jughead loves his family and all he wants is for them to be back together and doesn’t give a damn about whether or not his dad is a mess because he’s his dad and I think that’s so beautiful and inspirational, like he is grateful and loves him despite it because he’s family in the end.
can you say something positive about this show bc i truly feel horrible and all i see are negative comments
sure thing fam! I’ve got a million and one great things to say about shadowhunters!
let’s start with the cast…..oh man the cast, have you ever seen or heard of a lovelier group of people? a sweet and perfect redheaded angel? a cow-loving farmer sunflower man? a sexy british rapscallion? a latina goddess who is the sweetest angel in the world? a hilarious but also very profound and extremely talent soft brooklyn hipster? the most talented dancer/human to ever grace the world who is also a complete wondeful dork? the sweetest and funniest and most wonderful person who ever did wear an ascot? they’re perfect
nothing makes me happier than their friendships with each other and just their general sweetness :))))
i mean every dynamic of theirs is adorable and hilarious? kat and alberto’s friendship, domberto’s antics, the parabatri feels, dom’s lil crush on matthew, the esther/shelby/shumdario friendship! em being an older sister to kat!! how lovely are they all!!
and of course, of course, how earnest they are towards the show because they know how important it is to all of us, and it’s heartwarming to see all the effort that they put into the show, as well as the amount of respect and compassion they have while interacting with fans is the most wonderful thing
and of course, the fact that the people behind the show always listen to and respond to fan feedback, positive or negative! they really care about us, and it’s lovely to see :)
personally, i think the writing of the show has gotten amazing! season 1 was fantastic, but all of the sort of cringey dialogue and ‘wow, nobody would actually say those words’ is gone and everything is much more textured and real, and it’s really really really living up to the potential of its premise!
it’s got a gritty NYC setting and its about badass angelic soldiers fighting a demon apocalypse, all while battling these insidious problems inside their own society as well, with no real moral high ground to be achieved, but really just a scramble for survival and trying to do the right thing, and the tone of the new season is JUST PERFECT for that
i think the show has such amazing and dimensionalized relationships like i haven’t seen in a lot of much more highbrow fiction - the romantic stuff too, but i love how important and well-written platonic and family relationships are in the show!
you look at a family like the lightwoods, and they’re so real - not just the love that they have for each other, but also the issues that they face, and the struggles between parents and children and siblings. amazing. well-written AS FUCK
the bonds between alec and izzy and jace!! are so well-written, so well-acted!! the relationships between luke and clary/simon/maia!! astonishingly good
there’s so much texture and richness to all of them it’s crazy
but not JUST those super close familial relationships - every single interaction has me floored with how great it is, including ‘rare’ ones like jace and magnus, or clary and alec, or clary and magnus, or magnus and izzy
every character has such great acting chemistry with one another, and so every relationship just comes across as rich and real in a way that a lot of lesser shows can’t accomplish
let’s talk about acting! how amazingly has every cast member improved over the course of the show? even if they didn’t start off the first season as amazing, can you believe how great everyone is? how beautifully kat captured the grief of losing jocelyn in 2x05? how amazingly dom is portraying jace’s inner struggles and suffering about valentine and his identity? how much dimension and depth harry can give us in just one glance? how matt perfectly portrays the inner conflicts of a man who was never allowed to show his true feelings on his face? how beautifully alberto shows the struggle of not belonging anywhere that you used to call home? with what grace emeraude brings us izzy’s trials and suffering? how perfectly isaiah depicted not only the grief over losing everything - his world, his parabatai, the woman he loves, but also the struggles of having to get up from the pain and be there for his children? amazing. hats off to all and emmys all around
every character also has so much - so much - dimension?
like, not a single one of the characters is the type of YA-fantasy caricature than you see so much in this genre - each of them is fully fleshed out with flaws and strengths, and each character interacts and copes with the horrible events of their lives in completely different ways, and it’s just lovely to see that kind of commitment to character even on a fantasy/action-driven show, and that not all of it has to be directly addressed and shoved in your face, but can be communicated through subtleties of acting and writing
and each of them has their own critical/crucial role to play in the story? none of them are incidental or disposable and i love it!
the special effects in season two are SO! damn!! good!! holy hell did you see the warlock fight this episode? beautiful! astonishing!
i love the mythology of the show! it’s so crazy interesting to explore this world, because it’s not the type of world you see in a typical YA-low-fantasy type of setting - the shadowhunters’ society is such a new and refreshing mythology, with all of their customs and their ceremonies and their laws and myths and angels and runes - i love seeing them unveil more and more of it, because it’s honestly so original and interesting
like did you see the rune ceremony in this ep? it was almost haunting b/c i just love thinking about this ancient order of angelic warriors and of course all of the complications of the societal hierarchies in relation to the other types of magical races
and don’t get me started on the other types of mythologies, especially warlocks! i love the idea of all these esoteric spells and potions and crap that shadowhunters don’t even know about and can’t even imagine the power of - it’s so interesting and i love how they’re fleshing it all out bit by bit
and i love the merging of the regular urban NYC setting with the shadow word, in locales like the jade wolf, the hotel dumort, and even the insitute - how interesting and seamless it seems sometimes? it just gives the world so much texture
and of course, the romance is great! like i said, every actor has fantastic chemistry with each other - even if they’re not endgames like simon/maia or climon, they’re so well-acted and well portrayed
malec is fantastic - i’ve almost never seen a relationship on a show portrayed with such gravitas and realness! i love how they didn’t let either character get subsumed by the relationship, but they’re also not ignoring the existence of it to give the character their own storylines independent of it
and of course it’s so darn cute :) and harry and matthew put so much time and effort into it and im so thankful for them
Everyone was firing on all cylinders for this one. Rie boarded that heartbreaking opening scene on TOP of her directing duties. Mira killed it with that beautiful scene at the river. I love Sarah’s somber hospital scene and her kick-ass forest assault on Shredder’s complex. CT’s Baxter scene was both hilarious and weird. And damn, Adam’s final battle on the burning rooftop was just breathtaking; so raw and intense, it felt like a brawl 4 years in the making!
And overseeing it all were Ciro and Brandon, who guided us with a hardcore and specific vision of what this finale needed to be.
Episodes like this remind you that you’re working with some of the best damn talent in the industry. It’s humbling to work alongside them.
Supernatural: 10 Things I Learned From Tonight’s Episode.
Season 12, Episode 12: “Stuck in the Middle (With You)”
1. Blatant Tarantino references are abound, and I love every second of it.
2. Dean is persistently uncool with anyone hitting on his man.
Check out them Rage Dimples.
3. Dean has a unique approach towards “teaching Cas to flirt.”
I.e. unabashedly flirting with him himself.
4. It’s been shown time and time again that keeping secrets on this show is never, ever a good idea, and it almost invariably leads to someone almost dying. And yet, everyone inexplicably continues to do so.
Evidently, it runs in the family.
5. Nevertheless, Mary canonically considers Cas to be part of her family, takes shit from no one, and it is beautiful.
6. Even after all these seasons, Supernatural still knows how to make my heart stop.
And hurt like a bastard.
7. Cas has now canonically told Dean he loves him.
Moreover, it was immediately followed up by “I love all of you,” implying that the first one was addressed specifically to Dean.
Also, the simple act of a male-presenting character saying “I love you” on this show is a tremendous step towards emotional health for everyone involved.
8. Dean unarguably loves Cas back.
Dean refusing to leave Cas behind (even at the possible cost of his own life) is all I’ve ever wanted from this show yet it makes me want to rip my lungs out every time I get it.
Also, look at his face. This is the face of a creature with zero sense of self worth realizing he means something to his family and friends. Just, fuck me up, SPN.
9. I was sure this ep would end in tragedy, but instead it ended with Dean tenderly escorting his recovering boyfriend home.
God bless you, Andrew Dabb.
10. Castiel, Angel of the Lord, is one of the most dynamic, three-dimensional, and genuinely altruistic characters I have ever seen, and every time I think about him and how far he’s come I get an ache in my chest because it’s so damn beautiful.
Nothing to add here, just my incoherent wailing.
Rating: 11/10. This episode is everything I hoped it would be, and more. Excluding an explicit confirmation of gayness (which would always be ideal), it was a perfect tribute to the enduring love between Cas, Dean, and his human family. Well done, SPN!
nonnie requested: Pls will u do something for savitar!barry
x reader? Hes kinda sexy despite being called pizza face by cisco. Anyway
something with reader is the only person this version of barry care about cuz
reader stand by his side while everyone turn away from him in d future. Make it
angst pls. Thanks.
A/N: Ah I laughed when Cisco called him, ‘pizza face’ and
other things like I’m so proud of my son giving sass. This obviously contains a
bit of spoilers from the finale episode of The Flash so be warned if you haven’t
watched. I thought it was going to be all good despite one of my faves dying in
the place for Iris and then Barry leaving. Damn it Grant, you ripped my heart
out with feels. Ships are closed for the time being and as always requests are
open unless stated otherwise by me!
Relationship(s): Savitar/Reader, Barry Allen/Iris
West, Barry Allen & Reader (unrequited love)
“Y/N. .Y/N, I need my goddess to wake from her beauty sleep.”
That oddly familiar voice ringing through your ears as you slowly blinked from
your slumber. Your E/C eyes blinked more to adjust from the dark surroundings
as you looked around to the source of the voice until they met Barry’s- no that
didn’t look like Barry. Least the one who knew, the left side of his face
looked burned with as his grin only seemed to grow bigger at the sight of you
awake. “Good morning Y/N. My, my I could never forget how beautiful you are. What’s
the matter Y/N? You don’t recognize the man who calls you his equal, but yet it
hasn’t happened yet. Heh, guess I could use you against Barry. Won’t that be
fun my goddess hm?”
You squint in disbelief as you tried crawling backwards but
bumped into something as you looked to see what it was. Your eyes widen in
fear, this was Savitar—the time remnant of Barry as depicted from the armor you
bumped into. You remember the speedster telling you to be careful out there after
you left S.T.A.R labs earlier that day to get a break from all the mess since
it you’ve gotten so stressed. “G-Goddess? I’m sorry S-Savitar but I don’t b-belong
to anyone, I have no idea what y-you speak of. I-I though you ha-ated everyone
since t-they turned their b-back on you.” You studdered through your words as
the time remnant only kept his sadist grin as he crouched down to you where you
were on the ground.
“Oh I do hate everyone Y/N but not you, my sweet Y/N. You
see while everyone else turned their back on me, you didn’t. You stayed and
refused to leave my side no matter how much they called me, a monster. A
monster Y/N and have the nerve to call you one too! But no you stayed and before
we both fell in love with each other, I let you be my goddess. I intend on that
still happening but first we need to get rid of this Barry Allen. Join me Y/N,
join me and I will give anything you could ever wished for. All you need to do
is accept.” Savitar offers his pale hand to you, “We can rule side by side and
have to world begging for mercy on their knees. Including the ones who hurt and
bullied you for being different.” He chuckles darkly while waiting for you to accept
as you looked at the male beside you.
For long as you remembered you were bullied for being, well
being you. You didn’t care about the feminine things like makeup and dressing
up for boys. You were mocked and laughed at because you loved science and mathematics,
even having the stereotypical nerd look with thick glasses, braces, and bad acne.
However you blossomed into a beautiful women today, still wearing glasses although
sometimes using contacts and no more metal on your teeth with acne cleared up.
All those memories came back to you when Savitar spoke as your fists clenched,
no you were to be nice and submissive right? No you were tired of being considered
weak as you looked back up to the time remnant before clasping your hand with
his, after all you could have anything right? “I accept your offer Savitar as
long as you stay true to your word.” You say as he pulled you and him up on
your feet as he looked at your hand before you.
“Oh don’t worry Y/N, I fully intend on keeping it as long as
you help me get Barry Allen.”
[ time skip; WARNING SPOILERS
UP AHEAD ]
“Y/N please come back, he’s messing with your mind!” The scarlet
speedster yelled out as you were by Savitar without his armor that Barry had vibrated
and broke. Needless to say, Team Flash was a bit shocked to see you beside the
other. You looked different from the last time they saw you, from wearing dark
F/C clothing as you grinned that could match Savitar’s. “Y/N please. Don’t do
this to yourself!”
You shook your head, “No I made up my mind Flash. I’m tired
of feeling like I’m supposed to be weak and feel worthless, do you have any
idea how many people hurt me? Do you know how many I cried myself to sleep?” You
lashed back as you leaned your head on Savitar’s shoulders. “I’m happy being Savitar’s
goddess. After all he says he’d given me anything as long as I help stop you besides
you all turned your back on him and me.” You say with a snarl as everyone
looked shocked from what you were saying as you kept your gaze at Barry.
“Awe see? That’s my girl, she’s not as cute and innocent as
you thought huh?” Savitar says as he pressed a kiss on your forehead. “I like
this version of her.”
Barry was furious as went to attack on Savitar from you as
the time remnant hit the ground hard from his blow. “You tried to use her against
us, it’s not going to work Savitar. Give it up because you are no god.” He says
as Savitar laughed before receiving another blow from Barry, the other slumping
onto the ground before looking at you before you pushed the red clad hero aside
for Savitar. Barry went to check on the others, hopefully maybe they could talk
sense into you.
“No, no, no. Savitar come on, wake up for me.” You say as you
bend down to check on him and stroke his face before his eyes snapped open. It
made you give a sudden jump of surprise. He looked at you smiled before giving you
a small kiss and saying he’ll be back. You watched as what happened next would
be the last you’d see of Savitar.
The time remnant counterpart went to take an attack on his present
self before a loud bang from a gun rang throughout. Savitar took a step backwards
before collapsing as your eyes followed Barry’s, it was Iris. She had shot the
one you fell in love with as you quickly ran to Savitar but it was too late as
you began to shatter from existence. It was the Barry that loved you because
you could never have the Barry who was engaged to Iris.
“Y/N!” You heard someone cry out but ignored it as all the
love of your heart was now gone just like Savitar was.
@loganlaurice from @netflix Series @dearwhitepeople. It’s insane to me how many people haven’t watched this show yet, it’s pretty damn amazing. The cast is AMAZING and I’m telling you, Barry Jenkins directs an episode, I won’t tell you which one, but it’s BEAUTIFUL and so well done. They just got lot for a second season, GET ON IT! You will not regret it. #beautiful #netflix #dearwhitepeople
[For a meta about Reservoir Dogs and Tarantino’s use of gay subtext, click here.]
I don’t want to be the person who ruins everyone’s fun, so I’m saving my one big criticism of this episode for last. This meta is completely positive, even saccharine, until the very last paragraph. Also, I’m borrowing one of my favourite AO3 tags as a title because, let’s face it, Crowley was the real hero of this episode and where the action was, and that’s perfectly okay and long overdue. Crowley’s been around for years now, and he’s gone through huge bouts of character development, and yet we still know next to nothing about him and he’s often treated like an afterthought, both by our heroes and by the writers. This episode finally (finally!) corrected that, because no matter how intriguing and plain beautiful everyone was, Crowley was magnificent - as I fully expected him to be.
After all, they’re good - but he’s Crowley.
Like anyone with eyes, I loved everything about this episode, and especially how it was filmed. I have to say - this is the first episode in a long time that actually had me in tenterhooks about a possible character death, because you never know, right? Theoretically, Crowley could die, and so could Cas. Theoretically. And also the music, did I mention the music? I think that scene of Cas crawling away from Ramiel and the shot of Ramiel stabbing him - that’s just become my favourite Supernatural scene ever, bar none. It was so powerful and dramatic and visually magnificent and that damn music - wow.
I adored that symbolism, because Cas’ been a Christ figure for a while now, and seeing him like that, on his back, defeated and stabbed by a lance - you can’t get more Golgotha than that. Beautiful stuff.
I also loved that this episode was, in a way - off-centre. Sam and Dean were there, of course, but the story was not focused around them. The real protagonist was the supernatural world itself - Cas, Crowley, Ramiel; even Lucifer, to me, was more present than he’s been in a while, what with this vague threat of his child hanging over the world, and him taunting Crowley and flashing his red eyes at this most undemonic demon in the very last scene. The truth is, I love everything about Sam and Dean, and that includes the incredibly talented actors who play them, but I feel the show could benefit greatly from approaching their story from a different perspective every once in a while. I’d love to know more about their childhood, for instance, or about this world of monsters and hunters around them; and a completely Outsider POV episode is, at this point, something I’d probably sell half my soul for.
Anyway - lately, this show reads like very good fanfiction, and considering how engaged, loving and talented this fandom is, this is high praise. I particularly appreciate the fact they’re going back to important plot points and filling them in with completely new details - after all, we’ve been wondering for years what’s up with demonic eyes, or how Crowley became king in the first place (or, at least, I know I did). This new class of demons appearing out of nowhere - creatures powerful enough to wield an archangel’s weapon - that’s incredible stuff. I’m guessing we’ll see more about them, and I can’t freaking wait.
So, yes - Ramiel was spot-on. Jerry Trimble managed just the right mixture of underwhelmingly normal and terrifyingly amoral - so much so I’m sort of sad we didn’t get to see more of this character, even if everything about him, including his death, was handled just right - there was no room for anything more.
My one slight criticism there would be the fizzling nature of Cas’ abilities. For instance, didn’t we establish that Cas can smell lies? So why couldn’t he guess Mary was hiding something? And what about demons’ true forms? I always assumed Cas could see that (was it ever stated in canon? it must have been), and I was therefore almost disappointed that Cas couldn’t recognize Ramiel for what he was. Maybe it can be explained away by him slowly becoming closer and closer to a human being - I don’t know. In any case, I’m truly appreciating how obsessed everyone seems to be with him lately. After years of taking angels for granted, we’ve got two characters in short succession fangirling over angels (in a creepy, murderous and definitely non-con way, but still) - and, yeah, I know that basically everyone spent the entirety of Supernatural pointing out how different and unique Cas is, and I’m grateful for that, but it’s also nice to get a reminder that angels are awesome (in the other sense of the word) in and of themselves.
(I’m still loving Mr Ketch, by the way. Aaaaaw.)
Let’s now come to our unsung hero: Mr Crowley.
Crowley was magnificent in all this. And we’ve now learned he never seriously planned to become King of Hell - my headcanon, which I’m considering confirmed, is that Crowley simply wants control. He’s been tortured for a century or more as some demon tore his human soul out of him, and he’s never putting himself in that position again, which is very sensible of him, and also very Scarlett O’Hara.
We all felt it didn’t we? We all wanted it to work out between Paris and Livia but we were all cautious. Gosh darn it Paris
He and Lady Capulet can just die. And now Rosaline is gone Livia needs protection. She got so swept up by Paris she spilled all the beans. Maybe Sister can help her out? I hope so.
But to the most important thing: THE BALCONY SCENE!
Back pain? Gone. Fatigue from cooking all day? Pfft. I. Am. Alive. It was so damn beautiful I wanna cry. She’s all he has and he needs her. He NEEDS her. Wade Briggs delivered those lines let me tell you. Rosvolio was everything this episode. Curse on the house of ABC for doing this show dirty I could watch these two all day.
Ahh… good ol’ memories. The very first kiss between Shin and Eun-Tak in episode 6… a kiss so pure, innocent, and naive that all the snowflakes started floating upwards. What is gravity? Apparently it doesn’t work in the presence of these two sweethearts. So what makes this kiss important being their first kiss? Well this kiss set the stage for Shin to start thinking about life instead of dying. This kiss was initiated by Eun-Tak not because she necessarily loved him at the time, but because she didn’t know the consequences of Shin’s sword and what love really encompasses. This kiss compared to their last kiss is totally different in terms of romance and their mutual feelings. Shin was still only learning what it meant to be in love and Eun-Tak was still only desiring love. This is seen in their body language as Eun-Tak was struggling to stay on her tiptoes to hesitantly peck him and Shin’s shoulders were completely slumped forwards in utter dumbstruck. A perfect way to get our silly couple rolling. Despite this kiss being not hot and sexy, I appreciate this kiss as I love Shin’s reaction to Eun-Tak kissing him… to think this supposedly “weak” and “defenseless” girl can easily make this 939 yo Goblin confused and break down his defenses. But I desperately needed more than this kiss.
Now this was a proper “first kiss” of them being an official couple; what better way than for Shin to redeem himself by initiating the kiss while Eun-Tak asked for it in episode 10. The setting was perfect for our silly couple: fun date in a tent while drinking soju, a kick-ass entertaining performance, and a sweet and happy kiss shared between the two. This kiss was literally the definition of happiness as their kiss even has it’s own Sun shining a random light of unknown origin. It was quite hot of Shin to grab her face so gently as he kissed her and then Eun-Tak stole another kiss right afterwards. This made me love Eun-Tak more as she’s not afraid to ask for kisses… I understand why, lol. Just look at who her boyfriend is. I do like this kiss a lot, as said by Eun-Tak herself, “It’s perfect.” It was the perfect kiss to show how they mutually love each other after coming to an agreement that they will both fight to be together as compared to episode 4′s kiss. I wasn’t expecting anything hotter or sexier since our couple finally got together after jumping the hurdle of Eun-Tak finding out the truth behind Shin’s sword. But still, I needed more! lmao
The cute photo booth kiss. That’s all that really needs to be said about this kiss, lol. It was a cute and off-guard peck that Eun-Tak gave to Shin which left him flustered and giggling like a little girl. >.< The funny thing is that Eun-Tak had pure intentions while it left Shin thinking about (most likely) not so pure thoughts … this girl can literally kill Shin on the spot whether she removes his sword or not, lmao. I just can’t get over how Shin caught himself using “tiny” and “small” in the same sentence! And then he proceeded to say he wants to come here every day, lmfao. This entire scene in episode 12 is adorable and especially how pure Eun-Tak’s intentions were to 1) get a picture with him and 2) give him an excuse to see his sister. Of course, it wasn’t enough to satisfy my fangirl desires and I was desperately hoping… praying… for a kiss that would exceed my expectations.
Now we’re talking… this kiss swept me off my feet when Shin turned back to give her such a desperate, passionate, and engraving kiss before his imminent death. THIS WAS THE KISS WE WERE ALL WAITING FOR 13 EPISODES LATER!!! Just look at this beauty! Till this day… I love this kiss so damn much, it’s the kiss of the century. Just look at how Shin cupped her face as he kissed her with such a passion knowing that he might disappear forever. Look at Eun-Tak unable to say or do anything as she just closed her eyes in compliance… worried why he would suddenly kiss her like that. It was the perfect hot and passionate kiss to show how our couple loves each other and wants to be together. THEIR CHEMISTRY WAS OFF THE CHARTS! OMO! The only that that disappointed me about this kiss was how they DIDN’T FULLY CLOSE-UP FILM IT! Like why you gonna film a friggin hot kiss but not show us the whole thing close up??? Ugh… That was the good stuff there. >.> Despite my love for this kiss, I was praying that an even better kiss would happen once she was 29 yo.
This kiss was sooo good… a slightly melancholic kiss that was filled with feels as Shin immediately embraced a frantic Eun-Tak into a kiss as she finally remembered him. All I can say is that this kiss was so good from the angle it was filmed, from how it focused on Shin’s hand tightening on her, and to how both Eun-Tak and Shin’s eyes were filled with so much pain, sadness, and longing for each other. I started ballin like a baby cause they needed to be in each other’s arms and I was so happy when she finally remembered him! Ugh… To think this all happened in episode 15… T.T But this wasn’t the kiss I was waiting for… there was something else I needed to see from the episode 14 preview.
Just another really lovey dovey peck between the two… oh wait… two pecks cause Shin wanted another one, lmao. I just love their height difference… *incoherent giggling* BUT I’M STILL WAITING FOR THE BEST KISS DAMNIT! DON’T FAIL ME GONG YOO!!!
Gifs Credit | Rating : Sexiness = _(꒪ཀ꒪」∠)_, Dirty thoughts = ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡° ), Satisfaction = ∞ w/ too much salt
What more can I say about how much I am absolutely obsessed with this long over-due sexy make out between these two? Just look at how Shin launched at her… but at the same time Shin is such a gentleman as he stopped to make sure she was okay with it.. OF COURSE she would reply back enthusiastically! BUT I DIED WHEN SHE JUMPED AND WRAPPED HER LEGS AROUND HIM! OMG! AND FOR THE LOVE OF ALL MAKE OUTS, when Shin started planting kisses on her face and she was smiling from enjoying his touch… that was the sexiest thing I’ve ever seen!!! BUT DAMNIT! WHO THE FUCK CUTS IN THE MIDDLE OF GONG YOO AND KIM GO EUN’S KISSES??? WHY WOULD YOU DEPRIVE US OF THESE TWO WONDERFULLY AMAZING KISSERS??? WHY COULDN’T YOU SHOW US THE WHOLE DAMN THING??? (╯°益°)╯彡┻━┻
Seriously, the only issue I have with this kiss is that they abruptly cut the kiss at the GOOD part. They could have gradually transitioned out of the scene instead of just cutting in the middle of the kiss; they had plenty of time to add 30 more seconds – oh for goodness sakes, I would’ve been glad to see another hour. PLUS, WHY WOULD YOU NOT SHOW SOMETHING YOU TEASED US IN THE FUCKIN PREVIEW??? Two lovers who defiedtime, God, death, and were finally together would NOT just simply call it a night after sharing a passionate kiss on the couch AFTER staying together overnight in fuckin luxurious hotel (with probably a huge ass bed)… just saying. ┻━┻ ︵ヽ(`Д´)ﾉ︵ ┻━┻
And that’s all folks… I can’t really say that I’m completely satisfied since I love Shintak so much… It makes me sad that Gong Yoo and Kim Go Eun will probably never costar together again since it’s rare for people to costar together a second time. WHAT A SHAME! YOU HAVE TWO AMAZING KISSERS COSTAR TOGETHER AND THAT’S IT? Like I would have been okay if they didn’t show any skin… just some more steamy moments between the two because their love is so fuckin tragic that they deserve some more lovey dovey couple scenes. Ugh… just because I’m a salty grandma, friggin 15 age rating ruined it! At least the kisses got better and better and we got a few Gong Yoo certified kisses in Goblin. T.T
“The kiss itself is immortal. It travels from lip to lip, century to century, from age to age. Men and women garner these kisses, offer them to others and then die in turn.” ~ Guy de Maupassant, The Complete Short Stories of Guy de Maupassant, Part One
I’ll start with my personal favourite that is literally the longest and the slowest of slow burns:
Redemption Road: 600k+ words, Canon!verse - Takes place right at the end of Season 6 when Cas becomes god and the author works from there making her own ending and story. This is such an incredible read and the author writes the whole thing like it’s a series of supernatural. Each chapter is basically you watching an episode of Supernatural. I’m not exaggerating when I say how so freaking in character everyone is. So damn in character. I’ve never read anything like it. And it’s beautiful. And so long. So very very long but satisfying. It’s a very slow-build for Dean and Cas in this. And while it is destiel, it’s not just about Dean and Cas. It’s about all of them. Sam, Cas, Bobby and Dean. It’s pretty much like watching supernatural with the bonus that Destiel becomes canon. Cannot emphasise how well-written it is. (Also if you’re interested, I have it on my Kindle as one giant mobi file, rather than downloading 42 chapters separately. So if you want the mobi file, just msg me with your e-mail address and i’ll send it to you :D)
Clipped and Unbound: 50k+ words, Angels as Slaves,
Castiel is a slave widely regarded as unbreakable and unruly. Dean Winchester is a billionaire ending a five year long search to rescue him. They’ll both learn that peace can be the hardest thing in the world to find.
(I have a huge thing for fics where Dean rescues Cas from horrible situations and this story really gives that and it’s such a wonderful slow-burn as you read through Cas’s recovery and Dean being so patient. I adore this fic.)
Innocent Looks 100k+ words, Cas is a beleaguered public defender who gets the Winchesters as his next case and for the first time ever believes his clients are truly innocent. How could they not be? Dean, the older one So earnest and honest, so utterly protective of his younger brother, and Sam, so knowledgeable about the law and how it works, he helps Cas build their case. They win, of course, and Dean insists they all go out and celebrate.

Sleeper, Awake!: 300k+ words, Medieval AU - When their Father cast them from Heaven, his Angels lost themselves in their grief. In 1424, they haunted the skies of citadels, as winged mercenaries turned animal, seeking bloodshed for a slight they no longer remembered. From Ardus, the central city of the kingdom, groups of soldiers took to the Roads to provide crucial supplies and transport amongst citadels. When Castiel, the last remaining Angel equipped with any sense of humanity, happened upon an attack to a Slayer’s party on the Road, he rescued the only survivor - Dean Winchester - and spared him from certain death. Under starry skies and the shadowy treetops of Ardus’ forest, the pair breached the boundaries of their relative humanity and divinity, discerning first friendship and then more, until, driven by love, Castiel was imprisoned by the Empress Lilith for the crime of animalism.

He is much more suited to being a part of the army, or at the very least someone who helps to train the knights. That would be far more preferred than having to watch over the King. It means Castiel would get to keep fighting – and that’s the only way he knows to give meaning to his life.

(Or, in which Castiel gets stuck in Dean’s timeline preseries and Dean kind of hates it—until he doesn’t.)
This is a serious must read. It’s absolutely beautiful.
