apologizing for posting it twice

Thanks to @pangur-and-grim for this amazing Horrible DrawingTM of my beloved goldfish, Flash. You really captured his essence! Also, glad I left it in the plastic because he wasted no time in making an extremely aggressive splash and getting water all over it 😂 

A dream that you wish will come true ?


idk, i think it wasn’t obvious what i wanted to convey with the first one… so i made a .. ?? thing.


Samael: Evil Angel

Samael has an interesting reputation, to say the least. Although he associates and is associated with demons, unlike most of the otherworldlies I’ve covered, Samael is not technically a demon. Most texts refer to him either a fallen angel or a malevolent heavenly resident, but one that is still very much in service of God. Samael is said to perform the same acts as other angels, such as protection, although some of the people he has protected are considered to be wicked. According to the Grimoire of Armadel, his powers toe the line of good and evil, and he is capable of aligning one with either Heaven or Hell. Samael is also said to be able to teach magic, necromancy, the occult sciences, and for some reason, law.

Dean loves Cas

I just saw this post by @doomsdayy where Dean apologized to Cas twice (9x06 and 9x10). The whole thing inspired me to write this post about the first half of season 9 and why I’m sure Cas was set as Dean’s love interest at the time.

In 9x03, we could actually see the pain in Dean’s face when he told Cas that he couldn’t stay.

In 9x04, Dean told Sam that nobody wanted Cas in the Bunker more than he did.

In 9x06, Dean took the first excuse to go find Cas.

He apologized to him even though he still couldn’t tell him the truth and take him home with him. 

In 9x07, we saw teen!Dean choosing Sam and his well-being over Robin, Dean’s love interest, exactly one episode after we saw Dean choosing (for the second time) Sam and his well-being over Cas, his… friend

In 9x08, Dean said sometimes sex just makes you feel sad because in the morning it’s “always the adios” a couple of episodes after the fanfiction gap in 9x06 where he had to say goodbye to Cas for a second time.  

In 9x09, Dean told Cas that he had to do anything for Sam (his well-being again?) even if that meant keeping his distance from Cas (choosing Sam over Cas for a third time? Isn’t three times a pattern? Just saying!). However, Dean made sure to tell Cas he didn’t feel good about it; he just didn’t have a choice. 

In 9x10, Dean could finally come clean to Cas and apologize again, this time in a more meaningful way because there were no more lies. 

So… tell me again why season 9 ruined Destiel, according to some people. The whole Dean/Cas dynamic prior to the Mark of Cain was everything you do for star-crossed lovers. People talk about Cas loving Dean and his feeling being totally unrequited, but these people forget that in season 8 and half of season 9 we could say the same thing about Dean having unrequited feelings for Cas. As I explained here, I think that “the Carver era has put both Dean and Cas at the far ends of a story of unrequited love” at one point or the other. The joke is on us because we, as the audience, know that their love is NOT one-sided. But they, Dean and Cas, don’t know it yet. 

Next time somebody tells me there’s no proof of Dean’s feelings, I’ll show them this and remind them that Dean was literally told that what he felt was unrequited. 

“I admire your loyalty. I only wish he felt the same way.” (Naomi to Dean in 8x19).
