anonymous asked:

it says phil sgriccia is directing and dabb is writing 13x01. do you think we are in good hands for grieving dean? it seems like sgriccia has directed some good dean/cas stuff. mommy dearest, meet the new boss, the aaron scene, fan fiction, executioners song/ boyfriend deleted scene, hell's angel, the awkward "you're our brother" in 11x23, maybe a few i missed.. i just really need them to get it right lol.

same anon about directors. john badham is directing 13x04. he directed some such as into the mystic, the vessel, and regarding dean. that makes me feel good about the new version of cas, since he had to direct a “new” version of dean. fun fact he also directed saturday night fever lol.

Tbh I feel like we are in such good hands overall!
My tentative speculation is:

1. Lost & Found Writer: Andrew Dabb Director: Phil Sgriccia
- Brilliant for starting the season, setting the themes etc.

2. The Rising Sun Writer: Brad Buckner and Eugenie Ross-Leming Director: Thomas Wright
- Brilliant for repressed / regressed facade Dean, hopefully sleeping with (multiple) waitresses and drinking etc and clearly showing it as a coping mechanism. Standard BL fare but for a blatant subversion REASON now.

3. Patience Writer: Robert Berens Director: Robert Singer
- Berens writes GREAT character exposition and in depth analysis, this coupled with psychics gets me SO excited for this episode I can’t even. I am overwhelmed with 13x03 speculation and excitement!!!

4. The Big Empty Writer: Meredith Glynn Director: John Badham
- Glynn showed her capability with 12x11 and I keep saying Cas’ arc will mirror and expand on Dean in 12x11, imo the memory and who we are foreshadowing from s12 will be all over Cas’ arc in s13 so let’s see :)

5. AdvancedThanatology Writer: Steve Yockey Director: TBA
- I sincerely HOPE tho I don’t expect but I HOPE that this is our bi!dean exposition exposed… the one before Cas comes back so it’s separate… Yockey being queer himself gives me hope and I feel who better o write it and why else is he onboard at this point…

6. Tombstone Writer: Davy Perez Director: TBA
- Not sure but I’m sure will be great. Perez has shown he knows the characters well. I would be more excited for Berens to handle Cas’ return but let’s see :)

7. War of the Worlds Writer: Brad Buckner and Eugenie Rossyh Director: TBA.
- Ehhh I just hope this is a boring mytharc / lucifer episode. Keep them away from the boys character growth.

8. The Scorpion and The Frog Writer: Andrew Dabb Director: TBA.
- Should be amazing and probably some kind of Jack going bad lead up or happening.

9. The Bad Place Writer: Robert Berens Director: TBA.
- Berens? Exposition behind the reasons for Jack going bad ans blood / found family themes etc

10. Wayward Sisters. Writer: Robert Berens and Andrew Dabb
- Super excited for this :) :) :)

Tristan Imagine: Hanging out with Millie

REQUEST: Heya hunnie your imagines are so good so I wondering whether I could a Tristan one. Something cute and cuddly. Haven’t been very well recently so it would make feel a bit better thank you x

It was a cold Sunday morning as I awoke to my dog bounding into my bedroom, hinting to me that he needed to go outside for a wee. 
“Good Morning mate” I said, ruffling his head and walking downstairs, letting him outside to do his business. I made myself a cup of coffee, let him back inside and then made my way upstairs to get ready.I then went to the fridge, opening it to try and find the strawberries in order to make myself a smoothie only to find that we didn’t have any.
“Jess! When we run out of strawberries please let me know!” I shouted upstairs to my room mate who replied with a grumble; clearly hungover from the night before. 

Putting on my coat, I opened the front door and made my way to the shop. The wind was bitterly cold, I kept having to fix my hat because it was constantly being blown off. Walking into the shop, I was greeted by Mrs Jenkins, the old lady who owned our local store.
“And where’s your young man today?” she enquired as I handed her the money to pay for the oddly shaped fruit.
“Oh, he’s at home I think, I might call and see how he is” I smiled, taking my change and bidding her goodbye. On my journey home, I walked past Tristan’s house and decided it would be a good idea to call, just to surprise him and pay him a cute little visit. He normally had the day off, maybe we could do something together. I shuffled up to his door and knocked a little hard, just so he’d hear. He did have a doorbell but it never worked. Hearing footsteps coming closer, I smiled and fixed myself so I at least looked somewhat attractive.
“Hey!” I smiled as the door opened, but it didn’t reveal Tristan, instead it revealed his little Sister Millie. Tristan’s parents were away at the moment, his Brother had moved out which meant that he was left to look after Millie until his parents returned home.
“Hey (Y/N), were you looking for Tris?”
“I was yeah, is he in?”
“No, he’s gone to Brad’s. Do you want to come in? He said he wouldn’t be long, you could wait here with me until he comes home”
I smiled, I didn’t really have anything better to do and it’d be fun to finally spend some time with his little sister. I’d spoken to her before but I’d never actually had a proper conversation. It’d be nice to bond with her, especially because she meant so much to Tristan. I nodded and walked into Tristan’s family home. 

There was a little bit of an awkward silence at first, none of us really knew what to do. 
“So, I’m thinking we should do some baking!” You smiled
“Oooooooh! Yes can we?!”
“Well lets go into the kitchen, see what food Tris has got in and we’ll make a cake or something? Sound like a plan?”
Eagerly she nodded and we went into the kitchen, getting out the resources we’d need to make the cake. Millie put the radio on, turning it up as we danced and sang at the top of our voices to ‘Uptown Funk’.
“DON’T BELIEVE ME JUST WATCH” We both screamed as we started doing the iconic dance from the music video. Millie took a lot of videos of us both, and photos, uploading them to Instagram and Twitter for everyone to see how crazy we were being. Eventually, the cake mix was finished so we poured it into a tin and put it into the oven to bake for 30 minutes. It was then washing up time, Millie was on cleaning duties whilst I dried the things that she’d washed. We were still singing along to the radio and dancing, when all of a sudden she threw a bowl into the water, sending it splashing all over me. My hair and my outfit was soaked.
“MILLIE!” I exclaimed, sending us both into fits of laughter, Millie crumpled up on the floor clutching her tummy because she found it too funny. I cupped my hand in the bowl of water, lifting it up quickly and sending water all over Millie. 
“(Y/N)!” She exclaimed in shock, as I burst into giggles.
This was then the start of an epic water fight between the two of us. The dishes got done in the end, but we were absolutely soaked. Looking at timer, the cake had 10 minutes left in the oven.
“I think we need to go get changed a bit, don’t you?” I muttered
“We probably should, you can borrow one of Tris’ t-shirts, he won’t mind”
Running upstairs, now singing to 'Steal My Girl’ we quickly got changed. I went into Tristan’s room, which he wouldn’t mind, it wasn’t like I hadn’t been here before, removing my jumper and putting one one of his old band t-shirts as well as his grey hoodie. It was more like a dress on me but it was cosy, which was all that mattered. I put my hair up in a messy bun, hoping it would help it to dry quicker. Suddenly the timer sounded and Millie & I ran downstairs, straight to the oven. With the oven glove on my hand, I carefully opened the door to reveal a golden brown lemon drizzle cake! 
“That smells soooooooo good” Millie whispered
“Think we did a good job there Mills!” I smiled, putting the cake on the baking tray to cool and then giving her a high five and pulling her in for a hug. 

We then went to sit in the living room, the radio still playing. 
“Yes hun?”
“My hair is still a little bit wet, you couldn’t dry it for me could you?" 
"Of course!" 
Running upstairs, Millie went to get the hairdryer as I sat and waited. She soon returned and she sat in front of me on the sofa as I knelt behind her, drying her gorgeous long blonde hair. Brushing through it and styling it into her normal style, it looked lovely. She just looked like the female version of Tristan. Thanking me, we turned the radio off and put the television on, her putting her favourite film 'Frozen’ into the DVD player. We snuggled up on the sofa with blankets and hot chocolate as we watched the movie, singing along and often doing the famous duets. 

The sound of keys in the door was heard and a voice echoed through the house "Hey Millie!”. Tristan was home. We both looked at one another with a cheeky grin on our faces. I removed myself from the blankets and went to hide myself behind the living room door as Millie tried to look as innocent as possible.
“Hey Mills, what you doing?”
“Watching Frozen! Did you have a good time at Brads?”
“Not bad, not bad”
Slowly, as they continued the conversation, I snuck out from behind the door, quietly creeping up on Tristan.
“BOO!” I shouted as I squeezed his sides together, him jumping up in terror and screaming like you would when a jumpy part happens in a horror movie and you aren’t really expecting it, Millie almost fell off her chair in fits of laughter whilst Tristan tried to recover from his little fright. 
“I fucking hate you!” He muttered, laughing a little and coming over to me, tickling my sides so I fell to the floor, begging him to stop.
“Say you love me”
“I love you now get off me you muppet”
“Love you too” He smiled, kissing my forehead and getting to his feet.
“So what have you girls been doing today then?”
“Well (Y/N) came round looking for you, but then you weren’t here so we made a cake and…”
“And (Y/N) is that my hoodie?" 
"Yeah, we um…we kinda had a little bit of a water fight” You mumbled, receiving a little smirk from Millie.

For the rest of the night, we snuggled up on the sofa watching another one of Millie’s favourite films and eating the cake that we’d made previously. I was cuddled into Tristan with a blanket over the two of us and Millie was cuddled up on the armchair with a blanket slung over her. “I like it when you wear my clothes, you look cute” Tris whispered in my ear
“I was worried you’d have gone mad”
“Nooo, I find it really attractive” He smiled, kissing my forehead and squeezing me tightly. The film continued until we heard light snores coming from the arm chair. Looking over, we saw Millie sleeping. 
“I’ll take her up” Tris muttered, quietly sneaking over and carrying her in his arms up to her room. He soon returned and made his way back under the blanket so we could both get back into a comfortable position. 
“She really likes you (Y/N)”
“Does she?”
“Oh my god yeah, she wont shut up about this day for like the next few weeks now”
“Well she’s a little cutie, I’ve enjoyed today too!”
I glanced over at the clock, 10:00pm. I only meant to go out for strawberries. 
“Tris, I should probably get home” I mumbled, moving from his grip.
“Oh no you don’t” He replied, pulling be back down so I ended up in his lap. “It’s late, you should stay here for the night”
“But Tris…”
“Please stay?”
He did have a point, it was getting dark, and it’s not like Jess would miss me anyway. I agreed and snuggled back into him as we began to watch the new series of Prison Break. 

anonymous asked:

I've been looking into Glee wank and I can't find anything good other than the kurt/bully dude. You always build the fandom up as this wank gold but I can't find anything recorded :(

I don’t know that much HAS been recorded dear anon, glee has always been such a strange fandom.  Back in tumblr'day when tumblr used to make posts about ~the fandoms of tumblr~ glee being left out (even though it had a HUGE presence on tumblr) became something of a running joke but trust glee’s always been a huge wanky playground

Lets see if I can’t conjure up some memories of epic hilarious glee wank

Some history: glee wasn’t a super wanky fandom for the first season while people complained about the quality difference between the F13 (front 13 eps) and B9 (back 9 eps) things were pretty quiet things really started heating up during the summer hiatus before s2 aired but they were brimming to explode before then.  I just wished I had links (I looked but none of the old posts are up still) cause this shit was epic

  • Okay so here’s where it gets good anon see after s1 Kurt Hummel kinda just BLEW THE FUCK UP as a character seriously he became SUPER CRAZY POPULAR as did Chris Colfer it formed like, his own little cult of super fans who were called Kurtsies and just fucking worshiped the ground he walked on
  • So when spoilers hit that Kurt was getting a boyfriend the summer of S2 SHIT JUST HIT THE FAN and of course this was back in the day when everyone took spoilers as fact so when the spoiler came out that Kurt’s boyfriend was Sam people already started shipping them
  • Then Duets happened everyone was already kinda pissed at the show because of Rachel’s character reset in the first ep of s2 and the stupid/pointless Britney/Brittney ep but Duets just sent the fandom overboard
  • Suddenly Brittana was likely! And the Hevans/Kum ship was sailing Brittana had always been moderately popular back in s1 and there was already some ill will towards Ryan Murphy because of his comment about the couple and how they wouldn’t happen because glee was “a family show” (legit quote LOL)
  • So after Duets everyone assumed three things would occur after the hiatus that happened after Rocky Horror Glee Show (which was stupid filler lets not pretend otherwise and also the ep that started to sour fandom on Will and Wemma) 1. that Sam and Kurt were TOTALLY gonna get together 2. Brittana were so totally on and 3. Tartie (tina/artie) was also gonna happen cause Mike was a NPC (non-player character)
  • This led to a fuckton of ~theories~ surrounding Sam’s sexuality with people saying that glee was just full of METAPHORS and creating elaborate fic inspired storylines about Sam coming out and how important it would be for him to come out cause he wasn’t a stereotype~ and one of the theories was that Sam was denying his gayness because it would make him a target as emphasized by the shirt he wore with a target sign on it
  • No I’m not even playing legit target shirt 
  • Then Never Been Kissed aired and it was like fandom collectively lost it’s shit all the theories had been blow out of the damn water 
  • Artie hooking legit up with Brit!? Sam being actually into Quinn!? Karofsky’s gay and could be a love interest!? Blair is actually Blaine and could be a love interest!? Tartie isn’t on!? SEXISM!???
  • Oh boy that was fun - see everyone speculated when spoilers for “Blair” who later became “Blaine” came out that he would be a guest starring mentor character nothing more and that “Kum” was still totally on and lol sucks for you Quinn be Kurt’s matchmaker!! but then NBK happened and suddenly all the Kurtsies were divided between the three ships

A possible reason why Eugenie Ross Leming and Brad Buckner suck so much

Alright, so this is pure speculation on my part. I don’t know either of these people at all on any level. Never met them, never sent a letter, never saw either of them stand up in front of a crowd to talk about writing. I think a possible reason Eugenie Ross-Leming and Brad Buckner’s episodes are only ever saved by the acting and directing is because they don’t truly respect what they’re writing. I think that they buy into the idea of the sci-fi ghetto. It’s basically the idea that genre fiction like fantasy and science fiction can not be taken seriously in terms of critical acclaim and being worth intellectual analysis because it’s not “proper literature” in comparison to more “realistic” stories that don’t include time travel, space ships, magic, supernatural creatures, or alternative universes with extensive world building.

I think they think to themselves, we can have Cas have sex under extremely questionable circumstances because it’s not like anyone really thinks deeply or critically about this show. It’s just Supernatural! People just watch it for the pretty boys, music, the car, and cool fight scenes. No one actually cares on an intellectual level about any of this. And if anyone calls it sexual assault or rape, we can just say “hey, it’s a fantasy show and not really connected to the ‘real world.’ So pfft, whatever.” Again, this is a total guess on my part but it could account for how they seem to never understand just how offensive some of the things they put onto paper are in terms of both race and gender.

This is why I defend Adam Glass’s presence on the writing staff despite his bad twitter personality. I look at his episodes like Mother’s Little Helper and Bad Boys and I know this is a person who cares about the work he’s doing. This is some one who wants to elevate the opinions of people who might just dismiss his work off hand because of the ghetto. He wants to make something smart and funny and interesting. He respects the show. I don’t think Eugenie Ross-Leming and Brad Buckner do.
Trump’s Son Met With Russian Lawyer After Being Promised Damaging Information on Clinton

Here is Richard Painter’s Tweet reacting to this article…

If you aren’t aware, Richard Painter was the Ethics Counsel for Dubya….

So, the word ‘treason’ isn’t one Painter would use cavalierly, and Malcolm Nance knows that and is sufficiently alarmed.

Even the Washington Post, a pretty conservative paper, is all over the New York Times piece….

Link to Washington Post story:

More from NBC Senior News Editor and writer, Brad Jaffy:

(Our President is showing just how clueless he truly is, ‘Time to Move Forward’ my ass.)

Reminder, everyone has lied about this, even Pence:

Are the Glee writers mad that Chris has become happy and successful? Do they want him to stay beaten down, so they can brag about saving him with their Important Show? And when he won’t, did they try to put him back in his place with the Santana rant? No wonder they glorify an abusive relationship like Klaine.


I understand that Santana was angry and honestly, she had every right to be. But insulting Kurt that way? That was way out of line and offensive as hell, which was actually Brad Falchuk’s pure hate towards Chris Colfer. What’s wrong, Mr.Falchuk? Are you that desparate that you make fun of the things they can’t change?


Santana had every right to be upset with Kurt for spoiling one of the happiest moments of her life but come on. Insulting his appearance? Insulting the things he likes? Blaming the whole break up on him without even knowing the whole story? That was way more than a regular Santana-rant. That was Brad Falchuk acting like a whiney child. Butthurt much Mr. Falchuk?

SPN Writers

I was summoned to a convo in this post by @dean-o-topia​.

Over there, we could see poor Jeremy Carver answering the question about Charlie’s death in ComicCon as well as Robert Singer answering a similar question in JIBCon. I agree with what some people already said there. It seemed to me that Carver was just repeating the explanation he was given for Charlie’s death, but he didn’t believe it himself. The cast abandoned him, but their reaction showed a “haha, now you handle this one alone because that’s your job whether entirely your fault or not” kind of thing. On the other hand, when Singer was asked the same question, he had no trouble answering. He showed he really believed what he was saying. Misha’s reaction to what Singer said showed utter dislike as if he knew Charlie’s death was Singer’s fault.  

In the case of the other writers, we know Robbie Thompson tried to pitch other ideas in favor of keeping Charlie alive, but nobody listened to him. However, I don’t think this topic is so relevant now since Robert Singer is NOT an Executive Producer anymore. (Read this for more info). 

I was asked by Dean-o-topia about the state of the writers’ room right now. That’s why I decided to write this post.

Who are the writers we have for season 11 of Supernatural? 

Jeremy Carver: He’s been writing for the show since season 3. He left to work on his own projects after season 5 and returned to take Sera Gamble’s place as showrunner for season 8. 

Andrew Dabb: He began writing for the show in season 4 along with Daniel Loflin. Dabb’s first episode on his own was 8x08: Hunteri Heroici. Since then, he proved that, by himself, he was an excellent writer. 

Brad Buckner & Eugenie Ross-Leming: They were responsible for the awful episode 1x13: Route 666 in season 1 and didn’t write for the show again until season 7. They’ve been writing together for 5 seasons now, and I still don’t know how come some of their episodes got approved. Maybe the fact that Eugenie is Robert Singer’s wife and he was an Executive Producer since day one had something to do with that. 

Robbie Thompson: He’s been writing for the show since season 7 and has given us many of the best episodes of Supernatural. God bless his soul! He’s currently the best writer the show has, IMHO. 

Robert Berens: He began writing for the show in season 9. His very first episode was 9x06: Heaven Can’t Wait. He’s become one of the best writers the show has, too. 

Eric Charmelo & Nicole Snyder: They began writing for the show in season 6 but didn’t write any episode in seasons 7 and 8. They started writing for the show again in season 9, and since then, they have given us some “meh” filler episodes.  

Jenny Klein: She started co-writing for the show since season 5 (one episode per season, never on her own). Her first episode by herself was 8x10: Torn and Frayed. She was finally given two episodes to write in seasons 9 and 10. Most of her episodes have been “meh”. In fact, I still can’t get over 9x08: Rock and a Hard Place

Nancy Won: She’s the new addition for season 11 (let’s remember that Adam Glass left). Her very first episode will be 11x05: Thin Lizzie. She worked with Jeremy Carver in Being Human and with Robbie Thompson in Jericho, so hopefully, she’ll be a good writer. 

Every time I talk about the Supernatural writers, I say my favorites are Robbie Thompson, Andrew Dabb, and Robert Berens. Currently, they are the ones given more episodes to write, along with the dreadful duo Brad Buckner & Eugenie Ross-Leming. In fact, when I write meta, it’s very easy for me to identify the continuity of themes in their episodes. I can notice when Robbie, for example, picks up something he left off in a previous episode from the same season or even from previous seasons. He does it with his own episodes, but he also does it with episodes written by Dabb and Berens. And Dabb and Berens do the same, too. I can talk about their episodes as if they were written by the same person because it’s very obvious the narrative has been discussed. They know where they’re going, what they’re doing, and why they’re doing whatever they’re doing.

Have you ever felt there’s a continuity error? Have you ever felt somebody is doing or saying something totally out of character and/or completely stupid? Have you felt that an episode negates the existence of what happened in the previous one, as if the characters have suddenly forgotten everything? That’s what generally happens when we have episodes written by Eric Charmelo & Nicole Snyder or Jenny Klein. Actually, even episodes written by Buckner and Ross-Leming feel this way although they’re always related to the myth arc. Robbie’s filler episodes can have a lot more depth! I’m not saying that Robbie, Dabb, and Berens are perfect all the time, but in terms of writing, their episodes have better quality.

Jeremy Carver just writes the season premiere and the season finale, but he’s the showrunner, so he’s the head in the writers’ room. It’s his job to make sure what he wants is what the audience sees. Of course, the other writers can help him get there by providing creative ideas and interesting sub-plots. Some people say TPTB don’t know what they’re doing, but I think these people are mistaken ‘cause I’ve been reading the text and subtext thoroughly during the Carver era, and I think there is a big picture. What changes is how we’re getting there. They take different routes every time something happens, every time they get one more season, for example.

When Robert Singer was an Executive Producer, I bet things were a little more complicated. The audience saw not only what Carver had in mind, but also what Singer wanted. Because of the previous seasons, I can perfectly see Robbie, Dabb, and Berens playing for the same team along with Carver. And who was obviously going to support what Singer said? His wife! Duh! As well as Jenny Klein. If you pay attention to previous seasons, you will notice that out of the few episodes Klein has written for the show, Robert Singer has directed many of them (and even helped her write one in season 7). That’s why I don’t doubt he could get her support in the writers’ room. The fact Singer stepped down is positive in terms of unity. He’s still there as a director and as an Executive Consultant, but his powers are not the same. Since Supernatural started, this is the first season when Singer’s influence is not going to be so big. His wife is still there, true! Jenny Klein is still there, also true! But Carver is the sole showrunner now, and if he needs help, he has Phil Sgriccia (who’s been there since season 1, too). Sgriccia is not a writer, he’s a director and an Executive Producer along with Jeremy. However, the little I know about him tells me he and Jeremy work together pretty well and have a similar vision.

Oops! This got longer than I intended. I just want to finish by saying that I don’t have any special information regarding what happens in the writers’ room. What I have said here is pure speculation. I might be 100% wrong, so don’t take this as word of god.

So Brad Falchuck wrote that rant that
  • made fun of Chris’ teeth (which he’s insecure enough about he says he won’t smile because he looks bad when he does, i can’t find the gif)
  • called Kurt a more feminine Quinn, insulting both Chris and Dianna in one blow
  • made fun of the episode Chris wrote/Chris’ interests (when that show got some of the best critical praise of the whole damn fifth season)
  • made fun of Chris’ twirling abilities despite using them as much as possible in the earlier seasons

and people liked it and supported it. 

That wasn’t Santana yelling at Kurt. That was Brad Falchuck and the writers hating on everything Chris Colfer has done on Glee.

And that is not fucking acceptable.
