First off, I wanna say sorry for spamming you with likes/reblogs all the time, I just really agree with 99% of the stuff you say... Now back to my ask... This might seem a lil random, but I've started rewatching SPN from the first season (when I rewatched b4, I skipped till s4) and I just seen s1ep13 "Route 666" and noticed a crap ton of Destiel parallels to Dean and Cassie (IMO I guess cause Im not very good at meta) but I was wondering if you could look into it and tell me your thoughts on it?

Hi!

Man, I LOVE the parallels between Cassie and Cas… it’s like they were setting Cassie up as the ‘almost’ love interest for a future love interest to be compared to…and showing the ‘tells’ that Dean cares about someone and how Sam reacts to them… ahem, I think that’s exactly what they were doing…

source: @marilynmay. Seriously. Cas is like Cassie “I’m you but stronger”…

I wrote a post not that long ago where I said: 

By season 12 Cas is Cassie, they argue cos they care, Dean is pissed he’s always leaving and Cas thinking he’s doing the the right thing for Dean.

The Cassie/Dean argument - sex scene: 

Angrily in each other’s faces

Cassie: I thought it was what you wanted.

Dean: Well it wasn’t.

Cassie: I didn’t mean to hurt you.

Dean: Well you did.

Cassie: I’m sorry!

Dean: Yeah me too.

They stare at each other, then start making out furiously. Camera switches to them falling into bed, making love…

THIS WAS LITERALLY 12x19 BUT RATHER THAN SCREW IT OUT THEY ACTUALLY TALKED AND COMMUNICATED AND I JUST AAAAAAAAAAAAAH!

top 5 Drusilla quotes?

In no particular order…

  1. “You miss him like a heartbeat.” (Reprise) I love how this quote implies that Dru misses being human. It was a subtle touch, and offers an seldom seen insight into how she sees that world.
  2. “We can love quite well…If not wisely.” (Crush) As a Shakespeare nerd, this reference to Othello was most welcome, not to mention how befitting it was to have Dru deliver the reference, as explored here.
  3. “Do you love my insides? The parts you can’t see?” (Halloween) Drusilla is a character who’s been largely treated as a commodity by her sires, so it’s beautiful to see that at least someone loved her eyeballs to entrails, which is elaborated on here.
  4. “I want to be good. I want to be pure.” (Becoming Part 1) This one is just achingly sad. No further commentary needed.
  5. “Everything I put in the ground withers and dies.” (School Hard) Prophetic from her very first scene, Drusilla foreshadows the fate of other characters years down the line with this quote. While on a surface level she’s referring to her subpar gardening skills, ‘everything I put in the ground’ could also refer to her childe’s Spike and Darla, whom she buries in the ground after siring, only to watch them slip away from her and die later. In many ways, her childe’s die two deaths; they both become ‘contaminated’ with a soul (a death in itself, Dru would argue), and then they die on a more literal level, crumbling to dust. In that sense, this quote underscores just how insightful Drusilla is, and neatly summarizes the central theme of her character…Loss. Loss of loved ones, loss of innocence, loss of sanity, even loss of heartbeat, breath, and reflection. Even if you look at the quote on a more literal level, from the angle of her failure to garden daisies, then it still betrays the tragedy of her character. As a vampire, Drusilla’s garden can’t be anywhere near sunlight, something daisies need to grow and survive. This underscores how her trying to nurture anything is a fruitless pursuit, something she is doomed to fail at despite her best efforts. Perhaps this parallels Dru’s attempts at trying to live a virtuous life as a human, the fatalistic nature of her backstory where she was always going to fall, always going to fail.

Honourable mention: “I’m going to be a mummy”, which is explored in further detail here.

Here it is, my first ever follow forever! Bet you didn’t see that one coming. 

Anyway, I’m sure I forgot someone, so if you’re not on this list but I’m following you right now, there is still a 99% chance that I will follow you forever. It’s just that I follow a lot of people, and that plenty of you have recently changed URLs for the holidays or otherwise. Still, I love you all, thank you for being awesome, and I wish you all the best for 2016!

MTVS Epic Rewatch #93

BTVS 4x09 Something Blue

This is why I like this season, because in spite of its mayor season arc flaws, it gave us episodes like this. And we should all be grateful for the fact that Something Blue is something that exists in this world.

Suggested soundtrack to listen to while you read this recap (inspired by this episode):

At the Bronze

Non wedding

Stray thoughts

1) Break my heart why don’t you.

2) This was clearly foreshadowing, right? I mean, a huge “LESBIAN” sign in a Willow-centric episode? How did we not see it coming?

3)

I never know how you’re going to react to something. That’s why I like you so much. You’re a mystery. Probably every beautiful girl in the world has some jerk telling her she’s a mystery, but.. I swear. You really are. There’s a lot about you that needs puzzling out.

It’s a pity that once he puzzled her out, he couldn’t really handle the mystery and he ended up resenting the very thing that made him fall in love with her.

4)

It’s just, different, you know? A picnic. First of all, daylight — kind of a new venue, Buffywise. And the best part — he said he would bring all the food, so all I have to do was to show up and eat. Those are two things I’m really good at.

And this is why, in spite of how things ended, Riley was exactly what Buffy needed at this point in life.

5) “Seeing Angel in LA.. even for five minutes.. hello to the pain.” If you’ve seen I Will Remember You, you’ll understand how heartbreaking this supposedly casual line really is.

6) Oh this was the quote I couldn’t remember while watching Pangs, when Buffy said she likes her men evil.

But I can’t help thinking — isn’t that where the fire comes from? Can a nice, safe relationship be that intense? I know it’s nuts, but.. part of me believes that real love and passion have to go hand in hand with pain and fighting.

Buffy and Veronica need to get together and talk this shit out. (for the VM fans: roller coasters.)

7) I love this moment…

Buffy:  Look at my poor neck… All bare and tender and exposed. All that blood just pumping away..

Giles: Oh, please.

Spike: Giles, make her stop.

Giles: If those two don’t kill eachother, I might lend a hand.

8)

Giles: Willow may have had a very helpful idea. She seems to be coping better with Oz’s departure, don’t you think?

Buffy: She still has a way to go, but yeah, I think she’s dealing.

Spike: What, are you people blind? She’s hangin’ on by a thread. Any ninny can see that.

I’ve always loved how observant and insightful Spike was, he was always dropping these truth bombs when the Scoobies were oblivious to reality.

9)

Spike: “Passions” is on! Timmy’s down the bloody well, and if you make me miss it, I’ll…

Giles: You’ll do what? Lick me to death?

10)

Willow: I interrupted. You’ve got apples. My mist.

Riley: Wait. Sit. There’s plenty to go around.

This is why Riley was pretty likable in season 4. I mean, any other dude on a date would be more than glad to see the third wheel leave, but Riley noticed Willow was not doing great and he invited her to join them (and he didn’t do it to look nice in front of Buffy either, he was the kind of guy who cared about how other people felt.) Oh Riley, I merely liked you on season 4, but I hate that I hate you so much on season 5.

11) It doesn’t get more early 2000s than having Blink 182′s “All the Small Things” playing in the background, right?

12) Does anyone know how many haircuts/hair color changes Emma had during her time in BTVS? It always seemed as though she changed it every other episode, it was so hard to keep up with all of them!

13) We’ve all felt like this at some point or another, right? We can all relate.

Willow: I just can’t stand feeling this way. I want it to be over.

Buffy: It will. I promise. But it’s gonna take time.

Willow: Well, that’s not good enough.

Buffy: I know. It’s just how it is. You have to go through the pain.

Willow: Well, isn’t there someway I can just make it go away? Just ‘cause I say so? Can’t I just make it go ‘poof’?

14)

Okay, two things. A) How did she get that many candles? That’s a lot of money spent on candles for a college student, don’t you think? And more importantly B) It’s very clear in this episode that Willow’s abuse of magic was already starting to become an issue. I mean, I can’t remember the last time she actually used magic to fight the supernatural, she was simply turning to magic more frequently to solve everyday human problems (this is actually very similar to what happens two seasons later in Tabula Rasa, so the magic abuse thing had been a long time coming…) Which begs the question: if she had started to show signs of getting in too deep and becoming reckless and relying too much on magic to deal with normal stuff that did not require any kind of magic whatsoever, how come the Scoobies didn’t take notice or try to deal with it somehow? And I know I mentioned this before, but Giles. I mean, Giles! He should’ve seen the signs, he should’ve been more stern, he should’ve mentor her the same way he did AFTER she went off the deep end. Granted, he did try to warn her in this episode, but it was a feeble and unsuccessful attempt, and that speech should’ve come after the debacle. But he ate his cookies and got his sight back, so it was all good.

I think this is also a writing problem. I read somewhere that Joss had intended to kill off Tara and therefore turn Will into Dark!Willow during season 5 - hence all the setup for that arc in season 4. But he loved Tara’s and Willow’s relationship so much that he decided to put off Willow’s magic arc for the next season. So honestly, we should really count our blessings here. We could’ve had Tara for a way shorter time than what we got. Anyway, the point is, as a result of this writing choice, we get to see the seeds of Willow’s addiction to magic in season 4 but the “pay-off” (if it can be called that way) comes two seasons later, so we actually see Willow slowly losing herself in magic and its power, which in turn makes the Scoobies look like lousy friends who didn’t realize their friend was on a colission course FOR OVER TWO YEARS.

Long rant over. Peace out.

15) “You know.. not too keen about this spell stuff. Tends to be a bit unpredictable.” How come Spike is the wise man in this scenario?

16) Amy…

…the rat.

(she was naked but her hair was totally different and she had a lot of make-up on?)

17) I can’t watch this scene without thinking of this post. Bless you, @marilynmay​!

Buffy: Oh, make a move, please. I’m dying for a good slay.

18) I’ll just leave this here…

Hahahahaha!

19) She was rude, but she wasn’t wrong…

Willow: Yeah, ‘cause most relationships are great and trouble-free. I don’t think so. I think we’re all doomed to badness.

Xander: We’re not doomed.

Willow: Oh, yeah? Let’s look at your bio. Insect Lady, Mummy Girl, Anya.. You’re a demon magnet.

20)

Buffy: I’m not crazy, and I know that you probably don’t approve, and my father’s not that far away, I mean, he could, but this day is about family, my real family, and I would like you to be the one to give me away.

Giles: Oh, Buffy! That’s… that’s so…

      21) Where did she get this, though?

      22)

      Buffy: What’s wrong with Buffy?

      Giles: Huh.. such a good question.

      23)

      Spike: Well, it’s a terrible name.

      Buffy: My mother gave me that name.

      Spike: Your mother, yeah, she’s a genius.

      Oh this is so unlike Spike! He totally adored Joyce!

      24) Please stop whatever you’re doing. You smell like fruit roll-ups.

      25) And look who’s back!

      Also, remember the amulet, it’s going to come in handy later on.

      26)

      Spike: They’re strong, and I can’t fight. If they get in, I don’t know if I can protect you.

      Buffy: You think you have to protect me?

      Spike: Oh, not with the Girl-Power bit!

      I’m glad they mentioned Spike’s inability to fight, because before rewatching this episode I was wondering how they were going to handle Spike surrounded by demons and not throwing a punch to protect Buffy (it would’ve given away the fact that he actually could fight other demons…)

      27) SPIKE LIPS! LIPS OF SPIKE!

      28)

      Spike: Don’t I get a cookie?

      Buffy: No.

      Spike: Well, I gotta have something. I still have Buffy taste in my mouth.

      Buffy: You’re a pig, Spike.

      Spike: Yeah.. well I’m not the one who wanted, “Wind Beneath My Wings” for the first dance.

      29) Okay, I’ll admit this scene gave me minor tingly feelings.

      Buffy: You really have a lot to learn about women, Riley.

      Riley: You’re gonna teach me.

        30) On a scale from puppies to pizza, how much do you love this episode?
