In your opinion, which 12th house placements and aspects are - the most fortunate - the most challenging - the most intriguing - the most powerful? In what way do they manifest?

Most fortunate
Nothing in the 12th house is particularly fortunate but I think probably the easiest is Neptune. I’ve talked about it before – it’s an expansive soul, the subconscious within itself and not bleeding out or clouding the rest of the mind (unless by aspects), making it very powerful because it’s in its own territory.

Most challenging
Definitely Saturn and Pluto. Saturn indicates a crushing weight upon the native’s psyche, a relentless burden on their soul that is constantly chipping away at the marble of their being and refining them through slow, perpetual agony. Pluto is even worse, indicating that suffering in its rawest form is deeply embedded in the soul, a dark and dangerous force of nature hidden in the unknown core, controlling the native from the background, encouraging life and other people to try to kill their power and make them weak while all they can do is resist and despair. Both of these placements come with monumental wisdom and strength, but they can be rather unbearable.

Most intriguing
To me personally, Venus. I’ve talked about this one before, too: the universalization of love until it completely envelopes their whole world and they become love itself, having so much compassion and affection that they can’t even live with it or contain it. These natives are always extremely sweet but they also feel a lot of pain, and maintain kindness despite it, which I think is honestly incredible. When they let their negative traits take over, they can behave very unfairly, to the point of severely damaging others, but it’s interesting because of the unfairness they have felt. Agape love = gaping wound, I’ve said; born with pain, so they become gardeners of it in others. Their pain isn’t the violent kind like Pluto’s, it’s very soft, the kind that calls for sleep. I’m pretty biased toward this placement, I know I romanticize it, but it’s fundamentally romantic so it’s kind of hard not to, lol.

Most powerful
All of them. Every single planet in the 12th house is incredibly powerful. The 12th house is the seat of power within all of us, we draw all of our meaning from this house, it’s the shadow of the 1st house which is our beginning so in a way, this is the beginning before the beginning, the source of everything that matters, and the other houses simply make it available in regular human life because we can’t spend all of our waking hours meditating or regressing into past lives. Having any planet in the 12th house means there is nothing about it that is allowed to be powerless, it is now forced into power whether the native can handle it or not. The 12th house simultaneously elevates and sinks its inhabitants so there is unbelievable depth and culmination at the same time.

GroundsKeeping - Keeping the Balance

GroundsKeeping Notice:

Our Motto “Keeping the Balance"

Students are reminded that paths constructed of white marble chips are designated “Fae-Ways" and appropriate precautions should be observed when crossing or using these paths. Reddish Paths are designated “Free-Ways”. These are constructed of red scoria, crushed blast furnace slag and a small amount of hematite gravel for balance; these provide a more grounded journey and a safer option. Please do not remove hematite for personal use. Students are reminded that thanks to the generous support of our Alumni, maps and bagged hematite gravel are available Free-Of-Obligation from Student Services. Additionally, the Student Co-op has an extensive selection of hematite, iron or steel jewellery available for purchase at discounted prices.  GroundsKeeping will be conducting their annual rebalancing of the recreation areas around the Dormitories. Grassed areas will be treated with an Iron Sulphate solution and inorganic fertiliser; Meadow areas will be treated with seaweed solution, compost tea and a light dressing of organic fertiliser. Students should note organic fertiliser contains “Chicken Manure”, “Animal by-products” and “Blood & Bone”; consequently a strong odour may persist for a week or so and may attract predators. This is normal and expected, so take care. Students with recent or open wounds, and those actively menstruating are advised to avoid Meadow areas for the next 2 weeks as a precaution. Recent rains have opened numerous new fairy-rings which GroundsKeeping are reviewing for marking or remediation on a case-by-case basis. Please report any new and unmarked rings to GroundsKeepers. Next Wednesday marks the Full-Moon and mid-winter solstice; Students should take particular care near the west-wing of the Library leading up to this event. Students are reminded that the Library will be CLOSED from Dusk on Solstice Wednesday to Dawn on Thursday; All “Category A” books (Red Labels) must be returned by NOON Solstice Wednesday; and can be re-loaned once the Library re-opens Thursday. If you are unable to return Category A books in time they should be secured in an Iron Casket, Filing Cabinet or Safe (or similar). AS A LAST RESORT! Wrap offending items in several layers of Aluminium Foil; place them in your locker; sprinkle the item with salt packets and small iron objects; hematite gravel, iron filings, or even steel wool works well. SECURE THE LOCKER and NOTIFY GROUNDSKEEPING.


Reminder that suspicious items or found objects should be reported to GroundsKeeping for assessment. Avoid touching or staring at them. Collections when combined with Placement are particularly dangerous. For example: Do not step into a Fairy-Ring to admire at the Sea-Shell collection

Re: Tatooine and Stealth Card Shark Luke. Given Luke's family history, he probably either played friendly games or only wagered what he could afford to lose. Yes, Anakin was freed by a winning bet and race. BUT! Anakin and Shmi were both used as wagers by Gardulla... who lost them to Watto. It's not safe for a free-born descendant of slaves to play for anything more than spare parts or chores. Off-world, with the Rebels is very different story, though. Or with Vader safeguarding his freedom.

pomrania said:Someone accuses Luke of using the Force to cheat with cards. Vader starts to loom, then Luke is like “no, I got this”, and he asks Vader to sit facing the opposite direction, and be alert for any use of the Force, and say if so. (Luke doesn’t need the Force to cheat at cards.)

(Sorry for taking so long to answer these, you guys! Sometimes when I’m on mobile I’ll answer the ones on top of the list, but those tend to be the more recent ones and then I forget to do the older ones)

Luke has probably played for things like marbles or dares when he was a kid (that one time Windy had to stand on the roof and pose like a statue at suns-rise was particularly memorable).
On the Executor or on a Rebel base, he’s more likely to….no he still plays for marbles. No one knows where he’s getting them or why he’s keeping them, but he’s up to about twenty-six marbles he keeps in a jar in his X-wing. And this is after losing the old jar when a previous X-wing didn’t quite survive a patented Skywalker Landing.

1. Hold his name in between your teeth but do not bite down. Let it linger on your tongue for a bit, the way it tastes will be bitter at first. When it tries to take your words remember to put his name in between the lines so he can feel your eyes on the page. Do not let him make you feel guilty for speaking out about the pain. Let yourself say his name after you hold it for awhile, let the world know what he did, what you did, what happened. He does not keep you in a prison anymore by holding your tongue hostage in fear of damage. You do not owe him anything anymore, for the moment he left he gave up on the luxury of concealing his identity.

2. Do not mold your figure to fit his new ideals. He has gotten bigger and you will not let yourself take up space in fear that now he will take to your structure voice now sledgehammer. Your bones are not his. Your skin his not his. Your heart is not his. It belongs only to you. He does not have a say in the way you appear to the world. You get to be without him chipping away at the marble on your hip bones. Sour grapes will always dig at appearances before trying to find something below the surface level to use against you.

3. When you find him everywhere it will be hard to take walks alone. You feel his shadow over you now. You will find him in the cracks in the sidewalk. You will want to tell him about every customer you served today who wore blue jeans and you will want to ask him about the numbers in his head. You will think of all the places you didn’t get to let him in and all the places that feel like a scrapbook. You will want him in your bed with sheets and skin. God you will feel this boy and he will be the bandage you refuse to rip off. But you cannot tell how healed you are if you keep picking at the little things.

4. His family will become strangers in brand new shapes to fit in the crooked picture frames hanging on the wall. His mother’s eyes will scorch you like all the softness she had before is gone. She does not see her reflection in you anymore. The kid who is scared. The bird aimlessly trying to build their nest somewhere that felt safe. They have taken you and put you in a cardboard box by the side of the road. Tears soaking the edges you want to come home to a home that was never yours.

5. You have loved and you have lost. There will be a second guess in every action you make because of course when you love someone you do not want to inflict pain. But you will not remain if you keep letting him and his thoughts of you seep through the walls. Caring is such a heavy thing to do for someone who does not take some of the weight. I miss you has started to barely make a sound. You will get up in the morning and say his name until it no longer sounds like one. It will feel like redemption.

i’m catching up to eijiroctober here’s day 5: child/past. it Leads To Bakukiri feat kirishima and midoriya being friends

Bakugou may not recognize Kirishima Eijirou in high school, but he sure recalls a blubbering kid that dared to stand between him and Midoriya, that blocked his quirk with stone skin. Nobody had ever stood up to Bakugou before, much less blocked his quirk – he’ll never admit he was impressed, though.

ao3 link

The first time they meet, they are six. Kirishima is in the right place at the wrong time.

Midoriya’s head hits the ground. The imprint of Kirishima’s hand remains on his chest, pressuring him until he heaves, anxious tears squeezing between hiccups. But the shove felt, oddly enough, like an encouraging pat on the back, like setting the stage for catharsis. Catharsis for what? Midoriya’s young mind can’t yet fathom it.

Trembling like the new kid in class, about to introduce himself to well-established cliques, Kirishima is also sobbing but silently, his legs parted in a defensive stance, fist raised to encompass Bakugou’s. Kirishima looks pathetic to him, but still his smirk capsizes into a gape, shock sinking its talons into his ribcage and prying it apart for the first time. The blueprints for impressed are reluctantly etching into his expression.

A Journey Rimwards - Chapter 1

There wasn’t much left on the planet of Valvert.  True, it had once been the seat of a galactic superpower, but few cared these days.  If you believed the guides in its aging museums the first hyperdrives were made here – with minerals and isotopes ripped from the planet’s chalky crust, explorers set off from this rock to discover new species and “civilise” them.  (That most of these species rose up in revolt after a century or so was apparently of little consequence.)

Thing is, when this happened more than a handful of millennia ago, few cared.  The planet was too far in the past for any objective history, too dilapidated to hold the interest of your average core-worlder (and far too close to the core for much in the way of organised crime).  These days, if anyone travelled to the old rock it was a disappointing part of a standardised holiday tour.

To live there was worse, in many ways.  It was something of a dull place, with most of the year spent huddling indoors from bone chilling damp, drizzle and fog.  The only contrasts from Valvert’s endless greys were the black of the earth, the white of the stone and the mossy colours of old, gnarled trees.  It was a slow life, but the worst part was to know that you were slowing down still further — fading into obscurity and dying right along with the rusting cities.

When the Clones Wars ended and The New Order was declared some of the more optimistic folks celebrated a change in fortune, a chance to revitalise the stagnant dregs of a society left on this old rock.  But the Galactic Empire did nothing — after all, there was precious little left to mine, nor any great amount of people willing to slave in factories.  Perhaps though, the true reason to not take what little remained was less prosaic — no new empire wants a reminder that nothing lasts forever…

It was to this life that Reann Tomvig was born.

you are dream-filled and you are drifting, a reflection of the gold-gilded boy with white wax wings, clutching at sunbeams even as the weight of your own folly drags you down; neither wisdom nor prudence has ever been your crime.

you are angry and you are aimless, a memory of a divinity, all poisonous smiles and a golden apple balanced on your fingertips. this world is burning silk, chipped marble, guilt, and the absence of another choice is all you’ve ever known.

you are wronged and you are repenting, a shadow kneeling at underground shores: mind full of howling, palms outstretched and ready to leave (refreshed and clean and without a single memory of who you were, what you’d done, at all).

you are fighting and you are finished, a dust mote testing for divine wrath — searching in futility for proof or purpose or someone whose rage to blame rather than your own — and asking a silent sky, are there gods, and do they deserve us?

Have you learned to write a poem 
By writing poems 
In Styrofoam? 

Chipping into marble stone
With no idea of 
How to tone 
A feeling 
Into chromosomes.

Home alone 
Your seat next to 
The telephone 
Writing words 
Inciting verse 
Reminds you
You’re a lonely 

Have you learned that
All your thoughts

Cooking (Avengers Preferences)

I need sleep


Warnings; none 

Steve Rogers/Captain America

Steve can do a lot of things - he can fight, draw, dance, look like a model and play ultimate frisbee. But he can’t cook to save his damn life. Meals with you two would consist of microwaveable food and take out. Or, you’ll just go to the tower and get Tony’s fancy ass robots to make you a proper dinner.

Tony Stark/Ironman

As aforementioned, Tony has robots to do that for you. But do you use them? No, they’re noisy, clunky and chip his darling marble worktops (in the kitchen that he never sets foot in, unless to brag about his said worktops). So, most the time you’ll cook for the both of you, simply because he’s even worse than Steve at cooking and can mess up microwave meals.

Bucky Barnes/Winter Soldier

Surprisingly, Bucky is actually a very good cook. No one is sure if he picked it up at Hydra or taught himself, but you’ll come home to all kinds of food from salads to lasagna. Natasha originally said that  it’s because of his arm, and just to test it out, you got Tony to hack into it somehow and make it mess up, He still made really great chocolate chip pancakes, despite his dead arm. Bucky, 1, Tony, 0.

Thor Odinson

He can toast Pop Tarts and pour milk on cereal. So, you’re covered for breakfast. But how about lunch and dinner? You do that, because last time he tried to make a sandwich, your neighbour ended up in the emergency room. Something to do with Thor getting mad and chucking a knife. Long story.

Loki Laufeyson

Either Loki read a crap ton of cooking books whilst doing time in Asgardian prison, or he’s just a natural. Somehow, he can cook up literally any food from any continent, and get it perfect every time. But he still can’t work out how to use a toaster - The amount of time you’ve had to stop him putting a fork in one of the slots in an attempt to get the bread out is unbelievable. 

Bruce Banner/Hulk 

Bruce knows the basics of cooking things like pasta and pizza, but anything past the difficulty of fairy cakes is enough to freak him out. So, you are generally the cook in the relationship, but he’s allocated food orderer  and payer (I made a word) whenever you get take out.

Clint Barton/Hawkeye

Let’s not go there. You have banned him from the oven, micowave and toaster for safety reasons - But not just for you, for the entire city. If he were to cook, the Great Fire of London would have to step aside and make room for the Great Fire of Manhattan.

Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow

Natasha is annoyingly good at cooking. She’s not exactly Gordon Ramsay (but if you piss her off, they do become chillingly alike) but she can easily make fancy ass food without difficulty, which could easily beat out your pro-microwaving skills, much to your dismay.

Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch

Wanda can cook all kinds of stuff from her home country. You couldn’t pronounce the names of it, even if you tried, but it tastes good. The irony is, she can’t do simple meals. One time, she left the chicken nuggets in the oven for like two hours and they become more coal nuggets than food. You nearly cried.

Pietro Maximoff/Quicksilver

Pietro has never slowed down long enough to learn how to use an oven. He occasionally helps you with measurements and stuff when you’re cooking something, but he quickly gets fed up and is infamous for starting food fights literally every time he tries to ‘help’ you cook.

Sam Wilson/Falcon

You live above a Chinese takeout place, so do you ever really need to cook? You get a discount and they have a sizable and pretty healthy menu, so you just live off of there. Sometimes you’ll go over to the tower if an actual skilled chef like Natasha is cooking, but usually your evenings are chinese takeout and Netflix.

Exhibit A:

I am but a statue,
skin of marble, chipping away.
The crowds all gather and they gawk,
as they each guess about my story,
locked behind unmoving lips.

Seen by many, known by none,
dull eyes skim my greying form,
but still, I’d leave it all behind,
to feel one touch,
alive and warm.

This is usually what happens when I decide to go on a diet

I think I should go on a diet…

Always my plan of what I’m going to eat…

OK! I’m actually going to do it this time!!

but this is what usually happen on diet day…

A little later…

Ok! I’ll have one chip. that will stop my cravings. (I mean one can’t hurt)

But before I know it…

Well there goes my diet…

Chapter Ten: The Water-Jug

For three long days I remained locked in the small cell. It was not so terrible. I still hurt everywhere from the beating I had endured, and I grew hungry from want of food (what little I was given was never enough) but the deadening effect of the curse left me as indifferent to suffering as to hope, and with nothing else to do I sat dully on the wooden bench against the wall and marked the time by the distant chiming of the grandfather clock. The room was bare except for that bench, though eventually someone brought me water for (of course) washing. I saw no one, but my heart was too emptied out and dreary to miss human company. Our bold plans for escape, so recently uppermost in my thoughts, seemed very far away.

anonymous asked:

Hi!So I finished Kings Rising and I still don't get the sudden change of Laurent's attitude towards Damen in the first 8 chapters or something. Acting all cold,like he doesn't give a damn about Damen. Also he knew who Damen was all along, so why now?

Hey Anon I think this is a common query people have cause I had a very similar question off anon a while ago (which I answered privately).

So let’s see if I can explain my interpretation of those painful chapters (I was suffering so much you have no idea).

I believe that after the battle of Charcy Laurent knew he couldn’t pretend anymore to be oblivious about Damen’s identity. And he knew the consequences to that. Edit: I deleted the cut cause people using the app couldn’t see the rest, sorry if it’s too long.

First of all there would be repercussions amongst the Veritians. Laurent has been consistently defamed by his uncle for years having convinced the court and the council Laurent’s a spoiled, unseasoned, temperamental, disobedient prince unfit to rule, who had inappropriate feelings for his own brother, who has been colluding with the enemy, who’s now taken the Akielon prince to his bed and fights beside him. So Laurent couldn’t give margin to his uncle’s accusations, he had to stay away from Damen in order not to prove his uncle right, he had to make clear he was making a political alliance in order to secure his rightful claim to the throne, not a lovers pact.

Then there’re repercussions regarding the Akielons Damen is trying to win to his cause. As we all know Veritians hate the Akielons and vice versa, they are enemies for decades maybe centuries, so an alliance between both cast out princes is unheard of, before that the best both countries could manage was truce. And Laurent knew the fact that Damen was his slave would be a huge issue, an insult, a crime to the Akielon warriors. So he had to maintain appearances, he couldn’t show they had feelings for each other, he couldn’t let be of public knowledge they had been lovers. 

He had to earn the respect of the Akielons almost as much as he had to earn the respect of his own people, so he couldn’t appear weak, and he couldn’t let Damen to appear weak either. Neither of them could afford for their allies to believe they were coming together because they were being influenced, or because they were blinded by love and their feelings for one another, they couldn’t afford doubt about their intentions to secure their places as kings. And Laurent knew if he didn’t keep his distance Damen could jeopardize everything (picture Damen giving a speech, like the one he did on the trial, but to Nikandros and Makedon and their army, it’d be a disaster).

Imagine what would’ve happened if it had come to light from the beginning Laurent had slept with not only his enemy, but most of all the man who killed his brother. What people would think of him. And what would people think of Damen.

We have a little glimpse of how that would go, remember how difficult it was to get the Akielon allies because of the mere presence of Laurent and the rumor that the princes were lovers? Remember this scene (that I like to call, Laurent the swerve master)?

‘Bannermen of Delpha. By now, you have seen the evidence that Kastor killed the King, our father. You know of his alliance with the usurper, the Regent of Vere. Even now, the Regent has troops stationed in Ios, ready to take Akielos. Tonight, we call for your pledge to fight them alongside us, and alongside our ally, Laurent of Vere.’

 There was an uneasy pause. Makedon and Straton had pledged to him in Ravenel, but that was before his alliance with Laurent. These men were being asked to accept Laurent and Vere at first sight, less than a generation out from the war.

 Barieus stepped forward. ‘I want assurances that Vere does not hold undue influence over Akielos.’

 Undue influence. ‘Speak plainly.’

 ‘They say the Prince of Vere is your lover.’

 ‘Who we take to our bed is not your concern.’

 ‘If our King takes Vere to his bed, it is our concern,’ said Barieus.

 ‘Shall I tell them what really happened between us? They want to know,’ Laurent said.

 ‘Do I have the question clear?’ said Laurent, speaking in Akielon. ‘You are asking if I lay with the man who killed my own brother?’

Laurent wore the slave cuff with utter disregard. He had no owner, the aristocratic arrogance of his posture said that. Laurent had always possessed an essential quality of the untouchable. He cultivated a faultless grace on the reclining couch, his chiselled profile and marble-chip eyes those of a statue. The idea that he would let anyone fuck him was impossible.

 Barieus said, ‘A man would have to be ice-cold to sleep with his brother’s killer.’

‘Then you have your answer,’ said Laurent.

And finally there are repercussions for Damen and Laurent’s relationship. That conversation they had at the tent right after the battle of Charcy is very powerful and encompasses a lot of what Laurent feels. The way he said it was meant to hurt Damen but deep down the content of his words were close to what he felt, especially the doubt and the hurt of being lied to. Also, before then Laurent was the only one, to his knowledge, who knew who Damen really was, so I guess it was easier for him to process his feelings when he was the only one who knew he was sleeping with the man who killed his brother. He probably didn’t understand it either, how he could fall for Damen of all people. It was very confusing and very difficult for him to accept his feelings before, let alone now that everyone would know Damen’s real identity.

Besides, Laurent needs to be in control, he must have the upper hand on every aspect of his life, so he had to have control over this too. He couldn’t let himself get hurt, he couldn’t let Damen dictate the tone of their first real encounter as Laurent and Damianos, he had to let Damen know he knew all along, he had to see Damen’s reaction to the truth, he had to see what would be Damen’s actions from that moment on. Would this change his feelings about Laurent? Would Damen fight for them even with everything that was at stake, even when Laurent himself was pushing him away? Laurent was giving Damen a chance to take a step back and to give up on them.

So I believe at the same time that Laurent was trying to assess his own feelings and Damen’s too, he was also trying to make an alliance between two enemy people to work out. Imagine how confusing that must be, the rollercoaster of emotions he was going through. So his incongruent behavior at the beginning of Kings Rising is very understandable.

I think that once he started to gain everyone’s trust specially Makedon’s, the alliance was secured, Nikandros was almost tolerating him, and he saw Damen’s feelings were true he started to slowly let himself show his feelings too.

Besides, after their encounter with Jokaste when they learned Damen probably had a child that was in danger and being sent to The Regent, Damen needed Laurent, he was hurting so Laurent couldn’t keep his cold stance towards Damen anymore. Laurent realized Damen needed him to be by his side as much as Damen had been beside him this whole time. Which was not an easy thing for Laurent to do, because no matter how many times Damen proved his value and his feelings, their past wouldn’t go away, their history of mutual hate was difficult to leave behind, he had to overcome so much to allow himself to love Damen as Damianos.

So I believe the fact that Damen probably for the first time needed him and he knew he was the only person who could comfort Damen, he was the only person who could help Damen was a huge turning point for Laurent’s behavior.  Because after everything they went through Laurent believed against all logic that Damen loved him and that he loved Damen too, so Laurent would do everything in his power not to let his uncle and Damen’s family hurt him anymore.

Phew, this was long. It’s just that Laurent is so complex and Laurent’s feelings are even more complex and difficult to explain, I felt it was important to have a full perspective of what he was probably feeling throughout that first half of Kings Rising to understand why he was first hostile, than cold, than loving towards Damen. This seemingly contradictory behavior is one of the things I like the most about Laurent, because it shows how complex of a character he is <3

What do you think Anon, my interpretation makes sense to you? If you had a different perception feel free to tell me, I love hearing different opinions.


Recipe here if you want to try them. Brookies happen to be an off the wall combination that my sister and I came up with years ago when we couldn’t agree on baking brownies or cookies.

Just a short drabble that popped into my head when I was watching a baking show today.

Since finding the bunker Dean has basically claimed the kitchen… much to your utter annoyance. Once day when Sam and Dean are on a supply run you take advantage of free reign of the kitchen. You smile to yourself when you discover all the ingredients for a sweet treat you like to call brookies- a combination of cookies and brownies. You’ve made this sweet at Bobby’s as well as Jody’s many times but the thing is that your brothers have never tasted brookies, because EVERY single one was eaten by the time your brothers came to get you. You turn on your music and start to bake.

You preheat the oven to 350℉ while the oven is preheating you grab a 9 by 12 pan and spray it thoroughly with cooking spray, then set off to the side while making the brownie mix. “I really hope that the boys like these I mean considering the fact that every single time I bake these, they don’t last long.” You say out loud to yourself as you put the batter in the pan and put it in the oven.

🐝 🐝 🐝 🐝 🐝

“Something smells good.” Dean says when they get back to the bunker. “Like Y/N is baking something.”

“Well let’s go find out, cause you’re right it smells amazing in here.” Sam agrees. The two of them head to the kitchen where they find you pulling a toothpick out of brownies. They’re not completely done so why the hell were you pulling it out of the oven? “Uh Y/N what are you doing? I don’t think those are done.”

“They’ll finish baking once I marble in the cookie dough.” You answer as you close the oven door, not paying much attention to your brother’s question.

“What?” Dean asks. Now his comment brought you back to reality. You groan.

“You guys weren’t supposed to be back yet… which means you idiots just ruined the surprise.” Dean’s eyebrows furrow together in confusion. “How did we ruin the surprise, we’ve walked in on you baking before.”

“True, but you’ve never had brookies.” You then return your attention to marbling the cookie dough into the half-baked brownies.

“A what now?” Sam asks.

“Brookies. They’re brownies that have chocolate chip cookies marbled on top.” You say as you put the pan back into the oven.

🐝 🐝 🐝 🐝 🐝

When the brookies were cool enough to touch you cut three out one for your brothers and you. “Wow.” Sam says when he takes a bite.

“Told ya that they’d be good.” Dean takes a bite of his then tries to steal the entire pan. “Hey not the whole pan Dean!”

“You need to make these more squirt.” Dean says with a smile as he cuts himself another one.

“I’ve made them multiple times- the only reason why this is the first time that you have had them is because they’re normally gone by the time you pick me up from either Bobby’s or Jody’s.”

“Well they’re just that damn good kiddo.” Dean then ruffles your hair. It always makes you smile when you can make Sam and Dean smile.
