Dean finding a picture of old Castiel, fem!Castiel, not knowing that this is Cas. And going on and on about her beauty.

“Holy shit Cas, who is this hot chick? Damnn.”

and the thing is, Dean would only be talking about her eyes. How blue they are, how he’s a sucker for blue eyes in general, how that beige coat just emphasises the BLUE in her eyes even more.

Dean writing an ode to the woman’s beauty, before Cas quietly says, “that’s me. Was me. This is my old vessel.”

Dean pausing immediately, “this is…you?” Because he realises that he basically spent the last 10 minutes describing, in excruciating detail, how hot his best friend is to his best friend.

Dean wanting to act casual about it and saying “Oh, man, great job. That’s a good vessel you picked. That’s. Um. Yeah. Good…good choice.”

Dean hastily adding, “Not that you, you know, did a bad job with your current vessel or anything. Jimmy’s great, like, in terms of, as in, body-wise. I mean, same blue eyes, right? Uh. And well-built, too. Sturdy. He’s, I mean you, you’re, you’re good looking now too. Um.”

Dean finally just blurting out “basically what I wanna say is that you’ve always been hot, cas.” before bolting the fuck out

Cas, still not having said anything other than the original clarification, just staring after him with confused comprehension, furrowed brow, squinty eyes, and a cocked head.

Imagine jamming to old school music with Woozi while you two are in the kitchen, making breakfast.

I think the kind of landscape that you grew up in, it lives with you. I don’t think it’s true of people who’ve grown up in cities so much; you may love a building, but I don’t think that you can love it in the way that you love a tree or a river or the colour of the earth; it’s a different kind of love.

The air is like frozen lace on your skin, delicate and cold. The sky is washed with grey, watery light illuminating thin patches to brilliance. That special cold and pale light, only the winter‘s sun can give, makes everything glow with slippery ice. It‘s the perfect day for staying home but sadly, you had to work today. You‘re seated at the bus stop with both arms crossed over your chest, hugging your body, as if that could provide you with some kind of warmth. 

All of sudden you see a woman getting dragged by her poodle towards another dog owner across the street and as expected, they collide. The man has lost his hat due to the incident, causing a royal blue strand on his head to become visible and remarkably stand out from the rest of his hair. Instantly noticing the phenomenon, the lady lets a loud gasp escape her lips and urgently draws the guy‘s attention to her streak of hair, that coincidentally has the exact same pigment as his. The next thing that happens is acted out just like in the movies, the lovers jump into each other‘s arms and share a passionate kiss as they pull away. At the same time, the royal blue pieces of hair from each one of them loose their colour and blend into the rest. Eventually, it seems like the scenery has turned out to be the complete opposite of a simple coincidence. Oh, the things you‘d do to finally experience the same spectacle…When will it finally be your turn to find your soulmate?

  • DARK BROWN is a colour associated with nature work. Dark brown is fantastic to use as a vicarious grounding technique, especially if you live in a colder climate like I do and can’t get out to experience the soil, mud and waters for so many snowy months of the year. It allows the wearer to give off a ‘down-to-earth’ type of vibe that makes them easily approachable and trustworthy.This is also a colour to use when working with gardening and other plant and herb magick as a growth and health enhancement as well as a protective blanket for colder nights. Stones that work well with dark brown energy are black tourmaline, jasper and jet. 

  • BROWN is the colour of the mysterious, muddy, clouded and hard to read. Brown can be used to create a temperamental attitude and sudden mood swings; both in extreme positive nature AND extreme negative nature. It’s another colour to use with caution because if focused incorrectly it could come back and hinder the casters own mood in the form of their self-esteem temporarily. Stones that work well with brown energy are opal, citrine and hematite.

  • TAN is calming and honest, like dark brown it has a connection to nature work because tan focuses on animals, both domestic and wild. Tan is a colour to call on when trying to meet a new familiar if you haven’t made contact yet because it gives off a warm and welcoming energy. As a rescue cat foster, I use tan often on new furbabies who come here so that they settle in easier. :) Tan can also be used to help aid others in your circle with small, practical favours in regards to their own pets and animals well being. Stones to use with tan are amber, jasper, mookaite, and rose quartz.

*This concludes Colour Magick. If you’ve missed any of the colour lessons and would like to read more on this, just check the link at the top of this post. Also if you have a topic you’re curious about and would like me to cover, send me an ask and I’ll see what I can write up for you!

Serenity- Hannah Baker Imagine 13 Reasons Why Scenario

Summary- What happens when Hannah wakes up in heaven,kept company by a certain friendly Jock?

It felt like I was falling,falling forever.
It may have been seconds,minutes or hours but the wind rushed through my short hair,the light fabric that decorated my skin,brushing over my face.A dress maybe?
I didn’t know.I kept my eyes closed.Afraid to open them.
I thought that when you die,you are finished.Nothing more than just a memory.Well,a memory to those who care to remember who you were.Who I was.Hannah Baker,a friend,crush,daughter,classmate, ‘that girl in the hall’,ex-friend,slut.
Heaven was a term I toyed with.Something of abstract stability,that keeps everyone tied to the earth at peace for when their own time comes.And it will.Eventually.

Then everything stopped.My hands by my side,I was lying on what felt like a cold floor.I peeled my eyes open,blinking away the blinding light.
Raising my knees up to stand,I placed my hand out to stop myself from falling over.The feeling of nausea cursed through by body and I begged it was nothing more than a passing wave.Turning,I raked my eyes over the room,everything was white.The floor,walls,ceiling.It appeared to be a room that had no end.
So everything they said was real.This is what ‘Heaven’ is-the cases of people who had near death experiences:the bright light,feeling of peace…It was all true.But I’m alone.I don’t think anyones here,at least no-one seems to be.This is what I wanted.To be alone,the cause of no ones problem,where no-one can hurt me,where I don’t hurt anyone…someone.Clay.Helmet.
Has he heard the tapes? Does he think he is to blame? I hope he doesn’t hate me,he deserves someone,someone who wouldn’t ruin him-

Hannah?”,a familiar voice called,one that I couldn’t quite put a name too.Maybe I was hallucinating.Holding onto one last fragment of what my life once was.Then my eyes fell onto him.

“Jeff?”,my voice quite,the realisation of him stood in front of me “Jeff Atkins!”,I said louder this time.

“In the flesh.”,he laughed at my confusion,he still looked the same.Still clad in his blue liberty jacket that always seemed to fit him perfectly. “I hoped you wouldn’t be here”,he said,hanging his head.

“You hoped….How did you know?”,I asked,confused,knowing exactly what he was referring to but how could he know?He was no longer there.He was with me.Wherever we were.

“I’ve been keeping an eye on you and all of our friends back in high school.Them and my parents.”,he raised a slight smile,his eyes dimmed at the sound of his parents.

“I’m so,so sorry was my fault..If I had just told-”,the grief emptied itself from my body as I stuttered over my words.My body shuddered as a cry escaped my lips,hushed ever so slightly when Jeff pulled me into his chest.I wrapped my hands around his waist,buried my head into his chest.
“Hannah,it’s not your fault.”
“It is.”
“No,you were not in the wrong,you never were and there are other factors but…it doesn’t matter it’s over now.And thanks to you,my parent know the truth.”

“How do you?”,I sniffed and pulled away from him,so that we were standing only a small distance apart.

“The tapes Hannah.As I said I’ve been keeping an eye on everyone.”,he revealed.

“Who has them?”,I rushed out,curious.Ignored how he could possibly ‘keep an eye’ on everyone if we were stuck here.In a room of white and not much else.

“Mr Porter was the last.”

“Mr Porter?That doesn’t make sense,he’s supposed to be the last,I’ve only just…”

“You’ve been gone for a while Hannah.I don’t quite know where,but it seems as if you weren’t ready to be here yet,but now you are.And don’t worry Tony did everything as you instructed,a lot has happened with Justin,Jessica…Clay.”,Jeff revealed much to my relief.

“Clay?..Is he okay?Is Clay okay?”,I asked.

“Why don’t you see for yourself?”, he gestured forward when the room stripped itself of its white sheet,the colours entwining with green,brown,purple and more.Rubbing my eyes,I was now stood on the sidewalk.A red mustang passed with three faces that I recognised.Skye,Tony and Clay.

“They are happy?”,I asked for confirmation,my smile brighter than what it had been in a year.

“More relief,relief of doing the right thing.He loved you,you know”,Jeff revealed.

A silence clung over the both of us,dwelling in our own thoughts.Maybe he did love me but not enough to make everything or anyone disappear.It would have changed some things but not everything.He deserved to be happy.To be loved.But by someone that also radiated the same emotions as he did.Someone that would appreciate him the way Clay Jensen should be appreciated.He deserves that more than I deserved him.

I felt Jeff leave my side,turning he was now a good few feet away from me,when he held out his hand.I looked down at his palm,walking over to him.

“I’ll look after you now”,he said,as I gripped his hand.

We continued to walk down the street,the colours of the earth slipped away as white surrounded the both of us.The serenity calling out to us,calling us home.
