Re: Videogamer Atem from this post:

@hiramiyugioh​ replied: XDD whatever game he plays, Kaiba manages to find and challenge him

Atem spent 3 days trying to master DOOM, going straight for Ultra Nightmare (he had to restart four times), before delving into the multiplayer. Around half an hour in, a person called BEWDown2Me starts hunting him in every match. Atem hasn’t worked out yet how Kaiba has so many different accounts. Or when he learnt to play DOOM. Or how he’s doing this if he’s in an investor meeting til 6.  

Pokemon they have to arrange to play. Seto counter-teams him and still loses. 

Skyrim isn’t multiplayer, so that required some thought. They end up achievement racing. Atem wins by not getting distracted with cheese wheels.

He has to explain in chat that this is a Build Server, not a PVP Server when a blocky character in a Kaibaland hoodie shows up while he’s playing Minecraft. Atem gets bored after making a simple house. Kaiba makes a replica Blue Eyes. Silently, Atem concedes that round.

Yes, one more person in the very small trashcan we have at the moment!

Ahem.

  • After Widowmaker gets rescued and rehabilitated by Overwatch, she never loses her blue skin. Everyone keeps calling her Amelie or Widowmaker and she absolutely hates it. She confesses this sharply one night on the rooftop to Hanzo, explaining that Amelie is dead and she’s trying to not be Widowmaker anymore. After a quiet moment, Hanzo asks if he may call her Aconite. She shivers when she hears him whisper that word, and she accepts the name.
  • Hanzo only calls her that when their alone, and glares whenever anyone calls her Amelie.
  • They often meet up on the roof in the middle of the night, laying on the ground in opposite directions but so their heads are side by side. Both of their hair is untied and draped across the side the rooftop. Eyes watching the stars cross the dark heavens. They stay there in silence for hours, neither able to fall asleep.
  • Widowmaker will always make sure Hanzo has eaten. Noticing whenever he hits bad days that he tends to avoid his own health. She’ll sit with him until he eats, saying she won’t until he does and that always gets him chewing.
  • She loves playing with his hair on the rare occasions he lets it down. Braiding a hundred small plaits in his dark locks just to unravel them and do it all over again. Overtime this becomes a calming routine, especially after she’s had a nightmare. 

This ship is so interesting and the dynamics just blow my mind. idk bruh it just really connects with me <3

All the While, Part 3

For the first time you could ever remember, Sirius was on the outs with the rest of the Marauders and they were all keeping the details of their feud from you. You had cornered Sirius a few times to see what was going on with him, but he would just refuse to meet your eyes and say he had “fucked up, as usual,” before walking away.

You finally dragged Remus into an empty classroom and grabbed him by the front of his robes and dragged his face down to your level. His eyes wide with surprise and maybe a little fear, Remus said, “Um, something wrong, Y/N, you utter delight?”

“Why yes, Remus, you absolute ray of sunshine. One of my dearest friends appears to be spiraling to oblivion because three of my other friends have ostracized him, and all he will tell me is that he, and I quote, ‘fucked up, as usual.’ Would you care to elaborate?”

7 with Sam Winchester!!!!!!

Prompt #7: “Let’s have a baby.”

Warnings: Mentions of sex, fluff


You’d never thought that three minutes could go by so slow.

About a month ago, after a long night of drinking, Sam and you had slipped up and forgot to use protection. You had completely forgot about it until last week when you started feeling sick to your stomach. You were going through every possibility in the book until you remembered- oh shit.

You’re not sure how you would feel if you do happen to be pregnant. You’d never really thought about having kids before, not with the hectic lifestyle that you live as a hunter. But the more you think about it, the more you realize that maybe you do want a baby. You and Sam have been dating for almost five years, and now that the whole God and Amara situation has been settled, there couldn’t be a better time.

The three-minute timer on your phone goes off, and you quickly get up off the bathroom counter and check the results of the pregnancy test. The test only shows one line, meaning that its negative- you’re not pregnant.

Disappointment runs through your body, something you would not have expected to feel only a few hours ago. Throughout the timespan of buying the test and now, you’ve realized that you definitely do want a baby with Sam.

Throwing the test away in the trash, you walk out of the bathroom and go to find Sam. You desperately wanted to talk to him about this, but you’re not sure whether or not he’ll want the same things you do. Despite dating for so long, this topic of conversation has never been brought up.

“Sam, I need to talk to you.” Your voice comes out shaky as you enter the bunker’s library. Sam is perched up on a chair, his head buried in the new lore book of the week. He looks up at you, a look of concern spreading across his face as he places the bookmark in between the pages and sets his book down.

“What’s wrong? Are you okay?” He gets up from his chair, worry prominent in his voice.

“Yeah, yeah, everything’s okay.” You reassure him, a soft smile appearing on your lips. “I just, I’ve been thinking lately… What would you think about having a baby?”

“A baby?” Sam’s eyebrow raises. “Huh. I guess I’d like them. When I was younger I used to think about having kids, living the normal life, but once I got dragged back into hunting that kind of just seemed like a fantasy to me. Why? What’s going on?”

“So… Remember a while ago, when we forgot to use a condom?”

“When did that… Oh.” His eyes go wide. “Are you pregnant?”

“No, I’m not. I just took a test to confirm that. But, I did some thinking, and I think I want kids.” You breathe out.

You weren’t sure what you were expecting, but for Sam to run over to you with a big smile on his face and engulf you in a hug was certainly not it.

“I’m assuming that’s what you want to?” You laugh.

“Yes, you have no idea.” Sam kisses your forehead. “I just wasn’t sure how you would feel about it… You’ve never brought it up once. Plus, our lives are so crazy, I didn’t know-“ You cut him off with a kiss, both of you smiling into it. You wrap your arms around his neck, pulling him in closer as his hands roam your back.

“So, let’s do it. Let’s have a baby.”

The Black of Blood

Jonas and Sidney just wanted to get supplies with as little drama as possible. But that’s not how this world works.

Zombie Apocolypse AU.

Read on AO3

It was far too quiet in the parking lot. A single, abandoned pickup truck sat in the middle of cracked concrete. The body was starting to rust, weeds sprouting around its deflated tires and orange dust lay on its windows. It had been months and months since it had last been turned on, left in the middle of the parking lot to become part of the scenery.

In the dusty truck bed, Sidney and Jonas sat, their eyes trained not only on the supermarket in front of them but on each and every alleyway and road around them. The houses around them were spaced out and few in number. The roads were wide and filled with pot holes.

They were in the open and not safe. Not yet at least.

anonymous asked:

Do you think we'll see Dean and Jody discuss Cas? Does Jody even know Cas exists? They told her s8 angels exits and she was claire but still i thibk textually they never mentioned his name around her? Im guessing they are gonna discuss Deans feeling about Mary since Jody knew her but Cas?

I don’t know, which I know I say to like basically all questions about speculation but this one is something I don’t really have a clue about and I’m not even sitting on my thumbs pretending not to have an opinion because I’d rather not say anything on the record until I know I’m right or not… I really, genuinely, to the best of my ability to sound it all out and guess from the available information, don’t know :P 

It depends how they handle Cas being gone overall, whether Dean’s openly, loudly mourning him all the time every episode constantly, which is a detail where I’d only be able to offer you a confident speculation on the eve of this episode anyway after seeing the first 2. If Dean goes stoic and jaw-twitchy but quiet about it then probably not but that’s just like… super obvious and short term.

In the mean time, please assume the tin foil hat position you’d take to listen to a conversation that sounds like this:

There’s quite a lot to pack in with meeting Patience, and getting our guys some good face to face time with Jody for any emotional support they need to sponge off her. Sam doesn’t seem to be around so he may be off with Jack, but if he wasn’t, he’d probably want to learn how to be a mom to him from Jody, for all we know :P Thematically it might sort of be that way anyhow - if Patience doesn’t come in direct contact with Sam it seems ridiculously unlikely she’s not going to be thematically connected to him and therefore Jack through an extremely easy join the dots between 13x03 and 1x09. (Sam already kinda went one round with this sort of thing in 12x04 so in a way he’s got his booster shot of dealing with it directly so it can just be storytelling mirrors for him :P)

Certainly Jody is more connected to Mary symbolically and in general the Wayward Sisters stuff has been more about parenting and those dynamics recently, with 11x12 looking at how Jody copes and teasing us with hindsight for Mary’s return with Dean talking to her about wishing his mom had been around, and in 12x06 and 12x22 she and Mary sort of bounce off each other as moms directly in a continuation of that - in 12x16 she’s not around except on the other end of phonecalls but Dean’s carrying on parenting Claire as a hunter a lil bit. 

Of all of those, 11x12 was the only one to make a nod to Cas with Claire holding grumpy cat in one of her scenes, but the show has decided to treat him a lot as just the inciting incident to get her onto the road hunting by dragging her into the life, while Dean does the thing he does around feisty wayward teenagers, and probably was mostly responsible for switching Claire’s amateur detective attempt onto a hunting thing in 10x20. I don’t want to make Claire cringe but I think she thought he was actually kinda cool and inspired her or something, because she had not had any interest in the supernatural side of things before that episode… 

Despite all her connections to Cas I think Dean sort of birthed hunter!Claire, so the story sort of wanders that direction and leaves Cas behind because he’s more like Azazel in Claire’s story than anything, even if a very sad soft squishy Azazel who gave her a stuffed toy for her birthday :P Still they played it like her forgiving and hugging Cas was about the same as Dean finally getting to shoot Azazel, in both case freeing them to go do their job with the angsty backstory resolved…

In any case, I think Cas is probably an emergency contact Jody has for Claire-related stuff, although whether they told her to or not, she’d probably always call Sam and Dean first because she knows and understands them (and has met them), and I think the story is asking us to believe that with this symbolism of Claire getting past what Cas did to her family, she’s in a new stage of life he’s not a part of in the same way even if she does cling onto grumpy cat, and Cas is still family to people who consider Jody as family, who she considers family. Sort of shunting him from awkward dad no. 3 of 4 as per 10x20′s recap and symbolism to a weird uncle or something. (Although if Jody has mom symbolism to both Claire and Dean, that makes them siblings and Cas her brother in law… this found family stuff is really difficult :P)

So there’s all that shaping my expectations - Claire’s not in the episode and she’s our connection between Cas and Jody. Previous episodes have made it clear that Sam and Dean really hate calling even beloved friends with their shit and don’t tell Jody alarmingly huge things like that Mary came back from death. She’s been offering a shoulder to Dean personally while he’s been going through all his stuff, and in 9x08 I think Sam did open up to Jody more than Dean even when they were all in the same room, never mind in that and 7x12 they got split up from Dean and actually bonded (And I think this is also a quote from Kim Rhodes but also just something fairly obvious, that because Sam was the one connected to her more in her intro episode and ended up shooting her zombie son for her, they’ve always had a closer emotional bond via shared trauma). 

I don’t think it’s showing that Sam and Jody aren’t as close now to have her switch focus to Dean but that Jody is determined to get Dean to open up to her *too*. In 12x06 they have really different attitudes about her when Sam makes the comment about Dean’s “animated Japanese erotica” which show how they’ve grown in different directions with Jody. So I think Sam’s closeness to her is fairly accepted fact and now Dean’s the tough nut to crack for her :P Anyway she’s made the offer two or three times now that she’s there to talk if Dean in particular needs her (definitely 10x08 and 12x06… Can’t remember if she said as much in 11x12 although they did also have an actual personal conversation in that episode, so one point to Jody there). I think 12x06 made it clear there’s still an owed conversation of greater than that opening up and spilling the beans on what’s making him emo right now, so there’s that.

And Cas and Mary have been connected all through season 12, in their arcs, in the subtext, in basically everything, and Dean textually named that in 12x22 that in the start of the season he’d “got Cas back, got Mom back” and in 12x23 of course he loses both, again, in a highly inter-connected way, and so again they’re going to be parallel lines to him, though again I think showing how he feels differently about one and the other and hopefully we get to unpack what those individual losses mean by the way of having both at once (and Crowley, who often in these cases is included to put a finger on the scale :P). 

One of the things confusing me right now is of last night’s behind the scenes set peeking which revealed a Turducken Slammer relaunch from the ever-hopeful Biggerson’s, which is not letting frequent murder and mayhem and dodgy meat recalls on its premises stop it from trying. Even if it’s as overall irrelevant to the story in the sense of being mentioned or actually explored as the Mystery Spot sign in 12x01, it’s still telling us something and making connections. I mean yeah it can just be worldbuilding continuity but it’s always picked for a reason and they know what all these signs mean and how to connect them, which is why we have the beer language for example. 

And Jody is pretty deeply connected to season 7 and Dean’s arc. And this connection was obliquely referenced in 12x06 in that moment I already mentioned, where Sam outs Dean’s porn habits to Jody. It was a nod from Yockey that he’d watched past Jody episodes because in every way it was a season 12 style rehash of Sam’s “strictly into Dick” comment, which was from a Jody episode. And… look, maybe this is the best way to explain how I felt the season 12 references were kind of out of this world in their scope and intelligence :P 

For starters, that comment was not just a run of the mill Dick joke, that was a Robbie level Dick joke, which collected up a hilarious character thing for Sam (his fucked up moment when he should have made the barb, his determination to hang onto the Best Zinger Of His Life until Dean next gave him an opportunity and bless Sam’s cotton socks he delivered it like a pro :P) and Dean’s spiralling obsession with Dick as a Dick or Anime thing. Dean’s anime-watching was from 7x01, when he was waiting for Godstiel to blow up the planet in despair, and was at just about the lowest point we’ve ever seen him. In 7x02 Bobby gives him the “You just lost your best friend” pep talk, which is a role of comforting parental figure Dean then went and lost that season when Bobby died. And in the end of 7x02 Dean reveals how Not Fine he is to Bobby’s answerphone, which is important that it’s never commented on again but I think affects how Bobby treats him and in the subtext of 7x09 you have to know all that happened. 

In 7x09 Bobby’s on his farewell tour of comforting advice to his adopted sons, in the last great set of retconning episodes to embed him permanently into their backstory as having always been there for them, to make it hurt juuust that much more than it already does. Towards the end of the episode he has another talk with Dean that mirrors advice Dean will get from Frank and Ness in 7x11 and 7x12, and *that* is opened up by Dean getting drugged by the turducken slammer and going on about how he doesn’t care about how he doesn’t care, and that he feels great for the first time since Cas and the black goo. Like, wow, his depression and hurt and betrayal didn’t go anywhere just because he said he was fine, who knew :P 

And that’s the backstory to Dean’s obsession over killing Dick, who has taken everything from him by this point in season 7, told through the medium of anime and sandwiches and somehow always ending up about Cas and Dean’s feelings for him. The anime was an attempt to not care and not think about it that the slammer actually inflicted on Dean, and was used to get Dean to tell us how he really felt. By 7x12 it’s a joke for Sam to make implying Dean’s into lowercase dick, with one of those false binaries the show loves making. And like in season 13 Dean’s lost a love interest and a parental figure, and now things are really blurry about which one hurts more in this short run of episodes before they both reappear in the narrative and make it confusing. 7x11 makes the hurt most about Bobby. 7x12 subtextually tells us rather a lot about Cas, especially by making a Bobby figure to contrast in the background with the lady in the shop who literally calls Dean an idjit at some point, I think, or some other Bobby-ism, to make it clear that Ness is definitely not standing in for that and all those Cas parallels are probably where it’s at while Dean fangirls over him :P 

And nope I’m not even done unpacking the Yockey Robbie Edlund turducken because of course JODY is all tied up in this completely. She’s incidentally in 7x02 as a useful local beloved character who can get menaced by Dr Sexy and let them know there’s leviathan nearby, and so she’s pretty embedded in the early Leviathan worldbuilding. Of course Edlund being Edlund, while the lil girl leviathan is channel surfing for ideas, there’s a Biggerson’s advert, I think the same one that plays in 7x03 or 7x22 about their pie salad bar (it’s like a salad bar, but pie!) and in the end she lands on wanting to be a Dr Sexy when she grows up. 

(Stop me when you think this might somehow subtextually be about Dean :P)

The Dr Sexy leviathan has an amusingly childlike view on being a surgeon as a result of forming its opinions on that job while being a little girl, and apparently not listening to the memories of the poor guy it ate except to get a frightening knowledge of anatomy. It very much acts the part of being a doctor on TV who can just wheel patients off to perform unnecessary surgery, as per the malpractice of our favourite sexy doctor on TV - and there’s a thing to contemplate about “I’m not a doctor, I just play one one TV” but that’s digressing :P But it goes and menaces Jody and Bobby goes and saves her, and Robbie brings her back 2 more times in season 7, once in 7x06 to thank Bobby for saving her, and to link them romantically so she can even more handily take over the parental role by being romantically linked to their adopted father, which is just a sort of easy association to help. And in 7x12 of course she’s just there and helping and mourning Bobby a lil bit with Sam (since Dean was the one in the focus for mourning Bobby in 7x11), drinking his dubiously won scotch from 11x16 (… Rufus didn’t have to let him have that one, Bobby WAS insisting it was a ghost :P I think he just wanted Bobby to have a win after seeing how down he was.) But that IS a Jody episode so it would have been on Yockey’s list for homework for 12x06 and it contained the anime/Dick thing. 

And, if he’d watched the deleted scene, at the end of the episode Dean makes it clear that he’s not sitting alone in the dark watching anime, he is strictly into Dick, and goes and reads an article on Dick “erecting” a tower.

(I hope it is clear how much I love the Dick references in season 7 by now and I’m not sorry, they started it :P)

So yeah. Jody is already intrinsically linked into a ridiculous chunk of the Dean/Cas subtext from season 7, the absolute wild nonsense that Edlund and Robbie were messing around with with pie and turducken and Dr Sexy and anime and Dick, to create the absolutely most ridiculous, like… no one part of it on its own in isolation doesn’t make you cry laughing, bit of storytelling (that, of course, added up into a full picture, just makes you cry a lot in earnest for poor Dean right then).

To me this is the picture of Dean mourning Cas in season 7, and the unique elements to season 7 are the anime (already referenced in season 12 just as an aside and I don’t think as anything more than a witty reference to past canon except that Dean was “kinda bummed” about Cas being gone (and don’t worry, I’m getting to Berens :P)) and the turducken, and Jody as one of the key characters wandering through all this picking up the emotional baton from Bobby, which she has been attempting to use on them ever since season 9, when they got back in contact with her after neglecting her all of season 8. 

(And, oh gosh, I stared out the window to try and collect my thoughts for the next paragraph and washed up on thinking about Sam going and crashing out on Jody over the Dean in Purgatory period instead of hitting a dog and ending up with Amelia, like Dean with Lisa except by the time Dean gets back Sam’s probably been whipped into shape and is wandering around Sioux Falls in a deputy uniform…)

Anyway yeah, to go back to 13x03 finally… If the Turducken sign isn’t portentous of anything, I’m still seeing the Gas n Sip sign, in the maroon colours rather than blue one, but still, in a Berens episode. And if you can’t get mourning Cas in season 7 via Jody and a turducken related things to stick, you can totally shortcut through the fairly simple steps of Berens + Gas n Sip = 9x06 and assume whatever personal feelings stuff Dean and Jody talk about, this is a great way to cram Cas into the background via the enormous glowing yellow sun that has come to represent him. (And, of course, it was Berens who had the “morning, Sunshine” line for us in 12x03.)

So I think the set stuff and character stuff all have some fairly good slap to the back of the head things for Dean to maybe open up to Jody or at the very least for whatever he says to her to be heavily subtextually about Cas even if Jody asks about Mary. Because Dean’s wearing weirdly Cas-coded clothes, and Jody is wearing the family unity red n blue plaid colours. The maroon Gas n Sip seems to be more about family and even Wayward Sisters, since it was prominently used behind Claire in 12x16 and maroon has been a lot about family because of the infamous red hoodie that Kevin, Charlie and Cas all wore, and that Mary was put in maroon within an episode of getting back (and Chuck tried to cash in on it in 11x21 to make himself look harmless and cute and relatable in the same hoodie). But even in 12x16 having the Gas n Sip sun looking over Claire, with her connections to Cas, made it seem like he was watching over her too. The colours change the meaning in some ways but the overall message is the same. I think in 13x03 we have to remember it’s also going to be about the Wayward Sisters so whether Jody and Dean are having a personal conversation or not, the sun might be about Cas but the overall thing might be a more neutral family building thing for the main arc stuff. If it was a blue Gas n Sip I’d immediately think it was all about Cas and oozing tragic subtext *everywhere* and completely unavoidably.

(it might also just be that they’re maroon because Biggerson’s are and maybe there’s some sort of corporate alliance of Gas n Sips connected to Biggerson’s, because, after all, Dick Roman ended up owning both franchises and by 7x23 you can see that both are involved in his masterplan, which is part of why I love so much Cas is then intimately connected to both later while still in a gloomy penance mood about the whole thing and everything he’s ever done since…)

… So to actually answer your question, I can see some really really convoluted reasons in the history of the show that if Dean and Jody have their big important “seriously how are you” talk in this exact location while hanging out and hugging in front of all these signs, that they might either not mention Cas at all because he’s not a part of the openly stated story going on between Dean and Jody and all this family stuff and Wayward Sisters and everything absorbed into the entire chunk of the show about parental relationships, of which Jody has been a part since 7x06 thanks to Robbie. Or it’s a part of the emotional backstory to Dean losing Cas which Edlund kicked into high gear in 7x02 while dibsing all the important Dean and Bobby conversations which shine a light on Dean’s loss and Cas, also dragging Jody into a ridiculous web of Dr Sexy and stuff that Robbie and then much much later Yockey were playing around with.

Either way,

“Y/N….Y/N can you hear me?” someone questioned. It was a woman…that you were sure of. You were also sure you had heard her voice somewhere before, but in that moment couldn’t place it. You tried opening your eyes and were met with bright green orbs staring back at you. “Yixing! Her eyes are open.”

“Thank you, Sora….” a tall man with kind eyes leaned over and looked at you, “Welcome back, Y/N. My name is Yixing…no, don’t go back to sleep now, you just woke up.” He placed a rolled up towel under your head to keep your head propped up. “I’m the healer of Minseok’s pack….if you’re wondering where you are you’re at the pack house, specifically in the bathroom.

"if anyone has taken up Jimmy’s mantle as Claire’s dad in any regard, it’s Dean. Even in 10x20, when Cas was around, Dean’s the one who really bonded with her. " Yeah just give Dean another character while Cas is completely isolated. What a good idea! Its not like every chars revolves around him. Charlie,Jody,Donna,Ketch, Bobby, Mary and now Claire too

Do you really think that Claire’s character “revolves around” Dean? That she isn’t entirely her own character? or that her dynamic is very different with Sam than it is with Dean?

It’s not a good thing or a bad thing, but she’s clearly just as important to Sam. It’s just… Sam relates to people differently than Dean does.

And Jody. You really think Sam’s friendship with Jody isn’t as strong as Dean’s? I mean, I’ve always thought at least her character “revolved around” Sam more. Sure Dean and Jody have bonded over “parental” sorts of things, while Sam and Jody have bonded more as “friends.”

Thing is, other characters serve as mirrors to bring out traits and show underlying characteristics and feelings of the main characters. And because Sam and Dean are fundamentally different people, the side characters are going to reflect those differences.

This is how storytelling works.

And since the start of the show, and for the majority of the 12 years it’s been on, Dean has been the emotional POV character (aside from that time he was in Sam’s usual spot as the Mytharc character during the MoC arc, and even then we often saw Dean’s emotional reactions more than Sam’s). So just by the structure of the narrative, we inherently understand Dean’s pov more than Sam’s.

It’s not a good thing or a bad thing, it just is. And because of that, the mirror characters tend to reflect Dean’s POV more than Sam’s. Dean also tends to bond with people more readily than Sam does, because that is his personality. You can see that really clearly in 2.18 (which I watched yesterday so it’s a fairly fresh example in my mind) and in 2.19 (which I just watched like 20 minutes ago, so also fresh in my mind). Heck I’m writing up notes on 2.19 now, and the thing I’ve still got saved to the clipboard is Sam’s quote to Dean:

Dean, does it … bother you at all, how easily you seem to fit in here?

And Dean’s like, no. It doesn’t bother him. He can fit in practically anywhere he wants to.

What’s the first thing we learn about Sam? He’s got a very solid idea of where he wants to fit in, and he’s never felt like he fit in in the hunting world. He wanted to go to Stanford and have a normal girlfriend and a normal life being normal. His entire narrative has been about getting dragged back into hunting, where he dragged his heels kicking and screaming back into the life.

It’s just who he is as a person.

But if you think Sam doesn’t have just as important of a bond with Mary or Bobby, then I don’t really think you’ve been paying attention. It might not be the same kind of bond that Dean has with them, but it’s no less important.

Saying it’s different doesn’t imply a value judgment here, either.

As to Charlie… well, why do you think the queer character has been more associated with Dean than Sam? Knowing that other characters serve as narrative mirrors for the main characters? It’s not difficult to understand that one.

Donna, who has self-image issues, is a tough-as-nails cop on the surface but who also is completely unashamed of her bubbly, fluffy sense of humor? Oh, and who deals with her emotional distress through a complicated relationship with food… She’s basically the G-rated girl version of Dean.

And Ketch. Really? Wtf? You really think his character “revolves around Dean?” He’s basically a dark mirror for Dean, in the way that we’re supposed to disassociate his character from Dean. This is the WORST incarnation of what Dean could’ve become… IF IT HADN’T BEEN FOR SAM showing Dean the shades of grey in the world…

Yes, Dean gets more of these narrative mirrors than Sam does, and yes he relates to these character differently than Sam does… but that’s because Sam has almost always been the character that the narrative happens TO, Dean’s the observational POV through which the audience processes our reactions.

It’s not a judgment about Sam vs Dean here. It’s literally the narrative structure of the show.

Problems with the Daughter of Evil Musical

@celestialily @marlonmajesty


-Everyone has incredibly weak voices and Allen’s actor simply cannot carry a song
-Hardly any of the characters spare the twins get proper introductions
-The music includes a lot of electric guitars and synthesizes, which so does not jive with the tone of the show
-The longer you look at the costumes the cheaper they look
-Ney, Chartette, and Mariam just kind of float around the story, never making an impact and never emotionally bonding with any of the other characters
-The Three Heroes are set up, but the plot doesn’t do anything with them
-Elluka is mentioned by name but does not play a role and is instead represented by a completely silent ensemble member in a hood
-All the songs last about a minute
-Minis is played as pretty much the polar opposite of his book character
-Germaine never comes across as strong, constantly screaming and crying even after she swears revenge on Riliane
-There’s a weird tangent with Josephine and the other horses right after Leonhart’s death scene that completely breaks the mood
-Michaela and Clarith are introduced 40 minutes in just as they’re being hired by Keel
-It seems as though Michaela and Clarith being in love is never brought up
-Michaela’s actress is playing her as an idiot and as such, it comes across like this is Mikulia we’re dealing with rather than Michaela
-Kyle just kind of shows up and I’m not sure if it’s ever mentioned he’s King of Marlon
-Kyle is played as comic relief
-KYLE IS PLAYED AS COMIC RELIEF
-Clarith’s actress constantly looks like she’s smiling and plays Clarith as kind of sassy
-There’s an out of nowhere song about the Very Amazing Spring Onion that someone makes Allen fall in love with Michaela
-The show is only an hour and a half. The Story of Evil. Is told in only 90 minutes. And most of it padding.
-Michaela is constantly talking about singing, but her actress is one of the worse singers in the cast
-Clarith dumps her entire backstory in a minute long aside
-No Gumillia, or Gast, or Yarera and Zusco, or Yukina, or Mikina, or Prim…
-Kyle has this weird guard guy who I don’t think was in the novel who’s just there to sword fight and give Kyle someone to bounce awkward jokes off of
-Riliane shows absolutely no emotion when told about Kyle’s rejection, but still orders the Green Hunting
-Michaela is randomly dragged away during the hunting by Allen without getting a chance to say goodbye to Clarith and it’s incredibly unclear what happened to her for the next twenty minutes
-Allen’s actor has a really bad screaming voice and wears these giant baggy pants that look ridiculous
-The hilt of Germaine’s sword is made of plastic
-Kyle randomly joins the revolution before Michaela is killed (maybe????) and treats it with no seriousness
-Michaela seems to go insane in the well, and her murder at the hands of Ney is executed so poorly I wouldn’t be surprised if the audience had no idea what happened
-Riliane’s actor spends the entire show just doing bitch face and little else
-Josephine sword fights with the revolutionaries and it’s stupid
-Chartette is not a revolutionary and instead slashes Germaine’s eyes in a fight
-Mariam shows up out of nowhere to have her fight with Chartette, but because they’re both had so little stage time it has no emotional impact
-I have no idea why Mariam and Chartette fight in this version because they were both battling Germaine beforehand
-Mariam wipes the floor with Germaine in a way that doesn’t so much make her look skilled as it does make Germaine look like a pussy
-Chartette fatally wounds Mariam before Ney slits her throat but we’re still supposed to think of Ney as the murderer
-Allen screams at Riliane for like two minutes about God knows what in the secret passage
-Riliane has no reaction when Allen tells her they’re twins
-Neither of them gets very emotional when Allen takes Rili’s place
-Allen has this big long monologue while bawling his eyes out right before he’s executed
-Riliane doesn’t seem to give a shit when Allen is executed
-AFTER KYLE TAKES OVER LUCIFENIA HE HAS GERMAINE KILLED
-HE DOESN’T JUST ORDER A WITCH HUNT
-WE LITERALLY SEE HIM KILL HER
-Kyle is played as a stupid asshole in this musical and it kind of pisses me off
-We never get an explanation as to why Ney was pulling so many strings as far as I can tell
-After Riliane sings Regret Message, she talks to Clarith who seems to immediately know who she really is and proceeds to LOCK RILIANE IN THE MONASTERY BEFORE SETTING IT ON FIRE
-Riliane walks out without a scratch on her and Clarith tries to stab her, only to be swatted away
-Riliane tells Clarith to bow before her and the musical ends. There is no hope for Lucifenia, Riliane never learns her lesson, and everyone’s dead without going through any kind development
-WHAT THE FUCK MUSICAL

Good Things About the Musical

-?????
-some of the songs were kind of okay when they actually tried something operatic instead of comedic
-they did a cool thing with the set where Riliane’s throne turns around to show the guillotine
-I think they listed off the Seven Sins at the beginning and I definitely heard Conchita’s name said during if
-…
-?????????

Bump In The Road

Reader x Dean


You swore loudly as the car hit the bump and something popped, the back tire made a skidding noise but the car didn’t move.


“No, not now… any time but now.” You whispered and glanced at the bundled-up baby in the back seat, his apple green eyes staring at you with a concerned curiosity.

You started dialling the few numbers you had, apparently New Year’s Eve, was the worst time of the year to be stranded in the middle of nowhere with a busted tire. Bobby always told you to keep a spare and Sammy always told you the same but he was spending the evening with his girlfriend and you could hardly ask either of them to help.
