AAAA YOU LIKE THE SARAH JANE ADVENTURES?? I love that series!! What were your favourite parts?
Oh man SJA is SO GOOD, I adore Sarah Jane and Clyde and Rani (and their families!) and pretty much everyone?? I have a real soft spot for Clyde and stories that centre a lot on him (“The Mark of the Berserker” and “The Curse of Clyde Langer” are two of my favourite episodes) but there are so many good stories and characters that I love in the show. I didn’t watch SJA until a few years after I’d watched/caught up with the new episodes of DW available at the time (while Matt was still the Doctor I believe) and seeing Ten turn up in “The Wedding of Sarah Jane Smith” and having them reunited again with Sarah Jane — and meeting companions of her own! — gave me such a nice, warm feeling.
And so we make it to the episode that changed everything. There’s a lot I could say but I’ll keep it short by only pointing out a couple things. The first is that even though this is a Yuuri-centric gifset, there ended up being a fairly large Victor presence in this one (the man just creeps into your life and is a permanent fixture before you even notice!). The second is that you’ll notice both times Yuuri charges off the ice to meet Victor, he’s met with a surprise. The natures of both surprises are a bit different though. ;)
Hey, Tink, could you make a list of the most Destiel(y) episodes?
Ooh, thats a kind of hard one because some of the best Destiel episodes don’t even have Cas in them (I’m thinking ones that expose canon Destiel as romantic, like Bloodlines or ones that expose Dean’s pining for Cas like Rock and a Hard Place or The Memory Remains…).
OK, so my top Destiel episodes with Dean and Cas IN them are:
4x07 - the UST and Cas starting to fall
6x20 - Obviously.
7x17 - Dean getting Cas back then protecting Cas from the truth even though he broke Sam because he wants to spare him pain and all of season 7 reminding us of Karen / Bobby is my jam
8x07 -Cas rejecting Deanbecause he has low self worth and doesn’t understand his own feelings
9x06 - Dean rejecting Casin 9x03 because he always puts Sam first before love interests and his own lifelong happiness (thank you Bad Boys), Cas beingheartbroken so the Rit Zein Angel comes after him just after Dean arrives on the scene, Cas not answering the question when he’s asked if he wants to live as an Angel or a Human, and the camera cuts to Dean, Dean longingly staring at Cas THREE TIMES, first as he arrives, as he goes off for his ‘date’ and forgetting to actually leave because he is so wistful, nearly asking Cas not to go in but holding back, because it’s Dean, that’s what he does, he doesn’t deserve this, he just literally rejected Cas himself, it’s not his place to hold him back now, he should let him go and then finally at the end… “always the adios…”
9x18 - I mean, its a meta episode, his name is meta-tron for a reason. He exposes that Cas is in love with “humanity”, please. Then this is nicely reminded for us by Amara in season 11 when she says that DEAN “represents that for (her)”. Thanks hun, you’re doing a great job exposing the Destiel, please keep going, oh ok wait, you did, for the whole of the season, then brought Mary back to continue the job, you’re a star ;)
11x18 - this is one of my overall favourite top top top Destiel episodes, I think maybe top two with 9x06. Dean exposing himself to danger from Lucifer and Amara to try and save Cas, Lucifer TAUNTING DEAN because if it! Amara USING it! Cas freaking lighting up when he realises he saw Dean and trusting his judgement… argh. Lucifer and Amara noting Dean’s distress and Amara then using Cas to get to Dean…. cos you know, the bro bond is much stronger than God’s sister :p
12x10 - Dean is Cas’ weakness. Dean is willing to let himself get hurt and or / potentially killed by Ishim to protect Cas - Cas is also therefore a weakness for Dean.
12x12 - Cas loves Dean and everyone knows exactly what his double clarification meant. Dean is angry at himself for causing Cas to be lying here dying. “Let’s go home” ARGH.
12x19 - Dean trying to tell Cas but he just isn’t ready yet, so he just gives him a freaking mixtape and acts like an angry spouse then a worried beyond belief lover throughout the whole episode and I’m so here for it.
Leading to 12x22 and 12x23 as the ultimate “why can’t we catch a break” moment as Dean just learns to accept the side of him that has feelings for Cas and he goes and dies on him and Dean ends up in a pretty catatonic unresponsive state and we have THAT to rest on for the whole summer.
Help me, this ship is canonically sailing full swing and I cannot pretend it’s not there right in front of me being shoved in my face, with it’s glorious billowing sails of love…
I just wanted to, um, say a few things, before I lose you forever. ‘Cause I owe you a lot… but most of all, I owe you the truth. My name is Mon-El. I’m the former Prince of Daxam. And I was a spoiled, useless person, but I didn’t know. Until I met you. And I love being a hero because it means I get to spend every single day by your side. And I love the way that you’re honest to a fault. And the way that you fight for those you care for. And I love you. With everything that I have, I… I love you.
“If you could order a crime as one orders a dinner, what would you choose?”
“A very simple crime. A crime with no complications. A crime of quiet domestic life… very unimpassioned — very intime… Supposing, that four people sit down to play bridge and one, the odd man out, sits in a chair by the fire. At the end of the evening the man by the fire is found dead. One of the four, while he is dummy, has gone over and killed him, and intent on the play of the hand, the other three have not noticed. Ah, there would be a crime for you! Which of the four was it?” - Agatha Christie, The ABC Murders
