My apologies for the lack of squirrels lately. I recently moved and am still in the process of getting to know the squirrels in my area so photos are harder to come by. Here is a casual squirrelly side lean.
an: My dad called me and my siblings “squirrels” when we were spazzy. Have more of this fluffy au <3 <3
Ben was silent until Sam was settled in the backseat of his black sedan, backpack sitting on the middle seat.
He wasn’t one to beat around the bush. “Are you hitting on your teacher for me?”
The boy looked aghast when Ben glanced at him through the rearview mirror, pulling out of the school parking lot.
“I wouldn’t ever hit Miss Rey,” he answered.
Ben scowled, his tone stern. “Sam.”
His son squirmed in the back, gaze flitting between him and the view outside his window.
“Okay, maybe a little bit, but–”
Ben sighed. “No excuses, Sam. Miss Rey is your teacher, it would be inappropriate for anything to happen between us.”
Sam moaned. “But Dad, she’s pretty and nice and good at hugging–”
“No, Sam. No buts.”
“You have a butt too.”
Ben couldn’t help cracking a grin when Sam snickered in the backseat. He made a right turn at the light.
As they drove past the park, Sam begged to play on the swings. Ben was feeling indulgent, despite the little mishap with Miss Rey. Perhaps because of it.
For a moment he wondered if he should reach out to Sam’s mother; his son clearly longed for a maternal figure. He knew it was best not to, not when it would end in Sam being disappointed. Perhaps they should go visit his mother during the next holiday weekend instead.
“So?” Sam slid out of the backseat. “What did Miss Rey say? Did she want to go to dinner?”
Ben rolled his eyes dramatically. The boy was practically buzzing with excited energy. “None of your beeswax.”
Sam shot him a sly grin before darting across the grass, dashing for the open swing set, hollering at the top of his lungs, “Dad and Miss Rey, sitting in a tree, K-I-S-S–”
“Come back here, you squirrel!” Ben called after him, breaking into a run, laughing the whole way.
Ella had a vet visit this morning for routine shots. She behaves well, doesn’t snap, but paces frantically until it’s over. This dog takes her shots way better than I do. The doctor said Ella could lose a pound or so. That surprised me because Ella is so active and doesn’t over eat.
Oliver and Carson have appointments on other dates. Bringing three dogs at one time is too hectic. The vet is surely going to tell me Oliver could stand to lose 10 or more pounds. He doesn’t eat a lot but he’s much less active than Ella.
When Ella sees a squirrel she’ll chase it up a tree then run circles at the base of the tree until I tell her to stop. Oliver will walk over to the tree (Hey, Ella already chased it so I don’t need to). Then he’ll sit patiently (Hey, running in circles isn’t going to make the squirrel come down here). He’s like that guy at the office who knows how to get by with the minimum amount of work and effort.
You rubbed your hand along Gabe’s arm, “Come on, Gabe. It Won’t be that bad.”
“Are you serious Y/N? Dinner with not only Luci himself but God, and to top it off, the King of Hell himself and the two large dumbasses and my little brother. I know this won’t turn out well.”
“Just because the last meal you went to involved you getting stabbed doesn’t mean this one will be any worse,” you tried to give a reassuring grin which just caused Gabriel to sigh.
Reluctantly he trudged along as the golden doors in front of the both of you swung open.
Before you was the most brilliant room you have ever seen before. There was a long, white table in the center of the room which was faceted with gold crowning and engravings in the floor along with a large painting of the archangels on the ceiling and a stained glass mosaic of God himself behind a large, curvey, white chair with gold enhancements.
The person sitting in this chair was the guy you never expected to meet, the runaway who decided to never show up except at supper apparently. It was God. Or for a better understanding, Chuck. And next to him on his left were two open seats for Gabe and yourself; to his right were Castiel, Dean, Sam (who was uncomfortable by Crowley sitting next to him). At the opposite end of the table was none other than Lucifer, smirking at you and Gabe who just walked in, evidently late. On either side of him were other demons or angels you didn’t recognize.
Slowly you and Gabe took your seats. You noticed Sam and Dean glaring at Luci as though they wanted to kill him which, let’s be real, they obviously did but were most likely bound not to.
“Well look at all of us. The whole family got back together,” Lucifer said with a smirk.
“Sam and I sure as hell ain’t your family, you son of a bitch.” Dean easily spat from his lips.
“Oh, Dean, I think Sam could argue against that,” he cooed.
Gabe leaned over to you and whispered in your ear, “This was a bad idea.” Gently your tender hands traveled up and down his knee and thigh, calming him down and slightly exciting him.
Castiel rolled his eyes, “For heaven’s sake, Gabriel, you know you must act professionally in the presence of Father. If you wanted to behave like a child, pardon yourself and your significant other outside.”
Gabe cleared his throat as his flicked his wrist and sent Cas slightly springing up from his chair and back down again.
“Enough,” came the voice of God.
Lucifer tsked tsked, “Well now, we all better get quiet for our gracious Father who art in Heaven,” as he brought his hands together in a bad impression of praying.
From the corner of your eyes you saw Sam whispering to Dean and rubbing his face with his hands. Silently you agreed with Sam on whatever he was feeling, this was very uncomfortable now that you were actually here.
“Oh come on Moose, lighten up, I thought you and Squirrel were great friends with the Devil.”
A glare from Sam was all Crowley needed to chuckle and shut his mouth, knowing he did his job.
“This is going to be a long meal,” Gabe sighed as he brought his head into his hands.
It has been your third season with the Supernatural cast, as always, you were meant to be a guest star that ended up being part of the main cast back in season 6. You played a graceless angel turned hunter. Before being cast in, you were a full time singer, going on tours all around the world,and being a model, you’re quite known actually. So ever since you joined, Rob and Rich would always make you sing on cons. With them, on your own, or with Jensen.
Hello Rod! I'll be visiting Vienna soon, so what things should I go see first? :)
Oh, so you choose to come and visit what is considered to be among the most beautiful places in the world, as well as the best city in the whole fucking planet to live in. That’s so nice of you~
I’m feeling kind and I’ll give you a quick tour. You can pay me later and ja, you’re welcome~
If you want to visit Vienna, first thing first: get yourself a Vienna Card (or Vienna Pass). Ask for it at the station or in any public place: they’ll either have it or tell you where you can buy one. Don’t be shy, we, as austrians, are friendly and 99% of us perfectly understand and speak English. The card allows you to use public transport as much as you wish without having to pay the ticket. And I guarantee you’ll b using it A FUCKING LOT. Vienna is huge and there are a ton of things to see. Luckily for you, our public transport is on time, clean, very efficient and you can get anywhere using even only the subway (which I recommend and don’t worry: it’s safe even late at night, you must have some damn bad luck to have any kind of troubles). Look around you for some “U” signs: that stands for “U-Bahn”, the subway. They’re everywhere. Also, the Vienna Card comes with a map of the city, a booklet with a lot of suggestions of what to see, tickets to have a discount in many shops and restaurants and it grants you a discount on most tickets for museums and various attractions. It’s a must-have.
Now you’re ready to explore. As your first step, travel to the Stephansdom, Vienna’s cathedral and one of the tallest churches in the world, There’s a (well, there are two) subway exit right in front of it. It’s not only breaththaking, but you’ll find yourself in Stephansplatz, the perfect centre of Vienna. Take your time and have a long, relaxing walk in the surroundings, getting used to them: it’ll help you to understand the structure of the city and you won’t get lost. There are a lot of shops around here, you can find bot tourist stuff but, if you search a bit better, you’ll find yourself in one of the most expensive and high-class areas, with fine restaurants and renowned brands shops (such as Swarowski, Armani, Prada).
Next, take a walk along the Ringstraße (Ring Road). You can also rent a bike or take the tram if you’re lazy… but hell, walking will give you a so much better experience. It’s the most beautiful boulevard in the world, and it surrounds the oldest historical city centre. A lot of the things you probably want to see are located along the road. It’s fucking unique, it has been called the “Lord of the ring boulevards” for a reason, and you’ll understand why as soon as you’ll set foot on it.
Your first big place to visit must ABSOLUTELY be Schönbrunn Palace. The U-Bahn will take you straight in front of it. It was the summer residence of the Habsburg family, pretty serious stuff here. Don’t be fooled, there’s not only the palace to see here. Of course, you can visit it, and it’s damn gorgeous, but don’t forget the huge park surrounding it. It’s a public park, you won’t have to pay anything to visit it. A lot of people come here to do some jogging and relax together. Also… squirrels! Ah, I love those black little bastards.
If you’re interested in nature, think about visiting the Palmenhaus, a huge greenhouse featuring plants from all over the planet (also among the largest botanical exhibits of its kind in the world!). On the opposite side of the park you’ll find the Wüstenhaus, a desert botanical exhibit.
A must see is the Tiergarten, Schonbrunn’s zoo. It’s the oldest zoo in the world, and it’s a-fucking-mazing. A few hours won’t be enough to see everything here, if you’re curious about animals and want to be amazed, you’ll spend even more than a whole morning here. You’ll be also able to visit an aquarium and a rainforest house, where animals are free to roam (don’t try to pet the sloths, those son of a bitch are cute as fuck but also bite hard. Also, don’t be afraid of the bats. They fly around you but they couldn’t care less about harming you).
While you are around Schonbrunn you can also take a look at the Wagenburgmuseum, a collection of carriages and vehicles used by the imperial household of the Austrian Empire, or have a coffee at the Gloriette, a building on the top of a hill: relax and enjoy you coffee, cake and a spectacular vista of Vienna.
If you feel you NEED to see some more damn animals, get back along the Ringstasse and walk to the Hofburg Palace, the former imperial residence.
Here you can visit the Winterreitschule (Winter Riding School), where our best Lipizzan horses of the Spanische Hofreitschule (Spanish Riding School) perform. Of course you have to be interested in dressage, or you’ll be quickly bored to death.
While you’re visiting the palace, if you want to jump back in history, you can visit the Sisi museum, a wing dedicated to our beloved and most famous empress.
For more culture, it’s back once again on the Ringstrasse (you’ll be walking a fucking lot up and down it), now we’re heading toward Maria-Theresien-Platz.
Here you’ll find the Naturhistorisches Museum, also known as the NHMW. This is the biggest museum of all Austria, and among the largest natural history museums of the whole world. You can see incredible stuff here, touch real dinosaurs bones and see the famous Venus of Willendorf. Don’t miss the opportunity.
Right in front of the museum of natural history, there’s the Kunsthistorisches Museum, (Museum of Art History", also often referred to as the “Museum of Fine Arts”), the largest art museum in the country. It’s impossible to describe all the damn stuff you’ll find there: if you like art, it’s another must-see.
While you’re here, you can cross the road and take a look at the Schmetterlinghaus. Also known as the “Imperial butterfly house), housed within a stunning palm house, built during the Art Nouveu period at the beginning of the last century. No, it’s not a creepy exhibit of sad, dead butterflies pinned down on wooden boards: you’ll find yourself in a tropical environment where hundreds of butterflies are free to roam. Don’t miss the chance to feel like a fucking Disney princess.
Not too far from here you can also find the Albertina, one of the largest and most important print rooms in the world with approximately 65,000 drawings and approximately 1 million old master prints, as well as more modern graphic works, photographs and architectural drawings.
If you want even MORE art stuff (goddamn, REALLY?), hop on the subway and head to Schloss Belvedere (Belvedere Castle). It consists of two two Baroque palaces (the Upper and Lower Belvedere), the Orangery, and the Palace Stables. First, take your time to visit the gardens, it’s free. And -do I have to repeat myself again?- amazing.
What you really want to see is the Österreichische Galerie Belvedere. It houses the greatest collection of Austrian art dating from the Middle Ages to the present day. But what you’re REALLY here for is the Klimt collection in the Upper Belvedere.
To complete your cultural tour (food for the brain, I guess), head back toward Stephansplatz: in this area search for the Haus der Musik (House of Music). It’s something both modern and traditional, and it won’t disappoint you. You’ll be amazed by a range of hi-tech interactive and multimedia presentations which will introduce you to the world of music, from the earliest human use of instruments to the music of the present day. Yes, it’s another museum, but it’s also damn funny.
Time to relax. You’re a lucky boy or girl, since I’ve brought you near the Café Sacher. It’s a fine place where you can experience a taste of the traditional Viennese coffee-house atmosphere, and try a slice of our legendary Sachertorte. I hope you like chocolate, because it’s a chocolate cake, with a thin layer of apricot jam in the middle and covered in.. well, more goddamn delicious chocolate.
Right in front of the Café you’ll find the Wiener Staatsoper (Vienna State Opera). If you want to spend an evening at the theater this is the place for your. A great, grand building which will provide you some grand music and performances.
On the other hand, if you prefer to relax in a more easy-going way, head toward the Donau (the Danube river). Remember, the U-Bahn will be your best friend, hop on it for another ride. In this area you’ll find the Prater, a large public park. You’ll find a lot of people jogging here, in a very clean and relaxed environment. There’s also a planetariumm a stadium and another damn museum (ja, ANOTHER ONE).
While you’re here, take a look at the Wurstelprater, our amusement park, and have a wonderful look at the city from the top of the Riesenrad, our famous Ferris wheel!
Oh, and don’t forget: in the park you can also pay a visit to Republic of Kugelmugel! You can’t get TOO close, but when else will you be able to see a micronation like this?
But, if you want to see something TRULY amazing, get on the U-Bahn again, because you’re very close to the Donauturm (Danube Tower). It’s 252 metres (827 ft) tall, located near the north bank of the Danube River, and you can get on top oh it with a high-speed elevator. There are also two rotating restaurants up there and believe me: at night the view on Vienna is incredible. I’ll never get tired of it.
Last thing: food. I’m sure you won’t have any problems with it. Street food is very common here, from wurst to ramen, and it’s not expensive. Just look around you and you’ll find restaurants of all kind: French, Italian, Indian, Greek, Mexican, Chinese, Japanese, Hungarian, Australian… you name it. You’ll fin Irish pubs, Chinese all-you-can-eat, American fast-food (mostly Burger King and MC Donald’s), as well as Starbucks.
But, really, try our stuff, it’s delicious. You’ll find bakery shops at every corner and sweets and chocolate will cross your way at every damn step. If you like sweet stuff you’ll have to do your best not to gain a fuck ton of weight, ‘cause temptations are everywhere (ESPECIALLY CHOCOLATE).
For a sweet treat and a wide variety of coffee, try Aida, our franchise chain of espresso bar and pastry shops.
And, for the evening, have a taste of traditional austrian food and beer at 7 Stern Bräu, one of only few true breweries in Vienna. Its specialities are renowned throughout the city. Try their Schnitzel, Käsespätzle, Viennese potato soup, grilled meat and strudel. You won’t be disappointed.
…there’s so so much more to see, especially if you’re coming in December. The whole city goes crazy, I mean FUCKING CRAZY for Christmas, and you’ll have to take your time to navigate around infinite Christmas markets. We take this shit pretty seriously. But around this time of the year Vienna is even more beautiful, to the point of being something hard to describe or believe. You’ll be welcomed with tons of Christmas ornaments and light, snow and carriages pulled by horses at every corner.
There are so many more things to do and see, but I’ll leave to you the pleasure to discover them for yourself as you walk around the city. Try to find the Mexikoplatz (Mexico Square), the Secessionsgebäude (Secession Building) and its golden sphere, the huge flea market or the Haus des Meeres (House of Sea), the public aquarium. Enjoy exploring.
What else to say? Pick your sweet poison, keep our city clean, remember to bring warm clothes (it can be damn cold here in winter) and have a nice stay, it’ll be an experience you won’t easily forget.
[ …bonus: sneaky little Mun being curious and amazed about everything he sees around him on his first day in Vienna. ]
Based off this request: i was wondering if you can do a fluff one? Where crowley is interested in the reader and she is in love with him but thinks he prefers…. thinner….women. but he proves her wrong. You can keep the sarcasm that is Crowley. Thanks:)
The boys had left you alone at the motel. They’d offered for
you to go with them, but you were weary from travel and hunts. You’d much
rather stay back and gorge yourself on vending machine snacks and reality TV.
The knock at the door startled you. You quickly grabbed your
gun and held it at your side as you peered out the peephole.
What you saw there made your heart flutter and shudder at
the same time.
You slowly opened the door, leaving the chain on. “Crowley.
What do you want?”
“Hello, darling,” the King of Hell crooned at you. “I’ve got
some information for Moose and Squirrel. May I come in?”
“They’re not here.” You silently cursed yourself. Should you
really have told him that?
“Hm. Well, mind if I come in and wait for them? It’s a long
journey from Hell and I’d rather not make it twice in one day.”
You looked him up and down. He seemed unarmed, but really,
what sort of physical weapon did the King of Hell need? But he’d never harmed
you in any way….
You felt the weight of the gun in your hand. You knew you
were more than capable of protecting yourself. Sam and Dean had made sure to
leave behind plenty of weapons.
“Fine,” you said, shutting the door and removing the chain.
When you opened it back up, Crowley smiled at you.
“Thanks, sweetheart,” he said, walking in past you. The
nickname made your heart flutter again, but you tried not to think too much of
it. Surely he called all women that. It didn’t make you special.
You tried to play it cool as you stalked past him and
flopped on the bed. The crinkle of cellophane made you wince and you were
suddenly aware of just how many snack wrappers littered the room. Sure, some of
them were from Dean, but the ones on the bed were all from you.
You felt, more than noticed, Crowley looking at you. You
quickly swept all the wrappers on to the floor, as if that reversed your having
eaten what had been in them. “Sorry,” you mumbled, unsure what exactly you were
You turned your attention back to the television and tried
not to jump out of your skin when Crowley sat next to you. The King of Hell
commandeered whatever space he wanted and somehow managed to look regal even
while sitting on the obnoxiously loud floral printed quilt.
“What are you watching?”
“Trashy TV,” you said, unsure what exactly you’d stumbled
upon. Hopefully it wasn’t anything too embarrassing.
“Ah,” Crowley said after a moment. “I recognize her. I
believe one of my crossroad demons made a deal with her—got her this show.
Shame she’ll be losing her soul in…” You saw him check his watch. “Two and a
You looked back at the screen. The woman he was talking
about was someone you were envious of—perfect hair, perfect teeth, perky
breasts, taught stomach, tiny waist and hips—tiny everything except breasts,
really. You self-consciously pulled your knees up towards you and wrapped your
arms around them.
You and the King of Hell watched the television for a bit,
in silence. Once or twice you thought you saw him glance over at you. During
the commercial, he finally spoke again.
“You know, there’s something that I’ve always wondered about
you, darling. Which of these boys do you plan on taking as your Prince
You scoffed. “Neither. And I find it insulting that you
assume I’m going to fall in love with one of them, just because I hunt with
them. I’m stronger than that, thank you.”
“Oh, I know you’re strong, love. I just thought surely with
their charming smiles and alluring personalities…”
“I’m not looking for Prince Charming.”
“Oh,” Crowley said, a strange expression on his face. “Are
“No,” you said with the slightest roll of your eyes. “I’m
not looking for Prince Charming, because I don’t need to be whisked off my feet
and saved. And besides, why be a princess when you could be a queen?”
Your heart leapt to your throat, realizing what you’d said.
‘No, no, no,’ you thought to yourself. ‘Please don’t let him–’
Crowley let out a laugh at that. “Very good,” he said, a
smile on his face. There was a strange look in his eye, which made you turn
away from him. “You know, I do believe I’ve got an opening for you…”
“Please,” you said. “You don’t want me. You’d probably much
rather have someone like her,” you pointed at the screen, where the woman from
before was back. “She’s more fit to be a queen.”
Crowley noticed the emphasis you put on the word ‘fit’. “Love,
I’d much rather have a pretty little thing like you beside me than that pile of
silicone and diet pills.”
You weren’t sure which word shocked you more, ‘pretty’ or
‘little’. You dared take another look at Crowley and all you saw in his eyes
was sincerity. You remained frozen in place as the King of Hell gently slid his
hand into one of yours.
“Besides,” he said in a low voice. “‘Y/N, Queen of Hell’ does have a nice ring to it.”
You looked down at your clasped hands, trying to hide the
smile creeping onto your face.
“You don’t have to give me an answer immediately,” Crowley
said, drawing your attention to his face. “But I do hope you’ll give me the
chance to show you how wonderful it would be.”
You bit your lip. “I’d like that,” you said in a voice barely
louder than a whisper.
