hes still in the cage

i think one of the reasons that i like cal so much is that he has ambitions and goals and dreams outside of mare

Darling age of 20, 
you are honey sweet
and dangerously tender.
You are not a kid anymore, 
you are bold enough to
wear high heels,
you are adventurous
enough to let God in
your heart.
And your past wakes up
at night and watches
you sleep and it forgives you.
You have good hands
and less friends.
You bathe in oils
and clean the house.
You are about to
get married
and you keep your phone
conversations long while
you keep
the towel wrapped around
your head.
Your poetry is not just poetry
but statements ,
marriage vows,
Darling age of 20,
you haven’t always
been modest,
you haven’t always been
thoughtful with him.
You are still a cage of tigers.
And when he loves
you good,
really good,
you are a mermaid
with beautiful long legs. 
You have an alluring 
voice and it consumes him. 
It makes him want to marry you.
You are not a scandal anymore
in this town, 
and you’d have
given all your ages,
all your youth to feel like you feel now.
Darling age of 20,
you are still exquisite 17,
and romantic 18,
and curious 19
but you are his 20 now.
You are a decade older.
You are a revolutionary era.
You are the queen
coming to
the throne. 
And if they
don’t adore you anymore,
you will close your empire on them. 
Dear darling of 20, 
you’ve never been more 
in love than you are now.

(sam like physically reining himself in when dean’s laughing because the wave of relief is almost overwhelming, he feels like he’s gonna choke as he swallows the lump in his throat, and like he gets it, it’s funny, haha because imagine if it hadn’t worked, gosh imagine that, sam wouldn’t have anybody at all even the thin pretence of an anchor to tie him down to reality, just him and his vacant brother in a sea of post it notes and the continual uncertainty about whether he’s dreaming or waking or still in the goddamn cage, no foundation stone to balance on and christ knows things can feel precarious enough as it is)

(he wakes in the middle of the night gasping for air, heaving in scraping breaths like he’s drowning)

I know Maven is still an awful person but damn, Victoria really has crafted an incredible, three-dimensional villain. I loved seeing into his headspace during Kings Cage and what led him into his downward spiral. All his scenes were so intriguing. I’m really impressed.

The sweatiest of revenges.

TL;DR - Guys with the love of my life. Acts like a jealous child towards me. I pour my boot sweat all over him.

There’s this guy at the mine I work at. He Knows who I am and I know who he is. We know each other this way because he is dating the woman I previously did. A woman I still adore and miss more than I would care to admit. This man and I have never spoken but he’s still a real dick to me. He runs the cage at the mine ( super long elevator that brings us underground ) Every time our shifts line up he never lets me on the cage. Slams the door in my face or leaves me underground on purpose. Why ? Because he knows I’m her ex and I still feel for her. That’s petty in itself but it’s escalated to the point where if it’s his shift I know I’ll be the last man up from the hell I work in all day long and it pisses me off. It’s bad enough I lost the woman of my dreams.. Today I took an overtime shift and managed to make it on the last cage ( surprise, surprise.. ) Now this cage has three decks ( boxes stacked on top of each other ) and they have holes in them so there’s less wind resistance on the cage. I just worked in a part of the mine where the temps are around 130 degrees with 100% humidity. You sweat. A LOT. My boots were full to the top with sweat. It’s gross and terrible but that’s life in that mine. I go to get on the bottom deck of the cage but this asshole makes me cram into the middle so he can ride the bottom alone. That’s a dick move. You’re jammed in there so tight you can’t even take a breath. Everyone smells. Everyone’s greasy. It’s a shit show for the 5 min ride to surface. So i’m pissed. Real pissed. That’s when it hits me. I lift my leg. Turn my boot forwards and just let the sweat drain to the bottom deck. I can hear him freaking out down there. Thinks someone poured water on him. ( guys will do that if they hate the guys in the deck below ) This was no water. It took a couple seconds but over the roar of the cage traveling at 1500 FPM I hear this guy start dry heaving. He’s swearing and banging around down there like an angry little tornado. We hit surface and he gets off the cage and immediately leave the shaft room to change all angry and upset. Smiled the whole ride home. That’ll learn yah, you greasy little bastard.

Sorry for the formatting.

Omikron (Part 59)

The entire video is of Matt laying on the ground as black goo begins to leak from his eyes and mouth. Pat can be seen in the background, wearing a paper mask of David Cage and slowly climbing a stairway to where a noose hangs. The noose turns into a snake and the snake falls onto Woolie who simply stares up at the sky. More snakes begin to wrap around him, eventually he’s covered in the snakes as we see him drown.

We cut to Pat, still wearing the Cage mask as he starts to choke Matt who continues to spew forth black goo from his mouth. An audible mesh can be heard as this goes on. If you record the audio, play it backwars and speed it up x10 you can hear a distorted voice say “you could have stopped this. At any time you could have ended this.”

Woolie can be seen carving words into a wall. All they say are “The platform doesn’t work. Push the button. Reset the game. The platform doesn’t work. Push the button. Reset the game.” it continues on like this for several rooms, becoming more and more mangled before eventually we see Woolie laying on the ground, the stone he used to carve the words is soaked in blood and his eyes have been gouged out, assumedly by the very stone.

Eventually we see pat try to pull the cage mask off his face ecept it won’t come off. His tongue lashes out furiously at air that he seems unable to take in. Matt begins to thrash as spasm as now the goo starts to erupt from his chest. It splatters against the wall as we see Pat fall to the ground gasping one last breath before turning his face over and inhaling the goop that has filled the room entirely.

We slowly pan away and fade to black… we then cut to footage of Omikron as we hear a melancholic voice say “okay we fixed the bug… we are now… 85% of the way through…”


Quickly Adam raised to his feet, stumbling slightly, his breath heavy. “W-where am I?” his asked, eyes squinting to adjust to the light as he looked around. “Earth” you smirked, nodding lightly. “That’s not possible” he breathed shaking his head denying your words. “Does this look like Lucifer’s cage?” you asked, gesturing around to the open field you were stood in. “No, but it could always be a dream or worse I’ve gone even more insane and am hallucinating” he said managing to still hold some humour after all his time in the cage.

I will never be over Sam Winchester.

Because even though the narrative of the last season or so has been ignoring the Cage trauma he’s likely still wrestling with, he can go into a room knowing he’s going to face Lucifer.

He can brace the doors open long enough for everyone else to get out (in crucifixion pose, interestingly, considering Dean usually gets the Christ imagery) but not long enough to escape himself.

I love how far the show has come in trying to save everyone, and I love that Sam perpetually tries to uphold that standard.

You know what just occurred to me? In Civil War when Zemo starts reciting Bucky's trigger words and Bucky angrily begs him to stop? The way he just breaks through the metal restraints that were supposed to restrain him while he was under the custody of the CIA... before he was so compliant, so doesn't that mean he had every intention of cooperating with them? And yet they still caged him like an animal 😔 I'm sorry if I'm the last to realize this... I may or may not be an idiot lol

I have a lot of feelings with Bucky being put in that damn restraint

Analysis of Blake Shelton’s Every Time I Hear That Song music video

This video is visually so powerfull and it shows the story and how Blake felt during his last few months married to Miranda. I think it’s important to point out that the video happens in a construction site because that’s what a marriage is supposed to be, a solid construction over the years. 

So they’re both there but Blake (most of the time) is trapped in the rain, which can be understood as a cage of some sort. A place he can’t escape. 

He tries so hard to escape and reach out for her, because he needs her. Even though she keeps on telling him to come over, seductively, he can’t. 

It feels like they both really want each other but she is more “controlling"than him and even though he really doesn’t seem to mind (at least not a lot) he still can’t get out of the rain (the cage). It’s like he’s starting to let go and realize that the controlling is over. He wants to be set free. That this toxic relationship is not working anymore. 

She is portrayed as a free spirit, someone who likes to have fun and be a little controlling and he seems to understand that. Maybe because their story started out that way, them following each other around; them reaching out but never something seriosu, and even thought they tried having something serious, a healthy and based in trust relationship never really happened. The fun always came before the trust, the real meaning of being married. 

He watches her from inside the "cage” and when he gets out he sees her, sometimes. But when he walks up to her, she disappears.

Maybe because they spent so many days (or months) apart that they forget who they really were together. They used to see each other so little because neither of them (probably) never really tred for more. Maybe because they didn’t feel like if and seeing them once in a while worked just fine. But a marriage can’t work just fine. 

She takes the neckless off somewhere in the middle of the video, but he lets it drop on the floor when he arrives at the construction site, which means the car scene where she yanks it off is a flashback that he has just after she plays with the rain (his cage) and he clearly touches his head as in I have a headache this is too much and then remembers a moment in a car where she stormed off mad at him, before taking off the neckless. This piece of jewelry clearly means more to him than to her. He probably got it for her and she never really treasured it as he had wanted her to do. Dropping the neckless to me just really means goodbye, like “I’m done, I can’t do this anymore. So I am throwing something that I got for you, because I loved you and now you’re mad and you take it off because you don’t want me anymore." 

So he drops it as in a "it’s over. I’m not coming back”. When you drop something on the ground is because you’re so fed up you can’t take it anymore.

You can still love them, you can still think about them when a song comes on but you’re slowly going to walk away from that toxic relationship it took you so long to realize it had been over for a while. 

This video is so well planned out, filmed and edited that it makes you understand Blake’s feelings the last few months he was married perfectly well. At the end he completely escapes the rain (cage) but she’s still up there on the pipes above him (he’s on the ground).

Because she still feels powerful, like she can still can control him and feels she’s better than him in all ways possible. That’s why she’s up there and he’s on the ground walking away. She’s higher than him. Not because she’s in reality more powerful, no, but she feels that way. She knows she has had and will always have some power over him, at least for a while. 

But he walks away. Because he cannot take it anymore. Because feeling like this is destroying him and he wants to LIVE and BREATH and he cannot do that under the rain. 

It’s also important to point that the last shot is a close up of Blake. A close up, in cinema is used to capture the character’s emotions, to help the viewers see what she/he is thinking. In this case, the video is a reflection of Blake’s feelings the last few months he was married, that’s why the end shot is a close up of him. 

In my opinion, the video speaks waaay more than the song does, and I love the song, it’s seriously on my top 3 songs on If I’m Honest. The song might not be as emotional as the video, it might not reflect the pain and the loniless as the video, but I think the combination of both of them works well. 

Meanwhile, in the cage:


-Lucifer and Michael, probably, at some point.
