dan has no time for the slow motion ‘dan vs phil’ meme

“all i know is that’s cute” if you close your eyes it’s easy to imagine dan saying that and pointing at phil

“don’t nose it” “i’ve nosed it”

“you’ve just got the tape on your nose, it’s going to have phil pore dust all over the tape now” “there’s no dust on my pores!” better comebacks phil better comebacks

they’ve just started the game and i already feel sorry for their neighbours

no wonder the dog wondered into their flat it probably thinks they’re in trouble all the bloody time

phil makes sure to tell us dan has hit 100

“everything’s fine” dan says after deafening more than half of his audience

phil is still very much in supportive bf mode

“i’m the freaking best at this and i was trying to be mildly entertaining” deafening me is not entertaining dan this is why i make you the asshole in fics

“you could do this as an olympic sport” see, supportive bf phil vocalises himself

strap yourselves in kids it’s like internet takeover never ended

dan fucked himself over oh no what a shame

pouty baby throws a tantrum, kills desk,,, innocent supportive bf laughs in the corner

look at those meaty arms as he raises them in victory

“well that was something, that was an experience” you’re telling me, phil, you’re telling me

“the game’s over, phil” sore loser dan doesn’t want to be here anymore

dan says hi to google overlord

they might do it again

“it’s not going to be good dan and phil singing, if that’s what you’re looking for” oh COME ON what do i have to do to get a singing game

naturally phil suggests toxic

“i’m so sorry to your ears” thanks dan but i think that would’ve been a good disclaimer to have at the beginning

RWBY & Queerbaiting

As a queer person I feel like I should adress this on this blog. 

Queerbaiting basically is when a show adds tension between two characters of the same gender or even hints a possible relationship so queer viewers will come and watch it, but in the end it’s just a joke and they never ever end up together. Hinting queer representation to get the views without delivering it. 

Now let’s look at RWBY.

There were hints for Bumblebee on the show, sure, but those were only hints. Not blatant queerbaiting like I’ve seen it in other shows. Outside of the show RT has been joking about Bumblebee for a while now. Now we have Bmblb on the Volume 4 soundtrack. Yeah, RT has definitely been bumblebeebaiting. 

Bumblebeebaiting is not queerbaiting. If they go for another couple like White Rose and it’s not just a cheap solution… well, it wasn’t queerbaiting then, because we actually got queer. Baiting a queer couple and giving the fans a different one might disappoint many fans, but it’s not queerbaiting. Bumblebeebaiting could be queerbaiting if we didn’t get any queer, but if we do, it’s not the same. 

But we can’t ignore that they have said several times that we will get queer characters. They did not just hint it, they confirmed it. So at this point not having any queer characters on the show wouldn’t be queerbaiting anymore, it would be blatantly lying to the fans, especially queer fans, which of course is even worse. Not having openly queer characters would be a shitty thing to do after telling the fans we would get them for years. 

I’m aware that we didn’t get any queer characters yet, but we also didn’t get any confirmation we wouldn’t get any ever. As long as we get the queer eventually (and not just a cheap solution like mentioning Tukson had a boyfriend) it’s still not queerbaiting. I know fans are pissed and I understand it, but if I get a good developed main character on screen couple (like Bumblebee, just saying) I won’t be mad about not casually dropping in some representation, because to be honest if I wrote the show, I wouldn’t have let any of the possible queer couples become canon yet.

Yeah, waiting is hard, but with RWBY we won’t get around waiting for many things. But it’s not the same as queerbaiting. Yet. 

Also I’m done with background queers, two women dancing in the background during the Vytal dance wouldn’t change a thing for me. It would probably mean a lot to other people and I’d appreciate RT doing that, but it’s not the representation I want. Not the one I need. It wouldn’t change anything for me.

how about andriel dating in secret?

Fair warning: I may have taken some liberties with this prompt

In which the media can never get a straight answer pun intended about Andreil

  • so Neil and Andrew are boyfriends and the team know it but they’re keeping the media and the fans in the dark because who needs that kind of scrutiny? Not Neil and Andrew
  • but honestly they wouldn’t care too much if the media found out and one day after the game Nicky’s talking to the press and they ask about the Minyard/Josten rivalry and Nicky just laughs it off and “says that’s just how they shows their affection.” And the media is like ???? Affection???? But Nicky is already talking a mile a minute and they are forced to move on from this little throw away comment
  • the media practically ignores it but the fans are speculating and this creates a little game within the team: how far can we push the Andreil before the media realises they’re a couple?
  • of course Renee goes to check with Neil and Andrew that it’s okay and Andrew is indifferent while Neil is mildly amused and so the game begins
  • now the media, as we all know, is an overwhelmingly heteronormative institution. But none of the foxes thought they could push it this far
  • they’re dropping hints in interviews and on social media, granted the hints are extremely vague and/or can often be perceived as jokes but still???
  • the fans are losing it over this shit because oh my god it’s so fucking obvious?
  • if the mainstream media uses the phrase “close friends” or some other along those lines one more time Neil’s eyes might actually drop out of his head from eye rolling
  • the game escalates, Andrew and Neil aren’t even not acting likea a couple anymore. They act like they normally would but if the press asks any of the foxes about the relationship they just go “Andrew hates Neil.” (like, duh) and move on.
  • in summation the Exy fandom™ definitely 100% ships Andreil but it’s never confirmed (at least not for a while)
Hope you like this mess V(^_^)V

anonymous asked:

"Kataang was not in the show’s DNA. It wasn’t even in Book 2′s DNA, LOL." Fuck whats wrong with ya'll did we watch the same series? Is every person who is Zutarian watched different version of the series? Should we make 'The Kataang Anthology' for books 2&3? I don't hate Zutara but please please stop using 'proves' from the original source.

I’m just going to get this troll’s other message out of the way so I can make a few points in the process. Well, I don’t know about you, anon, but when I watch a show I tend to do so in a critically analytical way. I not only observe the events that happen on-screen, but I pay attention to tone, subtext, and symbolism. All of the moments that hint at Kataang in Books 1 and 2 are only true if you observe things in a very surface-level manner. The Fortuneteller’s main theme is that fortunes don’t predict the future. Only you can decide your destiny. And The Cave of Two Lovers has Katara feeling like she has to kiss Aang, or they’ll be trapped. It’s a tease.

Why do you think images of Katara from both of those “Kataang” episodes in particular showed up when Aang was asked to “let Katara go”? The meaning of those episodes was not to hint at a Katara/Aang pairing (originally), but to purposely get Aang’s hopes up so that when he lets her go, there is more emotional resonance to it. There was no reason to create a subplot like that unless the original intention was to follow up on it, which never happened. It is a plot hole, and a rather glaring one at that. It is egregiously obvious how bad they messed it up, and how nonsensical it is, if you know anything about the kundalini and the chakras. The Katara/Aang romance is an insult to the Eastern philosophy that Avatar is inspired by and the resolution with Guru Pathik is quite simply some of the most butchered writing I have ever seen. It is an embarrassment.

And for that matter, so was the handling of Zuko’s character starting with the end of Book 2. Having him “go evil” just to have a plot twist (probably motivated by shipping) was an enormously foolish writing decision. And I don’t think’s it’s a coincidence that Mike DiMartino directed The Crossroads of Destiny; the only episode he directed in the entire series. Zuko opened his Crown Chakra, thus his consciousness had direct communion with Source/God, called Samadhi.

This only happens when your Heart Chakra is in a state of total purity and genuinely seeking Divine Truth. It is actually a rare and monumental achievement in a person’s spiritual development. Not many people experience Samadhi. Nobody, and I mean NOBODY who opens the Crown Chakra, and then experiences Samadhi, then becomes more immoral than they were before, like Zuko betraying his uncle. That is absolute, 100 percent, unadulterated nonsense. It is absolutely ridiculous beyond words that he acts worse after his spiritual awakening than he did as a villain. I cannot even begin to describe how monumentally stupid it is.

For the record, I do NOT think Zuko should have joined the Gaang in Book 2; he still needed to go back to the Fire Nation for additional character development. But the way it happened in canon is absurd. I’m sorry, but it is. I have written about a more logical way his return to the Fire Nation should have been handled that hardly changes the plot at all, and makes FAR more sense. But I have studied metaphysics, philosophy and spirituality for many years and I have to be completely honest here. Zuko’s characterization in the Book 2 finale and the first half of Book 3 (and in The Southern Raiders) is a complete and utter JOKE.

An absolute joke and a total insult to the Eastern philosophy of Avatar and I will not mince words. This REALLY irritates me because Samadhi is such a powerful and soul-changing experience that there are truly no words to describe it. It forever changes you as a person! Bryke butchered this concept so badly that it is laughable. It is a complete embarrassment and I am not exaggerating–insultingly bad. It is butchery of the highest order. Bryke are CLUELESS and need to open a book before they meddle with these concepts. It honestly pisses me off how little respect they had for the philosophy aspect.

So yeah, whatever. This is getting boring now. Kataang was NOT always going to be canon and I have proven this at length. I will debate anyone on this any time. Go ahead and post your “Kataang Anthology”. I am not the least bit concerned about pro-Kataang arguments, they are flimsy and hollow and have no basis in the actual metaphysics of the show. As for myself, I will continue to use proof from the original source, because Mike and Bryan effed up the story, and I am unhappy with that. It makes me bitter to see such an impressive artistic vision sabotaged. It was an excellent story and it deserved far better. /rant

anonymous asked:

Hello ^.^ So I was watching a H/L fan vid today and it included alot of moments from Nov-Feb and I was so shocked at everything that happened between that time. We were truly blessed. But it made me wonder, do you think something could have changed bts causing things to slow down? I know we've had good things happen, but nothing like how November was. Don't want to sound like a pessimist (now that I said that, I do) but it feels like we took a couple steps back. Hope all is well! X.

You know, I have definitely said similar things myself. But, I think to understand it, you kind have to take a step back. So, bare with me, as this will be long. Hopefully it’ll help with the bigger picture.

November was unprecedented given everything that we’d experienced in 2013, 2014, and 2015. It got the name “No Chill November” for a reason. Something happened. I don’t know if it was someone else exerting influence or something else, but something changed during those interviews. Then, right after “Not That Important” and “Don’t Knock It Til You Try It,” you get Harry sexuality rumors everywhere. I remember being shocked by just the number, as a lot of people really could have just taken the comments as a joke. But, they didn’t. They could have written them off, but they didn’t. That’s what is important. I’m very much of that opinion - what matters is not the individual action but the reaction. This was given the green light. Harry was offered the chance to deny them in the livestream, and about rumors, he even said there were some he quite likes. So, November was huge for Harry. It needed to be done - given how prevalent his reputation was prior to those comments. It was phenomenally well done. For Louis, I had high hopes. We had him in that Rainbow shirt, written about in The Independent, we had them sitting next to each other in the performance on the livestream (we had SUCH a meltdown over just the possibility, do you remember that? And now we get Harry and Louis next to each other ALL THE TIME.) and him refusing to deny rumors. I was so excited for the both of them at that time. And then you get BS 2.0, and everything kind of stopped. Then, Eleanor flew in, and Jay’s email was hacked. It just seemed like while Harry was making strides, Louis was stuck behind. I think that may have been necessary, because I don’t think they wanted Larry rumors to flare up at that time. The media narrative in November was Harry was not straight, and Louis was. And then Louis still got that dagger at the end of November. That wasn’t for us, that was for them. But, I think it shows that they were ready to win this time, and they weren’t going to give up.

December was a cooling off period. We had very, very light Nadine interactions. I mean, blink and you would missed it. I was even widely engaged in the fandom and I didn’t really notice it that much. It was nothing compared to what it could have been. You had the boys pictured next to each other at events a lot, too, which like I mentioned before, we hadn’t had in years. I remember everyone freaking out during the livestream when we saw those microphone stands because even the possibility was wild. But, then you have them sitting next to each other at talk shows, at award shows, standing together on the red carpet. Those seem small, but we hadn’t even gotten that in years. So, no, it wasn’t “Not That Important,” and there was Nadine, but it slowly keeping things at the same pace. Glacial, maybe, but it was there. The undertones were there if you paid attention, and we were.

In January, we got AIMH to beat Obama’s, and the articles about it were everywhere. You had the family subtly referencing it. Harry tweeted, “I study rainbows.” We also got a public presence for Louis in LA, and the first of that horribly staged late entrance. Then, Louis stayed in LA, and attended Harry’s party. So, again, minor hints and nudges. Then, of course, you had LAIRPORT. Which, you know, that was freaking monumental, and that’s where the shift in UA started. And then you had AIMH reach 1 million retweets. So, yeah, in February, it seemed like it was all systems go. In March, you had rumors of Louis picking Harry up at HeforShe. Louis seemed ecstatic on stage. An article is released where Louis answered a question with, “I’d probably snog all the guys to be honest.”

Then Zayn left the tour, and we got an Elounor breakup confirmation. I still get kind of surprised when I think about it. That was brilliantly well done. It was there, it got her name out, but no one really focused on it. Then, you get the Tour Rider leak. Now, whether or not that was to hint at Zayn not returning, I’m not sure. But, again, like I said, what is important is the reaction, and media sources jumped all over the rumors of H/L sharing a dressing room.

All of that, of course, was buried when Zayn left the band.

After that, though, Louis seemed to regain control of his social media. In April, he posted a video with Harry in it. Harry stripped a man on stage, for goodness sake. And then we start getting something we’ve never seen before.

I don’t think it’s any secret that Louis likes to go clubbing. He did it all the time, even if we didn’t see it. I do genuinely think he enjoys going to party. But, we got to see it this time. We got him papped nearly every single night, when he was next-to-never papped before that. When they really started to push him going home with women, Harry wore the blue bandana. But, I mean, really. We talk about how prevalent the Louis leaving with women rumors are, and they seemed so important and influential at the time. But, really. He left with women twice. The one with the girl outside the van doesn’t count because they were his friends, so that was just spun for the media. But, we got him leaving with the two blondes, and then the five girls. That was it, really. That’s nothing compared to what Harry went through. And the larger public frankly did not care. No one cares about who a boybander kisses if it’s not someone famous. They just don’t. Louis’ dick vine got more attention than any of his stunts with women. So, yeah, it gets his name in the media, it gets pictures out there without Eleanor in them. But, it was hardly reported on - if at all - in US media. What it did do was kind of quiet Larry speculation. But, even then, it was so obviously set up and then even denied!!!! So, yeah. It sucked to see it. It wasn’t fun for any of us. I was the embodiment of that Michael Scott “NOOOOO” video. But, I kind of think the general public went pressed the snooze button. The only thing that got attention was when they brought drugs into the picture. Because no one cares who a boybander sleeps with. They just don’t. We gave those articles hits.

Then, so far in May, we’ve got Louis publicly in LA. We’ve got them in the studio together. We’ve got articles talking about their “strained relationship.” But wait, I thought they weren’t even friends because of gay rumors??? I’m hoping they’ll address that on James’ show and say they’ve always been friends.

A lot of people are angry about Harry not publicly interacting with the band. And I’m frustrated with that, too. I was frustrated with those strained relationship articles because I was like how is this good for band unity? But, I really think they want Larry speculation quieted for right now. I also don’t think Harry wants the attention right now, and God knows he deserves a break. They’re going to continue building Louis’ image so that he can have a reputation and a name outside of Harry Styles which is vital for his success post-1D. If you don’t put a stop to H/L rumors, if you don’t keep Harry away from this, it’s always just going to be Harry-and-Louis. Louis needs to be able to be just Louis to the public. It needs to be Posh and Becks, not Posh and Posh’s boyfriend. Harry gets a break, Louis gets to build his image. They’ll build an empire together later, but Louis needs to work on his piece first.

So, for the rest of the break, we may see hints of H/L, like we did in December. I think they’ll continue to let the media be Louis-focused right now. On tour, I think they’ll try and change the fandom’s perceptions of H/L. Because the fandom isn’t ready to be told they were lied to and manipulated. They need to come around to support H/L as much as they can - even as friends - on their own. I think they’ll do that on tour, since the interactions there are mostly for us. If you just let them be organic with each other, I don’t think you’ll have any problem swaying the fandom into supporting them, since they’ve always had an amazing friendship and relationship. I mean, if I was pulling the strings here, that’s how I would do it.

So, all in all, this is very carefully done, and they have to control this carefully. I think it’s hard to watch, and I sure as hell don’t agree with what they’re doing all the time, but I can see the strategy even when it’s not necessarily the way I’d do it. I think this is a better PR push than anything we’ve seen before. We see things as a clear line to the finish, but it’s not that way. It’s not step forward and step back, there’s just turns and curves in the road.

Trust them. They know better than we do.

anonymous asked:

Do you believe the story could be real? I mean, H&L maybe had a fall out. And Louis did something stupid, that's why there isn't a comment yet, how to explain something you didn't want in the first place, and doesn't do your image any good? maybe this is the reason Harry is totaly silent on IG and twitter, we don't get any hints like we used to, they took out " Strong" which is supposed to be their song etc. I hate the way they handle this, but i also can't believe this is some stunt, it goes to

I do not believe for a second this has any ounce of truth or validity to it. No one can get their stories straight -journalistic inconsistencies across the board means that people are getting different stories from different places or just pulling stuff out of their ass- and people who are worried about “hints” from Harry are forgetting that his other half has given us plenty. 

Let’s suspend reality for five seconds and say that Louis cheated on Harry with a woman and got her pregnant. (I cannot believe I just typed that sentence). If they’ve known for a month now (I can’t remember what story they were going with last time I checked), that means that the shows in Horsens, Oslo, Gothenburg, and Helsinki happened after Louis -and presumably Harry and the rest of the band- found out he had impregnated a rando. (And a woman at that! Hello!) Something tells me that the bandmate you “don’t fly with” all of the time would be easy not to fly with if he had just cheated on you with a woman and knocked her up. And yet. Sweden and Lairport 2.0 definitely happened. Among countless other things between those shows, Sweden (Gothenburg) especially. 

People are going to believe what they want to believe and draw conclusions as they will. My conclusion is that this is a stunt. To “no comment” something for almost a week and have radio silence from an alleged baby daddy is not how you handle a legitimate pregnancy in public relations. If it’s legitimate, you do one of a few things: you pay for an abortion (sorry, it’s true), you pay the woman to quietly go away (and in Brianna’s case, that would NOT have been difficult since NO ONE KNEW HER UNTIL NOW), or you prepare and spin it. The only -only- reason that this should happen is if the child is going to be a visible part of Louis’ life in the future. Then, in that case, you would spin it differently than they are now. There would be confirmation from reps, paps showing affectionate or at the very least FRIENDLY meet-ups and encounters, congratulations (and not joking congratulations from everyone but Kevin Jonas) from family, band members, their team, and the public. You don’t handle this and promote it in the press as some scandal of an irresponsible kid who didn’t know how to wrap it up if you give one shit about your client’s long-term image maintenance. The ONLY way they’re allowing this to happen and allowing this detriment/hit to be taken is because they know they’ve got something that can rehab that image quickly. 

So no. I don’t buy it for a second.

anonymous asked:

I don't know if you are accepting requests, but I think you are one of the best Rucas fanfic writers and I have one. Riley and Lucas are celebrating their ten-year dating anniversary by going back to the ski lodge, since it is where their relationship began. Lucas proposes on the same couch where they had their talk 10 years before.

Oh my gosh thank you so much! And yes, I’m always taking requests!! Here you go, I hope you like it!! <3 

As Riley stepped into the cabin at Mount Sun Lodge, a flood of memories hit her as she took in the interior décor of the room. Everything looked just as it did ten years ago and she couldn’t help but scoff in amazement at the amount of time that had passed since they had last been here. 

“What is it?” Lucas wanted to know, as he appeared behind her in the doorway, carrying their luggage. They were only staying for three nights, but by the way Riley had packed, you would have thought they were staying for three weeks.

“It’s like stepping into a time machine,” Riley made her way over to the bay window and delicately ran her hand over the fabric on one of the pillows. 

“I know, it feels like yesterday, doesn’t it?” Lucas joined her at the window, placing a hand on her shoulder and rubbing it up and down gently. 

“It practically was,” Riley was mesmerized by everything - the cabin, the memories, the feelings that this cabin brought back for her. She took a deep breath and leaned into Lucas as he played with a strand of her hair. 

“A lot has happened since then. A lot of things have changed,” Lucas pointed out, and Riley spun around to face him. 

“And a lot hasn’t,” Riley leaned in close, and Lucas kissed her forehead. 

“Come on, we need to get unpacked because I have something special planned tonight,” Lucas untangled himself from Riley’s arms and headed for the stairs with their suitcases. 

“Oh really, like what?” Riley pressed, raising her eyebrows and hurrying over to the staircase to catch up with him. 

“Nope, it’s a surprise!” 

“Come on Lucas, just one hint? It doesn’t even have to be a full hint, just a very vague baby hint. A hint-let, if you will,” Riley begged, pouting her lips and batting her eyelashes. 

“No, no, no put that lip away. You’re going to find out in like two hours, you just need to be patient. Now, go get ready!” Lucas reached the top of the stairs, as he pulled the luggage behind him.

“You’re the worst!” Riley called up to him from the bottom of the staircase. 

“You love me,” he answered, matter-of-factly. 

“There’s no proof of that!”

“Just ask the walls, I’ll bet they have some stories that say otherwise!” 

With that, Lucas rounded the corner to enter one of the bedrooms and Riley was left at the foot of the stairs, wondering what on earth Lucas could possibly have planned for tonight. 

“I can’t believe you made me dinner,” Riley rested her head on Lucas’ shoulder as they sat by the fire on the couch in the living room. 

“Hey, I do have some skills you know,” Lucas joked as he drew tiny circles with his finger on the palm of Riley’s hand. 

“Well, surprisingly enough, cooking is one of them,” Riley poked him in the side with her elbow and he smiled in response. “It was delicious, Lucas. You even remembered that I liked ketchup on my macaroni and cheese. Now that’s a good boyfriend.”

“Yeah, that’s still disgusting to me by the way,” Lucas scrunched up his nose in disgust and Riley lightly smacked his shoulder. 

“Hey, don’t knock it till’ you’ve tried it!”

“You know what isn’t disgusting that we both love?” Lucas asked, and Riley sprang up from the couch in response. 

“If it’s what I think it is, you will definitely win the best boyfriend award,” Riley announced excitedly. 

Lucas reached behind the couch to pull out a bowl of popcorn and a huge cardboard box full of various kinds of chocolate. 

“So, what’s the verdict? Did I win?” 

“Uh, yes and then some! I think you have about every flavor of chocolate ever created in here,” Riley went to grab the box from Lucas’ hands, but he pulled it back before she could touch it. Riley looked at Lucas quizzically, and he placed the box between them on the couch.

“Do you remember the last conversation we had here?” Lucas placed his hand on top of Riley’s, and she smiled in response. 

“How could I forget? It was how this whole thing started.” 

“We sat here on this same couch, just like this,” Lucas turned in his seat to face Riley straight on. “I remember being so frustrated that I could never find the right way to tell you how I felt about you. The timing was always off. Life got in the way. Things were… complicated. But I always knew in the back of my mind that we would end up together, just like this someday. When we came here on that trip all those years ago – there was something about this place that brought out the bravery within in me that helped me tell you how I felt. Kind of like now,” Lucas picked up the box of chocolates and placed them in his lap. 

“Riley, for the longest time you’ve been my best friend, in every way possible. I remember telling you all those years ago, that talking to you was one of my favorite things to do in the world. I’m so lucky to say that is still true. I’m lucky to say that everything I felt for you back then, everything I told you on this couch, has only grown since then,” Lucas reached into the box of chocolates and Riley looked at him questioningly. He took a deep breath, and removed his hand to reveal that he was clutching a smaller velvet box in his fist. “It would be a privilege to get the chance to talk to you, grow with you, and take on the rest of what the world has to offer us for the rest of our lives – together.” Lucas slowly opened the velvet box, and Riley’s breath caught in her throat at the sight of the ring. 

“Will you marry me?” 

Suddenly, Riley was back in that time machine again – back to 10 years ago when they were kids who had their whole lives ahead of them. She was mesmerized by the magic of the moment and the memories and the way Lucas was looking at her. She was mesmerized by how the diamond sparkled by the light of the fire. And she was mesmerized by her love for him. 

“Yes,” Riley breathed, wiping a tear from her cheek. “Yes, of course I’ll marry you, Lucas.” 

Lucas let out a sigh of relief and removed the ring from the box. With a shaky hand, he placed the ring on her finger. 

“I love you,” Riley wrapped her arms around him and Lucas buried his face in her hair. 

“I love you too, Riley Matthews. Always.”

Lucas took it all in – the fire, the couch, the snow-covered mountains outside the window. It was exactly how it had been ten years ago. But one thing had changed; he had figured out who he was, who he wanted to be, and he knew without a doubt that he wanted to be that person with Riley Matthews by his side, for the rest of their lives.

hey, i'm sorry if you've answered this before, but i was wondering if you think that the writers are going to officially make destiel canon or come out and say that dean is bi? or do you think that's all just a pipe dream and it's never going to actually happen? sometimes i get really discouraged and i don't want to watch supernatural because i feel like the writers are only going to keep queerbaiting us.

Well, I think it will probably be not quite that black and white. What I believe the question will be is *how explicitly textual* Destiel is going to be. I have no doubt that Dean and Cas are absolutely 100% each other’s endgame, but how openly romantic is it going to be? Will it be subtle enough that people can still argue they’re only best friends, or will there be no doubt that they’re in love? That’s what I’m not sure about.

I don’t believe the writers are queerbaiting us. I believe they are telling a story. I think that queerbaiting would be mocking us, leading us on with occasional hints, not literally weaving their story with countless tropes, hints, callbacks, references, and indications through set design, music choice, editing, direction… I mean, on the one hand there are BIG parts of the story that make no sense if Destiel isn’t real, and on the other, there are so many constant tiny, subtle efforts going into the background, the mentions, the set, the costumes, the editing - from the fact that Cas found his grace in Don Quixote, a story about a delusional would-be hero madly in love with someone who doesn’t love him back (this being how Metatron views Cas) to how a shot of Cas faded into Dean’s hand reaching for his beer with the label “a taste of heaven”. These things aren’t accidents. They make those beer labels on purpose, they pick their literary and pop culture references, their props, their colors, their costumes, their music, very very much on purpose. When Dean stops mentioning women and starts making his statements gender-neutral, they know what they’re doing. When it’s openly asked what Dean and Cas want in their lives, they know what they’re doing.

There’s too much for it to be nothing. There’s too much effort and thought and work for it to be a joke, a tease, or anything but an important, intentional part of the story they’re telling. What kind of stupid fuck would waste that kind of time and energy in the making of something if it didn’t mean something? Why would people intentionally antagonize, mislead, and mock the fans their livelihood depends on, ESPECIALLY when the major media has already taken notice? Big websites have already said that Supernatural needs to make it canon already, so if the show ends without them doing SOMETHING? There is going to be blood.

In short, there is no chance this is going nowhere. The question is exactly how far it’s going to go, and only time is going to tell that.
