Dean’s POV

I’m looking down at Y/N, her eyes and voice deadly serious as she touches my face.  I can’t help it; I lean into her hand as she speaks.  I’m shocked as the unbelievable words fall from her mouth.

I have a son?

—-

Dean moves towards the house.

“No,” you put yourself in his path.  “He has no idea about you.  All he knows is that I was on my own when I had him.”

Dean looks down at you with eyes full of sorrow and a glimmer of hope, but he says nothing.

“You weren’t in the picture and it wasn’t like I could call you.”

“I know,” Dean says finding his voice.

Dean’s gaze is fixed on the porch.  On your son.  On his son.  After a long pause he looks down at you.

“Can I meet him?”

“Yes, but not tonight.  I have to talk to him about it first.  Then you can, ok?”

“OK.”

That night you tell Dylan about his father.  The tears and anger you’re expecting.  You still aren’t sure how Dylan is processing the revelation that he’s going to meet his father.  His initial anger quickly becomes curiosity; he has so many questions but you think it best to let Dean answer them. The next day you call Dean inviting him over for dinner. At five your doorbell rings and when you open the door there he stands with flowers in his hands and a nervous smile on his face.

“You don’t like the Bellas, Eva Marie, Cameron, and Rosa Mendes, so you aren’t a supporter of women’s wrestling.”

There is so much wrong with this that I can’t believe some people still stand by these words, fighting to the grave over the internet because of someone’s personal liking and/or disliking.

This blog, and many others, has and welcomes raw opinions. I am not going to give up my valid points because someone hides behind black sunglasses and calls me a, and I quote, “shemale lover.” I welcome your ideas, your opinions, and I expect you welcome mine in the process. To quote an old teacher of mine, “Argument makes both you and the person you are arguing with much smarter and open-minded.”

I’d like to make this clear: I respect every woman and man to enter a wrestling ring because they put their bodies on the line for our personal entertainment. Just because I don’t like Nikki Bella doesn’t mean I dislike Stephanie Nicole Garcia-Colace. I can hate Nikki’s character like many hate Roman Reigns’ (or, to quote many, his lack thereof one) whilst respecting Joe Anoa'i nevertheless.

“You don’t like the Bellas, Eva Marie, Cameron, and Rosa Mendes, so you aren’t a supporter of women’s wrestling. You only like the 4 shemales, and cannot appreciate a real woman.”

I don’t mean to sound like a brat, but these people, who deem themselves as warriors of the Bella Army, are part of the reason I could have a disliking for the Bellas. As many refer to them as “dickriders” of the twins, if you won’t let me get a word in with a valid point, the person(s) you’re defending could be thought to reflect your close-minded nature.

Let’s replace this argument: “You don’t like apples, pears, strawberries, bananas, and kumquats, but you like oranges, kiwi, mangoes, lemons, tangerines, and pineapples. Ugh. You don’t like real fruit, you exotic-tasting food lover!”

This comparison really sheds light on our quall: perhaps you will realize how ridiculous this sounds. Just because I don’t like some fruit doesn’t mean I don’t like fruit: some tastes just aren’t appealing to me for whatever reason. I still love fruit, just not all fruit.

To address the arguably ruder part of that anonymous comment, I like other wrestlers than the “four shemales.” Naomi, Natalya, Maryse, Carmella, Nia, Dana, Peyton, Billie, Asuka, Ember, and Mickie (throwing in ‘alumni’ - Maria Kanellis, Trish Stratus, Eve Torres, AJ Lee, Beth Phoenix, Melina, Lita, Victoria) are just naming a few. All of these women aren’t Horsewomen, yet I still like them.

*All I know is that these women (and the 4HW as well) don’t rely on reality TV to make themselves stars.* You know as well as I do that the Bellas were lost causes until the 2011-2012 time period, when Nikki began dating Cena, the face of the company, and Brie met Daniel Bryan, arguably one of the fans’ all-time favorites, up there with Cena, Austin, and the Rock.

Brie and Nikki fought Kelly Kelly, Tamina Snuka, Alicia Fox, Beth Phoenix, and weren’t portrayed as the heroes they arguably are now. 2011 brought Brie’s first and only WWE title reign, which she held for only 70 days. April 2012 brought a 6-day reign for Nikki Bella, and only until November 2014 did she get her record-setting title reign. 

During the time period of 2012 and 2014, in 2013, the first episode of Total Divas was broadcasted, which seemed to almost “revolve” around Nikki and Cena’s relationship. The show was successful, and a little over a year later, in November of 2014, Nikki entered the longest Divas’ title reign. With the fact that Nikki having a title reign brought even more popularity to Total Divas, and with the fact that Nikki and Brie were dating the company’s top stars, you can’t help but wonder if their “Hollywood success” could’ve aided in creative’s choice to have Nikki break AJ’s record. Though they didn’t depart from the company, you could see that Hollywood offered more for them than a wrestling ring ever would. 

Speaking of AJ’s record, it’s evident that Nikki broke that record to erase AJ’s impacts on the divas’ division. WWE wanted to write Lee off as quickly as possible because of their real life bad blood with Punk and AJ. Though they knew that Nikki defended the title not all that often (most of her reign fell in the Divas’ Revolution, which was led by the warring state of the 3 teams of Team Bella, Team B.A.D., and Team PCB), and with the knowledge of female impact on sports everywhere, having Nikki quickly erase one of AJ’s arguably “most notable” records and lose the title 6 days into her now record-setting reign was the best option. 

I don’t mean to generalize, but there are things the Bella Army will catechize people like Paige, AJ Lee, or any of the Horsewomen for, but let the Bellas’ same mistakes slide-especially when it comes to promos. Paige bringing up Charlotte’s dead brother (which, I know, is absolutely horrid) is horrible, but the Bellas insulting Kharma’s weight, pregnancy, and looks is “okay” because it’s “all scripted.” AJ dropping the truth about how reality TV saved people like Cameron and Eva is misogynistic, but the Bellas dissing AJ and saying she’s only “famous” because she “rode the coattails of male superstars” is perfectly dandy. This is extremely hypocritical, but once someone dares to point it out, we’re attacked with hate comments hiding behind sunglasses or shady posts where you’ve tagged us. 

Sure, Nikki and Brie have improved over time. They’ve developed character, ring, and mic skills. (Might I add, it took them…hmm, 2008 to around 2014…six years to do so.) Yet with all of the dickriders on here, it seems to me that many see these women, who though are well-rounded because of their variety of moves, who lacked something that made them pop out of the mold of Diva, as greatest of all times. Fabulous Moolah? Nooooo. Lita? No way. Trish Stratus? Not even close. Mickie?  Hell no. Jazz? Nope. Jacqueline? Not at all. Chyna? No. On and on. Sure, they’re good; but they are not GREAT, they are not as wonderful as you guys view them as. Sure, you may like them, as I, for an example, like Becky. But I will always admit that there are people who were and are better. Many people of the Bella Army will throw out the accomplishments of other women who came before to make the Bellas look like wrestling goddesses. 

I’ve touched on this a bit before, and I will acknowledge it again: though they seemed to be focused on reality TV, they still stayed in the business when times were tough regarding their ring personas. Yet, unlike someone like AJ, though they weren’t on the top of the division, they still got their paycheck and didn’t have to face backstage hatred because of their significant others. While Nikki and Brie taped Total Divas, AJ dealt with the hatred of their (I believe) stepfather, John Laurinaitis. So whilst they still continued their wrestling careers, other than the fact they weren’t given a lot of screen time, they didn’t face anything otherwise “difficult.” 

Sure, they spawned the “#GiveDivasAChance” movement because of their 30-second match with Emma & Paige. But do any of you guys, the ones that worship the Bellas for “giving divas a chance,” pay ownage to Emma and Paige and for their work on the division? Or do you turn them away because the Bellas beat them so quickly? If you “give divas a chance,” why won’t you give Emma and Paige a chance? 

You might oblige with acknowledging Emma and Paige, but many of the Bella Army can’t stand (for the lives of them) the 4HW of the WWE. There’s something about Bayley, Becky, Charlotte, and Sasha’s overall excellence in wrestling that really ticks over the Bella Army. Their well-roundedness in all forms of wrestling (power, submission, technical, and high-flying) is something you dismiss. You get all riled up that the Horsewomen are seen as the saviors of the division and that some people like them and not the Bellas. You get all, mind my “slang,” triggered over the fact they’re given the accolades and everyone else but Trish and Lita are thrown out. What about your precious Bellas? What about their accomplishments in a division where all accomplishments are scripted (mind for accomplishments of excellence with character, mic, and ring skill [this point was made to point out championships])? What about the fact they’ve just recently improved yet still trail the Four Horsewomen, Naomi, Natalya, Paige, Asuka, Ember Moon, many more women in the division? 

“Name something the Horsewomen can do that the Bellas can’t!!!!” Okay, I’ll admit that the advantages of the 4HW could be unfair because there’s 4 of them and 2 Bellas. I’ll just focus on individuals for now.

Bayley has an overall connection to the younger audience that Brie has attempted to do with her using Daniel’s “yes” chant and some of his moves. Bayley is unique in her “bleeding babyface” ways, yet Brie and Nikki have blurred the lines between face and heel all too frequently, whether intentionally or unintentionally.

Becky has escaped the women’s wrestler “mold” that has been established the past couple of years. She brings a very unique feel to the ring, and the steampunk attire and “bleeding babyface” ways is something that is near Bayley’s, but not as sucking up to the crowd and more following of the rules, even if it puts you at a severe disadvantage. Nikki and Brie have used Twin Magic unfairly to win matches, and they fit almost perfectly into the Diva-esque mold.

Charlotte outwrestles Nikki, Brie, and almost every woman on the roster. I believe the only ones that can come close are Asuka, Ember Moon, Becky, Sasha, Bayley, and Mickie (as well as Lita, Trish, Beth, and more in their prime times). No matter how much they improve, I highly doubt the Bellas will be able to reach the wrestling skill heights Charlotte has.

And now for Sasha - for Sasha has, is, and will get louder pops than Brie or Nikki. There’s something about her character, the Legit Boss, that will make fans chant “we want Sasha” in many women’s segments on Raw. Nikki gets louder pops than Brie, yes, but she doesn’t come close to Sasha’s crowd eruption.

“The Bellas didn’t have a platform in the indies or in NXT to help improve. They grew (and took longer in doing so) because they had to do it while still on the main roster.” While I can see what this point is trying to say, if the Bellas did truly want to develop fully and become the next Beth Phoenixes of the division, they would enroll in extra acting and wrestling classes. Did they? Nope. “Their improvements came earlier than 2014!!!” someone will bring up. Did you guys suddenly forget about the horror of the Bella feud in 2014? Did you guys tune out Brie’s horrid acting and fake crying? Did you not see Nikki’s fails at covering up her emotions, or her promo now known as the “Growing Up Bella” meme? Or did you turn a blind eye on these horrors so you could complain about Paige and AJ Lee some more?

“Why do you care that the Bellas have a reality show or that they walk the red carpets? It’s their business, after all!” It is their business, and I applaud them for sitting on the brim of Hollywood and the WWE for this long of a period of time. Yet they should always focus on their wrestling careers and improving in the ring before getting famous for reality TV. If they want to be reality and Hollywood stars so bad, they can leave the WWE because it’s holding them back. To me, it seems they appreciate Hollywood more than the wrestling ring based on the fact they’re consistently focusing on more Total Divas/Bellas episodes over furthering Nikki’s wrestling career.

“Everyone can’t get past their looks, so they aren’t given a proper chance! They still suffer from a negative stigma because of AJ’s pipebombshell on the Total Divas cast!” I have gotten past their looks: sure, they’re beautiful, but so is Carmella and Nia, and they aren’t being pushed and/or being booked properly. Plus, they’ve been given a lot of “proper chances.” Nikki’s the longest reigning Divas’ champion, for all sakes! Someone who isn’t given “proper chances” is someone like Carmella.

And if the bombshell still impacts their viewing, I don’t know what to say. It’s been what, three or four years now? Natalya and Naomi aren’t viewed like that anymore because they broke free of the Diva-esque vibe by showcasing their in-ring skills. The bombshell just provides extra information and boost to an argument: if AJ Lee said something that can help you prove your point, use it to your advantage, folks.

“The Four Horsewomen should have to scratch and claw like how the Bellas had to for eight years of their careers!” Hold up, hold up. First, the Bellas got their first title reigns in 2011 and 2012, which was three to four years into their careers. Secondly, them having to wait for three years for a title reign isn’t that bad, considering at the time they were very poor on the mic and in the ring. They had major appeal because of the fact they were twins and even have admitted that they were originally hired because of that signature “twin appeal.” Waiting that amount of time for a title whilst not having skills to back up a good reign wasn’t “scratching” or “clawing.”

You know who did scratch and claw? The Four Horsewomen. Bayley and Sasha worked in the independents (alongside men) as Davina Rose and Mercedes V: them going to the WWE was their whole scratching and clawing. Overcoming the odds with childhood dreams to make it to the top is always a good story. Looking to John Cena and Eddie Guerrero as inspiration, Bayley and Sasha eventually made it to the top.

I know more about Becky’s story, though: she worked as Rebecca Knox, left her family at fifteen to learn how to wrestle (alongside men) after being inspired by Lita, went to the UK, Canada, a lot of Europe, and Japan along the way, broke her head open in a match in Germany, dealt with marijuana and alcohol abuse, attended clown school, and eventually made it to the WWE.

And for Charlotte: she never thought she would wrestle and was always into other types of sports until her brother, her inspiration, Reid, unfortunately died in 2013. From there, she got the boost to make it to the top (with flair hahaha I’m so funny).

I will give the Bellas this: they scratched and clawed to try to make our viewings of them disappear. Yet was the world ever conspiring against them? At the time, they had fame and fortune; just doubt on our part. “But Nikki’s neck injury!” I will give Nikki that. She is passionate enough to come back to the business that hurt her, a lot like how Becky did, and that is one of many things I can respect about Stephanie Nicole Garcia-Colace.

There is one last thing I’d like to address: “You only dislike the Bellas because they’re not fully white.” PHEWWWW. Do not play the racism card. Please. I still like Bayley, Naomi, Asuka, Ember Moon, Sasha Banks, AJ Lee, and Nia Jax despite them being “not fully white.” That’s a piss-poor excuse.

To add as a “disclaimer:” I am completely open with argument and differing opinion. I’d love to hear what you have to say, as long as it’s not hateful from behind a pair of sunglasses.

He doesn’t hear the shatter of the crystal as it falls to the ground. He only sees the wine spill out from broken glass, soaking into the rug, spreading in every direction like ink being blown on paper through a straw.

It’s a bright, sparkling red in this lighting. He thinks of fresh blood gliding down skin, seeping into the collars of shirts and the front of blouses, bright red darkening as it seeps through every woven thread.

The whiter the blouse, the better the contrast.

It’s art.

VK is for VKontakte!

@deerkang I did the thing!

Pairing: RusAme, AmeRus.

Synopsis: America likes to let the world know the goings on in his life, including his relationship. When Russia mentions he himself prefers VK (Russian Facebook), America insists on joining him. And so Russia is subjected to pictures both candid and compromising. Romance, humor, with a surprising bit of fluff at the end.

VK is for VKontakte!

Russia supposed if he wanted some normalcy he’d have pursued a relationship with someone else. Though, that wasn’t even a fair statement, considering they were the eternal physical manifestations of the habits, history, and culture of entire nations. So, normal was not something to be had anyway. He therefore supposed among their kind, there was probably a hierarchy of normalcy, a ranking of some sort; some consider he, Ivan Braginsky, to be very low in that ranking, for some reason. This was quite ironic, considering how low he ranked many of them. But, to each their own.

Being in a relationship with America came with many twists and turns; Alfred would say the same about being with Russia. In this way, they complimented each other nicely. Both spoken and innate boundaries were laid out so that they may avoid as many awkward incidents as possible; there were mishaps, to be sure, but at the end of the day they still gravitated back toward each other and worked things out.

But it seemed there were always new things to learn and experiment with between the two.

“Hey, Russia, you have a Facebook, right?” America asked as he adjusted his position against the other’s chest, fiddling with his phone while the other read. When Russia’s only response was a distracted hum, America retaliated with a firm nudge.

“Hmm?” Russia intoned again, glancing away from his book. “Da, I do. I am not on it much though.”

“I can tell.” America had punched in his name and was scanning all the information viewable to the public. In truth, it showed a decent amount of activity, though it was about half as much as America’s. “I’m sending a relationship request,” America informed him, updating his status (up until now, it had merely read “in a relationship,” with no designated partner).

With a sigh, Russia fully lowered his book. After some awkward fidgeting, he had successfully retracted his phone from his pocket. Checking the website, he saw America had indeed sent such a request.

Confirmed.

Immediately, anyone online viewing his and America’s pages began liking the update, some even writing messages; though, most of these amounted to smiling faces or single words such as “Congratz.” Russia smiled down at the bright screen; there was something heartwarming about seeing the simple confirmation that he and America were indeed a couple. In some far off recess of his mind, Russia wondered why he had not done this sooner.

Apparently, they were thinking along the same lines. “We should’ve done this when we first started going out!” he crowed, also grinning at his Facebook page, thumb tapping away as he liked every comment on his update.

The rumble of Russia’s deep chuckle was felt against America’s back as the nation behind him smiled even more. “Well, Fedya, the internet was not in existence when we commenced a relationship.” That earned him a cheeky grin. “I suppose,” Russia mused slowly, considering his words. “I enjoy being online, but I have my own website like this I can use.”

cycoviers  asked:

Hey, I was wondering what exactly are the songs from Re-Act and Re-mind (and that houkago shuuen game and unlucky final days)? there's so many new songs there and i don't get how they chronologically fit into the series ._.

Hiya you can see all of the songs listed at the CD/Songs masterpost.

Now about the songs and how they fit into the series…well the songs don’t actually provide much plot in the first place? Only the first four songs with PVs hinted at a plot…the others not so much. They’re more of “character songs” so you can get the feel of the character’s thoughts and/or personality.

Some songs may hint about events but other than that, all plot related knowledge is from the novels, SO for anyone trying to figure out the plot from the songs…I can only really say…good luck with that ._.

If you want to talk about the plot in general, I’ll just say that since the introduction of the Film Club, previous knowledge might not apply anymore… Haha the plot is quite in a cat box hmm?

(Just in case you didn’t know, the events of the Film Club happened before the Occult Club)

At the very least I can try to explain some of the albums

Re:Houkago was the “draft version” of ShuuenPro. It was only a doujin (amateur) release and meant to stand on it’s own. I should note it has it’s own conclusion. If anyone is curious about it -> see under the cut at the bottom.

Re:Write is the official release version of ShuuenPro and was rewritten *coughs*rewrite*coughs* to expand the story even further. The conclusion that was written for Re:Houkago no longer stands with the introduction of the Film Club.

Unlucky -Final Days- was just a fun Beach AU thing I think? It doesn’t really contribute much to canon plot I believe, especially since it was a doujin release.

Re:Mind is just more about the Film Club kids and how they are like. Any “events” are more about the circumstance of things.

Re:act has two new songs (Shougeki React and Nagareru Ni Hoshi Negau), covers of the main character songs by various seiyuu, a few new instrumental tracks, and drama tracks.

Edit: Sorry I originally said that there were no new songs but I was wrong, that was a oversight on part, my bad!!

I hear that the drama tracks have some new information but um we have yet to receive the CDs because we’re cheapos and chose the cheapest shipping option so we probably won’t get it till this week maybe.

I hope answered everything properly!


If you want to know something more specific feel free to ask but some things we might not be able to answer because there simply isn’t enough information to give a clear answer and we’d rather not spread our non-confirmed theories around.

Also I should mention, I don’t know as much about the Film Club as I could because half the group isn’t particularly fond of them or too busy to translate and I have to rely on their translations in order to know stuff (I’m the only main member that doesn’t know Japanese hahaha ;∀;). I’ll try my best to answer any questions about them nevertheless and ask the others to answer if they can!

Cockles-ish things at Denvercon:

*Misha replied Dean’s b-day is his fave holiday (when asked by a fan and also ‘national pizza day’ lol) 😂

*His fave ‘yoga’ position is 69 (hmm, cockles?) 🙈

*So after the pie incident with Jared ages ago. A fan asked about it and Misha said that Jensen went to check on him (aww). And probably after making sure he was fine, he lied Misha again lol (probably less roughly though). 😅

*Misha said how Jensen often apologizes and takes care of him (probably after pranks), but also betrays him 😂

*At the J2 panel, the boys talked about how Misha wrote an email praising everyone for the success of episode 4 ‘Baby’. But Jensen was having none of it, basically replying that ‘you just want more time off and to see us work more. I see through you’ . 😆 I think is funny because Jensen really doesn’t like when Misha is off set for so many days.

*Apparently a fan said 'Dean’s robe’ and Misha confessed he heard 'deep throat’. I wonder who he was thinking about? 🙊

*Like always they were being grossly cute and giggly at the photo ops. 💕

What else? If I forgot something you can add it. Not much cockles this con, unlike the last one (not complaining though)~
