i don't know whom to choose

Quick summary of fanmeet so far !

(info thanks to himchansdimple)

  • Daehyun has been practising the musical so much all the members feel like they’ve already seen it
  • Yongguk sang some of Daehyun’s musical song
  • Youngjae said Daehyun is still debating about whether he should pretend to kiss or actually do the kiss scene (just god darn do the kiss scene lad)
  • Games have been played! 
  • Junhong won first against Daehyun and then against Jongup (whom he said he think he could win against so props to JH)
  • Then Yongguk had to choose to play against someone and he picked Youngjae. and… somehow Youngjae ‘poop hands’ won. 
  • Youngjae then had to play a game involving hitting the other person. he chose Himchan. Himchan won. 
  • Jongup then had his turn and he picked Junhong. Jongup won by doing nothing (I figure Zelo just spectacularly failed) 
  • Daehyun picks to play against Junhong. Junhong loses. His forfeit was to do the banana aegyo (done before).

Dean being the type of guy to notice the milk had gone bad and just put it back in the fridge instead of throwing it out I think says a lot about the person he is/has been for a while. The smile and deny kinda guy. If he don't see the milk, it's no longer a problem he has. But it is still there, he didn't get rid of it, it's still getting worse hidden inside the fridge. Lol, I may be drunk, but what do you think?

Dean is layered layers, so I see what you’re getting at. But. I see Dean as not being in denial so much as being very careful with whom he shares information, and using walls upon walls to cope and get through all the crap he has to get through. He knows exactly what he’s doing, because he’s self-aware, when he chooses not to talk and instead reaches for the alcohol or a gun. 

For example, he wasn’t in denial about being hurt by Mary, even though he didn’t want to talk about it very much. When he tried with Cas, he got shut down, and Sam’s brand of therapy was asking him to talk when he wasn’t ready, so what’s a guy to do? He doesn’t exactly have a lot of other people to talk to. He did very sincerely thank Jody for her offer to talk and who knows if he took her up on it, but he didn’t blow her off or pretend he didn’t need someone to talk to when she offered. 

When Cas died in s7, he seems to be hiding his feelings, but he actually tells Sam he’s having a hard time trusting people since Cas, which is honest and true and pretty darn open. Dean’s not hiding, so much as attempting to spill at times, it doing no good (not that I’m blaming Sam because what can he do about a dead friend, after all?) so he buries his feelings down and drinks or hunts or whatever.  So yeah, I see what you’re saying. He definitely shoves things far away behind a wall so he can function, just like he shoves the milk back in the fridge. It’s just one of his many coping mechanisms. 

compulsively hate ships that happen out of nowhere, in first episodes, without buildup, ships in which “I love you”, “always” are said after five convarsations, girls who are all melodramatic over guy whom they know for a month, guys who choose girl whom they know for two weeks over family/friends/everybody.

Hello Mrs. Elani. I was wondering about daily rituals. i actually don't know what to do for morning and evening rituals. Which gods should I honor upon rising in the morning and before retiring for the night? I've never really found any elaboration on daily ritual in Hellenismos, and was wondering if you could help, thank you.

Errr… I can give you mine…? Which Theoi you choose to worship as part of your household practice is entirely up to you, however. These are the Theoi I have built kharis with or whom I think influence the cycles of day and night. These are the Theoi I feel comfortable worshipping daily. Who those are to you is a matter of personal preference.
