i probably didn't do it right

arielgryffinpuff  asked:

Heya. So I was wondering as a pro-John blog, do you accept that John was not a perfect father, made mistakes or could have done something different to raise his children? I have varied views. Looking at it logically it seems right that he did what he could, he tried to keep them safe, he loved them. To me, without Mary, John couldn’t raise his children the way he wanted to. obviously him abusing them is not canon. What negative character traits do you think John shows, as well as his positive?

I do realize that John was not perfect. I mean, no character is perfect. And I’d be dumb to say that John was completely perfect without flaws.

If you do look at it, John really did try his best. He just wanted Sam and Dean to stay safe, and to learn hoe to protect themselves and others.

He was a little too focused on hunting Azazel, and even John admitted that he was flawed and a bit too obsessed. He’s bullheaded and didn’t say stuff exactly like how he should have. He’s admitted to Sam that he was a little harder than he should have been, he’s admitted to Dean that he put too much on his shoulders as a kid.

If Mary had somehow survived the might of the fire, I feel like Sam and Dean’s lives would have gone differently with how Sam and Dean were raised in the hunter world. They would have gone waaaay different if Mary hadn’t even gone to check on Sam that night, cause nothing would have happened, Sam and Dean would have been raised normally; and most likely, Sam and Dean would have succumbed to Lucifer and Michael.

But it was so obvious that he cared about his kids. I mean, you can see him tearing up like every other scene with Sam or Dean. He literally gave his life to keep Dean alive. He loves his boys and he is proud of them. Sam and Dean are all he has and he literally protected them until the day he died.

after some searching, i found this post that i made a year and a half ago(ish) about reasons why i love John Winchester (which I think I made some good points tbh)

John Winchester is flawed and that’s what makes me find him interesting and why I love him.

So today I asked my students to tell me what their favorite English word was and most of them were super deep, choosing words like “dreams” and “love”. Then one of them says “Netflix” and immediately after another student says “Chill” with that devious smile on her face probably assuming I wouldn’t get it because I’m a teacher. And I just said “you do know I understand that reference, right??”. And everyone just burst out laughing and I can see my mentor, who’s like 60 years old, looking really confused at the back of the class which made it even funnier.

Yeah I really just laugh at when people compare Aang temporarily losing Appa to Katara's mother being murdered and her experiencing it and living through it, you explained it best in your previous meta, and what shocks me even more is that people don't see the connection in Zuko and Katara both losing their mothers, like yeah Zuko's mom was alive in the end but Zuko didn't know that did he? His mom was probably dead for all he knew, and that's one of many things Zuko and Katara have in common.

You’re right, I guess Zuko and Katara do have a thing or two in common …

Katara: The Fire Nation took my mother away from me.

Zuko: I’m sorry. That’s something we have in common.

Iroh: Please, sit. Why don’t you enjoy a cup of calming jasmine tea?
Zuko: I don’t need any calming tea!

Aang: Okay, okay, you both need to calm down.
Katara Both?  I’m completely calm!

Katara: I know it’s meant to be this way. The world needs you now. You give people hope.

Iroh: Things will never return to normal. But the important thing is, the Avatar gives Zuko hope.

Zuko: Not that you would understand. You’re like my sister. Everything always…came easy to her. She’s a firebending prodigy – and everyone adores her.

Katara: Will you PLEASE shut your air hole! Believe it or not, your infinite wisdom gets a little old sometimes. Why don’t we just throw the scroll away since you’re so naturally gifted!

Zuko: You can’t sacrifice an entire division like that! Those soldiers love and defend our nation! How can you betray them? 

Katara: No. I will never, ever turn my back on people who need me!

Aang: I… I was just showing Katara a few moves. 
Master Pakku:
You have disrespected me, my teachings, and my entire culture.

Zuko: I won’t fight you. 
Fire Lord Ozai: You will learn respect, and suffering will be your teacher. 

Zuko: You rise with the moon.

Zuko: I rise with the sun.

Iroh: Prince Zuko, have you forgotten what happened last time you dueled a master?
Zuko: I will never forget. 

Sokka: Are you crazy, Katara? You’re not gonna win this fight!

Katara: I know! I don’t care!

Katara: Why don’t you try blocking my chi now circus freak!!

Zuko: ‘I’m so pretty, look at me. I can walk on my hands, whoo!’ Circus freak!

Zuko: She’s not my girlfriend!

Katara: I’m not his girlfriend!

Katara: Here’s your chance, earthbenders! Take it! Your fate is in your own hands!

Zuko: A hundred years of fighting has left the world scarred and divided. But with the Avatar’s help, we can get it back on the  right path, and begin a new era of love and peace.

Maybe.
