I've seen so many people say that it was AU Cas who stabbed Lucifer and then got stabbed and died but if Sam and Dean were never born then the war between heaven and hell would've likely started earlier and Jimmy would've been a lot younger or may not have been Cas' vessel at all. I mean he wouldn't have looked like our Cas, with that tie or that coat. And didn't Bobby say that angels wore... I don't remember. Was it ears around their necks? What do you think about AU Cas (if he's still alive)?
yeah, AU angels wear baby ear necklaces.
And demons in that AU are NOT like “our” demons. They’re physical bodies with weird skin and horns. So why would angels in that AU be grace possessing people? Why wouldn’t their true forms be equally physical to the demons? At least, that’s my logic.
I think the AU wasn’t just a divergence from our world at that moment Azazel killed John. I have a feeling that Azazel didn’t even OFFER her a deal, because in that world the angels and demons didn’t bother with the “middleman” of working their plans through humanity. They just fought each other directly. I think it’s a fundamentally different sort of world, with very different “magic.”
They’d just reminded us about the French Mistake universe where magic didn’t exist AT ALL. Where there WERE NO ANGELS OR DEMONS AT ALL.
Plus it didn’t look like they had shopping malls in that AU. It was a very Mad Max sort of world, you know? Even if Cas DID look like Jimmy in that AU, I can’t imagine any scenario in which he’d be wearing OUR Cas’s modern business clothes. It doesn’t make any sense at all.
I get that folks are clinging to this idea because they don’t want OUR Cas to be dead… but he is. We know he isn’t going to STAY dead though. Just like in 7.01 when he was reanimated almost immediately (but “contaminated” by the Leviathan), I think he’s going to be reanimated almost immediately in 13.01, but “contaminated” by Jack’s orange grace.
I’ve also read several theories that go to ridiculously convoluted lengths to postulate MULTIPLE AU’s that are very similar to ours, just to explain Cas’s “odd” behavior from scene to scene in 12.23. I get a headache just trying to follow along on them, because there’s one key piece of info they’re all overlooking in an effort to explain what seems VERY consistent to me…
It simply requires us to accept that Cas hasn’t been entirely under his own control since Jack touched him in 12.19.
If you begin from that assumption, EVERYTHING else Cas does in 12.23 makes perfect sense.
And we don’t have to jump through flaming hoops backward to try and find any more reason for it.
Exactly the way Tasha Banes seemed SO much like herself until she was compelled into serving the witch’s needs or wants in 12.20, Cas has seemed very much like himself EXCEPT WHEN JACK OVERRODE HIM OUT OF “NECESSITY.”
Like trying to keep Sam and Dean away from the rift, or trying to explain the rift to them, or reassuring Kelly about everything having to do with the vision of “paradise” Jack would bring to the world. That… was not Cas. I mean, it WAS Cas, but it was Jack influencing him with that weird golden grace.
(and yes this extends to Cas healing Dean both in 12.19 AND in 12.23 when we got to SEE him actively using Jack’s golden grace instead of his usual blue-white grace)
At least, that seems like the most reasonable explanation for everything to me.
I’ve had this in my askbox for days and I still don’t have a definitive answer but my first instinct is pink djksfghsfkdhg
it’s probably my first thought bc his tie sticks out so much but humor me here okay, what if his fave color really is pink, I love this concept?? I could see it being his go-to accent color for everything. perfect color to complete an outfit? pink. what color frosting does he want on a cake? pink. favorite mug? pink.
aaaa omg its so nice seeing new people in the SNS fandom!! I've never had the talent to draw/write/make gifs or videos, so I've never been able to contribute much, even though I've always wanted to. Welcome!!
contribute is a very subjective word. I do love our artists and writers and gifers and editors and such, but there are also those who do not fit in any of these categories yet they pretty much tie the whole sns fandom together.
And I think for a community to thrive we need all types and variety of people. you know, the rocks, and producers, and omnivores, and protectors, and oxygen, all of those biosphere things. Whether people are a silent or outspoken part of our community, it’s heartening and reassuring to know they’re there.
28. What’s your biggest “what if”? It’s a tie between “what if she’d loved me back” or “what if I’d never told her I love her at all” and idk which one’s worst to imagine at this point…but idk I think either might’ve been better than this
What would you want to be written on your tombstone?
Either something witty and funny (I’ll get back to you on what exactly when I think of it), or some song lyrics I love (I had one thing from a time I joked with friends about what should be on our tombstones but I can’t for the life of me remember what mine was)
91) You accidentally eat some radioactive vegetables. They were good, and what’s even cooler is that they endow you with the super-power of your choice! What is that power?
My gut reaction is to go with flight. There’s always been something enticing about the idea of just being able to up and go where ever I wanted to. (And think of all the money saved on airfare!) But it’s tied with the ability to breathe underwater.
Where I live has a whole bunch of spring systems and underwater caves, which are a whole bunch of fun to explore…if you like risking getting lost and running out of air. (which is a problem I wouldn’t have if I could breathe underwater.
So it’s a tie between those two.
Thanks @k-sunrael (who tumblr is not letting me tag…)!
Hi! I recently noticed that you've read some of Supernatural's released novels and so I really would love to hear your thoughts on them (but without significant spoilers) :) And would you want to recommend any of them? I've read "Rite of Passage" and "Cold Fire". Now I'm thinking about purchasing "The Unholy Cause" and one more novel but I find myself unable to decide which one could be the most interesting one. c:
Do you mean THIS novel?? My favorite of the ones I’ve read? The one that literally made me laugh out loud and giggle like a schoolgirl? This Unholy Cause??
I may or may not have read it.
Now the tie-ins are all different and quality depends on both the author and the reader’s preferences for style. The Unholy Cause is actually the only one I have loved and was unable to stop reading. The others have been slogged through or abandoned– but other people also had different reactions than I did to some of them, but I have not read all of them yet. ^_^
*straightens my tie, visibly sweating* uh so,, uh *tugs at my shirt collar* *wipes moisture off my forehead with a crusty oncemoist toilette from 2013* hm,, so i think i,, just *pats my cheeks* you know, i think i just: 🚶🚶🚶🚶
Question!! What are your top 5 episodes of SPN from seasons 1-5?? Very specific, I'm aware, but this is one of my favorite questions, and I love seeing peoples' answers!! <3
1. Pilot. I love the pilot not so much for what it is than for what it represents: the thing that started something that changed my life. 2. Wendigo. fUCKING - look - Winchesters. Camping. Forests. Wendigos. There’s NOTHING about this episode that isn’t a motherfucking gold mine (no pun intended, but fuck, take it). 3. The End. My love for endverse, and particularly endverse!Castiel, knows no bounds. Also the only Destiel in the world that really matters. 4. Wishful Thinking. I love this motherfucking episode. You don’t understand. Also, I am the teddy. 5. I’ve been struggling with this for five minutes. Let’s say a tie between Provenance, for the beauty that it is and particularly Sam/Sarah, and I Know What You Did Last Summer, for Jared/Gen reasons.
Question: Before you decided to make Bill the main bad guy, did you have another character in mind that would have been the villain?
Alex: Yeah, um that’s a good question. Uh, so, when we came up with the villain of the show, I knew that… I knew that Bill was involved. And I knew that Ford had disappeared due to some deal gone wrong with some villain next to the mystery of how Gravity Falls was all assembled.
Um, but, I didn’t yet decide that Bill was that character in the very beginning, y'know? I had always imagined it was some sort of evil character somewhere kinda hidden in the woods.
I wasn’t sure I could go with the Bill idea cuz I thought it would be too much like Twin Peaks, but as we got further along the series we discussed it among the repairs and we were like, ‘none of our other villain ideas were as good.’ Bill, Bill was weirder than anything else we thought of.
Um, I remember there were other ideas. Strange monsters and government officials; some kind of cthulhu– some weird crazy old man. But nothing was ever better than Bill, so it ended up sticking.
Probably somewhere around, y'know, season one– midway through season one, we started thinking we might be– might be on point.
Q: Was Grunkle Stan ever aware of McGucket’s connection to his brother?
A: Oh, oh that’s such a good question. Wait, let me think about that for a second… Uh… lemme see… I don’t think so. I don’t think Stan was ever aware of McGucket’s connection to his brother.
Because, by the time Stan traded identities with Ford, uh… McGucket had already gone off the deep end– Was already y'know, had already created the Society of the Blind Eye; had already lost his own memory. So Stan would’ve really only known McGucket as a local obnoxious fisherman.
And McGucket, probably somewhere deep in the back of his mind, was eerily just drawn to Stan in a way he just couldn’t put his finger on, because he thought maybe he knew him, but–
I don’t– I think Stan was ignorant of that. Um, I think Stan… I think Stan looking through the journals probably should’ve put two and two together, but Stan’s not the best at book-learnin’.
Uh, so… my guess is Stan wouldn’t have known despite that uh, that there’s a lot of tumblr art out there showing them as like the Scooby-Doo gang. I don’t think Stan ever really knew McGucket before.
Q: What episode do you believe came out the strongest and the most well rounded overall? And is it the same as your personal favorite episode?
A: Oh gosh. Um. That’s a great question. Hmm… I probably feel, personally, that the strongest episode is uh, “Not What He Seems” just because it’s such a dramatic episode. Like, we know– We’ve never had an episode that dramatic.
But, when we first pitched it to Disney executives… they thought it was bad. [laughs] Um, Because it didn’t have a lot of jokes in it?
Like, I remember normally when we’re pitching our episode, executives can usually gauge how good they are by how much people laugh. People didn’t really laugh for that one, because it’s really tense. So we thought, maybe we’d screwed up. But, when the animation came back we were like, 'Oh! It’s GOOD that it’s tense. Like, it worked!’
Um, So, I dunno if that’s my favorite episode, but I think– that’s the episode we should’ve won an Emmy for, and I’m still pissed we didn’t. [laughs]
In terms of favorite episode, like… I dunno. I think the first episode that I really felt that the show was really starting to feel the way I wanted it to– “Time Traveler’s Pig” in season one.
Like, that was an episode where Dipper had an interesting story, and Mabel had an interesting story, and uh, felt nostalgic, and based around the summer, and had a big secret callback to even previous episodes, so–
I just remember when we first just got that episode back in color, I was like, 'hey I think maybe I like how I’m making this cartoon show,’ so I think that has a particularly fond place in my heart, y'know.
Q: Is Disney bringing you to SDCC or NYCC later this year to promote the journal and other books coming out?
A: Right, um, yeah, Disney– Disney… Disney-general and me, have like– we’re divorced. Like, they kept the house, and the pets. Y'know what I mean? It’s… we don’t like get dinner or anything. But, the Disney Publishing department, separate from Disney Television, they’re really cool, and enthusiastic, and energized.
And they wanna make new cool stuff. Um, so I think it’s possible I might be at D23 this year, and it’s possible I might be at Comic Con, but I don’t have anything confirmed yet.
Q: In the scene where Bill is trying to convince Ford to join him in the Fearamid, were there any other jokes or story beats that were considered?
A: Which episode specifically are you talking about? [Q: The We’ll Meet Again scene.]
Yea yea yea, We had a– Every scene that you’ve ever seen in the show has a ton of ton of stuff we’ve thought of and had to cut for time or other reasons.
Um, I remember there was definitely a version of that where Bill was a lot trickier. Like, he sort of more successfully lied to Ford about like: 'We’re actually going to make the world a better place. Though I present myself as this chaos lunatic that’s just my personality.' Like, 'here’s ways in which we’ll IMPROVE the universe.'
Um, but it felt out of character. We thought it was much more like Bill to just draw smiley faces in oceans and eat the sun and just– hope, that the force of his charisma could convince Ford that that was a good idea.
But uh, I feel like– I feel like Bill can be really really tricky when he wants to, but by the time Weirdmageddon showed up he’s so impatient, and he’s so convinced that he won, that he was no longer like, this brilliant chess master he used to be. He’s like, 'alright let’s do it! Do what I want or I’ll eat your face.’
Like, no more– No more, like– He wasn’t as smart a tactician as he used to be, y'know?
Q: Was “We’ll Meet Again” always the song you were going to use?
A: Oh yeah, it had to be that. It was like… I think I’d just seen Dr. Strangelove recently around that time and it stuck in my head. It seems to me, if Bill has a taste in music, it would be, like, old timey music that ranges from either weird to obnoxious to obscure.
Uh, Disney wanted me to cut it cuz it cost them a bunch of money to get the rights, even though it’s so old, it still cost them money to get the rights. And I just… said, please. Over and over and over again. I would send an e-mail that just said, 'please.’ And send another e-mail that said, 'please.’ And I would send another e-mail that said–
Yeah. [laughs] Eventually I wore them down that they’re like, 'alright we’ll spend thousands of dollars.’[laughs]
Q: Are real comics coming?
A: You want comics? Would you read Gravity Falls comics? [Audience screams] [Alex leans his ear forward] [AUDIENCE SCREAMS]
A: It’s a terrifying noise isn’t it, Michael? I was at a… Gravity Falls gallery, and like, they didn’t tell us how many people would show up, and it was like, THAT noise echoing from every corner. And uh like, I think I lost a year of my life. My hair started going gray, and it was like, 'oh my god, this is too much love! It’s terrifying.'
Comics. I would love to do Gravity Falls comics. Um, I have so many… One of the tough things about a half hour show like Gravity Falls is every now and then we think of an idea that we really liked, but it was too short for a half hour; 'oh that’s only five minutes of story’– Or it’s too specific and weird.
And so I have tons and tons of ideas of the show that y'know we’d like to explore this character, we’d like to show this secret, this storyline. So, I’d love to do comics. But, that’s up to Disney Publishing, and I’m trying to convince them. So, hopefully, I’ll have something exciting to announce in not too long.
Q&A with Stan and Soos
Q: Is Dipper adorable or manly?
Stan: Dipper smells like baby wipes. Even if I cut off all my shoulder hair, and taped it to him, he wouldn’t be 1/10th as manly I am.
Q: What would you do if Mabel told you she had a date to prom?
Stan: I would… invite the gentleman over, have some coffee, tie him to a chair and interrogate him for 10 hours, and maybe throw him in the pit. [shrug] Hands off my neice, kid!
Q: What would happen if Soos met Giffany again?
Soos: Oh yea, I recently downloaded this couple’s therapy sim? Uh, I think she and I would have to talk about our issues and pass around a conversation pillow, and really work out these struggles. Cuz she’s got some problems, dude.
Q: Soos, why are you so perfect?
Soos: Yeah, uh, my grandma said that a whole bunch of doves flew down and formed the shape of a perfect angel over my crib. I dunno, dude I guess I was just born that way.
