i want more crowley and naomi

8.21. Gosh I love this episode, but I just want to rather quickly point out one thing that tends to get overlooked: Ion and his horrifying fate. If you’ll recall, Ion is the angel Castiel was forced to kill (by digging an angel blade bullet out of his own gut and shoving it into Ion’s eye) in order to save himself… yet one more death on Cas’s hands.

But I really do feel Ion’s agony here. He’d been forced into Naomi’s employ, and endured one of the worst experiences possible. As a result, he felt his ONLY recourse was to work for Crowley on the side…

CASTIEL: Ion. How far can we let it all drop? This charge was left to us, it’s our mission.
ION: Do you even know what the mission was? They’ve been in all our heads.
CASTIEL: We aren’t machines for them to program and reprogram. That wasn’t what this was meant to be.
ION: Nothing matters.
CASTIEL: You are so wrong, brother. It all matters.

And there’s our “Nothing else matters.” Ion was as low as it was possible to get. Why?

ION: You soldiers, down in the garrison, at least they let you believe the lie. Upstairs, working for Naomi, working in intelligence, we had no option but to live in the dirt. She never reset me completely. I always knew too much, I had to— I had to do my job.
CASTIEL comes up behind him.
CASTIEL: Ion… [he knocks ION to the ground] Shut up.
CASTIEL takes the angel bullet and pushes it into ION’s eye. ION erupts with white light, screaming.

Basically? He did what he had to do.

*obligatory pause to scream about how that’s the worst line on this show*

Working for Naomi, he had been reprogrammed by her over and over again, but was never allowed to entirely forget, because he had to remember enough in order to keep doing his job for her. It’s almost worse than what happened to Cas.

No wonder he betrayed her to Crowley… he couldn’t take it anymore

I think Ion would’ve definitely been one of the angels who wouldn’t have wanted to return to Heaven in s10, who were grateful to have been dumped out on the Earth to finally experience humanity and free will and choice … Imagine not only knowing you’d been reprogrammed over and over again, but being violently AWARE of the fact and being left with just enough to know how much was stolen from you every time.

It’s entirely horrifying from start to finish. I just wanted it remembered that Ion wasn’t a “bad guy.” He was a walking tragedy.

Mick Davies Appreciation

1. Mick was an orphan living on the streets as a pick-pocketer before a member of the British Men of Letters placed him in Kendricks Academy.

2. He was forced to kill his best friend when he was little and was haunted by the memory since. :(

3. Like Cas, he was trained to follow a rigid code growing up and began to question the Letters’ harsh rules after spending time with Sam and Dean.

4. He eventually stood up to Dr. Hess in defense of Sam, Dean, and Eileen and rejection of the code, only to be executed by Ketch.

5. His motivation was never diabolical. Even when he was serving the British Men of Letters, he only wanted to do what was right.

6. He dresses a little bit like Cas and shares some of his physical characteristics, doesn’t he? lol what a coincidence

7. His last words were, “I choose to do the right thing.” :’(

I just saw a post about someone being frustrated that people only seem to want Dean to be bi to have major lgbt representation when Crowley is canon pansexual. What? What did I miss? WHen was it made canon?

Hey, dear anon :)

Well, I guess “canon” is maybe too strong of a word since they never explicitly discuss or confirm Crowley’s sexuality on the show, but Mark Sheppard himself said at a convention a few years back that he believes Crowley to be “more pansexual than anything else” and it seems that a bunch of people agree with that (me included, by the way).

I mean, in his very first scene he’s kissing a man (granted, mainly to seal a deal, but still ;p), he’s indulging in constant sexual remarks and innuendos towards almost anyone who seems to perk his interest one way or another and it’s at least quite canon that he participated in an orgy while possessing a female vessel (with women and men involved). And, of course, more importantly, don’t forget his good time with demon!Dean and some triplets  ;DD

In this regard he doesn’t seem to see much of a difference between men and women, humans, demons (I mean, Lilith had been rumored to be his lover, for example) or angels/reapers (Naomi and Billie [both only implied, but rather heavily imo ;)]).

So I think pansexuality is a good way to describe his preferences. You may call it canon, you may not.

In the end it’s Crowley and he does whatever the hell he wants :DD

anonymous asked:

Going by strictly supernatural episodes, which canon relationships did you find the most interesting and the most disturbing? For instance, I kind of like the idea of Naomi and Crowley. I also loved Bobby and Ellen.

Canon? Hmmmmmmmmmm…

Well, we all know how I feel about Dean and Cas and their relationship to canon so I’ll fix that.

I really wish we saw more John and Mary actually? Like, he loved her so much that it completely broke him when she died? I want to know more about them. What else…I loved Sam and Madison. 

Disturbing? Hm. Well. Drowley was…a thing that happened. There’s not a lot that I find disturbing. I kinda hated Benny and Andrea, not gonna lie. I thought that was a lame place to take his story. Ketch and Mary was sorta ick too.

Gadreel Appreciation

Anonymous asked: “Can you do a gadreel appreciation post?”

Easy peasy. :)

1. According to Metatron, he was God’s most trusted. That’s why he was chosen to protect the Garden.

2. He was the first to respond to Dean’s call for help.

3. He helped heal and protect Sam while he was possessing him.

4. All he could think about during his imprisonment was reclaiming his good name.

5. He did not forget the mission God gave the angels: to protect mankind.

6. He acted as a double-agent in the end to assist Castiel in bringing down Metatron.

7. He sacrificed himself to free Castiel so he could break the angel tablet and stop Metatron.

Bonus: His final words, “I sat in this hole for thousands of years thinking of nothing but redemption, of reclaiming my good name. I thought of nobody, no cause other than my own… The only thing that matters in the end is the mission: protecting those who would not and cannot protect themselves. The humans. None of us is bigger than that, we will not let our fears, our self-absorption prevent us from seeing it through. Not anymore… Move to the other side of your cell Castiel, and keep your head down. When they say my name, perhaps I won’t just be the one who let the Serpent in, perhaps I will be known as one of the many that gave Heaven a second chance.” ;-;

Double bonus: the judgy face ;)

Castiel Appreciation

If you have read my bio or scrolled through my blog recently, you may have noticed I am a bit of a Cas girl. I love Castiel to the point of physical pain, so this post is going to be easy for me.

1. He is played by Misha Collins…. nuff said? I don’t want this post to get too long.  ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

2. He has a big heart. Unlike any other angel we have met on the show, Castiel loves his Father’s creation. He loves the Winchesters. He would do anything (and has done everything) to save the world. He has given his life multiple times for the greater good.

3. #character development:  “What is so worth saving? I see nothing but pain here. I see inside you. I see your guilt, your anger, confusion. In paradise, all is forgiven. You’ll be at peace. Even with Sam.” (4x22) “Well, yeah. You’re the ones who taught me that you can make your own destiny. You don’t have to be ruled by fate. You can choose freedom. I still believe that that’s something worth fighting for. I just wanted you to understand that.” (6x17)  “It’s where I belonged. I needed to do penance. After the things I did on Earth and in Heaven, I didn’t deserve to be out. And I saw that clearly when I was there. I… I planned to stay all along. I just didn’t know how to tell you. You can’t save everyone, my friend… though, you try.” (8x17) "I didn’t want to hurt any of them. I want to help you. I will devote my life to helping you all.“ (9x01) "I’m no leader, Hannah. I never was. I just want to be an angel.” (9x23) “It’s what the humans do. They say they’re fine. And even if I—I don’t look it, you say I look well, and that way, we avoid talking about something we can do nothing about.” (10x03) “Yes, well, um… Before, I was very self-assured. I was convinced I was on this righteous path. Now I realize that there is no righteous path. It’s just people trying to do their best in a world where it’s far too easy to do your worst.” (10x09)

4. In spite of the fact that a majority of his existence was spent as the captain of a garrison and a very Important Angel, he is meek and gentle. >.<

5. He has been through a lot of crap. (Naomi’s torture and manipulation, unjust treatment from other angels and even the Winchesters, Metatron’s manipulation and betrayal, etc.) In other words, we need an episode focused solely on Cas lounging in the bunker with hot chocolate, blankets, and Netflix.

6. I think a lot of people (esp. Cas haters) forget that even when Cas was playing God and he wasn’t in full control of himself, he was still only trying to fix the world (besides smiting, he also spent a lot of time healing lepers and the blind). The only humans he was said to have killed were the KKK, various hypocritical religious leaders, and other corrupt individuals, and I got the impression he only killed the angels who were on Raphael’s Apocalypse 2.0 team. Once he began killing without cause, however, that’s when he, an over-powered Angel of the Lord, went to the Winchesters and Bobby, humans other angels would have deemed insignificant, for help. (Maybe I’m wrong; you can correct me.) He likely saved way more people than he harmed, and I think he has paid enough penance for his actions since.

7. His sense of humor.

Bonus: He is a kitty.

Balthazar Appreciation

@morningstarcas asked: “Hi Mitzi, can you make a Balthazar appreciation post? I feel like people forget about him way too often.”

1. Much like our beloved Gabriel, Balthazar left Heaven to pursue a hedonistic lifestyle on Earth. He used to fight with Castiel, so the fact that they were as close to friends as angels could supposedly get makes him easy to appreciate. :)

2. He also collected some powerful artifacts from Heaven, which was smart considering he wasn’t an archangel like Gabriel and would need the power in case, say, Raphael came a-smitin’.

3. Balthazar temporarily defeated Raphael in 6x03 to save Castiel. He also sided with Cas until he realized Cas’s plan was to open Purgatory.

4. He never threatened, harmed, or killed any of the Winchesters (and he returned poor Aaron’s soul). What a rarity!

5. He acted as a double agent between Castiel and the Winchesters because he knew Castiel’s plan would go south. He helped the brothers find Ben and Lisa.

6. Even though he just wanted to be left alone to serve only himself, he was willing to step up and fight the good fight. :3

7. He was sassy and hilarious, okay?

In conclusion: GIVE US MORE ANGELS LIKE HIM, SPN. (ง'̀-‘́)ง

There are some interesting theories about Crowley working with Metatron floating around.

And so, of course, I must add mine to the list. :P

When I was writing up my post about the tablets, I had a fleeting thought about this topic but I dismissed it.  Because it just didn’t seem to make total sense to me.  Here are the facts I find interesting.

  • Dean said that the last guest at Metatron’s casino home had been there in 2006, but he doesn’t say a name.
  • We know from Trial and Error that Crowley was running around doing deals disguised as a travelling salesman in 2003.  Apparently, he wasn’t telling people about the 10 year time limit, and he was drumming up extra business on the side himself.  This seems a little different from his idea of an “honest deal” that he holds now.
  • We never saw how Crowley got the demon tablet.  He just had it at the end of season 7, according to Kevin’s story of what had happened to him.
  • Early on, Crowley calls Metatron the “suck-up who took down God’s Word and picked up his cleaning”, so he knows of him either from personal experience or has heard a not so great opinion of him from someone else.
  • Crowley needs someone to translate the tablets for him.
  • When Metatron got Kevin from Crowley, he left Crowley with burns on his face and in obvious pain.  There was no reason to do this “just for show” for the sake of an observer, because there wasn’t anyone around to see it.  (Kevin actually appeared to be dead when he got back to Metatron’s.)
  • Crowley didn’t know there was a compendium of tablets.
  • Crowley didn’t know there were trials to close Hell.
  • As other people have mentioned, Crowley told Kevin he didn’t need him any more because he has lots of other deals running.
  • Metatron left the Angel tablet at Crowley’s, even though it was sitting on top of a table in the same room.
  • Crowley and Naomi knew each other.
  • Naomi has wanted to get into Metatron’s head for years.  And she did not appear to have a very high opinion of him.
  • Metatron “let Naomi see in his mind” that if Sam finished the Hell trials, he would die.  (Which I have never believed to be fully true.)

It just doesn’t add up for me that Crowley and Metatron have been actively working together this entire time.  Because why would Crowley have needed Kevin so badly?  Metatron could have easily told him what was on the demon tablet.  At least parts of it.  And what was in it for Metatron?  And why leave Crowley to sit there in the bunker dungeon all that time when Metatron was already in heaven flipping switches?

But, I do think it’s possible they formed some sort of mutually beneficial deal several years ago.  What if Crowley found Metatron back in 2006?  (That’s around the end of season one or beginning of season two.)  And *Crowley knows how much Naomi wants to get her hands on him.  So Metatron tells Crowley where the demon tablet is hidden in exchange for Crowley keeping his hiding place a secret.  Maybe Metatron told Crowley just enough information from the tablet that Crowley could rise up from obscurity in the demon world…a little like Metatron managed to rise up from obscurity in the angel world. 

Years later, the Leviathan tablet is found and opened and Kevin receives his call as a prophet who can read the Word.  And then Crowley gets his hands on Kevin and decides this is the perfect opportunity to get some more information off the tablets, because he never really trusted that weaselly Metatron guy.  And he is surprised to learn that there is a way to close Hell written on there.  Metatron didn’t tell him about that part.

And when Sam and Dean find Metatron and tell him they are doing those trials to close the gates, Metatron tells them to think about it and make sure that’s what they really want to do.  He doesn’t flat out tell them not to.  He doesn’t tell them the consequences, though I’m pretty sure he probably knows.  He goes and saves Kevin, violently knocking Crowley away.  Was that a little show of power, just to remind Crowley that he is quite powerful indeed?  But he doesn’t take the angel tablet.  I would think he could sense it being so close, but maybe not.  Or maybe he did sense it and chose to leave it there.

I think that’s the only time Metatron and Crowley were in the same room together, right?  And it wasn’t Metatron’s vessel we saw, just his glowy power. (I find it very intriguing that Curtis and Mark were filming together for the finale.  I suspect we’ll find out some answers to all this, then.)

There are a lot of pieces missing, but I really think Crowley and Metatron made a deal around 8 years ago.  I don’t think they ever liked each other.  I don’t think they have any respect for each other.  I think it was just a business transaction.  And, I think they’ve been trying to weasel around the edges of the deal, but that there are parts of it that, for whatever reason, can’t be broken without a lot of trouble falling on both of them.  Metatron doesn’t really want Hell closed for some reason I can’t figure out, but I think it has something to do with the deal.  He must still be getting some benefit from the deal even after Naomi is dead and the archangels are out of the way.  And Crowley hasn’t told everything he knows about Metatron, either, like how to reverse the angel fall spell. They don’t want to work together, and they don’t have each other’s best interests at heart, and if they can figure a way to get out of it, they will.  But they are somehow bound up together.

There’s one big puzzle piece they both know about, but we don’t.

The one big thing I can think of that both of them would hate is if Michael and Lucifer got popped out of the cage. I’m reluctant to say that’s what show would do, though.

*Hell, show could even use this to tie up the Mesopotamia slip.  Metatron could have time-travelled Crowley back to get Naomi and paid him with the tablet, but Crowley failed to dupe her and refused to go around for another run.

Jimmy Novak Appreciation

@morningstarcas​ asked: “This is a bit late but thank you for the Balthazar Appreciation post. I didn’t see one about Jimmy Novak. Can you do him? I love him with all my heart

Don’t we all?

1. First, he was played by Misha Collins, yet looks NOTHING like Cas.

2. Jimmy was devout in his religious beliefs and unfortunately paid a heavy price for it. At least he went to Heaven and was able to be with his wife for eternity. :)

3. He said ‘yes’ to Castiel, and like Dean told Claire, doing so contributed to stopping the Apocalypse and saving the world.

4. He was a great father and husband. He sacrificed himself for Claire so she wouldn’t have to be possessed, and Amelia clearly loved him (she did spend 6 years looking for him). <3</p>

5. He was able to hear and comprehend Castiel’s real voice, which made him very special.

6. He initially agreed to allow Castiel in on the condition that the angel protect his family.

7. The reunion in Heaven with Amelia was both heart-breaking and heart-warming. ;-; I hope he’ll be able to see his daughter again (though let Claire live a long and happy life first, please).

😭😭😭😭😭😭😭 [x]
