GUYS. I HAVE BEEN ON A TWO WEEK INTERNET BLACKOUT AND OH BOY
HAVE I MISSED YOU!
So guess who was on an actual ship, shipping my ship,
missing out on my ship sailing whilst sailing on a ship? (I’m sorry. Groan at
me all you want.)
Okay so here’s the thing, thanks to my 2 week stint on an
actual ship I haven’t been blogging or writing my reviews or meta and I am
bursting at the seams to talk about what the hell has been going on over the
past few weeks.
Because WOW. Guys… GUYS…
In case you have been living under a rock for the past two
weeks (or in the middle of the ocean with no wifi and a maritime data package
at £6 per megabyte like me…) then you may have missed the following HUGE
advances in our ships development towards a canon happy ending…
First we get 13x03 in
which Dean’s grief and anger over losing Cas was the trigger for Jack to use
his powers to literally pierce through the veil of death and save the day… because
we all know that this is a thing that gay love can do on this show – it’s a
CANON FACT (thank you Ghostfacers)
THEN in 13x04 we are once again reminded that Cas’s “love”
is a big focal point of his arc. The whispered “I know who you love” and the
specific break of flow with the “who” rather than the “what” that the two
neighbouring statements use forcing the audience to latch on to that “who” and question
In all three episodes we are shown JUST HOW DIFFERENT Sam
and Dean’s grief is regarding Cas. To the point Sam is almost portrayed as not
caring about his supposed “brother” and as much as this kinda sucks for Sam it
is exactly the kind of exposition we need to get the GA to start THINKING about
this stuff. WHY doesn’t Sam seem to care as much? WHAT IS DIFFERENT?
The fact that THREE times now Cas has been the episodes
cliff hanger, and that all three times his moment has come shortly after Dean’s
climactic emotional outburst in a way that is basically the television
equivalent of hitting your audience in the face with a shovel to scream at them
that CAS IS THE ANSWER. CAS WILL MAKE DEAN BETTER. DEAN DOESN’T BELIEVE IN
ANYTHING? WELL HE BELIEVES IN CAS. LOOK AT CAS. CAS IS BACK. CAS WILL MAKE IT
The sheer amount of negative space in these episodes has
floored me. There is a HUGE question mark hanging over the ENTIRE season so
far. This plot doesn’t quite work if you aren’t “in the know” (in other words,
a destiel shipper). But each episode 3, 4 and 5 have answered those silent
questions perfectly with a big neon arrow pointing directly at CAS.
Cas is the
answer to all of Dean’s problems, that is the message that the show has shoved
in the audiences face constantly since season 13 began, and the REAL silent
question that the show is just BEGGING the audience to ask is WHY? WHY is Cas
SO important to Dean? WHY is Dean’s grief SO MUCH worse than Sam’s? WHY is Cas
the answer to EVERY. SINGLE. EMOTIONAL. POINT. SO. FAR for Dean?
WE KNOW THE ANSWER.
What I am constantly being amazed by this season is that
this isn’t deep meta. This isn’t some next level highly analytical picking
apart of symbols and film theory that you need a degree in film or literature
to figure out. This is so close to surface level you can see it floating just
beneath the waves. As a destiel shipper at this point I am blinking and
wondering why I should even bother writing about this stuff because it is SO
OBVIOUS that at this point, if someone asks me where I see destiel in the show
I can just gesture vaguely at season 13 and say LOOK. Because all you need is
two eyes and a brain that is capable of consuming media with some degree of intelligent
Honestly what else is there to do now other than to sit back
and enjoy the show? I am desperate for them to finally bring it out of subtext
of course, as my one gripe is that we are still not there yet. All the
foundations are in place, but we still need a textual confirmation that what we
are watching is not platonic love. My feelings on that matter now is that we
are no longer dealing with an ‘if’ but a ‘when’ and I don’t say that kind of
Perhaps I am deluded in this thought, but every episode so
far in season 13 has had me struggling to find the platonic reading. We are
well and truly in romantic territory and I’m sorry but that final shot in 13x05
of Cas turning around to reveal himself to a shocked Dean, the slow zoom in on
both their faces as they stare longingly at each other… in what way is that NOT
Never in any previous season of SPN have we had a
consecutive run of 5 episodes where the overarching theme was all about
Castiel. Castiel and grief and Dean’s love for him. Because that’s what it’s
all been about. Sure we have had Jack’s story and Sam being a support figure
and a source of conflict for Dean, and we’ve had some new bad guys, but
ultimately, every single episode so far has been about CAS and how his death
has affected Dean. This is what has stunned me. This is what I can’t wrap my
head around. I guess being a Cas girl I am so used to being burned by this show
that I can’t quite handle it.
Nothing is certain of course, and I don’t have a magic
crystal ball telling me they are gonna go there, but with everything we have
been given I can’t fathom how they CAN’T be going there now. I have never been
more positive, and I only hope that the show continues to amaze me in this way.
Judging by the promo’s for next weeks episode, I think I will once again come
away with a huge grin on my face. Their reunion episode is COWBOYS FFS. I mean
JESUS could they BE any less subtle?!?
I have rambled on for far too long, but I had to get this
all off my chest. I am so very light and happy and gleeful about this all. I am
basically Dean in next week’s episode! A giddy school girl fangirling over the
thing I love and simultaneously revelling in the fact that the person I adore
has finally returned to me. Oh Dean. Your happy face in the promo makes me happy. I just KNOW it’s going to be fantastic.
“The destination is ahead on your right,” Jared tapped his finger against the steering wheel of the rental car as he followed the navigation system’s directions. Y/n had no idea he was coming and he wasn’t expecting a warm welcome from her. He slowed the car to a stop in front of the house, taking a deep breath before he climbed out of the car.
The walk to the door seemed to stretch on for hours and Jared paused outside the door, before sucking it up and ringing the bell. He shifted in spot, waiting impatiently for someone to answer the door. He heard voices inside the house until finally the door swung open.
Jared couldn’t help, but smile as the door opened to reveal Y/n standing on the other side. He’d missed seeing and talking to her. Y/n on the other hand, froze as soon as she saw him, a frown pulling across her face. “Go away!”
She went to close the door again, but Jared stuck his foot out, stopping it before it shut again. Y/n shoved the door again, trying to get rid of him, but Jared held strong. He wasn’t letting her get rid of him that fast.
“Listen, I know you’re mad at me, but we need to talk. I need you to hear me out!”
Y/n gave a final shove, but Jared still refused to budge.
“DAD!” Y/n shouted. Jared paused for a second, startled that she was calling him dad again. As soon as he saw Dan coming down the hall behind her, he realized that she wasn’t referring to him, but rather her step father.
“I don’t know Gen,” Jared responded tiredly. “I don’t think you’re going to have any luck. She officially hates me and I don’t really see what you calling her is going to do.”
“Well, it might not go so badly. I technically haven’t done anything wrong.” Jared shot her a dirty look and she shrugged. “Sorry, but besides being married to you, the ‘bad guy’ I haven’t made any damning comments. Maybe she won’t be too upset to talk to me. Even if she doesn’t give me much, getting her to answer my call would be a victory at this point.”
“What if it just makes it worse?” Jared asked nervously.
Gen rolled her eyes, “Jared, honey, do you honestly think it can get much worse? She’s stopped answering your calls, not that she was before and she thinks you don’t count her as one of your kids, along with who knows what else. She isn’t coming to visit anymore and she made it clear she doesn’t want to speak to you, thus eliminating all chances of making things right. How am I going to make things worse?”

Sheith Pirates of the Caribbean AU Part 2 (Part 1)
After the Brethren Court, Shiro hasn’t seen Keith ever since. But he can’t stop thinking about him. He’s never been this taken with someone else before. His night escapades just can’t compare.
He’s so smitten. It’s ridiculous.
He tends to stare into the horizon and just keeps sighing.
“Captain, you’re like a widower,” Lance says. “Get it?” Lance nudges his elbow. “Widower. The Widow’s Death?”
SHIRO BLUSHES SO HARD.
Lance just snickers. “Man, you got it so bad, huh? You don’t even join us anymore when we hunt for chicks in Tortuga. And that’s saying a lot because you usually get the most. And yesterday you didn’t even bother leaving the ship. C’mon. Is he really all that?”
“I have no idea what you’re talking about.”
Lance rolls his eyes. “Captain Keith Kogane. I don’t get it though. The guy has horrible hair. The guy’s a murderer. I mean, not saying we aren’t but he’s like—”
“Don’t you have something to attend to, Master Lance?” Shiro raises an eyebrow. After that no one dares talking to him about it.
He has no idea that he brings his ship to the Red Sea. Even Shiro is shock at this.
“Oh boy. Did not expect this at all,” Hunk whispers to Pidge and Lance.
Pidge is the first one to ask, “Captain, why are we here?”
“I… I don’t know, Pidge. I honestly don’t know.” Shiro answers breathlessly. However, his eyes roams around the place. Looking for something. For someone.
“I don’t think he’ll appear,” Pidge says softly. “No one has seen him.”
Despite everything, they stay. Shiro will do anything just to look at those dark purple eyes once again. He leaves the ship and goes to shore hours after midnight. He just stares at the sea. “Keith, where are you?”
“Looking for me?” Someone whispers in his ear.
Shiro jumps in his place and looks around. No one is there. Just him.
He hears someone laughing softly. “Why are you here, great ol young Pirate Lord of the Black Sea?” the voice asks.
“I… I can’t stop thinking about you,” Shiro admits.
The laughing stops and Shiro could feel it’s speaking in front of him. “I told you. I’m cursed.”
“I already know that, but is there a way to break the curse?”
“You don’t know anything about my curse,” Keith sneers.
“What do you mean?” Shiro asks, looking straight at nothing.
“Has it ever occurred to you how the hell am I able to defend my ship if I have no crew? How no ship ever makes it out of my territory?”
“No. Keith, show yourself,” Shiro requests. “Please.”
“If I do that you will definitely stop thinking about me. And you’ll sail away from this place forever.”
What is he talking about? “I’m sure I can handle it.” Shiro just really wants to look at those beautiful eyes once again.
“Don’t say I didn’t warn you,” Keith sighs.
A few moments later, right in front of Shiro is a rotten corpse wearing clothes full of blood. Shiro swallows the lump in his throat. He looks up and sees that Keith’s face has empty eye sockets. He takes a step back. It’s too much to take in one go. It’s not the Keith he saw months ago. This one looks very disturbing.
“I told you,” Keith disappears again instantly but Shiro was quick enough to grab his face and suddenly, Keith’s human face starts to form around where Shiro’s touching him. Shiro’s eyes widens in surprise as Keith’s dark eyes mirrors his expression.
Shiro smiles softly at Keith and places both of his hands on the younger pirate’s face. The second eye forms and then the rest of his whole face is visible. “You’ve got the most interesting curse, Captain Kogane.” He starts caressing Keith’s cheek. “I’d like to hear all about it, if you don’t mind.”
Keith slowly smiles at him, nodding as he leans into his touch.
Summary: Emma has only one regret from her Back to the Future adventure with Killian. And when she accidentally goes back in time–again–she has a chance to fix it, and damn the consequences. CS AU Week: Episode Rewrite. Rating: G Notes: *slides in under the wire for day 5 of CS AU week* eyyyyy, I’ve had this idea for a while and finally got around to writing it. Huge thanks to @justanotherwannabeclassic for beta-reading!
“I know, just—” Emma sighed. “Look, I have to pee, okay?”
He blushed, but it was his own fault for pressing the issue when she said she’d be right back. “Very well,” he replied. “I’ll wait here.”
It wasn’t easy to make her way through the trees and brush. It hadn’t been easy before she’d been magicked into a giant red ball gown, and the massive skirts really did not help. By the time she felt far enough away from Killian, she was completely out of breath.
She didn’t really need to pee, and thank god because how the hell would she in this dress? She just needed a break before she completely fell apart.
going to bed rn but just wanted to say thanks to you guys- I don’t know how this kickstarter is going to go, but whether or not I reach the target the fact that so many of you have asked for another book and are like, constantly wanting to support me and this crazy story that hijacked my brain five years ago is??? amazing? also I am so happy and lucky to live in a time and situation where I can make this stuff at all and get it to your eyeballs via the miracle of internet let alone a printed version so uh that’s… amazing as well. a lot of amazement here
yeah idk where I was going with this I’m tired as hell but thank you so much. I’m very grateful and now I’m going to sleep a lot and try not to freak out about it all
also sorry for getting so many of you to ship ducks (is the Ducktales staff even aware of how much love is in the Gladstone tag like really)
Apparently, as in the Reylo fandom, there’s people who swear there’s also no racism in the Sterek portions of the Teen Wolf fandom either.
And considering we’ve spent the past six years watching fandom tear Scott down at every chance they get and talk so much shit about Braeden (and her actress) because they get in the way of their ship sailing smoothly, that is one hell of a lie.
Or they just happen to scroll past any racism they see…
I mean do these people patting themselves on the back for shutting down “antis” talking about ships like Sterek (which does have a kinda racist fan base the way so many white dude slash ships do…) actually considering using Google to look at people talking about this stuff??
Because if you’re only listening to people telling you that there’s no racism in the fandom… Then you’ve got problems.
Like if you like Sterek, cool. But acting like there’s been nothing racist about Sterek fans over the past six years is basically the fannish equivalent of you sticking your fingers in your ears and humming.
Summary: the whole team is surprised to find out you’re still a virgin, and the news seems to make you more allegeable to some of the men around the compound. Bucky is no less surprised than the rest of the team, and finds it even harder to keep his eyes off you as he nurses a secret of his own, which he feels obliged to reveal to you after an incident in the training room.
