i still think that the white haired dude being she li’s older brother would make a lot of sense, it’d explain why she li is already involved in that world and also his interest for jian yi
it would also make a great contrast with he tian: the two of them already have opposite color schemes - with he tian having black hair and grey eyes (that sometimes turn black), and she li having white hair and golden eyes - and i always felt like the reason why he tian is now living in his uncle’s apartment and doesn’t get along with his brother anymore is because he doesn’t want to be involved in the mafia, unlike she li who embraces that path
we also had guan shan thinking that he tian was the same as she li at the beginning, while in the end he found out that despite the ostensible similarities, he tian is actually quite the opposite, so it would make sense to me to keep up with this contraposition between the two
Kinda wonder whether what Mary wants is hunting or family, because don’t get me wrong I’m all for both, both is good, and it can work for Sam and Dean and hopefully Cas but I don’t think it’s what Mary actually wants.. I mean, I’ve been buying the ‘kill all the monsters to give sons a normal life’ thing but now I think.. if she really wanted family, she wouldn’t have had the urge to hunt when Dean was a kid and all? Maybe she’s really kidding herself? Or is this also still the messed up cupid/resurrection thing affecting her?
I also wonder if John would’ve been able to/wanted to stop after Azazel’s death if he’d still been alive back then..
What I’d also like them do with this character story is the boys not ‘because mom’-ing everything about her, because that way they can never develop an honest relationship with her. I’d like them to temporarily(!) break with her so she can earn her place in the family by herself and not based on expectations.
Adulthood is literally just a cycle of spending every waking minute wishing you could go to bed until it’s actually time for bed and then it becomes the absolute LAST thing you want to do because going to bed is the thing that makes tomorrow happen and then you have to do it all over again
HEY IT’S A (really late) VALENTINE’S DAY SEQUEL TO THIS! You should really look at that to understand what’s going on, but as a quick backstory to this, Adrien found out the scarf he thought his dad gave him was from Marinette, it upset him too much so he gave it back to her.
And then I hated that it was just angst so I made this to make up for it? What started as a one page thing turned into a too-many-pages thing. Hence being like… 2 weeks later for V-day. Oh well! Enjoy!
