for the hallucination to crack, for Cas to turn into the brunette with the
blowtorch, for Dean’s warm presence at his side to evaporate, for the scraping
at his wrists to return as he finds himself suddenly back in chains. He keeps
waiting for Toni to wake him up with a triumphant grin on her face, because she
got him to fall for her tricks again. It doesn’t happen.

last glance over her shoulder. The look isn’t triumphant. It’s murderous. He’s
too tired to answer her stare.

sound as she ascends them. With each beat, he expects them to turn around and rescind
the olive branch. He’s seen what their peace looks like, and it’s not this.

later, they disappear from sight.

Whoa!” Dean’s gruff voice, too loud but so very gratifying to hear. Dean’s
rough hands as he tries to hold him upright. “Castiel!” Dean bellows,
but the angel is already at their side. He reaches out to heal him.
Sam throws out his hand, clumsily slapping Cas’ hand aside. “Not

“I promise I mean you no harm.”

to help him.”
Sam’s more focused, and he grabs Cas firmly by the wrist. “I said,”
he hisses through gritted teeth, “Not. Yet.” He shoves the hand
away, and begins to painstakingly pull himself to his feet.
Dean says, a note of anger creeping into his voice. “You’re not thinking
straight. Let the man heal you.”
please. Let me help.”
Dean’s irritated worry and Cas’ soft words are almost enough to persuade him,
but Sam stubbornly shakes his head. He’s not even sure he understands it
himself. But somehow, unless he can get out of here on his own terms, he’ll
never accept it as real. “I’m walking out of here on my own

reddish light, he knows he’s made it.
If you don’t mind, I think I’m ready to be healed now.”
I do not foce anybody to follow me. Just like I have the right to unfollow you, you have the right to unfollow me. People are different and some get better along than others. Don’t feel forced to follow me, even if we’re mutuals . I’d rather have someone unfollow me than someone vague posting about me and spreading hate about me.
THEY USED EMOTION FOR THE END BIT WHY THAT PART MADE ME WANT TO CRY AND THEN TOUYA APPEARED WHY DID YOU TRY AND CEMENT MY SHIP CHOICE FOR GEN 5 WHY TEARING STILL N WAS BEAUTIFUL THIS EPISODE HE DOESN’T DESERVE TO BE CALLED A FREAK *Sobbing*
I refuse to apologize for my desire for Sara Lance to find her happy ending with either Nyssa or Leonard. I also refuse to apologize for disliking the idea of her being with anyone else other than those two. And I will NEVER apologize for using her name or their name in the tags while tagging my work alongside the ship name. I also refuse to be judged for my shipping choices because of others who are upset over the bitter tea they are desperately trying to drink.
Nothing says “fandom binge” like posting a fic rec list before you even finish the show ~*~*~
Descriptions here are by me, with apologies to the authors. (sorry/not sorry these are basically all ot3)
Odd Jobs (series) - Parker/Hardison/Eliot, 18,026 words, Explicit - this is a gloriously charming ot3 get together series. Part slapstick, part romance, part casefic, each of the three (as well Nate and Sophie) are so in character and so disgustingly in love. Also there’s kittens.
Shelter Me (series) - Parker/Hardison/Eliot, 21,193 words, Explicit - there’s this recurring theme in this fandom of “Eliot is watching Parker and Hardison’s relationship and wants in but doesn’t think he deserves love” and this fic is probably the most amazingly well done example of it. For all your angst and very hot, slightly weird porn needs, look no further.
Odd One Out - Parker/Hardison/Eliot, 27,697 words, Explicit - my notes on my bookmark of this one just read “Yessssssssss” because this is such a satisfying read. It’s a get-together ot3 fic, but with Parker and Hardison in a romantic relationship and Eliot as casual third, but where they all love and take care of each other (as in canon). Each one of them has complex needs and emotions and it makes such a good read watching them all figure it out together.
Nerds of the Earth, take note! - gen, 7951 words, G rated - Hardison POV MCU crossover in which he’s kidnapped by SHIELD to stop one of Tony Stark’s AI’s from taking over the world. Even if you’re not a Marvel fan, this is an excellent, fun Hardison-centric fic with lots of team-feelings.
like a map of a place you’ve never been - Parker/Hardison/Eliot, 24,549 words, Explicit - this is what the fake!married trope was made for. While Parker and Hardison are already together, Parker and Eliot have to go under cover as a married couple. Sexual tension, angst, and feelings ensue, with a happy ending.
Fair Share - Parker/Hardison/Eliot, 9,579 words, Explicit - starts out with cute comedy and friendship through food sharing, winds up as an equilateral get-together with excellent porn + feelings.
The Safe and Sound Job - Parker/Hardison/Eliot, 15,721 words, Teen - Eliot-centric case fic + ot3 get together. Eliot is injured on a job and then hurt/comfort, angst, feelings, and romantic realizations ensue. Excellently plotted and fantastic characterization of all three of them.
It’s a Long Way to Zanzibar - Parker/Hardison/Eliot, 11,722 words, Explicit - circa season 2, the trio go on a road trip to the Grand Canyon. I love a road trip fic, and I love a porny fic, and I love a slow dawning of feelings fic, and this is all of those.
Doing another ship week with @termina!! I’ve decided that my personal theme for ship choices this time around will be “don’t lose your way”, obviously inspired by Ryuko and Mako so I’m starting with them. It’s been awhile since KLK ended but I still love these two A Lot.
A little something I started on a few days ago for Sakura’s birthday and just finished today so hAPPY NOW BELATED BIRTHDAY SAKURA ≧(´▽｀)≦ This is actually an idea I’ve had for a while now cuz I lOVE Kaden and Sakura’s support SO MUCH THEY’RE SO CUTEO;IRG So when i was trying to think of something to draw for her birthday I remembered it and knew what I had to do ᕙ(▀̿̿Ĺ̯̿̿▀̿ ̿) ᕗ
