Hi Sasha. I'm a Corporate PR intern and student. I try to keep track of Hollywood PR trends too. 1D and all their drama just fascinates me. Believe me, this is like science fiction to PR professionals. I've been lurking on a few 1D blogs including yours. I agree nothing going on publicly with these guys is by accident. Alot of it flies in the face of basic PR and common sense. Ok, so I have a plan to end the Zayn leaving and babygate stunts neatly and all at once. Here it goes (1)

It’s harsh and filthy nasty stuff but they need to stage a miscarriage in the next few weeks. I suggest any time between the Chicago and Detroit shows. I say that because the shows need to be clustered together with not many days off in between. Once the miscarriage is announced, Louis will leave the tour to be at his close friend’s *eye roll* side in mutual grief. Here comes the fun part. Instead of canceling tour dates or attempting to perform as a three piece, 1D will ask Zayn to fill in. (2) Of course, Zayn will agree to help his boys at this distressing and stressful time. I recommend at least two shows as OT4 2.0. That gives 1DHQ time to whip the fans and media into an all out frenzy. Louis will publicly thank Zayn, speculation of an OT5 reunion will begin. 1DHQ will confirm Louis’ return date but stay silent on Zayn. An orgy of anticipation will ensue. Rumors will fly. Everyone waits with bated breath for the next show. Then showtime and BOOM, OT5. (3) Zayn will confirm shortly thereafter that he needs to be with his boys to help them all through this current struggle. They’re also helping him get over Perrie *snort*. So the solo album is put on hold because a bunch of songs about wild (Ziam) fucking isn’t going to look right just after the Zerrie break-up *ha ha*. All this happens before September 1st. 1DHQ has time to put Zayn on the 5th album. The 5th album will also include the OT5 version of Drag Me Down for extra promo advantage. Done and done! What do you think?

__________________________________

I say let’s fucking do this. How do we do this? This needs to be done. 1DHQ steal this idea. Please. Let’s wrap it up. Let’s goooo!

For real, that angle of Zayn helping 1D in a jam plus Louis being grateful would absolutely shut up the segment of the fandom that’s still salty about Zayn leaving. That would do the trick. It’s a sad story (miscarriage) with a feel good ending about brotherhood. The fandom and the press would go totally beserk for this. Yes, this should happen.

What’s a soulmate?

“Sometimes, there’s other things you wouldn’t think would be a good combination, but end up being the perfect combination.”

“And if you die, I’ll literally go out of my freaking mind.”

“Someone that has a strong connection to you. A kind of emotional tether.”

“Lydia, look at me. Don’t listen. Okay, don’t listen to it. Just focus on my voice, Lydia. Don’t listen to it, block it out. Okay?”

“He paid attention. He listened to her. He remembered.“

Some brief info on the taken king.

From Kotaku

“There are eight new story missions that Bungie’s calling the “first act” of The Taken King, and then there will be a host of other quests and chains that you can get from various vendors at the Reef and Tower. One example of these endgame quests: Unsealed Paradox, a mission set inside the Vault of Glass that’s all about a certain dude by the name of Praedyth. 

There’s also the raid, of course; it’s called King’s Fall and Bungie’s hyping it up to hell and back. (So stoked for this one.)Lots of little story touches—because what would Destiny be without story?—like the new Nolan North-voiced Ghost jabbering with Eris Morn, Zavala, and other various characters as you play. You’ll also be able to examine random objects during missions for little blasts of lore, Bungie says. Maybe this is how they’ll implement all those grimoire cards?

They’re reorganizing old story missions too, to better incorporate the stuff from The Dark Below and House of Wolves into the main quest. The reef, for example, will now open up once you meet the Awoken Queen.

Members of the Taken—the new enemy race—have all sorts of abilities: Taken Wizards, for example, will summon shadow thralls to kill you. Taken Vandals have Titan-Defender-like shields and Taken Captains throw orbs that can temporarily blind you.

There are four new strikes: Fallen Saber (on Earth; you’ll fight against a super-powered Shank); Shield Brothers (on the Dreadnaught; you’ll take out two Cabal leaders); Sunless Cell (hunt down a Hive Darkblade who rebelled against Oryx); and Echo Chamber (this is the PlayStation-exclusive one; it’s yet another Vex mind). Three old strikes are also getting remixed: Dust Palace, Undying Mind, and Cerberus Vae.These new strikes have “raid-light” mechanics, Bungie says; in other words, you won’t just be killing waves of enemies, thank god. And since the developers are well aware of how repetitive strikes are, they’re triggering these new and revised strikes to change up enemies and even narrations on replays, which could be either really great or really irritating.

 No in-between.Year One legendary weapons will go obsolete fast—Bungie says that when you load up The Taken King, you might even find white or green weapons with higher attack values than your poor 365 Fatebringer and Vision of Confluence. RIP.

You’ll be able to turn in Bounties without going back to the vendor. Game-changer.The Gunsmith in the Tower will have his own reputation meter and bounties—work with him enough and you’ll be able to order weekly weapon deliveries, which sound really neat. Once a week you can pay him for a new legendary weapon, which will arrive on Wednesday with a random set of new perks.

Lots of reputation/material streamlining: Vanguard and Crucible marks are turning into one pool called Legendary Marks, while all class armor materials (like Plasteel Plating) will morph into items called Armor Materials.

No new vault space yet. Says Luke Smith to GI: “We’re still bumping into a technical limitation for vault space. We are exploring options for getting stuff out of players’ inventories via these kiosks that we’ve placed around the tower, but we’re still working toward a solution that we’re excited about.”

There’s an exotic pulse rifle called No Time To Explain. Yep.

Lots of other new exotics coming too, like Sleeper Simulant, a heavy weapon fusion rifle that shoots bouncy laser blasts. You have to do a whole quest line (filled with puzzles, Bungie says—actual puzzles!) to get this one.

Crucible quest lines are coming, as are new Crucible bounty types. Trials of Osiris will get its own set of bounties, and you’ll be able to play through an array of weekly Crucible bounties that eventually lead you to exotic-caliber rewards. 

This is in addition to all the new PVP maps (eight!) and modes (three that we know of, so far).The Dreadnaught sounds pretty rad, like it’ll be full of more interesting content than most patrol zones that are in Destiny today. Says Smith: “Through your adventuring on the hive ship, you’re going to find a bunch of arcane objects that you can use to summon ultra bosses.” Uh, yes.”

Seems oddly suspicious that Zerrie breakup announcement is on the same day as 1d on GMA with Louis' baby so-called 'confirmation,' don't you think?


I think that the fact they said perrie and zayn broke up two weeks ago could be very important because if he comes back anytime soon because he left to have time for perrie then it doesn’t come across as an overhasty decision


OH MY is the zerrie split legit? If so HALLE-FREAKIN-LUJAH! oh my god this fandom has got me all sorts of fucked up.


Wait how are people saying the zerrie break up is bringing us closer to zayns return ??


so… ZERRIE break up.. what does it mean for the stunt.. endgame??zayn??zolo??


With zerrie being over, could this be a step forward to zaynie coming back sooner ?


I think now that zerrie is over, zayn really isn’t with modest.. (or maybe it could be just jakesy replacing zerrie just as sophiam replaced elounor)


If Zerrie ended weeks ago why didn’t she stop wearing her ring until just now? And does this mean the management switch is coming sooner than expected?


ZERRIE IS OVER


Zerrie is over.  2 fake relationships down, 1 fake baby and 1 fake quitting to go!

The fact that it happened with this timing after GMA is another indicator that Zayn’s news is being coordinated with the rest of 1D’s events.  This isn’t the first time this has happened.  

If you read the articles, it’s all “Poor, devastated Perrie” and Little Mix promo. They’re supposed to be coming to the US soon to promote the Black Magic single as far as I understand, so the timing makes perfect sense in that regard. 

The fact that they were supposed to have broken up 2 weeks ago just like Elounor is another repetition of patterns that points to recycling of stunts, meaning either the same old 1DHQ has a say or some other agency looks up to a terrible role model.  Anon #2 has an interesting point and I hope that’s part of why they did things that way.  I’m sure they needed to time it for Little Mix and 2 weeks ago wouldn’t have worked as well for them, but actions can have more than one reason.

Perrie didn’t stop wearing her ring because they wanted as much attention as possible on her up to the last second I would imagine.  They’ve never particularly cared about being sloppy.  Example: the edited/Zayn absent (still not sure which) BTS videos and commercials that contradict the narrative.

For the stunt, I’ve thought we were in endgame for awhile now.  The big news keeps happening one after another.  That’s the plan, that keeps them in the news, that keeps fans too busy to get a grip on things and spot the BS, and that means the narrative landscape changes every day.  

With that last point, it means they can quickly change things from a situation where it doesn’t seem like Zayn could possibly return to one where it makes perfect sense that he does.  Perrie being gone could count as removing one reason why he left although they’ve gone back on that narrative and the way they’re reporting it, it doesn’t really fit.  However, they can have just one small event and put a completely different spin on it later.  Example: this Zayn didn’t like 1D’s music detail being explicit is a brand new development.

Just the fact that this is one more big piece of news makes me feel like we’ve gotten a step closer to him returning, not further away.

This robron storyline is a cock tease once again Robert declaring that he loves Chrissie. People keep on saying Robron is a gay love story but sadly it is not. I also think Kate Oates is a homophobe two young gay male characters Aaron and Finn both handsome, young, and alone. Straight love is on a pedestal gay male love is inferior and second class. This is the anti gay message. Why can't Aaron and Finn have a loving gay relationship? Robert and Aaron are not endgame the show is anti gay.

I really don’t think the show is promoting an anti-gay message, and I’m usually quick to criticize stuff I think is damaging to the LGBTQIA community, so idk I’m just not seeing an anti-gay message with Rob, Chrissie, Finn, or Aaron.

For starters, the fact that they have two gay men–Finn and Aaron–and don’t have them automatically dating is amazing. They focused on how the characters would mesh rather than the fact that they both like men, so I feel like the characters are being treated with the same dignity straight characters get. They aren’t forcing anything just to fill a “gay storyline” quota or some other half-assed thing. I would find it lazy and insulting if Aaron and Finn were together long-term.

As far as Rob and Chrissie being together… Well, tbh, I find the portrayal of his sexuality refreshing since it’s so complex and not at all the standard “gay man married to a beard” storyline, which starts to feel like a recycled storyline shows use b/c they don’t wanna commit to anything bigger for their LGBTQIA characters. Right now, 95% of the signs say Robert is not gay; they say Robert is attracted to men and to women. So him being into both Chrissie and Aaron isn’t anti-gay, it’s pro-multisexual, and that’s super rad & rare. I’m hoping the show sticks with that b/c it’s really working for me right now. I love it. (tbh i find it really kind of shit to say that Robron’s gay love is invalidated by Robert loving a woman b/c that’s the kind of monosexism that bi/pan/etc men face on the daily so idk i just think maybe remember his love for Aaron isn’t watered down by any potential love for women he may have had)

I don’t see straight love (Chrobert) as on a pedestal at all. They’re like the model of a dysfunctional false couple. Money is on a pedestal in that relationship. He seems to only want her out of desperation, out of a need to belong, out of fear of being alone. The pleading today showed me that, and it didn’t tell me his love for Chrissie is more real/important than his love for Aaron. 

Robron is one of their most popular couples, lots of social media attention, winning awards, etc. Kate Oates knows the god damn ship name! I think we all know the show loves Robron and gives Robron lots of material. They’ve gotten WAY WAY WAY more screen time than the vast majority of straight couples get on Emmerdale. Their romance has already lasted longer than a lot of major ones, like Ross/Donna, Debbie/Ross, etc. Not every storyline for Robron is my favorite, but they get lots of storylines, so I can handle a few misses since there are so many hits. Considering how much material is specifically written for them, I literally can’t call it a cock tease. They’ve had an 8 month long affair–where is the tease in that? They are canonical. Not two weeks ago, Robert was confessing love to Aaron yet again, tears pooling in his eyes.

This is definitely a love story between two men, and it’s refreshingly complex for a storyline given to a gay couple.

i dont really know what to do...bc i know rationally that i should take a step back from fandom rn bc this is stressing me tf out..but that is so much easier said than done :/ i just want to see an endgame, somewhere and im not and it makes me v sad. im not even doubting larry its just like :/ :/

No, I get you 100%. I know Larry is real, that’s not even on the table, but them going to such great lengths to lie about something so serious is just upsetting. I think a big part of the problem is that as realistic as we try to be, we think our guys are better than this. We think they are above the lies and media manipulation that is rife in the entertainment business. And this mess really does raise the bar for celebrity fuckery.

But they are not above it.  They are playing along (poorly, but doing it nonetheless) and we are the ones upset about it. They KNOW what the final outcome is planned to be, so they’re able to be happy right now. We figure we know the endgame, but we don’t know anything for sure and the uncertainty is stressful.

Personally, I’m hanging my hat on the end of their Modest contract in December being the end of a lot of the fuckery, including the closet.  So I can probably hang on until then. But it’s hard. I was pretty dead-set on this past January being the beginning of new management, and I was wrong - though we do have good evidence that something big changed.  Still I’ve been here 8 months past when I would have thought I would after Bullshit 2.0 - and now we have Bullshit 3.0.

But whether this is - as I and others have theorized - the result of competing narratives from different players (i.e. Modest v Azoff), or whether this is Irving Azoff himself with some brilliant masterplan that will make SO MUCH SENSE when it’s all over, or Modest just being incompetent dumb fucks with thumb vices on the boys, we just don’t know right now.  This could be Louis’ big plan and Modest is trying to dance around it - who the fuck knows?!?!

But the fact that Harry is out there being a fluffy rainbow butterfly unicorn and is quite openly perceived as “not entirely straight” is such a fantastic thing.

And the fact that, today’s tense interview aside, Louis is incredibly happy and smiling all the time is also fantastic.

The only ones unhappy are the fans, which seems like REALLY bad PR/marketing, but at the same time, we love those guys - blatant media and emotional manipulation and all. So seeing them happy keeps us holding on.

I suppose it will work for a while longer - on me anyway.  If for no other reason than I’m out a few thousand dollars for a trip to London in September to see them and I’d rather enjoy it if I can.

So I’m working on not being sad and hoping for the best.  Here’s a great pic of Harry to help you not be sad either:

Its really disheartening to think that even if by some miracle we get some form of destiel in canon the writers are most likely going to end the show with dean and Sam dying, most likely cas as well so it's going to be really tragic either way :(

Hey there, Nonnie! Do you really think that the show will most likely end with Dean and/or Sam and/or Cas dying? I thought that was a Kripke move, but I don’t think that’s a Carver one. I really believe that the show has foreshadowed a better/happier ending, and for the sake of my own well-being, I’d rather continue believing that! (I hope I’m not mistaken).

SAM

I believe the Samelia thing in season 8 wasn’t as purposeless as we might think. After Jess (and Sarah and Madison), Sam kind of got the idea that love and a normal life weren’t really for him. I wouldn’t blame him for thinking that way considering every girl he likes ends up dead. However, in season 8, we got a Sam who actually had a “normal” life. A girlfriend. A picnic for his birthday. A birthday cake. A DOG. He was able to quit the family business. Unfortunately, he wasn’t in the best moment of his life because he was just running away from the painful reality (of having lost Dean). However, as he told Dean in 8x01: “I found something. Something I’ve… never had all my life.”

Sam left Amelia not because Dean was back but because her husband was back. The second time they parted ways (in 8x10) was because Amelia gave him a choice: “If you stay, against everything I believe in, I would be with you. But if you leave… don’t come back. I can’t have you with one foot in my life and one foot out there doing… whatever it is you do. That life of yours I have no idea about.” The second time he left her, it wasn’t because of her husband (he knew Amelia would choose HIM); it was because of Dean. He knew he had to choose between Amelia (the normal life he so much craves) and Dean (the life as a hunter). In 10x18, Sam told Charlie this: “I guess I really understand now that this is my life. I love it, but I can’t do it without my brother.”  We already know that between Amelia and Dean, Sam chose his brother, but that doesn’t mean Sam has stopped craving a normal life; he has just buried it for now. The fact that he says “I understand now that this is my life” sounds like someone who has resigned themselves, someone who’s simply gotten used to it in order not to disappoint Dean. According to Sam himself in 8x23, his greatest sin was how many times he let his brother down. He said he couldn’t do that again, so he became Dean. How? Dean got used to the life as a hunter because he didn’t want to disappoint his father. Sam finally got used to that life because he didn’t want to continue disappointing his brother. And so it goes the codependency cycle!

I firmly believe that Sam’s endgame is to have a normal life. That’s why we haven’t heard anything else about his desires in season 9 or 10. We already know what he wants, but we also know that he can’t get there. Not yet, at least.

DEAN

Dean’s case has been more difficult. For a very long time I thought that his endgame would be to continue being a hunter forever. That’s why season 10 and Dean’s personal arc was so important. It was in that season when we finally learned that Dean’s deepest desire is NOT to be a hunter. We saw a little bit of that in 9x07 when young Dean had a conversation with young Robin:

DEAN: […] My dad likes to move around a lot.

ROBIN: What’s your dad do?

DEAN: Boring stuff.

ROBIN: Do you like it?

DEAN: (shakes his head) NO. No, not really. But my dad expects me to follow in his footsteps. So I’ve kind of gotten used to it. (He seems resigned). […] I want to be a rock star, but… I also really like cars.

ROBIN: Being a mechanic seems rough.

DEAN: What? No, no. Not at all. Cars are freaking cool as hell. Fixing them is like … a puzzle, and the best part is when you’re done, they leave, and you’re not responsible for them anymore.

Over there we learned that deep in his heart, he didn’t want to be a hunter but got used to it. We also learned that he resented having to be responsible for Sam, but he got so used to it that he couldn’t really live his life without having to worry about and protect his little brother. Demon!Dean brought this up in 10x03 when he told Sam: “You notice I tried to get as far away from you as possible? Away from your whining, your complaining. I chose the King of Hell over you! Maybe I was just … tired of babysitting you. Or always having to yank your lame ass out of the fire since… Forever. Or maybe… Maybe it was the fact that my mother would still be alive if it wasn’t for you. That your very existence sucked the life out of my life!

Dean continued being a hunter to follow his daddy’s footsteps. He became Sam’s “father figure” because John always told him he had to protect Sammy. That was his job. He didn’t matter out of that responsibility. But Dean already knows all of that is his father’s fault. That’s what we learned from the rest of the conversation between Sam and Dean in 10x03:


SAM: This isn’t my brother talking.

DEAN: You never had a brother! Just an excuse for not manning up. But guess what: I quit.

SAM: No. No, you don’t. You don’t get to quit. We don’t get to quit in this family! This family is all we have ever had!

DEAN: Well, then, we got nothing.

SAM: Would you say that to Dad?

DEAN: Dad? Oh, there’s a prize. There’s a man who brainwashed us into wasting our lives fighting his losing battle!


Dean is finally aware that he’s never been Sam’s brother. He’s been his caretaker thanks to John Winchester. That’s why the song A single man tear (which is about Dean) in 10x05 says: “A single man tear, that’s all I’ll spare. I bury feelings, don’t show I care. Even though I am haunted, must be the man daddy wanted. Wish I could be as strong as Sam. Blaze my own trail, be my own man. But underneath this broken mask, it is my father, with all his wrath.”

Dean’s arc in the Carver era has been to clearly show us that Dean KNOWS he doesn’t like his life as a hunter. That was John’s influence. He KNOWS he doesn’t want to be Sam’s protector. That was John’s influence, too. He wishes he could be as strong as Sam because SAM LEFT. Sam went to Stanford. He quit the life. He didn’t care about disappointing John. Dean pulled Sam back in for a long while, but Sam was strong a second time. He quit the life after Dean got sent to Purgatory. He stopped looking for Dean. It hurt like hell; he said he felt like his “world imploded and came raining down on [him]” (8x06), but he was strong enough to realize that he could have a life that didn’t entirely depend on Dean or John or anyone else.

Dean finally LEARNED that protecting Sam and Sam protecting him above everything else was NOT GOOD. It was evil. That codependency they have ruins them and the people around them. He doesn’t want to be his brother’s keeper anymore, but he doesn’t want Sam to be his keeper either. That’s what we learned from his conversation with Sam in 10x23:

DEAN: Remember when we were in that church, making Crowley human, about to close the Gates of Hell? Well, you sure as hell were ready to die for the greater good then.

SAM: Yeah, and, Dean, you pulled me back.

DEAN: And I was wrong. You were right, Sam. You knew that this world would be better without us in it.

SAM: No, no, no, wait a second. You’re twisting my words here, Dean.

DEAN: Why? Because we – we track evil and kill it? The family business? Is that it? Look at the tape, Sam. Evil tracks us. And it nukes everything in our vicinity – our family, our friends. It’s time we put a proper name to what we really are and we deal with it.

SAM: Wait a second. We are not evil. Listen… We’re far from perfect, but we are good. That thing on your arm is evil, but not you, not me.

DEAN: I let Rudy die. How was that not evil? I know what I am, Sam. But who were you when you – when you drove that man to sell his soul… Or when you bullied Charlie into getting herself killed? And to what end? A-a good end? A just end? To remove the Mark no matter what the consequences? Sam, how is that not evil? I have this thing on my arm, and you’re willing to let the Darkness into the world.


Dean was ready to kill Sam to stop all this, to stop their codependency, but then Sammy gave Dean two pictures. He told Dean: “You’ll never, ever hear me say that you – the real you – is anything but good. But you’re right. Before you hurt… anyone else, you have to be stopped at any cost. I understand. Do it. Do me the honor.”

Once again Sam was stronger than Dean. He understood the point. He understood they couldn’t continue like this (sacrificing others to save each other), so he was willing to sacrifice his own life if that was needed. Dean realized that Sam understood. The fact that Sam stopped fighting meant that he was ready to let go, SOMETHING THAT DEAN HASN’T BEEN ABLE TO DO ALL HIS LIFE. Then he saw the pictures. Dean and Mary. Dean, Sammy and Mary. Family.

But John Winchester was NOT in the picture because his influence was OVER. Dean didn’t kill Sam, that’s true. But it was not in the name of codependency (he didn’t know Cas, Rowena and Crowley were about to rid him of the Mark of Cain). It was in the name of family, in the name of love, a healthy one… represented by Mary in the pictures.  That’s why I think that season 11 will give us a better relationship between Dean and Sam, one where they are brothers, not each other’s keepers.

All of this was necessary to be able to reach not only Sam’s endgame but also Dean’s, which by the way, we were given in 10x16:


Dean (to Sister Mathias): I guess I’m just wondering how somebody quits one life for something completely different and – and then believe in it so much.

Dean (to Father Delaney): You know, the life I live, the work I do… I pretty much just figured that that was all there was to me, you know? Tear around and jam the key in the ignition and haul ass until I ran out of gas. I guess I just thought sooner or later, I’d go out the same way that I live – pedal to the metal, and that would be it. […] Now, um… Recent… events, uh… make me think I might be closer to [death] than I really thought. And… I don’t know. I mean, you know, there’s – there’s things, there’s… people, feelings that I-I-I want to experience differently than I have before, or maybe even for the first time. […] I’m just starting to think that… maybe there’s more to it all than I thought.


In my opinion, Dean’s endgame will be to quit the life for something completely different where he’ll be able to experience things, people, and feelings differently than he has before or maybe even for the first time. It’s been a lot of work to take Dean in that direction. Dean, the best hunter ever, the one who always seemed to love the life, the family business. That’s why the Carver era was heavy in personal arcs and not in myth arcs. They had to reset Dean almost completely. This is our promise. Dean needs to survive to get his endgame. Just as Sam needs to be alive to get his. 

CAS

Cas’ endgame is still a work in progress, but a very clear one. He had to be reset the same as Dean. Cas loved Heaven and his brothers and sisters. Despite everything, he thought Heaven was home. It isn’t like that anymore. Cas has slowly begun to learn that home is where the heart is. Where is Cas’ home? What does he want? He’s been asked twice now about his endgame. In 9x06, when Cas said he wanted to live, Ephraim asked him: “But as what, Castiel? As an angel? or a man?” Even though it couldn’t be clearer than that, Metatron became more obvious in 10x18 when he asked Cas:


“Who are you now? Like, you’re obviously not an angel of the lord. And what about all of this ‘walking the earth like Kane from Kung Fu’ crap? Cleaning up heaven’s messes. How many more rogue angels are there out there? And what are you gonna do once you’re done with all that? Go back to heaven? Please. The angel formerly known as Hannah has restored order up top. Smoothest it’s run since God cut the ribbon on the pearly gates. So tell me, Castiel, truly, what is your mission now?”


When the next antagonist (the Darkness) is finally defeated, when the show finally reaches its final season and its final episodes, we’re going to be given an answer. Castiel will have to choose. Right now he’s indecisive. He calls himself people, but he’s not, as Rowena pointed out when she said in 10x22: “That’s like a fish that wants to fly or a dog that thinks he’s people.” When Cas said that he, in fact, is a lot like people, Rowena’s reply was “Keep telling yourself that, dear”. Meaning? Cas is not human! He acts like he is, but he isn’t. That’s why I firmly believe that Castiel’s endgame will be to choose humanity. That’s been his weakness all along, anyway.

In conclusion, I don’t think Cas, Dean or Sam are going to die. The show has made a great effort to reset the main characters and tell us what they want or where they wish they could go. Maybe I’m delusional, but I can’t help being optimistic. I hope this gives you some hope as well. Sorry for writing such a long thing!

lovelorn hector!!!! the trojan princes coming to pthia and hector being smitten by kind and cute as a button patroclus instead of paris to helen i'm

hahaha the reason why I took days to answer this was because I wrote a fic for it and I am trash

Pairings: Achilles/Patroclus, Hector/Patroclus

Rating: R

Seated next to Achilles with an imperious Peleus and an erratically moody Thetis upon the dais, I received a favorable view of the jostling crowd below. An abundant amount of wealthy Greek city-states and islands representatives had made the journey; kings, princes, and princesses from various places in Greece were to be seen - Demophon and Acamas of Athens, Menelaus of Sparta and his brother Agamemnon of Mycenae, Odysseus and Penelope of Ithaca, Diomedes of Argos, Agapenor of Arcadia, Idomeneus of Crete, and so many others.

Some leaders were stationed in Phthia for the sake of trading riches and political negotiations, some were there for the sake of presenting prospective brides for Achilles, golden prince and marvelous leader and warrior as he was, with divine blood and a heroic fate. The latter reason worried me still; it was ominous fear and exasperation I felt for Thetis’ resentment of our relationship, her constant strive to control and manipulate her son, the measures she could take to separate us, and the inevitable loneliness that Achilles’ future wife would feel with his attentions, both romantic and lustful, spent only for me.

I do not doubt Achilles’ love and passion for me, even now our hands subtly held each other’s and his eyes would occasionally focus on me to see what I was thinking. I adored this about him, about us - our intimacy, memorizing each other’s faces like maps and knowing each sentiment, each worry just merely from the downwards glance of our eyes, the twitches of our noses, the strained tug of our smiles. It was a level of adoration he never felt for Deidameia.

Nevertheless, I feared the future: it was extremely common for two male youths to be adjoined in a sexual (and sometimes romantic) bond through comradeship, but perhaps such a relationship was frowned upon when they aged. Perhaps Achilles would tire of me in our older years, discarding my love for the sake of his reputation.
