12x03 - 12x09 Dean is illogically pissy with Cas for teaming up with Crowley.
12x15 - Dean is illogically pissed that Cas is looking into Angel killings. Again.
Dean is believed to be Castiel’s weakness and mirrored as his love interest by Ishim.
Dean would rather put himself in danger from Ishim than risk danger to Cas.
Dean isn’t angry that Cas cares about them so much he put himself in danger, he is worried.
Cas says I love you while avoiding eye contact with anyone. The camera pans only to Dean.
Cas says I love all of you looking at Sam then finally a lingering stare at Dean.
The camera pans to Dean. His lip wobbles for the second time that day, the first being when Cas told him he was dying.
Dean threatens Crowley, Sam and Dean both risk themselves to try to save Cas.
Dean can’t watch Cas in his final moments and looks like he may even be praying.
Crowley saves Cas, looks to Dean and says ‘you’re welcome’.
Dean tells Cas they’re going home.
Mary is the reason Cas almost died. For the colt. Which she didn’t admit to when they were looking for a cure for Cas. Which Sam used to kill the Alpha.
Dean doesn’t know all this.
Cas leaves home ‘for the greater good’ and Dean is pissy about it. Again. Undertones of worry re: end of 12x10.
Meanwhile Dean thanks Crowley sincerely for saving Cas.
Bonus Dean focused 'things that are important’:
Dean canonically is underneath it all a sweet, soft man who is kind to Rowena, loves Disney films and cartoons, riding Larry, is up for 'live skinemax’ and is still a badass hunter even with no memories.
His facade has been coming down small piece by small piece all season.
We have heard NO(?) rock music since ‘Rock never dies’ - interesting metaphor.
Cas and Crowley are the only main characters who haven’t lied to Dean’s face this season.
Dean is an excellent lie detector and strategist and generally reads people very well…
This is like 4 episodes worth of stuff guys. This season is intense.
I found out today that the person who posted the original story line of Epic Mickey 2, before it was rewritten because of time constraints, deleted their blog without a warning. Though I don’t know them personally, I hope they are ok and things are going well for them.
That being said, I decided torepost the orginal over here since the post is no longer available.I do not take any credit for finding this.all that credit should go to McBasilRocks, who unfortunately I can not link due to being deactivated. I had to seriously dig to recover this, and I decided to repost it here before something happened and it was lost completely.
When I say that this was the original plot, I mean that it was the VERY original plot. And this wasn’t fan made either- as explained in the post, this was found while digging through the Wikipedia page for Epic Mickey, and was taken down by DISNEY for leaking prior to the game’s release.
Anyways; here’s the post, word-for-word, about the very very original plot of Epic Mickey 2:
This is your friendly early morning reminder that when Rukia Kuchiki encountered hollow Ichigo her first instinct wasn’t anything in the vicinity of fear for herself
The woman who has every reason to be irrationally terrified of weird shinigami-hollow hybrids
The woman who had to kill her idol/mentor/first love because he’d become a godawful fusion of shinigami and hollow
The woman who carried that kill around as a burden and trauma for half her life
That Rukia Kuchiki
Wasn’t scared in the slightest when she was confronted with hollow Ichigo
No, instead she was worried for him.
Her. First. Instinct. Was to be worried FOR HIM.
And if that doesn’t speak volumes about how much she trusts Ichigo and how much faith she has in his abilities I don’t know what else does she trusts him to know what he’s doing she trusts him not to lose a grip on himself she absolutely trusts that he would NEVER harm her she has so much faith in his abilities to control the hollow because that’s the kind of man he is in her heart and I just ugh that trust is so beautiful and they’re so beautiful and they just need to get married and have beautiful babies and I just– just– *cries and cartwheels into the sun*
hi, so I was coming home from work today and thinking about nothing in particular, as you do, when suddenly the idea popped into my head - Steve and Bucky as Achilles and Patroclus (respectively). So of course I had to come straight here and ask - do you happen to know if that particular AU exists in any way, shape, or form for them? (I've shipped them forever, but just recently stepped back into the fandom and it's a little overwhelming.) [1/2]
Okay BUT. BUT. DUDE. Here is what Achilles does in the Iliad:
loses his temper after Agamemnon is mean to him and refuses to fight anymore
whines about it
keeps sulking about it for literally two-thirds of the poem
even after Agamemnon sends him a really generous apology gift
it’s the principle of the thing
(meanwhile the Greek allies are getting massacred)
(and Achilles is fine with that because it just shows how tremendously awesome he is, nyah nyah you guys can’t manage without me)
finally reluctantly agrees to let his best friend go out to fight dressed in Achilles’ armour in order to put some heart into the Greek side…
…thus getting his best friend killed
switches from ‘self-pity’ to ‘vengeful rampage’ and, yeah, avenges Patroclus
and then defiles and mistreats the helpless corpse of his murdered enemy in a truly disgusting way because it turns out killing the man who killed your friend does not actually make you feel better about your friend being dead or undo the poor choices that led to this outcome who knew
[I omit the bullet point about how this all gets resolved because this started out as an MCU post and I can get pretty worked up about Iliad 24]
All I’m saying is that if I had to pick an Avenger to play the role of this whiny egotistical asshole whose fancy armour gets people killed, there is I think a more obvious choice.
Just think about Tony sulking in his tent while everyone begs him to rejoin the fight. Think how much he enjoys the sulking. Almost as much as he enjoys the people pandering to his ego.
Think about Rhodey slowly losing patience, watching their people get massacred, until he finally begs Tony to just - fine, don’t fight. But let him borrow the armour, because he can’t just sit around and do nothing while this happens.
Think about how much of a target the armour makes him for the other side.
Think of the look on Tony’s face when he realises what he’s done.
My pick for the Steve character in an epic cycle AU would actually be the Trojan prince Aeneas! He escapes the destruction of Troy, and he eventually arrives in a brave new world, where he becomes the symbol of all that’s great about being a Roman…
Except Aeneas would rather have died at Troy. He lost everything that mattered in the most terrible war the world had ever seen - and then he was forced to keep going. Fate never gives him a choice. He does his duty. He serves his country. Ultimately his country is all he has left - and it’s not even the country he knew.
The Aeneid even includes a variation on the Achilles & Patroclus story, so you could keep that element if you wanted it. It’d fit comics canon better than the movies. Aeneas takes responsibility for a brave young hero called Pallas and acts as his mentor; then Pallas dies horribly in battle and Aeneas is very upset.
