At the end of 12x22, we had that beautiful moment where the Winchester family was reunited and had forgiven one another their transgressions. They all go in for a massive family hug, and it’s fucking beautiful. But…something was off. Take a look at these faces during the hug.
One of these faces is not like the others. Can you pick out which one?
When I first saw this moment, my gut reaction was “Aww, Dean, after everything you just went through, your family is together! Why aren’t you smiling and happy like Sam and Mary?!”
Then my brain came to a screeching halt, because I knew the answer and I was shocked it hadn’t immediately occurred to me.
We’re still missing a Winchester, one who is very important to Dean.
In fact he mentioned earlier in the episode that, like Mary, he had just found this person who is now lost.
He got Mary back, but it’s not enough to bring him that joy that Sam and Mary seem to have here.
He is still pining. He still needs Cas. And his expression in that moment tells us both of these things very loudly and very clearly.
-keith and lance show up to school in the same outfit
-lance is rly extra abt it
-probably demands a “who wore it best?” vote
-keith is amused and fond and this both frustrates and flusters lance
-lance goes to the lost and found and pulls on a sweatshirt so they’re no longer matching
-its dorky as hell and has a robot lion from some 80s cartoon on it
-its keiths sweatshirt
-he doesnt know this
-when he comes to the next class wearing it keiths heart does lots of flips and he turns bright red
-lance sits down next to him and grins
-“haha now we’re not matching anymore ur plan to humiliate me has failed”
-keith cannot speak bc lance is wearing his clothes and he looks rly cute and it feels so domestic and his gay heart can’t take it
-“i was rly lucky they had this in the lost and found i didnt wanna be stuck looking like i was copying u all day. also whoever owned this smells rly good which is a plus seriously take a whiff of this. think i can get their number lol”
-keith.exe has crashed
-they run into hunk after class and he’s like “hey guys! oh lance why are u wearing keiths hoodie?”
-keith buries his face in his hands and groans
-lance blushes all the way down to his toes
-rip in fucking pieces

Dancing with the Stars!au where Bitty switched to dancing after having to give up figure skating and now he’s like an alternate dance coach or something. Jack goes on the show during the off season as a Georgia-approved attempt to make him seem more human and less robot. It works partially. He’s just as intense as he is on the ice but he’s not as talented and clips of him stepping on his partner’s toes and getting chirped for it seem to doing their job if what he can glean from the internet is accurate. He was originally paired with a girl but half way through the season she accidentally hurts something and Bitty was the first person they could get to fill her place for the next episode. Jack isn’t out but Bitty is and as long as Jack doesn’t mind dancing with a guy Bitty is okay taking the girl’s role. Maybe this will be the exposure he needs to get his own contestant next season. Either way they end up working together for an episode and they light it up. Bitty reworks the routine both to fit him and into something Jack isn’t struggling to do and it’s his best dance score-wise to date. Before his scores were passable but weren’t likely to get him through to the final couple of weeks but with the way he danced with Bitty he could go all the way. Naturally after a night like that when they try and find him a replacement female partner he says no and that he’d rather stick with Bitty. This is only partially due to his scores and more to do with the fact that he actually likes Bitty rather than his previous partner. They got along fine but there wasn’t that spark of connection that Jack has with Bitty. So Bitty stays with Jack for the rest of the season and they light it up. Bitty has a knack for devising devilishly simple routines that show off all of Jack’s best qualities and his hard earned dancing skills without being beyond his level and allowing the audience to connect with him on an emotional level. Which is a feat considering this is Jack we’re talking about. Bitty is also one of the best dancers that Jack has ever seen and he’s constantly impressed by what Bitty can do on his own when Jack isn’t holding him back. Needless to say they make it all the way to the finale while at the same time falling in love with each other. Bitty maybe has the never fall for a straight boy while providing interview footage though the editors thankfully cut that part out. At the end of the show, Jack and Bitty say goodbye and Jack makes noises about getting Bitty to a Falconers game once the season starts but both of them are pretty sure they’re not gonna see each other again. They say bye for a final time after one last late night practice and Jack heads out to bed while Bitty stays to just practice one last thing but on his way out Jack realizes just how much he cares for Bitty and then he runs back into the room and kissing happens. And then the next day they have to dance in the finale and it’s a thing and they’re on fire and they don’t kiss on stage cause public but it’s a very close thing. And look, idk if they win b/c I wanna be realistic but they probably win b/c Jack can never have enough silverware. And then they both go home and date and everything is good.
I fell in love with @thegreatclodauthority‘s White Diamond and I really liked her headcanon of White Pearl being both mute and blind. After wondering “how does White Pearl see the world then?” for a while, here’s a visual representation of what my brain came up with.
I also made a version with sunglasses because their power is so strong that even White Pearl can sense it or something idk
I feel like there might be this sort if unspoken agreement among the Kirkwall crew to always point out nearby cats if Anders is in the party
Hawke does it because they care about their friend/lover and know how much the little moments of freedom and happiness mean to him. They also know the stories, about Pounce, and Mr. Wiggums before him, that make the mage’s borderline unhealthy affinity for cats suddenly completely understandable. And if he looks completely fucking adorable while petting the animals with a big smile on his face, well, that’s just the icing on the cake
Varric does it because even though he believes there is absolutely nothing dignified about a grown man cooing at small, furry creatures that usually seem mostly disinterested in the attention, he knows how much stress the mage is under and wants nothing more than for him to just relax for once. And hey, Blondie deserves some moments where he can just enjoy the simple things in life and be as completely undignified as he pleases
Merrill not only likes pointing them out, but often joins the healer in his apparent endeavour to pet every cat in Thedas. She loves them too, even if she can’t afford one of her own, and petting them makes her happy. Not as happy as it makes Anders, but it’s always nice when she can see him smile for once instead of always being so sad, and it gives them something pleasant to talk about for a change
Fenris does it not because he actually cares at all, no, of course not, why the hell would he care about the mage’s happiness? It does tend to shut him up, though, trading the rants about mage rights for a string of increasingly strange and nonsensical endearments that are still somehow far less irritating. Or, at least, that’s the reason he always gives when questioned, vehemently denying any possibility of kindness as a motivation
Aveline gives a huff as she points out the nearest cat, looking very much the same as a parent of a child who has just spotted a particularly interesting object to play with and is now begging for permission to go do just that. She may not be his biggest fan, but this bizarre group of friends Hawke has put together is the closest thing to family she has now, and Aveline takes care of her own, difficult and irritating mages included
Isabela does it because he enjoys it, so why not? Sure, he could have far more interesting pursuits than petting small balls of fluff, but hell, if it makes him happy, he deserves it. The poor guy never gets a chance to really lighten up anymore. Besides, she can’t deny that some of those cats are damn cute, and sometimes she joins him and Merrill, sharing stories about the mousers she used to have on her ship
There are ten beer bottles sitting on his kitchen counter.
All of them are empty, lined up in rows of three with the odd man out lying on its side. He spins this one around, the label blurring as he leans his hip against the granite countertop.
The countertop they picked out together, not so long ago. Dark grey, modern and stylish, just like she wanted.
Around and around the green bottle spins until his eyes can’t take it anymore. He throws the bottle in the garbage can instead of the recycle bin. Partly because he’s almost a full case of beer deep and wasn’t really paying attention but also because she always insisted that they recycle as much as they could.
“It’s better for the environment,” he muses out loud to himself, his words slurring as he starts chucking the remaining beer bottles into the garbage, one by one.
She’s not here to yell at him anyways, so why the fuck should he care.
There are voicemails waiting for him when he wakes up the next morning.
“Bellamy, it’s your sister. What in the hell are you doing not answering your phone for days? Call me back!!”
“Bell? It’s Jasper. Just wanted to check up on you, man. Let me know how you’re doing.”
“Yo, It’s Murphy. Fuck that girl, let’s get drunk.”
“Hey, it’s Monty. I’m sure everyone is calling you but…we’re worried about you. Please let someone know if you’re okay.”
“Bell, honey? It’s mom. Please call me when you get this, your sister and I are worried about you. Love you.”
“Blake, it’s Miller. Octavia is freaking out man, hasn’t stopped calling me since yesterday. I know you’re hurting but…just please call someone back. Later.”
“Mr. Blake, it’s Professor Stanley. I just wanted to let you know that I received your email and am sorry to hear you won’t be able to speak in my class this week. Hope we can schedule something again soon.”
“God damn it, Bellamy Blake! If you don’t call me back, I’m going to tell mom about all the stupid shit you did in high school. And we both know you don’t want that hellfire to rain down upon you. Call. Me. Back!”
“Hey….Bell. It’s me. Look, I know we said we weren’t going to call each other but…I just wanted to say that I’m sorry for the way that we ended things. I know it was for the best but…I just…please don’t pull away from everyone. They all love you so much. And so do I. I’m sorry.”
He deletes all of them but the last one, sets his phone on that fucking grey countertop and hits the speaker button.
“….They all love you so much. And so do I.”
Her voice is broken but so is his heart so he listens to it a few more times until he feels like breaking his phone.
