So I was listening to Who Lives, Who Dies, Who Tells Your Story, and I had a (literal) revelation. Eliza, our cinnamon roll, never really mentions her story anywhere until the very end of the entire musical. She puts everyone else before her. For example, in Burn, she says that he (Hamilton) has ruined “our lives”. Not “my life”, even though she’s the one who’s hurt most out of the whole situation. She still cares about Hamilton and his precious legacy. Then later in the show, in the song that sparked (haha get it cause Burn… Sorry, anyway) this, she literally tells everyone else’s story first, other than saying she puts herself back in the narrative. First Hamilton, then Angelica, Washington. “I speak out against slavery,” trying to add to Jefferson’s story. And then the orphanage, which is more about the children’s future legacies. Only after she mentions everyone else does she acknowledge her life, her legacy, her story. I just wanted to address that. Eliza is such a selfless cinnamon roll.
About Dean hitting on Daphne, Misha said at Chicon that Dean "gets a little randy" in the Scooby ep... I just feel a bit disappointed, like the writers knew Destiel wouldn't be canon by ep 16 so they wrote that in. I try to be positive most of the time about it being endgame and that I shouldn't worry about some random hook up Dean has, but I just don't see how this is a good thing if they want to make the GA aware of Destiel. Not to sound super negative, I just wanted to know what you think.
2. Hey! I don't know if you heard about this but apparently Dean is going to flirt with Daphne in the Scooby Doo episode… What are you thoughts on it?
People worry about random hook ups. I haven’t been around since before s12 but I know the meta writers say it happens every time.
Look at the gold in s12, we had 2 of them and they both were significant in that one was almost like it never happened (it probably didn’t and Dean was way more into riding Larry, she seemed really annoyed that he blew her off) and the other was a huge omelette metaphor for settling for something else cos you can’t have what you really want (is Cas bacon or the pancakes? Hmm either covered in maple syrup is good so…).
Then we had the gold of 12x11. Which was all about WHO DEAN REALLY IS DEEP DOWN.
AND IT HAD A FREAKING SCOOBY DOO REFERENCE (they knew they were going Scooby Doo in s13 at this point as they recorded it at the end of s12). AND IT’S A FREAKING PHALLIC JIZZ SQUIRTING SCOOBY DOO REFERENCE.
AT THE EXACT POINT WHEN DEAN THOUGHT HE MIGHT BE HAVING A 3-WAY WITH A HOT DUDE (he didn’t know it was his brother) AND A HOT LADY. AFTER HE HAD JUST RIDDEN LARRY AND IN A WHOLE EPISODE THAT SHOWED THAT HE IS REPRESSED AND HIDES A SIDE OF HIMSELF THAT IS BLATANTLY BISEXUAL AND LOVES DORY.
AN EPISODE THAT CAS COULDN’T POSSIBLY BE IN BECAUSE HE WOULD HAVE GIVEN THE GAME AWAY I MEAN JEEZ COULD YOU IMAGINE? HE WOULD HAVE BEEN ALL OVER CAS LIKE A RASH.
I’m am so not worried. If anything it’s a momentary regression to show a blatant change in Dean now if he does jokingly flirt with her then is rebuffed or backs out or whatever but really it’s probably a whole host of things. THEY ARE NOT GOING TO DO A DEAN/DAPHNE ANIMATED SEX SCENE OMG CAN YOU IMAGINE. It’s all about the character growth and the metaphor it stands for and what it tells us about DEAN if they do do this and jeez, this is all off the back of some throwaway comments when Jensen was asked specifically by some dude bro interviewer and laughed it off like yeah haha, “sparks fly” (which everyone associates with Cas anyway since 4x01 LMAO) and I haven’t seen Misha’s comment but man… this is probably just SO blown out of proportion.
But ok… let’s say they DO go there cos I think it’s actually a good idea re: exposition of Dean’s character growth.
Daphne is the epitome of Dean’s (old) fantasies.
She’s sweet natured, a cartoon so is reminiscent of his childhood, unthreatening. It could be so interesting and I’m actually looking forward to what they do here if they do, given how much they’re moving his character forwards now.
She’s also the badass fighter (occasionally, when the time is needed) who is in love with the tall blond leader of the group and is his emotional support…
Imma leave this here.
Character growth wise… man. We just had 12x22. Dean has been letting down his facade slowly for years and now it’s come crashing down. We know he is going to be A TOTAL MESS in 13x01 and most of this is about CAS. We know Cas does come back before this episode so… we will see SO MUCH of the fall out of Dean’s climax in 12x22 in his character growth in season 13. I CAN’T WAIT.
If we do have flirting it’s likely flirting that is backed out of, maybe Fred and Dean clash because they’re quite similar sometimes or Daphne actually flirts more with Cas and we get animated jealous dimples of discontent (Chuck I wish for this) or she flirts with Sam and it’s hilarious or whatever - who freaking knows.
I for one am not getting my panties in a twist and am actually really excited for what they could do with this for his character as I think it’s a part of his story in showing how he’s changed, because she is the epitome of his old fantasies, not a regression.
I mean have you SEEN seasons 1 - 12?! If they regress Dean’s character and he stays regressed and goes into dude bro no homo land now all hope is lost for any writer, showrunner or producer trying to write a character story on the CW. They clearly have no control or any clue what they’re freaking doing and are writing scripts with crayons.
It makes NO SENSE.
THIS THOUGH ^^^ THIS MAKES ALL THE SENSE WITH REGARDS TO WHAT THEY HAVE BUILT SO FAR OVER MORE THAN A DECADE AND ARE NOW BRINGING OUT INTO THE TEXT TO MAKE IT OBVIOUS FOR THE GA.
THIS IS PART OF THE EXPOSITION RE: WHO DEAN USED TO PROJECT TO BE AND WHO HE REALLY IS.
So yesterday…I had no plans of having a cookout but figured I mine as well break in the new crib and have some people over. My cousins Ryan & @iamtaylormichelle came through with Baby Cris, then loud ass @danaifromtheway came along with mean ass @ethiopianzen (whom of which gave me the finger cause I fussed at her about being late with the ribs 😂).
There are way more pics….I’m just gonna post them later lol kinda waiting for my sister to drop my nephew but he’s being stubborn…
Feliz cumpleaños, espero que la pases súper bien, que tengas un gran día, y que todo lo que intentes se pueda cumplir. Happy birtday! I really hope you have a great day and that everything you try to do it can be done. (The firts part is in spanish 'cause it's my mother language and i wanna do it )
So @callmearcturus Has an awesome fic A Spark A Flame A Fire that left it kinda ambiguous what styles Derse and Prospit are based on so @cityinthesea and I started talking about Byzantine style Prospit and Gothic Derse and I ended up getting carried away with it haha
