It’s been almost 9 months, and 340 posts. Thank you so, so much to the incredible Reylo fandom and family. Mod Briar ( @thewayofthetrashcompactor) and I have had a blast creating funny and poignant incorrect quotations, as well as reading and sharing your submissions. A huge thank you to every single one of you who’s liked, reblogged, and/or submitted an incorrect Reylo quote! We are so grateful to you all.
For those unaware, Gimp is a free editing program that’s a great alternative to Photoshop for those who don’t have the money to purchase it, or for those who can’t or don’t want to download it illegally. Though it doesn’t have quite as many bells and whistles as its counterpart, it can still be used to create awesome stuff! As a Gimp user myself, I thought it might be helpful to share some of my favorite resources. Nothing here is mine, so be sure to like the original posts if you find them helpful!

Listen to me. Your name – your name is Mary Sandra Campbell, okay? You were born December 5, 1954, to Samuel and Deanna Campbell. Your father, he bounced around a lot for, uh, work, and you bounced right along with him, and you ended up in Lawrence, Kansas….. March 23, 1972, you walked out of a movie theater – “Slaughterhouse-Five.” You loved it, and you bumped into a big Marine and you knocked him flat on his ass. You were embarrassed, and he laughed it off, said you could make it up to him with a cup of coffee. So, you went to, uh, Mulroney’s and you talked and he was cute and he knew the words to every Zeppelin song, so when he asked you for your number, you gave it to him, even though you knew your dad would be pissed. That was the night that – that you met – John Winchester. August 19, 1975, you were married… in Reno. Your idea. A few years later, I came along, then Sammy.– Dean
12x01 “Keep Calm And Carry On - Winchester Family History
I need a warrior and I refuse to settle for anything less. I need someone who will take my hand when the hurricane hits. Someone who will grab my hand and say take a deep breath and pull me off a cliff with them while we land in the ocean beneath us to avoid the troubles behind us. I need someone who is strong enough to allow me to take his hand and guide him when he is uncertain of what to next. Someone whose ego isn’t too big to run into my arms when the weight of the world is on their shoulders and allow me to keep them in my safe embrace till their fears subside. I need a warrior, someone who can handle the angel and the devil inside me. Someone who looks at me and know that I carry a hurricane within me and who is confident and capable enough to calm the wild thing hidden deep within me.
How do you not like the Internet? That’s like saying, ‘I don’t like things that are convenient. And easy. I don’t like having access to all of mankind’s recorded discoveries at my fingertips. I don’t like light. And knowledge.
But!!!! I’m going to need you guys to message me if you are SERIOUSLY considering buying one. If I get enough people that want them I can do costume shirts with your favorite quote or fandom reference. The shirts will be around $10-$20 each. The things that will be on the shirts right now are going to be..
“Keep Calm and Carry On Simon Snow”
“Chapter 61 support group”
“And Im hopelessly in love with him”
And “Alister crowley, Im living a charmed life”
And if I have enough time I’ll make a “fucking numpties” shirt.
Don’t let the rains of life well up into a pool in which you drown. Make time to keep your rainspouts clear and freely flowing, allowing the cool water to cleanse you and keep on moving, carrying the debris on down to the ocean to be disbursed.
