12x14 “The Raid” “How about you’re just trying to be a mom.”
God, I love this moment and it hurts. Because of course Dean just wants her to be a mom, would love for her to be just as he always envisioned her, but she’s not. And damn if that’s not painful to realize. More than that though, I think for Dean getting Mary back wasn’t just about getting back the mom he always hoped her to be, but rather gaining something he never had since her death and that is indeed childhood. He may not be a child and kid anymore age wise, but as we know somehow Dean managed to preserve a little bit of this boyish-ness and being a kid at heart. To me getting Mary back in that regard to Dean may have even counted as a regaining of childhood as an adult. So of course that’s jut my personal impression/headcanon, but when thinking about it in this way Dean’s line is even sadder, because in a way it must feel like he lost his mom and his childhood a second time around. And damn if that’s not painful, because he is telling the truth plain and simple, he never was a kid… ;___;
“Come on, Y/n! Get up!” Theo shouts as he injects a needle into your neck. You gasp for air. You get up and look around. Hayden, Corey, Josh and Tracy.
“I’m your Alpha now.” Theo says before walking away. The other four slowly follow him. You take a look around. The Nemeton, surrounded by dead bodies.
“Y/n, if you don’t come quick, you’re gonna get lost.” You shiver at the sound of Theo’s voice. You remembered how you died, and Theo came in last minute. He knew the Dread Doctors all along.
You ran behind Corey.
“No, I’m not a chimera. I just died by the Dread Doctors.” Corey nods.
The six of you continue walking, but then Theo allows you to go home. Which you did.
When you got home, you sneaked up to your room, before lying on your bed.
“Oh bed, how I have missed you!” You say.
“Y/n? sweetie? Is that you?” You perk up at voice of your mom. Melissa pokes her head and grins.
“Oh my god! Y/n! You’re home!” You get up to hug her.
“Mom, I missed you.”
“I missed you too, sweetheart. Oh you must be tired, go get some rest.” She kisses your forehead before leaving. You snuggle up with your pillows, falling to sleep.
You walk into school after a few days of rest and everyone stops to star at you. You look for your friends, and see Stiles at his locker. You were about to call him, but he looks at you, and walk the other way. Confused, you head to class. But you bump into Scott.
“Scott.” You say
“What? You’re back? Now? Great.” He says sarcastically before leaving. You stand in shock at what your own brother just said to you. You spot Liam down the corridor.
“Liam! Wait!” You say. He turns to you but continues walking. You catch up to him and grab his arm, making him pull away.
“What’s going on? Why is everyone looking at me like that? Why are you looking at me like that?” He gives you a cold look.
“Go ask Theo.” He says before storming off. You tear up a bit before heading in the same direction.
You take a seat next to Corey, who senses that you are sad.
“Are you okay?” You shake your head.
“Everyone has been looking at me weirdly.” You put your head on the table.
“What did I do wrong?” Corey puts a hand on your head.
“Maybe you should ask Mason.” He suggests. After class, you walk with Corey to the next class. Theo walks up to you.
“Hey Y/n, hey Corey.” He says. Corey gives him a small nod.
“how are you guys feeling?”
“A bit overwhelmed and sad.” You say.
“Babe, why are you so sad?” Theo smiles.
“Everyone is ignoring me. Only Corey talks to me.” Theo’s expression changes.
“Princess, maybe they are just stressed about the new danger in town.” He states before the bell rings. Theo kisses you before heading to a different direction.
Down the hallway, Liam narrows his eyes, watching you as you talked with Theo and Corey. When Theo kisses you on the cheek, Liam hands balls up into fists. Mason notices.
“Dude, calm down. It’s just a kiss.” Mason says, pushing Liam to their next class. Which was with you.
You sit down at your usual spot and Corey sits beside you. Mason walks in and sits with you guys.
“Mason, Do you know why everyone is looking at me like that?” Masons looks at you with confusion.
“You don’t know why? I mean, I would get that Corey would ask because he was dead, But why you?”
“She was dead too. What are you talking about?” Corey tells him. Mason widen his eyes.
“What? You died?! Theo told Scott you left them for him and that you never want to see them again. They all got angry that you abandoned them.”
“I didn’t, I got kidnapped by the doctors and they injected me with something. I’m not even a chimera! Why would they even think that I would betray him?”
“Wait so you don’t know that Liam and Scott had a huge fight during the Super moon and almost killed Scott?”
“What? Scott died?”
“He almost died. He lost his heartbeat for like 15 minutes but then your mom got him to wake up. It was sad, I watched Liam clawing at Scott for a few seconds and I was shook.”
“Liam killed Scott?”
“Technically it was Theo. He manipulated Liam into killing Scott, and then he’ll kill Liam who would have alpha status so he can be the alpha.” Hearing those words, you can’t help but grow a bit dizzy.
“Y/n, are you okay?” The dizziness stops. You nod. Liam and Hayden walk in together, sitting beside you guys.
“Hey Hayden.” You say. She nods and smiles at you. The dizziness comes back again.
“Sir, can I take Y/n to the office, she looks a bit pale.” The teacher nods at Corey. You and Corey stand up, heading out the door.
“Are you sure you can go home on your own?” Corey asks once you sign out. You nod.
“It’s a bit better now. Thanks for taking care of me Cor.” You smile faintly, before hugging him. The two of you part ways. You head outside, where Theo stood.
“Princess? You look sick, are you sick? You want a ride home?” You shake your head and take a step forward. The dizziness grows.
“Actually fine.” You step into Theo’s truck. You lean on the window with an emotionless expression as Theo drives you home.
“Princess are you okay? Why aren’t you talking?”
“I know the things you did Theo. I didn’t want to believe it but I have to.” You mumble out. Theo sighs, but doesn’t speak again. The rest of the drive was slient.
Heroes of Olympus Preference: How They Cuddle With You
requested by perry-gallifrey ; thank you for requesting this! I absolutely LOVE doing Heroes of Olympus/ Percy Jackson things! We are now best friends.
Percy was in love with the outdoors. He loved sitting outside and just absorbing the beauty of the camp. How the stars shone in the rain-less sky, how the Demeter cabin had the beautiful flowers, and how your eyes glistened in the starlight. Jackson loved cuddling with you outside the Poseidon cabin, on the dock, your legs just dangling off the edge, barely grazing the water. You’d lean into him, sharing body heat, and just enjoy your night together.
Jason loved you, and you saw it in his actions, attitude, and personality towards you. He loved watching you go to sleep, watching as your eyes slowly close, the way your body quickly tensed up, then relaxed, your shoulders dipping once more. After he knew you were asleep, or at least comfortable, he would lay with you, making sure not to move your body in the slightest. He’d hold your hand so that in the middle of the night, he knew you were right bye his side.
Leo was a total dipshit when it came to cuddling. You two would probably be nicely watching a movie when he’d randomly slap you with a pillow. It would ruin the moment, yes, but it started something all the time… a pillow war. When the high of you two fighting was done and you were all tired out, you’d ask him to cuddle, where he’d say yes, due to the adorable puppy dog face you gave him. Who could resist that? He’d hold you like his mom used to hold him; tight, but loose, rubbing soothing circles on your back.
Frank was hands down the best cuddler out of all the guys. Thanks to his shape-shifting abilities, he’d turn into an adorable puppy and sit with you. You absolutely adored it when he turned into it, but you also liked it slightly better when he was big ‘ol Franky. As soon as you would say the words I’m tired, or It’s getting late, he’d transform back into his normal self and hold onto you, not ever wanting to let you go.
Nico di Angelo
Little di Angelo would cuddle you the tightest. First, he would be completely and utterly surprised that you would even go for a freak like him. He would always ask you that one question, but you’d correct him, saying that you were the one surprised that he would go for a freak like you. Next, he’d hold you super tight. He did it for the fear of losing you was too strong. He didn’t want to lose you like he lost Bianca, or his mom. You were the only important girl left in his life.
Spot can’t cook actual food to save his life but he really loves baking
He use to do it a lot with his mom before she passed away so it’s kind of like a security thing. The bakery makes him feel save.
It’s owned by Race’s grandma and Spot just started working there a few months ago.
Race use to help out when he was younger but now that his grandma is getting older he came back to help her again
Spot is a sweetheart when it comes to Race’s grandma because she reminds him of his mom
At first Spot was SO annoyed because the environment was really peaceful and cozy and here comes boisterous Racetrack Higgins
One day they have a flour fight that started out of spite but then they realize how ridiculous they are and they’re smiling and laughing
Over the months Spot and Race get closer and Spot is introduced to Race’s friend group and comes over his house often for family dinners
There’s not a moment where they confess their love, instead one day they’re baking late at night with music playing softly in the background and Spot gets so lost in Race’s smile and laugh that he just leans in and kisses him
They get so wrapped up in each other that they forget about the cookies and burn them lmao
After a year or so Race’s gram passes away. They’re both heartbroken to the point where they close the bakery until a few days after the funeral
but Spot can’t step foot in the bakery for a few weeks
because he got so close that it’s like he lost his mom twice (and he’s kind of cursing himself for it because he never gets close and now he’s hurt)
Race inherits the building of course so he continues with the business. He goes to Spot to check up on him and Spot sucks everything up to help Race
Upon her capture by team Voltron, Lance is the first (kinda the only) one to extend any kindness to her. Zethrid stares at Acxa who stands on the free side of the barrier keeping Zethrid contained. She bites down the bitter stab if betrayal to give her former comrade an incredulous look because the skinny thing is entering her cell without his weapon drawn and is he insane? Because Zethrid could crush him. She’s expecting taunting. She’s expecting coldness. She gets a smile instead. She doesn’t know how to feel about that.
He brings her food for three days with that same soft, quiet smile before there’s a change. This time he speaks.
“Do you need anything? A pillow? Another blanket? Any hygiene products?”
She arches a brow at him, huffing and turning her head away.
“Okay,” he says, “just let me know if you do. Offer is still open.”
Two more days pass before she speaks to him.
He looks shocked for a moment that she’s speaking to him and then confused by her question.
“Why are you being nice to me?”
“Why wouldn’t I be?”
“I tried. To. Kill. You.”
He just shrugs.
“So did Acxa…. and she changed.”
“What and you think I will too?”
“I don’t know, to be honest. And I never will unless I give you the same chance, will I?”
She doesn’t respond and he leaves shortly after that.
The next time he comes in, he cracks a joke. Or at least she thinks he does. She doesn’t get it, staring at him blankly and she thinks he might be a little dejected by that.
She ignores the voice inside that tells her she doesn’t like that
She takes a better look at him when he comes in. He’s smaller than her but he has his own strength from what she has seen of the others of his species. And he’s pretty, another thought she ignores. He smiles at her but there’s always something in his eyes that strikes her as sad. Acxa used to look like that too.
She really doesn’t like that.
She hears her cell door open and smells the food he’s carrying.
“What’s wrong with you?”
He stops, looking at her apprehensively.
“Why do you smile if you don’t mean it?”
He says nothing this time, setting down her tray and leaving without a word.
The next day her cell opens and she looks up on it’s not him. It’s the red one.
She doesn’t like that.
Keith growls as he’s slammed against the wall , a large hand on his throat, not crushing but still threatening.
“Why are you here?”
“Bringing you food.”
“Where is the blue one?”
“Is that his name?”
It never occured to her that he hadn’t mentioned it.
“Yes! Now let go!”
“No! Not until you bring him back.”
“He said he couldn’t-”
“I DON’T CARE. HE’S THE ONLY ONE I TRUST IN THIS PLACE SO BRING. HIM. BACK.”
And then Keith is dropped and he glares up at her, stalking out without a word.
She paces her cell, spinning around when her cell hisses open again and it’s him.
This time he’s grinning wide and his eyes sparkle.
“Hey there, Rock Star. Miss me?”
She ignores the warmth that fills her chest.
“Where were you?”
And he looks a little guilty.
“I had to sort some things out.”
“What is a rock star?”
“Oh, it’s uh… someone who is a really good performer of rock music.”
“Rocks don’t sing. Unless you count Balmerans.”
She doesn’t know why but he laughs. And laughs. And laughs.
She likes that.
- Two months after her capture she’s released with the condition that Lance will be at her side at nearly all times.
“Psshed. Not a problem.”
And it isn’t. Lance is a good shooter and good company. She likes him more than anyone, even Acxa who she loves because who wouldn’t love their own sister? Even if she does have to share her with the red one, Keith.
She likes Lance…
But Lance is pretty and delicate despite his strength and skills. He’s kind and soft, sharp in some ways but so very soft with his beautiful and crushable heart.
Zethrid is not. Or at least she doesn’t think so.
She’d break him. She would absolutely break him and it wouldn’t even be that hard.
And then she’d break. Colossal, immovable Zethrid would crumble.
So she just does what she knows best. She protects him. She indulges him. And keeps her stupid feelings herself.
Until she and Lance get overwhelmed by enemy galra during battle and he gets hurt. She loses it. She destroys them. She ignores the looks from the other paladins as she carries Lance to the medbay.
The little green one stops her, tearful eyes accusing.
“What did you do?”
“If I had hurt him, I wouldn’t have come back here.”
“How do we know you’re not just-”
“I’m as upset about this as you are! He’s thw only one here who acts like he gives a damn about me and I couldn’t protect him.”
And she doesn’t realize that angry tears are trailing down her face until after she’s shoved past everyone and gently placed Lance in Coran’s arms.
She’s sitting in the medbay with her head in her hands when she feels a familiar presence next to her and a warm hand on her back.
“What do you want Acxa?”
“Just making sure you’re okay.”
And Zethrid can’t fucking help it.
“What, you finally feel like being my sister again?”
“That’s not fair, Zeth.”
“You left us. Ezor was a mess. Narti was in a coma because her cat went insane. Lotor is more lost than ever. Keith isn’t your only sibling, Acxa.”
“I know that. But he’s my best chance at a second chance. For all of us. Look at you and Lance.”
“I have no idea what the quiznack you’re talking about.”
Acxa gives her a look and Zethrid knows she isn’t fooled.
“Fine. He… means a lot to me. Is that what you want to hear?”
“It’s a start.”
Acxa nuzzles her head against Zethrid’s and leaves.
She gets up and walks
“Wake up, Blue Flower. I need you with me.”
She doesn’t know that Keith and Hunk have been listening in. They share a look, knowing Lance will be fine.
When Lance stumbles out of the pod it’s to fall straight into muscular arms. For a second he thinks it’s Shiro except the waist his arms are wrapped around is slimmer and mkre curved and he looks up at Zethrid’s face. And she’s looking at him like he hung the moon.
Well she looks mad but in a good way. Like his mom looked when he was little and got lost in the store and she found him. He remembers being crushed to her chest and being told “don’t you ever disappear like that again.” He remembers saying “I won’t, Mami, I promise.” He feels a pang in his heart realizing he’s breaking that promise as they speak.
And Zethrid pulls him up till he’s eye-level and he can’t help it. He gives her his million dollar smile and says, “You haven’t been rocking to hard without me while I was at have you?” And he winks for good measure. Satisfaction blooms in his chest when the hard set of her mouth cracks and he can see her trying not to smile.
“Don’t be afraid to smile, Zethrid. You’re pretty when you do. Now show me those fangs, Beautiful.”
She stares at him wide-eyed. And then her chest is shaking before an unabashed and booming laugh fills the room.
It’s the most beautiful sound Lance has ever heard.
And then she’s gently cradling him to her chest, careful about her own strength and she’s sobbing in between laughs.
“Please don’t scare me like that again.”
And Lance doesn’t want to make another promise to a beautiful woman just to break it so he holds on to her, whispering in her large and fluffy ear.
All Caryl interactions in Season 7 (indirect or direct) and what it means:
Season 7 Episode 1: The Day Will Come When You Won’t Be: Daryl, injured and hopeless, kneeling, facing potential death, thinks of mostly Carol in his potentially last moments. He could be about to die any second here and he thinks of her, mostly. He remembers the Terminus hug (5x01) and he remembers when he gave her a shoulder massage (3x01).
Now, let’s think: Why would he remember those specific moments out of any other? Terminus reunion was probably because that was the happiest he’s been. He lost Carol out of his own control (like he has with his mom and Merle), he, perhaps, even though she was dead. He thought he would never see her again. He missed her so much. But then, he sees her. She FOUND him. She SAVED them. There she was, in all her precious flesh, apprehensive, wondering how they would all react. The woman he loves is alive and she found them, in a hopeless world. She found them. Happiness can exist even in that world. As hopeless as it seems, in the misery of it all, they reunited. And he runs to her. He hugs her so tight, lifts her off the ground. Teary eyed. So happy. Nuzzles her. Just can’t get enough of her. ‘’ You’re here. You found me. You’re here again. I’m never going to let you out of my sight, I love you. ‘’ (he didn’t say those words specifically, but with his actions, his facial expressions, says it all.)
Why did he remember Terminus? Because of everything I stated above.
Why did he remember giving her a shoulder massage? He was bringing her comfort. He was going out of his way to do something for somebody he loves (something he’s never done for anyone else, I may add). She looks at him with a huge smile and he stops. ‘’ We should get back… ‘’ he says. ‘’ Pretty romantic. Wanna screw around? ‘’ she asks. He scoffs. He looks back at her almost like ‘’ wait… is she serious? ‘’ and instead, they both laugh.
Slow burn, people. Slow burn. Why did he remember the shoulder massage? Because it was physical affection. It was him bringing her comfort. His memories with Carol, his happiest one’s, are ones that include physical touch. He could have remembered literally anything else. But he didn’t. He remembered memories that include him initiating, all on his own, physical touch and affection. THOSE are Daryl’s happiest moments.
Moving on. That was Caryl interaction in Season 7 Episode 1. It was indirect, but it was there. In his last thoughts (for all he knew), he thought of Carol.
Season 7 Episode 9: Rock In The Road:
Rick: Did you find Carol? Morgan: I did, yeah. Daryl: Where is she? Is she okay? Morgan looking at Daryl: Well, she was here and then she left. *If you notice, Daryl stops in his tracks. No movement. None. You cannot even tell he’s breathing. Morgan: You know, she wasn’t too happy with me following her. She wanted to get away from us. From everyone. *Daryl starts pacing side by side* Morgan: But when I found her, she was shot. *Daryl stops moving again* Morgan: Just a graze, I got her back here, they got doctors. They good. Daryl: *angry, grunt voice, almost snarling* Was it them? Morgan: It was. Morgan: She had crossed with some of them and one of them followed her and tried to kill her. *Shot of Daryl’s face, who swallows as he’s told someone tried to kill Carol. He looks very angry and upset.* Morgan, who by the way is looking straight at Daryl, almost with an apologetic look, continues on saying: I killed him. I had to. Carol was here. She got help. *looks at Daryl* Morgan: Now she’s gone. Daryl: Looks sad and destroyed, confused. *Shot of Rick also looking at Daryl.
Now… this scene wasn’t for nothing. This was to show how close Daryl and Carol are and how others around them, even others who don’t know them that well (Morgan) know how close they are and how important Carol is to Daryl. This scene had Daryl pacing, frozen, swallowing, angry, concerned and sad. This? It wasn’t for nothing. This was yet another indirect Caryl scene that didn’t necessarily need to be there and wouldn’t have been there had they planned on erasing Caryl.
Moving on to one of our favorite episodes (yes?)
Season 7 Episode 10: New Best Friends:
Scene 1: Daryl brings up Carol out of nowhere. (Necessary? No.) It starts off with… Daryl: Hey. Where’d you go in them trucks? *Morgan walks over* Daryl: You went to see them, right? Morgan: Yeah. Daryl: Part of your deal? *Morgan looks away* Daryl: What the hell is wrong with you? Daryl: You’re bleeding. They did that to you. You know what they are. Morgan: I do. Daryl: You know…if Carol were here, she saw all that, if she knew Abraham… and Glenn… she’d be leading us right to them, ready to kill them all. *evaluate Daryl’s voice… his voice is low. Almost angry. Snarling. Almost mocking Morgan. *Morgan is quite obviously a bit offended* Morgan: She would. And that’s why she left, man. *Daryl, looking at him with anger and walks away*
This scene, was it necessary? No. What did it show? That Daryl is thinking of Carol. He knows her. He knows how badass she is and how she takes no shit. He admires her. He’s PROUD of her. He knows this woman is fierce and he has no problems randomly letting Morgan know. Out of nowhere. Because he is thinking of her.
Scene 2: Richard set up a plan to get Carol killed in the hopes to push Ezekiel to want to fight. Let’s skip that dialogue and get to what matters.
Richard: It’s just some loner he met Richard: Sometimes he brings food their way. Daryl: Why don’t they live in The Kingdom? Richard: I don’t know. She lives out there, she’ll die out there. Daryl: … it’s a woman? Richard: Does that matter? She’s got more balls then you and me. She’s gonna die either way. *Notice the sounds, the music* Richard: When the saviors come and find their buddies dead, if they know their elbow from their asshole, they can follow an obvious spore. They are going to go to the weapons cash and into the cabin. They are going to attack this woman. Daryl: What’s her name? Richard: Maybe they kill her, maybe they don’t. But it’s going to show Ezekiel what he needs to do. Daryl: Her name. What is it? Richard: She’s tough. Maybe she’ll live. Daryl: *raises his voice* Say her damn name! Richard: … Carol. I hoped you didn’t know her. But I didn’t think you’d care. Cause you know what needs to happen. Daryl: No. Richard: Maybe she’ll live. Look this is how this can happen. This is how we can get rid of the saviors. This is how we all can have a future (A future for Daryl without Carol? NO. That’s what the show is saying). Richard: She’s living out there alone just waiting to die. Daryl: *raises voice again, walking away* NO. Richard: If we don’t do anything, a hell of a lot more people are going to die, people who want to live. Daryl: *immediately turns around and gets right up to Richard’s voice* You stay the hell away from Carol, you hear me?
Saviors driving up, Richard still wants to go with his plan and Daryl, realizing that he’s going to do it, throws Richard to the ground, beating him up.
After, Richard talks some more nonsense, prompting Daryl to say: ‘’ She gets hurt, she dies, she catches a fever… she gets taken out by a walker… she gets hit by lightening. Anything. Anything happens to her, I’ll kill you. ‘’
Was this scene necessary? No. This scene just showed us how much Daryl loves Carol and how she is the most important thing in the world to Daryl. That’s not for no reason. Nothing is wasted screen time. This is to remind us, after all this time, Daryl still loves Carol and will protect her by any means necessary, even if it means beating or killing someone.
Scene 3: The Grand Reunion:
*We see Carol opening her door and is just looking annoyed. Ezekiel and his people are there. Carol says she only opened the door because they tripped her wire. Jerry gives her cobbler, she takes it and tells them to go.*
*She’s seen sitting down, picking up a romance novel called Denim Dreams, when she hears a knock on her door*
*She opens the door, ready to rip Zekeyboy a new asshole, when she loses her breath, realizing it’s Daryl* Who, by the way, is wearing denim and so is Carol.
Daryl is looking apprehensive. Sad. Carol is beginning to cry. She walks forward in his arms and he hugs her back with one arm (because crossbow on his arm), he sniffles and moves her arm gently to look at her. Because he needs to know. He needs to know why she left.
Daryl: Jesus took us to The Kingdom. Morgan said you just left… I was out here. I saw you. Daryl: *voice breaks* Why’d you go? Carol: I had to.
This scene shows us how upset and devastated Daryl was finding out she left. This scene highlights to us, again, how important she is to him. How much she matters and how much he loves her. How much he doesn’t feel okay when she’s gone away.
Carol: I couldn’t lose any of them. I couldn’t lose you. * Daryl raises his head to look right at her* Carol: I couldn’t kill them. I could. I would, if they hurt any of our people, anymore of them… that’s what I would do. And there wouldn’t be anything left of me after that. Carol: The Saviors. Did they come? Daryl: …. Yeah. Carol: *crying* Did anyone get hurt? Is everybody okay? Did the saviors… is everybody back HOME okay? Daryl: *hesitating* Carol: Daryl. Daryl: They came. We got em all. Made a deal with the rest of them like Ezekiel. Everyone’s alright. *Carol here is starting to breathe more easy… and Daryl reassures her again… ‘’ Everyone’s alright ‘’ in such a comforting voice. Carol: *crying out of happiness with a huge smile* Daryl: We gonna eat or, or I got to be a king or somethin’ to get food around here? Carol: *laughs* softly responds ‘’ shut up ‘’. She brings the food over and pours some in Daryl’s bowl. Looking at him. Smiling. Daryl: Ezekiel. Is he okay? Carol: Yeah, I think he is. *Daryl starts eating, has wonderful table manners around Carol by the way and meanwhile, she’s smiling at him, barely taking her eyes off of him
This scene. All of this here, is important. This is Daryl lying to Carol because he loves her. Sounds weird, right? Hear me out. This is Daryl, who just finished hearing that the woman he loves couldn’t kill anymore because she was afraid there would be nothing left of her after that. Daryl lies because he wants to keep her safe. Protected. Away from this war. He lies because he loves her, and like Norman said ‘’ He doesn’t want her to get hurt and fuck her up basically. ‘’. This is a selfless act. This was for her. Him and Team Family could benefit from having Carol fight alongside them. Hell, Daryl even brought up Carol’s badassery to Morgan. He knows she could help them win. He knows she’d be a huge benefit and asset. But he doesn’t care. Not at her expense. He needs her. He needs her alive and healthy. If this means potentially sacrificing everyone else’s life, so be it. They can find another way. They can find another way that doesn’t involve the woman he loves. For her.
Daryl is walking out of the house when he suddenly turns around and looks at Carol for a second. She looks awkward, putting her hands in a pocket. Daryl doesn’t want to leave. But he knows he has to. So, he walks to her and gives her a hug. She grabs his hair and he puts his face down in her shoulder. We see Carol, her face, clearly shows she doesn’t want Daryl to leave. She nuzzles his shoulder and breathes him in. You can hear her. This is incredibly intimate. Neither of them want to let go, but Daryl knows he has to. Every moment that he lingers is tempting him to stay more and more. He knows he has to go. So he raises his hand up her back and moves away, looking right in her eyes… ‘’ Watch out for yourself, alright? ‘’ he says, in a very quiet voice. He walks away, without turning around. Because he knows he can’t stay. Not yet. Carol, however, is about to go back inside before she turns around. She’s struggling. She wants to go after him. She wants him to stay. (Melissa McBride confirmed that Carol was obviously struggling with Daryl leaving) But she goes inside anyway. (May I add that the music, to me, was pretty romantic? I loved the sounds. So calm, gentle and loving.)
Morgan confirms that Daryl is holding onto Carol. Daryl is holding onto Carol because he loves her.
Moving along to…
Season 7 Episode 12: Say Yes: (This is more a parallel) Rick says to Michonne: ‘’ I can’t lose you. We say that to the one’s we love. ‘’ Carol just got done telling Daryl that she couldn’t lose him in Episode 10. Because she loves Daryl. Daryl’s actions prove that he can’t lose Carol. Because he loves her.
Season 7 Episode 13: Bury Me Here:
Carol knows something wasn’t right. Why did Jesus bring the group to The Kingdom… what happened? She can’t sleep. She goes to find Morgan.
Carol: Why did Jesus bring Daryl and everyone else at The Kingdom? Morgan: They, um… They wanted to see if we could all start working together on things. *Carol getting teary eyed* The saviors are still here. They are not fighting with The Kingdom. Daryl said they beat em back at Alexandria… Is that true? That they made a deal with em? Is everyone okay? Just tell me if it’s true. Morgan: You need to talk to Daryl about that… You wanted me to keep the whole story about you from everybody. Told me not to say where you were and I did what you asked. Daryl didn’t find you because of me. And what was said between you and him was said between you and him. I will go with you to Alexandria if you want to make the trip. If you want to talk to them. You shouldn’t go alone. You found what you wanted, right? You got away from everyone. Is it what you wanted? Or was it just too late to get away? *Carol is crying at this point*
This scene is also important because it shows that no, Carol didn’t really want to be away from everyone. Especially not Daryl. This conversation was mostly about Daryl here and Morgan understands what’s going on. She already loved Daryl. She already loves him. It was confirmed Carol was running away from love. Carol was running away from Daryl. That’s what was happening in Season 6.
It was also confirmed by Melissa McBride, that when Morgan does tell Carol what happened at the end of the episode, Carol was thinking of Daryl and how she’s sorry that he felt he couldn’t tell her.
And now… here we are, rolling into Episode 16 and her running away? It’s done. The ‘’ One Way ‘’ sign was pointing backwards, away from The Kingdom. She calls Alexandria her ‘’ home ‘’… but there’s someone there specifically. Daryl.
The best is coming. Her and Morgan’s arc is officially closing. Carol is fighting alongside them. She will reunite with Team Family in Season 8. She will reunite with Daryl in Season 8. It’s been set up for us to see them have a conversation about this. Season 8 is a NEW chapter. Caryl is coming, slowly. But it’s coming. Also, we have a great reputation with season premieres for Caryl. ;)
Stay strong, guys. Season 7 DID show us that Daryl loves Carol and Carol loves Daryl.

I’ve often wondered the same thing. Did they know Anakin was
Vader, it’s hard to be sure. Still, the Jedi were hunted and if Luke left
Tatooine as a Forceful called Skywalker there could be trouble. They knew that
Anakin had a strong wanderlust maybe that was a concern? Or maybe it was
because Anakin left that Owen was upset? He got snooty with his Core World
friends like that soft, rich girl he brought home, left his mother to die,
buried her, and than left without a by your leave…? There was probably sibling rivalry there as
well. Owen couldn’t retrieve Shmi but Anakin could… The knowledge of the
Tusken slaughter probably became known eventually… I wonder if Owen condoned
that. On the one hand he would have fiercely loathed Tuskens…on the
other…Anakin also killed the children sooo…. I often wonder myself just what
on earth, or Tatooine, Owen though of his brother. Even more exasperating is
that Beru says it with a smile. So… she can’t think that Luke being like his
father is a bad thing….?
I think the answer to what sort of relationship Owen had with Anakin is complicated. Like, they are quite literally strangers, but Owen probably heard so many stories about him from Shmi that he felt like he knew him. Maybe he felt jealous that Shmi loved him more, maybe he felt like he was constantly being compared, or maybe he felt lucky that he got to spend time with Shmi while Anakin didn’t. Who knows?
I do, however, doubt that they were aware Anakin=Vader. In the new comics, when Obi-Wan tries to pressure Owen into letting him teach Luke, Owen says he’s gotten enough Skywalkers killed. That to me, in addition to being a sick burn, says he believes that Anakin is dead and the Jedi (Obi-Wan specifically) are responsible. I’m sure Mr. Certain-point-of-view failed to mention the whole Dark Side murder thing when he dropped off the newly ‘orphaned’ Luke.
I suspect the difference between Owen and Beru’s reaction to Luke wanting to go adventuring like dear departed dad comes down to experience. Owen, like Anakin, is afraid of loss. He lost his bio-mom, he lost his beloved step-mom, he lost his dad. They have no kids (infertile, dead babies?) except Luke and he does not want to lose him too. Skywalkers leave and come back dead (or not at all) and for Owen that is unacceptable. Beru, on the other hand, loves the stuffing out of Luke, but understands that she can’t hold on for ever. The parts of him that Owen fears, his quest for adventure, his desire to be a part of something bigger, are why she loves him and she accepts the implications of them in a way Owen can’t.
YES AND IM SUFFERING!!! and “my mom left me” LIKE, NOT EVEN HIS DAD WHO HE KNEW AND LOST, BUT IT’S HIS MOM WHO HE’S NEVER MET AND HE’S ALWAYS WONDERED WHY SHE DIDN’T STAY FOR HIM AND MAYBE FELT LIKE HE WASN’T WORTH STAYING FOR AND THEN WE KNOW HOW EVERYONE BUT SHIRO “GAVE UP ON HIM” AND IT’S JUST,, he feels so alone and heartbroken I need to hug him
So this is about to get pretty choppy, because yes babies are cute, but when they’re really small they pretty much only do like…five things. Those things are great! but not for writing about, sorry. So small time skips!
They settle into something like a routine around week three. Noctis is the one who struggles through getting both the little ones settled into their cribs and who rubs backs and tummies until they fall asleep. He has too much going on to stay up into the wee hours, but he tries to stay up a while longer than he used too, just in case they wake.
Prompto gets up early, is already quietly waiting when the first little whimper starts up and they trade off in the middle of the night when it’s needed. Thankfully it’s not as frequent and Ignis assures them, yes, all of this is perfectly acceptable.
There’s a few things that well…don’t get planned for so well.
You felt your heart shatter at the boys words. Was he telling the truth about Yugyeom? Would a person who you barely even knew of take the fall for you if he knew you were safe and sound with his ex-teammates? Did he really go out of his way and leave them just so he could try and see you again?
You looked at Bambam with sad eyes, watching him intently as he took in a deep breath. He turned away from you, rubbing the back of his neck slightly before sliding his hands into his pockets. “That’s why I don’t like you. Even though you didn’t intentionally do it, he left the team because of you. He left me, because of you. And now i’m all alone here. Him and I were best friends. He was the only friend I had for a long, long time, even before I was turned.. He was the only person I had before then, and now that he’s gone, I get this pain in my chest whenever I think about him..”
“I’m sorry, Bambam,” You whispered, looking down as you felt your heart clench,, “I’m sorry Yugyeom went after to me, even after all of this time of not seeing me. I’m sorry he left me because he thought he would be able to see me. If I were you, I would be mad at me too. Have you ever tried to contact him after the fact?”
“We had to cut off all contact with them as soon as they were inducted into the Kin. We had to move bases once or twice because they kept finding out where we lived. This is our third base since then. Jaebum was the one who suggested we live here even though we found a cheaper and better apartment a couple of hours away. Now I see why he did that.”
You sighed softly, sitting down while gently pulling on his hand, attempting to get his attention as you stared up at him.
“How can I make you forgive me? I don’t want there to be any harsh feelings in between us. Because honestly, you seem like a pretty nice guy, despite the mean demeanor you put on whenever I come into the room.”
“Could you bring Yugyeom back to us?” Bambam said, looking away from you, but sitting back on the couch next to you. “I know you can’t. That was more of a rhetorical question. I guess I could work more on trying to accept you and not hate you, but it’s going to be hard.”
You looked down at your hands, sighing gently. “Bambam, I don’t know why, but I get this feeling that everything will be okay soon. With time, of course.”
“What do you mean everything will be okay?”
“I mean… Your team. If something major happens, I think… I think the team will be okay. Maybe you guys will reunite one day.”
“What? Can you like, tell the future or something?”
“No,” you chuckled softly, looking at your hands, “Like you said, you get a feeling when you think about Yugyeom? I get a similar feeling, only when I think about the future of your team.”
The stayed quiet for a few moments. “Can…Can you show me a picture of Yugyeom? I mean.. I’ve seen a picture of him in my head from an old memory, but I didn’t really get a good look-or maybe a good memory of him.”
“Why?” Bambam hissed, his cold demeanor showing up again after you thought you had finally ended it,, “Are you going to try and seduce him like you somehow got Jaebum? Oh wait, you can’t see him because he went after you already.”
“Hey,” you said softly, resting a hand on his shoulder, his shoulder becoming more tense at your touch, “Don’t speak to me like that, please. I’m trying to bury whatever is happening between us so you and I can both be happy, and so Jaebum and Jackson don’t shout at you anymore. “
Bambam looked at you through his peripherals, letting a soft sigh fall from his lips before pulling out his phone. “Alright, fine. I’ll let you see a picture of him.”
He opened his phone and went through his photos, until he settled on one with what seemed like his former team. He zoomed in on one with dark blue, almost black hair, who had his arms around both Bambam and Youngjae while he smiled.
“That’s him,” Bambam said, placing the phone in your hand, “He’s dyed his hair since you last saw him though. He usually has red hair.”
“Ah,” you chuckled softly, nodding at Bambam as you looked at the picture, “Yeah, I remember his face now. I saw him sitting on the couch in one of the memories I had of him.”
“Him and I used to watch you,” Bambam explained, “But it was mostly him. I would just run out and get us food, because he never wanted to leave you alone. He really cared for you as if you were his younger sister, because he never had any family members besides his mom. It kind of explains why he was so avid on looking for you, because of the fact that in his mind, you’re the only living family member he has left.”
After a moment, Bambam sighed, taking the phone out of his hands, “Can I ask you a question?”
“Hit me,” You said, rubbing your hands on your thighs, ask me anything.”
“If somehow,” Bambam rubbed his hands over his face, “If somehow, your feeling is right, and we do come together as a pack again, and this is high-reaching, I know… But if we do, Can you please treat Yugyeom as if you were his actual sister? Whenever he thought about having no family, he would get really sad, and he’d even cry sometimes. It really hurts, seeing him hurt, because him and Youngjae are some of the happiest people in our team. So, if we were to become a group again, and you were to not treat him as if he was your brother, he would be really hurt. And I don’t want to see him hurt like the way he was when he lost both you and his mom. I don’t want to see that Yugyeom ever again.”
“But wait,” you paused, “Didn’t you say that you two got turned together? I thought that… That his mom was a vampire as well? How does that work?”
“Well, technically we didn’t get turned together, but I say that because he was the one who turned me. See; vampires age slowly, and we stop aging at around thirty, maybe a little older. We age ten years every one-hundred years. Yugyeom was one-hundred and sixty when I met him for the first time, still. I was only seven, though. He became like an older brother figure to me, I guess. Does that make any sense?”
“No,” you sighed, sitting back, “But i’m still interested. Continue.”
“So, he was one-hundred sixty. But when I turned seventeen, he turned one hundred-seventy. So he was technically seventeen because every ten years they age one year, since they age ten years every one-hundred years. Now does it make sense?”
“Oh, yeah,” you nodded softly, “So what happened? Did you ask him to turn you?”
“I did,” he nodded, “I wanted to be a vampire, very badly. They say that becoming a vampire is one of the worst things for you, because you have to watch everyone you love die off eventually, but in reality, I had no one else in my life besides of Yugyeom. So I asked him to turn me. It didn’t hurt at all, surprisingly. I think from the team, I was the only one to technically be turned, but that’s besides the point. I asked you a question.”
You looked at him softly, suddenly understanding as to why he had such an attachment to Yugyeom. “Alright Bambam,. I promise to treat Yugyeom as if he were my older brother. .”
“Thank you,” Bambam smiled slightly, quickly wiping it off of his face, “That made me hate you a little less.”
“Hey, it’s progress isn’t it?” You asked, smiling at him as you bumped your shoulder with his.
“Now, I didn’t know much about the vampire queen before I was turned,” he sighed, turning to you slightly and lifting his legs up slightly from the ground, tucking them in between you while his hands went to wrap underneath his knees, “What was she like?”
“My mom?” you asked softly, looking over to the piles of books Youngjae had brought you.
“From what I read… My mom was a scientist. She was a very well-known scientist in the human world, and aparetnly well-known in the Vampire world as well. But before she had tried to infuse her blood with the plasma of a vampire, she was never really intrigued into that. It’s when she met my dad-”
“Was he the king?” Bambam asked softly.
“No, he wasn’t the vampire king or anything like that,” You hummed, “My dad saved my mom from a vampire attack while she was working in her lab one late afternoon, or so I read. The Kin had broken into her lab because they had heard that a scientist in the human realm had come up with a serum that could eliminate all fighting cells in the body within seconds, and kill her prey.That scientist was my mom, which is kind of ironic because from the personality things and traits i’ve read about her, she seemed as if she wouldn’t hurt anyone. She didn’t do this on purpose, which is why when she found out that something that she created did that, she completely got rid of the serum. But The Kin attacked her anyway. My dad was a vampire who was active in the human realm, among one of the strongest here, and was set out to stop any active Kin members if they were a flight-risk and could potentially hurt someone. So my dad took my mom away before she could be physically attacked. And they fell in love. But he refused to turn her into a vampire, because he didn’t want to have her live with the curse he lives with.”
“He lived with a curse?”
“Not a real one. It’s like what you said before. He didn’t want her to live with the fact that she would eventually have to watch everyone, including her mom, die at some point. And he knew she couldn’t handle that. But they stayed in the Vampire realm with him, working on more science and serums that she believed, would bring both realms closer to peace. And with those Serums, she corrected the evil Kin members, but she didn’t do it with all of them, which is why The Kin was able to somehow to re-hatch itself after a while. My mom was able to take the throne after mostly eliminating The Kin, and because she was sweet and kind to everyone in the Vampire realm. But then… The Kin came back and killed both her and my dad and took over the throne. And now… That’s what the Vampire realm has turned into. And The Kin are looking for me now, because they think that since i’m her offspring and I have Vampire aspects that can be awoken in me by being turned, that I can somehow come to power and rule the same way she did. But I don’t think I would ever be able to do that.
“And why not?” Bambam said softly, “From what I see now, you seem very positive about almost anything. And you seem super nice as well.”
“Aw, does this mean you don’t hate me anymore?” You giggled gently, “That makes me happy.”
“I hate you a little less I said,” Bambam mumbled, “I don’t like you yet. But as I was saying… You seem fit to rule a kingdom. And with Jinyoung, or Jaebum by your side, i’m almost positive that you can do anything, especially rule another realm..”
“I don’t understand how i’m destined to be with two people,” you sighed into your hands, running your hands through your hair, “I just don’t understand it. Maybe there’s a book on it somewhere, but I would have to wait for Youngjae to get back so he can get me more books from the Vampire realm.”
“We can go to the library,” Bambam said to you, looking around slightly, “You know, none of the boys are here right now. It’s just you and me. And the boys said that they won’t be back until later tonight. Jaebum says I can’t handle the light, but I can.”
“What are you trying to get at, Bambam,” you said hesitantly, watching as a devious smile found its way to his lips.
“I say, we sneak you out. Just for a little while. I’ll come with you, because I can handle light well despite what Jaebum says. As long as we don’t stay out until late tonight, and you can quickly get your book, I think we can pull it off.”
“But, what i-”
“Sh,” Bambam hushed, standing up from his seat, “The Kin won’t catch you, (Y/N). I’ll make sure of it. Jaebum says i’m weak, but i’m stronger than I look. If anyone tries to come near you, I will protect you, and I promise you that. We’ll be quick, in and out, no one will even notice that we are gone!”
You shook your head slightly, “I don’t know Bambam…”
“Come on,” Bambam whined, taking your arm and pulling on it. “Let’s do it. Or are you too scared?”

Dean looked up when you closed the door behind you, and your eyes caught his. They were red and glassy. There was no doubt in your mind that he had been crying and drinking. The almost empty whiskey bottle next to him was a big clue. Not that you needed one. You knew him.
“Hey.” You smiled, trying the best you could to hide your worry as you walked down the stairs towards him.
“What are you doing here?” Dean questioned with a frown, making you shake your head and grin at him.
“What kinda greeting is that?” you teased him, trying to get him to smile but with no luck. He just mumbled an apology and gave you a quick half-hearted hug. He was so much worse off than you had initially feared.
“Dean…” you tried, but he waved you off with a fake smile making your heart clench. You wanted to throw yourself into his arms. Hold him and tell him everything was going to be okay, but you knew him. He had been your best friend for over a decade, your boyfriend for a little over a year now. You knew if you wanted him to talk, to open up to you, you would have to ease him into it.
Dean doesn’t want to hear it. He already feels his heart beating a mile a minute inside his chest, the world blurring at the edges as he swallows back what feels like bile crawling up his throat. He forces his lips to pull up in a smile, giving a cursory swipe to his eyes as his gaze bounces from the floor to the table to literally everywhere else but the goddamn door.
This is his fault.
As per usual, Sam was right, and Dean was too stupid to see it. If he’d only grown some fucking balls and talked to her—fuck.
“Dean, we should talk about this.”
A laugh—loud, humourless, teetering on the knife’s edge of hysteria—bubbles up past Dean’s lips. “Ain’t nothin’ to talk about, Sammy.” His voice comes out hoarse. “You want a sandwich or what?”
Dean doesn’t give his brother time to answer, stalking to the kitchen with a bitten lip. It’s hard to see where he’s going because everything’s blurred no matter how much he wipes at his face, and the way the world seems to be folding in around him feels kinda like the panic attacks he used to get when he lost his mom the first time. But that wasn’t on him.
