Dean isn’t about to let Cas stay in the war room all night researching. Not after everything they went through today and all the hits Cas took. He manages to get him to migrate from the war room to Sam’s room with the smell of the pizza Sam picked up for dinner. Sam bitches about the smell of pizza never leaving his room, but he lets them stay and eat it. The three of them watch an episode of the Crown (Sam’s choice tonight), Dean lounging on the bed with Cas sitting quietly beside him and Sam folded into a chair beside the bed.
When the episode is over, Sam kicks them out so he can sleep, shoving the empty pizza box into Dean’s hands as he closes the door behind them.
Dean stomps toward the kitchen with the pizza box and Cas accompanies him, eyelids drooping. Dean throws the box on the table and then stomps toward his bedroom. Cas accompanies him there too, shuffling by his side right up to the door.
Dean is torn. Cas looks so helpless and tired, and something in him needs Cas to be okay, to be better. He wants to tell Cas to claim one of the bedrooms and sleep it off, but he doesn’t. He just shoulders his bedroom door open and lets Cas dither in the hallway.
“Dean,” Cas says, like he’s suddenly afraid.
Dean looks back in surprise.
Cas keeps going, but Dean isn’t prepared for what he says next.
“Why don’t you trust me,” Cas says.
Dean stands there for a second and then opens the door the rest of the way.
I kind of wanted Cas to snap at dean saying “you wanna talk about cosmic consequences?? How about: the DARKNESS. And the fact that YOU KILLED DEATH, DEAN, I don’t think you get to say anything about what I did.”
?? but how about AU in which they're both selkies but they think the other is not and it just gets ridiculous because they talk a lot but never seem to get to the fucking point
Five Near Misses between Harbour Seal Selkie Yuuri and Harp Seal Selkie Viktor:
Viktor keeps disappearing on Thursday afternoons. Yuuri knows this because he sees Christophe dogsitting Makkachin at the bar. He knows he’s not supposed to pry, but he asks Christophe about it anyway, and Christophe shrugs, says something about a call to his agent. ‘But then why would he need to get a dogsitter?’ he wonders. Christophe asks him to write down the question, and when Yuuri does, he reads it, sighs, and shrugs again.
Viktor almost catches him that one time they’re at the little cove, though it’s hardly catching when part of Yuuri wants Viktor to know, more than anything, what he’s capable of. But somehow Viktor doesn’t quite add two and two together, doesn’t quite form the line between Katsudon and Yuuri, and it burns inside him like a secret he’s dying to tell.
Viktor rambles like nobody’s business and sometimes his words don’t string together right, and Yuuri wonders if it’s because he’s speaking English as a second language, or something else. He doesn’t make a comment on it – he’d be a bit of a hypocrite if he made comments about how people communicate – but it’s interesting, all the same, how Viktor peppers his sentences with sounds that have no meaning.
But Viktor is quiet around Nishigori, and quieter around Jean-Jacques Leroy, especially when the man brags about buying his fiancee a “whitecoat muff”. He curls into Yuuri’s side, turns his face away. He shakes. Yuuri squeezes his hand and doesn’t comment on the way his shirt invariably gets a water stain on the shoulder minutes later.
And sometimes, Yuuri sees a silvery spotted harp seal in the water and wonder what it is doing here in Scotland, so far away from home. The harp seal appears without fail on Thursday afternoons, sometimes hauling out onto the sand to chase after Makkachin. Yuuri wonders if it’ll become a fixture of the town, like Katsudon is. He wonders what the triplets will name it.
I think Snape loved the idea of Lily, but not Lily as her own person. He loved her for her kindness towards her, and the kinship they had together before Hogwarts with the them being magic, and him being able to tell her about the magical world according to him. I think as they grew up, with Lily gaining her own voice, opinions, experiences and view on right and wrong, I think that Snape never truly expected that. He loved her but only a shadow of her, and not her as a real person.

here is the deepest secret nobody knows (here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud and the sky of the sky of a tree called life;which grows higher than soul can hope or mind can hide) and this is the wonder that’s keeping the stars apart
If you’re ever feeling down about yourself or feeling scared about your future, just remember that Lily Allen made a song about her little brother, Alfie, sitting in his room smoking weed and watching TV all day, and now he’s Theon Greyjoy in Game of Thrones.
