Afterlife Theater - homage to eveyone who died

“It’s over already?”

Meanwhile, in a world separate from the living, those who passed on early watched as the world continued moving without them.

“BORING!!” Junko shouted and threw popcorn at the screen. “Laaame! Boo! Total cop-out of an ending!” She shot harsh criticism one after another mixed in with crude remarks. “Plot? What plot? This didn’t make sense at all!”

“Junko, we’re not supposed to be noisy. There are others watching too.” Mukuro whispered in embarrassment.

“Huh?! Like I give a fuck!” She yelled back even louder just to mock her. “Besides, anything I say is way better than this bullshit on screen!”

“Shut up you ugly woman.” Yasuke reprimanded her sharply, his eyes were focused and never left the screen. “Don’t make me knock you out again.”

“Kyaaah! Public humiliation! How kinky of you!” Junko squealed in delight.

“Could you say that again, big sis? Oh, and put in some more fanservice while you’re at it.” Yuuto commented as he eagerly stuffed another piece of bread in his mouth.

“Inappropriate behavior is unsuited for the theatrical environment. I request that you cease this at once.” Ishimaru scolded the noisy bunch.

“Yeah, man. Keep it down will ya?!” Mondo shouted at them.

“Well she does have good reason to be outraged.” Celes quietly commented with a neutral expression. “This just seems too happy of an ending given what we’ve all had to go through.”

“Dude, you know what would have made this better?” Leon asked no one in particular and so he also answered his own question with a longing sigh. “If we were all alive and with them too.”

A heavy silence fell on them inside the theater.

“Well… It can’t be helped.” Sayaka was the first to speak up. “There’s no way we could cross over. We’re dead after all.”

“A deus ex machina? That’s an even worse ending! I refuse such low quality plot!” Yamada voiced out his protest.

“But just because we’re dead doesn’t mean there’s no reason for us to rejoice for them.” Sakura’s calm and reassuring voice echoed throughout the theater and it had the soothing effect of dissolving the tension.

“That’s right! Even if I’m stuck here, I’m so happy that I won’t be seeing my sis for a while.” Yuta declared with a huge grin on his face. For someone who was dead, he looked very much alive.

“Seeing them alive makes me feel happy more than jealous.” Chihiro smiled as well. “I’m so glad that we got a happy ending.”

“Happy ending my face!” Ruruka objected from the back seat. “Do you know how much suffering I had to go through? And these guys get to live but not me?? Talk about favoritism!” She cried out exasperatedly.

“Ruruka, please calm down.” Seiko anxiously tried to pacify her friend. “I know you’re still upset but it’s already over.”

“It’s useless. She’s been ranting about it all this time. Just let her talk it out.” Izayoi said as he then nonchalantly ate another macaroon.

“You’re not the only one who suffered you know.” Bandai let out a long sigh. “I didn’t even last one hour after the game started.”

“…Sorry about that.” Sakakura promptly apologized. “I didn’t know it at that time but still, that got you killed. Sorry…”

“It’s okay. I’m not as mad anymore.” He then smiled knowingly. “Not when I know why you’re always so grouchy and frustrated.”

“W-What’s that–”

“Juzo~” Chisa slung an arm over his shoulders. “Look, it’s Kyosuke on the screen. Aren’t you glad that he’s alive?” She smiled and then her face softened as she offered her most sincere gratitude. “Thank you. If it weren’t for you, he would’ve been here with us.”

“Tch. You don’t need to thank me. You would have done the same thing if our roles were switched.” He looked away for a moment and then when his eyes met hers, there was an unspoken understanding between them. “Wasn’t it you who said that you could die for him?”

“I did, didn’t I?” She softly said and then almost jumped from her seat as she pouted at him. “Ah, but you beat me to it! No fair!”

“Well I wasn’t about to let him die on my watch.” He chuckled and then scoffed. “And had he died there then I would have punched the old man here.”

“My, someone’s full of energy now isn’t he? Ahaha!” Tengan laughed heartily.

“If you’re going to have some fun then count me in.” Great Gozu bellowed from his seat, ready for some action.

“Everyone’s getting along just fine~” Gekkogahara remarked through Monomi.

“Not a bad ending, don’t you think?” Kizakura commented as he drank his liquor.

“It’s the best we could have ever hoped for in the midst of all this despair.” Jin seconded as he too downed his drink.

And beside Chisa sat Nanami who had been watching here the longest. “Everyone did their best and so a miracle was created out of everyone’s hopes.” She smiled softly as the scene showed her friends with bright and hopeful smiles. “I think I can wait a little while longer until we can play a game together again.”

And with that, the curtains of this theater closes while the screen continues to play. A world without them continues to move. But even so, they still hope for those on the other side. This wasn’t the end, at least not for those still alive. There’s still the future. A future that they could shape as they want it to.

And for those who have passed early on, they will be here in this theater, eagerly watching this new future take shape.

Spring Season | Final Impression

Spring Season is really over. I still remember how much I was waiting for this season and how I couldn’t wait anymore and now it’s really over. I have to say that the season was just as great as I expected it to be. So many great shows, so many suprises and yes some of my favorite anime were in this season. Since Winter 2013 I was following every season and this might not have been the best one but definetly the season I was looking forward to the most.

Hibike! Euphonium

And to start with my most favorite Hibike Euphonium was my number 1 of the season. Hibike was one of the shows I definetly wanted to watch since it’s from Kyoani but to be honest I didn’t expected much. I kinda expected something similair to K-On but rather bad. I also have to say that even though I like Kyoani I wasn’t really happy about their latest anime.

I mean what did we got ? Amagi Brilliant Park was nice but turned kinda okayish in the second half. Free… is Free, the second season of Chuunibyou sucked hard, Kyoukai No Kanata was okay, Tamako Market’s movie was better then the anime and yeah then we have the first season of Chuunibyou which I really liked. So it has been years since the last show I really really liked from Kyoani. So of course I didn’t had high expectations. But luckily I got suprised. Not only is it way different then K-On it ended up being a masterpiece.

First an anime about a bandclub is something which rarely happens and I think this is also the first anime about brass instruments. What I really liked about this show was the pretty realistic potrayal of the band. The personalities of the characters were really good and also rather unique. Sure you usually get stereotype characters in Kyoani anime but this time it was different. Every character was important and unique. Be it main character or only a side character. Also good to see was that they all had more sides to their personalities which many characters lack mostly. With Kumiko as the main character she definetly is one of my all time favorite character.

Her personal struggle, her attitude really everything was great. Let me not even start to talk about Reina.

The plot was really good. I expected a light plot for this anime and yes it kinda is at times but overall it can get pretty dramatic and shows us that life can be pretty hard. If you wanna make good music you have to work hard and even this is not enough sometimes as someone else can still be better then you. Here I have to praise Kyoani again. The love in the details. The way they are potraying the characters practicing was brilliant. The characters are practicing. Practicing at lunch, at home, at night basically when ever they can to improve.

The soundtrack of this anime was amazing too. The music was beautiful and even for some one who has no idea about music you could tell if someone was playing an instrument better then someone else even if it was only slightly better. Again the love in the details. You could hear every little mistake they made or if they improved and seriously I could talk the whole day about how great the musical aspect of this anime is.

Since it’s Kyoani of course I expected good no great animation. But holy cow this was beyond good. I think this is their best work in terms of animation and it was easily on movie level and definetly not something they would usually show on TV. The freaking love in the details lol. The way the water is animated, crickets, scenaries, body language everything works damn good.

Before I forget. Many people actually only watch the show because of Kumiko and Reina. Since Kyoani likes to show them together and makes the viewer feel the yuri between them . But honestly this is definetly not the reason why you should watch the anime. Watch it because it’s a masterpiece.

(the relationship between Kumiko and Reina is just a plus lol).

So yes definetly my favorite anime of the season.

Actually I planned to write only short opinions about the anime but this was kinda long lol.

Plastic Memories

If I would describe Plastic Memories in two words then it would be wasted potential. Now I don’t say Plastic Memories is bad. I actually really enjoyed it but the wasted potential is a fact you can’t ignore because it could have been so much better. The problem I had with Plastic Memories is that it didn’t know what it want to be. A story about the future and how androids would work in our society ? Something similair to Eve no Jikan ? etc etc. but Plastic Memories ended up chosing the weirdest route. The romance route. Now after the first episodes you would expect something way different. Sure I saw it coming a romance between them but dayum the whole setting didn’t mattered at all in the second half. The whole focus changed to the romance between them and this was something I found really dissapointing because Plastic Memories had the chance to be a very impressive anime. This way it’s still good and a cute story but far away from being as good as it could be.

Arslan Senki

Look I really want to like this but I can’t. I don’t know if my expectations were just too high or something else but it is very hard to make myself watch the latest episode every week. But when I’m actually watching it it’s not like I dislike it. I just find it very boring and incredibly slow paced. Let me quote ANN “The Heroic Legend of Arslan continues to be a bizarre mix of strengths and faults.” and this is exactly what I would say too. The concept is good, the story is interesting and the setting is nice too but so far it’s just not really exciting. The story is pretty similair to Akatsuki no Yona which I actually really enjoyed. Overall not a bad show but I do hope the second half gets better.

Yamada-kun to 7-nin no Majo

Yamada was just the way I expected it to be. A decent anime which is fun to watch. Not more not less. I kinda liked the concept and general idea of the anime. It’s unique and I honestly wouldn’t mind another season. I heard the manga is better though so let’s see maybe I read it.

Fate/stay night: Unlimited Blade Works 2nd Season

I say it again. I don’t understand what’s so great about this anime. The animation is awesome but I found the story rather boring and the only characters who are actually cool are Lancer and Saber. That’s it. But oh well I’m finally done with this anime. (That opening though. Epic as hell.)

Re-Kan!

Another decent anime. I don’t really have much to say about this one. You won’t miss anything if you don’t watch it but I’m happy I did. It had some great episodes and overall managed to be a nice anime.

My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU TOO!

This was one of the anime I have been waiting for in the Spring Season. I really liked season 1 so I expected this season to be just as good but I was wrong. This season is so much better then the first season that I started loving the whole series. This is after Hibike my favorite anime of the season. But why is this season so much better then season 1 ? First the animation. Now that I compare both seasons I realize how much better the new animation is. Every character looks better then before and also the general animation is more fluid and more detailed. The other aspect is the story. Some people were saying it’s too dramatic but I really enjoyed the drama. I liked the development of the characters and how their relationship kept changing. The ending was kinda mean lol so I hope we get more at one point but this anime really impressed me overall.

Danmachi

It’s all about Hestia. I think the most people know how much hype Hestia made in Japan and in the internet. Everyone loves Hestia but what about the anime itself ? It’s decent. At first I expected it to be a Sao clone. Sure it has nothing to do with gaming but the whole dungeon thing kinda reminded me of Sao. But it stands on its own feet and was an entertaining anime. Definetly wouldn’t mind another season.

Shokugeki no Souma

Not gonna lie I can’t believe how much I love this anime. I love it so much I actually started buying the manga for it. It’s entertaining, it has great characters and it keeps making you hungry lol. I’m gonna write more about it when it’s actually finished though. But so far fantastic.

Nisekoi

Very very very dissapointing. I know that Nisekoi barely moves forward with the plot. Obviously otherwise it would have ended ages ago. And I actually don’t really mind those random chapters/episodes but this season was very boring. The whole season was a filler and a bunch of random episodes. And again I don’t really mind usually but the episodes weren’t really good either. First I don’t really like Chitoge so the episodes with her were okayish and there were quite a lot of episodes foccused on her. And the characters I actually like Marika, Tsugumi and Onodera didn’t really got that much screentime. I also had high expectations on Haru but she’s not really that great either.

Overall a very dissapointing and random season.

Danna ga Nani wo Itteiru ka Wakaranai Ken 2 Sure-me

Just as random as Nisekoi was the second season of Danna ga Nani wo Itteiru ka Wakaranai Ken 2 Sure-me. But if you liked the first season you will like this season too. I’m sad we didn’t got to see the baby though so bring on the third season.

Punchline

Wow. The hell happened to this anime in the second half ? It suddenly started getting pretty good. Something I wouldn’t expect at all from the first few episodes. I mean it’s not like I enjoyed this anime a lot but it did got quite interesting in the second half and was actually worth watching. So if you dropped this anime after the first episodes you could give it another try. It’s not that bad actually.

Kyoukai no Rinne

I love Rumiko and I liked all her shows so far and Rinne is also one of them. The beginning was kinda weird (okay all Rumiko anime and manga are weird) but now after 12 episodes I’m really enjoying this anime as it’s really typical Rumiko. The characters and the dialogs are just as absurd as you would expect it and that’s what I want to see.

Ore Monogatari!!

Suprised Madhouse picked a romance anime . But what is not suprising is that the show is really good. Very entertaining and kinda different romance story. But just like Soma I’m going to write more about this after it’s finished.

Kekkai Sensen

Why is the whole Gintama cast (voice actors) in this anime ? After watching the first few episodes I know why. Because the characters are also a bunch of weirdos. And that’s the strongest part of Kekkai. The crazy characters are just hilarious. Specially Zapp is great. In every episode you will see the characters being in crazy situations and everytime when the City is exploding you keep wondering why the hell does anyone live there. The anime is still not finished since the last episode got delayed so I’m still waiting for it. For everyone else who didn’t watched this. This anime is pure entertaiment.

Owari no Seraph

It can’t get more generic then Owari no Seraph. But being generic doesn’t mean it’s bad. It just means it’s very predictable and has elements you saw in different shows already. So basically to stand out it needs to have something unique. It doesn’t actually lol but it’s still not a bad anime. I can see why people would love this but I’m not the biggest fan of this show. Still kept me interested enough to make me want to watch season 2.

Assassination Classroom

I’m really sad actually that this anime ended. It was a great anime and stayed good till the end. It had some good character development, it’s funny and the anime overall is unique. Can’t wait for the new season in the Winter Season. I’m not sure if I can wait this long though so I might start the manga soon.

Gintama

My favorite anime returned do I even have to say something ?

Next week Shinigami Arc. Do I even have to say something ?

Ain't That A Kick In The Head

Description: dean x reader, Sam x reader friendship. Dean leads the reader on when he knows she’s in love with him, when they actually sleep together he then disappears by the morning. Sam’s a good shoulder to cry on.
Words: 2,753
Warnings: a little steamy at one point but I think that’s it!
Author’s note: Named after a classic, funnily enough sung by a rather famous guy also called Dean! (have a listen here… Shh, it’s a guilty pleasure.) I don’t really do smut but this is definitely the steamiest I’ve written. This was actually saved in my computer as “dick dean”. Oops. Hope there’s not too many typos, I did check it twice but I was ridiculously tired by the end!

Request: Hey :) I Was wondering if you could do a one-shot where the reader is in love with Dean, and he’s been leading her on for awhile and making her think he feels the same way (typical male lol) he doesn’t mean to do it, it’s just kind of how he is. Then one day after she loses her virginity to him he kinda stops talking to her, and then brings a random girl home. Sam comforts her and tries to make up for his brother being an ass. It could maybe end up with Sam being all fluffy? Lol thanks :)

“Never judge a book by it’s cover.”

You’d heard it a million times and you’ll hear it a million more. In your line of work, it served you pretty well. Usually the one who looked suspicious tended to be exactly that, but you had found more than your fair share of surprises.

“Don’t mix business with pleasure.”

Now, there was another saying that you should have listened to, particularly when that business was your lifestyle too.

It had started as a crush when you first met Dean, 4 years ago, he put on what you knew to be his usual boyish charm. You flirted and laughed as much as the next girl but once you’d proved invaluable on a few hunts, there was a mutual respect there.

In recent months the dynamic had changed. You had found yourself jumping at a light touch as he brushed past you or giggling uncontrollably at something only mildly funny. It was gradual, but it was clear for anyone and everyone to see, which is why when Dean began to do these things intentionally, it was both a shock but exciting. A simple hand in the small of your back combined with a few too many lingering looks and you were sure he felt the same.

It was each hunt, interview and evening off for weeks, which earned more than a few exasperated eye rolls and sighs from Sam. You laughed them off and carried on. You’d had a couple of alcohol induced heart-to-hearts with Sam on the subject and he always had been supportive, he wondered why you hadn’t made a move yet but understood.

-

It was around 9pm, you’d been in town since this morning but it turned out that the case had been a bust. All the of you were shattered at the moment, more so than usual, so Sam had made the executive decision to book a couple of motel rooms for the night to get a little sleep. Both he and Dean were going out for a drink at the bar but you decided to make the best of it and catch an early night.

You had a separate room for the evening, a rare privilege, so you gladly took it. You slumped down onto the creaky little bed, trying not to think of all of the others who had probably been on it since the last sheet change. Running a hand through your knotted hair, you stared aimlessly at the ceiling for a while. It was too quiet for you, in the hunter life, getting time to relax, let alone being able to have time to yourself was unheard of.

Letting out a sigh you turned your head slightly to see the little TV in the corner of the room, without getting up, you strained to reach the remote on the bedside table and flicked on the TV. The extent of the evening’s entertainment seemed to be black and white reruns, game shows and documentaries on crimes. You opted for some old black and white cowboy film that you remembered seeing once with your Granddad when you were small, with a smile you propped yourself up with some cushions and got comfy with the quilt.

It must have been around an hour later, you had started to doze off unintentionally. You heard a light tap on the door through your grogginess and chose to ignore it. You clicked onto another old film that was just starting and settled back down further. Annoyingly, the knocking persisted so you rubbed at your eyes and plodded over to the door.

“Who is it?” You grumbled as you got level with it.

“It’s just me.” You heard Dean’s voice on the other side.

Hurriedly, you ran a hand through your hair and ran a hand under your eyes to get rid of any makeup that had slipped down in your sleep. Straightening your top, you opened the door.

“I thought you went out with Sam?” You said stifling a yawn. 

“I did, but he found some old acquaintance from Stanford and they started talking about boring things. I had half a pint of beer with them before I couldn’t take it anymore.” Dean said with a small laugh.  He took a small step forward to lean on the door frame. “I was wondering if you wanted to do anything?”

“Oh, um, I was actually going to catch an early night, I was just watching a film then I was going to go to sleep. I’ve not had the opportunity for over 6 hours in weeks and I was going to make the best of it. Sorry.” You gave him a tight lipped smile. You felt guilty, but you knew you had been getting grouchy from your lack of sleep lately and it was better for the sake of everyone that you caught a few extra hours.

“Right, of course, yeah, um, sweet dreams, Y/N, I’ll see you in the morning.” Dean said and took a step back.

You got the door about ¾ closed before you muttered a few swear words under your breath and opened it up again to see Dean still hadn’t moved.

“Do you want to watch the end of the film or something?”

“I don’t want to step on your toes.” Dean said pulling a face. “But yeah, if that’s alright?”

“Of course!”

Within a few minutes you were both propped up on cushions and at least pretending to watch the film. You were aware that you were probably reading more into it so you tried to relax out, you shuffled around and accidentally elbowed Dean in the process. You muttered a quick apology and settled down. Immediately you felt Dean move his arm around you. Desperately hoping he couldn’t see how wide your eyes had suddenly gone, you tried to keep your heart steady and act casual.

“You can relax.” You felt Dean’s voice rumble beside you.

“I am relaxed!” You part squeaked out. You turned slightly to face him and relaised just how close he had become.

“I can see that.” He said with a smirk, he swallowed hard and concentrated his eyes back on the TV intently.

The air was agonisingly thick and you could the heat radiating off of his chest. You could feel your hand shaking very slightly and mentally kicked yourself, you held it with your other hand in an attempt to steady it and you focused on the TV.

“Are you cold?”

“No, I’m good.” You said flashing him a very quick smile.

“Y/N, are you alright?”

You nodded and turned to look at him again. Slowly, you leaned closer, not even meaning to, but you were taken back when he closed the distance for you.

Your lips moved seamlessly together and you could feel the weight of Dean’s hand as it gently found your hip. His lips were soft on yours but he moved fast. Hurriedly, you ran your hand up his arm and let it rest at the back of his neck, pulling him in tighter. He quickly got the message and the hand on your waist wound it’s way further around you to pull you on top of him and flush against him.

You lost sense of time for a little while, just aware of his hands roaming over your curves. Your heart was beating so hard you could physically feel your chest moving but it only seemed to spur Dean on.

Suddenly you pulled back, taking a deep, shuddering breath.

“Are you absolutely sure about this?” He asked, searching your expression desperately.

You nodded, unsure words would serve you as you wanted right now. He brought you in for a deeper and more passionate kiss than before. Without breaking apart, he hoisted you up further and flipped you over on the bed. He laid you down gently on your back and held himself over you, you could feel his muscles rippling and straining beneath your hands and you let him take control.

When you opened you eyes, it took your a few seconds to regain you bearings of where you were. You readjusted the covers around you and were quickly reminded you hadn’t gone to sleep alone when you caught sight of your lack of clothes. You took a quick intake of air before letting your face break into a grin and you bit your lip.

You turned over only to have the smile wiped off your face as you found the space next to you empty.

Sitting upright you blearily took in the room. The TV was off now and you couldn’t hear the shower running. You swallowed hard, not wanting to jump to conclusions. There was no sign of any of Dean’s clothes left in the room, no sign of anyone other than you in the room.

“Dean?” You said half-heartedly hoping for a reply, but you were met with silence. You told yourself he probably just didn’t want Sam to know so had to leave early.

Biting your lip hard as a distraction, you got up and started to get ready for the check out time.

— 

By a few days later, except for a few more winks and smirks than usual, Dean acted as if nothing had happened. He joked around as he would any other day but there was no inkling of anything further than what you had been for 4 years.

You tried to act as if it meant nothing to you and you did a good job of hiding it for the most part but it meant so much more. You hoped that he was just taking some time to get used to the idea or that it was anything other than how it seemed.

A week had passed and still there was no sign of him acknowledging what had happened. Cas had sensed something going on and asked some questions outright that had lead to Sam piecing it together. You bit your lip and stayed calm, a few sarcastic comments and everyone brushed it off. You sat back in the corner, quietly fuming at how calm Dean was about it, he had known your situation but still said nothing. Sam had given you a questioning look but you gave him a glare which made him quickly think better of any pep talk he had been planning.

That evening, you were in the library doing research. Burying your head in books possibly wasn’t the best coping mechanism but it worked well for you. You jumped when heard the door to the bunker crash open. You rolled your eyes to yourself, Dean had gone off to the local bar for a few games of pool earlier and clearly he’d had a few too many.

If he was back, it was probably getting late so you started packing down the books. That was when you heard a female voice.

It wasn’t Charlie or anyone that you knew off the top of your head, it was a shrill laugh followed by hushed giggles. You could hear Dean’s low voice taking back but you couldn’t distinguish what he was saying. You looked back down at your book but the pages were swimming.

Slamming the book shut, you stormed out of the library and into the kitchen. You made yourself a hurried glass of water and sipped on it with shaking hands.

Dean had already found another girl. You’d hoped it had many as much to him as it had to you, but judging by the noises or lack of them that you could hear for now, it had meant less to him than you’d hoped.

You walked quickly back to your room, drink still in hand. You slammed the door loudly, hoping in your own little way that it reminded him off your presence for a few seconds at least. Sitting on the edge of the bed, you desperately tried to keep from crying.

You chewed at your lip and stared intently at the glass in your hand. Months of flirting and what you thought was the start of a relationship, torn down in one night. Hunters don’t get their happy endings.

You heard a knock on the door and you grimaced at the irony. It had started with a knock on a door. The thought threatened to force the tears out but you refused to let them. Shaking your head and taking a deep breath, you walked over and swung the door open to be faces with Sam.

“Yes I’m fine, no, now’s not a good time. Sorry Sam, goodnight.” You said already beginning to close the door, however, his foot was in the way.

“Don’t give me that. I’m not an idiot.” He snapped, but you could see his eyes were soft and filled with concern.

“What do you want me to do? Cry about it?” You hissed, letting Sam in and closing the door behind him, the last thing you wanted was Dean hearing you. “I’ve been there, done that. I thought Dean would be different with me but he wasn’t, end of story.”

Sam stayed quiet and pursed his lips. You could hear Dean’s companion a few doors down and you could see Sam was trying to work out what to say, but truthfully, it was unlikely to be anything you hadn’t said to yourself.

“Have you tried talking to him?” Sam said quietly.

“He’s not much of a talker.” You said, brushing past him and slumping back down onto the bed. Sam looked uncomfortable stood in the middle of the room but you couldn’t have cared less in that moment.

“He wouldn’t have meant to hurt you, he’s just, well, Dean.” Sam said, with a sad smile.

“Too late.” You muttered nearly inaudibly.

Sam walked over and crouched down in front of you. He picked up your discarded glass of water and tried to offer it to you but you shook your head.

“He was bang out of order, I could see him responding back to you and I’m sorry I encouraged it, I didn’t expect him to walk out on you. Especially not when he knew you were a… You know… If I’d known I’d have spoken to him or something.” San awkwardly fumbled with the rim of the glass.

“Seriously, you’re trying to be an agony aunt and can’t say the word virgin.”

Sam didn’t laugh at your attempted joke, he just put a hand on your knee and looked up at you sympathetically. You could feel a lump rising in your throat again and this time you let it go. Sobs racked your body as you thought of Dean. You sunk onto the floor where Sam haphazardly moved a clump of hair out of your eyes and put his arms around you as you sobbed.

“Shh, it’s alright, shh.” Sam mumbled as he let you get out your tears. “He’s my brother, I’m sorry he can be a dick.”

You let Sam keep muttering encouraging comments in your ear and it took a good 15 minutes for you to calm down again. When you wiped your eyes, you felt embarrassed that Sam had dealt with it. Neither of the boys tended to see you get upset like that, but it was an exception.

“Look, thank you, I’m fine now Sam, you get some sleep.” You said with a watery smile.

He looked at you sternly but didn’t hold it for long.

“You sure?” Sam said, sitting back to judge your facial expression better.

“Yeah, honestly, I’ll sleep it off and I will talk to him in the morning.”

“Are you sure you don’t want me to stay?”

“Last time I tried to get an early night, it didn’t go so well,” You said with a chuckle when you saw Sam’s blushing face. “No, I’ll be fine.”

“If you’re sure.” He said with a tight lipped smile and got up. You walked over to the door with him and opened it up. You were silently thankful the rest of the bunker had gone quiet now as Sam have you a final quick hug. You gave him a small wave as a goodbye and clicked the door shut behind him.

You crashed out fully clothed onto the bed when you got back inside. Your head was clearer by the time you got to sleep and you, in fact, slept the best you had in weeks. Nothing had changed in the morning, but somehow, knowing Sam was on your side, made dealing with Dean a little easier.

IT'S HERE!!!! - In which there is FLAIL over THAT New Years Day Episode

RIGHT.
THIS SHOW NEEDS TO COME WITH LIKE, SOME KINDA WARNING SIGN TELLING US THAT THEY’RE GONNA GIVE US POST SEX SCENES AND CUTE LITTLE COUPLEY DIALOUGES BETWEEN 2 GUYS WHO ARE JUST HAVING A “CASUAL THING”.

But yes, analysis time.

Okay so this, I’m gonna break it down like a scene by scene thing!

Scene 1: The Cafe That Has So Many Empty Seats But Still They Both Have To Sit As Close To Each Other As Possible.
Okay, so Aaron’s sat, facing the door, waiting for Robert to come. He’s sat FACING the door, not his back turned to it, but FACING it, as though he’s looking EVERY single time whenever the door open to see if it’s Robert or not, and get’s let down EVERY time because it isn’t him. And he’s sat, hopelessly bored, face leaning on the back of his hand! The door opens, AND CAN WE TALK ABOUT ROBERT HERE?

LOOK AT THE ROBERT. HE BANGS THE DOOR ON BOB, HE KNOWS AARON’S GONNA BE PISSED ABOUT LAST NIGHT , AND HOW MUCH DO YOU WANNA BET THAT HE WAS ALL CHAOTIC AND A MESS AND ALL OVER THE PLACE, BUT JUST BEFORE HE OPENED THE DOOR HE TOOK A DEEP BREATHE TO COMPOSE HIMSELF SO AARON DOESN’T SEE HIM IN A STATE? Like he has this smile on and it just GOES when he sees how upset Aaron is!

Right. I don’t understand these 2. ROBERT, THERE IS A SOFA EMPTY OPPOSITE AARON FACING HI, YOU COULD HAVE GONE AND SAT ON THAT?
BUT NOOOOOO. No these 2 just … I JUST URGHH … he goes and sits RIGHT NEXT to Aaron, and LMAOO, Aaron’s so pissed at him he gets up straight away as if he’s saying with his body language to Robert, “Nooope, you ain’t getting none of me!”

But Robert goes and sits next to Aaron because OH MY GOD LOOK HOW APOLOGETIC he is? Like HE’S SO SO SO sorry and he wants to sit next Aaron and tell him how sorry he is because he means it!! He wants to explain himself! He wants to be as close as possible and just tell him how sorry he truly is!! And Aaron kinda uses the fact that he isn’t listening to Robert apologize to his advantage and, Robert’s TONE OF VOICE in this scene is SO nice and soft like, “I might be free later!” and Aaron’s casually like yeaaaah whatever, what’s that gotta do with me, and I just … I LOVE hiw COUPLEY this scene is! Robert’s like, “I’m trying to make it up to you!” but can someone tell Robert that if you’re just having a casual fling, YOU DON’T DO THAT KINDA STUFF???

AND THE BARN. YES OF COURSE, THE BARN. The barn is their little place. I JUST … I’ll go into detail about the barn later, but yes, THE BARN, and Aaron’s just playing it SOOOOO casual like yeaaah yeaaah whatever, but inside he must be BUZZING!!

Okay so Aaron goes, and Robert tells Bob how DULL last night was. “It was more business than pleasure”. Oh honey, we all know that! WE ALL KNOW WHAT PLEASURES YOU WANTED LAST NIGHT.

Also, I love how recklessly Robert just … SAYS what he feels, AND LMAOO BOB’S LIKE YEAH MATE YOUR MISSUS IS BEHIND YA!

Chrissssssiieeee, as much as I love you, can you let your to be husband go and fuck Aaron? Please? Like, Lachlan should be held responisble for what he does. But whatever, I love how Robert doesn’t click on that Chrissie wants him to babysit Lachlan until she SPELLS it out! L

LOL CHRISSIE, “YOU CAN HANG OUT, PLAY COMPUTER GAMES? IT’LL BE FUN” NO NO 14 YEAR OLD BOY LOVES TO HANG OUT AND PLAY COMPUTER GAMES WITH THEIR TO BE DAD, ESPECIALLY WHEN THAT TO BE DAD HAS A FUCKING SESSION HE OWED HIS SECRET LOVER LAST NIGHT!

Can I point out here, that I think another reason why Robert may cheat on Chrissie is because, she always puts him in situations he doesn’t wanna be in. He didn’t wanna be in that party last night, but was forced to. He doesn’t wanna babysit Lachlan, but he’s forced to. He “has no choice” in those matters. And it MUST frustate him! It’d frustate anyone!

AND ROBERT’S FACE AT THE END OF THAT SCENE WHERE CHRISSIE SHUTS HIM UP WITH A KISS AND A “NOT LIKE YOU’VE GOT ANYTHING ELSE ON ANYWAY” is GOLD.  Like, it’s an expression mixed with anger, annoyance, hurt and a feeling of “well is this how life is gonna be like?” and a “what am I gonna say to Aaron now?”

Scene 2: Domestic Robert Can’t Cook An Omlette and Aaron Takes Charge.
So Aaron said in the cafe that, he’d see about whether he wants to meet Robert in the barn or not. AND NOW LOOK HOW EAGER HE IS.
ROBERT COOKING IN THE KITCHEN JUST GIVES ME AN INSANE AMOUNT OF FEELS OKAY? IT MAKES ME WEAK. IT MAKES ME IMAGINE SCENARIOS OF HIM COOKING DINNER FOR AARON OR THEM 2 HAVING DATE NIGHTS AND NO IT’S JUST ADORABLE!!
Another thing, they call each other “mate”, but my god they look at each other and smile at each other and flirt IN SUCH A FIRST CRUSH type way! ALL FOR CALLING EACH OTHER “MATE”
And Aaron’s obviously pissed because that’s the SECOND time he got stood up, HIGH AND DRY! And I LOVE how in this situation, Aaron takes control? Like he just, he tells Robert in the face that you either come or we’re done! Like … HOW COUPLEY does that soundddd? Like, they’re not together, so how can they be done? But I feel sometimes they forget that? And they just can’t STOP acting so … “lovingly” towards one another!!
And then Robert sees Belle, and do you know, FOR A SECOND, I GOT DADDY ROBERT FEELS. I AM SO SORRY THIS IS GETTING SO DEEPAND FUTURISTIC AND EMOTIONAL BUT I DID!!! And he asks Belle if she knows how to make an omlette LIKE HOW DOES ANYONE NOT KNOW HOW TO MAKE AN OMLETTE?! WHAT WOULD AARON SAY IF HE HEARD THAT?!
So Robert goes warning Lachlan to stay away from the drinks cabinet and he’s nipping out for work … so now Robert, is this business or pleasure? Also, with Aaron being your new business partner, is THAT gonna be business or pleasure? Oh honey, you ain’t slick!

Scene 3: The Barn!
So I LOVE how they both have like, a meet up place now? Like the barn .. it’s THEIR thing. It’s THEIR place.
So, like last week, Aaron’s sat in that same place. But last week, look how unsure he was whether Aaron was gonna come or not! Robert came late lask week, and Aaron was all fidgety and nervy. But this time, look at Aaron. He’s sure. He knows that even if Robert does come late, he WILL come. Aaron’s not nervy or anxious. He’s calm, composed, because the reigns are in his hands! And he KNOWS Robert will come!

So Aaron goes, “see you haven’t decorated?” as though he’s like, last night you spent a lavish night with your wife to be, aren’t you gonna do that and put the same effort in with me? And Robert even suggests we can do it in a hotel room, but Aaron prefers the barn. Because the barn, it holds memories of last time. And Aaron doesn’t do all the posh money fancy thing, he’s a simple guy, with simple needs. He isn’t about the complexities that come with money and riches, and I just … IT’S A BARN.

LIKE WHO HAS SEX IN A BARN?

BUT THOSE 2 DO. Robert doesn’t mind, because he just wants Aaron, and I love how, with Aaron now, he’s slowly starting to adapt? to not always wanting the goood riches all the time. Like, he will make shift in a barn, if he has to, just so he can be with Aaron.

THE BARN, IT’S … IT’S THEIR LITTLE HAVEN.

And once again, we have these 2 fight like a married couple! LIKE, THE BACK ANF FORTH BETWEEN THEM? How Aaron’s just hurt because HE REALLY wanted to spend last night with Robert, and it sorta did upset him alot, but he won’t admit it?
So what do you do normally when you’re hurt, but you don’t wanna admit it? The normal reaction for ANYONE is to pinpoint elsewhere. And that’s what Aaron does, he takes out faults in what Robert’s saying. That Robert said he was “trying to make an effort”, and Robert is, but Aaron’s upset with him but won’t admit it, so he scoffs in his “effort of trying”.

And I feel that Robert, clicked on to that? So he tells Aaron that I know what you’re tryna do? And you need to stop doing that because I know you’re upset and it’s getting old.

GETTING OLD, ROBERT HOW LONG HAVE YOU 2 EXACTLY “BEEN TOGETHER” FOR THIS TO BE CONSIDERED OLD?????

LIKE URGH THESE 2 JUST!! Just the BANTER between them makes Aaron smile  when he says do you want me to leave, because obviously, neither of them want that, and they both know Robert isn’t forcing Aaron to stay, they both are here because they both REALLY BADLY WANNA BE and they both know that and I just … BANTER IS WHAT MAKES THESE 2 SO … THESE 2? Like … they need that bit of push and pull and your dominate then I dominate and hot and cold because it’s what gives them such a thrill? Such a need for wanting more? THEY NEED THAT BANTER.

And I think that is what Robert meant when he said “I’ve missed this”, he’s missed the banter. Because they haven’t really bantered in SO long? Last week was all cuuuute, and cuuute banter? This is pushing you to you limit and drving you insane banter, the banter these 2 have naturally and have always have between them!

I mean Robert could be missing the sex too! ;)

BUT OH THE SOFT TONE IN ROBERT’S VOICE WHEN HE SAYS THAT AND HOW GENUINE IT IS OH MY GOD IT MAKES ME HEART MELTTTT!

Okay so can we take notice of when Aaron stands? Aaron stand up when Robert says “he’s missed this.” This time Aaron uses his body language and gets up to tell Robert that he’s here now! He doesn’t need to miss him! He’s right in front of him, not going anywhere! And he just HAS to tease him saying, “have you?” to just get a reaction out of Robert, and then next moment, they’re stood opposite facing each other, like, FINALLY, I HAVE YOU NOW and Aaron’s got smile on his face and Rbert’s got those heart eyes on him again and says “Yeaah, why else would I be here?”

AND THEN CHRISSIE TEXTS.

AND LMAOOO, AARON’S REACTION IS  JUST … IT’S CLASSIC. I mean these 2, they … they have such hate/lust/want/desire filled thing going on, but Aaron in that moment feels possesive and annoyed, as if to say that, Chrissie has her turn with you last night, I’ve had to wait all day and all night and then some, so why can’t I have my turn now in peace with you? LIKE AARON JUST WANTS ROBERT THAT BADLY!!! AND AARON’S LIKE WAITING AND TIP TOEING ON HIS TOES LIKE JUST READY FOR ROBERT TO KISS HIM, TO BE WITH HIM IN THAT WAY!

LOOK HOW EAGER AARON IS … AND AARON WAS REALLY TRYING TO PLAY IT OFF ALL COOL AT THE START?  Honey, who are you fooling here?

AND THENN URGHHH MY MOST FAVOURITE LINE EVER THAT ROBERT HAS EVER SAID TILL NOT TO AARON COMES.

“IT’S JUST YOU AND ME.”

IM SORRY I JUST.

I NEED A MOMENT.

CAN WE TALK ABOUT HOW HAPPY AARON IS HERE. HOW HE’S LIKE … PROPERLY SMILED SMILED IN FRONT OF ROBERT HERE FOR THE FIRST TIME? HOW THAT BIG SMILE HAS COME ON AARON’S FACE BECAUSE OF ROBERT AND ROBERT IS STOOD RIGHT IN FRONT OF HIM TO WITNESS IT AND HE CAN NOW SAY THAT YEAAAAH I MADE YOU SMILE??? AND JUST … URGH IT’S LIKE THEY’VE CRAVED EACH OTHER FOR SO SO SO LONG AND FINALLY, FINALLY THEY’VE GOT EACH OTHER AND NOTHING IS IN THE WAY.

THEY’RE IN THEIR LITTLE BARN – THEIR HAVEN – AND THEY’RE TOGETHER – SPENDING THE FIRST DAY OF THE NEW YEAR TOGETHER!

AND IT BUILT UP AND BUILT UP AND FINALLY THEY KISS EACH OTHER LIKE, URGHH, THEY’RE SATIFSIED NOW!

AND URGH ROBERT HELD ARRON’S WAIST AGAIN, DIDN’T HE? DIDN’T HE? HE DID. I AM 10000% SURE HE DID!

Scene 4: THAT POST SEX SCENE.

Sooooo.

OKAY.

*BREATHES*

The camera zooms from the top. And they’re both looking up. Robert’s got one arm under his head, and Aaron’s got both on his stomach. Robert’s way of lying shows that he’s kinda … relaxed? Aaron’s shows that he’s a teeeeeny bit nervous, hands open, on his stomach, as if to settle himself down.

OKAY THEM TALKING ABOUT SEX. I JUST …

Obviously, Robert wants the reassurance. Robert wants to know if he did well, if he staisfied Aaron’s need, but more importantly, if he made Aaron happy again, after not doing so last night. And obviously, Aaron’s not gonna satisfy Robert’s ego by telling him, but Robert knows, in the way Aaron must have been whilst they were having sex, the way Aaron reacted, what Aaron said etc, that … he was impressed! So even if Aaron doesn’t tell him, it’s okay.

Aaron’s wearing his shirt. So that means that … we’re still not at that point yet between them 2 where … Aaron can take his shirt off? Aaron feels … that maybe if he showed his scars, thing would have gotten awkward between them. But I like that the writers have Aaron keep his shirt on. Because I’m hoping that, they will have a scene where Robert does see Aaron’s scars and apologizes to him.

Okay the next bit is possibly the most … touching bit of the entire episode. I remember an Anon asking me yesterday about how these 2 still haven’t had any “meaningful” dialouge between them, and I think this next bit was. It was an admission by Robert. It was him confessing something. It was him telling Aaron something that no one else knows.It’s that secret he knows he can keep safe with Aaron that he can’t with anyone else. It’s that thing that will tie him back, link him back, draw him back to Aaron. And it’s beautiful … this dialouge they have.

Aaron says, I could have been anyone.That’s like saying that Aaron maybe feels like Robert really doesn’t care about him in that sense. Aaron admits his fear in that line, by saying that I could have been a no body, you wouldn’t have cared, because you just want the sex. And he doesn’t look at Robert and say this, he looks up. He looks up because he can’t say that looking into Robert’s eyes, because he’s afraid if he did, then those words would have never have came out, so he looks upwards, he can see the roof made out of all these different materials and … he sees himself as just another material making the roof of Robert’s little house of lies and deceit and cheating. He sees himself as just another person for Robert. Nothing special, nothing that’ll stand out about him. Just like the stars in the sky, or the clouds. He’s just another star or another cloud in the collection, Robert says “Why do you say that?”, because Robert at this point doesn’t understand why Aaon pulled his value down so much? He doesn’t get why Aaron feels so insecure, and then Aaron looks at Robert and says, “I bet you’ve done this a few times.”, hoping that maybe Robert does see something in him.

Then Robert takes this deep breath, and admits to him that he has slept with men before. Now a debate here would be, does Robert mean men or women? But … if he meant women then … it wouldn’t be a big deal? Like we know he’d do that. So I feel it is men that he is referring to, and how they were one night stands, and look at how Aaron gets a bit … shocked? Because he did guess that Robert had done it before, but he knew that Robert was scared at first about the the thought of this,but Aaron’s taken aback that he’s been with  a few men before, albiet one night stands.

And then they’re both just … silent. And you can hear the wind blow in the back. And … Robert at this point is thinking that Aaron’s gonna say something, he’s gonne judge me, he’s gonna point at something, but Aaron just stays quiet. He doesn’t judge, he doesn’t pull a face, he doesn’t make a sound. He waits and keeps the silence comfortable, until he feels that Robert’s alright again, and all the time, the camera shot it close to their faces, as though we’re really zooming in on to them 2, and their little secrts and the little things that make them.

And then, after a beat, Aaron says,

“So what happens next?”, and the camera shot is back upwards again, because we’re not talking about their personal stuff anymore. We’re not talking about quiet secrets and hidden pasts anymore. It’s a bigger picture now, and then they’re talking about making the barn a nice little place where they takes the rats out if they’re gonna continue seeing each other, and Aaron’s so optimistic at this point!!!! Like he truly feels that it doesn’t matter what, they can keep this thing going even after Robert’s married, and then Robert breaks it to him how it end once they’re married.And Aaron doesn’t really know what to … what to make of it?

He’s a bit taken aback because WOW talk about being straight up, and then he’s hurt, and his eyes just keep widening and then he just has this black stare, just in case if Robert does look at him, and then he falls silent.

Like, he looks off into the distant, and falls silent. Because only a minute ago, Robert said that Aaron wasn’t like the others, and he took his blind optimism too far? And Robert gave him a reality check and he begins to wonder if that is what life is gonna be like? Where he likes someone but somehow or the other they always get snatched away – either by death or by a job offer in France, or by a rich woman who he knows he’ll never be able to compete with.

And Robert, whilst he’s saying all of this, h has this … confused face on him like he’s making himself believe what he’s trying to say more than to Aaron, and then he looks at Aaron to see his reaction, only to be greeted by a blank stare.

And Aaron has to literally swallow and just keep looking ahead until Robert says you must have worked that out by now, as though he’s trying to get Aaron to agree, so he can agree too, because I feel that Robert really does want more and to continue it, and if Aaron had said yeaah, then they would have, but because he hears Aaron confirming that they won’t continue it, he agrees along. But in the end Aaron leaves it so vague by saying, “If you say so”, like it’s Robert’s call. Aaron can’t make that choice for him. So he says, if you say so, because at this point, it’s obvious Aaron wants more.

And then Robert talks about going back, and the “here and now” bit rings back to Aaron. That if Robert is here, here and now, then why not make the most of the oppurtunity,and OHHHHH AARON JUST, I LOVE HIM SO MUCH, HE’S SUCH A CUTIE. He’s just like, indrectly trying to say that … we ca have one more round, can’t we? AND ROBERT’S SMILE JUST … URGH, AND THAT KISS I JUST … WHEN NOTHING OR  NO ONE IS IN THE WAY, LOOK HOW HAPPY THESE 2 ARE. LOOK HOW “IN THEIR BUBBLE – WELL BARN” THESE 2 ARE IN!!! I JUST …. URGH MY HEART, and it’s such a nice kiss. Not too passionate and wild, yet not too gentle. It’s meet in the middle, just like they are slowly starting to!

Scene 5: STILL IN #THEBARN
So Robert’s getting dressed and Aaron’s just lying there, chilling, AND IM GETTING SERIOUS COUPLEY FEELS AGAIN, AND AARON JUST WANTS TO SPEND LIKE THE ENTIRE DAY WITH ROBERT. I MEAN LOOKAT HIM, HE COULD JUST … SPEND ALL DAY WITH ROBERT, AND HE’D LOVE IT SO MUCH.

Like can we talk about how nice it to see both of their softer sides comes out to each other? Yeaaah I’m all for angst, but when their softer, mellow sides come out for each other, IT JUST … THEY SEEM LIKE SUCH A GOOD COUPLE TOGETHER. And Aaron’s just sweetly asking Robert out on a date type thing even if it for just a drink and URGH THEN ROBERT JUST RUSHES OFF AND POOR AARON BABY’S JUST LYING THEIR AND THE WAY HE SAYS “ROBEEEERT!” LIKE HE THOUGHT ROBERT WAS LISTENING TO HIM AND THEY WERE GONNA SPEND ALL DAY TOGETHER AND THEN HE JUST UPS AND LEAVES.

And Aaron doesn’t angry here. He sounds confused borderline whining boyfriend borderline hurt/upset again! LIKE, WHAT A CONTRAST TO HOW HE WAS AT THE START OF THE EPISODE WHEN HE WAS ALL COLD AND HARD ON ROBERT.

Okay so the scenes in the hospital – I really don’t have much to say, other than the fact that Robert SERIOUSLY needs to start coming up with better excuses or he’s gonna get caught out. Chrissie doesn’t even buy into it and she’s too damn upset to care about where Robert was BUT CAN WE TALK ABOUT ROBERT’S FACE WHEN SHE SAYS TO HIM YOU’RE NOT WELCOME.

LIKE

HE LOOKS LIKE A LOST BOY AGAIN. THAT SIDELINED KID WHO NEVER GOT ASKED AND WAS JUST FORGOTTEN ABOUT. HE LOOKS SO SO SO UPSET AND IS ACTUALLY FEELING SO GUILTY FOR WHAT HE’S DONE.

EVEN THOUGH IT WASN’T HIS FAULT?

YEAH HE WAS MEANT TO BABYSIT LACHLAN, BUT NO ONE POINTS OUT LACHLAN’S FAULT IN THIS?

AND EVERYONE – STEREOTYPICALLY – POINTS THE FINGER AT ROBERT.

IT’S NOT FAIR ON ROBERT LIKE WHY DOES HE HAVE TO BLAMED FOR THIS?!?!

LIKE, CALL ME BIASED, BUT I DON’T SEE ROBERT’S FAULT IN ANY OF THIS?

Scene 6: WE’RE OVER – Yeah, Right, Like When You Said You 2 Were A One Off? Yeah, I Thought So.
So in the pub, Aaron’s simply having his drink and Chas thinks he got dumped LOL!!! And look how guilty Aaron is when Zak tells Chas what happens. LIKE

Aaron is a DECENT guy – he doesn’t mean any harm and he doesn’t like seeing people hurt – especially when they get hurt for the wrong reason because of him! And especially not Chrissie because, well, Chrissie is a nice person and Aaron knows that, and he wouldn’t wanna hurt her in anymore of a way than he is with Robert?

And then Robert walks in and gets an ear full from Zak which is THE LAST thing he needs right now because – again – how is ANY of this his fault?!

And look at where Robert is positioned. He’s in the middle. On one side he as Aaron, and on the other, Zak being everyone who hates Robert, shouting at him. He’s torn between the 2.

He wants to be with Aaron and spend time with him, but it comes at a cost. It ALWAYS comes at a cost, and mostly, it’s Robert being battered down by everyone!

But Aaron shares that guilt, and that’s why Aaron goes after him, because Aaron is as equally to blame for all this, if Robert is being blamed.

And that’s why Aaron says to him that Robert can talk to him, because Aaron understands, and Aaron knows that Robert’s had a rough day and he just needs someone who’ll listen, and Aaron’ll be that.

Aaron WANTS to be that, especially after that dialogue they had after they had sex today, where Robert dropped his guard and let Aaron in a little bit, and Aaron dropped his guard and let Robert in a little.

And so Robert begins, and he talks about he’s feeling. How scared he is, how he’s scared of losing Chrissie and her trust. He wants to talk about HIS fears.

And when he says, “what was I thinking being with you”, I seriously don’t think Robert meant it as a way of saying what did I EVER be with you, I think he meant it in terms of today, and why he caved in and went to the barn, because if he hadn’t, then apparently, none of this would have happened, and Aaron I think, in a moment of hurt, takes it in the other way, where he thinks Robert means why did I EVER get with you in the first place?

But I don’t think Robert meant it in THAT way. And so once again, Robert’s the selfish one, and the person who he thought would understand  him doesn’t.

And because it’s all mistakenly been took in the WRONG way, Robert calls it “quits”, and LOOK HOW HURT AARON IS. LOOK AT HIW HE LOOKS STERN, BUT THE SECOND ROBERT TURNS AWAY, HE HAS HURT IN HIS EYES BECAUSE HE DIDN’T WANNA PUSH ROBERT AWAY, NOT WHEN HE GOT SO SO CLOSE TO HIM TODAY.

But we all know they’re gonna make up anyway soooo ;)

SO ALL IN ALL, THAT WAS A ROLLERCOASTER OF AN EPISODE. IT TOOK US TO HIGH AND LOWS AND DARK PLACES AND FIMILIAR PLACES AND NOW LEAVES US HANGING.

HONESTLY THOUGH, I THOUGHT THE CHRISTMAS EPISODE WAS GOOD.

THISSSSS , THIS WAS JUST … SOMETHING ELSE!!!

The Lost Potential of Overwatch

So some day soon I’ll be getting Overwatch. I’ve held off for the first week as I didn’t want to give add to the numbers of opening day sales out of principle. But eventually I will get the game as I, like 10 million other gamers, played the beta and quite enjoyed it. 

Here is my (a little long) review on the game:

FIRST, THE GOOD:

It looks great. I love the Pixar look. I love the cartoonish, at times almost comic book feel to it all. The game seems to be able to straddle the fantasy with reality really well. The graphics for this are top notch and the style leaves it open to add more in either direction (more sci-fi craziness or more stuff closer to our world).

It’s incredibly easy to play and the controls are tight and well polished. You can use the keyboard or a gamepad. I played on the PC with the 360 controller and I had no problem stomping idiots into the ground (The Blizzard community is not known for their prowess at FPS). 

The level designs are really unique and there are a lot of little details that make me as a gamer squeal. Things like hitting objects and watching them bounce around. Or just looking at my feet. If a FPS doesn’t let you see your feet, then it doesn’t deserve your friendship.

The characters all offer unique abilities, weapons, and roles that can be helpful to thwarting the enemy team. One of the things I’m most happy to see is that the game allows you to change your character (hero) at any time in the match. Your team composition isn’t meshing well? Then go back to the base and switch up your class. No more blaming the loss on team comp in this game!

The matches are also incredibly short which after playing a plethora of MOBA games, is a refeshing change of pace. Getting locked into a match for 20+ minutes can wear you out. Even with HOTS making MOBAs more tolerable, it still is a long time to be in a pick up mulitplayer match.

The other thing that I enjoy is that I’ve never felt that I needed to have my team super coordinated in order to win. What I mean by that is I can totally solo queue and not feel like I’m going to lose. If everyone on your team is good, then it seems to make up for the difference in communication. Just don’t be stupid and you’ll do fine.

Another thing about the matches is that this is NOT a MOBA game. People kept trying to push MOBA into a genre it never was and it became confusing. It’s like when someone is asked if they played any MMOs and they say they started playing LoL. It’s not an MMO. It’s a MOBA. And Overwatch is not a MOBA, it’s a FPS multiplayer. There are no matches that resemble the style of LoL, DOTA, or HOTS. No lanes, no minions, no nexus/base/core to destroy. Just team objectives.

Finally the thing I loved was that even if your team was shit, the game still distinguishes individual prowess with awards. This is similar to how Halo 3 and Reach did it with MVP and other awards that it showed off at the end of a match. The most noticable award in Overwatch is the “Play of the game” in which it shows off the most impactful moment a player did in the game. Usually this is on the winning side, but there are times when a good play occurs on the losing side. It’s just a little thing that makes losing an easier pill to swallow.

So that’s my good. 

HERE IS THE BAD:

There is no story. I can’t stress enough how much this bothers me. The 5 trailers we’ve gotten have been INCREDIBLY story driven with a lot of references to things that sound like they’ll be explained later. ONLY THEY WON’T!

For several years now it has become apparent that Blizzard has exiled their writing team to the bowels of comic books and novels, opting instead to have a disjointed scavenger hunt whenever you want to hear the entire story of any of their franchises. It’s gotten really bad in WoW where you can’t even go from one expansion to the next without reading a book and comic series in order to know why you’re now on Draenor and Garrosh is back.

Blizzard is leaning hard on this now, saying that Overwatch will have books and comics put out in order to fill the story. So don’t worry fans!

That’s so lame. For two reasons:

1. Overwatch has some great appeal because it looks like a mix between a comic and Pixar. IT DEFEATS THE PURPOSE IF YOU PUT IT IN A COMIC! The appeal was that it was a game that looked cartoonish. If you put it in a comic, there’s nothing special here. It’s just another comic. The world is special sure, but I wanted to explore that world, not have a writer explore it for me.

2. If a story telling device cannot tell its story without the aid of another device or volume, IT HAS FAILED AS A STORY TELLING DEVICE! If I have to track down all these different media in order to figure out what Overwatch is about, then Overwatch is a huge failure in the story department.

Some fans/white knights will argue that you don’t need a story. The game is perfectly fine without one.

Well not really. As I was streaming this game with my brother, he made a comment about how much he hated all the stereotyped characters. “Oh well of course she’s a gamer in a mech and a girl and fiesty. Because that’s what gamers want” Or “Of course that guy with dreads is on roller skates.”

There are some HUGE character archetypes and stereotypes in this game that are really really loud and annoying at times. Without a story, we have no idea why these characters are the way they are and as a result, it can be hard for people like me and my brother to accept them.

I think this was most obvious when the ridiculous SJW post was made about Tracer’s ass. If you don’t know about this, some parent was outraged that Tracer’s victory pose was this over-the-shoulder pose where you could clearly see the fullness of her ass. The parent went on to argue about how this goes against her character and makes her way too sexualized. And then stated Blizzard needs to change this immediately. Which of course they did to a nice pin-up pose instead. 

Nice.

I found this all to be insane. YOU don’t know who Tracer is! You have had 2 videos of her in which half her lines have been “Cheers, love! The cavalry’s here!” I’ve known plenty of girls that are just as peppy as Tracer and are total slut bags. You can’t push your views on a character you have no information on. And why don’t we have any information on her? BECAUSE BLIZZARD WON’T MAKE A STORY MODE!

And notice I said story mode. Not single player. I want that to be very distinctive here. Because that brings me to the next problem I have with this game.

It’s only online. Always. At least for the PC.

Now technically almost all of Blizzard’s games are like that and no one has really complained before (WoW, HOTS, Hearthstone), but for those of us coming from other FPS that all have offline play as well, it is very awkward.

And hypocritical. We gave Titanfall and Star Wars Battlefront such shit for doing this and yet Overwatch get’s a pass? What the what?

Another flaw I have with this game is level design. Specifically the layout. Specifically specifically the Hollywood level. Basically Blizzard has given the defenders the huge advantage as the assault team cannot attack without going through a major choke hall (Shown below with the pink line) in the first section. All three doors (shown with the pink squares) drop the attackers out in a single line, allowing a team to just sit back (At about the pink circle) and line up their shots for a massive amount of carnage. But this is a minor flaw that can easily be fixed in a batch (just move one of the doors around the street and bam, instant balance).

Speaking of balance, that worries me a bit. Blizzard and other companies are known to be… awful at balancing things. It’s like they can’t keep their hands off it. I am more hopeful with Overwatch than I am with HOTS because of the fact that teams can constantly change heroes to meet their situtational needs. No more saying “Well the only champion good against her is this guy, but what about the other champions?”

Finally the thing I don’t like is the kill cam. I like the “Play of the Game” at the end of the match, but the kill cam irks me. I have a fundamental hatred with kill cams as I believe they are made solely so the filthy casuals can somewhat play well. Can’t tell where that sniper was? Kill cam will show you! Not sure why you keep dying when you run around that specific corridor? Let kill cam do the work for you! I don’t mind the cam in Halo when it just sat on your body. But I have a problem with it revealing positions of others.

I also just hate how much time it sucks out with the respawn. I want to get back into the fight and the game seems to want to take its time with showing me everything. Especially at the end after “Play of the Game.” I cannot for the life of me get it to skip showing me the math of all my points I racked up. JUST GET TO THE END!

Anyways, at the end of the day Blizzards failed to deliver a new IP completely because they wanted to jump into the circle jerk of esports. Rather than do more work, they released a multiplayer only game and overcharged it for the consoles. Seriously, if I was a current gen console owner, I’d go in the store to get the game, pay only $40 for it and tell the clerk they’ll get the other $20 when I get my the rest of my game/campaign. At least the PC is only $40 which if you combine it with Firewatch would make a complete game (I digress, Firewatch was awesome).

I think what is even more of a show of failure is how Blizzard was unable to stop their game being compared to Battleborn. Battleborn is the Take Two version and it actually has a story. It’s not a great story and it’s disconnected by a menu screen, but at least it’s there. However, Battleborn is a vastly inferior game to Overwatch in terms of control, color (everything is red. It hurts the eyes after awhile), and multiplayer modes (remember how I said I was sick of MOBAs…). Blizzard had every advantage going for this game with a giant community that will play every game Blizzard releases. So Overwatch is incredibly primed for longevity. 

And yet Blizzard couldn’t squash Battleborn because they refused to add a story to Overwatch. Although I’m not saying I hate Battleborn, there are a lot of good it does, I just found Overwatch to be better in terms of playstyle and potential.

But back to Overwatch, everything it does do, it does perfectly. It’s actually surprising that this is Blizzard’s first FPS as it all feels really good. If Blizzard were to announce a story mode expansion for $20 I’d feel wayyyy better. I’d totally buy that because on the PC it would equal the cost of one full game.


So in conclusion I’d definitely recommend this game for PC. But if I had a current gen console it would be a cold day in Hell before I’d drop $60 for an incomplete game. Now if only I could find a way for it to work on my Steam Link, I’d be set…
