Happy Lunar New Year! 2017 is the year of the rooster, and it’s believed that anyone born under this sign will have a good year with plenty of luck and opportunities. To figure out which sign you are, simply look for your birth year!
Santa: i’ll give you anything you want this christmas
me: well okay then. gimme a hoverboard. like, an actual, futuristic hoverboard
Santa: boi make it realistic
me: gimme a Sonic game that portrays Sonic and Amy’s relationship in a way that’s not just some cheap, uncharacteristic ‘comedy’ gag and actually develops their relationship without having to sacrifice their personalities. why does Amy always have to be the fangirl, when she’s perfectly capable of holding a normal conversation with Sonic? can’t they just be FRIENDS for once?
me: gimme a Sonic game that gives the rest of the Sonic cast the character development they deserve. what the hell happened to Cream? where’s Blaze? what’s the point of having such a colorful cast of diverse characters when they’re all just nearly blank stereotypes? flesh them out!
me: and lastly…
me: gimme a Sonic fanbase that’s just thankful that they got two Sonic games in one year, even if both games disappointed them.
Santa: so, uh, what kind of hoverboard do you want? what color? hell, do you want a DRAGON? i heard those are cooler
Some preliminary sketches of my bunny character for a children’s book I’m working on for my Illustration class. This is definitely going to change over the next few tries, but these were cute enough to share. I like keeping it simple like this 🐰
‘It doesn’t happen all at once,’ said the Skin Horse. 'You become. It takes a long time. That’s why it doesn’t happen often to people who break easily, or have sharp edges, or who have to be carefully kept. Generally, by the time you are Real, most of your hair has been loved off, and your eyes drop out and you get loose in the joints and very shabby. But these things don’t matter at all, because once you are Real you can’t be ugly, except to people who don’t understand.
2) Betta fish, they don’t require large living space, water filters, or chemicals, so they’re very safe and relatively easier to care for than other fish, and will live a fairly long life.
3) Rodents, for example, guinea pigs and hamsters; they love people and do not require large living space. It is recommended to be gentle with these creatures, they can and will bite if threatened.
4) Kittens are a good choice for littles with small living space and who need a slightly more independent animal. But this animals still need to be regularly taken to the vet and given immunizations so there is a little more responsibility to cats than the other animals.
5) Reptiles, they are non-allergenic and live a very long time so you littles out there looking for a long term best friend might want to start here.
6) Birds thrive off the attention us littles would want to give them 24/7. Birds like the parrot is a good place to start if you’ve never owned a bird before, though be cautious, they will need a ton of attention and i mean a ton.
7) Rabbits, oh my Jesus, rabbits. So soft and friendly, embodiment for the perfection of a pet for a little. These little buns are just absolutely worth it and fairly easy to care for, though again will need proper care and attention.
Just something I’ve noticed about the last sequence...
Ah, the last sequence. Everyone is understandably focused on the parts with Larry because of reasons, but I think the little moments mixed in with the Larry parts are also significant.
Dean waking up after the hex, the hex starting to affect Dean, who is having problems doing the job. A neutral premise to the events that follow, I guess. Of course, you can also google ‘rabbit symbolism’ and find out that Symbolic rabbit meanings deal primarily with abundance, comfort, and vulnerability. Traditionally, rabbits are associated with fertility, sentiment, desire, and procreation. Dean’s disgust about the corpse in the morgue can also be seen as meaningful of his desire of living, of life, of the things associated to rabbits, which are the opposite of death.
So, comfort, vulnerability, desire… Dean seeking emotional comfort and sex with feelings, right? Let’s see what comes after this.
Ha! The waitress slaps him because he didn’t show up when they’d arrange to meet after the bar closed. She was busy doing her job (she says the bar was super busy that night) so she arranged to meet him afterwards (“we were supposed to meet after close-up, but you never showed”), and she learned that he’d left like his pants had taken fire. Nothing has happened between the two of them, because hooking up was what was supposed to happen but Dean left to chase Gideon (incidentally, a Cas parallel*). In fact, when Dean and Sam first start questioning her about the night before, she sounds jealous of Larry, because Larry got the attention she didn’t. By saying that Dean had had the hots for Larry all along, she’s calling him gay and blaming him for not meeting her as he’d promised. Basically: the sex with the lady didn’t happen. When she said they blew off some steam, she was presumably gauging Dean’s reaction, because it makes zero sense for her to have actually interrupted working to get with Dean when she emphasized that she had a lot of work to do and she arranged to meet with Dean after she’d finish working for that reason.
*Dean chases a male witch that is telling his… partners in crime? companions? friends? siblings? (they use the word brother a lot but don’t seem to have definitive ideas of what they are exactly) to run and save themselves. In the promo for the next episode, someone is telling his… partners in crime? companions? friends? siblings? (they use the word brother a lot but don’t seem to have definitive ideas of what they are exactly) to run and save themselves. So if Gideon is a Cas mirror, that opens up interesting scenarios of possible foreshadowing, but I don’t want to use this post for that topic.
I am really, really sorry about this, but in an episode filled with innuendo to the brim, you can’t tell me that isn’t supposed to be… you know… a metaphor. When Sam has him sit down in front of the tv, there is a moment of miscommunication where Dean thinks Sam is going to show him a tv channel that airs porn. So the scene has a certain layer added to it - Dean for a moment wonders if this is the kind of situation of… you know the kind of thing he watches that has two guys and a lady in it, like he said in the bar in 8x23? (Not the first time he doesn’t know who Sam is - remember how when, as Dean Smith, he assumed Sam was hitting on him. But I’m digressing.)
Let’s be real, that is a flower ejaculating on a dog, and we’ve talked to the death about which characters are associated to flowers and dogs so I’ll just leave it here.
(Part of me is screaming ‘do not post this’ because this is the kind of thing that gets you flock of haters calling you delusional and other very ableist insults. Anti-Destiel people, if you’re reading this, please let me have my harmless fun in my tiny corner of the internet. My friends and I here are using a piece of entertainment to get entertained and have fun and play with it together. Don’t harass people for something like this.)
The next moment is Dean’s exhilaration at the idea that their best friend is an angel. This is Dean smiling bright at the idea of Cas. We don’t know how much of Cas he remembers at this moment, but it makes Dean happy.
What’s honorable about a miniature bar in a motel room? Everything.
The last moment is different than the previous ones - in fact I think this last moment is meant to suggest that Dean remembers the events that have occurred between the hex and the end of the spell (the entire last sequence is about Dean remembering, since he can now remember Larry, that stands for everything that happened before the hex), ergo including his conversations with Rowena (it would also explain why he feels comfortable around her after she lifts the spell and they play the joke on Sam together and laugh together - he remembers her being emotionally open with him).
So all of this happens inside the sequence of Dean riding Larry. Do whatever you want with this. You can feel free to continue believing that the show isn’t setting up for a sexual relationship between Dean and Cas, I’m not here to force people to believe one thing or another.
But the episode is about Dean ditching a pretty girl to chase a guy who is framed as a Cas parallel, in addition to Dean being proud of his riding skills and generally being unapologetic about loving unmanly things.
Fun fact: bunnies usually sit with their legs under them in case they need to make a quick escape. When a rabbit flops on their side it means they feel completely safe and happy in their current environment! As you can see, Poe is very content being petted while Mom does homework.
