Supernatural 01x03 and Little Green Army Men

Part 3 of Falling Deeper in Love With Supernatural, Episode by Episode 

Before I get going, let’s just get the shameless Dean appreciation out of the way, because yeah, this episode has one of my top ten Dean shots ever (and that is a mighty long list, so it’s really saying something).

Okay, now that that’s over, I can ramble.

Now, there are many things I absolutely love about “Dead in the Water.” For one, I sort of having a preoccupation with sacramentality in Supernatural. The relapsed Catholic in me can’t help but think about how fire and confirmation (starting a new path) are connected, how mirrors relate to the act of confession, willing or not, and how water, the material connected to baptism, often is juxtaposed with that sacrament.

In this episode, water is death (literally, that’s the title guys), which is as pretty far away from baptism as one can get. Unless one considers baptism a form of rebirth, and death a form of rebirth as well.

(Of course, because the visual storytelling is top-notch in Supernatural, the water of Lake Manitoc fluctuates from looking crystal clear to black. Sometimes in the same frame. God, this show!)

All interesting thoughts, none of which I will entertain here.

No, because what I love most about “Dead in the Water” is Dean.

Indy to Tumblr

Hey everyone~ Now before you start strolling past this post I want to tell you something. This has been on my mind for the past hour and I want to let it out. 


I love you guys! 


Since I’ve came to tumblr, like most people, I didn’t know how it worked, I didn’t know how to talk to people or if it was even safe to do so.

@amaranth121 was the main reason I found tumblr, because of her amazing Gajevy fanfic Gold and Iron on ff.net (Totally recommend you read it). I saw she had a tumblr and I wanted to become her friend because she’s super awesome and inspirational. And from there I met @aya-eisen @fairytailpeach @ottottatertots @kiss-me-khaos and @neofeliis aka @neen-writes (from her awesome now completed Gajevy fanfic Iron Heart) and so many others

I met @makeithayle after an awesome release of @amaranth121‘s Iron and Gold chapter. (We were doing a count down and everything on tumblr, it was amazing, everyone was going crazy XD). Me and her became friends not to long after. She’s amazing and im so happy i met her. 

@levymcgarden17 was my first friend on tumblr that I started talking to regularly, ironically we came together through a friendship zodiac post (yes i still remember) and it said that our zodiac signs were meant to be best friends and now I talk to everyday (or aleast try to XD). We are such awesome friends now. She’s the one that talked me into making Shalily. Just literately one day we started talking about Shagotte and Pantherlily and about this awesome story they were in called Hard Liquor by Mugole (i know i spelled her name wrong ^^’). And everything just kicked off from there. We just started a post about Shalily and everything just feel into place. Honestly I couldn’t have gone this far with Shalily without her help. She’s awesome.

Now @emmyhippo, Let me tell you about Emmy! She is my hippotastic partner in crime (We robbed Cold Stone once XD JK JK) She makes me smile and laugh and i will love her the grave and back. She’s is one of my administrators (along with @levymcgarden17 )for @shalilyweek. She’s actualy the one that came up with the idea of having the first shalily week. She helps me a lot with it and she’a super SUPER HILARIOUS without even trying XD! She helps me a lot and she’s one of those main ppl i talk to everyday, I appreciate her a lot! 

Speaking of @shalilyweek My wonderful weird friend @goldxnfairy is the reason the blog even came to be. She suggested it and that’s the reason it’s even alive today. She’s a crazy Gajevy fan and also the writer of the amazing Gajevy  fanfic Kissed by the Sun on ff.net (she’s know as ro-blaze on there). Even though we live far away from eachother and live in different time zones, we find ways to keep in contact, we both agreed that the world needs werid ppl like us to keep it moving round XD.

@xxgajevyloverxx is one of my first friends. She is awesome and beautiful. Me and Emmy ship her with eating-iron XD! She’s so sweet and caring not to mention a PHENOMENAL artist (I couldn’t draw like her for the life of me). I love her to death and i care a lot about her. I know she has a lot of followers and im only one of the tiny ones but she is amazing and she means a lot to me. 

@rae-tan and @little-miss-heartfillia! These girls are absolutely the bomb! They have made 2 of my top favorite long one-shot fluffy shalily fanfics, Shot at Love by @rae-tan and Ink and Petals by @little-miss-heartfillia. I now talk to these 2 every day and they just are so so amazing and they are so fun to talk to!!  I’m so glad to have these 2 as my friends! 

I would just like to thank @little-miss-heartfillia for being the best writing partner ever, I know we haven’t gotten finished with our shalily fanfic Sneakers on Pointe (SoP) but just know I couldn’t have gotten nearly this far on it without her. She is AWESOME.

@peoniespoppiesandowlsohmy @nuithine are amazing artist! They made wonderfully amazing shalily fanarts for me and now i talk to them a lot and now my friends too! They are so sweet and also amazing people with @peachpurin who made is the artist of the VERY BEAUTIFUL AWESOME AMAZING Shalily fanart that is now the blog profile picture of shalilyweek and my blog cover and also my laptop and cellphone screen save. And its an amazing and inspirational and perfect replica reference for SoP. 

@gcat-enthusiast! She is also super cool awesome and beautiful and my lovely friend! She’s gives me amazing feedback when it comes to SoP and other stuff. She has helped out with songs to that could be awesome references for SoP, and also deals with me tagging her on numerous of times on aesthetics when i post them XD

@nightlockedx3 @xternel @appendsweets @aarekusandoraa @ellenhasarts @approvesport @watermelonomnom @strike-back-fairy-tail @chello8893 @teekayeh @joannaangels @sallteas @strike-back-fairy-tail SO many others

ALL THESE PEOPLE ABOVE  ALL THE WAY TO THE BEGINNING OF THIS POST IS AWESOME! Even if I didn’t tag you on anything you are still awesome!  Some of these people I don’t talk to a lot, I just started talking to, I’m just too shy to talk to, or they are super busy with stuff  and I’m not able to talk to them that much (which I completely understand) or that I talk to a lot, like the amazing @nightlockedx3 (he’s a awesome guy, wonderful to talk to).

 
I love you guys! You make my experience on tumblr epic! So whenever you feel like you’re not that great or ppl don’t care about you, just know that I care. You guys are the greatest. THIS IS ALSO TO THOSE I DIDN’T TAG!! YOU ARE THE BEST! AND DON’T YOU EVER FORGET IT and I hope someday we can be friends. 

Thanks for taking the time to read this. I appreciate it, A LOT

God bless you all and have an amazing rest of your day (or night)

My 2013 Top 10! 

My shots that I am the most proud of from this year :)

It was a super exciting year - I got better at the technicalities of taking a photograph (and learned to use some of the awesome features of my camera!), and was able to do some cool macros and portraits and get into dance photography! 

Thanks to all of my followers - old and new! - for your likes and re-blogs, it means so much to me! 

Wishing you all a lovely year ahead :)

Hey Alex :) I know you have a fav one shot list, but it hasn't been updated in a while so I was wondering if you had any more you would add now (maybe more recent ones)? two shots are also great... just looking for some more fics i can read quickly as breaks while studying for finals! Hope you have a great day :)

 Ahh yes sure thing! That list was only my top ten one shots. I’m gonna do a whole list of all my fave one/two shots. Actually I’ll just do fave fics under 5k. This may take me a while but I want to okay. Some will be repeats though but just go with it :P
