So I don’t know if this is late or early considering technically the episode doesn’t air till Sunday, but whatever, here we go:
There was only one awesome thing about this episode, which was anything to do with the Night King and the Wight Dragon. Everything else was a complete departure from all we’ve come to learn about these characters, but that aside, let me try to understand it as best as I can.
We start the episode on Jon and the rest of the A Team trudging along and making fun of Gendry. I actually really liked all these scenes because the male bonding was done well, the dialogue was funny and the chemistry between these characters was believable. I mean I didn’t know I needed a Tormund x Sandor best friendship till that episode, especially when they begin talking about Brienne. Mr Tormund “I want to make babies with her” Giantsbane. It was brilliant, needless to say.
What’s not so brilliant but a great moment of foreshadowing was Tormund’s conversation with Jon. He essentially tells Jon that although Mance Rayder was a great man, his pride got a lot of people killed, echoing Jon’s own words to the man:
“"Isn’t their survival more important than your pride?”
And of course Dani’s words to Jon in the Cave of Invisible Chemistry.
The problem I have with this is that it comes from Tormund, a wildling man whose pride is as much as a defining factor as his ginger beard. But whatever, I see what they’re trying to do here. They’re trying to justify what happens later because if Tormund can understand the dire need for Dani’s help over his own pride then Jon should too, and he does, of course, as we later find out.
Here’s the thing though. I am still firmly of the camp that it’s all a ruse, and this is the moment Jon realises he might have to bend to Dani’s will for her alliance. He doesn’t want to and he knows fully well that the Northern houses will not accept her as their queen in any capacity, but all he cares about is his people’s survival through the Long Night. He’s willing to lose his kingdom for their safety. And this thought becomes even more concrete in Jon’s mind the moment Dani arrives to save his dumb ass with her three dragons. The look of awe on his face as those dragons rain hellfire on the wights is indicative of this because up until that point, he’s had a very abstract understanding of what these dragons are capable of and how they can help him. Seeing it in person, seeing them turn a hopeless situation into a victory, Jon fully understands now that the only way to survive is for Dani to fight with them with her dragons.
Okay, so, I stepped into the Iron Bull tag, which given my current introspective mood (I’ve been drafting parts of Prodigal and it always leaves me thinking about Bull’s nature when I do that) was probably a mistake.
Because now I’m gonna write what I’ve been trying to put into words since the Bull tag started exploding.
Obs. beyond this point are spoilers for Trespasser. I realise my blog hasn’t been spoiler-free at all these past few days (I’m excited dammmit!) But I’ve been trying to tag and warn everything, and keep it solely to the text post. That said, if you do not want to be spoilt, do not read this post.
But Dipper had a better idea: we burn all my Bill Cipher artifacts instead. So we did. My scrolls, carpets, window… everything I’d ever collected with Bill went into the fire. We made s’mores and told stories until sunrise.
Summary: Reader Insert - Soulmate AU/Enemy AU based off this post: the universe determined your soulmate and enemy at birth, giving you one hint for each; their initials on one of your wrists. BUt what happens if BOTH sets of initials are for the same person? Set during CA:TWS
Word Count: 2020
Warnings: Swearing, mentions of violence, angst(ish), TWS spoilers (but seriously, what are you DOING here if you haven’t seen that yet?)
A/N: Okay, I’m taking a stab at this. I wanna thank @writingwithadinosaur (as usual) for helping me with EVERYTHING EVER, and being totally fabulous! And @imhereforbvcky for encouraging me to try in the first place.
I tagged everyone who liked/reblogged/commented on the announcement post cause I am a needy bitch, I need validation! But I am MORE than happy to add OR remove you if you’d like. There are several that didn’t work and they look like this
You were born with two sets of initials on your wrists; one set was your enemy’s, the other was your soulmate’s. Trouble was, you didn’t know which was which. The marks appeared on people’s wrists when their enemy or soulmate were born, for you, the marks were already there when you were born; so your soulmate and enemy were both older than you, by at least a few minutes. The marks were meant to burn a little bit when you crossed paths with your people, but you’d never felt anything. You would have thought you were one of the few in the world who didn’t have a predestined enemy or soulmate if not for the lingering W.S. on your left wrist, and J.B.B. on your right.
Life moved on, though you’d yet to cross paths with either your soulmate or your enemy, the initials remained. The marks would fade if the person they represented died, so you knew they were still alive, but you never found them.
You had a bad feeling. Work was tense, that wasn’t unusual; SHIELD was always tense to some extent, but this was different. Nick Fury had just been killed by an unknown assailant. Captain America was the last person to have seen him alive, and according to gossip, Alexander Pierce and Jasper Sitwell were blaming him for the whole event. You found that unbelievably hard to swallow for two reasons.
Reason #1: Natasha Romanov was a friend to you. You had no idea if she thought of you that way in return, but you trusted her and she worked with and trusted the Captain. Nick Fury had been a stable presence in her chaotic life; his death had hurt her. You couldn’t see a man who was her fellow Avenger killing Fury, for that reason alone.
Reason #2: Jasper Sitwell and Alexander Pierce were smarmy, slimy, creepy guys. At least they were to you. You’d never trusted them, and with it coming down to their word against Steve Rogers’, you trust Steve more by a mile.
The Ten Types of Fans on Tumblr, as told by Supernatural Characters:
1. The Becky
Generic unhinged fangirl. Has zero concept of socially acceptable behavior, is probably a multi-shipper, and is okay with the concept of sibling incest. Posts nothing but surprisingly well-written erotic fanfiction, and might legitimately have a member of the cast tied up in their basement.
2. The Gabriel
Posts nothing but memes and crack edits. Will find a way to make even the most heartbreaking scene seem comical and ridiculous, and you will love/hate them for it.
3. The Castiel
This person is an innocent in a world of shell-shocked Tumblr veterans. Is generally well-mannered and respectful, despite having to put up with a lot of bullshit from everyone else. Doesn’t get sexual innuendos, and thinks shipping has something to do with boats.
4. The Ambriel
Appears cute and innocent, but is also sort of ignorant and occasionally says something super offensive without even realizing it. Is probably fourteen or younger. Will not last long on this site.
5. The Sam
Will honest-to-God post a ten chapter essay on why his OTP should be canon. Comes up with the bizarrely good headcanons, edits, and theories. Ships Destiel like crazy. Is obviously smart, and probably went to an ivy league college. You will wonder why they’re not doing something more productive with their life.
6. The Crowley
Not to be mistaken with the Sam, this person is at least ten times smarter than everyone else, but more of a jerk about it. They will complain about everything, from poor writing, to continuity errors, to drama within the fandom.
They also probably post a lot of porn.
7. The Charlie
Posts the most adorable fanart, reblogs all your stuff, and sends you a *hugs!* in response to sad posts. Generally someone you just really want to hang out with, and probably has the best multi-fandom blog you’ve ever seen.
8. The Metatron
Is generally the worst in every regard. Obnoxious, disrespectful, doesn’t tag spoilers, and will try to convince you that your favorite characters are straight.
9. The Bobby
Legit oldest and most experienced person in the fandom. Has lived through all the drama, and has probably met the entire cast on multiple occasions. Should be treated with the utmost respect and reverence at all times.
10. The Dean
Is just completely obsessed with Destiel. Does things on Tumblr that they would never admit to in real life. Posts nothing but erotic Castiel fanart, fanfiction (both fluff and smut), and bisexual pride posters.
Summary: While Sam and Dean try to beat Lucifer to Cas and Kelly, you’re left behind with Crowley who isn’t acting like himself.
Pairing: Crowley x Reader
Word count: 6975 (Honest to Chuck, I was shooting for 3k)
Warnings/Tags: Season 12 Spoilers (if you haven’t watched the finale you can technically still read this and come out with the general gist, but you’ll definitely be missing out on some things), smut, unprotected sex (wrap it up folks), foreplay, ummm, filth? (Jesus, how did Crowley come out with tamer tags than Gabe?) a little bit of everything as far as feels go (fluff, angst, humor)
Requested by: @devilsnevercry1388 Quote: “This must be what going mad feels like.” Kink: Surprise Sex
Author’s Note: The poetry Crowley uses is from Part II of Rime of the Ancient Mariner by Samuel Taylor Coleridge. They are my absolute favorite lines from that entire piece and just jumped into my head as I was writing this.
Special thanks to: To my wonderfully amazing beta @sumara62, aka my Jedi Master wise in ways of the force and the comma. You don’t just catch my mistakes, you help me bring to life what I’m trying to convey and I am grateful you know what my wordy ass is trying to say ;) I also want to thank the lovely @blondecoffeecake for keeping my muse fed and helping me take a direction in this story when I got stuck. Oh, and extra thanks for the future crack fic. Probably coming around Christmas.
Tagging everyone at the end
The world sits on the edge of a precipice, the Winchesters scrambling to keep it from toppling over. You, on the other hand, sit back at the bunker, arguing with a rather pissed off Crowley who does not like having his hand attached to the furniture. Not that you blame him. You’d be a little miffed if your friends got a little stabby as well.
It doesn’t matter how many times you tell Dean not to leave you with the king of Hell. You might as well be telling him that one day Sam will die. It skitters across his radar before he deftly bats it far out into the stratosphere where reminders of his own mortality have taken up residence. For the most part, you’ve been able to avoid any close, direct contact, but everyone’s luck has to run out sometime.
You just hope yours is the only one that does today.
The problem isn’t that you don’t like Crowley or you think he’s a danger. It’s that you don’t know how you feel about him. The last few years have been especially confusing, the boundaries blurring between ally and enemy, and he’s taken to walking that fine line of cooperation until it benefits him to step off again. The uncertainty puts you in dangerous territory, walking something equally as thin and fragile and you don’t know anyone in their right mind who would want to star in a tightrope act without having a safety net in place.
Yet, out the door your friends run, though you can’t be mad at them. Not only are they trying to stop the devil and save the world, but leaving you behind is their way of protecting you. Leaving Crowley, however, is the one thing they are doing to cover their own hides, and you can’t blame them after the secrets the demon has kept.
Though it does leave you with a royal pain in the ass.

You’d hoped that learning that Nick Fury was alive would be enough to distract the others from your outburst, it had distracted YOU, albeit momentarily. But the second you were alone with Nat, the questioning began.
“Spill,” she grunted as she gently rotated her injured shoulder, testing the stitches.
“I’m not sure how much there is to ‘spill’ for you Nat,” you hedged, shrugging your shoulders.
“Bullshit. You heard the soldier’s name and cursed. Now i’d like to what the reason was for that. So, spill.”
“I’d like to hear this as well,” Steve stepped around the corner of the curtain blocking Nat from the view of the rest of the room, Sam right behind him.
“Oh fuck it,” you grumbled. You pushed your sleeves up, exposing your wrists, and their marks; you showed them to Natasha. “They’ve never reacted till today, and it was only the left one.”
I'm just saying you should let me out of here and everything will be Super Great for Everyone. I will briefly put off murdering your children and you'll be the King's Sister which is totally like being the Queen except y'know, lesser.
here are the remaining ‘mons in sketch form since there’s no way i will finish all of these in two hours before the year ends. i had a great lack of motivation to do anything this december (…more like the whole fall/winter tbh) so this was almost inevitable… maybe next year will be better in every way!
LISTEN MY PEOPLE LETS GET THEM TO FIRST THIS WEEK, SHAL LWE
(don’t reply to this tell me we can’t or can because of spoilers cause i don’t know them and i don’t wanna know them, but i wanna get them to #1 and i want fandometrics to just use a freaking gif of them already-)
SO TAG EVERYTHING YOU HAVE WITH BELLARKE, TRY TO KEEP IT ON THE FIRST 5 TAGS.
I want to warn you that you’re going to see a lot of this “ashdkwpejsk” and a lot of this “OH MY GOD” and a lot of this “😭😭😭😭😭😭” on my blog.
And maybe a lot of this “🔪🔪🔪🔪”
I’m going to try to keep this blog spoilers free (we all know it’s not happening!! Lolol). I’ll tag my spoilers as “mysme spoilers” or “mm spoilers” so you can blacklist it. Also, remember this is not a r*ka friendly blog and if something happens… I’m gonna be ranting.
