pterodactyl-screech

Learning that “quiet time” may not be the most appropriate title for the few minutes I sneak away with my bible and coffee [*insert happy baby pterodactyl screeches here*], but this is the season that needs it most. Love that I can open the same book again & again and gain something new every time!

I can't wait for your Timeless liveblog! I fully expect that there will be wall to wall flailing, pterodactyl screeching, and other expressions of fangirl emotion.

well i have another hour to kill at the library, and then i have to go to my evening tutoring appointment, so it’ll be a while yet. i am still staying off my dash, WHICH IS HARD. but from what i have gleaned here and there, i’m gonna die. cool. cool. i’m ready.

Whether it’s studying for a big test or showering during a hard week. Don’t beat yourself up. Trying is powerful, but no human succeeds every single time! 

“Devastatingly Handsome Friend”

“You’re my family”

“I love you”

“I love all of you”

“We’re fighting for you Cas”

“We’re family, and we don’t leave family behind”

“Let’s go home”

“I almost lost one of my boys”.

12x10 - “Pterodactyl Screeching into the void” - Part 1

My title is borrowed from @postmodernmulticoloredcloak comment on my crazy blogging after first watching this episode earlier. I feel like it is a fitting title for how this episode made me feel. To clarify, these are very very happy pterodactyls.

Steve Yokey wrote this episode and he appears to have well and truly taken up the gap left when Robbie Thompson sadly left the show. In fact this episode to me channels the ghost of Robbie in many different ways. From the fanfiction-esque moments of poor suffering third wheel Sam, to the meta nod to Charlie Bradbury, there is much of Robbie to be found here. Basically, it was bloody perfect.

I feel like there is so much to talk about in this episode that fandom will be chewing on it for months if not years to come. Yokey has picked up the characterisations brilliantly, and seems to have an understanding of what the fandom desperately craves in terms of Castiel, his character, his personality and his development. I adored his sass in this episode. Some other writers *cough*bucklemming*cough* struggle to really capture Castiel’s sass and humour. Showing their lack of understanding of Castiel’s persona and his intelligence and instead writing him in a way that is jarring and sometimes basically stupid. Castiel is far from stupid. In this episode he was written perfectly, in a way I haven’t seen since Edlund’s time. Is that a sweeping statement? Maybe. But I’m still riding my high so let me have it this time.

This episode gave us three of my favourite things. Badass and Sassy Castiel, Overprotective grumpy husband Dean, and poor long suffering brother Sam. (baring in mind this is how they are usually written in fanfiction nowadays this is exactly my jam and I am so so happy to see it play out on screen. Seriously who sold their soul to Crowley for this episode?)

This review will also be in two parts. Because I have so freaking much to say about it.

The first part will focus on destiel, the second on everything else including Castiel’s emotional arc (as separate from destiel), his relationships with angels, angels and gender and Lily Sunder’s character.

Installment II of my study session on the floor. I’m at the part where Europeans are realizing that maaaybe there’s a correlation between cleanliness and health in the 1850’s when mi gente the Aztecs had been washing and not dying of the bubonic plague since BCE. Yet these guys’ great grandpas had the nerve to call them “savages”. Ugh History classes make me bitter,
