Luci is terrifying. He’s the Devil, yet he has made it so everyone loves and trusts him. He’s willing to kill his closest friends/relatives to simply get what he wants, but all he truly desires is his Father’s acceptance. He’s misunderstood so much that I think he’s reached the point where he doesn’t even realize who his true self is. He was cast out and thought of as a villain, so now he feels a need to fill that reputation.
The issue is that he could be playing himself to be that way- a misunderstood angel, hated by those he once loved- to get people to trust and follow him. He could be playing victim for his own personal gain.
Gabriel, on the other hand, is horrified of being the victim. Of being weak. He didn’t want to watch his brothers kill each other, so he fled and erased all traces of himself and literally created a new life. A life where he never ran, but instead makes others run. A life where he has his own victims fearing his wrath. One where he’s a literal god. He creates monsters (Fenris, Hel, Jormungandr, etc.) and kills those he’s against. He’s the complete opposite of a victim.
So it comes to this- would you rather trust someone who wants pity, or someone who is afraid to admit they’re weak?
All I want to see is Gabriel being the ruler of Heaven and being the first person who is actually good at it. I want him to be the feared Archangel Gabriel, the one who is known to kill any enemy without hesitation and send “God’s wrath” down to those he deems worthy of such monstrosities, while also being former Trickster Gabe who makes every angel try all of his favorite candies and sends gushes of wind towards Trump’s hair and who makes April Fool’s Day more important than Easter. I want him restoring order, fixing Heaven, setting up a whole new law system, while also teaching the angels the importance of removing their prejudice against other species. I want Gabriel slowly restoring Michael’s power in case he ever needs his brother again, and Gabriel going to Lucifer in the form of illusions trying to talk him into possibly becoming the angel he once was. I want a scene where an angel is being ordered to keep an eye out on someone, just to find out that that someone is Loki’s daughter, Hel, going on a first date with a hunter or something. I want Thor to awkwardly visit Heaven. I want angels to stare at Gabe in shock when he phones someone and calls them “Dad” just to look over at them and mouth “not that one!” I want Gabriel arranging deals with Crowley over which side gets more souls. I just want Gabriel in charge.
OK SO TODAY TORCON HAPPENED AND I STILL CANT BELIEVE BUT HERES SOME OF THE HIGHLIGHTS OR AT LEAST AS MUCH AS I CAN REMEMBER ENJOY
(and a teeny tiny bit of s10 info)
First off, so I was sitting crosslegged on the ground outside the theatre and Osric walked past so I waved & said hi. He looked at me like I was crazy at first lol but then he said hi back :)))
Just sitting around again anD MISHA COLLINS WALKED PAST ME WITH HIS MEET & GREET PEOPLES AND I HAD A MINOR HEART ATTACK I WOULDVE TAKEN PICS BUT I PANICKED
HES ACTUALLY MORE GORGEOUS IN PERSON which is not fair at all but I’m totally fine with it
Btw I’m in love with the pink pants they’re my new religion goodbye
I had a Mark Sheppard photo-op first & a girl in front of me had an Abaddon “The Devil Made Me Do It” shirt. When Mark saw it he made a face/noise of disapproval ahahaha
AFTER I HAD THE PIC TAKEN MARK SAID “THANKS DARLING” ♥♥ the king of hell called me darling and I hugged him whaaaaaaaaa
At Mark’s panel someone asked if Crowley should have a love interest & Richard Speight repeated it but said “should Crowley be screwing around with someone” and Mark said “Castiel.” MARRKKKKK
Then he said how Crowley & Dean are basically dating right now so
Mark: “If you’re not a fan of something there’s something wrong with you” wise words, sir
Mark was messing around with all the fans during the panel & being mr. sassy but at the end he stopped to say how much he loves these conventions and getting to interact with fans ♥
Oh and he also said how some of his favourite scenes as Crowley are coming up this season and that “yes, there’s a reason why we haven’t seen Crowley’s demon eyes” hmmmmmm
Rob was talking about his stroke at Torcon last year and how it was a good step for him just to be able to come back here :,,)
So @ the start of Misha’s panel he explained that the pink pants were cause he miscounted how many pairs of pants he packed lol so on his jog he stopped at some store to buy some. The only ones they had in his size were the pink ones & the worker lady told him “oh you wouldn’t want those” so he said OF COURSE he had to get them
You might’ve already seen the video where Misha says that at the last con, Jared left his credit card in the green room. So naturally misha used it to order a glass dildo off etsy and send it to jared’s house but he didn’t put his own email so jared ended up getting the order confirmation and Gen was like “uhhh jared..”
Misha said again how this season is much more personal for Cas and that he’s trying to “right some past wrongs”
Then he confirmed again that no, he didn’t hate the mishapocalypse, and said “who WOULDN’T want their face all over the internet? We’re all a little full of ourselves.. or I am at least.”
Misha also confirmed that he isn’t in the 200th episode but that if Cas had to sing a song it would be “something about rainbows or something by Metallica”
He kept joking how much we love all these middle-aged men #accurate
I could talk forever about this man but he’s honestly so humble and was saying how the fans and their stories inspire him to be a better person :,)
OK THEN MY MISHA PHOTO OP HOLYYYY every time I think about it I literally bounce up & down it’s bad
OUR CHEEKS. WERE SQUISHED. TOGETHER. AND I GOT A REALLY BIG HUG I’M SO HAPPY
I feel so so so lucky that I’m able to go this year and I’m heading back tomorrow so expect another post about that!!!
