MASTERLIST

Dean felt restless. He had been since the moment she had left. He wasn’t able to stay as calm and collected as before, now that he knew she felt the same about him. He went over their conversation over and over again in his head. He wondered if he should have pushed her away, made her believe that he had used her. Would her hating him have made her safer? Honestly, Dean wasn’t sure, but then there was also the simple truth that he couldn’t lie to her. He couldn’t hurt her. Not anymore than he already had. All that had mattered to him was that she would believe him. To hell with everyone else. But now that he knew she did, everything wasn’t as simple anymore. If he couldn’t convince everyone else of his innocence, then he had no way of keeping her safe. As long as he was in here and Benny was out there, and Y/N was an easy target.

“Dude!” Sam’s annoyed voice broke Dean out of his trance making him blink a few times before he was really able to focus on his brother.

“Are you even listening to me? Look man, Y/N is tough as hell. She’s gonna be fine. Let’s just focus on getting you out of here,” Sam tried reasoning with his brother, who frowned as another thing dawned on him.

“Sam why are you even here?” Dean questioned, shaking him by the shoulders, effectively stopping him from talking.

“Excuse me?” Sam stared at his brother with a look of disbelief in his eyes and Dean took a deep breath, leaning back in his chair.

“You’re a state prosecutor, Sammy. You’re breaking the law by being here. I don’t wanna get you in trouble, little brother,” Dean forced a smile, trying to calm Sam. All his life he had been looking out for the boy. There was no way in hell he was letting Sam land himself in prison for him.  

“Not anymore,” Sam answered with a stubborn look on his face. A look Dean had learned better than to challenge, but the shock made him forget that.

Beauty and the Beast AU

I really liked the idea of doing a Carry On Beauty and the Beast AU after seeing the movie. After seeing @ace-artemis-fanartist do this AMAZING fanart AU version I decided to go for it! Let me know if your interested in this becoming chaptered :) The next chapters are available here: 2 3

Simon

The castle loomed darkly against the grey sky, a shadowy figure in the crisp wilderness. Simon shivered lightly in the cold weather, rubbing his arms against the wind. He wasn’t sure why he had come here; it wasn’t like he actually owed his father anything. But he had tracked him to this desolate place and felt the familiar need to keep his father close to him.

His footsteps crunching in the snow were the only audible sound. The place was incredibly eerie, even if it was beautiful. He had no idea what his father was doing in a place like this or why he hadn’t reached out to him. But it seemed dangerous; Simon’s magic swirled close to the surface of his skin.

As he reached the doorway he paused. Something told him that once he entered this place he would not come back the same. If he wanted to, he could walk away, let his father conduct his strange business in this creepy castle, and return to life in the village. Agatha was waiting for him there with a thousand promises in her brown eyes. There were a million reasons for him to walk away.

He took a deep breath and pushed the heavy doors open. His heart beat rapidly as he waited for something to jump out at him. As the seconds ticked by though, he noticed that the entryway was empty. With a frown, he stepped through the threshold. 

The room was dank, as if it hadn’t seen sunlight in many years. As he stepped further into the castle he noticed a large sitting area to his left. Seemingly on its own accord, the fireplace lit up with bright orange flames. Simon jumped back a step and put his hand over the hilt of his sword. But nobody attacked him from behind the large fireplace. 

Simon had been raised around magic his whole life, loved it even, yet he felt there was something wrong about this place. It was as if the castle dripped in something heavy, a kind of twisted magic hung in the air. 

“Look Niall! I told you he would come!” He heard someone hiss behind him.

Simon froze, trying to appear as if he hadn’t heard the voice.

“Oh, shut up Dev!” Another voice whispered.

Simon whipped around, sure that he would discover who was speaking and found himself utterly confused. Behind him, on the stairs, lay a clock and candelabra, as if left there by mistake. 

“What in Merlin…” Simon muttered.

The place was starting creep him out. Figuring it would be useful in the dark space, Simon picked up the candelabra and started up the grand staircase. The castle was obviously quite large and, in its own eerie way, very grand; but Simon could not understand what it was doing in the middle of the woods. Had his father, deluded by his own power, built a castle in forested isolation to pretend to be king? Simon had to admit that it was not that big of a stretch for his father. It didn’t, however, explain the strange whispering. Or the dark magic.

He found a corridor off to his left and walked up the stone steps, knowing that his father had a tendency to seek high ground. Eventually it became clear that he was in the dungeons of the castle, something that would normally cause him to go back to the main staircase. But he couldn’t shake the feeling that he was getting closer to his father with every step. Eventually he turned a corner and found the one cell that wasn’t empty in the vast tower.

In the corner his father lay balled up, his green cloak stained by the water dripping from the stone ceiling. Simon drew in an audible breath. Stirred by the noise, David Snow turned and looked at his son, his eyes blank. Then he jumped out of his slumped position and threw himself at the bars.

“Oh my son! My son! Thank Merlin you’ve found me!”

“Father…what happened to you?”

His father’s eyes shifted to look behind him.

“I was looking for something in the woods…I got lost. Eventually I found this place and decided to rest here for a bit. But Simon, my boy, there’s something terrible in this place.”

Simon glanced around him.

“Yeah I know. I can feel the dark magic here.”

“No!” His father yelled, grabbing Simon’s jacket through the bars, “You don’t understand! There’s a thing here, an evil creature! He’s the one who locked me up!”

Simon wondered if his father had hit his head.

“I’m sure he was a horrible man if he could do something like this to you father, but let’s not get carried away.”

His father’s eyes widened and his face went white. Weakly, he let go of Simon and backed away from him, his eyes focused on something behind Simon. His legs began to shake.

“Not a man…” His father trailed off.

Simon felt a chill run down his spine.

“A beast.”

Simon whipped around and came face to face with his father’s captor. He was taller than Simon, enough so to loom over him. His skin was as grey as the sky outside the castle, and his eyes were the same color, if not a little stormier. His hair was jet black and wild about his face, as if he hadn’t cut it in years. All of this, strange as it was, was still human enough. 

But the fangs, the horrible, sharp fangs that protruded from his dark red lips were undoubtedly beastly.  His expression matched the cruelness of his appearance, a mask of pure and utter rage. 

Simon did not know what to call this person, as he somehow had ascertained the creature in front of him was indeed a person. His sword was already drawn, but he had the sinking feeling it would do little against the menacing man in front of him.

“You dare take up a sword against me? In my own home?” The man hissed.

Simon swallowed loudly.

“I-I didn’t mean to offend you. It’s just that you…well, you surprised me.”

The man studied him.

“Well?”

“Well what?” Simon said.

“Well why haven’t you put your sword down yet? Seeing as you only drew out of bewilderment.” 

Simon deliberated. Putting down the sword meant relinquishing his best weapon and left him vulnerable. But keeping it drawn would likely make the man attack. Slowly he sheathed his sword. 

“There,” Simon said.

The man sneered.

“What are you doing in my castle? I don’t like trespassers.”

Simon clenched his jaw.

“I wasn’t trying to trespass. My father went missing a few days ago and I tracked him here. I didn’t realize the castle was occupied by you.”

The man snarled loudly.

“So you’re the son of this disgusting excuse of a man?”

Simon growled back at him.

“How dare you talk about my father like that!” Simon yelled.

The man threw him up onto the bars in a rush, barely exerting himself. Simon had been right to assume that the man was unnaturally strong. He felt his breath rush out of him against the force of the blow. 

“Your father tried to slit my throat in my sleep.”

Simon wanted to deny it, to say his father would never be capable of such a thing, but he knew that he couldn’t. Unfortunately, Simon could very well imagine his father doing just that sort of thing. The man waited for Simon to defend his father and when it was clear he wouldn’t, set Simon down.

“Simon,” His father whimpered, “He’s a monster! I only thought I was doing the right thing!”

The man laughed darkly.

“Is that so? Is stuffing your bag with dozens of my possessions doing the right thing?”

Simon looked down. His father was not a good man, Simon knew this already, but he was the only family he had left. Whether he liked it or not, he would need to break his father out of the castle.

In a flash Simon had his wand out and pointed at the monstrous man’s throat. He was prepared to say a spell when the man laughed raucously. Simon paused, his mouth hanging open in confusion.

“Going to cast a spell are you? I don’t think you’ll have much luck with that.”

Simon realized that although he could feel his magic, he couldn’t tap into it.

“Why…what’s wrong with this place?

The man pulled back his upper lip to expose more of his fangs. It was truly a terrible sight, an image that made fear run up the length of Simon’s body.

“It’s cursed. Like me.”

“What are you?” Simon whispered. 

Something flitted across the man’s expression, too quick for Simon to decipher. As quickly as it had come, the look left the man’s expression and was replaced by cold disinterest.

“Enough questions. Your father will spend the rest of his life rotting in this cell; I don’t care what you think about it. He committed treason as far as I’m concerned. “

Simon sagged in defeat. The smart move would be to respectfully apologize on behalf of his father and to leave. It was in his best interest to leave his father, and this mysterious man, behind him forever. After all, his father had committed horrible crimes; he deserved to be here.

“I know,” Simon started, “That what my father did was despicable.”

His father moaned weakly in his cell.

“But,” Simon continued, through gritted teeth, “I cannot simply leave him here. I have no hope of beating you in a fight without my magic and I don’t wish for my family name to cause any more violence in your home.”

The man frowned.

“And so?”

“And so…” Simon trailed off, “Punish me instead.”

The man’s eyes widened. From behind him he could hear his father shrieking with happiness. Simon closed his eyes, trying to quell the pain in his chest. 

“You would take your father’s place?”

Simon felt his father grab his leg through the bars. He was kissing Simon’s calf.

“Thank you my son. Oh. Bless you. I won’t forget this.”

Simon’s throat hurt.

“Yes, I will take his place.”

The man pointed in disgust to his father, who was crying in happiness on his hands and knees.

“You would sacrifice your entire life? For a coward like this?”

“Enough questions,” Simon threw the man’s earlier words back at him, “Just let him go and do what you want with me.”

The man glared at him for a minute, as if he was unwilling to accept Simon’s offer. Eventually though, he pushed Simon aside and unlocked the cell door. His father sprang out and ran down the stairs, without a backwards glance at Simon. 

“I’ll come back for you Simon! I swear it,” He heard his father shout out from below.

Simon knew it was a lie. He knew that unless he found some way to escape on his own that he would be stuck here until he died. David Snow was not a good man but he was an even worse father.

The man allowed Simon the dignity of entering the cell on his own as opposed to throwing him in. Keeping eye contact with him, the man closed and locked the cell door.

“Your father is a selfish and cruel man. But you…”

Simon waited for him to continue. With a shake of his head, the man turned away and began to walk down the stone stairway.

“You are a fool.”

With that, the man walked away, leaving Simon completely alone. Sighing, Simon slid down to the floor. He wished he could say that the man was a monster, that he had forced Simon’s hand and treated his father unfairly. But the truth was cruel, and Simon had to bite his lip to stop himself from screaming.

The truth was that his father had deserved what he got.

And the beast had been right; Simon Snow was the biggest fool of all.

anonymous asked:

Brittane! Did you watch the episode? Have you thought about my question? Would you change Lena's character aligment now? She was very willing to kill edge, and that one quote "no trial, no jury..."? What do you think?

I did! And I will start out with the simple answer. -drum roll-

The chart remains the same (Or more importantly, Lena isn’t moving)!

(First, for any wondering what we’re even talking about here, my choice for Lena’s (and other’s) moral alignment can be found here.)

So no, I would not change it. As a matter of fact, not only has the episode failed to change my mind, it has actually provided even more material to support my choice, along with some for further elaboration. I’ll explain why!

Lena Luthor: Neutral Good + Actively Good

Now, in my original post, I made a few important points that were further exemplified in Damage. Let’s revisit those:

“Neutral good characters often rely on themselves as opposed to others when things get difficult. We have seen Lena take things into her own hands to stop evil more than once. Her actions against the gang in Crossfire and her mother in Medusa are perfect examples of that.”

We can now tack on Lena feigning ignorance so that she could confront Edge on her own. Seems to be a pattern with her, amirite?

“Neutral Good characters value life, however, they will not hesitate to take the life of someone that means them harm or means to harm an innocent. They kill in self-defense or if it means harm will not come to good people.”

Lena held a gun to Edge and was nearing a point where she was ready to kill him because of the heinous things he did just to drag her, her name, her company and all she has done through the mud. She wasn’t seeking revenge because he made her look bad. Innocent children were suffering and dying because he wanted to make her look bad – because of his petty, personal vendetta against her and that was something she couldn’t allow.

So with that, simply pointing a gun at Edge does not change her alignment. But you’re also wondering about her “No trial, no jury,” line. Let’s talk about that and how she was “thinking like a Luthor.”

“No Trial. No Jury.”

Neutral Good characters won’t harm the innocent. But Edge is not innocent. So, harm him, she may. However, characters of this alignment will not murder. They do believe that evil-doers should be brought to justice and if laws need to be broken/disobeyed in order to ensure that, they will often take that action. Neutral Good characters may also consider it dishonorable to not go against laws that would prevent evil-doers from seeing justice. In other words, they are completely willing to go against the law, or take it into their own hands, if it serves a greater good. So here, Lena was willing to commit a serious crime, if it meant ending someone that was sick enough to gravely harm children (just one terrible thing he has done/wants to do).

(Note: Pulling the trigger would have definitely led to a shift in her alignment toward:

Lawful Evil -  as alignments on the spectrum of Good and Neutral will not commit murder. Only those in the spectrum of Evil will murder and the differences between the three reside in their motive. Killing Edge would not have been for pleasure (Chaotic) or her personal advancement (Neutral), but instead, to promote order. However, it should also be noted that she still would not possess enough characteristics or values to fit into the slot.)

“I’m Thinking Like a Luthor.”

This line was truly interesting because it was meant to give us a peek not only at Lena’s line of thinking concerning her planned actions at that moment but also how Lena thinks Lillian and Lex feel justified in their methods. This wasn’t Lena saying, “I’m evil,” or “I’m thinking like an evil person.” Because as Katie, herself explained, nobody sets out just to be evil. They are trying to do what they feel is the right thing. To Lex, the right thing was putting an end to Superman and ridding the world of aliens. To Lillian, the right thing is ridding the world of alien life and preventing an alien apocalypse by any means necessary. To the mother that shot at Lena, the right thing was killing the person that harmed her daughter. To Lena, the right thing was killing the man that put children in the hospital to serve an agenda and advance himself. In this moment, she saw that clearly and she was proving a point. Edge has alluded to the idea of Lena being like her mother and brother, so here, Lena was showing him just what an ‘Evil Luthor’ would be capable of. She was prepared to take extreme measures to do what she thought was right, even if those measures would be deemed questionable, wrong or unlawful.

However, staying true to Lena’s character (morally speaking), she couldn’t and most likely wouldn’t have done it, for multiple reasons. For morally good reasons, Lena is not a murderer and with her moral compass, there is still a sense of justice – deep down, she believes that Edge needs to answer for his crimes, even if he does deserve to die. For spiteful reasons, she would want to know that Edge is suffering for what he has done. To support that, let’s recall Lena’s buddy Beth Breen (Narrator voice: They weren’t buddies). Lena felt a cold and calm, distant anger over what happened. However, she also felt pleasure from knowing that Beth was rotting in a cell somewhere because of it.

Despite all of that, we know that Lena still wants to avoid becoming evil like her mother and brother. She wants to continue fighting against the standard idea of what others think of her. She desperately wants to be good. Which leads us to a little bonus: one of the two subcategories/extensions of the Neutral Good characters - The Actively Good character.

Actively Good

There are two types of Neutral Good characters: the Passively Good, and the Actively Good. The Actively Good character sees being good as an ideal that they devote their lives to. They are always willing to do the right thing and sacrifice personal desires (or even themselves) for the greater good. We have seen Lena put forth such a strong effort to do the right thing time and again. We’ve watched as she has shaped her company to make it a force for good and we’ve seen her promise the people of National City that she plans to repay the debt her family owes them. 

In Damage, we saw how emotionally distraught she was over the idea that she may have hurt the very people she’s been fighting to protect and enrich the lives of – and that she had lost their faith and trust after so recently gaining it. We’ve seen her be inspired by Supergirl and make moves in her life in an effort to be like her (Actively Good characters often aspire to be like their heroes). Finally, we’ve seen her as she has been actively prepared to risk or sacrifice her life to ensure others were safe. 

There Lena even admits to Kara how important being good is to her and it is clear that it has been for the greater part of her life. It becomes obvious that it was never just about protecting herself against those that are bad and can’t be changed, but about doing something good in her life. When it became evident to Lena that no matter how good she tries to be, people end up hurt, a major purpose in her life is swept away and she no longer believes that she is capable of doing good or that she is worth Kara’s faith in her.


There it is! Episode 3x05 didn’t sway, but only further solidified Lena’s placement as a Neutral Good character for me. 

In other words so the whole “Can you trust a Luthor” “will she/won’t she be evil” thing is beyond tired, SG writers, bye!

Regret… something that he was all too familiar with.

In his youth he had been care free, not a care in the world. School was a breeze to him, making friends less so but the ones he did make were keepers. He took dancing classes in his spare time, played soccer and rode his bike around the streets of Los Angeles. When he got older he dated, had his share of fun, and experimented before he found himself.

Honestly, he felt like nothing in his life could go wrong.

Where Rose and Tentoo travel with their Universe's Amy and Rory and the exact thing happens to Amy where she gets kidnapped pregnant but Amy and Rory actually get to keep the real infant Melody at the end. If that's too much, please let me know.

It was a good thing Torchwood survived for centuries, because Rose wasn’t sure she and the Doctor alone had the manpower to retrieve Amy from Demons Run. It was also an even better thing that Torchwood kept good tabs on the timeline of their time-travelling COO and that her status was somewhat legendary, because that meant she could pretty much take over whatever branch she happened to encounter. 

The Torchwood of the Time Period they had tracked Amy to was monitoring the quadrant Demon’s Run was located in, and no one had been going in or out. The Doctor had taken a surprisingly short amount of time to figure out a way to counter-act the Silence’s abilities, giving the Torchwood agents of that time a sort of implant in the memory centers of the brain that would store the memories the Silence made them ‘forget’ and play them back to the affected individual. As a result they were able to operate far more efficiently than before.

anonymous asked:

I find it interesting that cursed David was so disliked by many fans when his "crimes" are really not that bad. And people who rip out hearts or leave others to rot in a cell are loved and praised and just misunderstood. He was weak but at least he was trying not to hurt others.

I agree. I mean, granted, I’m not a David Nolan fan. I found him cowardly, and I think the way he handled the situation with MM and Kathryn was wrong.

But he never tried to malicious hurt people. I mean, Regina knew who she was the whole time and she still made people’s lives miserable. Rumple found remember who he was, and he still maintained his power over the townspeople.

David Nolan, while a jerk, wasn’t a bad person in the end. He was just a cowardly jerk. And it still does drive me crazy when people hold Charming accountable for what David Nolan did—Charming would never have done what David Nolan did. That was established in 2x02, and yet the fandom (though not as often as before) still hold Charming accountable for it. Heck, even Rumple had some nasty comments to Charming about David Nolan, and he should know better—he knows what this curse really was. He invented it.
