also there were so many throwbacks to the “oldschool” spn in 12.19. Dean’s mixtape, the Colt, Team Free Will, all of which were dismantled in one way or another. 

The Colt being broken was almost cathartic in a personal way, just because it felt like they were saying “we’re not doing things the old way anymore”. 

While Dean’s mixtape aka his gift to Cas was briefly returned (WHICH CAS TOOK OUT OF HIS BREAST POCKET RIGHT WHERE THE HEART IS IT’S COOL IT’S FINE), Dean reaffirmed its status and that it was for Cas and regifted it (THE MIX TAPE IS DEAN’S HEART. DO YOU UNDERSTAND. IS IT CLEAR THAT I AM NOT CALM ABOUT THIS GESTURE ON BOTH SURFACE READING AND META READING).

And Team Free Will…. All I can say is that they’ve all had a lot of character development from those who once formed Team Free Will against Lucifer, and now that it’s been broken apart, there’s only waiting to see the new Team Free Will they’ll form against Lucifer’s baby, if that happens at all. 

Unlike the old Team Free Will which was Dean and Sam’s codependency issues + Cas tagged on the side because they need him to do things for them, the newly formed Team Free Will will ideally be Dean, Sam, and Cas as individuals who don’t need each other to survive, but choose each other while also knowing that they can have healthy relationships with other people outside of their little group. 

Hopefully. Hopefully this will mean that the old way is finally going to be dismantled like we’ve been promised many moons ago (*sadly stares towards carver’s general direction*) in order to build a new way out of the old pieces.

i was thinking about how the team was acting rly sentimental right before they all left to go on their separate missions in ep 9 and i was wondering why that was a Thing before i realized that this was the first time since meeting each other that they had gone their separate ways without being forced apart by external forces.

ive been pretty salty abt the way the wormhole incident was set up to this big, hyped up thing by being the cliffhanger of s1, yet ended up getting resolved in 2 episodes and never brought up again. but now i realize that this whole scene with them hugging & saying goodbye to one another was meant to convey that none of them had really let go of that event, despite the fact that they didnt have the time to properly deal with the aftermath of what happened because theyre, yknow. fighting a war.

This is sketchy as hell.

For people who see this post… why? Why would anyone like this?
This is a weird invasion of childhood moments that weren’t released by choice.

You don’t just get someone’s yearbook. 
You either go to the school those years, or you hunt this down from someone else that has one.

Everyone wants to know whatever they can about Ryan’s past, but can we at least let him decide when he releases or okays pictures from his own childhood?
It’s exciting and fun to know more about someone!
This is not one of those times.

Leaving out the name of the school makes no difference.
It’s still creepy and weird.

“For the sake of his privacy”
If there was any care at all for his privacy this wouldn’t have been posted.
Especially not on a side account with no other posts than to reblog this same thing.

I blacked out the name just for the fact that they shouldn’t get more named recognition for this kind of negative digging.

If people out there care for Ryan’s actual privacy and life, please…
Please.
Give this post no notice when you go by it.
Don’t encourage this kind of hunting stalking behavior.

Ryan should mean more to this to any true fan who cares deeply for his well being and privacy of his life.
If he wanted it released, it’d be out on an Extra Life or a stream.

Fuck.
