Supernatural AU! Dean Winchester has just taken over your office after Crowley was fired for embezzling, among other inappropriate actions. I tried to change his name to Dean Smith, and it just felt all wrong when I was writing it!
Warnings: None, unless you count being hit on by your creepy yet oddly attractive boss…? Swearing. Awkward sexual situation.

”Y/N, I need to see you in my office.” The smooth British voice of your boss floating through the office door makes you want to hurl. You glance at Meg, who gives you an apologetic smile. You smooth your pencil skirt and stride quickly into his office, heels clicking on the tiled floor.
“There you are. Took you long enough.” he holds out a 20 dollar bill. “Coffee, the biggest non fat soy latte you can get. And whatever you and Miss. Masters would like.” His mouth twists unpleasantly.
“Yes, no problem.” You turn on your heel to leave his office.
“Hate to see you go, but I love to watch you leave,” He calls cheerfully at your retreating back. You suppress a shudder, ignoring your ass of a boss. You grab your knee length wool coat, asking Meg if she wants anything.
“Whatever you’re going to get is fine, thanks.” She keeps her eyes on her computer screen.
“Thanks.” He takes the Starbucks cup from you without glancing your way. “Nothing else.”
You make to leave and he calls you back. “How would you feel about dinner tonight? Just us?” He grins smugly at you over the lid of the coffee cup.
You manage a polite smile. “That’s against company policy, Fergus.” In all reality you want to throw up your lunch all over his desk. Not that he wasn’t attractive, for an older man. He was just so cocky and inappropriate, treating you and Meg like you were objects there solely for his entertainment. You’d rather cut off your own tongue.
His jaw clenches at the mention of his first name. “How many times have I told you? Either Mr. Crowley, or sir, if you must!” He straightens his red silk tie, the only color in his entire ensemble, and stands up from his leather desk chair. “I say screw it! Let’s go howl at the moon!” He’s moved around the giant wooden desk, moving closer to you, and you involuntarily back up, your knees hitting a plush chair. You overcompensate for being off balance and end up on your ass in the chair, his hands pressing into the cushion on either side of your head. You rack your brain, trying to figure a way out of this, just about to settle for kicking him in the balls when Meg’s voice floats through the door.
“Mr. Crowley? Mr. Lafitte is here to see you.”
You breathe a sigh of relief, thanking whoever was upstairs and looking out for you as you jump from the chair. In your haste to get away from Fergus you run right smack into Mr. Lafitte, whose hands reach out to grab your shoulders, keeping you on your feet.
“Sorry darlin’, are you alright?” He drawls in a heavy southern accent, light blue eyes gazing into yours.
“Yes, thank you, I’m sorry,” You mutter, escaping from this office the only thing on your mind.
“Darlin’?” He calls after you, and you stifle a groan as you turn to look at him, putting on your best poker face. “Would you mind terribly if I asked you to close the door?”
You nod silently, pulling the heavy door shut behind you and sitting back at your desk, trying to get your bearings.
“You ok?” Meg asks, clearly worried about you. You force a smile, keeping most of your attention on the blank spreadsheets in front of you. “I’ve never seen Mr. Lafitte in person. He’s kind of adorable.” She grins at you, only to get a stoic gaze back. She lets her smile slip and goes back to her computer.
An hour later you can suddenly hear Fergus shouting at the top of his lungs, although you can’t quite make out the words. You lock eyes with Meg, who’s eyebrows have nearly shot up into her hair. “What the hell is happening in there?”
“I don’t know, can you see anything?” Your view through the glass door only gives you a bookcase and part of the floor to ceiling window.
“No, just that goddamned bull statue of his.” She rolls her eyes. The door suddenly flies open, Mr. Lafitte emerging, straightening his dark grey tie.
“Ladies, I hope you both have a wonderful weekend, I’m sure your Monday will be more than pleasant.” He winks at you, your interest peaking at his cryptic words. You knew better than to ask. He gives Meg a wave before heading around the corner, where you hear the elevator ding.
“What was the president of the company doing here?” You turn shocked eyes to Meg.
“You got me, but oh my god!” She makes a show of fanning herself, making you giggle.
“Y/N!“ Fergus yells from inside the office. The anger in his voice makes you want to run to the elevator, but you make your feet move to stand in the doorway. “Call me a cab, and get Mr. Campbell on the phone.” He glances up at you, his face turning purple when he sees you’re still standing there. “NOW!“
His temper didn’t phase you; after nearly 7 years of dealing with him you were used to the mood swings. You were more focused on the fact that he was cleaning out his desk.
“Are you alright, Fer—sir?” You ask hesitantly.
“DO I BLOODY LOOK ALRIGHT?” he roars, jabbing a finger in your direction. “GO NOW!”
You turn and run from the doorway back to your desk, where Meg has hunched down in her seat, trying to remain out of his sight. “Can you call the cab company for me?” you ask, dialing the line for Mr. Campbell’s law office. Before the first ring ends there’s a cheerful voice on the other end. “Mr. Campbell’s office, Jo speaking.”
“Hey, Jo. It’s Y/N. Is Mr. Campbell in?” You twirl the phone cord around your pointer finger, chewing your bottom lip nervously.
“Sure, just a second.” She puts you on hold, a song by the Foo Fighters drifting through the receiver. You’re only on hold for a few seconds when the phone picks up.
“Campbell.” The familiar voice washes over you, all business.
“Hi, Mr. Campbell. It’s Y/N. Sorry to bother you.”
“Oh, it’s no problem. And you can call me Sam.” Once he realizes who he’s talking to he becomes less formal, his business tone changing to a warm welcome. “What’s up?”
“Honestly, I’m not sure. Fergus says he needs to talk with you. Can I put you on hold?”
“No problem, Y/N.” His warm baritone caresses the syllables of your name, and you can hear the smile behind it.
“Thanks.” You put him on hold. “Mr. Campbell, line two!” You yell to Fergus and slam the receiver down, gears turning in your head.
“Samuel Campbell?” Meg’s jaw is basically on the floor. “THE Samuel Campbell. Attorney Samuel Campbell?”
“Yea, weird, huh?” You chew your bottom lip some more, trying to put all the puzzle pieces together. You knew once Fergus was gone, they would most likely get some other ass just like him in here by Monday. But you wanted to know why; it was literally burning you up from the inside out.
“Ready to go?” Meg has been watching the clock since 4:25.
“Yep, I think so,” you reply, brushing a strand of hair out of your face.
Just before you reach the corner of the hall Fergus yells for you. “I need you to stay, I have a few things to go over.”
Meg asks if you want her to wait but you shake your head. “No, just go home, I know Cas just got back from his trip. Have a good night.”
She gives you a quick hug before stepping around the corner, and you wait until the elevator dings to trudge back into his office, tossing your coat and bag onto your desk. “Take a seat.” He demands, pointing to one of two matching chairs. Goosebumps break out over your skin, your palms feel clammy and your pulse has picked up.
“Y/N.” He smiles at you, your stomach flip flopping.
“Ferg-Sir?” You mentally cursed yourself as you correct your sentence.
“I guess we can start with where would you like to go to dinner?”
Your eyebrows raise. “The company-”
He cuts you off. “I know, the company, the company. Good thing I’m not associated with the company anymore.”
This was all the information you needed. You draw in a deep breath, pulling on all your courage to get you through this. “I think you misunderstood earlier. I do not want to go out with you, Fergus.“
He sets his jaw, the glint in his eyes making you uneasy.
“Look, it’s friday, I want to go home.” You move to stand and he pushes you back into the chair, an oomf leaving your lips.
“You think I haven’t seen the way you tease?”
“I think you’re mistaken,” you grit through your teeth.
“Oh, am I?” His tone turns deadly and dread grips your heart, your stomach filling with lead, anchoring you to the spot. “See, you’re going to give me what I want.”
“This is your last warning. Do not do this.” Your voice sounds a lot braver than you feel. He wasn’t a very big man, but he was bigger than you.
“Seems Mr. Lafitte isn’t here to rescue you this time.” He leans in closer and out of instinct you bring your foot up, connecting with the apex of his thighs. You take the chance while he’s on the floor and escape the office, not bothering with your coat until you’re in the elevator safely headed for the ground floor.
I think that the worst portrayal of Eggman is SatAM Robotnik. He's more of a Hitler-type Eggman.
It’s the worst portrayal of Robotnik simply because it isn’t Robotnik.
This sickeningly overrated in name only iteration of the character in no way, shape or form resembles Sonic Team’s character. And what only adds on to how bad this iteration of the character is is his blithering incompetence and flat characterization.
There is zilch that is even vaguely original or exceptional
concerning his villainy and evilness compared to other saturday morning
cartoon villains. And villains of his type are so overdone that
nowadays, they’re prone to parody. The character has aged that badly.
What has SatAM Robotnik ever
done that is anywhere near as noteworthy as the things game Dr Eggman
has done? Does he ever get off his fat arse and competently
engage Sonic himself in his own creations? 90% of the time, his large
behind was parked in his chair in his HQ telling SWATBots and Snively
what to do and on the very rare occasion that he did face Sonic
personally, he didn’t last more than a few minutes.
Yeah, that’s soo competent and intimidating! Losing to a 16 year old idiot so frequently![/sarcasm]
appearance is an incredibly unoriginal take on evil. From the red eyes
to the cone head and cape. It’s like his designers were trying too hard
only to epitomize a very generic portrayal of ‘evil’. The design is so unsubtle and try-hard that it’s actually amusing. Not to mention the epic level of fail the character designers exhibited when they took this;
And turned it into….whatever the fuck this is supposed to be;
He didn’t create
the Roboticizer, he stole it from Uncle Chuck. It was the SWATBots and
robotic legions that rounded up 85% of the citizens of Mobotropolis and
had them roboticized. His motives for putting Mobius under his thumb are
never elaborated upon, he’s doing it for the evulz with no meaning or
motive given for his so-called atrocities. A motive is an extremely important
aspect of a villain. He ticks every single box for generic evil. From design to mannerisms. And yet he’s considered to be the ultimate incarnation of the character in any Sonic media.
Ha ha ha. No.
game Dr Eggman held an entire world and continents ransom with a giant
space gun and to prove he wasn’t screwing around, blew up half of the
moon, fights Sonic personally in his mechanical creations, in a stroke
of diabolical genius exploits Sonic’s impulsiveness in SA2 and nearly
succeeds in killing him (Only a deus ex machina saved Sonic), utilizes
Sonic’s arrogance in order to take the opportunity to take the emeralds
from him and split the world into pieces in Unleashed, constructs
masterpieces of robotics like Metal Sonic and the two Death Eggs and by
comparison, has an enormous amount of depth character-wise. Not to
mention his appearance in both Classic and Modern forms epitomizes the
character’s whimsy and comical nature (Classic Eggman has a cape that’s
far too small and a big grin as well as a funny physique whilst Modern
Eggman is almost comically-proportioned and has a glorious mustache),
which has ALWAYS been the basis of the character’s personality and
Game Dr Eggman wants attention and power and will
attempt to establish the Eggman Empire to get this. His desire for fame
and the media spotlight is larger than his fat gut. This is called a motive. Eggman doesn’t want to dominate just for the mere reason of having things under his thumb
in a hellish technocratic dictatorship like SatAM Robotnik. That is
below him. You can see his lust for attention and respect from his
spoken desire to be a more brilliant man than his grandfather and his
eagerness to use the mind control cannon in Colours to garner the
undivided attention of the world’s population. The man is accustomed to
being very active, taking it upon himself most of the time to get things
done. He’s no Dr Claw esque villain who sits behind a screen and tells
his lackeys what to do like SatAM Robotnik.
an incredibly generic villain who is Robotnik in name only, he is both
overrated and not entirely deserving of even being compared to other
incarnations of the Doctor.
To put SatAM Robotnik’s genericness in terms of evil into perspective with an example?
Hmmmm…If Space Colony ARK was destined to impact earth;
Game Dr Eggman would try to prevent this because it is a scenario born
of spiteful, non-discerning revenge and the destruction of the planet
removes his purpose. As he said in Shadow the Hedgehog, how can he
conquer the world and make the Eggman Empire if there IS no world?
AoStH Robotnik would also try to stop it because the ARK would destroy
his beautiful visage spread in various areas of the world.
- SatAM Robotnik would sit back and lulz because that would be the more evil thing to do.
Once I was at my middle school’s lego league which was basically a scattering of eleven year olds screwing around in the computer lab at 6 pm and it was a full moon and I was a young restless asshole so I told this tall nerdy kid Steven that every full moon I allowed my body to be possessed by my dead mute ancestor and then I started talking in this choked breathy voice and collapsed and he flipped the fuck out picked me up in his arms like when Hercules picks up spirit Meg and like cried over my limp body as I began to twitch and then threw my head back and gasped really loud and then proceeded to wander around the school with this awed look on my face as I touched everything and silently marveled like I was some ancient ghost seeing a vending machine for the first time and Steven WAS SO FUCKING INTO IT HE THOUGHT HE WAS PART OF SOMETHING PARANORMAL AND WILD, he like showed me how pencil sharpeners worked and escorted me around and at one point one of my friends was like “Emily why arent you talking” and Steven jumped in like “THIS ISNT EMILY” but I shook my head like it was a secret but I actually just knew that my friends would call bullshit on me and ruin my fun but yeah Steven would ask at school weeks later about my fake dead ancestor and like ask what I was doing on full moons so to this day I live with the guilt of knowing I made an eleven year old boy fall in love with a lie.
I know we’re are all scared and upset and excited from the spoilers of Chapter 36, and because Yuu had given Mika his blood. As much as this makes me happy that Yuu was willing to go that far for Mika, I am concerned for Mika’s sake for several reasons:
1.) This is Mika’s first taste of human blood in four years. There is no way this is not going to cause some change in him. It is most likely his eyes will change to red. And so far, most of the vampires we met are ruthless and disdainful towards humans. Will becoming a full vampire change Mika’s desires for the worse? Will he be traumatized? How would this change his feelings towards Yuu?
2.) A few chapters ago, We learned for a FACT that the Moon Demon Company had been screwing around the the seraph gene in Yuu. Experimentations, pills, among other things.
Now in Mika’s case, we are unsure. Unlike Yuu, the vampires have not touched the seraph gene in Mika (as far as we know). I mean, only TWO vampires know of Mika and Yuu’s case, which are Ferid Bathory and Krul Tepes, and I find it unlikely they touched the gene in Mika. I mean, Ferid himself was going on about how disgusting it was that the humans were even TOUCHING the gene in Yuu. And Krul, too for that matter. (But then again, Ferid was leaking information about the Seraph of the End project to someone, presumably human, and we have no idea what his goals are concerning Mika. Even Krul herself said she needed the Seraph of the End project for her own personal goals, unbeknownst to the Progenitor Council. But I think it’s safe to assume that neither had touched the gene in Mika. Anyway, I digress.)
Is the seraph gene still active now that he’s a vampire? Or is it dormant? What is going to happen the moment Mika turns into a full vampire? Remember that Mika had just taken blood from Yuu, another holder of the Seraph gene. Will this only make the gene in Mika stronger, or will it cancel it out with Mika’s transition into a full vampire, making it obsolete.
3.) This is in addition to number 2. A few chapters ago, Yuu had taken two pills, in addition to the one he had taken earlier. Three pills. Let’s not forget what we learned from Shinoa’s earlier argument with Guren in Chapter 14/ Episode 12 “Everyone’s a Sinner”.
These were the same pills that caused Yuu to go berserk whilst in Seraph Mode. All rationality was gone, and he didn’t even recognize Mika or Shinoa.
Kimizuki might have stopped Yuu from going Yuucifer on Crowley’s ass, but the pills are still in his bloodstream. Even Asuramaru himself wasn’t able to completely get rid of the effects of the pills completely.
And now Mika has sucked Yuu’s blood. Mika indirectly took the seraph enhancing pills. Now, this may not be an issue, since Mika’s is incidentally becoming a full vampire at the same time. And since Mika’s seraph gene wasn’t experimented as much as Yuu’s had in the past four years, it may be obsolete. However, this is still three pills in Yuu’s bloodsteam that Mika may be consuming.
Which means there’s a chance Mika will go berserk too.
Now I’m hoping, as I’m sure you all are too, that all of this is just speculation and that this will not have a negative effect on Mika whatsoever. But then again, Yuu went berserk in their last reunion in Shinjuku.
I’m not sure if Takuya Kagami is going to pass up the opportunity of Mika going all out psychotic in their second reunion. For Mikayuu’s sake, I hope so. And if not, I hope Yuu will be able to save Mika again.
