Seven Things About Supernatural: 12x11 - “Regarding Dean”

Let me begin with the caveat that I prepared myself for this episode thus: 

Not pictured: the communal emergency ice cream.

In my defense, the wine was for @treefrogie84​, but I did finish the dregs so that she could have, you know, a work night, and I did several shots in rapid succession about 2/3 of the way though the ep.  SO.

  1. Hey, so y’all remember when Dean took a depressing shower in 9x18, and we reblogged it for years because wet Dean is nice to look at?  Yeah, Dean riding a mechanical bull in slo-mo is this year’s shower, and I a-fucking-okay with that.  

    And really, let’s just take a moment to appreciate that a) the bull’s name is Larry, b) Dean was canonically an “amazing” rider, c) so amazing that he also had some kind of sexual experience with an on-duty waitress afterward, d) this all goes down at a place called The Pickle Jack Shack, and e) and that montage ends in Dean falling back on the bull, sensually – as if spent – to the words “my son you’ll be a man.”

    Because you guys, that right there?  That thing where Dean is totally unapologetic about either experience, and is not put off by Sam pointing out that the bull’s name is Larry and then not being like, “OKAY, BUT FOCUS ON THE CHICK” is possibly the queerest thing that has crossed my screen in the last 48 hours.  If you’re not reading dean as bi/pan/queer – and probably a versatile power bottom – I am not sure what I can do to convince you at this point.
  2. I think a lot of us went into this episode expecting the memory loss Dean experiences to be chronological, when really it was multiple waves of degradation.  It starts with a period of unconsciousness and a blackout of the night before, and then progresses from simple forgetting and difficulty with basic things into increasing helplessness and innocence.  

    What’s interesting is that Dean himself never really goes away.  He loses his sophistication and a lot of his affect, becoming more and more innocent as he goes, but his moral compass and drive to help others never disappears.  There are things that are in Dean’s nature that are shaped by nurture, but they’re always there.  

    He’s silly.  He loves what he loves.  He does not like being a killer.  He does not like arguments in which the ends are supposed to justify ugly means.  Even when he is losing everything up to and including his name, these things are true.  

    (Incidentally, the mirror scene is where I started drinking in earnest.)
  3. Ooh, this is an interesting ep for Watching While Pagan.  

    - The glyph Gideon (whose family appears to be Irish based on their surname, though given names are a bit wonky) uses is ogam.  Ogam is an Irish alphabet developed in either just before or right around the time of Christianization in Ireland.  The alphabet was later popularized by the Welsh “Druid Revival,” which was separated by centuries from actual druids in the sense of the priestly/scholarly class among ancient Celtic language speaking peoples.  The “language of trees” stuff is also a late invention by Robert Graves; most ogam are not named for trees or associated with them necessarily in older lore.

    - The characters of the glyph written strangely in the sense that it’s got diagonal feda on two axes, while the ogam alphabet only has diagonals going in one direction.  It doesn’t make sense for the reversed diagonals to be read alone – they’re the same fid! – and vertical ogam is traditionally read bottom to top.  

    - Ignoring orientation issues, the characters are (from bottom to top) MUIN - neck, trick; GORT - field, garden, MUIN (again); and NGETAL - wound, charm.  From right to left, IPHIN - sweetness, and UILLEND - elbow.  As a collection of things, it’s a reasonably coherent charm because it twists/bends, works with the physician’s skill, ruins the garden with tricks, etc.

    - Also, “ancient Druid” is not a language, and Celts were not a homogenous group but a broadly dispersed collection of cultures and peoples who shared a language group.  SO.
  4. I have not always been a fan of Rowena – her early arc was uncomfortably familiar to me in bad ways – but I really loved her in this episode.  

    In terms of the present she’s learning to adapt and thrive on her own terms, fnding new and satisfying ways to make her way – including, apparently, playing high-stakes poker in the most atmospheric server closet ever – but we’re also getting more glimpses of her as a whole person with a history.  

    More and more we’re seeing Rowena as someone who has survived as an underdog, who has been rejected over and over because she wasn’t what other witches considered worthy.  She’s still not the greatest of witches – Catriona Loughlin immobilizes her relatively easily – but she’s still got significant skill, especially if she’s got good documentation at hand.  She’s also got some regrets, and a grudging respect for the Winchesters’ work and world view. 

    I’m tempted to say that Rowena is becoming Sam’s Crowley in the sense that she’s the one he hates to need when things are happening that he lacks the esoteric chops to handle.  Also, like Crowley, she’s got the measure of the boys well enough to leave Dean a series of progressively more hilarious notes in the Impala.  

    Also, she gives her poppets googly eyes.  GOOGLY EYES.  That alone is Witch Goals, frankly.  
  5. Lots of really excellent brother moments, mostly at Dean’s expense. Sam takes him to task and gives him shit for what looks like a deeply irresponsible night, is amused/smug/teases him about not remembering “blowing off steam” with Elka, etc.  The Post-Its are also great, because they’re this simple gesture that highlights Sam doing his best to be helpful and protective.  Dean may win, though, simply for having the sheer gall to prank Sam with Rowena’s help.

    Also, did anyone else get the impression that Dean remembered his ordeal afterward?  Because the BM scene at the end made it seem to me that he did, or at least had some strong impressions of what happened.   
  6. Okay, but can the record reflect that this episode put Jared’s supports for waffles over pancakes into Dean’s mouth?  

    (From Houscon 2016 - video starts at 13:34)

    Audience Member: “PANCAKES OR WAFFLES?”
    Jensen: “Pancakes or waffles?  Again, solid question.  I’m gonna go flapjacks.”
    Jared: “And true to form, I’m gonna go waffles.  You get more syrup to surface ratio on the waffles.”
    Jensen: “This is why pancakes: waffles catch the syrup.  The syrup spills off of pancakes and onto my bacon.  ‘Cause maple bacon?  Come on!”
    Jared: “Bacon wasn’t a part of this conversation, Jensen!”
    Jensen: “It is now!  And you know it’s always a part of the conversation.  Bacon’s never off-limits.”
    Jared: “Waffles – waffles are like several little bowls –” 
    Jensen: “This is not a debate!”  
    Jared: “You can dip your bacon in the waff–” 
    Jensen: “I just said that maple syrup blends with the bacon.”
    Jared: “I can use the bowl of syrup to pick up the bacon.”
    Jensen: “I hate your face.”  


    Meredith Glynn, we salute you. 
  7. If you want to do yourself significant personal injury, go listen to and/or read the lyrics to “Broomstick Cowboy” and think about Dean Winchester.  

Bonus Thing: KUMA.  KUUUUMA.

Bonus Thing #2: So are we entering tonight’s roofies-that-were-not-roofies into the litany of ways in which the show has talked about sexual assault with men as the targets?  It’s ambiguous – it’s a pretext, not reality – but as the conversation continues between Sam and Elka, you see her shift from ha-ha, these guys are dicks to oh shit, oh shit, this guy got hurt and I maybe hurt him too.  That was…uncomfortably real. 

Bonus Thing #3: Dean Winchester will man the flashlight.  Good job, Dean.

Carly Shannon (Traveler 3465) - The Tactician


=======
a couple of reasons why I love Carly:
- in ep 4 she steps in between Hall and her team members every time he tries to talk shit about them (and the look on his face omfg go and rewatch this episode)
- she cares for Jeffery. she doesn’t have but she does. so much.
- she steps in and take charge every time MacLaren disappears
- she kills the huge silent kidnapper guy in ep 5. she kills him with her TEETH. while hurt, tired and bleeding (and others cheers for her in the background and it’s awesome)
- she repeatedly punches her asshole ex in the face and she look amazing while doing it

more probably to come

The First Day

Kind of a post ep but not really? More of a “between eps”. In any even I’ve finally broken my drought, kind of. Maybe sometime during the break over Christmas I might be able to finish the other 10 stories I have on my phone and in my notebook. I kid you not. There are at least 10 post eps I have half written or have jotted down plots/ideas for. This is just the first one I’ve been able to finish. Anyway, hope you enjoy!

When he walked into the hospital room that night he could immediately tell she was hiding something. To the outsider she probably looked fairly nonchalant. She could have probably even fooled Callen and Sam with that poker face of hers but not him.

He let it be for the moment, greeted her with a kiss and sat by her hip on the bed. He told her about his day, how Callen and Sam had wound up playing another game of one-on-one basketball and that without her there to team up with and challenge the partners, things had gotten ugly.

had i dream i was with old school friends and one was like ‘i loved the first ep of season 4 of sherlock, it was so amazing have you seen it’ and i was like ‘are you out of your mind what the fuck? shut the fuck up give me one reason why it was good’ and she looked me dead in the eyes and went ‘mary died.’

5x17:

-What is up with Mary’s hair in the first part of the ep? It looks really strange :S

-I love how much Sharon is cooperating with Morales. I wonder if she would have done it 5 years ago. Probably not. The way the team has evolved since the show started is amazing.

-I kind of get why Rusty knows more about what Andy should do with Sharon. Straight men often don’t know exactly what women want, even after years and years of being together. I always have to make sure that my dad buys flowers and such on different occasions. Rusty has been living with Sharon for 5 years now and they’ve spent a lot of time together, especially in the first 3 years. There are many conversations between them that we didn’t get to see, just like all the missing Shandy scenes.

-Provenza and Eduardo being similar is hilarious XD

-Sharon smiling at seeing the high photographer XD I really want her and Andy to get a spin-off where we see them retiring together and then travelling across the US, meeting all kinds of ppl and smoking pot from time to time XDDDDDDDDD I laugh just by the thought of Sharon high hahahahahaha

-THE BADGE OF JUSTICE JOKE IS NOT FUNNY ANYMORE. IT HASN’T BEEN FUNNY FOR 86 YEARS NOW. PASS IT ON (TO THE WRITERS)

-GAH Nolan is so hot.

-Hobbs’ expressions are everything.

-I love Morales, I wish he could be more with the team.

#featherstone talking about his pardon #to people who don’t give a shit

anonymous asked:

I like Cami as a character but can't stand her as a LI to Klaus. They created amazing scenes between the two of them but the progression was so unnatural. And in the end they invented this "darkness" for her which came from nowhere Klaus also got kinder way faster than is natural. In ep 4 he already told he he 'enjoys her company and they could be friends' wtf. Look @ how he treated Elena and she was way more important to him than Cami would ever be.

I liked her as a character in theory. And had they let the character become what she could’ve, I would’ve liked her a great deal more. 

Also I disagree. Klaus and Camille were horrific from the start, lmao. 1x04, I think it is, was despicable. When he basically decides for her that she’s not gonna look into what happened to her brother, and she’s like begging him, and he compels her anyway. I’m—nope. No, no, nooooo. The amount of issues prevalent in that exchange is horrifying given their target audience.

Seriously, who never imagined that Candice could have feelings for Grant and him too? Who ? I mean … you saw their chemistry, their kiss are so intense, full of emotions …
I stand for WestAllen. And also for Grandice. This is probably stupid, but I couldn’t believe that there’s nothing between them. When they were at home, in this ep, it was their best kiss, it was AMAZING, WONDERFUL AND POWERFUL!
Candice’s eyes shine when she looks at Grant. And Grant’s eyes too… so strong
AND YES, I know for GG’s girlfriend 😑
Last night was so great for WestAllen… and then Joe back home 😅
It was a great ep, and specials effects are always 👌👌

i know i said this already but this was SUCH a good vex ep i’m

  • CONSTANT affirmation of vm’s love for vex
    • the entire stealth twins conversation. vax just constantly telling vex how cool and amazing and strong she is and just gushing with love for his sister pls don’t even look at me rn i’m still crying abt the twins and how much they mean to each other sOBS
    • percy telling vex that she doesn’t need a title to define her or make her worthy
    • scanlan’s whole entire ok can we stop bein nice to this fuckboy i am Ready to Fight
    • grog using himself as a meat shield for vex bc like HELL he’s going to let the green giant’s emo cousin hurt vex while he’s right there like excuse
    • and my internet was really spotty during the last couple minutes but i think keyleth was saying something along the lines of how wrong shitdoor was and how so glad she is that vex didn’t accept his ‘deal’ bc she doesn’t need him and LORD KNOWS the feywild is shitty bout deals
    • VEX JUST STANDING THERE AND TAKING EVERYTHING THAT FUCKER HAD TO SAY ABOUT HER IN SILENCE AND EVEN THOUGH IT CLEARLY AFFECTED HER AND EVEN THOUGH SHE WITH HER BIG, GENEROUS HEART FELT BAD FOR HIM RECOGNIZED THAT HE WAS TRYING TO MANIPULATE HER AND SHOT THAT FUCKER RIGHT IN HIS CHEST BC MY GIRL VEX IS STRONG, AMAZING, AND A GODDESS WHO DOESN’T NEED SOME ASSHOLE TREE TO FEEL WORTHY GOD BLESS VEX’AHLIA I LOVE HER SO MUCH

With the amazing revelation about Dean and Taylor Swift in the latest episode, I feel as if another monumental thing has been overlooked.

Let’s go back to the start of the ep, where we can see a moderately attractive woman sitting at the bar, who is Dean’s age. He goes over to her when she mentions something about the guy that went missing, and introduces himself. It was at this point that I thought, “Here we go, another conquest.” And yes, then we have the cut to the two of them raucously doing shots, with both of them looking a little uninhibited. Something that we have realised, throughout this show of ours, leads to sex. 

But then you start to realise: Dean is not interested in Tina sexually. They’re bonding, but only over exchanged memories of crappy childhoods. After toasting to them, she stands up, saying that she has to leave before he “falls hopelessly in love with her” and what does Dean do? He fucking smirks, as if the idea is ridiculous. Maybe because he’s already hopelessly in love with someone else. And then, he doesn’t object to her leaving at all.

At first, I believed that his apparent lack of interest in her in that way was due to the fact that they would continue bonding through the episode and eventually it would culminate at the end. And continue bonding they did, but then the episode came and went without ANYTHING, not even a casual comment about her being ‘hot’ or anything.

Now, take this and compare it to Season 1, when any attractive woman who was Dean’s age would automatically fall into the category of 'sexual conquest’. It was a given; it was predictable. But after he met an angel in Season 4, all of that shit just seems to have disappeared over time, hasn’t it? 

Let’s all hope that this is sign of what is to come, and that Dean’s newfound confidence with embracing the things tough, macho guys aren’t meant to like, sticks around.

“You have a traitor there, Aslan,” said the Witch. Of course everyone present knew that she meant Edmund. But Edmund had got past thinking about himself after all he’d been through and after the talk he’d had that morning. He just went on looking at Aslan. It didn’t seem to matter what the Witch said.”

happy birthday, @h-alliwell ❤
