Neil Gaiman/Terry Pratchett’s “Good Omens” and the evidence that Destiel has always been real

I don’t know how many of you are fans of Neil Gaiman, but I’m sure you know how much the general idea for “Supernatural” and its plotlines was inspired by Neil Gaiman’s works. Like, his Lucifer is literally based on David Bowie (so yeah, Lucifer is a glam rockstar deep down); Tessa the Reaper looks a lot like Death from Sandman; Cain is a prominent character there; Abaddon’s look is suspiciously similar to WAR from “Good Omens”, SPN’s Death looks a bit like Famine in the same book - practically the whole Apocalypse in season 4-5 is based on the plot of that book. Sandman starts with a bunch of people summoning Death. And so on, and so on.

So, beware, because I will spoiler the shit out of “Good Omens”, but I would like to show you how I believe they always were very deliberate with Destiel from very early in the show. 

The two main characters in “Good Omens” are demon named Crowley (yes, our Crowley inherited his name) and an angel Aziraphale. They met in the Garden of Eden, where Aziraphale was practically Gadreel, guarding the gate, and Crowley was the snake. Unexpectedly, they became frenemies, and now, six millenia later, they are best friends officially, but most of the time they seem more like a very unusual married couple.

Crowley likes well-taylored leather jackets, wearing shades inside, and to drive his super cool, old black car. Most days he pretends that he is more of a badass than he actually is - demons don’t really respect you if you don’t show them your tough, smooth-talking facade - but mostly he would just like to travel, walk through a park, feed ducks, eat good food, drink wine, and talk for hours, with the angel Aziraphale - instead of doing evil hell business, ever. 

The cool image is everything in hell, but once his angel is in trouble, our demon has no problem running into flaming buildings, screaming his name like a crazy person, and falling apart when his angel seems to demise.

Crowley also listens only to “Best of Queen” while driving, because somehow all his tapes turn into the classic rock album when left in his car for longer than a fortnight (you think Dean has a similar problem, and all of his Taylor Swift tapes turn into AC/DC?) He has a soft spot for pot-plants, a nice apartment downtown, and he generally just wants a quiet life with his angel, far from the heaven or hell business.

DOESN’T HE SOUND LIKE SOMEONE WE KNOW?

Aziraphale is a badass angel when he needs to be, handling flaming swords and such, but on everyday basis he is an old-book lover who owns a little second-hand book shop in London. This beautiful description of him says it all really:

“Many people, meeting Aziraphale for the first time, formed three impressions: that he was English, that he was intelligent, and that he was gayer than a tree full of monkeys on nitrous oxide. Two of these were wrong; Heaven is not in England, whatever certain poets may have thought, and angels are sexless unless they really want to make an effort. But he was intelligent. And it was an angelic intelligence which, while not being particularly higher than human intelligence, is much broader and has the advantage of having thousands of years of practice.”

Yeah, except for the English part, this could be Cas. 

Aziraphale is the one who seems more gay in this odd couple, but Crowley definitely seems to be more openly emotional about his angel. When Armaggedon started to unfold, and everything seemed to go to hell (not literally, but almost), it is Crowley who calls Aziraphale a lot, and gets hurt when the angel doesn’t answer, or seems too busy to talk; it is Crowley who eventually loses his angel and tries to find him for several chapters, showing great emotional distress. Again, SOMEONE WE KNOW???

AND THROUGHOUT THIS WHOLE BOOK EVERYTHING IN THEIR EMOTIONAL STORYLINE STAYS IN THE SUBTEXT. Neil Gaiman said that it’s up to his readers to decide if the relationship is romantic or not - he only said it probably wasn’t sexual since angels and demons (ex-angels) are sexless. But you know, “unless they really want to make an effort”, so who knows? Anyway, we got a green light from the authors to ship them as husbands, so we do.

This has been, for the longest time, my biggest Destiel anchor in the sea of gaslighting from the cast and crew. Because Eric Kripke is A FAN OF THIS BOOK TO THE POINT THAT HE STOLE SEVERAL STORYLINES FROM IT. And the rest of the writers are too - the Megatron/Metatron joke in season 7 is also from it! And the whole Nephilim storyline.

You are not telling me that when you base your TV show on a book with a subtextual romance between an asexual angel and a guy in a cool, old, black car who pretends to be cooler than he is, and somehow your TV show seems to have a subtextual romance between an asexual angel and a guy in a cool, old, black car who pretends to be cooler than he is, IT’S A FREAKIN’ ACCIDENT! Because you know, accidents don’t happen accidentally.

I am POSITIVE they decided that Destiel was real the moment they realised Misha is not going anywhere, but they put it in the subtext for safety, and because that’s what Kripke saw in his favourite book. And no one will ever tell me it hasn’t been there since as early as the end of season 4. So, yeah.

Tomorrow: “Good Omens” and the Nephillim. Because the new writing crew are also fans of the book.

Hi! I hope you're having a lovely day, and I want to share with you a small detail that I noticed in Viggo's flashback in RTTE S5. When we see Viggo fall into the volcano, he was holding the dragon eye in his hand. But in the last episode of the previous season, he fell into the volcano AFTER the dragon eye is gone. Do you think this could have been a mistake or did he really caught it mid-air? Personally, I don't think the latter is possible since he fell waaay after the dragon eye was lost.

Hey there! I hope you’re having a wonderful, lovely day, too. And whoa! Good attention to detail!

You are absolutely right - during “Shell Shocked Part 2,” Hiccup throws the Dragon Eye into the volcano, Viggo rushes to the edge of the volcano, and watches it plunge downward. 

Only after the ground of the volcano splits beneath Viggo’s feet does he fall into the volcano, too, a good several seconds after the Dragon Eye has already fallen downward.

And it’s not like the Dragon Eye is a feather, where air resistance would cause it to fall so much more slowly that Viggo could catch it mid-air. As you yourself say, it’s extraordinarily unlikely Viggo could catch it because he falls so much later than the Dragon Eye. Presumably the Dragon Eye would have already landed by this point.

Yet the flashback of “The Wings of War Part 1″ indeed shows Viggo holding the Dragon Eye as he falls to the bottom of the volcano.

So what happened?

I’m an analysis blog that primarily prefers describing events only as though they’re the real deal in canon - that because they’re what we see, they’re what actually occurs, no questions asked. I don’t usually like to look from a meta perspective outside of the events - so I usually don’t talk about “mistakes.” Rather, I like to talk about the best way we as audiences can interpret the events we see on screen to be logical and consistent in-universe.

So sure, we could say the animators made a mistake or something. Sure, that’s likely what happened from the production angle of things. I recognize internally where mistakes probably happened from an outward production angle of things. But that’s boring as fuck to say and doesn’t help us at all when we want to consider understanding the integrity inside the story. What is on screen is what it is, and we as fans have the power of interpretation on our side.

And I do think that there is a good plausible explanation for the “inconsistency” between the two volcano scenes. They don’t have to be inconsistent. The first scene in “Shell Shocked Part 2″ is the actual event - Hiccup watching Viggo fall into a volcano after the Dragon Eye. That’s the event, concrete, unyielding. The second volcano scene is Viggo’s memory of the event.

And the truth is, the animators themselves clearly present this as a memory from Viggo’s mind. When Krogan asks Viggo if he’s sure the Dragon Eye is down there, the camera pans in on Viggo’s face. Then it transitions to the flashback. The implication is that this is Viggo’s mental answer to Krogan’s question, that Viggo is remembering and reliving this moment and recalling exactly why the Dragon Eye is still down there.

But the thing with memories is… they’re notoriously unreliable. Terrifyingly unreliable. How people remember a car crash they just saw can be manipulated simply by the phraseology of someone asking questions about the event - for instance, if I asked about “smashing head on” versus “bumping into,” you’re going to remember a crash of differing intensities. We like to say that our eyewitness testimony is critical, but the truth is, our memories are fragile, easily manipulated, and often untrustworthy once we triangulate with other sources outside personal recall.

So even though this is a huge and traumatic event for Viggo, he’s not necessarily going to recall it correctly. He could incorrectly remember holding the Dragon Eye as he falls. What we see in the flashback is what Viggo recalls, not necessarily what happens. And so we see that he “remembers it wrong” for a few details.

There is a third possibility we could propose outside of Viggo catching the Dragon Eye mid-air, or Viggo recalling the scene incorrectly. It could also be that the Dragon Eye landed on a ledge at first. When Viggo started falling, he could have “caught up” with the Dragon Eye’s descent - whether that means that the Dragon Eye started falling again when Viggo fell (due to the ground shifting)… or Viggo hitting the same ledge the Dragon Eye is on, grabbing it, and then continuing to fall… or any number of plausible variations that would cause Viggo and the Dragon Eye to come in contact with one another.

Personally, what I see between these two scenes is one concrete event happening, one incorrect memory recall. Something like this is going to happen so fast that your memory won’t process everything perfectly. How long would it have taken Viggo to plunge to the volcano? Not long at all. It would be a flurry of vision, an intensity of heat… but he would clearly remember the Dragon Eye lying just a few feet away from him on a stone. His mind could have filled in the rest and processed that he “held it” until he reached the bottom of the cauldron.

(I reserve the right to update this list as things come back to me after the initial shock of experiencing something so awesome.)

anonymous asked:

Did you think the Hiccstrid was handled well? A lot of fans thought the engagement was rushed.. What did you think? Were they anything like the couple that we see in the second movie?

I liked the Hiccstrid from this season. They’re still not at the level of depth and confidence they are by HTTYD 2; in the movie they are much more comfortable confiding in one another, for instance, whereas in RTTE S5 they still have some elements of relational trust and security to work out. Astrid even avoids talking to Hiccup because she doesn’t feel secure talking to him about the betrothal gift. Technically you can be close confiding with someone in most topics and still be uncomfortable sharing some areas (and that is what we see in S4-5 Hiccstrid), but there’s much more sense of unrestrained comfort in the second movie. So I’d say they’re still growing in the show.

Now as far as the engagement is concerned: on one side it did feel sudden, especially since it didn’t feel we saw the “get engaged” moment - only the “start dating” moment - on screen. For something so monumental in their relationships and lives, I always believed this would be a moment explicitly shown on screen, and shown on screen in a film more audience members would see than a show. What we get in RTTE instead is suddenly seeming jumping into being engaged. To see Astrid and Hiccup hook up as a dating couple at the end of S4… to hearing them talk of betrothal gifts at the start of S5… does for us feel like a JUMP.

But the thing is not every culture approaches courtship and marriage the same way, so for me I am able to take the “sudden” engagement in stride. Long dating periods are something of an anomaly anyway in human history. Honestly, starting courtship could be Berk’s equivalent of betrothal. Hiccup and Astrid deciding to be together at S4′s end therefore wouldn’t be, “Let’s start going out.” It’d be, “We’re making a romantic commitment.”

To me that seems to be a realistic and plausible way to understand RTTE Hiccstrid’s development. Hiccup and Astrid have flirted with one another for years. Sometimes it’s been the construction of a platonic team moreso than zeroing in on the romance, but they certainly have had moments of showing their interest - Astrid’s little punches, or her quick grab-and-kiss move, or that specific way teenaged Hiccup looks at her. But for someone like Heather to ask if Hiccstrid is “together” in S1 is different - they’re not engaged! In a society where the two possible configurations are “friends” or “betrothed” with no “trial dating period” in between, Astrid is going to rightfully say she and Hiccup aren’t on the highway to marriage… and she’s going to be startled at the concept of someone suggesting she could be there… with of course Astrid internally realizing she could be close to this point. Heather advising Astrid about admitting her romantic feelings would also indicate something more serious than some modern North American hookup.

And that moment from “Shell Shocked Part 2″ where Fishlegs, Snotlout, Ruffnut, and Tuffnut find out Hiccstrid is an official couple? Their ecstatic celebration and group hug makes a lot of sense! If you think about it in terms of Hiccstrid making a commitment at this point, no wonder everyone’s so jubilant. They could be basically learning Hiccstrid is engaged!

So even though personally I said I always didn’t want a RTTE engagement (I’d have rather waited for HTTYD 3), I don’t feel I have anything to complain about with what I got! 

Honestly, I legitimately enjoyed not only the moments where they happily cherished one another’s company in S5, but I also enjoyed seeing Astrid struggle finding Hiccup’s gift. It’s an enormous step to enter an engagement, let alone picking an engagement gift for the rich chief’s son. This was a good moment of dimensionalizing Astrid, demonstrating very real concerns and barriers of communication that happen in early romantic relationships, and providing a beautiful moment of reconciliation where Hiccup says all he needs is her. That was a wonderful scene!

How do you know when you’ve found that person , the one who you don’t mind cracking open your skin in front of so that they can see the whole package of your emotions and not just the safe outer shell?
