taste of hope

anonymous asked:

DID YOU WATCH THE SEASON RECAP THINGY ON TWITTER BC OHHH MY GOD,, THEY'RE FUCKING WITH US SO HARD

@mittensmorgul is a gem and found this for me because I haven’t seen it on my dash

… I would probably be able to react to this better if I could understand lyrics easily but that’s a real issue for me with audio comprehension so I’m just going to enjoy this and someone else can squint at the song choice :P

seems so far to just be random 1sec shots from the season, and I mean random as hell 

Family! Pie! Photos! yeah that all seems par the course

then the great hug marathon, and Cas and Dean hugging and Sam and Eileen right next to each other, followed immediately by that one time Crowley got a hug… Oh dear. Does that mean anything? My heart is going faster just to see a DeanCas hug immediately followed by Saileen :P I suppose it’s just a The Hugs Of Season 12 part, and I regret Dean did not randomly hug Rowena in 12x11 because she’s left out :<

Speight continues to be worth every penny for sticking poor old Wally at the back of the Dramatic Slow Mo Walk so no one would see him when they re-use this footage over and over

Distressed Winchester Close Ups and I love that we got these 2 next to each other because I don’t think anyone wrote meta comparing during the season even though we were all Emotionally Compromised by both:

because I have seriously just paused to think harder about this instead of just letting the video play >.> Blah blah loss of self blah blah Cas death foreshadowing blah blah Dean losing Cas blah I’ma hit play, I was just starting to enjoy this

WERE THOSE THE VAMPIRES FROM 1x20? WHAT THE FUCK WERE THEY DOING IN HERE? WERE THEY IN A RECAP OR FLASHBACK CONNECTED TO THE COLT OR SOMETHING 

*more 12x09 and 12x15 running in the woods recapping instead of explaining that*

oops I forgot Lucifer was on this show

More burned wings from 12x10 in short succession because ouch

Dean n Ketch drinking followed immediately by Mary and Ketch looking heterosexually at each other putting 12x14 and 12x12 back to back. Bold move. 

Like, random selection of Things again after showing the Colt and it shooting. Just like, random shots they like I guess. Rowena getting splattered by that guy Crowley killed for her reminds me a LOT of the Pastry Mishap in 8x08 and I never said at the time so as not to ruin the moment but of all the blood/cake splatters in the show those 2 are most alike

Eeeeey layering Dean and Ketch shooting off their grenade launchers and showing the end result as the one where Cas watches unbothered by it. Now THAT is a meta point I muttered to myself somewhere in my 12x22 madness (I was pretty feverish that week)… All the Ketch-related character mirroring and Dean using it to free himself but also that Cas is ~immune~ so to speak of all this grenade launcher posturing. And all the subtextual links to Dean breaking down those walls leading him closer to Cas, who is beyond all that posturing…

And then blurry sad Winchesters and Mary being sad and - Gavin? - and back to TFW and Mary being sad… 

*random clips mushed together again that I don’t think there’s enough conspiracy to link all these moments like Crowley coming back and being stabbed and Kelly’s suicide attempt and Ketch driving by on his bike* A lot of shit happened in season 12. This montage has a lot of MotW stuff.

I LOVED them putting Dean going “pew” with the Colt to Mrs Umbridge being shot 

This is the slow music, people slowly looking up and then having glowing eyes section, and then a bunch of witchcraft and magic, everyone running, MORE hugs they missed earlier… More sad Winchesters over “nothing else matters” before cutting to Cas and Kelly - uh, I think he does :P

Loved them using Dean being punted through the door by Billie in 12x06 side by side with Sam and Dean being punted back out the portal in 12x23 because that links COOOOSMIC CONSEQUENCES that much nicer

REALLY getting into the fighting and explosions and then they included the bit where Dean slammed Cas against a wall and my brain shorted out and dropped back in at Dean riding Larry.

I’m glad Larry was in this

WHY WAS THE ONLY THING ANYONE SAID SO FAR DEAN’S “NO” FOR CAS BEING STABBED? THAT’S JUST CRUEL

AND THEN A RESPECTFUL FADE FROM BLACK TO SLOW MO BYE BYE MARY LIKE NOTHING ELSE GOT A FADE TO BLACK YET

Oh Mary got one for being stuck in the AU (not Lucifer, no one cares about you, Lucifer)

And Kelly got a really short one

Oh NO and then the “nothing else matters” over Cas’s face close up and Dean all sad and asdfgjlkfhs they already SHOWED the last shot of the season earlier! THEY CHANGED IT SO THE LAST SHOT HERE WAS THE DESTIEL END OF SEASON SHOT.

And Dean all helpless and hey watch season 13 on Thursday October the ducking 12th. 

And the 13 Death tarot card because this show is Edgy but not edgy enough to air on Friday the 13th and it hates it

You can taste the bitterness.

I hope Death comes back

I hope Death comes back and it turns out they’re Billie and have been all along

I hope Death comes back and is like “I AM GONE FOR LIKE THREE WEEKS WHAT THE FUCK WINCHESTERS”

boo.

This is Damien of Dream Daddy, I’m going to be dating him when the game comes out. He’s one of my favorites so far okay. I really look forward to dating this Vampire Goth Dad with my Dadsona. (ALL OF THE DADS ARE HOT)
Reasons why Damien is already top tier:
1
. Nothing pales in comparison to his black fingernails. (They’re Anish Kapoor Black like his soul. Did you know the center of a shadow is the brightest point, like he is on my life.)
2. Black earrings, several fucking cheerings from this flustered gay right here.
3. His shirt frills that pay the bills.
4. His fancy cape, my mouth is agape.
5. He’s wearing purple and gold, I’m sold.
6. His crimson & purple eyeshadow, he’s won.
7. Another perk, those fangs he’s hiding behind his smirk.
8. I can hear his campy anime chuckles and it’s making me buckle.
Okay enough rhyming through my gay musings.
Protect him, his gender expression, make-up, and piercings.
LET ME KNOW WHOSE VOICING THIS VAMPIRE GOTH DAD
LET HIM DO MY MAKE-UP IN GAME OH MY GOD

There’s a boy standing in the sky, right in the middle of the stars.
He’s all power,
dripping down his chin,
crackling at his skin
 
And he’s got a way of walking, like he’s been alive for all the time in the world.
 
You can feel the way danger clings to him.
It’s in his eyes,
the roll of his shoulders,
In his lips.
He looks at the sky like he could swallow it up.


He says he’s a monster
But
I wonder
If he is a monster
Why does he taste like hope?
—  and feel like light despite all his dark // L.H.Z

BOY KING // a playlist made for maven calore, the shadow of the flame.

maven calore is not his own self. he told me as much. he is a construct, a creation of his mother’s additions and subtractions. a mechanical, a machine, souless and lost. what a horror, to know that someone like this holds our fates in the palm of his quivering hand.

I still hope it’s you and me in the end. Sometimes i kiss your name into the void until it fades from my memory, sometimes i kiss your lips into the wind until i forget how they taste.
I still hope it’s you and me in the end but i have been thinking about beginnings insanely. How the heart feels the love before the eyes can see it. How the mind thinks the love before the hands touch it. I have been thinking about our beginning.
I still hope it’s you and me in the end.

I made Sour Cherry Scones for our golden boy’s birthday!!! They smelled absolutely amazing when baking, and when I ate one, it tasted like a literal piece of heaven fell from the sky in the form of sweet and sour cherries and buttery doughy goodness. No wonder Simon loves them so much.

Happy 20th Birthday Simon Snow. Give Baz a kiss for me. :D

“Soulmates aren’t the ones who make you happiest, no.
They’re instead the ones who make you feel the most.
Burning edges and scars and stars.
Old pangs, captivation and beauty.
Strain and shadows and worry and yearning.
Sweetness and madness and dreamlike surrender.
They hurl you into the abyss. They taste like hope.”

Anyone who knows me from @artmemesarchive knows that I love them, so what better way to kick off this blog than with an art challenge! Also, despite this blog’s name, it’s not necessarily about first ones specifically!  Any old oc will do.  The difference can be from months to years, but the longer ago it was created the better the transformation!

For this challenge, paste an old drawing of the character in the box (can be traditional, scanned, photographed, digital, mspaint, whatever!) on the Original half, then fill out the form. Afterwards, update the character! Make them new! Draw a picture with your improved skills! Update their bio and information! Reflect on your improvement and changed tastes.

 I hope to see people participate!! If you do it, tag me @myfirstoc or put #myfirstoc in the tags of the post so I can see it and reblog it!
