the fact that this is probably the one thing we'll remember most from this show

i’d rather waltz than just walk through the forest

genre: fluff
status: getting together
word count: about 2k
warnings: swearing
summary: person A owns a flower shop and person B comes storming in one day, slams 20 bucks on the counter and says “how do I passive-aggressively say ‘fuck you’ in flower?” - requested by @goshcas // (part II)

i’d rather waltz than just walk through the forest, the trees keep the tempo and they sway in time, a quartet of crickets chime in for the chorus, if i were to pluck on your heartstrings would you strum on mine? - plant life, owl city

The mini jungle that Phil had grown to live in had practically become a second home; the green leaves and blooming flowers were so soft and welcoming that when he entered each morning, he breathed a sigh of contentment. Working in the flower shop had always been a part time job, but then the owner had gotten seriously ill at the end of Phil’s final year of university, and Phil had agreed to take main control over the summer whilst the woman was in hospital. Thankfully, the doctors predicted she would be coming back in October, so Phil only had to stay on until then, but it wasn’t like he had a plan for afterwards anyway. It was an excuse to stay a little longer in Manchester, and business was good, so he knew he’d be earning money whilst he did it. Another bonus was that he got to stay in the apartment upstairs whilst she was away, having moved all her stuff to her sister’s apartment, as it was much closer to the hospital.

It had been 3 months since Phil had taken it on, and, whilst the first few weeks had been a disaster, he had soon gotten the hang of it. Watering the plants in the morning was his favourite thing to do, but generally the customers were steady - less on weekdays, but still a few an hour - so Phil did odd jobs in between helping people, even learning the language of flowers to add an extra something to the potential customer experience.

SPN 12x02: We’ll always end up here.

Mamma mia aired three days ago and I’ve seen many discussions about everything that happened in the episode. In my case, I’ve had a very busy week, so that’s why it took me some time to write something myself. However, here I am to contribute to the discussions already started.

TONI BEVELL

First of all, the episode was written by the dreadful duo: Brad Buckner & Eugenie Ross-Leming. Anyone who has been following me for some time should know that they’re my least favorite writers because (I’ll quote myself from a post I wrote about them): “Their episodes are almost always problematic due to non-con, racism, sexism, misogyny, and some “no homo” among other things. Even our boys are sometimes OOC.”

When I saw the scene between Sam and Toni in bed, I wasn’t even surprised. It wouldn’t be the first time these writers include problematic sex scenes. Do you remember Cas and April in 9x03? Yeah? Well, they did that. Lack of consent, dubious consent, rape… they don’t even think about such things when they write their episodes. Even if Sam and Toni didn’t actually have sex; even if it was only a hallucination, everything happened inside Sam’s head. Toni was taking advantage of Sam, and I seriously think that she could have created a hallucination about any other thing, but apparently, she believes that sex works on Sam (as she later mentioned Ruby to him).  

There was only one good thing about the scene between Sam and Toni (and I feel bad for saying it). Many people thought that there was even a small chance that Toni could hook up with Dean. I mentioned in another post that such thing was NOT going to happen. Toni was obviously a love interest for Sam (which didn’t really make me happy because I prefer Eileen). However, I wasn’t expecting something to happen so soon. The scene between Sam and Toni (even if it was a hallucination) cancels out any possibility of Dean/Toni happening, thank Chuck! Due to what happened between Sam and Toni, I’m not sure if they will give Toni some kind of redemption arc. I still believe they want to do that. Let’s remember that she left her child back in London. We probably need to know her backstory to be able to understand her actions.  

I received this from an anon, and I will share it because I had thought exactly the same:

I think Toni’s motives are personal and not just of the BMoL’s. Mick said that her mission was to identify American hunters and gain their trust”. He said nothing about the Winchesters, like she had to search for THEM first. Plus, she was very emotional in the car. It felt clear (to me) that she has some grudge against the Winchester boys, like she wants revenge or something – and Mick knows that too. Especially against Dean. I don’t know… her behavior seems different towards Dean, like you can see the pure hatred in her eyes. She acts much colder and sadistic towards him, than Sam (okay, it may sound weird, but I got that feeling). She’s kind of curious towards Sam and I don’t think she wanted to torture him that much at first. It was after she learned that Dean was alive and later killed her partner. And when she captured Dean, she became much colder and sadistic. And she asked about Dean when she first met Sam in the bunker.

I think the Nonny has a very good point here. Ladi Toni has a son, but we have gotten the idea that the child’s father is not around, right? So, is he dead? Does Toni think the Winchesters have anything to do with his death? Or maybe it’s not a late husband but a late father, mother or both? Look at this from her house in London:
