Imagine Playing Crowley’s daughter

To say that Jared and Jensen could be annoying at times was an understatement. Jared and Jensen are like hell on wheels, constantly messing up takes, pranking people, and constantly teasing you about things you couldn’t change. When Misha joined the cast they would direct all joking and teasing to him, it didn’t happen as much when Mark joined the cast because they now teased him. You joined the cast during season ten you played Crowley’s daughter and ever since day one they would mess with you, its just how they show love.

You were born in england so you have a very thick british accent, almost more british then Mark’s, you were also a lot shorter then the boys, they were already freakishly tall standing at around six foot, then compare that to you around five feet they towered over you.

You sighed as you heard your alarm go off knowing you had to get up to go to set. When you got to set you headed for the makeup trailer, sitting down at your seat you waited for them to start on you. Anna one of the make up artists handed you a cup of tea, your favorite thing to have in the morning.

“ Wow I cant believe you managed to become more british (Y/N). ”

“ What do you mean Jared?” You sighed.

Jared pointed to your cup of tea.

“ Really just because Im drinking tea that makes me more british.”

“ Well the only person that drinks as much tea as you on set is Mark. And don’t you guys usually have tea breaks together. You’re like one of the most british people ever.”

You groaned knowing Jared he wouldn’t stop teasing you about being british till you die.

Even though you played Crowleys daughter you ended up doing more scenes with Jared and Jensen and Misha then Mark. Which sucked because Mark was no where near as bad as J2M. You take your mark for the scene.

“ And action.” The director yells.

In this scene Sam and Dean asked for your help with defeating lucifer because Crowley wouldn’t help.

“ Listen we need your help, your dad wont help us and without someone who has access to the books you have, we have no hope.” Jensen said in Deans rough voice.

“ Why should I help you, you’ve never done anything for me accept kidnap me one time, and try to get to my dad through me so why should I do bloody anything for you.” You said trying to sound as mean as you could.

“ We would give you tea.” Jared no longer acting as Sam laughed.

“God damn you Jared this scene was going so well and this is are last scene of the day why do you have to be so bloody annoying you prick.”

As you looked around at the director you noticed him and everyone laughing or trying to stop laughs.

“ Were sorry (Y/N) but you’re just so gosh darn cute when you say stuff like that. Its like a puppy trying to get mad.” Jensen said trying to get you to understand why they were laughing.

“ Mark has an accent just like mine why don’t you go tease him and call him cute.”

“Sorry (Y/N) Mark has no where near as cute of an accent as you do. Plus he doesn’t care when we tease him, you get so angry and its so adorable.”

“ Thanks Misha, I thought you guys were my friends.”

“ We are we just cant help it your so adorable.”

You sighed knowing that the teasing was no were near done, at least they weren’t doing it to be mean. Its just they couldn’t help it when you tried to sound angry you were to cute. Gosh darn your accent.

Imagine playing Crowley’s daughter and having a really British accent.

News Of The Day

So I told you the Patreon was off for March (and it is. It’s automatically set to go on hiatus, and Patreon assures me you will not be charged, and, if it is, I will call and have it all refunded.) This is because, in this year of me and Jill preparing to settle down and have a baby, I am going to Europe. I’ll be gone between March 6th and March 31st. 

Doc, that sounds like the worst possible way of settling down. Let me explain. No, there is too much, let me sum up. 

When I was a girl, going to Europe was my dream, and it was a dream that was like going to the moon–I come from a relatively poor background on both sides, particularly when I was young. No one in my family had been to the east fucking coast when I was a girl, I saw the ocean for the first time when I was 18 and only because I made it happen. But Europe, you see, was never going to happen, no matter how many avenues I tried, I was still a girl from the middle of nowhere who, regrettably had never been born into wealth. 

I was talking to my boss about how it was something I’d always wanted to do before I had a baby, and I was sad that it was pretty clear that wasn’t going to work out. Jill had wanted to send me, but we just couldn’t make it work. It was a thing she really longed to do for me before we had a baby, but the truck broke, and we need a new water heater–the banal things of life. It was disappointing, but it was a dream I was going to let die.

 My boss is a complex man, a rich white dude who nonetheless has a sense of compassion and generosity that occasionally strikes like lightning. So he gave me the money for plane tickets, train tickets, and a month off (unpaid). If you’re going to go once in your life, he said, try to make it count. SO I AM. I was originally going to go by myself, as I don’t have much trouble doing that, and actually enjoy a certain amount of solitude. I live in my head a lot. But ever since my Mom divorced my Dad she’s had a pile of money and weeks of vacation sitting there doing nothing, so I invited her to come along, and I thought she was going to cry with excitement. 

The Patreon has been an amazing help, and is going to cover my bills while I’m gone. But since it’ll be off that month, and for some of you who have always wanted to toss a couple bucks my way, but don’t want the month to month thing, I decided to set something up specifically for this trip. I want to add that I don’t expect anything–y’all have done enough for me, frankly. And I’ll still be able to borrow money from Mom to make it work, so you’re not ruining my life. Basically, I’m just asking you to help me out with a lifelong dream I’m getting out of the way.

 But there’s rewards! SHINY, FANTASTIC REWARDS. I’m not just asking for money, I want to do stuff for it. And when I say any character, I mean it. (Though, if I’m totally unfamiliar with even the property, you’re taking your life into your own hands) Want a postcard from Bill Cipher? PRETTY SURE I COULD KILL IT, ACTUALLY. A letter from Bastion? The most soulful beep and boops you’ll ever read. Usagi goes to the Paris Catacombs? DONE, WITH LOVE AND TENDERNESS.

 So here’s the breakdown:

 Any level: a photo post thanking you personally with a picture of me doing the thing!

 Tier One: a postcard of the country, from either me or your favorite character! Mailed from Europe.

 Tier Two: a two page ficlet of your fav character experiencing whatever you got me, or a two page letter from me about it. Mailed from Europe. Example of how I write about food here.

 Tier Three: I buy you a small souvenir from said locale, and wrap it up with a letter from your favorite character or me. Mailed upon my return, I can’t figure out the post offices THAT well.

 Tier Four: don’t do this, but if you want to, convo me first and we’ll work something out.

How to do this, if you want to:

Message me with what you want to sponsor and your email address. I’ll send you a request via paypal! And let me know which character(s) you’d like your letter/postcard from! 

Again, I have no expectation of anyone doing this, so no worries. I thank you anyhow! You’re all amazing. This is a dream I never thought I would fulfill, and all of you have had no small part in making it a reality. I wish I could tell you how much it means to me, and I look forward to all the new shades of adventure we’ll have together.

The Great British Political Bake Off - Muriel Comedy

This is the best and most accurate thing I’ve ever seen!

HEADCANON: Rowan Whitethorn speaks with a Scottish accent.

HEAR ME OUT I HAVE EVIDENCE AND IM JUST REALLY PASSIONATE ABOUT THIS

  • One name directory website talks about the origin of the name: “Rowan is the name of a tree with red berries that’s commonly found in Scotland (and said to ward off witches).(Also yeah, the witch repellant thing is 100% appropriate and super sneaky on Sarah’s part!) 
  • A lot of Erilea is heavily influenced by the United Kingdom. Sarah J. Maas has stated that Terrasen (most likely terrain-wise) was inspired by Scotland. The style in which most of the characters speak is very British, particularly in Adarlan.
  • In Wendlyn, Aelin is called “lass.” I mean come on.
  • Rowan’s accent is initially described as a “purr,” which insinuates a rolling sound—the very sort of sound that separates a British accent from a Scottish one.
  •  Angry Scottish accents are kind of the best thing ever. 
  •  And so is Rowan Whitethorn, tol salty warrior prince. 
  • So yeah he’s Scottish when he’s talking in my head. [triumphant bagpipes]
undernourishment replied to your post “The lady that runs the local bakery and I have been having a “debate”…”

…not to be snide, but its not that hard to find a good (English) scone recipe - but then I suppose there wouldn’t be a funny story if you’d just handed her the answer! (I like the 3c SR flour : 1c cream : 1c lemonade recipe myself - non-traditional inredients, but so easy, and makes perfect scones.)

@underanothername I can’t believe the scone post is still getting notes lol, but allow me to just say after living in America for 3 years—what Americans think of as a good “British” scone recipe (it varies depending on where you are in the UK) and what is actually a British scone is wildly different. (It’s also a palate thing. Most Americans in my experience like soft gooey sweet things. Most British baked goods you can throw against a wall and the only damage you’re going to do is to the wall, but by god you can bake ‘em using rationed food and also fight off invading forces if you have to.) For one thing, if I ever put lemonade near my recipe, my mother would ascend through the earth’s crust, tsk between her teeth and say “oh. you’re doing it like that are you?”

I actually had so many people ask me how to make traditional (Scottish) scones so often I put the recipe in my profile page lmao.

As for the baker in question, she did eventually make the Perfect™ traditional scone based on taste testing, from one baker to another. But because she’s primarily baking for Americans it’s not a thing she can sell without people complaining it’s not sweet/soft/dense-cake like enough, so she’s back to making dense muffins and calling them scones. Though thankfully not with rosewater and lavender :p

EMP in HLV - Appledore

This is the second part of me analysing HLV for possibilities of EMP. As I stated here and in the first part, I believe that Sherlock, after collapsing at Baker Street following the Watson Domestic, never gained consciousness again. Not only was all of TAB set in his MP, it all started back in HLV.

Now I will look at the Appledore scenes and search for clues for EMP there.

Taranis takes to the skies!

The UK’s most advanced remotely controlled aircraft ever has finally been properly revealed after its first test flights last year. Now working with the French to create a 50/50 UCAV, the future of aviation is beginning to take shape between an Anglo-Franco deal.

Stealthy, incredibly precise and with some of the alleged best evasion technology and ability to fly in any air traffic conditions (a real problem to most drones) it should be a rather dramatic few years of this thing being developed.

Quick PSA

It totally sucks that that pissmidget of a Cameron is back in Downing Street, but look at Scotland:

  • the SNP have taken 56 of 59 seats
  • let that sink in. 56 of 59. that has never been done before
  • they took the biggest labour and liberal strongholds with huge majorities
  • instead of career politicians most of the SNP members have had actual jobs, things like doctors and lawyers and quantity surveyors
  • both Jim Murphey and Danny Alexander lost their seats to huge majorities
  • at least (possible more than) HALF OF THE SNP MEMBERS ELECTED WHERE WOMEN
  • ONE OF THESE IS THE YOUNGEST MP EVER TO HAVE A SEAT IN WESTMINSER SHE’S 20

hi nikki!! what are some of your fave phanfics/writers? ^.^

yOU’RE MAKING ME PULL OUT THE BIG GUNS, HUH

(a disclaimer: i am a very low functioning human being and i will forget people; i read lots and lots of fanfiction, and i’m inherently uncomfortable mentioning authors i don’t know or ones i don’t have, at the very least, a very common connection with (i.e. we’re mutuals, we’ve talked, yada yada) because i don’t want to associate myself with people who aren’t comfortable associating with me; i don’t like the idea of anyone feeling pressured to follow or notice me because i put them on a list, and i don’t want to make anyone unhappy with being put on a list by a stranger. it might be a bit weird, and i’m definitely projecting the whole disconnect with fandom culture, but i just don’t want to make anyone uncomfortable, so if you’re not on this list, i’m so so so sorry; feel free to say something in the ‘reply’ function, so people can check you out, as well! :D i also may forget people. i am so sorry. pls forgive me i have a very cute dog u can pap)


@transdimensional-void​, aka sara, is genuinely one of those people that i’m hesitant to call a fanfic writer, because it feels so much more than that. they wrote that super long japan au called so many stars, but make lots and lots of other amazing and frankly breath taking worlds and creations; their characterization of dan and phil is more than i could ever ask for, their grasp on language and novella makes me foam at the mouth. (not to mention that sara is one of the sweetest people i’ve met, dealt and still dealing with me being a massive fangirl as well as anyone possibly could, and deserve a lot more recognition than they get, especially for fics other than so many stars.)

@thatsmistertoyou, aka michelle, wrote that one fic ‘if lost, return to phil,’ and continues bashing my head in with a pencil and a tupperware container of spaghetti. if lost return to phil was definitely the first fic i read from ~the phandom~ and i was instantly beyond impressed, and unsure what to do with the rest of my life. she handles her characters well, the dialogue is cutting and clever, and every word has a place, a function, and while i’m a serial skimmer when it comes to chunkier parts of fics, i never found myself scanning hers. i met her in real life before we were internet friends, and i promptly made a fool out of myself by yelling at her for constantly ruining my life via AO3. the bastard.

@dantiloquent, aka peej, is one of those writers that you squint aggressively whenever they post and you consider if tonight is the right night to reconsider human existence and sob into a carton of saltines. metaphoric and beautiful in ways john green soils himself about, peej’s ‘details of an astroid’ left me with a jaw firmly blowtorched to the ground, and tear-eyed at a ridiculous hour of the morning. i wrote them a 8 hour review where i considered it better than neil gaiman, then deleted the post out of shame. idk how we become friends, and idk if peejy even knows i wrote that post. glad it’s deleted. sucker

@phanwich, aka fizza, is definitely one of the lighter authors on this list? me, mr. i’ll take graveyard by neil gaiman to the grave, you can imagine just how pretentious and ridiculous i like my fanfic; fizza, however, tackles the other side of good writing, which is the fics that you read and it’s like watching an indie film. it’s concise and pretty, well characterized and well plotted, everything is right in place and perfectly thrilling at the same time, and yet when you finish it doesn’t leave you with the hanging feeling of having missed something – it’s clean and good writing, the type of thing i can read over and over and just snuggle up with for a good ‘before bed’ type of deal. v good. all my recs.

@hearteyeshowell, aka hunter, is the flip side of fizza. hunter’s fics are litted metaphors and heavy hearts, and holding your tears back because you’re scared you can’t see the screen. it’s the bone chilling type of writing where you don’t want to sleep because you’re stuck thinking about what you read, thinking of a continuation, thinking of where to go from here, and how to move on. the type of one-liners that stick with you for the rest of your fic reading life, hunter takes language and twists it just right, and makes it his.

@galaxyphan, aka whitney, is a mix of hunter and fizza. feel good to a point that i feel like i can survive reading it before i fall asleep, but just enough rub off from hunter that i severely regret reading it before i fall asleep because my head is racing, and my hands are sweating, and i’m writing angry anons at whitney where i know she’s just gonna reply with emojis and being too nice, so it isn’t even worth it, so you just continue on and read her next fic. and her next fic, and you end up with 16 cats in bed with you, and the subtle sound of a tractor in your backyard. yee-haw, she says. let me sleep, i say back

@sassquishes, aka dom, has a very internet writing style, and i’m not even sure how to explain it. it’s good – amazing, phenomenal, the type of stuff you twist your face into weird positions and try to capture everything, try to read deeper, but it’s only text, and you look really stupid doing. it has depth, and weight, and steps into the whole idea of dom as a person, and given he had a year on phil in regard to existing, and is whipping everyone into shape one ‘all adults settle down at 30′ trope at a time, dom is pretty 👌🏼

@phangirlingforphan, aka lily, is the person who created my internal dilemma about reading fanfiction before i go to bed. i can’t point out where i found out about her fics, and i’m almost certain that they were a sort of weird blotch of freckles that you just realized you had, but was there all along. they’re good, frankly, and i wish i could wax poetry about the way she captures stories and the way she paces fics, and the weirdly individual satisfaction you get from binging half of her fic page in one day and then realizing it’s four in the morning and you have work at six, but it’s just an experience you have to have for yourself. just, not before bed, especially if you have a life

@horrorphil, aka atara, only has one fic posted on their ao3, but it’s painfully amazing, and i suggest it to anyone who likes to read stuff and things. their way of writing is just as through and passionate as they are, and if you ever felt like someone was reaching into your belly and twisting around all your organs, it’s like that; they understand things about dnp’s characters that i genuinely have never seen in anyone else’s fics, and it’s that jarring reality where you miss the line between reality because it’s so in character. micro-mannerisms and hearing their voices in your head, it’s only slightly creepy

and, finally, the homeslices of homeslices, @wiinterberries, aka, annie. i met annie through a writing thingy where we bonded way too quick and i fell in love with her writing even quicker. taking pride in being the most british to ever british, given she works as an editor, you won’t find any mistakes after she betas her own damn work, and i don’t think there was any thing to fix to begin with. it’s intelligent in the way that witty puns are, but light enough that i could tread water with it tied to my back. good, and clean, and easy to read in the way that a firm grasp of language can only give. i give annie 3 pups out of 3

AND THIS IS FREAKISHLY LONG. i’m sure i forgot someone, but i’ve been working on this for ages, so i should probably Get My Move on; i’ll add more to this tomorrow, possibly, because i’m sure i’ll think of someone at 3 in the morning and scramble back

curse me, and my sudden but inevitable memory issues. hope these recs helped! :D
