the usual suspects*

Dear Cat,


Your ability to fluster me, even on custom linen stationary, remains intact, Miss Grant.  Congratulations.  I needed a few days to slow my alien heart and gather my thoughts before penning a coherent response.

The anticipation of seeing you again gives me incentive to gather my courage and reveal said mystery.  As per usual, you may already suspect my truth.

As for your hair, the offer stands, even if I no longer can.  I find my knees a bit weak.  It really was an offer for hair tips.  A job offer as your hair-braider sounds infinitely more rewarding at the moment than a feature on former spoiled child stars, most of whom have spent our interviews hitting on me.  I suspect Snapper gave me the assignment knowing that would happen, so he remains high in my esteem.  My apologies for the sarcasm dripping from this page.  I hope it didn’t make a mess.

You goad me for my jealousy, Cat, but why, if it offends you so, did you spend so much time and energy dragging it to the surface?  Nevermind.  Water under many bridges.  Susan and I enjoy bonding over pulling practical jokes on my sister and hiding Hank’s Chocos.

Best of luck with your events.  I’m sure you’ll pull them all of with your normal grace, style and dramatic flair, torturous shoes and all.  When you need that high-profile alien, you know where to find me.  I might know a few.

Don’t be long.  I seem to recall the promise of a visit buried somewhere in your letter, but we may never know for sure as I have already burned it.

Always,

Request Reminder!!!!

Ok, Seth fic almost complete and should be up in the morning!!

So this is your “REMINDER” that requests will open WEDNESDAY MORNING. Probably around 10 eastern. I feel like I’m doing something so important getting all technical lol. But I want to be fair. I’ll leave them open for an hour.

Anyway, please when you request give me some sort of premise you want to go along with it. Not just “Finn Smut” or “Sami Fluff”. You don’t have to give me all the details, just the basic idea. I want to have some creative freedom but I also want to write what you want to read. Also make sure to submit requests in ASK instead of messages. 😍

I am open to writing about any wrestler you want but if it’s someone I’m not familiar with, I will have to research them first. So don’t think you have to stick to the usual suspects (although you know Baron is always welcome here 😏).

Also side note: If you have sent in a request and I haven’t done it, that doesn’t mean that I won’t. I’ve got screenshots of all requests saved and when inspiration strikes, I will do them.

Night guys! Look for Seth in the morning! ☺️

Concept- Ford and Dipper convince Stan and Rick to play D, D & D with them. What happens?

Coincidentally there’s a collab art piece (with the usual stan//chez suspects, that I’m helping out with) currently in the making, that I think you’ll enjoy. Look forward to that showing up on your dash in the next couple days.

Why doesn’t Dean go for lady cops?

So in this post I wrote about how Dean doesn’t have any female friends except Donna. Everyone else fits into a specific family category (mother, sister, daughter), the lover category (ranging from sexual relationships to Dean just viewing them as a casual sexual conquest), or the enemy category. And then there’s Donna, who could be considered family in a general sense, but doesn’t fit into any of the prescribed roles, and who could be a lover except that Dean has showed absolutely no sexual interest in her. And she certainly isn’t an enemy.

And then I got to thinking. There are actually two more women that come to mind over the seasons that had roles too small to be family, but which were not treated sexually either. They could also be considered friends, in a very acquaintancey way. And they were both also female cops. I’m talking about the cop in The Benders (Kathleen) and the cop in The Usual Suspects (Diana). Both of them let Sam and Dean go even though they were wanted by the law (both of them also killed someone right before doing that, but I’m not sure that’s relevant here).

Dean doesn’t make any sexual remarks towards them and isn’t even remotely suggestive in their direction (which, incidentally, can’t be said about male cops, just saying).

This is particularly remarkable because it was in the early seasons, where Dean treated nearly every woman as a sexual object, even enemies (Bela), and women who clearly (according to the social norms we all know and hate) were ‘claimed’ by Sam (Jess). In fact, Dean steamrolled over most taboos about flirting. He flirted with enemies, people in relationships, people who were clearly uninterested, strangers, older women, younger women, yes even men. But he drew the line at lady cops. I just wanna know why.

Was it because he thought they wouldn’t appreciate it? Because he thought he couldn’t get away with it? Because he’s afraid of women with power? Because it wouldn’t benefit him?

I don’t think it necessarily has anything to do with attraction (that would imply that he only flirts with people he is attracted to, which I doubt is accurate if only because I think it more likely that he uses flirting as a tactic, to get people to react either positively or negatively). Although we do know that Dean doesn’t think much of cops, which might mean he doesn’t find them attractive as a rule. That leads me to consider that he flirts with male cops as an act of aggression and a way to claim power over them, and doesn’t flirt with female cops because… why? He feels like the power dynamic is already balanced in his favor? He doesn’t think it will work? He feels some kind of outsider kinship with them?

But then again, I don’t really want to say it’s respect either; because, again, that implies he doesn’t respect the people he does flirt with.

I’m sure there are other classes of people that Dean never flirts with, but this is the most solid example I can think of. And it holds true in more recent seasons as well. Dean didn’t flirt with Jenna, or the female sheriff in The Chitters. And we know Dean is uncomfortable discussing sex at all in front of Jody (see Celebrating the Life of Asa Fox).

This trend keeping up isn’t surprising since Dean flirts a lot less with women these days in general, but it still stands. I don’t think we have ever seen Dean flirt or be sexually suggestive with a lady cop.

Why do you think that is?
