From @narqueen amazing analysis: “One of the major themes of the series is the conflict of fragmented identity; this is embodied the best between inuyasha versus naraku - inuyasha, who struggles internally with the desire to be a half demon and his humanity & love for kagome, compared to naraku, who struggles physically (by constantly shape-shifting his body) to shed himself of his humanity & his love for kikyou. this literary archetype is called the shadow - a formidable opponent who mirrors the darker psyche of the hero; a character to both compare & contrast with the hero.
in fact, inukag and narkik are one another’s “shadows” - the relationships themselves are nearly-perfect contrasting mirrors of one another.”
Apparently, October 24th was my one year tumblrversary. My post count is sitting at 12,222. So, according to the math, I make roughly 30 posts per day on average. Which means I owe all of you an apology. Why are you guys following my spammy spammy blog?
What if Jongin just smiling today at the airport because he's happy? Finally he can date Soojung openly. He's just a normal teenager who falls in love and being in a relationship, he would be happy all the way 😊
Funny that the only pictures he appeared smiling were the ones that media outlets took of him. In the ones took by fansites, he looked sleepy, or serious most of the time.
Sabriel oneshot of how Gabriel tried to woo Sam, Sam snapped and hurt the poor archangel’s feelings, and Castiel is thrown in the middle of everything next to a very protective and slighty pissed off Dean.
The hunter looked to the raven haired angel and felt a smile tug on the corners of mouth.
“Yeah, whats up Cas?”
“I wanted to inform you that Gabriel has just taken Sam on a ‘date’.”
The smile fell from Dean’s face in a instant, and a mask of shock slipped on instead, something dark brewing in the depths of his green eyes.
“Dean…?” Cas asked slowly, his eyebrows furrowing and his big blue eyes worried. “Have I upset you?” The trenchcoated angel shifted from one foot to the other and looked to the floor, worried Dean was upset with him.
The hunter let out a frustrated sigh and stood up, running a hand through his blond hair and scowling. “It’s not you Cas.” Dean snapped his attention to the angel. ” told Sammy to stay away from that feathery douche.”
Cas scowled. “Gabriel is a respected archangel, even though he may be…childish at times. If your brother agreed then maybe he wanted this.”
“But what if he didn’t?! And your brother is no way respected with me. He killed me a thousand times!” Dean growls, turning and taking Cas by the shoulders and staring into his eyes. “Tell me what happened.”
Cas took a deep breath. “Well…”
~Four hours earlier~
“Come on Sammy,” Gabriel leaned in close to Sam’s face, waggling his eyebrows and staring into the studying hunter’s features, dangling a red rose in Sam’s vision.
“Sammy boy, you’ve already stolen my heart- there’s a fine for stealing, ya catch my drift?”
“Why don’t you just leave me alone Gabriel.”
Gabriel let his sarcastic gaze waver for a second, showing a pain in those whiskey eyes before the walls were thrown back up, and the smirk returned to the archangel’s face. “I know you want to, Sam. I’ve seen the way you look at me.” Gabe sang, and played with the rose. “Just one weensy little date, and I’ll be gone. Poof, like that.”He made hand motions to go along with the words, and no matter how much he tried, Gabriel couldn’t keep the desperation out of his voice.
“Why do you care?” Sam hissed, closing his book and promptly whirled on Gabe, his hazel eyes blazing. “You don’t need to tease me, so leave back to whatever hell hole you dug yourself and go back to hiding from your pathetic little family feuds, because I so don’t need to deal with your crap. You left for four years, and we only just heard from you. Dean was right.”
Gabriel’s proud stance crumbled, and the whiskey eyes bore into Sam’s soul, pained. “What do you mean, Dean was right?”
“You left, Gabriel. And nobody cared that you were gone.”
Sam looked up to the archangel before trying to give him his best bitchface, and was caught off guard by the look of hurt and heartbreak that masked the features Sam used to adore. (And still does)
The pained look never left Gabriel’s face. Even when the rose was clutched tightly in his hand, and blood dripped from his hand, the wound promptly closing up and vanishing. And even when the flapping of feathers filled the room and the trickster was gone.
“Dammit!” Sam pounded his fist into the table, and stood up quickly. The man he secretly had a crush on just freaking asked him out and he declined. More then once. And then yelled at him. Sam shook his head and growled. He had let his anger take over and it messed everything up.
The younger Winchester defiantly was angry at the archangel, saving him and Dean, but getting himself killed at the same time. It hurt Sam inside to think that Gabriel was dead, reoccurring nightmares stained his sleep, and heartbreak gnawed at him each passing day.
To say that Sam was happy to see Gabriel was in fact alive was a understatement. Sam was overjoyed at the survival of the archangel, but also came a flood of anger at him for not telling Sam sooner.
For not caring enough to show up sooner and leave Sam’s prayers unanswered.
“Gabriel…? Gabriel come back!” Sam shouted at the sky, his heart twisting sadly as he called for the cocky trickster to make his return.
“No kiddo, you made yourself very clear.” Gabriel’s voice echoed in the room, wounded.
“Gabe, please! I-I didn’t mean it”
“I really wanna go on that date.”
Sam let out a whine of frustration and sat on the edge of his bed, burying his face in his hands and clenching his teeth, feeling his chest twist in grief. He screwed up big time.
Then a idea sprung to him. A rather nice idea.
“Cas, get your feathery ass down here. I need help!” Sam scowled, a renewed fire in his eyes.
The raven haired angel apparated in front of him, blue eyes curious and worried. Probably expecting Dean to be in trouble, but finding a distraught moose instead.
“Sam.” Castiel’s eyebrows rose. “What do you need?”
“Can you bring Gabriel here?” Sam pleaded, hazel eyes wide as he gripped Cas’ shoulders and shook him slightly. “Please?”
Cas nodded. “I’ll do my best.”
Sam looked to the bloody rose on the floor and picked it up gingerly, wiping off the blood collected on the stem with th pad of his thumb and inhaled the sent of trickster on the sweet-smelling rose.
“Castiel what am i doing here?”
The flapping of wings was barely audible around the words Gabriel spat.
“Wha-” Before the words could find it’s way from Gabriel’s mouth, he had an armful of a sobbing Sam.
“Gabriel!” the front of Gabriel’s jacket was balled up in the man’s fists, and hot tears were staining the front of the dark maroon shirt Sam loved so much. “Don’t ever leave again.”
“What’s going on?” Gabriel asked, his voice hard and cautious. Scared to be deceived again.
“Gabriel I didn’t mean it. I promise! I just was mad you left me and…” Sam broke off and sobbed into his shirt, while Gabe awkwardly patted his back.
“I wanna go on that date.”
“More than anything.”
The hands on his back tightened and rubbed small circles into the hunter. “I promise I will never leave you again.”
Sam looked up and smiled wide, his eyes red and puffy from sobbing into Gabriel’s chest, but filled with happiness. He held up the blood red rose to Gabriel’s face and tucked it behind the archangel’s ear, brushing back his honey blond hair and staring back into his whiskey eyes that he adored.
“I shall go now… if you don’t mind.”
The two jerked apart, and stared at Castiel, who stood with his hands behind his back, kicking the floor awkwardly.
“Bye Cassie.” Gabe made shooing motions with his hand. “I have a moose to woo.”
Turning back to Sam with his iconic smirk on his face, Gabe dipped the larger man and quirked an eyebrow.
“What about that date?”
“So, Sam is on a date with Gabriel.”
“As I explained just now, yes.”
“Take me to him.”
Castiel grabbed Dean’s arm and instantly the two of them were at a small restaurant by the beach, the moon overhead and the stars twinkling, no other light source other then them, scattered tiki torches and the light from the restaurant.
“Pretty nice I guess…” Dean grumbled and stomped forward, squinting at the large window. “It’s them!” Dean pointed, wrapping an arm around Castiel’s shoulders and pointing towards the middle window.
Sam was facing them, his eyes crinkling in laughter as Gabriel waved his hands in gestures probably as he told some story. Sam looked happier then he had in a long time, everything seemed so perfect and… light and carefree.
“You’ve seen Sam. See? He’s happy. Let’s go back home, ok?” Cas smiled up at Dean.
“What do you mean?”
Dean grinned and pulled Cas even closer, resting his head on top of Castiel’s. “We haven’t had a day off in a long time. Why don’t we go somewhere?”
“Are you asking me on a date, Dean?” Cas smirked and Dean made a face at him, sticking his tongue out. “Well, are you?”
“Yes, Cas, that’s exactly what I’m doing.”
“Good.” And with that, the angel took himself and Dean somewhere nice, leaving Sam and Gabriel back to the date that almost didn’t happen-
When brothers Liam and Killian Jones were shipwrecked, a young woman named Emma Swan found them and helped them. While waiting for his brother to get better, Killian and Emma bonded, sharing their life stories with each other.
Sadly, their time together had to end, because the brothers had to get back to their kingdom, but Killian promised Emma he’d return for her.
She was used to being alone, and people disappointing her, so she didn’t want to get her hopes up, but nevertheless, when she got his letter telling her of his return, she went to the docks hoping he’d be different and actually come back for her - he did.
They were married by the captain of the Jewel of the Realm, Liam Jones, and they lived happily ever after, aboard the ship, since neither wanted to spend any more time apart than they had to.
Needless to say, their lives were filled with many adventures, that would be shared with generations to come.
