this speech applies to almost everything

Love Bites (part 1)

Words: 2.5k

Summary: Spn Au. Focuses mostly on a flashback of the last time you saw your best friend, Cas, before he went off to college and you left town to travel. You’re both back in your home town for your 10 year high school reunion.

Warnings: Minor angst, a little fluff, and some fluffy and awkward smut (female receiving oral sex, fingering, losing of virginity by both male and female, brief painful sex.)

A/N: This series is for the @casbabydontgoineedyou 1k follower celebration (my phrase doesn’t come until a bit later.) Constructive feedback is always appreciated. If you want to be on my master tag list, just send me an ask or DM.

—————

You had always been considered a bit of a rebel. You had never really concerned yourself with the opinions of others or what path you were supposed to take.

After high school, everyone else was running off to college to plan their boring careers; while you thought traveling the world, working odd jobs in odd towns seemed more your style.

This week was your 10 year high school reunion. You had thought about skipping it until you saw your former best friend, Cas, was on the list of attendees. He had been one of the good little boys to choose the traditional path and you thought about the day you told him you were skipping the graduation ceremony.

My favorite scenes:

1. I Don’t Want to Go Back: I am Bawson trash through and through, but I’m here for Ginny first and foremost and this scene tore me to shreds. Kylie kilT it and, damn, if Ginny’s pain, stress, and frustration wasn’t palpable as hell then I don’t know what is. You have this overwhelmed 23 year old who is carrying the weight of the world on her shoulders and all she wants is just one moment of normalcy opposed to her constantly playing a role. One of the best things to come out of this was the fact that we see how much others genuinely care about Ginny.  

2. I Don’t Need a Man to Save Me/I Make the Speeches: I don’t think this speech necessarily applied to Mike, but damn, I was in awe of Ginny as she let him have it. lol. Someone needed to hear what’s been weighing on her chest for a while and who better than Mike? She feels comfortable and emotionally safe around him pertaining the pro stuff. But, I love this assertiveness and Ginny dictating what happens. She may be a duckling at times, but she can call her own shots.

3. Bawson Bar scene and almost kiss: Everything leading up to the almost kiss was magic. Mike asking why Ginny lied, Ginny not being to answer for it, the reasons they’ll miss each other, gah…it’s only been 10 eps–how am I THIS invested??? The almost kiss was everything. Mike letting Ginny lead and Ginny not letting anything talk her out of the kiss UNTIL ‘The Call’ happens. The hot man breath and beard touch.*sighs* This is a waking nightmare because I need resolution. 

4. The Day After Almost Kiss/Evelyn is Us scene: Every time I watch this scene I HOLLER. Evie: Tell me how last night went? (referring to Noah) Ginny: It got weird (referring to Mike). This entire scene is golden, from the carpet matching the face to nuance–and Ginny SEVERELY undersold the moment. Then, Amelia walked into. This series wants to kill us, but FOX might. *crosses fingers for the best*

5. Mike gushing about Ginny on National TV: It’s one thing to say someone is a good player, but not only was Mike defending her on national TV, he was gushing as he did it. I know Janet and Will has been there since the beginning, sacrificed a lot, and love her to pieces, but Mike is her number one fan. How the roles have changed. 

6. First Mound Speech/Do this for you...: I think many of us wrote Mike off and saw him as an ass because, yah, he was in the beginning, but how the tides changed in ONE episode. Who knows what others told Ginny about before she made it to the show, but it appears that Mike was the first one to tell her, “Do this for you or not at all–do this for your team.” She’s a ballplayer first and foremost and he reminded her of why she played to begin with and, ultimately, what the bottom line was. 

7. Mike tearing into Omar while outing him own feelings: Mike takes love seriously. You don’t fall in love with someone based on looks–you have to get to know them. Also Mike: "Well, I believe in the soul… the cock…the pussy… the small of a woman’s back… the hangin’ curveball… high fiber… good scotch… that the novels of Susan Sontag are self-indulgent overrated crap… I believe Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone. I believe there ought to be a Constitutional amendment outlawing Astroturf and the designated hitter. I believe in the sweet spot, soft core pornography, opening your presents Christmas morning rather than Christmas Eve, and I believe in long, slow, deep, soft, wet kisses that last three days.“-Bull Durham (1988)

8. Ginny’s Kimmel interview: This is where we first (???) get of glimpse of Ginny’s media savvy. She doesn’t want to speak on the issue, but Amelia forced her hand, so she uses her platform to call out to acknowledge her change in status and uses this moment to address rape/sexual assault case. This scene really highlighted Ginny’s complexities also while giving us a insight on her feminists beliefs all while wanting to be one of the guys. 

9. Mike’s late night call to Ginny: Mike’s tired of not having someone to talk to at night, so he calls Ginny….even though it’s just to give her shit. Their comfort level and ease with one another just warms me soul. :)

10. Ginny taunting Mike for not hitting bombs: Look, y’all this was some straight up foreplay. I can only imagine what the sex will be like. lol. She goes from playing taunting to encouraging, and Ginny is Mike’s biggest fan. 

11. Every interaction in “Don’t Say It”: I was both dead and got my life from their awkward interactions and bull put scene. I LIVED. “I’m good, you good?” “I’m good” “Good.”///“Oh, so that’s what we’re going with???” “Yep, because that’s what happened.”–What in the TV Gods Heavens. This is too much. I’m flatlining just thinking about these lovesick fools.

12. “Put Your Helmet On”: When I say that Ginny is Mike’s number one fan…ole girl got hubby in the game. Use her womanly wiles, riled up the crowd, and made it impossible to keep Mike benched for his “last” game. She not only wanted Mike to bat as his teammate, but as his friend and his biggest fan. And that wink was everything as well as Mike’s frown.
