At some point I stopped seeing the phrase "I need you" or any of it's variants as romantic :0
In the episode that MISHA was in that we would be watching, Rufus said “I need you” to Jiya. Pfft.
“… Especially me” - Bobby Singer to his wife Ellen in 6x17.
I mean it’s really not a stretch when this is the time Dean figures out his feelings and with rest of their story to see that this is clearly romantic.
And then Cas rejects him? Immediately and twice? 8x07 and 8x17? By “straightening things out” and leaving? He doesn’t mean to obviously, but that’s how it comes across.
And their reactions?
I LITERALLY DON’T UNDERSTAND HOW ANYONE CAN WATCH THIS AND NOT SEE THIS AS ROMANTIC.
WE HAVE DEAN BEING HEARTBROKEN, FEELING REJECTED, UPSET AND ANGRY. CAS NOT UNDERSTANDING DEAN’S MULTI-LAYERED REPRESSED WAY OF SAYING HE LOVES HIM AND THEREFORE NOT KNOWING WHAT HE’S DONE WRONG (because he’s not human and his people skills are rusty) BUT TRYING DESPERATELY TO FIX IT WITH THE THINGS HE KNOWS DEAN LOVES (because these are things Dean has said he loves out loud to Cas so he, being literal, latches onto these, showing us that he just doesn’t understand Dean’s hidden meaning).
AND HOW THIS FITS IN WITH THE REST OF THEIR ROMANTIC AF STORY.
HOW CAS THEN FALLS AND REALISES WHAT HE FEELS IN RETURN IS LOVE. THERE’S SOME FLIRTING AND UST DESPITE DEAN’S REJECTING HIM IN TURN FOR SAM, BUT ONCE THAT IS SORTED DEAN THEN IMMEDIATELY GETS THE MARK OF CAIN AND HIS FEELINGS GET REPRESSED FOR THE BEST PART OF 2 YEARS, MEANWHILE HIS SOFT MOMENTS ARE USUALLY AROUND CAS. HOW THEN DEAN SPENDS THE NEXT 2 YEARS SHOUTING “WHAT ABOUT CAS?!” AT ANYONE WHO WILL LISTEN WHILE CAS TRIES TO REDEEM HIMSELF FOR HIS PAST MISTAKES AND GET A WIN FOR DEAN… FOR HIMSELF.
HOW DEAN IS NOW COLLAPSED OVER HIS DEAD BODY IN SHOCK AND NOT ABLE TO PROCESS WHAT JUST HAPPENED WHILE SAM IS UPSET, PROCESSES BUT RUNS INSIDE TO SORT OUT THE ACTUAL PROBLEM ON THEIR HANDS.
“We just shouldn’t promote that kind of lifestyle. It’s unhealthy.”
Listen to me. I’m putting two girls side-by-side.
The girl on the left is hip-bone collar-bone thigh-gap
skinny because she’s whittled herself down to one meal a day and she fasts on
weekends so she can “make up” for the calories in alcohol, so she can get drunk
faster on less at parties and stay skinny, stay desirable while she lights up snapchat
and Instagram with glimpses of a life that society, in no uncertain terms,
The girl on the right is overweight because she eats too
“We shouldnt promote it because it’s unhealthy.” Bullshit. Bullshit. Absolute hypocritical bullshit. Because only
one of these girls is going to be labeled “unhealthy.” You know which. I know
which. And It’s got jackshit to do with health.
This argument shouldn’t be allowed to exist until the internet gives some semblance of a genuine shit about eating
disorders or binge drinking or malnourishment. Because those have been
glorified and polished gold by every facet of media and somehow—somehow—the self-righteous assholes of
the internet don’t feel compelled to voice their worthless two cents about the “health”
of the Instagram models they jerk it to.
If you’re so driven to advocate for women’s health, get the
fuck off the internet and go ask your little sister why she skipped dinner. And
leave fat girls the fuck alone.
So because elves are Magic they don’t get cold like Legolas was hopping on snow drifts without proper shoes even. but Elrond is half human so what if he gets… chilly. Like not hypothermia or anything, but chilly like you wish you had brought a jacket. And the other elves see Elrond shiver like one time and flip the fuck out and just imagine:
okay so hear me out... ronan making the most disgusting smoothie ever made, like, meatballs basil yogurt banana cocoa powder etc. and giving it to gansey without telling him what it is, but bc gansey is so focused on his work he drinks it no question and actually enjoys it, when he finishes it he asks ronan for the recipe so he can make it again. ronan throws up a little in his mouth.
IM SCREAMING. This content is exactly why I come on this hecking site.
But imagine this turns into a game with the Gangsey.
Ronan grabs Noah and returns to the kitchen and they get to work. They take crackers and put them on a plate and cover them in ketchup. They add cumin, chocolate syrup, and salsa. When Ronan goes back out to the main room, Gansey is sitting so close to his computer that his nose is almost touching the screen. Ronan doesn’t say anything and puts the crackers down. Gansey mumbles a simple “thank you” before eating it while Noah and Ronan watch him.
