What I yelled 11.23

Of course Dean goes for Cas.

The sun dies, plunging everything into DARKNESS

So I guess the Men of Letters only died out in the USA.

Holy shit. Dean is reassuring Cas that he matters and that he’s appreciated. This is beautiful.

When Cas consumes souls -very very bad, you child. 5 seasons later, great idea, very very good.

Deans Scottish accent made me all tingly

Billie!!

Come on guys, you don’t scare me anymore. Shows renewed, Dean’s gonna be fine.

Cas is the perfect concerned boyfriend.

Is Dean giving Amara a yellow crayon speech?

Well this is a nice ending with 10 minutes to go.

Wtf lady. Rude.

Oh. Oh my god.

Okay but one thing about the fandom reaction to 2x23 confuses me. I’ve seen so many posts about how the W/A kiss was ‘erased’ and how Iris ‘won’t remember it’ but…. as soon as the timeline is set to rights, she will? 

Like we all agree that this ‘timeline reset’ is very very far from permanent and that they’re not about to erase so much development (let alone the other shows in the universe) and at most they will use it as a sneaky way to bring back some dead characters. 

So I honestly can’t imagine that Iris won’t remember that kiss and that conversation down the line? I mean, we might not see that in the first episode or few (unless I’m correct about us seeing concurrent timelines next season but I don’t want to hope too much), but unless they intend to erase everyone’s memories about everything, there’s no reason they’d erase hers about that conversation so…

I dunno’, I’m just pretty confident that the kiss is gonna’ remain in the timeline and we’ll see where that leads next season. If Iris is too pissed from Barry’s reset to consider dating him right then or if Barry is still in too hollowed-out a place to pursue it, that’s one thing, but I still feel like this was very real, not-forgotten progress for both of them.

(I mean, don’t get me wrong, I get why it’s frustrating that right after the kiss, Barry went and fucked up the timeline, I do. It’s like taking us back to season 1 and the kiss by the waterside and it’s the type of thing that makes you want to flip tables when it’s your ship. I just don’t think it’s going to be ‘erased’ totally or permanently?)

I also think it’s worth noting that Barry’s decision not to be with her right then was no doubt directly tied to him knowing he was about to go and undo everything. He’d already made up his mind. Knowing that, he didn’t want to lie to her and plan to build something with her, and that was one of the ways I think he was trying to protect her and protect his love for her, while still doing what he felt he needed to do. Because I don’t think he’d have been able to say “yes let’s be together” and still go back in time. Choosing to be together is a forward-outlook and he was in a regressive mindset and he recognized that, on some level. But he still kissed her because I think he needed that love and memory to hold on to, no doubt hoping that in the reset timeline, they’d be together.

If all Season 11 offers us is the chance for David and Gillian to flirt their faces off for a couple of months...

I am 100% here for it.  They’re obviously having SO much fun together.  Irrespective of where you fall on the are they/aren’t they spectrum, you cannot deny that they really had the best summer EVERRRRRR.  No wonder they didn’t care about what the scripts were saying.  They’re too busy making googly eyes at each other.

PIKACHU VS. LIGHT YAGAMI !!

deafonyourleft asked:

Could you explain to me why poc/black people hate Hamilton? (Also did you mean the founding father himself BC j kinda understand that or the musical) thank you for your patience!

i meant the musical specifically, but that would easily extend to alexander hamilton himself. they’re kind of one in the same at this point.

as for why people hate hamilton, there’s a lot that goes into it. there are a lot reasons someone would hate it, and it’s weird that it’s on such a double edged sword because a lot of what makes people really fall in love with it are the same thing that puts it into the ground. people love the musical because of the way it’s been cast. the idea of historical reclamation for people of color in america. on it’s own in an abstract way, it’s good. personally i’m of the mind that the intentions were good, but that doesn’t make the fact that the execution failed any less of a sting. 

you take the things that were suppose to be good — the casting for instance, which on the surface, abstractly is a good thing, but when you put it up to the test don’t actually make sense and comes out to be something at it’s best, irresponsible and dirty and not well thought out, but at it’s worse, antiblack and glorifying slave owners.

i’m not going to bother trying to explain this any more on my own, because there are people who have done it far better than i could. here are some articles written by authors and historians of color (and if we’re going to be real on this, they’re the only ones whose opinions matter — white people giving their opinions for or against it truly don’t mean anything) on the issues that have come up with a show made the way it was made.

hopefully these answer your question

When a person of color says something is racist and you dismiss them (or their anger), it’s kind of like poking someone’s open wound and telling them, “No, no, this doesn’t hurt, you’re just being oversensitive. Don’t make drama.” Microaggressions might seem small if they’re not happening to you, but it may be the 1,000th cut the other person suffered only just that day. Why would they want to suffer it in a fandom?

Should Have Watched These Toshosen Extras Sooner

Because they’re just. So. Damn. Hilarious. Especially this part of making of where these two reenacted the kabedon scene XD, the camera shutter going off crazily in the background adds in the hilarity.
