I’ve been very busy with work lately and sleeping five hours a night and things, so I’m probably overreaching and/or not making any sense, but this -
- I loved this, not only the scene, but how everything was framed, and yet there’s something bugging me - why is Dean keeping his right hand on the sigil and his left on the blade? Dean is right-handed - it would have made much more sense to cut his left hand and keep his dominant hand unhurt and free.
As I said, I’m basically delirious - but what we do know is that the left hand is the one which is a symbol for love, right? because that’s where we keep our rings (according to a medieval legend, there’s a vein that goes from the heart to our left hand, so that’s why our weddings bands go on our left hand and not our right)? Whereas the right hand - that’s rationality, doing things, fighting, writing, being all practical and sensible. And Dean’s right hand is on the Enochian sigil, because that’s the good choice - that’s what he should do to save everyone’s lives here - his, and also Sam’s, because his brother’s not far behind, because he never is, and as for Cas -
Dean’s feelings for Cas - a left-hand kind of thing. Back in Celebrating the Life of Asa Fox, the other Yockey episode, Dean picks up Asa’s angel blade with his right hand, because that was a weapon, and Dean favours his right hand when he fights, and that’s what makes sense. But this time around - I don’t think that blade is Cas’ (?), but it’s still an angel blade, which means it represents this brave, amazing, infuriating angel Dean loves unconditionally - hence the left hand, and Dean’s ‘illogical’, ‘wrong’ decision to trade his life for Cas’.
Request: okay I can’t find it but basically it asked for jefferson cheating on the reader and the reader going to the rest of the hamilsquad for comfort.
Pairings: past Jefferson x reader, platonic hamilsquad x reader
Warnings: cheating, mac n cheese, some swearing in multiple languages, the title is a reference to the princess bride
Word count: 1,851
A/N: I tried to make the reader gender neutral, so I hope that worked! Also fils de pute is french for son of a bitch and mierda is spanish for shit.
It was a warm Friday afternoon and you were exhausted but happy when you finished work early. You checked your watch as you headed towards the subway station, figuring you had enough time to grab something special for dinner.
Maybe some of the mac n cheese from the little restaurant on the corner, you decided. Thomas would be home and you wanted to surprise him.
You and Thomas had been together for two years, ever since you met at one of the Schuyler sisters’ galas. He had insisted on getting you a drink and inviting you to dance to whatever pop song had been blasting out through the speakers in sharp contrast to the couples waltzing on the dance floor.
“That’s not even slightly right, Alex,” you pointed out, “If you completely dismantle a system you have to have something in place to pick up the pieces-”
Alex looked like he was about to argue back when someone behind you caught his attention. “Thomas,” he glared. You glanced over your shoulder, catching a glimpse of a bright purple-y pink coat and a halo of dark hair.
“What are you being wrong about today, Hamilton?” Thomas asked smoothly, idly stirring some kind of cocktail. “Is it everything?”
Alex straightened. “I was being right,” he snapped, “about how much nicer this conversation was before you joined it.”
You laughed and waved as Alex turned to go. “See you later,” you called after him. He grumbled something incoherent in return and you rolled your eyes, heading towards the bar. Thomas followed you.
“What’s someone cute like you doing in a place like this?” Thomas asked, raising an eyebrow. You snorted, surprised at his attentions. People like him didn’t generally try terrible pick up lines on people like you.
“Getting a drink,” you said, accepting your glass from the bartender.
“Might I join you?” He extended his hand, “Thomas Jefferson.”
From Zane Lowe’s 2009 interview, which was devoted to Discovery (he aired the album in its entirety). (x)
R1: Just as an interesting question, and don’t feel embarrassed at giving an honest answer: When was the last time that either of you listened to Discovery in full?
Thomas: You know, as… when you make music… uhh… I think Discovery’s probably the album that we’ve listened to the most amount of times. I mean, of any artist… probably in the making, because from this idea… the sequential aspect of it, and the narrative aspect…
Guy-Man: I think I never listened to it even once—
Thomas: [talking over Guy so we can’t understand either of them]
(Thomas does finally admit, “It’s been a long time.” lol!)
Ok so!!!! After spending three years crying about how much I missed Phoenix I finally saw them again (for the 7th time!!!!) this weekend in Antwerp. I don’t think I’ve ever felt so happy in my life. Or I had just forgotten how happiness felt like???? either way seeing them was the best thing that happened to me this year so far…………….
They’re the best, I’m so proud that they are my favourite band!!! also the new songs sound amazing especially role model!!!!!!! and they are still the nicest guys on earth
(Their first album sold 2,000,000 copies worldwide. Their single ‘One More Time’ was a number-one hit in the US and in France (the last time they had one was three years ago) - truly, they’ve achieved some amazing feats. This month’s guests are the two from Daft Punk! … Ooh. Just writing about them makes us nervous. There’s something familiar about this… that feeling, that things have fitted together by chance (much like what they referred to as 'coincident’) makes us think that France and Japan are not so far apart after all. It’s an easily-coherent feeling to us, too. Perhaps we’ve had an image similar to them programmed in our subconscious all along, way back from when we were little? So much that we had the automatic urge to ask them - “Hey there, Machine Baron! How’s it going?”)
('Machine Baron’ is a reference to a character from an old-timey anime, Steam Detectives. Images originally posted by accio-sh, though I can no longer find their original blog for credit. Please inform me of any errors or suggestions for better wording!)
