A little something for @winchesterprincessbride celebrating reaching 2000 followers! So for her reverse gif challenge I got given a gif and had to do a story based on said gif! Sorry it took me so long but I had to go back and watch the episode a few times!
Word count: 551
Characters: Dean, Sam, female Reader (have tried to leave it as neutral as possible so it can be read however you wish IE friend, girlfriend, sister)
Obviously a big chunk of this comes from the episode and so credit for all of that goes to the writers etc of Supernatural
Gif and story below!
Walking into the warehouse you quickly stick your badge back into your pocket. You might have gotten past the rather bored looking security guard but you still didn’t want to risk anyone taking a closer look at these badges, unsure just how good of a copy Sam has managed to do. After all, being homeland security was a new one for you guys.
Leaving Dean and Sam to check out the other side of the warehouse you try to find anything out of the ordinary. You soon get distracted however by the Winchesters. “What is that?” You hear Sam ask. Glancing over to where they’re stood you see Dean with earbuds in. You smile slightly as you realise what he’s doing. “It’s an EMF meter. Reads electromagnetic frequencies.” comes Dean’s reply. “Yeah, I know what an EMF meter is, but why does that one look like a busted-up walkman?” “Cause that’s what I made it out of. It’s homemade.” Dean can barely keep the grin off his face.
You chuckle quietly as you walk over to join the guys. You remember the weekend Dean spent building that thing. It had taken 5 walkmans before he’d gotten one to work and he’d practically turnt the air blue with all the swearing he’d done. But you had to hand it to him it definitely came in handy.
“Yeah, I can see that.” The sarcasm drips of Sam’s voice as he looks towards you. You’re looking at Dean, and as the smIle on his face drops, you roll your eyes and turn towards Sam. “Well when we need a replacement we’ll let you be in charge of design. So long as it does the job it’s good for me. Now, stop posturing and start looking. I’ll keep my eye out for any unwanted visitors.” As you turn to walk towards the door, you catch Dean mouthing the words ‘thank you’ out of the corner of your eye. ‘Any time’ you mouth back with a quick wink.
Minutes pass, and as the guys linger over a door handle, you spot two men in much smarter suits then your own headed towards the warehouse’s office. “Guys? We’re about to have company, so whatever you’re doing, do it quicker.” You rush over to them, arriving just in time to see Sam put a bag of yellow powder in his pocket. “All done.” Sam says as he puts his knife back in his other pocket. “Emergency exit over there” You knew Dean would have a way out planned for you all.
The three of you casually walk across the tarmac outside of the hanger, not that anyone else is around. Next thing you know, an alarm starts blaring and Sam and Dean take off at a run towards the gate. You’re about 10 paces behind, keeping up rather well despite the stupid heels you’re having to wear. As you reach the fence you can see that Dean’s chucked his suit jacket over the wire at the top of the fence and is at the top, leaning down to grab your hand and pull you up. Climbing down, Sam rushes to the impala to start it up while Dean grabs his jacket. “Well, these monkey suits do come in handy.” “Guess they do. Hey, Dean? Thank you.” “Any time.”
where is my very soft time traveling fic featuring zimbits where they meet their grown-up selves with 2.5 kids via stanley cup magic just so I can read a scene like this:
Shitty (coming downstairs to kitchen for breakfast): oh hey Bob. I didn’t know you were visiting us. Nice flow, when’d you get it? Who’s the cute blonde dad behind you? Also why are there children in the haus– Older Jack (juggling his toddler, who is playing with his hair): …I’m Jack. Shitty: haha okay–(focuses on Jack’s face, spits out coffee)–holy–
This creative little restaurant on the outskirts of London has been on my bucket list for *10 years* and I finally went! The Fat Duck by Heston Blumenthal … They research their diners in advance and personalise the meal. Inside this box was a gold coin that you exchange for candy at dessert. 🍬 Props to @thehestonblumenthalteam for what was probably the most creative and magical meal experience of my entire life. ✨

Mod @artnerd1123 and myself have added a new character to our ask blog. His name is SwordFish, and for more information go check out the blog @ask-the-pyrrhia-travelers. Feel free to ask him any question that your heart may desire and thanks out to everyone!
the official map of thedas is tragically underpopulated, so here’s an alternative. all headcanon & completely made up, but useful for fic/worldbuilding or just interesting for the curious. feel free to nab bits & pieces for your own stuff, just gimme a credit if you do!
all of these place names exist in the real-world, & i’ve taken them from ireland, scotland, scandinavia, switzerland, belgium, & northern england. i’ve tried to match up my invented names to the canon ones (for example, ‘kirkwall’ is a real place in scotland, so the names i put around thedas’ kirkwall are also scottish).
Because zimbits needs more time traveling referring to this post. Situations that would probably happen:
-After the situation has calmed down from “hoLY SHIT TWO JACKS AND BITTYS” to “holy two jacks and bittys strange but i can work with this (?)” the interrogation begins -Older Bitty with younger Bitty cooking and Older Bitty’s hands move pretty much like lightning because he’s had so much practice, Bitty staring in awe and asks about everything, from his vlog-turned-cooking show to how his parents are ten years later. He’s afraid to ask about Jack, because he’s scared Jack will judge him because who knows if this is even time travel? Who knew it was even possible? And since it seems to be what if it’s actually just an alternate universe and Bitty would never have this anyways? It makes him sad and his head spin so he just tries to stray away from the topic and instead asks about their daughter, who would stick her finger into the pie dough when Older Bitty isn’t watching and just poke at it until her Daddy tells her to stop. -Younger Jack seeing his older self move around so confidently and happier - in fact, when Tango mistook the older man for Bob it wasn’t really a stretch. Young Jack is stressed, tensed, angry, and still feels this urge to prove himself. He’s basically Zuko but instead of seeking honor it’s more like hockey honor?? I dunno Jack is v complex. Older Jack smiles so much, he has laugh lines what a wild concept, and stares at his daughter and son and Bitty like they’re the entire world. -When Jack asks about the Stanley Cup ring, his response was, “Yeah, we won a few times. It was great.” When he gets further questioned he just goes: “I hear Bitty calling my name from the kitchen.” “No he didn’t–” But Older Jack just leaves lol. -Older Jack once tried to help in the kitchen but he’s still pretty terrible compared to Bitty the World Chef especially not since The Incident. (The Haus discover that The Incident did not involve exploding ovens, but involved a very burnt roast chicken. Jack has long been demoted to making sure his daughter doesn’t poke the dough when Bitty isn’t looking.) -Someone plays “Love On Top” (haha i had to….) and Bitty just goes “Oh no” and everyone is like oh wtf it’s an alternate universe it’s not time travel what the hell kind of world is it that Bitty doesn’t like Beyonce– but then they see Jack and daughter lipsyncing to it and both doing this terrible (Jack)/super adorable (daughter) dance and they realize Bitty is laughing so hard he’s looks like he’s convulsing. Haus discovers that Jack did this once when Bitty was feeling down and it’s kind of a thing afterwards because Jack loves it when Bitty smiles also he appreciates that the song describes them very well. -Baby son only wants Papa Jack to feed him. Jack does this task like it’s a mission his face is 110% serious but then the baby’s face is also 110% serious as he chews his baby goop and father and son stare at each other like they’re ready to battle. Bitty thinks it’s the best thing but it does get annoying when Jack’s not at home since it takes that much longer to feed their kid. -Their daughter tries to climb up Shitty’s leg and Shitty is immediately taken with the little munchkin and refuses to take off the butterfly clips she’s put in his hair. -Older Jack is openly affectionate. Not like full on teenager PDA but let’s just say the Zimmermann charm has finally kicked in. He carries things for Bitty, kisses Bitty before he leaves, puts arm around Bitty’s waist when they are walking, also French pet names he is all about those pet names. Younger Bitty is embarrassed af and sneaks glances at younger Jack to find him looking equally mortified and Bitty’s heart breaks but younger Jack’s brain is just going “Oh god I’ve always wanted to do this this is a nightmare the entire Haus is basically watching my fantasy sequence play out just bury me dead” -Older Bitty about Younger Jack: “Oh honey, look at you, you’re just a baby!” (Older Jack is NHL he’s probably swoler than Superman dear lord). Younger Jack embarrassed around Older Bitty because Older Bitty is fire like Younger Bitty is cute but DAMN DAD BITTY IS A DREAM. On the other hand, every time Younger Bitty talks to Older Jack (this doesn’t happen very often because it’s still very weird and Jack is still intimidating, but in a Dad Bob sort of way instead of Ice Prince of Hockey scary way) Older Jack is so attentive and hangs on to Bitty’s every word. Younger Bitty develops a dad crush on Older Jack. -Older Jack wants to teach history after he retires. He plans to go back to school for that Ph. D. and hopefully teach in Samwell. -Ransom and Holster’s Conspiracy Theories™: “So if it’s time traveling, then to send them back it’s obvious to need to get…” Holster pauses to wait for Ransom to finish his sentence, but Ransom doesn’t and he just goes like ??? Holster: “A car, man. Like Back to the Future!! Dude we just watched it this summer.” Ransom: “Which one was that” Holster: “Dude.” -Chowder very nervously approaching the baby but he’s too shy to ask to hold the kid because he is so smol until Jack goes “Would you like to hold–” and Chowder cuts in with “YES I WOULD I REALLY WOULD” and he squishes his face very gently to the baby’s cheek and his eyes light up (Later - Bitty: “Chowder, can I have my son back–” “I’m sorry I’m sorry one more minute” )
If I think of more I’ll put them up but god I love time traveling tropes. I don’t know how they get back maybe Johnson the Metaphysical Goalie warps them back with his wizard powers. Tis a mystery
An airline tried to get a musician to check her 17th-century violin. A ‘wrestling match’ ensued.
By Cleve R. Wootson Jr., Washington Post, June 6, 2017
For the small fraternity of people who make their living
coaxing musical notes out of vulnerable pieces of wood and metal, few things
are more terrifying than seeing an expensive, defenseless instrument disappear
on that little conveyor belt at the airport.
Horror stories abound. A musician checked his $45,000,
75-year-old cello, which airport workers promptly placed beneath somebody’s
golf clubs, snapping its neck. A noted German soloist said airport workers
roughed up his cello case. After his flight, he found his $20,000 bow broken in
half. A Florida State University music student on a flight to Tallahassee found
splinters of wood where her cello used to be.
Those stories and many, many more have converged into an
unwritten musicians’ rule: Never trust an airline with your instrument.
So when a Houston-based gate agent at United Airlines told
Yennifer Correia that she would have to check her 17th-century violin, which
costs more than her car, the first words out of her mouth were: “What are my
The situation soured from there, her attorney says,
resulting in what is becoming another black eye for an airline industry that
dragged a bleeding man off an overbooked flight this spring and allegedly
booted a family from a flight over a birthday cake.
Correia, a classical violinist on her way to play in the
summer season at the Missouri Symphony Orchestra, asked for an airport
supervisor. But the supervisor said there were no other options. The violin had
to be checked.
Her attorney, Phil MacNaughton, recounted what happened from
there. Correia told the supervisor, “I can’t not take my violin on board. I’ll
pay the money. I’ll take another flight. Just tell me what I can do.”
As the altercation intensified, Correia told the agents that
she would appeal to their bosses and asked the supervisor for her name,
MacNaughton said. The supervisor said she wanted Correia’s name and reached for
the tag on her luggage.
“Without provocation, the supervisor for the Chicago-based
carrier then lunged for Ms. Correia’s case and, incredibly, tried to wrestle it
away from the musician,” said a statement written by MacNaughton.
“I start screaming, ‘Help, help, help, can somebody record
what’s happening because this lady’s trying to take my personal suitcase from me,’”
Correia told Houston NBC-affiliate KPRC.
The supervisor said she was going to call security, and
Correia apparently responded, “Please do.” Then the supervisor dashed off. That
was the last Correia saw of her.
During the scuffle, MacNaughton said, Correia’s hand was
injured. She doesn’t believe there is permanent damage, but she went to see a
hand specialist “because the stakes are high.”
MacNaughton said someone from United left a voice mail on
Correia’s phone. He asked that anyone who had a video recording of the
confrontation contact him.
“Why can’t these people be polite?” MacNaughton said. “I’m
sure that’s what their CEO is wondering. It’s like kind of everybody knows if
you’re frustrated with a surgeon, you don’t grab their hands. This [supervisor]
was willing to get in a wrestling match over a violin.”
Other recent confrontations involving airlines have stoked
outrage: pilots hitting passengers and passengers brawling with each other and
police. In late April, a Delta Air Lines passenger said he was kicked off a
plane for using the restroom.
Musicians should have it a little easier, in theory. Federal
law requires airports to accommodate musicians who want to carry their
instruments with them in the airplane’s cabin. MacNaughton said he’s not
certain whether United officials violated that law.
Either way, Correia was looking to put the incident behind
her and get to Missouri.
She booked a flight for Tuesday on American Airlines instead
of United–and carried her violin the whole time.
