Song prompt: “How to Save a Life” by The Fray lyrics bold and italicized

No pairing.  Just Sam and Dean.  Sam’s POV dealing with his brother.  Please no hatred towards Mary.  I love her.  This is just about Sam helping Dean deal.

Save a Life

Through the years I have watched him spiral through the guilt and despair of all he has survived.  He has his vises and his coping mechanisms.  None of which are healthy or useful.  But he’s still here, so I will always take it as a win.  He refuses to talk to me.  “No chick flick moments.”  It’s such horse shit though.  He’s an emotional guy.  It’s what makes him so damn good at his job.  But it eats at him.  And then he explodes.  I can feel it coming.  It won’t be long before someone suffers because of it.  He will most likely be the one to suffer the most. The explosion will then cause him guilt and the cycle will begin anew.  But I have to do this.

My dear trans/nonbinary kids, 

This one goes out to you who are not actually kids anymore, to those of you who did not start to identify as trans/nonbinary before you turned 20, 30, 40 or above. 

To those of you who look back and think “Oh, this is what i’ve been feeling my whole life! I didn’t knew there’s a word for that.” 

To those of you who have been (directly or indirectly) discouraged from exploring their gender idenity at a earlier age. 

To those of you whose gender identity changed as you got older.  

To those of you who stayed “in the closet” until now, for any reason. 

You’re a important part of the lgbt+ community. You are just as valid and real as those who (openly) identified as trans/nonbinary since childhood. 

With all my love, 

Your Tumblr Mom 

So my partner went on a casino trip with a few of his old high school friends recently.

At the casino he got drunk off his ass almost immediately (he really likes scotch), before he even had a chance to gamble.

So of course it wouldn’t make sense for this shitfaced 23 year old boy with very little blackjack experience to win any money, right?

Well luck magic is my specialty and I made him a charm before he left, and he ended up turning $40 into $400 that night.

And now all his friends are super curious about his mysterious magic boyfriend.

And that’s why luck magic is my favorite.

What fresh hell was this?  It seemed that no matter where he went or what he did he just couldn’t escape.  He was an archangel! Sure, he had dalliances with humans but this ache in his chest, this incessant need to be near you, this was an emotion he had never experienced.  When it first began he thought it might have been a curse.  He had gone to Castiel for help as possibly the only angel who had some understanding of humans.  After much research and several false diagnosis of the problem Castiel had come to the conclusion that Gabriel was in fact completely, hopelessly in love.  “That can’t be it.  There must be some other explanation.”  He had insisted.  He couldn’t love you, it wasn’t right.

I'm so pissed, that crusty Q-tip Sanders, who never had a real job beyond holding office in the most elite political institution in the US, told Tom Perez, a civil rights and labor leader, to "welcome working people" to the Democratic Party. FOH!!

Oh, come on that’s not fair, Sanders was also the mayor of Burlington, Vermont!
