Hi! So, does this mean that Sam has completed the first of the Trials for closing the gates of hell? Or does he have to intend to close them?
Hi there! I’ll start out with a few comments, and then I’ll try to answer this as best I can. First, I am in Downtown Migraineland right now. I apologize in advance for any weird incoherency in this reply…
(note from the future, i.e. nearly 4 hours after I started trying to piece this reply together: My migraine is gone, but this reply went into A LOT OF DETAIL about the parallels not only in this episode, but in all of s12. This ended up being really weird meta on what I think Dabb’s Grand Plan for the entire season is hinging on. IT IS LONG. Just a warning.)
I think a lot of s12 has been paralleling A LOT of the past, turning it inside out, applying it through a different lens or allowing characters to see these things from a different side, and resolving things in a better way.
That said, I think they’ve been referring back to the Demon Tablet Trials and the Angel Fall Spell (because the angel fall spell was a spell, not Trials. Metatron confirmed that). But all the elements of those things are being addressed in different ways, and paralleled to ~similar~ things happening in s12… I’m struggling to try and put this together in a linear narrative that even comes close to connecting all the dots. There’s SO MUCH going on in this episode, I’m not sure that’s really possible, but HECK I WILL TRY.
(second note from the future: this is about 3k long, so it’s going under a cut. THERE IS SO MUCH)
(i am typing this from the floor where I’m curled up around pictures of Andrew Dabb and Davy Perez while weeping gently)

We don’t want to miss any wonderful stories!
Here are some prompts to help you get started:
How often have I said to you that when you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth? - The Sign of Four, Chapter 6
Avatar the Last Airbender/Legend of Korra AU: Sherlock/John are a water, earth, fire, or air bender… Or maybe they’re the Avatar, master of all four elements!
Sherlock is a water elemental and finds out that John is a fire elemental, but oh no! Their love is forbidden due to their opposite elements, oh the angst!
John has a literal fiery temper
Sherlock or John are hiding their superpowers from the other, but what happens when they have to use their elemental magic to save the other from danger?
Sherlock can read people’s future in their tears. One day he comforts a crying John Watson and sees himself in his future
John has always heard voices in the breeze, whispers of people’s lives, observations, deductions that couldn’t possibly come from himself and is especially loud when the wind is strong. One day he meets Sherlock, who seems to be able to the exact same thing…
Sherlock is a master sculptor who has a secret. Whatever he sculpts, from stone, earth, clay, marble, comes to life after he carves their eyes. (gives them souls, so to speak) He is careful never to carve perfect eyes. His latest project is an interpretation of the Vitruvian Man, and he slowly falls in love with his own creation, tentatively named John…
Good luck, everyone!
Please let us know if you would like to be tagged in our future posts and challenge announcements, or if you would like to be removed!

My Dearest Darkles, It has been many a moon since I've last heard from you I hope all is well I yearn to hear your voice and read your mesmerizing words. I hope you are ok wherever you are. Signed, A Lovesick Grisha
Dear Lovesick Grisha,
What a kind message this is. I apologize for my distance lately, I have been busy plotting against the Lantsov exhausted. It is lonely where I am. I consider the letters I’ve received and have yet to answer every day, yet I cannot find the words to reply accordingly. In all honesty, I fear I am losing my flair. Life is a dreadful jest told by an unfunny clown, and I am the flailing punch line. What I should say is, I’m out of practice. Isolation has not been good to me. Forgive me, for I struggle even now to deliver you a satisfying message, and you deserve so much more. One day, I will give you the world– one ruled by a great and worthy leader, not some pretty-faced puppy on a pirate ship.
I want to thank you all for being patient. Both admins have been very busy lately, so we have not been able to get to these applications until now. It was a really hard choice, so we decided to accept eight new members!
New members will be listed below. If you were accepted (congratulations!), please read under the cut for more details
Vaseshipping Week is where Yami will come to life in order to duel Kaiba just like in the new Yu-Gi-Oh movie …just kidding.
This is a week centring around making content for vaseshipping (Atem/Mana and Yami/Mana or DMG). Each day will have a new prompt, then a person has to write, draw or create a fan made content around it. For example, if the prompt for that day is “AU/Fandom Fusion” a person has to create something around that theme for this pairing. Unlike shipping weeks on other blogs in this fandom, there will be only one prompt per day. With that said, if you post something else that is not based on that day’s prompt, it will still be featured on the site if you use the “vaseshipping week” tag.
What type of content can I submit to this when the time comes? Will it be all art?
It can be just about anything. It can be art, fanfiction, playlists, headcanons, AMVs, pictures centring around the pairing (like Atem and Mana figurines kissing or something like that), gifs and anything else you can think of.
The only rule is that to avoid NSFW (mostly things with extreme nudity, lemons or extreme gore) content just in case; if you decide to do a fanfic with smut and extreme gore, tag it as such otherwise it will be not featured on this blog.
What are the prompts for this?
Day1: Heroes Day 2: Birthdays/Time to Party Day 3: End of All Things Day 4: Summer Time/ The Heat Day 5: Escape/ We’re in Trouble Day 6: AUs/Crossovers/ Fandom Fusion Day 7: Free Day
Do I have to produce content for each one of the days?
Nope; if you can’t do all of the days, that’s fine. You can do the whole week as a challenge or do only a single day, it’s all up to you.
How do I submit work for this?
There are two ways to do this:
1) You can submit your work to this blog, using the tagging system when the time comes.
2) You can post a link on your own blog and then tag it “vaseshipping week" ( it will make things much easier for me to search the tags and add them to the blog this way). In addition, if you go this route, you can add any additional tags if you want to. As a rule of thumb, you must post vaseshipping week in the tag otherwise it might not be featured on the blog.
Can I post the content off of this site?
Heck ya! If you want to add your work to another site as well, you are welcome to (I know I sure am going to post my fan fics on FF.net nd AO3, too xD). If you have any other questions about this, don’t be afraid to ask.
If you guys have any other questions, please contact me on my main blog @aquaburst07
Mod Amy (@dragonpigeons) here. Sorry to be a pain but if you follow me you’ve probably noticed the tests I’ve been making. There’s something wrong with the tagging system which means not everything shows up in the search under ‘#yooranweek’ and/or ‘#yooran week’. My own post and someone else’s don’t show up and it is really frustrating…
But anyway, life goes on. YOORAN WEEK MUST GO ON. So if I could get you all to do us an extra favour and tag the blog itself @yooranweek when you make your posts for Yooran Week, that would be most helpful ;-; We really don’t want to miss your posts!
THANK YOU SO MUCH!
- Mod Amy
P.S. We’re already receiving lots of amazing posts, YOU GUYS ARE THE BEST THANK YOU KEEP ‘EM COMING <3
