What actually helps me deal with TOZX is the fact that it's diverged SO far from the game that the two could legitimately be viewed as separate universes now. So anything the anime "makes canon" doesn't affect the game in my mind, because the game has a near entirely different set of canon events that are in direct opposition to the anime. The two stories just can't exist in the same canon. This includes things like character relationships.

Yep, basically how I view it too.  Except it’s not a particularly good telling of the story, so, I’m whipping out the sporks and skewering it like the badfic that it is at this point.  Like, I feel better laughing and poking fun at it as opposed to stewing in my own salt, so I’m just going to find ways to make fun of it as best as I can.  And if you guys laugh with me, hey, all the better.

Lily Sunder Has Some Regrets/The Most Sacred Oath

I’m guessing you can’t hear me squeal over your own squeals, but I’ll just keep at it a little longer, okay? Okay. 

Man, this episode read like very good fanfiction, and while I’m disappointed Dean never found out Cas used to be a woman (although, they did have a conversation about that, so Steve gets points anyway), everything else was plain amazing. I’m actually tempted to do a recap that’s just shouting words into the void, because, seriously, that would be enough, but - okay, let me watch that thing again and then I’ll write a proper meta.


(Deep breath.)

So, let’s get one thing out of the way: we already know why this story works so damn well, but it’s worth saying it one more time, because this is what the whole episode was about.

A human and an angel: not meant to be.

Ishim said humans are dangerous to angels, and I agree with him: if angels want to understand humans, to truly become friends with them, to live among them - well - look at what’s that done to Cas. Caring about humans is, apparently, different than caring about another angel; it forces you to give up something deep inside yourself. You become - weaker, unhappy. Doubt-ridden. Trapped between two worlds, and fit for neither. And as for humans - if they truly wish to get closer to angels - to speak their language, to know enough about their magic and weapons to be able help them when they’re in trouble or hurt - that literally costs them their souls.

It’s a tragedy. It’s doomed.

But, of course, it’s not completely hopeless. What would be the point of writing a love story if you know from the start nothing can never happen at all? No - love can conquer all, and this episode dangled it in front of us - the angel who chose humanity, who tried to defend the person he loved from his own brothers, and the human who was fascinated with angels and knew enough about them to make it work.

(They had a daughter, sort of, and let’s cry about that for the rest of eternity, because can you see it? Dean loves kids, and -)

Anyway. We’ve known for a while that angels - I mean, the price Cas paid for his loyalty to the Winchesters (his love for Dean) - that’s harrowing. But this idea that humans need to sacrifice their soul to become closer to angels - thanks for that, Steve. I’m fine.

And surely, at this point, there is no other way this could end? Because what Sam and Cas share - yeah, that’s what friendship looks like, but Dean and Cas - right. And so Cas went and said it (“You mean too much to me.”) and Dean just holed up in his room for the rest of the week? He never said a word to Cas? And, Jesus, Cas thinks Dean’s angry? At him? I’m glad this, at least, was spelled out clearly, because apparently some people still don’t get it and read Dean’s emotions at face value and no, Dean was not angry - he was worried out of his damn mind, and he’s got reason to be, because Cas still doesn’t fucking get it: “I don’t regret what I did, even if it costs me my life”.

The idiot - the useless, fucking idiot.

…. definitely has got something to do with a guy and Kotoko’s face.


From the “Intro to A Scandal in Belgravia” on PBS:

Martin Freeman: “Generally, Sherlock knows he’s the cleverest person in the room. And so when he meets Irene, he kind of…he might not be the cleverest person in the room, and that’s upsetting. And also not only that, but he might also want to…kiss the cleverest person in the room, you know. So I think that confuses him in all kinds of ways.”

I highly recommend watching the actual clip so that you can hear the way he hesitates to find the…well, TV-friendly word in that third gif.


and yet again I try to draw cool shit but cant decide what to go with in the end
