10x17 “Inside Man”
Beware of the Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing…

I know I am a little late with this and I apologize in advance if this has been talked about extensively already, but I just needed to express my love for the entirety of the Dean “hustling pool”-montage again, because it was so damn well executed (also may I direct your attention to the bottom gif and how Dean is basically half lieing on the pool table and standing just on one foot)

And to me it made perfect sense to end this scene with Dean looking in the mirror catching himself sporting black eyes - and it is actually not even important whether or not his brain played tricks on him or not or if maybe Rowena had her hands in it - because to me from the moment he ruffled hi hair and went on to play the Abercrombie Rejects Dean was taunting his inner demon to come out.

Of course Dean has been playing this game for more than half his life, he never was so vulnerable as he is now though since he didn’t have a past of being a demon and carrying a mark on his arm that feeds into whatever darkness it can find on the inside. So while previously this was a means to earn money and have some fun, now he is in danger by engaging in such behaviour to activate or trigger a part of himself that enjoys this sort of “playing others” in a way that Demon!Dean enjoyed it.

To me it is endlessly interesting not only to study and look at Dean’s “I’m pretending to be drunk so I can hustle the hell out of you”-routine, but also how his entire posture and the way he carries himself changes. He goes from cute harmless pretend drunk guy to a menacing and calculating “shark” and you could see that change in his eyes as well. It was a process and during that process he sort of “shed his skin”.

As long as he goads the college kids on he keeps his green jacket on, when we revisit the scene later we can see Dean shed the jacket and now is only in his red shirt. The wolf leaving the sheep’s clothing behind. From green to red. To me the message is rather clear. From green (the colour of life, hope and humanity since it matches Dean’s eyey colour and he arguably always was the epitome of humanity) to red (the colour of seduction and danger in it’s negative extremes). It doesn’t take a professor to read that change that way, just compare it to traffic lights for example: green means okay, red means alarm.

So in that regard you could say Dean sort of abandoned his human side to let his “other” side come out to play, when he collects the cash and the watch he takes his jacket with him, keeps his humanity close, but lets the wolf remain without the sheep’s cover.

To me when Dean goes into the bathroom to splash water on his face, it wasn’t purely an action of refreshment, it was a moment of recollection and calming down from the “high” and joy playing the college kids provided. Their horrified faces when realizing that they have been played and are unable to do anything about it, delighted him in a fashion I think would have delighted Demon!Dean as well. So to me it comes to no surprise that when Dean looks into the mirror he sees black eyes - he triggered this side of him to come out, he might have just thought and hoped the demon wasn’t that little below the surface.

And as I said before, I don’t care if this was Rowena messing with him or if it was Dean’s mind messing with him or the real deal - the effect it has on Dean is the same in any regard and him not telling Sam by the end of the episode, just as everybody lied to everybody in this episode, setws the tone for what’s going to come. Nothing good…

|based on the request: Your writing is just amaze balls 😭😭😭 please could you write me a Johnson imagine where I go and surprise him on tour or whatever after not seeing each other for months???💖|

|2.1k words woo, it’s rlly long and boring tbh, it’s rushed af but idk, fluffy Johnson for you, masterlist is in my description and if you want to request, please do, but I need more requests for the other boys😫😘 AND THANK YOU FOR 700 FOLLOWERS ITS CRAZY HOLY SHIT I LOVE YOU ALL SO MUCH|

“And here we have a whining Jack Johnson, sulking over how much he misses his girlfriend.”

“Screw you, Sam.”

“I’m pretty sure you’d rather screw your girlfriend!-”

The 10 second long video comes to an end, leaving me smiling. Sammy is pretty much documenting everything that Jack does and posting it onto his Snapchat story and sending them to me. For the past 120 seconds, it’s just been videos of Jack being comforted by Nate and Sammy mocking Jack and Jack threatening to beat Sams ass.

That’s my boy.

Jack has been everywhere but California in the past month and a half so we haven’t had any physical contact at all. He’s been touring with the boys and doing one off shows and meet and greets and going back home to Omaha to be with his family for a few days every few weeks, but he hasn’t had the chance to come back to LA.

I would normally jump at the chance to go travelling with the boys, some of my best memories have come from the Jack and Jack DigiTour, but I couldn’t this time around.

I recently got a job at a daycare centre to help pay off my student loans and buy me food. I don’t have much vacation time and I didn’t feel confident enough to ask for some time off after I had only been working there for three weeks.

The red barrier across the top of the Snapchat app pops up as I receive another picture from Sammy.

It’s a picture of Jack tucked under Skates arm with his face hidden in his hands. My heart clenched at the sight. I instantly reply back with a selfie of my pouting sadly, captioning it: “My poor baby😫 I’ll call him”

I make sure that the photo actually sent before I exit the app and open my calls list, Jacks contact being on speed dial and at the top of the recents list. I quickly press his name and hold the phone to my ear. He answers after about 3 rings.

“Hey,” He sighs into the phone, making me pout even more. “I miss you.”

“I miss you too, J, but what’s wrong? Why are you so glum today?”

“Because I just miss you so much and it’s hitting me really hard today. I haven’t seen you in so long and I’m under so much stress and I don’t feel good about traveling without you.”

“I get it that you’re under pressure to perform well and be a perfect star and that’s putting you under a lot of stress, but you need to try and cheer up, please. I saw a video of last nights performance and I’m not going to sugarcoat it for you, what the fuck happened out there?”

He just wasn’t in it, not at all. He was forgetting lyrics, constantly yawning and he never smiled. All of the fans could tell something was wrong, Jack is usually so happy and excited when he’s on stage.

“I feel like I need you here to be able to perform at my absolute best. I haven’t had a proper nights sleep since I’ve been away, I can’t even sleep without you.”

“Baby,” I whine, resting my head against my pillow. “Don’t say that, you’ll make me cry!”

“I can’t help it, I just miss you.” He chuckles through the mic and I can just picture the sad, innocent little smile on his face. “I really wish you were here.”

“I wish I was there too, J.” I sigh, rolling my head back. “When are you coming home?”

“Not for a while… Can you come out for a weekend? Please? I’ll pay for your ticket.”

“I have work babe, I can’t.”

“On a weekend?”

I scrunch my eyes up and purse my lips, “Yeah, one of the moms needs me to look after her kid on Saturday night and she’s paying me quite a lot, I can’t pass up the money.”

I can’t pass up the money because I already brought my ticket for a flight on Sunday morning.

“I’ll give you the money, Y/N! Please, I just really need to be with you… Fuck it. You know what?”

I give him the ultimate rhetorical answer to his question, “What?”

“I’m just gunna leave, I’m gunna come home to you first thing in the morning.” His voice modifies from being soft and sweet to determined and serious in a matter of seconds.

Is he being serious? Does he really think that Gilinsky, Nate and Sam would just let him run off and ditch them when he’s a key performer at an event?

Does he think that I’d let him do that?

Hell no.

“Jack, you’re staying where you are, there is no way I’m letting you leave the boys.” I argue, keeping my voice strong and firm to keep myself from cracking and blurting out my plan.

“I’m leaving to be with you!”

I roll my eyes, “This isn’t a Nicholas Sparks novel, J, I’m not going to let you sacrifice your entire career just so you can fly to Los Angeles to be with me for a few hours.”

“But babe-”

“No buts! I’m not letting you leave!”

“You’re so bossy, Y/N, but please, I need to be with you…”

“I love you, but no. And if you dare try to argue with me about it, I will hang up and refuse to speak to you.”

“Y/N, I am coming home-”

“Bye, Jack. Love you.”

And I hung up, ignoring the rest of his calls, texts, Tweets and Snapchats for the rest of the day.

-

Two days later, I still haven’t spoken to Jack and I’m currently in Oregon, where the guys are performing a show tonight. I told Sam and Skate that I’m coming, who told Gilinsky who didn’t tell Johnson. Obviously. It would delete the purpose of it being a surprise visit if they told him.

I manage to get out of the airport fast and get into a free cab before the rush of people force their way out and into random cars. I give the driver the name of the hotel and relax in the back of the comfortably warm car.

Sam and Gilinsky are going to take Jack out to get some food as soon as I tell them that I’m 5 minutes away from the hotel so when he gets back, he’ll be surprised. Nate is staying back at the hotel so I can easily get into the room without the hassle of the front desk.

To my surprise, there aren’t that many fans outside of the hotel, not like there were when the Jack and Jack tour was going on. There’s a few people scattered around the entrance and sitting on the benches and grass area, just waiting for one of the boys to walk out and greet them.

I pay the driver and pull my hood over my head, I don’t really want to get stopped when I don’t have much time to get in and hidden (in Johnsons bed). I only brought a small carry on bag with me so I’m quick to jump out of the cab and scurry into the warmth of the hotel, where Nate is sat in the lobby waiting for me.

“Yo,” He grins when he sees me, jumping up from the seat and walking towards me. He wraps an arm around my shoulder and gives me a short side hug. “Long time no see.”

“It’s been too long.” I sigh, gently patting his back in the hug. “I missed all of you guys, I can’t even lie.”

“We all missed you too, partially because Johnson was a moping asshole and someone needed to cheer him up.”

“I reckon he’s gunna cry.”

“We already made a bet about it.” Nate laughs, shaking his head with his laugh.

“Why wasn’t I included in that? I would’ve made easy money!” Yeah, betting on my boyfriends emotions because I know him so well - girlfriend of the year.

“We’ll include you next time, Y/N, just hurry your ass up because Sam said they’re around the corner.” Nate literally tugs my shoulder and pulls me forward, towards the thankfully open elevator.

I don’t know if I’m actually going to be able to pull this off, I’ve never surprised anyone before! I don’t even know what I’m supposed to say when Jack walks in, do I just stand there and awkwardly wave or do I attack him with a hug?

There’s so many options but so little time.

As soon as the elevator reaches the floor the room is on, Nate rushes me down the hall to where the Jacks room is, scanning it open with what I assume is Gilinskys key card and literally shoving me inside.

He slams the door open and shoves me in, like I’m a fucking rag doll or something, he just doesn’t seem to care. At least I landed on my feet.

“Go and sit on Johnsons bed and just wait,” I go to ask which bed is my boyfriends, but Nate cuts me off as if he can read my mind. “His is the one closest to the bathroom.”

“Okay, thank you for helping me out with this, it means a lot!” I rush, flashing Nate a big smile before he slams the door shut and rushes down the hall. I guess they’re closer than I thought.

I place my bag on the small couch under the window and take a seat on the bed Nate instructed me to. I lean over and click on the lamp, not really knowing what else to do. But just seconds later, I can hear shuffling footsteps and muffled words from outside the door.

“Are you sure you don’t wanna come back to mine and Skates room? We’re gunna order up some desserts and order a movie.” I hear Sam say, clapping his hands together in a ‘it’s a plan’ sort of clap.

“Nah man, I’m just gunna go call my girlfriend and try to catch some zees.” I hear my boyfriend loud and clear and my heart starts racing. I’ve been longing to hear him in person for so long now.

“Well just come down if you want, we’ll be there.”

“Thanks man, see you later.”

“Tell Y/N that we say hi.” Gilinsky adds, but I can hear the teasing hint in his voice that makes me smile and become all giddy. I feel like I might through up, I’m that excited and nervous right now.

“Um, okay, sure…” Jack mutters in response to his best friend before he goes quiet, he’s probably standing right in front of the door right now.

I hear a small beep and suddenly, the door creeks open. Jack carelessly walks in without even looking up from the floor, running a hand through his hair, tugging at it softly and sighing.

“What’s up, buttercup?” I ask, sitting up straight with my feet against the floor, ready to stand up.

Jack jolts backwards at the sound of my voice, backing himself against the wall with a hand rested over his heart and the other holding his forehead. “Holy shit!”

I raise my eyebrows and laugh a little bit, “You okay?”

He looks at me in shock before looking at the floor, shaking his head in disbelief before looking up at me again. “What the hell- Y/N! What the fuck?!”

“Hi.” I smile, I slowly stand up and walk towards my boyfriend. “Are you okay?” I ask quietly.

“Fuck, baby girl,” Jack throws his arms around my neck and pulling me tight against his chest, hiding his face in the crook of my neck. “I can’t believe you’re here, this is fucking amazing, I missed you so much.” He mumbles into my skin, lightly peppering kisses every time he made a point. “I really fucking love you, oh my God.”

I can’t help the few tears that escape my eyes as I cling onto Jack, wrapping my arms around his middle and squeezing him as hard as I can, without hurting him.

“Thank you so much for coming out, baby, I don’t think you realise how much this means to me.” He muffles his words into my neck, wriggling his hands into the ends of my hair.

“I needed to be with you, J.”

“I fucking love you, Y/N, thank you so fucking much.”

“Don’t thank me, babe.” I smile, shaking my head into his chest. “I came because I love you.”

“You’re seriously helping me by being here, Y/N. I’ll finally be able to sleep and I’ll be able to perform properly because I’ve seen you and the fans will be happy with me again-”

“Hey, Jack?” I mumble, cutting him off from his little speech and pulling my face away from his warm chest. “Could you shut up and kiss me?”

He nods frantically with a loved up smile, looking down at me and grabbing my chin with his fingers. “I love you, beautiful.”

10x02 “Reichenbach”
10x17 “Inside Man”

Of New Endings and Old Beginnings - The Return of Demon!Dean?

There were a lot of visual and narrative callbacks in this episode, but I think one of the most significant ones were the ones captured above, because in my opinion they let a lot of darkness - still residing within Dean - shine through, a darkness that overhelmed and scared him when he looked at himself in the mirror and his eyes were pitch black.

The setting in a bar alone provides the perfect visual and narrative callback as does Dean’s clothing. But it’s the small things that speak the loudest. The small trident in Crowley’s glass, him choosing the same drink like in 10x02 and Dean using the same figures of speech as before. And of course Dean being confronted with being accused of wanting/having killed the parent of someone.

10x02 “Reichnbach” basically framed Dean’s and Crowley’s fallout - their “break up”, so to speak - 10x17 “Inside Man” framed them sort of “making up” and reconciling and bonding over a couple of drinks at the bar.

Back then it was the beginning of the end of Demon!Dean since the episode ended with Sam taking Dean with him. If we compare it to what we got this episode I think it’s save to ask ourselves if we may have just witnessed - in an episode that both brothers lied to one another and went separate ways, so the exact opposite to 10x02 - the beginning of Demon!Dean again?

It was a weird atmosphere playing over the entire scene,in the beginning to me Dean seemed very menacing and very Demon!Dean - especially in the way he carried himself and talked - later on, when they are talking about family not so much any more.

In any case… Carver said this episode would change Dean’s and Crowley’s relationship forever. This leaves me wondering. Where both honest with one another? Will Crowley go back to being the King of Hell he used to be and rensent Dean and Sam for making him “soft”? Or will him an Dean go back to their old ways and howling at the moon together from time to time, the closer Dean comes to demon again.

If I should make a guess, I could imagine Crowley looking for a cure for Dean, feeling responsible since he brought this onto Dean in the first place. He cares about Dean that’s clear as day, so will he be the one to find a cure and dying in the end to redeem himself? I think it’s possible, but I might be biased in that regard…

Either way, it seems we have reached the beginning of the end…

Re-posting art: Friendly Advice.

(posting this for the Percy Jackson tags as well because i’ve scrolled a little and already noticed a lot of stolen works)

Not going to jump down peoples throats here, just would like to point out why you probably want to avoid doing this. I don’t mean anything hateful by this. It is meant to help everyone here.

Many users are passionate about their fave artists work being re-posted, you could be attacked for re-posting, please just keep reading.

Every note that your re-post gets, is a note that the original artists post will not receive, this is in fact damaging to the artist, as they don’t receive accurate feedback of what they’ve done. The lack of attention could for example cause them to doubt this specific work and they may remove it under the impression it’s not so great (I have seen this happen before), When really all the notes they were missing were sitting with the artwork you have re-posted. I know you may mean well but please keep this in mind.  When an Artist works for hours on something for free and posts it, only to find it has been taken down and then promptly posted by another user, it’s a bit of a punch in the face. Artworks are a piece of who an artist is.

Most artists, as far as I’m aware, are not particularly fond of another re-posting their work. It is often assumed, by  either the Artist, fans, or both; that you have stolen and posted the artwork as your own. If this artwork has come from another website, the chances they have an account on multiple sites and have posted their artwork around said sites is very likely. We live in a time where people have multiple accounts on many social media networks in which they can and do share their art.

Sometimes adding a tag to their DeviantART or Tumblr URL is not enough, and they will still want their work removed. In this case you should delete the work immediately. Always check for permission first, PLEASE REMEMBER THIS.

Granted some artists are alright with re-posting. If they are, it would say so somewhere on their profile or included in whatever description-like section is available to be written in. If the Artist does not have written anywhere that it is okay to re-post their work, please respect them by not re-posting their work.

If it does not mention this anywhere and you would still like to re-post, or use it in a video, please ask the artist for permission to use the specific artwork in question.

I do not enjoy seeing posts from my favourite Artists clearly displeased and upset that someone has pulled their artwork off of their page (Whether Tumblr, DeviantART or another site) and re-posted it onto this site. If you have received permission then state the fact you have permission in the description, caption, comment section etc. Make it clear to all.

That being said, please, PLEASE:

1. DO NOT RE-POST. DO NOT POST ARTWORK THAT YOU HAVE NOT CREATED.

2. DO NOT RE-POST ARTWORK THAT YOU HAVE NOT BEEN GIVEN PERMISSION TO RE-POST.

3. IF THE ARTIST DOES NOT EXPRESSLY SAY THAT RE-POSTING IS ACCEPTABLE, THEN DON’T ASSUME THAT IT IS OK. ASSUME THAT IT IS NOT, AND DO NOT RE-POST.

4. CHECK THE ARTISTS ACCOUNTS. RESEARCH. YOU MAY FIND THAT THEY HAVE STATED TO NOT RE-POST THEIR ART ANYWHERE ELSE. RESPECT THIS.

5. REMEMBER. TUMBLR USERS ARE ALWAYS WATCHING. GOD FORBID THAT YOU RECEIVE HATEFUL MESSAGES, BUT IT IS
ENTIRELY POSSIBLE YOU WILL BE VERBALLY ABUSED FOR TAKING ANOTHER PERSONS ART. SO PLEASE DO NOT DO IT.

I repeat. Please do not re-post artwork, it does not belong to you and you have not asked for permission to do so. It can really upset the Artists and fans.

(I’ve not put this under a “Read More” because I feel this is important enough to be a full post. IF it’s such a big deal then please message me off-anon so I may privately respond.)

!!!

Dear mutuals and followers, it came to my attention that there is this user with the url bapgraphy who will delete captions and credits from ALL the posts she reblogs (if they have captions and credits that is). So if you happen to follow her, please DON’T reblog from her but try to reblog from the original source.

I tried to message her privately asking her not to remove the captions next time she reblogs posts because 1) it’s not nice to edit the original posts, and 2) especially when they contain translation or fam cam credits because we all know it is polite to credit people’s hard work. Yet she chose to ignore and unfollowed me. A friend of mine, daaehyun message her too and her reply:

“Hi,
I understand that removing the captions is considered impolite to some people, but it’s not a universal opinion. The captions section is open for editing to *all* bloggers; basically meaning that it isn’t only the gif-makers (and that includes me) who can edit the captions and/or remove them entirely.
The captions section is, in fact, a part of every blogger/reblogger’s choice and if it wasn’t, then that section would be locked just like the artwork section. That is is the reason that some gif-makers put their signatures in a corner of their work. Furthermore, the top corner of every post reveals the original source of the very artwork that has been reflagged, and thus it is already credited.
I respect that you have an opinion, but I do not share the same view as you and can’t follow your request. I can, however, unfollow you — if it’s a severe problem to you. But I will continue to reblog as I do now until Tumblr makes a rule out of the captions section and/or locks it entirely. Until then, every blogger is free to choose whether the captions should be allowed on their blog or not.
I hope that you will respect my point of view as I do yours. Thanks.”

Our point is not about the original source being reflagged or not, what we are trying to tell her is that by removing the captions when reblogging, she is also removing the credits.

Oh btw, she post gifs too, WITH CAPTIONS AND PROPER CREDITS. So it is quite obvious she knows the importance of crediting something that does not belong to her. Then why can’t she do the same for all posts that belong to other people by not removing the credits? So please, everyone, do NOT reblog stuff from her but click on the original source and reblog from them instead :) This is to make sure you don’t reblog something that is being tampered with as well as to support the owners’ hard work. Thank you!!
