Since I don’t think I’ve actually written this reasoning out yet, and I kinda mentioned it on the podcast… I’m being contrary again and not intending to.
They doubled down on there being consequences for the specific action of breaking a blood oath, which Cas did by killing Billie.
And yet none of the terrible things that happened in the last half of the season were a consequence of that action.
Cas died by Lucifer’s hand. Lucifer was out because Crowley didn’t let him go back to the cage, but he was out in the first place because Cas let him out. The events of the finale were the culmination of decisions that had been made by Cas and Crowley themselves, which resulted in their deaths.
And if we wanna trace this whole series of events back, Cas let Lucifer out of the cage in order to help defeat the Darkness, which was let due to Sam’s endless search to remove the Mark of Cain from Dean’s arm, which Dean took willingly at Crowley’s deliverance in order to stop Abaddon, who would have not been a problem anymore if Dean hadn’t convinced Sam to not finish the trials to seal the gates of hell. *deep breath*
And the Men of Letters appeared in response as a response to all of those events as a side effect - another type of consequence.
I look at Cas’s decision to kill Billie, and if have to compare it to something else contained in this season, two things are coming to mind: Dean’s original deal with Billie in order to escape the military, and Mary’s deal with Azazel.
(Side note: I have always just considered all of their stupid deals to be stupid decisions. All of their deals have been stupid decisions, but not all of their stupid decisions have been deals. Point being: I equate the two quite heavily.)
We never got to see the consequences of Dean’s deal because it was broken, but we knew what the consequences were: a Winchester would die.
Mary brought John back to life, which set off an earlier series of events and another series of consequences, which Dean listed off for her one by one by one. Sam’s powers. Being Lucifer’s vessel. Going to hell.
Other stupid decisions have a fairly defined path of consequences. And Cas’s specific stupid decision of breaking a blood oath should have consequences specifically tied to that decision.
When this show has been fairly consistent about how ‘there’s always consequences’ and 'there’s always a price that you pay in blood’ and when they mention 'consequences on a cosmic scale,’ I just don’t get why they would pull this weird gimmicky 'there’s always consequences EXCEPT FOR THIS ONE TIME.’
You just don’t get it. What! I’m asking for guy advice, you are a guy - what’s not to get? First of all, guys, they don’t ask for advice. And secondly, I’m not going to help you get my partner into bed. Why not? It’s not like you want her. Unless…Do you want her?
So apparently I never posted this idea.. I don’t really consider it mine since I was heavily inspired by florbe-triz’s Delinquent!Mob AU.. but anyways..
So imagine.. everything is the same but Mahiru is a delinquent.. how you may ask? Well…
Remember how his view of the world was really impacted when his Uncle was there to take him in after his mother’s death?… weeeelll what if he wasn’t there?.. what if he never took him in and nobody wanted him?.. like would he become a foster child?.. I don’t really know how the system works but just imagine it for now.. he would’ve never learned his views from his uncle that kinda make him what he his..
I know that’s kinda odd, considering that Mahi is literal sunshine and I bet he still can be (to some extent) but you know, I’ve had a lot of foster friends and they’ve had some dark times so it’s only natural… Mahi would rebel. And maybe not just for himself because he is a pretty selfless person.. but maybe for other children?..
…I dunno.. I’m not as complex as others with coming up with stories… ^^; add headcannons to this or message me some, I would love to hear~..!! 💙
warnings: fight scene, bloody and gory, flirty Minhyun, man Minhyun’s different here, still mafia related, two more chapters then boom done, someone finally breaks, Minhyun getting real tired of Daniel’s shit, strong language, Kita na Kita (I Finally See You).
Setting the pots outside your store was what you normally did in the morning, but today was an exception. A man was standing outside the boutique, he had shoved his hands inside his pockets while waiting. You stared at him for a minute or two to get a glimpse of his face until he turned around and met your own gaze making him smile.
You averted your gaze to fix the plants outside the closed store before turning the sign. For a split second, you said to the male without facing him, “I’d rather stay inside than wait for the rain to pour.”
He conceded, entering the shop and strolling around the garden. You eyed the guy, a grin creeping up your lips as you watched him observe the hanging plants. Thereafter, you looked back at your desk proceeding to work; however, he interrupted you, “I’m Hwang Minhyun.”
You said, “I know who you are, my grandparents used to talk about you. They tried to set me up with you as a matter of fact.”
He licked his lips whilst nodding his head at your straightforward attitude, he knew you; could almost recite your entire life, and how your grandparents describe you. He just stared from far away at most times.
“Why didn’t you?” He questioned. You replied, “We just met.”
“I’ve known you for years. You just never bothered to stop and look around.” He blurted out which finally made you face him. Minhyun added afterwards, “Do you want to take the day off? Go on a drive?”
“How about tomorrow around six in the morning?” You scheduled, noticing another beam from him. Minhyun drove back to the TRXY bar that evening, a scene unfolding itself inside their room. Daniel was about to throw a punch at Seonho, but Minhyun was quick enough to react and thus he restrained Daniel.
