“Aliya Mustafina already became the Olympic champion twice. The first time — at the games in 2012 in London, after a year of trauma from the European championship. This summer she participated in the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro where she won three medals: “gold” for bars, “silver” in the team and “bronze” in individual all-round.
Now the gymnast will take a two-year break. “In gymnastics I got everything, but I will return” — Aliya says and promises to represent Russia at the next Olympic games which will take place in 2020 in Tokyo.”
dean and sam and mary. dean and mary. sam and mary. MARY where do i even begin
dean held onto memories of her for the past 37 years and my god he hid from her to drink in the KITCHEN with old photos of her because maybe she’s not what he remembers and it’s so hard for him because they knew each other but they’re both more and different as people compared to themselves 33 years ago and it’s almost like meeting a really distant relative you loved a lot as a kid but you haven’t seen them for years and now you’re older and it’s awkward for both of you involved and dean just. “do you still like pie?” and dean just SHOVING PIE INTO HIS FACE BECAUSE HELL YEAH HE STILL LOVES PIE because he still wants to stay as the little boy who mary used to love!!!! not the mess that he became. dean is just. AHH
MEANWHILE sam has basically no basis to base her on except for dean and john’s stories about her so they don’t really have to build on top of anything like dean and mary do. they can just start anew and it’s going to be a little slow at first, but and as soon as that first note of the music started when Mary and Sam were bonding my heart shriveled up into a tiny burnt bread end and crumbled into pieces and there was a lot of keyboard smashing on my phone while wailing and sending them to @hearthmistress
AND MARY she is so so so wonderful she’s so HUMAN i love that they’re not shying away from making her both a soft human while still maintaining that she was capable enough of a hunter to fight off an angel back in her prime days all the while she tries so so hard to fit into this world she was thrown into. CALLING THE INTERNET i went from feeling for dean to almost blowing the roof off with how much i love mary
also she tries so hard to re-establish that easy mother-son relationship with dean, she tries so hard to bond with sam, she’s trying so hard and it makes me so happy that she’s putting active effort into this. not just because there’s finally a parental figure for dean and sam who’s actually trying to meet them halfway and tries their best for them, she’s such a genuine person in all the best ways and real and i love how well rounded she feels as a character and WOW I LOVE MARY A LOT
