I think we all know the real stars of Season 10.
EDIT: reposting because I made an insane amount of errors on the last one. My vision is fuck all shitty, so perhaps I should stop making things with small detail.
I’m not saying you cannot dislike her. There are reasons to do so, I’m sure.
But if you loved Castiel at the beginning of his arc, and you hate Hannah now, at the start of hers, which mirrors his in so many ways…
That is all I ask of you.
why do you call readers bookworms? why can’t i be a bookdragon?
So I may or may not be planning out a fairly detailed meta making the case for a queer reading of Citizen Kane.
dragons are mentioned in almost all cultures all across the world even before they had interaction with each other and you’re telling me they didn’t exist
wow it’s almost like some kind of large lizard-like creatures roamed the earth at some point and left fossilized remnants of their bodies behind that ancient cultures were trying to make sense of
Are you kidding me?
That’s not fun? That’s not incredible? That doesn’t say something profound about humanity’s capacity to make sense out of an unknown world, of our thirst for storytelling, our love of the fantastical?
To find such bones buried in the earth, to see the long dead remains of such vast and incredible creatures and to not keep walking, keep on with our lives without giving it a passing thought, because they are old dead things, strange rocks, even, they serve no use, because they do not matter….
But to sit awhile, in the cool quiet of the night, with the every day worries of the world, the confusions of existence, and to wonder.
To think of reasons for finding such a thing, to ask each other.
To look at the shape of the bones, and wonder how they fit together, what kinds of flesh and skin might have grown on those bones, ancient even to those ancient people.
To shiver a little in fear, for humans, though vastly clever, are so small and fragile, and there is little that could not overcome us if it tried, on our own terms, without the groups we have, the things we make.
To think of ways to give such a beast even greater power, something with true might to go with such size, such fierceness, and, by the dying embers of their campfires, ascribe to them the best power humanity had found yet.
For they sit in the safety of that little glow of their fires, and thought of how wolves can be held at bay, tigers will draw back, how even a forest will fall with the power of flames.
And thus dragons were breathed into life, in the darkness, human eyes alight with dancing fire and curiosity and the power of a tale, and took flight.
All across the world, in different cultures, in different places, people who would live and die millennia or miles apart, and we told each other the same kinds of stories.
There is as great a miracle to be found in that, I think, as in any beast.

Did you know that beekeepers have famously attractive eyes ? Every single one of them . I don’t know the science behind it , but studies show beauty is in the eye of the bee holder .
S E Hinton explains in an interview that she
- doesn’t care what’s being written in YA these days
- doesn’t read modern YA
- thinks YA is being done wrong
- BECAUSE THERE ARE TOO MANY GIRL POVS
someone take this trashbag to the dumpster jfc it’s well past ripe
What she is basically saying is “My generation raised boys to be sexist not care about the opinions of girls, so girls of this generation should just shut up”.
It’s not the first time she’s insulted teen girl protagonists, either.
The really funny part is the amount of hatred she seems to have for teenage girls considering her writing career peaked with the book she wrote as a teenage girl.
Yeah, like that matters.
It does! Sometimes, that’s all that matters.
I AM NOT PREPARED FOR CAS TO MEET DEMON!DEAN. I THOUGHT I WAS AND THEN I SAW THIS AND NOW I’M NOT.
I predict an interactive element where the viewer at home can have their heart ripped out at the same time as Cas’s.
If he comes at Dean without this level of understanding I’ll be heartbroken, and if he comes at Dean WITH this level of understanding I’ll just be even more heartbroken. Especially since Dean will most likely not be having any of it.
Last episode Cas was covering his face in horror to hide from the thought of what Dean has become, but now he’s going to end up in the same room actually having to face him. And Dean is 100% not going to be like “I was so damn stupid” this time around. That Dean has gone far away for the time being.
But Cas was here in this episode where Dean *really* got started on the path that loops back around to them meeting next episode and he spent Road Trip just talking to Dean and understanding him and basically just spending the episode existing and supporting, trying to be there for Dean. In the end he had to let him go, and that turned into Dean wandering off and getting the Mark…
And can you imagine if Dean chooses to remember the last day or so before he took the Mark, the last interactions he had with Cas. There’s plenty of worse things Dean could probably say to Cas if he wanted to break him, but imagine him saying, paraphrased to avoid overt Destiel or not, “If you loved me so much why didn’t you stop me leaving?” And maybe Cas stood there on the bridge in the rain being all romance trope-y thinking he shouldn’t let Dean go at the time but he chose to stay and look after Sam (who was admittedly in a terrible state but you know, Sam’s not good leverage with demon!Dean either).
I mean obviously I’m not saying that Dean becoming a demon is Cas’s fault at all but then Sam didn’t exactly kill Mary and Dean was using that to impale Sam with. Imagine him throwing that fact at Cas. Like, “You were stupid for the right reasons” was how Dean rationalised taking on the Mark without reading the terms and conditions.
Just, urgh. Imagine demon!Dean taking this absolutely perfect, adorable moment between the two of them and twisting it into the most painful words you can imagine to throw at Cas.
I need to watch this episode sooner rather than later because sad headcanons and morbid speculation are actually going to do me in. I’m pretty sure for the next few days every adorable gifset I come across of them interacting is going to be like “HOW WILL DEMON!DEAN RUIN EVERYTHING FOREVER?”
What’s it going to take to save Castiel’s grace? Supernatural is all new TOMORROW at 9/8c!
He will what now?
Are…. Are we watching the same show?
Did I imagine the part where Cas said he had made peace with it, that he wouldn’t let another angel die to save him, that he couldn’t let Hannah make a deal to get it back?
I’m pretty sure that hashtag is pretty much the exact opposite of where Cas is right now.
Go ahead, tag it that.
Pointing out Marvel Studios’ lack of on-screen diversity is nowhere near a new phenomenon. As ComicsAlliance’s Andrew Wheeler has memorably pointed out, “If Marvel makes Thor 3 [as its first 2017 release], it will have made ten movies headlined by blond white men named Chris before it makes one movie headlined by someone who isn’t even white.” While not besmirching the talent or integrity of Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth and Chris Pratt, that’s taking lack of diversity to admirably comic levels.
Additionally, the studio’s lack of a movie with a female lead — specifically, a Black Widow feature starring Scarlett Johansson, although fans would also accept a Captain Marvel movie, or even a Squirrel Girl one by this point — has been commented on to such an extent that Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige recently weighed in, saying that he “very much believe[s] in doing it” in concept. “I hope we do it sooner rather than later,” he added at the time, while simultaneously pointing out that Marvel’s ongoing successful franchises make finding slots for new characters and concepts challenging.
That is somewhat of a smokescreen, in terms of excuses. As this summer’s Guardians of the Galaxy shows, Marvel has no problem introducing new characters and concepts — in fact, we’re due to have one per year for the next couple of years, with Ant-Man coming next year and Doctor Strange landing in 2016. In both of those cases, however, Marvel is sticking closely to white male leads. (Admittedly, the lead role in Doctor Strange is not cast, and it’s not impossible that Marvel will choose to break with tradition and cast a non-white male as its Sorcerer Supreme — but, given some of the actors rumored to have been considered for the role, that doesn’t look likely.)
Of course, there’s still an obvious opportunity for Marvel to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat on the subject of diversity in casting. Both Wonder Woman and Sony’s mystery Spider-Man project are scheduled (in the latter case, rumored) for 2017 release, and Marvel has an unnamed project scheduled for release May 5 of that year — almost two months before the June 23 bow for Wonder Woman. What if it snuck in a female-led movie just under the wire in order to be “first”?
Similarly, Aquaman isn’t due until July 2018, and there are three unknown Marvel projects scheduled before then. Black Panther, Falcon or even an upgrade from Netflix to theaters for Luke Cage could help Marvel become the first studio to put a superhero of color on the big screen since 2008’s Hancock — if it wanted to.
That, ultimately, is what this comes down to: what Marvel wants to do. As arguably the most successful movie studio around these days, and one that has demonstrated no problem in convincing mainstream audiences to accept a dancing tree and a talking raccoon as heroes, it’s not a question of whether Marvel could make a movie with a woman or person of color in the lead role, or even could make such a movie a hit. It’s a question of whether that’s something that the studio is interested in doing. Whenever Marvel announces its next projects — something which may be sooner than later, given this week’s Warner Bros. schedule announcement — we’ll get the answer to that question.
