you spend so much time trying to make yourself more palatable that in the end you taste bland. forgettable

i think the supernatural writers should have put their whole pussy into it and left john in hell where he could eventually become a demon and possess dean. do the cycle of abuse allegory you bastards
still thinking about this and how it should be late seasons when mary is there for maximum horribleness. i just think mary should get to stab john in dean’s body with the demon knife <3
“Mary,” the thing that used to be her husband says from the body of her son, arms held out at his sides gently. “Come on, baby. It’s me.”
“Don’t you call me that,” Mary whispers, keeping her feet planted firmly on the Bunker’s floor. “Not from where you’re standing. Not in that vessel.”
John clucks his tongue. “I just want a nice reunion, sweetheart.”
“Right, Sam. Our little demon spawn.” He waves a hand. “He’s back there somewhere. Knocked his head into the wall pretty good.”
John snorts. “Cas. Dean’s got a whole mess of complicated feelings about him, so just… had to knock him around a little bit. Not sure that he’s alive, to be honest with you.”
The parallels of Cas's leviathan babies he gave birth to who tried to kill him and all compared to Dean's baby in the slice girls who tried to kill him. That's all.
Someone on my FB TL just posted about how scared she was when she saw someone having a seizure in public, so I pulled out my “I have had a seizure” card for educational purposes. Also this diagram helps:
This is so important! My youngest brother has epilepsy, and this kind of info is crucial for people around him to know.
I would add, once they are awake and alert and able to sit up, water and a bit of food are super helpful, as their body has just been through an incredibly intense experience and they may be a bit dehydrated and blood sugar may be low.
Only call 911 in the scenarios listed. My brother prefers not to have an ambulance called, as it’s SUPER expensive and he’ll have to pay that off later, and they really don’t do anything for him other than give him fluids and food for recovery.
Also, once they’re able to communicate, check in with them about any injuries, if they fell. This is the time to determine if they may need to be evaluated for a concussion (which can be a trip to urgent care, rather than an ambulance ride).
They will not be able to drive at this point, so help with transportation, calling a family member or friend, etc. is helpful.
had a horrible thought: what if, instead of burning zuko himself, ozai had azula do it?
the reason supernatural is so fucked up is that it has a star trek style freudian trio but the final arbiter is not the ego character (sam), it’s the superego character (dean)
my bloody valentine was just ben edlund being like “you see these three guys? they’re a freudian trio”
is that no teacher ever called him James by accident, or that Ron never was called “Bill-, eh Charl-, no Per-, argh!”
As a younger sister who knows this struggle all too well: THIS IS REAL. Pretty sure 70% of my past teachers still think I’m called what my sister is called in fact.
Imagine Fred being called Percy by McGonagall accidentally and then he gets so offended that he refers to her by “Professor [insert any other name but McGonagall” for the rest of the year, costing Gryffindor a considerable amount of points one at a time.
From then on, she vows to just call them all Mr Weasley.
Until Ginny comes along and she calls her Mr Weasley by accident and Ginny “accidentally’ calls her Sir and it starts again.
It’s lightly off-topic but also slightly relevant but I have long cherished this mental image of Professor Snape saying something snappish to Harry in just the wrong tone of voice and Harry absentmindedly, wearily, and completely accidentally responding with, “Yes, Aunt Petunia.”
which would have all kinds of additional ramifications when you remember snape is the only one who knew petunia personally
He asks Harry to stay after class and straight up asks him “Am I truly that unpleasant?”
Okay, okay, okay, this is probably deeply off-track, but all I can think of is Harry––who upon learning that Snape, of all people, his pain in the neck potions professor knows his aunt––has now received what can only be called a psychic punch to balls.
How, how, how, is a teenage boy supposed to rectify this, mentally? Connect these strange unjoined worlds to somehow explain that Snape––Snape!––knows his Aunt Petunia?
“It doesn’t make any sense, mate,” Harry tells Ron, blearily, desperately wishing at age thirteen years that his butter beer was a real beer. “It just––it can’t be. Why would he know Aunt Petunia?”
Ron grimaces. “Why would he want to? I mean, I know he’s Snape, and all that, but––”
Harry writes his only letter back to #4 Privet Drive, dotted with tears, and it has one line: How do you know Severus Snape?
Petunia writes back: DO NOT MENTION THAT MAN EVER AGAIN.
And this. This. Sparks a light in Harry’s head. This is the same way Petunia talks about celebrities who have deeply, personally offended her. Usually when she fancied them and then they got married. It’s so completely clear to him, now: Snape is deeply, irrevocably, utterly in love with Aunt Petunia.
PLEASE, FOR THE LOVE OF EVERYTHING, KEEP READING
IT’S THE BEST LAUGH I’VE HAD IN AGES
I don’t know how this went from McGonagall calling Fred Percy
to a Snape who was in love with Aunt Petunia
BUT I LOVE IT

what does it say about us as a culture that most of our microwaves have a dedicated popcorn button
i dont know but whatever it says, its magnified by literally every bag of popcorn saying “don’t use the popcorn button”
Funnily enough, there’s an answer for that.
In brief, the “popcorn” button was initially introduced by fancy high-end microwaves that used an integrated humidity sensor to tell when your popcorn was done; microwaveable popcorn vents steam as it cooks, so by monitoring the amount of steam in the cooking chamber, you can get pretty close to perfectly popped popcorn every time (though it’s generally only pretty close, since different brands of microwaveable popcorn have different moisture content).
As the feature became popular, manufacturers of cheap microwaves started adding a button labelled “popcorn” as well, in order to imply that they offer this feature. These “popcorn” buttons simply run the microwave for a fixed amount of time that the manufacturer figures is close enough to the printed cooking time of most commercial brands.
In practice, of course, the fixed-time “popcorn” button usually just sets your popcorn on fire. To make matters worse, owing to America’s permissive advertising laws, microwave manufacturers are allowed to make all sorts of misleading-but-technically-true statements in their packaging and instruction manuals, rendering it nearly impossible to tell whether a given model of microwave has a real humidity-sensing “popcorn” button or a fake fixed-time “popcorn” button before buying it.
In summary: the “popcorn” button that your microwave popcorn instructs you not to use exists because American microwave manufacturers are using a misleadingly labelled button in order to imply that their product has a feature that it does not in fact have, in a way that can potentially trick people into burning their houses down, for advertising purposes. This is perfectly legal.
So: what does that say about our culture?

Ok, so theres like 14 tugboats working on the Ever Given now and the tide is coming in. They MIGHT be able to refloat her today.
As a hilarious side note, THIS apparently happened on a highway in china this morning, which SEEMS like a joke but is apparently real:
in the spirit realm, an evergreen tree has fallen and blocked the River of Life; the material realm will be forced to echo and reenact this higher reality in various ways until the problem is rectified at the source
dean has always been surrounded by toxic masculinity on all sides and he’s never had the time to think about his gender and sexuality and he knows, objectively even though he’s never dwelled on it, that it wouldn’t be safe for him to do so, so of course in his eyes he’s straight (and of he turns tricks for money then it’s just for the money) and he’s a man (because he’s comfortable in his own skin, he
almostalways is, and why the hell wouldn’t he be). but he’s a vessel and a chameleon. he’s whatever he needs to be for his dad (a good son) and his brother (a good brother, a father, a mother), whatever cover he’s using for a hunt, rhonda hurley’s one night stand who wore pink panties because she asked him to and liked it, the literal vessel for an angel, a pseudo dad for an angry teenage girl that he sees way too much of himself in, he’s a caregiver and a torturer and an attentive lover and a killer and he doesn’t want to die bloody but knows that he will and he has applications for sainthood and my point is, does he know who he is? or does he know what he needs to be for whatever situation he’s in? being himself is a luxury he’s never been allowed (and knew, distantly, that he wasn’t safe) to have. all he’s ever done is survive and he knows what he can and can’t do in order to achieve that and he has to be strong and masculine and so he deepens his voice even though he doesn’t need to and he drives the impala and he wears his father’s jacket until it’s lost and he ditches the rings and he doesn’t swing that way and he’s a man, he’s a man, he’s a man because he has to bejust is, what the hell else would he be? he knows, distantly, what he wants to be. he remembers that night with rhonda hurley, which was something so eye-opening and personal that the only other person he told it to was to himself, to prove his identity. he remembers being told that he has delicate features and not hating it. he keeps his hair short because he thinks something in him will break if it’s long and pretty enough for him or cassomeone else to run his fingers through, and he envies sam for his, and he teases him for it. he goes clothes shopping with charlie, and he likes wearing disguises. he wants to be a cowboy because he wants to be free to do whatever he wants in the wild west and he wants to have a horse to care for and a gun to protect himself with from anyone who tries to bother him, tell him who he can and can’t be.
and he tells sam, in a moment of weakness, “doesn’t every guy want to feel like a woman sometimes?” and knows by the look on sam’s face that he’s made a big mistake.

“I do not need to look out for middle-aged men stalking me on the internet. They need to watch out for me.”
dean is simultaneously buffy and faith but that’s ok because cas is simultaneously angel and spike in this essay i will-
ok ok so spoilers? but dean as buffy: the chosen one, feels a higher calling to help. the best there is but damaged from the experience. died and came back and boy wasn’t that fucked up. feels weird about being alive, particularly if it negates the sacrifice they made. fiercely loyal to loved ones but will lash out when emotionally backed into corner. romantic relationships repeatedly fail because of The Life. this causes resignation and an idea that they are somehow unlovable. immortal vampire boyfriend. feeling of carrying the world on your shoulders. protective of magical little sibling, will and has died for them. death is your gift.
dean as faith: had a rough life and so see themselves as a broken, unloveable monster. touch starved. when showed kindness or a gentle touch reacts like a beaten dog before soothing into the touch. uses sex to patch over a gaping emotional hole inside. figuratively/literally lost their soul and worked for the bad guy for a time, didn’t really like it but it was freeing in a tragic way. puts on a facade of bravado but is just a scared child inside. gets angry when others don’t perform the role they want/need/expect them to.
cas as angel: immortal vampire boyfriend who doesn’t need to eat or sleep, watches their beloved sleep, has super strength that is the clincher in multiple fights. holds old knowledge and great wisdom. if he fulfills his great cosmic destiny he might get to become human and live with the human he loves (though in cas’ case to fulfill his destiny in this way means directly bucking his destiny but. semantics). one true moment of happiness takes it all away. figuratively/literally loses his soul. has a dark side that is capricious, gluttonous, ruinous. is the angel on the protagonist’s shoulder, guiding them to morality, soothing their anger, promising love and loyalty.
cas as spike: starts with ambiguous/bad morality and it takes falling in love with a human to make him want to change. figuratively/literally gains a soul as a result of said love. becomes domesticated. is the devil on the protagonist’s shoulder, tempting them away from normative human relationships. unexpectedly, is often the only one the protagonist can open up to, in part because in many ways he is the only one who really understands them, sees through the facade, comes at them with no judgement.
theres more but this is already long!!

My favorite thing about Raphael must be that they are canonically a Drama Queen™. Why am I going to support the apocalypse? Because I want to and whatever I want I get 😤😤✋. Going to kick my little brother’s ass ? Gonna do it with calm while I dramatically go down the stairs🚶🏿♀️😌💅
Look at this fucking pose
for me, the way i explain the difference between ftbyam raphael and season 6 raphael is:
1. ftbyam raphael genuinely believes god is dead.
2. at the end of season 5, castiel is again brought back from the dead– and this time, raphael can’t attribute castiel’s resurrection to lucifer.
castiel’s resurrection and elevation to seraph is proof that god is still watching over his creations. it’s proof that god watched michael & raphael beg for guidance for millennia, trying their best to follow the plan he left behind, and did nothing. it’s proof that god changed his mind about the apocalypse and didn’t tell the archangels. it’s proof that god is willing to let michael – loyal michael, dutiful michael, who loved god so much he was willing to kill lucifer for him – rot in the cage.
michael is rotting in the cage, and castiel is back from the grave with a new set of wings. castiel’s resurrection isn’t a miracle. it’s a divine middle finger pointed directly at michael and raphael.
when raphael makes their plans to free michael and lucifer and restart the apocalypse, they know it isn’t what god wants anymore. but it’s the ending god asked for all those millennia ago, it’s the ending he asked for every time he silently watched the archangels move one step closer to armageddon, and it’s the ending he’s gonna get.
I think angels have a caste system, but specifically in reference to eusocial insects, like how some ant colonies have specific ants who were born for a single specialized job (workers, soldiers, some ants exist solely to guard their queen, some solely store food, etc) and they instinctively know how to do that job, but they don’t really know how to do anything else. Angels were written with the knowledge of what their main job is; it is instinctual to them. But everything else? If they look outside of that singular purpose? It’s new, it’s unknown, and they have to figure it out, and it’s scary because they are so used to knowing what to do, to following their programming and orders. Angels do have free will, but they are conditioned not to use it.
i read this post & then merged all three of them together in artbreeder and you cannot convince me that these aren’t the same man
THIS IS WHAT I’VE BEEN SAYING! EVEN BEFORE I WATCHED SUPERNATURAL, THE SECOND I WATCHED CAP 2, I WAS LIKE … THESE ACTORS ARE THE SAME!
