#I wish this kind of true moral conviction had stuck with him#this is one of those ‘oh no I love dean winchester’ moments I had early on#and tbh it makes sense for him to be the woke one in this scenario and Sam to be the idiot asshole#he went to college he lived In A Society he got indoctrinated for 4 years#and also never had to Be a Criminal the way dean did growing up like#I bet he fucking thinks cops help people like shit he called the cops on gordon which I will never be okay with lololol#anyways yeah fuck Sam winchester hours I guess#I miss blue collar comrade dean lol some of the writers in the early seasons really grasped the vibe of being rly poor and how that affects#your view of society#not very many and it didn’t come up very often but yeah anyways I can’t go too far down this rabbit hole#bc it leads to that mental ouroboros of ‘there is no wider society in spn’ and yet they operate under its norms and rules#it’s so messy#dean#Sam#meta#magpie dot txt
Sorry I know that’s hard to read.
the actual reason I consume mediocre media is because I have bad taste. the deeper secret pretentious reason is because I think there’s something very revealing about bad media that you don’t get with good media. when you watch a poorly executed plot point unfold, you see the machinery behind it. you see the gap between what’s actually on screen and the true goal the author is striving for. if it’s particularly awful, you can even measure just how poorly mismatched the author’s skills are with the story they’re trying to tell you. watching a poorly executed narrative play out feels like you’re discovering something, because you see all the wiring and guts underneath that better authors hide from you, in the same way that movies hide boom mics and books make you forget you’re turning the pages. if a story is good and executed well you just see the story. but I want to see the guts and wires!
also I like complaining a lot
im sorry but dean “cowboyluvr67” winchester with a big fat childhood crush on paul newman (of cowboy movie fame) and being positively entranced by his weirdly bright blue eyes — so blue, in fact, that directors insisted they shoot in color just to show off his eyes — and then dean meeting cas. wtf did you think was gonna happen u stupid garrison
sometimes I’m like ahahaha really got my supernatural habit under control and then I remember that I started crying 3 hours ago over the concept of dean and cas growing old together and it’s like oh no I have simply normalized that as like a daily occurrence
i can’t decide if what the magicians did was a worse crime than what spn did. i think the magicians might be worse simply because spn at least provided months of metatextual entertainment after viciously burning us.
@damnation2017 this is a good point like. it’s the malicious incompetence of spn vs the competent malice of the magicians
