If there’s a more adorable form of time-waster than chibi makers, I haven’t found it yet.
WHO WROTE WHAT BIT?
Ah. Another tricky one. As the official Keeper of the One True Copy, Terry physically wrote more of Draft 1 than Neil. But if 2,000 words are written down after a lot of excited shouting, it’s a moot point whose words they are. And, in any case, as a matter of honor both of them rewrote and footnoted the other guy’s stuff, and both can write passably in the other guy’s style. The Agnes Nutter scenes and the kids mostly originated with Terry, the Four Horsemen and anything with maggots started with Neil. Neil had the most influence on the opening, Terry on the ending. Apart from that, they just shouted excitedly a lot.
The point they both realised the text had wandered into its own world was in the basement of the old Gollancz books, where they’d got together to proofread the final copy, and Neil congratulated Terry on a line that Terry knew he hadn’t written, and Neil was certain that he hadn’t written either. They both privately suspect that at some point the book had started to generate text on its own, but neither of them will actually admit this publicly for fear of being thought odd.

Guys you don’t understand how awesome this is. This pattern happens everywhere. It happens on flowers and pinecones absolutely vegetables, it happens all around you. If you don’t think that’s like the realist shit ever i don’t understand you.It’s insane how the universe is literally full of beauty to the point that we can’t even see some of it. Beautiful down to the way it moves.
this is so cool
So what you’re basically saying is the Universe is God’s Spirograph
i hope those pictures of misha and tahmoh on the playground are not only them messing around,
but also cas and gadreel having an important meeting like
CURSES WE ARE DEFEATED
Excellent question, Meta-ass! It might be because you couldn’t resist having one more toy to play with, but I think there’s another explanation. Let’s take a moment to look at the evidence.
Hmm… so Castiel gets resurrected under mysterious circumstances and defies a “superior” Angel. Interesting. What else have we got?
Well, maybe, but I think there’s a bit more…
Ah. New and improved, yes, that would be the kicker. So, in conclusion…
Gabriel? The archangel?
ah yes because the Winchesters and Castiel are notorious for “playing their parts” in heaven’s little stories
I was thinking about that scene with Gadreel and Metatron at the end of “Meta Fiction,” and this expression of Gadreel’s in particular, which was in response to Metatron’s remark about people playing their parts:
and about this exchange at the beginning of that…
Can we also laugh at the fact that Gadreel has already opened a door he was guarding in the past? Because he thought it was the right thing? Metatron really is a dumbass to let this guy guard his door…
9x18 / 9x06
This is important.
"Find a wife. Makes babies. And when you die and your soul comes to Heaven, find me. Tell me your story."
Castiel has already screwed up Metatron’s original plan. Metatron’s original story involved Cas staying away from the Winchesters, falling in love with a woman, starting a family, having a normal life.
This gif set is focusing on the wrong story. This is an example of what Metatron wanted to happen.
Metatron needed Cas to stay human, to stay away from Heaven, to stay away from the Winchesters.
Cas screwed that up when he chose to steal an angel’s grace in order to help the angels and to help Dean. It always comes back to Cas choosing Dean.
Metatron needed Cas to stay away from Heaven and to stay away from them, because something about Cas in Heaven and being close to Dean is going to unravel the ending of his story.
Cas has a key to the lock on not only Heaven’s gates, but to the power within. I think Dean is the key.
This comes pretty close to my crack theory about Dean’s blood being the key to reversing Metatron’s spell and opening the way back to Heaven :p
V. interesting though - I wonder IF Metatron IS working hard to keep Dean and Cas apart because there is something specific about them being together that risks destroying his plan…
I’m content simply to believe Metatron really did/does just LIKE Cas and wanted him to have a ‘happy ever after’ story like he said… But it might be cool if there WAS more to it… (although could just be Metatron recognises Dean and Cas make a good team and thus them working together is a threat - what with their team-up history involving taking down Michael and Lucifer and head of the leviathan and all).
I doubt Chuck got as far as writing Crowley’s tirade about ‘those denim-clad nightmares’ and how everyone else underestimated them, but it’s possible that Metatron got an inkling from reading the rest of the stories that these guys as a group can be really really fucking dangerous and was hoping to head off any problems they might cause him by separating, not only Cas and Dean, but also Sam and Dean by way of Gadreel. But of course that part didn’t work either.
I wonder whether he’s really as confident as he appears to be that they can’t do anything to stop him now…
