do adults actually have feelings or do they just talk about economy
Adults have very strong feelings about the economy. These days it’s mostly terror.
This is our family. It’s a little broken but we stick together thorough it all.
Supernatural the Musical Episode:
With songs such as:
- So Get This - ft. Sam Winchester
- Sonofabitch - ft. Dean Winchester
- Goddammit I Think I Fucked Shit Up Again - ft. Castiel
- The Woman’s Lament - ft. Female ensemble
- Dude, No Homo - A Dean and Castiel Duet
- Oh God this Sexual Tension is Killing Me - ft. Sam Winchester

- Still in Hell - ft. Adam Milligan
someone told me once that shooting stars are really just angels throwing away their cigarettes before God could catch them smoking
I’m not even surprised any more.
i’m pretty sure if like 10 supernatural fans got together and rewrote seasons 8 and 9 we would have a hell of a good show
Depends on the fans. I mean we might get a great show, or we might get Gabriel popping up out of nowhere wearing the Samulet with Adam in tow and zapping Cas and Dean into an inescapable honeymoon suite and then forcing Sam to let Gabe braid his hair and feed him Skittles while an exact clone duplicate of Dean gives him a blowjob. Meanwhile the mysteriously resurrected Hendrickson shoots Garth for no particular reason and then works on thwarting Crowley’s plan to take over the world in cahoots with the demon Bela Talbot and Gordon Walker who’s somehow escaped Purgatory, with help from the Impala which has been transformed into Gina Torres, and Andy, who it turns out cleverly faked his own death. Charlie comes back from Oz to recruit all the fallen angels into her LARP and Kevin reconstitutes his own body by the power of sheer Advanced Placement Pissed-Off-At-Everything-Ness, and Chuck finally shows up to apologize to everyone for being a fucked-up drunk absentee God and brings back everybody else and they all live happily ever after in the Bunker. Except Garth.
imagine someone offering to make a romantic dinner for you and when you get to their place it’s immaculately clean and there are candles and flowers on the table and everything is beautifully ambient
and then they emerge from the kitchen holding two lunchables
you know you’ve been on tumblr too long when you thought this would end in a satanic ritual or cannibalism
Okay, but let’s have some details here. Ham and cheese Lunchables with a mini Twix? Or turkey, maybe? Because if it was pizza or taco or some shit like that, forget it, I’m outta there.
Issue 1: How unsubtle it was. This did bother me too, honestly but I’m more or less okay with the unsubtly because of the message that was hammered home. The writers might be all coy on twitter about their intentions for Sam and Dean’s changing relationship but this episode made it clear to anyone who still doubted what they were planning to do. They turned to the audience and said “yes, Sam and Dean’s relationship is toxic and we are going to change it because it needs to be changed, we’re not kidding.” They’re not going to keep the status quo going “for the sake of the fans,” as Ed said. And hey, if that’s what it takes for Sam and Dean to develop and finally change, I’m okay with it. Dean’s character especially has been stagnate for far too long. And speaking of Dean…
Issue 2: Holy crap, Dean straight up killed that guy! I would be upset at the show if the show itself, with Sam, didn’t address it. Sam basically said, Dean you didn’t need to kill that guy. We’re not supposed to think that Dean was justified in killing that guy, because he wasn’t and show knows it. I don’t think its a leap to think that this is because of the Mark of Cain or maybe it’s just one of the stepping stones on Dean’s journey to becoming Cain. Dean’s journey this season has been to a monster of his own making. I like to think that its no accident that all the characters, as far as I can remember, that he’s been paralleled to this season have been literal monsters or the ones who made them, like Ed did. Maybe I’m wrong, but I think a lot of people are missing the point in this case.
Issue 3: Where’s Castiel?! This is getting a little broken recordy. Cas can’t be with Dean and Sam right now because I think Dean would never get to the dark place with him around. It’s like a reverse of season 6, I think.
I think my issue with #1 isn’t that it wasn’t subtle, it’s the it was extremely forced. The dialogue did not sound right for Ed and Harry. It felt like they took a piece of dialogue from an episode or two ago with Sam and Dean and switched the names. I felt second hand embarrassment at, “I did it for us.” But I agree, not as big of a deal to me as it is to some.
Issue 2- I agree completely. But then, I also think he was somewhat justified. Just because the guy’s DNA was human doesn’t mean he wasn’t a monster. I think you are right though, they show didn’t intend for us to be okay with it, and that it will likely tie to the mark of Cain.
Issue 3 isn’t about Castiel not being in the episode. It’s that he’s not remotely mentioned. At all. Even when they have loose ends that tie directly into Castiel’s plot. Not even a, “Spoke with Cas, let him know about the souls locked out of heaven, he says he’s on it, will call when he has something.” Can’t talk to Cas? That vital to separate them? Then mention that. “Cas ain’t answering again, hope he didn’t get into something…” In season 8, a TV critic put it in terms of Castiel feeling “present.” Season 7, he wasn’t. Season 8, even the episodes he wasn’t in, he was “present” in a sense. Now, he might as well be in a completely different show.
But at least it’s not just Castiel. The boys have not really discussed many things lately. Even Kevin explaining that souls can’t get to heaven seemed to just sort of ping off of them. Castiel who? Angels what? Souls what? Heaven what? Gadreel, who’s that? Mark of… something, IDK, it was biblical. Mark of Moses, maybe? You can write MOTW episodes without it feeling like two different shows.
And I agree, it is a little broken recordy. But it ain’t our fault.
With regard to Ed and Harry’s dialogue, it did seem a little unsubtle to me and did very clearly parallel Sam and Dean, but I’m not sure I’d call it forced.
These guys have been out there together a long time now, doing their own silly, superficial, but very important to them, version of what Sam and Dean do: saving people, hunting things, the family business. They’ve gained the cobbled-together family to prove it and then lost them again. I don’t find anything unbelievable in the notion that they’ve become brothers to each other, or that one of them would eventually outpace the other in terms of growing up and looking beyond their youthful preoccupation, decide it’s okay to leave it behind and look for something different, just like Sam has with Dean.
To me the big underlying theme this season has been exactly that: growing up. How different people do it at different paces, and the conflicts this creates. Sam and Dean, Cas and Bartholemew, Ed and Harry, Cain and Abaddon, the werewolf pastor and his wife. When one person leaves behind old familiar ways for something better—or at least different—and someone close to them can’t or won’t follow suit and tries to hold them back (or hold back the whole world,) it hurts. Sometimes it’s tragic. Ed and Harry may be a couple of goofballs, but they’re no more immune to that kind of conflict and pain than anybody else.
I was actually kind of glad to see them acting like real people this ep and not pathetic caricatures, even if the writers did lay it on a bit thick. Apart from making them (for me) easier to sympathize with, it wouldn’t be very believable to have them still immersed in the same impenetrable bubble of geekdom eight seasons on.
I’m actually really sad today though guys
because even though Ed and Harry both lived
we still lost the Ghostfacers :(

Pay attention my children, Dean just killed a man. An actual man. And he did it slowly. The way that scene was shot just gives me the feeling that this is very significant who Dean is becoming. Sure Dean has killed many times before… but this FELT different.
I noticed this too, it seemed very deliberate and cold-blooded. I think maybe Sam noticed too, and his “They were just…people” at the end may have been more than just expressing surprise at the fact that humans were responsible for the killings.
Who’d have thought a Ghostfacers ep would turn out to be a tearjerker?
#there aren’t a lot of heroes or villains that we’ve seen fight enough times to understand their styles and moves#besides dean sam and castiel#but castiel#he will do literally anything#his fighting style is basically unpredictable and entirely no holds barred#he will fight with anything he has on hand and anything in the room#powered or powerless or leaking grace from his gut#he will fight until there’s nothing fucking left#and then he will scrape that together and fight with that#every villain that gets in a room with him ought to be fucking terrified (via robotmango)
well if you think about it, Castiel started off as just some random soldier, but he got the craziest on-the-job training anyone could conceive. He fought his way into hell and stood up to the devil and fought back to back with humans and demons and monsters and got turned human and thrown into purgatory and stood in for the goddamn lord. He’s probably seen just about every kind of fucked up fight possible and had to fight for his life against three separate archangels that wanted him fucking dead. Castiel’s gotta be like the most James Bond MacGuyver motherfucking angel in history.
