Much nose-wrinkling when news channels go, “WHAT HAPPENED, [CITY]?” when there’s low turn-out during voting day (lookin’ at you, Arnab). My family went to vote yesterday, but my mum’s name was not on the voter-list at the polling booth, so despite her brandishing her voter ID, she was not allowed to vote. She came away both furious and disappointed. This happened to quite a lot of my friends, too. Do not disregard these kinds of clerical errors, is what I’m saying. There were quite a lot of them this year.



Aw Sam winked at Jody.  Thank goodness for gif making fans!

Anonymous asked: As a Destiel shipper, Dean seriously does not need rescuing from the toxic nature of the Sam+Dean relationship, he needs rescuing from himself. Dean's sick. Castiel, at worst, would even give him just a replacement to latch onto IF Sam could cut himself free alone. When Zachariah said they're sexually codependent, he wasn't lying. As long as the relationship remains the way it is, neither can have anyone else, and it's Dean who's the rope around their necks.

… Destiel!anon to add; and it’s not up to anyone but Dean himself to save himself. There’s no magical romance that could sweep a damage that profound from a person’s mind. They have to do it themselves. Having someone helps, but they can never do the work.
Yep. And I feel like Castiel is in an even less of a position to “help” Dean understand anything; Sam at least was able to articulate what he saw as the problem, but all Dean heard was “I don’t love you like you love me.” Castiel does not have the resources or perspective (as of yet) to articulate something like that, hence his Dean-apologist speeches in both Road Trip and First Born. Coddling Dean and excusing his choices is not helping him.

Hi, Anon!

7. What’s your opinion on Megstiel?

It’s one of those things that didn’t ever occur to me until Show started making it work… surprisingly well? I mean, they kind of fell into the ‘freedom is beautiful but dangerous’ theme after s5; both of them were lost, rudderless, without a cause; and managed to find each other in a particularly vulnerable time in their long, long lives (kind of like Sam and Amelia, sshh). I mean, this is not to romanticise them, of course, but it’s cute.

12. Who is your favourite angel?

Pre-s9, it would’ve been Castiel, but right now, it’s Gadreel. He’s kind of like a proto-Sam in my opinion, with an intense desire to do good, whatever it takes, but he lacks the resources that Sam has to take responsibility for his actions, and to cope with his trauma. My fondest hope is that Gadreel will one day trick Metatron and escape, but it’s going to be a long, long journey (hell, even Sam hasn’t realised yet that “redemption” and “atonement” is a crock of shit. He still thinks Dean is going to give him those if he continues hunting, but that’s never going to happen, clearly.)

21. What’s your opinion on Destiel?

It’s not a ship I’m interested in. And it’s not really because Destiel shippers erase Sam and/or make him a cheerleader—it’s your ship, your fic, mate, do whatever you want—but this attitude among them that it’s Dean who needs rescuing from the toxic nature of SamnDean, and that Castiel can somehow “get through to him better” and rescue him. No. Dean treats Castiel just as badly. Sometimes I’d wager even worse, because Castiel holds Dean in such high regard and considers him a model of human behaviour, and Dean abuses that trust and regard by constantly shifting the goalposts of Dean-approved behaviour. 

What I’m saying is, Dean doesn’t need a new relationship to change his behaviour. He needs to bloody change himself.

(I’m not excluding Destiel from Dean’s future. He may have declared himself straight, but, mate: people are allowed to change their opinions about themselves, however late in life that change may come.)

41. Do you prefer cake or pie?

There’s this bakery down my street that makes the most delicious apple pies. I’ve tried pies everywhere else, and they taste awful. It’s just this bakery, this pie. I wonder what’s their secret.

in one of those ‘ugh fuck i can’t write for shit' moods

insideshewantsrevenge replied to your post“is anybody else slightly, well, put-off by “dark!dean is so sexy!” and…”
yep, same for me tbh.I guess it’s cause dark!sam oozes this stupidly hot sense of self-confidence and his eyes burn bright whereas dean’s eyes look like the eyes of a dead man and possesses the body posture of a mercenary-it’s not hot it’s horrifying
That would be exactly it. Evil!Dean is stripping away everything that makes him even remotely tolerable, leaving only this undead self. It’s disconcerting.
nawaazish replied to your post“is anybody else slightly, well, put-off by “dark!dean is so sexy!” and…”
i’m the reverse, i feel sick at the the thought of evil!sam (maybe because it’s the antithesis of who he wants to be), but i can tolerate evil!dean.
Yeah, I mean, “evil!Sam” usually constitutes a lot of smirking and… a kind of body language that I find attractive, particularly on a guy who looks like Sam. It’s shallow and base and I’m not particularly proud of it. I was wondering if perhaps that was the reasoning behind the several posts about finding killer-Dean sexy, but it’s still? disturbing?

is anybody else slightly, well, put-off by “dark!dean is so sexy!” and “his face when he kills makes me melt!”

i mean. i’ve said before that i find evil!sam hot? but. man. crazy serial killer dean is terrifying, not attractive.
