Oh, know the perils, read the signs,
the warning history shows,
for our Hogwarts is in danger
from external, deadly foes
And we must unite inside her
or we’ll crumble from within
I have told you, I have warned you…
let the Sorting now begin.
I’ve been waiting for this gifset <3 look how great is is that the houses are interacting and not everything is so black-and-white-and-we-all-hate-slytherin. I love it.
SLYTHERINS HOLDING HANDS WITH GRYFFINDORS
HUFFLEPUFFS DANCING WITH SLYTHERINS
RAVENCLAWS DRINKING AND STUDYING WITH GRYFFINDORS AND HUFFPUFFS
Ok, right off the bat, I’m gonna tell all the Sam haters to get the fuck out of line, because Sam finally addressed an issue that has been plaguing the brothers for years. I am so goddamn proud of him I could cry.
Look, I adore Dean, I wouldn’t be RPing him if I didn’t, but we all know that his dependency and obsessive love for Sam is not healthy. He puts his need for Sam above the greater good, above Sam’s own rights as a human being to make choices about his life, and he completely turns a blind eye to how it directly affects Sam’s emotional and psychological well being.
Sam, on the other hand, has grown and matured in how he sees his life and how he sees his relationship with his brother, which is why no, he wouldn’t violate Dean’s trust and his brother’s right to consent and his free will in regards to his own life and his body. Sam respects and loves Dean enough that he would let him go, even though the loss would hurt like fuck. It has hurt like fuck, look at every aspect of his “year off” with Amelia; they were both messes because of grief and loss in their lives, and were trying to cope together to find ways to get past it. Whether we liked Amelia as a character or not is a moot point.
SO YES, HURRAH FOR THE LAST SCENE. I know this is going to hurt Dean, and I know this will drive that wedge between them a little deeper right now, but it was something he needed to hear and if he’s got any brain cells rattling around in that stubborn head of his, he’ll take this and allow it to shape a better relationship with Sam in the future.
OK, ENOUGH ANGST.
Overall, I was surprised to find that I actually kind of liked this episode. I was expecting gym jokes and silliness, but was pleasantly surprised to find a more serious episode with an interesting, obscure monster that also happened to have morals! (Well, she did, anyway, you know what I mean.)
Dean’s scenes with the roofies pudding were really great, actually, for a couple of reasons. Dean drugged tends to be pretty cute, I’m not gonna lie, so there was that. But I also really liked what it said about Dean that he knew what roofies looked like. Not to mention the line about waking up in a bathtub missing a kidney. Pretty great dialogue right there.
And Sam in yoga wear. And Sam’s sassy line about how he learned yoga! Oh my god, he was in rare form this episode, I was so in love.
This episode raises some questions for me, though. Have we seen Dean sleep since he got the Mark of Cain? Could this be some weird side-affect? AND WHERE THE HELL IS CASTIEL?!
OH MY GOSH, THE LADY COP. I almost forgot her! Wasn’t she the cutest part of this episode, oh my gosh.
Overall, not a bad episode to start the Olympic hiatus.
Self-reblogging because damn, that episode.
My brain: Running is good! Working out is good! You’ll be svelte in no time!
My body: WTF ARE YOU DOING, DUDE.
In response to CookieCott, which is a lame idea and a shitty portmanteau.
Support Girl Scouts. Feel good about eating hella cookies.
I just sent this to my mom, along with:
“Do we know any girl scouts? I really want to buy a bunch of cookies because there are people boycotting them. Fuck those boycotters, gimme cookies.”
HOW THO? GS COOKIES ARE THE SHIIIIIIT
buy the fuck out of girl scout cookies now
Here’s the dumb thing about that. The cookie monies raised from the sales goes into day trips, educational seminars, uniforms, badges, prizes, paying for the troops’ meeting areas upkeep, and snacks for the troop?
Did you know that some scout leaders actually get their troops sex education when the schools provide exactly nothing the kids will be able to effectively use later on? My scout troop had a one month obligation with a hospital, where we went in on a saturday, and trained health administrators would talk to us about puberty, what happened to xx bodies, what happened to xy bodies, how to handle periods, tampons, peer pressure, condoms, saying ‘no’, and even the effects of saying ‘yes’ and what to expect when you’re expecting on through to options you had if you found out you were pregnant and didn’t want it.
Did you know that while all of us kids in the troop were growing up in shit houses, the troop leaders made sure we all made enough, and got sponsors if we needed them, to go to summer camp?
You can boycott the girlscouts, but I’d give my last dime to them.
Jokes on you.
The troop in my area’s going to have a good year.
