all i can think of now is Claire and Krissy meeting sometime in future canon because at the end of Claire’s ep Dean, Cas, and Sam drop her off at their makeshift home for hunter orphans and she meets Josephine too and they all become FRIENDS who maybe sometimes KISS
another gorgeous commission from linneart
This is also from the Young Volcanoes series, but it’s a scene that hasn’t been written yet. I had to share it anyway, I love it so much! Artist!Dean and demipunk!Cas, and finally a basically perfect visual of not just Dean’s basement bedroom, but the artistic style he’s developing within the story (that rainbow portrait of Mary on the wall!). Ugh I just love it, all the details are perfect.
(Plus, this is a promise for those of you who have been kind and patient enough to read the story even though it’s still a WIP: it’ll be worth it. This moment isn’t very far away!)
my problem is that i like boys in theory but not in practice so if i see a cute boy i’m like “damn i would” but when faced with actually dating one i’m just like “nah”

MAYBE THEY ARE TRYING FOR ANOTHER BACKDOOR SPINOFF AND IT’LL BE ABOUT CLAIRE
Actually, this seems really plausible to me. Between the news of a Sheriffs Jody and Donna episode (which has already been compared to “The Heat” i.e. an incredibly successful film which is just ripe for ripping off on the small-screen) and the news about Claire (which, considering the incredibly long time since we last saw the character, felt a little surprising, and certainly leads credence to the idea that they may be testing the audience’s interest and response to such a story).
Look, we all know that TPTB won’t want to let go of the cash cow that SPN is, but the last attempt was a complete failure. A spin-off starring Donna and Jody or Claire would be listening to some of the audience feedback following “Bloodlines,” which criticized the lack of interesting female characters and recycled tropes. But, mostly importantly, either possibility would be similar to previously successful media products. As pointed out earlier, Donna and Jody would be similar to “The Heat” while Claire’s story could tap into a similar space that “Teen Wolf” (very successfully) occupies.
There were a lot of commentary that “Bloodlines” felt like a very generic CW show with a SPN plotline imposed upon it. If there was one thing that “Bloodlines” proved, it’s that CW’s executives are risk-adverse. A pilot based on Claire stays in familiar and successful territory, as does one based on Jody and Donna.
Look, I’m probably going to be totally wrong, but I can’t help but be think that there is a serious possibility that we could be looking at a spin-off we don’t all hate.
Petition for a scene in spn where a cupid touches Dean and Cas and nothing happens and everyone is confused for a moment and then the cupid’s like “oh you two must already be in love” and Dean blushes so hard a few of his freckles sizzle off and Sam’s like “yeah obviously.”
This perfectly summarizes why I love the Simpsons and hate Family Guy.
I watched that episode with my family and I could just feel how uncomfortable everyone was. Honestly, it was a really jarring, unpleasant episode.
Homer is a terrible dad. So is Peter. But Homer’s saving grace has always been that he tries—he’s bad at it and he fucks it up a lot, but he loves his family and he wants to be better than he is.
One of my favorite Homer moments is in “Diatribe of a Mad Housewife.” Tl;dr Marge writes a steamy romance novel starring herself and Ned, and when Homer finds out, he chases down Ned and, rather than attack him, asks him to teach him how to be a better husband.
There’s some part of his stupid self that wants to do better.
I never got that impression with Peter. Instead, the family has gotten more and more abusive towards Meg. It’s really unsettling for me when I started realizing that’s what happens sometimes in abusive families. Abusers sometimes single out one child to abuse, and quite often the other family members take the abuser’s side. After all, it’s easier to side with an abuser than to run the risk of becoming the target yourself.
There’s never really a point where it seems like Peter cares at all that his shitty behavior impacts his family. It actually seems to have gotten worse over the years. He expects everyone to clean up his messes because that’s always what happens; there’s really no reason for him not to be shitty.
And it’s easy to see how Meg is affected. She doesn’t have much of a character, really, because so much her screen time is devoted to being abused. The bits of character development all seem to hinge on her being this sad, neglected person who’s trying her best but never really gets any help from anyone. Quite the opposite; there have been a lot of episodes where her family sabotages any attempts to be herself.
It can be easy to forget how awful this behavior is when the only context is the show itself (frankly, everyone on Family Guy is kind of terrible). Seeing it played against the Simpsons, who are a flawed and dysfunctional but ultimately loving family, was painful to watch.
This perfectly sums up why I don’t like Family Guy.
This. ALL of this.
