Well then, I’m finally beginning my long overdue semi-marathon of SPN Season 8. I had to restart with ep 1 again since it’s been several months. Currently at ep 2, but I just wanted to stop by and go, “HAH”
Because my old theory ended up not being a theory anymore. That Cas left Dean to protect him.
Okay, that is all. I shall now continue.
“what i really don’t understand is…why to some people, not supporting LGBT means we are an asshole, disgusting and doesn’t deserve to live in this world?? talk about having the freedom to choose huh? YES we chose not to support LGBT so suck it up! don’t go around calling people disgusting..respect others as well even though we have different ideology…we don’t go around calling gay people disgusting so why should you call us NON-LGBT supporters disgusting??”
You just walk around saying your relative/friend made the wrong choice and is now unacceptable. It still means you’re an asshole. If you can’t respect LGBT, then what makes you respectable? Being straight? Please.
Among the things that bother me about shippers is when they say, “I like shipping this guy and that guy, but I am against homosexual relationship. I will never accept it in real life. It’s only fine in fiction but for real, it’s just wrong.”
Because really. So the existence of homosexual and homosexual relationships are just good enough to be fictional but “so wrong” when it’s real, right? Because real people are wrong to be homosexuals. And it’s also wrong to be in that sort of relationship, apparently.
This whole thing angers me and I’m bordering on incoherent that I can’t even rant about this properly.
Humanity in fandom failing
I thought Supernatural fans were bad enough for the level of seriousness in their shipping of Jensen and Jared even if those two have wives and children… and believing they’re sincerely in love, while the wives are just posers and beards.
Arashi’s obsessed shippers are WORSE.
The worst part, I already don’t follow any of those blogs (primarily because I do not want to interact with that fandom and don’t have the time either) and only watch the general tag. But all the stupid are there.
According to my friend, KPOP shipping is even worst.
As you can see
This blog has ceased functioning as mostly Supernatural or mostly Castiel. I have become a casual fan, i.e. someone with good (and very bad) memories of the show but not inclined to follow it religiously anymore. I’m not too sure the old love can be rekindled.
I’d be worried if the deep sea creatures start swimming closer to the surface en masse imho
Cthulhu’s waking up
Since there’s an ongoing trend of turning children’s stories into something “dark” and “grunge” or what have you lately (just look at Hansel and Gretel), I now demand a Peter Pan. A Peter Pan story where Peter is the leader of a ragtag group of misfits plowing through the streets of whatever futuristic cityscape being chased by (and equally chasing) a corrupt captain/chief of police named Captain Hook.
Yeah, I want that.
Judging from some reactions, I take it the season took another dive regarding Castiel.
And yes, I haven’t watched anything past ep 2. I don’t think I should until this season’s over just to spare me the rage. Being away is certainly proving to be a good thing.
… conclude that any show or fandom I’ve seen on tumblr has a butthurt fan who thinks the show is personally insulting something and somebody’s sensibilities.
Technically, Cas leading the revolution (reluctantly) makes him a de facto general, doesn’t it?
After all this time, I would think the angel from S4 would’ve evolved by now in terms of power. He’s not the same footsoldier even if the power upgrade isn’t as drastic as angel-to-archangel. I could talk all day about what I think of power and evolution. So I’ll just go with the theory of evolution in the sense that necessity forced the change (upgrade) in him. Fighting all day and everyday should’ve raised his level for combat. Running (and outrunning) angels during the manhunt in S5 should have made him faster, etc etc.
“You must think I’m a monster.”
“No. You just married one.”
Sometime in this season, I’d like a clear definition of “monster”.
There was that post about what if the gate of hell can only be shut from the inside and idk part of me would like to see them going down on that path and then when they realize how many people they killed they choose to die because they know they can't make all this right."
That ending would cause a lot of riot and bitching from the fandom, especially if it’s a permanent death.
But yes, someone replied to my post that there is significant growth to Dean’s character, so that’s something to look forward to. I just started on ep3 but had to stop since I was watching it in the middle of a roadtrip XD So far, from what I’ve seen, the writers are on track with shoving it in our faces how Dean’s (new/not so new) gungho attitude towards hunting came with a backlash of not really giving a fuck about much else. And all his flashbacks kept digging a nail to that accusation.
At the same time, am I the only one who thinks the flashbacks are rather off-putting? Then again, I was never fond of the flashback trick in the first place. It takes some kind of skill to pull that off that won’t make me frown. I just find it awkward that we have to zoom in on Dean’s face while he stares at a distance then bam, flashback. No smooth transition at all.
Finished the ep. Not a bad episode, considering my impression on what I see as problematic was apparently what the episode was highlighting. In this regard, the episode was very clear in its stance.
Four things I’d like to highlight:
1. The sacrifice was the most valuable thing the mother has.
2. One stranger’s soul is apparently getting off cheap, according to Dean.
3. The Winchester profile and reputation now includes leaving a trail of dead people, after using them.
4. What’s one more nightmare.
The last one makes me twitch more than the first three. 1 and 2 go together, in that knowing her soul is priceless to a pagan god for the sacrifice, it’s cheap enough if it meant “saving the world” from demons by shutting the hell gate. 3 is just fact these days.
But 4, life sucks for Dean. It’s one more nightmare and reason to hate himself with. But, you know, for once I’d like some solid smack that says “it’s not about you”.
While I still think the episode wasn’t all that bad, and it seems like there is actually SOME direction this season intends to follow through, I think I’ll watch SPN in huge chunks rather than every week. Judging from my reaction today, I’m on track to getting pissed off. So I’ll just wait for the episode that has Dean’s epiphany, and Winchester saving grace.
I mostly spoke about Dean because I don’t have episode one with me and can’t tell yet whether I’ll throw Sam into the fire too.
And it’s nice to know some angels care about Cas.
So, I (finally) saw the first few minutes of SPN ep2 and the very first thing that bothers me is killing people. And then, when the voice of reason FINALLY questioned these actions (“do you really have to kill her?”) after how many years (since S4 I believe), there’s not even one iota of regret or apology for it.
Am I supposed to believe that the harsh life has turned them into jaded fools of a hero? Yes, I suppose it could happen. More like it DID happen. So let’s just make one thing clear now, this is no longer about saving people. This is strictly about hunting things and bulldozing the way through it. Saving “our” asses along the way. But since the “our” there is pretty vague, and we all know how little these men value their own lives, I question even whose ass is being saved. Certainly not the self. The “brother” maybe.
And by brother, I like to think it’s not limited to blood after all this time.
I’m not quite sure what to feel about this. There’s certainly a huge amount of disappointment and then pity. I know they’re flawed characters and that’s what makes their plight endearing and worth supporting. They try their best but shit happens, but in the end things tend to work out with victories hard fought and hard won. Unfortunately, I can’t find myself cheering for people who clearly show that this self-imposed job is bullshit, and therefore fuck whoever gets in the way. Innocent or otherwise. Everybody is now collateral damage.
IT TOOK FOUR YEARS
No. I’m not yet done watching. I cheated and skipped right to the scene and glanced at it, then stopped because I still have to watch ep 1.
Ok. See you lot sometime.
