a peaceful walk in the woods really relaxes me. the fact that I’m dragging a body should be irrelevant.
John Scalzi gets it.
So I really love how the intro to Pacific Rim is, like, 90% plausible/whatever for the first two minutes. Massive tragedy in San Francisco, media and cultural response, blah blah blah
Then, completely straight-up, “So that’s when we decided to make giant robots.”
ONE OF MY FAVORITE THINGS IN SUPERNATURAL
IS WHEN THEY SHOW DEAN AND CAS SHARING THESE AWKWARD “WHAT THE HELL’S GOING ON BETWEEN US” MOMENTS
AND THEN THEY CUT TO SAM
it’s pretty telling that sam has a standard facial expression for “you two idiots seriously still don’t even realize how in love you are”
(Sam’s life really sucks.)
@marvel Flattery will get you nowhere! Probably. Maybe. *looks the other way*
9x15 “Thinman” / 9x18 “Meta Fiction” / 9x19 “Alex Annie Alexis Ann”
In the last few episodes we saw Dean turning a weapon towards himself three times. I am starting to think this is a pattern they are using consciously. Especially because every time the kill happens with a blade. I talked about this a couple of times in this and this post for example. But all of these instances truly make me much more certain that Dean stabbing himself with the first blade (maybe because Abbadon possesses him or maybe because he thinks it’s the only way to keep his loved ones save from himself) is a possibility to how the season might end.
Great catch. He is taking himself to the edge, pushing the act of the kill into the most satisfying violent way , to see what brings him most pleasure, he doesn’t care that the blade is pointing toward him, he doesn’t care if he’ll die, more than that- he craves the near-death feeling, he experience death.
it’s getting darker and darker. when at ‘Thinman’ killing when the ‘victim’ body is pressed to him, feeling the life goes out, kind of killing both of them, he is experiencing death through the body.
In ‘Alex Annie’ that’s not enough for him, he is standing there, but he wants to feel more, he wants the ‘victim’ to look him in the eyes, and then kills him, slowly, deliberately, yet again, when the ‘pointy end’ is toward himself. He is experiencing death through the eyes, the soul.
He is looking for the satisfaction in death through his ‘victims’, the pleasure in oblivion.
Also, he had knives held to his own throat in both “Captives” and in “#THINMAN”, and was remarkably blasé about it - some people thought that in “Captives” he almost leaned into the knife a little. Does he suspect - or know? - that immortality is part of the Mark of Cain’s cost? So that however much he craves his own death, he knows the only way he’ll ever experience it is vicariously?
