heteronormativity is genderbending main characters just to permit non-platonic interactions between the characters.
i’m looking at you, elementary.
that’s really cute how you dismiss the importance of replacing a white male literary icon with a woman of color and ignore how much pride people have in joan to say she only exists to bang someone she hasn’t kissed, come close to kissing, or come close to even wanting to kiss in nearly 2 entire seasons

I thought they had turned Watson a woman because BBC wouldn’t sell the idea or whatever for them to make their version so they sorta adapted it to avoid plagiarism laws or something like that? Correct me if I’m wrong.
Okay, don’t hate me now but I like this new girl, Hannah, as Cas’ second in command or whatever.
I think it’s pretty stupid to think the writers will make her a love interest because oh my god there’s a fucking war and I really don’t think a recently fallen angel will go looking for love or that stuff
though Cas’ ass is totally worth it I’d go for it but yea
If they do try that, I’m not sure I’m gonna like it but let’s see what happens. I want her to stay in the show for longer than usual (aka don’t kill her next episode pls?) and get to see her development. I have nice feelings about her.
And here is where you kill me but part of me likes the idea of Cas’ actual vessel to burn up and Cas taking her host as a new one? Even if that means Misha won’t be in the show anymore
that’s gonna kill me he’s so fucking awesome pls don’t go but do what makes you happy idk. Thing is, I love CAS, not only Misha, and as long as CAS doesn’t die or something, I’ll be happy. Wanna make Cas a woman? Cool, just keep her the same, keep her being Cas.
Though I’m gonna kill someone if they turn him into a female and then make Destiel canon. Destiel is like one of my otps but really, how much of an ass do you have to be to make one of them a girl before? Oh god, no homosexual couples on tv please, let’s make it heterosexual before anything happens. Nothing against het couples, if they love each other who cares about gender, but this is a low blow to homosexual representation, like “you know what? Yea, they’re soulmates but they can’t be gay, let us make them different and then they can be together once they’re hetero, cool?” I’m gonna punch someone.
Okay this turned longer than expected, I just have lots of feelings about this but it’s late and I’m sleepy and whatever, I’m out.
ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME?! YOU SHOWED ME HOPE WITH GABRIEL AND THEN YOU SNATCHED HIM AWAY!! I’M SO FUCKING DONE WITH THIS EPISODE
metatron’s opening is gorgeous he doesn’t deserve it
So, unpopular opinion it is, but I personally want Gabriel to be dead. And certainly not because I don’t like him. Pretty much the opposite, I ADORE the hell outta him. The rebel angel who his brothers and sisters hurt so much everytime they were fighting and killing each other, who frigging loved them so much he just couldn’t stand watching them hurt anymore and decided to leave Heaven… I love his evolution, and I believe death is a very important part of it.
If you take away his death, it’s as of he didn’t sacrifice himself for the Winchesters — what am I saying, for humanity. It was just an easy trick he could have made any other day. And if it was the case, it wouldn’t have cost him anything.
The fact that he died, truly died from Lucifer’s hand is a risk Gabriel decided to take, because he’s matured. He finally decided he’s not going to run away anymore. He is certainly not a leader, but he was a coward. A very big one, and a douchebag who gave people lessons through his tricks but who never learned himself. Never until that night he decided to help the Winchesters escape from Lucifer.
For the first time, he didn’t run away but turned around and faced his fears — which are facing what a monster his brother has become while Gabriel was pointedly ignoring it all for it hurt him too much.
He knew he was going to die. But he showed up anyway, because Gabriel had decided that humanity was worth the sacrifice. And maybe also because he hoped that after killing him Lucifer would finally snap out of his delusion that he could wipe out all humanity and accept his faith as second best in his Father’s eyes. Accept that this war is not only between he and humans but he and his family.
Gabriel died a hero, and his death was painful but so is life, and so are the things that really matter fighting for. The most important things and beliefs and freedom demand sacrifices.
Take away Gabriel’s death is take away his sacrifice, and the evolution his character has known, and the life lessons he’s learned. It’s taking away all of the powerful meaning behind it all.
So if you agree with this, please don’t “undead” him or repeatedly ask the writers to make him (because they could do it, to satisfy the audience *sigh*). They could always resurrect him, you know, which means bring him back from the dead and I have NO PROBLEMS with that. As long as he truly died that night, and believed it was the end.
"Ohhh?" Metatron mused, flipping through the pages of a novel. "I think I understand you better than you’d think. Sorry you didn’t like the script though," he waved the Winchester Gospel into the Holy Fire. "A bit over-the-top."
"You probably could have consulted some older scripts. You seem pretty oblivious to what I’m capable of, Meta-douche." Gabriel grumbled, clenching his fists tighter.
so i did a whole meta write-up on gabe and my urge to be all things gabriel was so strong i had to transform it into the visual equivalent too i wANT HIM BACK
And who gives a story meaning? Is it the writer? Or you?
Go out dressed like that, you’ll start a riot, Barbarella. There’s a wardrobe through there …
The Marauders used to take turns taking care of Harry when the others had Order business or were too busy or needed a night off. It became a tradition among them, as they were passing the baby into the next caretaker’s hands, to say “you’re it. good luck.”
The last thing Sirius saw as he was falling through the veil was Remus running over to Harry, and the last thought that ran through his head was “you’re it. good luck.”
