Supernatural, Metalocalypse, Doctor Who, steampunk, whatever other random thing I decide to like.
I live in Ohio.
I have a cat.
I write sometimes.
I'm probably older than you think.
I had seen Captain America, and The Avengers before and had no real residual effects. Great movies, great times, but then just sort of keep going. I saw Winter Soldier once, same thing. Saw it a second time with my friend who hadn’t had a chance to see it yet… OMG STEVE… WHAT IS THIS I DON’T EVEN???? Why are you so awesome and perfect?
This is an important post
tell me something embarrassing you used to wear in high school that at the time you thought was super cool but now you look back and you cringe yourself into the fucking ionosphere.
I went through an Anne Rice period in junior high, and I would wear those little plastic Scarecrow vampire fangs to class. Thought I was hot shit, very mysterious and original.
*closes eyes and remembers hand made clothing. Re-purposed blue jeans. Velvet. Patches. Japanese words written in sparkly puff paint on everything. Dragonball Z shirts exclusively.*
*jolts from horrible waking nightmare with a start* Guh!!
for about six months in sophmore year i thought it was the best idea in the world to wear my hair in high pigtails on my head
also one time i wore capri pants and ugg boots and those were dark times
i was a scene kid so i teased my hair super big and had greasy straight-across bangs that i put hello kitty barrettes in. i also had this hideous rainbow-striped “rave dress” and i thought that accessorizing meant wearing as many shitty plastic bracelets as humanly possible
junior high was the real nightmare though, i was deep in my mall goth phase and wore massive platform boots with striped tights and tiny miniskirts and invader zim shirts because i thought i was emily the strange
in junior high i had a button-up white short-sleeved shirt with a shitty painted Jack Skellington face on the breast pocket and a baggy pair of black parachute pants with saggy belts on it that i wore almost every second day for a whole year. i had to mend both of those things by hand (meaning noticeably shoddily) because my mom hated them so much, and i couldn’t even wash the shirt bc the paint i put on it wasn’t even meant for fabric. that was back when i had a crusty eyebrow piercing that kept getting rejected and frizzy-yet-greasy blueberry black hair, so i was 100% the grossest emo kid in my school.
i had this sweater that had big thick horizontal black and white stripes that i’d wear over my school uniform shirt, plus my black uniform shorts and some knee high black and white socks to match the sweater, and black skate shoes + long black hair with a side fringe + bad white foundation and heavy eyeliner smudged all over my eyes
a polo shirt and jeans with big dangly silver claire’s earrings and office lady heels
add a zip-up sweatshirt with the sleeves pushed up to the elbows for extra style points
A neon-colored striped scarf with dangly pompoms on the ends.
After pirates of the Caribbean came out I dressed as a pirate for at least three months
cat ear headband, home made
oh and also full on hot topic goth from 15-19
A HIGHLANDER T-SHIRT
makeup straight out of an episode of “Blossom”
clothes straight out of a Phish concert
So I had this floppy denim hat that used to be my grandmother’s. It originally had a flower on the front, but it fell off so she gave it to me. I used to wear it daily, but, on top of that, I sewed things to it. Patches, plastic hearts, plastic butterflies, etc, etc. Every week or two I’d rip out the stitching and put new patches on it, or just rearrange the ones on it.
What the fuck was I thinking?
I wore a “Zero” Smashing Pumpkins shirt all the time. Not because I liked the band, but because I was THAT big of a Mega Man nerd…
Shiny Gold pants, I thought they were the shit, because I was in a phase where everything gold was amazingly cool.
I even had gold lipstick
I owned actual parachute pants. Not Hammer pants. Parachute pants. Man I loved all those zippers.
who can’t read a hand clock
There’s a girl in my school, who as a sophomore, had to have her volleyball team teach her how to do it.
When I was little and digital watches were just becoming a regular thing instead of an expensive one, my parents refused to get me one until I had learned how to tell time on a hand watch. It worked out ok cause my Miss Piggy watch was awesome.
ack why am I not finding ANY Captain America/Indiana Jones crossovers on AO3 I mean seriously keeping supernatural artifacts away from Nazis am I right?
This would be AMAZING.
9x18 WAS AWESOME
AT FIRST I THOUGHT THE WRITING WAS ANNOYING BECAUSE OF ALL THE EXPOSITORY PREACHY DIALOGUE (ESPECIALLY ON GABRIEL’S SCENES)
BUT THEN I REALIZED THAT IT WAS JUST METATRON’S SHITTY WRITING
THANK YOU! With all the cynical, and in a few cases, whiny, opinions about the ep, I’m so glad someone else GOT IT.
and like i didn’t hate metatron enough, he has to give cas centuries worth of story knowledge preventing him from ever experiencing them on his own and with his own unique emotions and reactions
I WILL RIP YOUR LUNGS OUT METATRON
I NEVER THOUGHT OF THAT MY HATE BURNS BRIGHTER STILL
you know what? until now, i actually had a little bit of trust in the writers. i had a little bit of faith, i guess. or at least i had faith that they respected us a bit. that they wouldn’t deliberately jerk us around just for the sake of jerking us around. that they wouldn’t dangle something we’ve wanted for YEARS in front of our noses like a goddamn carrot and then snatch it away.
this was a betrayal, and i’m angry about it.
I think it actually illustrates Metatron quite well. He’s playing the writer and he wants to introduce conflict among his “characters”. What better way than to bring in an old friend, but not really? In terms of Metatron, who he is and his goals, it was a brilliant move.
