we’ve taught girls to romanticise nearly everything a boy does. when i was younger i thought it was cute that boys chased the girl even after she said no. i loved it when after a girl moved away from a kiss, the guy would pull her back and force it on. i thought a guy saying ‘i won’t take a no for an answer’ was passionate and romantic. we’re literally always teaching girls to romanticise abusive traits.

I can’t remember if we’ve ever discussed this, but one thing that really jumped out at me while re-watching Stairway to Heaven just now was how Cas kept glancing over at Dean as Metatron spoke. In the top gif, Metatron has just implied that none of them know the real Castiel, and it’s clear why he looked at Dean then, as he had been worrying the entire episode that Dean didn’t trust him.
The second gif, however, is what really breaks my heart. Metatron has just brought up Cas’ stolen grace, and how it’s burning him out. Up to this point Dean had no idea that Cas was dying, and I think he wanted to keep this information from him from this at all costs. Cas was in the midsts of trying to get to Heaven in order to try and save Dean from the mark, all the while trying to protect him from the knowledge that he was likely not going to be around much longer. I think Cas felt guilt for not telling him for sure, but most of all he felt protective. To quote Karen Singer, when Dean asked her in 5x15 why she didn’t just tell Bobby that she remembered how she died:

My job is to bring him peace…not pain.

And recall how Karen told Dean he couldn’t understand this because he had never been in love. Then recall that moments later Metatron reveals Castiel’s true weakness. But, like Karen, it was not humanity he was protecting, it was always one man…

Agree with your thinking here.

#something i just wish i hadn’t noticed: bucky does this thing with his mouth like he’s trying to phrase his offer to steve#bucky isn’t this super suave guy who always knows what to say and when#not even to the guy he grew up with#i need 2 sit down#maybe for 70 years
pARISA ffff i need those tags for accuracy help me

he does that wince-frown two other times in the movie; later in this same scene
and earlier in the film, during the conversation with Pierce in the bank vault. Yeah. That frown he does after he goes “but I knew him”.
That expression was 100% Bucky Barnes.

As long as I’m avoiding my Russian homework, I’ll share my Jensen op with the world.
So I happen to be friends with these chicas, and Emily was with me at NJ Con. I didn’t know what to do for my Jensen op, so she spotted me money for eight bananas like a true homie.
When it was my turn for the op, I just said "They’re baaaaaaaaaack~"
He fucking lost it.
Once he stopped laughing, still smiling a stupidly wide smile he asked “What are we gunna do??” “I dunno, what do you want to do with eight bananas?” He tried to grab them all from me. I grabbed one back, because wow rude don’t just grab at my bananas that’s my potassium for the week the nerve of these celebrities I swear to godJensen: “Okay, what now?” "I don’t know what you’re going to do, but I have to make a call…"
He hands them back to me, and I assure him that Clif will keep them safe until he’s done with his ops. 
I only regret that when he asked me “What are we gunna do?” I missed the opportunity to say “Go bananas” because, duh. I dropped the ball on that one.
Anyway, Jensen Banackles is back.
