aaaaaaaaand now I'm off to watch it again and then go sell my soul/firstborn child to whoever has the power to ensure that Richard directs every single episode from here on out

EDIT: one teeny tine gripe, though it doesn't detract at all from 12x12: I[Spoiler (click to open)]'m getting kind of tired of Lucifer....oh well. I'll live.
sometimes I sink into a deep depression spiral whenever I think about the fact that I need to stay at my job (or any job, for that matter) for at least a year and a half.

and then there are times when I lose hours on Instagram, Pinterest, and Reddit fantasizing about all the tattoos I want permanently inked into my skin for the world to see.

when you decide to march on behalf of feminism and civil rights and think it would be awesome to make some signage with quotes from Parks & Recreation, you should always follow through with it instead of being a lazy fuck and not doing so (even though you already bought all the supplies needed to make said signage) because you just might run into Adam Scott casually eating lunch at the same Chipotle as you after the march but you didn't make the sign because you're lazy and don't like carrying things and also you don't want to be That Person and draw a bunch of attention when he's clearly hanging out quietly with his family but like...... it would have been so cool to show one of the cast members of one of your favorite shows just how much the show means to you and thank them for bringing you so much joy in such dark times

(more comprehensive post re. Women's March coming up, as soon as I get off my lazy ass and upload photos and gather my thoughts <3)

I've been spending a lot of time with Garrett and Kalon again lately and it feels really good, especially because I was stupidly convinced that they were actively avoiding me all last year (which turned out to be absolutely false lol). we got brunch at a super retro diner with serious Winchester vibes (pic!), watched Airplane! and the Naked Gun trilogy, and are planning on hitting up the local billiards bar and/or getting In-N-Out either later tonight or sometime this week before Garrett goes back to SD. so all in all, a pretty SPN Aesthetic™ day (because I feel like Dean especially would definitely enjoy the fuck out of those movies).

last year I sort of fell off the deep end, Winchester-style: burgeoning depression, isolation/avoidance of all my problems, burying myself in morbid humor and chugging whiskey at every opportunity. this year my hope is to live up to their better qualities: be a better person, look out for myself and for other people, and appreciate the small things in life. like spending more time with friends and eating huevos rancheros and watching hilarious movies that definitely would not be approved in today's rampant hyper-PC culture.

also, writing and art. it would be great to get back into creating fanworks. I don't want to set too many goals for myself because I tend to crumble under my own pressure, but just.... be more productive than I was last year. I think that's a pretty realistic benchmark to hit.

the one thing I am disappointed about is that I won't be able to travel a lot this year. barring any last-minute trips that are absolutely mandatory, the only travelling I'll be able to wrangle out of my work schedule and bank account is New Orleans. but it will be worth it if I can save up enough money to move out of LA. that's my goal for the first half of 2018 (gotta get my 2017 holiday bonus!), so this year will be the hard grind.

if my 86 logged hours of Stardew Valley has taught me anything, it's that all this grinding will be worth it in the end... but I also need to invest time in people and stay mindful of my relationships with family and friends. life lessons from a cutesy little 8-bit farming sim!

lastly, here is a particularly SPN-relevant quote from Stephen King's It that really struck a chord with me, so I wanted to share:

I love you all and wish you a happy and prosperous 2017 <3

Title: Abiogenesis (for de_nugis)
Pairing/Characters: Castiel POV; Sam/Cas and other Sam pairings
Word count: 2,692
Rating: G
Warnings: major character death (Heaven!fic)
Summary: The Winchesters' souls have long since ascended to Heaven, but that doesn't mean they're completely gone from Earth. Castiel watches them — or traces of them — on both planes, and waits for Sam to let him in.

A/N: I was inspired by a couple of your prompts, namely: the idea of Castiel experiencing some transfigured version of Sam's soul billions of years into the future, and Sam exploring/regaining his autonomy through relationships with a variety of partners. I focused heavily on the former in this fic, while the latter takes more of a supporting role that's mostly just hinted at through Cas' POV. I hope you enjoy reading this as much as I enjoyed writing it!

A huge shoutout to story_monger for all her patience and help in beta-ing and fact-checking every detail of this fic! Thank you so much!

Read below, or on AO3.

...is fucking me up real bad today and I don't think seeing Moana helped, AT ALL (no regrets). which I probably should have seen coming, since the entire premise is based on Polynesian navigation traditions in the South Pacific. honestly this is probably my second-favorite Disney move of all time, after Mulan.

all I've wanted to do for the past month or so is go swimming. in the ocean. really really far out, for a really really long time. barring that, I'd settle for a nice long drive up PCH.

suck a dick, Frozen.

I think the universe is trying to prevent me from playing Pokemon. there has just been an unnatural amount of hiccups in my quest to play this ONE FUCKING GAME (or two, actually — I got both Pokemon Sun and Alpha Sapphire, the latter more out of curiosity re. this reboot of my favorite game and also the last Pokemon game I ever played, 14 fucking years ago).

if life was an RPG this would be the shittiest side-quest.

a fucking sagaCollapse )
