I actually kind of love this scene, and I think for the most part it speaks for itself… so just don’t understand how Destiel shippers are upset about it! I read it as entirely supportive of a Dean and Cas relationship. And here’s why:
Cas is wearing a somewhat cheeky look when he brings up April because he knows it will perturb Dean. And the first thing that Dean remembers about her is that Cas had sex with her. So, Cas knows he’s struck a chord just like he had been predicting and (I’d say somewhat mockingly, yet acting quite innocently) says “Yeah, and you stabbed.” (Like that’s another thing you might remember about her Dean, if you cared less about who I was sleeping with.) And Dean picks up on the fact that Cas is taking a jab at him, hence the open-mouthed reaction and the glance at Sam (to see if he’s picking up on what Cas is really getting at). “She was hot,” Dean says, trying to lead the conversation back to safe territory. And I mean, I guess you can see it differently but Cas isn’t exactly hiding his eye roll when he responds, "So hot." Because all Cas knows about “love” and relationships is what he’s learned from Dean, and although looks may be among the most important things to Dean, Cas mostly liked her because she was "very nice." And the next clip is Dean realizing just how far Cas exists outside and above the norms of our society. Cas liked April first and foremost for the person she was (//well who she was pretending to be//) rather than reasons that are normally highly valued: looks, conformity, etc. Cas doesn’t care about societal norms, I mean come on, he’s utterly indifferent to sexual orientation. And Dean is very caught up in this realization, jerking back into the moment and casting a wary glance at Sam before a dazed expression crosses his face once again.
And Sam! There is no better expression for watching your brother realize that it’s perfectly fine to be head-over-heels in love with the guy sitting next to him. As if the whole exchange wasn’t incriminating enough, it’s Sam’s reactions to the whole situation that solidify my opinion of this scene. I mean, he’s playing the awkward third-wheel perfectly! What other way can it be described?
As for that last gif… “Not every hook up’s perfect." Need I elaborate? You can read it as a reminder or a promise (**that smile, though**), but one thing’s for sure… Dean and Cas are desperately, hopelessly, dewy-eyed, rosy-cheeked, perfectly in love.
Oh yeah, the gifset!
Now excuse me while I laugh about this exchange forever.
almost had it bwahahahaha
What I love about this is that it’s true to the games. In the regular anime, Pokeballs that fail to catch a Pokemon just bounce off and go back to the trainer. Here, it’s fucking DISINTEGRATED. You don’t get that ball back, son.
LOOK AT HOW FUCKING PISSED MEWTWO IS HOLY SHIT
Why is Swift the first move a super pissed off Mewtwo uses?
because it’s a guaranteed hit and he wants to make sure you’re nice and tenderized before fully wrecking your shit with Psystrike
Try and tell me pokemon is not the shit
I want you to fucking try it.
This is you. This is where all your thoughts are kept. Every other part of your body is used to protect and sustain this.
I want to cry
it’s weirdly comforting to know that all of the meaningless bullshit society judges me on is just a meatsuit made to support the terrifying tentacle beast that is my true form (◡‿◡✿)
THAT LAST COMMENT. BAM.
LOOK AT ALL THE EMOTIONS
I literally didnt recognize her
i only knew it was her because of the start of the shhh shhh and the fascinating gif…
It’s almost like the character makes a difference. It’s almost like Bella Swan is a terribly written and completely flat character and no actress could have believably put emotion into her portrayal with the lines and motivations they were given. It’s almost like when she’s given a decent character she can give a great performance. IT’S ALMOST LIKE SHE’S AN ACTRESS.
I was Re-watching Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone and I realized that the Dursleys not only failed Harry (which they did majorly), they failed Dudley as well.
By spoiling him and enabling him to bully and belittle others from such a young age they are partly what made him the way he was.
Like how they showed him to be greedy by showering him with presents on his birthday and not objecting or telling him he should be grateful when he complained and asked for more.
Or by turning the other way (and even encouraging him) when he bullied other children, especially Harry.
It was their responsibility to teach him right from wrong and they failed.
I am not saying Dudley is completely innocent or that he is stuck being a greedy bully but they certainly didn’t do him any favours.
“Dumbledore paused, and although his voice remained light and calm, and he gave no obvious sign of anger, Harry felt a kind of chill emanating from him and noticed that the Dursleys drew very slightly closer together.
'You did not do as I asked. You have never treated Harry as a son. He has known nothing but neglect and often cruelty at your hands. The best that can be said is that he has at least escaped the appalling damage you have inflicted upon the unfortunate boy sitting between you.'”

Everyone’s regretting it. If I’d known it’d be this hellish, I’d never chosen to be a soldier. Now that I’m exhausted it’s all i can thing about. If I hadn’t become a soldier, I wouldn’t have to think about who will be on that pile next. I know we have to fight, but not everyone is as eager to die as you.
