Honestly, I think if nothing else, the vaguely nauseated feeling I've had since seeing the latest Sera Gamble interview has to do with feeling terrible for Misha Collins.

I can hear you now, and let me just head you off at the pass:

"Lulz, pretty sure he doesn't actually care; it's just a job to him, dumbass."

Really? Because I'm pretty sure I felt fucking gutted when I just lost my job of three years. A job I'd made dear friends at, that I put an ungodly amount of time and energy into, that I made sacrifices for, and that I cared about. A job that validated me in a lot of ways, and more than anything else, made sure I had the income I needed to take care of myself and my family.

I'm pretty sure it felt like a kick in the balls when I found out some of the people I'd worked with and gave a shit about said they'd be better off without me. Kind of like seeing a show runner say ehn, his story was "redundant" anyway, and the fans won't care.

I don't understand why fanart and AU fanfic tends to portray Castiel as the noticeably smaller, 'weaker', younger, or more emotional of the two, when he's featured with Dean.

Don't get me wrong, I still love and adore the art and fic. I just don't get it. Like, where it came from, when it started, if it's a fandom thing that I just haven't run across.

You guys.

The password to Batman's inner sanctum (where he keeps, among other things, Jason Todd's Robin costume as a memorial) is "chilidog."

Chilidog.

Jason Todd's favorite food, which Batman never let him have when Jason was his ward.

Jason Todd, his first adopted son, his second Robin, his greatest failure. Who was murdered on Batman's watch, who Batman never talks about, whose costume is kept in a glass memorial case, the destruction of which is always the 'greatest defilement' of the Batcave, and usually makes everyone stop and stare in horror for a while.

He doesn't talk about him. He can't begin to sort through his feelings about him (this is BATS, after all). When Jason comes back as the Red Hood, it's all rage and fighting and disapproval and disappointment and Batman still doesn't talk about him.

But he goddamn uses his son's favorite food as his password.

Everyone's vague pronouncements of some uncertain doom that's to come in the last few episodes of the season have left me verklempt. I'm not looking to hunt down spoilers, but just enough has been said to connect a few dots and give me the idea I'm not going to like the colored-in picture.

:(

You guys, I don't even know.

Through an odd course of events I don't even fully recall anymore (I place full blame on duskdog717), I ended up buying and watching both seasons of Glee, and... I'm hooked.

Fuck.

Last year was the first time in a while I did the whole New Years celebration deal. It ended, you may recall, in drunken shenanigans (god, I drunk-texted like EVERYONE in my phone's contacts list) and dropping my phone in the toilet.

This year I'm in high enough demand I've had to spread myself out. Last night I went to the bar with two of my buddies and got our drinking and Buck Hunter-ing out of the way. Tonight I go out with another one of my buddies, to her sister Stupid's place, in which there will be drinking and playing darts and, hopefully, no drunk texting or phone dropping, because this is the same place from last year. At least I just confirmed that Stupid hasn't attempted to cook anything (god, don't even ask about last year's brownies), so things are looking... good. Saturday I'm doing a late dinner with the last group, and marthoning some Supernatural, because I recently discovered one of my friends also watches it (with his roommate, and they pretty much schedule their day around it, it's adorable).

It's really really weird to realize I have a social life.

I'm finally prepared to admit that I'm invested in another fandom. I've also come to terms now with admitting that I'm not invested in the DCU as a whole; my investment begins and ends with Jason Todd, aka Robin II, aka the Red Hood.

Read more...Collapse )

To sum up: aaaaaaangst. GREY AREAS. Complicated father-son issues!

Also: I kind of love Nightwing admiring Red Hood's skills.

architeuthis: Fuck yeah. Whose post is that?

foofasaurus: ? OH. No, I just wrote that here.

architeuthis: --Oh oh I thought you were quoting someone. See, this is why you are my favorite. <3

foofasaurus: There was a surprising lack of swears per sentence, so I can see how you didn't immediately realize it was just me talking.

architeuthis: Yeah, I was confused and afraid.

foofasaurus: Although SKULLFUCKED should have tipped you off, maybe.

architeuthis: .... probably. I did think it was a particularly elegant deployment of that word.

It would seem Comcast is granting me online time just long enough to say:

Jesus flipping Christ, Supernatural.

Effing God.
