"The Bard at The Bar" is freaking amazing, but then again so is most of your work. How many new pieces do you have to do for the portfolio?

About a dozen.  FML.  But thank you!

Anyone with any critical thinking skills could see the only people who can be an absolute authority are the writers themselves.

Hello! First of all, I really enjoy your SPN metas - fantastic, they make me think so much! I've just discovered you and I so much meta to devour :D But, I can't seem to find anything on Benny and/his relationship with Dean. Have you written anything about him/them? If you didn't, it's cool either way - I just wanted to confirm if I'm to stupid to notice it or it's not there. Thank you, and keep up the great work!

I don’t think I have written about Benny and Dean much, actually, except in a few of my meta where I’ve talked about how I think having a real, non-related friend who wasn’t tied up in his father and with whom he had an actual brothers-in-arms-I’d-die-for-you-buddy relationship was a valuable step for Dean in having to look at his feelings for Cas and realize they are inclusive of that but that there’s also…um…yeah…soanywaylet’snottalkaboutthatwowheylookboobs….

No, I don’t ship Dean/Benny (though I did draw it once for Winjennster), but I certainly would list it, like Bobby/Rufus, as ships-that-technically-I-don’t-see-in-canon-but-if-you-wrote-them-I-wouldn’t-consider-them-to-contradict-canon-either.

I'm wondering if Cas/Hannah is going to happen (if mutal or one sided) to you think that is angel-incest?

I think that applying human definitions of family, sexuality, and accompanying taboos to non-corporeal atemporal multidimensional energy entities who are essentially sentient expressions of an abstract concept taking corporeal manifestation and/or inhabiting unrelated individuals as host organisms is…an inexact science at best.  They use the words “brother” and “sister” in modern English, but even within that, those often have a ceremonial rather than a literal meaning when used in a religious context.  

In other words, while I have no idea how Cas/Hannah is going to play out, if they do engage sexually with one another, I wouldn’t consider it remotely like human incest or the same taboos to be relevant  because of the extreme difference not only in species but in concept of being.

I was always 50/50 on whether to reblog this but the last comment pushed it to like 95/5 in favor.

"What’s our stop?"
"You’ll get off when I tell you to."

One of my favorite things about Hermione is how ruthlessly practical she is.  She’s scary because not only is she book smart; she can take in disparate pieces of information and triage the ever loving shit out of that.  Piece X and piece F go together so resolution M.  And her mind is quick enough that she makes those choices in seconds.  Well-informed choices that also combine instinct.   For as much as she’s a bookworm who overthinks things, it’s because she has too much time on her hands to overthink things.  Basically, Hermione is built for war.  She’s built for conflict and strategy.

Does she always make the “right” or the “good” choices?  No.  No, she doesn’t.  She pulls some truly horrific shit, but out of all of the kids, she’s got the ability to see the breadth that the others don’t.  That they shouldn’t.  And for all that she does have the ability to see the true size of the fuckery that is going on, she’s also still a child.  So she fucks up and learns.  And for as horrific as what she did to her parents is - because oh my god - this war is not one they could even comprehend let alone participate in.  And I do think it’s a discredit to Hermione to think that she doesn’t get how awful the thing she did is.  She knows and she did it anyway because above all else, she wanted them alive to a.) hate her or b.) never knew she existed.

Hermione is a General by the end of this.  And the most amazing and horrific thing about that is that she’ll have to deal with the consequences of the choices she made.  She was smart enough to know that, going in.  So the fact that she walked into this, eyes open, with a truly strong grasp of what actually was going to happen, rather than rose glasses, makes her all the more amazing to me.

(ETA: Even though I don’t condone physical violence, one of my favorite moments is Hermione hitting Harry over the head with the parchment.  Because he’s all “I should totally hit it with that fangirl cuz!” and she’s all a.) stop thinking you’re that special, I’ve met you and b.) you don’t treat women like that, even though they think they want you to.  Be the better person, Potter.  She achieves this with a whack to the head and a glare.  LOVE YOU HERMIONE.)

Let’s just put it like this: day one coming back from hiatus, I’m directing, I’m getting back into the groove, and I’m introducing a new character, which is Demon Dean,” Ackles laughs. “And already we’ve seen him in two episodes that I haven’t filmed yet, and boom! ‘Okay, go. You’re now here, in this storyline’… I got together with [showrunner] Jeremy [Carver, who] said, ‘You know what you’re doing. We trust you.’ Which is fantastic, but also a little scary because it’s like I hope I made the right choice!

So this means Jensen created the character without previous direction. Demon Dean is his creation.
