Confession: I really hate it when people try to devalue Jensen and Jared’s friendship just to bolster Jensen’s friendship with Misha, trying to make it seem like its better or whatever the agenda is. Just, no. Don’t do that.

This “Moron” Has Feelings Too

I get really get tired of the anti-Christian posts on my timeline. I don’t really want to unfollow people because I generally enjoy their posts or them as a person, but I do get tired of feeling put down because of my personal beliefs. I’m not a moron, a zealot, crazy or any of the other negative adjectives used regularly to describe people who believe in the same ideals I do. 

I try to be so careful to not insult other people who believe differently from me because I don’t want to hurt them just because we don’t agree on a thing. But, constantly, I have to read about what a stupid, dumb, uneducated, back-woods, crazy effing idiot I am by proxy of considering myself a Christian. It gets so old.

I may be in the minority here, but I don’t feel like putting down people with different beliefs is helping anyone be a better person or better informed.

Hey! I love your response on the "samwinchesteraopreciation" post. I'm 37, and finding that being on the "wrong side of 30" here tends to be no fun at all.

Thanks! I have definitely seen grown women our age behaving just as badly as anyone, but I’ve also noticed, in general, that a lot of the main drama these days seems to come from those who are 25 and under. Of course, there are young people who are incredibly mature—but that doesn’t seem to be the majority. Especially where ships and the big fuss over female characters are concerned. 

I’m going wildly off topic here, but I see it like this. I knew the basic parameters of the show when I started watching it and, when I turn it on, I am agreeing to go along with how it is set up despite what I may interpret or wish for or even believe on a personal level.  I don’t always have to like it and I can always join in with other fans in discussing it, but I know I can’t change it. 

Its like buying a product. You read the label and then decide if its something you want or not. You don’t attack, harass and bully the manufacturer to change their product to fit your specifications. I think its okay to give general feedback in a respectful manner—but to throw a huge temper tantrum like we’ve seen happen is beyond the pale. And that’s what I see a lot of the younger fans doing.

I also firmly believe that fanon stuff should remain fanon for the most part. Our drama should be kept among ourselves and not aired out for (or directed at) all the actors, crew members, writers, etc. to see. And we should never try to force our fanon desires onto those who create the show.

So, yeah, social media can be irritating to me as a person who is too old to tolerate drama and tantrums (of course, I’ve always been old in the soul no matter my chronological age, so maybe its just me), but I think being a little more experienced is an advantage in things like that post I responded to because I’ve seen all those kinds of arguments years before and I know with some people, you just can’t win. There’s no point in getting upset because you can’t really talk to someone with their mind made up about a thing. Some people want to be unhappy, want to find something to be upset about and want to cause drama. *shrugs*

Sorry for my huge tangent, but its been on my mind a lot this last summer  and even now.

Two days since the premiere, and people are already saying that Dean owes Sam an apology for how he is behaving.

Dean is accountable for his actions as a demon, see?

But Chuck forbids that we make Sam accountable for what he did soulless. Because Soulless Sam is not Sam, same as Demon Blood Addict Sam was not Sam, and it is NEVER Sam’s fault.

*Sigh*

I guess I pretty much figure whatever Dean does as a demon gets a total free pass and anyone who feels differently must not understand the concept of what it means to be twisted into a demon in the same way I do. Though there are vestiges of Dean there, its still not human Dean. It’s just not. It seems simple to me.

he’s my best friend, my partner in crime

#i hope people remember this when Sam and Dean come out of this #i people remember the pain Sam is feeling here #finding out his brother isn’t dead and he isn’t in danger but he’s literally abandoned and hiding from him #without any word or explanation #and he did it on purpose #he knew exactly how Sam would react #and he still did this #and did not care the damage it would do to Sam #i hope people remember this and never give Sam hell for s8 when he had totally understandable reason to think Dean was dead #and totally understandable reasons to try to start over #bc at least leaving Dean in purgatory wasn’t purposeful neglect and avoidance #or abandonment (via)

Except… Dean is a demon right now and not in his right mind? This is not even comparable to what happened in Season 8. A closer approximation would be to soulless Sam, who let Dean believe he was dead and suffering in hell in the cage with Michael and Lucifer for a whole year. At least demon Dean bothered to leave a note.  

What?? Now Dean respects Sam’s agency and treats him as an adult who can well look after himself and it’s still wrong? Now he definitely DOES’T try to control him - quite the opposite - and it’s STILL WRONG?

"abandoned him"? Like, just because Sam said "I lied" everything he said in the past season is forgotten??

Eh, with some people, Dean will always be wrong no matter what he does. It really does not matter what he does. They want him to be wrong and will look for any reason to dislike him or criticize him. Its best to ignore those kind for the sake of your mental health and your blood pressure.

It becomes a problem when the only way you know how to survive is to continually burn yourself out.

It should show on your activity? And you can track the novembersguest tag?

Well, you would think it would show up in my activity, but not always—depending on what it is…and sometimes I’m sure I just don’t catch it because it moves down my timeline before I see it. Guess I’ll try tracking, a new adventure for me! :)

heather on the hill  by Chris Beesley

adventuresofalgy:

The wind was rapidly growing stronger and a severe gale was forecast for later in the day, so Algy decided to catch up with his reading while he could. He found himself a cosy, sheltered spot on a bank of late-flowering heather, and tried to tuck his head into his book, although the wind had other ideas…

Sitting there in the heather with the wind in his feathers and a gale blowing up, Algy was inevitably reminded of a poem by Emily Brontë:

          High waving heather, ‘neath stormy blasts bending,
          Midnight and moonlight and bright shining stars;
          Darkness and glory rejoicingly blending,
          Earth rising to heaven and heaven descending,
          Man’s spirit away from its drear dongeon sending,
          Bursting the fetters and breaking the bars.

          All down the mountain sides, wild forest lending
          One mighty voice to the life-giving wind;
          Rivers their banks in the jubilee rending,
          Fast through the valleys a reckless course wending,
          Wider and deeper their waters extending,
          Leaving a desolate desert behind.

          Shining and lowering and swelling and dying,
          Changing for ever from midnight to noon;
          Roaring like thunder, like soft music sighing,
          Shadows on shadows advancing and flying,
          Lightning-bright flashes the deep gloom defying,
          Coming as swiftly and fading as soon.

[Algy is quoting the poem High Waving Heather by the 19th century English writer Emily Brontë.]
