As if anyone could really forget the most quoted line in “The Avengers” — “I’ve got red in my ledger; I’d like to wipe it out” — it helps to have that line fresh in your mind when deconstructing what Widow does in the final act of what’s billed as a Captain America movie. Black Widow doesn’t wipe out the red in her ledger. No, she blasts her ledger out to the world, like it was the grisliest email forward of all time. We know from her heart to heart with Hawkeye that the shame she feels about what she’s done is real, and she hesitates when she realizes that taking down the bad guys means revealing her secrets. But she does it anyway, because she’s not just a spy anymore; she’s a super hero, and she makes a super hero’s sacrifice. (x)
Yeah, man. Best of both worlds- salty and sweet.
Anonymous asked: how would you want to see destiel become canon? like, textually, no room for argument, boom there it is. the specific scene where it happens. how would you like that scene to play out?
With the way it’s being set up at present, I’d really like a scenario in which Cas is about to make a big sacrifice to save Dean’s life, and Dean tries to protest, and somewhere in there Cas tells Dean that he’s in love with him….and Dean says nothing. He’s stunned, and Cas goes off to make this great sacrifice (whatever that may be, possibly something with his grace and removing the mark) thinking Dean doesn’t love him back in the same way.
I’d like for it to stay this way for a few episodes, with Dean neither confirming nor denying that he feels the same way, but since season 8 happened we all know that he does, he was just so resigned to the fact that Cas would never feel that way about him that he doesn’t know how to react. So Cas is gone for a while, and Dean is struggling with this, sort of like in season 7, but not something that goes on for more than a few episodes. Ideally Sam would bring it up later on, asking him if he wants to talk about it, but Dean would brush it off as nothing even though it’s clearly something. I live for Sam’s reactions to Dean and Cas stuff okay. :P
Anyways, this would possibly happen at the end of season 10, with it either being left open to be resolved in season 11, if it happens, or Cas returning in the season 10 finale, where Dean would let him know that he feels the same way. If season 11 happens clearly this would be stretched out a lot further. Cas could have one of his miraculous resurrections because reasons at the beginning of season 11, he would be a fully powered angel again, and working with the Winchesters in what would (hopefully) be the final season of the show. The subtext would build and build, with so much tension between them that we would literally be tearing our hair out at that point. Dean would be awkward as hell with Cas, Cas would be cold and closed off at first because he would be certain Dean could never feel that way about him…
But near the end of season 11, something would happen, perhaps something that would make Cas feel like he needed to return to Heaven for good, and Dean would ask him to stay. Finally, he would ask him to stay. Not because he needed him for his mojo or to help with a hunt, but because he feels the same way. Ideally there would be a kiss, but their fingers lacing together would make me just as happy, and would be just as effective imo.
Whether Cas has grace or not in the end no longer matters to me, the big thing for me will be them choosing each other regardless of grace or Heaven or what they feel they’re supposed to do out of duty. Beyond this I haven’t really thought about it that much, this isn’t really a specific scene I know, just a general overview of how I think the rest of their story should play out. I just know I want it to hurt a lot more than it already does before we get the big pay off…because I’m a masochist I guess. :P
Still in Niagara Falls, heading home late tomorrow and then it’s back to work and my regularly scheduled life on Tuesday - I’ll try to get on here when I can but for now I’ll be steering clear until I’ve seen the new DW. Hope you’re all enjoying these last few days of summer!
