“I read your Winter Soldier analysis, and I have a question : you say that "There’s a reason his code name is drawn from an investigation into one of the ugliest chapters of American history." Please help a non-American understand what you meant? I mean I obviously see the Cold War reference in the movie, but from what you've written it seems like something more subtle *within* the Cold War... shit, I mean just "Cold War" seems too evident and I can't find the deeper meaning?”

Oh gosh, don’t feel bad, there are plenty of Americans who have never even heard of this.

The Winter Soldier Investigation was a 1971 veteran-organized media event intended to draw attention to the war crimes that had taken place in Vietnam. Directly inspired by the exposure of the My Lai Massacre (the mass murder of over five hundred unarmed civilians by American troops) in 1969, Vietnam Veterans Against the War (VVAW) brought together discharged servicemen from every branch of the military to discuss the atrocities they had seen and committed during their time in the war. They hoped bring these tragedies before the public eye, and to prove that American military policies led directly to the death and torment of civilians. Eventually a transcript from this conference made its way before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee during the Fullbright Hearings.  

When Ed Brubaker, the author who wrote the original Winter Soldier arc, chose the name, he wanted something that would call up both cold Siberian winters and the atrocities of war. This fit the bill.

But the term itself, the idea of “winter soldiers”, was coined by VVAW as a response to the writings of Thomas Paine, who described the men who deserted at Valley Forge during the American Revolution:

These are the times that try men’s souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country, but he that stands by it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman.

A winter soldier is someone who will warm their hands over a meager fire and weather the cold. Someone who refuses to abandon their country and its potential, no matter what the personal cost.

So how’s that for a weird little twist? According to Thomas Paine—activist, political philosopher, and revolutionary—the real winter soldier is Captain America.

“"Dark siders need to make Derek the bad guy, and they need to emphasize that he “knows his place” because Scott’s true alphaness relies on Derek’s, not vice versa." *slow clapping in the distance* That’s pretty much the problem I have with Scott stans (and whit the show to be honest) , they do all they can to degrade Derek, because without Derek as "the bad one", Scott part as "the good one" is almost non-existent.”

Reblogging as quote since my inbox isn’t working properly.

Glad I’m not the only one who thinks so. Season 3a made that so obvious - it was the huge problem, imo, of Scott’s arc. And because the writing of Scott really hasn’t improved all that much, it’s still a problem for those clinging to him as the One True Alpha (TM).

 

(via uniwolfwerecorn)

In a literary sense this is done in a triumvirate with Stiles as well, the three of them shift roles, and it’s actually more complex than simply Derek=villain=good=Scott, but when Derek is a villain is Scott is a hero and Stiles is the “victim” these terms are highly simplified for the explanation. But when Derek takes the role of victim, then Stiles becomes Champion and Scott villain, and when he is hero that means Scott becomes the victim.

(seriously, I have to look it up every time)

So for their fave to be the best werewolf in the world they have to reduce the narrative from drama (where these roles change) to melodrama, where they don’t, and ignore 2/3 of the narrative.

actually it’s about 85% of the narrative because Scott doesn’t take the hero role very often at all.

The narrative takes all three roles, Derek as victim being most often, and it’s a lack of comprehension or wilful blindness to the alternative.

Instead of promoting those moments where Scott is a hero to present how he will rise they spend their energies exaggerating Derek’s behaviour until it comes to the point where they might as well watch another show.

It’s why I’m glad that they are a small minority, because dealing with them is exhausting.

(via athenadark)

And the argument that the steering wheel incident is the proof that DEREK IS AN ABUSER OMG is a prime example of how they’re ignoring the majority of canon, because everything after season 1 shows that Derek is anything but, but that doesn’t support their argument, so it doesn’t count. Puh-LEEZE.

Crow solves an 8 step process. Crows are amazing, I’ve been photographing them here in Seattle for a couple of years. They have distinct personalities and remember our faces. They actually started flying in and waiting for me when I would get home in hopes of a free unsalted peanut. I think of them as friends. I had no idea they could do THIS. An 8 step problem solving process. They’ve trained on each separate task, though not all together. This was the first time.

So do you think the monsters are Nephilim hybrids?

It would make sense, right?. We know God didn’t create them so maybe the angels and the Nephilim did and they became abominations because the angels weren’t as skilled in creation as God.We know Luci created Demons and even he considered them less than humans. But what does that make “Mother”? Angel? Super Juiced Neph?

#proof that Derek did teach them something#and they used it later to help themselves and others#derek hale was a good alpha#had the potential to be a great alpha#even though he made mistakes#all the derek hale feelssss (haletostilinski)

No, these are not examples of Derek being a good alpha. They’re examples of Derek being “someone to share a few trade secrets” which is the place he has in the pack now.
Derek wasn’t a good alpha, it wasn’t the right fit for him, which is why Tyler Hoechlin said Derek has “finally realized that that’s not his calling, that’s not who he is supposed to be." It’s why Tyler Hoechlin said Derek has "recognized that his role is exactly what it was in the beginning with Scott, which was the student/teacher kind of thing." Derek’s current position in the pack is one of a teacher and a mentor, not a leader. And his new position is one that he’s well suited for, as this gifset demonstrates.

Gee, another example of Zani crapping all over someone else’s hard work and labor of love. Which again got back to the creator and caused upset.
It’s almost as if Zani can’t enjoy the show without making someone else feel bad because they interpret it differently than she does. Her word and interpretation is law and woe betide any who disagree with her.
Why don’t you create your own damn gifsets to illustrate your own damn points instead of leaving a steaming pile upon someone else’s work, huh?
So sick of these darksiders and their bullshit.

Zani does what the show also does. The thing about Scott is, he can’t stand on his own. For Scott to shine, the show needs to show (or actually rather, tell) the differences between him and Derek.
I wrote about that before.
For example, for Scott to be able to take Isaac in, Derek needs to throw him out. So of course the show does that in a way that makes it look as if Derek were an abusive asshole without people skills, so that Scott can look good displaying compassion and generosity.
And just as the narrative needs Derek to fail so that Scott has opportunity to succeed, Zani needs to emphasize that Derek is not a leader, because if he were, it would threaten Scott’s position, and maybe allow doubts about what Scott has actually going for him.
It’s of no use, because anyone who looks closely realizes that Derek was always about protecting people and caring for them, whereas Scott often has different priorities. 
Isaac is actually a good example. Yes, Scott (or rather Melissa, because it’s ultimately her decision) takes Isaac in, but Derek’s motive for throwing him out the way he did was to protect him. The next person to lash out at Isaac is Scott himself - and for what reason? Ouf of jealousy and possessiveness towards a woman’s sexuality.
It’s like that pretty much all the time.
Dark siders need to make Derek the bad guy, and they need to emphasize that he “knows his place” because Scott’s true alphaness relies on Derek’s, not vice versa.

No, these are not examples of Derek being a good alpha. They’re examples of Derek being “someone to share a few trade secrets” which is the place he has in the pack now.
Derek wasn’t a good alpha, it wasn’t the right fit for him, which is why Tyler Hoechlin said Derek has “finally realized that that’s not his calling, that’s not who he is supposed to be." It’s why Tyler Hoechlin said Derek has "recognized that his role is exactly what it was in the beginning with Scott, which was the student/teacher kind of thing." Derek’s current position in the pack is one of a teacher and a mentor, not a leader. And his new position is one that he’s well suited for, as this gifset demonstrates.

Gee, another example of Zani crapping all over someone else’s hard work and labor of love. Which again got back to the creator and caused upset.
It’s almost as if Zani can’t enjoy the show without making someone else feel bad because they interpret it differently than she does. Her word and interpretation is law and woe betide any who disagree with her.
Why don’t you create your own damn gifsets to illustrate your own damn points instead of leaving a steaming pile upon someone else’s work, huh?
So sick of these darksiders and their bullshit.

Zani does what the show also does. The thing about Scott is, he can’t stand on his own. For Scott to shine, the show needs to show (or actually rather, tell) the differences between him and Derek.
I wrote about that before.
For example, for Scott to be able to take Isaac in, Derek needs to throw him out. So of course the show does that in a way that makes it look as if Derek were an abusive asshole without people skills, so that Scott can look good displaying compassion and generosity.
And just as the narrative needs Derek to fail so that Scott has opportunity to succeed, Zani needs to emphasize that Derek is not a leader, because if he were, it would threaten Scott’s position, and maybe allow doubts about what Scott has actually going for him.
It’s of no use, because anyone who looks closely realizes that Derek was always about protecting people and caring for them, whereas Scott often has different priorities. 
Isaac is actually a good example. Yes, Scott (or rather Melissa, because it’s ultimately her decision) takes Isaac in, but Derek’s motive for throwing him out the way he did was to protect him. The next person to lash out at Isaac is Scott himself - and for what reason? Ouf of jealousy and possessiveness towards a woman’s sexuality.
It’s like that pretty much all the time.
Dark siders need to make Derek the bad guy, and they need to emphasize that he “knows his place” because Scott’s true alphaness relies on Derek’s, not vice versa.

It’s late and I’m trying to sleep but for some reason my mind doesn’t want to let me. It’s eerily quiet and I keep thinking of the many times Dean must have been lying on his bed like this, unable to calm his thoughts and brimming over with worries.

And so he decides to pray to Cas. Do you ever just stop and think how fucking INTIMATE that is. It’s really hitting me right now… Dean’s laying his heart bare for his angel - he doesn’t even know where he is or if he’s listening. But he can’t help it. It’s as though the praying makes him feel less alone. But there’s so much uncertainty with it too, you know? Is Cas listening in? Does he even care? Will he ever come back? But then I think Cas doesn’t even realize how big a deal this is for Dean.

And I just… can’t with these two.

For Dean, prayer is infinitely personal.  No one has ever been privy to his wants and needs the way he allows himself to be when he prays to Cas.

To angels, prayer is just another form of communication.  It can’t be that much different from background music: if you really pay attention or your favorite song comes on, then you might pick up the lyrics but otherwise it just starts to fade into the background. 

However, how many people would have prayed to Cas in his existance?  Not very many would have known his name to even do so, much less prayed to him every day.  And over the years, Dean’s prayers have become less about crying out for help and more about staying in contact - checking up on Cas, letting him know that he is missed, and reminding him that he is known. 

I bet Cas is looking forward to every little moment he gets to hear Dean’s voice. No matter where he is or what he is doing - Dean praying always gives him a surge of warmth and familiarity. But he doesn’t talk about it, doesn’t acknowledge it in front of Dean because, as you say, Cas is used to the prayers in general. He’s used to the fact that he can’t communicate back. But I also think he’s scared to let on how much it means to him… and maybe he feels guilty over all the times he was unable or unwilling to come and help Dean.

In 9x10 he says: “I came as soon as you called!”

In 9x18 he says: “I miss my wings.”

And, I think, what he means to say is: “For the first time in forever, I wouldn’t leave you alone in your despair. I would drop everything and be at your side immediately if you needed me to. But this time, I can’t - because I don’t have my wings.”

Do you ever wonder if maybe Cas prays to Dean too?  Because it is a type of communication for angels.  And after everything that has happened with his family, he doesn’t have any of them left to talk to. 

I mean we know that he does pray. In 4x7 he says: “I was praying that you would choose to save the town.”  Although he stopped praying to God long ago after realizing that his father wasn’t listening. 

However, maybe even subconsiously, what if he started doing it to his best friend? The one that he rebelled for, fell for, died and lived for.  As Dean said once, “Prayer is a sign of faith”  If there is anything that Castiel truly has faith in, it is the man that he saved and who saved him as well.

Only Dean can’t hear Cas when he prays all his thoughts to him; can you even imagine all the intimate messages that could be going unheard - perhaps in part because Dean will never truly know the depth of what he is trying to convey in his most natural language? 

Now…

…for feelings…

…combine this with this out-there idea (thanks, attackofthekillermexisaurusrex) of Dean stealing Cas’ grace at the end of the season.

Suddenly, Dean can hear all of Cas’ prayers, the almost unconscious, continuous stream of praying that Cas has grown into over the years. Perhaps, even, the backlog of unheard prayers. And this is what Dean is hearing and understanding for the first time, as he leaves to carry out his final mission.

What kills me is up to that last gif he hasn’t been making eye contact. He’s been lost in his own confusion and memories and even his lashing out is not from a desire to hurt everyone, but from flashbacks. He’s treated like a thing and he acts like a thing. Even his not answering how Pierce wants isn’t defiant, it’s like a broken record. He’s completely submissive to everyone in that room, disturbingly so. The scene was him being completely vulnerable (he has weapons pulled on him, he’s half dressed surrounded by men in SWAT gear, he looks like a chastened child).
But the last gif he makes eye contact. Because this question is so important to him. Seventy years of being a THING and there’s this glimmer of SOMETHING. There’s a name. There’s a person. There’s a chance he’s not just some weapon to be used and abused as needed. They talk around him, they ignore him, they abuse him…but this is important enough for him to pursue. So he makes eye contact. Like a HUMAN. That eye contact. That look of “I KNOW I know this…and I know you’re gonna take it from me…I know you’re going to hurt me for knowing this…but I KNOW it no matter what you say”. That second gif is regret that he can’t let go of this rabbit trail, but that third one…that third one says “I know you’re lying to me and I know that doesn’t matter because I’m too broken to fight back, but I know I’m right”.
No wonder Pierce doesn’t even bother to demand anything but wiping him after that look. His weapon just looked at him like a human.

EXCUSE ME, FANDOM, BUT COULD YOU STOP IT WITH YOUR ACCURATE AND HEART-BREAKING META LONG ENOUGH FOR ME TO PULL MYSELF BACK TOGETHER? THANKS.

Wow. What a way to canonize Destiel would this be:

Metatron has been working with Crowley all this time to shape Dean into the new Judas. The Mark is the metaphor for Satan entering Judas. 

Metatron and Crowley make Dean an offer: Abaddon on a silver platter if he gives up Castiel, the new Messiah. They have Dean and all of Castiel’s followers convinced that Cas is the great evil, that he is the source of the devastation of the angels and one thing standing between them and Paradise, on Earth and in Heaven. 

Castiel will know that his crucifixion is destiny at the hands of the New God and will succumb, if only to pay his penance for his past transgressions and accept this as humanity’s last chance at being saved. 

Dean kisses Castiel, as Judas kissed Jesus, as his final act of betrayal.

But Dean knows. And Castiel knows. And Team Free Will knows how to rip up the pages of any story long foretold.
