I guess this is where I put the about me crap, but let's be honest you don't wanna know and most of you won't even look at this wee box at the side.
Those of you who do however, hi! How's your day? Feel free to ask me anything you'd like
I don’t understand why people are getting so angry. It’s meant to show how far gone demon!Dean is, how different he is. Of course we’re supposed to be upset about it- anyone who loves the brothers is going to be sad & angry- but that’s the whole point.
Remember the Sam & Dean hug from Exile on Main Street in season 6? How Sam’s face looked during that hug? It was hard to watch because the second you saw how nonchalant he was being and how blank his face looked, you knew he wasn’t our Sam. This is very similar. It’s a way to show the viewers that this isn’t the Dean you know and love.
Yes to all of this. I think we were idealizing demon!Dean during hiatus and pictured him as a funny-devil-may-care-dean. But he is not. the things that makes him who he is, the care, the love, the gentle heart, is gone now. This isn’t the Dean we love, that has both his inner demons and his wonderful character. this is Dean who has only his inner demons, and this is going to hurt. and I think we will want him to become human again pretty quick (I know I am) that doesn’t mean his story arc will end, they still need to figure out the mark, but his demonic time, I really wish will be over quickly.
I feel that anyone who believes Romeo & Juliet is about some kind of Great and Timeless Love TM* needs to see this.
WE WERE JUST TALKING ABOUT THIS TODAY IN MY SHAKESPEARE CLASS.
If you go and actually read what Romeo says to Benvolio in the first scene, you will realize that he is only upset because HE WANTED ROSALINE’S BODY AND SHE SAID NO AND SO ROMEO WAS MOPING AND PITCHING A FIT ABOUT IT. Then, the second he lays eyes on Juliet, he’s basically saying
During the balcony scene, Romeo talks about how he scaled the wall of the garden to see Juliet. That is not romantic. That is disrespectful to her. This is a private area of the Capulet home, and Capulet built the wall around it to protect his daughter. This was a time when a woman’s virtue was the most important thing she owned. If Juliet was found with a man in this very private part of her home, everyone would think she was no longer a virgin, her reputation would be ruined, and it would be much harder, if not impossible, for her father to make a good marriage.
Speaking of good marriages, Count Paris is seen as the bad guy because he “comes between” Romeo and Juliet. Capulet had arranged for Paris to marry Juliet in 2 years time, when she would be 16, in a time when most women were already married and mothers by the time they were Juliet’s age at (almost but not quite) 14. Most fathers would have already had their daughters married by now, but he wants to wait two more years AND PARIS IS OKAY WITH THAT. Not only that, but Paris is young (her father could have had her married to a 60 year old man), titled (he’s a fucking Count), wealthy (again, he’s a count, which means Juliet will have financial stability), and, from what we see of him, he is a very good guy. Capulet could have done a LOT worse in choosing his son-in-law.
Finally, here’s something to consider: Juliet was 13, Romeo was 17. Their relationship lasted 3 days, defied their parents, and ended in the deaths of 6 people.
If I ever hear you say that Romeo and Juliet is the greatest love story ever told, I will bitch slap you.
That is all.
THANK YOU! SOMEBODY FINALLY PUT IT IN WORDS FOR ME
It wasn’t a romance. Shakespeare never wrote romances. It was a fucking tragedy you dumb cunts.
