Update on the internet fiasco…
The deal with satellite internet (at least in this case) is that they give you a limited amount of bandwidth that can be used. Go over that amount and BOOM! your internet crashes. And, since there are no power or phone lines coming out here since I live under a rock in the middle of the subarctic wilderness (you think I’m joking about this but I’m not. Well, except for the part about the rock).
Anyway, the point is
dolphins that I now have internet back but it’s pretty limited for the time being. And my ability to go somewhere that has better internet access is also limited seeing as I have no car as it was smashed all to Hell in an intersection in Wisconsin last month and between the three of us housemates we have one car.
The good news is, I’m going to pick up my new ride next week, so after that, things should be a whole lot better and I should be back in business.
In the meantime, PLEASE send me links to all the good post-8.23 fic, meta and art that I’ve missed!
PS - I’ve been working on some meta of my own so look for that over the next few days! :)
So, um, regarding my recent radio silence…
My post-SPN finale online excitement actually crashed the internet service at my house and I’ve been too busy to remedy this.
So rest assured that I WILL be back once I get the problem taken care of but I’m not sure exactly when that time will be.
Sadly, this has barred me from my usual pursuit of all the great post-episode meta and fic. So if my followers have any of this kind of stuff to reccoment, PLEASE send me links in my askbox so that I can read it when I am able to be online more than just briefly.
Thanks, and sorry for my temporary absence. I’ll be back when I can.
TWO SEPARATE CONVERSATIONS ARE HAPPENING HERE.
- Dean thinks Cas is going back to Heaven for good, “locking the door behind him”, and is worried about Cas’s safety since the angels aren’t too happy with him.
- Cas, on the other hand, is thinking about how he’s going to “lock the door behind him” as he leaves Heaven, and how he couldn’t possibly stay because the angels want him dead.
Dean’s lines are ambiguous enough in meaning that Cas doesn’t realize what Dean was thinking until he says the E.T. line, which is when Cas pulls the confused face (which Dean just sees as Cas not getting the reference). They cupid shows up before anyone can elaborate.
TL;DR: CAS WAS PLANNING ON STAYING AFTER HE CLOSED HEAVEN AND DEAN DIDN’T EVEN REALIZE IT
Ooh I like this theory a lot.
Although I think Cas intended to stay in Heaven and try to fix it?
That’s an interesting and different take on the scene. Aw man, I like both readings equally…
In the end, neither Metatron nor Naomi were truly allies of humanity and angels, nor truly villains. Both believed to the core of their being that they were doing what was right, however atrocious and horrific their actions were.
In the end, Metatron was a bit more overtly sadistic and malicious, Naomi was portrayed a bit more sympathetically but both characters have left a trail of manipulation and destruction.
In the end, I cannot forget what Naomi did to Heaven and the angels but I will never, NEVER forgive Metatron for killing her.
But, in the end, neither was really good, neither was really evil. The big difference was what they fought for - Metatron fought for his personal freedom and safety, Naomi fought to keep Heaven intact…
