families I'm in



Sam doesn’t say I love you with words. He wants to — God, he does — but old habits are hard to break. God gave you two ears and one mouth so you can listen twice as much as you speak, they always said, and Sam took it to heart. He always feels like he’s imposing when he speaks too much, so he tends to let his actions speak for themselves.

Cas, on the other hand, says it all the time, uses I love you like he uses salt. He thinks Sam needs to hear it, to know that he’s loved, or else he wouldn’t say it at all. After all, the only models he has to go off are the Winchesters, who tend to hold in all emotions, good or bad. But he likes the way Sam’s face lights up when he says it, how he sits up a little straighter, how he’ll curl into Cas a little closer.

Sam doesn’t need to say it nearly as much as he needs to hear it.


When we live in a world where you can access free content of naked consenting women in less than 5 seconds, why are people still invading the privacy of non-consenting women for nudes?

Hint: It has something to do with people feeling entitled to making any woman their personal porn, even if it violates or humiliates her in the process.

i have promises to keep

        and miles to go before i sleep.

{Castiel’s POV}

I saved him not because God commanded it, but because I wanted his existence to continue. He was re-born by the hands of my selfishness, breaths through my cowardly fear of isolation.

It’s not the most noble thing I’ve ever done, that’s for sure.

But I am warm in his arms and his breath runs hot against my skin. I feel alive and human and whole. He has taken my fallen grace and shaped it into the raw emotion of love and I do not for one passing moment regret my plunge into hell to retrieve his being.


"not a girl

                              — a storm with skin.


I will defend my favorite character faster than myself


the fact that there have no leaked nudes in my dashboard proves that i’m following the right people

yay extra cookie :D


Also, Subway cookies are awesomely delicious anyway, so it was pretty much ten times as good.

The person at subway gave me an extra cookie and I don’t know if it was an accident or not but I really appreciate them either way.
