Sorry, but most teens are kinda messed up. It’s not an issue of ageism - the brain is LITERALLY still developing. Yes, some teens manage to act like adults earlier. Good for them. But when “teenage” is part of the show’s title and iconography, you WANT the stereotypical awkwardness. It’s part of the show’s charm.

This!!!

Dean and Cas asking each other if they are alright!

DEAN AND CAS ASKING EACH OTHER IF THEY ARE ALRIGHT!

(subtext)

OMGOMG grabbing Dean’s hand

littlehollyleaf:

asking ‘what have you done?’ when he sees the Mark!

'damn it, Dean'

This is STRAIGHT OUT OF MY DAYDREAMS I CAN’T BELIEVE IT PERFECTION!

<3

telling Sam to ‘keep an eye on’ Dean!

littlehollyleaf:

TELLING SAM TO ‘KEEP AN EYE ON’ DEAN!

I loved that bit so much!!!

What have you done?

Even though the situation wasn’t real, and it was really vague whether or not Gabe was really back or not (If Metatron is God-like now, then I don’t see why he can’t revive angels), I really loved this moment.

deducedyoufromperdition:

Ok, let’s look back at that now-famous phone call in 9x18, shall we? So here we have the obvious, that being Dean and Cas both becoming visibly more relaxed and uplifted once they start talking to each other, an example of this is shown here;

Now, after this…

So this little surprise was waiting for me when I woke up&#8230;.

Its pretty, but I thought we were finally done with this?!?

Who knew the sight of women eating could cause so much controversy? This week the London-based media has been debating a Facebook group showing just that. With over 21,000 members, the Women Who Eat on Tubes group features candid shots of women using a trip on London’s subway system to catch up with a meal. As the group grew, comments on its pages became more overt in their latent misogyny, as if there was something inherently grotesque in a woman having an appetite and being in need of some food. To make the intrusions greater, the photos’ captions also identified when and on which tube line they were taken, and what the woman was eating, as this journalist who featured on the site learned.
Of course, the group is just one of various candid photo sites currently doing the rounds. It’s not entirely dissimilar to the romanticized images of young women of Buenos Aires Chicas Bondi or its male London equivalent, the tumblr and Twitter account Tubecrush. It also has some kinship with public behavior shaming sites like Singapore’s STOMP – though that wouldn’t exonerate it from charges of creepy intrusion – even though eating on London’s Tube is neither uncommon nor against any particular rule.

Yeah, the site’s owner claims to be celebrating women, but captions a photo of three women eating as “Three Little Pigs”.
Here’s my suggestion for acting like a decent human being when it comes to taking photos of a stranger: Are you comfortable asking them permission to post the photo online? No? THEN DON’T TAKE THE GODDAMN PICTURE AND POST IT, YOU DOUCHECANOE.

This is terrifying. This isn’t just about taking photos of ‘a’ stranger. This is a group culture which aims to punish women for eating.
