Not for lack of trying 

Writer’s Relief rejected my submission based on limited markets, but they encouraged me to submit to their short story open submission. Unfortunately, I do not have anything to offer so I have resolved to move on. I didn’t expect to be accepted; they take on less than 2% of all submissions. However, I do appreciate that they took the time to read it, and that they said my writing was strong. Good…

OKAY. LET’S PUT THIS INTO CONTEXT FOR A SEC HERE

  1. SAM, DEAN, AND CAS HAVE BEEN ON A CONFERENCE CALL FOR BLAH BLAH MINUTES TALKING ABOUT TRYING TO STOP THE END OF TIMES AS USUAL
  2. THEN CAS SAYS SOMETHING OFF-TOPIC YET “SO CAS”, AND DEAN RETORTS BY SAYING SOMETHING THAT’S “SO DEAN”, AND THEY BOTH TAKE A MOMENT TO APPRECIATE THAT
  3. WHICH PROMPTS CAS TO ASK, “HOW ARE YOU, DEAN?”
  4. TO WHICH DEAN RESPONDS, “I’M FINE CAS. HOW BOUT YOU?”
  5. AND NOW WE ARE IN CONTEXT

NOW IT’S TIME TO INTERPRET CAS’ ANSWER

  1. CAS HAS BEEN WINGLESS FOR BLAH BLAH MONTHS NOW.
    BUT IT IS ONLY NOW, IN THIS PHONE CALL (canonically, speaking), RIGHT AFTER HE AND DEAN HAVE THAT LITTLE EXCHANGE, THAT HE REVEALS HE MISSES HIS WINGS
  2. AND CAS HASN’T SEEN DEAN IN A LONG TIME
  3. I’D LIKE TO ARGUE, IDEALLY, THAT “WINGS” COULD BE A METAPHOR FOR DEAN (that “on the wings of love, love lifts us up where we belong” crap) OR A METAPHOR FOR HOW THINGS USED TO BE
  4. ON THE BASIS THAT HE AND DEAN ARE FINDING EACH OTHER AGAIN IN THE LITTLE NUANCES OF THEIR CONVERSATION.
  5. DEAN IS HIS WINGS. THEIR RELATIONSHIP IS HIS WINGS. BECAUSE HIS RELATIONSHIP WITH DEAN IS WHAT KEEPS HIM GROUNDED, AND HELPS HIM TAKE FLIGHT.
  6. OR WE COULD ALSO ARGUE THAT IT ISN’T A METAPHOR, BUT RATHER HE REALLY MISSES HIS WINGS ESPECIALLY IN THIS CONTEXT
  7. THAT HE’S ON THE PHONE WITH DEAN AND HE CAN’T JUST RANDOMLY POP UP BEHIND DEAN WHEN DEAN CALLS
  8. SO HE MISSES HIS WINGS BECAUSE BEFORE, ALL HE NEEDED WAS A THOUGHT OR A PRAYER AND HE COULD BE WHERE DEAN WAS, AND NOW HE CAN’T DO THAT ANYMORE
  9. CAS MISSES HIS WINGS BECAUSE HIS WINGS TOOK HIM TO DEAN

If Meta Fiction taught me anything, it’s that Metatron is a terrible writer. All his characters were so OOC. Well, except the bit on the phone between Dean and Cas. But still. OOC.

Really not sure how I feel about Meta Fiction. Bit disjointed and kind of thrown together. Gabriel was nice and all, but nothing pisses readers (or viewers in this case) off more than ‘it’s all an illusion!’ At least, that’s how I feel.

I don’t know. I feel like my passion for the season fizzled after the fandom got its panties in a twist over episode three. Just not as excited about new eps as I used to be.

Horse of a different color 

I want to take the time to discuss writing ethnic characters. It’s the general consensus that all forms of media are dominated by primarily white characters. While I can’t offer explanations as to why that is, I can at least give my stance on it.

I’m a white girl. I grew up in lower middle class working family in a New Jersey town of about 25K. I had white friends, I had Spanish friends, I had…

I don’t understand why the SPN fandom is beside themselves with omg Dean shower scene is so HAWt!!!111eleventyone

Guys, look at him again. He’s not sexy. He’s tired. He’s done. He wants it over. Emotional anguish is definitely not sexy.
