fics that aren’t blatantly bad, just good enough that you get hooked with the plot before you hit all the “no no no they wouldn’t have said that no absolutely not, not that way, not in that tone; why is he doing that; I don’t understand how you could interpret that character this way whether they’re secondary or not; in what universe is that a believable course of action; what is proper dialogue punctuation” like the equivalent of fanfiction speedbumps

“WHY DO THEY ALWAYS SLICE THEIR PALM TO GET BLOOD. do you know how many nerve endings are in your hand?!?! why don’t they ever cut the back of their arm or their leg or something omfg”—
me everytime a character in a movie has to get a few drops of their blood for some ritual bullshit (via jtoday)
WHILE WE’RE AT IT, why do people try to cross those skinny bridges over lava/chasms/whatever by walking upright. IT’S CALLED CENTER OF GRAVITY. get on your hands and knees and crawl across that thing. HUG IT. SCOOT YOUR BUTT ACROSS. “but i look stupid!” lalalala but we’ll avoid that ~dramatic moment~ where you almost fall over and die because your damn fucking self wanted to look COOL
i hope one day you are at peace with yourself. i hope you can take a shower without crying and you can close your eyes without thinking about your funeral. i hope one day you start singing in the shower again and are happy for no reason. i hope you get better, because you really deserve to.
“[re Misha directing, did he ask you any advice, and can you tell us more about the pie in the face pranks?] I don’t know what you’re talking about. As far as advice, he and I sat down to dinner, this was maybe a couple of weeks before he was supposed to stop prepping, and I unloaded on him as much advice as I could think of that I would have wanted someone to tell me and some advice I did actually get before I shot “Weekend at Bobby’s” and Misha promptly whipped out his phone and writing notes, so I don’t know if any of those things helped him, or whether he was just writing an email to someone and not listening to me, I don’t know. So yeah I just tried to tell him as much as possible, give him kind of an idea of what to expect, but the thing is, you can give someone as much advice as you can possibly give them, and it seems to all either get washed away or be pushed aside because either instinct or personality take over. Luckily, Misha’s a smart guy and he’s also surrounded by people who really know the show and the crew who love him, and the support system he had going, which is the same support system I had going, helped him navigate any treacherous turns.”—Jensen Ackles (x)
“For a long time there was a lot of different storylines going on, mostly revolving around Sam and what the story was doing to Sam. Although a lot of it could be said that it was being seen through Dean’s perspective, the story was always kind of about Sam and what was going on internally with him. So it’s an interesting kind of switch to now have Dean really fighting the demons inside…I am enjoying the fact that it’s something different for him to do.”—Jensen Ackles (x)
