Andrew Dabb, who wrote both these episodes, said on the season 8 DVD that he honestly believes the Road Runner cartoons are a statement on man’s pursuit of God

In Reichenbach Cas woke up to a Road Runner cartoon and then shared a touching moment with a human child. Maybe he’s ready to stop chasing the divine and join humanity

I just realized the motel room in Hunteri Heroici is decorated in the colors of a Road Runner cartoon. A+ to Jerry Wanek for expressing the cartoon theme of the episode without making it look childish

OK so I can’t be the only person who was a little bit sceptical when Jared said (at Torcon) that Gadreel talked in iambic pentameter (“I bet he just talks in iambs but not in petameter,” I thought) (OH MAN I AM SUCH A GEEK) - but turns out I was being unfair. He only does it in Holy Terror and Road Trip, the two episodes where Gadreel’s true identity has been revealed: but all the lines above are taken from those episodes and all of them are lines of iambic pentameter (there are more but the gifset was getting too long).

[Hopefully this explanatory section isn’t too obnoxious, as everybody everywhere in the world has to do Shakespeare at school (and why not, he’s awesome) so you probably know this; but in case you needed your memory jogged:

Poetry written in iambic pentameter is written in lines of five two-syllable feet (called ‘iambs’). The first syllable is unstressed and the second syllable is stressed: for example, the word ‘comPARE’ makes up an iamb because in natural English speech you stress the second syllable. Shakespeare uses this metre a lot, e.g. ‘Shall I compare you to a summer’s day’.

In the gifs I’ve put stressed syllables in red. If you read the lines stressing those syllables, you should find that fits with the natural cadence of the words.

Jared’s performance of the lines doesn’t always stress those syllables with complete regularity - for example, he says ‘But Metatron, would that not make YOU God?’ - but that’s just good reading. If everybody read iambic pentameter with repetitive, exaggerated emphasis it would sound really boring and unnatural. OK, end of English class!]

This. This is all correct.

I AM EMOTIONALLY COMPROMISED RIGHT NOW.

The other day, after watching Reichenbach, I went looking for meta post on tumblr and I run up against this beautiful piece by crossroadscastiel. Needless to say I got inspired.

“Crowley was pulling Dean toward Hell as Hannah was pulling Cas toward Heaven, probably certain that once Cas had grace again he would return to Heaven with her where she believes they belong. It’s all in or all out, and there’s no middle ground in their eyes. At the same time, Crowley expects Dean to reject humanity completely and accept he’s a demon who needs to kill to live.
If Dean and Cas are currently walking down the same road, only from completely opposite ends, it would stand to reason that, at some point, they will meet in the middle.”

I like the slash, and I think I like it because I feel there are so many people who are under-represented—or not represented at all—in mainstream Hollywood entertainment. I really enjoy the fan fiction that embraces character and themes that showcase those people—their love, their desires, their passions. I think that’s really cool—and I hope the show as it continues embraces that more, because that’s an opportunity to tell stories that other people might not be familiar with. I mean, there’s slash of me and Ichabod… that’s like, ‘What?!’ and then I read it and it was really well-written. I get it—it’s another way to go but it’s no less valid than what we’re doing and it’s certainly interesting, so I really get a kick out of that. To read fan fiction and to see fan art and to watch other people’s artistry paint different colors on top of what we’re doing… how can you be mad at that? That’s just completely awesome!
