Hallucifer in 7.17 The Born-Again Identity
And society defines the first two as satanic
THERE’S TIMES WHEN I WANT A RUSTIC CABIN IN THE WOODS AWAY FROM ALL SOCIETY
THEN THERE’S TIMES WHEN I WANT A MODERN ASS HOUSE
THEN I’M LIKE I’LL ACCEPT NOTHING MORE THAN A VICTORIAN MANOR
THEN I WANT A PENTHOUSE IN THE MIDDLE OF NEW YORK
THEN I WANT ONE OF THOSE HOUSE MADE OUT SHIPPING CONTAINERS
THEN I WANT A FRENCH CHATEAU
BUT I ALSO WANT A TREE HOUSE
AND A LITTLE COTTAGE ON THE OCEAN
HOUSES ARE SO COOL
I love Aaron Tveit so when I heard about Graceland I was like “oh this’ll be good it’ll be a bunch of hot guys walking around and maybe he’ll like sing in the shower or something” so then I watched it and it’s actually like
OH MY GOD WHAT NONONONONONOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO HE’S GOING TO GET KILLED
OR WORSE EXPELLEDWHY WOULD YOU SEND HIM THERE WHAT ARE YOU DOING MIKE’S LIKE A PUPPY WHY WOULD YOU KILL PUPPIES PLEASE DON’T GET SHOT
aaaand now I won’t sleep again.
That is the best reaction ever.
I just want to take a moment and point out something quite interesting. In “It’s a Terrible Life,” 4.17, Sam and Dean are thrust into an alternate reality where they aren’t brothers, but both work for the same company. Sam is obviously a more home-grown boy, working in IT, while Dean is of a higher-class upbringing, wearing suits and sitting behind a big expensive desk in his own window office.
Now. Here’s where it’s interesting to me - their acting is quite brilliant.
Look at the way they both swing at the ghost. They’ve ‘never done this before’ … at least so far as they know. But they both use their own ‘experience’ from their ‘lives’ to influence how they approach the situation.
Sam swings with a baseball-like arm, suggesting his years of being in summer leagues and playing catch with dad in his American Pie life. His is much more horizontal in the follow through.
Dean, on the other hand, subtly swings with a more golf-like air, suggesting his own interests (Daddy could pay for a set of clubs and lessons, and he obviously plays on his own as an adult, now, because we see him practice in his office). His has an upward-arc that evinces this idea.
It’s these little things about the show that always astound me. How a simple shot showing them gank a ghost can reveal so much character and backstory, even with characters that aren’t really REAL, but fabricated for some angel’s vindictive game.
I love Supernatural.
All I want for Christmas is Aaron Tveit in an FBI vest.

This is my new favorite thing of all time.
