YOU BROUGHT THIS ON YOURSELF
This got even funnier when I realized that to shoot it, essentially someone had to hurl a massive rat puppet at Cary Elwes.
I like to imagine they used a small catapult.
#friendly reminder that the winchesters are actually scary as hell
what if every single spider in the world was just replaced by a cat
i think that’s a world I would love to live in
but imagine finding a cat in your bath
just a wild cat in the bath
I’m pretty sure that just with the sheer number of spiders on earth that if you replaced every one of them with a kitten we would be literally swimming in kittens tho
THAT’S THE OPPOSITE OF A PROBLEM.
But what if the spiders were in small spaces and then turned into kittens and got stuck and everyone would have to go around finding kittens trapped in their garage or stuck on their roof and we’d have to rescue them all
like imagine having the job of going round your neighbourhood searching for trapped kittens and rescuing them
it would be the best job ever
Baelfire/Neal Cassidy Meme: 1/10 Scenes: Manhattan
If I had to pick one moment to show why I love Neal Cassidy, this would be a very strong contender. The last time we saw Rumplestilskin with his son, we had little Baelfire so determined that he could find a way to fix things. He had so much faith that his papa could come back to him— that he’d want to get rid of his dark magic for him, that he’d be enough to pull him out of it. So we see Neal, and he’s older with hundreds of years of anger and resentment and hurt on him, but we get a little glimpse of that 14 year old. He’s pretty sure there’s no way his father could fix this, but there’s a tiny part of him that’s saying okay, fine, try me. Because what if there’s something? What if he was right all of those years ago, and it was possible for his papa to change for him? Maybe, just maybe it could be okay.
And then Rumple’s solution is, of course, magic. Just like it was before. And his face just DROPS. He knew it was going there, he shouldn’t have been surprised, and he’s not, really— but this teeny little part of him is disappointed. He lets himself drop his head and be disappointed for just barely a moment— because he knew better than to get his hopes up for real this time.
That’s so much of why I love this character: he’s so very much rooted in that 14 year old boy who believed in his father, that so very much colors what he does and all of his choices, but he’s grown up. He’s lived through a lot of disappointment and heartache, and he’s understandably fucked up by it— this is Baelfire jaded. But he’s got that shred of hope, that optimism— but it’s tempered with 200 years of character development and it’s just infinitely sad and interesting to me.
You don’t know how hard this made me laugh.
