Comparing Dean's confrontation with a crossroad demon in AHBL2 to Sam's confrontation with a crossroad demon in IKWYDLS:

Crossroad DealsCollapse )

"Yes" to Michael

Even more thoughts on Point of No Return!

I'm thinking of this line from Dean: “And when Satan takes you over, there's got to be somebody there to fight him, and it ain't gonna be that kid. So, it's got to be me.”

On Saying YesCollapse )


Demon Blood and Demon Women

In a previous entry, I talked about Dean's lack of belief in Sam in Point of No Return. I wrote, "Whether one agrees with Dean about Sam or not (and I disagree with his arguments but not his conclusion - remember, Sam does say 'yes' to Lucifer), you can't argue with how Dean feels, with what faith he has or doesn't have."

I wanted to go into a little more detail about what I meant by agreeing with Dean's arguments but not his conclusions. Let's start with Dean's explanation of why he doesn't believe in Sam: "I don’t know whether it’s gonna be demon blood or some other demon chick or what, but…I do know they're gonna find a way to turn you.[...]You’re angry, you’re self-righteous. Lucifer's gonna wear you to the prom, man. It's just a matter of time."

One of the many, many, many accusations that has been flung at Yoko Ono over the years is that she was responsible for getting John Lennon addicted to heroin.

Cold TurkeyCollapse )

Say You're Happy Now

I happened to glance at a piece of Buffy meta the other week. It argued that Once More With Feeling was a musical tragedy staged like a musical comedy. This brought to mind some thoughts I've had about the episode. Which is to say, I don't think OMWF is a tragedy.

Life"s Not a SongCollapse )

I Don't Believe

I've heard Dean's behavior in Point of No Return characterized as him being horrible to Sam, by claiming he's going to kill himself because Sam is so awful. It is true that Dean makes that statement, but before dubbing Dean horrible I want to point out exactly what he says and when.

In YouCollapse )


Sam: How could you do that?
Dean: How could I? All you’ve ever done is run away.
Sam: And I was wrong. Every single time I did.

Sam"s weird mixture of self-loathing and confidenceCollapse )

What Should I Read?

A question for you all: What book should I read next?

I like history. I like fantasy. I like a lot of things that I don't expect to like. I like nonfiction with narrators who are opinionated and compassionate, but don't play games with facts or engage in shifty arguments in order to back up on opinion.

Make me recommendations, please! If you aren't sure what I would like, tell me what you like, and why. I can't promise that I will read it, but I might.
