“Harry witnessed Professor McGonagall walking right past Peeves, who was determinedly loosening a crystal chandelier, and could have sworn he heard her tell the poltergeist out of the corner of her mouth, ‘It unscrews the other way.’”
LOTR meme: ♦ 10 Scenes
1. The Grey Havens
"Then Frodo kissed Merry and Pippin, and last of all Sam, and went aboard; and the sails were drawn up, and the wind blew, and slowly the ship slipped away down the long grey firth; and the light of the glass of Galadriel that Frodo bore glimmered and was lost."

Third time reblogging it today, and I regret nothing
Broke 5 Million!

There may come a time when I don’t reblog this post but that day is not this day.
Another thing I didn’t notice until Neven pointed it out in her 9x14 review is just how beautifully this shot was set up. Check out the background, two chairs in front of the fireplace, Cas is taking the place of one of the chairs in the shot, the other one is empty with a glass of whiskey in front of it. On Cas’ side there is a cross, on the other side is a statue in the shape of a man, although I think it might be an angel? Is it cupid? I thought it might have been an archer but I can’t quite tell…
This is so symbolically screaming DEANCAS I don’t even know what to do with myself right now…
I’m pretty sure Jerry Wanek ships it if nothing else… :P
Oh, I’m right there with you about Jerry Wanek shipping it. *G*
Another thing is the roses. The red roses, of course, symbolize passion, and they’re on both sides of the shot.
White roses alone symbolize innocence, but white and red roses in the same arrangement signify unity. So on one side, we’ve got the shot of whiskey that evokes Dean, a cupid, and a bouquet of red and white roses.
On the other side, there’s a cross what looks like an angel, and red roses.
So we’ve got Cas’ choice set up here, just as we do later when he leaves the room.
I make note that the cupid and the glass are on the left side of the frame. We see this same kind of balanced symbolism at the end of the scene when Cas leaves, as well; on the right side of the table is a Bible, while the left side is empty. And which way does Cas choose? The left.
I have some theories about that fireplace, too. Up to this season, it was very rare that we saw a fireplace actually in use. I haven’t really paid attention this season, but now I think I need to go and dust that Aaron and the fireplace meta off, because there are only a handful, up to the end of last season, and we saw them in very particular circumstances. I need to go back and check the fireplaces (neven says there are five before this one, I think) to see if they fit my theory. (This one certainly does, if I’m reading the other things right.)
Here’s my theory. The Harry Potter trio are actually representations of the other houses. Hermione is Ravenclaw. Ron is Hufflepuff. Harry is Slytheryn. They’re all in Gryffindor because they asked. In fact, everyone in that house could have been in another house if they hadn’t asked to be in Gryffindor. You have be ask to be in Gryffindor because their most defining feature is bravery and anyone can choose to be brave.
I fuck with your theory, marry me.
AND PEOPLE HATE THIS GUY.
let that sink in.
IM SO EMOTIONAL ABOUT THIS LIKE…. HE HAS SUCH A TERRIBLE LIFE BUT HE STILL TRIES TO FIND GOODNESS AND HOPE AND I JUST… I WANT TO BE LIKE SAM YA KNOW?
