Let’s play “Is it Supernatural or Doctor Who?”
Can we talk about the tree in A very supernatural christmas? The one that sam never wanted in the first place.
The tree that he decorated with car fresheners and plastic balls. The tree that stands on a chair in an old paint bucket. The tree that he only thought would bring bad memories with it.
But that doesn’t matter anymore, because a tree is what dean wanted. He wanted a real christmas this year. So sam tries to give one to him. Because the is exactly what dean had done for him when they were kids.
He buys eggnog, some sad christmas decorations (all probably from the gas station) and fixes and decorates the little tree. He can’t deny it. it looks pretty sad. But he tries to convince himself that it’s the thought that counts.
And he does it all for his brother, and when he sees the way dean looks at it, he thinks to himself that maybe, it isn’t such a bad christmas tree after all.
In case you’re in need of motivation, have some from the Doctor.
You can do it!
Fourteen years ago, a Death Eater named Bellatrix Lestrange used the Cruciatus Curse on my parents. She tortured them for information, but they never gave in. I’m quite proud to be their son.
This hurts. A lot.
One of the scenes that I will never be able to forget from the book is the scene when they’re at the hospital and Neville’s mother comes and gives him the sweet wrapper. She’s been tortured to insanity, but some part of her, some tiny diamond hard fragment of who she was, smothered by the shattered remains of herself remembers her son enough to want to make him smile.
She gives him a present to make him smile, and you just know Neville took that sweet wrapper home with him and put it in a box with all the other random pieces of rubbish she has given to him over the past 14 years.
This is why Neville’s story makes me hurt much more than Harry. Neville’s parents are still there. He can still see them and touch them, but he can never and will never know what they think of him, of what he has become. But no matter what happens, he will do every damn thing he can to be a man they would be proud of. Even if he’s scared, he will be brave because they were.
Re: Neville will never know what they think of him: it’s interesting that Harry, for all he never knew his parents, interacts with them quite a lot for an orphan. Both the Priori Incantatem spell and the Resurrection Stone let Lily and James talk to Harry. They tell him how brave he is and how proud they are and how much they love him.
Neville gets a bubblegum wrapper.
In my F*ck the reality AU no one dies and my favourite characters are buddies - those are the rules
I KNOW THIS IS SUPPOSED TO BE PRETTY AND COOL BUT I CAN’T STOP LAUGHING BECAUSE IT LOOKS LIKE IT’S FLYING UP AND THEN IT DECIDES IT GOING TOO FAR AND TRIES TO TURN AROUND AND IT KEEPS FLOATING AWAY AND ITS SAYING ‘SHIT SHIT SHIT SHIT SHIT SHIT’
