Cas buys a radio.
That’s the first thing in their home. It sits on the kitchen counter, playing softly at all times of the day, music even when nobody is home. Dean figures it’s like a replacement for the angels he can no longer hear.
It puts him at ease most of the time, being able to hear something when the house is otherwise silent, but sometimes it only serves to make his mood worse; a constant reminder of what he lost, of the wings that he no longer has. He’ll slump over the kitchen table at these times, the volume of the radio turned down to almost nothing.
Dean is the most awkward human being on the face of the fucking planet when it comes to this sort of thing, but Cas looks like he might start bawling any second, and it makes Dean’s heart clench.
He knows the song playing; he’s pretty sure, from what he can hear. Quietly, he makes his way across the kitchen to turn the volume up to an audible level. Cas knows he’s there, of course, but doesn’t lift his head.
Gently as he can, Dean places his hands on Cas’ shoulders, wraps them around him, and presses a kiss to his hair, whispering the words against his temple.
“When the night has come
And the land is dark
And the moon is the only light we’ll see
No I won’t be afraid, no I won’t be afraid
Just as long as you stand, stand by me”
He can’t sing worth a damn, but Castiel is turning, sitting up straighter to stare at Dean with wide, curious eyes.
Dean doesn’t think about what he’s doing, just pulls him up, both hands on his waist as he sways them both. Cas grabs at his shoulders for balance, continuing to stare like he has no idea who Dean is or what is happening.
“And darlin’, darlin’, stand by me, oh now now stand by me
Stand by me, stand by me”
It’s the lyrics of the song, but being called ‘darling’ makes Cas blush. It’s fucking adorable.
Dean is murmuring them now, resting his forehead against Cas’, voice so soft only Cas can hear.
“If the sky that we look upon
Should tumble and fall
And the mountains should crumble to the sea
I won’t cry, I won’t cry, no I won’t shed a tear
Just as long as you stand, stand by me”
Cas is moving his hands now, stroking Dean’s face, petting his hair, shutting his eyes and breathing against his lips.
“And darlin’, darlin’, stand by me, oh stand by me
Stand by me, stand by me, stand by me, yeah
Whenever you’re in trouble won’t you stand by me, oh now now stand by me
Oh stand by me, stand by me, stand by me
Darlin’, darlin’, stand by me, stand by me
Oh stand by me, stand by me, stand by me”
When they kiss, a brief touch of lips, Dean rubbing their noses together with as much affection as he can muster, the song fades out, Cas replays Dean’s voice, and he swears he hears angels singing in his head.

I want that tie.
#in which Bruce Banner finally finds somebody who isn’t afraid to kid around with him #because he has a sense of humour after all #’i’m sorry, that was mean’ anyone? #but everybody tiptoes around him because ‘oh shit, he’s a monster’ #but then he meets Tony #someone who’s not afraid to be around him #someone who might actually be a friend #and that means so much to him and permeates so deep that even when he’s the fucking Hulk he still wants to save Tony’s ass #because by not treating the Hulk like a monster, Tony stopped him from being one
#SCIENCE BRO FEELS
#because by not treating the Hulk like a monster, Tony stopped him from being one
A little something for all those Pepper haters out there.
I’m calling it: What Movie Were YOU Watching???
includes fascinating portrayals of casual drug use at house parties, how the author/protagonist had conversations about post-punk while seeing his mate’s band perform at some shitty small venue, internal monologues about consumerism while observing people in a mall and that time when the protagonist had an epiphany about living in the moment while walking in the rain
According to the animators for Flynn, he’s meant to be 26 years old, thus making him 8 years older than Rapunzel, who is 18 in the film - the largest age gap between any other Disney couple.
Kida’s 8,800-ish with Milo’s 32, that’s… an 8,768 year age gap?
Can we just appreciate that Milo’s reaction is basically how tumblr girls feel about the men they stalk?
I CAN’T EVEN DENY IT OH MY GOD
The trick is to not let people know how really weird you are until it’s too late for them to back out.
THIS IS THE MOST ADORABLE THING I HAVE EVER SEEN *wheeze*
