the night that jesus of nazareth was born, a star shone over a manger in bethlehem, and angels descended from heaven to sing their praises to the people of earth, and to celebrate: rejoice, for a savior is born, gloria in excelsis Deo.
the night that dean winchester was born was a much calmer, much more somber affair. the trumpets still sounded, but heaven tilted on its axis, and michael’s attention was drawn to earth. it was not a night for celebration.
but on the day of sam winchester’s birth, there was no resounding glory, no praise, no hosannahs. there was the single, sad note of a solitary trumpet, and then only the drums of war.
a footsoldier of the third sphere looked to the sky of the eternal tuesday afternoon, and listened, the sound and the beat forever imprinted in his memory.
(they say that the demons who hid in the nooks and crannies of brimstone and suffering could hear the drums, too - they closed their eyes and began to pray. six months later, a single wise man would be led to a cradle by the star of morning.)
the day that the footsoldier met the boy king for the very first time, he heard the drums again - only this time, it wasn’t drums, but the pulse of sam’s blood, his sticky sickly tainted blood beating a drum under his skin and in his eyes and in castiel’s heart
and castiel sank to his knees, uttering hosannahs long overdue, praises falling from his lips

a kid from my school sent me a pic an elaborate painting of atticus finch shirtless smoking a blunt while a colt 45 is being poured on him along with a text that read “hot dad 2: dad harder” and this is the closest thing to a sext I have ever received
You neglected to mention the Tupac and Biggie cherubs how dare you.
look there’s a lot going on here it makes perfect sense that they’d forget some details
Did my heart love till now? For I ne’er saw true beauty till this night.
Hello friends, I would like some help
I’m revising my graphic novel draft right now and there’s a couple things I’d like to change:
One of my characters, Roxie, has a Chinese mom and a Nigerian dad. Both her parents are exorcist wizards by profession and super adept at putting away demons, which makes her the expert at demon behavior of the trio of wizard friends.
I’m afraid I’ve only touched on her Chinese side and not her Nigerian side so if anyone has a Nigerian parent and a Chinese parent or Nigerian parents, please feel free to shoot me a message or an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) and tell me a story about your folks, something you’d like to see represented more in media. I can’t guarantee your story will make it into the final cut of the graphic novel when it gets published but I want to be able to keep it in mind bc I want to do my best wrt representation. I’ve already asked a few friends for ideas but I would like some more.
preface"The story arc of Battlestar Galactica is set in a distant star system, where a civilization of humans live on a group of planets known as the Twelve Colonies. In the past, the Colonies had been at war with a cybernetic race of their own creation, known as the Cylons. The Cylons launch a sudden sneak attack on the Colonies, laying waste to the planets and devastating their populations. Out of a population numbering in the billions, only approximately 50,000 humans survive, most of whom were aboard civilian ships that avoided destruction. Of all the Colonial Fleet, the eponymous Battlestar Galactica appears to be the only military capital ship that survived the attack. Under the leadership of Colonial Fleet officer Commander William “Bill” Adama, the Galactica and its crew take up the task of leading the small fugitive fleet of survivors into space in search of a fabled refuge known as Earth.”notesThe show order goes: original mini series (which serves as the BSG pilot), season 1, season 2, BSG: the Resistance webisodes (optional), season 3, BSG: the Face of the Enemy webisodes (optional), the Razor mini series, season 4.0, and then season 4.5. After BSG concluded, a prequel series called Caprica was made, but it’s not essential watching for the main BSG show. It is honestly one of my favorite shows of all time and I really hope you give it a chance. It’s also on Netflix Instant watch!
