Then the Lord said to him, “Whoever kills Cain will suffer a sevenfold vengeance.” And the Lord put a mark on Cain, so that no one who came upon him would kill him.
WHERE are they getting this stuff !!
Sam Winchester’s Journal – Entry #52
Sometimes life sends you signs. It can be a series of vague hints here and there that tell you you’re maybe heading in the wrong direction, signals that are so vague they are open to all kinds of interpretation and will mess with your mind until they’re melting your brain. Or it can also be manifestations thrown at your face by fate with the subtlety of a 300-pound defensive lineman trying to cross enemy lines.
"Ragnarok has happened. What comes now, after the death of all things?"

In celebration of another week where we learn nothing about the Mark of Cain!
I told myself I’d do one of these for every episode they ignore it, but that first pic took way too long. I signed up to do art for the Gabriel big bang and the story I claimed has a noir theme so I wanted to practice something before I get to disappoint someone else. Also my tablet cord broke after I did the lines, so there’s that. Loosely inspired by the art in Sin City, which I have not read in far too long.
If they stall for another week, I’m tossing Cas in a dress, too.

This episode is written, on one level, as a substantive knowing commentary on Dean’s queer subtext.
Whilst the entire episode concerns the relationship between Dean and Sam, this review focuses on the subtextual presentation of Dean’s closeted queerness in “#Thinman”.
To begin with, we should note that the Ghostfacers, the nerdy wannabe ghost hunters and online web “stars”, Ed and Harry, whom we first met way back in 1x17 “Hell House”, are associated, in the 3x13 episode “Ghostfacers”, with textual queerness in the history of Supernatural. This is because their storyline in that episode involved a young intern, Corbett, who was killed by a spirit in a haunted house where the Ghostfacers were filming. Corbett’s ghost was eventually talked out of repeating the cycle of luring new victims to their deaths, by Ed, with whom he had secretly been in love. Ed ends the episode by narrating for the Ghostfacers’ weblog that, “Gay love can pierce through the veil of death and save the day.”
We had a mention of “the Veil” just last episode…
shoutout to all the other ex-gifted & talented/honor student/straight a/senior editor/star student/99th percentile/once-creative burn-outs who have, since high school, realized they are truly miniscule fish in a giant, endless ocean, criticized themselves to the point of creative paralysis, and participated in so much self-sabotage they no longer see the point of doing anything at all because they’re just going to ruin it for themselves anyway
this one’s for you
