everyone shut up it’s time to talk abt jack’s birthday
bc i’m a narcissist this is what happens canonically in my tmatd-verse (post s5 fix it feat. dean and cas parenting claire, saving sammy, raising chickens, and adopting the antichrist) but like. don’t let me limit you this happens however u want it to happen
right so anyway :)
dean and sam insist on it being star wars themed. “it’s his fourth birthday! may the fourth! we have to” “his birthday is may eighteenth” “BUT HE’S TURNING FOUR SO IT STILL WORKS CAS”
jack gets to wear an ahsoka costume and he’s over the moon about it
claire buys him a lightsaber. she thinks it’s hilarious when he gets so excited he unintentionally uses his baby nephilim powers to actually light it up
queue the loud voices of three (3) panicking dads as they all rush forward to make sure it can’t actually hurt anyone
he probably has a minor meltdown here because he thinks he’s in trouble and or that he’s going to get his new favorite toy taken away but like. he’s four it’s expected. and sam lets jack "stab” him with the lightsaber which cheers him up instantly
it’s only family at this specific party, but jack is a well-loved kid and his family is HUGE, so he’s thrilled by the turn out
however about an hour in sam notices that jack has taken two (2) pieces of cake and sat down with them. when he asks who the second piece is for, jack beams and excitedly tells him “my new friend sully! he says hello”
the movie he chooses for everyone to watch is shrek, and this makes claire ENDLESSLY delighted. he sits in her lap and giggles every time she quotes along with the movie
dinner is pizza, because “it’s his birthday dammit the kid will be fine if he eats saturated fats just this once”. his favorite is cheese pizza because he’s four, but claire lets him take a bite of her pineapple pizza and he ADORES it
jack’s only a little sleepy by the time everyone leaves, and he’s four now so he’s a big kid and he can stay up a bit later he promises, so his dads and his sister all gather around him and let him set up one last game of tea party before he’s tucked in for the night. he’s got on dinosaur pajamas and a tiara and fairy wings and cowboy boots and cas can’t help but take a thousand pictures of him
not one of them complains when jack dresses them up for the tea party, too
he only makes it about halfway through before he climbs up onto dean and starts nodding off
in the morning his pajamas will be just a little too short because the kid is still just growing so damn fast, and he’ll beg them to let him eat cake for breakfast and become the world’s grumpiest child for a day, and they’ll spend the next week trying to stop him from turning his lightsaber real again but
tonight he’s tucked in by the people who love him the most in this entire world, and he’s got a spot of dried pizza sauce on his cheek that everyone missed, and there’s the faint golden-warm glow that he gets every time he goes to sleep happy. tonight each of his dads and his sister presses a kiss to the top of his head, and they all take a bit of that warmth with them too

Just had this happen with someone, so I'm gonna say it real loud for the people in the back.
It is not okay to tell someone they are taking a trigger too seriously.
It is ableist to tell someone they're being irritating by telling you that they're uncomfortable, especially if they have done so before and you have refused to change your behavior.
Someone deadass told me it was annoying that I mentioned being uncomfortable with a type of conversation every time that kind of conversation happened. It's almost like that kind of conversation makes me horribly uncomfortable.
I am so tired. If this has had to happen multiple times, maybe the person who's having the panic attack isn't the problem. Maybe you should have taken steps to ensure this kind of situation didn't happen again. Especially if you're a moderator who's supposed to keep people from getting uncomfortable, and not villainize them for showing the ugly side of their mental illness.

Ok I'm seeing a lot of anti Israel posts right now. I've never been vocal about it and I usually see fandom as the hideout from all the problems in my country but I feel like I should weight in with my experience as someone who lives in Israel.
I'm not the government, in fact I disagree with the current government and want it gone. I'm just a person. That said, my country's being attacked by rockets right now. Two days ago a rocket hit a house on the same street a block away from my friend's appartement. The person who lived there died. It could have been her and I don't know how to deal with that.
I'm not downplaying the loses of the Palestinians. Each death I hear about strikes me to the core. And I know there were many. But you have to understand that the Israeli army's goal is to protect the citizens. The army targets weaponry and Hamas personnel, the people who order the strike of rockets on Israel. It doesn't actively seek to harm civilians. In fact, it tries to minimize it as much as possible. I implore you to think, why would Israel even seek harming civilians ? What would we gain? We're trying to stop the rockets being shot on our people. The problem is, Gaza is densely populated and Hamas in fact takes advantage of that and hides it's weapons in civilian buildings. What would you do in that situation?
I don't have anything against the Palestinian people. I want peace. But Hamas wants me dead. I don't know what to do about that.

my internet experience improved so much when i realized that i can just... block people
like you can just do that. you don’t need to argue with biggots. you can just block them and be done with it. and you don’t even need a “good” reason. someone is slightly annoying about disagreeing with your headcanon? you can block them. someone’s vibes are off and you don’t know why? block them. you don’t like the colors of a blog? block them. you don’t even need any reason, really, if you just feel like blocking a person, do it.
this is your blog, you should have fun with it. you don’t need to interact with anyone unless you actively want to
