Picspam Reaction: Supernatural 6.18
This is gonna be a rushed one, sadly *shakes fist at work schedule and other weekend demands*

Contains speculation, profanity, capslock, speculation...

... and a lot of muttering and possibly spoilers regarding a much-reglected WIP I have called "Between a Quantum Rock and a Hard Place." Also maybe some spoilers for future parts, whenever I manage to get them up. Sigh. I figured a Doctor Who crossover would be pretty Kripke-proof, but nooooooo. :-P

Spoiler and Theory Summary

[REDACTED- HEY, WAIT, THIS IS THE EPISODE!! No redaction this time!]

Dean and Sam go back in time to the old west to find a spell or ritual of some kind. Horses, hats, six-guns, shootouts at high noon, etc. Probably meet Samuel Colt, possibly cause The Colt to be made. Causal loops, they're not just for breakfast anymore. *shushes Quantum Rock plot-bunny and pats consolingly*

It was certain, as soon as Show brought in the potentiality of time travel, this day had to come. As a result, depending how close or far away from the point-form plans I've got on my hard drive for Quantum Rock, there may or may not be spoilers for that story in this reaction post. If one particular character shows up in any capacity, there will be shrieking I tell you. SHRIEKING. And I just bet they're going to do a retcon to account for the two missing Colt bullets, too. DAMMIT. Sigh.

Back in time also potentially means dead demons of yore could show up in the old west and discover that they need to have a grudge against the Winchester bloodline. I'd love to see YED show up, have no idea who Sam and Dean are, get his ass kicked down Colt's Wyoming gate, and have spent all the years in Hell with a festering hate-on for the Winchester line, thus making them agents of their own fate or something. Anyway, that's speculation.

So, given that the paradox rules have been in essence turned off, per Balthazar last episode, we could be heading into a temporal physics hairball for the end of the season if someone gets the bright idea of stopping things before they start, or killing certain entities before they start causing major problems. *bounces with glee*

All right! Let's watch everyone's old west AU's get Kripked! \o/

Picspam Reaction, with speculation and randomness for Supernatural 6.18 - ??? Save a Horse, Ride a Frontierland

I'm going to be doing a bit of blithering about My WIP Fic, and so as not to bore or annoy people who don't care about it, I'll be setting notes that apply only to Quantum Rock in little curly brackets so they can be skipped by the disinterested, which at this stage is likely most of you.

-Most THEN's are about 1:05 long. Handy factiod for those inclined to skip.

-Well howdy there Cold Oak, South Dakota! See, right there is where Sam bumped into Andy, and between those two buildings is a door marked "Cobbler". I'd recognize you anywhere! Are you still full of little girl demons and the corpses of YED's Special kids? *glances location card* Ohh, suuure. 'Sunrise, Wyoming'. That's your stripper name, isn't it? *winks*
Photo 1

-Seriously though, Sunrise, back at the end of Season one was the name of the apartment building John was held in, and the last word Meg said, and Wyoming is where the Devil's Gate is at, so, yeah, all hands in for Colt shenanigans.

-Half an hour later and I'm only 9 seconds in. Oh god tomorrow is gonna suck.

-March 5, 1861. Ah, so about 26 years after Colt built the gun. All together now: "In 1835, Samuel Colt built a special gun." I can't listen to Carry on My Wayward Son without sticking in that voiceover. Sometimes really loudly if I'm alone in the car. So! Maybe not building the Colt, maybe building the Wyoming Gate.

(Ooo, I see Futhark runes, I think!)

-Phoenix ashes. And hello new spell component and quest item.

-More research montage! \o/

Photo 20

-DOOOOOOD! COLT'S HUNTER BOOK OF WEIRD CRAP!!! \o/ Dean totally just rolled a critical success on his research skill!
Photo 21
Photo 22
Photo 23

-"Dude, no!"/"Dude, yes!" *gleeeeee*

-"We'll Star Trek Four this bitch." *laughs insanely and claps* Oh, Dean, your Trekkie-ness is totally out of the closet, you adorable geek you.

-"I only watched Deep Space Nine." BWAH!!! There's a fic prompt. If it was Voyager, I'd say he was in it for the Janeway. XD
Photo 24

-Teleplay by Dabb and Loflin. Did I miss the Story credit? Nope, Dabb, Loflin and Jackson Stewart, who I believe is new. Directed by Guy Bee.

-*chokes on tea* Does Castiel have a PA now, or did he just do a body-swap on Dean's request? O.o
Photo 25

-"I'm his friend."/"And we're not?"/"I think you call him when you need something." True, lately, and after that big pile of very bad lying Castiel did at the end of last episode, I can see why he'd want to send a stand-in. Less likely they'll question him if he's not there.

-"You petty, entitled little-" Rachel has some human issues apparently.
Photo 26

-Hi Castiel! Guess the threat of getting questioned about who really unsank the Titanic was over-powered by the need not to have your stand-in give the Winchesters an earful.

-Lieutenant Rachel. Cool. I'd guess we'll be seeing her again at some point when we get that impending GIANT INFO DUMP OF WHAT THE HELL CASTIEL'S BEEN UP TO ALL SEASON. Yes. War. But DETAILS? I'm getting nervous that Castiel might suddenly turn out to be next season's big bad or something, the amount of run-around and minimal info we've been getting. Assuming there is a next season. Don't tell me.

-"The answer to your question can best be expressed as a series of partial differential equations." Aaaaahhahahahahaahahahah! I knew taking calculus wasn't a waste of time. I could talk time travel mechanics with angels... if I remembered anything from Calculus class.
Photo 27

-"We are goin' native." Oh dear. This is going to be ridiculous. *sets down drink*
Photo 28

-Dean can recite Clint Eastwood movies. "His name is Clyde." Oh dear. This definitely doesn't bode well. As demonstrated by Sam's face. XD
Photo 29

-"At least wear the damn shirt." If there is a fringe, I may never stop laughing. {*senses imminent Kripkeing of a large part of 'things the OC will not shut up about' in Quantum Rock, which might be a good thing or a very bad thing, as it's partly a kick-off point for larger events...* Sigh}

-Machine-stiched embroidery and a poncho straight out of... some Clint Eastwood movie that got referenced in Back to the Future. Nearly as bad as a fringe. Is that the infamous Texas belt buckle on Sam? And Dean grinning like he hasn't had the opportunity to dress up like a cowboy since he was four. Which, given the implications of Halloween changed drastically along with everything else after Mary died, is probably true. Aw. And he finally got a chance to dress Sammy up like a cowboy too. AWWWWWWW.
Photo 30

-Serape, not poncho. Okay then. Still machine stitched and with some kind of weird thing going on at the neck. Do these guys not know any re-enactors or people in the SCA that they could... tell they were traveling back in time... to get the ashes of a phoenix... yeaaaah. Not so much. Still, Google? Wikipedia? Gamer forums?

-Gold! Yep. take out the bits and melt it first though, because that watch will bake a few old west noodles. Wrist watches didn't become popular until the 1920's, never mind the assorted technical bits lurking inside that thing.
Photo 31

-Yeah, that pearl-handled automatic isn't anachronistic at alllll. It's only going to be the 1890's before any kind of automatics are available.
Photo 32

-"See ya at high noon tomorrow *wink* pardner." Oh dear. Someone's squee is going to get so very harshed, isn't it. And there's a lovely eye roll from Bobby.
Photo 33
Photo 34

-The past is sepia-toned. I love it. XD
Photo 35

-Um. Pft. Yeah. They couldn't dig up a pocket watch? *facepalm* I suppose they should get some slack, they are outside their natural genre here, between the time travel and the old west. They're horror characters. There's gotta be minuses for that.
Photo 36

-"You know what that is?"/"Yeah it's horseshi-"/"Authenticity." Hehehehehe!

-"You're gonna burn for this. Every one of ya." Is this not the guy Dean was dueling in the pre-title sequence? In which case, he's either not dying here, or he's the phoenix. The noose in the pre-title sequence didn't look burnt though, so... dunno. I guess there are worse last words than a blatant attempt to freak the crap out of the people executing you. *ponders*
Photo 37

-"Nice blanket." Hee. Do not base your historical research on Clint Eastwood movies. You will be mocked.
Photo 38

-Still, a blanket is a blanket. No need to throw it away (and contaminate the past with anachronistic and possibly acrylic fiber samples). {Quantum Rock bunny is glaring at me so damn hard, because when I ever get the next chapter up, certain parts will seem like a direct reaction to this episode, but really they've all been written down since 2008. Arg.}

-Marshall Eastwood. Fakest badge Dean Winchester has ever carried, and that would include any he might have carried on his cowboy costume from when he was four.
Photo 39

-"This here's Walker." Oh god. "Texas Ranger." Oh god. *headdesk*

-"You're very clean." That too. Machine laundry. Not going to be around for a very long time, especially this far out of cities.

-"I'll have your top shelf whiskey."/"Only have the one shelf." *snickers*

-Elkins. Oh wow. Elkins. As in ancestor of DANIEL Elkins, the one who had the Colt in 2005. Oh wow. Hi continuity! Let me buy you a goddamn drink! \o/

-"Rumor says he's building a railroad a few miles out of town out by the postal road, in the middle of nowhere." Heh, heh, heh. Yeah. A great big star-shaped railroad. *rolls in the continuity*

-Sepia suits them.
Photo 40
Photo 41

-Hi undead phoenix guy! And dead judge. Yep. Hunh. Left the upper body bones, but completely obliterated the bones of the lower anatomy. Odd.
Photo 42
Photo 43


-"Maybe we're not looking for a flaming bird, maybe the phoenix is actually walking around in cowboy boots." ...and his name is Finch. Which is a kind of bird. Ha ha ha. That's practically painful, that is.
Photo 44

-"I'm a posse magnet." *grins* I see so many icons in that quote's future.

-"Make that into a t-shirt." Sure, Why not? XD Sam is having a good night for faces.
Photo 45

-HORSES!!! :-D Had to happen. Heeee! And they traded a wristwatch for it. To a blacksmith at least, so there's a better chance he'll melt the thing down for the gold than examine its inner workings and build a supercomputer by 1902.
Photo 46

-Ahahahahahaha! It's like an Impala transition shot from season one! XD
Photo 47

-Yeah, there isn't exactly a parking brake on a horse. Not handy when you're trying to sneak out of Dodge ahead of the undead guy who's going to kill you with fire. And scare the crap out of your horse. Handy. Uncappable, though, damn darkness.

-"Forgive me, I'm sorry." Yeaaaah, that doesn't really come across as genuine when you've just shot the guy twice in the chest. Nice try though.

-Meanwhile in the future, Castiel is looking concerned...
Photo 48

-"Your dirty little secret." Aaaaaand all the Dean/Cas shippers explode. I probably wouldn't have thought that if it hadn't been for Balthzar's comment last episode. *fistshake* Balthazaaaaar!

-Ooooo! Castiel's lieutenant might not be around for future episodes after all! O.O So, Castiel is trying to defeat Raphael for control of Heaven and it doing things his lieutenant feels the need to stop him from doing permanently. Is this something aside from the minting-souls-from-the-Titanic business, or is that only the tip of the - ha ha - iceberg? *ponders*
Photo 49

-GASP!! D-:
Photo 50
Photo 51
Photo 52
Photo 53
Photo 54
Photo 55

-OH, NICE BLOCK!! Nice, entirely uncappable block. *applauds*

-Shades of blue in a wing-burn. That's different... I wonder if it means anything. Also, looks like Castiel could benefit from reading the Evil Overlords handbook, particularly the section on the Trusted Lieutenant... And that's not ominous at aaaaall. O.O
Photo 56

-Ohh, Castiel, grievously poked by your Trusted Lieutenant and now landing on your face. Not looking good with not much time left on the clock thing.... So, with angel time travel, time passes at the same rate relative to each other in each time period. Which is handy to know. *nods*
Photo 57

Photo 58

-"Are we running or fighting?" Have I mentioned lately that I LOVE BOBBY! \o/
Photo 59

-Passing out injured Castiel being caught in a hug by Bobby is my new favourite thing ever. Because passing out injured Castiel is already way up there, but then add in Bobby hugs and the awesome goes through the roof.
Photo 60

-Yeah. Dean in a duster and cowboy hat. Hello another new thing for the favourite list. Dean needs to wear longcoats. He just does.
Photo 61

-Okay, it's a dead body, and grim and such-like but.... The badge. BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH. XD
Photo 62

-"Congratulations, Sheriff." Yep. You're the only one in town who gives enough of a damn to want to form up a posse and go after an undead murderer. You win the shiny badge. *tries to think of some kind of parallel meta regarding Dean's new Sheriffhood and Castiel saying he was going to go be the new sheriff in Heaven or something and fails*
Photo 63

-I really really want to play Deadlands now. Just adding that in at random.

-Awww. Who's the adorablest cabin in the woods ever! Even though I think you might be the same cabin from Devour, and Dead in the Water and half a million Smallville and X-Files episodes and there for it is the official cabin of Weird Bad Crap for Vancouver-based productions. Though I could be wrong on that. I take it since we haven't seen where Sam got to with the horse that this is Colt's railway building base?
Photo 64

-Yeah, crap. There wouldn't be a reason to build a giant trap/gate thing out of iron to keep demons at bay if there wasn't a demon problem in the area.
Photo 65

-Demons were no smarter in the past, I see. And there went two bullets... but if they shoot the phoenix then that's at least three, so... Colt made more bullets. Which is realistic.

-"Gank? What's gank?" Yep. Language has acquired a whole lot of words since the 1800's. {*comforts the Quantum Rock bunny* *sigh*}

-Holy water!! \o/

-"My name is Sam Winchester." Naw, it's Walker, Texas Ranger. Still, you've got a few years before Winchester firearms become well-known. {Getting some use from the historical research at least.}

-"I'm a hunter from the year 2011." *chokes on drink* There are many times, Sam, when full disclosure is not likely to be your friend. This is definitely one of them.

-"Prove it." ... but it's a good thing that Samuel Colt is a complete nutbag, and seems willing to believe you. And Jules Verne won't eve write "The Time Machine" for another 34 years. So... has... hunh. Has Colt had experience with time travel before? Did he have angelic assistance at some point? Hmmm...

-"Well, when you've done this job as long as I have, a giant from the future with some magic brick doesn't exactly give you the vapors." Heeeee!!! XD

-He brought the book with him to prove to Colt he was going to do it because he already did it. And we're just breaking all the paradox rules to smash today, aren't we? {*pats Quantum Rock bunny* You've got an entirely different book. Hush.}
Photo 66

-"What gun?"/"The gun."/"Oh, that gun. I lost it in a game of stud." Hehehehehe.

-"Trust me, I've got plenty of mileage." Yeah, that's true.

-Don't mind me, I'm just going to sit here making embarrassing noises and flapping my hands around for a bit.
Photo 67

-"It's your soul." Meep! O.O
Photo 68
Photo 69

-"I need you to let me touch it." *loses it laughing* Oh man. That couldn't possibly be interpreted a different way at all. XD (*fistshake* Balthazaaaaar!) On the other hand, now we know human souls can be used to heal or recharge angels. No wonder they need so many if they're warring. Also, I'm so not even going near the theological implications of soul-nibbling angels with a very long stick. I do not have enough brain right now.
Photo 70

-"I have to do it very gingerly."/"...or?"/"Or you'll explode." Yes, well, that's always a consequence to be avoided. XD

-Seriously, Waffle House. Get the hell off my screen! I'm on the other side of the freaking continent!

-That's a rather precise and deliberate shot of that nail being left on the desk...
Photo 71

-Ah. Iron, of course.

-And once again, the monster isn't always the person that can burn people to ash by touching them. And, again, family.
Photo 72
Photo 73
Photo 74

-Yah know, there might be iron bars, but there's a nice big wooden wall behind him.

-"Wow I should've seen that coming." Yep. Just because you can burn people to ash with your hands doesn't mean you always have to.

-I'm just gonna put this cap here. Yeah. What can I say. It's a nice hat. Yeah.
Photo 75

-"We can't just strand those idjits in Deadwood, can we?" YEAAAAAAAAAAH! I WAS WAITING FOR A DEADWOOD SHOUT-OUT!!! Yay Jim Beaver!! \o/

-"Just... don't explode me." Bobby has ALL THE AWESOME tonight.
Photo 76

-And we're back at the pre-title sequence. High-noon showdown. Except the phoenix guy dying will really suck since he's just avenging his wife and not an out-of-control evil monster thing at all. If they do kill him that is. Hm.

-Sam is a curious and lightly alarmed puppy. And those are some tiny barrels.
Photo 77

-Whenever the series ends, Jensen needs to do westerns. Along with everything else. *nods*
Photo 78

-Um. I... my brain appears to have shut down. Please see diagnostic images below. O.o
Photo 79
Photo 80

-Well, I guess that answers the 'Will they kill him question'. Interesting sort of parallel thing, kind of there, maybe I think, killing something for the greater cause, nibbling on Bobby's soul for the greater cause. Like everyone's sauntering vaguely darkside.... Maybe? Needs more brain.

-"Yippee-kai-ay mother-" Hahahahaha. Show is playing with the censors tonight. XD

Photo 81

-Man, that really sucks. First you have to kill the guy who has a real reason for killing the people who killed or covered up the death of his wife, then you don't even get the guy's ashes. That blows.
Photo 82

-Knocking. Awwww, hell. Let me guess. Sam Colt read the date off Sam's Magic Brick, scooped them up some of the guy's ashes and has had someone hanging onto the ashes and Sam's damned phone until today. And he... uh... got the address off the phone too because Sam is anal and puts in the full address of Bobby's place even though he knows exactly where it is and has since he was 12, probably. Or it's the only address he has entered. Or he has it listed as his home address. Yeah. *handwaves* Awwwwwww.
Photo 83
Photo 84

-And it's the same logo as the old west courier company. Ha ha ha, very damn cute, Show.
Photo 85

-Yeaaaaaah. Back to the Future shout-out, this resolution, or Blink shout-out, or "Door into Summer" sort-of shout-out or...
Photo 86

-"You know what this means?"/"Yeah, I didn't get a soulonoscopy for nothin'" All. The. Awesome. *snugs Bobby tight*

{*pats Quantum Rock bunny* See, not half the stuff you thought might get Kripked got referenced, and maybe some of it might even shut up that OC a little and progress might get made.}

Oof. Sleep now, will code and post tomorrow. Yes, there are plot-holes and moral issues and temporal physics oddness and time stream contamination aaall over everything that may actually have consequences now that the paradox rules have been turned off. But pft. *handwaves*

...and now that it's morning (wow, it's just like time travel! XD), I'm posting. May edit later.

geeky Dean is so freakin' adorable I don't think it's possible to fully comprehend :D

also Bobby :D

Cas....oh Cas....

and is it just me or did the phoenix look disturbingly like Mark Pellegrino? like seriously, disturbingly like Lucifer?

Jensen really needs to wear more longcoats. Hell, everyone needs to wear more longcoats :D
caffienekitty From: caffienekitty Date: April 26th, 2011 04:58 am (UTC) (Link)
I didn't see any resemblance to Mark, but I am sometimes a bit face-blind. The scruff was Markish though.

Longcoats!! \o/

Yeah, Castiel sipping on Soul Juice for the Greater Good is absolutely nothing like Sam sipping on Demon Blood for the Greater Good is it??!

I have a nasty feeling Cas is going to turn out to have some soul farm up in Heaven where all the humans are only there as battery back-up, like in The Matrix! Be interesting if he did turn out to be season 7's Big Bad, especially as Eve has been pretty dull so far this season.

The DS9 line was a nice memorial to Jim Beaver's wife Cecily who played Moogie in the show.

I am a very, very bad Andromeda fan as it took me about four appearances to realise the deputy was played by Gordon Michael Woolvett, whose brother Jaimz, interestingly enough, played opposite Clint Eastwood in Unforgiven. I am a mine of useless information today.

Matthew John Armstrong who played Finch was in Heroes. As a I guy who could kill people by touching them. Think he nuked people from what I can remember!

I remember your Who crossover Western! It was awesome, as I recall! You really ought to finish it some day!

Yeah, not at aaaaall. XD

Given the 'Heaven is where you relive your best memories' it kind of is almost the Matrix.

I cannot believe I missed the shout-out to Cecily. D-:

I remember your Who crossover Western! It was awesome, as I recall! You really ought to finish it some day!

I really should, and I intend to, along with all the other WIPs and owed fics on the go. It's driving me nuts, but I'm trying not to post any updates now until the end is written, because this is ridiculous. I hate leaving people hanging. :-/
ciaranbochna From: ciaranbochna Date: April 25th, 2011 06:57 pm (UTC) (Link)
Cas and the souls..oh yes, I have..nevermind *facepalm* Cas and Bobby heee!!! Dean NEEDS to wear longcoats and the hat and join Bobby in a western, damn straight! I have vague ideas but, who knows. Oh and Cas' quantum reference made me giggle like a dork.

On a side note, the crack I wrote for you was originally called "In All Your Quantum Aspects" but I figured that gave too much away...lol

I hope your story survives after all this:)
caffienekitty From: caffienekitty Date: April 26th, 2011 05:07 am (UTC) (Link)
When I get a chance to sit down and get the OC under control (and get the Doctor to stop yammering on) I think it will survive. My overarching plans are still viable, and not much got specifically mangled in detail. Much. Sigh.

I owe auction fics though, and have other WIPs, so it's going to be a while yet.

*tries to think of some kind of parallel meta regarding Dean's new Sheriffhood and Castiel saying he was going to go be the new sheriff in Heaven or something and fails*

Yeah -- that one is begging for some brain. But... so many threads of thought to brain on from this ep -- the good, the bad, and the ugly. (I'm not sure if Cas is qualifying for the bad or the ugly hat right now -- need more info!!! but I'm so very curious about how corrupt Heaven's sheriff has become, and if maybe there needs to be a new sheriff in town *cough*)
caffienekitty From: caffienekitty Date: April 26th, 2011 05:09 am (UTC) (Link)
I think he's hinting towards the bad hat, but with good intent. Which is scary.
malevolent73 From: malevolent73 Date: April 26th, 2011 04:06 am (UTC) (Link)
This episode=made of the most awesome stuff ever to awesome. Holy crap. It made me so happy. You didn't came that ridiculously adorable grin on Dean's face after the Posse jokes though! I have to find a cap of that. He looks so silly and cute. LOL Can't wait to read your fic someday. I know you are being spied on by Kripke/Gamble so don't worry about it seeming like you borrowed elements from them, I know it's really the other way around! ;)
caffienekitty From: caffienekitty Date: April 26th, 2011 05:10 am (UTC) (Link)
That whole scene in the graveyard was too darn dark to et much in the way of caps, at least on my screen. I fully intend to finish that fic, someday. You might be a grandmother by then though. O.o
