“Oh," the girl said, shaking her head. "Don’t be so simple. People adore monsters. They fill their songs and stories with them. They define themselves in relation to them. You know what a monster is, young shade? Power. Power and choice. Monsters make choices. Monsters shape the world. Monsters force us to become stronger, smarter, better. They sift the weak from the strong and provide a forge for the steeling of souls. Even as we curse monsters, we admire them. Seek to become them, in some ways." Her eyes became distant. "There are far, far worse things to be than a monster.…” Jim Butcher, Ghost Story (via generaldarius)

Don’t buy that “love is a serious word” crap. Love freely and carelessly. Love yourself. Love that lady bird that just flew past. Love that cutie that served you lunch at a café that you’ll probably never see again. Love every single cat you see. But don’t force it. And if/when you stop loving someone or something, don’t try to fight it.

This is my favorite kind of Destiel art. Like, when it includes Sam, it’s 5308645869483785% better. Cause who even wants Destiel if Sam’s not a part of it?

this is so precious! uwu
