Anonymous asked: I don't see any scenes of canon yet that looks like romantic or sexual HannahxCas, but I do have to say the "unangelic" comment for me personally, 100% refers to romantic/sexual feelings Hannah is going to develop, not because I want it or things it would be good but because I think there is barely another way that Singer meant this specific phrase/word. I never saw the angels as literal siblings but if the show will (IF HannahxCas happens) play it that way, I'm out forever.
See, unangelic to me, means anything that’s not dutiful loyalty and conditioned agape. Familial feelings in more than name, especially, are something we have a precedent for angels being blindsided by in the past, as well—Lucifer being mentally stunned and falling into the Pit when exposed to the sheer scope of Dean and Sam’s familial bond as viewed through Sam’s eyes while attached to his body and more able to access his feelings, for one.
I’m not a thousand percent concrete that they’re not going that way, but it’s unlikely to me. Hopefully it won’t happen and you’ll be safe.
Anonymous asked: Hey!! :( I was wondering what do you think about Cas/Hannah in season ten? and also in relation to incest regarding that? cause I'm really afraid I wont be able to watch the show anymore with this =((( I'm sick of crying about it, I can barely speak to my family before my voice starts shaking, here I have the trigger I thought I at least wouldnt have to worry about seeing in my show and now oh well I knew I shouldnt have had any hope
Well, so far, I think the fandom is playing a game of Heterosexist Telephone, because I don’t see the implications of anything beyond family (which Singer explicitly said the story would have to do with just before talking about this new duo) in the promo, but everybody’s so damn convinced that it must be something else, reassuring themselves and each other of it when we know nothing, for good or for ill.
(Glad you got the reply, Anon, and your second Ask is answered below!)

Buffy: You should have told me what was going on.
Angel: I didn’t… I didn’t think it was your business.
Buffy: Not my business?
Angel: I needed more time with Faith. I’m not sure..
Buffy: You needed… Do you have any idea what it was like for me to see you with her? That you went behind my back -
Angel: Buffy, this wasn’t about you! This was about saving somebody’s soul. That’s what I do here, and you’re not a part of it. That was your idea, remember? We stay away from each other.
Buffy: I came here because you were in danger.
Angel: I’m in danger every day. You came because of Faith. You were looking for vengeance.
Buffy: I have a right to it.
Angel: Not in my city.
Buffy: … I have someone in my life now… that I love. It’s not what you and I had. It’s very new. You know what makes it new? I trust him. I know him.
Angel: That’s great. It’s nice. You moved on. I can’t. You found someone new, I’m not allowed to, remember? I see you again it cuts me up inside and the person I share that with is me. You don’t know me anymore. So don’t come down here with your great new life and expect me to do things your way. Go home!
Buffy: See? - Faith wins again.

4/6: Who Are You
Questions you should ask yourself about your Strong Female Character. From this excellent article: http://t.co/efkvvUqsum
Does she have one or two genuine, real-life flaws that make her a real person, not issues that turn her into a mess just when she’s needed most? Has she a fear or phobia, an enemy, obligations elsewhere? Has she been a lone wolf up till now and must learn to be part of a team, or has she been in charge for so long that she can’t adjust to someone else being in charge? (Or, upon being placed in charge, is she so timid about it that someone else takes over to the detriment of the team, and she realizes it’s her fault for not taking over when she was given the job, and she must do so now, hard and fast?)
This is necessary.
This is why ‘strong female character’ is a useless descriptor at this point. What we’re looking for in narratives is complete female characters; well-developed and rounded female characters, plot-crucial female character, agency-exerting female characters. ‘Strong’ is insufficient.
