I finally found it again!!! This one really is a gem. Matthew Mercer lip-syncs Build Me Up Buttercup

Just like Slughorn, Albus Dumbledore collects people. Only, instead of focusing on those with influence, he looks to the outcasts.

The expelled half-giant.The young werewolf.The repentant Death Eater.

He protects them and gives them a second chance. All he asks in return is their loyalty.

And, if on occasion he requests that they undertake a certain task, invoking their debt of gratitude - well, that is no more than he is owed.

He once thought to add a certain disowned Black to his collection, but quickly realised his mistake.

Sirius is not an outcast, but a rebel. He knowingly chose his path, and chooses what price he is willing to pay for it. He refuses to be used.

So Albus Dumbledore abandons him.

Who gave you the RIGHT?

Dumbledore knows Sirius’s loyalty lies with Harry instead of him, and he has no use for someone who is not willing to follow his orders without question. 

Ooooohoo if there’s ever a post that fits my aesthetic…

image

okay but then where does Harry himself fit into this collection? Is he an outcast because he is “the Boy Who Lived”?

Nooonono, my friend, that’s what makes this post so beautiful. Because it fits the meta I’ve been trying to get people to accept for years. 

Harry was an outcast due to a childhood filled with abuse and neglect. 

Vernon made him an outcast by dismissing his claims of magic, berating him, locking him in a CLOSET and putting bars on his window, and let’s face it, even though her editor made her cut it out, Jo intended for there to be physical abuse. 

Petunia made him an outcast by enabling and contributing to this abuse, as well as making Harry do dozens of chores while doting on Dudley. 

Dudley made him an outcast by bullying him and threatening any students at school who wanted to be his friends. 

And the rest of the wizarding world made him an outcast when they bullied him for being an outsider.

Harry James Potter became an outcast the moment he was placed with The Dursleys.

And who put him there in the first place?

image

I’m here for this Anti-Dumbledore discussion.

This makes even more sense when you consider why Dumbledore deliberately made Harry an outcast.

Think about it What would Harry have been like if he had grown up in the wizarding world? Or, to put it another way, what would Harry have been like if he had grown up in a world where magic was the norm?

He would have taken magic for granted. He would have been less likely (especially as he got older) to view Dumbledore as a wise mentor and more likely to see him as flawed and capable of bad decisions. He would have seen both the world and Dumbledore as ordinary, with their good points and bad points.

But Dumbledore didn’t need a well-adjusted boy who took magic and the magical world for granted. He needed a child who would love the magical world unstintingly, even irrationally, because it was a haven from neglect and abuse. Even more, he needed a child who feared this world becoming evil and who therefore would not question someone that he saw as the ultimate authority, especially if he believed that obeying that authority would keep the world safe.

Even if obedience meant his own death.

Dumbledore wanted a martyr who would die for the wizarding world, because he believed that Voldemort could not die until Harry did. Which was why he left Harry with the Dursleys and let them neglect and emotionally abuse him for the next ten years.

To get a martyr, he first had to create a victim.

Who’s up for a little nostalgia tour? The chosen theme for this mid February weekend is flirting failboats Dean and Cas, and these are some of our forever favorite short fics. All fics have been previously recced on this blog; some of them a long time ago, quite a few are by writers who have already left the fandom. If you are a new destiel reader, you may have missed these little gems. Check them out and you may discover your new favorite author!  

All title links go to AO3, second link goes to the rec list the fic was recced first. The year the fic was posted is adde in the bracket. See here about recent changes in our fic review and reccing format. Screen cap from homeofthenutty

A Safe Deposit by casbean [T, 1,500 word count, 2019]  previously recced here! 

Dean has a special deposit to make at the fertility clinic. His nurse is ridiculously hot and it’s distracting. 

A Single Kiss by whelvenwings [T, 4,100 word count, 2016]  previously recced here! 

>> So did you kiss him? Cas read Anna’s text message with a sigh, standing next to his bed in his pyjamas, only just woken up. He should never, ever have allowed his sister even the slightest of glimpses into his meagre dating life.

Eelings for You by K_K_TiBal [Gen, 4,200 word count, 2017]  previously recced here! 

By the request of of purgatory-jar, who wanted non-crack eel-themed deancas.  (aquarium tour guide Cas meets teacher Dean and his class)

Incredibly Single & Ready to Mingle by imogenbynight [T, 3,600 word count, 2014]  previously recced here! 

Sam uses Facebook like the social media junkie he is. He’s befriended literally every person he’s ever had a conversation with since he got an account, which means that approximately—Dean checks—eight hours ago, he shared this horrible photo with something in the vicinity of nine hundred people. The caption below the picture reads “incredibly single & ready to mingle ;)” and roughly half of them have liked it. Dean has never been so embarrassed in his life.

Neighborly Behavior by Annie D (scaramouche) [T, 1,900 word count, 2017] previously recced here! 

Cas and Dean at a neighborhood potluck, in an AU where they’re both kinda assholes. 

Novak Quadruplets verse by violue [T, M, NC-17, 8,100 word count, 2016] previously recced here! 

It took weeks, even months before Dean was confident that he could tell the Novak Quadruplets apart… [summary of part 1]

okay, cupid. by orange_crushed [T, 4,600 word count, 2014] previously recced here! 

“The dating thing?” Dean frowns. “Online dating is for weirdos. Robots. Dudes hanging out in their basements.“ "You hang out in your basement." "I have an air hockey table down there,” Dean says, icily.

One White Lie by komodobits [T, 11,200 word count, 2015] (our review) 

Castiel takes a deep breath and rings the doorbell. He doesn’t need to run through what he’s going to say – he’s already planned and edited and rehearsed it a thousand times. He is going to ask Dean Winchester out to dinner. If it’s not too forward, he’ll say, perfectly charming. You see, I’ve seen you around the neighbourhood and you always seem so earnest and I’d really like to get to know you bette— The door swings open, and Castiel panics.He intends to excuse himself. He means to apologise and come back some other time. However, in a moment of blind fear, what comes out of his mouth instead are the words, “Could you spare a moment for Jesus Christ?” 

Support Your Local Gay Beekeeper by Powerfulweak [NC-17, 4,000 word count, 2015] previously recced here! 

It’s not like Dean goes on Grindr very often, just when he’s bored and alone. The blue-eyed guy’s profile reads "Beekeeper, 29, 5'10, Single, I watch the bees.” Dean is intrigued. He has to send a message. 

‘Tis but a Crush by Annie D (scaramouche) [Gen, 5,600 word count, 2018] previously recced here! 

Castiel discovers that he’d somehow drawn the possibly-amorous attention of a man with green eyes. It’s flattering and intriguing. Now if only the man would say hello.

The fics have been previously recced on these thematic fic rec lists (listed in chronological order):

Ask about Cas and his better twin  Dean/Cas Social Media Rec list  Seriously … AUs (AU oneshot rec list)  Naughty or Nice - the Nice Edition (T rated AU oneshots)  Destiel: Pets and Vets rec list  Destiel AU, vol.3 - Meet Cute  Tell Me Where It Hurts (doctor Cas) 

If you enjoyed the fic, please drop by the archive (AO3) and let the author know with your comments and/or kudos! And if you found our recs useful, let us know by Liking and/or Reblogging our posts! <3

“Who are you?” Dean demanded.

The man stopped. “I’m the one who raised you from Hell as God commanded.” 

Dean frowned. “You’re what?”

“I’m the one who raised you from Hell as God—”

“No, I get that. Just—” Dean shook his head. “You’re not supposed to say that.” 

The man remained blank. “I do not understand.” 

“Dean,” Bobby urged. It brought Dean back online. He ran forward and plunged the dagger into the man’s chest.

The man looked down at the dagger, then at Dean, with bright blue eyes. Dean stared at them and all he could think was wrong, wrong, wrong—

They’re in the garage of the bunker, trailing out of the Impala, when it happens for the first time.

In all honestly, Dean shouldn’t be so aware of it. The touch is casual – everyday. Something that might happen when you pass a little too closely with a stranger on the street. Except it isn’t everyday (Dean can count on one hand the number of times someone has touched him in the last month) and it isn’t a stranger.

It’s Cas; it’s Castiel’s hand floating up to trail fingers along the middle of his back. Dean shouldn’t be so aware of it and he shouldn’t react like he does – which is a full-body shudder and a hitch in his breathing. He stops in the middle of a step, so that Sam behind him has to come up short.

His brother passes him an odd look, no doubt wondering if there was some lingering injury from the showdown they had with the wraith. Dean just passes him a Winchesters-patented “all good” smile that doesn’t reach his eyes. As Sam heads into the bunker, so does Cas. Dean tries watches the angel go,watches the flicker of his trench coat. His eyes track the curl of fingers from under the coat’s cuffs.

Later, Dean wishes it were further into spring, wishes he hadn’t been wearing his leather jacket, so the press of Castiel’s hand could have been closer to his body.

It starts happening regularly, is the thing. Cas’s shoulder against Dean’s chest as they maneuver through one of the bunker’s smaller storage rooms, Cas’s hand cupping Dean’s elbow to catch his attention, Cas standing so close as he reads the laptop over Dean’s head that Dean can feel the heat of him, smell that just-sideways-of-human smell Cas gives off – like metal melting and the milk from dandelions.

And then.

In the kitchen, beers open but untouched, Sam long-since asleep. Cas’s knee is against one of Dean’s but it has been since they sat down, almost an hour ago. They’ve been meandering through a conversation on the “future.” On what that could even mean for them, for Dean, and Sam. Dean can feel his heart beating in the swell of his knee, at the point where it connects with Castiel’s.

At least, until Cas’s hand comes up to fit over Dean’s cheek. The heel of his wrist is against Dean’s mouth and his fingertips are just brushing Dean’s hair and he lets out a truly mortifying, breathy noise at the touch. Like his chest has given out. His shoulders curl in a little and his eyes shut and without meaning to really he presses into the angel’s worn palm.

“You keep…doing that,” Dean roughs out after a moment.

“I’m sorry,” Cas says in that way, where he apologizes for the thing he’s doing, but doesn’t stop doing it. “You’ve been praying for it.”

Dean’s eyes flash open at that and he looks to Cas with a stricken expression. “No, I haven’t.” Still, he doesn’t pull away.

“You have,” Castiel insists. For all the panic through Dean’s system, Cas is calm. “Prayer doesn’t have to be words. This is more…intention.” His face does shift then and there’s an ancient sort of pain around his eyes. “I can feel…your longing.”

Thirteen years ago Dean would have rocked back on his heels and jeered out something about chick-flick moments but Dean is coming around forty and he’s tired and he hasn’t been touched in – well, he lost count. And this is Cas.

He swallows. Closes his eyes. Tilts his head. Murmurs into Cas’s hand, “What’m I longing for now?”

And Cas was telling the truth. He must be able to sense intention with crystal clarity because the next thing Dean feels is the warm press of Castiel’s lips on his own.
