[9/23] Spells, Curses & Ganking - 8x09 Citizen Fang
You’re out of pecan? Story of my life
While strictly speaking not a curse, craving and hunger play an important part in Carver-era Supernatural. Giving into desires is a double-edged sword, particularly when the hunger is subconsciously fueled by the darker traits of a character, when consuming means feeding the darkness inside.
The contrast between Martin Creaser and Benny LaFitte in Citizen Fang is the first time Carver truly explores the idea of the monster inside. To me, the two gifs above represent the idea of choice over whether you give into the monster in your nature or not. Martin, the human, who should be the one to practice forgiveness and restraint, feeds his hunger, literally, and figuratively, by not letting go of the notion that the vampire must die. The shots of him eating a brightly red-coloured cherry pie are disturbing and gross on purpose. Martin’s eating is not a good thing.
Benny, meanwhile, turns away from the desire inside himself, turns away from the fresh, brightly red-coloured human blood that no doubt is assailing all his senses. The similarity in colour is deliberate to draw our attention to the parallel. Yet, where Martin’s eating freaks us out, Benny’s refusal of the monster inside him inspires admiration. The blood is nowhere near as disturbing as the pie is and that should be a gigantic red flag.
The monster and the human both have a choice and contrary to normal conventions, the human gives in and the monster walks away. That in itself is a beautiful contrast, but looking at it more closely, Martin and Benny actually represent Sam and Dean as well. ‘Cause what do we see Martin eat? Pie, the very pie that Dean earlier in the episode turned down.
For now Dean has taken a rain-check on it, and I know it is something of a running gag in the fandom that Dean kept being denied his pie in season 8, but in retrospect, we should have wished for him never to eat it again, because it is not until 9x03 that he actually gets it. And once he finally consumes it, he -in that metaphor for not understanding what he has gotten himself and Sam into with Gadreel- doesn’t read the label, simply feeds his hunger like Martin did, which sets him on the path to death and demonhood.
So, Martin eating the pie here, should have been a warning sign that the moment Dean would eat pie, things would spiral out of control. He feeds his hunger and then threatens to kill an innocent and dies. He feeds the hunger inside, couldn’t let go. Martin here shows us what will happen to Dean.
Meanwhile it is Benny who turns away from Dean in much the same way Sam turned away from his brother (it is no coincidence Benny keeps referring to Dean as a brother, to make sure we get this parallel). Sam let go. Benny let go, it is only because he was dragged back in by the other that he cannot truly leave.
In this episode, and indeed in seasons 8 and 9 in general, feeding had better be a conscious choice. If not you curse yourself by unleashing the monster inside.

Here’s a “life-hack” for you.
Apparently concentrated Kool-Aid can be used as a pretty effective leather dye.
I was making a drink while cutting the snaps off some new straps for my pauldrons and I got curious, so I tried it, thinking, “ok even if this works, it will just wash out.”
It took the “dye” (undiluted) in about 3 seconds. After drying for about an hour and a half, it would not wash off in the hottest tap-water. It would not wash out after soaking for 30 minutes.
It did not wash out until I BOILED it, and even then, only by a tiny bit and it gave it a weathered look that was kind of cool.
Add some waterproofing and I’d wager it would survive even that.
That rich red is only one application too.
Plus it smells great, lol.
So there you go, cheap, fruity smelling leather dye in all the colors Kool-Aid has to offer.
this may be important to some of my followers *and certainly not just getting reblogged because of my costuming and my boyfriends desire for leather armor*
When I was in middle school we used to use it to dye our hair. Potent stuff.
I always wondered if the stuff dyed my insides too. Probably not, but could you imagine on the autopsy table if all the organs in the digestive tract were green
Do you know the horrors that happened where you’re standing?
Life goes on, strange isn’t it?
Wow This is fucking brilliant. My new favourite post on tumblr.
This is truly a work out art, props to whoever created this
This week on You Didn’t Know You Were a Satanist
Can someone from the sciencey side of tumblr please explain this ?
This is called shape memory. It’s made from an alloy of titanium and nickel (I believe it’s called nitinol). It has the ability to “remember” the shape it’s taken.
When cold you can bend it whatever which way, but once you heat it (or in this case put it in what I presume is hot water) it will take the original shape.
If a girl is to do the same superman thing where he takes off his disguise, we just look pervy. Not the same effect
First of all: bullshit.
Secondly: If you are not doing the Linda Carter spin, then you’re doing it wrong.
how did you do that so smoothly?
thats some broadway musical shit
But seriously, I think I love you.
heck no, i’m callin dibs
