When Dean Winchester finally dies (for good, this time), Death takes a holiday.
He spends a week going to every fair and carnival in the continental US.
He eats every deep fried concoction possible.
When his holiday comes to an end, he goes to Heaven and knocks on the pearly gates with the head of his cane. He asks to speak with Dean Winchester.
Dean is surprised to find Death there when the angels bring him forward. Death swore that their last meeting, when Death personally escorted Dean’s soul to Heaven, would be the final time they ever saw one another.
“I found it,” Death tells him. “The perfect pie. It was in Muncie, Indiana. Apple, with a flaky, golden crust. The ratio of cinnamon to sugar and its balance with the tart Granny Smith…. it was just perfect. Divine, even.”
Dean stares at Death, unsure of why he is telling him this, but then he looks down. In Death’s hand is a wrinkled, white paper bag. Inside the bag is a slice of the perfect pie.
Dean takes the bag, mystified.
“Thanks for the pickle chips that time,” Death says, then disappears into the void.
did you just give me Death/Dean bromance feels
#And Dean turns back and walks back into the gates#He treks up an inclined road until it flattens and curves around#When he reaches his heaven Dean raises a free hand above his head and yells #’SAM#CAS #LOOKIT! PIE!’ (x)

Really FedEx? You’ve wasted a whole day…My package started in the middle at A, went north to B, and has now gone south to C, past the point where it started. Where is the final destination of this package you might ask? That little blue dot on the left above the US 460 sign.

this is the dopest shit I’ve seen in a while
A friend linked me these because he thought they’d be relevant to me, he was extremely correct. If these pieces of advice aren’t relevant to you, improve yourself until they are.
A good chunk of Tumblr could benefit from this.
US retailer Target is currently selling the Nintendo 2DS with Pokemon X pre-installed for the ultra cheap price of $99.99. If you’re not after a Nintendo 2DS then it should be noted that they are also giving away $40 gift cards with any Nintendo 3DS XL purchased.
I’ve been waiting for Phil Tippett to respond to this joke
I love the moment when Boromir dies. All he ever did was whine. On to the Two Towers!
Back the fuck up.
Boromir is one of the greatest characters in the entire trilogy. His mother died when he was 10 years old, leaving him to be shit on by his batshit crazy father, who had severe delusions of grandeur. His younger brother, whom he loves more than anyone else in Middle Earth, is constantly ridiculed and belittled by his father, while Boromir is put up on a pedestal. He’s had to watch countless numbers of his friends die defending a kingless nation that has been slowly declining for the past 3,000 years. Sauron’s forces keep getting stronger, while Gondor’s forces keep getting weaker. Boromir knows that his people cannot endure much longer, yet he continues to fight for them. Imagine the guilt and regret that he had to deal with on a daily basis. Imagine the hopelessness that he had to ignore in order to serve a deranged old man and a ruined country. It breaks my heart just thinking about it.
And then, Boromir comes into the presence of The Ring. In his eyes, he finally has an opportunity to fulfill his father’s expectations. He’s been fighting a losing battle against Mordor for so many years that he can’t see any other goal besides the defense of his country. He believes that he has finally found the object that can restore his happiness. Then he is told that The Ring must be destroyed; an errand that Boromir believes in his heart to be hopeless. He knows that there is no way nine people can walk up to Mount Doom and toss The Ring in. He believes that they are all going to their doom.
When Boromir tries to take The Ring, it isn’t because he is greedy/corrupted, it’s because he doesn’t want to leave his people to die. He wants to know that he spent all those years fighting for a reason. And when Frodo refuses him and runs away, that’s when Boromir finally realizes that he has become the man he hates the most: his father.
But the amazing thing is, Boromir doesn’t give up. Even though he believes that he has failed the entire Fellowship, he goes on to defend Merry and Pippin from the Uruk-Hai, sacrificing himself in the process. He admits to Aragorn what he has done and that in trying to save his people, he has brought forth their demise. But Aragorn promises him that he will not let that happen. Finally, for the first time in his life, Boromir has hope. He has hope that his people will survive and his country will return to it’s former glory. And then he dies.
That right there, is one of the saddest moments in the entire trilogy. Fuck you.
YES THIS ALL OF THIS.
I’d also like to point out that one of the most important elements of the One Ring is that it twists people in whatever way it must in order to make its way back to its Master. Ultimately, even Frodo is unable to toss it into the fires of Mt. Doom of his own free will. It has to be done for him. No matter who the character, they wouldn’t have been able to do it because that’s the very nature of the Ring.
In Boromir’s case, the only thing he’s ever wanted is to defend and protect his people. Mordor is quite literally right there in his back yard and, as stated in the fabulous commentary above, Minas Tirith isn’t the same force as it was when first established—with the intended purpose of keeping Mordor’s forces contained. So basically, it’s the responsibility of Boromir’s hometown to keep Sauron in check. That’s a lot of pressure for one city of Men to handle on its own, and Boromir is essentially in charge of that when he’s back home (alongside Faramir).
So now I’m gonna get a bit Aristotelian on y’all because I freaking love examining Boromir from the perspective of tragic heroism.
One of the defining factors of a tragic hero is hamartia (lit. translation: “miss the mark”), which is a choice made in the face of a dilemma (“the devil with two horns”). What some people don’t realize (because “Poetics” is often taught incorrectly tbh) is that a dilemma, in its purest form, is a situation wherein someone is faced with with two right choices, each of which would automatically undermine or contradict the other. A tragic hero is a character who is faced with such a choice and, in choosing, “misses the mark.”
But the truly tragic thing is that the choice is made with good intentions.
So let’s take a look at Boromir’s choices: either he goes along with the Fellowship walking all the way to Mordor to destroy the Ring (a right choice because destroying it is clearly the only way to destroy Sauron and the threat of Mordor), or he takes the Ring and uses it to help empower Gondor against the greatest of all evils knocking on their back door (also a right choice because Gondor is running out of options and their forces are dwindling; it’s only a matter of time before the forces of Mordor overpower them and he’s desperate to prevent that).
Considering the chances of the Fellowship’s quest succeeding, the odds are massively stacked against them. So what does Boromir do? He makes his choice and tries to take the Ring from Frodo. But the key thing to understand about his choice is that he doesn’t want the Ring for himself, he wants it for Gondor. It’s not a choice made out of selfishness, but out of a desire to serve and protect his home and people.
But he misses the mark.
And like all tragedies, it leads to tragic ends.
However, Boromir still tries to redeem himself. He confesses his sin to Aragorn. He knows that he’s made a mistake and presses on to die defending Merry and Pippin. All tragic heroes must ultimately die at the end of their stories, but Boromir?
He dies a straight up hero.
But I think the saddest thing about Boromir’s death is that he’ll never get the chance to see all his dearest hopes (and thus, all his efforts and, yes, his mistakes) come to fruition. Aragorn gives him hope in the end but still, he will never see his home saved. He will never see Gondor restored to its former glory as a capitol of Men, a place of peace.
And he’ll never have the chance to see the beauty of the White Tree brought to life and in full bloom.
That’s why I’ll always say if you dislike Boromir, that’s fine; everyone’s entitled to their opinion. But you’re wrong, so just sit there in your wrongness and be wrong and get used to it.
