do you ever just stop to think about lucifer
and how he was in the pit for millennia
scheming and plotting every single tiny detail of his rise to power
thinking through everything that could possibly go wrong, and creating hundreds of backup plans for each scenario
and the one thing that he didn’t plan for
the one thing that was his downfall
was sam winchester loving his brother more than anything in the entire universe
do you ever just think about that
Thanks to the food styling gods, the scene is held up a bit while Mads and the director discuss an alternative to the samurai egg master trick described in the script. They settle on a potato trick– it’s easier for the set dresser to pick up a slashed potato than it is to wipe smashed raw egg off everything after each take. So now, I have to find a couple dozen identically shaped potatoes and peel them for the knife trick. — œuf
We are more than a bit concerned with the Benihana egg trick called for in the script. I’ve tried it and can only get it 1 out of 4 tries, and I’ve seen Benihana chefs flub the manoeuver when they have an entire grill as target. Mads has to crack his eggs into a 8-inch diameter skillet. The props Master calls his guy. The Production Manager calls in his guy. I call my guy. On the morning of the shoot we have 8 dozen eggs and 3 Japanese chefs with their hands made up to be hand doubles. I guess I don’t have to tell you that when Mads arrives on set, I briefly describe the egg trick to him whereupon he just tosses an egg up in the air and breaks it perfectly on the spatula. Did it. Unbelievable. I insist it was a lucky fluke but he does it again. I accuse him of practicing when I wasn’t looking but he laughs (as if he has time to practise egg-cracking between scenes) and confesses he was a juggler in his youth.— mukozuke

This Super Smash Bros has been run over by a truck.
Shit still works.
because it’s pure nintenadium
I love how you step on a disc it snaps in half
But if you step on a Nintendo cartridge it won’t even budge
Hell you can drop a TV on an N64 and it’d probably work even better than before
Nintendium is the strongest element known to mankind
It takes them two weeks to switch Scott and Derek back. Two weeks of Derek in Scott’s body, going through the motions of his life, and it’s surprisingly easy in some ways. He passes three tests in different classes with near to perfect scores and lacrosse practices go smoothly, so no, it isn’t that difficult to blend in while they prepare to switch them back.
What’s hard is watching Stiles. It’s like he’s seeing a side of the kid he’s never bothered to before—and that has to be what it is, even if no one else seems to notice it either—which is why he finds himself sticking up for him to Mr. Harris. He’s watched and listened to that damn chemistry teacher single out and berate Stiles day after day, and nobody says anything. Stiles has almost the whole pack in that class with him, and nobody says anything. Apparently, not even Scott. That Danny kid actually smirks a little, he doesn’t know why everybody thinks he’s such a nice guy.
So Derek snaps, because he can do that in Scott’s body, emotion is expected of him, because nobody seems to notice the flicker of hurt and unhappiness that crosses Stiles’ face when Harris drawls his name out so condescendingly, no one notices the slight souring of his scent or the way his shoulders hunch in on themselves before Stiles can stop them, and Derek can admit he hasn’t been the nicest guy to Stiles. He has his reasons. But he can also admit that Stiles has pulled through for him repeatedly, and Derek’s not going to throw the word trust around yet—maybe never—but he cares about him. He’s never denied that to himself. So he yells at Harris, and lands them both a seat in the principal’s office, waiting to be seen.
“At least the principal isn’t Gerard anymore,” Stiles mutters, not looking at Derek. He hasn’t looked at Derek since Harris ordered them out of the room, although the tips of his ears seem to be getting redder.
“Small favors,” Derek says back, which finally get him a look from Stiles—wide, startled eyes, the beginning twitches of a surprised grin that he returns when Stiles almost tentatively knocks their shoulders together.
“Thanks for sticking up for me.”
Derek shrugs, and doesn’t move away.
THIS IS THE BEST SURPRISE EVER.
HIS POMP I CAN’T. TO PERF. TOO PERF.
