"But somewhere else, OK? A duplex, or an apartment… I don’t think a condo."
And he said “No, not a condo.”
This is a kinetic typography short I created because I absolutely adore Dylan Marron’s voice work for Carlos the Scientist, and I wanted to do something special for it. :]
While the visual is all me, the audio is from the Live at The Bell House recording of Condos, which you should totally buy in full here if you haven’t heard it yet: [x
This is beautifully done. Got me squealing and rolling around crazily again.

Weetzie Bat meets The Worst Witch in a heartwarming novel of first love and best friendship!
Headstrong, impetuous Tansy Trilby can barely sit still, let alone read- but what she lacks in academic achievement, she makes up for in magical talent, and so she is accepted to be a boarder at Bluebell Hall, where her first term sees adventures of all kinds.
Ruth, the solidly practical one of the group, faces financial ruin. Jessamy, sweet, demure, and a gifted charmworker, has been forced into servitude by her adopted family. Iola, fearlessly rebellious, is forced to confront a frightening figure from her difficult past.
And then there is Cressida.
Polished, cultured, and a bit prissy, she’s everything that Tansy’s not, only just as talented. Her curls gleam in the sun, and she raises her hand before speaking- and Tansy can’t possibly decide if she despises or admires her.
But when an unexpected act of kindness brings the two together, she discovers that under the veneer of Cressida’s posh upbringing lurks a genuinely good heart- and a dark and dangerous secret.
On the night of the Bloody Moon, a girl will be sacrificed to an ancient evil. Is love truly the greatest magic of all?

!!! This looks super rad check out this book its hella rad and has wonderful spectromatic representation! Check out their blog too they’re hella nice like wo w
destiel is fuckin queerbaiting jfc have you ever even heard Jared or Jensen or Misha talkin about it clearly they aint comfortable w it and its a really fuckin far stretch with regards to them possibly getting together which holds the very people you’re talking about- the actual queer people in suspense regarding representation of themselves which woW GUess what thats queerbaiting.
Also???? When I’m referring to young girls i mean young girls like??? How do you know the majority of fans are 18 and older? When I say young girls I mean young girls who are constantly socialised as villainous to the point of vehemently rejecting all feminity as though it were wrong or horrendous or lower.
This is why I refer to something as such with young girls bc the female viewership is much higher n also bc young people are very impressionable. I’m trying to take the blame of young girls for liking these male power fantasies/relationships and rather, put the blame on the socialisation of women and femininity and the domination of men.
Also there is a distinct lack of representation of most minorities/women in supernatural and even when they are represented they’re commodified to no end.
I’m so passionate about this because I am a young queer girl who has gone through many years of gender repression and identity disassociating problems because of socialised femininity and how it was projected unto me. Its been hard and only now am I realising that I’m not at fault for liking anything or rejecting masculine social norms.
(Edit: also SPN uses homosexual possibilities as the butt end of a bland and tiring joke. As if to imply some kind of outragEous ‘LOOK AT MANLY MAN WITH MAN PAIN AND MAN PROBLEMS JOKE ABOUT THIS UNFATHOMABLE AND UNSPEAKABLE THING BUT HERE WE ARE JOKING ABOUT IT HOW PROGRESSIVE’ and its just getting tiresome like how about some actual healthy queer, ongoing relationships fffff)
On that note, I’m not trying to blame youn girls for liking those couples (moreso the people perpetrating western/misogonistic/power fantasy ideals ie; excecs) but callin ‘destiel’ progressive is not chill bc queer bating is the exact opposite of that
D ear god I’m not one to dismiss the whole superwholock enterprise bc I’m really not about dismissing something that’s mostly enamoured by young girls bu t sayin yar queer baiting male fantasy powerplay duo is progressive in regards to LGBT is no t okay.
