You know, it's kind of funny, but lately, I feel that I've been reading/watching stories that are especially focused on breaking out of your pre-destined roles, breaking the "rules" and doing your own thing. Princess Tutu, The Claidi Journals, Supernatural....I don't know, I just find it interesting that, as a society, we're so....contrary. We want and encourage people to become part of a community and help a collective whole, and pushed into certain roles, and yet, so many people focus their energies on writing narratives about people who defy societal expectations. Who break out of their molds and make their own places in the world....only to often fall into the patterns of behavior they hated so much in the first place, except that they just inflict it on other people. And I guess that's the thing about human nature. We don't always necessarily want to make things better for everyone----we just want to be on top. Even people like, say, Roy Mustang, from FMA; he wants to become a better Fuhrer to the people of Amestris. And maybe he does genuinely want to improve people's lives, but again, there's the obsession with being on top.

I....don't really have a point with this. At least, not yet. It's just been something that's stewing in my brain, especially when noting the similarites between these three stories that I'm currently partaking in.

Anyway, now I need to get myself into a more Supernatural-focused mindset. Spoilers below the cut for all aired episodes of the show, obviously. This episode's story was by Ron Milbauer and Terri Hughes Burton, and the teleplay by Eric Kripke. (I really have no idea what a teleplay is, for the record.) (And for the former two, they've only worked on this episode and "Bloody Mary". Hmm.)

"Dude. Check out the size of this freaking bear." )
