The Five(ish) Doctors (x)
This episode was an AMAZING companion piece to the 50th and I will FIGHT you
I’m so glad they got the old boys involved in some way (even if it’s not quite the way everyone reeeeally wanted)
“What counts in life is not the mere fact that we have lived. It is what difference we have made to the lives of others that will determine the significance of the life we lead,” – Nelson Mandela (1918-2013)
3-year-old filly Canadiana, with jockey Eddie Arcaro, return victorious after winning the 1953 Queen’s Plate by five lengths
Fittingly, Canadiana, the “Queen of Canada”, won the Queen’s Plate on the very day of Queen Elizabeth II’s coronation

The Life of a King
1948 Triple Crown winner and equine millionaire Citation enjoying his retirement in luxury at Calumet Farm
Can we talk about Kevin Tran a moment, aka Advanced Placement, aka a 19 year old genius ripped from a safe suburban life and thrown into one of monsters and angels who are anything but, aka the boy who outsmarted the King of Hell, aka the boy who in the span of a year has lost literally everyone he loves including his girlfriend and mother, aka the boy who APOLOGIZES when he thinks he’s been killed and is letting Sam and Dean down simply by BEING DEAD.
I don’t know if there’s a single character on spn without a back story that’ll break your heart, but I feel like Kevin deserves a special mention because he wasn’t raised a hunter, or ever had any training in the supernatural, he was just a kid who played the cello and enjoyed learning and was looking forward to college. In short, he was just like so many us, until his life went to hell. But instead of giving up or giving in, he kept on fighting, kept on thinking and working and doing what everyone asked of him at the expense of his own sanity and health and even prepared to pay for it at the cost of his own life. All just because it was the right thing to do.
Kevin Tran is my hero.
I normally don’t reblog gifsets. I try to stick with reaction gifs.
Rest in peace, pocket prophet.
The Lane’s End Experience
I found this video while perusing for horse documentaries to help inspire me to improve my own work. This footage makes me want to die in a good way.
Mucho Macho Man to stay in training for 2014 :-)
