Benedict Cumberbatch by Colin Firth
The Alarmingly Talented English star
When I was about 25 years old, I worked with two very good actors. The encounters were brief, but I’ve remembered them both with great admiration. Wanda Ventham and Timothy Carlton both embodied qualities which one is fogyishly tempted to look at with nostalgia. Along with very considerable talent, they had elegance, glamor, wit, kindness and decency.
I didn’t know at the time that they were married or that they had a son of about 10 who was quietly gestating all the same attributes. And now, 30 years later, the boy has been let loose. He has taken the form of Benedict Cumberbatch.
His parents’ qualities are on rampant display. It’s rare to the point of outlandish to find so many variables in one actor, including features which ought to be incompatible: vulnerability, a sense of danger, a clear intellect, honesty, courage — and a rather alarming energy. I take no pleasure in feeling humbled, but there’s no getting around it.
He must be stopped.

MorMor Au Amnesiac Jim
Jim intended to die when he shot himself in the head on the top of Saint Bart’s roof. Instead he walked away with major damage to the Hippocampus, destroying any previous memories of his 37 years of life. Sebastian ever the faithful companion elects to protect his ex boss from the shadows. It proves to be harder than he thought watching the man he loves live a life completely devoid of his existence.
*Chokes on a d
elicious slice of pie*
Sam would be concerned that Cas’ voice was going. Cas would shrug and explain: “It’s no problem, Sam, I just accidentally choked on Dean’s d-“
Where Dean would promptly kick him under the table and cough loudly.
"-eeeelicious slice of pie."
…. I CAN SEE THIS YES.
