Wincest AU - Sam gets wasted and lets Dean in on a secret. Dean has one too.
“It’s nothing, Dean…”
“You’ve been walking back and forth for half an hour, Sam, mumbling some crap about how you, being God-knows-what, is going to destroy everything and you seriously expect me to just drop it? For God’s sake, Sammy! you’re practically crying! You keep telling me I won’t understand, well how about you just fucking try me? Try me!”
What if Supernatural was about two demon brother’s that went around killing hunters?

If you use YouTube, you need to know this.
You’ve heard all these rumblings about Net Neutrality over the past several months. Let’s get real: this is about controlling online video. It is estimated that by 2017, video content will account for 80-90% of all global Internet traffic.
This isn’t just about not being able to binge-watch a series on Netflix. It’s about the future of online video as we know it.
Whether your YouTube channel is home to daily vlogs, short films, or just that one video from when the cinnamon challenge seemed like a good idea, you’re a video creator. Your content and comments help shape this community. Let’s keep it that way.
Net Neutrality means that your YouTube videos reach people at the same speed as clips from last night’s episode of the Tonight Show. It means a level playing field for video creators looking to reach an audience. But new Net Neutrality rules could mess that up.
Here’s the deal: Telecommunications companies already charge us to access the Internet through our homes and our phones. New FCC rules could allow them to also charge content providers (like YouTube, Netflix, and even PBS) for access to our eyeballs. It could create a fast lane for Jimmy Fallon’s clips, and slow lane for your YouTube videos.
It is really important that the FCC understands that online video creators care about Net Neutrality. Even if you’ve only ever uploaded ONE VIDEO, you are a creator and you have a voice.
If you can, please add your channel to our petition. We’ll deliver this to the FCC in September and demonstrate that the online video community cares about this issue.

OK this whole gif thing is starting to get out of control.
Hi PM. I'm a young artist and I've been hired for a long term project by a small indie brand. But it's been horrible, they won't tell me what they want me to do exactly or share much info about the project. But they keep bugging me every few days for updates because they act like we're friends. Then get snarky when I ask to be paid because they tell me my art's not worth what I'm asking. They HAVE paid me tho. I'm stressed out and kinda want to quit but idk if I'm just over dramatic.
Hi anon ^^
Ouille, ouille, ouille (ouch, ouch, ouch in French), it doesn’t sound good. These people don’t seem very serious at all. I’m always a bit reluctant to work for small companies with “a lot of motivation” (= no money and not professional). They are often synonymous of trouble (not always, you can have great people with amazing ideas!)
they act like we’re friends.
You are NOT friends. You must have an artist/client relationship, it’s business, NOT friendship and business is business.
Did you sign a contract? Is there a written proof somewhere of your agreement, the money they owe you? As an artist, you have to have a contract where you explain in simple terms things like “if the project doesn’t go until the end, you have to pay me my hours of work” or “For 2 T-shirt designs, the price will be _______, price that will be susceptible to change if the client ask for modifications”. Think about questions like copyright too. Be prepared. The terms of your collaboration have to be clear and ironclad before you put your pencil on the paper.
Before quiting, send them a warning. Polite, professional but firm: tell them that you need further information about the project, that, as an artist, you need all the details they can give you so that you can work properly and so that this collaboration can be something positive and not a source of stress for you. (Do it in better English than this, I’m French so I’m explaining as I can).
Then get snarky when I ask to be paid because they tell me my art’s not worth what I’m asking.
I don’t know how much they are paying you in the first place but it’s true that prices can vary a lot from a young beginning artist to a rather confirmed artist. HOWEVER, it doesn’t mean that you have to work for a ridiculous amount of money.
If the price is very low compared to the amount of work and that they are constantly asking for modifications, you have to charge them for these hours of work that were not planned at the start.
Don’t let yourself be impressed by stuff like "If you don’t do ______ and ______ , we’ll have to look for another artist", "You are asking too much money". It’s negotiation techniques (not very honest, it’s to pressure you).
Voilà! That’s all I can tell you. From what you are telling me, these people don’t seem super honest. I hope that this collaboration will end up well eventually and that you’ll be paid properly.
Good luck to you anon!
