Wow, you guys. Ten years in the bag. And despite everything, these guys bring their all. I gotta say, I'm worn out after watching that. On multiple levels.

Summary: Set Post S1. He’d been so fixated on those looking to destroy the people of his city he missed those looking to destroy him. Or, how the sins of the father are revisited on the son…and everyone the son loves.

Author’s Note: So, this is my first foray into the Marvel universe. Have to hand it to Netflix: they revealed in me a bit of a surprising obsession with a certain blind, vigilante lawyer. I found myself drawn to Matt Murdock’s story and wanted to delve a bit deeper into some of what drives him, and not just as Daredevil. This story is based almost entirely in the recent TV-show universe, so apologies to those Daredevil & Marvel purists out there who detect something potentially amiss. I haven’t picked up a comic book since…well, let’s just say it’s been a while. I’ve taken a few artistic liberties with some of the details of the characters’ pasts. I hope you enjoy.

Author PSA: Several of you have told me the reason you ‘followed’ me as an author was due to my Supernatural fanfic and you’re disappointed when you see a fic from a different show pop up in your author alerts. Rest assured that I have not abandoned our Winchester boys; I’ve a story idea that I’m considering (the “cave story” for those of you who follow my weekly episode reviews) once S10 wraps up. But lately, I’ve not been as inspired to write stories for the Winchesters as I have in other fandoms such as The Musketeers and now Daredevil. I apologize for disappointing you and hope that if this story is not to your liking, you’ll return when there is a Supernatural story ready to read.

Well, I was right. That was as hard to watch as I'd feared it'd be.

I'd like to say I didn't see that one coming...but I'd be lying. However, when I speculated that Sam's statement of "death not always being goodbye" last episode was foreshadowing, I probably should have cast the net wider than just the brothers.

So, there were definitely several moments of enjoyment in this one, but taken as a whole, I have a request for the writers when it comes to S11...

Stream of Consciousness, Episode 10.19

Oh, these boys. There's a song by Augustana called, "Either Way, I'll Break Your Heart Someday," and I'm pretty sure that is their ballad to us.

But first, a PSA. As you may recall, I started a 2nd role in January. Recently, I was asked to take on a 3rd role and thus work is eating me alive, the end. Seriously, though, it's more or less temporary as I get things aligned for someone else to, hopefully, step in.

Why should you care about that, you ask? Well, I'll tell you.

Because of Job Number 3 and Job Number 2, I have to do a bit of traveling in the coming weeks. I'll be in Chicago the week of May 4th and in London the week of May 18th, which means the Rambles for episode 21 and (*gulp*) 23 will be late. I'll have to wait until I can download the epi on my Kindle (usually two days after), so you'll see the Ramble on the weekend, probably. More than likely, I'll also be late replying to your comments -- BUT! I don't want you to NOT comment just because I'll be late. I love to hear from you and as you've seen, others who read the Ramble also read what you have to say.

So, please be patient with me, come back, read, chat, angst, pass tissues, spill the popcorn salt, whatever we must to survive the ending of our beloved Show's 10th season together. Okay, enough of that. Let's Ramble On, shall we?

Stream of Consciousness, Episode 10.18

Okay, remember a few Rambles back when I said that I really needed them to start pulling the loose ends of these multiple story lines together? I think they heard me.

Stream of Consciousness, Epi 10.17

Okay, I liked this one, you guys. I know - you're shocked, right? ;)

Stream of Consciousness, Epi 10.16

After seeing the name for this episode, I was really hoping to hear some Rolling Stones in the "THEN"...you? Still, I love a ghost hunt as much as the next guy.

Hope that this is a bit more 'on time' for you after the lateness of the Ramble for 10.15, The Things They Carried. I may even get to post on Wednesday night next week; yesterday was the hubs' birthday and I really couldn't bring myself to pick Dean Winchester over him, you understand.

So, let's Ramble, shall we?

Stream of Consciousness, Epi 10.15 (belated)

Hi all! Welcome back from the latest hiatus!

First, let me extend my apologies for being so late with this Ramble. My family and I were on a road trip from KS to AZ last week during my daughter's spring break. Much of that time was spent rather "off the grid" so I wasn't able to post anything. I didn't see this episode until Saturday when I was able to download it from Amazon, and with the return trip and re-entry into the 12-hr work day, this is the first I've had to Ramble. Because of that, this will be a bit brief, but I'll work to get back on track this week. If all goes well, I should be able to post on Thursdays, moving forward.

As far as "The Things They Carried" is concerned, it was a good MotW to ease us back into the swing of things, I thought.
