In coth(bf) we’ve gotten sneak peeks of a certain shrunken Logan, which was probably the result of the mushroom. In ttol’s(ba) sneak peeks we also got to see him in his shrunken state, although I think it’s more likely that in this au he’s under Celeste’s curse (it looks like he’s got a knack – speed/fast runner). Both scenarios are shrinking curses by angels(archangels) -do they have anything else in common? What are the differences between Celeste’s curse and the Gabriel’s wonderland mushroom?

You’ve got a good bit of this right, but #ttol definitely does not happen in Brothers Apart! Logan is not under Celeste’s curse.

(I did tell @neonthebright that now she should totally come up with a knack for him tho….)

As for poor Logan. Gabe will be the first person to admit the mushroom’s great power is– you got it!– shrinking! And that’s it. He designed it on a whim, spotting his sister dear’s interest in this group and decided to give them a test of his own making.

Since he is a trickster, his tests are not always survivable, and this one especially so. Bite the mushroom, shrink. He never really thought someone might bite it again! So there was no built-in defense to prevent Jake from shrinking a second time.

(Bite it a third time and we might be getting into the realm from The Incredible Shrinking Sam and neon cringes). 

So the main difference between Gabriel’s mushroom and Celeste’s curse is the amount of thought that went into their plans. Hers has spanned generations, and she has carefully cultivated her experiments until finally reaching the point where it’s ready to come to a head, while Gabriel? Saw a mushroom, pointed, said “Boo!” and shrank the teddy.

Play more Super Mario, Jacob.

I have a feeling that Dean will re use the mushroom that Jacob bit, in for science, and somehow slip it into Logan to make him smaller in the upcoming stories

@chewbaccaaah asked:

Honestly, if Logan is hunting the sprites, I don’t feel like Dean would have any remorse about using the mushroom to make him small. Make him the prey.

Dean won’t be able to touch the mushroom in For Science, since the story for the mushroom happens in the Found universe, and he’s left in the Apart universe.

So Good News, he isn’t shrunk by the Trickster’s tricks.

Bad News, he wasn’t shrunk by the Trickster’s tricks.

Dean in Brothers Found is certainly likely to hang onto that mushroom and turn it into a little lesson on perspective for certain people… He’s not the type to feel any sympathy for people like that.

April 27th excerpt:

“You humans and your endless weirdness,” Bowman quipped, flicking his wings before settling them on the table behind him to relax.

“Humans cook most of their food,” Sam said with a grin, glad for things to be going back to their normal banter about how strange his people were. It was what he’d done with Bowman since his curse. Constant arguments about corners, size, food… and it was always entertaining.

“Who cares about mushrooms,” Dean mumbled around his own slice. “Give me some pepperoni or sausage any day.” He wrinkled his nose when Sam waved a mushroom over his head and then pointedly took a bite out of it.
