"Funerals are a pagan rite. There's not any doubt about it.” ― Steve Earle

Funeralia in Medieval Latin means funeral rites so that is where my idea for this article lifts off. I found a quote that mentions funerals and pagans, and a video titled "Heathens". Rowena is one of the characters in the video so it fits perfectly. All of these things focus more or less on death, which is an easy topic for Supernatural. It has heathens and a whole lot of monsters and people visited by death. Even when I was young, I had already been in many funeral services, and later in life, even more - Sadness and grieving all around me. You never get used to that. 

We have many holidays where we visit the cemetery to pay our respects to the loved ones we have lost. Also, we take care of the flowers there. My parents many times would have taken me with but for a long time when I was young I didn’t want to go. I remember even the thought of doing that made my skin crawl. Graveyards are so silent; you could call them also eerie. In my child’s mind and my imagination I could almost see the ghosts float above the gravestones without legs and looking sad at me. I didn’t want to think about the people that were lost and now would have joined the weepers (i.e. ghosts). The stony fences would block them in, never to leave the place, so they would be trapped, imprisoned there. Death to a little girl can be too serious; a scary thing that you don’t really understand. The second video actually mirrors this little tale. An eerie version of "Don't Fear The Reaper" plays in the background, with reapers and Death present.

Enjoy the videos!

"Heathens" by Twenty One Pilots

(from "Suicide Squad" soundtrack)

All my friends are heathens, take it slow
Wait for them to ask you who you know
Please don't make any sudden moves
You don't know the half of the abuse
All my friends are heathens, take it slow
Wait for them to ask you who you know
Please don't make any sudden moves
You don't know the half of the abuse

Welcome to the room of people
Who have rooms of people that they loved one day
Docked away
Just because we check the guns at the door
Doesn't mean our brains will change from hand grenades
You're loving on the psychopath sitting next to you
You're loving on the murderer sitting next to you
You'll think, "How'd I get here, sitting next to you?"
But after all I've said, please don't forget

All my friends are heathens, take it slow
Wait for them to ask you who you know
Please don't make any sudden moves
You don't know the half of the abuse

We don't deal with outsiders very well
They say newcomers have a certain smell
You have trust issues, not to mention
They say they can smell your intentions
You're loving on the freakshow sitting next to you
You'll have some weird people sitting next to you
You'll think "How did I get here, sitting next to you?"
But after all I've said, please don't forget
(Watch it, watch it)

All my friends are heathens, take it slow
Wait for them to ask you who you know
Please don't make any sudden moves
You don't know the half of the abuse

All my friends are heathens, take it slow
(Watch it)
Wait for them to ask you who you know
(Watch it)
Please all my friends are heathens, take it slow
(Watch it)
Wait for them to ask you who you know

Why'd you come? You knew you should have stayed
(It's blasphemy)
I tried to warn you just to stay away
(Away)
And now they're outside ready to bust
(To bust)
It looks like you might be one of us 

Twenty One Pilots (stylized as twenty one pilots, and sometimes as twenty øne piløts) is an American musical duo originating from Columbus, Ohio.

Quotes

Jessica: I'm especially fond of Sam's impressive... extensive array of hair products. Not to mention, the 3-day-old bacon cheeseburger in your room, or the VHS tape hidden under your bed, labeled, 'Sweet Princess Asuka Meets the Tentacles of Ple-'
Dean: Okay, all right, all right, that's not cool, okay? That's -- First of all, that's a classic. Secondly, the burger's for emergency cases only.
Naomi: Well, then, let me make it divinely simple for you. There are a grand total of nine angels in Heaven, present company included. And one or two on Earth, and... that's all. We are the last men and women and divine waves of light still standing, as it were.
Castiel: No, that's, uh... That's not, um... I knew our numbers were small...
Naomi: You wanna know why we can't help you? Because none of us can leave, We're the only things keeping the lights on. Barely. We need everyone, especially an archangel. Now the others thought any archangel would do. Long story. But your news about Gabriel is... for lack of a better word, blessed. With his power, we can keep Heaven running.
Castiel: And without him?
Naomi: Without him, in time, we'll burn out. Heaven will crumble, and all the souls that have been entrusted to our care will fall back to Earth. Picture it, Castiel -- billions upon billions of ghosts unleashed upon the world. All that chaos, all that death.
Sam: No. No, no, no, no, no. No. Rowena. I know what you went through and I know how much you lost and I realize how much you want your family back. But don't do this, not like this. This is no you. Not anymore.
Rowena: What happened to me, those were my choices. But Fergus never... It wasn't fair. It's not fair!
