Supernatural noodling

I have not watched the new episode of Supernatural; I literally cannot bring myself to watch this episode. For the past few weeks I have thought I was becoming emotionally distant with SPN, that it was one of those shows I can detach myself from. This isn't because the series has gone bad, in fact I really enjoy the direction this show has taken, but it felt like I was happy to move onto other series, other fandoms because I was done with show, that whatever I needed from the show has finally being fulfilled.

Yeah, um, well, guess not. I'm still heavily invested in Sam and Dean, as brothers and as individuals, and I just can't bring myself to watch this episode knowing how it is going to end (spoilers). I'm weary, I don't want, hell, I don't like seeing how Sam and Dean gets hurt or hurt each other, and obviously I'm not over the show, it feels like the end of All Hell Breaks Loose (part 1) all over again. The thought of what may happen in the next 2 episodes depress me. I have this sneaky suspicion the only way I’m going to be able to watch the last 3 episodes is in one viewing and most likely with the aid of a copious amount of booze.

In conclusion; I need much distraction until I have the next 2 episodes so that I may watch the last 3 episodes in a row. This is going to be emotionally draining.

Testing out the new crossposting capabilities of dw.

A few meta-ish thoughts; I’m not a contributor to fandom, at least not in the ways of fanfiction, fanart or other fan-activities. I do reviews, I meta and I squee, but mostly I consume fan-products; fics, arts, music-mixes and so forth. Even then I don’t do these activities with much discipline as my attention span is like that of a gnat. Sparkly things will distract me, and if a show becomes ‘bad’ or becomes something I no long care about I tend to stop talking about it all together. This is a bit of a double-edged sword; on the one hand it means I don’t get caught up in wank and have a much saner outlook on fandom (LAUGH people, laugh, we READ porn about FICTIONAL people, how can we take it seriously?), however, it also means I don’t have the social capital (thank you [personal profile] charmian) to influence others into my way of thinking (I like to be right, being wrong ruffles my feathers, I’m trying to change that) or to even discuss my pet-theories because no one knows me. Thank gods I have RL people to blather to.

Anyways, my next fannish/meta-ish thought, the one I have had since Dear Awesome Bela was killed, and Castiel became the new bicycle for the SPN slash fandom. To put into context (post via [personal profile] fools_game... I wonder how the user name tag will crosspost), when Misha Collins was asked why he thinks certain guest-stars are more popular than others.

"It's because I'm not female."

And with that I’m going to go and have some lunch.

ETA: Some minor issues with this. I'll need to work on the cross-posting aspect of it.

Still sick, however, have gone beyond the sleeping through it, now just feels crappy, tired and irritated.

Didn’t realise it was Friday until mum reminded me (thank you Jesus, I may doubt your divinity, but public holidays are awesome), went into a haze of happiness thinking about the new Supernatural episode only realising 10 minutes later that the show will not be back on till the 23rd of April. There might have been some weeping and listening of bubblegummy Korean pop to pick up my mood, and drugs, lots of prescribed druggy goodness.

So, in my prescribed druggy happiness, I decided to noodle-out some meta about Supernatural because I have been thinking about it, the medication I’m taking makes me do weird jumps in my logic. Spoilers for future episode titles – Short talk about the last 3 episodes of season 4 )

Also, does anyone have a free Dreamwidth account/code I can have?

No more livejournal at work. Oh, well.

I have this habit of writing LJ entries, especially long entries, off and on over a period of days. This often means I end up starting a meta post about something and I don’t finish it till several weeks later or forget about it completely. As I was backing up my files today I discovered a season 4 SPN meta entry dated a few months ago that was never finished. While events have gone in the direction I have predicted it has done so in a manner that I didn’t foresee. So, I’m pretty much watching season 4 as opposed to meta-ing about it every second post. However, as we are in the last leg of this season I thought I might as well write down a few predictions and some half-assed meta about the characters and the ending of season 4.

10 predictions/suspicions/half-assed meta points for the end of season 4 )

That was fun!

In regards to The Sarah Connor Chronicles... please don’t spoil me, I waiting for the last 2 episodes to be released before I watch all 3 episodes in a row.

Right at the end; DO NOT READ if you have NOT seen the episode )

Also, [livejournal.com profile] nekomancy, want to go see Twilight together? I don’t want to see it alone, I’d feel all weird. I think it is being released on the 11th December. Done.

Ruby and Sam

I really like this Ruby, I prefer her over the previous one from last season. I like characters that have more than one emotion. As much as I liked the snark I wanted a character that had a bit more depth. This Ruby fits that bill.

Ruby and Sam )

In the meantime I love Sam and Ruby’s relationship.

A good episode. Nothing fancy but solid in what it needed to convey.

More SPN 401 blather; religion and comics

OK, below are my longer notes for Supernatural 401 – Lazarus Rising.

More in-depth blah )

Kripke is a geek, and I’m pretty sure he has read every Vertigo title over the past decade. So, Kripke, please remember the reason some of the biggest titles out there became successful. It wasn't so much because of their huge cosmic plots so much as the emotions and the relationships within those stories.

Also, if you can work in Gaiman’s Lucifer I’ll personally build you a shrine.

Love,
naanima

Superntural 304 - Sin City

It is interesting that while this episode wasn’t brilliantly directed, and the writing at times were chunky, it still managed to hit several of my squee buttons )

I hear next week is going to be hilarious. NB: I’m currently completely unspoiled for this season, I want to see how long I can keep this up.

SPN 3 in short

SPN3, so far, I love Dean's characterisation.

The season premiere made me not happy, but The Kids Are Alright made up for it. I don't understand why everyone thinks spoilers ).

I am HAPPY with the characterisation; I’m even impressed with the plot and new person. What I’m not impressed by (as always) is the pacing of the episodes – but this is an old gripe I have with the series that’s not going to be disappearing anytime soon. I just wish they had a really good editor who cuts the episode in such a way that it doesn’t drag. Nightmare and Hunted could have been so much more awesome if only the pacing hadn’t let it down.

But back to the point - I don't understand where the unhappiness with the Dean characterisation is coming from.

I'm confused. Now I go to sleep.

Angst = BAD (sort of)

For some obscure reason lj decided to private-lock 50+ of my entries without my knowing, they are unlocked now, but I'm still perplexed on how this was accomplished.

In relation to SPN fics - I cannot like any fic that separates the boys (this include deaths and separation by choice and/or extenuating circumstances), no matter how brilliant it may be. My brain rejects it with a passion, and will often attempt to erase the whole experience from my mind. Don't get me wrong, I love angst, but angst without the happy ending sucks. Why bother going through the pain of angst, when there is no reward at the end? I read fiction because I want to escape reality, I want to believe in hope, good triumphing evil, and just because I want a happy ending doesn’t mean it need to be a tidy ending. My happy ending for SPN is for Sam and Dean to be together, driving into the sunset in the Impala, on their way to the next hunt. While I can imagine the two of them going out with a bang, I refuse to accept it, because I need them to keep on fighting, to be the heroes that they are, to be together, because they are Sam and Dean Winchester. Anything less is just unacceptable.

Swear By All Flowers by [livejournal.com profile] sweetestdrain.

Summary: Two years after the yellow-eyed demon is defeated, the Winchesters are still waiting for their happy ending.

And that is how you write a happy ending! READ THIS!

Not a spectacular episode, but I enjoyed it nonetheless.

ETA: So, I'm a compulsive clicker of links - five minutes ago I clicked onto a link that had a SPOILER-FILLED PICTURE for the season finale of Supernatural. This is an ACCIDENT! I DIDN'T WANT TO KNOW! I Have been so good about not reading spoilers for this series. ARGHHH!

I must speak about this! SPOILERS for SPN s2 finale )

Taking a break from work – you know what I want to read in the Supernatural fandom? I want to read about John and Sam, spoilers for s1 and s2 ) I want to read about a father and a son who are too similar to ever live together in harmony but clearly loves each other. There seem to be a huge blank spot in this fandom when it comes to John and Sam, and it shouldn't because Sam is the baby of the family and John loves his sons. At one point in their lives John was half of Sam's world, the father who carried him in his arms, the father who taught him right from wrong, and the father who was so proud of what he has become.

Now I go back to work.

SPN & Life

On my re-watching of SPN - finished Wendigo, Route 666 and Shadows). And wow – Sam was so skinny, Dean was so excited about everything, and there was this sense of a grand ol' adventure, whereas now it is death, damnation and the stakes are about a thousandth times more deadly then season 1. It is really amazing just how different season 1 and 2 are – in both the external and the internal sense. Emotionally I think Dean and Sam are in a completely different head space than what they were in s1, thematically their journey should have ended at the end of IMTOD, except in many ways it is just the beginning of their story. I love how SPN is not afraid to change, to tackle the consequences of its actions [success of the tackling still under observation], nor afraid to push the boundary on, let's admit it here, a very teenager-oriented network.


Sam and Dean )

It is like watching two different shows. !

RL-wise: feel like roadkill but so very excited about my life.
