Day 11: Favourite Character Introduction.



These two introductions are probably the most cinematically beautiful. I think Death's intro might beat Cas's by a smidgeon - mainly because of the combination of so many elements to make it perfect. I loved the extreme slow motion, the way the autumn leaves are blowing along the street and of course the song "O Death" playing. Absolute class.

Castiel's appearance was also stunning. I particularly loved the way the barn doors opens to reveal him. The use of lighting was perfect. Both these intro suited the character's personalities.

Enters-Death


Enter-Cas


Of course my favourite introductions are these. When Sam poked his head around that door I WAS IN LOVE!!

Enters-Sam


And then when Dean turned up and LOOKED LIKE THIS...I was head over heels. :))

Enters-Dean


I actually love how both of these introductions represented their characters. Sam - coy, a little shy, tentative and Dean - brash, flirty and confident.

*guh* look at our baby boys!!

Damn I can't remember where I got it now - I've got the SPN theme and some quotes too - mmm try googling supernatural ring tones. They were free, I do remember that.

Ooh, I'll do that. I never think to get SPN ring tones. Considering I have a SPN phone cover it makes sense to have the tunes..;)

Baby boys indeed!!!!

Even though I thought you'd choose Sam, I still squeeled when I saw that gif!!!

And yes, we did get a good insight into our boys and their personalities in their very first scenes.

It's such a lovely moment - Sam looks so...um...Sam like! :)

I would have to agree with you on Death's introduction. It was chilling. One of the few moments in S5 where I felt the apocalypse storyline had the weight it deserved.

Can't argue with the boys' introduction either. *g*

Yeah - Death intro was really inspired ...

I am not sure if my choice actually counts as an introduction, and if it does whether I should be thought of as terribly cruel lmao.

But here it is:



I think the flashback sequence at the beginning of Pilot is a fantastic introduction to the brothers and Winchester family in general. Not only is the direction and effects superb (Mary's death, the explosion of the house) but that night has such significant affect on the lives of the brothers even in the present it was just the perfect way to introduce us to them <3.

On top of that I really like how it gives us little insights into Dean in particular. Such as his caring behaviour when many kids that age would resent the new born showing us that it has always been in Dean's nature to care for others. And that since that night when Dean had to carry Sam out of their burning home he has always felt as though he had Sam's life in his hands.

Honourable Mentions: Castiel and Death's introduction. You explain about those two scenes so well I really have nothing else to add :)

Man, that gif is happiness inducing. ♥ I agree, there is something very touching about wee!Dean's affectionate good-night to his baby brother.

Oh I agree!! I love the opening of the pilot and this moment between the brothers is heart melty. And that's a good observation about Dean. His care for others can be seen right from the get go.

Oh, my gosh, Death's intro! How on earth did I forget that one? Dang it, that's a better intro even than Castiel's and really should have been my first choice. *smacks forgetful brain*

That said, I agree with all of your choices, especially cutie-pie young!Sam peeking around the corner, and Dean's "Hello, nurse!" expression in the last gif. ♥♥

HA!! I know...I think maybe I had seen it mentioned a while ago and it stuck in my mind as a favourite.

And I love Dean's face in that moment! ;)
