MAN! What a day! The kids are freakin' feral. It's battle to get through the day with my sanity intact. I actually banged my head on the white board in frustration today. It was either that or shout SHUT THE FUCK UP! ::koff:: Needless to say, I took a deep breath and reminded myself that I do actually love my job. Most of the time.

Aaaaannway.....



There has been much condemnation of the episode, and rightly so. It's a bit of a downer though. I much prefer it when we are celebrating the show rather than condemning it. That's not to say we should celebrate bad eps. It's just a shame that there are bad eps. But hey. It's gotta happen every now and then I suppose. Luckily they are few and far between (for me anyway).

Speaking of which. I've been feeling...um...idk... guilty I suppose, for being joyous about Sam being tied up in the ep. I admit to having a "thing" for boys in peril. And I definitely have a "thing" for them being tied up. *g* This doesn't mean I approve of Becky's actions in the ep. That's a given yeah? Bit like reading noncon doesn't mean I condone it in any way, shape or form in rl. It's just..um.. escapism. Isn't it? *nods*



Ack! Far too heavy for a Tuesday night/morning. Ignore me.

Let's look at something more positive.

Check out this post by galwithglasses. She makes some great observations on the colour episode 7.08. I love that sort of stuff. :D

Oh and there's a bottom!Sam/Jared meme happening here.'cause I have a "thing" for that also. And um... well... other stuff too it would seem. \o/

Absolutely. We all have kinks we enjoy reading, but that doesn't mean we condone or would enjoy that in RL - it IS all about escapism, so you shouldn't feel bad.

*smishes* you honey. I think I was having some sort of crisis of confidence today..

Good lord, if we were all out practicing half the extremely kinky/dangerous/freaken 'odd stuff we read in fics, we'd be arrested! :P Escapism is a necessary part of a healthy mind so never feel ashamed of what you like to read. *hugs*

I've always thought so. :)

LoL! Yeah I can't remember where I found that blasted thing - had it for a while...

And I forgot to say earlier, I'm glad I'm not the only one who can't stop thinking about the whole Becky schtick. I re-watched the ep the other day and you know, I think I can see where the writers went "Wouldn't it be great if all the fangirls could turn up to their highschool reunion with one of the boys on their arms and stick it to their old schoolmates?". But imo, if they'd changed the ep right after the potion started wearing off the first time and had Sam pop out of it, Becky be all sheepish and guilty and apologetic about just wanting to stick it to the bitchy girls and changed the angle to a case story in regards to tracking down the deaths I might have taken it better. I dunno...

/ranty rant.
15th-Nov-2011 02:27 pm (UTC)
Oh yeah... I hear ya. If she didn't then go on an keep drugging Sam and knocking him out it might have been cool. As in it seemed like a good idea at the time but in the light of day... yeah... really dumb.

If she had come to her senses early on and got Sam and Dean on board after that initial stupid thought had worn off we might have had an interesting story. They work together to catch the demon..

Oh damn...any number of scenarios would have been better. If it hadn't been played for laughs the whole set up could have been really creepy...
15th-Nov-2011 02:15 pm (UTC)
LOL! Re your feral kids comment - it must of been the day for it....a little tired of one particular feral today I came very close to saying No shit sherlock....changed it last second to No shhhhhhhhugar....LOL!! Then when I couldn't get them to shut up I said "Fine - I'll just be sitting over here checking my emails, lunch is next let me know when you wanna be quiet and you might actually be let out to have a little part of it." Still took em like five minutes for them to get all their classmates to shut up. Seriously times like today when I think - you know sometimes we probably are not paid enough.

But then I had my 9th graders and we watched Faith and the conversations we had around all the moral questions it raised was FANTASTIC! It also reminded me that Dean really is the one who seems quite okay with taking out morally reprehensible human beings and Sam is the one who insists they can't because they're human Dean! And yet oddly enough any human ever killed by the Winchester boys has only ever been killed by Sam. Why have they made it that way??? Dean wants to kill Roy, Dean wants to kill Papa Campbell, Dean wants to kill Jake, Dean wants to kill the hunters that shot him and Sam and yet Sam is the only one who has ever done any human killing. There's a message in that somewhere.

But I digress - yes Sam tied up is always a thing of beauty I must admit. I was certainly able to appreciate that completely separate to the offensive behaviour of Becky....and I instantly thought of you I must admit when I saw it! LOL!! I mentioned it to Tim - we never see Dean tied up like this or strung up and he also NEVER gets choked. Why? What does it all mean????



15th-Nov-2011 02:57 pm (UTC)
1st para: OMG! I actually said "I'm not paid enough for this" today. (whilst devouring some much needed chocolate). Then I thought.. thank god for those holiday!! And I had EXACTLY the same... the bell has gone. YOU want to go home. I'll wait until there's some semblance of order in this room before I dismiss you. /o\ Plus a whole lot of other crap. Including a kid having a mental breakdown.

2nd para: Sounds like there's some serious meta to be had here. So... Sam is the only one to have killed a human? That's...what? *searches the eps in the brain*.... can't think of any off the top of my head but there's gotta be something there. Dean never kills a human? What about demon vessels? Must look in to this some more..

3rd para: ha! You thought of me!! :D And you know what?! I'm working on a "boys tied up" picspam and Dean has only been tied up twice if I recall right. Hunted and the Christmas one. Sam, on the other hand... well, too many times to count now. (::koff:: yay!)

Dean gets thrown around an awful lot and Sam gets choked and tied up. Oh and HIT ON THE HEAD! What's with that?!
15th-Nov-2011 03:45 pm (UTC)
Dean gets tied up in Scarecrow and You Can't Handle the Truth. He gets webbed in Unforgiven. Oh no, I never think about this stuff (walks away whistling innocently).
15th-Nov-2011 11:05 pm (UTC)
Ah yes! I knew there had to be more for Dean ;) (Oooh... now I have more pics to play with... *G*)

I'm glad you liked my bit about the color. hugemind posted a bunch more red caps at the latest entry at Spnematography. The folks over there have been looking at color and all kinds of other things for each episode so far. I've learned so much from everybody over there....it satisfies my inner geek about this stuff. It's amazing to really see how much thought goes into the lighting and sets for the show.
15th-Nov-2011 03:17 pm (UTC)
Yay comm! I didn't know about that one. Just joined because...yay! My inner geek loves it too. :DD
15th-Nov-2011 03:33 pm (UTC)
I bet with all the vidding you do, you probably notice all kinds of things that are up for discussion over there. I get almost as excited waiting for the recap as I do for the actual episode. Because of what I learned from people there, I look at visual art a lot differently than I did a few years ago. It's a much richer experience now.

***HUGS***

Bad frustrating days shouldn't happen but they do, deep breath and carry on is about all you can do, hope it's just a passing phase with them.

Loving the visuals show gave us has absolutely nothing to do with loving the intention and actions behind them. Episode was a pile of poop and fresh poop pongs, especially when it seems to be pouring out of all orifices. Eventually though, you grow vegetables in it - just takes time. I'm trying to give it space while I calm the hell down and pretend it never happened but even that won't stop me admiring the good scenes when I feel like it.

Oh and thanks for the link, will be checking that out and I see from one of the comments there is a whole comm! Yipee! Will be monitoring that place...

I'll be taking that deep breath as I face the new day today. The kids are generally off because it's nearing the end of the year.

Hee. I wondered how you felt about that ep. Giving it some space sounds like a wise move. ;)

And that comm looks great! I look forward to taking a good look around.

Lol.-.
Must be something in the water...
My kids (a class of 25, all age 7 or so) were like a pack of starving wolves today. I don´t mind some energy in kids, but this was....madness.
I had to last for 6 hours - including P.E. - so i was done after that.
hope tomorrow will be better...
16th-Nov-2011 09:46 am (UTC)
Indeed! Something in the water or air or...

My kids are around 10/11 and hyper as anything. Only 4 weeks until the holiday! \o/
15th-Nov-2011 07:33 pm (UTC)
I just stay away from places where there is too much moaning and critizing going on. I didn't think last episode was anything to write home about, but even at it's worst SPN is still entertaining, even if it's just bondage kink, Becky knocking Sam out with Dean's wedding gift and boys smiling at each other and being relaxed at the end of the episode. Or exploding wedding cakes.

I don't identify that strongly with Becky as a character (she's alwyas been a 'crazy obsessive fan' rather than just 'a fan of the show') so her portrayal being off didn't bother me any more than some of the other characters who've been written inconsistently or unsympathically.

And about the kids....I think it's the time of the year, coming up to christmas. Most of my lot are going off the rails as well, I'm sailing from one drama to the next....
16th-Nov-2011 09:50 am (UTC)
Yeah. I've snuck a peak at some reviews but it was one where the comm owners denounced the episode and it was kinda just... whoa. When did we get so serious about this. There were certainly moments that worked nicely.

Yeah time of year for sure. We have our major holidays coming up so everyone's a bit hyper.

aw, hun. A) you get to read whatever fic you want. you get to like whatever fic you want. that's the whole friggin point, and no one thinks less of anyone for doing it.

but more importantly, B) ::hug:: these days happen. but tomorrow is a different day.
16th-Nov-2011 09:52 am (UTC)
Yeah. I know. I think I was justing having one of the damn days yesterday. I think I've been reading too many reviews also...

And today WAS a different day. Much more relaxed. :)

Happy place icon! <33

I talked about this at your journal just recently. How could they mix tied up Sam with creepy fangirl meta, it's as if they've written "Hey perverts" on his bare foot, yada yada.

So if my words contributed to your feeling of guilt, I should say that...

Since then, I totally got over it. I rewatched it in high definition on a big screen computer, paused in all the appropriate places, enjoyed the view and remembered my issues with the scene only afterwards. *facepalm*

Apparently, my id doesn't care that it was ~my avatar on the show~ who drugged and tied up Sam. And seriously, if I ever get a bondaged man in my bed, it would be totally consensual, so I'm pretty different from Becky. *proud smile followed by embarrassed giggles*
16th-Nov-2011 09:58 am (UTC)
Hee... yeah. It did make me think about it. It was a strange combination of having some yummy bound Sam with some... hang on.... are they saying this is what we all want to do? I know it isn't (well... much *g*) but it just got all a bit weird. Some of the reviews and comments I've read weirded my head out.

I haven't re watched the ep yet. I actually didn't have problems when I watched it the first time round... until the end when I realised it just didn't make a lot of sense.

:)

16th-Nov-2011 09:19 am (UTC)
I hope today is (was?) a better day at school for you. ♥

16th-Nov-2011 09:59 am (UTC)
Yeah, it was hun. Though it's a constant struggle to keep on top of them at the moment. Oh well.... not long till the holidays.

16th-Nov-2011 09:28 am (UTC)
I don't think you need to feel guilty for enjoying tied-up Sam in any context!

I decided I could face transcribing the episode after all and am coping with it better this time around. Just need to keep reminding myself that I'm not actually Becky.

\o/ It's been weirding my head out I have to say.

And you went ahead and transcribed this one? Good for you. I certainly don't envy you that job. But it's a fabulous thing you do. I went searching through some transcripts recently - they are so useful. :)
16th-Nov-2011 10:44 am (UTC)
I was going to give this one a miss, but unexpectedly had part of today free and am now halfway through it. Transcripts are 10,000 times easier than vidding!
