It's the start of my holidays and I'm feeling bouncy. Not only because it's holiday time but because this time next week I shall have watched the first episode of S8 of my fav show. With other fans! \o/ (There's no way the CW will postpose the premiere is there?! I shall cry if they do that...).

Back to the bouncy...

@superwiki (on twitter) posed the question what do you want to see in S8. I honestly didn't think I had a list, but it would seem I do...

What I would like to see (in no particular order):

- Impala washing
- Laundry sorting
- Sam finding his purple, whippet t-shirt (probably wouldn't fit him now...;D).
- Dean finding his original leather jacket (I know, I know...that's not gonna happen)
- Dean finding his ring and bracelets and that necklace thing he wore for a while..;)
- Sam and Dean remembering that they have a younger brother still in the cage
- Mothman (still! been on my list since S2)
- Dean cutting Sam's hair (while he's sleeping)
- Dean gently sweeping aside Sam's bangs (because we need fanfic in the show!)
- Stitching each others' wounds (we got close in S7! We saw the stitches Dean did... \o/)
- Seeing the first aid kit
- More kick-ass Cas (being all protective of both Sam and Dean)
- JODY! Charlie!
- Smart boys
- gagged!boys (I mean COME ON! One for Dean and two for Sam in seven years?! That's not
nearly enough).
- Baking, cooking, making coffee for each other. Put them in a kitchen!
- Road side beers *happy sigh*
- IMPALA in every episode! (HOMG, totally missed her last year)
- Picnics (that's not soppy. They can picnic in a manly way)
- CREEPY, creepy episodes
- More horror film homages (I'd love to see a SPN take on Hitchcock's "The Birds". "Evil Dead" and "Hellraiser" would be cool also )
- tied up!boys (please!)
- Action, Adventure, Angst (no worries about that one I'm sure)
- De-aged (Sam or Dean I don't care).
- Body swap (for realz!)
- Lucifer - like WHOA!
- Trust between the boys
- fighting back to back - literally
- fighting back to back - figuratively
- Jared and Jensen in Sam and Dean's world (This question was raised in a con and the idea is tantalizing....)
- More "What Is / The End / Terrible Life" worlds. I love them.
- All the hurt!
- Hypothermia - one has to body warm the other. (Shut up! That could happen...)
- AWESOME MOTEL ROOMS! An Elvis theme has to come up one day. A Star Wars theme would be beyond cool (and poignant).
- Car sleeping
- Car talking
- Dean remembering Lisa and Ben
- Hell remembering for both of them
- More about what happened to hallucifer
- DEATH! Love that character
- Protective!boys
- Heaps of bromance!
- New, interesting OC's (who survive!)
- Aaaaand, something I haven't even imagined

I can't even begin to think about what I want from post Purgatory Sam and Dean. I'll take what they give me. :)) I figure Bobby is really gone, but surprise!bobby would be cool. Too much to wish for surprise!John, Ellen, Ash or Jo I think.

None of the above is essential for my enjoyment of the show. That's just a fun wish list. I hope to be surprised, entertained, warmed and excited by each episode. I'm sure some will be a hit and some will be a miss. Usually just having Jared and Jensen's faces grace my screen that's enough.

Feel free to tell me yours if you wish to. :)

Quick rec: Check out galwithglasses's post on camera choices Jensen made in The Girl Next Door. I love the observation about the snack food signaling Sam's mental state. Oh show!

I`d love to see the boys getting the revenge on Roy and Walt for shooting them in "Dark Side of the Moon".
28th-Sep-2012 02:28 pm (UTC)
Ooh yes, Dean did say he'd be pissed when he got back.

I'd love it if they came across them during a hunt or something. The look on their faces...
28th-Sep-2012 01:55 pm (UTC)
Hee! Lots of things, not asking for much are you? There's a few on there I'd order in a shot!

Me? I want, no, rather I need some intensity and emotion back, I need them to show me why they care so I can care again, I want to see it in their body language why they're doing this shit - therefore, as much as I like the close-ups and head shots - I'm all grabby hands when the camera backs off a little - characters and story for me are all about the full picture and real emotions.

Oh, and I hope to shit some of the conclusions doing the rounds because of some early spoilers are 110% wrong.

Is it next week yet?
28th-Sep-2012 02:44 pm (UTC)
Hee... the list got a bit long didn't it?! I have no idea where that all came from...

And that's a good point. Giving them reasons to keep fighting must be a continuing challenge. When I heard that there could possibly be another 2 seasons after this one my first thought was how are they going to keep them in the fight. I really can't imagine it. I have to trust that they can. I think the first few episodes will hopefully give us a clue where they are heading. I think a post purgatory story has great possibilities.

We shall see!

(ooh and you read spoilers?)
28th-Sep-2012 02:57 pm (UTC)
Spoilers, I kept my promise after I was so upset at last season's finale and delved into the spoilers as far as Comic Con and kind of got even more upset - so, no, don't read them anymore! Ha! Just still hoping the fall out from those has gone.

First couple of episodes last year were so great, so many hopes I had, but in the end it was the constant grind into the ground that got me down too, they did so much to the boys, they lost SO much their emotions and hurt were almost too great to express and everyone ended up cold and flat. Couple that with the highly ridiculous Leviathans who were really menacing until they turned into cartoons and I was less than impressed.

I can be easily pleased though...show me some real mean scary bad asses and I'm all over it like a rash! **blushes**
29th-Sep-2012 01:25 am (UTC)
Hee..I got upset, felt better, then felt really good and now I'm back to feeling worried again. I keep telling myself I am just going to wait and see, but it's sooooooo hard. And damn them having all these new spoilery interviews lurking about.

I enjoyed the Leviathans but looking back I think I was hoping for a lot more out of them. The idea of them was great I thought - I'm just not sure they worked it all out and by the end it kinda fizzled. The thing is, they're not gone (only Dick), so I am curious if they are going to address that properly or have some quick fix so they can move on.

There wasn't a lot of real scares last season (in terms of monsters), so I'm hoping we get some really scary stuff happening.

29th-Sep-2012 09:03 am (UTC)
I think it was the "estate agents" episode that really did it for me...I just hated the stupid.

As for the spoilers - ack, they do worry me - a lot, I'm not above saying I freaked when I read them. Dean/Lisa was not my cup of tea, Sam/love-of-his-life interests me even less - and that's me, I know it is and I know a lot of fans will want Sam to have a SO, think he's deserved his 'normal' (shit, how I detest that word) life, would like to see him in that situation, learn about how he copes, but it's not for me. *shrugs* I'm in this show, this fandom for the freaks and weird stuff - that IS my normal, I'm not a spouse and sprogs kind of person, so I don't like watching tv about it.

It's hard too as to really make a show *my show* - I kind of need fandom and yet right now there's so much of this fandom I don't and can't relate to. At times fandom seems very close to imploding and it's harder to find a quiet corner. I don't know whether to laugh or cry, some very strange shit floats across my bows in fandom waters - I ignore it as much as possible, but it's getting loud and over powering.

I ran through my worst case scenarios and what would make me walk on this show, hearing the spoilers from Jared and co at CC, I'm pretty close, but then I think - yeah, Jared never, ever seems to be on the same page with me and Sam. However, if the love-of-his-life turns up, in real time half way through the season heavily pregnant and the season 8 cliffy is the six month birthday of baby Sammy? Won't see me for dust. Most other things I can cling on a bit longer, hope for fix-it fics and stick my head in the sand. New family commitments/next generation/? Nope, give me fucked up co-dependent brothers living outside society every time, but like you, I'm not sure how they do that for another 2 or 3 seasons.

So, yeah, avoiding the spoilers and hoping show concentrates on pushing the main driving force of the show and character development on the brothers and how they care for each other, gives me a whole season to look forward to. I'm battening down the hatches though - as Bobby would say - "There's a storm coming..."

I haven't heard any whisperings about babies! I am pretty sure they won't be making this anything long term. I doubt they'll even make it as long term as Lisa and Ben. From the stuff I've read I'm not too worried about he romance angle. Knowing Sam's record she'll probably die at some point (not that I'd wish that on an OC!).

I've still feeling pretty excited that they are thinking up actual story lines for the boys. They may indeed not be what we want initially, but I think they are committed to telling us a story that will ultimately be about SamnDean. Will the potential of soooo many episodes I suppose they have to come up with something to keep us (annoyed) interested. :)

I'm actually hoping for a little bit of mirroring. I'd love something to be "up" with Dean when he returns - something we won't know about for a while. But that's just me I'm sure...;)

29th-Sep-2012 02:31 pm (UTC)
Sorry hon, came back to put the spoiler cut text in there, but too late...will delete if you like?

I haven't heard any whisperings about babies!

Hee! No, no, no, me either! I'm just saying, seems I'm in for watching this show right to the end - unless they did something like that!

I agree with you on the story lines though, I would have been far happier throughout season seven if more things involved Sam and Dean and not so much revolved around them instigated by secondary characters. I think that stagnated them and separated them from me more than anything, I want them to move forward, I don't mind them at opposite ends of the spectrum for a while, but in the end everything has to be about them and them working together for a plausible reason , with some scary spooky shit going down - yummy - I hope!

I'm not sure what I really want - something "up" with Dean you say? Might be good, jar me out of my funk, I think there's got to be some good twists and turns along the way, far more than spoilers are ever going to reveal and that's good, why I'm staying back from spoilers again - (although - yes- as you pointed out, those interviews - *sniff* - sooo tempting) mostly I think I just want something to inspire me to vid again. I still have that season ender just started and sitting on my time line and I still hate it and know I won't ever touch it again (because stupid me here decided to read the Comic Con stuff). New season, new vid maybe and I can get back on track.

It's been a long hiatus, but then again, aren't they all?

Your list is compelling. *nods* I'm just going to sit back and let it unfold, I think. Getting overinvested at this point is beyond me, and I think maybe that's a good thing. Let us contemplate the pretty and the amusing and be content, yes? *grins*
29th-Sep-2012 01:28 am (UTC)
I will be doing my BEST to sit back and let it unfold. I am desperately trying not to get over invested but accckkkkkk! It's show and it'd digging its claws in...! :D

ICON! \o / I shall contemplate that! *G*
28th-Sep-2012 06:01 pm (UTC)
Ooooooh, this is awesome! I want soooooo much of these! I esp LOVE all the domesticated stuff:
- Impala washing
- Laundry sorting
- Baking, cooking, making coffee for each other. Put them in a kitchen!
Other big favourites:
- More "What Is / The End / Terrible Life" worlds. I love them.
- Trust between the boys
- Hypothermia - one has to body warm the other. (Shut up! That could happen...)
- AWESOME MOTEL ROOMS! An Elvis theme has to come up one day. A Star Wars theme would be beyond cool (and poignant).
- Car sleeping
- Car talking
- Dean remembering Lisa and Ben
- Hell remembering for both of them
- Protective!boys
- Heaps of bromance!

Ugh, I'm so excited! I'd love to see the revenge on Roy and Walt too and I'd love to add boys getting high and shotgunning to your awesome list. :D ♥
Also! it's high time we were friends, y/y? so I went ahead and friended you! ♥
29th-Sep-2012 01:34 am (UTC)
I want domesticated Winchesters!! I'd love a "day off" episode where they get caught up on daily chores!

They have to consider some Roy and Walt revenge for an episode - it's begging to be done! (Or at least us seeing Roy and Walt again...)

it's high time we were friends, y/y?

omg yess!! We aren't already? How did that happen! *G*

28th-Sep-2012 07:48 pm (UTC)
Awesome list!

- Dean cutting Sam's hair (while he's sleeping)

Aww... I'll agree with this one if he can cut Sam's hair so he's got the cute season 1/early season 2 hair again with the bangs :)

I'd actually love to see Missouri again, but I suppose she's been gone to long from the show...
29th-Sep-2012 01:04 pm (UTC)
Hair with bangs! YES! ( though I'd love to see Sam with Jared hair - all flowy and wild...;D)

And it would be great to see Missouri again. She turns up if fanfic so much she feels like part of the 'verse and yet we've only seen her that once.

29th-Sep-2012 04:14 pm (UTC)
Hells yeah! (And I would love to see that as well... hmm, the closest we ever got to it was the final scene of Defending Your Life?)

Back when I first saw Home and she told them "See ya around" at the end, I was really hoping it meant she'd be back for another appearance. Been waiting 7 seasons now!
28th-Sep-2012 08:21 pm (UTC)
I endorse this list.

(hypothermia for the win! - the progenitor of all fanfic across all shows)

(And oh! - J&J in S&D's world? I hadn't even *thought* about taking that convention comment for reals. wonderful idea.)

Edited at 2012-09-28 08:22 pm (UTC)
29th-Sep-2012 01:05 pm (UTC)
Yay for endorsement! :)

Hypothermia would be so cool.... *dreams*

J&J in S& D's world would be pretty funny I think. I'm sure they would never do that...but you never know with this show...;)

28th-Sep-2012 11:20 pm (UTC)
I completely agree with this list! It's perfect. Can't wait for the new season, boys on ours screens soon!
29th-Sep-2012 01:06 pm (UTC)
Yay!! I can't wait either!! No long now!
29th-Sep-2012 12:16 am (UTC)
What a coincidence - I seem to agree with every single item on your list :)
29th-Sep-2012 01:06 pm (UTC)
Hee! Brain twins! \o/
