Sam with Heron
  • I'm blown away how quickly money was raised recently to keep the fabulous SuperWiki running. A new, dedicated server was required due to all the information on it and all the visitors it gets. The goal was $2223 and that was raised in 12 hours! It's now on $3,625! The additional funds will go to the future running costs. There's still 33 days to go and I'm sure if you wanted to donate the money will be appreciated.

  • I've seen this posted on a number of journals. It's a lovely idea (SPN day of fandom love). Sad that we actually need to do something like this, but maybe drawing attention to how hurtful fandom wank can be, fans may think twice before being hurtful. Personally, I don't think "wank" is necessarily disagreeing with each other or having different views on the show. It's mostly about the way things are said.

  • Any of you into the Pacific Rim fandom? My darling friend and my long time vid beta _sharvie_ has made a Pacific Rim/Tron crossover AU vid! Incalculable, Unconditional. I was thrilled to be able to beta for her after all the years she beta'd for me.


I watched Scarecrow last night with zebra363. It's been a while since I watched a season 1 episode (though I did re-watch Devil's Trap a couple of weeks ago).

Something struck me:



Dean tells Sam "I'm proud of you" as a way of saying goodbye.

It's interesting looking back, that as early as 1.11 Dean was ready (and seemed able) to let Sam go. He was prepared to go on without Sam. He told him he was proud of Sam's strength and ability to go after what he wanted. He also used the same kind words of words to say goodbye that he did in 9.23. It's interesting that Dean seems to be in a place where he's not been able to be for a long, long time. I get that so much has happened to him (and between him and Sam) which has changed him over the series, but I wonder is his journey is about getting him back to the character he was in 1.11. That's not to say I want to see them separate, but maybe being able to separate might be a step forward (hee, or rather step back maybe).

the SPN day of fandom love seems to just be a tumblr thing i think. that's the only place i see the Dean/Cas, Wincest rules arguments and debates and how Destiel should be made canon. sigh. the Sam hate because he was a dick to Dean all season (what?)

i'm also in many groups on facebook and i see alot of enthusiasm for the show, new people always joining who apparently have only seen season 9. always asking questions about who is Castiel, who is Meg, when did they first appear, etc. i think that is where the ratings are coming from is the new people finding the show and enjoying the Carver Administration (cough). makes me feel weird about being so critical of the last two seasons.

Oh yes!! It would most definitely apply to tumblr (and probably even twitter). I don't see it (much) on LJ at all! Thank goodness. I tip toe (most of the time) when I'm on tumblr. Wow - that place is crazy sometimes.

new people always joining who apparently have only seen season 9.

They...what? Only seen season 9?! Wow, they'd have a different perspective on things. Which is possibly a good thing. And maybe not knowing their history would make watching S8 and S9 easier. It's really only the fact that they've been through all this before and have never really been so nasty to each other that us "oldies" care so much. I can only think...
