As I haven't made a poll in a while, I thought I'd dust off the poll generator and create this one. Also, I'm curious peeps are feeling about this news. :)

It should read "from the roof tops" but as I have had SO MUCH trouble posting this I quit trying to edit it. Even just to add this edit to the post! Argh!

ETA the second! And dammit I meant to make this check boxes! I fail on so many levels today!

I AM JUST GLAD WE GET MORE JARED AND JENSEN AND JARED AND JENSEN AND JARED AND JENSEN.






so yup, I'm happy
12th-Jan-2015 04:45 am (UTC)
YES YES YES!!! That's VERY exciting indeed! J2 never fails to make me happy! :D
12th-Jan-2015 04:28 am (UTC)
I will quote myself from twitter and say that I am very happy for Jared and Jensen's bank accounts. I'm sure the boathouse will be very useful this next season as they jetski and cavort in their hot tubs while Misha is back in Vancouver, filming Cas' great adventures on another road trip with a new angel named "Ken" played by Tom Welling.

I could not have said it better. Thank you.

Very happy to get the renewal. It was pretty much guaranteed, but it's always good to have the official word.

Bring on season 15! :D
12th-Jan-2015 11:20 am (UTC)
Yeah, it was pretty solid wasn't it? Good to get absolute confirmation though

Season 15!!! Holy crap! I'll have a walking frame by then! (well, hopefully not but still... the boys might!)
12th-Jan-2015 07:06 am (UTC)
I chose other because yes, I'm happy but also quiet about it. First, I'm not the type of person who gets loud about anything, and 2nd the renewal could be expected, the only surprising thing was how early it was.
12th-Jan-2015 11:21 am (UTC)
I thought it felt earlier than usual. Obviously the CW are confident with their decisions (though, I have no idea how these things really work).

Quietly happy then! :DD
12th-Jan-2015 07:11 am (UTC)
I do have some misgivings, especially after the mid-season finale turned out to be the Crowley-and-Castiel show, but I can't honestly be disappointed that we get another year of Sam and Dean (+ J2 shenanigans).
12th-Jan-2015 11:23 am (UTC)
Yes. I think that's why I have mixed feelings. I feel the show will be giving the boys more time off. They seem to be developing other characters much more than they used to, so I think it may be more and more ensemble than just featuring the brothers (which, it's been for a few seasons now anyway). I miss those early days, but I understand why they need an easier schedule.
12th-Jan-2015 07:32 am (UTC)
I'm not super happy, but part of me is glad. Part of me wishes they could end it on S10, to wrap it up neatly and give us closure at the end. And I'm a little worried that they'll run out of things to make us excited about :( They almost lost me during S9, and again during this season. I guess I'm just saying yay, but I hope the quality of the writing/storylines will get better.

Still love the show though, and I'm always happy for there to be more Sam & Dean :)
12th-Jan-2015 07:34 am (UTC)
Though I'm not positive about what they'll do with Sam and his hair, I'm happy that I get to see those two pretty faces in one screen for another year.

Edited to say... oh god this comment was not intended as a reply to your comment, bb. It's a comment to the post. Sorry!

I actually wanted to tick Yay!, Mixed/conflicted, and there goes another year... Ha ha ha!

Because I am delighted to have more Sam and Dean but worried about the writing and the ability of the team to come up with fresh interesting ideas and yet, if fandom can do that, why shouldn't TPTB? So... Yay!

I know! Me too! And then I realised I needed to do check boxes! (that was my plan, but I failed on that count.../o\)

Fresh ideas would be awesome! I really think they're tying themselves down with the continued angel and demon dramas. Unless they can do something very different with them it's going to continue to get stuck on the same note. Though, I have a feeling Carver loves this kind of story telling (if Bloodlines is anything to go by) so more of the same is what we'll probably be getting I'm afraid.

Still, we'll see, They might have a new show runner or employ a fresh new writer. *hopes*
12th-Jan-2015 09:53 am (UTC)
I'm pleased everyone still has work, I'm delighted the network still has faith in the show, but (yes, you know there's always a 'but' in there somewhere) I wish they'd be bold and take the show in a new direction with some fresh blood in the writing/creative production. Far too many bits are looking jaded, over used and cliched, time to shake things up a little, inject some new dramas rather than brother conflict and did deep into their horror/menace roots.

You know that old saying? Lasts as long as a soap opera, has storyline from a soap opera, my, is that the fabric softener teddy bear I smell?

That would be so exciting. Some fresh blood would be great. I'd love to see it return with some real horror elements. Miiiiiight happen. Hard to say at this stage. There's a couple I hope we don't lose (well, mainly Rob Berens) but there's definitely some that could more along...;)

The soap element in the show I could most definitely do without!
12th-Jan-2015 10:15 am (UTC)
I'm absolutely ecstatic! There's nothing I could have asked for more on my bday than to find out I won't lose two loves of my life, however *hides* I am wondering about the writing staff and whether we'll get another year of awesome or a year where I want to pull teeth...but as for the renewal, FRIGGIN' AWESOME!

Yay!! I'm so thrilled that you are thrilled!! \o/ I hope you had an awesometastical birthday! <33

One more season means one more opportunity for Kripke to change his mind and come back. ;-)
12th-Jan-2015 04:14 pm (UTC)
I LIKE YOU BUNCHES.
12th-Jan-2015 02:27 pm (UTC)
there are 2 options that apply to me:Ok, im pleased but not screaming at the roof tops about it, Mixed/conflicted feelings, as you know, im on break from spn, i dont know how to feel exactly about this news except the 2 options that apply to me. i'll continue to grade the eps as they come along and i'll probably be back for season 11.maybe i'll just watch for the pretty. i dont trust the writers, things may or may not change the way they are now and my faith is lost
13th-Jan-2015 01:21 am (UTC)
Yes, sorry about that. I meant to make this multiple choice but I chose the wrong buttons! And there's always the pretty!!! (no matter how old they get! *g*)
12th-Jan-2015 04:12 pm (UTC)
Okay, scattershot answer.

I picked "Other" BECAUSE:

-The show is no longer the one I loved. It's changed in tone and writing; I far prefer the execution, pre-Carver. (And arguably the look in earlier seasons, that dark creepy grittiness, is sorely missed.) I still like the show zealously, just not loooooove it.

-However, I AM glad it's back, because we get more of the guys and their off-screen shenanigans and convention fun! I'm still watching the show, just not with the anticipation and investment I once had.

-Fresh canon. Double-edged sword, I know, but it gives us new stuff to fic and art about. \O/

-Hope springs eternal! I'm like Pavlov's dog; I still hope to see bits that will give me that heart-wrenching, id-tickling stuff that made me fall in love with the show in the first place. And it does happen, so here I am. Still on board. Yup.


That came off dowdier than I really feel, because I AM happy it's back! Steady acting jobs are a rarity, and no other show has hit all my buttons like SPN. None will likely again. So in closing: Rock on, little show that could! *ruffles its hair*
13th-Jan-2015 01:23 am (UTC)
Yes yes yes to all this!!! I meant to choose the multiple choice tick boxes but I screwed that up!

I am also really happy but also worried. But I also live in hope and I KNOW that even if there are some crappy eps there will always be one or two gems that keep us going!

Bring it on! :D
13th-Jan-2015 02:16 am (UTC)
Since I'm so new to this fandom I hesitate to weigh in, but OH MY GOD I'M SO THRILLED I CAN HARDLY CONTAIN IT!!!!!!

Anyway, I know I'm a newbie so... But I just had to SCREAM IT FROM THE ROOFTOPS!
13th-Jan-2015 12:21 pm (UTC)
haha! Even folks who have been in fandom since day one are still excited about the renewal! Admittedly I'm not shouting form the roof tops, but I am happy to know that I shall be seeing my boys for another 23 eps! :D
13th-Jan-2015 09:16 pm (UTC)
Can I answer this after it has aired? ;)
14th-Jan-2015 10:06 am (UTC)
HAHA!! That's exactly how I feel!!!
