Abaddon - delicious
I haven't had a chance to check much out lately, but here's some wonderful things I have come across:

Gorgeous J2 vid:

from HERE (thanks to redteekal for the heads up on this vid).


quickreaver has posted some gorgeous artwork for some spn_masquerade prompts. So dead from the hot!! (Rated R)

amberdreams has created a beautifully atmospheric piece for the ohsam challenge.

Both of these challenges look to have some great works. I am ridiculously far behind on catching up with everything that's being posted though. But I'll get there! (and how wonderful to still be talking about lots of stuff being posted on LJ. Alive and kicking baby!).


This is a very interesting article on the Flattening of Sam Winchester. The discussion underneath is quite interesting too (once you get past the obvious hateful comments). It makes it clear what's lacking (for me) at the moment. It's not easy reading, but somehow (and for some strange reason) it makes me feel better that I'm not the only one seeing a problem here.

That's not to say I'm not excited for the show's return this week. I am! I can't wait to see the boys back on the screen. And as much as I want to say "I'm going in with a new, less emotional approach", I don't think it will be true. Oh well. It might surprise me…;)


I ADORE these new pics from the recent Vegas con. Seeing the Winchesters together like this made my heart swell (and possibly brought a small tear).

(posing for the "awkward family photo" *g*)




(not sure who took the above two pics. They are all over the internet so not sure where to start to find the original source).

I can't get over how much of a lift JDM's presence at Vegas gave the whole convention - not least because Jensen was obviously just so totally thrilled to have him there. I don't think I've ever seen Jensen look so ridiculously happy - not even in his wedding photos!! LOL

Oh and thanks so much for the rec - I did that pic in such a rush it's a wonder anyone likes it!

Now I need to read that Sam article...

I've just what the moment when JDM comes on the stage and Jensen is BEAMING the entire time. What a thrill! And how wonderful to see them all together like this. Quite monumental for the show.

Wonderful recs - I haven't seen that vid!!!

And those pics from the Vegas con give me such feels. I was truly excited and delighted to see them all together :)
16th-Mar-2015 01:56 pm (UTC)
Vid is so sweet. I love its simplicity - it captures the boys so beautifully. :)

WONDERFUL vid!!! Oh man :-D And while Jared is definitely the most tactile person EVER, it's interesting to see how tactile Jensen with JARED. A;so I never get tired of that pic with Jensen leaning against Jared and Jared's scar around his neck. The full on and total profile of them is so perfect, and Jensen's FACE - that look of utter contentment, like "here's where I belong". Yeah.
16th-Mar-2015 01:58 pm (UTC)
Agreed!! :)) I was just watching some Vegas con footage and it's quite something to see how much Jensen has, idk, come out of his shell. He hardly ever sang and now he's doing whole songs. Almost every con! The are SO comfortable together. I've been watching a lot of con footage lately (for my own J2 vid) and the way they bounce off each other is a joy to watch. Love 'em!

VegasCon was AMAZING! That's pretty much all I can say at the moment. (Still processing)

It was definitely worth it as these people not only embody these characters and the show I love, they also really know how to put on a show! Fandom can be so negative online, which makes me leery about engaging but in person it was joyous and fun.
16th-Mar-2015 02:01 pm (UTC)
Oh you were there?! I am SO jealous!!

I think fandom online is different to fans coming together. I know on line there were all sort of threats about questions some people wanted to ask at the con, but I figure once everyone is together and there's SUCH a huge buzz, all that negativity fades away...

Just reading that meta and had to pop back over to say - YES! Flattening - and deleting and/or ignoring of character-forming history - is exactly what I'm perceiving. PLUS this article captures very nicely exactly WHY I have been having problems and saying Sam was missing since Season freaking SIX.

*rushes back to finish the article*
16th-Mar-2015 02:03 pm (UTC)
It's good isn't it. Kind of nails it. I would interested to know what he (she?) said about Dean. I don't think Dean has faded into the background like Sam has, but he's definitely had character inconstancies under Carver. Plus he's really made him do some stuff that's highly questionable…(stuff I know even Dean would back away from…). So yeah, it's sad reading but interesting.

wonderful pics. i also read that very interesting, accurate meta article, left a comment, i saw that you did too :)

Yep! I did leave a message. :)) I found it very interesting. Good to see others writing about it...
16th-Mar-2015 02:20 pm (UTC)
So glad you posted this. It seems I need to get plugged back into fandom because I'm apparently missing "all the good stuff"! What's your sense in terms of which online sources for SPN news are most active (and non-wanky) ... tumblr ... LJ ... twitter ... something else?

Loved the meta. Good to see people writing thinky stuff.
16th-Mar-2015 02:31 pm (UTC)

Twitter keeps me most up to date. It's very immediate and seems to have a lot - though it can be very wanky. You have to choose the people you follow carefully. I'm not on tumblr much - but it seems to be more screen caps. Huge wank potential - but that's more about avoiding what you don't like.

LJ is still my fave, but doesn't have all the chatter like twitter does. It's certainly the least wanky and (I think) still the best way to find fic and fan works.

I see/hear from more fans over there than I do anywhere else. Many of my flist are on twitter and most are active there more than here now. Hope that helps a bit. :)
16th-Mar-2015 02:26 pm (UTC)
Thanks for all the recs!
Man, I need fic for those pics, like, now! And then, I want more! And then, it needs to become a more regular thing. J3. Non AU. YES. Now. More. Please.
17th-Mar-2015 01:19 pm (UTC)
I agree! More JDM! They all look so happy! :)
16th-Mar-2015 03:13 pm (UTC)
Om my god, that vid made me smile! Thank you for a great start to a long day....
17th-Mar-2015 01:19 pm (UTC)
It's so lovely isn't it?! :D
16th-Mar-2015 04:14 pm (UTC)
Oh wow! I'm probably the ONLY person in this fandom who hasn't seem this pic of all four Winchester actors and I'm completely choked up. I have NO sense of reality about this -- my mind keeps screaming "they're alive!"

Thank you so much for this! (Going off to have a good cry now...)
17th-Mar-2015 01:20 pm (UTC)
It made me choke up also. Such a wonderful reunion. It's quite amazing that it's taken so long to get them all together like this.

16th-Mar-2015 07:24 pm (UTC)
Aww, those are some very sweet pics :)
17th-Mar-2015 01:20 pm (UTC)
IKR?! :D
17th-Mar-2015 01:05 am (UTC)
Thanks for posting these! Loved the vid and yes, wow to see all the Winchesters together.
17th-Mar-2015 01:20 pm (UTC)
Most welcome! Great seeing them all together like this. :)
18th-Mar-2015 10:13 pm (UTC)
Thanks for the heads up on the video. What gorgeous work! That must have been fun to create. :)
19th-Mar-2015 02:39 pm (UTC)
It's such a lovely vid. I'm sure she enjoyed making it. :))
20th-Mar-2015 04:21 am (UTC)
It's a lovely vid. ♥

So glad to see the Winchester family reunited.

It's not easy reading, but somehow (and for some strange reason) it makes me feel better that I'm not the only one seeing a problem here.

I'm glad it makes you feel better. I wish it made me feel that way, too. But, the article clearly shows us that Sam has been "flattened"... there's isn't much left. *sigh*

It didn't make me feel better in the sense of Sam's character, but because I've been feeling that for quite a while now it made me feel better in the way it validated how I was feeling. I will NEVER feel better about what they've been doing to Sam. I just look for ways to help me get past it.

This is an awesome collection of recs. Loved the vid and the awkward family photo is hilarious <3 Hope you have a great weekend.
