FYI

I'm taking a break from fandom.  Admittedly, I've not been very engaged in these last years mostly due to RL commitments, but it feels like the right time to step back, or at least tell myself that I'm taking a break officially so I'm not feeling a weird sense of obligation to stay half-tuned into what's going on, which I've tried to do even though I've not been posting.  It saddens me a little that I'm not feeling up to keeping up with debates/discussion/meta, something I've so enjoyed in the past.  But I feel a sense of futility when I read wanky, cranky, ranty, accusatory meta and wonder how that's at all productive and enjoyable for me (however, it may be engaging and interesting for everyone else and that's awesome).  I'll still be watching SPN and posting at spnematography, but beyond that I'll be hibernating.  So this is me giving myself permission to sign off from the larger beast that is the SPN fandom for a while.  Maybe I'll catch some of you on the flip side if you're still around, too.  Take care of yourselves, flisties.  I'm hoping I'll eventually wander back, invigorated and bursting with stuff to say, but most of all loving SPN and fandom again. 
Dean big cheeks :D

S9 SPN Thoughts

Surprise!  I'm still here (barely)!  Argh, you guys, so many Show thoughts, so little time!!!!!!   So I’m suppose to be working on grant applications for Important Things for one of my kids, but instead my brain wants to think about SPN.  This is so typical that I’m thinking I should try to trick myself into thinking I have Important Time-Sensitive Things to do in order to puke out things like this that I normally wouldn’t bother to find the time to do (because, you know, making dinner and washing laundry and driving kids all over the world is all time consuming (and sometimes coma inducing)).  Part of me just wants to write on these applications: “Just give me the money, OKAY!?!” but I don’t think that would be very convincing even with a smiley face and a promise not to spend it self-medicating on chocolate.

I'm glad to be seeing Show discussion at all (even though I can't seem to find time to read any of it *fail*) considering that I've felt like a lot of LJ has closed down and/or people (like me) have stopped commenting/posting because of general Show malaise and not wanting to stomp all over everybody else's parade.  So I’m going to add my 2 cents, which may be totally out of step with the general consensus (or not) and is probably after the fact (but I wouldn’t know bec. I’ve been sadly missing out on my frolic-on-the-internet time … somebody give me a respite grant!)  Here are some probably highly unorganized thoughts about this season:

When The End Comes

After watching this I'm now convinced that this song must be playing (instead of Skynyrd's "Free Bird") in the final moments when SPN fades to black forever (barring the motion picture release a couple years down the road *wink*).  I dare you to watch this and not cry.  Robert Plant cried it was so freaking amazing.

Mmmm, druuggs

Cluster headache is on temporary leave (wheeee, drugs), it's midnight, and it occurred to me that our new title cards looks like an angel splatted on a foggy windshield, so I had to do this:



That blue thing is a tie.  Get your mind out of the gutter.  *tisk tisk*  :P

And poor Cas.  No hard feelings, okay?
