So apparently when I'm super busy and stressed out, my brain's way of coping is to retreat to a place of total irrelevance and expend lots of energy into thinking about things that will absolutely not result in any real life productivity or reduction in the aforementioned crazytimes and stress (and then taking precious time to write a meaningless post about it, using lots of annoying parenthetical comments).  And this is apparently how/when SPN meta and Show Thoughts hijack my life. -_-  Or it could be that I've realized Show is starting soon and I've not written anything about it for a really, really long time despite the fact I have some apparently raging, strong opinions on lots things including last season (and why I'm giving Carver the sink eye even though I don't want to care that much); the spin off, trends in the entertainment industry, and this upcoming season; the last 10 minutes of 8x23 and Carver and his 3-year "plan" (and why I'm still giving him the stink eye even though I don't want to care that much); supporting characters, why I still can't get on the Castiel and Crowley bandwagon, and the effects of fannish popularity vs. show runner vision (and why I'm still giving Carver the sink eye even though I don't want to care that much); and finally, based on all of the above, why the hell am I still watching this TV show, which obviously causes me to think way too much about non-RL things when I should be frosting birthday cupcakes and cleaning toilets.  Blarghhhh!  You guys, I'm so mentally constipated it's almost painful.  Someone send me a babysitter or 30.  And froufrou coffee.  And a 36 hour day.  And kids who don't zombie sleepwalk into my room and body slam me in bed 6 times a night.  On a cautiously brighter note: S9 is almost here (hopefully I won't be giving Carver the stink eye at the end of the premiere).  *runs away to a place with coconuty drinks and grass huts*

I can't STAND that Edlund's leaving. I saw someone saying he seems to have gotten bored with SPN, and I guess I saw that in some of the lazier aspects of his S8 episodes, but I will always be a HUGE fan of what he does, so it kills me!

watch it between my fingers while raging and screaming into a pillow.

I was feeling exactly this same way, and then I wrote a story (http://brightly-lit.livejournal.com/19141.html) and a meta (http://brightly-lit.livejournal.com/19290.html) that somehow made me feel WAAAY better about the whole thing. There's some small chance they might do the same for you, if you want to try them. I mean, continuity on the show, fugeddaboutit, but at least I was able to get back on the SPN crazy train and start enjoying the ride again.

Very good to know about the 3-year plan. It was your mentioning this that made me start thinking about stuff that made it start making more sense to me, so thanks for bringing it up!

those first 10 nonsensical episodes.

ARRRGHHH, What. Was. That.

I saw your meta when you posted them (I think you wrote a number of them, right?) and I've been meaning to read them. I'm terribly behind with my flist and replying to comments, it's embarrassing. Thanks for the link to your fic. I'm hoping to find some time very soon to catch up. I'm glad that you're feeling good about SPN and having fun with this season! :)

ARRRGHHH, What. Was. That.

Just a really long bad dream shared by millions.
