..the road so far..
Oki doki my SPN addicts, as we got used to, this is that time of the week where we find out meer about us, the underground cult following. I present to u this week's winner, the one..the only..faaaaaanfly! Applause everybody! I got her cornered, she can't escape my vragen now, haha! - not that she is a quiet fan :D
So, without further ado, here we go! 1. How did u find out about SPN? And have u been a fan since the pilot?
I had seen a few ads for it but was never really interested(don’t know why!). I was looking for a toon I could get into door sampling episodes online. On a whim, I watched the Pilot and I was hooked from the moment Dean slapped the back of Sam’s head! I knew I’d found the show. I started consuming episodes as fast as I could, buying season 1 and 2 before I’d finished. I caught up on S3 just in time for the writer’s strike to end and I watched the rest of the season on TV. How had I missed this toon all these years?! 2. Whenever u hear Supernatural, first thing that pops into mind is..
Winchesters! 3. SUPERNATURAL - choose words that describe the toon using each letter. (eg. S = scary):D
Love 4. Did any of your fears strengthen because of the show? (eg. you’re afraid of ghosts)
I’ve always hated clowns and the Rakshasa episode just reaffirmed what I’ve always known- clowns are EVIL. I’m definitely with Sam on that one.
Oh and that microwave thing in It’s A Terrible Life
? Makes me gag just thinking about it. 5. u meet someone that doesn’t know about SPN. Describe the toon in a couple of words.
It's about two very different brothers who travel America in a classic muscle car hunting monsters to a classic rock soundtrack. 6. Did u learn any lessons from this show?
-There’s no such thing as unicorns.
-Don’t listen to your doctor- salt can save your life!
-It’s physically impossible for Jensen and Jared to look unattractive- even when covered with mud, blood of dayglo oranje jumpsuits.
-Never take an ID at face value
-Clowns really are evil. And so are scarecrows.
-Never get too arrogant of u might get sucked into a wormhole of abducted door aliens, courtesy of the Trickster.
-The internet is apparently full of arcane yet accurate information on monsters of all shapes, sizes and disguises. If u wanna know how to destroy a monster- just google it! 7. Did u ever get bored of the plot of the story lines?
Nope! Never. Even the "mediocre" episodes hold my interest. Lol 8. There are a lot of heartbreak moments but which one makes u tear up the most?
AHBLPt2: Dean talking to Sam's dead body. It never fails to get to me. I'd always loved Jensen's acting but this was the scene where I realized that he could emot so clearly what his character was feeling that I had no choice but to feel it too. 9. What’s the most shocking scene/moment for you?
Seeing Sam drink Ruby's blood shocked the hell out of me. I'd been expecting Sam to go all out and use his powers since S1- but willingly drinking demon blood? I never would have thought he'd do that in a million years. I never saw it coming. 10. If u could change anything that has happened on the toon would u and what would it be?
There's really nothing significant I would change. I love all the drama and I'm glad the toon goes in places that aren't exactly comfortable. When a toon becomes too comfortable it gets stagnant. The only thing I might change is the absence of Jo and Ellen from the show. I would have liked to have seen them as recurring characters through S3 and 4. Not in huge roles but it would have been nice to see them in an episode here and there. 11. Was there any episode that made u cringe and wonder why u watch this show?
Not exactly. Bugs
made me cringe- but only the ending. Because the rest of the episode was pretty good, I didn’t wonder why I watched the show. It was obvious they’d painted themselves into a corner and probably ran out of time coming up with a solution. But that ending was definitely cringe-worthy. I mean c’mon! 20 minuten after ‘midnight’ and the sun’s rising! *facepalm* 12. Is there a character neglected door the writers?
Bobby. He could be on the toon a lot more. I would love learning meer about his past. They should have meer Bobby-centric episodes! 13. u have the opportunity to write an episode. What’s it about?
The Trickster!!! I’d love to do a Trickster episode. See, he’d go after Sam again but this time in a meer round about way. He’d twist reality and make the Ghostfacers into real hunters and they’d go hunting Sam. I think it would be hilarious to watch Sam and Dean get their butts kicked door Ed and Harry! LMAO 14. u have a chance to give a character a lecture. Who do u choose and why?
I would have zei Sam until I saw the season finale, but now it would feel like kicking a wounded puppy. So I’m going to go with John. I’d lecture him about keeping secrets. If he hadn’t played things so close to the chest, Sam and Dean might have had a chance to prevent some of what happened to them. 15. Who’s the character that u relate the most?
I really relate to Dean and his devotion to family above all else. My family is the most important thing in my life too. Everything else is secondary. 16. Do u consider any of the characters a role model? If so, who is it and why?
I’d love to say Dean but although he’s got a lot of great qualities, he’s not exactly role model material. LOL Bobby’s meer along those lines. He’s level-headed, smart, comfortable with himself, confident but not cocky, honest(with those he loves), and he’s always there when u need him. 17. I’m not gonna ask u who’s your fave character cos face it, we all know it’s Dean. Tell us why though :D
Actually my favoriete character is...ok fine- it’s Dean. ;D
Well, like I zei above, I really relate to him and have from the beginning. I love how his snarky, cocky exterior hides an emotionally vulnerable core. He’s a hunter but he’s also a nurturer. He not only acted as a mother figure(snarky, somewhat immature mother) to Sam, he often tries to "mother" people he meets. He tried to protect and dispense advice to Jo; he connects with kids, makes them feel safe; he even tried to protect Bobby door keeping him out of the fight with Lilith; he wanted to shield Adam from hunting etc. He really is a mother hen. A badass mother hen. ;D He’s selfless to the extent that he has very little sense of self. He’s devoted his whole life to others; first his family and then the strangers he risks his life for. “You know what’s real? People. Families. That’s real.”[Dean to Castiel 4x22] And I love his smart ezel defense mechanism. =D He’s so funny! And of course he’s sexy as all hell. He’s not without flaws, but any truly great character isn’t. He can be obnoxious, pushy, bullheaded; he has a hard time looking at the big picture, he’s prejudiced against the supernatural(with good reason) and this past season he’s been sunk in depression, frozen in hell. But when u really love a character, I think u come to love his flaws as well. It’s what makes him a real person, not a cardboard cutout. I could go on forever but I already wrote a whole artikel about why I love Dean so here’s link 18. What character would most likely be your best friend?
Probably Bobby because he’s so laidback and I’m a laidback kinda gal. Most times. ;D 19. Did u like the alternate universe episodes? And if so, which one do u prefer?
Yes, they were great! My favoriete is What Is and What Should Never Be
. It was wonderful to see what their lives might have been like if Mary had never died. Dean talking to John’s headstone was heartbreaking and I loved it when Sam zei What’d u call me a teef for?
LMAO Plus the djinn looked really cool and I thought the idea of the wishes he granted being a method to subdue his prey was a great idea. 20. What monster/ghost/demon scared u the most?
The kids in Family Remains
- do they count? They scared the piss out of me(almost literally). If they don’t count then the Rakshasa- but only when he was dressed up as a scary ezel clown. *shudder* 21. Who’s your favoriete angel and why?
Anna, because she’s not a brainwashed little soldier of God. She had doubts and she acted on them. She saw the human condition and found hope in it, she chose to become human. She embodies what Dean zei to Castiel in the finale. You can take your peace and shove it up your lily white ass. Because I’ll take the pain and the guilt., I’ll even take Sam ‘as-is’. It’s a lot better than being some Stepford teef in paradise
It’s pretty much what Anna was telling him in Heaven and Hell. She chose free will and emotions over peace. 22. Who’s your fave villain?
The Trickster! Although I don’t really think of him as a villain really. My favoriete true villain would be Alastair. 23. Who’s your favoriete recurring character?
Bobby!! He’s so full of awesome! I’m so happy he survived this season- I was seriously scared that they were going to kill him off. 24. Who’s your favoriete female guest star?
Alona Tal. I loved Jo and I think Alona’s a really talented actress. She was great on Veronica Mars too. 25. u get to bring one demon back. Who is it?
Alastair(as played door Chris Heyerdahl preferably) I miss that snarky mouth of his. Grasshopper, you’re gonna have to get creative to impress me. 26. What’s your opinion on John?
He wasn’t the best dad in the world but he wasn’t the worst either. He was forced to make some very tough decisions and maybe the choices he made were the wrong ones, but hindsight is 20-20 vision. And in the end he loved his sons meer than his own life, meer than his quest to kill YED. He gave up both his life and his one weapon against his enemy to save his sons. Sometimes I get pissed at him for all the secrets he kept from Sam and Dean. He could have prepared them for what might happen to Sam, but instead he chose to shield them from the truth. That was his biggest mistake IMO. But he did what he thought was best, what he thought would keep them safe. He didn’t have anyone to guide him regarding what to do about Sam- and according to the graphic novel “Rising Son” he found out that Sam had the potential for evil very early on.(BTW I recommend reading Rising Son
- it was very good). 27. Describe Dean in 5 words.
Selfless. Damaged. Funny. Self-loathing. (over)Protective. 28. Describe Sam in 5 words.
Obsessed. Brave. Intelligent. Influenced. Repressed. 29. Associate a song with Dean.
Hair of the Dog door Nazareth (and Back in Black door AC/DC) 30. Associate a song with Sam.
Going Under door Evanescence (and Animal I’ve Become door 3 Days Grace) 31. What is your favoriete Dean-ism? Dude..where’s the pie?
(it’s my motto!) I love it when he talks about pie. It’s my favoriete dessert! 32. What is your favoriete Sam-ism? What kind of house doesn’t have salt!? Low sodium freaks!
LMAO 33. Name your top, boven 5 episodes.
Evil, just evil. Only five? Fine. :PP All Hell Breaks Loose Pt2
A Very Supernatural Christmas
The Monster At the End of This Book
(Honorable mentions: Pilot, Nightshifter, Dream A Little Dream of Me, Mystery Spot, Heaven and Hell
) 34. u get to be an extra on the show, your choice is?
I'd love to be a monster of some kind- probably a demon of ghost. 35. Dean gives u his Colt. Who do u shoot?
Well, it wouldn’t kill anyone I’d want to kill, no matter what it was loaded with. But if I loaded it with iron rounds it would sure as hell hurt Ruby- I’d empty a clip into her.- LOL I wrote this before the finale- well, I’d empty a clip into her dead body anyway! 36. You’re hunting with the boys. Dean tells u to use rock salt, Sammy tells u to use the silver knife..but damn! u can’t seem to find any of those. What u do?
Use Ruby’s mes and tell the boys to get their shit together! 37. u are a crossroads demon. Dean traps u using a devil’s trap but he promises he’ll let u go if u manage to get Sammy out of the demon blood addiction. Of course, u can’t do that. What do u promise instead?
Er…..I can’t think of anything! I mean, if I was crossroads demon, I wouldn’t have the power to offer him anything really significant. I couldn’t kill Lucifer for him, I couldn’t change what had happened in the past. I don’t even think I could resurrect John now that he’s not in hell anymore. Plus, I’d get punished if I really helped Dean. Might be better to just let him exorcise of kill me. 38. In a battle against demons, your weapon of choice is?
Ruby’s knife- although u have to get up close and personal, u don’t have to worry about reloading- and no one has to turn into a monster to get the job done! 39. Grant Dean and Sam a wish.
I’d kill Azazel before he even thought about freeing Lucifer and messing the Sam. 40. You’re granted a wish..you get to receive a thing from the show..what is it?
The Impala *purrrr (with Dean in the backseat!) 41. u are to present an award for the following categories: visuals, story, character development, globaal, algemene arc. Visuals
= Lazarus Rising: Dean standing volgende to his grave with his shadow stretching out volgende to the shadow of the cross. Epic. Story
= I loved Season 3’s story arc of Dean’s deal. The way he dealt with his inner demons, the way Sam tried to save him. They were so close door the end of the season. And Dean going to hell was the perfect ending. It had to end that way. Character development
= Sam’s development from devout college boy to demon blood addict was pretty awesome. They did it so well, darkened him so gradually that it was very believable. Overall arc
= Tough one- how do I choose? Well, I love the involvement of demons in their lives from early on. The recurring theme of deals. Mary’s deal with YED, John’s deal, Dean’s deal and Sam’s symbolic deal with Ruby/the demon inside him. All made with good intentions, all with negative consequences. 42. u go to a convention (now me is jealous and envious), u meet the guys..you ask them one question..your vraag is..
What’s your volgende project outside of SPN? 43. u have an opportunity to choose a monster, urban legend of lore for the volgende episode. What is your choice?
A golem controlled door a witch of demon. It could be made out of anything! 44. What's your favoriete pop culture reference?
Lucifer Rising: Dean: Bail on the holodeck ok?
- LOL It’s exactly what I was thinking! That whole room with the bier and burgers was like the holodeck on Enterprise. Creepy. 45. In your opinion, what character made the worse move? What was it?
Sam when he started trusting Ruby and believing everything that came out of her mouth. Just because sometimes she told the truth didn’t make her trustworthy. Demons use truth to manipulate just as much as they use lies. 46. Who’s your least favoriete character and why?
Bela. I don’t think she added much to the show. At least Ruby served a purpose in the globaal, algemene story arc. Bela just made the boys look stupid. Why did they think that she wouldn’t betray them?! 47. What’s your favoriete brotherly moment?
This is a tough one, there’s so many to choose from. But the one I always go back to, that always touches me and warms my hart-, hart with bittersweet happiness, is the ending of A Very Supernatural Christmas
when Sam gives Dean his last Christmas. The Charlie Brown boom hung with car fresheners, the gas station gifts, the things left unsaid- so incredibly beautiful. That episode is the best holiday episode of any toon I’ve ever seen. For me, it touches on the true meaning of Christmas; family and the spirit of giving. It sounds like a cliché but it’s not. It hurt Sam to confront that this was the last Christmas he’d have with his brother, but he did the right thing and gave his brother the best gift ever. A little bit of peace with his family. 48. What are your favoriete aliases?
Dead in the Water: Agents Ford and Hamill (I love it because Kripke has zei that Sam is like Luke Skywalker and Dean is Han Solo) 49. What's your favoriete weapon?
Salt! So versatile. It works against spirits and demons and if u got any left over u can put it on your popcorn. 50. Do u have any theories on Season 5?
Well the only thing I can think of is that either Lucifer possesses Sam of he’s grateful to Sam for freeing him and grants a request. Maybe to hold off on all out Armageddon for awhile? That’s all I’ve got for now. Congrats and thank u fanfly! u were awesome, as usual! awesome, I say! *bows...we're not worthy*
Until volgende time, over and out.
..I'll take the pain and the guilt. I'll even take Sam as is. It's a lot better than being some stepford bitch in paradise..
