i’d like to apologize in advance for my reaction when this man hits the screen on saturday.
After squealing like a stuck pig over my ability to score tickets to go see the most anticipated movie of May 2013 that I really don’t want to go see, I send the husband the email he had to be expecting: “CUMBERTREK!!!!!!!!!!!!! Saturday. 12:30. Salisbury”
I get back: “sounds good”.
He can’t even be bothered to add caps. Or punctuation.
You know you’ve been together too long when he doesn’t even comment on the crazy. It’s like it’s expected now.
i have found my people!
Dropping this here so I don’t lose the link later… (aren’t you glad this blog has become a catch-all for my BBC obsession?)
How awesome is this list?I LOVE the fact that “Fuck you, I won a BAFTA” is on here.
i believe the phrase is either “hng” or “unf”
The husband is willingly taking me to see Star Trek Into Darkness because of my obsession with this fine man. Neither one of us have any interest in Star Trek, even though Quinto’s in it (and also the adorable Chris Pine… how has he not been on my radar?!?).
I’ve been down in the dumps and it will give me a few hours of Benedistraction.
And he knows it, so he’ll suffer through my ridiculous fangirling every time the Cumbercutie is on screen.
He’s pretty awesome (my husband, not the Cumberbabe, although…) and some days I really wonder why he still hangs around here. I would have left a long time ago.
Parts like this are EXACTLY why “Cabin Pressure” has become my New Favorite Thing.
I listened to all four series and the Christmas Special this past weekend when I drove to Albany and back… and we’re not even going to talk about how many times I’ve listened to bits and pieces of it since it fell on my radar.
this is one of my favorite scenes. ever.
I started watching Supernatural because, well, two hot boys!
Then, the show turned into something more than just an hour of tv a week…
The fan base became a family. A sometimes dysfunctional family, but still a family.
We’ve moved mountains when we’ve needed to: winning awards for the cast, raising thousands for charities the cast believes in, sending metric ass-tons of rubber ducks to Vancouver just because we can, and following Misha Collins on a journey of creativity never before imagined. Did I mention we pissed Twitter off? (I can’t remember now, but I think the hashtag was #LuciferIsComing.)
Then, I attended two SPNCons…
I was actually moved to tears at BOSCON when I saw how much actors who were on like one episode appreciated the fans. And we love them back. We miss them. We start petitions to have them return to the show.
When I get upset, lonely, depressed, etc. SPN offers me an escape by allowing me to follow two brothers whose lives are much more fucked up than mine. Maybe that’s shitty, but at least I take pleasure from watching fictional characters suffer instead of people.
The writing too - the writing on this show is amazing. On tumblr, the SPN fandom plays a lot of “is this actual dialogue or not?” We also play “is this a scene or a gag reel outtake?” (Hint: it’s almost ALWAYS from the show, never a gag reel.)
While I’m on the topic of the writing… Destiel, dude. Fucking Destiel. There was a lot of wank about a fan’s treatment at NJCON this year because they brought up bisexuality during Jensen’s panel. The question was never heard by Jensen - the fan was yanked out of line specifically because talking about Destiel makes him uncomfortable. It’s not that he, personally, is uncomfortable with homo/bisexuality, but he’s uncomfortable with the way the fandom obsesses over his character’s relationship with another male character. (And let’s not even bring up wincest. It’s exactly what it sound like. *shudders*)
I don’t care who you are, or what you’re into, but if you watch the relationship between Dean and Castiel develop over the seasons… dude, that’s love right there. Regardless of what the fandom does with it, that is some serious bromance. It’s such an important part of the mythology of the show, it’s become canon and occasionally, the writers, Jensen and Misha will toss the fandom a bone. It’s never been more clear than it was during last week’s episode. Cas buys Dean a pr0n mag and goes postal on a store clerk because he doesn’t have any pie. (Dean and pie, man, that’s another OTP… to be dissected on another day.)
I’ve been watching the marathons on TNT every morning while I look for a job. After I do that, I get on tumblr and spend time with my SPN family.
It makes me feel better, not that much can right now, but it does a little bit.
I’ll take what I can get… and did I mention? Two. Hot. Boys.
