So we had Alaina Huffman at Perth OzComicCon this weekend and she managed to do some sightseeing on Monday & Tuesday. Today she tweeted this:



Rob replied soon after:



ROTFLMAO at Rob's hashtags! :-) Hilariously brilliant!!!

Saw this on Twitter:



My response:



Am forever grateful that Jared doesn't have what seems to be the Hollywood standard short back & sides/buzzcut. His beautiful flowing, layered locks are almost ARE a character in their own right.

Saw this on Tumblr thanks to Safa's tweet:


BabyBrotherDean:

It’s weirdly uplifting that AKF 5 doesn’t have a campaign goal to meet. Every other campaign has absolutely hit it out of the park, and Jared has so much confidence that we can do it again. Plus, there’s just something really heartening about getting to the checkout page and seeing the words “your shirt will be printed when the campaign is successful.”

Not if. When.

Maybe you’re not doing so great right now, and maybe it’s hard to love yourself and to keep fighting- and maybe I’m reading into this too much- but getting better? Finding the light at the end of that tunnel, or the thing that’s worth fighting for, or whatever makes it that little bit easier to love yourself? This feels like Jared saying that it will happen. You will get there, and you will be okay.

It’s not an if. It’s a when.

With the devastating news this week of the passing of David Bowie and just tonight, Alan Rickman, I really needed something to cheer me up. Then I saw this tweet from Rob Benedict and a huge grin spread over my face. Just what I needed!!!! Thanks Jared, Jensen, Rich, Rob, Osric and Jason!!!!

Saw this tweet from @clarissa373 and my heart broke more than a little. Not because of the article which I haven't read as I don't want to be spoiled but from the (over) reaction it's apparently garnered from some corners of our wide-ranging, diverse and amazingly passionate fandom.

I know there have always been and will always be fights and flame-wars between different parts of fandom (Samgirls vs Deangirls, Wincester's vs Destiel) but it seems to be getting worse and more over the top. This is one more reason I try to stay as spoiler free as possible. So I can avoid all the fan-wanking and fights that seem to come with even the most vague spoilers. 



Blanket statement re: Castiel & Dean - if, perchance, you've read my recent Misha spoiler article (http://www.tvovermind.com/supernatural/supernatural-spoilers-misha-collins-reveals-castiel-fate/#comment-356401) please do not jump to conclusions about Castiel and Dean fighting or not speaking or whatever other assumption you might make just because I happened to write that Castiel and Sam might spend a little time together.

First, the two of them have had a rocky relationship, so there's hardly anything wrong with spending some time together. Second, Misha and Jared really wanted an opportunity to riff on each other in good fun. Third, Misha spoke about Sam because we happened to ask him something akin to "if Cas is jealous of Benny [which we know since it's previously been published], then might he spend any time with Sam?" It's a perfectly innocent question born out of an established dislike between characters (Castiel and Benny). Misha specifically said they had only just started to explore any dynamic between Sam and Castiel. That HARDLY means they're going to run off into the sunset together and forget all about Dean, Amelia and/or the dog.

There's no adverse Dean & Castiel conclusions to be made here. And it hardly means that Dean is going to be written off the show or SPN will become the Castiel/Sam variety hour (although that might actually be amusing). What happens with them or any other friendships is up to everyone - including me - to see.


So, it seems to me from what Clarissa has written here and reading some of the comments, that the Dean/Cas fans are upset, (jealous even) at the thought of Sam, (one of the 2 lead characters) having 1 or possibly more scenes alone with another major character that has been on the show for 4 seasons and who played such a significant part in Sam's storyline. That it will suddenly turn into the Sam/Cas show with Dean on the sidelines or even (gasp) written out of show!!!!

Funny thing is, I seem to recall all of these same fears coming from Sam-fans when Cas was introduced in season 4. The more things change, the more they stay the same, huh? And now, with Benny as Dean's new BFF & substitute brother, some Cas and Sam fans are feeling left out and having to commiserate each other.

I, for one, am really looking forward to seeing some more in-depth interaction between Sam and Cas. I even still have a tiny bit of hope that it may one day be revealed to either Sam or Dean or both that it was Cas who let Sam out of the panic room in 4:21, thus enabling Sam to kill Lillith and break the final seal.

To end on a lighter note, I got a chuckle out of reason #2: Second, Misha and Jared really wanted an opportunity to riff on each other in good fun.--- I just hope Jared will go easy on Misha and let him do his coverage without too much interference, but I'm not holding my breath that Jared will behave. Am hoping for some gag-reel goodies from those scenes.
