#callcastiel 001: SUPERNATURAL LOVE MEME

Calling all fandom! With ~24 hours to go before the Supernatural Season 6 Premiere, I think it's time for a...

What?

Think about what makes your Supernatural heart tick, and put those reasons out in the open. Let loose, express your love and your glee and your secret SPN-related delights.

The key? Be as specific as possible. Don't say things like, "I love me some hot leads" or "demons/angels/ghosts are cool" or "nifty props." That gets you a head nod, a quiet flutter of applause, perhaps.

Dig deeper: "J2's chemistry really shows up on screen--especially when _____...")

And it doesn't mean you have to get all meta and technical! Just specific: "The lilt to Lucifer's voice is SO AWESOME. It's got this almost demure, personable quality to it that feels welcoming, but that just makes him that much more unsettling!"

Or you can zoom in further and focus on a single 3-second scene.

4x02, "Are You There God? It's Me, Dean Winchester." The idea of Bobby making Sam and Dean sleep on the couch/floor is totally endearing to me. :DD

These are the kinds of commentaries you get in obscure comment threads, or maybe in AIM windows, but there really isn't a collective place for them on LJ (to my knowledge)--especially for non-current episodes.

What Else? PICS. MACROS. GIFS. FICLETS. FIC RECS. ICONS. SKETCHES. VIDS. VID RECS. CANON VIDEO CLIPS. Start the love off with any kind of multimedia expression, or comment back to deck out someone else's with glorious pretties!

Why?

To connect. To open yourself. To archive. To express. To reawaken. To find kindred spirits. To come out of the closet. To bask in the (un)holy wonder that is OUR EPIC FANDOM.

Post Script

+ This is a SAFE SPACE for all kinks, fancies, little things of little consequence that you love anyway. I'm sure everyone has their skepticisms, reservations, or complaints, but this is not the place for them.

+ Can't think of anything? Read the meme! Build on your peers, or branch off. If someone digs Castiel's hamburger phase in 5x14, maybe it will inspire you to comment on how much you loved the Novak ladies. Or maybe it'll make you nostalgic for Winchester-pure S1 MotWs--put it out there! (Just don't actively criticize S4/5/6 in the process. Save that for your journal! :P)

+ Though this comm is designed for squee relating to anything SPN (fandom activities, fic, art, RPF, etc.), this particular meme is hyping up the S6 premiere, so please keep your squee canon-centric. Commentary on the cast/crew as related to their roles on the show ("I love Ben Edlund's episodes because..." or "Chad Lindberg as Ash is <33 because...")

+ Signed comments are encouraged--BE PROUD--but anonymous posting is enabled if you're shy.

+ ADVERTISING CODE:








Spread the love, peace out, and pluck those heartstrings!

I love this shirt more than life itself. If I could choose one character to reprise in S6, it would be this shirt.
I AM GOING TO FIND ONE.

I AM GOING TO FIND TWO.

WE ARE GOING TO WEAR THEM, HRRRRRR.


I love the feel of the open road and constant motion in this show. Romanticized, maybe, but it's the ambiance that matters. There's something about fresh air and backroads and crappy highway landmarks that's really earthy and present and awesome.
I love that too. I am not in a place in life where I can take a road trip, so I live through theirs!

Exasperated!Sam is just about the cutest thing in the world. In Mystery Spot and Bad Day at Black Rock, especially.

Mwahaha! I love him so!

I love that Lucifer had to dig his own ditch when he was resurrecting Death in 5x10.
XD you're right! I only watched it once and all 110 eps one after the other, like three weeks ago, so I got them all jumbled in my head. And then I saw the 6th was coming so I celebrating by re-watching from the 3rd again :D

Me toooo. I don't even know why, but I do.
(I love that gif! It's so weird to see anyone on this show laughing!)

I love Sam and Dean because they are self-sacrificing. Think about it, how many people do you know who would go through all that crap to save the world? Most people would run the other way and say, "Screw it all!"

In 'Swan Song', when Dean shows up at the end, I love that he still uses CASSETTE TAPES!

I adored this promo for the finale last year. I finally found it on YT! Now I just need to learn if this is a full song and where to find it. It gives me chills!

Supernatural 5X22 - Swan Song - Season Finale - O'death promo.

I'm not in a place I can actually watch the vid, but is it this song?

Oh Death by Jen Titus

I loo~ve it. ^^

I love Show's ability to go from hilarious to heartbreaking (and sometimes back again) in about 45 minutes.
ME TOO. Like in Mystery Spot, when it's lolol Trickster the entire time, and then all of the sudden, Trickster says, "This is what life is going to be like without your brother." And then Sam gets all ;___; and waaaah.

Or in 5x22. I was in the middle of panicking like whoa when they were all saying goodbye and Sam was about to go drink demon blood and then Sam tells Castiel, "Make sure they're okay" or something and Castiel's like, that's impossible. And then he says, "Oh, you wanted me to lie. SURE. EVERYTHING WILL BE FINE." And Sam is like, ....Don't talk. D:

Which made me go, DO I SOB? DO I LAUGH? DO I ATTEMPT BOTH!?!? WOE IS ME I AM CONFLICTED.

I love that Jared and Jensen have worked together long enough that Jared can be a complete goofball in the background without Jensen breaking character.

Seriously! Everyone, actually-- Jim Beaver, Misha Collins... It's so ridiculous that they can manage like that. XDD Ridiculous, and fabulous.
LUCIFER.

ALL THE TIME.
Lucifer is always relevant!

Den and Castiel and their interactions.

How awesome Supernatural is at creating minor characters, both evil and good.

Dean and how he wants to save everyone and still wants a normal life. Dean's self-sacrificing nature. Dean's sense of humor. Dean's hot body.

Bobby's awesome, his calling the boys "Idjits" when they totally are.

All the awesome villains- Alistair, Azazel, Zachariah, Lucifer, the horsemen, Lilith, Meg.

All the awesome cast that clearly care about each other and are good friends.

The humor and the angst and how the show can pull off both, sometimes in the same scene.

Castiel and his differentness and his becoming more human and yet still clearly not. His coming to care for Dean and then for Sam. His epic drunkness. His bambness and his nerdiness.

John Winchester, especially in early seasons where he was clearly a good father and a good man in spite of having made some mistakes.

I can't get enough of the Sam/Dean codependency. I think my favorite moment in the entire show is the scene in BUABS where Sam and Dean break into the murdered hunters apartment. Dean and Sam watch the surveillance footage, and upon discovering that Sam is the murderer, Dean IMMEDIATELY begins wiping fingerprints and basically covering up his brother's tracks. No other scene has affected me more profoundly, and it's the moment I knew that I was in this for the long haul. It's so unbelievably sexy...the idea of Dean being so desperate to save Sam, to keep him close, that he'd cover up a murder...
There's such amazing ground to tread, re: their codependency, or their attempts at moving away from it (though I honestly think that they're far more codependent now at S5/6, now that they're trying not to be, than ever. XDD).

And BUABS! Such an intense episode. And I loved Sam's reaction to Dean's actions, as you've described above, too.


You are the hottest fucking thing ever. I know you're evil and all, but I can't help but love you.
THIS THIS THIS WITH THE SMIRK!!!

I love all the writing staff; they're such characters and clearly KOOKY ones at that. There's certain tics and vagaries to all of their work; even if there's wtf in some episode (lolol there is always awesome wtf) it's just SO ENDEARING.

Sam goes shirtless or Dean gets randomly shot (without having any impact on the plot of the episode whatsoever) and I'm just like OH SERA. <3 There's suicidal teddy bears or Firefly-esque structure to the dialogue (even though it never feels like Firefly; the wording might be, but the delivery is SPN's) and it's like, EDLUND. And Kripke, of course. And the slightly newer Julie Siege and Dabb/Loflin duo.

IDEK, SO ENDEARING.
I was baffled at the amount of pop knowledge this shows requiers. I'm Argentinean, but nerdy enough to pick up most of the jokes and references, and I don't think I've ever seen so many references in one show before. And that's not counting the music, it deserves a whole new post :D

i love alastair's voice when he was singing "out together dancing cheek to cheek."

i love dean's speech in 'yellow fever' about how they're crazy people and he makes sam listen to the same five albums over and over.
Alistair in general, word. And Zachariah when he was singing "When the Saints Go Marching In"!

And Dean's speech. <3333 I especially loved the albums part. OH BOYS. <3

I love Lisa. When I was catching up on all the back-episodes, 3x02 was one of the last ones I saw because I didn't want to see it. And then I watched it, and I didn't want to see it. But then Lisa came back in S5--and I know it's a point of contention in fandom--but Cindy Sampson just did such a fantastic, layered job, and so did Jensen. AND DEAN LOOKED SO SAD AND LISA LOOKED SO PERTURBED AND WORRIED AND SCARED.

And then I rewatched 3x02 and I totally fell in love with the woman. <3
Yes, me too.

I simply love the way Dean and Lisa look each other in the eye. You can count on one hand the people Dean opens up to like that.

The way Cindy feeds to Jensen, their energy, is freaken awesome.

I'm so hopeful for Dean!

This is Lisa smishing him in 5.22. SHE ROCKS.

I love it when Sam and Dean say things at the same time. But what I love even more? The doubletake Sam does afterward sometimes. It's freaking perfect.
I love that the Winchesters go around looking like shit half the time--more than half, as the show progresses. I like that they're not made up all the time--rather, that they're made up to look like they're not made-up. I may in fact be such an H/Cer that it's one of my very favorite things ABOUT the show, barring only Sam's fantabulous greyhound shirt.
as much as those two CAN look like crap, lolz!!!

Seriously, imagine running into Sam or Dean in real life. SCARY. YET, wouldn't you love to see them in action!!!
I LOVE DEAN KISSING SCENES *perv*


I don't know if I did this right, but I figure Jensen's/Dean's lips are always relevant.
YOU DID IT TOTALLY RIGHT. :D

And yes, yes they are.

I LOVE THE IMPALA. She's Dean's baby. Her engine purrs, her doors creak; she eats up the road and kicks up the dirt. She's been there from the start and she never lets them down. She carries them down back roads and dirt roads and highways and straight into cemeteries, right into the thick of the battle like a soldier. She saved the world.

She's HOME.

Photobucket
SHE TOTALLY IS. Don't you love it when they come from somewhere, slow down and park, and you can hear the "brrrrrrrrrrrrrrr" while they talk about whatever it is they're talking? It feels like a warm place :)

I Love These Women

I love how they fight, fall, pick themselves back up, and never give the Winchesters' an inch. The show may have been about the boys, but they met some exceptional women on both sides of the fight.

This, so very much. I love that you gave us pictures, too; it makes me fall in love with these lovely ladies all over again. And omg, PAMELA. <33

Jo was my first love. Her attitude, her backstory, her relationship with Ash, and Ellen, and the Winchesters (and her gorgeous smile). And then Ellen, for being a mother and a badass and a roadhouse proprietor and so much else.

Bela for her charm--and again, her relationship with the boys. I loved that she clearly wasn't just about the money. She was, on some level, but you could tell she valued her relationship, if an odd one, with the Winchesters. The writer's strike probably deprived us of more Bela, alas, but even truncated her end was one of the vest best, and one of the most chilling, imho.

Pamela! For being loud and unapologetic and unrepressed, unlike almost everyone else. But still damaged. For being her own person.

Meg, for being the GREATEST EVER, and for always coming back for more. Ruby, too. I could talk about them for days.

Lisa I did talk about, but words alone cannot express how in love I am with her.
Oh, hell yes. The scene in 3x12 (Right? Dream a Little Dream of Me?) terrified me--Dean and demon!Dean both. And that snap of the lights at the end? /shudders Fantastic.

* I love the freedom of the road, and constant changing of scenes, those little villages where horrible things happen have a definite lure on me.

* I'm an enormous geek, so I love digging out old tales and myths and saying, hey, that's actually true.

* I love family stories, and lost people trying to find their way, and these boys happen to be both.

* Dean. All about Dean. His fierce devotion towards his brother, his painful insecurity and self-hatred, his vulnerability, his noble soul, it's all incredibly moving.

* I'd never seen the show before, except for a few eps back on the first season, and then I wanted to see what the fuss was about and watched all of it in a week and a half 8DDD
I absolutely SPAZZED at the first mention of Crowley, I couldn't believe it! I had caught a few hints here and there, but introducing a new demon and calling it Crowley of all things... I nearly wept with joy.

* The OMGWHATNAO tension and Castiel and last-minute saviours and Castiel and the music and the Horsemen and Dad and Mum and Home. Did I mention Castiel?

I could go on for hours, but it's been an awfully long day and I need to be alive tomorrow :D
My feelings at 5.30 am when I finished watching Swan Song about two weeks ago: NOOOEZ

I love that they tell each other to get out of the way before they start shooting at ghosts.

It just.

Yeah. It tickles me.
I love that instead of taking a camera picture of the coin in the Wishing Well episode, they took a damn graphite rubbing.

YOU BOYS AND YOUR TECHNOLOGIES. XD
Lol yeahwut? I mean, sometimes they have all these fancy technologies and they're all high-tech,

AND THEN SOMETIMES, IT'S LIKE THEY LIVE IN THE MEDIEVAL TIMES...
I love that SPN is the only show that makes me feel as if I actually know the characters involved. I love that this is the only show that can make me cry as if I actually saw a friend get hurt, or watch one die. I love how this show can make me laugh and cheer me up when I have a bad day. I love how it makes me worry for its characters.

It might be weird, but this is the only show that made me look forward for every weekend for 5 years.
Fairly early on in my ridiculous obsession with this show, I thought to myself, I love these characters like they're family. If the writing or whatever ever rubs me the wrong way, it frustrates me like my family would, not like 'wow, this is such shit' would. Their stresses and their angst worry me in a very, human, connected way (though I take far more pleasure in this than I would the plights of any real people I cared about, obviously...).

The beginning of this summer was kind of rocky for me, but watching/fandoming SPN always made me feel better. Both the show and the fandom. ♥ ♥ ♥
