SUPERNATURAL LOVE MEME MAY 2011

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

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: 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 Mary-as-Eve in the diner in 6x19, maybe it will inspire you to comment on how much you love Rufus. Or hell, 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 promotes squee relating to anything SPN (fandom activities, fic, art, RPF, etc.), this particular meme is hyping up the S6 finale, 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 "Jim Beaver does SUCH a good job in such-and-such a scene...")

+ THIS IS A SPOILER-FREE ZONE FOR ALL INFORMATION CONCERNING 6x21 and 6x22. The rest of the series is fair game.

+ ADVERTISING CODE:








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

I love Sam and Dean's co-dependency and how they just can't seem to function correctly without each other. Any episode that highlights this or their utter devotion to each other is just pure love for me.

I ♥ these wonderful, beautiful, fucked-up boys.

I know, right? I've been rewatching with my flatmate. We're now up to the end of S3, but all through S1 and 2 I was just like OH GOD THEY'VE ALWAYS BEEN LIKE THAT. THIS ISN'T SOME NEW DYSFUNCTION AS I THOUGHT. THEY'VE ALWAYS BEEN LIKE THAT. XDDDD

And we love them for it.
Dean and Castiel's eyesex and awkward flirting and tragically doomed sort-of romance. Dean struggling to believe in Cas even though he knows better.

Sammy being ACTUAL SAMMY AND NOT ROBOSAM. The hug in 6.12! <3

Crowley going on and on about those DENIM-WRAPPED NIGHTMARES, because he is the only one who gets it.

"I remember the Tower of Babel - all 37 feet of it, which I suppose was impressive at the time. And when it fell they howled, "Divine Wrath!" But come on, dried dung can only be stacked so high."

Dean's self-analysis: "You shove it down and you let it come out in spurts of violence and alcoholism...it works for me."

/so needed this meme today.

I love the part in 6x19 where Sam and Dean crash through the door of the would-be!shifter's house so hard that it almost smacks them on the ricochet.

RANDOM yes, but it was adorbs. Crappy cap is crappy.

Actual clip, so you know what in hell I'm even talking about:





...I fixate, okay? XP
My favorite thing in the world is introducing Show to people, and having them get all invested in it. It meant especially much when my siblings liked it, because age difference can make a big difference.

My little brother is my favorite convert:

I think I love your little brother. In a totally non-creepy way.

Love for Jensen because I can't think of another person in this world who can make me piss my pants so bad because of his comedic talent and then at the exact same time make me wet my pants in a totally different way. We were just watching "Yellow Fever" the other day with a friend and we both just kept going "HAHAHHAHAHAHA-..OMG HE'S SOOO HOT" all the time.
So yeah, much love for Jensen for combining those two feelings I never associated together before :D

Just look at him..





And Love for Jared for growing up during the show from this most adorable, cute little nerdy boy...




....to the sexiest hunk on earth <3




And most importantly just lots of love for the amazing chemistry between these two characters, the kind that still makes me wear my stupid tin-hat in secret, wives or no wives and actually makes me think that not-so-innocent-love between brothers is totally believable and natural.
Because just the looks alone make me melt.

Love that Jensen gif! And love your little Jared to big Jared gifs! So hot. And I never seemed to catch those looks when I saw the show by myself, but one day in fandom made me go and look back and think, "oh." lol I love those boys.

I love Sam's hair. To, like, a ridiculous degree. I think I didn't like season four very much because Sam's hair bothered me. BUT NOW. IT IS SO FLUFFY AND PRETTY. I LOVE IT. <3
Me too! I loved season1-2 hair the most. Season 4, not as much. But now... fluffy and lush!

The boys just loving each other. That's the best thing about this show. Not even in a subtext way (which I happen to enjoy immensely), but them just being those co-dependent brothers that can't be bothered with a world where they're not even brothers. Their epic love is undeniable.

I loved their reaction to the alternate world in 6x15. "Let's get our crazy show back home" indeed. And I agree; when it really comes down to it, that's the whole story, right there. Even in the midst of their awesome co-stars, guest stars, etc., it's Sam and Dean at the heart of it. I just. Adore them, at all stages of their relationship.

I love Gwen's uncanny physical resemblance to Clarice. Somehow, watching Silence of the Lambs gives Gwen the screentime and backstory she never got the chance to show in canon. ;P

... whoa. *stares*

I love what Sera did with season 6. I'm not gonna say it was perfect; nothing is. I'm not gonna say I loved it 200%, all the time, because that's creepy. But all the cast and crew gave it their all and they did their best and they pushed boundaries like nobody's business; and their willingness to do so has always been one of Show's greatest strengths.

There's a low frequency emotional tenor to S6 that's keenly aware of everything that's happened in seasons past--emotionally and characteristically if not always logically :P. "Back to basics" or no, there's no going back, and everyone--cast/crew, the characters themselves--knows it. Show's growing up and it knows where it's been.

I'd love to see where it goes next.
OH, THIS. I couldn't have said it better.

I love how supportive of/obliging of /tolerant of/bemused by our crazy the SPN professionals are.

This is just one example:



The Twitter-owning? The con-going? Press releases? Interviews? Photos? It's partly commercial/business, yeah, but it's also for us. And we're what matters most, obviously!!!

Ahhhh, Dean!! And Sammy!! And Bobby!! And Castiel!! And Crowley!! And Balthy!!

You want a good read before kick off? Anything by smilla02, gaelicspirit and MirrorDance (on FF.NET) will get you going nicely! The angst, the delicious horror, the love and sacrifice! What is not to love?!
Love, my heart is bursting with it.

And I've not yet had the pleasure of reading Gaelicspirit or Mirrordance, but Smilla02 is a beautiful person, and a beautiful writer. ♥ ♥!

I'm a total newb who hasn't even seen all the episodes yet, and I LOVE EVERYTHING! I had killer insomnia last week and caught two random Season 5 episodes (how TNT decided 7 and 8am were the best times to rerun it here, I have no idea) that I was able to follow easily, on no sleep at all, which is an amazing experience for a (conflicted) Lostie. I'm really interested in this sort of material and heard about/saw bits of SPN through fandom osmosis and a friend for years, but it only just clicked for me. The Dean/Cas fic and general slashiness helped me along quite a bit, and I've really enjoyed the half of this season I've seen. And as a pagan, it always means a lot to me to see pentacles used correctly. I'm always late to these things, but then I can marathon it all, which I love.
Eeeeeee, I love it when new people find Show! And even more, fandom. I'm so glad you're enjoying everything. (And omggggggg there is so much moreeeeee!!!!)

And ahaha, I know what you mean about being aware of SPN and having it only just click. A friend of mine showed me an episode back in 2006 and I was like LOL WHAT IS THIS. I didn't realize my ~transcendent love~ for SPN until late 2009. Well worth the wait, though; well worth the wait.

WELCOME TO SPN FANDOM. ♥

Also, there's a pretty epic Dean/Cas vid linked upthread a bit you might enjoy.

Deeeeeaaaaannnnn. The fainting moment in "Faith." The migrainey moment in AHBL2 with Bobby all loving him up. The scene in "Fresh Blood" where Sam is all "Shut up I know you're scared because I have giant giant Dean radar and maaaany hours of observation under my belt, I could write the fucking Encyclopedia of Dean so just shhhh, take it easy, hang out with me, we'll get you all safe and sound." The fainty moment in "Fresh Blood" where Dean's all blood-loss-y up against the wall. Bobby being so MAD after Dean sold his soul and so sad for his baby and grabbing his face in the junkyard. Augh such a good pseudo-dad. Ellen being all "Oh wow, I'm sorry kid" in ELAC and Dean being like "Yeah whatever" and her being like, "No really..." and him being like, "DON'T TOUCH ME you don't know me back off." Ohhhhhh for onscreen h/c of the Ellen variety. She showed from the first she would have rocked at that. And then, and then there are all these people around, like fangirls, who GET how good it is when Dean has sadtimes or wobbly times or hurt sick times and squee about them and write about them and make memes about them. *salutes*
In Faith when Sam tries to help Dean out of the car and Dean shrugs him off irritably. In Fresh Blood when Dean gives Sam a lesson in Auto Mechanics/Brotherly Love. In AHBL when Sam says "Did you sell your soul for me?" In My Heart Will Go On when Ellen says of Bobby: "I'm kicking his ass back to health." That is just so quintessentially Ellen.

We could go on like this for a long, long time...

Oh god Las. <333 Where did you get your hands on this. Also, awkwardly, because Castiel was in shadow here, at first I thought he was Meg's Silent Brother from S1.

AND THAT AUDIO. NGGGGH.

I love everything about Supernatural! Sorry, I can't be more specific than that!

Oh yes, I can.

How angsty Dean was in AHBL II.

How funny Sam was in Changing Channels.

How awkward Cas was when watching porn in (I forgot the episode!)

How tired Bobby was when he finally reached his house after breaking into the library in Weekend at Bobby's.

Some of my faves. :)
I was totally thinking about the beginning of AHBL II last night! Those scenes were absolutely phenomenal. They blow me away every time.

Sampala. :DDD And I loved Sam's sunglasses CSI crack, with the hair flip and all.

The Cas-watching-porn-episode was 6x10, Caged Heat. :) THE POOR GUY. XDD

Oh, Bobby. <3 That episode had so many great little scenes and parallels.
Dean's stupid pretty colt . It just makes me happy.
I Agree!

I think I will put here what I always use to pitch the show to my friends:

I have never seen a show that mananges to be so angsty and heartbreakingly sad while making me laugh so hard about it often at the same time AND really always has so suprising plot twists that I just sit at the edge of my seat.

Its just something so rare and wonderful, because it means that the show has made me care so much about the characters and their relationships that I'm just swept away with the tide.

Now I'm off to have me some Supernatural convention XD
ARE YOU GOING TO AECON?

I don't think I could ever accurately describe what it is about Supernatural that makes me love it so much. Sure, there's the obvious stuff like OMGHOTBOYS, but there's so much more. I'm so terrible with words most of the time, but when I try to put affection into words, I fail all over the place.
I love Supernatural. I just do. Hopefully someday I will be able to actually articulate my adoration properly. Until then, I will watch and laugh and cry and worry and sigh and angst and be amazed and be confused and get angry and be annoyed and be surprised and be blown away and continue to look for ways to explain myself.

Easy answer: Sam and Dean in all their unhealthily co-dependent glory. ♥ The dysfunctional family dynamics hooked me back in S1 and they are still the reason I am here, 6 years later.

I adore especially Supernatural's spotlight on the two sides of love. Sam and Dean's love for each other is their greatest strength, but also their greatest weakness; it saves them, but it also almost destroys them. Their love gives them the greatest sense of fulfilment and yet it limits their ability to grow as individuals. I don't know many shows that are this uncompromising about the darker and uglier sides of love, while still emphasising its beauty.
The first episode I ever watched was In My Time of Dying. The TV just happened to be on while I was puttering around, and the next thing I knew I was glued to the set. I thought the show was just about things that go bump in the night, but when I saw there was so much more--especially that family dynamic that runs through everything--I was hooked.

I just LOVE all the irreverent, whimsical, ballsy, dark humour. Black-and-white monster movie, old-timey western, the sickest, most twisted Christmas special ever, trickster-induced satyres of other shows, Supernatural fan convention in Supernatural, angel clueless about cell phones and air quotes, another angel who hates Céline Dion, Sam losing his shoe, manic-depressive teddy bears who shoot their brain stuffing out, Bobby asking a gore-splattered woman on a date, AU where Sam and Dean are Jared and Jensen and cannot act to save their lives, I am the Prophet Chuck! AND SO MUCH MORE! I marvel at how this show can scare the crap out of me and break my heart and then make me laugh so hard I spill ginger ale all over my dog.
This list is a thing of wonder. I have a pretty fail sense of humor, but I feel like SPN has given me one (along with the mentality of an oversexed, violence-happy nine year old). BUT ALL OF THESE THINGS YOU MENTION HERE ARE SUCH LOOOOOOVE. Some of the things this shows has or says, I can't believe they even allow on TV. Pushing the envelope, for sure.

I marvel at how this show can scare the crap out of me and break my heart and then make me laugh so hard I spill ginger ale all over my dog.

Your poor dog! But omg, yes. I've mentioned it on another thread somewhere in here, but the emotional whiplash Show orchestrates is stuff of legend.
