The pain that Supernatural brings me sometimes pales to insignificance to the pain I feel today. I not only weep for America but for the world. What an utterly devastating outcome. I don't think I have ever felt this level of despair for the state of the world.

Dear Supernatural,

More like that!
Please and thank you <3

Yours lovingly

Hey. I wanted to share a short conversation I had with bookdal on Twitter because I think she made some interesting observations on the boys and Mary (posted with her permission).

I posted this comment:

and this exchange happened )

When I sit down to write these I usually have a clear idea how I felt about the episode. This one is different - I can't seem to settle on a clear response so this pretty mixed up...(but mostly positive *g*)

1. How long have you been on LiveJournal?

*checks profile* Since August 2006 (dammit!! I missed my 10th anniversary!)

2. How did you come up with your online name(s)? Does it have any special meaning?

The very first SPN on-line account I created was for FF.net and I had NO idea what to call myself so I picked my daughter's name and her birth date (Ash8). Then I wanted to create an account for LJ and "Ash8" was taken so I then took her birth month and birth date and mashed it up and Ash48 was made. On YouTube "Ash48" was taken so I added her birth year and Ash4897 was born. My poor daughter!

3. Why did you join LJ?

It was where it was all happening back in 2006 - before Tumblr and Twitter and whatever else is out there now. It had all the fic, meta, pics, community... It was amazing. *g*

4. What do you like about it? What keeps you active here?

I love the conversation format. It beats all other fandom social sites for that. Twitter is great for small, instant chat but misinterpretations are rife. Tumblr is just damn messy (but pretty!). I am less active than I used to be but I stay active because I love the people I've met here. I feel a greater connection to fellow fans more than I do anywhere else. I love the interaction, and the flexibility of formatting.

5. Do you remember what made you add me as a friend? If so, what was it?

Ah, well. I took this from a few mutual friends so I won't answer this specifically. I will say that the reason I added YOU is because I either - thought you were awesome and I felt like we shared something in common or you friended me and I like making mutual friends. :)

6. Where in the world do you live? (Feel free to be as specific/unspecific as you'd like, lol. I just like seeing how far spread my online friends are :))

I live in Perth, Western Australia. In a lovely little suburb called Bassendean. :)

7. Tell me one random/happy/good thing about your day! :)

I am now riding my bike to work every day! This is huge for me because I've never done this before. I love it! :)

It's weird isn't it. We spend months and months waiting for the show to return and then when it has returned we spend months and months angsting over it. Some episodes create positive angst, some create negative angst.

This episode created a bit of both of those for me. So, ya know, nothing new really...;)

(this got rather long. Seems I had a bit to unpack...*oops*)

Mamma Mia, here I go again )
ash48: (A mother's love)
Dear Supernatural,

Welcome back!! You knocked it out of the park! \o/

Lots of Love
Me.

I think I can safely say that is my fave season opener after 2.01 (In My Time of Dying). I know 4.01 (Lazarus Rising) is pretty damn awesome too, but as it was the beginning of a season of secrecy between Sam and Dean I think I'd put that slightly behind this one.

This episode had a lot to achieve in a very short time. I'm happy to say that it not only achieved everything it had to, but it achieved it all so damn well. It was wonderfully paced and deftly crafted. There was an underlying sense of urgency and yet it never felt rushed. It even managed to get in some humour. I am so proud of my show!!

Nice to be able to squee again )

Hey fellow vidders (you know who you are!), if you have a couple of minutes [livejournal.com profile] kimberlyfdr's would love you to fill out her vidding survey. It's pretty quick and easy to do. She's half way through her needed sample size so needs a few more peeps to fill it out. Help out a fellow fan if you can. :)

More information about it all here.
ash48: (Batcave Legs up)
It's lovely to see discussion still happening on LJ. [livejournal.com profile] dugindeep has posted a discussion on leaving feedback on fanworks and about fandom in general. Worth a read - some interesting thoughts have been shared.

Hope you are all well. I know I am guilty of not posting anything lately but I am enjoying my hiatus. The play is keeping me busy *g*. I'm looking forward to S12 now - I miss seeing my boys on the screen. <3

Popping by to say I hoped I managed to thank everyone personally for their birthday messages. They meant a lot so here's an extra thank you! <33

I also want to give a shout out to the lovely mods at [livejournal.com profile] spn_littlebro. Especially to [livejournal.com profile] ayane42 for taking over the newsletter compiling while I'm on a hiatus. And to [livejournal.com profile] nahemaraxe for doing an amazing job with the littlebro tumblr.

It appears I don't know how to be in fandom any more. It's discombobulating.
ash48: (Star gazing)
It seems I am surprisingly chill about this episode (I know! Knock me over with a feather). In fact, I even have some nice things to say about it. :)

So the title was not referring to werewolf fanfic after all )
ash48: (That's Just not right)
Warning for negativity (though I'm probably more bewildered and sarcastic than anything else). I want to be squeeful. I do! I really really do! But.../o\

so, the joke is on us then? )
ash48: (4th Wall OTP)
I was actually sad to hear that Robbie Thompson is leaving the show. Even though I have major issues with the last episode he wrote (which actually make some sense now in light of the news) I have always enjoyed his episodes. I thought he brought some interesting ideas and characters into the Supernatural universe. He gave us some wonderful brother moments and always found ways of telling an interesting, inventive story. Sure, he liked to fan service and I have very mixed feelings about that, but I do think he genuinely liked the show.

On that note, I want/need to say more about the last episode. With that clarification I can (hopefully) articulate things a bit better. It's still negative so please be warned.

Also, thanks to those who chatted with me about the last episode (and don't feel you need to with this! I'm mostly writing this to help me ;D). I am always appreciative that people are happy to discuss an ep, even when my reaction is completely different to theirs. I do respect that we view episodes differently.

Oops, this got quite long.

11.20, fan servicing and why some stuff annoyed me )
ash48: (That's Just not right)
A very short, very negative reaction. Please be warned (I mean it. Not a happy camper - so, you know, don't click).

(*meep* and my comments are full of unmitigated bitterness too. So yeah. Don't read! You know the drill!)

at least there was ironing )
ash48: (I watched)
This got a little long. I felt like I could write about this one forever *g*. Such a beautifully layered episode.

The Hunting Life - an exploration of loss, love and happy endings. )
ash48: (Dean & vid camera)
Hi guys. I'm starting this request on LJ and see how it goes. If I need to I'll branch out to twitter/tumblr etc but I thought I'd start here first.

I would like to gather some photos/footage of fans enjoying the company of other fans - so maybe fans hanging out at a con together, fans hugging each other, laughing smiling etc (being generally supportive etc). I only want photos with permission - as in your own personal pics that you would be happy to share (in a public vid). I appreciate that not many fans would want their pics in a vid, but if you didn't mind then I'd love to be able to use them (with the disclaimer that if I get a lot I won't be able to use them all ;D). I'd also love some pics/footage of fans reacting with the cast if anyone has that (like photo ops etc).

I have screened this entry if you would like to attach a pic or I can be contact by email at ash48@aapt.net.au or via a LJ private message. Please feel free to ask me questions if you'd like.

Thanks!

Dare I ask a question about Sam Winchester? (I think I do *g*)

So. Each time I see Sam described as "whiny and selfish" (which is rather often) it makes me think about actual moments in the show when he IS whiny and selfish. It makes me wonder what exactly Sam has done to deserve that description time and time again? Surely it must be a consistent characterisation to warrant that label.

Some of my own thoughts... )
