Reply and I'll give you four fandoms. You then have to make an entry writing about your favorite character from each fandom, and why.

[ profile] mithrel gave me: Supernatural, NCIS, Inception, SGA )

The other night, [ profile] olivelavonne and I spent a good deal of time on the phone discussing SPN. (Mostly it was about the finale and what we'd like to see next, and partly it was her talking me off the ledge re:fic.)

But she pointed out something about Chuck.

Spoilers )

SG-1 came on after Merlin. Mom made the observation that they have a good budget. They could've done the apocalypse up real good.

ME: Supernatural had a good budget. What did they even spend all of it on?
MOM: I think they spent it all on nose candy.

Makes as much sense as anything.

The SG-1 episode is "Redemption, Pt. 1." McKaaaaaay! Also, hi Jonas! Hi!

From [ profile] shetiger: When you see this message, post in your journal with your favorite Season 5 SPN quote.

"Cas, not for nothing, but the last person who looked at me like that...I got laid."

Golly, Dean. I think Cas is the only person who looks at you like that...

Not necessarily my favorite quote, but one I love. It's too hard for me to pick a favorite.
annundriel: ([spn] Castiel)
Does Castiel have a heartbeat?

Can he feel it beat underneath his ribs?

If something happened and they took him to a hospital, would the doctors be all "wtf?"

I guess the connected question is, does he breath?

I'm really just curious. I've written about Castiel being breathless enough to be like, "Whatever. My fic, my rules." But I'm working on a thing now and had something heart-related came up and am now curious about what y'all think.
annundriel: ([spn] Only Begun to Scratch the Surface)
So I finished typing this and then I was hesitating over the "post" button and I realized it was because I'm afraid the Castiel I try to write, while feeling in-character to me, may read as OOC to other people. You don't want to be like "This is how I see things" and then have someone call you on the fact that it doesn't translate.

But oh well.

If this post is extra nuts and doesn't flow well, it's because I'm hungry and dinner is waiting and I'm too impatient to re-read it now. :P

Yesterday [ profile] aesc posted The Casifesto; or, Why Castiel is not your grandma's angel. It is a post of brilliance and, in my opinion, should be required fandom reading. Also, there are pretty pictures.

I read it yesterday, and a little while ago [ profile] lattimore happened to point it out to me again.

And then an amazing thing happened: I realized what made me stop reading SPN fic like I was starving and it was cake.

Going under a cut because, well, it got long and maybe non-sensical )
annundriel: ([spn] As Far as I Can Go)
01. The other day [ profile] sdrohc_ratiug were texting each other what it would be like if Eric Kripke did Buffy and Joss Whedon did Supernatural. Then there were crossovers. It was entertaining.

[ profile] annundriel: If SPN were done by Whedon, Dean and Cas would make out.
[ profile] sdrohc_ratiug: Haha it's true. But he would also break everyone's heart and EVERYONE WOULD DIE.

It's a win-lose situation.

02. Just want to send a big thank you to [ profile] wynna_pendragon for the v-gift! I've been in a bit of a rut lately and it totally made my day. <3

03. Writing briefs is not my favorite thing to do ever.

04. Finished reading Joe Hill's short story collection 20th Century Ghosts. Really enjoyed it. Got it from the library and may have to buy my own copy. I'm still trying to figure out all of the implications of "My Father's Mask." (A story which you should not read in the middle of the night because you may be woken up an hour later by the dog barking and the sound of doors opening and closing and start thinking about how in-the-middle-of-nowhere you are and people in masks and so-on.)

05. There is no 5.

Because some days you just need a .gif of Castiel looking ridiculously pretty to get through the day. Mmmhmmm.

That stare. Those eyes. The eyelashes, which I didn't notice in this much before but are suddenly, oh my, a bit of a fixation. The cheekbones. The mouth.

Outside of objectifying, I love that stare. I love that there's so much in it, both in that moment in particular and on the show in general, that you really do get the sense that there is something otherworldly behind it. Non-human. Not inhuman, because there's a certain coldness to that and Castiel has shown himself to be anything but. Try as he might have to fight it, Dean's influence is strong.

Don't mind me. I am feeling massive love for Castiel today. Not any different from how I usually feel about the character, but today it's hitting me like a ton of bricks.

And now, back to writing.
annundriel: ([spn] Bound to Lose My Meaning)
[ profile] sdrohc_ratiug brought this up on Friday.

Spoilers for 5.13 )
annundriel: ([spn] Curiouser & Curiouser)
Not speculative or spoilery about upcoming events (because I am UNSPOILED GO ME), but going under a cut anyway.

Question )
annundriel: ([spn] Detective Story)
I had a creepy SPN-related dream Thursday night.

Sam and Dean were in a hospital. )

Aaaand now I'm thinking about how cool it would be if Supernatural were directed by Guillermo del Toro. OMG. It would be AWESOME.

Excuse me while I go flail just thinking about it.

ETA: Haha, so I was thinking del Toro's scary stuff, like The Devil's Backbone. Mom, however, suggests a crossover with Hellboy. "Can't you just see Castiel going, 'What the fuck? He's a demon.' and Dean being all, 'He's Hellboy. We can't send Hellboy back to hell!'"

And then, she added, someone would have to point out to Sam, "Hey, we found someone bigger than you!"

Have I mentioned lately how much I love my mom? 'cause, seriously. I do.
annundriel: ([spn] Exciting!)
I think so!

I joined [ profile] sdrohc_ratiug while she ran errands today. And we got pho. Oh, pho. It'd been more than a week. I'm surprised I wasn't going into withdrawal. The only thing better than having them set the bowl in front of you and getting that first smell is taking the first bite. It's crazy how much I love this stuff.

Why else is Thursday good? Not only is Project Runway on (I enjoyed last week's premiere), SUPERNATURAL IS BACK. IN ALL OF IT'S APOCALYPTIC, TRENCHCOATED, BATMAN VOICED, FLOPPY HAIRED GLORY.


Also, it is the mid-January and it's like spring outside. What up, central WA?

annundriel: ([mm] !!!!)
Southland! Tonight!


I don't know how this happened, I really don't, but I'm about as excited for it as I am for Supernatural returning on Thursday. Maybe a little more at the moment.

Gasp! Shock!

Blasphemy, I know.
annundriel: ([spn] I Have the Power)
It's probably wrong to feel gleeful when the other PE teacher tells you the kids will probably run the next day. But, oh, it's nice being on the other side of the equation for a change! Also, some of those kids...Grr. ::shakes fist::

You know you're in trouble when the other teacher tells you, "Fifth period you've got about, oh, five of the worst human beings on the planet."

It wasn't that they're disruptive or disrespectful, they've simply turned Doing Nothing into an art form.

Was Health today, but will be PE the rest of the week as there WERE NO LESSON PLANS. I was supposed to call the teacher, but she never got back to me.

I did get a good start on my port article. Yea, multitasking! I still have the fire district meeting to go to tonight.

Oh, that reminds me of something that annoys me work-wise. Especially in regards to subbing at the school. )

So I am mostly using this mood (originally "mischievous") because it is seriously one of my favorite Castiel moments/looks in SPN. I NEED AN ICON.

But now I'm going to go find a heater and/or blanket and curl up with Guards! Guards! until I have to leave again.
annundriel: ([spn] Let Me Show You Life)
This started as "I'm bored, what shall I do?? E-mail [ profile] sdrohc_ratiug Dean/Cas-related silliness!" And then she said, "Dooo it," when I thought about posting. So. Posting.

There are 11 .gifs behind the cut. Beware loading.

I did not make these .gifs, they have come to me through the glory of the internet. But I now present to you...

annundriel: ([spn] Curiouser & Curiouser)
I'm having one of those days where I just want to surround myself with comfortable things and things that make me happy.

So I'm indulging myself with Dean and Castiel.

I've been re-watching bits of season one lately and thinking about the amazing luck SPN had when they cast Misha Collins. Before I'd seen any of the show, I'd read his first line several places. "I'm the one who gripped you tight and raised you from perdition."

Reading that? And not knowing the character? It's got the potential for massive fail. How do you make something like that sound...not ridiculous? I am convinced no one but Misha could make that line work because, omg, does it ever on the show itself. Now I read it/hear it and instead of thinking, "Who says stuff like that?" I become a quivering mass of flaily fangirl.

Besides which: best, most badass introduction/entrance of a character ever y/y? Seriously. He's got two of my favorite entrances on TV.

Also! Whenever I write a Dean line and go, "Ugh, that's pretty dirty. Even for Dean," I think about the deleted stuff from that scene and go, "Okay, maybe not too dirty for Dean."

CASTIEL: Finding a human vessel durable enough to contain's not easy.
DEAN: I have that same problem with women.


OH LOOK. A CONVENIENTLY VESSELED ANGEL! ::smushes them together::

Um. Anyway. I almost couldn't believe he said it. Almost. Oh, Dean.

Also, this deleted scene from "Heaven and Hell." I just love how...subtly pleased/amused Castiel looks over telling Uriel to keep his hands off Ruby.

I have no really appropriate end for this post, except that the hiatus is surprisingly not torture. I think it's because a) I have lots of fic I want to write about them that works well with not worrying about new canon information and b) I am afraid the whole season is going to end in an epically bad way and if I can put that off, I'm good. I have no basis for this fear other than it's SPN and, well, look at the subject matter. But it's still there.

This is why there are no ornaments on our tree this year.

Just got back from the annual Christmas cantata. It was good. First time I've been to a church-related activity since going to mass last Christmas Eve (lapsed Catholic is lapsed).

Made weird by the fact that now whenever I hear "angels" I think of, well, Castiel and Uriel and Zachariah. Which does not quite go hand-in-hand with the white-robbed rejoicing, y'know? And inevitably Dean/Castiel. Which made it a whole lot more amusing but also a lot more sacrilegious.

It was hard not to grin or giggle. Though it did get me thinking about how different things might have been in the SPN 'verse for those angels back in the day.

I probably need an intervention.

annundriel: ([spn] Illuminated)
Tonight on the CW they replayed "Free to Be You and Me." Much as I love the episode - and, oh, I do, I really do - I also have some issues with it. But that's one of the things fic is for, right? To work through those. Which I have already done.

But the episode is now on my mind and so, a post. I'm mostly just thinking out-loud under the cut. It'll probably be a jumble and lead nowhere.

Spoilers for the episode, obviously. )

Anyway. I've got fic to work on. Two things that I was supposed to be working on until Busted hi-jacked my brain. And, um, now I may also be working on a sequel/follow-up to Busted. Apparently when I say, "Take a break from NC-17," my brain goes, "NO DIRTY FIC, WRITE THE DIRTY FIC." ::shrug::

Unrelated, [ profile] sdrohc_ratiug did some of her massage therapist magic on me today and OH MY GOD. I...don't even...She only worked on me a short time and it was impromptu, but my back feels so much better. I think I'd forgotten what it was like not to be in constant pain in certain places. I am now considering doing the massage thing regularly again.

Dahlia, hun, you are awesome. In general, not just or the massage. ♥
annundriel: ([bbt] Stuck in the Middle with You)
I was checking the summary of tonight's Big Bang Theory earlier this morning.

After being humiliated on the radio, Sheldon vows to destroy Kripke...

Despite the first part, my first thought was, "Oh, so Sheldon's mad about Supernatural, too?"

From a couple weeks ago, Sheldon teaches Leonard about football. I love why he knows football in the first place. Partially because I called it. Mostly I love Raj's observation about commercials near the beginning.

"I'm just saying, maybe if you people cut back on the beer you could get out of the bathroom and satisfy your women without pharmaceutical help."

Also, Wil Wheaton!

I love this show, I do.
annundriel: ([spn] Winchesters)
Spoilers for season five so far )

City council and port articles today. I am a writing machine!
