I made this my own little Supernatural celebration day. I watched a few episodes, dusted off some WIPs, and just have been enjoying the universe in general today. It's been great. Good to know I still love the show like I always have. My love just has matured, much like the characters have ;)
And what better way to celebrate than the day before SPN returns after its mini-hiatus.Five more eps left. Five more eps straight until the end.
No news on renewal yet, but if everything goes well, things are looking good. Of course, you never know with TV.
Dug out the DVDs and did some internet watching with meg_tdj
. We watched the Pilot, Folsom Prison Blues, and One the Head of the Pin. Very random, I know. But I always have a soft spot for pilots of shows I love, and the Supernatural one did it so well. They were so young! And less bulky! And so...not mature LOL.
I picked Folsom Prison Blues as my pick for something out of my fave season, Season 2. I always enjoyed that episode. Henricksen! There were plenty of spectacular eps to chose from in S2, but I wanted a nice stand alone ghost hunt to have fun with. I really loved that whole law enforcement arc. And their lawyer? She was awesome.
Of course, Meg picked the angst fest from her fave season, Season 4. I admit I was not too fond of S4 when it first aired. Not for the writing. The writing and direction was fairly tight in S4, for this kind of show. (I say that because SPN, for as much as I love it, tends to backseat the main story and address it at the beginning, middle, and end of the season. It would be nice if Sam and Dean were more proactive and took action, instead of being reactionary. It messes up with pacing and momentum. I digress.)
Anyway, I'm a fan of Castiel, and it was a great episode for him. In many ways, it was a great episode for all of them, highlighting each of the demons and struggles the characters were facing. Plus the foreshadowing was crazy.
That made me think of the poor WIPs sitting here on my computer. I want to finish them. I really do. I've been having writing issues lately. It's not because I've lost interest or don't want to write anymore. Heck, I am still getting new ideas for stories on a daily basis. The energy and passion is there. I just seem to have this road block of getting it back out there. Maybe I'm afraid it's been so long that the voices will be off? That no one will care? That I'm delusional for still being this excited about the show and fandom activities? I'm not sure. I'd just love to finish them so I can move onto new stories in my series. I don't know what is stopping me so much.
Anyway, I'm not letting it ruin my day. Been having fun. New Supernatural tomorrow night. Don't forget! :)
