Fandom Spotlight Day 16: Supernatural

For the month of April, I’m breaking out of my usual “format” and showcasing one of my favorite fandoms a day, so I will have shiny things to make me smile every day of my birthday month. When I sat down to write the list of my top 30 fandoms, I found the task terribly hard. How do I choose just 30? My apologies to all my beloved fandoms left off the list. I’m using random.org to determine what fandom gets what day.

Supernatural


Favorite Quote: “In between jobs, Sam and Dean would sometimes get a day – sometimes a week, if they were lucky. They’d pass the time lining their pockets. Sam used to insist on honest work, but now he hustles pool, like his brother. They could go anywhere and do anything. They drove a thousand miles for an Ozzy show. Two days for a Jayhawks game. And when it was clear, they’d park her in the middle of nowhere, sit on the hood, and watch the stars… for hours… without saying a word. It never occurred to them that, sure, maybe they never really had a roof and four walls but they were never, in fact, homeless.” ~Chuck’s narration

Favorite Season: Third (but eight is climbing the charts)

Favorite Episodes: Pilot, A Very Supernatural Christmas, Mystery Spot, The French Mistake, Swan Song, Man’s Best Friend With Benefits, Changing Channels, What Is And What Should Never Be, Dark Side of the Moon, The Monster at the End of This Book, In My Time of Dying, Bad Day at Black Rock

How I Got Into It: I read some fanfic. I’m not a horror movie fan, so I wasn’t really interested in the show and not worried about spoilers. I read the fanfic and really liked what I read. So I gave the series a try. And somewhere around disc 2 of the first season I pretty much ended up buying the DVD boxed sets for 1 through 5 right then and there.

Fangirl Intensity (scale of 1 to 10 with 10=full-out obsessed): 19

How I Fangirl: I haven’t done the cons (want to go but just haven’t been able to) and except for actually watching the show when it airs. I seem to have a hard time watching episode by episode and I need to just inhale a season all at once or I’m too on edge. I’ve made lots of crafts. I listen to SPRock. I write so much fanfiction, host memes, and it’s my desktop wallpaper at home and at work right now.

Weirdest Merch I Own: my license plate is based off the impala’s from the early season, except that I had to add another K because the original was taken ;-)

Favorite Fandom Creation: How to Speak Winchester song by Elizabeth Smart and lots of fanfic I can’t mention (it knows I love it)

Why I’m Glad I Fangirl It: All the feels. Seriously. I literally crumpled onto the floor sobbing at the end of season 5. It’s got everything I love: guy bonding, weaknesses, strength, humor, drama, clever plot twists, freakin amazing characterizations, and a world that just keeps getting bigger to play around in. Not to mention an amazing fanbase and writers & actors who get us. I cannot believe I resisted watching for years only to suddenly fall in love so hard, so fast, so completely.
