It’s been a while since we met at the crossroads, friend.

Let's make a deal.
Let’s make a deal.

So, the mid-season finale. Yeah. Kevin Tran. Yeesh. And SAM?? Poor moose. Poor MOOSE!! Honestly, though, I feel for Dean, whom, it seems, will never catch a break. His lies have set in motion a fearful end to season 9, including the death of the Collectress’ new crush, Kevin Freaking Solo. Supernatural returns from Hellatus January 14, 2014, and I don’t have much to add to the spoiler list as of now. Looking back at previous spoilers we’ve talked about this season, I was excited to see some of them come to fruition last night. Metatron is still a douche, and he did indeed meet up with Sam/Zeke/Gadreel in a dark alley, amongst other places. The problem still remains, what the hell are we supposed to do during the Hellatus?? For one, I suggest you visit Twitter and Orlando Jones‘ tweets for the past couple of episodes. Apparently, the man is a Destiel shipper who watches SPN each week and finally decided to get in on the action with the fans on Twitter. Between Orlando, Jared, Osric and Stephen Amell from Arrow, the celeb tweeting during “Holy Terror” S09xE09 felt like an epic snark battle of wits.

The fans loved it.

Episode 09×05 AKA the Episode When Dean Barked at a Mailman

Synopsis

This episode saw the return of the classic SPN “Monster of the Week” formula. The Winchesters were back on the case, armed with fake badges and that same snarky sense of humor. “Dog Dean Afternoon” lights up on a taxidermist working late into the night, his faithful canine companion at his side. In walks a Cowboy Joe (played by Steve Valentine, aka Nigel from “Crossing Jordan”), who is more than a little bit snakey (snakes, why’d it have to be snakes?) as he flicks a forked tongue and constricts the taxidermist to death.

Sounds like a case for the Winchesters, right?

Well, Sam seems to think so. Dean, on the other hand, is a little reluctant to let his brother out of the bunker, which brings us to another moment of we-know-everything-Sam-doesn’t-know. Dean knows that Sam is still healing; Sam thinks everything is hunky-dory. Their conversation went a little something like this:

Sam: Well, gosh golly gee whiz, this looks like a case!

Dean: I think maybe we should lay low…

Sam: Case!

Dean: But…

Sam: CASE. 

The Winchesters in the Impala. Just as it should be.

Episode 09×03 AKA the Episode Where Cas Loses “It”

We all knew this episode was coming, and I think most of us half-anticipated/half-dreaded it. But, in case you’ve been living under a rock, here’s the biggest spoiler in last night’s episode: Cas is no longer a virgin. Yup, he finally gave it up (no, not to Dean. Settle down, Destiel shippers) and he is beginning to realize what being a human is all about.

Dean’s Best One-Liner

Dean had a lot of really fun, sarcastic quips, but this was my favorite:

“I read ‘pie.’ The rest is just blah blah blah.”

Synopsis

This episode had a lot of feels in it, so please forgive any ranting, raving, or spontaneous weeping that occurs. 

My OTP
My OTP

Warning: If slash makes you squick, turn away, cuz darling, I love my slash OTP and I will never apologise for it. 

Okay, first let me defend my choice of title. Destiel is the flagship in my armada of ships; a majority of my weekly fanfic recs are devoted to Team Destiel. And if you’ve looked around our blog ever, you’ve probably noticed that 1) we are Supernatural fans and 2) we ship Destiel (we ship it, ship it good). However, I’ve recently decided that I don’t need the writers of the show to make my OTP overtly canon. I mean, I’d like it–lies, I’d squee like a 12 year old–but I don’t need it. I won’t stop watching the show if it doesn’t happen, and if either Cas or Dean get it on with sexy lady, I’m not going to throw my television out the window (well, not the flatscreen anyway). In fact, even if they never share another hug, I will still love Supernatural. 

I can hear all the Destiel shippers gasping in shock. How dare I not ship the shippest of the ships? Don’t I know that Dean and Castiel share a profound bond?

Yes, yes, I do. And I believe these boys to have a bond so profound that it doesn’t need to be canonized to legitimize it. Even if you don’t ship Destiel, Dean and Castiel do have a deep relationship that is more than just a little bit complicated. Let’s consider what we know about the hunter and angel’s relationship, those things we know to be true because they are in the canon.

I am admittedly not much of a cosplayer. This is not because I don’t LURV cosplay, but I don’t really look like the girls in the movies, I don’t have a lot of frivolous spending money to just go costuming, and I am a bit of a perfectionist. That’s why, when I decided to work on a femme!Dean Winchester cosplay for the J2 Burbank Convention, I was nervous but kind of excited because Dean is just so simple. Jeans and a t-shirt, a flannel and a shitload of weapons, that’s my boy. Half of that stuff I have in my closet already, but in cosplay, it is the little details that make the outfit authentic. I’ve decided that I will represent Dean’s signature tee and flannel look. Since November in California isn’t terribly cold, I’m not going to worry about the leather jacket, instead, I’m going for the Destiel look, with a special printed “I Wuv Cas” shirt, the epic handprint (drawn on), plus a slew of adorable accessories to compliment an otherwise fairly normal tee shirt, boots and denim ensemble.

I am currently putting together my Supernatural Con outfit and I need your help, Collectors. I’ve decided on a few key items, but after that, I am open to suggestion. The con is at the end of November, I am poor and I don’t want to ignore the fact that I am a voluptuous and feminine woman, so those are my criteria. Here are my ideas.
