This week has been hell.

Supernatural fans suffered through another season finale and, for my first time watching the show on season, I think I’m doing fairly well. I drank only 4 nights this week (every night since Tuesday), I cried only twice, I’ve had one demon!Dean dream and avoided lashing out at my angel and bro about stupid stuff by reading at least 50k words of Destiel fanfic.

And the Hellatus is just getting started.

Ouch.

So, I decided to put together a Hellatus care package for my favorite people, you obsessed fans of Supernatural who, like the Collectress and I, are in agony over the next 144 days of Winchester silence. The season finale wrecked my feels, tore apart my insides, and made me desperate for comfort from something other than a pint of mint chocolate chip Blue Bunny ice cream.

Supernatural Season 10 premieres Tuesday, October 14 at 9pm. Until then, I have a few suggestions on how to survive the 2014 Hellatus into what may be the last season of Supernatural. Ever. And Dean Winchester is a motherflippin’ demon. Just saying!

Breathe.

Good.

Better?

Here are a 5 easy steps to remaining calm and surviving the Hellatus. Good luck! I will see you on Tumblr, scrolling down…scrolling down…reblog…scrolling down…

1) Supernatural Conventions

J2M are on the convention circuit all summer long, ending the year out in SoCal with me at BurCon in November 1014. To get through Tuesdays sans the Winchesters, queue up some of the panel videos posted on YouTube. My favorites are always the J2 Gold session breakfast chats. The boys are adorable, comfortable and laid back, enjoying the fans and having fun with the Supernatural family. If you can get to a Con, go! If not, these fan made panel vids are a great way to get the meta scoop from cast, crew and fans. These cons are so fun. If you love SPN, you will have a helluva time.

In a dystopic world, in which food, shelter and kindness are rarities, our factions are looking for stability. This includes, not only health, safety and companionship but also a sense of home. An environment in which occupants are able to rest and reflect is essential to the mental and physical health of our tribe members. This is why Rick was able to heal his mind after Lori’s death–he had work to keep him busy (Farmer Rick!) and a place to recuperate safely. After the confrontation with the Governor, the destruction of the prison and ultimately, the tribe rupture, factions are not only searching for each other, but meaning and purpose in a very violent and changed world.

S04xE14 “The Grove”

#4 The Wedding of River Song written by Steven Moffat aka the Dark Lord of the Whoniverse
If you were to ask me what my favorite Eleventh Doctor episode is, this just might be it. Honestly, it’s a tie between this and next week’s, but I flip-flop back and forth. If you are a River Song fan (and many Whovians are not), this episode canonizes my OTP and puts to rest the question that has followed River since she rejoined the cast in season 5; Is River the woman who marries the Doctor or murders him? Spoilers: BOTH. I decided to start with this River episode because it is easiest to follow her Impossible Astronaut story line if you start here, at the end of season 6. Yes, I know, wibbley-wobbley, timey-wimey. But River and the Doctor’s stories run in opposite directions, and I find it helps me comprehend her time line if we begin when River marries/kills the Doctor.

I consent and gladly give.
