Welcome + Fic and Time-line

Hello!
Things of mine you might want to check out:

Hells Half Acre's Supernatural Time-Line: Preseries, S1-S5, S6-S7 - The only accurate Supernatural Time-Line on the Internet....in my opinion.

Master List of my Fanfic

Quick Reaction: 14x19 Jack in the Box

Hello!!

Do I have a preamble tonight? I don't think so... I hope you have all had a good week! Next week it the finale - amazing! And then I'll get the timeline uploaded, and then MAYBE I'll finally get S13's clothes done.

No drinking tonight, because I had to drive. Hopefully you all forgive me. :)

Let's get into it....

Rewatch S13: Exodus (13x22)

Hello! I had a busy weekend with my sister visiting, so didn't get to do one of these - so, welcome to Monday! And then I'll try to finish this all up on Easter weekend. :)

So, episode...

Exodus

Dude, it's me. I've known you since the stars were made. )



Let me know you're own thoughts!

Quick Reaction: 14x18 Absence

 Hello!!!!!

So, I drank 2 large glasses of wine and a half-shot of some 19% dessert wine on an empty stomach. I was going to make dinner and absorb some of that before I wrote up the episode, but now I'm thinking it'll be more fun this way...

Standard reminder: Have drunk a bunch, watched episode once (while drinking), taken bad notes, am tipsy - quotes are therefore paraphrased and I am ridiculous.

I seriously thought this episode would piss me off, but it ended up being QUITE GOOD! Let's discuss!!!

Episode!!! )



Let me know you're own thoughts! I got thoroughly distracted while writing this up, so I'm now sober and this probably wasn't as entertaining as I hoped. That's what drinking gets you, kids...

Rewatch S13: Beat the Devil (13x21)

Totally forgot to do one of these yesterday, not that I had time. So, probably just one this weekend - but I may try to do another on Tuesday. I really want to be done with rewatches before S14 ends

Beat the Devil


He's gone. Dean, we don't have time. Dean, we can't save him. )


As usual, let me know if you have any thoughts, or want to go on in my depth about how wonderful a job Jared and Jensen do with facial expressions which is something that's very hard for me to capture in writing, but is nonetheless true.

Quick Reaction: 14x17 Game Night

Okay folks, get ready to strap into this rollercoaster...

Listen, before I even do the cut, I'm going to be honest - by about twenty minutes into this episode, I was so pissed off that if I hadn't had this tradition of writing it up after and talking with you all about it, I probably would have bailed. I'm glad I stuck through, because the show (almost) turned it around for me in the last five minutes. BUT BUT... at about twenty minutes in, I chugged a glass of wine, because it was my only recourse - and in preparation for writing it up, I have made myself a tall vodka-ginger and sipped HEAVILY...

BUT there are rules, and I'm going to go over them now, for my own benefit - no matter how annoyed I get, I like liking things - so I'm still going to talk about all the stuff I did like - and I except you to do the same, got it? Now, I'm not expecting other people to have actually had the same reaction I did, because it's not like this episode was written badly, it just wasn't written to my specific tastes, and there's nothing wrong with that - I am not the only SPN fan (shock, I know.)

Okay, now that I'm reminded of the rules - let's get into it....

My drunken rambles under here... )

So, hopefully we all survived that write-up and I was able to keep most of my usual tone! 

Let me know you're own thoughts in comments!

Rewatch S13: Unfinished Business (13x20)

Time for rewatch weekend part the second! I may try to do another two next weekend too or even try to finish up the season completely - my sister is visiting the weekend after that, so I won't have time.

Unfinished Business

I thought this story had pornstars. )

Let me know you're own thoughts and theories, if you have any!

Rewatch S13: Funeralia (13x19)

Finally! Let's see if I like this episode as much as I remember liking this episode!

Funeralia

You know, she's right. You never go to parties. )


Let me know if you there's anything you want to discuss that I missed!

Time gets away from me...

I know I said I'd have the rewatch of Funeralia up yesterday - but my days this week have been a little busy, and as a result when I get to the evening I'm exhausted. I really like Funeralia (or at least, remember liking it) so I want to make sure I have a good chunk of "awake" time for it. 

But, I also want to try to get a little bit ahead in rewatches, so that I can finish rewatches before S14 ends. 

So, I'm going to try to do 2 rewatches this weekend, because currently I don't have other plans, and I intend to keep it that way!

Rewatch S13: Bring 'Em Back Alive (13x18)

Fun fact about taking 2 weeks off rewatches - I forget that they're a thing that I do!

So, now, coming at you on a Monday rather than the weekend...

(ETA: Just a warning, I did not have very much to say about this episode - this is a short one, folks!)

Bring 'Em Back Alive

Look, I know you think it's safer inside - no more torture, no more pain, no more expectations. I've been there. )

If you want to talk about aspects of this episode that I've blatantly ignored, please bring them up in comments! Just because I don't mention something, doesn't mean I don't have thoughts on it.

The 15th and Final Season

I don't know how to embed media on here - but I just happened to check twitter right as Jared posted the video announcement....

The 15th Season is going to be the Finale Season of Supernatural! 

Amazing.

I had given up predicting when they were going to end the show. I knew there was a good chance they'd stop after 300, because Jensen had gotten into trouble before for talking about it like it would be the last goal they reached. But, I also thought that they were going to stop after S10, and then after S13, because Jared had talked about stopping when Thomas was old enough for kindergarten.

15 is a good number.

I'm going to have to adjust some life routines! There is going to be a TRANSITION that's for sure.

The final rewatch will carry me into 2021 - and then I'll be able to wrap up the clothing catalog. Maybe I'll revisit some other fan projects that I put on hold as canon just seemed to get increasingly intimidating.

We'll see!

In the meantime, what a historic day in our little-big fandom family. I'm sure everyone is feeling all of the feelings. I know I am.

Quick Reaction: 14x16 Don't Go in the Woods

Hello!

We're back to our usual schedule, with me drinking and then getting tired - and then writing up the episode based on my poor notes. You don't get random lyrics to lead you into the cut today though, because although I listened to my iPod on the way home, one of the songs reminded me of an ex-lover and I spent the whole walk thinking about that rather than thinking of appropriate lyrics to pair with the episode theme...

Let's talk about the actual episode now!

High Stakes! )

Quick Reaction: 14x15 Peace of Mind

Hello! I managed to get this done before Thursday! Yay! 

I had a really great week visiting my sister, and a really fun weekend at Emerald City Comic-Con. I didn't do anything SPN related there... mostly bought art that I don't have room to hang, and more comics to add to my 9" high stack of unread comics... but in so doing I became a patron of the arts in just a small capacity.

Then, yesterday, when I got back home, I binged Queer Eye, because that had been released while I was away and I always have to devour that show in as close to one go as I can. :P

So, FINALLY, I was able to test out a friends VPN (it worked!) and watch SPN on the CW site, like the sneaky Canadian that I am.

Let's get into it...

The cows dragged me home... )

Let me know, belatedly as it is, what you thought! I'll see you on Thursday for the new ep!

Quick Reaction: 14x14 Ouroboros

Hello fine people!

Do I have a preamble? I think everyone knows the drill by now.

Oh, I guess I have a warning for next week: I'm probably not going to watch the episode until Monday the 18th at the earliest - and quite possibly not actually until Tuesday the 19th. Why? Because I'll be traveling, and I'm just not sure that I'm going to be able to find the time to watch.

Now, let's get into the episode...

Click here for ramblely write-up! )


Let me know what you thought in comments!

Once again, I'm going to be traveling for 10 days starting tomorrow evening, so rewatches and my quick reaction for next week's episode may not appear until I'm back.

Rewatch S13: The Thing (13x17)

Hello again! Let's just dive right in...

The Thing

Oh my god, that's tragic - it's like a hallmark movie - but with tentacles. )


This might be my last rewatch for a couple of weeks! The show is back on Thursday and I'm away the next two weeks visiting family and going to Emerald City comic-con. (I'll probably also miss SPN on the 14th, just an early FYI).

As usual, let me know your own thoughts in comments!

Rewatch S13: ScoobyNatural (13x16)

I was getting really tired and thought I might put this off today, but I was like.."ugh, let's just look up what episode it is, and then we'll decide if we feel like it..."

And wouldn't you know! Suddenly felt like it:

ScoobyNatural

Look, Sam, the simple fact is, monsters are nothing but crooks in masks - usually unscrupulous real-estate developers. )
I'll be back on the weekend with another! And then it'll be two weeks off while I travel.

Rewatch S13: A Most Holy Man (13x15)

Efficiency! Second rewatch in a week! I will get ahead, just to fall behind when I go away in March for two weekends. :P Oh me - remember when I used to burn through a rewatch in a month or two and have the clothes posted by Christmas? It seems ridiculously impossible now.

Anyway, episode!

A Most Holy Man

Guys, the world will never be perfect - if good men do good things, it can be better - every day could be better... )

Leave a comment if you so desire! I'll see you again on Thursday, provided that I don't forget again!

Oscars

Hey, I'm going to try to do a rewatch before the Oscars start this evening - and I was thinking maybe I'd watch the oscars (also have to go grocery shopping, so I'll have to fit that in somewhere.) But, my question is....

Does anyone know of any free online streams for the oscars? Like, obviously the official ones are a no-go, because you either have to pay or be american... but does anyone know of a fairly reliable sketchy stream?

If you could either comment or PM me, I'd appreciate it. Otherwise, no worries. Just thought I'd ask.

Rewatch S13: Good Intentions (13x14)

Okay! Actually remembering to do this tonight, rather than just messing around all evening and then being like "damn it!"

I gotta admit, part of the problem is coming off or going into a BuckLeming episode, it always really kills my desire to rewatch... but this one turned out to be relatively short to do, and not bad to watch! So, hopefully I'll get another one of these out to you on the weekend, and we'll be back on track.

Good Intentions

Dude, if bacon's what kills me, then I win )


Anyway, comment away, if you have comments to give! I'll see you Thursday for another rewatch. :)

Book Rec: We Are the Catalyst by Tash McAdam

 I mentioned it yesterday - but just to restate: My friend's next book is really good!!

We are the Catalyst (The Psionics Book 2) by [McAdam, Tash]
Amazon.ca link:
We are the Catalyst by Tash McAdam
(The Psionics Book Two)
Amazon.com link (to paperback):
We are the Catalyst by Tash McAdam 

You don't have to read the first on in the series to enjoy this one, as it picks up with new characters (though if you DID read the first one, you'll see some familiar faces as the story progresses). 

If you get the digital copy, you get it a couple days early, I believe. It comes out in other formats on February 25th, if you want a book to hold in your hands.

In my humble opinion, We are the Catalyst is even better than the first book - it starts with a very personal act of resistance, and then just snowballs out from there. Tash also writes in a really action-oriented and suspenseful style that makes the book hard to put down.

Anyway, please give it a read if you're so inclined!
