My Riddler Reverse Bang story has taken a turn by become a proto-series. What is wrong with me?

It's Riddler/Scarecrow slash, and though I don't have a name for the series, the story for the bang is "Fight."

"Fight, Flight, and Fury" is the first series, then there's "Love, Lust, and Lies."

My posting date is August 1st. I will keep you apprised.

I have an idea for a follow-up to my Thor story - this time short and not too serious. One of the things in there is this conversation between Thor and Tony Stark - does it seem right for the characters?

“Man of Iron!”

“Hey, Thor, how’s it going?”

“Well! We were attacked by Hydra in London, and many of their agents have been captured.”

“I heard something about that, but the reports were a little confusing. Something about helpful mutants?”

“It was actually wizardry, but I am not supposed to say so. I was told that your head might explode if you tried to understand it.”

“Magic... Riiight... Okay, leaving that for the moment (goes on to explain the current problem)"

Does this seem plausible for them - especially, Tony Stark dropping the topic so easily?

Part one
The morning is cool enough that Sam throws on a sweatshirt before heading out on his morning run. He’s fine until some asshole, who is vaguely familiar, continues to pass him with the comment of “On your left.” Finally Sam has had enough and speeds up trying to catch him, but all it does is make him winded. He makes his way to a tree, where he collapses. He’s busy trying to catch his breath so he doesn’t notice when said asshole approaches.

“Need a medic?” the voice asks. Sam looks and laughs even though it hurts. Dude is buff. And Sam is no idiot; he knows who this is. He’s seen the press conferences, the battle footage and the paparazzi photos of Captain America visiting Peggy Carter’s grave. He’s gonna play it cool though, figures the guy’s been through enough without another fan fawning over him.

“I need a new set of lungs. Dude, you just ran like, thirteen miles in thirty minutes.”

“Guess I got a late start,” Steve replies with a smirk.

Sam smirks back. Captain America is funny. Who knew? “Really? You should be ashamed of yourself. Should take another lap,” he says, gesturing to the running path. “Did you just take it? I assume you just took it.”

“What unit you in?” Steve has noticed Sam’s shirt.

“58th Pararescue, but now I’m working down at the VA.” He offers his hand and Steve takes it pulling Sam up from the ground.

“Steve Rogers.”

“I kinda put that together Sam Wilson,” he responds. “Must have freaked you out coming home after the whole defrosting thing.”

Steve nods. “Takes some getting used to. Good to meet you, Sam Wilson.”

Sam isn’t willing to let this opportunity go and relates to Steve soldier to soldier. He thinks for a moment that Steve might be flirting and it kind of rocks his world. Then he gets to recommend Marvin Gaye...

A phone call from Sweden this evening. K finally asked F to marry him - down on one knee too, apparently. In a motorway layby, but beside a stunningly beautiful lake.

So, there's a wedding to organise. They are talking about January, which is scarily soon, even though they don't want a really big "do". And I have to get a mother-of-the-bride outfit I won't hate myself in.

Beware, there will probably be a lot of wedding talk over the next few months. Illustrationshapinglight, I may well be picking your brains!

Title: The Price of the Plan
Fandom: Harry Potter
Prompt: Wild Card—Using Fall from Grace
Medium: fic
Wordcount: ~1000
Rating: G
Warnings: Spoilers for the HP books, I suppose…
Summary: For the Illustrationhc_bingo. Severus Snape's return to Lord Voldemort's side, the farce of being loyal, was harder than he thought it would ever be.

Author's Note: Okay, so this hit me in a flash, and I hope everyone enjoys it. Please review!  Texture by yunyunsarang


The Price of the Plan

Severus Snape didn't like bowing. Bowing and scraping… the human race was above these things. But, when he arrived at Lord Voldemort's seat in Malfoy Manor, he bowed deep. The Dark Lord smiled, his lipless mouth spreading just like a snake about to consume a rat.

"Ah, Severus…" his wispy voice carried all over the large dining hall.

Severus didn't question why the long table had been temporarily removed, along with its matching chairs. He didn't question why Voldemort sat at the head of the room, in the largest, most ornate chair he could find. This was the biggest room of the house, its flooring done in marble. Its walls were of the finest oak and expertly carved. Voldemort, now that Snape had killed Albus Dumbledore, was an emperor, presiding over his growing empire.

The Death Eaters that had f...

I've spent the past week as a delegate (unreimbursed) from my local to the 41st International Convention of AFSCME (the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees), of whose Local 91 I am president, and to which Illustrationparkingprincess also belongs. (The only reason I've been able to afford to be here was that Illustrationtrinker has been letting me crash on her couch here in the Chicago area.)

One of the saddest things we have had to do at International this year was to pass a resolution withdrawing all support from the United Negro College Fund, and urging all affiliates and allies to do the same. Tragically, the UNCF has in the past year sold itself out to the Koch Brothers, agreeing to push their lying agenda in return for a grant said to exceed 30 pieces of silver ($25 million). Their president even spoke at a Koch-funded "summit" where that scumbag Charles Murray of BELL CURVE notoriety was being honored.

Bleh. It is miserably hot right now. I'm avoiding the worst of it by being up late at night and sleeping through the middle of the day, but it is still not a fun experience. I'm whipping through a lot of clothes because of sweat even though I'm not really doing anything. I can't be on one electronic device for too long because it will heat up with prolonged use, so I'm switching between my DS, my PS3, my laptop and my kindle/books from the library. Basically, I am being as much of a layabout as possible. I do try to clean a little here and there, but I will fully admit that it's not much.

I am having a fun time going through these games and books though. I've actually been able to finish some games I've had for years, or at least get a good chunk of the game started/continued. And some of the books I'm reading (pulled from the bookcase of 'to-read') will be donated somewhere once they've been entered in my LibraryThing. I've decided to pare down my collection, since a recent acquisition of comic books has left things a bit messier in my room than I want to be comfortable with. (Look. I am aware hoarding is kind of a family trait - and I don't want to end up like some of my relatives, so I'm taking steps to avoid it. Do I really need all these books that I don't read? No. So all of those dime paperbacks are getting chucked out the door once they've been read and catalogued.)

I've also been sorting through some of my old movies and dvds - and getting rid of a bunch of duplicates. I don't need the VHS and the DVD and the Blu-ray. Actually watching them is a little harder (I am so terrible at watching things alone - I can sense embarrassment from a mile a way and I will pause the movie to do something else and then never finish without really pushing myself) but I've slowly been working through them too. Actually, it's been a lot easier to watch old anime than it is to watch live action. I finally got around to watching all of the Lupin III series, as ...

So I'm working on the antepenultimate chapter of Where the Heart Is and I just found out that Côte d’Ivoire is in the northern hemisphere.

I went back over the previously posted chapters and I don't think I actually wrote anything incorrect. The 2nd sentence of the fic says "the very notion of a White Christmas seems more than a little alien" but that'd still be true no matter what.

But, still. Obviously with a fic like this one worries about being unintentionally appropriative--or at least more so than the source canon itself commits one to--but it never occurred to me that I might put a country in the wrong frakking hemisphere.

Oh, well. Disaster averted.

In a nutshell, my migraines have me locked in. I've got hemiplegic migraines, which is similar to having a stroke when they happen full on. Mine come and go in various degrees. Some days I'm fine, others I might just have slight pressure or mild pain. On bad days I'll get vertigo (lose my balance), extreme confusion (can't think straight), and dizziness (room spins, or total blackout).

Full on attacks for me mean partial paralysis, inability to talk, and lingering numbness. It takes me upwards of a week to recover from one. Even mild migraines can leave me with extreme fatigue.

Luckily those happen maybe 4 to 6 times a year. The bad ones maybe once a month. The regular pressure, confusion, and pain is almost everyday.

So, needless to say I've not been working regularly. I do chores, and work on writing, as I feel up to it. I'm actually doing better these days. I can deal with every day life just fine for the most part. I just don't make firm plans for anything.

Today is an okay day. Hopefully tomorrow is a good one.

It seems more and more often than more of Harry Potter fandom is starting to disappear, but I think it's the most shocking, and saddening thing to me as both a writer and long time fangirl that archives such as The Hex Files and HP Fandom Archive are the next on the proverbial chopping block if the owner, Sher De Lune does not get any monetary help from us. It goes without saying that both archives have contributed so much to well-being of our fandom, and some of the fandom's oldest and most belovedstories will disappear without a trace without either archive to host it. So I'm proposing both a donation drive and a charity drive for those like me who can't afford to give monetary help, but would love to auction off a fanwork to help the cause.

If you want to donate you can do it here

Or you can offer and bid on a fanwork in the comments below. The minimum bid is $5, and the bidding ends August 1st!

ETA: Because it was pointed out that I didn't make this clear enough, *headdesk*. Anyway, I'm making it a rule that it has to be a brand new fanwork, and after the bidding closes in August, people will have to take a screencap of their receipts (please feel free to black out any incriminating personal information you want) and email them to before they can receive their fanwork.

Yikes.  It's been over a month since I last posted.

Anyway, I'll just pretend that never happened and I'll try to get back on track with posting every day (only because I want to finish that CLAMP 30 Day challenge thing...).

Work is going well.  I've been working on the Pixar parade a whole lot lately, which I don't mind, because the hours are good--not to early and not too late.  The only thing I don't like about working the parade is working in the heat, but parade management always has cold water and Gatorade for the performers and we (the costumers) can drink the water and Gatorade as well.

I've started volunteering at the Natural History Museum in Los Angeles.  I normally wouldn't volunteer so far away but a: Orange County is pretty sparse, when it comes to museums.  Sure, we have Bowers Museum, but whenever I submit a volunteer application to them I never, ever hear back from them.  Also, Bowers is pretty small.  The NHM in LA has three floors, is 100 years old, they have a ton of exhibits, they have a pretty amazing Dino Hall, they're historic, they have behind the scene volunteer opportunities and tons of different departments (like the department of anthropology), and, yeah, I'm kind of considering a career in a museum (like a curator.  Maybe.  Hopefully.  I like being around historic things/places/areas).  So I figured I would volunteer in a museum to see if I like the environment and plus it's something to put on my resume.  But I'm just doing it for the experience.  I know I should list a 'b' reason because I had an 'a' reason but I can't think of anything for a 'b' reason.  Um...maybe b: it's in downtown LA and downtown LA is very historic?  Ooh!  The NHM was featured in the L.A. Noire game :D which I totally want to play again just because.  I like driving in that game.  I can drive on sidewalks.  I can drive in the L.A. river basin in the game.  And a couple Mondays ago when I took the train we were besid...

Well, so much for bring on time. I have spent all my writing time going back and forth between sticking to the outline and letting the words run away with me. The filler scene that I thought I could speed through to get to the meaty stuff has taken on a life of its own. Now I am reworking the outline for the chapter and all the barebone stuff I have for the rest of the story. Arrg. Anyway, I am about half way through the chapter even if I haven't gotten through even a third of the outline I thought I would have by this point. Regardless, I should have something to be proofread in a few days and posted by early next week. We'll see.

Most excellent birthday wishes to the hoopiest frood I know, Illustrationaeron_lanart. She mentioned in a recent post she'd like to see more Dresden/Methos, so I wrote some. Rated 15 to be on the safe side, but as usual I can't write sex for toffee so no actual sex occurs during the fic.

Happy Birthday Al xxxx

Nothing you recognise is mine.


I have to admit, I could get used to this. Lying on my bed, utterly debauched, and the man who just blew me six ways from Sunday was downstairs fixing me cinnamon toast. I'm not exactly a novice in the bedroom, but Methos knows things I couldn't even dream of. I guess when you're the only person on the planet older than Ancient Mai, you're sure to have picked up a few tricks along the way.

"Harry," Bob said as he appeared suddenly.

I grabbed the covers frantically to cover my modesty.

"Bob!" I ground out.

"Honestly, Harry, it's not like you have anything I haven't seen before," he said, the corner of his mouth quirked into one of his infuriatingly smug half smiles.

"I thought we had pretty firmly established boundaries set in place for when I have visitors, Bob."

"Since said guest is currently in the kitchen, I had wrongly presumed it would be safe to come and speak to you," he replied.

"Are my ears burning?" Methos said as he climbed the last few steps. He was carrying a tray with tea and toast and wearing only an apron and a smile.

"Hardly. I simply wanted to tell Harry that I finished my calculations," Bob replied. I sat up, suddenly interested.

"The alignment? You know when it is?"

"Tonight," he replied.

I grabbed my jeans from the floor and began to put them on.

Supernatural 9x23 Do You Believe in Miracles
(I'm calling this take one, because when/if I watch again I might have a "better" review - then again I may not.)

Okay, so I had the extremely early shift on Tuesday, which generally means I wouldn't have been up late enough to watch Supernatural on the proper night, but since it was finale I made myself manage (and the review didn't go up this afternoon because I worked the late shift tonight just for the record), which was probably a mistake on my part. Don't get me wrong, I think I liked the episode and all that, but I didn't retain much from watching it either. So that means I wanna try and watch it again maybe in the near future.

Though I do remember thinking that perhaps that "unfair" commentary toward Metabore from another angel in a previous episode was correct - Metabore didn't want to wipe out humanity or anything like that he just wanted to be loved.

And I do remember thinking at the very end of the episode that I had totally called that - you know what I'm talking about. And this time, while I do loath stupid boys, I can actually forgive them for not seeing this coming, because Dean was obviously distracted by demonic feelings, and Sam was too wrapped up in Dean worry to think about long-term problems. However, I am very curious why Cass didn't say anything - I mean surely if Crowley suspected the outcome so would (and should) have Cass. Of course, I guess we are supposed to forgive that because Cass also had other things on his mind, but really ain't Dean supposed to be like his BFF.

I also remember thinking that at times I do feel like I misjudge Carver - more and more I do think the story he's trying to tell ultimately might not be so bad and perhaps if it didn't have to go through the process of going from his head to writers that don't seem to communicate well with each other and then moving through even...

Yesterday I saw The Winter Soldier with Illustrationcyprinella! It was fun. Cap is not really my favorite Avenger (&THOR;) but I got nothing against him, and enjoyed the first one well enough. I liked this one much more, though. Afterwards, C. and I spent a fair bit of time griping about how SHIELD's HQ placement would totally screw up our commutes. It appears to be on an island just off Rosslyn, which will probably put that big underwater helicarrier port in the path of the Orange Line, which means I am screwed all around. Then she tweeted about a post-movie fic that described the river as salty. DEAR FIC WRITERS: NO.

I also couldn't tell whether SHIELD's private bridge was a new one placed right next to Memorial Bridge, or whether they just replaced Memorial Bridge with it. I think the latter. If so, fic writers, that means that it's a very short walk from HQ to Arlington National Cemetary, if you need Steve going there and having FEELINGS during his lunch break.

We also had fun picking out the times when it would switch to Cleveland. (I believe there were a couple of shots of the city that included buildings much taller than any permitted in DC thanks to the absurd height limits in the city.) It was still vastly better, though, than the time X-Files portrayed "Occoquan" as a busy mid-sized city (LOL) and the time Hannibal had a beach in West Virginia. (IT IS A LAND-LOCKED STATE. IT IS A LAND-LOCKED STATE THAT IS FILLED WITH MOUNTAINS. Also, Wolf Trap hasn't really been that rural idyll for twenty years or so, but that's slightly easier to handwave than A BEACH IN A LAND-LOCKED STATE FILLED WITH MOUNTAINS.)

Also: the use of Marvin Gaye in a movie set primarily in DC was such a lovely touch. Well done, m...

200-bloody-6. This journal was created when I was 20 years old. And I last posted here when I was 23. Now I'm 28.

That feels a little weird.

I remember owning a blog from sometime in 2002/2003, which made me about 16/17. Which means I've been 'blogging' on and off for approximately 11/12 years. That's - impressive. Well no. Not if you consider the amount of 'celebrity' or paid bloggers who suddenly sprouted in Indo, and earned a truckload of easy money. But yeah. I'm old-ish! And I've been around. And I find that hilarious.

Re-reading this journal has made me realize how much I've calmed down the past few years, which isn't saying much really as I'm still the most excitable person in my group of friends. It just means way back when, I was batshit insane. Also - I am frankly appalled at some of my past posts, which I've managed not to just purge because Goddess above I was (and I reiterate) batshit insane.

These days I mostly post over at Wordpress, but this place makes me nostalgic. And I'm pretty happy with the level of anonymity I have here :) Maybe I'l come back. Not always, but sometimes.

Because fuck you Livejournal you terrible piece of shit, I still quite adore you.

Title: I never wanted to be a housewife"
Author: Lil Jei
Fandom: Justified
Pairing: Raylan Givens/Boyd Crowder
Rating: PG 13
Wd Ct: 500
Disclaimer: The world of "Justified" and the characters are not mine and I make no $ off them.
Authors Note: This is the world of "Justified" but totally AU and involved in the alpha/omega world. Imagine a world that views men that can bear children as another subset of female biology. And then throw in some good old fashioned southern prejudice in regards to women’s rights especially in the Kentucky world of "Justified." This story came about in my need to write believable mpreg based off evolution etc. As well as my muse that is Raylan Givens. I always love as an author to write AU'S but I enjoy reading them as a reader as well and I wanted to share with you my take on the A/B/O world as well as mpreg. This is a what if story and I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I loved writing it. BTW in my typical fashion it is un-beta'd.
Summary: Raylan and Boyd had a one night stand based off their mutual love and relief to be alive, now they face the consequences.

Chapter 1
Raylan had always been a boy or so he thought. Now looking at the test results he feels like a bloody fool. He'd have never known he was one of "them" had he not given into sin. He'd let Boyd have him that night at the coal mine, he had been grateful to be alive. Within the rush of stolen kisses and binge drinking he and Boyd had ended that night in bed together.

Now he regretted it and he regretted living too. His father Arlo was gonna try to kill him after laughing his ass off at him. Trying to stay with it Raylan thinks he knows how it'll go with the Crowder’s too. Despite their reputation as "no good" Raylan knew they were traditional. The wedding isle here he comes.

Raylan was now regretting his choice to be honest. He should have run away. He should have packed a bag and hitched from Harla...

Okay, yeah... I've gotta add my 2 cents to the complaints about this.

I, like so many, have loved this show for 14 years. I Tivo'd every episode as it aired on Showtime and then again as reruns on Bravo and Logo. I bought every season on DVD and every season's soundtrack on CD and iTunes. I felt varying levels of love, lust, pain and hatred toward the characters for 5 years, suffered thru Michael's whining and wondered how the hell long that mid-series pregnancy was going to freaking last! (no real spoilers for the uninitiated!) And I cursed Cowlip for nearly all of Season 5 (and still haven't forgiven them to this very day).

Not for a lack of availability for me, obviously, I wanted to see QAF stream on Netflix like all my fellow fans... mostly because it would bring the show to the attention of a whole new generation of viewers. And now THIS!!! I'd read the reviews and the many critiques of the music but, out of some sense of morbid curiosity, I turned on the TV tonight and hit play. There are 2 scenes in Season 1 in which the music really made me feel what I was seeing... Brian and Justin's first kiss and their dance to "Save the Last Dance" in the season finale (again, trying not to spoil). I'll admit that after the kiss I stopped Episode 1x01, skipped to Episode 1x22 and hit fast forward to confirm what I already knew. That pivotal scene had been utterly ruined.

A lot of reviewers are condemning Netflix for the music in the streaming version but I'm pretty sure they're not at fault. I'm fairly certain that it's the production company that has to pay the royalties for the music (Quantum Leap had the same problem for years because of the first 2 episodes). And, let's face it, Cowlip stopped caring about the fans during Season 4 when it was decided that they'd only get 1 more season. Fans have complained since the Series Finale in 2005 that their goal was to push the politics more than to entertain their loyal followers. Of course the po...

IllustrationOk, so last year hardly anyone posted me back about Christmas cards, which i admit was a little depressing, but this year i have one or two addresses and was wondering if anyone would like a pretty card for their mantle?

If you send me a PM with your addresses then i will gladly reply with mine and get a card sent out ASAP, as im trying to avoid the December post madness that tends to happen over here in the UK.

Either way, i want to say a Merry Christmas to everyone on LJ and all my other little online buddies who stalk my LJ. .*COUGH* Carrie-Ann *COUGH*

All cards have been posted! Hope you like em'!

Previous It was 20 minutes later when Rachel found herself in the rather spacious living room of the Halliwell Manor. She sat there, still shaken from the emotions that were triggered within her following the vision. She sat between her father and mother, who had a comforting arm around her. A few moments later a… Continue reading →

“How do you know Jake?”

Andy frowned and shrugged his shoulders. “I didn’t until about two hours ago. I met him at the gas station, and he said I could park my van here for a couple of days.”

“Andy is on a road trip.” Delia supplied, taking a sip out of her bright red cup filled with Southern Comfort.

A road trip? The kid looked like he was all of fourteen. “Uh, no offense, but shouldn’t you be in school?” Boaz asked, and thanked Delia as she handed him a drink. He sniffed it, Johnny Walker.

“Probably,” Andy said and took a swig of his own beverage, a can of Budweiser. “Hey, are you the Lit major?”

Boaz was pretty sure he misheard Andy just then, and while he was trying to figure out what the kid actually said Delia answered,

“No, that’s Tom. He’s over there.” And then she proceeded to point him out.

“Cool,” Andy said, and then slapped Boaz on the shoulder. “It was nice to meet you, but if you’ll excuse me, I have a philosop...

~Still no word on the referral, lame.

~Still no prospects on the job front.

~Car being fixed will cost $2k. It died on the way to the mechanics (after I got my grandpa's truck to borrow again) and we had to have it towed. But he's rebuilding an engine for us so it'll be all happy soon. An awesome friend of mine is lending us the money since the family that could help, won't, and the family that would help, can't. Lame. Everything is lame! But it'll be fixed by the end of next week and I'll have my car back and I miss it.

~Instead of working on my new computer, Michael got me a new hard drive for my laptop since it was so cheap for 1tb. So now I have a case for my old hard drive and Sunday will Time Machine it up with the new one. I'm going from 320gb to 1tb and I'm very excited. Windows-only MMO time! Damn you, not-Mac games! My Mac is awesome and wants to play. Okay, I just want more games than just WoW. Not that I find time for anything but you know, I want the options.

~Shipped books to Amazon to sell, yay, and got a giant box to donate (yes, all books). Less stuff is my motto right now and I need to do better at that. Spring cleaning, good for if/when I finally get to move out. Especially if our current prospective situation doesn't get switched to the bigger room, we may have to get a storage unit for extra stuff. Clean clean clean!

So, finally got around to watching season 1 of Heroes on Blu ray. I am through the fifth episode. I can see why everyone was so jazzed on the show when it first came out. It's very impressive.

Illustrationfish_echo  is, that's who. 

Back in Halloween she dressed up as Delirium-Who-Was-Once-Delight, in particular, the design from my icon. 

I just got a package from her.  It contained

One (1) card in an enveloped marked "To: [Morag] Happy Birthday and Merry Christmas (much belatedly) P.S. open presents before the card (card contains spoilers)" with many stars on


One (1) boomerang from Australia (I'm hoping she wasn't intending this as a death threat ala Scandal in Belgravia, but then I remembered I can't even make a yo-yo work, there's no way I'll actually get a boomerang to come back


Twelve (12) crocheted and knitted fish of many varieties.

So, if I find a cheap old black leather jacket, here in meatspace, I can actually look like I do on the internets.

As I said, who is made of awesome-sauce?  fish_echo is, that's who.  Thank you, sweetie, I love the presents and you too.

There are two things I’ve been wanting to do lately. to do. Get back into writing fic, and write a Sims story. Well, thanks to some comments made on a message board I frequent (this one right here) the two ideas sort of merged in my brain. I thought, “Hey, I could write a Sims story using, say, Chloe and Lex. That could be fun!”

In a Sims Story is, you basically create some Sims, follow them through their life, and write about what they do and what happens to them. Usually with pictures. And you try to do it in a way that tells an interesting story.

I’ve never done a Sims Story before, but I think it will be fun. Let’s see, shall we?

I'm using the Sims 3, by the way. I'm not playing with any extensions because they slow down my game. But I might up and install one while playing.  

Now on to the story.

Chapter 1: Moving On Down...for a While

Our story begins some time in season 4, and things are pretty normal for good old Smallville. Lionel has wheedled his way out of prison. Lex thinks he and Clark might possibly maybe be friends again…but he’s not sure. And Chloe is bending over backwards for her friends, who don’t really seem to appreciate it. You know, the usual.

One day, Lex is working in his study (mostly trying to think of ways not to have to deal with his father) when the door bursts open.

In marches Chloe, looking as intense and determined as he’s ever seen her. Which is saying something.

“You know what?” she began without preamble. “If we don’t get out of here, this town is going to drive the both of us nuts. That or kill us!”

A thoughtful frown puckering his brow, Lex idly rubbed his chin. She did have a point. Despite its quaint and peaceful small town image, Smallville didn’t seem very healthy for anyone. Especially the...

First off I know this is old news but I'm going to talk about mildly spoilery stuff. (See I still have manners)

I realized something about Supernatural. To me, what made it good were the supporting characters. Bobby, Jo, Ellen...even some of the demons. When the show did the whole Heaven/Hell/Heaven civil war/war I couldn't figure out why I wasn't digging it. Part of it was that I felt the Winchesters were just too outgunned but I think it was mainly because the angels were so boring and serious.

And let me just gush about the most awesome new characters from the seasons I just watched.
-Hunter Garth - He's just so ridiculous but he just fits. :) I mean who doesn't love a guy that rolls around blastin Poison from Bell Biv Devoe.
-Drunk Castiel - Go home Castiel, you're drunk!
-And best of all...Lucifer in Sam's head. I just love how he alternated between fake torture and then singing random songs in his head. The random comments that Lucifer made were just great.

I might see if I can find some highlight clips to post. There were some nice story moments too although there were some characters that died I wasn't too happy about.
