Supernatural

tattoo, v. frances
So things have been pretty quiet on the blog because I was taking a break from blog/twitter/writing/internets in general. Not a complete break, but I needed to get out in the world and, you know, live.

While in the process of doing this, I ran across the show Supernatural. Julie had mentioned this show before, specifically because the sisters (Eden and Jordan) in HotD reminded her of Dean and Sam. I was curious, but I didn't want to watch the show at the time because I was rewriting and neck deep in zombie awesomeness. (And yes, Julie, I love you FOREVER AND ALWAYS for recommending this!)

Now, after having watched it, I'm profoundly glad I waited. First, because this show is RULING MY LIFE right now. I've made it through the first two seasons over a period of two weekends and I'm fast jumping on the third (sadly that is where my borrowed seasons run out... but I might just go buy the others immediately upon finishing Season 3).

And, HOLY CRAP, this show is really, truly awesome. The dynamic between Sean and Dean is fantastic and sometimes terribly creepy-weird (because they truly are guy versions of Jordan and Eden and it sort of blows my mind). Dean... Dean .... Lord, but I can't even begin to explain my love for him. I love Sam, too, but Sam's angsty-ness makes me think of Smallville's Clark Kent and that drives me nuts sometime. Stop feeling all whiny about possibly being evil - you're not.

The monsters... sometimes scare the bejeezus out of me. I'll admit to screaming like a little girl through probably half the episodes I watch. They do a really fantastic job of creating suspense without bleeding over into cheesy, leaving the hint of threat instead of bashing the audience over the head with it (although that does occasionally happen). It's just fantastic (although now my mind is conjuring up reasons that my mom's house is haunted and that's ... disconcerting.)

There are a scattering of awesome ladies (Meg, I heart you! And Jo too!) throughout the first two seasons. My only issue with that is that I'd like to see more of them. But Julie has promised me that I will love Ruby, and I believe her!

So, yes, I was an idiot for not watching this show earlier, but I'll admit I like marathoning it.

***

In other news, I've decided to go back through and tear QoS apart. It needs a lot of background information added (surprise, surprise, I know) as well as almost a complete rewrite of the ending.

I've also got an idea for AVENGER OF THE DEAD, the second Eden book, bopping around in my head. I mean, I always knew what the basic plot would be, but now I have this new character clamoring for my attention. She's pretty freaking awesome and she's going to make things... interesting for Eden. I love her already!

I have the first season of Supernatural on DVD. I tried watching episode one, but I got way too scared and turned it off. I know. I'm such a chicken!

I REALLY want to watch it, though, because I've heard it's Awesome. I'm trying to talk my husband into watching it with me, but he's adamantly against it. Probably doesn't want to hear me sighing over Dean and Sam, lol.

Honestly, it scares the crap out of me. Half the time, I have to be doing something while I'm watching the scary parts (like Twitter!) because I can't handle it. And I do go into seizures of fear occasionally...

Yeah, basically I'm a wuss, which sucks because I'm addicted! I just can't watch it after dark (I tried once and it didn't work out well).

OMG, my husband even loves the show. He makes fun of me about it ("What? We're watching your boys again tonight?"), but he likes it almost as much as I do.

Ruby and Bella are both a lot of fun (for different reasons). I REALLY wish they would have done more with Bella's character, but *shrug* not my call.

I totally agree about Dean over Sam (and why). Sam never really does get over his emo-ness, sadly. And as for the evil... well, I'll let you wait that one out :P

BTW, I love you forever too :P

Yeah, my sister is into it now, too. And my little brothers. And most everyone I drag in to hang out with me on the couch when I'm watching. lol

Really, though, I want some more Jo, too. Or just more regular ladies in general! :D

Another convert. Love it! I've been a fan from the beginning and can't help but rave about the show.

It's been a few years since I've seen the first seasons, so none of the girl's names ring a bell, but I agree that you'll like Ruby. I can't remember if she's in Season 3 or 4. Hmmm.

And how can a girl not LOVE Dean? I don't know. I just don't have that gene.

Glad you're enjoying it!

I recently discovered it through the reruns on TV and I'm in love! I need to go out and get the first few seasons so I can marathon it myself. You'll love Ruby, no worries there. ^_^
