I am SO LOVING see y'all's posts over on [livejournal.com profile] amilliondays!!!!! It was a rough day, and they did exactly what they're supposed to do: they made me feel better. <3 <3

Here's my post for today, 100 Days of Happiness Day #2:

This guy right here: Gerard Way



I post about him all the time. His existence on this planet makes me happy. Thanks, man, for sharing yourself with the world. It's made my world better.
Dec 17: what is your favorite demon in spn and why ? [livejournal.com profile] emmatheslayer

Meg, hands down, because she was funny and sassy and evil but later on kind of good, and then at one point she was also Sam--how can you resist after that?? I always felt like there was so much potential there for redemption, especially since she'd already come so far. (People mentioned their wish that they'd used her for the trials instead of Crowley, which would have been great.) But Lilith is a close second; I loved the idea of an adorable little girl being the most terrifying demon of all, and that actress did such an awesome job with the part.

Thanks for asking!
Dec 16: Favorite SPN vid (funny or you know... in character) and some totally random vid that makes you smile every time you see it ;) [livejournal.com profile] gorkonelka

Cut for a couple of gifs. )
Dec 15: What's a really unusual/random fear you've had, and what has it taught you? [livejournal.com profile] septembers_coda

As always, with the very interesting questions! I had to put a lot of thought into this one, because although I've had A LOT of fear in my life, there's usually been a good reason for it, but I thought of one: The first time I ever traveled without someone else making all the arrangments, I was PETRIFIED. I just had no idea what to expect--whether you had to make hotel reservations ahead of time or be stuck sleeping on the streets, or if you could find a hotel when you got there (turns out it can be either!), and I mainly had SOO many fears about the rental car. But like I said, I usually had a reason for having fear; I must have sensed something coming, because when we went into the bank for literally four minutes to exchange some money (we were in Canada), when we got back to the car, someone had dented the bumper! I'd already been freakin' melting down, and now my worst fear had been realized. I hadn't been able to enjoy the trip at all, so incredibly anxious about everything, with a horrible headache.

The next half hour or so was a miasma of horror, and then, when I was pushed to the breaking point, I just had to let it all go, everything. If the worst happened, well, so be it. I'd come all this way and spent all this money; the least I could was have some damn fun, so I did. I learned you can't control everything (indeed, in some situations you can't control anything, and travel tends to be like that).

That was the first bud of an adventurous spirit I developed over the course of other travels (during some of which disaster did indeed strike to varying degrees, like the time a semi came inches from flattening us), when I learned to roll with the punches, have a devil-may-care attitude, and enjoy every minute as much as possible ... because it could be your last. ;-)

As it turned out, in my hysteria to be so careful with the rental car, when they gave us the diagram of the car as we picked it up on which we were supposed to mark all the already existing dents and such, I'd drawn a big, thick line RIGHT in that exact spot on the bumper due to a long, thin scratch I'd seen there, so it all worked out perfectly. Serendipity, baby! I learned to trust in that, too.

Good question; thanks for asking!
Behind on the December Meme again, but here goes!

Dec 14: What's a typical day like for you? [livejournal.com profile] alexisjane

Cut for boring. )
"I'd love to know what your ultimate convention line-up would be, from any fandom you've ever loved either still on the air or not. What questions would you like to ask certain guests, what would you have them sign, how would you pose in photo ops? Would you pair up certain guests on panels or have all solo ones? And lastly, you are given three private meet&greets, just you and the guest for an hour. Who do you choose?"

Wow. This is kind of a hard question for me to answer, because while I definitely enjoy imagining that my favorite stars are all I want them to be, after going through the intense disillusionment of really getting to know my favorite musician, I can't help but be pretty cynical about the reality of these things, fearful that even if they seemed perfect at first, they'd wind up disappointing me.

Moreover, some extremely talented actors/writers/directors aren't very interesting in person! So they might not be that fun to see at a con. I SOO loved [livejournal.com profile] milly_gal's answer to this question; I literally could copy and paste everything she said there and it would answer this fairly perfectly, but that's a cop-out, so I'll try to answer myself--just know it'd be better if milly'd written it. ;->

I'd love to see Bendydick Cumabunch and of course my Hiddles in addition to all our SPN boys and girls. Also, DYLAN O'BRIEN. I would ask them questions about their process and how they got SO DAMN GOOD at acting!! And I'd ask them how they handle fame and expectations and what that's like.

I might not have them sign anything (I'm not big on autographs), but I would love to have photo ops--ideally, a J2 sandwich, and a Jared/Misha (Padlins) sandwich, with me as the meat! *drooool*

I'd mostly like to see people solo on panels, but I'd also like to pair up J2, because they riff off each other so well.

As for the meet-and-greets, first, I'd want to meet Misha, because he baffles me. I'd want to ask him about his goals and his dreams, what his secret goal is with all the wackiness he engages in. He's the kind of guy who seems like he has layers and layers of agendas, MOST of them pretty generous and aimed at making the world a better place, but I'd like to hear in his words what that world would look like, what his vision involves.

Second, I'd meet with Yuki Kajiura, a brilliant Japanese musician who scores a lot of animes. I'd love to learn more about her process and inspirations, what makes her tick.

Third, I guess I'd meet with the people primarily involved in creating Revolutionary Girl Utena, because that show blew my mind and continues to awe and bewilder me, and I'd just love to know wtf they were thinking when they came up with all that.

Such a fun questions! Thanks for asking 'em, [livejournal.com profile] vyperdd!
Dec 11: If you could be a character in one Supernatural episode who would it be and what would you change about the episode.

I thought about this a lot, but in the end, it wasn't that hard to decide, after all! I'd want to be the character of Lori in "Hook Man." I loved how she was all damaged and fragile, how she and Sam connected on that level ... and of course then I'd be on the receiving end of that RIDICULOUSLY hot, angsty kiss with Sam.

As for what I'd change ... well, I'd make it less stereotypical horror-movie crap, with the zoom-in to her (kind of cringy) scream at the beginning, and writing in blood on the walls and that stuff. I'd focus more on the emotional connection between her and Sam and how it resonates for him. I feel like there's great potential in that episode for delving WAY deeper into all of that that was cast aside in favor of making sure they hit all the college-girl-in-a-horror-movie tropes.

What a great question, [livejournal.com profile] meus_venator. I invite anyone reading this to answer it, too!
Dec 10: Which episode cemented you as an SPN fangirl?

Oops, I got pretty behind on the December meme ... but at least I'm here! Where is everyone?? My friends page has literally never been this dead.

I remember well which episode it was that cemented me as a fangirl: Faith. Starting from the very beginning with the pilot, a new episode every night or so, I'd been watching along. Some episodes were good, some not so much. In the first couple of episodes, I thought, "I love this story of the brothers; I really wish they'd follow up on that," but I was sure they wouldn't, because I've seen SOOO many shows that introduce a really interesting backstory and dynamic and then completely drop it in favor of stand-alone eps or whatever they think is more popular. I was cautiously impressed that not only did they follow up on it, but it seemed to be the heart of the show.

I quite liked "Skin," and was pretty impressed with a lot of the other episodes ... but then "Faith" came, and I saw what the show could be, the incredible potential of it, and I fell in love, that they went there--and with an episode that most networks would nix, because it wasn't about action action action, and certainly not about sex, but about death, and religion, and right and wrong, grappling with Big Questions fearlessly. Jensen played it so perfectly; that's also when I realized he could do just about anything, which I admire so much. The script was sooo good. It was just all so good. Huzzah for Gamble and Tucker, great writers both! And everyone involved with the making of that episode. It remains one of my all-time favorites.

Thanks for the question, [livejournal.com profile] elwarre!
"Please could you share your favorite to 5 pics/gifs (manips, art, drawings whatever) of Dean and Sam or J2 or you know SPN in general? Why they are so special to you?"

Pics and gifs behind the cut! )
December 5th - do you collect anything? Are you a collector, or do you not understand that whole thing?

Indeed, I don't get it. I'm a pragmatist and never really saw the point. (Plus, I don't like unnecessary crap around my house.) When I was a kid, I was given both coin and stamp collector starter kits, and it was amusing for a brief time, but yeah, unless something has some identifiable function (including art, because art has all KINDS of functions for our minds, hearts, and spirits), I can't get into it.

That said, I can be something of a completist--when it comes to shows and musicians I really dig, I will go to some lengths to own every important release.

Thanks for the question, [livejournal.com profile] toratio! Are you a collector?
"What character in SPN (dead or not recently present) you miss the most? And why is he/she so dear to you?"

Ahh, good question.

I guess I must say Meg. The writers keep saying how happy they were with her final episode/scene, but I felt like she got thoroughly shafted and that there was so much more to be done with the character. Plus, I was such a Megstiel fan, and they only barely touched on that before killing her off.

I loved Meg in all her incarnations, from sooo deliciously evil in S1 to Meg!Sam to the snarky but heroic Meg of latter seasons. Gah, she had so much potential. I'd love to see Meg fic galore, filling in all the gaps that were left with that character.

That was a fun question--thanks for asking!
Ahh ... I can't resist this writing meme. Pick a letter:
