"Your surroundings may change but your essence and your personality pretty much stay the same.” ― Jenna Dewan

A scorpion asks a frog to carry it across a river. The frog hesitates, afraid of being stung, but the scorpion argues that if it did so, they would both drown. Considering this, the frog agrees, but midway across the river the scorpion does indeed sting the frog, dooming them both. When the frog asks the scorpion why, the scorpion replies that it was in its nature to do so.

With that lesson I offer you the word for this article, "essence", and this next video.

Strange how, when you least expect it, a lighthouse will shine in your darkest hour, from a direction least expected.

Unbeknownst to us all until it was too late, we found out that the person who came into my mom`s life after my dad died was the high priest of a satanic cult. What a shock for a 12 year old whose life as she knew it was pulled away from her.

Editor's Note: After reading my account of finding Supernatural in Family Don't End with Blood, Heimatstern submitted her story to The Winchester Family Business. By itself, it's an amazing testament to optimism and generosity of spirit but it is even more powerful in the context of the friendship that has spanned an ocean. Fandoms can save people from many different situations. Coupled with Jared's, Jensen's and Misha's leadership and the Always Keep Fighting initiative, many people are seeing a light in the darkness for the first time in their lives. Part 2 of this story will be from Yolanda, telling her powerful story of Supernatural's inspiration. Please support Heimatstern's and Yolanda's courage and welcome them to the WFB Family!  

 

This is not a sappy, #bondwithyourfamilywhilewatchingSupernaturaltogether, story. My husband is very jealous and my daughter gets upset when I like the same things she likes. So, as always, I did what British blogger Les Floyd summed up so perfectly: I followed my own path and it led to here!

EPISODE EIGHT:

Episode eight is a unique place in the episode line up: over the years it has marked a mini-hiatus and as a result been a heck of a cliff-hanger. At the same time, it has lined up the following episodes to lead into a mid-season finale by soft-balling information and not being too intense, but just the right blend of comedic and dramatic. And then…well, and then there was “Bugs” – and what can we say about that one that hasn’t already been said?

Welcome back to the Supernatural "Memorable Moments" series! For 13.07, "War of the Worlds", I once again put together a list of what I felt were the best and most memorable moments from the episode. The list varies from episode to episode depending on what transpired.  I hope you enjoy it and share what your picks would be!

Sorry for the long delay on this one, just had a bad case of writer's block. The episode was definitely a high spot in #Supernatural's season 13, so I wanted to make sure to cover all the action! 
Yes, it's finally here!  That favorite time of year, where the masses can make their voices heard about the "Supernatural" season gone by.  It is time to vote in the Winchester Family Business Supernatural Season 13 Fan Choice Awards! 
 
Thanks to all that submitted their nominations.  I was able to get together a lot of great selections in most categories.  A few were lacking though, so you will see some very creative options there to fill those gaps!
