  • Crowley, King Of Hearts: A Final Farewell

    “Even when I lose, I win!” Beautiful and empowering words written by Mark Sheppard regarding Crowley and his final accomplishments in the show. As painful as this is to write, I assure you, it is even more painful to accept - but when has that ever stopped any of us? After all, Hell hath no fury like a fangirl scorned! The departure we were given in the finale left us gutted, angry, and confused. How do you say goodbye to someone who mastered saying “hello boys” so perfectly? I feel like no matter how hard I try to put my thoughts and emotions into words, nothing I write is good enough. To the characters on the show, Crowley was someone who was thought of only when needed most. But for me, he is someone who will absolutely never be forgotten.

    "Bad things do happen; how I respond to them defines my character and the quality of my life. I can choose to sit in perpetual sadness, immobilized by the gravity of my loss, or I can choose to rise from the painand treasure the most precious gift I have - life itself." — Walter Anderson

    "Those who improve with age embrace the power of personal growth and personal achievement and begin to replace youth with wisdom, innocence with understanding, and lack of purpose with self-actualization." — Bo Bennet

    Sometimes you forget how gruesome and disturbing Supernatural can be.

    "The gleam in their eyes telegraphs only too clearly that they are hoping for a headline, which of course means something disparaging, because nothing makes such good copy as a feud."— Chuck Palahniuk

  • Fan Video of the Week: Supernatural Reflections "First Blood"

     

    "Place me behind prison walls - walls of stone ever so high, ever so thick, reaching ever so far into the ground. There is a possibility that in some way or another I may be able to escape. But stand me on that floor and draw a chalk line around me and have me give my word of honor never to cross it. Can I get out of that circle? No. Never." — Karl G. Maeser

    How the Winchesters got into this situation was controversial but it was a juicy idea. I loved 2.19 "Folsom Prison Blues"and thought if "First Blood" was as well executed, we would have a grand old time. As it turned out, it was good but it could have been better. It would have been great if it would have lasted like two episodes.

    My chosen word for this fan vid article is, of course, "prison" so I checked up on a few episodes where our boys have been in prison or jail. Also, I might have chosen the weirdest song about prisons as a fan video but it works.

  • Fan Video of the Week: Supernatural Reflections "Keep Calm and Carry On"

     "Karma brings us ever back to rebirth, binds us to the wheel of births and deaths. Good Karma drags us back as relentlessly as bad, and the chain which is wrought out of our virtues holds as firmly and as closely as that forged from our vices." — Annie Besant

    I guess I should start this article with the familiar words: "Long time no see!" I am your friendly hiatus writer with the Fan Video articles.

    " For there is no friend like a sister in calm or stormy weather; To cheer one on the tedious way, to fetch one if one goes astray, to lift one if one totters down, to strengthen whilst one stands.”—  Christina Rossetti

     A long while I had trouble grasping an idea to use in this article. Luckily I could revisit it after the season ended and decided to choose the word 'sister' as my theme. We have found out that they are trying for another spinoff to Supernatural called Wayward Sisters. This episode was a little prequel to it. I also found three videos for the theme of the article this time, so, fair warning. Spoilers ahead!

    "The truth is, I'm proud of the life I've lived so far, and though I've made my share of mistakes, I have no regrets.—  Carly Fiorina

    The devil ain't got no power over me. The devil come, and me shake hands with the devil. Devil have his part to play. Devil's a good friend, too... because when you don't know him, that's the time he can mosh you down."— Bob Marley

    Loosing oneself is probably the worst that can happen to a person. Forgetting everything and everyone you hold dear. I mean of course it would be great to forget the bad stuff. Who wouldn’t want that? But if the cost was also to forget the good it is really not worth it.

    "A hero is an ordinary individual who finds the strength to persevere and endure in spite of overwhelming obstacles." — Christopher Reeve

  • Fan Video of the Week: Supernatural Reflections "Somewhere Between Heaven and Hell”

     

    "Don't call the world dirty because you forgot to clean your glasses.” — Joseph Addison

     

    After "The Raid", I was wondering what theme to use in the next article. I felt that it should have a light mood and a funny inside joke. So this article is an appreciation post to all the times Sam and Dean have worn glasses! This is a rarity because they have only used glasses in 8.14 Trial and Error and 12.15 Somewhere Between Heaven and Hell. The fan video will focus on the Hellhounds seen with the glasses because they appear in this episode, have taken a few beloved characters from us and they are probably the only monsters the boys still run away from!

    "The unreal is more powerful than the real, because nothing is as perfect as you can imagine it, because it's only intangible ideas, concepts, beliefs, fantasies that last. Stone crumbles, wood rots. People, well, they die. But things as fragile as a thought, a dream, a legend, they can go on and on." — Chuck Palahniuk

     

    This was a great episode and I had just the right videos saved for it. Like Sam, Dean and Castiel,  the movies it referenced are legendary. So the chosen word is "legend" mixed with brotherly and family feels. I have wanted to add two videos about the second song for a long time because Jensen sang it at a con. Also, I have a brief introduction to Tarantino's movies that the show referenced.

    " I write about the power of trying, because I want to be okay with failing. I write about generosity because I battle selfishness. I write about joy because I know sorrow. I write about faith because I almost lost mine, and I know what it is to be broken and in need of redemption. I write about gratitude because I am thankful - for all of it.”—  Kristin Armstrong

    "Loneliness is my least favorite thing about life. The thing that I'm most worried about is just being alone without anybody to care for or someone who will care for me." — Anne Hathaway

    The first word that came into my mind when the episode was over was "hurt". That even though Mary needed to do this, she hurt her boys.

  • Fan Video of the Week: Supernatural Reflections "The Raid”

     

    "The stars shall fade away, the sun himself Grow dim with age, and nature sink in years, But thou shalt flourish in immortal youth, Unhurt amidst the wars of elements, The wrecks of matter, and the crush of worlds."— Joseph Addison

     

    In this article I will focus on two immortal things, both of them as magnificent as they can be (although it seems The Colt wasn’t that immortal after all! TBC).

  • Fan Video of the Week: Supernatural Reflections "Who We Are"

     

    "Never forget what you are, for surely the world will not. Make it your strength. Then it can never be your weakness. Armour yourself in it, and it will never be used to hurt you." — George R.R. Martin, A Game of Thrones

     

    The name of the episode, "Who We Are", made me choose identity as the theme for this article. Mary and her boys are the best example of identity and who they are. In this episode, the past came to the forefront.

  • Fan Video of the Week: Supernatural Reflections 12.05 "The One You've Been Waiting For"

    "I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear." — Nelson Mandela

    Have you ever thought that Supernatural could be a series that predicts the future? What ever it is, this episode hit too close to home for some.

  • Far Away Eyes' Deeper Look Supernatural 12.11 "Regarding Dean"

    One of my fondest memories has to be the Halloween Blizzard of 1991. Any Minnesotan old enough to remember knows what I'm talking about. I was nine---and determined that I would trick or treat despite the knee-high snow and winds. My friends and I crawled over and through drifts---and one of my friends decided they would be a cheerleader that year, no matter what the weather. It was wild, fun, and something that makes me smile to this day. Other fond memories can be triggered just by a scent. Anything that smells like the Minnesota Renaissance Festival takes me to that beloved place in a heartbeat. It makes me think of the shows I've seen, the shops I've visited, and the atmosphere of the Festival all at once. Other memories aren't so good---times I've seen my parents in the hospital or had to say goodbye to a beloved pet. And yet, each experience makes me me. Each experience puts another page into my own history---shaping who I am now and who I will be in the future.
