Here it is – the one we’ve all been waiting for!

To recap just a bit, we started out the "Supernatural Hiatus Fan Fiction Series" with Chapter 1, “Every Thursday Night”, in which we discovered that Sam was teaching a night class, during their summer downtime.  In Chapter 2, “Castiel’s Big Mistake”, Cas returned from an angelic mission, and Bobby reached out to the boys from beyond the veil.  That led us to Chapter 3, "Mission from Bobby" (Side note: Jim Beaver, aka Bobby Singer himself, read Chapter 3 and sent the author a note that he liked it!).  The most recent installment was Chapter 4 – Countdown To Adventure, in which we learned about the mission Bobby had for Team Free Will.  We also found out about the surprise Dean had been planning!

All of that has led us to this point.  Welcome to Chapter 5 – Toes In The Sand!  Part 1 – Three Tickets To Paradise, has the boys going on the tropical vacation of a lifetime!

But, why are we still here?  Let’s head off to the Caribbean, with Sam and Dean and Cas!

Time to continue the countdown of our Favorite 100 Supernatural Episodes! This week I’m counting down numbers 40 to 31!  

How did we choose which episodes deserved to be on the Top 100 list? Rankings were determined by a group of rag-tag-war-torn fans who spend way too much of their time studying and writing about Supernatural! More specifically, participants in this ranking challenge included administrators and writers from The WFB, admins from the website Fangasm, and admins from Super-Fan-Wiki. Each individual’s rankings were tallied to create a consolidated list of our Top 100 Favorite Episodes - and by “tallied” I mean my computer-expert hubs took the excel spreadsheet and applied his math-genius skills, resulting in a formula that weighted and ranked the final results.  Details about this epic project (as well as the Runners-up episodes that just missed being on the list) are described in "The Road So Far" introduction.  It’s all about the Math, and say it with we – Math Don’t Lie. So let’s get to this week’s countdown!

Once upon a time, there was a little boy named Dmitri Tippens Krushnic who was born on August 20th, 1974 in Boston, Massachusetts.
Growing up, his family was poor; so poor that sometimes they were even homeless.
After he graduated from school, he interned for four months at the White House in Washington D.C,
studied social theory, was a construction worker and more. Then, on a lark, he decided to take an acting class.
That was the beginning of something marvelous.

In 2001, Dmitri married his high school love, Victoria Vantoch. They had two lovely kids, West Anaximander Collins (born in 2010) & Maison Marie Collins (born in 2012).

Who are we talking about?
Yes, it´s our actor, baker and candlestick maker Misha (nickname from a childhood friend) Collins (maiden name from his great grandmother)

Yes, we are talking about you Misha!

Supernatural’s San Diego Comic-Con 2019 Hall H Panel. If you’re in the #SPNFamily, you know all the emotions that were tied up in that last, momentous gathering of Supernatural’s cast, executive producers and fans of the longest running science fiction/fantasy show in America. From my research, I contend that Supernatural is the longest consecutively running science fiction/fantasy scripted hourly drama in the world.  That’s way too many qualifiers to run off the tongue easily, though, so let’s just suffice it to say, Supernatural is a one-of-a-kind classic. So, there was no way I was going to miss Supernatural's last Hall H appearance. No. Way.

As determined as I was to get inside the coveted Hall H for Supernatural's farewell, I had no idea how I was going to get through the panel without embarrassing myself with ugly tears. I knew Jared would cry, that was a given, and when he breaks down, I break down. It’s an unavoidable tear duct to tear duct connection. Since I cried when Mufasa died, and I shed big tears when Brian Piccolo died (Brian’s Song- the original version), and I’ll never watch Love Story again because I cried for hours when Oliver died, tears for a TV show (or movie) aren’t exactly new for me. But the Hall H panel was going to be real people, sitting just feet away from me, breaking down in tears. Yes, they are actors, but they wouldn’t be acting when the waterworks started.  

Time to resume the countdown of our Favorite 100 Supernatural Episodes! This week we begin releasing the TOP HALF of the list - out top 50 favorite Supernatural episodes of all time!

We have so much talent in the Supernatural fandom! Fans draw, edit photos and videos, write fan fics, create costumes or props, make jewelry and much more. It’s time to showcase the #SPNFamily’s talent and ask the people behind the creations some questions!

I´d like you to meet Esther, the woman behind spectacular drawings of Supernatural characters and actors. Some of you already know her but I bet all of you will love her and her art after this interview! I am proud that I was able to do the interview because I met her at PurCon for the second year in a row. I can tell you she is such a sweet person. Enough gushing! Let´s start with the interview!

Enjoy reading!

It's the return of our annual game!  I suddenly realized that I had gone this far in the summer without doing this fun little exercise and decided today was the day to fix that.  After all, we have a lot of Hellatus left! 

The game is simple.  Below is a list of all the episodes in "Supernatural" season fourteen.  You then list them according to your opinion from best to worst, but you only have five minutes to do it.  Make sure to share your results in the comments.  The key here is you've got to go on gut feel.  Don't deliberate too much.  

Not sure what happened in those episodes?  I certainly needed a refresher.  Go to our handy/dandy Season Fourteen Episode Guide and review the episode summaries first.  That should trigger the memory.  Once you're comfortable with which episode is which, set the timer and go.  Okay, for me it took a hair under six minutes, but honestly, the dog distracted me.  I swear!  If you end up taking ten minutes or so, I guess no one will know except you and fluffy.  But try not to create a pristine and perfect list based on hours of analysis.  Just go with what you liked.  The purpose of this exercise is to show what episodes people liked and disliked.  It's amazing the differences that result in these lists.
