RL and Supernatural  
I am one of those people who can't help singing along. I have a decent voice, but I also know my limitations (which is why you won't see me auditioning for American Idol any day soon, *snort*), so I mostly sing for myself. Except today I have bronchitis and sound like a frog. Boy, it's bad. I can't stand to hear it, and yet I still have the instinct to do it. It's driving me nuts.

Being sick was good in a way, thoough, because it let me mainline Supernatural yesterday. Pretty much all day, I did nothing but watch my DVDs (and hack up a lung) preparing for the premiere yesterday.

And now I see why people migrated to the fandom. The show did improve after the pilot and first ep (because, well, I watched them originally and was pretty underwhelmed). But watching the core eps of the season (I still haven't seen a few that seem like the filler) are pretty strong.

The premiere was really good too, I was impressed.

snifffle. John.

my rat of a husband decided to sit next to me and munch popcorn in my ear through John's speech at the end. GAH! the entire episode he's fooling around on the computer across the room and at that very moment he decides to sit next to me? Murderous thoughts for thirty seconds there. But then he got grabbed too and shut up to watch.

Poor Dean, poor Sam. awwww! This was just one big sniffle fest for all of them. I liked the Reaper girl quite a lot. She was (mostly) matter-of-fact about it, doing her job, and her point that Dean was on the road to becoming something he hated, was the only thing she could've said to get him to leave.

Now, I will admit, I'm not quite as big a fan of John as many (although I do think he's well acted and his flaws are realistic), but I do think he did the only thing he could, given who he is. Putting the choice the other way, sacrificing his son for the bare chance of killing the demon, it looks pretty untenable. But deals with the devil always turn bad, so we'll see how John's deal turns against the boys (aside from the obvious loss).

So did the Reaper die? Can Reapers die? they said earlier that a Reaper there naturally can't be fought or killed, so if she was pushed away/killed does that mean Dean wasn't really 'supposed' to die? or was it just that the Fire Demon (does it have a name?) is so powerful?

And what the frell did John whisper to Dean? BAH! Blatant manipulation of the audience - but man, is it working.

Anyway, great opener and I'm glad I gave into everyone's Squee. But I don't really need a new show/fandom, y'all. Not with BSG starting NEXT WEEK.

But I am lamenting my lack of any Supernatural icons, so I guess I got sucked in. I have no time for reading or writing fic for it, though, which is probably a good thing at this point.

Yeah, I think the Reaper was killed by the demon. I think the demon's powers trump whatever the Reaper possesses and that's why she/it was in so much pain and so surprised at what happened. And I'm not convinced that John is dead, although I'm just about certain that he sold his soul in return for Dean's.

*pets the pretty icon*

I need an icon of him in the hospital, in the scrubs. yummy.

yes, I agree about the selling his soul part. About the first part, I think he's toast. At the moment anyway. until he gets to be a ghost, spirit, demon-spawn, whatever. He could even, given the name of the show, be re-embodied at some point. so yeah, I have no doubt he's coming back either.

poor Reaper. Makes me imagine uber-Reapers, who come for the Reapers... Or cosmologically, maybe angels would come for Reapers? bah, too much thinkiness, when I don't know the show's mythology all that well yet.
