THE REAL GHOSTBUSTERS SQUEE POST
THERE IS A TIME IN EVERY MAN'S LIFE WHERE HE MUST SUCK UP HIS MANHOOD AND ADMIT HE WAS WRONG. LADIES AND GENTLEMAN, I DREADED THE EPISODE FOR A WEEK. I DOUBTED THE KRIPKEEPER. I. WAS. WRONG.
The Then terrified me because it seemed wayyy too epic for this episode. I was like "Oh, dear God, don't tell me there will be brother issues on top of all this wank." LITTLE DID I KNOW. HAHA.
The 800 Impalas were hilarious. At this point I was still convinced I would hate the episode, so I wrote a very gruding note confessing that it was kind of funny.
I'd seen the "WE DROVE ALL NIGHT!" scene already online, so there was nothing new there but it just...this episode was like crack!fic, not an actual episode. Such good crack, though. And Olivia pointed out some fun role reversal: Jealous-Girlfriend!Dean making a sudden appearancein the form of rolling his eyes and being generally put off by Becky's fangirling of the Sam.
Boys are getting orange already. Jensen looked SO GOOD though. But Jared, dear God. THE SIDEBURNS, MAN. CUT THAT SHIT OUT. I've Decided they shall be superheroes. Sideburns Man and his sidekick, Pretty Boy.
I was so amused when we saw the fan base. Who do you think you are, Kripke, Joss Whedon? There were more men in that room than there were across America watching the episode.
THIS LARPING DEAN HAS THE AUMLET OF INCESTUAL GLORY AND REAL DEAN DOES NOT. PAIN. WOE. ANGST. GIVE IT THE FUCK BACK, CASTIEL, YOU ANGELIC FUCK.
I don't like Becky. She really annoys me. But she was necessary to this episode, and this episode was so necessary to my life--even my monster cramps will not kill my good mood now (mai overshare, let me show u it). Though I did kind of adore when that European guy was talking shit and she went crazy protective fangirl on his ass. Because hello, have you met us? I so would have, too.
"Frightened Little Boy" discussion on Dean. I LOLED. Dean Winchester died inside. But he knows that shit is true.
"Homoerotic Subtext" - ...There's homoerotic subtext on Supernatural? I never realized. I loved how Sam and Dean's "shocked" faces were more like "I am intrigued by this."
Chuck! Publishing more books!! I CANNOT BELIEVE YOU. V. bad. That's a v. bad Chuck! But I loved how indignant the boys were. And having Chuck say "I have no marketable skills." was hilarious. "We are not good writers, but if you guys want to watch the show...hey, whatever!" Oh, writers room.
I don't know if I believe that the Winchester brothers are slow enough to have taken that first scream seriously, but I guess they don't know as much about fandom as I do. Hey! Look! There are things I know that the Winchester brothers don't!!!! And the whole time I was like "this is relevant to my interests, I kinda wanna LARP a little."
I ALSO LOVE IT WHEN THEY TALK AT THE SAME TIME. The "*eyes meet* I NEED A DRINK." moment made me flailll.
So my theory here was that it was going to be a Tulpa, and I think that would have made much more sense than the wanky hunt they had. It would have been kind of smart, you know? Some overeager idiot fan puts up the symbol for authenticity and then all the other geeks are spending all of this time thinking about it and believing in it, so of course it pops up. And we still could have had the fans save the day the same way, because salting and burning is how the people would have believed the ghosts would be killed, anyway. I mean, don't get me wrong, I LOVED THE EPISODE. But the ghost stuff was wanky. First of all--when did we stop using blue flames for extinguishing ghosts? Because I miss that shit as fuck. Second, I just feel like having it be a real haunting was *so predictable* and we already used the parent-figure-as-red-herring-but-is-real
Okay, when they were having Yellow Eyed Coolers, I soooo wanted them to be having Purple Nurples.
"You guys are really into this." "You have no idea." - AHAHAHAHAHAHA.
So, Sam and Dean Winchester go into an attic together. Insert sex noises. I am just saying, internet, I am just saying.
I really liked having the fans making fun of Batman voice (even though Sam doesn't have Batman voice and "Sam's" Batman voice was way better than "Dean's").
I didn't like having Dean keep saying the things the fans said after the fans said them. Having the fans quoting dialogue and using Dean's lines on the actress was hilarious. But having the fans say wanky polarized versions of what the boys would say and then having the boys repeat it just made it feel like bad writing. MOST NOTABLY: When they find the map, the "Dean" says something really annoyed and in the end calls him "Sammy." I wrote down, "Dean doesn't call him Sammy when he's annoyed, thanks." AND THEN DEAN DID IT. AND. IT. WAS. WRONG.
Random squee moment is random: I LOVED when they went over to see the map Damian and Barnes had and snatched it away (way to be the playground bullies, btw, boys <3 <3 <3) and Sam knew the moment he had his hands on it that it was authentic and centuries old. OH, BE STILL MY RAGING HEART--THERE IS A RESEARCH NERD IN HIM YET!
"Bobby, Rufus, keep up." - Sam and Dean are Bobby and Rufus now? ...Do I ship it? Yes.
When Dean gave his BEAUTIFUL tirade because he couldn't take it anymore, he pointed at the guy making a mockery of Sam before he pointed at the guy making a mockery of him. He is more annoyed by people making light of his little brother. No, I'm serious, hold his hand and he'll stop yelling, Sam. I Loved Dean's speech so much, even though it broke my heart, especially in the end when the fans turned it on him. BEAUTIFULLL. And then Sam's adorable little "He's really into the story."
LOLOL. The fanboys are manning the flashlights. *thumbs up*
Dean buys fan boys a rould of drinks. Because he is basically the best person ever.
"Angels--not nearly as lame as you think." - Oh Jesus, has anyone seen my ass? I seem to have laughed it off and now I cannot find it.
OK, AND WHEN THEY GOT DISTRACTED WHILE TRYING TO CONVINCE THE ACTRESS TO HELP THEM, AND DEAN JUST TURNS TO SAM AND SAYS "Just give her the puppy dog thing, okay?" OMGOMGOGMOGMODIFJGIODFHFUSYDGFCYU. 1. PUPPY DOG EYES ARE OFFICIALLY CANON. 2. DEAN KNOWS WHAT WORKS ON HIM AND THINKS HIS BROTHERT IS TOO CUTE FOR ANYONE TO RESIST HIM.
"Because it's what Sam and Dean would do." - IT'S TRUE, THEY WOULD, BECAUSE MY BOYS HAVE SUCH GOOD HEARTS. OMGOMGOMG. SO CUTE. THEY BELIEVE IN THE BOYS. AND DEAN WILL SEE HOW MUCH HE MEANS TO PEOPLE. AND REALIZE THAT HE HAS A GOLDEN SOUL.
The FANS WILL SAVE THE DAY?!!?
ERIC FUCKING KRIPKE, PLEASE GET ON MY VAGINA.
HE. LOVES. US. AND WE LOVE HIM! AND THIS EPISODE WAS JUST A GIANT BALL OF AFFECTIONATE LOVE FOR US. AND WE LOVE IT. AND ONE DAY I WILL FORCE HIM TO CUDDLE WITH ME. IN BED. MY FANDOM FANGIRLS ME BACK AND IT FEELS FANTASTIC.
Barnes was being all dejected and Damian said something along the lines of "I know you can do it." OF COURSE THE DEAN SUPER BELIEVES IN THE SAM. BE STILL, MY THUMPING HEART.
Ok, so I really hated Chuck being all dejected and in Love with Becky the whole time because 1) it's pathetic and 2) she's genuinely insane, I was honestly a little disappointed with him most of the episode, though it's A++ in retrospect. AS coyotesuspect pointed out: KRIPKE SHIPS HIMSELF/FANDOM. I. SHIP. IT. TOO. Even though dating ones biggest fan is like masturbating on yourself, that's what this episode was about. It was basically the writers saying "We really amuse us." and Us saying "We're really amused by how much you guys amuse yourselves." CRIME FIGHTER CHUCK = WINWINWIN. I WAS SO PROUD OF HIM, YES I WAS.
"The Supernatural books make this whole grave digging thing seem so much easier." - UH, THAT'S BECAUSE THE WINCHESTER BROTHERS ARE FUCKING MACHINES.
AND THEN THAT MOMENT BETWEEN DEAN AND BARNES/DAMIAN. OFHSGYFUHDIJFOUIAYUVRTSDAEDAYHJUBYGTRD. Dean is really cute, I Love how *proud* he was of the boys. Though I'm not totally sure he should be encouraging those guys to hunt. Relatedly, I Love Jensen Ackles.
"You don't get it." - O.M.F.G. This speech. And Dean's reaction to it. WAS BEAUTIFUL. My heart seriously warmed up by at least 3 degrees. "YOU'RE LUCKY BECAUSE YOU HAVE A BROTHER THAT WOULD DIE FOR YOU. LIFE'S NOT SO BAD AS LONG AS THERE'S WINCEST." TO WHICH DEAN REPLIES "I GUESS YOU'RE RIGHT." ISHFGDPOUIYFDIGHFSGDHYUI. AND THEN THOSE BOYS ARE LOVERS AND I WILL CONFESS, I STOOD UP, PUT MY NOTEBOOK DOWN AND JUMPED UP AND DOWN WHILE SQUEALING. BECAUSE YOU KNOW WHAT THIS WAS? I thought last week was so nice because they really made Wincest canon with all of the "Oh, haha, these brothers have sex jokes." But do you know what this week did that was even better? IT SAID IN SO MANY WORDS "IT IS A BEAUTFUL LOVE." WINCEST BEING VINDICATED BY CANON AND I JIZZED. IN. MY. PANTS.
And I'm sorry, but I had to feel a little smug, after all of the shipping drama this week that THIS was the episode that aired. Because it was not Wincest jokes. It was very seriously saying "This is how it is, and guys, it is fantastic." I FEEL AS THOUGH KRIPKE REACHED DOWN HIS SPARKLY GOD HAND AND SAID "EVERYONE WHO DOES NOT SHIP WINCEST IS. WRONG. Usually I am not a shipping wars person, I say too each his own. And I still do, I am totally fine with anyone out there reading this who doesn't Believe in the Wincest--I get it. But this is something I needed and to the people who don't ship Wincest and are rude about it, I say: Take that, jerks trying to make me ashamed of my Brotherfucking OTP. THOSE BROTHERS ARE FOR REALLY IN LOVE.
Sam playing along with Becky? OH, YOU DRAMA NERD HOMMOSEXUAL BAG OF LOVE, COME HERE SO I CAN EAT YOU. NO REALLY, OMNOMNOMMITYNOM.
"You can write more books, Chuck, it's okay." "Really?" "No. We have guns and we will come after you." - AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. SAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM
And then Becky runs up and tells them about the colt and I Loved how lampshade that was. I also Love that they gave the fangirl the power to fix what the writers got wrong. YOU LOVE OUR FANFICTION, ERIC KRIPKE. God, what's next, are they going to have an Archangel tell us to keep writing or something? LOLWAIT. I also like how it was in one of the worst. books. ever. Of course, only the truly devote would be willing to get that intimate with Time is On My Side. And I could slap you boys for not thinking of reading the series for clues.
OK. Dean. Standing at the Impala. 1) He looked so beautiful. 2. He looked radiant. He was stading there, reflecting on the fact that people who try to be him and his brother are in Love and he looked so at peace. So IN LOVE. It was such a beautiful moment.
This episode's happy making abilities were DISGUSTING. I was feeling really rotten, I've been in a lot of pain today, and it's always really hard to cheer me up on days when my body is like this. But this episode left me on a fucking cloud--I could not be more thankful for that. My fears were so unfounded, I didn't feel embarassed or picked on, I didn't feel as if the people at Chicago Con were being picked on, or as if the joke was being taken too far. This was a love letter and a gift, and it has restored any doubts I had about this season. IN KRIPKE WE TRUST.
Finally, I must respond to next week. The clip of which was so not enough, by the way, considering how epic this episode is supposed to be, but I guess not giving anything away was the point. Possible spoilers, so don't highlight this if you're avoiding them. So...Dean/Jo. First of all, I am not a fan of the ship. I'm actively opposed to it. But I didn't recognize her in the spot and I thought she was some random chick and I was like "Wow, that is a beautifully tender kiss for some random girl." and that's what I Love about Dean, he is so tender for all his bravado, the sex scenes we have gotten are consistently tender, unlike Sam's. I'm pretty sure I will like the kiss, if that's all that happens. Because I'm pretty sure she's dying and I can chalk it up to that. But if they go there with sex...first of all, next week seems like it'll be a little epic, do we really have time for a sex scene? I mean, really. And are we killing Ellen and Jo in the same episode because I know two people are dying, but it being Ellen and Jo is a little much and I'm pretty sre Ellen is dead meat, but if Dean and Jo have sex because he thinks she's gonna die and she doesn't, I will gag. Because I was so sure that if we hadn't gone there yet we weren't going to, because I know she has her weepy love for Dean but I didn't think Dean would go there because he can't love her and got too close to use her for sex (Dean is so a good soul). But will excuse if he's trying to comfort her on her way out
And I have to get ready for class now. To all my girls who I still owe love on my last post, hang in there. I got set back from being productive, but the EPIC LOVE is coming. Also, if you want to be loved on, please go here!
