SPN Fic: How the Other Side Lives

 Title: How the Other Side Lives

Author: Tenoko1

Characters/Pairings: Becky Rosen, Charlie Bradbury, eventual Sarah Blake, mentioned Winchesters, and background Dean/Cas.

Warnings: fix-it fic in a lot of ways, you’ll see why. Some angst. Case!fic.

Summary: Maybe God doesn’t always answer prayers, and maybe the Apocalypse nearly happening without him stepping into stop it had been really bad, but it’s becoming clear that things always work out, even if they don’t work out the way you wanted or expected them to, they work out the way you didn’t know you needed.

AN: Personal headcanon that got away from me.

Spoilers: Starts after 8.16 with references throughout series. Will possibly fold in new episodes as they air.

Supernatural: Reflection and evolution

Also available in mp3 and m4b format to listen to.

 Okay so I am currently sick with Pneumonia, which I can tell you is hella lotta fun, so meanwhile while I am stuck in bed sleeping and watching TV when awake, which is not the vacation it sounds like because I am sick and miserable and have a migraine to top it all off, I am rewatching Supernatural to keep me company.

I started rewatching the series not just for something to do in the hours I am awake, but because while watching (and loving) Season Eight, it is very obvious how the show and the boys have changed. A lot of fans gripe about this, and the fact that the show use to be gritter, reflected even in the lighting and tones that used when filming the show, they break it up into ears. Kripke-era, Sera Gamble-era, and Season Gr8, which will eventually be called the Jeremy Carver-era, most likely.

While watching, I also understand why the series has changed with time, and rather like it. The series has changed as the boys have changed. Think about it. In season one, when we first meet the boys, they are young and plucky and quite frankly, sheltered still. They’ve seen a lot of crap and think they’ve seen their share of nightmares, but when you compare it to what all they eventually see, well, they’re still sheltered. In season one, the entire Winchester family is TERRIFIED of demons. Demons are the scariest sonsuvbitches in the entire freaking world. By the time they get to season eight, demons don’t even make the boys blink, they’re a common, easily dispensed problem, as routine as morning coffee.

In season one, the world for them is dark, nitty, gritty, and terrifying. By season eight, even the look of the show is lighter and easier, because the very things that use to terrify the Winchesters the most are no longer even really a concern. Sure, they are dangerous and not to be taken lightly, but they are something the Winchesters have faced and over come time and time again, and not something that sets them on edge anymore.

I mean, Meg was a SERIOUS threat in Season one and came back to cause a helluva lot of problems in Season Two when she made Sam her meatsuit for a week and rode him like a prize horse. Kinda naughty. Then she’s back in Season five causing problems again, gets two beloved characters and practical family members of Dean and Sam killed, horribly. By Season Seven, she’s working with the Winchesters, practically dating Dean’s bff, and is one of their allies because there are much more serious threats to the world at the moment. Season eight, she finally shows up again, and immediately joins forces with the Winchesters, because HEY! Bigger threat than me right now!

I would remind you that Meg, a demon, is the longest surviving character in the show. Dean’s first brush with death was in Season One, and only survived through strong-arming a reaper into trading his life for someone else's. He dies again at the beginning of Season two only to survive when his father makes a deal with a devil. Sam dies by the end of the second season. This almost becomes a tradition for them at that point, because they both start dying quite a bit and surviving through some miracle or demonic deal. Literally. Castiel himself has died on more than one occasion and been brought back without explanation. Meg has survived longer than anyone on this show. Girl’s good.

Back to my point, after everything they go through and are still going through, the show has shifted, gotten lighter, the boys have changed, keep in mind the show covers a ten year time period at this point. Change happens, no one is the same as they were ten years ago. The things that terrified them ten years ago are commonplace now. Some demons they’ve been enemies with for so long, they are practically friends now.

Dean once had no faith in God or angels or that both even existed, and Sam was the one with the faith and hope. Now Dean has a serious bone to pick with God, and an angel is one of the few Dean calls family. The tone of the show is lighter because the strain it puts on the boys is lighter, really, when it comes to monsters. They’ll handle it, like everything else that gets thrown their way.

The emotional stuff is actually what’s harder on them right now. Monsters are routine, they know how to handle that. They’ve never learned how to operate OUTSIDE of that though. Sam has, Sam knows there is a life outside of hunting and knows that there is a way out, or a way to adapt, that this life isn’t all there is for them. Dean doesn’t see that, because since he was four years old, monsters have ruled his life. He started being trained in firearms at age six. His life was protect Sam, obey Dad, fight the monsters.

He can’t see a light at the end of the tunnel because he’s never really been taught how to operate outside of what is now a comfort zone for him. He really knows nothing outside of it. Even in S6 (which we won’t talk about) he’s clinging more to an idea of that light at the end of the tunnel, a true happy ending. He’s clinging to what he thinks he should want and wonders why it isn’t making him happy like he thought it would.

Sam and Amelia… is another one of those things I don’t want to talk about. I think Sam did the exact same thing Dean did in Season Six, he found a life raft and he CLUNG to it. Sam clearly wasn’t actually happy, but he as keeping his head above water and not focusing on the fact that water was still trying to pull him down. It’s like survivors of a traumatic experience trying to put on a act, maybe if I convince myself I’m fine and things aren’t all fucked up, then other people will believe it too.

I like the current season and how the show has evolved and changed and the fact that the boys are having to deal with emotional stuff now and that they are struggling with it. That the monsters are commonplace and routine problems at this point, but still so much and bogging down on the boys that they don’t really see a way out. It makes sense that Dean has obvious PTSD and depression, shows symptoms of untreated childhood PTSD, that he can fight a war and kill monsters and stand toe-to-toe with demons and angels and not bat an eye, but it’s a life outside of that that scares him, because he doesn't know how to deal with the unknown, doesn't know how to let go of something that has been his entire life since he was four years old.

Sam sees a way out, and granted sometimes he doubts, but they are both running headlong through a forest at night, tripping and stumbling and striving for that light in the distance that will get them out and get them home. Sam saw the light, keeps picking up Dean and forcefully tugging him along behind him when Dean is tired and wants to give up, because Dean didn’t see the glimpse of light in the distance through the trees. In Dean’s mind, they are running on faith toward something that could have been the figments of Sam’s hopeful thinking, a mirage.

At this point too, Dean is fighting to bring Cas along with them. This friend that they’ve made that, I think the show has proven, Dean can’t live without anymore than he could live without his brother. Dean is never willing to fight for himself, though, but Dean will fight for the sake of others, so if and when Cas comes back, Dean will drag him along with them, fighting to get them to that light the same way Sam is fighting to get Dean there. So they stumble and crash through the underbrush and trees for something they can’t see but have a waning faith might actually exist.

The show started out about revenge; now it’s about hope, and I like that.

Supernatural comes back tomorrow

Am I the only one bouncing in their seat? I'm really not sure how I feel, there are so many things, because YAY! SUPERNATURAL! followed by OH GOD HOW ARE THEY GOING TO BREAK MY HEART NOW?!

In which case, when the episode DOES air there's probably going to be a lot of this when it comes to Dean and Cas:

And my typical reaction when it comes to Sam and Amelia:

Anyone else? And yes, I know, hi, haven't been on in a while. Been busy. Also, haven't been writing fanfic. Writing my own novel. And recording podfic.

Podfic cover

So I'm currently working on a new podfic called "Hard Road" by Aleisha Potter and this is the podcover I've made for it as of right now. I like it, i think I'll keep it. I think it's fitting to the story.

Summary: Dean discovers a few truths about himself when he and Cas are forced to go undercover on a hunt to the very last place Dean ever thought he'd find himself: a gay resort, called "Last Hope", geared towards failing homosexual relationships.

It looks appropriate, right? I'm not done with the podfic itself, yet. I've done about 40% of it.

Just wanted to say....


BTW, there was a debate between the possible world saving parties about whether or not this apocalypse was the be averted by the Winchesters or if the Doctor should see to it. Dean insisted on deciding with a game of Rock, Paper, Scissors, as the Winchester use it for most of their important decisions, but then the Doctor pointed out that he would probably be saving the world on Christmas, so it was only fair that the Winchesters avert this particular end. In the idea of fairness, they were inclined to agree.

The Doctor is scheduled to do it again from a different threat on Tuesday. Wish him luck, keep calm, and believe in the doctor. The Winchesters (Castiel included, of course, as the third Winchester) taking a Christmas vacation as a reward to themselves.

So I was at Wal-Mart, right?

Place of evil, but a necessary evil I think we all agree, and I saw it. Right there. On the shelf of the electronic section, on an end display.

Being Human. USA version.

Starring Mark Pellegrino.

Granted, I know very little of this show, or if the BBC version is better than the American version or if they are anything alike at all really, but when i considered whether or not I should buy it simply because Mark Pellegrino is in it (AKA Lucifer) the answer I got was YES. If Mark Pellegrino is the question, the answer is always yes.

So yeah. I guess it would be appropriate to say that the devil made me do it? Twitter supported this decision as well.

Anything else by him you would recommend? or that you saw him in and he was, as he always is, fabulous?

Per Misha Collins: Destiel is Canon.

Seriously, though. Supernatural is prett much the ultimate show. It has everything you could want. If you are into cop show, medical show, sitcoms, whatever, Supernatural IS THAT and it's CANON! http://carryonmywaywardvampire.tumblr.com/post/34561804964

Also, from the con this weekend, and a lovely person keeping tumblr updated with everything:

"misha said destiel is canon

misha said the writers are aware it’s canon

misha confirmed jeremy carver was gonna resolve cas and dean’s relationship later in the season

misha said just cause it’s unspoken doesn’t mean it’s not real

misha also said it’s mutual love, not unrequited"

"At the meet n greet, after the Carver comment that Misha made, we all must’ve made astonished faces because Misha impatiently said, I think the love there is made pretty clear.

And I said, Sure, on Cas’s part, its well established that he loves Dean, but i don’t think it is on Dean’s side. (yes, arguing just to get him to elaborate, I’m bad)

And he sorta rolled his eyes and said, C’mon, in the first few episodes, Dean’s running around Purgatory, chopping off heads, Where’s the angel, where’s the angel, you know, the guy I’m in love with?


Misha: He might as well have. You know, we know what it is, what’s going on. We don’t talk about it. The actors don’t, Jensen and I don’t. But we’re all perfectly aware of how the relationship is, the writers are completely aware of how it’s being written. It may be unspoken but that doesn’t mean it’s not there or not true.

Yes, at the Meet n Greet, Misha completely confirmed that Dean and Cas are in a love relationship. He did not specify romantic or sexual, but then again… At that point, he didn’t need to."

So that. Misha's own words. And then this:

lol They're adorable and silly. I wonder what their wives think half the time when they're pulling stunts like this. ^_^

If that doesn't warm the cockles of your heart, nothing will, because you have no soul.

Also, further proof why our fandom is better than others:

I rest my case.

Uh, who's excited for tonight's episode of Supernatural?

*winces as the entirety of the internet screams in delight and anticipation*

Yeah, that's what I thought. Last week and the response to it were truly phenomenal. In fact, that's exactly what RDJ said about it.

We still have several hours to go and I don't know how I'll manage. The stress of the anticipation, you see.

Regardless, we will get through this. And it will be a (hopefully) awesome episode. Misha wishes us luck in our wait, so let us bask in so much pretty in one being, shall we?

Aw crap, Sheldon and I have been sent into hyperventilation again. Brb, need paper bag.

In other news, basic meme, dunno why I've been wanting to do one of these, but as a Virgo, we like making lists and I've liked doing a Favorite Things lists since as far back as I can remember.

Ten Questions )

tenoko1: (GW:Zechs- rofl He's reading Twilight)
2012-10-16 09:35 am

So... coincidence? Or related?

Okay, so I'm currently listening to the audiobook for Twilight. First off, I loved the book, I know it's not for everyone. I hate Stephen King. It happens. The audiobook is quite bad, imo. She's killing the story. She's a really terrible narrator, I mean, so many podficcers are so much better. Bella is funny, has a temper, and fairly sarcastic. When Bella is using dry, sarcastic humor that is HYSTERICAL... the narrator just makes her sound bitchy. When Edward is being cocky and teasing, it comes out uncertain and confused. I'm like, "Did she READ the book before she narrated it?! You're suppose to READ the story FIRST!!"

But I digress, as my disappointment with the audiobook is not the point of this entry. I'm wondering when Twilight came out in accordance to Supernatural. Because in the first quarter of the book alone there have been a Dean, Sam, Rachel, Jessica, Mike (Michael), and Becky. And I'm going "hunter, hunter, angel, dead, archangel, fangirl". It has to be a coincidence, they are fairly basic names, I guess, but that's SIX characters from my show in the first quarter of this book. How often do you read a book that one character is the same as your favorite show or something, but SIX?!

Third, I'm about to put in an audio audition, does anyone here do it professionally or have they in the past? I have some questions. Secondly, I have to read a "gender appropriate" book for my reading and I'm trying to decide which book. I'm female, btw. Granted, all the reading I've done until now has dealt with a mostly male cast (Supernatural) and I think we as poddficcers do a wonderful job, regardless of our genders or the characters, I never think "Oh hey, why is a girl reading playful banter between these two brothers? That's not gender appropriate."
