Fandom meet up was GREAT. I got to put faces to some names I'd read and learn a few totally new ones, as well as freak out some members of the general public. Discussing fandom in real life with actual people is still a huge amazing novelty I really enjoyed! Yay generally!!! And if the person who bought me the lovely scarves and pretty and useful bag is reading this, thanks a lot to them too! I love purple and I love warmth! Excellent choices.
I am also excited about the news of covert S6 lunch deals. I always thought I'd want the show to end in season 5 since that's what Kripke's plan was and I loved that he actually had a plan. I also have a superstitious fear of sixth seasons (BtVS, I blame you) and a justified fear of flogging a dead horse (for which I blame almost every TV show I've ever loved that didn't get prematurely cancelled.... there's no pleasing me, yes I know). But Kripke probably threw his plan away last season, so there's not much point looking to that for guidance, and I heard he would want a sixth season to be intimate and back to basics, which is my very favourite thing, so I am... happy and hopeful. Or rather, really really excited and trying to tamp it down to more tentative happiness and hopefulness because Kripke likes to dash my hopes and break my heart.
Mostly I just cannot face the thought that in twelve episodes and one DVD boxset's time there might be no more new Sam and Dean footage ever. EVER. Maybe I'll look back one day, when S6 has done so much retconning I can't even enjoy S2 anymore, and long for the last vestiges of my younger self's happy, ignorant naiveté, but right now I am squeeful. Maybe Sam and Dean will get a year of relative happiness/bog standard hunting misery between sorting out Lucifer and dying their inevitable bloody depressing deaths! MAYBE.
Edit: And okay, maybe it would suck for Jared and Jensen to have to stay in Vancouver longer than they want to, but I've thought about it and decided that since they are successful in their dream career and also engaged to hot women, I can live it. Jared, Jensen, I love you, but I also love Sam and Dean. Sorry.
