just in bello report - day #3 part one  
Phew. Okay, last report. As usual, will break your dial-up. Also includes random pictures of stuff that wasn't included in the other two and general impressions at the end. This is also split in two because I have a bunch of pics and I don't want to clutter.

Please, do not hotlink pictures. Just in case, but since it already happened, I thought I'd state it.

So, day three was, uh, weird at the beginning at least. Mostly because while I did win a challenge with myself (aka: drive until the airport without crashing the car and killing the other three people with me in the process), the morning went more or less like this. I wake up at 6.30 and take a look at the mirror, then I think, 'I have the Misha/Jen op today. Do I have breakfast or do I wash my hair?'. Answer was, WASH YOUR HAIR, which meant that I drove for forty minutes with just a single coffee in my system which I drank while drying said hair. My idea was getting to the airport, sit and have a nice, quiet, SITTING time during Traci's panel, but then it happened that actors were still having breakfast and everything ran late, so they aired the dubbed S4 premiere AGAIN instead of the panel.

Considering that I had spent the first day trying to AVOID listening to it, it brought to forty minutes of hopeless wandering through the hotel with an empty stomach, and I wasn't going to have breakfast at the hotel's bar because they charged you 2.50 euros for a coffee. By the way, someone with the breakfast trays passed in front of me and fyi, someone in that cast likes sausages and eggs for breakfast. They had at least five plates of that. Anyway, thankfully they interrupted the episode about ten minutes before it was over and while my friend was having ops with Jensen I went and saw Traci's panel, which was AWESOME and featured random Misha crashing, too, which def. wasn't something I complained about.

Premise: Traci is GORGEOUS. SERIOUSLY. NEW GIRL CRUSH? I HAVE IT. Apart from being gorgeous she's seriously sweet and every other possible good thing you could say about her, aw. She came in with a bongo which she played after, but more on that on the report which follows.

- First thing, the presenter asked her if she wanted to hear her dubber (WHY WOULD YOU? JESUS I HATE DUBBING AND THIS COUNTRY AND PEOPLE THINKING THAT DUBBING IS AWESOME DON'T REALLY GET IT) and she seemed actually pleased; then again, her dubber was at least decent (differently from Misha's, but that's for his panel's report) and she was all excited and said she'd love to meet her voice actress;
- Then someone asked her how she felt about fandom's reaction to her character and she said that she got teary eyed when she read reactions to the first episode after it aired; she thinks it's also because despite the flirting Pamela wasn't created as a love interests and she's strong/independent on her own. Even if she does grope;
- She defined herself as a feminist;
- She said that Jesse was def. a big mistake but that she does get that because when she was young she experimented with a bunch of crap (sex, drugs and rock n' roll I guess) and ended up having some problems with her mom when she pierced her nose even if she did much worse than that (she stopped that when she started doing yoga btw);
- Her mom, by the way, has a total crush on Jim Beaver;
- At one point there was some laughing going on because someone was in the hallway saying that Jensen ops were on THEN and it was the last call and some other stuff and she couldn't talk, then she was like 'okay, let's just not talk for a second' and suddenly it stopped; also almost no one left the panel even if she said she wasn't going to get offended if they did;
- She'd have loved to see some backstory for Bobby and Pamela because she thinks they had one and pretty good/meaty/interesting;
- There was a call again for the Jensen op, no one left and she said she was teary eyed;
- SPOILER QUESTION FOR 5x16

When asked how was it like to kiss Jensen, she answered that he's a very lucky man and that if that kiss has a meaning, she'd rather know what we think about it rather than sharing with the class;
- At that point she took up the bongo and started both playing and sincing and OMG SHE'S SO GOOD. She was singing a yoga chant which I used to do too when I still managed to attend yoga classes and duuuh, it shows that she was in a band (she said it after) because she's GOOD at it, and she has such a beautiful voice. We sang along with her too!
- Someone asked her, then, what kind of goddess would she like to be since her name on twitter is GrooveGoddess and she answered that it depends and mentioned a bunch of female deities from different religions; also, her name on twitter is that because she was in an ethnic band doing world fusion music which was called Groove Goddesses, and then talked some more about yoga and spiritual principles; actually when someone with a sore throat came to ask her a question she gave them chakra tips!
- At one point I had spotted Misha getting in some two mins before because he was up next and he was sitting on this chair at the back of the stage; at one point she asked if someone in the audience wanted to ask a question in other panels, too, but was too shy to, and added that they could come forward and she'd love to answer that. So Misha stands up, goes to the mic, folds in two with his hands on his knees, starts stuttering and faking a blush, opens his mouth once or twice and then is like 'OH, I CAN'T!!' and runs out of the room. Best part: HE WAS RIGHT IN FRONT OF ME AND WHOEVER HAD THAT CHAIR WAS HAVING THEIR JENSEN OP. Yes, I have visual evidence, of course. ;)
- After he ran Traci said AW, PRECIOUS! -> AWESOME.
- At this point she was asked about her next projects; she said she'll play a lesbian in love with a straight woman in some independent movie based on a true story and then mentioned being Patsy Cline in that theater production; at that point Misha crashed the stage again also because it was his turn and she told him that they could totally sing Patsy Cline together and he refused that (pity, I'd have loved it) and then they hugged and she had to go. BUT SHE WAS SO AWESOME. Uh, before I forget: after hugging her, Misha said she has better biceps than Jared. XD
- Also, at some point during that, I think while she was talking about how fandom took her character so well when females aren't usually, someone said 'because we love you' or something like that, all the room started clapping and I think she got really teary eyed. I was moved myself, dammit. XD

Pictures!

Just right after, Misha stayed and started his third panel which SHOULD have been an auction but actually became that just in the last fifteen minutes. And here he totally outdid himself.

- First thing he did, or ALMOST first thing he did: someone mentioned the underwear, he stood up, ACTUALLY OPENED HIS PANTS AND SHOWED A TRIANGLE SO WE COULD SEE THAT HE WAS WEARING ONE PAIR OF THE ORANGE UNDERWEAR. Sadly I didn't manage to snap a pic, but I hope someone did. Also, HE HAS GREAT HIPBONES. Seriously great hipbones. Srsly. I'm still stuck on that.
- That said, he wished us happy easter and talked about American traditions; apparently children search for eggs in neighbors' houses, but they never find them in HIS house for some reason, he forgets and then months later he finds rotten eggs in random places;
- At that point he said he wanted to spice things up and asked if anyone wanted to come up on stage, then chose someone who DIDN'T say they wanted to come up and had her sitting next to him. If that girl's around give me a shout? I need to give you one internet for the awesomeness.
- Then he started asking her all the weird questions he got asked the day before, first of which was the bodyswapping one. Meaning, he asked her if she'd switch body with Sam or Dean. She said Sam so she could be next to Dean and he was like 'oh, sure. So, you'd switch bodies with Sam in order to make out with Dean. That's a totally acceptable answer' and the room went down laughing.
- At that point he asked her if she watched the show in English and then asked the audience if someone actually waited for the Italian version, at which the presenter had this GREAT idea of showing him the dubbed final scene of episode 4x01 thanks to that wonder who was Valentino, the sound guy (people who were there probably are cracking up if thinking about him...). So they put on the ending of 4x01 and Jeeeesus. If Dean and Sam's voices imo suck, Castiel's takes the cake. Okay, they used the same dubber they had for Jack from Lost which just says everything (BTW: he totally is wrong for Jack too) but as soon as Misha heard it he like shook his head and started laughing out of desperation. Then after one minute (thankfully because I couldn't take more) he's like 'duh. So that's me. Phewww, I sound like I'm fifty' and the room cracks up. Then he asked if we liked it better than him and everyone was like NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!, thankfully because really, it was... ew. XD
- At one point he started talking about Mardi Gras for some reason, but I haven't taken notes fully so idek what was it specifically about, but then he asked the girl where she was from. It more or less went like this.

Misha: where are you from?
Girl: Naples.
Misha: you got here how?
Girl: my dad drove me but he didn't stay, I'm sharing a room with my friend over there.
Misha: you knew her from before?
Girl: well, from the Internet.
Friend: but I swore her dad that I'd look out for her.
Misha: so, is he okay with that because it was the internet? Awesome!

Then he started asking at random if meeting up with people from the internet whom you hadn't seen before was a good experience and the girl said yes, and then he said 'what, in a percentage between 2% and 99%?' or something like that. I can't be sure that didn't have any hidden purpose, but from what I remember he blathered about the Internet and that for at least five minutes.
- Then he said this was an interesting format and that he liked it, then asked how far would the girl's dad driven her;
- At that point for some reason he started referencing queues at Asylum and said we had a great organization because he hadn't seen queues in order to queue, and I think it was when he said he was talking to Jensen that morning and they agreed we were the best crowd they got to see at a con;
- Someone asked him to explain his side of the underwear story and he said that it was just an innocent mistake on his part and that he has nothing to hide. Basically he confirmed that he spilled soup all over him (and according to wardrobe people he's the only person in the cast who ever managed it) and the wardrobe lady misplaced the underwear and put it in Richard's trailer, and that now those briefs keep on making him ashamed because they're up in production room;
- At that point Jim crashed the panel and Misha said he liked Jim's shirt (the one saying that Bobby hunts Italian girls) and they started auctioning. In total, there were two paintings which all the actors would sign and a copy of Jim's book in Italian which was going to be signed by him, and they were supposed to auction one painting and the book (the other one was supposed to get auctioned in the afternoon with Jensen & Jason but ended up getting auctioned by Misha during the closing ceremony; more on that later). The money would have gone to charity for this small city near L'Aquila named Civitaretenga which got seriously damaged during last year's earthquake. And here I'll say something that makes me feel ashamed, so premise: my father commutes to L'Aquila, he still works there even if they have to do university lessons in industrial warehouses, if I think about that earthquake I still want to cry and I perfectly know that this is a serious matter which should NOT be brought on squee level.

That doesn't mean that the way Misha said the name of the town didn't totally go and make my knees weak, mostly because he got it right on the first try. Sorry. Sorry, really. I know. I swear I won't joke about that. It's serious, it really is, and I'm actually really glad that they chose to give the money for that city. They need all the money they can get.

So anyway, Misha starts auctioning the painting and first he starts slow, then starts going faster and faster and pointing at people and shouting numbers and I swear that it was one of the most hilarious things ever. Everyone was cracking up. The presenter, after he sold the painting, said that he had a future as an auctioneer and it was pretty much the only thing he said in the whole weekend with which I agreed, lol. Then Misha passed on Jim's book saying that it was shiny because not still signed and then suddenly switched to serious and said that it really was good and that he had loved it himself and a lot of incredibly nice things (and Jim was sort of being at least a little touched there) and then he auctioned that too. Jim first signed it and read a bit of it in Italian with pretty decent accent too, then hugged the girl who bought it and who had gotten on stage. Then it was over. ;_;

PICTURES AGAIN! I'm not putting any where the girl from Naples is on stage because I don't put pictures of people online if I don't know they're okay with it though.

Also, the first is Misha starting to undo his pants. I know, SUCKS, but it's the closest I managed.

At that point, there was a Richard + Jason panel which I would have loved to see if only for crack value, but er. I had my ship photo op, meaning the Jensen/Misha one.

I swear I was completely and utterly freaked. Or well, not so much at the beginning, but while I was in line I was like 'omgomgomg I'M GOING TO GET SANDWICHED BETWEEN MY SHIP' and then when I got into the room... er. Slashiness to the umptenth.

Okay, explaining myself: someone had a picture with them and then said they paid for a second one, but they wanted just Jensen and Misha in that... doing the personal space thing. After the photographer clicked I turned to my left to galain7 (right? Queue friends! ;) ) and I was like 'did the slash-o-meter just explode?' and she was like 'OMG FUCK YES IT DID'. So anyway, the three people before me go, I go there in between them (wearing that signed Cas shirt lol) and they're both HI and looking at me at the same time. I think that I had a second when I didn't know where to look. It was sort of too much awesome at once. Anyway, I go and take the picture (I TOUCHED THEM BOTH AT THE SAME TIME I MEAN SERIOUSLY WHAT), they say hi again, I say hi again, I go out of the room where in one second I realized that a) I just had a picture with those two, b) my stomach was empty, c) the only thing I had ingested since the morning was a coffee at 6.50 AM and it was about 11.30. It brought a complete sugar loss, lol. I think I just completely dropped on a chair in front of the room which was supposed to be for a mini internet point since a computer was in front of it and outside there was nimloth87 (I got the name right? RIGHT? Because er, I know you and your DA name and your real name actually but we never exchange LJ names properly so I just hope I'm not saying crap here) who was like 'omg you did it! And by the way, you're blushing like nothing else' and thankfully she had chocolate because I was seriously needing some sugar. Next time I go to a con I'm freaking bringing PACKETS of sugar along. Anyway, I was like OMG I'M IN SHIPPER HEAVEN as soon as I had some chocolate so I guess it was all good. And then ecstaticagony and yawedzoro brought out some apple pie they had started to cook the evening before when me and _izu_ were there for dinner and I kind of stole two pieces, but those kept me up until 7 PM so all good. Actually it was the free food I was twittering about for whoever was following me, lol.

At that point I hanged out in the room where they gave out the ops (btw, timey_wimey_kid, it was awesome XD) and I stayed there until I got mine, then ran to Jensen's panel where, DUH, OF COURSE SOMEONE STOLE MY PLACE and even if I tried to get them to stand up some idiot in first row whom I'd have totally strangled was like 'SHUT THE HELL UP' and so I ended up sitting three rows behind my place. Don't make me say anything else on the subject. Anyway, since I had my hands full and the panel was halfway done, I'll just copy what I twittered and try to add if I can remember something, mostly because I couldn't physically take notes since I was trying to keep all my stuff with me in case I could move seats.

- While I got in, he was answering kros_21's question and said that S6 was the season he was most excited for because he's going into it blind and he doesn't know what to expect;
- If he met Dean, he'd ask him to let him drive the car, but Dean would probably punch him;
- He'd love to do a Lost crossover and hunt ghosts in Hawaii, at least he'd get to surf or something like that;
- He likes vampires (as monsters), but not 'that twilight stuff' or something like that, which earned him a LOOOOOOOT of clapping;
- A girl wanted to ask a question about 5x16 and half of the room was like NOOOOOOOOOOO because a lot of people hadn't seen the ep and they got spoiled enough in the previous two days, so he said that it was fine and he had a way to solve everything. He stands, goes down the stage to the girl, hears the questions, answers and gets back up. Clearly no one knew what it was but IT WAS SO FUCKING SWEET. <33333333333333333
- He got asked about his and Dean's music tastes (if they match) and he said that yes, they do because he loves classic rock and Zeppelin, but he likes country too because he was brought up in Texas after all;
- Someone asked him a superhero he'd love to play; first he joked about Capt. America but said that it wasn't happening, then someone suggested Captain Fantastic and he laughed but then he said he'd have rather played Batman;
- At THAT idk if I'm confusing it with the next panel he had (the one with Jason) but he def. got asked if he liked The Dark Knight and the new Batman franchise and he said he did even if he loves Michael Keaton;

And then it was done, sorry for the shortness. :/

Some pictures!

It's fun reading about your con experience. Glad it was so amazing!
the female ghost of tom joad: misha collins is awesomejanie_tangerine on April 8th, 2010 08:05 am (UTC)
Thanks so much! And indeed it was. <3
Lou: wingottalovev on April 7th, 2010 07:51 pm (UTC)

can I just repeat here that i am so envious of your con experience? and really really happy it happened to someone as awesome as you? ♥

Traci definitely became one of my top girl crush after Vancouver. I told her so, too, and she laughed, she's so gracious. ♥

and damnit, so much MISHA! how is he so awesome? I'm so happy you got to see so much of him. and guh, Jensen, how so pretty! how?

PS the link to part 2 doesn't work for me. boo! *makes puppy eyes*
the female ghost of tom joad: j2janie_tangerine on April 7th, 2010 08:03 pm (UTC)
About the link: it isn't supposed to work, I'm still working on that post. ;) I just didn't want to go and edit this one so for now that post is private, it should be up in half an hour if I manage to be quick with the last Jensen panel.

And THANK YOU!!! God, I'd be envious of myself if it wasn't kind of nonsense. ;) <33333333333333333333333

Traci IS SO ONE OF MY TOP CRUSHES TOO. SHE'S SO AWESOME I CAN'T EVEN. She totally questions my straightness.

HA, SO MUCH MISHA INDEED! When I realized he had a panel each day I was literally like --> \o/ \o/ \o/ \o/ \o/ \o/ ;) I couldn't have asked for better really. Jensen IS SO PRETTY INDEED!
Emilyhealingmachine on April 8th, 2010 10:16 am (UTC)
What was the thing about him holding a picture of a mom & baby? x
the female ghost of tom joadjanie_tangerine on April 8th, 2010 10:20 am (UTC)
You mean Misha? That's Jim's wife and child, they're on the cover of the Italian copy of the book which Misha auctioned. ;)
Emilyhealingmachine on April 8th, 2010 11:11 am (UTC)
Oh my god. Oh my fucking god. I did not know that. At all. *melts into the floor*
hell on wheelsgalain_7 on April 8th, 2010 11:39 am (UTC)
Jensen took my breathe away. And my crush on Traci is getting worse. And worse.
jaredsamjaredsam on April 8th, 2010 07:26 pm (UTC)
I see no pictures. I see Bandwidth Exceeded photobucket
the female ghost of tom joad: ARE YOU SERIOUS?janie_tangerine on April 8th, 2010 07:37 pm (UTC)
Yeah, I know. Sorry about that. This morning everything worked, then some GENIUS either hotlinked the pictures or my icons or something like that and the bandwidth got exceeded in the afternoon. It should be reset in five days if you want to check on the 13th, I'm so really sorry about it but it took me three days to write everything down and sort pictures and upload and stuff and the idea of re-doing it now makes me headdesk, especially when in five days they'll be visible again. ://////
Giulia: SPN_free wille0wyn on April 8th, 2010 07:37 pm (UTC)
Pure a me Traci ha impressionato tantissimo, è così sweet and lovely *wub* E poi il numero con il bongo è stato geniale, aveva la sala ai suoi piedi! Alla fine della sua performance ho dovuto urlarle "We love you", lei l'ha sentito e si è girata verso di me *Wuuub*

Il siparietto con Misha è stato esilarante, pure quello sono riuscita a riprendere :D

Hawaai ghost, I'm all for it! Ma i ragazzi dovrebbero cacciarlo ovviamente passando tutta la puntata in costume *___*
the female ghost of tom joad: supernatural -> generaljanie_tangerine on April 13th, 2010 07:45 am (UTC)
Pff scusa il ritardo, non mi era arrivata la notifica =_=

TRACI E' COSI' CARINA, MA COSI' CARINA *ama follemente* e il numero col bongo è stato fantastico sì *_____________*

LOL. APPROVO. Io ho fotografato ma OTTIMO CHE HAI RIPRESO, stasera riuscirà a vederti quel post per bene XD

LOL, IDEM! possibilmente SOLO il costume grazie XD

he asked her if she'd switch body with Sam or Dean. She said Sam so she could be next to Dean and he was like 'oh, sure. So, you'd switch bodies with Sam in order to make out with Dean. That's a totally acceptable answer' and the room went down laughing.

*dies laughing*

- He'd love to do a Lost crossover and hunt ghosts in Hawaii

:D Also: Batman. :D

I just want to draw hearts around this report and you and them and awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww.
the female ghost of tom joad: j2janie_tangerine on April 18th, 2010 10:25 pm (UTC)
I just love that he does that himself. I-just-do. Actually, I LOVE HIM. PERIOD. XD

And yes, Batman!! :D And I'd totally watch that crossover. Especially Castiel walking on the beach with the coat and all and Sawyer being like WHAT THE FUCK ARE YOU CRAZY YOU SHOULD BE DYING IN HEAT AND TAKING THAT SHIRT OFF JUST LIKE I DO.

Sorry. ;) ;)

And thaaaank you!!!!!!!! <3333333333333333333333333333
