vampire porn 3x16 '1912' / spn 7x16 'out with the old'  
Er, I totes skipped fifteen for both but I was having exams and I didn't have time.


RIIIIIIIIC ;_______________________________________;

seriously please fix him okay I caaan't ;____; (though I do like going mad storylines, so I'm willing to go with it. Just - POOR GUY SUFFERED SO MUCH ALREADYYY)

2. 1912!Damon, can I hug you and feed you cupcakes? ;__; I had figured that at some point he had to have become a psycho, but.

3. STEFAN AND DAMON ALL THE FEELINGS OMG I love that Damon is comfortable enough with telling Stefan clearly that he cares about him. YES. That bit when he told him that he didn't want to watch while he went off the rails again was - aaaah ;__; seriously, those two. And Stefan actually accepting it oh my god I died. That was the best part of this entire thing.

4. Also I'm delighted that Matt is DOING SOMETHING. Him and Elena breaking and entering were just too awesome for words. And er, are they getting back together? It's probably be the best for her anyway, but it's not like it's gonna happen. That said, Matt Donovan = awesome human being and I'm just really happy that he has a storyline again.

5. Elena, please keep on being awesome. Takes some good level of self-awareness to say that she had wanted to be with Stefan for the reasons she said. Really, idk why she gets so much hate around. She's great. And for an eighteen year old, she isn't stupid at all. Thanks for small fucking favors.

7. Rebeckah and Damon reading Stefan's diary were just too deliciously lol to be real.

8. I kinda liked the entire let's solve a murder thing going on. It was so nicely done. And it was nice to see people actually collaborating on that.

9. Uhm, that said if the Gilbert rings make people go crazy someone should go check on Jeremy...


11. Okay, Meredith, giving you the benefit of the doubt until now. That said I still can't forget that she's Paul Wesley's RL wife. It's all kinds of awkward.

12. Next week's promo was like O______________O SOMEONE HOLD MEEE.

Also seriously that mindfuck with Ric at the end had to be the worst I got since Lost was over. SHOW WHAT ARE YOU DOING. (but never stop being awesome)


1. ... I'll never be able to listen to Swan Lake again. THANKS, SHOW. I suppose I have to be grateful that ballet isn't much of my thing in the first place, but really. That was. UGH.

2. Not that the enchanted teapot wasn't any better. I don't know what's wrong with me and my stomach disliking the gore so much this round, but I'll blame it on the Sopranos marathons. I already get enough blood in there probably.

I need to go watch some fluffy shows when I'm done with S3...

3. ... pity that we never saw Dean with the ballet shoes. Or maybe not.

4. That little girl who put the shoes on gets the prize for Most Idiotic Thing Anyone Has Done In A Whole Lot Of Episodes.

5. So waaait, the antiquary guy's mom owned the cursed objects and had them locked in the safe but she wasn't the one who cursed them, yes?

6. The woman leviathan this round was... especially irksome. Ugh.

7. The other leviathan wanting out was a nice twist at least. Though wait, they left him alive? Or not? I'm not sure if it was stated.

8. I see that Sam found some usefulness to Dean's kind of music? Though seriously, SAM ;___; I seriously was about to scream when the truck almost hit him. (Though really, Sam, you drive while being sleep-deprived?)

9. Hmmm so Frank is dead? Pity, I kinda liked him. Though since there's no body (for now) obviously it's going to bite everyone back at some point.

10. Dick really looks too much like the poor man's Christian Bale. I'll never be able to take him seriously.

11. But it's good that Dean is keeping on with the herbal tea route. No alcohol, Dean, NO. ALCOHOL.

12. Overall, good episode, but the level of gore was making me want to throw up in my mouth. Which is ridiculous because it wasn't worse than any Ben Edlund given episode, but I just couldn't stomach it. I guess that when I'm done with the Sopranos the universe will right itself and I just won't mind as usual.

Also, after the long white space there's rambling about next episode's promo. If you want to stay unspoiled just go directly to comments. ;)

a) Random thought: why do all the previews this year suck major ass? I'm not talking about this one specifically, but ugh. All the ones I've seen were totally misleading, didn't give you an idea of what happened in the episode itself and the dialogue is always distorted and squished or something. I had to read a transcript for this one because I didn't understand zilch except for the last sentence, my brother and bad guy. :////

b) that said: OMG OMG OMG CAS'S FACE BABY COME HERE I MISSED YOUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU <3333333333333333333333333333333333333333333 I can't. That show, THAT SHOT ;_____;

c) Meg's face: I hadn't missed you at all. Can I hope that she's there for like five minutes and then goes away so very soon? Sorry but never liked her, never will and I'm still more or less baffled that out of all the good female characters they have she's the only one that keeps on sticking around even if she hasn't had any real use since S2. My very humble opinion, but she outlived her usefulness ages ago.

d) SAAAM OMG ;__________; (please tell me that Cas heals him. Well, I guess it's the point, since he'd be fixing the major fuck-up in that entire Cas-goes-crazy thing).


And if I can give my very humble opinion on that one too, I've seen around raging at it because it'd be kinda hypocritical and it's not like Dean did anything to find Cas if he thought that he was still alive, but if I can weigh in... I don't really think it's hypocritical and how was Dean going to search for him if as far as he knew the guy exploded in the bottom of a lake? He had no reason whatsoever to think that Cas was alive, and saying that a part of him believed that Cas would come back doesn't imply that he really thought it'd come true. We're talking Dean Winchester here, it wouldn't be the first time he got delusional. Also if it had to do with the fact that Cas has resurrected enough times until now maybe he could have genuinely thought it in the sense that someone would bring him back from the dead (not that he'd come back because he never died that third time at all), and it's the kind of thing that Dean would just bury down and cover with compulsive drinking because he wouldn't really acknowledge it when he knows that it'd probably just give him more angst on top of everything else. (I hope that it made sense? Gosh, this morning I'm pretty bad at articulating things.) And even if it was hypocritical (which I don't really think, in this case)... well, it wouldn't be the first time. It's one of Dean's major faults but it has been for a fucking log time already (anyone remembers when he wanted Gabriel to kill Lucifer and asked it as if it was a thing akin to drinking a glass of water and Gabriel went like 'dude, what would you say if someone told you to kill YOUR brother?', or the entire working for/with Crowley thing - they did it but Cas can't?). I <3 him but if we're talking faults, it's not anything new under the sun. Not to mention that in the Cas situation he has been a dick, but he doesn't even know everything that -we- know either imo it was a 50/50 thing (ie Dean was a dick and he should have listened to Cas in 6x21 mostly - I'm cutting him slack for 6x20 because he did say that he would have forgotten it if Cas let go of the plan with Crowley, and I think he meant that - and he generally hadn't been that nice to Cas all along, but Cas COULD have asked him for help at some point before it was too late and Dean had thought that Cas betrayed them all. It all boils down to PEOPLE LEARN TO TALK ABOUT YOUR FEELINGS, but this has gotten long enough). I just can't see it as Dean being a jerk.


e) ... that entire point was a novel and it wasn't even well-structured. Sorry. But.. I kinda really want to be happy about this. That episode looks actually good (except for Meg but eee we can't have anything and someone does like her, probably the majority, so as long as she and Cas don't do a Caged Heat 2.0 I can live with it), my favorite character is back and maybe from what I gather they won't fuck it up too much, I might get a fix for that crappy exit in 7x02, it seems like Dean might see reason about that entire clusterfuck and he admitted that on a certain level he missed Cas, which I don't really think isn't genuine since it's not really OOC for Dean to do that and... I want to squee, not to dissect it to find all the negative. I just want to see the glass half-full and if they end up fucking it up I'll get angry then. But at the moment I'll just be here flailing, even if with a less horrible promo I'd have flailed a lot more.

This was longer than the actual week's episode review I fear. Lol. Cas, never leave me again, you make me want to ramble. ;)

Okay that was it. Back on answering comments & reposting comment fic - sorry in advance for the new round of spamming you're getting today.

I had to play that promo 3 or 4 times to decipher all the dialogue myself! I agree, they're doing some shitty promos this series - that choppy editing and distortion on the dialogue is just, ugh, I don't know what purpose it's supposed to be filling. Is someone trying to be "edgy"? *side-eyes*

Still. Better they get that sort of thing out of their system on the promos than on the actual eps, I guess. :)

Lol I played it four times and then I gave up and searched for a transcript. But it's reassuring that people whose main language is English don't understand it at the first round either. ;) Meh, I don't know what they're trying to do this year but I can't remember one promo that actually gave a hint of what happened in the episode/wasn't misleading in the end.

But yeah, totally with you on that... ;)
DR Lisa!!dazedrose on March 17th, 2012 12:55 pm (UTC)
I'm swimming in the pool of tears of joy cos CAS IS BACK!!!! I'm still shocked over the fact that I'm pretty sure Sera wrote 7.17 and then most likely the 'part of me...' line. I'm not sure how to take that. </p>

But I think we are all able to be blissfully ignorant of all the wank that has cone from this promo.... Because our favourite boy is back!!!!

the female ghost of tom joad: supernatural castiel 3.0janie_tangerine on March 17th, 2012 12:58 pm (UTC)
I KNOW? *swims in happy tears too* and lol well I'm trying not to mind the Sera thing too much - I hadn't entirely disliked Let it Bleed so errr benefit of the doubt? And I didn't really mind that line either - I don't think it's OOC or that it's not genuine, but considering how much context they gave us... *eyes badly whoever made that preview*

THAT. I just - I WANT TO BE HAPPY about this. We can wank later if it ends up being bad, but I don't really feel like being negative about it.

Oh, but you MUST watch TVD 3.15. ELIIIIIIIJAH......

Oh I DID watch it! I just didn't have time/means to write the review, but I did like it XDD
The Disreputable Writerwallmakerrelict on March 17th, 2012 06:14 pm (UTC)
I actually like Meg but ONLY because she's an irredeemable nasty piece of work. If the Winchesters aren't trying to kill her on sight, something is terribly wrong. And that she's there when Dean finally sees Cas again... That worries me A LOT.

But I'm trying to stay positive because no matter what, we get three episodes of Cas and they're hinting that he'll be back for next season (if there is a next season). STAY POSITIVE.
the female ghost of tom joad: supernatural castiel 3.0janie_tangerine on March 17th, 2012 06:23 pm (UTC)
My problem with Meg is that the first actress looked like a friend of mine and just seeing her face made me feel crept out, but I actually liked her when she was the S1 villain. In S2 she was cool too but from then on I just found her redundant. :/ (it might also be that she's the only female character that's been around since S1 and hasn't bitten it while all my favorite girls died *cough* ;) ) And yeah, I just don't like the idea of her around Cas. I can see Dean not doing it if she's bringing him to someone that can fix Sam because hey, last resorts, but there totally isn't the need for a Caged Heat part two... *sigh*

Same here! I know he's back for another two eps at least, if he's back in S8 then he isn't going to die horribly and I just don't want to be negative about this. If it sucks I'll worry later. ;)
The Cleaveragekel_reiley on March 17th, 2012 06:29 pm (UTC)
This felt like such a "filler" episode. I mean, sure it progressed a few things and answered/asked some new questions, but it didn't really do anything as its own episode, y'know? The cursed objects were really sidelined for the other stuff. So far, it's going in the 'one of the worst eps of the season' pile for me :(

But next week... NEXT WEEK! EEE!
the female ghost of tom joad: supernatural dean sam genjanie_tangerine on March 17th, 2012 06:39 pm (UTC)
Well the most effect it had on me was making me want to throw up XD though I don't know if I'd file it as bad, but if the worst episode of the season was the Sam-marries-Becky one and I hold up to that standard, then this one was a honest filler that could have been better but did its job. I think that other one permanently scarred me though...

The Cleaveragekel_reiley on March 17th, 2012 07:10 pm (UTC)
oh god, the becky ep was DEFINITELY the absolute worst :(
this one was more an 'eh, wouldn't rewatch it' kind of episode

OUR SHIP, BB. SHE SAILS. DID YOU SEE THE TRENCH COAT? DEAN WAS TOTALLY CLUTCHING THE TRENCH COAT AND HIS FACE, OH MY GOD. The "part of me always believed you come back" line? ajdkvjahgkjsadljf, just shoot me. Oh god, stupid fucking boys. Please learn to talk about your feelings while you have the chance.

CAS, MY LOVE. NEVER LEAVE ME AGAIN. *ignores the fact that he most likely will*

Your Meg feelings = my Meg feelings, but you probably already knew that. I feel like I should feel something toward her as she's both the longest surviving female character and the longest surviving non-Winchester, but I just. The only thing I feel is a bit of disgust at her characterization ("Keep talking dirty. It gets my meat suit all dewy." Please. Fucking. Stop.) and bitterness that, while Bela, Ruby, Ellen, Jo, Eve, Anna, Rachel, Gwen, Pamela, and literally every other female character I love died with plenty of potential to spare, Meg just keeps coming back long after she's outlived her usefulness. I really liked her as a villain in S1, but I think should have seen the last of her when they exorcised her. Seriously.
the female ghost of tom joad: supernatural dean/castiel 4.0janie_tangerine on March 18th, 2012 02:00 pm (UTC)
YOUR LAST PARAGRAPH = CO-SIGNED. She was great in S1, and the S2 ep was good (but that was Jared acting so whatever, it wasn't the same thing), but UGH I DON'T GET why out of ALL the women in this show she's the one that has managed not to die until now when her usefulness was over ages ago. I can't just wrap my head around it. WHY HER OUT OF EVERYONE WHY. And I just hope that there isn't any Caged Heat 2.0 going on because just NO, okay. X__X

I've been waiting for this episode all season, so if it turns into Caged Heat: the Sequel, I will fucking fly to Vancouver and punch everyone involved with this show.


Seriously, this episode is going to kill me. Dean's face is going to kill me -- Jensen Ackles, fuck you very much, this is all your fault. Clearly the coat hasn't just been knocking around in the trunk, yes? I feel like he packed it neatly in his duffel bag and carried it with him everywhere. And pulled it out when Sam wasn't around to just look at it and touch it and just. GAY. :D

I HAVEN'T SEEN IT BECAUSE I DECIDED THAT I'M GONNA STAY UNSPOILED but I sorta pretty much knew about the amnesia and AAAH FAVORITE TROPE COME TO LIFE I CAN'T. (Not to mention that I wrote/read that fic, but whatever XD)

That said YES PLEASE TALK ABOUT YOUR STUPID FEELINGS OKAY. I can't take this. I'll need someone to pick me up with a spoon.
