Dean/Castiel rec + my own thoughts on the latest wankcraze.  
Me and Mine by AlreadyPainfullyGone
Castiel is a gay priest and devoted to repressing himself, until he meets seventeen-year-old Dean who needs help in denying his own sexuality. Inconvenient though it is, they fall in love and move from denial to platonic love to something more complex.

I just found this story today and I instantly loved it. Of course, I love anything dealing with the concept of priest!Castiel, and of course with the controversy and issues regarding questioning of sexuality, and just like with the Voice of the Turtledove this one also handles it wonderfully. There's emotion and pain and angst, so much beautiful angst. My only complaint is that I wish the ending had more elaboration, it felt too abrupt and rushed after all that happened. But overall, it's a touching and moving story.

---

Regarding the recent controversy that stirred up fandom (for those who don't know, it's this piece of bullshit), I think it's fair to say that such a thing is incredibly appalling and those who are behind it, whether they are serious or not, are absolutely pathetic and totally disgusting on the lowest of levels I can't even. This isn't something to be trolling around with, the organizers have been notified as well as the security for the cast and it is going to be dealt with accordingly. It is rather unbelievable something like this even came up in the first place. But fandom, being the awesome people that they are, took action against it and notified authorities of this threat and hopefully nothing will come out of it. If anything does, karma will be a bitch and severely bite them on the ass.

I wonder just how many people emailed/called them. Because I emailed them minutes after seeing it and they had already been informed. This fandom can be overwhelming sometimes, but more often than not it's overwhelming in a good way. Something like this leaks and there are dozens, if not hundreds of people jumping into action. Hell, look at Random Acts.

Do not underestimate fangirl power.

I know. It's amazing. I mean I just heard about this clusterfuck and then like not too long after discovering it I heard that the convention people and Cliff have been notified and will be dealing with everything. It feels awesome being part of an actively participant fandom that can use our powers for good. Especially when it's protecting the actors we all love and respect. :D

WOT WOT? CONTROVERSY IN FANDOM? HOW FASCINATING...COME CLOSER AND TELL ME MOAR BECAUSE THE PIC IN THAT LINK IS GONE.

IS THE LINK NOT WORKING FOR YOU BB? D:
Beckybeckytheelf on June 2nd, 2011 01:50 am (UTC)
Telling me it no longer exists :(
Angel Kinkangel_kink on June 2nd, 2011 01:51 am (UTC)
link works for me. weird.
Renée: Misha. O_Orogueslayer452 on June 2nd, 2011 01:54 am (UTC)
Huh. How odd, it still works for me. O_o

But anyway....some asshat make a little "operation mission" for people to "Kill God", by means of joining together to intentionally humiliate Misha Collins at NashCon this upcoming weekend. Like throwing water bottles at him, tripping him, booing him, throwing other kinds of shit on him, because they think that shit is funny or whatever. Basically, it's downright malicious bullshit that, joke or not, is actually a threatening kind of thing to publicize and that shit just AIN'T FUCKING COOL. LIKE AT ALL. IDC HOW "FUNNY" SOMEONE THINKS THIS IS, THIS IS LIKE BORDERLINING ON ASSAULT YOU JERKOFFS.

Really, it's a deliberate means of being rude and mean just for shits and giggles. >:\

FOR FUCK'S SAKE SOME PEOPLE IN THIS FANDOM. I'M ALREADY DONE WITH THE SHOW, NOW TO BE DONE WITH THIS STUPID FANDOM TOO?
BUT LMFAO AT THE SAME TIME I HAVE FAITH: BECAUSE HONESTLY, SOME OF THE MISHA FOLLOWERS ARE EVEN MORE BATSHIT (in a good way girls plz don't kill me kthxbai) THAN THOSE PEOPLE SO WHEN THEY FIND OUT, WEAVES WILL MOST LIKELY BE PULLED. THAT IS ALL.
Also thankies for the new link, boo. This one works...perhaps imgur is blocked in my country? IDK.
Renée: Castiel. Show some respect.rogueslayer452 on June 2nd, 2011 02:05 am (UTC)
TBH, I DON'T THINK WHOEVER DID THIS IS EVEN PART OF FANDOM. THEY DON'T SOUND LIKE A TRUE FAN, FROM HOW THEY DESCRIBED THE FANGIRLS AND FANDOM IN GENERAL -- REGARDLESS OF THE BITCHFIGHTING THAT MAY HAPPEN FROM TIME TO TIME, NOBODY WOULD EVEN CONSIDER BEING THIS MALICIOUS FOR SHITS AND GIGGLES, ESPECIALLY IN A DELIBERATE FASHION SUCH AS THIS. FANDOM CARES ABOUT THESE ACTORS FAARRRR TOO MUCH TO ALLOW SOMETHING LIKE THIS TO HAPPEN. FOR REAL THOUGH.

OH BELIEVE ME BB, ONCE THIS WAS SPREAD AMONGST THE FANDOM THE FANGIRLS WENT DIRECTLY TO THE AUTHORITIES AND SHIT IS BEING TAKEN CARE OF. FANDOM CAN BE MIRACULOUSLY AWESOME WHEN WE WANNA BE. WORKING TOGETHER, BUSTING SOME BITCHES. IT'S ALL GOOD. :)

Yeah, I'm thinking Imgur might be only functional in certain places of the world. Which sucks, but at least you finally saw the graphic in it's total fucked up glory. Heh.

Here's a TinyPic link of the graphic. Hoping this one works for ya, bb.

Ugh, what the fuck is wrong with people, seriously. And like not only that but there's this fake article thing about Misha getting into a car accident or something idek, but srsly.

WHAT THE FUCK IS WRONG WITH PEOPLE.

Unrelated: OMG, HOW CRAZY IS THE WEATHER TODAY!?!!
Renée: Misha. Are you fucking serious?rogueslayer452 on June 2nd, 2011 02:45 am (UTC)
THERE ARE SOME SERIOUSLY FUCKED UP CRAYCRAYS OUT THERE IN FANDOM. I CAN'T EVEN.

I didn't know about that fake report though. Seriously, what is up with these things about hating on Misha? I don't get it. I honestly don't get it. Are people so bored (hiatus boredom?) they have to make up this shit just for attention?

AND OMG YES SRSLY, THE WEATHER IS JUST SO WONKY TODAY! I WAS LIKE, IT'S RAINING, BUT WAIT NOW IT'S NOT, BUT THEY SAID IT'S THUNDERING, BUT IT'S ALL BLUE SKIES -- WTF?!?!! IT'S JUNE, MOTHER NATURE! START ACTING LIKE IT!
kaiyotekaiyote on June 2nd, 2011 02:51 am (UTC)
IKR. AND EVEN IF THE THING WASN'T CREATED BY SOMEONE IN FANDOM... I LIKE DEFINITELY KNOW OF PEOPLE WHO PROBABLY THINK THE IDEA IS A GOOD ONE. :|

Yeah, I think the fake report thing is just floating around tumblr right now? IDK. It's where I saw it first and it's like the only place I've seen it yet... idk but either way it's totally not cool. I seriously don't get what goes through peoples heads when they think of shit like that. o_O

DUDE, IT WAS JUST FUCKING HAILING HERE LIKE 5 MINS AGO! WTF ARE YOU DOING, MOTHER NATURE!? GET YO SHIT TOGETHER.
Filomena: *omg 2nd hand embarrrrrrrrrrasssssed*aubade_saudade on June 2nd, 2011 03:10 am (UTC)
idk if i'm being naive as fuck but i don't believe anything will come of it. fandom may seem like a minefield sometimes, but when fandom unites it's for good, not evil.
Renée: Babydoll. Fighter.rogueslayer452 on June 2nd, 2011 04:02 am (UTC)
There are the rotten apples in fandom, some which create the batshittiness of crazy ever. However, the majority outweigh those handful of assholes who think of this kind of shit, and yeah, I highly doubt anything will come of this because honestly? Such a thing is a cowardly thing to do. They know they cannot do anything remotely like this without getting thrown out and embarrassing themselves in the process.
Encyclopædia Clevernamethefreshchuff on June 2nd, 2011 03:16 am (UTC)
WTF IS WRONG WITH PEOPLE. Immature pieces of shit. I hope nothing does come of it, because that's so rude and needlessly mean. Some people are so, so stupid.
Renée: Misha. !!!!!rogueslayer452 on June 2nd, 2011 04:04 am (UTC)
I don't think anything will. This is something thought out to be "funny", however it's only proving their cowardice and insensitivity and, based on the reactions and notifications, I think the protectiveness of fandom has or will scare them away from this entirely.

(and if this was just a cruel joke to troll fandom? It still was a cowardly thing to do -- cowardly and pathetic)

I know. This sort of reminds me of the Korean anti-fans who would deliberately try to hurt or sabotage a certain known celebrity out of mere hatred and/or jealousy. It's disgusting and it makes me think about what really goes on in these people's heads when they think of something like this, deliberately planning on harassing and hurting someone else. D:
Kevin Jonesmulder200 on June 2nd, 2011 06:08 am (UTC)
Oh! I join in you love of Priest Castiel!

And Wow! Joke or not, some people are serious assholes! I'm glad to hear that fandom and Con people are responding accordingly.
Renée: Castiel. Guardian angel.rogueslayer452 on June 2nd, 2011 12:43 pm (UTC)
I'm genuinely amazed at the level of awesome fandom can be when they hear something like this. We may have our differences but when something like this occurs, we band together.
Revyallodole on June 2nd, 2011 06:33 am (UTC)
Putting that fic on my to-be-read-list. I always need my fix of priest!Cas.

Also.. that thing.. I'm insulted that some people think it was someone in the fandom. Seriously? We're not that pathetic and the majority of us love Misha. Besides, that thing came from 4chan, the major nest of sad, pathetic trolls.
Renée: Misha. Whut?rogueslayer452 on June 2nd, 2011 12:29 pm (UTC)
Yeah, I had my doubts that whoever did this was actually a true fan, because while there are definite levels of crazy amongst this fandom (sometimes even on an epic scale of embarrassing) I don't think anyone would deliberately attempt to be this malicious and petty. It makes sense that it was from 4chan, anyway. Those people thrive on being assholes on a daily basis.

I hope that it's a tasteless and stupid joke and it's not someone from the fandom. We already get enough of the crazy. It doesn't sound like someone from the fandom, though. Also, don't these people have better things to do in life than to make this type of shit up for giggles?
Renée: Misha. O_Orogueslayer452 on June 3rd, 2011 03:42 am (UTC)
Apparently it was from 4chan, so definitely not someone from fandom.

Yeah, it's rather ridiculous and sad thinking that there are people who deliberately want to attack and harass others for the "just because" factor. It makes me think of anti-fans, and those people on that craycray level just boggles my mind even further. O_o
