To top this off I watched "Home" the other day, and I'd gotten tears in my eyes. Out of all the SPN episodes this is the one that does it for me. I honestly can't explain why, since they've had emotional moments before that make me go "OH BOYS!" and reach through the screen and hug them. But this was a classic S1 episode that really brought all those moments together later on.
I've also been thinking about having a marathon of Carnivale after I'm done with SPN rewatching. Since I have both seasons now (yay!) it'll be awesome.
Nothing else to report on that front. I'll be having theories for my fandoms soon. I know I've said that before but it's taking longer than I expected, between RL and everything else I've been so preoccupied. That I have to get them organized, since I know what I want to say it's a matter of writing them down into coherent sentences. But they're coming.
