Day 23: "Oy vey..."  
Day 23 - Most annoying character

There are plenty of characters that I find annoying in almost all my fandoms, so it really depends. There are certain characters that are annoying mostly due to how a particular actor portrays them, or how they're written, sometimes even both. Sometimes it's not even a character I dislike, it can just be the direction the writers chose for a season or storyline or whatever. And honestly, it would take forever to really list the names of characters that I found the most annoying in all these fandoms that I have, so I'll just leave it at this because it could turn into a huge ranting post if I did. Besides, if you know me and are familiar with my opinions on certain fandoms, I'm sure y'all know which characters I find irritating and annoying, so I really don't need to get into that today. *g*

Masterlist of days here.

Okay, everyone knows that I don't do spoilers unless my curiosity gets the better of me and I seek them out myself. Well, there's been one particular spoiler that I couldn't avoid.

From SFX issue #198: "There's also been talk in the writers' room about how to bring The Trickster (Archangel Gabriel) back."
THEY'RE THINKING ABOUT BRINGING MY BB GABRIEL BACK! :D :D :D



Lord have mercy, I just about cried right when I read this. Seriously, if there was any character death on Supernatural I was the most upset about it was Gabriel's, for sure. I mean, I guess they read about how outraged most of fandom was based on the petition of saving Gabriel was put up the moment after that episode aired, and now they're in the works of actually fulfilling it. Which I'm very sure it was fandom's influence because our voices do count in certain ways.

I just hope if and when this occurs they better fucking use his character with everything they've got, because just to bring him back for a flimsy little thing is not gonna cut it. Gabriel is a fantastic character portrayed by a very talented actor, and this better not be one of those "bring them back only to use them minimally and then kill them off (again)" spiel that this show is very famous for doing now. THEY HAVE ALREADY FUCKED WITH MY EMOTIONS ENOUGH WITH FAKING OUT HIS DEATH AND THEN DOING IT FOR REAL, AND NOW THIS NEWS. IT BETTER BE FOR PERMANENT OR ELSE I AM CUTTING SOME BITCHES. Either way though, I know that Richard Speight Jr. will be absolutely thrilled once learning they're planning on this, because he's been just a sweetheart. Only four episodes of the whole series, but his gratefulness towards the fans have been so overwhelming that I'm sure he'll be just as overjoyed as we are when they finalize this.

My theories on bringing Gabriel back is quite simple: God brings Gabriel back because he was faithful to the cause. I mean, come on. Castiel was resurrected twice now and mostly it was in protection of the Winchesters. Gabriel did the same thing, coming through in the end, even if it was a suicide mission, but he put others first before himself and faced up to Lucifer. He deserves at least a reward for that, it just makes perfect sense. And my wish is that Gabriel and Castiel have more screentime together, brotherly bonding, perhaps traveling alongside the Winchesters. Or even their own little mission! Wishful thinking I know, because since when does the show focus on any other character, supporting or otherwise, that isn't the Winchester brothers? But you never know.

I know I shouldn't get my hopes up, but dammit this is GABRIEL! And I love Richard and this just, yeah. It makes me happy.


Other than that, I've been rewatching the first season Dark Angel, because it's been forever since I've watched it and I suddenly had an itching to view it again. I think it's interesting how many people now have started watching it from the second season rather than the first all because of Jensen Ackles. Which yeah, he was great in it, but I prefer the first season much better since I think it flowed more smoothly, mythology-wise. The second season introduced many new elements that were hardly finished, and it leaves me wondering had they not been canceled would those mysteries be resolved? I think the first season was simple enough that it had a mythology element that wasn't too complicated, but it was just right to keep you intrigued in what was going on. Also, as a personal observation, Jessica Alba seemed happier and healthier during the first season.

That's just my own take on it, anyway. Love the show as a whole, but the first season really remains my favorite due to that.

THIS MADE MY DAY YESTERDAY.

I think it makes the most sense for God to bring Gabriel back. Much as I would have loved for his death to be a fake (mainly because I thought Gabriel's plan was DUMB and I would have loved for him to be doing something trickier), it was a pretty dead looking death. So I think God bringing him back is the way to go. There was a fanfic that summed it up nicely with Gabriel saying, "Apparently helping you two is a get out of death free card." See? Simple!

They should bring him back to do something awesome. At any rate, I don't think they'll bring him back to kill him. Because...that's what made everyone rage to begin with. But even a few minutes of Gabriel is awesome. He was barely in Mystery Spot, really. But the most important thing is that he would be OUT THERE AGAIN. Even if he only came back for an episode, we have the knowledge that he COULD turn up at any time in that universe. Maybe Castiel can go to him for advice on reordering Heaven, and Gabriel could keep saying no, don't you realize there's a reason I left? Or Gabriel could try to do something to Cas, and it wouldn't work, and Cas could be like, yeah, I'm an archangel now, too, so stop it.

You know what scenario I would LOVE? If God had brought Gabriel back at some point, and Gabe, deciding that he's already died once for this, or maybe God tells him the rest will play out by itself, doesn't let anyone know he's alive. Skip to S6, and the boys are hunting a weird case. They decide it's probably a trickster. Only to find out that it's THE Trickster. It's hard to break old habits, and he still is the angel of justice, after all. (I would say Gabriel should show up and save the boys, but we already got that in 5.19.)

Exactly. It doesn't have to be incredibly complicated of an explanation, just have God bring him back and then it's all good.

But even a few minutes of Gabriel is awesome. He was barely in Mystery Spot, really. But the most important thing is that he would be OUT THERE AGAIN. Even if he only came back for an episode, we have the knowledge that he COULD turn up at any time in that universe.

That's my feeling too, just that knowledge that Gabriel still exists and is out there is enough to put calm in my mind. Although I think it would be awesome if he did have a multi-episodic arc because bringing him back in whatever fashion they do they have to use Richard for a great amount of it, given the uproar his death gave they have to use his character development more than just one episode. You know?

LOL! That would be classic to his character return, for sure! ;D

There are many possible scenarios that this could work, the most popular (and definitely the more plausible version in my eyes) is God bringing Gabriel back because it makes the most sense, given God's treatment to Castiel the two dies he'd died and returned. I just don't want them to back out on this possible decision because now that the cat is out of the bag, fans will be anticipating what they're going to be doing.

I'm just happy there's actual talk about it, hopefully this will come to pass! *crosses fingers*

What if they do decide to bring Gabriel back, but then what if Richard thinks it would be a disservice to the character or something and doesn't want to do it?

I think he'd be all for it to be honest, considering his mass appreciation for the role since his first appearance on the show. He's mentioned it multiple times how grateful he is for, even a minor character, the love he's gotten esp in this last season. So I'd think he'd be all over returning, no doubt. It only depends on how they manage on bringing him back and for what.
