SUPERNATURAL

My favourite character: Castiel

My least favourite character: The Campbells

Most attractive character: Castiel, Ruby 1.0

Funniest character: Castiel, unintentionally so with his lack of knowledge of pop culture references and social awkwardness in modern social society

A character I would kill off/remove: Considering that all characters have already died on the show, it would be quite redundant.

A character I would bring back: Many. The women who have appeared on the show and were senselessly killed off or discarded, for one thing. Also, I heard that they're bringing back certain characters in the new season, but unsurprisingly, none of them are ladies. That is a whole different issue with the show in itself.

5 ships I like: Dean/Castiel, Sam/Jessica, John/Mary

A random thought: This show is still going on?

An unpopular opinion: Oh believe me I had many, much of which I have previously voiced on my journal in the past. I no longer watch so it's no longer a problem or concern for me anymore.

My canon OTP: John/Mary and Sam/Jessica

Non-canon OTP: Dean/Castiel

Most badass character: Castiel, the angels, Ruby 1.0

Pairing I am not a fan of: Sam/Dean

Character I feel the writers screwed up (in one way or another): lol, want a list? Nearly every single character on this show has been mistreated and screwed up by the writers many, many times. It's one of the reasons why I stopped watching in the first place.

Favourite friendship: Dean and Castiel, also from what I heard/seen Dean and Benny seemed to have had a great buddy friendship.

Favourite thing about the canon universe: Before most of it got retconned and messed with, I really enjoyed the mythology and lore associated with the angels which tied into what was happening, particularly the goings on upstairs in Heaven. I also liked how it connected with what occurred in previous seasons. If only they had kept with it instead of screwing it all up so none of it makes sense anymore.
philstar22: Supernatural: Jo and Ellenphilstar22 on September 24th, 2013 05:56 pm (UTC)
I haven't watched in a while either. I need to go back and watch the earlier stuff that was actually good so I remember why I liked the show. Mostly right now I read fics and pretend they are canon.

I agree that the angel mythology was really interesting. I hate that they messed with it.

And agreed x1000 on the women. Ugh.

DEAN/CASTIEL (SUPERNATURAL)

When or if I started shipping it: Definitely was on the bandwagon around 4.07, with the infamous bench scene. That's when I kind of fell hard for them.

My thoughts: Dean/Castiel were the first long-lasting OTP I had in a long, long time, and even after moving on from the fandom it still lingers there.

What makes me happy about them: It wasn't immediate, but a slow-build of their trust and friendship over the course of the seasons, the fourth and fifth seasons in particular really showed that development. They bonded and befriended each other during a time when they both needed a friend the most. They have influenced each other in their ways of belief and living and understanding things around them that they wouldn't have considered before; they have learned from one another and are quite similar in many ways. There is a fundamental depth between them that is hard to break, and their chemistry goes deeper than just a simple friendship.

What makes me sad about them: Any happiness they have is fleeting at best, because there's always an obstacle between them it seems nowadays that brings on more angst.

My favourite scene with them: There are many, but I have to go back to that infamous bench scene. It's the first time they actually talk about things without it being strictly for business. They were comfortable with each other's company, so much that Castiel opens up about his uncertainty and doubt about things happening upstairs, and moreover Dean actually listen to him. It's just a nice, lovely scene between them that says a lot about where they were with each other at that time. Another scene that I really loved was 4.22 when Dean confronts Castiel in the angel holding room, which has Cas make his final decision on rebelling Heaven and helping Dean, thus helping humanity.

My least favourite scene with them: Most of the scenes from the sixth season.

The biggest challenge to their relationship: So many obstacles. With Cas it seems like he has to constantly try to choose between Heaven and being with Dean, which is unfair because why can't he have both? He can still remain part of the Heaven family while looking out for the Winchesters. But apparently those two things are mutually exclusive in this universe. Both of them have trouble communicating with each other.

Things done in fanfic that annoys me: When people turn Castiel into some helpless, clueless child who doesn't know how to operate anything in our modern world and constantly needs help with things (i.e. putting on clothes, how to use the shower, doesn't understand sex, etc.) That irritates the fuck out of me.

Things I look for in fanfic: I love me some protective!Castiel, which is basically just BAMF!Cas over his human charge. I love it when Dean is questioning either his own sexuality or his attraction towards Cas who happens to be an angel and what that means, etc. Bonus points if there's Castiel not really understanding the big deal concerning gender. I also have a thing for wing kinks, also sex pollen fics. I also love me some good AUs.

Who I’d be comfortable them ending up with, if not each other: I also thought that, had she survived, Dean and Jo would have been a great couple. But aside from that, I cannot see Dean and Cas with anyone else besides each other. It just doesn't feel right, tbh.

My happily ever after for them: Just them finding peace, within themselves and each other. That's all I want at this point.

What I think will happen with them in the future: Who knows.
philstar22: Supernatural: Enochian for Minephilstar22 on September 24th, 2013 05:58 pm (UTC)
I feel like fandom got me into the ship before I even started watching the show since I didn't start watching until season 5 was already starting at the urging of people on my flist. And I was hooked on them from Castiel's first scene. I'm not sure why my brain saw that and thought shippy, but it did.

And I absolutely adore protective!Cas and BAMF!Cas as well as a Dean who loves Cas being like that (even if he won't admit it). My favorite thing in Dean/Cas fics.

I've seen many people who said they started watching the show because of the shipping, or simply because of Cas/Misha being present. And that's not a bad thing, imo. In fact it's a pretty good motivational tool to get more converts into a particular fandom.

LUCIUS MALFOY (HARRY POTTER)

How I feel about this character: I'm quite fascinated by him. Obviously from the films I love the way Jason Isaacs portrays his character, so that kind of transcended to the books and, esp in the last two there's definitely more to Lucius, and the Malfoys in general, than meets the eye.

My unpopular opinion about this character: That I love him? Is that unpopular?

One thing I wish would happen / had happened with this character in canon: I wished there was an update on what happened after the Battle of Hogwarts. It's been noted that he and his family were pardoned and not imprisoned, but it makes you wonder about what has happened after that. Where does he go from here? Will Lucius ever change his ways of thinking, his views and beliefs? There's just a lot of unanswered questions about these kinds of things, and it's something I wished the epilogue had included.

My het ship: Lucius/Narcissa. ♥

My fem/slash ship: I don't have any.

My OTP: Lucius/Narcissa.

My OT3: Lucius/Pimp Cane/Fabulous Hair

My non-romantic OTP: Hmmm, idk?

My anti-ship: Lucius/Voldemort

A headcanon fact: After the battle and after being pardoned, Lucius and his family were quite lost on where they belonged anymore. Despite being forgiven most of the Wizarding World still believed he was guilty, and former Death Eaters (who survived the battle and were in hiding from being persecuted) and past associates thought him a traitor for not participating in the battle. While public shaming was something he could handle for the most part, as he accepted it as part of his penance, he became frightened and paranoid when former Death Eaters started to target him and his family, knowing all too well what they were capable of. With the suggestion of his wife and son, he had reluctantly sought solace from Harry Potter and the Ministry of Magic who had promised their protection along with their help in capturing the remaining Death Eaters. After that, Lucius spent the next several years in solitude with his family, happy to have just survived everything and had hopes to rebuild their lives.

A scene/moment that sums up this character: When Lucius is begging for his son's life. I think that sums him up perfectly. He's not perfect, he may have done horrible, despicable things, but at the end of the day he cares about the safety of his family and will do whatever necessary to protect them.

An idea I have for the character that I haven't written: In regards to my previous curiosity, I think Lucius had mellowed out from his past self. He's part of that older generation that was instilled with these conservative pureblood beliefs and ways of thinking, and unlike his wife and son he would wasn't as flexible in changing himself automatically, but he was willing to attempt to do so. If nothing else than for the sake of his son, who he wants to make better choices in life than he did.
