I noticed it in the Buffyfandom the tendancy to have Angel do no wrong, while Spike could do no right. The total hero worshipping of one character, while constantly pointing out the flaws in the other. The whole point of character development in programmes is that they do develop. Spike fans can see his flaws, and also acknowledge them. We know where he started off, and what he became. It was what made him one of the most interesting characters in the show, and was what made Joss such a great storyteller.

Now in SPN we have the same thing with Dean can to no wrong, Sam can do no right. While the character development of both Sam and Dean is not as well written as it was for Angel and Spike, especially Spike (Angel could be very boring at times, he was quite static), the fans reaction is the same.

One character who is constantally good is not good storytelling. While Joss is better than Eric in that field, there has to be some movement in character. Yes EK may concentrate on Dean more, and show us his developements in more detail (another example of bad storytelling, after all he only had two main characters, so could've spent more time showing Sam's motivations last season, a major flaw of the season in my book).

If one character can do no wrong then they are boring, which I don't think either Angel or Dean are, it is just the depth of the character is being ignored. Spike, for example, moved from being almost a pantomime villian in Season Two, to a fully developed souled vampire in Season Seven. One we understood. While Angel was always far more interesting when we got glimpses of Angelus. To see where he started in his full evil character, to his search for redemption with his soul is what makes him interesting.

In dismissing the character to this one dimensional always right, always wrong way takes away any depth, or humanity (yes I know two of them are vampires, but they have souls). Humans are flawed, and so should good fictional characters be as well.

The depth of character development shown in BtVS and AtS, of each and every character in the show, is what makes Joss such a great storyteller, and his keeps his fandom alive. We just know we can put these character in situations and explore how they would react. I'm not sure that EK has given us enough information on either Dean or Sam to be fully inside their heads they way we can with Buffy!Verse characters.

So, say a demon or angel has sex with a human, without telling the human what they are. If you take possession as a type of sex...demons without permission, therefore already rape, or angels with permission (in as far as they understand it, so pretty much not with total comprehension of the implications of being taken over). Would they

Was really enjoying being on twitter and involved in the #luciferiscoming, then twitter banned it from Trending Topics. Do people not have a sense of humour. Ok, so maybe the God Squad did take it a little seriously, but it was tweeted that it was just a TV show *sigh*. Reminds me of "The Name of the Rose", where people just don't have any fun, and think it is an insult to God.

Saw that Castiel taking over Jimmy's body was done with consent. Thing that gets me is, when Castiel takes over his daughters body, who gave consent for that. If you take possesion on the same level as sex, then the girl was far to young to consent.

Ok, going to have something to eat, hungry.

I get to watch lucifer coming tomorrow, I hope he is awsome. I have a thought of him greeting both Sam and Dean as long lost sons. One broke the first seal, the other broke the last.

Ever wondered about Sam's time at Stanford? Well there is a journal you should watch/follow which explores this time in Sam's life.

[ profile] thesamjournal

Watch, join, track whatever, but lets enjoy young innocent Sam as he progresses through his Stanford years. It is up to day one now, and written in a blog style.

P.S. anyone noticed there is a push to make Supernatural a treanding topic on Twitter on Thursday? Something like #Supernatural?

So you could do Watch #Supernatural tonight.

The people next door are building a deck, wooden, that looks right into my kitchen. Not only dated, but did I mention how much rain we get. A wooden deck exposed to the elements, wind and rain.

They also start work at 8:30 am.

Between the T junction in front of my living room, and the deck at the back, I'll have no privacy. Should just get a flat and move out of here.


what does 3:04 mean )


Ronnie coming over today, we are nearly finished with Season 3 of Supernatural, and cannot get Season 4 until September. We should go back to watching AtS now. Despite never watching it when it was broadcast, Ronnie now prefers it to BtVS, which he did watch. As agreed it was darker and more adult. As well as being more realistic.

Well that is all from me at present!

"You Know Your Problem, You Keep It All In"=Sam Wincester, but I'm not going to.


Heavly involved in J2 AU....Expect a non Big Bang list of recs at some point, still putting together my Sam Meta, and avoiding spoilers.


Seems to be losing my interest, but the new season starts next week, and that should peak it up again...about time too. Not sure what will happen when the whole thing is over within one week, and don't even know it if is coming back again. What is RTD doing with his baby!

Doctor Who

Ummmm! These one of sessions, too long a break, not enough to get your teeth into. Looking forward to next year when we might get a real season. Interesting to find out how they handle all the new elements.


Missing my favourite writers, the comics left me blah. Still love Spike, but couldn't give a damn about any of the other characters anymore...except maybe Drusilla.

Anyway, having said all that, if any of it upsets you feel free to defriend, this is, after all, mostly a fandom Journal, with bits of RL thrown in. Not going to go and track you down for it, just wave you off and thank you for the good times we had!

I'm just a bit worried about what has happened during Season Four of Supernatural. We have seen the little brother that Dean wants, and it is no longer Sam, not to say that he doesn't still love Sam, and will move heaven and hell for him, just not the ideal.

While with Castiel, he has been a blank sheet to begin with, devoid of human emotions and cut off. As the season progressed he slowly began to experience human contact, mostly Dean, who he does things heaven doesn't like for. On top of that, a lot of fans seem to like him, while there has been a rise in character bashing of Sam. We are not getting Sam's POV at all in the series, and he is losing sympathy because of it. It seems EK and the other writers have isolated Sam.

I really don't want Sam to be Lucifers vessel, but I can see it coming. So his character is pushed it one side, while we get more Dean and Castiel.

Not happy at the prospect

I'm spoiler free, so, please, no spoilers in comments!

Sorry for spamming so much today. Don't know what is wrong with my stupid brain, it is racing....must be the bi-polar. I will stop now, even if I have to put my hands in mittens or handcuffs to stop typing!

Just thinking about the two Metas I'm going to write. Yes these are the things that keep me awake at night. Well and also that David was so boring while he was visiting I fell asleep for three hours after he left, I mean, he wanted me to decide for him whither he should go to Balloch or Glasgow after he left for a cup of coffee. By that time I couldn't care, as he had talked about it for a solid 10 minutes before that. Couldn't keep my eyes open.

Joss Meta

I see Joss as very much a detached people watcher, who is analysing what is going on around him. An observer, from a very young age, who now uses that information he has built up to use in his character development in his works.

Anyone else agree/disagree or have there own observations about what makes Joss such an expert on Character Development?


Sam Meta.

From the Pilot when we meet Sam, Sam is mourning. First it is Jess, then John then Dean. His emotions are very much effected by these tragic events, and his motivations and ambitions effected by them

While a character who is in mourning isn't cool, it is intricale to understand what is happening with Sam's mind, and why it was easy for Ruby, and, indeed both Azazeal and Lilth to manipulate him. He was under great stress, with feelings of guilt and loss.

Is this too depressing to write about? Would anyone want to read that?

I really don't think I could do the Meta without using it to explain a lot of what is happening with Sam, and where he is now.

Ok got a bit fed up with whole Sam vs Dean, and think those of us who love the brotherly love, and love them both should get together, so a friending meme!

Sorry for spamming today, but been awake for almost the whole day!

Edit Please take a moment to look at other people's responses, you might find some great friends! *waves to flist*

Still thinking about the Sam Wincester Meta/Character Study.

I think I will take a stab at Sam's state of mind during the four months that Dean was dead, and Ruby got him drinking her blood. I do think I know where his head was at, and that he was at a weak ebb when it happened.

Why do I think I can do this. Well Sam lost Jessica, his father then Dean within a very short time. I lost my father, Michael and my mother within a very sort time. I have done a little psychology for the counsilling courses I did. So I think I can relate a little.

Should I warn for this?

P.S. I guess as usual my characterisation will be out of step with everyone else's.

P.P.S. The two tents next door are still erect in the garden.

Ok, didn't see David and Ronnie today. Started coughing, sneezing, aches and pains and a headache. I think the headache was due to lack of sleep. So I phoned them and cancelled, took some lemsip, and went back to bed. The headache is gone, but, apart from the sniffling, the ball of my right leg is killing me.

I will not call this a meta, more along the lines of my rambling.
