So Glam Nation is over, having ended triumphantly in two fantastic LA shows. Adam fandom is probably going to be a little quiet for a while - or, at least, quieter.

I've seen a lot of people ask "What do we do now?" So, me being the caring and generous person I am, I've decided to start working on a little bit of a fandom primer. Being a multi-fandom person is a great thing! Adam takes well-deserved breaks, TV shows go on hiatus, there are years in between the release of new movies or books in a series. It's awesome to be able to bounce around to where the activity is. And hey, having more than one fandom means always having new fic to read!

Ok, enough of me rambling. Here we go. Today, I'm talking about my favorite TV show and fandom ever: Supernatural.

I'll be doing more fandom primers in the next weeks, I think. I hope someone out there finds them helpful!

Apparently Jared got married this weekend? Good for him!

Hey haters: I bet you a million bucks that fandom will pretty much go on just as usual. Come on, seriously. Take the bet. I need the money.

Also, [ profile] chez_amanda: I have to work tomorrow night (err...tonight), which sucks. You're totally welcome to come over, but I won't be there. :-(

Yes, still sick. Not as sick, mainly just coughing still, but my god is it an annoying cough.

BUT! Of course I had to make a post when Jared's engagement was confirmed, FINALLY, after being rumored for months.

And...I kind of don't really care. At all. I mean, yeah, I want the best for him and hope he's happy, but as to how it effects my shipping of the boys? Not in the slightest.

You see, I have a long history with RPS, and more often than not there are girlfriends, wives, kids in the picture. My RPS ships have included plenty of marrieds: John Stewart, Stephen Colbert, Roger Federer, John Barrowman, and oh so many wrestlers, just to name a few. Generally, I simply don't care. I just ignore the relationship in favor of the one I prefer to imagine.

And that's what I think is going to happen in this case. The boys will get married, some of the crazier fans will lose their shit and probably disappear, and then we'll go on shipping just as we've always done.

I talked about this when Jen's engagement came out. The SPN fandom is fucking spoiled as hell. It's incredibly rare to have a real-life ship like this with both people completely single and unattached. We need to get over ourselves and join the rest of the fandom world by accepting the obstacles and working around them.

So that's pretty much all I have to say on that. LONG LIVE J2!!!

I think Gareth would get along fabulously with the Js. I'm not sure they would know what to do with JB (particularly Jen, who seems to embarrass easily), but Gareth seems like the type of guy who would be easy to hang out with. Watching his con footage, he reminds me of them. Someone should write Gareth/boys hanging out fic.

Although I can see Misha and JB becoming fast friends and possibly taking over the universe. Perhaps those two should be kept AWAY from each other... :-)

I don't usually enjoy manips, mostly because they're generally not very well done and it just looks silly.

These, though? These I enjoyed. They're still silly, but they look close enough to real that if I just squint a bit, I can believe it.

They've all been resized - they're bigger and better in their original formats.

Hotness of epic proportions - NSFW )

All of these can be found here, in the Aarinfantasy gallery. I didn't make them, and I'm not sure who did.

Well, we're back home after an amazing weekend - [ profile] chez_amanda and I had a fantastic time! I know she posted a very detailed con report on her journal, so I'm not going to go through every detail here. However, here are the parts that stand out to me the most - the best of the best:

- Richard showing up instead of Jake. No hate, but I LOVE the Trickster, and Richard was awesome and hilarious.

- Traci being beautiful and awesome, and casually mentioning her dominatrix phase. I want her back on the show!

- Alona being super-sweet. I wish they'd let her play Jo more like herself - that would have been much better than the scripted character, and I think she kind of agrees.

- Traci calling her mom and Aldis calling his girlfriend. Adorable!

- Getting to ask Misha a question and actually have a little conversation with him during his panel.

- Getting to talk to Misha AGAIN during autograph signings, and having his face about six inches away from mine. Surreal!

- Jared and Jensen being incredibly nice during the whole process. I loved that they came out after the autograph session to apologize about being so rushed (and yeah, it was SUPER rushed compared to the others). They seemed at ease and friendly and gracious and humble during all of it, and I REALLY appreciate that.

- Meeting other fans and seeing how awesome 99% of our fandom really is - even the 1% of crazy kept it reined in for the most part.

- Winning a round of Supernatural trivia! I had a great time spending the $250, all on autographed pics of celebs from other cons. Obsession pays off!

- Rob being all adorable and nervous, it being his first con, and Misha texting him good luck.

- Coming out of the whole experience with renewed love and respect for the show as well as its cast and crew. The whole weekend was very warm and loving - I hope the celebs felt it as much as we did!

- Basically, just a wonderful weekend all the way around. I would absolutely recommend it to anyone who gets an opportunity to go!

ChiCon schedule just went up. My favorite bit:

12:30pm – 1:30pm Jensen & Jared Q&A. Jensen and Jared have asked to appear together on stage for their full timeframe.

Yes please! As much as I like boys alone, I like boys together even better!

So I bought The Sims 3 recently, despite knowing that it would definitely detract from my writing time.

I totally made a J2 household. There's also totally a story that goes along with the game - in my head, anyway. I call it "Jared and Jensen Get Married and Move to a Luxurious Beachfront Property Wherin Jared Works Out, Jensen Plays Guitar, and They Have Lots and Lots of Sex."

I am not ashamed, though I feel like perhaps I should be.

ETA: Also, I just laughed so hard at the intro for the new episode of Sunny that I literally sent myself into a five minute coughing fit. Huge props for the hilarity of the episode, but not so much for me or my lungs.

Padeleckicest FTW. For serious.

The next ep of SPN is going to kill me. You know how some people got really squicked by the fandom mentions last episode? Well, I just watched a few clips from next week, and I seriously think I'm going to be WAY MORE SQUICKED byspoilers for next episode ) I'm sure Kripke will work it out so it's awesome, because he's good at stuff like that, but still. WEIRDED OUT.

ETA: Also, HOLY FUCK THE SLASH AT THIS CON! Misha/Jared assfucking, Misha asking the Js if it's hard to play brothers onscreen when they're lovers in real life, etc, etc, on and on...I think they've just given up, when it comes to the slashiness. They seem to be getting progressively slashier at every con - who knows where they'll be by Chicago! *grin*

LA Con

From [ profile] juice817:

AHAHAHAHA I forgot one story! Someone asked them about the wrap party and they said they didn't know, they didn't make it. They flew here yesterday to be with us instead and, to quote Jensen, "Jared and I had our own wrap party last night." Then he smirked and added "That's why I'm having a hard time moving around this morning."
