(no subject)


I just finished watching 6x12 and still can't believe how perfect it was. I mean, I was literally BLOWN AWAY by this episode! Sure, I had high expectations after all these great reviews and spoilers and everything, and I knew that Sera&Co HAD to come up with a good eppy to make up for these looooong weeks without SPN, but boy, did they deliver! I watched this episode with my BF and was kinda ... scared it would be too much about hugging and fanservice and that he would roll his eyes about my fangirling, but even he liked it very much and had to laugh out loud at times! Really glad that the show still appeals to both women and men and hasn't become too much of a girl show like VD for example ;)

I can't pick out a single thing that I didn't like about "Like a virgin" apart from the fail!hug between Sam and Cas maybe :) But the rest of this episode? Perfection!!! Brotherly hugs.... interesting storyline .... believable ways of acting (I got why Cas was angry at Dean, but I also could understand where Dean was coming from), funny!Dean (the sword scene was priceless!)..... Sam slowly figuring out what happened in the last year (kudos to Jared for the acting in those scenes! He really made me want to hug and squeeze him throughout the episode!)....the bickering between the brothers ("I come back after a year and a half, and you're still not funny!" or "You're such a nerd")....the overall funniness of that episode ("Who likes virgins and gold? P. Diddy?") ... gosh, I could go on and on. I'm just so happy that this episode turned out to be as good as everyone expected it! It really felt like watching a season 2 or 3 episode, which was especially awesome for me since I only started watching SPN live last fall and kinda missed the old school vibe in every one of the new episodes. And now the boys are back and for the first time in a loooooooong time they're not really hiding anything from each other anymore (at least at the end of the episode!) and they're on the same page, with Sam not even being mad at Dean for not being honest with him! I was scared that this would be the next big problem they had to deal with, Sam not being able to forgive Dean for lying to him, leading to more angst and fights and mistrust ... but now it's all good! What more could we ask for????

Sooooo looking forward to next week, and I can't believe we get to have more of this awesomeness on a weekly basis now again! Hurry up, next Friday!

Writer's Block: The start of something wonderful

What is your favorite opening line of a book, and why?

"The most important things are the hardest things to say. They are the things you get ashamed of, because words diminish them - words shrink things that seemed limitless when they were in your head to no more than living size when they're brought out."

Stephen King - The Body

It's just so ... true what he says! And those lines have stuck with since I first read the novel in 1997. It's such a moving story!
