AECON 2 or One of the best weekends of my life :)

I went to the Supernatural con in Mannheim last weekend and had such a great time! Met a lot of nice people, had the chance to see Jared up close, got an autograph from Jensen, laughed my ass of at Richard + Mark's panels and simply enjoyed being in an environment that celebrated our show! If only it could have lasted longer ... those three days were over so quickly!
In general, I was surprised by how popular SN apparently is here in Germany. I for one don't know anybody who watches the show here and thought that it would probably be only the English people from last weekend's con that would attend the one in Mannheim, because it was organized by Rogue Events too. But there were around 800 Germans who were genuinely interested in Supernatural, who are following the show via Internet also and who were just as happy as me to finally see Jensen, Jared, Richard, Mark, Fredrik and Brock in person! And although J2 were always heavily protected by at least 3 bodyguards all the time and couldn't even go to the restroom by themselves, it was  great to just have them pass by so close and be able to make out their features or notice their freckles ;) or have them wave at you while they were escorted from one room to the other! It was really apparent that Jensen and Jared are the star of this thing and that they are are several paygrades above Richard and Mark for example, who just walked the floors on their own, said "How you doin'" to everybody and generally were so easy going and "normal" that you didn't feel like a total stalker next to them :)

Mark's and Richard's panels really were the highlight of the con for me, because they were so hilarious and got along so well that it just was a pleasure to watch them! They always crashed the other's Q&A and walked through the crowd, taking questions from everybody and were visibly having a really good time - I have never laughed so much at an event before! These two should definitely get their own show or at least finally have some scenes on SPN together! And they were just so nice during the autograph sessions, signing everything patiently and thanking everybody for coming out to see them. Mark said "Thank you my darling" when he gave me back my pic :)

Jensen and Jared's panels were of course phenomenal too - you could really FEEL that they get along great and that they like doing all this, they were in such a good mood and were joking all the time. And they are just so PRETTY, it's not even funny. When Jared walked by me on the hotel corridor, I literally had to hold my breath to stare at him - he's just so TALL and tanned and has such a great SMILE! I felt like a 15 year old teenager ;) And standing next to Jensen while he was signing my picture threw me off so much that I actually couldn't get my signing sheet out of the folder it was in, because my hands were shaking so badly. He's just intimidatingly beautiful!
I really wish I had a better camera, because most of the pictures I took are very blurry, which is why I had to resort to photographing the screen. But I figure it's better than nothing, and I can always watch the videos on youtube to relive their panels!
Overall, I really have to say that I enjoyed every minute of the con and would definitely go again, although it's really expensive  - and I didn't even get a photo op, just the autographs that were included in the admission fee! OK, my "meeting" with Jensen was over in like three seconds (he said Hi, smiled, signed the picture and moved on to the next girl), and sadly I'm not best friends with Jared now after meeting him on the town at night and showing him around as I secretly wished, but hey, you can't have everything! Just being able to see them in person really compensated for everything, even for getting up at 4am on Saturday morning to watch the finale before the con started ... and what a finale it was! I'm still not sure how I feel about it and definitely have to watch it again ... but I'm not too happy with Cas, that much I can tell you!
I will definitely be back if there ever is a con in Germany again, and I hope Jensen, Jared, Richard and Mark will be there too!

  • SPN Convention, here I come!!!!

    Yes, it's true: I'm actually going to the SPN Convention in Mannheim from May 20 to 22! Still can't believe it ... all thanks to my awesome boyfriend…


    It's official, we're actually getting another season of SUPERNATURAL! I would have been so pissed if we hadn't been renewed - this is the first…
