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 :)
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!
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!
