Hockey Michael! [Mar. 20th, 2016|09:51 pm]
tasabian
Happy Birthday danceswithgary Hope you have a nice day tomorrow.

There was a SPN convention this weekend. I saw via the tag on twitter that a person attending had threatened to "spit on" and "do things" to Misha because of, I guess, shipper wank; the Con allowed her to attend but assigned her a bodyguard who followed her everywhere so that Misha would be safe. Very surreal. Every so often I think a SPN Con might be fun (because I still enjoy the show & cast a lot) but then I read this and think NOPE.

I did buy myself a SPN charity hoodie because the "You Are Not Alone" message resonated after a rather difficult winter. Very warm & cuddly.

This boy is due back in Vancouver for Impastor S2 this week & understandably his friends aren't ready to let him go. (Photo: Shira Scott Astrof)

Wow, if I'd been in charge of the con, that "fan" wouldn't have been let in the door. Imagine needing a bodyguard to keep you from behaving that badly!

What is with that wig? It makes him look like Garth. Party on, Michael.

My thoughts exactly. And as a fan, I wouldn't want to be around that person either. The vehemence of SPN ship wank astounds me. A number of years ago, I remember posting a blandly positive comment about an episode on a SPN message board and getting back the response "I HOPE YOU DIE." So even though I enjoy the show, I'll stick to Michael's conventions, I think.

I think Garth is what he's aiming for, the big silly!

That's terrible about the response to your comment. I saw a lot of that kind of thing in the Glee fandom -- many of the fans were very young, with not much control of their emotions, and they'd wade in telling others to kill themselves, etc. It was atrocious. I kept thinking that, if I caught one of my kids writing anything like that on the web, there'd be hell to pay.

He is silly, and I'm so glad. :D

I remember hearing about the vehemence of Glee fandom...oh dear. And SPN fandom doesn't have the excuse of youth, given that it's been airing for 11 years!

Interesting that SPN fandom is still reliably insane after all these years - would have thought that some of the crazies would have grown up or moved on to new fandoms by now. Strange how some fandoms seem to attract a particular type of fan as well - would be interesting to do a study of what the similarities between the batshit fandome are and see if there are particular factors that cause it (if only I had the time, expertise, energy, contacts etc).

It's all fun and games until the mullet wig comes off...

Fortunately the shirt came off too!

Unfortunately it seems like the crazies embed the deepest! All the SPN folks I follow are lovely so it's odd to get a glimpse into the other side, where it's a Battle Royale over 'ships.

Hearing the frightening stories about the SPN fandom makes me happy I'm on the outer fringes of it.

I LOVE Michael's Garth look. SHA-WING! ;) Though, I definitely LOOOOOVVVVEEEE the pic he posted today with the Cup soooo much more. ;P`````` DAMN did he stay in shape!

Very considerate of Michael to post the shirtless pic. TUMMY! BELLY BUTTON!

I know lots of lovely SPN fans but a handful of fanatics kinda put me off joining the fandom. And I love JaredJensenMishaMark.
