Oh, and while I am posting, sorry that my review for A Little Slice of Kevin is a tad late this week. It seems that as soon as I am not under the pressure to finish a review within a week, I start procrastinating. But it is almost done and I should be ready to post tomorrow or the day after at the very latest.

So here we go, my favourites and least favourites of S6 and S7!
( The Road So Far )
( The One With the 31 Questions. )
I just wanted to say thanks to everyone who voted in my little hiatus poll. The majority of votes fell on new Supernatural fanart, a comprehensive S6 meta and the Swan Song review, so that’s what I am going to prioritise once my reviews for Let It Bleed and The Man Who Knew Too Much are done. I will definitely try to write the outstanding S6 episode reviews as well, but they will take a backseat for now. Overall I’ll probably alternate between fanart and my various writing projects. Now a S6 rewatch is in order, so I can expand the notes I already have for my S6 meta. Stay tuned!
I hope you all have somewhat recovered from the finale by now. *g* Personally, I loved it. I mean, okay, I have a couple of quibbles, especially with Let It Bleed, which has been less engaging overall for me than The Man Who Knew Too Much, but overall I am satisfied with the resolutions presented in the finale episodes. I have to say that I adored all things Sam in particular, my Sam love knows no bounds at the moment. ♥ In any case, it’s a tad inconvenient that both episodes aired after another, because I feel that it is more difficult to write a review if I cannot focus on one episode alone. My thoughts jump from one episode to the other and it’s all a bit jumbled at the moment. I will try to get these reviews done as fast as possible though.
Now, once these reviews are done, I am faced with the rest of the hiatus and my list of fannish things to do is quite long. However, I have no clue where to start, so I thought I’d ask you all what you would prefer to see in this journal in the upcoming months. So, here is a little poll for you:
If you're interested in something else entirely, just mention it in the comments!
So, I am lame. I got caught up in real life and other distractions - and completely fell behind with my reviews in the process. The reviews for the last couple of episodes are in varying stages of completion though, and I definitely plan to finish them all during the hiatus and then post them in one go. On the bright side, you all will have something to read during the long, cold winter break. *g*
I will just say so much upfront: All Dogs Go To Heaven was an okay episode for me, I enjoyed the brotherly communication, but the monster-of-the-week plot didn't really engage me. Clap Your Hands If You Believe was funnier than it had any right to be; it's definitely one of the highlights of this season for me. Caged Heat, on the other hand, was my least favourite episode so far, even though I enjoyed some of the character scenes.
Thanks for your patience. I kinda say that a lot lately. *g*
I don’t really do LJ memes much, because usually I don’t have the time and/or patience for them. The other day though sherrilina posted the 'The Road So Far' meme they had over at ontd_spnparty and I kind of got all caught up in it. It's a list of questions about your favourite/least favourite things about each season of Supernatural and since I spent so much time with it, I thought I might as well post it.

I haven’t been feeling well these last two weeks, that’s why I didn’t manage to get out my review for Two Minutes to Midnight in time for the finale. It will all be a bit delayed, I am sorry for that. However, I just watched the S5 finale and am stunned and heartbroken and happy and speechless and disbelieving and delirious. And since it will take A LOT of time to process this episode properly, I thought I’d make a first episode reaction post, just to share my love for Show today. ♥
( Sammy, it’s okay. I’m here. I'm not going to leave you. )
Tonight SUPERNATURAL airs its 100th episode! ♥ Congratulations to Kripke & Co for reaching this milestone. Wow, who would have thought back when the show started that we’ll ever find ourselves here? Does anybody remember the nerve-wracking time we waited for the confirmation that our little show was one of the few selected shows that would be picked up by The CW when UPN and The WB merged? Or when we were out of our minds with worry about The Crash? Or the fear that paralysed us all when we didn’t know for ages if we would get a S3? Fun times!
So, I felt a little nostalgic today and thought I’d take a look back at how it all started, I mean, for me, personally. I’ve been committed to this show for four years now, and like with any show there have been ups and downs, obviously, but the brothers Winchester are still my favourite characters on TV – even if they changed considerably over the years – and I think they always will be. So, have a stroll down memory lane with me, if you like.

In other news, I am sorry my review for 99 Problems is delayed, but my week has been extremely busy. The review is almost finished though and with a little luck - and lack of distraction - I’ll post it later today. My review for the 100th episode will be late as well, because my sister is visiting me for the next couple of days, so I won’t find any time to write. :)
Enjoy today’s episode everyone! ♥
Luckily enough, I keep copies of everything I write on my computer, so I decided to retroactively re-post my earlier reviews here in my journal, so I have a complete collection online, for myself as well as for people who love to go back and read up on older episodes or simply for newcomers to SN. Of course I made the mistake to re-read those reviews first and realised that not only my English back then wasn’t quite as decent as it is now, the reviews itself were a lot less structured and insightful.
So, over the last couple of weeks, I started reworking those older reviews to match them more with how my current reviews look like, added them to my journal and dated them back to the day the episode aired, so they didn’t clutter everybody’s flist. While reworking the reviews, I tried to keep them as free as possible from hindsight, but I am sure they are influenced by how I see episodes now, in comparison to how I saw them the first time around. Anyways, S2 and S3 are now complete, but my S1 reviews are totally useless and need some more work, so I will add those over the summer hiatus as I go along.
I also opened a new category for my writings over at Salt'n Burn, to have my art and my reviews together in one place. Instead of coding the massive amount of text into my site, I just linked to the respective review/essay here.
