Well, I have
1. LOOK WHAT WAS IN MY MAILBOX TODAY!
When I ordered the magazine I accidentally hit "Back" once, so I was worried I would get like 4 or 6 of them, but I had 2 - both with the SPN cover! YAY! - in my mailbox this afternoon!
Here are the smaller photos that are inserted into the interviews (which I can't read, obviously). I only put up the photos that (as far as I know, anyway) haven't really been released elsewhere or have manipulated backgrounds.
This? TOTALLY my favorite photo in the magazine! Look at their faces! They're both like "Teehee! Look! We gots GUNS!" OH BOYS.
And it makes me wonder if, while very early in production, they originally wanted Sam's weapon of choice to be a gun (which reminds me of Jayne's gun, Vera, from Firefly for some reason) and then they changed their minds to just have Dean be the one with guns and give Sam a knife?
Here are the three posters that are included, and they are wonderful and big! I don't even have enough wall space for all three! But I'm (way too) excited about putting them up somewhere.
Isn't that small photo of Jensen in the top left corner different than the S1 promo photos of him in the booth? *grabby hands* I want a full picture!
Why HELLO there, my favorite new photo. I just LOVE the lighting on his face.
Haha. Oh Wendigo! You crazy thing you!
Why can't we have something like this in the US? Titan magazines, I'm looking at YOU! If you can have a Lost, Prison Break, and freakin' Grey's Anatomy bi-monthly magazine, you can give us one for SPN. My fingers are crossed that with the Buffy and Angel magazines ending, you will have one for SPN out by the start of S3.
2. And in a totally different fandom (but one I know is beloved by many on my flist), here is a clip that is guarenteed to make you laugh! It's from Firefly in the VERY extended gag reel that SHOULD have been on the DVD set but was not. (Seriously? We wuz robbed with the cut that made it onto the DVDs)
If you've listened to the commentary for "The Message" or heard about it at a convention, you'll get what's going on. If not, basically, Tim Minear was filming in a continuous circle to get reaction shots to a long monologue from Jonathan M. Woodward. Just watch and laugh.
3. OK, so this story might not cheer you up (in fact, probably the opposite), but it's just hurty and angsty and just OMG BOYS. And YES it's on fanfiction.net but GO READ IT.
Still Life by Rose of No Man's Land.
Summary: John Winchester sold his soul for damaged goods, and Sam’s the one shouldering the burden now. A weird, twisted, Somersault-in-reverse kind of deal! Set after In My Time of Dying.
Basically, a (and I kinda hate the word, but...) limp!Dean fic (which I've never read before. Sam is the one who always gets the brain trauma for whatever reason). "Somersault" is her much longer limp!Sam story and both just make my heart ache. Both are Wincest but the main focus is on Sam and Dean taking care of each other, helping and loving each other, and being there no matter what.
