The Fangirl in Me

Work has kept me from thinking much about stuff that I rarely write about random thoughts. But on occasions, I do think about what I'd like to talk or write about. I guess this is one of those occasions. I just felt like talking about my favorite tv character and how he brings out the fangirl in me.

I found this entry on wikipedia: "A fan, sometimes also called aficionado or supporter, is a person with an intense, occasionally overwhelming liking and enthusiasm for something. Fans of a particular thing or person constitute its fanbase or fandom. They often show their enthusiasm by starting a fan club, holding fan conventions, creating fanzines, writing fan mail, or promoting the object of their interest and attention."

OK, I must admit I have this intense, overwhelming liking and enthusiasm for the tv show Supernatural. I've liked it since the show started showing five seasons ago. But work kept me away from watching too much tv that I got to see only a few episodes of this show then. I did get the chance earlier this year to buy the complete set of the episodes up to the half of the current fifth season. I instantly became hooked on the show and followed it closely. I'm so thankful for the Internet that held loads of information on the show as well as its characters. Youtube and other fansites held lots of valuable pics, reviews, and infos that I had a swell time reading back and catching up on my now most favorite tv show of all time. And then of course, there's my most favorite lead character : Dean Winchester!
I'm sure I'm not the only one who's going ga-ga over Dean (played by Jensen Ackles). In fact, my fascination with Dean's character poured over my interest to look up on Jensen Ackles as well who plays the character. Now I'm not quite sure whether I like Dean Winchester more or Jensen Ackles. LOL! One thing for sure, Jensen is such a superb actor that makes me love his character Dean Winchester more and more with each episode I watch. Now, Supernatural is down to its final episode for the fifth season. One more week and then it's gonna be a long wait again till sixth season begins. I'm not sure how I'm going to hold out till then but I guess I'm going to be spending lots of time watching reruns on cable and DVD's.

The pictures featured here are actually taken from the Supernatural site on facebook. They're spoilers for the season finale. Although I'm quite excited to watch the final episode, I'm going to be quite sad that it's ending. I've never enjoyed a show this much. Imagine a horror/action show that makes you laugh, cry, and actually feel good about the characters. At least there's season six to look forward to! Well then this isn't the last time you'll hear from me about my Dean. Well, I'm signing off for now to get my fix of watching reruns. Oh, and by the way, enjoy your Mother's Day celebration this weekend. A Happy Mother's Day to all moms out there, just like me. And yes, moms can be fangirls too.. well, sometimes.. esp. when you're talking about Dean Winchester :D
