A Whole New Supernatural Convention

Screen Shot 2015-10-28 at 2.11.50 PM

Support Supernatural is excited to help get the word out about a very unique, very cool and very philanthropic Supernatural convention coming to the Seattle area in 2016! (Tentative dates: May 14th and 15th, 2016.) The founder is raising money to produce the event here.

In short, the convention is described as “Here to make all your wishes come true — A convention dedicated to the ladies of Supernatural.” This is a for-fans, by-fans project, so as a fellow fan site, we’re very excited about this!

From the Ladies of SPN Facebook page: “We want to have a conversation about the roles of women on Supernatural and support female characters in hopes that they can find their way to stronger and longer story lines. We all desire positive change in the media as a whole. This is a change we hope “Ladies of SPN” can garner.”

From the Ladies of SPN fundraising page: “We want the opportunity to talk to all these amazing female actresses: to ask them about their characters, why they chose to play them, how they approached the roles, how they felt about the way the characters ended up, what they hoped to accomplish. Going even further, I found myself wanting to ask questions of the female crew involved with the show as well: what brought them into Supernatural, what kept them there, what they loved about their roles in making the show come alive on screen, what they hoped would improve. In short, we wanted to open a dialogue, not only with the cast and crew of the show we’ve spent the last 10 years fully engrossed in, but with the fan community as a whole. We wanted to give people the opportunity they so obviously craved.

With all this said, there is a lot of work ahead. We’ve spoken with at least a dozen past and recent actresses, all of whom are eager and anticipating us giving them set-in-stone information. Academic types and crew are also on standby. People have assembled to make this happen and are just as driven as we are. This is going to happen if it’s the last thing we do. Let’s all unite to take this idea and see it flourish. Our favorite female actresses and industry ladies need our support! Tweet about it, tumble about it, tell your Facebook friends and your coworkers!”

The money raised with their IndieGoGo campaign will cover the cost of attaining the space, hiring any professional staff for security and tech, as well as paying to get the talent here. Any and all remaining funds raised will be donated to the charities the talent supports, such as:

  • The Multiple Sclerosis FoundationCreating A Brighter Tomorrow for individuals coping with multiple sclerosis. Supported by Rachel Miner

Episode 10.19

“The Werther Project” Review

By Annie Kenney

Cuthbert Sinclair is one creepy dude; that is one of the things I learned from last night’s episode. Another thing I learned is that Sam Winchester is sneaky but awesome and that the brothers are better together.

I’m unsure whether I enjoyed the episode as much as last weeks. It was one of those episodes that are there to move the main plotline forward and there was a lot going on. It was interesting to learn that Rowena can’t translate ‘The Book of the Damned’ without its codex and it was also unsurprising to find out that she wants the book for a totally different reason (even though we don’t yet know what that is). Her terms are pretty frightening though – she wants Sam to kill her son and Sam has agreed (I can’t see that happening somehow). I’m still not sure what Rowena’s endgame is and I’m still a tad unsure about the character. I have to admit she was less annoying and clichéd in this episode and she is starting to interest me a little.

Flashbacks are always a little unsettling and this one went back to the seventies (the decade style forgot). It was quite disturbing to see Suzie’s family commit suicide in increasingly gory ways and I have to admit I looked away when her mother cut her own throat. Another flashback in the episode had us revisiting the Men of Letters and it appears that they found Cuthbert as creepy and as disconcerting as I do! It is clear that Cuthbert was something of an eccentric genius who clearly had no conscience when it came to spells and the like. His deadly alarm system was certainly enough to protect the box but it caused a lot more harm than it did good.

The theme of suicide ran through the entire episode and I’m not sure if I liked that or not. Cuthbert’s spell affected everyone who tried to open the box and watching both Sam and Dean hallucinate was quite distressing. While I’m on that subject how many times has Sam lost blood from wounds on his arms? He was drained by ghouls in Jump the Shark, drained again by vampires in Alex Annie Alexis Ann. Although this time the wounds were self-inflicted Sam still lost a lot of blood. Surely he should have gone to the ER for a transfusion. Sam might have once been affected by demon blood but he doesn’t appear to have a lot of blood left in his body and I often fear for his health!

Benny, The Werther Project

How good was it to see Benny again? I really miss that character and I wish that the writers had found some way to keep him. I love Ty Olsson and his portrayal of the old fashioned southern blood sucker is spot on. How horrible though to see Dean tied up and ‘out of it.’ Jensen’s acting was fantastic and really hair-raising. Watching Dean stare into space and break glass bottles ready to off himself was awful and Jensen really, really sold it to me. What a relief when he managed to snap himself out of it and just in time to save poor old Sam as well.

Dean, The Werther Project

Even though Sam is still keeping secrets from Dean is was good to see the brothers working together and to hear Dean declare that they worked better as a team. Dean knows that Sam is concerned about him going rogue and he is still trying to hold in the power of the mark. After watching him kill all those vampires single handed it is obvious he isn’t coping too well with containing the mark’s influence. Every time something like that happens it makes Sam realise how bad Dean is getting and it drives Sam on to do more and more reckless things. Neither brother is particularly sane at the moment and watching them fall apart is one of the things that Supernatural fans enjoy (in a sick sort of way!)

Sam,  The Werther Project

It was awesome to see that Sam doesn’t actually trust Rowena and I almost cheered when he chained her up. He clearly knows she has a different end game to him but he isn’t giving up just yet. He has the book and he has the codex and it is just a matter of time before he has a way to remove the mark from Dean (or is it?)

So was The Werther Project a good episode? Well yes and no to be honest. It was interesting and it moved the plot along but it was also very dark and a tad disturbing. It wasn’t an episode that I enjoyed but it did hold my interest and it was extremely hard to tear myself away from it. I also found myself thinking about it long after it had ended. A very weird episode that made me feel distinctly uneasy.

I still have no idea where we are heading; Sam is clearly becoming as reckless as Dean in his search for a cure; Rowena is Sam’s prisoner and Crowley has a price on his head. Castiel is still around and he has his grace back and there is the spectre of Metatron lurking in the background. Things are coming to a head and it is clear that, as usual, nothing will come easy to the Winchester brothers.

Only four more episodes to go – I’m not sure I can stand the tension – can you?

HUGE Announcement from Jensen & Jared!

Jared & Jensen Announce New Fund

Wonderful news from our boys “Moose and Squirrel,” aka Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles:

“Our Story So Far…

howdy!
from “Moose” and “Squirrel”
so… we wanted to take a little time to let you guys know what we’ve been planning over the last couple weeks :).

here goes…
with the crazy success of the #SPNFamily, and #AlwaysKeepFighting campaigns, we’ve seen FIRST-HAND the kinds of amazing things that can be accomplished when we all work together to support causes that are important and meaningful to us all.
With y’all’s help, we’ve been able to raise (literally!) hundreds of thousands of dollars to support great organizations. Organizations like To Write Love On Her Arms, Wounded Warriors, St. Jude’s, Attitudes In Reverse, The Down Syndrome Connection, and more.

Beyond the financial benefits to these charities (and, in our opinions, even MORE IMPORTANTLY), we’ve also been able to start conversations about issues that have, up to now, been so heavily stigmatized by those who don’t understand, that they were often just avoided outright or hidden. We, as a group, have been able to offer support and love to people who we have never had the pleasure of meeting face-to-face.

Y’all rock.

Take it from two guys who flip through their comment sections every now and again, YOU ARE HELPING COUNTLESS OTHERS!

The causes we’ve been able to support so far are fantastic and deserving. We can’t wait to continue to work with them in the future. Wonderfully, our eyes have been opened to lots of other charities and causes that might need a helping hand to grow, or may not have even been started yet!

With that in mind, and with the understanding that there are SO MANY great organizations out there that could use a little push, we (Jensen and Jared, Dean and Sam, Squirrel and Moose, Jason and Dean [for you Smallville and Gilmore Girls fans], you get the idea) have decided to start a fund to support a variety of causes, now and in the future, that can help make the world as we know it a better place. We have a close friend (though much older than we) that “Randomly” performs certain “Acts” that change the world, and people’s lives, for the better. It’s been an inspiration, and we thought, we should do that too!

We have the “bug”. We want to seek out and find MORE worthy causes (while still supporting the aforementioned charities, of course) so that there can be an overwhelming abundance of places people can go to seek help. Whether it’s for mental illness, depression, addiction, or for causes that we are not even aware of yet!

In addition to the fund that we have started, we are ALSO going to work with that guy named Misha Collins (maybe you’ve heard of him) and his wonderful charity “Random Acts” to increase our reach and accomplish things that we simply could not accomplish alone. We’ve learned, after all these years, that things are better when we’re all working together.

So, there you have it.

Us. Y’all.
Y’all. Us.

Making the world a better place :).
