where did you go with a girl named jo

Everybody's all NEW SUPERNATURAL!!ASHDHFJH!!! REACTION POSTS YAY!!

And I'm wondering how the fuck did we get to the point where there's only two episodes left? Can someone please explain to me where the past five years have gone? I'm not ready for the season finale and I think it's because next year may really, truly be the end of the show and that makes me sad in my pants.

So. Who's up for a massive rewatch of all five seasons this summer? Hands? Just me?


It's always fun going back and reading old fics. If you like cringing and shaking your head and wondering just what the hell you were thinking, you know?

At least I'm using it as an opportunity to re-edit them. I can't believe how much I used the word AS. Like, I used it all the time. Even now, I have to be careful and go back through and edit what I write because for some reason, the words in my head just flow that way. At least now I recognize it as a fault and can correct it. As a writer, it's interesting to me to see how my writing has grown and changed over the years. Especially when I'm editing a fics I wrote three, four years ago. Some of you guys were still in high school or even middle school then! Crap, that's like half a millennium in lj-land.


Anyway. To all that have wondered or asked, it appears I'm in the planning stages for a sequel to i used to know you so well. So, good news, yay? And with all my massive fic endeavors, I like to create a playlist to listen to while writing. What are your songs that remind you of Sam and Dean? Or if you're a fan of my work, girl!Sam?

Hook me up, peoples!

And for you, this is MY girl!Sam song, and one of my absolute favorites of all time: Patty Griffin - I Said to the Sky. The melancholy of the lyrics and the raw power of her guitar and voice, the heartbreak and the anger bleeding through gets me every freaking time, makes me ACHE.



I said to the sky
Do you want me to fly
The sky said, "No,
It ain’t your turn to go"

I said to my man
Where did you go
With a girl named Jo
Down to old Mexico
Got two babies, got no money honey
I can’t pay my note
Oh, I said to the sky
Where do you want me to go

I cry in the night
I'm weeping and I pray
I cry to my mother
Long long gone away
Let me lie in your arms
For one hour today
Let me lie in your arms
In your arms let me lay

I said to my lord
Who don’t give me no smile
You give me nothing but dust
All of these miles after mile
I said to my lord
I’m nothing I know
Oh, but where in this world
Is a poor woman to go

I cry in the night
I'm weeping and I pray
I cry to my mother
Long long gone away
Let me lie in your arms
For one hour today
Yeah, let me lie in your arms
In your arms let me lay

I said to the sky
Do you want me to fly
The sky said No
Ain’t your turn to, ain’t your turn
I said to the sky
Do you want me to fly
The sky said No
Ain’t your turn to, ain’t your turn to…

I said to the sky




Finally, I've been listening to lots of podfics lately and think I may like to try my hand at recording some of my stuff. It'll definitely be trial and error and knowing me, I may get one or two fics done and then grow bored of the whole thing. I've downloaded Audacity and think I may go hunt down a relatively cheap microphone tomorrow.

My whims, let me show you them.
