Miniature meta

Totally random observation about the latest episode which seques into a mini-meta about Dean and his women.

You know I thought so back in Season 1 but intensive rewatching of a certain scene in "What should and what should never be" confirmed it for me.

The scene where Mary opens the door, she looks a lot like Julie Benz - I`m thinking the Angel-parts where Darla was human, a bit frail and not wearing the typical Darla-seduction make-up. Back in Faith I believe Dean really connected with Layla spiritually but damn, she is probably the woman coming closest to physical likeness with Mary he ever has - and ever will - met.
It`s probably just a weird coincidence with casting but I was really baffled by it. And somehow it`s freaky too.

Especially since I believe and WSAWSNB seems to confirm this, Dean prefers brunettes. Not that he`d say not to a hot blonde but he genuinely has the most chemistry with dark-haired girls on the show: Hailey, Andrea, Tessa, the Crossraods Demon, Tara, now Carmen. Cassie - okay type fits, chemistry not so much. Sarah and Madison would probably have been right up his alley too but Pimp-the-Sam wins out. :)

With the blondes though it never really works out: Jess was taken, no flirting with Bloody Mary!Charly or Asylum!Kat (too young?) or the stewardess or Home!Jenny (too much emotional turmoil?), Meg was adversary, Rebecca got the Shapeshifter, Jo was filed away as kid-sister

So okay, Layla was dying and all but when Dean was too he still got his flirt on with her. :) We see from Carmen he prefers Mary`s personality in a woman but maybe the physcial likeness not so much? Because they`ll never reach the perfection of his Madonna Mary anyway? Unless it`s a really, really resemblance? God Layla even prayed and probably died on him. Maybe that would have been too weird ultimately. Hello Oedipus.
On the other hand, Jess not only bore a resemblance to Mary (and Dean) on the outside but seemingly to fun-loving Dean on the inside too. While dark-haired, career-driven, more analytical Cassie goes more in the Sam-end of things. No matter half of fandom believes they`re doing each other. This whole family would be Sigmund Freud`s wet dream. :-p

Oh, and speaking as one: where the hell are REDHEADS? *grumble* Small, chubby redheads. Can`t go wrong with that boys, trust me. ;-)

I know it's fun :-p

Yeah, she had an inner strength that defied the usual TV law of "to be a strong woman, you have to be bitchy".


Exactly. I LOVED how impressed Dean was by her.

Btw. do you have a mobile? Wanna email me your number just in case? I'll call you at home some time between 8 and 9 today if that's okay?

And Meena said Birmingham's a really small airport and easiest thing would be to meet outside of arrivals.

Yes. And yes, gonna email it to you later. And that`s fine.

Okey-dokey. I`m pretty sure we`re gonna find each other. Just whip out a fangirl detector build from an old walkman. :)

Btw: I send you a little something, CD with my songvids. Just so you know it`s not crazy stalker mail. *g*

Reminds me, I wanted to wear a shirt "I kinda have this problem with flying" but I forgot to order it in time :-/

Aww, maybe after the Con I could send you a bloody ear or something. :-D

Oh sure, I love songvids.

That'd be great.


Okay, NO way I'm sending you my songvids. No fucking way. I just watched Legacy, ok? That's a bloody freakin' masterpiece. You made my cry. It's brillint. The way you squeezed the memories in, especially the one where Sam's by the window and remembers Dean from IMTOD and the song and everything? Holy shit, girl. I'm in awe. I have much to learn. Jesus Christ.

Did you ever upload it? Because... damn girl, it's so good.

I think my ego just grew wings and flew away. :) Really, thank you but there are lots better out there. I still have trouble sometimes to get the transitions right and make it fit with the rhythm. So yes way, I most definitely wanna see your stuff.

I don`t even know how/where to upload something like this. And it would take me at least an hour to do so, probably longer since the file is so big.

Yeah but my stuff isn't nearly as good as that. Seriously.

Also? I've now seen (hanks to you) the SPN_MENACE vid for the first time. Jesus Christ, I laughed tears and my belly hurts. So good.

(And I loved your Puppet vid, too. The Tom & Jerry song is one of the few tv themes I'm still missing :-p )

I don`t believe that. That`s what you`re always saying about your fic and it`s not true. Gimme. :) Those vids take so much work, it`s a shame if nobody sees them.
Maybe someday I`ll work up the courage to upload something. Do you have to pay for this?

It`s hilarious, isn`t? The voice-overs just fit so perfectly "Anakin Skywalker...meet Obi Wan Kenobi". :D

That was some silly thing I did a couple years ago because I loved the puppet ep so much and it just fit.

Yeah but I'm better at writing than vidding. Honestly :-) I've got only 8 SPN vids. I love vidding but I hardly do it because I'm not that good at it :-)

Well, I could host them at my webspace. Or I could be really greedy and cheeky and ask if we can upload them to our German websites...because we don't have many vids and I really love yours :-)

The voice-overs just fit so perfectly

Definitely. Awesome.

The Puppet ep is love :-)

See, you managed more than me. It takes too long and Movie Maker has this penchance to freeze up every thirty seconds just to drive me nuts. :)

Wow, on one hand I think all this work and what the hell, put them up, on the other I still see all the hick-ups. But okay, I`m taking your word for it. :) So if you want to, you are welcome to upload them to the website.
