Also, favorite title card is favorite.

I really need to re-evaluate my relationship to this show, but I don't want to, so I won't. (In this sense, I think the Winchesters themselves are an excellent allegory for fandom!) But seriously guys, I was so afraid that if I was online, I'd get smacked in the face with a lot of 9x01 hate. SO AFRAID, in fact, that I somehow managed to spend a solid 14 hours doing nothing--nothing!--but actual work. Well, there was about an hour of housework/cooking in there somewhere, but you get the idea. Granted, this was a great opportunity to do all the work I did not do last night/this weekend, so all hail fear, man. Luckily, I'm currently off the Tumblr wagon, and LJ has always felt much more open and safe to me; so Tumblr can say whatever it wants, I guess, because I ain't watchin'. XD

I dunno; I guess as much as the point of SPN is hugely interactive for me (watching it with other people, doing fandom), during/right after I watch an episode is very interior; I'm way, way overly invested in other people's opinions of this stupid show, so I guess it's nice to have that period where it's a purely private, personal event.

But the actual object of this post. I realize I signed up to do an in-depth analysis of 9x01, so if you have a reaction post/tag!fic, or if you felt really compelled by someone else's, (be it positive or negative, or both) please link it to me! I'm planning to go through my flist tomorrow night and open a bunch of tabs, but I'm still playing RL catch-up right now so I don't want to miss any of you in my haste.

I can't promise that I won't reference 5-year old Chris Morgan in my srs bsns analysis. I'm having such conflicted feelings about this episode! I'm pretty sure I shouldn't like this episode, based both on content and quality of said content, but on the other hand, I really, really like it. I really do.

I think this is like my love for beekeeper!Dean and endtable!Sam/tarantula!Sam/hedgehog!Sam/python!Sam, in that there probably isn't a whole lot of basis for my love, if any at all, but it is absolutely there.
