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/p
