One Day in the Life of Spoilerphobe Fangirl (S11 Bunker prep!)

S11 is approaching altogether too quickly (some of us have lots of fic they want to write before they get DISTRACTED, and are not emotionally prepared for new content yet, XP), but in the spirit of these festivities, and the likely new influx of spoilers leading up to the premiere, I wanted to offer a brief PSA on spoilerphobes.

Obviously, everyone is free to post whatever they wish on their journals, and I certainly wouldn't police anyone's behavior in their space. But there are a lot of definitions and degrees of spoilerphobery, and I thought it might be helpful to know how extreme one can get with this.

Things that count as a spoiler to me:

- general, global statements about the shape of the season, Sam and Dean's relationship, etc.
- general statements about character arcs
- premises of individual episodes or arcs
- planned homages (e.g. 'we want to do a B/W monster movie episode')
- casting spoilers - for NEW characters, RETURNING characters, special guest stars, returning season regulars, etc. -- basically anything beyond "well, J2 are in it to a greater or lesser degree")
- episode titles
- episode directors/writers
- the preview scenes they release on the CW website
- the teaser for the upcoming episode (even though YES, technically the teaser has 'aired'--I don't watch them!)

Yes, there are freaks like me out there. XD I'd ask that in the comments on this journal, spoilery content please not come up. Thank you! :)

I've magically managed this entire summer having only picked up two spoilers for S11, which is probably some kind of personal record. This is very exciting to me!

But moving on to all of the ~SUPER important logistical stuff. Has everyone decided when they will be watching the new episodes, in accordance with their timezones, work schedules, life schedules, etc.?

I think I might go for Thursday nights, because Thursdays start early for me and don't end until late, so it's probably better for my attention span to not stay up late spazzing out.

My personal goal for this season is (deceptively) simple: To watch every episode within the week it airs. Because RL SHALL NOT OBSTRUCT MY PLEASURE, for one, and for two, because I've actually never managed that before.

Last season my goal was to drabble for every episode. But after the first six or so episodes it started to feel like a bit of a chore for me, though, because after I got the pulse of the season I realized that I wanted to write fascia more than I wanted to write episode-specific responses. Not that you can't write fascia cleverly disguised as a tag, but there's that pesky 'but can you do it in a week before the next one airs' bit.

SO THIS YEAR MY GOAL IS SIMPLE: WATCH THE DAMN THINGS. And see from there how the 'writing toward them' manifests. XD

What about youuuuuuuuuu?!
