I got my home-state! So excited. I actually started writing a fic with this very topic about six months ago, but I never had a good reason to finish it, and now I do! ; )

How cool that you've got a leg up! I love it when unfinished creative bits find homes. Kinda like the Island of Lost Toys.

I snagged my (current) home state too. I went digging for ghost stories last week, centered on my town, and there wasn't much. BUT! I got a rabid plot bunny for the one tale that seemed like there was some meat to it and now I'm really stoked to visit the cemetary...*rubs palms together greedily* Hey, what do you know about SPN ghost possession, while I'm thinking of it?

The only episode Supernatural has had that dealt directly with ghost possession was "After School Special" in which Dirk McGregor-- who is haunting the school bus his father operates, can possess the bodies of any student on the bus. He stays in them and goes wherever he wants (usually to the school to kill someone he feels deserves it), and then when he leaves the body he's possessing, is pulled back to the school bus.

Other than that there have been many episodes involving ghosts, but no others with possession per se. Both PT Sandover in "It's a Terrible Life" and Sanford Ellicott in "Asylum" influence people and drive them to acts they wouldn't normally commit, but neither openly possessed anyone.

Sweet, thanks! You are a lovely, walking SPN encyclopedia. (I have another technical SPN question but it gives away one of my plot twists so I might wait on asking that one until after I've done some more research.) This is going to be a most awesome challenge!

Well the funny part is- I've been a mythology buff since I was a kid, so I always shouted out whatever I thought Sam & Dean were hunting (especially back in the early seasons)- which is why hubby decided I was clearly the 'Sam.' He also thought 'walking encyclopedia of weirdness' applied to me, lol.

Damn you temptress! Now I've gone and signed up to write something about Alaska. All because I did a drabble someone asked me to expand about a year ago, and I thought this might give me a big kick up the bum to get on and do it. But I'm still blaming you.
The indefatigable Mrs. Griffinquickreaver on September 5th, 2011 08:32 pm (UTC)
Oh, wow, Alaska...YES! (Can they see Russia from their hotel room?) I debated picking a more "exotic" state than my Ohio home, but I really wanted to go on-location and sit in a graveyard and write.

I will gleefully except all blame And credit, because I know your fic is gonna kick total ass! ;)
Amberamberdreams on September 5th, 2011 08:44 pm (UTC)
Um. So no pressure then, he he he!
Reaperreapertownusa on September 5th, 2011 08:05 pm (UTC)
Thank you for the reminder! I totally forgot that the state picking was today - I doubt my state would've filled up, but I would've pouted if it had ;)
The indefatigable Mrs. Griffinquickreaver on September 5th, 2011 08:29 pm (UTC)
So far I think there's only one duplicate which is really cool...lotsa options and variety. Get 'er! :D

I can't play in this sandbox due to the fact that my sandbox is located on a different continent. But it looks awesome. Was your ghost posession question for this?
The indefatigable Mrs. Griffinquickreaver on September 6th, 2011 04:31 pm (UTC)
Yes, it was, actually! I'll tell you about it privately if you want, as not to reveal my plot to the world at large. But LATER! I've got a drawing to finish! ;)

I'd love to hear more about it!
