But this one is serious, youse guise! Your opinions needed. Would The Boys' tattoos protect them against ghost possession as well as demonic? Talk to me.

IMO, no. That tattoo was specific to demons. Ghost pssession was also super rare / unheard of when they encountered it so litte likelihood of them knowing how to ward against it.

Wow, my late- night grammar sucks, lol

My daytime grammar sucks, so you've got me beat. :D And YAY! I need a few Winchesters to get some ghost up in 'em. *ahem*

I wouldn't think so. The lore would be quite distinct, in my opinion. In fact, in After School Special they never specify how to ward against it. They just salt and burn the remains, and that solves the problem.

PERFECT! I was hoping that would be the consensus...

For what it's worth, I agree with the other guys. Kind of like (maybe) we can spray stuff on ourselves to keep from getting bit by mosquitos, but it would have no effect on the doberman up the street.

Mostly I'm commenting because I absolutely love the song "Crazy" that you were apparently listening to when you posted and had to tell you so. Have you heard the Kidney Thieves' version? Obviously completely different from Patsy Cline's (the classic version!); very intense and addictive in a different way.

I love a consensus! And I DO love that song. Hell, I love just about every song entitled "Crazy," ominously enough. And know what else I love? Covers. Nothing makes me squee more than a great cover tune. So I'll have to check out your suggestion. And thank ya!

I would say definitely not - it was always talked about as protection against demons, it certainly didn't work against angels, so I think you are safe to assume a ghost could get inside 'em.

Mmm - wasn't there something about ghost possession being of people in a weakened, vulnerable state (either emotionally or physically)?? This may of course be something I read in a fic...

I'll have to go back and watch "After School Special", see what they did. But I like that notion; certainly fits in with what I have in mind...

Actually in Phantom Traveler (1.04) They say that fear or stress makes people (more?) vulnerable to demonic possession, but it makes sense that would also be true for other types.

I agree with everyone else.

Reading their comment and your replies, I'm very curiou about what you're planning!
