The indefatigable Mrs. Griffin

I'm feeling melancholy today, seeing all the pics from our final Upfronts on the Tweeter machine. Remembering the rapt love I used to have for SPN, because of the setting, the genre, the characters. Now granted, just like childbirth, you tend to forget the horrible parts, but as I was perusing bratfarrar's journal, with the old screencaps and chiaroscuro and classic American Gothic ambiance, I am at once still so very fond of the show, but angry. Angry that this thing I used to love beyond logic has become what it has. Has taken turns that feel so un-SPN-like (to me). Nothing gold stays, I get it, and since Dabb has directed the show in the way he has, what he's shepherded is SPN, whether I dig it or not. And for many, it has become more of what they wanted, so I shouldn't be so ... selfish? But this is our last season, my last season (even though fandom will go on and on, and I'm not leaving the fandom anytime soon), a final hit of canon. I can choose to be bitter, or I can choose to resurrect what I used to love.

Nothing ever stays dead on Supernatural, right? I can bring back--in my ruminations and my willful Americana goggles--the only stupid TV show that has burrowed into my heart. I can make this choice to see and enjoy the final season the way I want. So, remind me of that when I start bitching again, okay? :D You have my full permission.

Love you guys.
