I have so many feels about Show last night, I can't even. But I'll try...

Back in the summer of 2005, I was at the Beverly Hilton with my grandma; we were in town for my niece's babynaming and there were all these posters all over the hotel for the new season of shows on TheWB, including something called Supernatural. It looked too horrorshow for me.

It took until 2006 for so many of you to fangirl it so hard that I started watching; I haven't stopped, I'm still into Show, and that's why my soul is overflowing with joy at how much #Supernatural200 was/is a love letter from Supernatural to the fans, and from the fans to the show. Thanks to the network, the writers, producers, directors, cast (past and present) and everyone behind the scenes, but more than that...

Thanks to the creative minds in this fandom, because without their fic, art, cosplay & more, wouldn't exist.

This episode - this transformative episode of a show that's not some meandering genre dreck - exists because the fans have created so much awesome. No other show can do - or say - that like Supernatural can.

Go, fangirl.

Because what every Supernatural fan has done to create, inspire, share, rec, curate and squee about when fangirling (or fanboying) is the reason we have this episode. Thank you, fandom, for doing so much to make #SPN200 possible.

It's like Misha said last night:

I have a hunch that [livejournal.com profile] missyjack and I may try to parlay this into a panel at SDCC this summer, because what's happened with SPN and its fandom, as shown by, in and through this episode, is unique - and probably not emulatable by any other show, film, webseries or book series, but it's a fascinating showcase of what happens when The Powers That Be let the transformative works develop amongst the fans. It's aspirational, it's magical and it's family.

And now I have to go and ponder whether a fan-staging of "Fan Fiction" would be a transformative work/fair use.

200 episodes already? It just doesn't seem possible. We've not seen the episode yet so I can't wait to see what your post is about. :D
