My review of the Supernatural episode “Like a Virgin” is up at pinkraygun.com. Enjoy!
Back in December of 2008 I made a post that called for people who wanted to be interviewed for my piece on fan fiction for Pink Raygun. The link to that post is here:
Many people responded, and two years later, the piece is being posted. The delay is due in part to real life issues, but also in part to the fact that I had a hard time getting my hands around the material I collected. All the respondents had a lot to say and all of it was interesting!
The dates for posting are:
Introduction: It’s So Very Personal
Getting Into Fandom: Walking on the Wild Side
Becoming a Fan Fiction Writer: Dealing in Emo
Fan Fiction: Why? Why? Why?
Character: It’s In The Way That You Use Him
Conclusion: Bringing in the Sheaves
Best Regards and happy reading!

My review for the Supernatural episode “Appointment in Samarra” is up at pinkraygun.com. Enjoy!
“Then, committed to my task, I still had to stop to look up Balthazar. Remember him? I didn’t. But apparently, he’s an angel who wanted to kill Sam and Dean at some point last season. But then, who doesn’t these days; the world is out to get them. Anyway, I had to look him up because I didn’t remember him and he has a scene with Sam, who, foolishly, has to-do list, at the top of which is inscribed: “Mistakes I Need to Make Today.””
My review of the Supernatural episode “Clap Your Hands If You Believe” is up at pinkraygun.com. Enjoy!
“There’re so many things about this ep that were great or laugh-out-loud funny and I had such pleasure watching this one twice. Overall, I adored this episode in a way I haven’t in a long time. I like that Sam’s getting some great lines now. I love that Dean realizes how important Sam is to him, that is, Sam with a soul, which he wants to get back. Even if having a soul and being human means nothing but constant pain and sorrow. Which isn’t exactly true, being a human is pretty cool. There’s joy and happiness and hot chocolate and puppies, and along with watching cool shows like Show, and Stargate: Atlantis and Numb3rs and Starsky & Hutch that makes life worth living. Sure, bad things happen to good people, but that, along with the sorrow that comes when beloved shows are cancelled, is part and parcel of being alive. You can’t have the sweet without the bitter, after all.”
Dear readers who are looking for this week’s Supernatural episode review. Unfortunately, there was an unepected emergency that took me out of town and away from my computer. Next week’s review will be posted as regularly scheduled at pinkraygun.com, and this week’s review will be posted as soon as I can get to it.
Thanks for reading and for stopping by.

“Plus, Sam begs and asks and cajoles Dean to untie him. Dean says no, no, and not only that, hell no. So in a terrific little move, Sam shakes off the ropes from his wrists and with a twitch stands up and announces that, hey, I’m done being locked up, and you can’t hold me so you might as well fight with me. He refers to himself as “the soulless guy,” which cracked me up. In fact, I laughed a lot during this ep, at funny little comments the characters would say, almost to themselves, under their breath, as though muttering at the absurdity of their situation.”
My review of the Supernatural episode “You Can’t Handle the Truth” is up at pinkraygun.com. Enjoy!
“This week, Sam and Dean are on the hunt for the Magical McGuffin that causes people to ask for the truth, and, being unable to handle it, to kill themselves in violent and/or messy ways. I’ve already talked about the aforementioned Jane, and the dentist, and next up is Dean. Yes, indeed, he’s a victim of the week in his own right, and of course the reason why is that he wants to know the truth about Sam. Show has been leading up to the fact that there is “an unknown truth” (to quote the Unnamed Romulan Commander from The Enterprise Incident) about Sam. But, this being Show and this being TV, while Dean spends a lot of time on the phone, by the end of the ep, we still don’t know. I wanted to point that out now, so if you’ve not already seen the ep, you won’t get your hopes up.”

“But, most importantly, we see Sam and Dean drinking beer together. It’s so unusual that Dean actually comments on it. He says, “When’s the last time we had a beer together anyway?” Sam, who doesn’t appear to appreciate the brotherly moment, doesn’t answer, but instead jerks his chin at the vampires he thinks he sees. So, what, like, you can tell someone’s a vampire just by looking at them now, Sam? In a bar full of people pretending to be vampires, you can spot the real ones? Pull the other ones, it’s got bells on. A vampire’s best strategy is fitting in with the local population, so I hardly think it’s likely, what Sam’s doing.”
