Things I am happy about:

~ Today is payday as well as being Friday! Whoo-hoo!

~ The Marie gown moves forward, but I still felt it was missing something. Gowns from that time tend to be extravagant with an emphasis on "extra". My trim just wasn't working for me all that fantastically. So this morning, I ordered some of this:

and these:

Now, I know sequins aren't exactly period. Nor is bullion embroidery and beading of this kind. But if it had been available, the fashionistas of the time totally would've used it! I got my inspiration for this after seeing the hella amazing costumes in Phantom - which were absolutely full of non-period sequins and the like. This is my rationale for putting this totally non-period trim on my dress, when really, I don't need a rationale. I'm not a purist anyway. I just want the look, and I want my dress to be fabulous, and gorgeous silver trim is way harder to find than gorgeous gold, for some reason.

~ SPN last night was more awesome than I can even say! Within the first ten minutes I was pausing it so I could gasp in delight and clap my hands - no, really. I was so not expecting Mary to have been the hunter! That is fantastic! And Dean! "Mom was a babe. And I am so going to hell. Again."

Also, was it just me, or did Mary look an awful lot like Jo, ala S2? On purpose, I wonder? As in, Dean kinda likes girls that remind him of the Mom he lost? Too deep for this show? Hmm.

The Impala! And wow, did they ever pick a guy for John that really looks like young!John.

Um. So, Sam really, truly is just like his Dad. And Dean? He's just like Grandpa Samuel. Wow. Well played, show, well played.

When Mary was telling Dean how the very worst thing she could ever imagine would be raising her children to this kind of life, I got a little teary right along with Dean. Oh, God. That's just...awful. Mary ends up creating the very thing she would've died to stop from happening...by making that deal, and then dying ten years later. And Dean - you could just see how absolutely crushed he was, hearing his Mom say that. Like, he's never really wanted the life anyway, and then to hear her say so bluntly that she would do anything to save her children from that? Oh, Dean. Jensen really did amazingly awesome in that scene.

It was just like watching dominoes fall, seeing how events played out to create the future the boys exist in. Best ep of the season so far? I think yes, other than the Jared lack. Though I hear he needed some time off to reshoot some things for a movie he was in, or something, so maybe that's why. So even as awesome as this was, nothing trumps the boys, together. Though Dean with young!John and young!Mary comes damn close.

~ Oh, yes. And yesterday saw a partial request for Nemesis from one of the agents I queried. This means the first thirty pages get sent in. The really amazing part is it came from one of the agents I assume will be rejections - one of the well established agents with a pretty full client list. I actually gasped in shock when I opened the e-mail, because I was so certain it would be a form rejection. I guess my query works. :)

A partial request? That's awesome! I'm so excited for you.

I haven't seen SPN yet because Dragonhubby and I watched the debate last night so I'm not peeking at the spoilers yet.:)

Thanks. :)

Ooooh, I think last night's ep was the best of the season so far. One of the best ever, certainly.

We'll probably watch it either tonight or tomorrow.:)

OMG! OMG! OMG! A request for more from an agent! OMG! *twirls you madly*

1) Congrats on the partial request! I think you're more than worth it-- so, smart agent. :)

2) Totally with you re: Supernatural. Though young!Mary reminded me most of Jess/Adrianne Palicki, from what little we saw of Jess, particularly in the face. I didn't even think of Jo, oddly.

I also thought about the whole djinn dream-thing from season 2. It felt like the car convo between Castiel and Dean was kind of acknowledging the similarity between this decision, and the one he made then, re: changing the future/not changing the future, but not really. And clearly there's a difference between the two situations, wherein WIWSNB was a hallucination. But. Don't know how I feel about that yet. :)

Awesome! And even more awesome that it's someone you weren't expecting to get one from. *super excited for you*

Yay on the partial request! That is awesome. Have I mentioned how much I love how hard working you are? Because, if I haven't, I'm saying it now. You make me want to chase after my own dreams and feel like I can accomplish them.

Yay on the request! That is amazing!

I am loving SPN SOOOOOO much this season. Last nights ep was amazing. Knocked my socks off good. Like you, I loved the scene with Dean and his Mom while she talks about how she never wants this for her family. It was heartbreaking, and Jenson played it perfectly. I am waiting with baited breath for the next episode.
