Birthday Thanks & Asylum 12  
Friends, Romans, Fl*sters, how are we all tonight?  Are we cowering in corners, hyperventilating with fear all because it’s the season 9 finale? Well before I join you in the various prayer circles, and collective fan girl gibbering, I’m here to say thank you for my birthday gifts and messages and tell you a little about Asylum 12.

To start with I was overjoyed with messages and my V-Gifts from somer, saltandburnboys and joliebon and the amazing birthday posts by milly_gal and dizzojay.  Thank you all so much for your lovely wishes and kind thoughts.

Now onto Asylum 12, what can you say about the wonderful, wacky, maelstrom of insanity that is a Rogue Events convention. In between running around like a maniac getting photographs and autographs, I actually managed to see a few panels. The panels as usual were a mix of well thought out, and cringe inducing questions.

 I especially enjoyed Jared’s answer concerning Sam’s verbal beat down of Dean in The Purge. Jared said he felt Sam was lying to Dean, when he said he wouldn’t try to save him under the same circumstances. Jared said Sam was lashing out to hurt Dean and that as family we always know what weapons to bring to bear for maximum damage. That he was certain if it came down to it, Sam would save his brother.  Then of course he teased us by promising the finale is going to break our hearts, the sod.

On a lighter note during Misha’s panel he told us that Jared and Jensen had made him laugh so much during a particular scene.  That in the end the director had them thrown off set so Misha could finish it, and then Jensen apologized to him and Jared didn’t.  Also Misha told us about something in the script for Stairway to Heaven.  In the first read through the ‘fake’ heaven we saw Castiel and Sam enter, looked a little different in Misha’s words, “The room was supposed to be decorated in pictures of nude men all with Jensen’s face on them.” He then nearly had heart failure, yelling the network would never allow it, and then the writer had hysterics.  See it’s not just Jared and Jensen who wind Misha up.  But be honest what we wouldn’t have given to see ‘that’ version of Cas’ heaven.

As forewarned by dizzojay Sebastian’s panel was the stuff of migraines, and AJ and Osric were just so much fun together. And yes I happen to think Amanda Tapping may just be the single most awesome woman I’ve ever encountered, I mean come on we’re talking Sam Carter here *G*.  And I would love her to direct an episode of Supernatural, as well as seeing her act with David Tennant who she seems to have a bit of a crush on.

But the best thing about the con as always were the people, from the long suffering but still up beat fan girls drifting from queue to queue.  To the three amazing ladies, who put up with the small troll like creature who followed then around wittering at them.  In no particular order of awesomeness they are amberdreams edina_clouds128 and last but not least dizzojay.

I had a brilliant time with them, laughing, rambling and watching episodes.  Dizzo was very impressed with my ability to remember episodes numbers, and these lovely ladies also brought me a birthday present! I’m now the proud owner of a Dean Winchester purse, I can’t thank them enough for their kindness.

Now before I inflict my convention pictures on you poor, poor people I have a confession to make. I’ve brought a ticket for Asylum 14, so here we go again with the battle to get Wayne to cough up my ticket. I never learn do I? So roll on next May, I’m ready to party again!

Let's begin with the wonderful Amanda, who knew she was so tall?


 Now onto to Osric who cosplayed as someone from Night vale, sorry I'm afraid I didn't know the character.


 Then there was AJ & Travis!  Yes Travis was there in spirit on AJ's phone.


Of course I had to have a picture with Lucifer!


 Also me and Dizzo were lucky enough to meet the legend that is Cliff, what an absolute sweetheart.


Finally, the man, the myth, the moose himself.....Jared Padalecki!!!!!!

Ye gods that man is tall, and gorgeous!

By the way i will catch up with commenting soon, and then look out I'm thinking about writing again.  YOU'VE BEEN WARNED!
