Guess I won't feel so bad any more about the way my kids have wrecked the back of the car.

World Saved by Lego Piece, News at 11

(but seriously: unexpectedly, and for the first time in a long time, I actually feel like I have things to say about the episode. I'm going to watch it again, and maybe write them up over the weekend).

  • Looking forward to your review. :)
    • :) These things always sound much better in my head, but I'll see what I can do.

      Love the caps you did of the montage, btw--are you going to make icons? I'd love a weechester/lego icon *she says shamelessly*
  • World Saved by Lego Piece, News at 11

    I know! I loved the episode too much for coherent words, largely for that reason.

    Dean's legos... Sammy's army guys. The forces of heaven and hell could not withstand such opposition. :)
    • Oh, I know--I found some stuff about the ep. annoying, and some incredibly compelling--but that moment/idea was just so wonderful, and so quintessentially SPN!
  • Guess I won't feel so bad any more about the way my kids have wrecked the back of the car.

    Yes, maybe it's going to save the world!! Hey, by the way - don't your boys have the same age gap that Sam and Dean?
    • lol, they certainly think it's going to save the world--or at least bad things will happen if I disturb the weird stuff they have back there.

      My sons do have almost the exact same age gap as Sam and Dean, and every once in a while I muse on that...Being brothers seems to be a mysterious thing...
      • I read your post - it was cute! It's an interesting question, what triggers the feeling of protectiveness. I'm a big sister with two younger siblings, and I don't know if I have a special voice for them, but we're very close (more than most siblings I could observe) and I've always felt protective of them (a little too much, I've been told!) though we grew up in a stable household with two parents. But my parents had trouble having kids, and when I was born they'd been together for nine years and were thirty-six so they could have stopped with me but they didn't want me to be an only child. So I've always felt that my siblings were a gift to me or something... Lol. (look, it's me oversharing!)
        • So I've always felt that my siblings were a gift to me or something.
          awww! I think it must be that some people are born with that protectiveness--some people develop it over time. Goodness knows I feel more protective of my adult-with-a-family-of-his-own brother now than I ever did about him as a little kid. What a gift for your siblings that you've always felt that way towards them!
  • I loved it. Absolutely loved it.

    I look forward to what you have to say. :-)
    • I really liked the episode too--a lot more than I thought I would, given how I'd felt about the last couple of episodes. My ideas always sound much better in my head--but I'll try to get something out there--I haven't written SPN meta for ages--so it says something about the episode that it made me even want to!
  • Oooh, I will be looking forward to your thoughts. :)
    • still cogitating...it'll more lit crit-y than what I usually put up on lj, though--more about what I find interesting about spn than why I love it (and I do love it)....
  • The lego/toy soldier montage slayed me..

    Write your thoughts, hon - would love to read 'em!
    • I've watched it again, now, and it was even more slay-tastic the second time *sniff*

      Am trying to be a bit more formal than usual about my thoughts, so it may take me a couple of days....
