Ah, Supernatural fandom, where the men are men, the women are hormonal, the brothers fuck each other and everyone has a dog cock. As we all know from episode 45 there's a whole lot of real-person fanfiction (henceforth RPF) where Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki (henceforth J2) are in love/fucking/what-have-you. However, did you know that there is a really, really big contingent of over-invested fans (henceforth "tinhats") who believe the RPF to the point where they believe that there is a giant, decade-spanning, malevolent conspiracy by the CW to keep the general public blind to their love? And that they, the tinhats are the only ones who can see through the facade to this purest of all loves between two mid-list TV actors? Of course you did, because you post here and you know how this kind of thing goes in Internet fandom. As such, I am here to share the Livejournal site spn_gossip, a positive hotbed of this sort of crazy, with the rest of you atrocity tourists. As I elaborated recently I doubt this would make for good episode material due to its highly esoteric and inaccessible nature to the layman but I couldn't in good conscience deny the entertainment to any of you with a few hours to kill, so here goes.Speak the Truth:
A Storify of the two palling around with in-depth annotations of how every single gesture and touch absolutely screams "we're madly in love and sending secret messages about it to the fans." It also goes into a lot of detail about the conspiracies surrounding their respective wives, Genevieve Padalecki and Daneel Ackles-Harris, and how those two are evil beards who only exist for the CW to disguise the true, underlying passion of J2 with studied, boring heteronormativity. As you might imagine, these ladies get a lot of heat 'round these parts.
And now, some links to regular posts. There is one hell of a backlog for this community so I honestly just ended up cherry-picking stuff at random. It doesn't help that Livejournal's search function is so, soooooo bad these days, but even so finding batshit insanity is like playing darts in a room wallpapered with dartboards.As a "crazy hat" this pisses me off:
I know celebrity tweets are held up to a certain degree of public scrutiny that most mundane humans' aren't, but holy shit, the over-investment.And jeez, the J/G marriage must be worse than even I imagine! (And I think it's pretty bad. These two do not like each other at all.)
ITK, incidentally, is an acronym for "in the know," referring to those who supposedly have inside information about the workings of J2. No actual concrete data exists on them, obviously, but they're all taken for granted to exist.You said it yourself--he's there to live in Jensen's house. And keep Jensen's beard from causing trouble out of boredom. For all we know Jensen can't stand the leech but he's the only one who can tolerate DH for any length of time.
Jensen starts a wine label with his brother-in-law, whining ensues.LOL, so now her first name and last name are fake and a joke. Awethum, lol.
Following Genevieve Padalecki neé Cortese's marriage to Jared, the brave truth-seers of spn_gossip speculate about the reality of her marriage.
And truly, this is only the tip of the iceberg. If I find a way to recover some of the really
good shit I've seen there in the past I'll post a few updates in coming weeks.
