SPN - Dean & Cas - smiling at each other
I see a lot of comments on LJs (both communities and individuals) about Dean's alcoholism. Is he really an alcoholic, even a "functioning" alcoholic? Granted that he's often seen to drink, especially hard liquor, just how much alcohol does he actually consume? I'm really hoping that someone out there has documented each time Dean was seen to take a drink (especially whiskey or other hard liquor), in the way that hells-half-acre has compiled a record of clothing worn on the show. (This is AWESOME, by the way!)

I'm already aware of these episodes: In 5x11, "Sam, Interrupted", Dean says that the number of drinks he has each week is "somewhere in the mid fifties". In 6x04, Lisa says he's drinking half a fifth a night. But, rather than rely on the characters' statements (even Dean's), I want to know how often we actually SEE him drinking. (For instance, in 7x04, "Defending Your Life", Dean goes to a bar and downs three double shots of scotch in fairly rapid succession. But how often does he actually do that?)

Of course, we only see "snapshots" of Dean's life, and even if he's seen to take a drink in every scene of every episode (which he isn't), that doesn't mean he's drinking every minute of every day. (For example, if Dean is seen to pour the last drink out of a bottle, as in 7x05, I won't assume that he's necessarily been drinking steadily since the bottle was opened.) So what about *effects*--i.e., how often have we seen Dean actually DRUNK, especially on a job, or badly hungover?

I've consulted Super-Wiki (which is where I got the episodes cited above). Is there any other source out there (individuals, database, whatever), that might have statistics on Dean, drinking generally on Supernatural, or anything remotely related? (I'm hoping for hard data, but I'd also like to hear your impressions/interpretations of this issue. And, of course, links to any meta on the subject.)

I'd love to go back and watch every episode, but I don't have the DVDs (yet)--or the time, right now (alas). I'm still not sure if this will lead to a fic or a meta, but it's been obsessing me lately. You guys are awesome, and all about the knowledge and understanding of Show, so I look forward to hearing from you. Thanks!!!

Did Castiel ever apologize to Sam about calling him an abomination back in Season 4?

If so, what ep?
Thinky thougts
Supernatural? Yeah. You know, the one where female characters go to die?

Um, wait.

Dean/Books OTP
I've now posted my season 6 timeline.

It's a good resource for fics, meta, and general interest!

Please read the disclaimer though, as there was a major continuity-error on the part of the writers this year and I've had to change the way I write the timeline slightly because of it.

I simply can't remember, and i don't currently have access to my season six episodes. But do we get any indication that he remembered hell?

Sam the Eagle
Hey, guys. :D

Do we know what kind of music Sam likes? We saw that he has an iPod at some point, but more than that I can't recall.

For that matter, has it ever been made clear what kind of music he doesn't like? He's expressed disdain for Dean's music, but I always had the impression that that was more "My culturally backwards brother with his narrow range of outdated music, put-upon sigh, eyeroll" than him particularly hating the music.

Thanks in advance for any findings! And, heck, feel free to share your head!canon on the topic. 8)

EDIT: For those interested, our findings:

ACCORDING TO CANON: Sam likes music more modern than mullet rock.
ACCORDING TO SAM'S IPOD: He likes Jason Manns.
ACCORDING TO JARED: He likes emo stuff like Death Cab for Cutie.

TO SUM UP: If you choose, for example, to say that Sam loves female indie artists more than all other sources of music, no one can pooh-pooh your fanon with authority unless Sam Winchester himself appears from another reality and says otherwise.

Dean/Books OTP
Hi Everybody,

Not sure whether or not it will be useful, or if it was just an effort to satisfy my own curiosity, but I've created a catalog that records the history of every article of clothing that Sam and Dean wear on their upper body during the series until the end of S5.

Check it out here: If Clothes Could Talk

11th-Jan-2011 05:54 pm - Creature resources?
Marvel Clint/Kate shoulder shooting
A while back, I ran into a website or board (not sure which it was) that was all about supernatural creatures. Back then, I thought, hey, that's a great source for research if you ever need a creature for a fic - and then failed to bookmark. *rolls eyes at self*

Naturally, now I DO need a creature for a fic, a special one with specific traits, and I can't manage to find any useful resources. Can anyone help me out with links? Thanks in advance! :)
10th-Jan-2011 11:44 pm - What if Dean had said yes to Michael?
I know that the angels promised 'heaven on earth' if Dean would become Michael's vessel and also that there would be many casualties in the war, but what do you think the world would be like for the post-apocalyptic survivors if Michael!Dean defeated Lucifer?

Any input at all would be appreciated, including links to any discussions on this topic.  And thanks so much in advance!
23rd-Nov-2010 06:58 pm - The truth about Heaven.....

I'm trying to remember when the boys found out the truth about Heaven. When they learned that Zach, et al, had been the ones behind everything and that they *wanted* Lucifer to rise.

Was it season four or five? An exact episode isn't necessary, but 'late in season four' or 'first couple eps of season five' would be fine.

Thank you!

ETA: Already answered! Whooooooosh! You guys are fast. :)
