I had the weirdest nightmare last night that I started watching the episodes of Supernatural I acquired back when I thought I'd watch it (I haven't yet) and I was concerned because I began shipping Sam/Dean.


My subconscious is a wonderful place. I have so many real world concerns, revolving around my future, the future of my students, some of the issues that exist in community, but my mind decides the mere possibility of me not being totally against fictional incest is the worst. thing. ever.

Don't ever give up the fight against imaginary fictional incest!

(It seriously squicks me, right? And even more so - I was reading a Fandom Secrets post where one of the secrets said since starting work with the RAINN foundation the OP could no longer ship Sam/Dean and there were people defending Wincest like it would actually be, y'know, okay. I understand that there is such a thing as consensual incest? But I don't think that necessarily makes it okay.)

It doesn't squick me as much as it used to, which I think is possibly what the dream was about --- my boundaries are shifting and part of me is not pleased. But it's still a giant 'do not go there' place for me, and yeah, it does concern me a little that this is one of the reasons me and wider fandom aren't always in accordance.

I'd still recommend watching it, though. I'm told it is possible to watch without shipping - and, for me, the draw is the hot men the seriously impressive long-term story arc. I'm watching S5 eps and having to immediately go back and watch parts of the first two seasons, because they've held off tying things up for that long. Which I daresay some find frustrating, but it just fills me with glee.

The relationship between Sam and Dean is a thing of beauty, whether you see it as Wincest or brothers in arms. Having said that, I do ship them, and it's not so long since I swore I never would. Mind you, I went on record a while back as being totally opposed to RPS (invasion of privacy, disrespectful etc) and now I'm in a completely different place. The internet, it corrupts. I'm reconciled to that now.

I've seen some episodes and, I'm sorry BK, but I was really put off by the acting.

I see. Well, all I can say is I'm saddened by your decision.

Eeeeeevil! :D

I shall try to watch it, I mean, I got interested enough to acquire! And I am kind of in love with Misha Collins, even though I haven't yet seen an ep with him in it.
