Gunpoint [Dean/Bela]

Explosive Material (1/1)

Title: Explosive Material
Fandom: Supernatural
Characters: Dean Winchester/Bela Talbot
Word Count: 2,410
Rating: PG-13
Spoilers: The entirety of season 3, up through and including episode 3.15, "Time is on My Side"
Summary:We are odd compounds full of explosive material to which circumstances may at any time apply a spark to create results undreamed of.
Other: Having been fascinated by the possibility of exploring what may have resulted in some bastardized version of a relationship between Dean and Bela, I chose them as my pairing for the 1sentence challenge. 50 prompts, 1 sentence each, all outlining the way that I think they may have eventually come together if given the opportunity. It begins in canon and is woven back into canon at the end, but most of what lies in between is nothing but me taking great liberties with two characters I can't claim as my own. I also can't claim anything particularly linear about what is not so much a story as it is snapshots of a story that was never told.

Creation Salute to Supernatural: Chicago '08

So, I woke up today and realized that it's been exactly two weeks since Chicago and my second succession of con adventures and that I still have said absolutely nothing about it. Fail. Epic fail.

The problem is that I've been putting reports of the weekend off thus far because I really wanted to be as thorough as I was when I did my reports of L.A. Con back in March's dawned on me that I'm simply never going to get a chance to do that. In March I wasn't working, I wasn't in school, I wasn't doing anything and I had a lot of time to sit around and ramble about my fangirl exploits and though I still have a fair amount of time to sit around and do nothing, I'm too lazy to do that in-depth thing. Besides that, the sleep that weekend was minimal at best and all of the days sort of ended up running together. I can barely remember what happened and when!

But, you know, you all don't really care to hear all the little details about what I did in Chicago unless they have to do with the super fun con guests, do you? Naaaah. You want J2 stories! And pictures! At least, that's what I want when I read other con reports, so I'm operating on the assumption that one big, giant pic spam and some key tales will be enough to bring those who are interested up to speed on the amazing time that I had and to quell this weird self-reproach that I have for being so goddamn lazy. Besides that, there are about a hundred other people who have thoroughly detailed all of the Q&A panels and the events of the weekend and who have shared pictures and videos. At least I've had all of my pictures from the Q&A panels uploaded for your viewing pleasure for quite some time. If you missed those, you can find them all here. Enjoy!

And now? On to the pictures that (almost) chronologically tell the story of the weekend of November 14th-16th 2008. Sigh. So tiring but so much fun.

ETA: If this appears on your flist twice, I apologize! When I posted it originally I somehow put it on a filter and now that I've taken it off, I don't know how that will effect its placement on my friends' friend pages!

Chicago Con '08 Photos

I know, I know, I suck! I've been home from Chicago since very late Monday night, but didn't get back from Rachel's house in Pittsburgh until Tuesday morning and had to go straight to school. Since then I've had class every day (not to mention that in those classes, I had baking proficiencies, a mid-term and a written unit final exam) and in the evenings I've had homework or have just been too damn tired to be efficient. I've been weeding through the few hundred photos I took at the con for days now, rotating and resizing as I go, and I'm finally done! A lot of them could probably use some color adjustment since the light in the hotel is really horrible, but they came out nice and clear (taken from Row B in the ballroom and the very first table at breakfast) and that's what I wanted!

Anyway, here are links to all of the individual albums. Feel free to share any of these pictures and/or use them in any way you see fit, as long as you credit me, preferably by LJ username. Because I certainly wasn't going to tag or watermark all of these! So...enjoy! And please excuse the slapdash quality of these little preview pictures. It was just so that you could garner an idea about what the pictures look like without clicking the links :)

Do you want unimportant details? Sure you do!

Morning from Chicago, flist! It's not even 9:30 in the morning here and we didn't go to bed until 5:00 in the morning (YEAH, I KNOW, RIGHT?) but somehow...we are all awake. "We" being my wonderful band of crazies, notyourstarx0, herowlness and sarah_p! After the four of us having converged here at the Wyndham O'Hare from three different states entirely, you would think that we would have all sacked out early and slept late, but...OH NO. We're currently in the process of showering and getting dressed and that leaves time to finally update you all and say hey!

Last night, Sarah and Lizzy got in to our hotel at a respectable 7:00 or so p.m. but Rachel and I didn't taxi into O'Hare until quarter of midnight. Luckily, we were able to catch a shuttle with relative ease and in spite of tromping through the rain, we made it here intact at around 12:30 (or perhaps later, says Sarah, "No, it was around 1!") and were able to come straight up to our suite (bedroom with two beds and a bathroom, adjoined to a living room with an unstocked bar and another bathroom!) and and skip the check-in process entirely. Naturally, Lizzy was asleep and Sarah was reading...some book for school that she's never going to touch again this weekend now that we're all here.

Though we were vastly unproductive and loud for well over an hour, we did settle down eventually for a rousing round of Circle of Death. Which sounds a lot more ominous than it is. Quell your fast-rising mental images of anything that involves sharp weapons or bloodshed and instead picture us sitting in a circle on the floor and playing a card game (the cards are fanned in a circle, each person draws a card and each card has its own mini-game or set of rules) drinking cocktails of Hawaiian Punch & vodka, Sierra Mist & Strawberry Schnapps-something-something and Pepsi & Captain Morgan. More craziness definitely ensued. Such as the repeated use of the word "pa-whore" and phrase, "tab A, slot B," having to divulge a Jared and/or Jensen sexual fantasy before every drink and a slightly drunken reenactment of a certain dances to a certain Survivor song. We were supposed to be watching last night's episode of SPN after all of this (Lizzy got right on downloading it for Rachel and I since we missed it and she and Sarah were lucky enough to see it while here D:) but the boozin' interfered and we eventually called it a very, very late night in favor of passing out straight away.

There is the abridged version of what I've been doing up until right now. And now that you know everything you never needed to know, I can get to the point and say, yeah, I'm here, I'm GREAT, I love these girls and I'm so excited for the rest of the weekend! And with that note, I'm going to leave you so that I can take my shower and we can go register and FINALLY get something to eat! More from me later, hope you're all having a lovely Friday, wherever you are!

ETA: This is sarah_p, hijacking Erin's journal while she's brushing her teeth...BECAUSE I CAN. I would like to clarify that while the other girls might have spent the ENTIRE EVENING mocking my choice of Jensen and Jared sexual fantasies, that SARAN WRAP is a totally valid form of sexy expression, and THEY JUST WISH THEY HAD THOUGHT OF IT FIRST.

This ends this special interruption--please return to doing whatever you were doing in Erin's journal.
