And I've been thinking a lot about it ever since. It IS somehow an in-vogue thing to hate on SPN. I'm not sure exactly what makes that acceptable to fandom at-large, but it is THERE and for sure there are people who believe that the only way to love SPN is to hate on it.
Now, certainly the show is not perfect for me 100 percent of the time. Absolutely not. But even when it isn't something that sends my squee into overdrive, I still love it.
And so, I have this to say.
I'm Wendy. I love SPN. I love the story and the characters. I love Jared and Jensen. I love the fandom and everyone I've met here. I love the enormous amount of creativity and talent that flows effortlessly through this group of people. I am so glad this show and this fandom are parts of my life.
How about you?
