SPN: Sam's Bright Smile

Harley

Everyone knows Jared loves his dogs. From what I've heard, everyone who meets those dogs loves them too! Jared tweeted last night that Harley lost his battle with cancer. I remember Jared talking once about how when he needed to cry on set, he would think about something happening to his dogs. It's just heartbreaking to me.

At the 2008 Dallas con, I talked to Jared briefly about his dogs. It remains one of my all-time fave Jared moments. Here it is again, just C&Ped from the original post*:


Jared did autographs after the panel and I had him sign a picture of him with his dogs.

I asked him if Harley's knee surgery was for a torn ACL. He first said yes but then corrected himself that ACL was the wrong term. I threw in that my dog Val has had ACL surgery done on both her back knees. He began to explain dog anatomy to me (and was quite knowledgeable about it too!) and the words anterior, posterior, cruciate and, uhm, others were used. I think my eyes glazed a little and he laughed and stopped.

I asked how Harley was recovering and he said fine but sometimes if they went on a long run together then Harley would limp for about a day after. He was quick to add that Harley was FINE after that and that it was nothing to worry about.

He gestured to the picture and said that Harley had horse legs and that he weighed 105 pounds. And was kinda dumb. Big and dumb. He sort of laughed and was like "there's just no other way to say it!"

He said he missed the dogs so much and that he hadn't seen them in two weeks. I asked where they were and he said with his parents in San Antonio. I asked when he'd get to see the dogs next and his face lit up as he said "Tuesday!" I love that he knew the exact date. I thanked him for his time and moved on.

Sunday Recs: A whole mess of stuff

Yesterday something bit me on my lower lip. I assumed it was a mosquito (it happened at work, so I feel confident I would have noticed if like, a spider or something was crawling on my face.) Anyway, my lover lip has swelled up about twice normal size. It HURTS. I am so unamused and I have no idea what to do about it. It looks so gross.

Today I am going to cook everything that exists, mainline the first four episodes of Psych that I still have not seen, and read some fic. If my lip wasn't throbbing I'd also drink some tea but I can't drink very well with it all swollen up. ARGH.

Anywhoo.

Recs.

  • You Are A Fever by obstinatrix and mistyzeo -- (Jared/Jensen, NC-17, 5,470 words) -- Sequel to Sure to Lure Someone Bad. Before he met Jared, Jensen used to think all Alphas were the same: bossy, arrogant, cocky. But the first time after Jensen’s heat that Jensen rolled them over, put his hand between Jared’s legs, and said, "Your turn," he had Jared panting and squirming and spreading his knees, begging Jensen to stop teasing and fuck him already.

  • You Don’t Need Matches to Burn by dephigravity -- (Jared/Jensen, NC-17, 3,100 words) -- Jensen’s never been one for camping, and Jared’s a pro at roughing it.

  • Dean Winchester's Handwriting by thegeminisage -- Downloadable font that looks like Dean's handwriting. SO COOL.

  • Die Verevulfkindereier by balefully, beckaandzac, rivers_bend, errant_jane, itsthedetails and wendy -- This was our entry for Bad Fic Idol at Wincon this year. I'm pretty sure it makes no sense to anyone, but I still find it HILARIOUS. Also hilarious? The way it was written. We each wrote a 100 word drabble AU. Then we put them all together, numbered the paragraphs, chose numbers at random, and reordered the shuffled mess into this. I know, right???

  • J-Rod Chicon Q&A -- This is a recap from Jared's meet and greet in Chicago, and I love it!

  • Do Some Good and Win a Tweet from Supernatural Jared Padalecki

  • Wincon contact information and social media links for...everything. Check it out!


    Does anyone have a downloadable version of that SPN motel room/Sam running outtake? I would like to keep that and...*hands* Let me know if you have a shareable copy! PLEASE!
