Whiskey John

What you'll find here? Strictly Gen. Much of it pre-series; virtually all of it canon-based.
All of it about family. Often with monsters. None of them (the monsters) ever being John.

Yeah, yeah. My freaking fic list got to long for the character limits *headdesk* so I'm having to put the meta links in a separate post. Sheesh.

For those of you who are wondering if I am still alive: Yes. I am.

For those of you who are wondering if I will EVER get around to finishing Skin Deep and/or To Everything a Season: Yes. I will.

For those of you who are wondering when in the fuck that might possibly be: I have no fucking idea. But it will get done.

For those of you who are wondering if I'm still watching SPN: Yes. I am. I just don't really have much to say about it. But I'm less angry than I was with it and am actually enjoying most of what I watch in that verse these days. Mostly.

For those of you who are wondering if I read my comments when I haven't responded to them: Yes. I do. All of them. And I appreciate every one of them. I'm sorry I've been so negligent in responding to them as of late. See "trying ass" explanation below.

For those of you who are wondering why the fuck I'm not writing right now: My mother died. I'm hip deep in a new business start-up. And, did I mention, my mother died.

For those of you who are wondering if I will start writing again any time soon, on this journal or elsewhere: David's new series was picked up. So yes. I will.

For those of you who are wondering if The Conjuring is scary: Yes. It is.

For those of you who are wondering if I still love John Winchester and/or JDM as much as I used to: Really?!?!? You're wondering that? I would think it goes without saying, but just in case it doesn't: I love John Winchester just as much as I ever did. I love JDM more.

For those of you who are wondering if I will EVER get my ass in gear and finish my response to that email I've been promising to respond to, or get that thing in the mail that I owe you, or get that gift I got for you back IN FEBRUARY in the mail: Yes to all 3. I'm an ass, but I'm a trying ass. Sorry.

For those of you who are wondering if I will EVER send them the signed book I've owed them since it was published: I found it the other day. With the inscription I planned to write on it on a piece of paper inside it. Did I mention I'm an ass, but a trying one? I will send it soon ... soon being a relative term, as I'm sure you have already figured out. Love you. Think about you often. And it was Lowes, not Home Depot, ya loser. ;)

For those of you who are wondering why I'm telling y'all all this: I'm not. I'm only telling the people who have been wondering.

It breaks my heart to be the bearer of unexpected and tragic news: yesterday. May 8th, my good friend and fellow JD/Papa Winchester nut jdsgirlbev passed away. She has been battling some severe health issues over the last month, but the doctors were prevailing ... until they weren't.

I don't have a great deal to say at this moment. I'm still reeling from the news. I will say, however, that Bev was a good person with a kind heart and a passionate soul. She was the first person I ran into in SPN fandom who both loved John as deeply and was as passionately outraged at his vilification by the fandom (this was back when the show didn't vilify him, but rather celebrated him as the ferocious, flawed, loving and misunderstood father and man he was/is) as I do/am/continue to be. We spent hours discussing the deplorably wrong-headed thinking regarding John over the years, and she was both John and JD's most vocal advocate in any and every forum she ever ran across (and she ran across a LOT of them!).

And while John was, and always will be, her favorite (as he is, and always will be, mine); she was equally as passionate about JD himself.

I remember, in particular, the war we fought together, her in the lead with a cudgel of words and me bringing up the rear with a razor of wit, over JD's casting as The Comedian in Watchmen. More than one unsuspecting fanboy found himself in deep, deep shit after unwisely breaking bad online over the "travesty" of casting "Denny Duquette" as the anti-hero of all time, Eddie Blake. Virtual blood was shed over that wrongheaded poppycock more than once --- Bev would scour the internet LOOKING for the fight, not to create conflict, but rather to stumble the kind of demoralizing momentum such uninformed trash talk can create against an actor cast against perceived type in a much beloved role --- and none could have been prouder than Bev when JD lived up to and beyond her passionate advocacy of his predominantly untapped genius for complex antiheroes.

Bev was so passionate, in fact, in her defense of JD and Papa John against any and all comers that she once chided the man himself. In the early days, before fame dictated the need for a lower profile, Bev laid into someone on Facebook representing himself as JD. She told this cheeky fellow he should be ashamed of himself and get a life ... unless he really was JD, in which case, never mind. As it turned out, he was ... was really JD and was charmed by her aggressive defense of him even at the risk of offending him. He responded with a thank you and a friend request. I think that may have been Bev's favorite story: she laughed at herself every time she told it.

I suppose I have more to say about Bev than I thought, even now, in the midst of this devastating news. And if I do, it's because Bev was memorable. She was bold and opinionated and often the antithesis of politically correct. And she was my friend. Still is my friend. I will miss her terribly. Miss chatting with her about life, love, writing and any other damn thing that crossed our minds. Miss tilting at windmills with her in defense of John Winchester, Eddie Blake and JD himself. Miss her humor and her rash statements and her eat-your-face passion on a multitude of subject, but especially John. Always John.

But most of all, I will miss her kindness. Her goodness. Her insistence on being there thru the hard times, always sticking out a hand to help if she even suspected you might need one. Because jdsgirlbev was one of the good ones, at fandom and at life, and we are all the lesser for her passing.

Goodby, my friend. I will miss you always.

(And thank you for letting us know, Andrew. We spoke of you often and I'm sure you know exactly how much you meant to her. But if you don't, you did. The world.)

For Bev, because she loved it:

This, amongst other reasons, is why I married my husband:

Last night, as we are catching up on SPN episodes missed while I was out of town, Henry tells the boys, "I didn't know my son as a man, but having met you two, I know I would have been proud of him," and my husband, who is on his way out of the living room to get a Popsicle, says to me: "It was nice of Dean not to tell him that Bobby's the one who actually raised them."

I love that man. Truly, I do.

Thank you to everyone who has emailed, DMed, PMed, prayed for, called, visited or sent cards or flowers to me and mine over the past month. Your kind words and thoughtful gestures of support have meant the world. I'm finally back home now and doing my best to dig through the backlog of a neglected life in the living. With any luck, I should be back online to chat and otherwise carry on sometime in the near future. Until then, thank you and know that I appreciate each and every contact y'all have made even when events have conspired to prevent me from responding on an individual basis.

For those of you who know why I've been offline for the last 9 months (and also for those of you who don't but might be interested), my mother passed away last night. Never a kinder, gentler, more loving woman born. I am bereft ... but also grateful. Grateful to have been blessed by her love in the first place. Grateful to have been afforded the chance to return that love in kind as we walked the long, painful journey home together.
