This was so suggestive.
I really need NBC Constantine to have these scenes where John makes deals and/or agrees to help when wearing only underwear or blanket.
The panels have mostly been talked about already, and recapped, and I’m sure bootleg videos will be up soon*, so I won’t share too much about them…
Okay, that’s honestly because I was so caught up in it all that I totally forgot to take notes 99% of the time like I was planning to. Heh. Sorry about that.
Moments I did write down:
Rob Benedict is a were-squirrel. No context needed.
“I just try to do what I do, and fail better next time" ~Osric Chau
Linda Tran’s first tattoo was a venus-fly-trap on her inner thigh, according to Lauren Tom/crowd-consensus.
Alaina Huffman and Mark Sheppard’s panel had some truly amazing things to say about media representation and misogyny.
Someone asked about her thoughts on Abaddon as both a villain and a feminist icon, and they both shared some thoughts.
Alaina Huffman seemed kind of uncomfortable with the amount of violence and misogyny directed at her character, saying that it felt like ‘the writers were treating me as their personal therapy by putting me through all this stuff… They stabbed me, cut my head off, shot me, called me all these dirty names"…
Alaina also talked about how Abaddon was a bit of a ‘strong female character’, in the sense that she was strong, and not much else, and while that’s ‘fine sometimes’, she had to really work to bring out the layers in her character.
She cited Mother’s Little Helperand the interactions with Josie as being especially good there, but it was clear that she wished the character had more room (and time!) to grow and develop.
Also talked about Josie Sands herself, existing in the male dominated time and secret society, and ‘glass ceilings’, there….
Mark Sheppard also discussed the lack of good roles for female characters,and how it’s hard for women especially to get roles ‘with legs’ where the character has ‘unshallow motivations and ideals’, and they aren’t ‘just a pretty face’.
Also he mentioned lack of roles for ‘other groups of people’, and how you can’t fix problems with just adding one character for a little while, because no matter how well written they are, it’s just not enough.
Can’t remember everything else they said, except for the part where Alaina Huffman paused, and admitted that she had see a lot of critiques and feedback from fans about the show’s misogyny and sexism.
I think I cheered a little at that point, because she stated it so straight out and critically that I got really excited, because these are conversations that need to be had in fandom so much.
Um, what else…
Someone handed Misha freeze-dried worms during one of his panels…
Someone also asked him how he’d feel about getting a script where Dean and Cas went canon, but it was the last question of the panel, and he had NO time to answer thoughtfully or in-depth.
He made a bit of a joke about it, yes, but his exact final words were “I’d make myself as aerodynamic as possible, & deal with it.”
Another beautiful quote from Misha came out of a very silly question.
”I think Cas would approach the birthday party of a 9-year-old girl with same intensity as Apocalyptic events… The thing about Cas is that he doesn’t really have a barometer in the same way… To him, everything is important," which wow.
Jared Padalecki was legitimately thoughtful for a few brief moments in the J&J panel, and said ”As the quote goes, ‘Success is what happens when you’re busy doing something else’. Same thing applies to finding what you love doing and are passionate about.”
Yeahh, that’s all I remember, really.
*also, on a side note, I lost my file of the video of the Felicia Day panel from last VanCon, if anyone has a copy, I’d just about sell my soul to re-watch her answer to the question I asked of her, because she had an incredibly thoughtful and articulate response)…
yeah I know it’s not a metaphor or anything but stop talking you’re making me sad.
