Merlin: Finally Finished S3

I'd been sitting at 2 episodes left to S3 for quite sometime, but tonight I finished them off.

Watching Merlin always leaves me with a desire for h/c fic. It's like that show was BUILT for h/c - even with the amount it does have, it never seems like enough. 

Plot-bunnies come from the weirdest of places, but tonight, Merlin has put me in the mood for a story about a prince who falls in love with a whipping boy. I don't know if such a fic exists, and I'm certainly not going to write one...but I'm blaming Merlin completely on the desire to read such a thing.

It wouldn't actually work that well as a fic, because technically, the prince is SUPPOSED to fall in love with his whipping boy...but still. 

Maybe I just like saying "whipping boy"....yes, I think that's it. And this is coming from someone who doesn't even like d/s, sm, or any of those type of things.

I accidentally made another Supernatural fan

Starting towards the end of S6, my sister's boyfriend (J) started to watch Supernatural with us... I didn't really expect him to get into the show. In the beginning he only watched it with us occasionally, so I figured he didn't need to know that much about plot and whatnot.

Lately, I started noticing that we constantly had to wait for J to come over before we watched a new episode together. Then we had the following exchange one night...

The thing you have to understand is that my sister names her plants, not even like someone names their pets, but like someone names PEOPLE. One of her plants replicates itself, so she started two other plants from it, and said I could have one...and then I got a plant from my friend who was leaving town...so we had three plants without names.

Me: My plants don't have names. I should name them.
J: What are the other plants names?
Sister: Charlie Edward Plant, Peter Jenkins, and Jethro Tall.
Me: So, what should I name my big plant?
J: Jefferson Starship.
Me: Hahaha...actually, that works, it IS a hybrid...
J: *points to little seedling*...and that one can be Little Dean.
Sister: And his brother can be Little Sam!

So, that was my first hint...and then the other night, we were getting ready to watch last week's episode...

J: I'm really liking this Supernatural show, you know? It's like...the way they do it, it's funny, but you also take it seriously, even though you know, it could be ridiculous, but it never is...because they do it so well...and...I'm not explaining this well...
Me: Haha, I know what you mean.
J: And that Dean - he really cracks me up. *laughs*

And I guess I kind of forgot that he hadn't seen it from the beginning, because we watch the whole thing and at the end of it he was like...
J: Wait, so what was the deal with that guy?
Me: *eyebrow raised* Lucifer?
J: Oh, is that who he is? I couldn't remember.
Me: *boggles* Um, maybe I should loan you my DVDs.

So, there you go, my sister's boyfriend is now a Dean!boy who likes the show even though 50% of the time he has absolutely no idea what's going on.
