Happy 28th Birthday Sammy!

May 2nd, 2011, is Sam's 28th Birthday!

Last year, I posted an On This Day In Supernatural History - Birthday Edition post. 

I figured for this year, I'd update it! 

Of course, as anyone reading my journal knows, the timeline on the show has gotten a bit messed up. So, for clarity sake, I'm going to post the years as they SHOULD be - which is, sadly, not necessarily what they are in show.

May 2nd (continued...)

2010 - We never find out when Swan Song takes place, but by my calculations, it was probably very close to Sam's 27th birthday. Perhaps Sam and Dean had one last chance to celebrate before Sam sacrificed himself. Perhaps it was already too late by the time Sam's birthday rolled around, and Dean raised a glass to his brother all alone in Cicero, Indiana....or perhaps the day got lost in the swirl of planning, and demon killing, and final goodbyes.
2011 - Similarly, we don't know when Dean discovered Sam's return. But in 2011, it's safe to say that Sam's body was topside, hunting with Samuel and perhaps seeing Dean for the first time in a long year. Meanwhile, Sam's soul was still suffering. (28th birthday)
2012 - A fully restored Sam and Dean celebrate Sam's birthday with Bobby in South Dakota after the events of My Heart Will Go On. (29th birthday).

And of course, no Sam's Birthday post would be complete without a screencap of our favourite second oldest Winchester:

My theory is that robo!Sam found himself drawn to Dean around his birthday, without really knowing why. The Djinn were just an excuse ;)

I like your theory! I think for all of robo!Sam's cold-heartedness, there were things so ingrained in Sam that they still came through - like robo!Sam's insistence that things were better when Dean was around, even though he didn't know why.

Yay! I'm glad you like the screencap! Ever since I realized how goodlooking JP is in real life, I've tried to find screencaps that at least PARTIALLY capture that. It is amazingly hard to do, that poor boy is the most unphotogenic Adonis that I have ever seen.

S3, so that's why he looks young ;) There's been some nice shots of him in S6 too, but they've been non-smiley, and I think he looks best when he's smiley.

I think they didn't attack his hair with a straightening iron as much in S3. They really got into that in S4, which always makes me laugh, because I hardly see the big badass hunter Sam Winchester using a straightening iron every morning :P

I actually like the sideburns, but I guess I'm just weird that way. :P

But yeah, I like Sam's hair when it's all curly and natural looking, rather than overly straightened - it makes him more adorable.

S1 bangs were cute when he was young, but I don't think they would suit him now.

Hey, 29 sounds like the best birthday yet! No mayhem, heartache of visits to heaven or hell!

And is that a dimple I see? :D

Yes, it is a dimple - for special cases, like NOT being in hell for his birthday, the dimple comes out ;)

But yes, the 29th birthday is definitely the best one from most recent years :)

Yes, seeing as how Dean is his platonic brotherly soulmate, I don't think the dimple would ever make an appearance if Dean were in trouble/being tortured.
