Gender Deaths Link and Mark Sheppard is Awesome

First: One of my favourite can of worms - someone did a count of death in Supernatural based on gender! It's VERY INTERESTING. Some of you may remember that I wanted to do something similar a couple of months ago, except with sexual-assault (either real or metaphoric), but decided that I did not want to bring that kind of wrath down on myself. Likewise, I have made a point not to read the comments that these guys received on this lovely death-count. I find numbers interesting, but I know that there is more to interpretation and context than numbers alone.

Second: Mark Sheppard is awesome.

I really hope he gets added to VanCon at the last minute or something, because I would love to meet him....plus he's been on Doctor Who! It's odd, but since Supernatural is filmed where I live, it doesn't feel as...impossible...to meet the actors. To me though, Doctor Who is something that just doesn't intersect with real-life. So, yeah, not that I can ever think of questions at Cons, but if Mark Sheppard did come, I would totally ask him SOMETHING about Doctor Who.

Anywho...what I really want to talk about is how awesome this little speech he gave at RisingCon is. Link here, and I'll also embed it below. I know that a section of it sort of encourages the petitions and everything that annoy the crap out of me, but in general, it's just a very heartfelt speech about how the conventions are just as loved and important to the actors as they are to the fans...
