Expensive Supernatural Forged,
We have by no means met, however all of you imply lots to me. Through the years, Supernatural has helped me discover consolation and braveness after I’ve wanted it essentially the most, and that would not have been doable with out you all. The checklist of exhibits that constantly convey me peace is brief, and maybe paradoxically, Supernatural is on that checklist. No matter I am coping with or therapeutic from, I all the time know I can rely on the Winchester boys — and the Supernatural universe as an entire — to make me really feel secure. I am unable to rely what number of nights I’ve fallen asleep to Sam and Dean conversing within the Impala, and whereas that won’t sound like a praise, belief me after I inform you that it’s.
I began watching the present through the summer time of 2015, and I used to be immediately a fan. I would just lately damaged up with a long run boyfriend who’d grown more and more abusive and poisonous over the course of almost 4 years. After the abuse I would skilled throughout that relationship — plus the undesirable experiences I would endured by the hands of different males and boys all through my life — it was therapeutic to see two male characters fully dedicated to defending folks, with extra good males becoming a member of their trigger alongside the best way.
As a bisexual girl, it was additionally extremely empowering to observe Felicia Day’s character, Charlie, be so visibly and unashamedly queer (and nerdy) over the course of the present. As somebody who was born and raised within the Bible Belt, I can attest that illustration like hers is not any small factor. Charlie’s braveness, authenticity, and distaste for authority will not be the rationale I got here out in an enormous method in 2016, but it surely actually did not damage.
I’ve additionally discovered myself impressed by the present throughout my travels. In my late twenties, I took my Chevy on a number of cross-country highway journeys throughout the US, and I could not assist however consider Supernatural every time. I am positive this was partly as a result of I’ve all the time obtained traditional rock giants — like Led Zeppelin and ACDC — in my Spotify queue, but it surely was additionally as a result of Supernatural captures the enjoyment of driving a automobile you’ve got grown to like and depend upon, whether or not you are crossing a number of state strains in pursuit of a objective otherwise you’re selecting up beer and pie from the shop. Sadly, I’ve needed to cancel a number of highway journeys in 2020, however watching Supernatural makes me really feel excited for the day I can criss-cross the nation once more.
I am unable to converse for your complete Supernatural fandom, and I am no psychic, however I am assured the present will perpetually be a supply of consolation and inspiration to everybody who enjoys it and identifies with its characters. I do know Supernatural will all the time be particular to me, and I am grateful to be a part of the group it is impressed.
Thanks all a lot for all of your exhausting work through the years, and in your ongoing dedication to the Supernatural household.
