The other day, our friends over at Letters_to_Twilight blogged about the differences between LTT “Normal” and “not Normal.” As in what in the fandom is, erm, eccentric and funny vs. Krisbian krazy. Well, there is a lot more “normalness” going on in the other branches of the supe world too. Yes, we realize blogging about Supernatural shows and books is the epitome of “Normal” for 30 something, married, college educated women, but this goes beyond the “normal” amount of embarrassment in the name of humor for said blog.
Making this fictional vampire fraternity manip: Normal
- Normal vampire fraternity photoshop project
While making this manip: not Normal (EC: But laugh out loud funny.)
not Normal, even by Supe standards
Other example are as follows:
Receiving a text from EC that there is a “Lockwood” running for mayor on her local election ballot: Normal
EC: Just in case you are wondering werewolves don’t win in these parts. (Or maybe it was due to him being Republican and not named ‘Mason’.
Receiving comments from our blog readers that they thought of us when Alaric popped up shirtless with ice cream: not Normal but awesome!
EC: We wouldn’t be first thing that would come to MY mind. Instead…wouldn’t he be freezing eating ice cream this time of year. How about Hot Chocolate? A mug of tea or coffee? Chicken Noodle soup? I bet you thought I was going to say something else. No. ‘Cause I’m a lady.
Writing a post to Sam’s shirts: Normal, they’re the highlight of Merlottes!
Seeing Sam shirts while in Target and buying one for the sole reason of it being a Sam shirt: not Normal
EC: May I just point out that anything to do with Sam’s shirts is magical. That Dean and the other Sam on Supernatural wearing Sam shirts is also magical. Heroes (and Heroines) wear the Sam’s shirts. I have one myself. Feel no shame. On the other hand, if you decide to purchase a Stefan cartigan to wear with a 90’s grunge flannel then it’s intervention time.
Despising ab exercises just slightly less because Sookie and Eric and ALL of the wolves have to do them: semi normal
EC: Poor wolves. They also have to consume massive amounts of meat. * giggle * Don’t get mad. You know I meant hamburger.
Missing blue sweater that was donated to charity last year and now regretting it because it reminds one of the Viking sheriff: Not Normal
EC: I thought I got you an imaginary blue sweater with Viking ‘clothes hanger‘ for Christmas?
YES, I want to match, like bookends!
Purchasing items from the M.A.C. cosmetics “Tartan Tale Holiday Collection” for oneself because it comes in plaid packaging: Normal
Addressing the gift message “To: Sassenach”: Not Normal
Thinking of various Outlander series moments while listening to Mumford & Sons: Normal … maybe… both from the UK
Thinking the image on the Mumford & Sons girl tee is the “Je Suis Prest” stag: not Normal
Yup, it's a stretch...
EC: Realizing you really need to finish reading the first Outlander book, because you feel left out of all the converstions: Normal
EC: Instead watching GLEE reruns to sing along with Mr. Shue off key, reading fanfiction and falling asleep on the couch: Admitting I’m ridiculous.
Really wanting EC to finish Outlander as well: Normal
Really wanting EC to finish Outlander and read the rest so she understands the occasional throwing of the books: not Normal
Adorning Pocket Edward with a True Blood bottle and kilt because SWD cast Robward as Roger MacKenzie: Normal (really?)
Productive work time
Clipping out a party invitation with Snow White on it and having Pocket Edward hold it: Not normal
Pocket Eddie gets handsy
EC: Wishing you had a Pocket Eddie or at least a Barbie Edward to take funny pictures of: Not Normal for many reasons, like not being an 8 year old.
Calling your dogs “the Wolfpack” :Normal
Telling your dogs, “go get the moonstone” when you let them out: not Normal
Wanting a chocolate lab just so he can be named “Hoyt Fortenberry”: Normal.
Wanting a white shepherd, also with a True Blood name, just so they will have to say, “Eric Northman is ready for his bath” at the vet: Not normal.
EC: Wishing you had a dog, so you could do those things. Instead having a cat and realizing that only works if Sabrina the Teenage Witch was still on. But, next year’s True Blood is season of the witch… Maybe I can make weird comments to the cat then?: Yep. Not normal.
Seeing a kids’ movie because you loved the books as a child: Normal
EC: Aww…like Anne of Green Gables movies…
Coming up with the name Benspian while referring to him as “Scruffy McHottie” and having Narnia desktop wallpaper: not Normal
- You thought I’d have a snow white head on Edmund, didn’t you? C’mon, I’m not THAT Normal. *winks*
EC: That’s like if I had a giant poster of the guy who played, Gilbert on my wall. Saying things like, “That Anne was one lucky redhead!” and “I wish I lived in the 1900’s! Edward and Gilbert!” Not that I’ve…umm…said those things…umm…
Swooning over Gilbert... Normal
EC: Getting giddy when volvos are mentioned, because they are supposedly safe cars: Normal
Actually, getting excited because a fictional character (you know which one) drives one: Not Normal
REALLY wanting the silver one: Not, Not Normal
Doing it. because a certain Ian Somerhalder tweets it: Tempting, but really we should be doing it anyway
I do green things, and so does EC... Normal
Putting off wrapping presents: Normal
Putting off wrapping presents to search for good Ian pics: hell yes, that’s NORMAL.
Here it is some of our normal/not normalness for all of you! If we ever start saying outlandish things like actors of these shows are our BEST friends or we are going to put up posters of them all over our kitchens, you may get us professional help. :0)
