butterflykiki: (Jane Austen quote)
Yup, the time has come to cut my losses. I know many of you have worried about me, and my love for SPN, and felt that the relationship has been abusive for some time. Over the last year, I've come to agree with you. I am verklempt.

The last time I had to break up like this, it was with Smallville, and I never regretted that, and even went back to almost-watching in the last two-three seasons. But I didn't have to suffer through soooo much stupid (even though it means I missed out on Jensen Ackles as a football coach). Mostly that was about breaking up with Lex. He understood. He wasn't enjoying his life either.

I don't wanna break up with Dean and Castiel... but I'm mostly okay with breaking up with Sam by this point. I'm just exhausted, people! Totally wiped out by his self-righteousness. And bone-headedness. No amount of amusing bitch-faces is enough to compensate for his lecturing and poor life decisions at this point. Not even his expression when Crowley calls him "Moose."

I am also marveling at Dean's total stupid in the last season or so, but since I was mostly watching it with the sound off and making up dialogue, my love for him and Cas is somewhat more undamaged.

So: am rolling back, resetting, and creating a new start point from the end of season 8. As far as I'm concerned, that's when the series ended.

The guys get it. Really. 'Cause like Lex, they'd leave their lives if they could. (Oh holy wow would they ever.) I might have to rescue them in fic sometime in the future...

The last year's loss of so many good writers, the retreads, the retcons, the unfunny "funny" eps, the continuity contradictions; they're all my last straws of "can not remember why I'm still here", so. I will still be reading the fic. Still be vaguely following the plots. Possibly even watching eps where we have guaranteed Dean-shirtlessness.

But otherwise, I'm regretfully closing a chapter here....

Meanwhile, there's Orphan Black. HOW MUCH DO I LOVE THAT SHOW, HMM? THIIIIIIIIIIIS MUCH!
