Note Re: Supernatural Season 9 Reaction posts.
I still haven't watched most of it and I'm not going to be able to watch it before the Retrospective or Season 10 premiere, so I'll be catching up as I can, no surprise.

For some reason, despite staying away from LJ and all SPN fandom spaces, and not even watching TV or seeing commercials for season 9 episodes, I still know far too much about story developments in Season 9. I don't even remember how I heard about all this, mostly side-bars on unrelated sites (I blame Google's targeted advertising) and mentions in otherwise non-SPN locations. Anyway, here is a rundown of everything I know or think I know about Season 9 before watching it.

[Spoiler (click to open)]
-Castiel steals (or wins in a fight or something) another angel's Grace and repowers himself kind of vampire-like, but not before he does a lot of silly human tricks like working in a convenience store.
-Mama Tran is alive and getting tortured somewhere, and is still a BAMF.
-Crowley is around as a kind of a prisoner for most of it, and works with the boys against Abbadon.
-Abbadon vs Crowley, demon factions, etc
-Angel factions trying to get back to/take over Heaven
-Metatron starts writing the Word himself and screws everybody over.
-Dean becomes a demon or maybe a Knight of Hell in the end.
-Bad things happen to Sam again some more
-Charley and Garth and Jodie are around doing things.
-More Men of Letters stuff (yay!)
-One episode, Dean is a dog, or thinks he's a dog.
-The angel inside Sam is not who he says he is and is in fact some nasty angel named Gadreel working for Metatron who basically holds Sam's body and mind hostage for parts of the season. (Pretty much no surprise on that)
-Kevin is killed by the angel inside Sam, and haunts the Bat Cave before Linda Tran takes him home. Between one event and the other there is boatloads of Winchester angst.
-Crack involving Oz of the Wizard of Oz being a real thing.
-Vampire culture, and a backdoor pilot episode called 'Bloodlines' about monster families running Chicago that didn't do so well.
-One of the episode titles is very similar to a long-standing WIP I have (that I swear I will eventually continue!) but I doubt theirs is a Doctor Who crossover.
-Mark of Cain. (Surprised the show hadn't quite gone there yet, what with brothers and all)
-There's a knife (possibly called the First Blade) that's the only thing that can kill Abbadon
-Diet pills and Slenderman. Not at the same time though.
-Garth might have married a werewolf, but that also might be a load of crap. However, if it was gonna be anyone, it'd be Garth.

No worries by the way about any of that coming from LJ posts or uncut spoilers. I've been mostly off LJ SPN fan-spaces since last year, and the moratorium period for episode spoilers was long over ages ago, and like I said, most of these were from unrelated side-bar articles.

Anyway. Given I know all that, doing full reaction posts isn't feasible. So much of the posts I do is theorizing about things as they develop in episode, and when I already know what's going to happen, I can't theorize. Knowing things in advance makes me disconnect from actively watching episodes. My theorizing brain shuts off and passively waits for the stuff I know is gonna happen, and 'oh this is the bit where that thing I know about happens' constantly makes for really dull writing and reading. :-P

So, while I will be watching season 9 and I will be posting stuff about it as I go, the stuff I post will be a lot shorter, possibly even several episodes per post.

I missed your posts...I used to look forward to your guesses and how you were so good at guessing!

I look forward to seeing you back on LJ, and even if you aren't doing the same kind of posts, I will still enjoy your delightful humor!

It's just hard to make guesses when I already know where things are going. XD

I'm sure I'll be posting something, and thanks for the compliment!

It's going to be a hard and fast catchup even just straight-up watching it, with all the RL crap going on. Not sure what I might do when I get caught up to season 10, again, life is quite chaotic right now, but I doubt there will be anything big from me reactions wise for Supernatural for a while. :-/
