Our J2M Photos! Crop and photoshop away, my dear, dear friends! Just please send me pictures of your aftershots! I can’t wait to see what you all do with them! :)
It was quite lovely because by the time we did these shots we’d learned that you just have to kind of tell the guys what you want and where you want them so I kind of positioned everyone in such a way that I just took them and manhandled them almost to the spots where I wanted them. On the bottom photo, we put Misha in the middle and asked for everyone to hug and touch Misha and smile. I thought at the time that Jared was trying to unbutton his shirt or something- it was only after getting the photo that I realized that it looks like he was actually taking the opportunity to pinch Misha.
After we finished these photos, I took my last opportunity to talk to Misha and told him thanks and that I loved him and that he was the best and smiled at me as Jensen turned towards me and held up his hands in that “what about me?” cute gesture and I just grinned and pointed at Misha and said, “he’s my favorite.” It was actually pretty cute of Jensen though- I know I won’t win points with some by saying this but honestly it seems like having Misha there just lightens Jared and especially Jensen up a lot and they’re much more playful (to me) when he’s around. There was a lot of difference to me between the photo we took with just Jensen & Jared (which I didn’t buy the JPEG for and am not posting on my Tumblr because it turned out so horrible and I hate it) and the photo we took with J2M.
I never planned on getting a solo photo op with Richard or Rob honestly. I knew I had the one duo op with Richard and Matt that we were getting and that I’d like to have a photo op with Rob but probably wouldn’t have the money to do it so wasn’t planning on it, but I fell so much in love with these guys over the course of the weekend that by Sunday, I had to have photo ops with them both. My wonderful, amazing, awesome friend actually went without telling me and bought us both a photo op with Rob and surprised me with the tickets! She’s one of the most amazing people and I’m so lucky to have her and then I went later and bought a photo op for me with Richard. In the Richard photo op, I thanked him for making it such an awesome weekend and asked him for a big hug and it was well worth the money that I didn’t need to spend for that hug and photo with him. It ended up being one of my favorite photos of the weekend. He’s just super sweet and nice!
With the Rob photo, as I’ve said elsewhere, I totally fell in love with Rob Benedict over the course of this weekend. He’s just one of the sweetest and cutest humans ever and I just love him so damn much! So when I walked up to him, I told him that I’d just totally fallen in love with him and asked if I could have a big hug. He grinned so big at me and said Thanks and sure and wrapped me up in a really tight hug and just as Chris got ready to snap the picture Richard walked by and Rob was looking in the wrong direction so Chris took another picture. It seemed like Rob actually took a second to hug me even after the pictures were over with- he’s seriously just—-I could gush about him for days!
Later in the day, we picked up our photo ops and the only one I saw was the one with Rob and me where he’s not looking at the camera, which I still loved no matter what and was so happy with and definitely getting the JPEG for it.
Sunday night the last thing we did was go to the photo op room and buy our JPEG files from Chris. As we were waiting in line, I told my friend that I wanted to look around the room at the photos that were still there just to enjoy seeing other people’s pictures with these awesome guys too and as I looked I ran across the picture with Matt and Richard behind me and Rob hugging! I had no idea whatsoever that they had done that! I grabbed it and ran over to my friend squealing “That’s me! That’s me! I got photobombed!!!!” I’d just been thinking earlier in the day that people that get photobombed like that were so lucky and I wasn’t ever lucky enough for something like that to happen to me and then I found that picture and it was just amazing! It was just the best surprise because I didn’t even realize that photo was there, let alone that Matt and Richard were standing behind us in it! It was absolutely the perfect way to end the convention on a high note for me. Those guys totally made my day and if I ever do another convention, I may just go on Friday and just to see these three guys again!
I thought we had missed this photo op because they did the photo ops quicker than I expected them and I was in line for autographs already and things had gotten horribly out of schedule and behind schedule on that day and it was horrible and crazy and I was so upset that we’d missed getting a photo op that we paid for and really wanted. We went in the photo op room a bit later for another photo op and Matt and Richard were still in there and taking pictures with anyone who had missed their photo ops with them earlier! Apparently we weren’t the only ones thrown off by the schedule on this day- They were so great! It was super sweet of them to make sure everyone got their photo ops like this and I loved how our photo with them came out.
This photo op was done after the solo Misha photo ops so we positioned the guys where we wanted them and then I asked Richard if he would hug my back to which he replied “Hell yeah!” and then Misha grabbed me and hugged me and put his hands on my head and I told him he and Richard could play with each other instead because I figured they would do something adorable and cute together and I’d be surprised later. I didn’t know at the time what Misha had done there putting his hand over Richard’s face, but just after the picture was snapped Richard said to me: so you meant Misha to play with me, right? and I told him no, you can play with him too and he just grinned. They’re really too adorable. Makes me wish all the photo ops could last longer than what they do.
Misha was the main reason that I went to a SPN convention and I went in knowing that this might be my one and only shot to ever meet this wonderful man, so I went overboard with his photo ops and autographs. I bought two photo ops of my own and then went in half with a friend for two photo ops to take together. The one where I’m alone and he’s hugging me and has his hand in my hair I got an extra photo because my eyes were half closed in the first shot and Chris (the really great Creation photographer) took a 2nd photo. I ended up loving the first picture so much that I bought JPEGs for both of them. It looks like I’m smirking and gloating because I’m in Misha’s arms, lol. The picture where he’s holding my face and I’m holding his (and OMC it was heaven getting to stare into those baby blues even if it only lasted a second) was the last picture we took. After it I looked up at him and said thanks and he winked at me. Then he shouted at me and my friend for us to go to the city as we were walking away because in his M&G earlier I’d told him that I’d never been to NYC before and he said we had to go since we were going to be there an extra day.
The photo ops go by so quickly that you barely have time to pose, let alone actually absorb the fact that you are touching and hugging and even kissing (his cheek) Misha freaking Collins, but those few seconds are great and then later when you get the photo ops and see it and it’s just a total squee moment. I HATE pictures of myself and hate the way I look but I definitely love these photos.
My NJCon Scrapbook/Autograph Book
For my first (and maybe only) ever convention, I decided to put together a scrapbook/autograph book full of fan art and pictures to get the actors to sign at the convention. Being as I have no talent of my own, I set off to find other people and beg them to let me use their wonderful art in my book. These artists were all so, so wonderful and sweet. I was nervous about asking, but they were all just so awesome and nice and all agreed to let me use pictures of their art in my book. So first and foremost, huge thank you to all of these people!
Please copy and paste this link into a new tab and check out all of their art!——- file:///C:/Documents%20and%20Settings/All%20Users/Documents/Artists%20and%20Links.htm - I also had this list printed out and placed in the back of the book itself too.
Front Cover of the Book
This post is going to get quite long, so I’m going to put all the rest under a cut here. Be forewarned that I am a Destiel fan and a Team Free Will fan and a Misha/Cas fan and that bias shows itself in everything that I do.
I heard that you went to NJcon! SO LUCKY! Can you do a write up about your experience. Like Misha panel how was it the fans there, photo op line and J2M. I saw your pics on twitter. They are so adorable. Can I live through you pretending it was me. LOL
Hi Anon! Yes, I was at NJCon. It was great, but exhausting! I’ve been catching up on life since getting home. I’m not sure how much I can remember but I am going to start trying to post some stuff. I’ve got some photo ops and my autographs that I’m going to be posting soon.
If you have any specific questions, please feel free to ask and I’ll try to answer the best I can! <3 <3
Some Misha questions if you don't mind. What other show on air would you like to see Misha in? In what genre of acting would you like to see Misha in? Who would you like to see Misha act with male and female? As for the character Cas what do you like the best for him just a human life, angel, human with some angel juice, half human half angel or human hunter. And your reason why. You can chose more than 1 answer for each question. What would you like Team Free Will endgame to be & why? Have Fun!
Hi Anon! Thanks for the fun questions. :)
1- Currently I would LOVE to see Misha as an angel on SyFy’s new show called Dominion because the angels on there are totally badass and have huge beautiful badass wings and it is just a great show with a great cast and crew and I’d love to have Misha on there too. (And I’m also still praying that Dominion gets renewed for a second season cause it totally deserves it). Otherwise, I’d just love to see Misha get a role on a show that really appreciates him and deserves him.
2- I don’t really have a preference. I think Misha is such a brilliant actor and I’d truly love to see him in any genre out there.
3- John Barrowman- if only for the off-camera hi-jinks that I know the two of them would get up to. We’d get so much awesome stuff from John and his Misha-Man if they were on the same show or movie and the two of them are just so cute together!
4 & 5- I’m answering the last two questions together because they tie into one another. The way that I’ve always wanted SPN to end would be to have Sam end up with the girl (or guy-I’m not choosy about gender) of his dreams and get his college degree and do something that he loves to do and be happy. No matter what he does or where he goes, I’ve just always wanted Sam to be happy. For Dean and Cas, I’d love for them to be together (obviously- if you know me at all, you know that’s the number one thing that I want) and semi-retired hunters, meaning that they have a house close to wherever Sam is living but that they still go on hunts together occasionally too. I don’t care if Cas is angel or human or any combination of the two. And I don’t really care where they are or what they’re doing, I just want Dean & Cas to be together and all three of the living close by each other and all of them happy. Which I’ll never get with the show, of course, so that makes me even more grateful for fan fiction!
