Fix Sam Virtual Season?

(Anonymous)
is there one? anyone interest in reading/writing/drawing one?

Re: Fix Sam Virtual Season?

Are you really asking this question on meme? Meme is only interested in wanking things to death, fyi.

The virtual season where Sam saves Dean from Purgatory? It doesn't exist AFAIK, but maybe it should.

Or even one where he tried.

If there were a virtual season about Sam joining Dean and Castiel in Purgatory for adventures!! and lots of monster society shit and appearances by my personal specific list of favorite dead monster characters, I would read the hell out of it and leave uncomfortably invested gushing comments.

Just putting that out there.

I love season 8 so far, but I would read the hell out of that fic! I'd love it if the show had gone down that route but I guess it's too risky and too expensive.

S8 could still go either way for me, but as with every single season of every show ever made, what it could have been excites me more than what I'm getting. It's definitely risky, but I don't know about expensive -- in theory it could just be shooting in the woods a lot, and I don't have the impression that that's costlier than shooting in cities (though I really don't know what the fuck I'm talking about, so, maybe). They might need to build some lean-tos, but they already build hotel rooms and stuff, and either build or find falling-apart shacks.

YES YES YES YES YES. This is everything I was going to put on my Christmas list in one meme comment.

I don't write or draw or do anything to contribute to such a virtual season but I would comment like whoa and pimp it for all the world to see.

:D

TBH, I'm instantly turned off by any virtual season whose primary purpose is to "fix" the role of a particular character. It always feels so E*G to me, with this underlying note of none of the other characters mattering at all because the only thing that's important is the one who is getting "fixed".

So, no. I don't know of any "fix Sam" VSes and I wouldn't be interested in them if they existed and I really don't think they should exist to begin with because they just feel so fanwank masturbatory to me.

But I do like the idea that another anon suggested with a VS where Sam goes to Purgatory. I'd love AU concepts like that! Where Sam is in Purgatory with Dean and Cas (and Benny can come too, I like him after last night). If the AU season played around with the idea that John and Mary are in Purgatory as well, that would be even better! And then they can all team up and save Adam.

So, S8 AUs are tops with me! S8 AUs that revolve solely around the idea of fixing Sam, eh. Not so much.

anon who proposed that

I have this weird thing where there are lots of dead humans, angels and demons who I love and find fascinating characters and hunger for more stories about, and yet I adamantly do not want to see them in Purgatory under any circumstances for purely worldbuilding reasons. I'm totally shooting myself in the wild fic speculation funtimes foot, but I just can't get over it.

I think what I'm saying here is that I envy you.

Re: Fix Sam Virtual Season?

And I think I've spoken to you about your dislike of that concept! We may have once had a discussion where we reluctantly concluded that, if demons died and went to Purgatory, that Ruby and Alistair might be able to show up but YED wouldn't, because YED was killed with the Colt? (Reluctantly on your part because you didn't want Ruby or Alistair to return at all, reluctantly on my part because I freaking love YED and want him back no matter what.)

Anyway, if that wasn't you, then can I ask what your worldbuilding reasons are? I can easily buy Purgatory as a catchall for anything that can't end up in Heaven or Hell. So, basically anything that isn't human could theoretically die and go to Purgatory which would include angels and demons. Likewise, if there was someone who died but didn't end up in Heaven or Hell, I could see them somehow slipping through the cracks and ending up in Purgatory (which is why John and Mary being there works for me).

I also like the theory that Purgatory and Underhill are connected somehow.

Re: Fix Sam Virtual Season?

DA - I think we've discussed this concept before on meme? Anyway, I love this idea, and I really do wish the show had gone this way.

I like the idea of Purgatory as Underhill, and Sam going to the Faeries to get help when his usual sources don't pan out. In my fantasy, they turn the Impala into a big black horse and Sam rides it into the underworld, to pick up Dean and Cas. But of course getting out is much harder than getting in! No Benny for me, please. :(

People they could meet in Purgatory: Lenore. Madison. Gordon Walker.

DA So you're just going to recycle everything Redemption Road did?
