Guest Post: Why I'm A Sam-Girl

Hi! I got asked by my beautiful and talented babysister to write in her blog as a guest.
I am everybit the nerd she is (who do you think introduced her to the world of fangirling?)
Also, my husband is getting a bit sick and tired of having to be my outlet when I get into a ramblingmode...

Spoiler Warning!
This post contains spoilers and if you haven't watched up to at least
Season 5 of Supernatural you will get spoilers. You've been warned!


Some of the reasons why I'm a Sam-girl.

So, I've been watching Supernatural from the get go and I wouldn't call myself anything other than a die-hard fan. People in my vicinity would fully agree...I'm a 34-year old fangirl. But above that, I'm a Sam-girl.

Here are some reason's why.

In season 1 Sam shows us that he, despite having been brought up in a dysfunctional family (to say the least), can stand on his own two legs. He broke free, followed his dream and made a life for himself. I've never seen it as a betrayal towards Dean. It's normal for a family to encourage it's younger members to fly solo, not normal to bitch and moan about it...

He never feels sorry for himself. In season 2 when his visions hit even harder, sure he's scared, but never searching for pity. He stands tall. This season also has the episode "Heart"...and my own heart will never be the same after having watched Sam do what has to be done...

In season 3 and the whole mess with Dean having sold his soul to save Sam, he never ever gives up searching for answers to save his brother from hell.

In season 4 we see him from a whole other angle. Letting loose his demons. Walking the edge. Showing us the darkness buried deep inside. He has his heart in the right place but circumstance and bitches with black eyes lead him down the wrong path. But I still love him.


In season 5 he never tries to make excuses for what he's done. He faces the consequences full on. This season has a scene with him and Dean that actually sum's up why I'm not a fan of Dean. In the end of "Sam, interrupted" (ep11) Sam reveals how he really is feeling on the inside. If my sibling came to me with all of that I would set aside everything and just listen for a while. Dean's response is: "...you're gonna take all that crap and you're gonna bury it. You're gonna forget about it! 'Cause that's how we keep goin'..." The look on Sam's face breaks my heart every single time. But he stays with his brother. In this season it seems as if everyone is forgetting about the fact that Sam's struggling. We mostly get to see Dean's struggle with his emotions. And it honestly pisses me off.

I could list the rest of the seasons one by one, but I'll likely start to ramble. So here's a summary:
He breaks, puts himself together, grow stronger, struggle with himself, struggle with the world, breaks again, looses himself, finds himself, looses his brother, tries his best to move on, gets his brother back, is blamed for having left said brother behind (when all he did was trying to stay alive).

He is also left behind, betrayed by his brother and forgives.

He is a badass, he is smart, a fierce lover and a good friend.
He knows what he wants. He also knows what he has.
Oh, and he fought the devil and won...

He is pure. He is light. He is darkness. (Now I'm getting all sappy...)
I could go on...but I wont.

So there you have it. The ramblings of a Sam-girl(woman).
