UPDATE: Oops. Forgot to mention. Star Trek (The Hunky Generation) will be relesed on DVD (a basic and special edition) and Blu-Ray on November 17th! Mark your calendars!
END OF UPDATE:
Okay, so the title of the post is what the Prophet Chuck said in an episode of Supernatural I watched last Thursday.
The episode was titled “The Monster at the End of the Book”.
Sam and Dean Winchester come across a series of novels called Supernatural that depicts their lives as demon hunters. The brothers meet the author of the books, Chuck, who tellls them he has visions of Sam and Dean then puts their adventures into his novels.
They also find out that Chuck, who is pretty much a loner, befuddled and drunk most of the time in order to deal with the excruciating headaches his visions bring on, is actually a prophet of God and that the books he’s sorta compelled to write will one day be known as the Winchester Gospels.
He even has a great line when he confronts the demon Lilith. He cries out “I am the prophet Chuck!”
Chuck says that line about writing being hard in response to Sam’s question as to whether Chuck is psychic since he’s having visions about the two brothers. Chuck says, what, are you kidding? If he were psychic he wouldn’t be writing. Writing is hard!
I hear ya!
I love the cover of the Supernatural books Chuck is writing. See how Sam and Dean are portrayed as these old-fashioned romance cover types. Doesn’t that one guy look like Fabio?
A really cute moment is when Sam and Dean go online to learn more about these Supernatural books, which they find in a bargain bin at a store as they aren’t really selling that well.
They comes across a Supernatural Fan Forum and Sam tells Dean that fans are writing slash fiction about them.
Sam then has to explain to a perplexed Dean what slash fiction is.
“Don’t they know we’re brothers?” a totally horrified Dean asks.
Yeah, really. 🙂
Anyway, the show was pretty funny but also quite frightening as at the end—Sam and Dean having gone on their way—Chuck, the writer, wakes up from a dream. An angel is in his house (you see, since Chuck is a prophet of God he’s protected by an archangel and a pretty fierce one at that) but the angel in his house is just one of the foot soldiers.
Chuck tells the angel that the vision he’s just had about Sam and Dean is so horrific he’s going to go and kill himself.
The angel tells him okay, fine, but he’d only be brought back to life.
Anyway, a good show. I enjoyed it.
Since I’m done with my vampire story, I’m working on an erotic fantasy novella I had finished but which needs a bit of tweaking.
Also doing lots of research for two brand new stories I plan to write this fall.
Still can’t believe how fast this summer went! But, to be honest, I’m not much of a summer person anyway. I love Fall. I love Fall colors, the turning of the leaves, I love football, I love thick, warm sweaters and sweet candied apples, big fat pumpkins and Halloween, the smell of new books and crayon boxes (flashing back here to starting school), the cooler, drier weather.
I love Fall! 🙂
Can’t say I’m that much into winter or any of the stuff associated with it. Maybe the first snow fall. That’s pretty.
I guess I wish I could live forever in a land that was autumn all the time.
