For anyone confused about the significance of the name Zeppelin Bram – His umbilical cord was wrapped around his neck in a Zeppelin Bend. So its not some celebrity trend or something, it’s part of the story of his survival. (x)
Danneel does not deserve the bad rap she’s getting from this fan base and it’s really bothering me how many people are making such big deals out of all of this.
Mrs. Ackles just brought two babies into the world and yes, hundreds of women do this, and yes, hundreds of women have to raise 3+ kids on their own. She is a woman, and she did what women are evolved to do, produce young. But that doesn’t mean Danneel deserves any special treatment, and neither does it mean that she should be treated like dirt (for “creating an inconvenience for Jensen and the fandom” as someone said).
We claim to be a fandom where family comes first, and then some of you get unnecessarily mad about the fact that Jensen maybe did not want to spend his whole weekend at the con to spend time with his family.
HIS CHILDREN WERE BORN ON FRIDAY and yet he still showed up to SFcon with encouragement from Danneel because she probably knew about the backlash that would come from the fandom if he didn’t go.
To be honest, there would have been backlash from the fans either way.
If he stayed at home with his family, the fans would have felt cheated out of their money and sent hate his way for not being there for them.
He is not a therapist. He is a human being who deserves some time to himself. Be grateful for the time that he sacrificed for you guys.
If he did go for the whole weekend, even if Danneel had said it was okay, the fans would have wondered why he came to the con and not stayed home.
Please stop accusing Danneel of being an attention seeker.
On the note of the baby’s names:
I think they are awesome and unique and I love them.
Zeppelin Bram Ackles: I love this name and many people are accusing Jensen of naming the baby something that Dean would. This is not true. The umbilical cord was wrapped around him like a bend known as “Zeppelin bend”. Jensen confirmed this at SFcon.
Arrow Rhodes: This is an awesome name also. Both Jensen and Danneel wanted and A.A. name and both liked the name Arrow, also confirmed by Jensen at SFcon.
Chill out people. Those are their names. Just accept it and move on.
Many fans are being amazing with all of this and just focusing on being happy for the Ackles family. Which is what we all should be doing.
Just please shut up for a while and be happy for them.
