Warnings: Like one cuss word Characters: Jensen Ackles, Jared Padalecki, SPN cast member!reader, Misha Collins(mentioned) Summary: You’re an actress on SPN and you get a big role in a new show and it comes up in a con Reader’s Age: Roughly 15/16 years old. It could work for any though. Word Count: 1049
Y/N: Your Name
A/N: This originally had Misha in it too but it became too much of a hassle to include all of them so I just did Jensen and Jared. Enjoy!
You, Jensen, and Jared were all backstage getting ready to do a small panel. Ever since you were no more than three years old you’ve been acting on the show. Sure, a three-year-old doesn’t necessarily have much acting skill, but you had enough to get by. The boys loved having you on the show. You always brightened up their day, and you’ve also got a little bit of Jared, Jensen, and of course, Misha in your personality.
Of course, school was always a problem until your parents decided to pull you out and let you become homeschooled. The set would take breaks every now and then to let you do some school throughout the day, and if you needed any help then you just went to one of the guys.
You’ve just always been there and around them. They’ve become your family. You love doing conventions and meet-ups because it means you get to meet your even bigger family. The Supernatural family.
You’re a pretty popular character on the show. Most girls look up to you since you started acting so young and haven’t gone down a bad path, probably because you have such good influences in your life. Occasionally, you get to do your own panels, but you mainly prefer to have one of your boys there with you.
“You ready, kid?” Jensen asked as he handed you a microphone.
“As ready as I’ll ever be!” you responded enthusiastically.
Jared walked over and flashed you a quick smile before turning towards the stage. The band started playing and you three made your way onto the stage. The crowd cheered as the band played along. You three smiled and waved at everyone until you all realized the end of the song was coming up. You all, hilariously, got into your jumping stances and waited for the right time. Just when the song was about to end you all jumped up and slammed back down as if you were playing an electric guitar.
Lights blinded you as you looked out into the crowd, you smiled and waved back as the screaming never faltered. You walked over to the mic stand and put your microphone in it.
“How y'all doin’?” Jared asked. The crowd cheered in response.
“That’s great because we need you guys to get our energy up. Jensen has been dragging his feet all day,” you teased, looking over at your co-star with a shit-eating grin.
“Hey! Blame the two new munchkins!” Jensen retorted, earning laughs from you and everyone else.
For a few minutes you three told a few stories then went into questions. A young girl, no more than sixteen was next to ask a question. She had short brunette hair and was wearing angel wings with a trench coat. She took a deep breath before blurting, her voice young and shaky, “So, Y/N. Rumor has it that you’re gonna be one of the main roles in the new show Stranger Things. Is that true?” Jensen and Jared both shook their heads slightly with small smiles.
“Yeah, yeah. It’s true,” you responded humbly.
“Yep. It’s official! She’s leaving us!” Jensen threw his arms up. “After years and years of being on Supernatural, she’s gonna drop us like a little kid playing with an old toy!” Jensen teased.
You slapped his arm with a smile that just would not go away; it never did at these events “It’s not permanent! It’s just for one season.”
“For now. One season will turn into two, which will turn into three…” Jared chimed in, trailing out his voice as he stuck out his bottom lip in a pout.
“I’m still on the show, ain’t I?” you replied with a giant grin.
Jared walked over and engulfed you into a hug and fake cried loud enough for the crowd to hear, “She’s growing up so fast! Moving onto bigger and better things! I’m so proud!”
“Get off me, Moose!” you playfully pushed him away, hearing the crowd laugh.
“Don’t get me wrong, I’m glad you got the role, but just don’t forget about your family here.” Jensen got serious for a moment and pointed to everyone.
“Y'all have nothing to worry about, I could never forget you,” you smiled and hugged Jensen while the crowd awed. “Anyway, next question!” you turned to a man holding a mic.
“Oh. Uh, yeah. Um, are you excited to be on Stranger Things and will it interfere with you being on Supernatural?” a man asked on the other side of the room. You stared at the ceiling as you thought about the conflicting times.
“I am very excited, but sadly, it will interfere with working on Supernatural. I’ll probably show up here and there in a few episodes, but as of right now my main focus is Stranger Things.” The crowd awed, but not from an adorable moment like before, it was for the inevitable chunk in time without you on the show; they did it just to try and keep you staying stuck with them and you loved the family more for it.
“I know, I know. It’s sad, but it’s not forever! Like I said, it’ll probably only be for a season.”
“She’s a big actress now, huh?” Jensen pursed his lips, a smile tugging at the ends. “Soon enough you’ll see her name on every billboard in every city!”
“I think you’re going a little overboard there,” you chuckled.
“Nah, you can never go overboard when it comes to our favorite sister!” Jared pulled you into another warm and familiar hug.
“Anyway,” you huffed after you’d pulled away from Jared, setting your hands on the mic which was still in the mic stand. “Who’s next?”
Jared and Jensen answered a few questions, then came another for you. “I was wondering if we would see a crossover episode between Stranger Things and Supernatural?” the woman asked. You pondered on it with an intrigued smirk at the idea, but then it dawned on you:
“Probably not, considering that Stranger Things takes place in the 1980s, way before my time,” you chuckled sheepishly.
“Maybe you time traveled?” Jared suggested with a shrug.
“Maybe,” you replied deviously, deciding not to completely destroy the idea and at the same time making them even more enthusiastic about the possibility.
I hope y’all like this one! I’m open for tips on improving!
Requested byAnonymous: “Can you do a fic where the reader is a teen that’s been on spn since she was a kid and they are at a convention and the rest of the cast is teasing her (nice teasing) because she got a really big role in a new show for instance (stranger things) or whatever show”
(a compiled list of all the actors I found for my now-abandoned research topic. I don’t own this list but it took FOREVER to put together because apparently nobody bothered to do any research on western-based South Asians)
Asians have been involved in entertainment since the first
half of the 19th century. (Interestingly the first were the Siamese twins Chang and Eng who gained a lot of fame and riches, and eventually settled down read: got a plantation and some slaves YIKES)
There were a few Asians like Anna May Wong (a fashion icon who “sought roles that portrayed Chinese and Asian Americans in a positive light, but these films never became famous”) and Sessue Hayakawa
was considered Hollywood’s first sex symbol/attractive dude (which is cool!).
My focus was on South Asians in particular, so:
Merle Oberon was the first actor I could find. Actually her backstory/lineage is really messed up (her siblings thought she was their aunt, for one) and she hid her Indian heritage for her entire life for her own safety (her mother was Indian but she made up a backstory). She was nominated for the Oscar for Best Actress.
Sabu Dastagir who was Indian born and casted in some Hollywood films (as Mowgli, for one)
also there’s this movie Mother India/Bharat Maatha that keeps getting mentioned
Art Malik: Pakistani-born British actor who acted in quite a few tv shows & movies
Sir Ben Kingsley who we all know, his father was of Gujurati descent (so I think we can claim him). Notably he’s won all the big awards: Oscar, BAFTA, Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild. (notably for Gandhi in 1982)
director Mira Nair who has a crazy long filmography (Salaam Bombay, Mississippi Masala, etc.) and was awarded the Padma Bhushan
director M Night Shyamalan is Tamil-Malayali & was also awarded the Padma Shree by the Indian government
Indo-Canadian director Deepa Mehta (best known for the Elements trilogy)
Kal Penn, Mindy Kaling (who is Tamil, her birth name is Vera Chokalingam!), Aziz Ansari (also Tamil!), Parminder Nagra, Naveen Andrews (Lost), Kunal Nayyar (Big Bang Theory), Dev Patel (who, after Merle & Ben Kingsley is the only other Indian actor with an Oscar nom), Sendhil Ramamurthy, Kumail Nanjiani, Hasan Minhaj, Riz Ahmed *insert all your current Brown Faves™ here*
MIA isn’t an actress (but was Oscar award nominated, and the first Asian nominated for an Oscar & Grammy in the same year - for Slumdog) but she’s literally the only famous Sri Lankan Tamil out there so I feel the need to put her here despite her antiblackness kdsljfdslkfdslkfds
Ismail Merchant (Oscar award nom!),
Ayesha Dharker (I just realized Queen Jamillia from AOTC also starred in a Tamil movie. what.),
Roshan Seth, Archie Punjabi, Nina Wadia,
Indian Actors who did films in English: Om Puri, Irfaan Khan, Sanjeev
Bhaskar, Naseeruddin Shah, Nandita Das, Tabu, Amrish
Puri, Aishwarya Rai, Supriya Pathak, Kabir Bedi, Shabana Azmi, Priyanka Chopra, Deepika Padukone, Siddarth Narayanan, Shriya Saran (and soon Dhanush!)
which reminds me
(Isaipuyal/Mozart of Madras/cultural icon/everyone’s fav) AR RAHMAN, iconic Indian Tamil music director who is best known to the West as the man behind Slumdog Millionaire’s soundtrack (& pretty much every other brown-themed Hollywood film) but if that’s all you know of him… you shouldn’t. literally just google ‘best of ar rahman (preferably tamil)’ actually went up on the oscar stage and said “ella pugazhum iraivanukke” (all praise goes to god) #hedidTHAT
In that same vein, Bombay Jayshree was nominated for the title lullaby track in Life of Pi which was the time I lost it in a theater bc a TAMIL song was playing HELLO
now why are almost all these films issue-centric (like about terrorism or poverty) or have a Token Brown Person™ role that is either super whitewashed or super stereotypical. dudes we need to step up and represent - make some fun movies!!
Hi, after finding out a bunch of my stuff is on pinterest, I just thought I’d put down my thoughts on the reposting/re-pinning of my art.
Tumblr: Reblogging on tumblr is awesome, reposting on tumblr is not. I don’t like it, so please try not to do it. Instagram: After seeing art pop up on instagram, I caved and got an account:instagram.com/gjfangirls I only began posting stuff here so that people wouldn’t repost from tumblr and I’d have control of my art. Apparently people still repost so I only request that they: i.Pleasetag me IN the imageso that I know where it’s been posted. ii. Please write #repost @gjfangirls at the top of your description. It’s the least you can do given that I drew the image - and it’ll make me so much happier.
iii. PLEASE DO NOT TAG THE ACTORS IN MY IMAGES ON INSTAGRAM. I DON’T LIKE IT WHEN MY IMAGES ARE MADE TO INTERACT WITH THE RL PEOPLE THEY’RE BASED OFF. Please don’t.
Pinterest: I have no idea how this website even works and if someone could tell me if I can make my images un-pinnable that would be amazing, thank you.
I know it seems like a lot to ask, but I draw in the time I spare from a slightly demanding job. And while I am not in favour of reposting, I also know that it’s never going to go away entirely. All I ask is that you please respect the few requests I have regarding reposting.
i can’t believe people are mad about fans seeing dunkirk for harry, like as a person who had actual family at actual real dunkirk i’m choosing to believe that harry’s character is pals with my great grandfather

Super special thanks to @alannastara for reminding me to post this! Ily:)
This weekend is SDCC, and bless god Melissa is actually going this year (and Lennie and Khary like somebody sedate me right quick). So believe me when I say that I am going to reblog everything Melissa related. Like, everything.
For any of my followers who would like to block or blacklist this content, I will tag all my SDCC posts with: #twd, #zombie madness, and #sdcc 2017. I’ll do my best to tag actors also. And as always, if my fangirl explosion in any way diminishes your dash happiness, please unfollow at will. Your dash is your happy place!
Omg, I still can’t believe it’s been two years since Melissa’s been at SDCC. I’m gonna hyperventilate or something ghjsakghda.
