Hi! I've been mulling over something and thought I'd ask you, I've been pretty out of touch with J2's lives, become recently re-obsessed and haven't all caught up yet. Anyway: On March 4, 2016 Jared posted a facebook video for the AKF anniversary where he says in the last 12 months he's had his lowest low (we know that one - May 2015), but also "my highest high". That's the one that's puzzling me and I'd love to know more about it. Do we have any clue what this "highest high" could've been?

Hello, sweetheart!

I apologize for having to make you wait so long for my response, but this required some serious digging from my part. I can’t help but think his highest high is a combination of things, rather than a specific pinnacle from that year.

Jared’s breakdown changed things for the J’s as far as I can tell. Gradually the amount of bearding dropped and they started being seen together more often. When I’m browsing both of their twitter accounts from that time, I see a whole lot of mentions of each other and selfies together from them. I think Jared’s breakdown was a wake-up call to them both - to try and live as honestly and openly as they could while still maintaining the closet.

There were also a couple of trips that the J’s went to - Turks & Caicos and Whistler. Some of the slip-ups from that era are golden!

And we really, really need to talk about AKF! It’s such a deeply personal project that must’ve opened up the dialogue with fans in a new way for Jared. To finally let this secret out and to be accepted for an imperfect human being must’ve been huge. Not to even mention hearing how the campaigns helped other people in their daily struggles with anxiety and depression must’ve affected him! It feels good to know you’re not alone. Jared opened up about his demons with such sincerity and the response was overwhelmingly positive. I admire – no, I adore him for his courage!

In short, many beautiful things (AAAAHHH, YES YOU ARE, OH NO! PLEASE! I CAN’T!)  happened during that year and my bet is that Jared’s “highest high” was a combination of all that occured. Less bearding, less hiding and the realisation of the wonderful AKF campaigns are the things that stand out the most for me.

Thank you so much for encouraging me to take this stroll down the memory lane, darling! I do apologise for the delay again and hope that your week turns out to be fabulous!

PS: While I was looking into this video on spn-gossip, I came across this lovely gem.

youtube

i made a chatty video about how i developed my own art style. i show some older drawings that led me to the point i’m at today, and there’s some tips for how to discover your own unique style. xx

anonymous asked:

Hi Sera! Do you have any J2 cute moment you want to see, like you heard the story with no pic or only blurry pic? My list is (1)JP took a petal from JA's hair (S10 final filming) (2)JP spoon fed JA ice cream or yogurt on set (3)JP kissed baby Tom while JA held him. (4)JA wrapped his hand around Jared's arm when JP talked to another guy. The last one was at Kaleo concert. The fan witnessed them said “how are they not a couple?” lol. I love to see non-hat people saying like this. Have a nice day!

Hello, dear anon!

Oh, what a wonderful ask you sent me! I love your list. I would definitely love to see all of those moments in high definition! I’m going to share some ITK/IHA drops and fan reports I’ve saved over time, because some of this stuff is just so sweet. 

Send me videos, high definition pictures and PowerPoint presentations on the subject of one J taking care of the other. Please? (Don’t ask me for the source, I don’t know where this is originally from)

Can I sit in the table next to theirs and just observe their natural chemistry while everyone else in the world is a third wheel? I don’t need to participate in the conversation. I’m fine with just watching. I’d totally be fine with kitchen pictures as well. 

Can I just look at them while they bicker about insignificant things like one being a little late for a dinner date? 

I wish I could see how they made up after that One Famous Fight… you know, boyfriend-boyfriend style. 

Oh… and 

that time when J2 kinda made out, 

but with masks on! How bitter it makes me that there are no pictures or videos of that.

Oh, my sweet anon, there are so many moments that are regretfully just mouth-to-mouth information. I wish there were pictures of their daily lives together, but sadly, they keep it mostly to themselves… for reasons. ;) Unless they decide to share it all one day, I’ll keep saving up these, uhh, X-Files on my computer. Oh, who am I kidding! I’d just continue saving this stuff up anyway. Have a wonderful week, dear anon!

[LYRICS] Rush (Feat. Krizz Kaliko) by Rap Monster

Korean

I should be the biggest star in the world
I should be hearing Oppa from every girl
Got to put a rush on it (서둘러)
God, help me put a rush on it (서둘러 baby)

And you could be the biggest star in the world
Don’t matter, one day you’re going to leave the world
trying to put a rush on it (서둘러)
God, don’t let me put a rush on it (서둘러 baby)
I want to be the one they listen to people then broke they ears
I provoked the fears of them
Who she think about when she kissing you
When the smoke clears I provoke the tears of them
They cry they cry
When they see the dude with the thing on his eyes
Then I can open em wide, my mind
I can put the feelings of women aside
when they just feeling the vibe he got
Money for condo and a fiat. And begat the son of genius an a re-up
so we up the creek wit out a paddle or a pre-nump
and he bouta take Ya real far like a Prius
And make it to the top of this here and get popular
Cause When people think Ya poppin and popular they watchin Ya
And if a cloudy day and baracades is stoppin ya
Put in da stunner shades  block ’em from ya ocular
And I feels like I’m the biggest one
I’ll rock it till the wheels falls off and the feelings gone
And ima push it till my digits done
Races ain’t givin to the swiftest but the realist one

I should be the biggest star in the world

anonymous asked:

So, I read somewhere that Danneel was there for every showing of A Few Good Men and for Asylum 2007. I don't think it was well known in the fandom that Jensen and Danneel were "dating" at the time. Do you think the bearding began at the point or do you think that they were possibly friends before?

Hello, dear anon!

I refreshed my memory a little bit on this subject and it comes off (to me) as Jensen sort of testing D out, seeing if she’s fit for the job he was offering her. Look at these fan testimonies from the play. It sounds like D was making sure she was seen there, even approaching fans as requested by Jensen. Here’s what STT has on the topic:

So, D was there to see all of the performances, rumoured by some not to be able to keep her attention on the play. Jared flew in (with his then-beard, Sandy) while busy with filming his own project, Christmas Cottage, to support his boyfriend. It sounds like Jared and D got along at that point in time fairly well, if this is anything to go by: 

During the time Jensen was performing in this play, he had a loose-lips moment at a bar and this was supposedly said

Heh, measuring contest… sure. But I digress, horribly! I think it’s common knowledge that Jensen and D hung out in the same gang of party animals back in the early days. I believe they were/are friends and D’s performance during the summer landed her the job as Jensen’s beard. They had also filmed Ten Inch Hero a year before this play, so they must’ve known each other pretty well at this point.

Four months later Jensen made it public that he had a new “girlfriend,” so D’s public début at A Few Good Men must’ve been adequate and a deal had been forged between them. It must’ve helped the decision that Jared seemed friendly with her back then as well. 

Thanks for the message, sweet anon! This was interesting to put together. I hope your weekend has been good so far and continues to treat you nicely!

Ogopogo - Canada

Before European settlers came to Canada natives talked about a fearsome lake monster called the N’ha-a-itk. And Settlers soon became aware of this lake monster, describing it as having a long serpent-like body, and a face with a mixture of a scaly horse-goat. It took until the 1920′s when a song about the lake monster came out calling it the Ogopogo that finally gave it it’s more commonly known name. It even made its way on a canadian stamp shortly after and a statue of the friendly serpent resides in a park nearby the lake for tourists to see if shes too shy to pose for photos for them. Tall tale? Well from the numerous amounts of people claiming to see it and photographs of it, this tale might not be tall at all. Scientists recently have made claims that the Ogopogo might be an early unevolved ancestor to the modern whale. But what is it doing out there in Canada? Now we might never actually know that. These are a list of sightings on the Ogopogo. So decide for yourself; is it a tale as tall as the creature is long? Or is there an unevolved friend living with the canadians?

The Fight That Changed Everything

Jensen and Jared have always mentioned this set fight, in Season 1. Throughout the years they’ve been telling us tid bits of it. Every time they reveal something new. In all those years and through all those retellings of that story, one thing is certain: that was a milestone for J2. 

After that fight, things changed. Not only did they make a pact to never let things escalate to that level again, but also they tested the limits of their relationship. Read their words; that wasn’t just a fight and not just a professional disagreement. There was something more and whatever it was, it honed their relationship. There are drops from ITKs and IHAs that say the Js try as best as they can to never go to bed angry with each other.
