I’m not usually one to complain, or criticize, or speak out
at all really. I’m one of those fans that just quietly sits in the corner and
admires from afar, silently praising all the guys for what they do. But every
now and again, someone does something that lights me up, and I’m off like a
As I’m sure you’ve concluded, that happened recently.
I’m a Jared girl, but I love and respect all the actors
equally. Respect being a keyword here. Phoenix con 2017 is going on now. As it
so happens, that’s exactly where this incident took place. Yesterday. On the
day mostly recognized as Misha’s day of the con.
Let’s all just agree that Misha is an incredible human okay?
He’s actual such an incredible human that he borders on being a real life
angel. He deserves all the good things in the world. Which is why I am
particularly fired up because of what happened.
**Not naming names
because this is not to bash anyone, just to draw attention to the fact that
these are people with real, human
I’m going to summarize this the best I can because,
honestly, the more I talk about it the angrier I get (and I’m not an angry
person, this just really doesn’t sit well with me).
Long story short, there was a con-goer that had been to a
con in the past and she had Misha sign her arm. Misha had said that if she
still had the autograph on her arm the next time he saw her, he would buy her
ice cream. No harm in that part. This is where things start getting…. Uncomfortable.
The girl then decided she was going to take Misha up on that
(which, admit it, we would all try to keep Misha’s auto on us as long as we
could, bet or not). But, instead of doing any number of options that would be
considered safe and acceptable, she peeled off her skin,
including the autograph, and preserved it.
Are you still with me? Hold on. I’m not done yet.
At Phoenix Con, she then adhered it back to her skin. Now, I’m
not sure if she showed it to him during a panel, or ops, or autos, or where.
But when she did show it to him, he told her to take it off.
**this is where I get seriously pissed**
So, she takes it off. AND FUCKING THROWS IT AT HIM.
This girl, who claims to love and respect Misha Collins
throws a piece of her dry, dead, decaying skin at him. It lands in his lap and
his handler has to come pick it up.
She tries to excuse it by saying ‘it’s all in good fun’ and that he’s ‘used to
her by now’, but let’s make a few things clear.
It’s all in good fun? I’m sorry, I have never once in my
life have gone around throwing preserved skin at people for the fun of it. And
I’ve asked some of my friends (the ones that wouldn’t call the cops on me for
asking such a question) and they all said the same thing. I don’t care if you’re
a celebrity or Mary Jane that lives next door, people don’t like having dead skin thrown on them. Especially a stranger’s skin.
Secondly, no matter how many times we meet them, they really
don’t know us. They don’t know if you’ve got any diseases. They might not even
recognize you, really. How many times have you seen someone at work over and
over and over again but don’t really know them? I have. I’ll admit it. And you
know what? It is my job to interact and build report with customers. And I’m
not a celebrity – I don’t have millions of people begging for time with me.
I guess I made this post for a few reasons:
Is my anger justified or misplaced? Taking into
consideration that, while I’ve never met them (Pitt Con is so far away), I do
love them like they’re family
I’m open to opinions.
I want to make a PSA that Jared, Jensen, and
Misha – hell EVERYONE – are human. Don’t do something to them that you wouldn’t
like having done to you. If you wouldn’t like have dead animals thrust into
your hand, don’t make them hold one. If you wouldn’t like someone to throw
decaying organs on you, don’t do it to them! You paid money for a ticket to the
con. You did not pay money to abuse them.
I know I’m going to probably get hate for this, and to be
honest, I really don’t care. If you think I’m right, great. I’m glad someone
sees this from where I’m at and finds it just as wrong as I do. If you think I’m
wrong then… well, you keep doing whatever you think is right. We’ll agree to
tl;dr – Don’t throw your decaying, preserved skin at Misha
because he’s a human and it’s disgusting on so many levels. Show him respect.
Show all of them respect. You know Misha is too kind to say anything about how
uncomfortable it makes him, so just save everyone from being awkward, and save
the fandom from feeling like we have to apologize for the actions of a single

You didn’t knock storming into my life, ready to throw it upside down. You didn’t know what you were going to do to me, had no idea I existed. You still don’t but that never mattered. I was low, lower than I ever thought I would be, so low I didn’t see the light, it felt as if I was already buried.
But you entered the stage. You shined so bright it was blinding at first, overwhelming to me, who’d never seen someone like that. I would later find out you were the only one. A soul so heavy I can’t imagine the strength you have to have to keep carrying it, yet you do it with so much love and passion, God is inspired.
You turned so many of my negative thoughts around, made me rethink a lot about how I saw things. When I was tired of crying and exhausted from panic, you were there holding me. With words, with nothing, with a smile, a joke, a poem. Whenever I needed someone, whenever I needed you, you were there. Yet you had no idea.
You didn’t take any credit for your help, you never had to be there. But you were regardless. You didn’t need anything but us to feel better, and no person could ever be better than that. You saw the worst in life, in people, and you decided to become the opposite.
I want you to know, you have saved me and many others, changed the way we thought and felt. I want you to know you kept us from breaking and became our hopes and dreams and reasons. I want you to know what you mean to me, to us, dear dear Misha. I’m crying as I write this, needing you to get all the love, as much as you gave it to us. You deserve this every single day. I want you to know that without you, the world would not be so bright. I want you to know I give you my love, blessings and thanks. It’s not enough to show how important you are to us and everyone, but it’s all I have.
Never stop loving yourself, never stop being you. You mean to much to me. To everything. I love you.

Thank you for sharing us the gift of skating, Misha! ♥
Someone probably already asked this question , but I’ll ask anyway because I really want to know your opinions.
Would you be happy if DESTIEL becomes canon with CAS in a female vessel, or you’d rather not have canon if it happens this way?
