“I’m serious, I didn’t go on another date for like, four months after that!” Tears ran down your face from laughing so hard. Misha’s voice cracked around fits of laughter, hardly containing himself. “Hands down, it was one of the worst experiences of my life!”
“Misha Collins embarrassing himself on a date. Can you imagine.” You wiped tears from your eyes as you leaned back into the couch, sighing deeply.
Misha leaned back too, watching you. “This was fun.”
You blushed and looked down, playing with your hands. “Yeah, it was.” You couldn’t contain the smile on your face. “I had a really great time.”
“Me too.” Your heart jumped as two hands grabbed your fidgeting ones, holding them still. You looked up and met his gaze. “I’ve got to be honest, I can’t remember the last time I had this much fun with someone.” Your smile grew wider.
“Yeah.” He played with your fingers and sat up, leaning towards you. “I’d like to do it again sometime, if you want.”
You bit down on your lip and nodded. “I’d like that very much.”
“Good.” Misha leaned in more, his voice no more than a whisper. “I think I’m going to kiss you, now.”
“You better.” Your response was barely audible as you moved towards him and your lips met, moving gently in unison. You both pulled away after a few seconds, your heart feeling like it was about to beat out of your chest.
Misha brought one hand up to your face and brushed some stray hairs away, grinning. “I’d really like to do that again.”
You laughed, kissing him again briefly. “I really like the sound of that.”
So for the J3 op… I decided to do something very personally meaningful to me. After the idea, I emailed Chris and asked if this would be okay. He said yes and actually printed out the photo I wanted to use in my photo op with J3.
I get in line for J3 with specific instructions to go last or as close to last as possible. The volunteers were surprisingly helpful this time. While hanging out at end of line, I met Lynn (author of Fangasm) and she saw that I was nervous. Told her I don’t normally get nervous but because this was a “memorial tribute” to my mother, she understood why I was nervous. So she kind of took me under her wing and asked if I would be more comfortable if she introduced me to the boys. I said “sure” since the boys know her pretty well.
It’s my turn. We walk up and I’m so nervous that I’m barely looking up. I hear Lynn tell the boys who I am and Jensen jokes “Oh, that’s nice of you to introduce her. She’s pretty hardcore shy.” Then I glanced at Jared and Jeff, my mom’s photo grasped tightly in my hands, as I tend to move without knowledge right to Jensen. I took a deep breath, though it didn’t help, and started to explain my op.
“My mom died nearly 10 years ago summer before the pilot aired. The show gave me something to look forward to and help me with my grief. It was a way to distract me from everything.” (Now it came out a lot more choppy but it all came out some how). Then I turned to Jensen and said, “I really gravitated towards Dean because he used to be funny.” Jensen smiled big and Jeff laughed and said to me, “You’re right, he used to be funny. Not so much anymore.” I glanced at Jared and his expression was fully of sympathy. I glanced back at Jeff and asked, “I was hoping we could have my mom in the photo too?” And Jared replied back immediately, “Yes, of course” as Jeff took the picture frame from my hands.
I was so out of it when Jensen said, “Come here, sweetie” and grabbed me into a huge, comforting hug. I had no idea what Jared or Jeff were doing. All I can remember is being engulfed in Jensen’s warm, protective arms and scooting back to get closer to Jared or Jeff when Chris motioned to Jensen to move back a bit.
The photo was taken by Chris: I can’t even remember it being taken. All I can recall is grasping onto Jensen’s shirt as he held me. As I started to back away from him and thank him, he once again pulled me into a protective embrace saying, “Hold on, sweetie, let me give you another hug.” So as I was being embraced by Jensen… I so wasn’t expecting him to brush my hair back and press a kiss against my forehead.
After getting a voluntary kiss from Jensen I am not sure how I functioned. But I thanked Jared and he gave me a really big hug. Then I thanked Jeff and he also pulled me into a hug and kissed my forehead as well.
These men are so humble, respectful, and truly care about their fans’ lives. I cannot thank Chris enough for helping make this happen. I feel so relieved that J3 took the time to listen to my story and truly listen and show interest in what I had to say even when I was scared to death as I spoke.
As you can see in the picture I was a nervous wreck and Jensen was pretty much my lifeline during that photo op.
i’m back on the set and i met misha again and talked to him
mishas voice is so cute

I MET MY SUNSHJNE 3 TIMES IN ONE DAY???? THE FUCK???? IMCRHJNG SI HARD?

GESTURED AT HIM AND HE WAS LIKE “I AM HERE” AND THEN I SAID “I MEAN YOU’RE LJKE MY FAVOURITE PERSON EVER SO” AND HE WAS LIKE “WHAT”
AND HIS VOICE WENT A LITTLE HIGHER AND CAME OVER AND HUGGED ME. HE WAS SO WARM AND HE SMELT SO GOOD AND I’M FUCKING CRYING I CANT BELIEVE THAT JUST HAPPENED. THEN HE HAD TO ACTUALLY GO OFF THE SET BECAUSE THEY WERE FINISHED FILMING AND I’M SO SAD I MISS THEM ALREADY

I WAS THE ONLY ONE WHO HUGGED MISHA CAUSE HE HAD TO GO QUICKLY BFNXND OH MY GOD
okay goodnight i’ll leave you with this picture of misha and his soup
So I actually freaking met Jared Padalecki in my home area of Pittsburgh. It was a dream come true. Yes, I am the same height as him, and yes my name is also Jared (and our birthdays are three days apart AND sacrifice is apparently both our favorite episodes). I only got a little bit of time with him but he was super nice with me and everyone else and it was a truly awesome experience. I got autographs from other cast members (they signed on the art work I have previously posted on my blog) and I was shocked at how nice they all were. It was just a great weekend. Love that show, love him, and love them all.
Edit: Also, I just felt that there was something I should add. Another reason that this was so special to me was that Always Keep Fighting was something that Jared created but also became very important to me. It’s mind blowing to me that someone I look up to deals with the same stuff I do. I obviously couldn’t say anything about that during the photo op not was I going to and distract him from the many other fans who waited with me (besides I was so star struck I only got a few words out he made 75% of our ten second conversation about our heights haha). It meant a lot to meet the guy that this campaign and tries to help other people.
So I met Misha today. I was so nervous when I walked up to him and he probably noticed because before I even get to muster up the courage to speak, he went ahead and said “hi!”. And that was all the push I need to form actual words to tell him that I made the poster; that it was my all-time favorite quote of his that has inspired me for years. Then he was like, “did you make this? I LOVE it”. And his face when he saw it was priceless. It’s cheesy but I actually teared up right after I left the auditorium. It was so overwhelming.
Thank you Misha for being so awesome and sweet. I know you hear this a lot, but the world is so much better with you on it.
As per last time, I’m supplying these JPGs so y’all can enjoy and play around with them (for icons and headers and whatnot) if you want - just play nice and don’t be mean and they really belong to Chris so no buying, selling, or wagering.
Let us harken back to a time when A. and I finally MET CAS….
I’ve watched the SPN Mockumentary a hundred times. Was just watching it again tonight and noticed that ROOM 24 of the Men of Letters bunker leads to…OUR REALITY! OMG, are Sam and Dean aware that they have a portal to an alternate reality?
I’ve said it. Many fans have. The “Jensen” and “Jared” in this piece are the actors that got replaced by Dean and Sam in “The French Mistake” (S6). So, I was thinking, if they used Room 24, what would Dean do if he met a tofu-eating, tai-chi master Jensen? And what would Sam think of the vain Jared?
So i was nervous as hell for this op, because though i’ve met both jensen and misha in person before, i’d never had to handle both of them at the same time. I was pretty early in the line and i hadn’t quite gotten over the shell-shock of seeing them by the time I was up, so i just depended on my auto-pilot and said something like “sorry misha but is it cool if i hug jensen and you hug us?” and they just kind of smiled like sure you dork lets do this.
I was as chill as one can be while being pressed up against jensen fucking ackles by misha motherfucking collins UNTIL…I blinked.
just as the camera went off I blinked ridiculously hard and i was seriously just gonna be like “ah well c’est la vie, its not like I’m really here for the photo part of this anyway,” but chris, wonderman that he is, noticed and was just like, “oops, someone blinked!”
so jensen and misha pulled me back (because i was kind of skedaddling out of there super quick) and then, just, guys. guuuuuuuuys.
You know how they play music in there, and its usually whatever the guests request it to be? i’m pretty positive that this was specifically jensen’s playlist, which i say because he started to sing along with it while i was pressed right up there against him. Y’ALL.
so, long story short, jensen is making a dorky face because he’s singing “Oh Sherrie” right in (above) my ear, I’m making that face because my brain was making a noise like a tea kettle, and misha’s just chilling there being unfairly gorgeous (and btw thats HIS hand on jensen’s shoulder, not mine).
and after this was over, i just sort of wheezed a thank you and speed-walked to my room to flip the fuck out about it because OH MY FUCKING GOD JENSEN.
Once is one thing but two times and I am calling this something that happens often. Jensen frequently let’s his head fall on Misha’s shoulder, and feels so comfortable doing so that he naturally does it when close to him, even when on camera.
okay but honestly I just wanna hang out with misha all the time and be his best friend and eat lunch with him and talk about castiel and the universe and anything really and I get so happy to think that there r people who literally have this relationship with such a phenomenal person
All righty, Tumblr lovelies, here is my FIRST PHOTO OP (of FOUR) from SeaCon with the lovely and talented Mr. Misha Collins.
Please feel free to use and abuse this image, Tumblr GIF Elves, as long as you are not using this to spread unkindness towards any of the SPN cast, crew, nor any of the con staff, nor any ANYBODY ever in the history of the world.
What follows is my ALMOST TRUE STORY of said photo opportunity:
