Woot! Fangirling so hard right now! We already knew it, but Supernatural = best series ever! ^_^
(Warning you right now for possibly more detail on weapons, armor etc than anyone is interested in.)

That was epic and exactly as good as I hoped it would be XD. My only disappointment was the lack of real weapons and armour in general - but then, it was LARPing and not medieval re-enactment (which is my fun of choice) - I really was hoping to see a proper swordfight though.

Highlights -"This? is a real gun. See?" and the various reactions XD. The fact Charlie had a real dagger on her. Dean discussing strategy with Charlie. Actually make that all scenes between Dean and Charlie. How Dean is always the one geeking out (and dressing up) so Sam is the (long-suffering) serious one. The fact that SPN is not afraid of giving us canon femmeslash (and I know people will be writing some awesome fic after this). Jensen/Dean in 'armor' and the brief flash of Sam. I would also love to see one of the boys in actual armor one day. I know its a pipe dream.

[Borrowing armor is unlikely to work as the J's are probably too tall/too big to fit a borrowed set. Also unless it's chainmail, most armor conforms to (or is custom-made for) the owner's bodyshape. Chainmail has more flexibility than most others, but a shirt of it can be pretty heavy for first time users. Buying ny type of armor is not cheap either and making it is pretty time-consuming, so I guess I'll just have to be content with trying to draw them in different styles with appropriate weapons. Here's hoping I'm up to the challenge.]

Also! When they were saying goodbye to Charlie and started talking, I was totally prepared to be let down and see the boys hit the road again. I am so happy they stayed and joined in fighting for the Queens army. The Braveheart speech was adorkable, Sam's comment and Dean getting interrupted had me chuckling. Also Dean's wig - did not really suit, but thank you for going that far Jensen! Am I'm wondering who forgot to put the fake tans on under the facepaint too, lol.
