I swear this is not a fan fiction. I’m still sharing the stories from my JIBCON saga.
Sorry for the long delay, I just borrowed Uncharted 4 from my friend, and decided to spend my weekend playing it instead. Anywho, let’s continue the story from Jus in Bello Con day 2. Yeah, it’s still the second day, and there were a lot going on in this full day (we only have half day on Friday).
On the previous post, I told you about how Jared slipped about Castiel’s fate in season 13, and Jensen tried to save him from the shame. So the panel continued with the boys sharing stories about their work and how they enjoyed their lives and work and so on. Until there was one person giving out question to them in such an odd accent.
There was only one person who would ask Jensen and Jared with a weird accent.
Jared asked the mysterious person where he was from, and this person replied, “I’m from India-Russia, with a bit of Iranian, German, South African and Greek.” Jensen couldn’t control his giggle when this person talked, he really got a kink for accent hat boy.
Yup, the India-Russian person was our Dmitri.
Adorable thing happened as Misha walked to the stage.
Seconds before Misha was up on stage, Jensen joked about how he was happy with Castiel’s death, and apparently he didn’t realised Misha was already on the side of the stage. Then when Misha stepped on, he went to Jared for a hug while Jensen quickly stood up from his chair and gave it to Misha to sat on, then he went for another chair. Here, I supposed Misha was a bit upset with Jensen’s previous comment, because he just walked past the chair Jensen prepared and sat on the new chair, looking straight to the audience. No hug for Jensen.
The angel actor sat still until Jensen offered him a drink, that was when he finally turned and said something that made Jensen finished his drink, and pour another in his glass before handing it to Misha. Maybe there was something said between them during the last interaction, because Jensen looked more relaxed after that and Misha (finally?) smiled to him.
Now, Jensen, don’t be cruel to the angel actor.
For some reasons, Jared suddenly mentioned how Misha hired an AirBnB house near the set, for the last late night shooting days, and invited Jensen and Jared for a sleepover. Jensen mentioned that that night he checked, Jared was sleeping on the floor next to the bed Misha slept in, while he had a room for himself. Misha decided that this was a good time to say, “You needed the rest after what we’ve been through!”
And Jensen went sheepishly red, it was glorious!
The story went on how they wanted to celebrate the last days of shooting Season 12 by staying up late and drinking wine, or beer, or anything, then go to bed. Jensen, who slept on the other room down the hall of the house, was awaken in the wee hours of night. Of the sound of snoring. By Jared. It was so loud, Jensen thought both Jared and Misha brought in an animal into the house, and he wondered how did Misha stayed sleeping with that noise next to him.
Yes, Misha, how?
Story didn’t stopped there. The next morning, Jared decided that it was a good idea to answer the incoming house call, pretending that he was the owner of the house. Thankfully, Misha quickly noticed, so a little childish fight – and a broken glass – later, he managed to lined off the phone and went to pull the phone cord off the wall.
Only to realised that he left his laptop open in the mercy of one Jared Padalecki. Long story short, he ran back upstairs to the living room and as if in slow motion, he shouted “Noooooooo!” and grabbed his laptop back from Jared.
While Jensen thought he just had the best morning coffee entertainment.
Later that day, after both Jensen and Jared had left for work, Misha still stayed in. Not only he wasn’t needed yet on set, but he also had to spend two hours to unsubscribe from a gay porn channel that Jared signed up to. Unsuccessfully, because Jared had set up a password that wasn’t known to Misha.
Those three are the men that I love and look up to.
And I’m proud of it.
Childish joke aside I really love the chemistry between the three of them off-set. They started out as friends, but now they were like brothers. Jensen clearly the oldest, even though Misha actually is. Well, honestly, with my dirty mind, I always pictured Jensen and Misha as this boyfriends couple, and Jared was Jensen’s cheeky little brother that Misha had to deal with everyday if he ever wanted the blessing. Probably not the best theory out there, but they really gave out that vibe.
Fantasizing aside, I’m glad that they – the three of them, their wives, and their children – are good friends.
After the story finished, Jensen and Jared walked off the stage and it was Misha’s turn. Misha’s panel was hilarious as always, but somehow I had this feeling that he wasn’t his usual self due to his tiredness. He tried to covered it with being smiley and friendly as always, but it was clearly shown.
Oh! Mon got to asked a question to Misha! Funny thing was Misha couldn’t understand her accent, so he got the question wrong! Mon was asking, according to Misha, how would Dean reacted if he found Cas crashing the Impala. Guess what Misha heard?
Yep, “How would Dean reacted if he found Cas CARESSING the Impala?”
As in … “How would Dean reacted if he found Cas was cheating with the Impala?”
All this time, I kept wondering how his beautiful brain worked. I never found the answer.
After Misha’s panel was finished, we went to autograph room to get autos from
God Rob Benedict and David Haydn-Jones. As we were lining, we saw that David was in a suit, he was cosplaying as Arthur Ketch. Jesus, could this man be any cuter? He really loved his psychopath character in the show, it’s adorable!
David was as gorgeous as the day before and as friendly, his eyes really pierced into your soul, and his smile felt like home. He saw me when it was my turn and he flaunted that smile of his while saying “Hello!” to me excitedly, I returned the greeting and handed him the auto card. I asked him how was his first JIBCON so far (basically the first question I asked Adam on the first day, since it really was their first JIBCON), David replied by saying that he was enjoying it. Then came the time I showed him the drawing I made of Jedi!Ketch, which honestly was a last minute attempt to create something for him, since his announcement came late due to Timothy Omundson’s stroke attack.
So, the story behind my gift to him was I saw his post on Instagram where he claimed that he’s a Star Wars Fanboy. That was the idea of Jedi!Ketch came (which honestly it was actually Sith!Ketch, but hey). I had showed him the fanart on Twitter beforehand, and David responded saying that he loved it (and I flew to cloud nine).
When I handed him the fanart during auto session, I asked him, “Do you remember this fanart?” Then David’s eyes widened in recognition and his smile went wider, “Yeah! Jedi!Ketch! So you made this! Now I get to see you in the flesh! Thank you!” Yes, he talked with all those exclamation mark, it was so adorable. We ended up the chat with him giving me a high five.
Oh by the way, here’s a video of David dancing while wearing a pink tutu from JIBCON.
And here’s the auto card with Matt, Adam, and David’s autographs.
…….. If I got the chance to go to JIBCON again next year, I will have more preparation for autographs.
For my gift to
God Rob Benedict, I was had this anime-styled drawing of him and Richard Speight Jr. as a King card, for their show Kings of Con. They made a show based on their adventures on Supernatural conventions, the Pilot episode was available for free on YouTube, but unfortunately the season was not. Not even on Vimeo. Dang.
First I handed my fanart of him to Rob, and he, adorably, said “Wow, this is amazing. You made this?” I giggled and said, “Yes. Do you like it?” Rob replied and saying that he liked it, and he didn’t want to ruin the drawing, so he gave his sign on the lower part of the page.
Then I handed him the Kings of Con fanart, and I told him that it was intended for him and Richard, but since he couldn’t come, so I hope Rob could tell Richard so.
Rob took my drawing out from the envelope and his smile went brighter, “Wow, this is so cool! Thank you very much!” and I swear with blue eyes like his, he really was a good fit as Castiel’s Father, The Almighty.
After lunch we finally met our fate … Photo Op session with Misha Collins, Jensen Ackles and J2M.
Just as when standing in queue for Misha’s autograph session, my hands were cold way before I saw the man clearly. I could saw him while waiting for my turn, but mostly him behind the room separator or something like that. We had a while to discuss the pose, so the three of us were browsing Google Images, looking for a cute or even romantic pose to do with Misha. The queue moved quite fast, considering it was a photo op session, probably because there weren’t as much talk as the autograph session.
When Misha finally came to our sight, I could feel my heart rumbling again and I had a slight panic attack. I finally get to see him closer and more so-called private than before. I didn’t get much time to think, because suddenly it was my turn. I stepped in and – AMAZINGLY! – I remember to greet him. In Russian. I didn’t know why.
Although I wasn’t sure he heard it, since he was only smiling and looking at me with his gorgeous … gorgeous blue eyes. It took me a while to remember what to do next, but it only took a milisecond for Misha to ruined it again.
I saw him lifted both of his arms, and I also saw them swayed next to my shoulders while he was only standing inches before me. I remembered that I couldn’t move a muscle while he was doing this, even a brain muscle to process what he was doing. I was fixed to his eyes that were paying deep attention to what he was doing before having his to mine. It did came to my memory that during this moment I said to him, “You’re so tall.”
Misha smiled when he pulled his hands off my shoulders, and at that moment I realised he was fixing my jacket’s – yes, the red jacket – collar. I heard Mon shouted, “MATIK LU, MOK!” (English: “Yer dead, gurl!”) from the queue.
When Misha stepped back from my personal space, I pulled myself together to showed him the reference photo that I chose. Misha tilted his head a bit, then he pulled me to a hug and squished me.
At that moment I was sure Misha could feel my heart drumming against his chest. His hug was warm and felt so safe. It felt so comfortable being in his arms, even only for a photo op.
It felt like home.
Then it was over. I felt him let go of me slowly and said “Thank you” before giving me another wink. That was the moment that I completely (almost) lost it. I took my bag and stepped out from the photo area and waited for Mon and Cicipo, and that was all I could manage. From there I couldn’t stand and dropped to the floor.
He was there.
The man that I looked up to, whose appearance in my favourite TV show was something I really look forward to each week. He had brought the character he was playing at in so many different layers, it reached a special place in my heart for Castiel. Not only for his acting, this man also always excited me on what he would do for his next charity plan, or even as simple what he and Random Acts would do on Sunday mornings at San Diego Comic-Con for people in line on Hall H.
He was the man who I really adored, both for his beauty as an actor and his beauty as a human being. And he was there, fixing my jacket, pulled me to a squishy hug for our photo op, and said thank you with a smile and winked at me after we finished.
That was the moment that I knew I have to work harder for next year’s JIBCON!
And I’m gonna keep this red jacket, even after I washed it.
After I calmed down, we went to the next photo op, Jensen Ackles.
Just as Misha’s, Jensen’s queue was making me nervous. Here I was, looking forward to take a photograph with the man who lured me to Supernatural, and fell more in love when I knew about his adorable relationship with his then-girlfriend, now wife, until now where he gave so much for the fandom, even when he was so shy and less, very much less outgoing than how he is today. And I’m so proud of him because of how he opened up himself and made himself more comfortable with people and public.
With him being more comfortable with fans, that was also what he did to us, fans. I remember being so nervous and had to control my slight anxiety before seeing him. But the moment I stepped on the spot in front of the camera and saw him smiled so sweetly, I felt a bit at ease.
Jensen greeted me, with his deep voice (he really owned a deep voice!), “Hello, how are you?” I returned the favour and said that I am well and asked him how was he doing. Jensen smiled and said that he was fine and asked, “So, what are we gonna do?”
I told him that I wanted a pose of us holding my Dean and Cas Pops while hugging, I even asked him which Pop he wanted to hold. Jensen took a look on both Pops on my hand, and seriously THINKING about it, before he decided, “I’ll hold Dean, then.” (well, Dean is your character, Jensen, it was odd you even had to think about it).
After Jensen took Dean, he pulled me closer and had me leaning on him. I placed my arm around him while having my Cas Pop up. I felt that there was something on top of my head, but that time I didn’t really gave a thought about it, probably Jensen’s hand with Dean Pop. While I was close to him, I could smell his perfume, it was so nice and …. expensive. When we were finished, Jensen returned my Dean Pop and smiled widely again while saying “Thank you”, I could see his beautiful crows feet on the corner of his eyes.
He really reminded me of my big brother that moment, and I knew my brother complex just gotten worse. Especially when I saw the result, that something on my head was Jensen’s head. Holy Hell!
The three of us took a short break to recover from meeting THE Misha Collins and THE Jensen Ackles, but we couldn’t linger too long, because next we know both Mon and I have to get ready for the Trio Photo Op. Yes, with the three of them, Jensen Ackles, Jared Padalecki, and Misha Collins.
Funny thing about the Trio Op, there was a note on the door before we stepped in that said, “Sorry girls, hugs only. We are running late!” Yeah, apparently the schedule on the afternoon part of the second day was a bit messed up and the schedule shifted around 20-30 minutes. Not really sure what happened, though, but everything seemed to worked smoothly although the schedule shifted. Here I really applauded Daniela and her team for making everything worked perfectly fine, even when it was considered a little bit out of hand.
Anyway, back to Trio Photo Op.
There was a look of recognition in Jensen and Misha’s eyes when they saw me – Jensen with a smile, and Misha was still tired. I almost didn’t see Jared. Not because I didn’t pay attention to him, but he was so FUDGIN’ TALL!! Jesus, that dude really was as tall as a moose! I think the top of my head was on his chest only! I didn’t have enough time to process anything, because the photographer had called us out to get ready for our photo op. All i remember was the three of them closing in on me and wrapped their arms around me, while I had my silly face on.
Such decision, yeah?
