Jo the Amateur

Corollary to this:

Note that for her first hunt, Jo does not run off alone. Instead, she teams up with two experienced hunters who she trusts. That certainly looks to me like the best way to get from amateur to profession.


So, in Reading is Fundamental, the Meg demon explains what she's about: "Look, I'm simpler than you think. I've figured one thing out about this world – just one, pretty much. You find a cause, and you serve it. Give yourself over, and it orders your life. Lucifer and Yellow Eyes – their mission was it for me."

But that's not true. In Born Under a Bad Sign, the Meg demon laughs at the idea that she might be motivated by a cause: "You really think that's what this is about? The master plan? I don't give a rat's ass about the master plan."

I also like the in BUaBS, the Meg demon rejects the name "Meg". It never made sense to me that she would have any attachment to that name.

Then again, I never did like Rachel Miner Meg. I like the actress well enough, but not as Meg.

SPN: Werewolves?

Re-watched Night Shifter, 2.12, and we get this comment from Dean about shapeshifters: "You remember the old werewolf stories? Pretty much came from these guys. Silver's the only thing I've seen that hurts them."

Does that mean at this point the writers intended to have no actual werewolves in the SPN verse? Because if so, that only lasted five more episodes.


From 2.10, Hunted:

GORDON: See, I was doing an exorcism down in Louisiana. Teenage girl, seemed routine, some low-level demon. But between all the jabbering and the head-spinning, the damn thing muttered something. About a coming war. And I don't think it meant to, it just kind of slipped out. But it was too late. Piqued my interest. And you can really make a demon talk, you got the right tools.

DEAN: And what happened to the girl it was possessing?

GORDON: She didn't make it.

DEAN: Well, you're a son of a bitch.

Now when did Dean change his mind on that one?


Supernatural: Amateurs Can't Do the Job

Rewatching No Exit, there's a line from Dean that irritates me:

Jo: Your chauvinist crap. You think women can't do the job.

Dean: Sweetheart, this ain't gender studies. Women can do the job fine. Amateurs can't. You have no experience. What you do have is a bunch of half-baked romantic notions that some barflies put in your head.

Amateurs can't do the job? Given that there is no school for hunters that we are aware of, every single hunter on the show started off as an amateur. Dean wasn't just an amateur when he started - he was a kid. Jo is new to hunting, but she's an adult who has done her research. Given that Dean calls her "sweetheart", I think her gender is a bigger part of why he's treating her the way he is than he wants to acknowledge.

Anya: A Rant

I've gotten into this before, but this link here includes some examples of people defending Anya's attempted murder of Xander in Entropy, and I'm getting riled up again.

For example: "I have every sympathy with Anya. I think most women would want to kill their partners if they were stood-up in such a fashion. "


"I have to admit, that I always liked Anya very much and never took that as anything different than a deeply hurt girl ranting about her ex-boyfrined. Haven`t we all at some point in our lives wished for someone elses intestines to be tied in a knot? I certainly have."

No. No. No. The experience they are describing, particularly in the second quote, is not Anya's experience - it's the experience of her victims. And by "victims"? I mean the women she tricked into wishing their exes dead. That was Cordelia's experience when she fantasized about Xander never again knowing the touch of a woman and Willow waking up covered in monkey hair. That was Nancy's experience when she wished her ex would become a worm. That was the experience of the woman in Selfless, who wished her taunters would have their hearts ripped out. They were venting. they were victimized by Anya making their fantasies real.

Anya was a woman striking her ex with what she knew from her past was a very lethal weapon. Anya is a murderer - and she tried to add Xander to her list. Anya was not harmlessly gripping. She was trying to torture her loved one to death, and at first she was disappointed when it failed.


Calvin and Meg

So I found the recent A Wrinkle in Time movie fairly forgettable, and it's been years since I read the book so I couldn't tell you how close it was, but:

I so very <3 white teenage boy Calvin being totally smitten with black (multiracial) girl Meg being a science genius. He's not a science genius himself, he's not competitive with her, he's just smitten about it.
