Asylum Report Part 2  
Here's the second part of my Asylum report:




Okay in my last report I promised you the Jared/Jensen story... so I think it’s just fair to start with that, right? *gg*

While we were standing in the autograph line, someone in front of us complimented Jensen about his watch (I have no idea which brand it is, but it looked very fancy and expensive) and Jensen told that he likes it very much, got it a while ago as a gift from Jared. I’m not quite sure if I heard the next part correct, because we were standing a little behind, but he also said that Jared has the same one and just had to buy one for him as well. Yeah, that made me go all “awww” (silently of course, because damn, he was just sitting there and a very loud “awww” would have really drawn attention to me, wouldn’t it?! ) *g* But how cute is that? The boys thinking of each other while shopping? Awww…

Alright… Saturday evening. After the panels were over, we went back to the hotel and grabbed something to eat. At around 8 pm the Jason Manns concert should start, and we were already late for that. While the others were waiting for a cab michaela3105 and I decided to walk back. Of course the concert had already started and I was a little disappointed because I love Jason and his voice and missing the beginning was not very cool.

After a while, Jason started talking about Jensen and Crazy Love again… and I was just: No way…. no fucking way. He wouldn’t do that…. But then he called Jensen on stage and I think that was the point my mind went completely blank! That was one thing I’d have never expected!!! Seriously! I think the chances of Jared dancing on stage, wearing a tutu were higher than Jensen going on stage singing! (so yeah, I was a liiittle surprised!! ) But it was just fantastic. Of course I also recorded this perfomance - among the other hundred people in the room aiming their cameras at him *lol* There were just a few people before, who’ve heard Jensen sing live! So being there and being allowed to experience that… you have no idea what that means to me! Still, just thinking about it makes me go all squee-face again.

Yeah, I think that was really the highlight of that evening – or even the whole day! The music after the Jason concert was not too bad as well… (Supernatural music, people!!)

Around 12 am we called it a night and went back to our hotel. While everyone else was falling in their beds… completely dead and exhausted, michaela3105 and I stayed up, rewatching All Hell Breaks Loose…(again, I think at that point we’ve already seen that episode twice)

Yeah… Sunday morning! Early one morning … I don’t remember when we got up (and I think you don’t really care about the specific time either lol ) It was just very early and at breakfast everyone could barely keep their eyes open. But at the same time we were beyond excited because we had our Jensen Photoshoot this morning! Yep, great combination… sleepy eyes, hung over… and Jensen at your side. Lovely picture, huh?!

We went to the Leofric 2 hours before the photo shoot was due to start and waited. (well, what else could we do, right?) At that point I was so glad that our photo ticket numbers where 2-5, so we were one of the first people that day.

At 9:30 Jensen arrived and then everything just went by too quickly. As it was my turn I went up to him, greeting him with a warm “Good Morning” and he smiled back and said “Hey, good morning to you, too” I took my position next to him and he asked “How are you?”. At that point I was really thankful to manage a “Really fine” because I was so overwhelmed by everything. His freckles, again; - now even closer. The way he was smelling… oh and of course my hand on his left side! Whoa… Yeah, then the photographer snapped the picture and I had to leave. I thanked Jensen for doing all this and he turned back at me, smiling (dead again, btw) and said “No, thank YOU”

At the same time the Photo Studio with Jensen was taking place, Alona was on stage. Again, I missed everything of her stage talk, which made me sad. But I’m still glad I was at the Coffee Bar the other day. So, after our “Jensen OMG…” experience, we went for Justin Hartley and Alan Ritchson autographs. I had a huge Green Arrow photo that I’ve brought with me and I wasn’t really sure if he would sign it (because it wasn’t really allowed to bring unofficial stuff) So, after he signed the pictures I bought at the con, I asked nicely if he could sign that poster as well. He looked weird for a second but than smiled and said “Sure” *g*

At 10:45 the Nicki Aycox and Brooke Nevin stage talk began. Both very cute and nice, although I was a little bit more impressed by Brooke. I love her wry sense of humour *g* They again told us about the pranks on set and that Jared and Jensen just love to do that. (please, give me a job on that set…. any job!!! *g* ( michaela3105 u know what I’m talking about, right *lol* I’m still having nightmares about the looks from everyone at our table at Breakout)

Well… anyways… after the stage talk was over, I couldn’t stop myself to buy more trading cards! (and it was really worth it, because now I’m the owner of a little piece of Jensen's t-shirt and jacket… lol Me? A little obsessive? Nooooo....)

We didn’t really went for lunch that day, because we were hanging around the lobby, waiting for the afternoon panels… and queuing for them was really a nightmare. The schedule for the stage talks was: Justin Hartley, Alan Ritchson and last but not least Jensen Ackles. So everyone else had the same idea like we did. Already getting good seats for Justin and then holding that seats for the Jensen talk. Well, we had more luck than the others because although we were send away a couple of times we managed to get seats in the second row. :)

The Justin talk was funny again and I was sad that it went by too quickly. At the Alan talk chaotic4life faith_mars and I went to get our Alona, Nicki and Brooke autographs while michaela3105 queen_haq and caedn stayed in the main hall, holding our seats.

Yeah, and then the real nightmare began! As we came back from the autograph room, we saw that they had thrown everyone out of the main hall. Later we heard that there was some kind of problem with the air conditioning, so they had to clear the room. But at that point we were all really pissed. Everyone had to queue again and we thought that our seats in the second row were all gone now.

But thanks to queen_haq and caedn (at which point I’ll love you forever for this) managed to keep our seats!! So, as we were allowed back into the main hall, they waved at us and we went back to the second row :) (yeah, picture me very happy at this point *g* )

Before the Jensen stage talk began, they had a little auction and that showed me again, that people just have too much money!! *lol* I wish I could pay 400 pounds for a single photo… but sadly, I can’t.

Finally, Jensen went back on stage!! *squee* And he was much more relaxed than the other day. Again he patiently answered every question… Oh yeah, and I think you’ve already heard about the fanfic question, right? *lol* He brought the word “Wincest” up all by himself!! Twice!! lol I was always wondering if they really know about that. *lol* I have to admit… it was really funny, but also very awkward. When you meet a star you don’t talk about fanfiction… that’s just a no-no. And now everyone knows… all the other convention guests were on the balcony listening to this and I don’t really think that’s very good. But hey, then again Jensen brought “wincest” up all by himself… so… *lol* I really would have loved to see Kim telling Jared and Jensen about those “special” stories floating through the internet… *rofl*

After the stage talk was over every guest came back on stage, thanked the fans for being there and told us that they had a wonderful weekend. And then… it was over! :( It was really over and I couldn’t believe it. The two days went by too quickly and now it’s a long wait until the next time.

Later we went back to the english pub, grabbed something to eat and then hung out at the hotel, talking about the weekend and going through our pictures. You know, fangirls in their usual habitat... lol

Yeah, I’m really sad that everything’s over now. I had the best time and I can’t wait for Asylum 2 –hopefully with Jared! And I hope to meet more LJ-people! Missed a lot of you :(

Thanks again to michaela3105 faith_mars chaotic4life queen_haq and caedn for making that weekend pure joy and a fantastic fun time!! You guys rock!

Thank you for posting this. I was waiting for that to link it,LOL
Yes, Jensen looked more relaxed the second day but the timing in all these was bad. I mean, you couldn't attend everything and four things in a hour!!
Jennifer: Jaredlaughdaydreamer1984 on May 29th, 2007 04:55 pm (UTC)
awesome review!!!! LOL i would love to see Jared dancing around in a tutu!!!
tinkabell007tinkabell007 on May 30th, 2007 08:18 pm (UTC)
Yeah... I think Jensen would like to see that, too! lol

and Jensen told that he likes it very much, got it a while ago as a gift from Jared. I’m not quite sure if I heard the next part correct, because we were standing a little behind, but he also said that Jared has the same one and just had to buy one for him as well.
These guys are seriously KILLING me!

Thanks for sharing! :D

dude I was on row four and had to sit through all the three hours of interviews before so we could be close to Jensens panel on the sunday then they threw us out and we got back in on like row 22, I was beyond pissed. Most uncool of the organisers, but I had an awesome time and I'm glad you did too, thanks for the recap.
tinkabell007tinkabell007 on May 30th, 2007 08:17 pm (UTC)
yeah, them clearing the room before the Jensen panel on Sunday really sucked!! I hope for future cons they'll be better with stuff like that. They pissed off a lot of people that day. Sorry to hear that you had not so much luck with your seats afterwards :(

Funny, I was looking at Jensen's watch in the autograph queue too, it was a really cool watch! :D Thanks for sharing, Jensen and Jared are just too adorable to be true.

Awww!!! That is quite possibly the CUTEST thing I've heard in a week. It's a good thing I wasn't there, because I doubt I'd be able to stop myself from grinning like an idiot.
tinkabell007tinkabell007 on May 30th, 2007 08:12 pm (UTC)
Oh believe me, I covered the "grinning like an idiot" part for the both of us *lol*

The watch story is one of the cutest Asylum stories *draws hearts* So Jared bought Jensen a watch, a camera and PSP. I wonder what Jensen bought for Jared??? Oh man, my mind goes dirty ways LOL

I wonder what Jensen bought for Jared??? Oh man, my mind goes dirty ways LOL

You dirty, dirty girl!! But don't worry... been there! I'd say his heart, body and soul also a watch? *lol*

Yeah, I think I'm still a little dead - and definitely suffering from PCD (post con depression) *g* It still feels so unreal... I really met Jensen, really talked to him. Sometimes I think it's just a dream lol

Yes, he brought the word "wincest" up twice. The second time someone asked when Sam and Dean finally hug properly - and Jensen said "I thought we moved on from the wincest" If you like to watch Jensen answering both questions, I posted the clips here: http://tinkabell007.livejournal.com/24209.html

Yeah, I think, one day J2 is going to get us all killed!! Those two are just too cute for words!

And you're very welcome! Glad you enjoyed the report :)

Btw, I just friended you back. *waves at new LJ-friend* :)

Wow, thank you for posting this. I hope you don't mind a completely random person commenting...
Aw, the possibly matching watches thing made me go all gooey inside. It also reminded me of that Friends episode where Joey and Chandler are 'bracelet buddies'.
