Chicago Report - Part II  

Sunday… oh boy…

Breakfast was scheduled at 6:30 am. Fun… not! We got up around 4 am to get ready. Usually with 4 girls and only one bathroom it would be quite chaotic, right? :D It wasn't at all. We were just fucking tired. But the thought of seeing J2 live and in flesh in a couple of hours kept us going.

We managed to look quite decent and went down to the main hall around 5:30 –
b/c we wanted to be first in line! *insert sarcastic laugh here* It turned out that some ppl were sleeping down there ALL night *lol* But we manged to grab a table in the first row anyway, so it was all good.
Breakfast seemed to last forever. (the part where we were waiting for the two Js of course)

And FINALLY… around 7:30 they entered the stage. And my mind went all blank. There.He.Was…. JARED. Live and in flesh… (I know, I’m repeating myself but well, it’s my report… so get over it :P ) I’ve been waiting to see this man live for sooo long and it was difficult to process the fact that he was finally standing there, looking all gorgeous with his long legs and black coat and shaggy hair, his smile all bright and shiny, waving at the audience. Jensen looked gorgeous as well… of course :D But it didn’t feel so sureal to see him live again. But with Jared it was different.
And as soon as they were on stage, the usual J2 banter/fun/flirting/joking started. It was so awesome seeing them live.

The boys were on stage for like 25 minutes. I bet you all have seen the video already so I don’t think I have to upload mine :D Usually it was planned that they’d be going from table to table but after they’ve heard how many ppl paid so much for the gold package, they decided to stay on stage the whole time so that everyone got enough time seeing them.

Do you remember the point/have you seen the part at the beginning where Jensen was pointing at a huge Sam banner on the wall and went all “I wanna know what I have to do to hang that in my bedroom”? Well… I guess he has to visit me, because I adored this banner the whole weekend (there might have been some drooling as well :D ) and later this day they auctioned it off… and well, I kind of bought it *sigh* You don’t wanna know what I’ve paid! No, seriously… you don’t wanna know!! :D


But it looks sooooo pretty! :D *happy sigh*

The breakfast went by too fast and we had to line up for the photo op thingy. On the way to that I was searching my bag for my cell phone because I just had to give michaela3105 a call. I think I was talking a mile per minute so she had problems keeping up, but I just had to tell her about finally seeing Jared live :D I have no idea how long we’ve talked (it was actually the second call I gave her this weekend) and I honestly don’t want to see my cell phone bill LOOL But it was so worth it :D

The Jensen photo op line seemed to be forever and it took us about 30 mins to finally get our picture taken. So, here comes a bit of disappointment of the weekend. I know there’s already been quite some Jensen bashing out there. This is just fucked and wrong in so many ways. I still can’t understand ppl doing something like that and call themselves “fans”. Gahhh *shakes her head in disbelieve* I’m just saying that I was a little bit disappointed about Jensen’s attitude at the photo op thingy. There was the “no touch, no hug” policy. So, basically he was sitting there, his hands propped up on his knees and everyone just went up, stood besides him, tried to smile and left. I think 90% of all Jensen pictures turned out horrible because ppl were just afraid to not do anything wrong, while feeling uncomfortable with the whole situation. I get it that Jensen doesn’t like events like these – and that if it’s only up to him he wouldn’t do conventions at all… I’ve also heard that he wasn’t feeling well the whole weekend… so I don’t know. At some point I truly understand him – especially with what happened at Asylum con but it felt kind of odd anyway. *shrugs*

You could see the contrast between Jared and Jensen the whole weekend – but especially at the photo op thingy. Jared was the complete contrary. He gave everyone who walked up to him a big smile and you didn’t even have to ask for a hug or anything because the second you were standing besides him, he grabbed you with his huge arms (OMG THAT MAN IS HUGE) and pulled you close. Afer the Jensen photo op I so did not expect that.
At first I put my hand on his hip but then noticed that he already slung his arm around my shoulder, so I reached up and did the same. DUDE, I felt his muscles. *takes a deep breath* (I know I’m in full fangirl mode now … sorry! *lol* ) He is soooo well-conditioned.
And I have to say, as much as I hate my Jensen picture (I look horrible) I just LOVE my Jared picture *does snoopy dance* I’m happy.

As my picture was done I left but turned around and thanked him. He was already looking at the other direction but then looked back, smiled broadly and said “Thank you so very much” I looked him directly in the eyes and I just remember me going all “omg, he’s so pretty” in my head :D I know, it’s so girly and cheesy but I don’t know, I just couldn't help it. He was just awesome :D
Now, I love and adore this man even more :) Everyone, seriously, you have to meet this man some day!!

Next thing on our schedule… STAGE TALKS! Jensen was the first one on stage. I think he needed a little bit time to warm up and get in the whole Q&A thing... And he was much more relaxed later as Jared entered the stage.

Again, I’m not going into detail for the Q&A thingy because I’m sure you have already seen the reports and videos :)

Just one more thing about Jared… again I was so impressed by his relaxed and natural way of being on stage. This man smiles ALL THE TIME… everytime someone asked a question and introduced them self he also went all “Hi, I’m Jared” looked the person in the eyes and smiled, his eyes all bright and shiny. I truly loved it. He gave the asker the feeling that he’s only there for him, giving him all his attention.

At some point a woman went up to the mic and said something about Supernatural has saved her life and that she had a present for him and Jared was all touched and moved, jumped down the stage and gave her a huge bear hug! *love*

The J2 panel at the end was one of the best things ever and I’m so sorry for everyone who couldn’t be there and experience this live! These two together are so awesome. You could truly see the “love” and “adoration” for each other. They are truly BFFs, always looking out for each other :) *insert happy girly sigh here*

Of course the panels went by too fast and the last thing of our J2 filled day was the autograph panel. The boys didn’t talk much (at least not as it was our turn) But I think this was because of the following reason: A girl in front of us had like 20 things to sign (I’m not exaggerating here.. she had like 20 posters, pictures and mini Impalas that even Jared’s bodyguard had to butt in, helping to hold them) *sigh* That was quite bold of her… other ppl also wanted to get their stuff signed. After she had left they had to rush a lot of ppl just through to stay in schedule. So, my autograph session went like “hi… thanks” :( But anyway… I finally got my huge Supernatural season one promo poster signed!! Wohooooo.....!!

Oh by the way, Sandy and Danneel were sitting at the side the whole time and Sandy looks just soooo cute and beautiful!!! And if I didn’t know that the other girl was Danneel, I wouldn’t have recognized her. I think she’s pretty as well, but well, she doesn’t have this “special” something… I don’t know how to describe it. *g*

The rest of the day we spent squeeing over J2, went to the last few panels with Steve and Mark and just had a good time :)

I also finally manged to meet emerald_angel9 *yay* And later we went to grab some dinner in a near restaurant. It was so awesome meeting you, I hope you guys (sorry, I already forgot the names of the other girls *hangs her head in shame*) are thinking about Asylum next year!!!!

Okay… that was Sunday… my J2-Squee-Fest :D

Next up…. Marion and Martina heading downtown… meeting Mister Ficker! :D (And I guess for all of you German speaking folks the name is quite funny … But it’s really true. *lol*)

Man, thanks for talking about the whole Jensen photo op thing. I've been hearing there's been wank about it/him, but I steered clear of it, because the last wank about him really got me down.
Hm, it *is* kinda strange, this policy. I mean.. I never heard he did that at a con. I respect that wish of his and maybe it really was because he wasn't feeling well.. then again, they could've just said that and everybody would've felt less akward about the situation.

I know there are people who really just can't handle having strangers coming to close to them or having physical contact with them, and maybe, he's one of them.

Don't see the need for wank though, but it seems as if people jump on every single fucking thing to put Jensen down lately. *shrugs*

However. Blah. Sorry.

You obviously had the time of your life - I expected no less ;D, but I'm still glad to get it confirmed.

You know, it could be as simple as Jensen felt a nasty illness nasty coming on, like a cold or flu, and simply didn't want to risk passing it on to his fans, which is why the request for no hugs. Or by the time the photo taking session came along, he was feeling REALLY lousy and not only didn't he want to risk passing it on, he just wasn't feeling up to standing next to one fan after another. Perhaps he was feeling achy, feverish, or just bone-tired? I like giving people the benefit of the doubt, especially people who are normally very kind to fans, which Jensen usually is. It sounds to me like he was simply not feeling his regular, chipper self, and it ALSO sounds like Jared was trying extra hard to be take some of the pressure off his friend. Love, Robin
sparklingrocks on November 21st, 2007 08:43 pm (UTC)
Yeah, that's pretty much what I've been thinking too, after reading this report now.

Especially the part about him not wanting to pass anything on to the fans. God, I hate thinking of Jensen feeling sick. I'm such the mother hen, I really am. *pets Jensen*

From the videos I've seen it really seems like Jared tried to take over as often as much as possible - I already thought so before hearing about Jensen possibly not feeling well. *draws hearts around Jared*

I love 'em. ♥
[vanessa] call me miss shameless.vanee on November 21st, 2007 09:31 pm (UTC)
i can only say this about the jensen i met at asylum, but i didn't have the impression that he can't handle having strangers coming close to him - he pulled me into his arms for the photo i took with him, which left me surprised because i wouldn't have expected that from him. so i think that at chicago, it really was just because he wasn't feeling well. :)
sparklingrocks on November 21st, 2007 09:40 pm (UTC)
The poor thing - and now people bitch him out for it. I really hope the guys never hear about the shit some people talk. I remember the wank about this interview he gave only a few weeks ago. The things people said. *shakes head sadly*

Anywho, thanks for putting in your two cents - I had seen a lot of pics from the Asylum and already found them to be proof enough that those wank-festers are wrong. Still is good to hear it from someone who was there. :D

*glares at haters and points to icon*

Exactly! It was like two different persons. After meeting him at Asylum I already had this picture of him in my head and then as we walked up in the photo op line and they told us about this rule, I was just disappointed and really wondered what had happened. Then I thought that it maybe was a Creation rule or something. But it wasn't the same with Jared so I had no idea what to think of it.
tinkabell007: J2tinkabell007 on November 21st, 2007 09:50 pm (UTC)
I don't see the need for wank either! It's fine that everyone has a different opinion and that they try to express themselves but that doesn't mean that they get to be disrespectful or mean, b/c that's just wrong.

I had the Asylum experience with Jensen and it was like two different ppl. (especially at the photo op) so whatever happened before/during the con, it really affected him in some way.

I think it's just sad that a lot of ppl who had met him for the first time in Chicago now have THIS picture of him in their heads
sparklingrocks on November 21st, 2007 09:55 pm (UTC)
I see how it's sad for people, especially because many probably didn't only meet him for the first time, but also for the last.

Still.. happened to me before too and didn't result in me dissing the person. I knew he wasn't up to par the day I met him, so I was cool with things the way they were.

I do get why the situation at the op was awkward though - just imagining it makes me feel that way.

The only thing I wish they would've handled differently is, that they could've told people the reason for the policy that was set. But then, shit happens and maybe he didn't want everybody to know he's not well.

I'm just glad that there's obviously so many more people respecting Jensen as a person, than those who just induldge in respectless and hurtful wank.

(Hence the one about this interview of his not so long ago. The things people say. Even hurt *me*.)
tinkabell007tinkabell007 on November 21st, 2007 10:14 pm (UTC)
are you talking about the interview where he kind of mentioned but not really mentioned his gf and ppl went all crazy about it? Gah, as much as I love this fandom, there are also some ppl I just hate... :(

And yeah, I think it would have been a smarter move to tell ppl why they came up with that rule. Now lots of ppl just think that Jensen's ignorant or feels "too special to do hug pics" That really saddens me.
Lillilisullivan on November 22nd, 2007 12:52 am (UTC)
Why would they wank about Jensen Ackles having a girlfriend? It's not the first time he got one...I didn't even know there was a wank about that.
Plus, he couldn't have gotten a better girlfriend. Danneel is such a dork, she's so cute. I really like a work on OTH, eventhough the show is a piece of crap.

I'm sorry for what happened at the convention. He was probably not feeling very well, and eventhough it didn't turn out that well, he thought it was better to be there and to do his thing rather that cancel the whole thing. Some people are very rude and completely delusional...
Unfortunatly it's the case in every fandom and also in every domain in life. Some people are just plain stupid, end of discussion.

I think if i ever met Jared and jensen, which is highly unlikely, i would be speechless and blushing furiously! I can't believe you saw Jared, i'm so jealous of you right now!! lol

That's a very good question - I dont get it either. But just a few hours later there'd been some "ugly" posts about his interview and the mentioning of said gf.

I only have one explanation: Some ppl are stupid. End of story. I guess we'll never know what's going on in their heads, they truly live in another universe or something like that.

Dont worry, one day you'll be able to meet them as well :) What about Asylum? It's "just around the corner"! Or is it too expensive? :(
sparklingrocks on November 23rd, 2007 03:46 pm (UTC)
*lol* Nicely put - yes, that's the iv I was talking about. I'm just glad we agree on the haters. :D

I hate for people to think of Jensen like that - and I hope that many will change their opinions once they're over their initial disappointment.

Jensen Ross Ackles
Hi everyone! I am new here :P But, I wanna give you my opinion about the Jensen behavior in Chicago, I know it´s a old topic,but, I really wanna talk about that.

A lot of you, said, that Jensen felt bad, well, if he felt bad, why he don´t got something to be fine when he was with the fan, And, in this part, I wanna say, that, If he felt bad, why he was chewed chewhing Gom? I mean, you saw the way that he was doing that? it was awful, and Jared has a chewing gom too, and he didn´t chewed in that way! I know, Jensen is a human like us, but, he must knows that he is a artist no one is that, and for to be that, he must to get respect to his fans! And, he has to knows that if he must to do a mayor effort to be in a normal way, or at least in one way that he dosen´t offend to the fans, what is that about " don´t toch" OMG! this part of him, he must to think,There are a lot of people like much of you, that flew for a place so far from Chicago and for that, he can´t to have this behavior, it´s inconceivable. Someone have to tell him, that if he continue with that attitude the fans going to go and left him alone. he is not the greatest artist or something like that. If he want to have a fans, and have the show more time on air, he has to change his behavior and, of courseeee to apologize with the fans, who he did that!!!! And, he didn´t do that! I am really upset. I want to delete mostly of his photos, he dosen´t deserve a big place in my computer. I wanna kill him!

Well I hope you can get me, see you around!
Marion: Fuck Offfaith_mars on November 25th, 2007 09:16 am (UTC)
Re: Jensen Ross Ackles
You should apologize to all the readers here that had to read your comment here...

Are you serious? You're complaining how Jensen chewed his chewing gum??? Again, are you serious???

I don't even know what I should say to the rest because the more I write the more I'm getting mad and angrier and really want to hurt you physically.

Go on, delete his pics. You don't even deserve to have them.

Re: Jensen Ross Ackles
I mean I get that some of the fans were disappointed because Jensen was a bit reserved. Obviously it wasn't his best day. I met him at the Asylum con and sure he is not as open as Jared is but he was real nice and very kind to the fans even though he got juped by a crazy girl. He is only human and maybe it's because of poeple like you he sometimes acts that way. You wanna kill him? Are you aware that he is a real person??? And that threatening to kill someone is a crime? Just because you say it over the internet doesn't mean it's okay to make a threat like that. Go and delete his pictures, forget that he even exists if it makes you happy but don't go around and say shit like that!!!
