Hi there!!!

Maxii here, or Stephanie as I'm known on Stalkbook. (Facebook for those that aren't hip with the new lingo) You've probably seen me around commenting on most of Lauren's stuff, especially her yummy pictures. Mmm Karl Urban.

Posting is a little early today.. well not nearing 5 mins to the deadline, I guess because I work later and there are 4 pretty fires threatening to burn my city down. I think someone gave Lauren matches and she went a little nuts. Bad girl.

To tell you the truth I'm not an avid blogger. I'm a writer, so my posts (how few) over at my blog, Harmonized Insanity, consist of writing talk and fics. (What? I learnt all the plugging from Jordan!)

Today's topic is about the show Supernatural and my favorite recent obsession Angels.

Supernatural is a show on the CW about two brothers, who battle everything you're littl mythology and urban lore brain can think of. Vampires, werewolves, wendigos, Rugaroos, spirits, demons and most recently angels have been added to the mix.

I do believe Dean says it best about the appearence of angels in the show.

"I thought angels were supposed to be guardians. Fluffy wings. Halos. You know, Michael Landon, not dicks.

The angels are far from what most people imagine: comforting men (so to speak) with a harp in hand, creations of God perched on our shoulder to be at our whim when needed. Instead they are true warriors, fierce proud soldiers bent on preventing the next apocolypse, and they will do anything, sacrficing anyone to meet their goals.

The most forefront angel is Castiel:

Castiel is the angel who pulled Dean from hell, and is the one who interacts with the brothers the most. Castiel is the obedient solider, following orders to the letter, never questioning. But as he spends time with the boys he realizes that something is wrong and he begins to have doubts, to question the orders. He turns from a mindless drone into something with a concious...

The angels, who inhabit bodies beacuse their true form blinds us humans, are even willing to start a civil war among themsevles (much like the first fall) to achieve their goals. What starts as mindless beings obeying orders becomes a war among everyone as they feel, and learn what it's like to be human and they are plauged by the same tempations we are met with every day.

As the book of Revelations starts to unfold in the series, and the brothers play a part to either prevent or perhaps indirectly help push it forward, the angels are there. A glowing force no longer just behind the curtain but now center stage.

And every Thursday I'll be there, hacking the internet from the cold city of Moscow, watching for my pretty angel. Shallow, I know, but the prospect of angels, mixed with pretty boys are too much for me to resist.

Goddess Maxii, out.

P.S. Someone tell Lauren to hurry up and get back. I'm so lonely at night. I need my no-sleeping-at-night buddy back!

Sam: "Dean, there's ten times as much lore about angels as there is about anything else we've ever hunted."

Dean: "You know what, there's a ton of lore on unicorns too. In fact, I hear that they ride on silver moonbeams, and that they shoot rainbows out of their ass!"

Sam: "Wait, there's no such thing as unicorns?!"
