The Campbells are NOT Mulvaneys - THESE Are Mulvaneys!  
And now that I have you all on the edge of your seat...let me ramble at you about more things that I insist are real - BECAUSE THEY ARE! (Things I believe to be real - As All World Turns including Sam/Rob and Misha/Richard 4evah! 5 X Everything is a real boy band and Jared and Chad are actually on The Mickey Mouse Club. And The Mulvaneys & Co are really on Show!) Clearly, I'm watching a different show than all of you, because my Show has The Mulvaneys and they are awesome cool and even The Winchesters think so.

I love them. /sigh/

They came along years before the Campbells and are way, way cooler.

Here, let me explain. Years ago - I can remember this at least as far back as 2007 - baylorsr and liptonrm started talking about how SPN needs some younger generation of hunters. How they need hunters who do their job because they love it. And baylorsr may have also insisted that The Winchesters don't burn things enough. So they came up with their own characters, that they eventually - after months of saying things like, "If the Mulvaneys were there, they would have burned that place to the ground."..."If the Mulvaneys were there, Frannie would have just shot that guy, because I mean, he's evil, hello."..."If the Mulvaneys were there, Charlie would have gone home with that skanky waitress just then." - turned it into an AU, titled "Super Pretend Natural." They made an episode guide, a character guide, an actor guide...like a whole Super Pretend Natural Wiki and also like a whole community where they post fan mixes and snippets of behind-the-scenes that they write up.

Recently, I started writing some Super Pretend Natural fan-fiction. I plan on posting it here in my LJ. Because I love these characters to smishy pieces.

There are a few characters outside of The Mulvaneys, but let's just start with The Mulvaneys. They are from Detroit. They have many cousins, that we talk about a lot, though only one of them ever makes an appearance on Show. <--that's right, because it's real, don't tell me it's not!

The Mulvaneys love their job. They love being hunters. And they are damn good at it.

Let's meet them, shall we?

Frannie is the oldest. She is tiny and kick ass and even Dean and Sam are afraid she might kill them. In fact, Sam is really afraid that she might kill him, because demon blood is wrong, Sam! She is smart, having graduated from the University of Michigan - represent my home state! She loves her brothers more than anything in this world. She is Crazy-Cakes, but she is Awesome-Cakes as well, and it's possible that I am both frightened and turned on by her.

Here, have a picture of Frannie. Played by Leah Cairns.

Chandler is the eldest of the identical twins. He is smart and kind and good at listening and research. He was set to be Frannie's partner on the hunt, but by the time he graduated college, he felt God had another plan for him. Chandler went to be a priest. Needless to say, Frannie had many things to scream about that, but in the end, what can you say when your brother is called by God. Chandler helps by doing research and storing items in the church's basement and absolving Charlie of that thing he did with that waitress last night. Occasionally, especially involving demons, Chandler will join his siblings on the hunt. And yes, 7th Heaven fans, it is Jeremy London as a priest named Chandler. Originally one of the Winchesters ask them about a priest outfit in their truck and Charlie jokes that they have a brother who is a priest named Chandler. It was an in-joke for CW fans. Only Jeremy Carver didn't get that it was a joke and wanted to write the character of their brother who was a priest. In the end, Jeremy London agreed to come on the show and do the part and thus the little joke turned into a full blown fan-favorite character.

Here, have a picture of Chandler, as played by Jeremy London.

Charlie is the younger of the identical twins. He is not so smart, but he is kind and good at his job and loves his siblings more than anything. He is charming and fun and sometimes trigger/explosive happy, but he always gets the job done and he is good at following orders. I kind of see Charlie as the way Dean would have been on the job, if he hadn't had to take care of everyone and everything his whole life. After Chandler left to join the priesthood, Frannie screamed at Charlie to get in the truck, and Charlie got in the truck. Now he hunts with Frannie and he really, really loves it, except, you know, his sister is buckets of crazy. Well, maybe not buckets of crazy.

The majority of my fan-fic is about Charlie (which I only realized when I was flipping through it to see what I could post that would introduce you to the characters.) What can I say, I love Charlie! He is my OTH - One True Hunter - not to be confused with my One True Husband, which is Joaquin Phoenix. I even wrote Charlie het...yes, I wrote HET!

Here have a picture of Charlie, as played by the delicious Jason London.

As for The Mulvaney family history - Their father was a hunter, as was his father before him. Go read the opening scene to the episode "D'Yer Maker" which is set during Season Four between "Monster Movie" and "It's The Great Pumpkin, Sam Winchester".

"D'Yer Maker" write-up - scroll down to the Quotes section and read the first bit, it's The Mulvaney family history...In fact, read all the quotes, it'll give you great insight into The Mulvaneys.

And, if you like zombies, have the behind the scenes write up of how Supernatural and The Mulvaneys ended up doing promos for Max Brooks' Zombie Survival Guide. This will give you all kinds of insight into these characters and the awesomeness they bring to Show.

The Mulvaneys take their zombies seriously.

In regards to SPN episode 6.01 - Basically, I was just bored by The Campbells. I think they didn't have enough time to really introduce them properly, which is why they should have left them for another episode. You meet The Mulvaneys on Show and in the first five minutes, you LOVE them. (Who just shouted out that Super Pretend Natural isn't real? Who said that?!)

It's just The Mulvaneys kick ass and The Campbell Cousins bored me. Watch me eat my words when by like Christmas, I'm running around writing Campbell/Winchester slash left and right and declaring my undying love for Christian Campbell. <--I can't believe they named him CHRISTIAN!

Also - here, have the Super Pretend Natural Wikipedia - (for lo, it is The Awesome)

And join the community - (for lo, it has fan mixes.)

That is all.

Hmm, think I'm gonna have to bookmark this post, because hell yes do I need more of your realthingsthatarereal, but I really don't have the time to invest in this that I want right now. So bookmarking it is... *sighs*

because hell yes do I need more of your realthingsthatarereal,

That makes me all blushy, baby.

I know you love it when I babble at you about things that I am convinced are real even though it makes no sense to anyone else.

Just read the first two snippets that I recced. I haven't even read the whole SuperPretendNatural Wiki because it is long. I only read it when I need answers to things so that I can write fan-fic on the characters.

This reminds me...I need to be uploading my SpretendN icons though.

Love this post. :)
YES, they named him Christian! :P
dodger_sister: carlson-boots-dodger_sisterdodger_sister on October 5th, 2010 05:07 am (UTC)
Thanks! But why did they name him Christian? I suspect Sera Gamble is a closeted-Kane fangirl! I bet she writes Carlson/Kane fic too! lol
wolfrider89: chriswolfrider89 on October 5th, 2010 06:08 am (UTC)
I suspect Sera Gamble of being a closeted slash fan, too. I just can't decide who she ships. ;) But yes, she's definitively a Kane-girl. Who wouldn't be?

Hey there! Nice to see you again. :)

Sorry, I don't read reviews for 6.01 or any other. I just don't, in general.

I'll just say that you're probably right about the Campbells; not enough space or time. I wasn't excited about them. I guess I just prefer when the boys are together alone. You know? Just the two of them.
dodger_sister: everyoneknows-domo_meadodger_sister on October 5th, 2010 05:13 am (UTC)
Oh, dude, I know you prefer when the boys are alone together, lol. If they were naked...well, all the better. /thinks about them naked together for a minute/ ;) But yeah, I don't mind extra characters, but they have to be interesting enough to make me want them on my TV. I know I find the boys interesting and it might not be fair that I stack The Campbells against them because it's the boys, but if the cousins want to play in the big leagues, they better step up their game.

Or die.


But in general, this post wasn't about the actual show of SPN - but about my sister and The BFF's SPN AU - wherein they made characters that are so much more cooler than The Campbells that I wish everyone would go read about them.

You should go read about them. There are identical twin brothers and I plan muchly on slashing them. And comparing their man-pain and True Love with The Winchester Brothers. It's fun! <--I'm aware that's messed up and I don't care, I love man-pain.

I don't understand. Who are these Campbells you speak of? And there aren't any Mulvaneys on Show? What are you even watching?

However, it's the truest of trufax that Frannie is awesomer than everyone. And if you can't solve a problem by blowing it up than you have stupid problems.
dodger_sister: almostoutofminutes-quoth_thedodger_sister on October 5th, 2010 05:19 am (UTC)
IDEK what is going on...who are The Campbells and where are The Mulvaneys?! What is happening? Wait...maybe I have it on the wrong channel. What station again?

I heart Frannie in a scary way. Not that the way I love her is scary, just that she is. But I would totally let her order me around. And...this just got weird.

And if you can't solve a problem by blowing it up than you have stupid problems.
