Supernatural returns from Hellatus this week - and so does Cas! Best of all, for the first time in three months, Dean and Cas will share scenes!
With Metatron involved, this episode may all turn out to be a fiction within a fiction. But we’re excited nonetheless.
To celebrate we want to trend #HelloCas on twitter. Let’s try to get it going around 8pm EST so that it will have a chance to trend during the East Coast airing an hour later.
We also want to support our friend Robbie Thompson and get great ratings for this Team Free Will episode! So don’t forget to tag with #Supernatural too, starting at 6pm EST and going to 1am EST. If you’re international, append OUSA to your tweets so fans in the US can retweet you to count for domestic ratings. And you can keep on retweeting through 5am EST to increase the audience size of the original tweets.
Don’t tweet with more than two tags, however, as it may get your tweet flagged as spam.
Confusing? Here’s the punchline:
Join us on twitter Tuesday evening. Tweet #HelloCas & #Supernatural.
If you don’t have twitter, now’s a great time to join! Follow us and find fellow shippers at @Destiel_Network. Worried about toxic atmosphere? Follow @SPNAntibullying to be aware of trolls to look out for and resources if you run into trouble.
The last time Castiel graced our TV screens was in Captives, episode 9.14, which aired all the way back in February.
That makes us kind of grumpy.
BUT GUESS WHAT?!
TUESDAY APRIL 15TH CAS IS BACK!
We at the Castiel Fan Network want to give him a warm welcome, and we want to do that the best way we know how, with a ratings boosting twitter watch party!
Here’s how you can help:
-If you are in a Nielsen houshold, watch live on your television. This is how US television ratings are measured. If you’re not sure if you’re a Nielsen household, you’re not. But there are still ways to make your watching count towards ratings!
-Record the episode on your DVR even if you do watch live. DVR viewings are counted into Nielsen numbers. Make sure to watch the recording as soon as possible, the earlier you watch the more it counts for the Live +7 and Live +3 Nielsen numbers.
-If you don’t have a DVR and can’t watch live, instead of watching an unofficial stream or download, watch (or rewatch) the episode on the official CW Supernatural site. Those viewings count towards ratings too. The episode is normally posted to the website at or shortly after midnight EST.
-Another way to help is to boost the Nielsen twitter ratings. Tweet the episode using the #Supernatural hashtag. Per this article, Nielsen starts counting tweets for an episode 3 hours before airtime, and continues counting for 3 hours after the episode ends, so that gives you 7 hours to hop on twitter and give Castiel your support by using the #Supernatural hashtag. In addition, in the time since our last watch party for 9.17, we found out that Nielsen continues counting views of tweets until 5AM EST the following morning, so if you’re awake all night, keep on retweeting those #Supernatural tweets! Remember to manually type, or copy and paste #Supernatural so it doesn’t autocomplete to the fake #Supernaturai tag!
-Only US based tweets count, BUT retweets hold the same weight as original tweets, so if you have international friends watching and tweeting with the #Supernatural hashtag retweet them so they’ll count too. If you are watching from outside of the US, use the hashtag so we can retweet you! Add OUSA to your tweets to make it even easier, that way your US friends will know just what to do!
-Another thing to keep in mind, per twitter analytics, tweets with more than two hashtags can be flagged as spam, so stick with just #Supernatural and whatever secondary tag you choose! Our friends at @Destiel_Network paired up with our friends at @SaveCastiel and are attempting to trend #HelloCas which we think is a great option for a second tag. Just remember to stick to two tags total, we want your tweets to count!
When we had our watch party for 9.17 in support of Misha’s directorial debut Supernatural made it into the top 5 for Nielsen twitter ratings that night at #5, and Supernatural was the top rated CW show that week!
We want to do even better to welcome Castiel back!

We love Jensen Ackles. He’s gorgeous, for starters, as well as talented, funny, charitable, and an amazing husband and father. He’s fantastic, and the Supernatural family are lucky to have him.
BUT, there’s just something about Misha.
Maybe it’s the knitting? Watching him cook with West? Seeing him wear aprons, dresses, nail polish, and baby Maison? The way he opens up and shares so much of himself with the fans, about his childhood, and his love for Vicki, about his love for his fans? Maybe it’s that when he’s done sharing with us, he shares himself with the world, with Haiti and all his other projects with Random Acts. With GISHWHES. He just shares so much.
Or maybe it’s just that you love Castiel. It’s why we’re all working together, right?
Misha gives so much to us, it’s time that we do something for him!
This isn’t going to be easy either, Jensen wins this poll EVERY YEAR.
Voting is unlimited, so go on, vote your fingers off and win this for Misha!
Thanks again for everything you do!

Title: The sea knows more than we do
Word Count: 8163
Prompt from super-harkness: Jensen takes Misha (just friends but secretly in love with each other) for a ride on his boat one weekend. They enjoy hanging out, swimming and when they want to go home, the boat won’t start and they are stuck there together for one night, because mechanics will come the next day. So they start to drink all the booze on bord, do night- swims and more…
This fic is loosely set post s9. I apologise if this isn’t what you were hoping for, the story got away from me. Please excuse the liberties I took with Jensen’s boat since I have no idea what kind of boat it is and I couldn’t figure it out from the pictures I found. Special thanks to Wendy for her beta work (although the last few paragraphs went unedited so if you find any mistakes, they are my own.) Enjoy!!

So, super-harkness suggested “Jensen as a trainer in a gym and Misha as new member who wants to build up some more muscels. They could work out together, maybe shower, sauna and hot sex :)”
And I wrote a rather lengthy and somewhat sex-less fic focused on Misha’s state of mind:
Then I figured people probably just wanted porn, so I wrote this:
