Not implying that Kripke is a vampire, but you know. If you can think of a better title, go for it. :)

Anyway, if you could play 20 Questions with Kripke or anyone in the cast/crew, what would you ask? Off the top of my head:

- What about Jensen and Jared made you choose them? Their personalities, their previous work, what?

- WHAT were you guys smoking when you wrote "Route 666"? You had to have known introducing a former love interest of Dean's would have a huge impact on the audience's view of his character... what made you choose to do this so early and what made you think it was a good idea to wrap up such a storyline in one episode? And why weren't you more careful to choose an actress that had good chemistry with Jensen??

- Is there a significant reason why Dean's eyes bled in "Bloody Mary"? Is there a significant reason for Dean's sniff and "All things considered" line in "Nightmare"? Are the boys ever going to discuss what happened in "Asylum"? (Some of these may be answered later in the season, but some I'm worried never will be.)

- How much say does/has the WB had in the direction of the show? On a related note, are there any plans to introduce a main female character? If so, I might have to hunt you down and torture you with pliers and bamboo shoots. You must resist the urge!

Aaaand, that's all I can think of for now. Don't know if this is a good topic, since it's doubtful any of these questions will be answered. :/

Kripke, dude. Do you realize all the bad karma you're going to have to burn off to make up for "Bugs"?

LOL!! I can totally hear the inflection of that question in mind. :) (And I'm glad they wrapped it up in one episode, we don't need more than one episode of love sick, pussy whipped Dean :))

On a related note, are there any plans to introduce a main female character? If so, I might have to hunt you down and torture you with pliers and bamboo shoots. You must resist the urge!


If you can supply the pliers, I know where we can get bamboo. :)


Now I need to think up some good questions of my own to not get answered.

Dude, what is up with the whole "Dean doesn't know what he's doing even though he's been doing this for four more years than Sam"thing?

I wanna know about that too. Why the hell does Sam always figure it out and Dean doesn't?

Why the hell do you pimp Sam so much in the supernatural sense. Wouldn't it make more sense for Dean to be the better one and not Sam? What the hell is that about?

Dear Kripke,

Way to not follow up on Sam's telekinesis, re: Writing Desk of Doom. Do you plan to make use of his super power, ever again?

Jared: 'Fess up, bro, how much do you spend a week on teeth whitener and tanning sessions?

Jensen: How much quiche did you end up eating for the auction scene in "Provenance"? Maybe lay off the gummy bears for a while...

Kripke: Admit it, you've always wanted a license plate that said "The Krip," haven't you?

Set/props people: How will you ever top the disco porn suite? This I gotta see.

simpatico, I am going to abduct the Kripke and tie him to a chair, so that you can interrogate him. ALL your questions rock, and I really want the answers.

Does Dean remember more about the night his mother died than what he told Sam in Home? And also from Home, will we have see that box again that they got Jenny?

Here's a mini-ton:
Are we going to find out why Dean has no powers and seems to be the HULK SMASH brother, and Sam is Emo-kid with telekinesis/visions of the year? :)

In Dead in the Water, Dean lets a bit of what he saw with his mother out. Do you plan on exploring that any more?

Who gave you the crack for Route 666 and Bugs? And have you made that person vanish off the earth forever?

What is it with Dean and stuffing his mouth all the time?? (Quiche, sausages, etc)

Will there be an explanation down the road of why Sam's telekinesis doesn't seem to always work?

And why, oh why, do the monsters keep trying to strangle Sam every week? Does he have a neon sign that says, "Beat me and strangle me!" taped on his back? :)

And keep trying on the hotel rooms. The disco/porno suite was hilarious.

Are we supposed to be sympathetic towards John in any way, shape, or form? Is he the kind of character we're supposed to feel sorry for and root for despite his mistakes? Because he is SO NOT.

Um... ditto. I have a guess, but I don't think that's you meant.

What was the purpose of Missouri? Were you trying for comic relief and just failed miserably or is there an actual purpose to introducing such a distasteful character?

Why didn't the gun that can kill anything (credit to Drunken Bee) kill CD? Is Sam just a bad shot? Did he wait too long? Does this demon have special powers against the gun?

Who decided that walking and holy water was a good plan to beat Meg and no-name demon? Are you trying to confuse us with this "John is a great hunter" theme that we never get proof of? Also, why create a demon character, build him up, and then kill him off without so much as naming him? At least give me something to call him when I complain on the boards about the whole unfortunate episode.


I might have to hunt you down and torture you with pliers and bamboo shoots.

I'll bring the rope! No annoying sidekicks ever! That includes you John.

- In your eyes, has the shows success been because of the writing, the leads, or a combination of both?
- How far ahead have you planned regarding storylines?
- Would you ever let Jensen or Jared write/direct an episode?

Just posting to say I totally agree with whomever it was that coined the phrase "Kripke is the fangirls' pocket pet" in the posts that were eaten by the great server crash. I believe feeding him cookies may have been involved.

We just have to decide what type of cookies to feed the pocketKripke. I vote for chocolate chip cookies of doom.

I totally missed this. Is he seriously working on other projects now?

Well, Playthings nailed it for me: Kripke is TOTALLY a boards-reading fangirl. The number of shout-outs were too many to count: mocha henley! angst! why do people think we're gay? "you're short"!

You bastard - welcome to the fold.

Dear Mr. Kripke [You bastard!],

Please reassure us that you do, in fact, have a plan for getting Our Dear Boys out of the legal/plot jam they appear to be in (and a plan that doesn't involve some of the horror scenarios envisioned in the episode thread). You don't need to share the details of your nefariousness with us, just put our wee angsty minds at ease that the all-seeing, all-knowing Kripkeeper will, indeed, save the day.

Love,
bdsk

PS. Sam and Dean in uniforms/disguises? Totally hot. But you knew that already, didn't you?

Dear Bastard!Kripke,

Thanks a fucking lot for addicting me to yet another kick-ass song. Not only have I switched mobile providers so I could have Carry On Wayward Son as my ring tone, but now I must constantly listen to Renegade. Just when I thought my addiction couldn't get any worse, you pull this awesome shit. You bastard, you rock!

Your bitch,
