Cast Change

Cast Change.

This is such a fun daily prompt!

My favorite show is Supernatural but I don’t know that I could change any of the actors on it and have it still be that awesome. Plus the show only has like 2-3 main characters. But let’s try.

 

For those of who you don’t know, here is a brief blurb about the show:

Dean and Sam are the Winchester brothers who are unexpectedly drawn back together after years of separation when their dad goes missing. They were raised on the road helping their father to hunt the evil in the world: werewolves, vampires, demons, ghosts, etc. Later in the show they encounter a larger array of characters both evil and benign but there are a lot of shades of grey in this show which makes it complex and interesting.

 

So if I had to do replacements, I would cast myself as Dean and my younger sister as Sam. I think we have the best familial relationship that can translated to on screen fun.

I think our mom would actually be cast as their dad (John Winchester) because she is more of a hardass, get-shit-done person, but I would have my dad cast as “Bobby”, who is their mentor in later seasons and an old family friend.

The yellow-eyed demon is an interesting one, I think I would cast my friend Leslie for that role. Her voice and attitude would work wonders for the character.

Fellow Hunters, Ellen & Jo, a mother/daughter team would be my Uncle Paul, the one trying to protect his daughter from getting involved with another Winchester, and my friend Krysten, the one who goes behind her mom’s back to get involved with a case after being told “no”.

Ash, electronics expert and resident weirdo would be my friend Tony the Tiger. He has a beard instead of a mullet but I think it could work.

Castiel is an angel and friend and for him, I think I would pick my friend Alex, because the dead pan humor and the lost in translation aspect are things that I think she would do well.

The Trickster is a pivotal character although we don’t see him often, so I would cast my older sister as him. The character actually has more depth than we first think and her personality would bring a lot of life to the role.

Sheriff Jody Mills would definitely be my Aunt Lynn. She is tough enough to get it done but the first appearance/relationship with her child would be well done by her.

Kevin would be my friend Kosha. She is the intelligent, hyper-focused one who would be totally blown away (and terrified) by the idea that she is a prophet for God.

Garth, I would have to cast my older sister’s boyfriend, Tom for this part. He is tall and geeky, quietly in control but not taken seriously until he shows up and kicks ass.

I don’t think I’m missing any major characters. some of them are from later seasons, so I hope that’s not too confusing. If you’re into the show, I hope you enjoyed this and definitely let me know your family/friends casting!

Song of Myself

I too watched “The Breakfast Club” last night on ABCFamily and as always, some new thought strikes me while I view. I cringe and laugh in equal measure and even cry alongside the characters, re: Johnson asking about what happens on Monday.

This time, it made me reflect back on my own formative high school years and how often I judge the generation that is now in those shoes. What stories and secrets are hiding behind the smiles and the cell phones? How has the world changed in terms of how people relate since I was in high school less than a decade ago?

So when I saw this post by Slightly Chic, I thought it would be a good time to evaluate who I think I am and who I thought I would become back in high school.

If you had asked my high school freshman self where I thought I would be in 10 years (holy crap, has it really been that long?!), I probably would have said something about living in California, maybe in med school, maybe living in a house on the ocean.

If you had asked my high school senior self where I thought I would in 2014, I would probably have said that I would be married and working at a well-paying job and own a house probably on the east coast but not in my home state. I may or may not have mentioned kids but animals would definitely have been present.


So what’s the reality? Who am I today?

  • I have a Bachelor of Science in Management from a top business school
  • I am currently re-enrolled in school, after a 3 year break, to get my Master of Library Science
  • I do not have a high-paying job but am currently a GA which pays my tuition plus a stipend (perks!)
  • I am not married
  • Nor do I have any kids yet
  • My cat died this past December, a fact that I am still not over, so no pets at the moment
  • I am a blogger
  • I am striving to be a role model to young women
  • I have written (and edited at least 7 times) my first novel
  • I am seeking a literary agent to help me get published
  • I am an avid reader
  • I am addicted to CWTV, in particular Supernatural and The Originals (I miss Smallville!)
  • I seem to keep moving further from my home state
  • I have no idea where I want my first house to be
  • I am once again living with family (living with children gives you an interesting perspective on life)
  • I have an amazing support system of family and friends
  • According to Jung, I am now an introvert, although I used to be an extrovert
  • I know I want to teach college courses later in life
  • I might go on to get my PhD

So what does all of this actually add up to? Well I’m not sure. But I think it means that I’m simply human. And in fact, I’m very happy with my life. Being in school is a great opportunity for me and if I could get paid to go forever, then I would. I want to make a difference in the world. I want to leave a mark, I want to be heard. I’ve realized that there are plenty of types of love that can fulfill you, not just romantic love and that true friends are always there for you.

There is no right or wrong answer to who you are, because you are who you are. You can change that and become who you want to be if you work hard enough (but most people don’t put in the effort). Labels are only powerful if we let them be. Example: I was watching the Disney channel (hey, I live with a 10 yr old girl now) and a great Friends for Change commercial came on with Raini Rodriguez (from Austin & Ally, in case you are wondering) who talked about a leadership camp she attended and how their discussions on bullying and labeling really impacted her.

I love that so many young people are getting involved and trying to make a difference in the world. And I hope that it continues to be that way. And that I get a chance to do the same. This blog (and my twitter: kataweb416) are my start.

So who am I?

I’m Katherine (Kat) Webber, author, poet, dreamer, introvert, friend, caregiver, sister, daughter, granddaughter, cousin, student, woman, nerd, reader, blogger, writer, foodie, traveler, planner, and enjoyer of life.

Who are you? Who do you want to be?

(PS – I stole the title from one of my favorite Walt Whitman poems  of the same name.)
