I went to see 'The Muppets' today with my baby brother. It was awesome. I don't think the kids in the audience understood half the jokes, but all the adults had this dewy-eyed look of youth sentiment about them. And I have to say, when they all started singing along to the Muppet Show theme tune and 'Rainbow Connection' and 'Mana Mana', I had to blink a few times, too.
Go see it if you're a child of the 70s/80s and grew up on the Muppet Show!
Onward now to fic. The Supernatural hiatus has been extended to 4 weeks, no pickup yet, and ontd_spnparty , my go-to for everything SPN, has been suddenly shut down. I feel I could do with a pick-me-up, so I will go now and re-read Your Apple Pie Suburban Hell Happily Ever After by everysecondtues. You should, too!
The Story: AU from episode 5.22 Dean is called back from retirement by Becky when she discovers Chuck has gone missing. She puts the band back together to find what took him, and they find more than they bargained for.
The Love: Hilarious, heartwarming, and feel-good. Best characterisation of Becky ever. I love how grumpy and exasperated Castiel is about his new job, and Dean's general confusion throughout the entire story, and that Becky basically runs the entire show (she has Dean barefoot in the kitchen making sandwiches!).
