This year for my duo photo at Heroes and Villains I decided to do one with Stephen and Robbie Amell. I adore how it turned out! I was the filling in a cookie sandwich between cousins. :-)

The last two gals I met were Caity Lotz from Legends of Tomorrow and Ming-Na Wen from Agents of SHIELD. Loved them both! It was neat because Mae is always so serious on SHIELD but Ming-Na is so happy and funny! And Caity is just awesome. Sarah is serious a lot of the time, too, so it was nice to see her smile and laugh. :-)

And that was MY weekend. How was YOURS?  :-)

The second person I most wanted to see at Heroes and Villains was Brandon Routh. I’ve been in love with him since Superman Returns. Then I was thrilled when he got cast on Arrow and now on Legends of Tomorrow.

I got his autograph on Saturday and thought I was going to faint being that close to him! LOL! OMG, he’s drop dead gorgeous! And so freaking TALL. I can’t even tell you how lovely he was in person. So kind and sweet and funny. He was like a big kid. He really enjoyed interacting with his fans.

I told him how much I liked him in Superman, that he channeled Christopher Reeve so much that it gave me the chills and I didn’t think I’d ever have the opportunity to tell him that. He was really touched! Then I asked him what his favorite costume on Legends has been and he said the knight from the Camelot episode. I found out later at his panel that he campaigned hard for a Camelot episode because he loves that legend and playing a knight on the big screen has always been a dream goal for him. Neat!

I got this picture at his table:

And then this was my official one the next day. I got my hug!! SQUEE!

Speaking of Supernatural, Chris and I found Baby at the convention!! Yep, an actual 1967 Impala! It was so out of place among all the Walking Dead and superhero stuff that the con was about, but we loved it! For a donation to charity you got to put on Dean and Sam’s jackets and get a photo by the trunk and also inside the car.

After we put the jackets on (I’m swimming in Dean’s!) the lady said we could choose anything we wanted out of the trunk to hold. Chris grabbed the Colt and me? I grabbed the pie! LOL! Hey, I WAS pretending I was Dean. ;-)

Then we got to sit inside. The passenger side visor was down, and it was signed by pretty much all of the SPN cast. I decided to be a good big brother and let Sammy drive. :-)

What an awesome weekend! I went to the Heroes and Villains Fan Fest here in Chicago with my best buddy Chris. This year they combined it with Walker Stalker, the Walking Dead convention, so it was absolutely insane with the number of people there. BUT, if it hadn’t been for the cons being combined, I never would have met Jeffrey Dean Morgan!

That’s right, after 12 long years I finally got to meet Papa Winchester!! I couldn’t believe I was actually standing in front of him. It was neat, because Chris and I wanted to talk to him about Supernatural, and 90% of everyone else wanted to talk to him about Walking Dead. I think he liked the change of subject. :-)

He loved the Impala license plate I had him sign. He’s like “Wow! What’s this?” and he wrote John Winchester under his name. :-)

I asked if he knew that his bat from Walking Dead actually made it into the episode the other week and he did! He got a great laugh out of it. I said I loved his continuing friendship with Jensen and Jared and when I asked what he liked most about being on SPN he said “Those kids.”  AWWW!! He really is a father figure to them. He said he definitely wants to come back, that he feels John’s story isn’t finished yet. I talked to him a bit about Magic City, too, which I really liked. He said it was great filming a period piece like that.

Then Chris had a good conversation with him, too, calling him her “magical unicorn” because she was sure she’d never get his autograph in his book. Jeff loved that and actually wrote “Magical Unicorn” under his name! LOL!

When we were through, Jeff leaned across the table and hugged both of us. He didn’t do that with anyone else who had been ahead of us! Squee!!

I was very glad I met him at H&V and not at an SPN con, where they wouldn’t have allowed him to personalize autographs or have more than a 5 second conversation with him. So yeah, it was worth the 12 year wait.

My photo with Jeff was later that day. Now he had met hundreds of fans by that time, but as soon as I walked up he held out his arms to me and said, “Hello again, darlin’,” with a big smile and I nearly fainted on the spot! LOL! He pulled me into this amazing hug and when I started to leave I said, “Thanks, Papa Winchester!” and he threw his head back and laughed. It was awesome!! Love Jeff to pieces!!

And here’s my autograph:
