On October 29th, 2012, the night before my first GISHWHES, I made a promise to myself. A promise that I would get better. That I would find the strength to pull myself out of the pit of anxiety and depression that I had fallen into and I would find a place where I was proud of myself. Becoming a fan of Misha’s and allowing his paradigm on life to influence mine, participating in GISHWHES and finding a family in my girls- it’s saved me. Now, 2 years later, I’m the happiest I’ve ever been, and each day gets better and easier. Now it hasn’t been smooth sailing per say - It’s been an uphill fight the whole way, but on days when the company’s great, some days you don’t notice the climb at all.
But some days are still hard, and something I’ve always drawn hope from is this tweet. I know that it was originally meant as a joke, but something about it was so endearing to me, the words gave me strength on the harder days, thinking that there was someone out there who cared. At my autograph session at this most recent Vancon, I told Misha how instrumental he and this quote had been in giving me the courage to keep going, and asked if he would be willing to write it in his own handwriting, which he did immediately.
So here it is for all of you. If you need a reason tonight to be strong, to hold on- this is it. If you’re having a bad day and you just need to know that there is someone there- take this. I know it helped me, and I hope it can help you too.
ummmm well we interacted a couple of times actually!!
mostly it was about gishwhes and i showed him some of our items and he really liked one so i gave him a copy at his autograph session on sunday (and he later tweeted it ayyy) and that’s where he learned my name!
then after jared and jensen’s panel (and after he tweeted the thing) i saw him waiting for the elevator to go up for photo ops and i jokingly said, “Hey Misha do you want my twitter so you can give me credit for that picture?” and he said,” What? Posting the picture wasn’t enough, are you noT SATISFIED NATHALIE?!?!?!” and I said that I would ask him again at his panel and he said,” Okay thanks!” and got into the elevator.
so then at his panel later that day I did just that and asked him again as well as a different question. here’s a shitty video i took of it
there are some other specifics but mostly it was gishwhes and him saying my name and me dying inside because all my dreams came true ayyy
also he told me to shut the fuck up when i offered to text him the picture and he said fuck karaoke when i asked if he was going to the karaoke party later that night
