It’s very rare that I run into someone that is as obsessed as I am about. . . well just about anything. So imagine my surprise when I saw on my Facebook newsfeed a Castle themed party that rivaled my Hunger Games party last year. It was thrown by a friend of a friend. . ,of a friend so I totally became that stalker Facebook person that looks at all the pictures and “likes” photos that it’s somewhat creepy that she was looking at to begin with. Since I’d already been mostly a stalker I went all out and private messaged her to get the full scoop.
The lovely lady (aka insanely huge Castle fan) is named Becky Bird and unlike me, she has been a fan since the beginning. I didn’t stumble upon Castle until I marathoned Firefly and Serenity a couple years ago and then decided I needed more Nathan Fillion (which then led to weeks of watching Castle every chance I got). However, it’s been the opposite for her. She heard about Firefly on Twitter after become obsessed with Castle and watched it to see some more of Nathan Fillion (after all he’s amazing– it really is necessary to watch everything he’s in– even if it’s a Percy Jackson film).
Becky says that the promos drew her attention, but she says stuck around because of “the incredible writing, the humor, the on-screen chemistry of the cast. I love the “bromance ” of Ryan and Esposito, I especially love the blossoming romance between Castle & Beckett. The intricacy of the plots holds your attention throughout the whole show.” I have to say I agree with her whole heartedly on all of this. We may have approached these fandoms from opposite directions, but we both agree that this series is golden.
This is her second Castle party and has converted a bunch of people into becoming fans (which I read as harassed a bunch of people to watch it until they caved and realized how awesome this show is– or at least that’s what I do with Supernatural). But I have to say she does know how to throw a premier party.
Her predictions for the new season are that after Beckett accepts Castle’s proposal she will go to DC, but will eventually return to the NYPD. She will return because she misses her team at the NYPD, Castle in particular. She feels that her departure will make it somewhat uncomfortable when she comes back because they will have adapted to her not being part of the team anymore.
We will see soon enough and kudos Becky for showing me that I’m not the only one that get crazy obsessed about shows or books!
