1.07 - Hookman (chainedtoacomet):
Sorry for the delay in posting this episode! Jenna was away for the long bank holiday weekend! Also, as a scheduling note, we have decided to forgo “Bugs,” as it’s a bit of a non-episode (that even Chuck was ashamed of), and skip straight ahead to “Home,” which goes live on Friday. Happy reading!
The premise of The Righteous Woman is this: what if Dean Winchester had always been Deanna Winchester? From the very first episode of the very first season, what if one of our beloved sibling heroes was, in fact, a heroine? What would this change in canon? Would it change anything in terms of plot or characterization? How similar would Deanna be to Dean? How would other characters view her if she were a woman, rather than a brutish man? How would other characters treat her?
The Righteous Woman is intended as a collaborative writing project for the fandom. We want to start from the beginning and rewrite seasons 1-5, running each season as a reflection of the show’s own organization with two showrunners (Jenna and Leah) and a team of writers. These teams will be made up of five to six fanfiction writers who will come together, discuss characterization and key plot points, and then divvy up episodes and rewrite the series so that the only major change is that Dean was always Deanna.Find out more on our official tumblr, The Righteous Woman. We are now accepting applications for Season 1 writers.A signal boost would be greatly appreciated.
I am in this!!! I’m a writer for this, and I am so excited and it’s awesome!
“Cause, as he puts it, ‘you can’t torture someone who has nothing left for you to take away’.”
BOBBY: “And you? How are you doing?”
DEAN: “Seriously, Bobby. It ain’t like he’s hexed, you know? I mean, what if this is the kind of crazy you can’t fix?”
BOBBY: “Yeah. I’m — I’m worried, too. But… humor me for a second. How are YOU?”
DEAN: “Who cares? Don’t you think our mailbox is a little full right now? I’m fine.”
BOBBY: “Right. And weren’t you pissed at him when he said the same thing just a couple hours before spilling his marbles all over the floor?”
DEAN: “Yeah, well… I’m not Sam, okay? I keep my marbles in a lead friggin’ box. I’m fine. Really.”
BOBBY: “Course. Yeah. Just lost one of the best friends you ever had, your brother’s in the bell jar, and Purgatory’s most wanted are surfin’ the sewer lines, but yeah, yeah, I get it. Right. You’re — you’re FINE.”
BOBBY: “Course… If at any time you want to decide that’s utter horse crap, well, I’ll be where I always am — right here.”
DEAN: “What, you want to do couples’ yoga or you want to get back to hunting the big bads?”
BOBBY: “Shut up. Idjit.”
