Anonymous asked: Can I ask who the "her" is in the song about Kevin? Is it his mom or am I just thinking too literally?
'You look so sad but you didn't even know her,
so I’m leaving all the lights on.’
It’s about how the Winchesters will act sad and remorseful, and obviously they are! I mean, they know that Kevin has had it hard. I’ve left it vague that it can apply to both his mother and his girlfriend, as they were both hurt. (then killed)
And, though the Winchesters may have respected and interacted with them, they probably weren’t close enough to feel a serious impact upon the death of either of those lovely women. If it weren’t for Kevin’s presence, they would acknowledge the deaths and move on straight away like they often have to do - they face a lot of death and you can’t spend too much time on all of them or you go crazy with guilt!
It’s an expression of 'If I weren't here you wouldn't even care, and I know that, and it hurts that I'm alone in true grief'. I imagine Kevin may have felt like that, as it’s true; the Winchesters didn’t know either of them well enough.
Filk, fandom’s own musical genre, has been around for decades. Usually defined as folk music inspired by sci-fi or fantasy fiction, until recently it was the dominant type of music in fan culture.
Then Myspace came along, and with it came Harry and the Potters, and a whole new generation of fandom musicians who could record whole albums on their laptops and form bands with people they’d never met in real life.
However, most of her songs are completely original. Aside from a handful of other Top 40 adaptations (Taylor Swift/Star Trek, anyone?) she’s written three albums of her own fandom-themed music. Two are inspired by Supernatural, and the third is a Hannibal album titled “EAT THE RUDE.” [READ MORE]
