When [livejournal.com profile] counteragent said that she wished Supernatural had cast Chuck as a woman, my first thought was, why stop there? What if they'd cast Dean as a woman, Sam as a woman, Bobby as a woman, Castiel as a woman, Lucifer as a woman -- in short, an all-female cast?

Then I realized that what I was imagining was basically Supernatural as reimagined by the Takarazuka Revue. Here's a clip from a performance of Rose of Versailles:

Perfect, right?

So what shows (movies, books, comics, etc.) would you want to see with an all-female cast?


But that trick never works!

Totally spoiler-free Reason #83 why I'll never be on the writing team for Supernatural:

I would have pitched a mid-season reveal that Castiel and Ruby have secretly -- suprise! -- been in cahoots all along, spying on the brothers and devising nefarious schemes, as the Boris and Natasha of the apocalypse.

By which I mean -- and would illustrate through the power of flashbacks! -- that they actually use Boris and Natasha as codenames and terms of endearment for each other. And naturally they'd speak in cartoonish Russian accents during their illicit rendezvous. No doubt at different points, Ruby confuses Sam and Castiel baffles Dean when they each accidentally lapse into the Russian accents but unfortunately the brothers don't compare notes until it's too late. Nor does it help that the Winchesters somehow never see through the outrageously transparent disguises that Ruby and Castiel adopt.

Of course Castiel and Ruby would contemptuously refer to the Winchester brothers as "moose and squirrel." And when their treachery is finally revealed, Sam and Dean will fight over which one of them is Rocky to the other's Bullwinkle.

...I swear it sounded great in my head....

(The show, that is....)

1. How long until a fan attempts to perform an exorcism on Jensen Ackles' girlfriend?

2. Rampant pandering: run-of-the-mill fanservice, or opening Pandora's box?

3. Misha Collins: reckless, endearing, or SPN's version of Eve Harrington?

Enquiring minds run screaming in horror shrug and go back to thinking about The Sarah Connor Chronicles season finale, still hoping for a third season.
