‘Are you sure that you wish me along with you?’
In reply, my friend stared at me without blinking. ‘I have a feeling,’ he said. ‘I have a feeling that we were meant to be together. That we have fought the good fight, side by side, in the past or in the future, I do not know. I am a rational man, but I have learned the value of a good companion, and from the moment I clapped eyes on you, I knew I trusted you as well as I do myself. Yes, I want you with me.’
I blushed, or said something meaningless. For the first time since Afghanistan, I felt that I had worth in the world.
Misha Collins on his Halloween costume
My very first Halloween costume that I can remember, my mother was very excited coz I was, you know, getting my first costume, and she liked to hand-make things. I wanted to be a turtle, and the costume was a cardboard box configured in such a way that I had to crawl on all fours. I guess bipedal turtles don’t exist. I was fucking miserable, and we didn’t even make it to the first house to go trick-or-treating because I was crying. So that sort of scarred me a little bit. It was my first negative experience. Another negative experience was when I dressed in drag.
