From a newbie’s POV:
So, I’ve been in the SPN fandom for not even a year now, and that’s not nearly long enough to get to know the actors.

I’m not degrading them in any way, it’s just… With Misha Collins, he throws something your way, just when you think you know him. I’m still learning and I just… It is so hard to put into words how much this guy is an inspiration to me. I literally am speechless. It’s why I have to collect all these little bits of information about Misha and keep them, so when someone asks, I can just throw it all at them and say ‘read’. Because there’s no easy way to put into words how much Misha does, how nice he is, how perfectly human he is. He’s like the shiny new toy a child wants to wave under everybody’s noses. You just want to walk up to people in the street and shake them and say ‘Why don’t you know Misha Collins? Why don’t you know what astounding things this man has done?’ Of course, Random Acts aside, he has this amazing personality that’s just so free.
And it’s who I want to be. I want to be this person who gives, like Misha, and just doesn’t care. I could go on. We all could. Misha Collins is a brilliant man.
I know that because of all this, people tend to compare him to an angel - and not just because of the role he plays.
But you know what I do? When I stumble across yet another flawless, perfect thing that Misha has said/done/is going to do, I tag it as such:
