This is an odd...request? - September 9th 2013, 01:29 AM

I started watching Supernatural today and I told my mom I started to watch it and she automatically jumped into it all "Is it about witchcraft." "I'm worried about you becoming obsessed and then worshiping Satan." Not her exact words, but you get the picture.

Honestly it's a little tiring. She did the same with Merlin and I mean. It's Merlin. I'm not going to become obsessed with witchcraft and try to become a witch or anything like that. So how do I get my mom to not worry about this kind of thing? Usually I just don't watch those type of shows around her but it's getting kind of old.

For example, you could say the same with those stupid crime shows. Someone always dies in those and my mom watches them. Is she going to become a serial killer? No.

I'm honestly not sure how much you can do. There are some themes in Supernatural that go against some religions & such, so I know people who avoid that & movies like Harry Potter for that reason. She's still letting you watch it, right? She's just going to have to trust you. Hopefully someone else has better advice, but I don't see many ways of convincing her otherwise besides just not going all satanic?

Maybe you could explain to her what this is about? Oooh and don't be afraid to come and have a supernatural chat with me, I love it!!!! Who's your favourite character so far? And how far along are you?

Sorry, Im getting off of topic! Anyway....

You could slightly soften it too and say it something like two brothers trying to find their dad whilst protecting people from the paranormal and so on a so forth (I won't ruin it for you! ) Maybe you could get her to watch one episode? Although to be fair the first episode isn't the most gentle episode of the series... But maybe she could watch another one?

I seriously doubt you're going to worship Satan, as long as you don't become completely obsessed and start talking Enochian (if you haven't seen it yet, you'll probably start hearing about it in series 5, I think, ) I think you'll be fine.

Anyway, I think I'll stop now as my huge love of Supernatural seems to be shining through this post. Oh and maybe say to her that it's educational as it includes things about different religions and legends in it.

Let us know how it goes and don't be afraid to have a chat with me about anything! Supernatural related or not!

Spikey!!


And she turns up the music, to drown out her life.

22/12/2014 was the last date I self-harmed. The longest I have gone so far is 1 year, 2 months and 5 days. This time, I hope I can give up! New record: 1 year 6 months! Yay!!
