One year ago today, timbean
and I found a thing. Well, I found it, and I flipped, and I showed it to her, and she flipped. It was this picture:
MY GOD, thought we, then embroiled in the madness of Boondook Saints and Supernatural. He looks like a missing Saint!
And so we found Aidan MacManus, or perhaps he found us.
Yes I know that's a picture of Christian Bale (at the time, however, I didn't know it was from Batman Begins because I hadn't seen it so..whatever). Aidan is Christian Bale, or at least he's an original that looks like him. He's pretty like that. He is also awesome.
Aidan was originally a character crossing two fandoms, but over the past year he's come into his own - Aidan no longer inhabits a world solely defined by the Saints or the Winchesters, but by his life and experiences (and you are welcome to play in his world over at aidanverse
). He is extraordinarily special and wonderful, and he's been difficult at times, but I'm so grateful to know him and to the wonderful Tim for making him real, to jou
for helping expand his life and finding the man Aidan loves, and herongale
, and soda_and_capes
for being extraordinary people who let me talk about him and visit him and who are special and neat anyway.
So today is Aidan's birthday, and he is 27 years old (shhh, he was born in 1981, what you say). Happy birthday Aidan! You really are one in a million. ♥
