OMG! O.O

I have to share this... I was just getting ready to finish up my Latin homework for tomorrow and checked my e-mail one last time. Sitting there waiting for me was a comment for my own blog, pertaining to this post.

In that post, I figured out the Latin exorcism rituals that they use a lot of the time in Supernatural and I attempted to translate them after completing Latin 2 last Spring. Now, I know some of the translation is wrong, but I'm pretty sure the Latin transcription I constructed is correct. Anyway, so I got this comment:

"Hi there! I'm Keith R.A. DeCandido, author of the Supernatural novel Nevermore, and I just wanted you to know that this post was IMMENSELY helpful in the writing of a particular scene in my upcoming second Supernatural novel Bone Key. Your name and blog URL are in the acknowledgments and everything.

Thanks much!"


I don't know if this guy is serious or totally bs-ing me (you never know on the internet these days), but if he is serious... I'm just... totally blown away. *squeals*

Hey... could you send me an e-mail? I had to put my laptop through recovery and lost your address. :( Bleh.

Well, that's just really cool! Thanks a lot! I didn't really doubt, but... you never know with some Supernatural fans. There have been incidents of scamming like this in the fandom before where people claim to be people that they aren't.

Understandable. :)
