Felicia Day drew huge crowds at the Tattered Cover Bookstore in Denver, CO. Thurs, Feb. 21, 2016 with her book signing for ‘You’re Never Weird on the Internet.’ Like her character of Charlie Bradbury in CW’s hit series ‘Supernatural’, Felicia Day is a pretty much a queen in the geek realm. This beautiful and down to earth actress, writer, and producer first got noticed as her role as one of the potential slayers from season seven of ‘Buffy the Vampire Slayer,’ then found instant stardom in the geek world as Penny from ‘Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along-Blog’, and as creator, writer, and star of very popular ‘The Guild’ webseries. Also known for her role as Dr. Holly Marten in ‘Eureka’, and as writer and star of the ‘Dragon Age’ web series ‘Dragon Age: Redemption.’
I had the chance to ask Felicia how much she misses being on ‘Supernatural’. She smiled with longing and said “Oh I miss it so much. I can’t believe how many Supernatural fans are here today. I’d like to watch some of the episodes, but I have to put them away because it makes me a little sad.”
She took time with every fan to chat and snap photos. Heidi and Sara from the Supernatural Fleet community, presented Felicia with a care package. According to Heidi, their empowering organization “pulls the fiction into the reality just enough to help people identify themselves as hunters, and to give them the power to change the paradigm that they have to surrender or be hunted by their issues.” They send out hunter kits to everyone that signs up. It is all about the pure love, and is all free. The reason it was named a fleet was because of an idea of a bunch of old cars all driving together while following the Impala. Their motto is “whether you know it or not, you’ve been hunting all your life. It’s time to make it official.”
Fans of all ages and interests stood in line for hours for the chance to meet Felicia. Gabriella, 13 and Brianne, 14, were two such fans. According to her mom, Gabriella is not a mainstream kid. She is a big reader and likes science fiction. This confident 3 year old commented that Felicia helps people make people feel like they belong. They loved how Felicia incorporates her personality into her characters.
Ken and his young daughter and stood in that long line. He was dressed as Captain Hammer while his adorable daughter clutched her copy of ‘Dr. Horrible’s Sing-A-Long Blog’ book anxious to get it signed. Another big fan, Erin, said that Felicia was someone she could relate to easily, and was a person she would want as her friend.
