The anon sent me the links,and this has got to be the best “scandal” since the Bacon Babes calendar. Misha was at a party on the night of Oct. 18, so I don’t think it’s true, but still…

Oct. 18, 2014: babasboyfriend: Misha Collins was in the store tonight and none of us gave a shit.

Oct. 18, 2014babasboyfriend: Am I about to get dragged by the Supernatural fandom? I didn’t even tag anything. Can they smell it?

Oct. 18, 2014: Anonymous asked: It showed up in his tag. And it was rude. I’m not reblogging it because I don’t support people being hateful to awesome, charitable people, but just thought you should know it’s in the tag and not appreciated.

babasboyfriend: He’s also really insecure about the size of his feet.

(and I wasn’t being hateful, I was making an observation that no one cares)

Oct. 18, 2014: Anonymous asked: “He’s also really insecure about the size of his feet.” Should I know what this means? No reason for him to be insecure, they’re huge - like other parts of him.

babasboyfriend: they’re really not.

and enough.

Oct. 18, 2014: babasboyfriend: I was having a conversation with a coworker questioning why men consistently ask for shoe sizes that are clearly too big for them and get defensive when we point out otherwise? Is it because they think big shoes = big dicks and they want to advertise that on their feet? 

Oct. 18, 2014: babasboyfriend: Misha Collins has big feet! OK! There I said it!

Babasboyfriend, I like your hipster ennui, and no doubt that your feet are simply huge, but I do hope that this isn’t true for your sake. If you’re gonna make fun of a customer on your blog, don’t use their name, and certainly don’t pick a celebrity with a rabid fan base and then imply that he has a small dick. That’s just common sense.

Anon, can you provide the source? (Links can go in “submit”; if it’s you’re personal experience, just say that.)

I don’t feel comfortable labeling a guy who’s above average height “small.” It’s not about Misha’s ego; I doubt he’ll ever see this. But other people are reading this, and some of them have body image problems already, and I don’t want to make it worse by pushing an unattainable ideal.

It’s not just girls; guys have eating disorders and self-esteem issues, and making fun of a man for being “short” (a label which is often used on guys of average or above-average height) is pretty cruel considering that there’s nothing he can do about his height, and guys who wear heels get made fun of more.

The other thing is that Jensen and Misha are practically the same size. Jensen is just slightly taller. Their shoulders are the same breadth as well. Misha isn’t tiny compared to him, but that shows up in fanfic a lot as part of the trope that the “more feminine” person of the couple has to be shorter and smaller than the “more masculine.” It’s kind of messed up, really.

Anonymous said: Same anon! It was some dude who works in a store in Vancouver (he was like "Misha Collins came into the store tonight and none of us cared lol" so he was already being a dick) and then went on to say Misha was self-conscious about his size - and then said, in response to "he has big feet!" said "No, he really doesn't." I would consider a 12 to be pretty big (I wear a women's 11 and I consider that pretty flipper-like already, so Misha wears the equivalent of a women's 14.)

I don’t know if that’s true. Would he really have the time to go shoe shopping the same night as the 200 episode party? Maybe it was just somebody who looked like him and that dude was mistaken.

It also doesn’t sound like Misha to be self-conscious about his shoe size when he’s not body-shy; he’s 5’11” - 6’0”, and to me, his feet look normally proportioned in relation to his height:

A “head” (the distance from the top of the head to the bottom of the chin when standing upright) is 1/8 of someone’s total height. The average length of a foot for both guys and girls (from the back of the heel to the toes) is 1 1/4 heads.

Regardless of whether it’s true or not, it’s a real dick move to make fun of a part of someone’s body when you know that they’re self-confscious of it, especially a customer.

Anonymous said: Thanks for answering the shoe size question! I saw some jerk who works in a shoe store say that Misha came into the store the day of the 200 ep party (and no one cared he was at the shop.. sure, buddy.) and said he was self-conscious of his foot size and had small feet. I was like, bitch please. Have you seen him???

… tell me more. is this someone you know personally or something you saw online?

I’m pretty sure Misha’s feet are normal sized for a man of his height. I’ve never really thought about it much; I don’t have a foot fetish.

i like that if you Google “Misha Collins buying shoes,” you get a bunch of articles about him and the Random Acts people buying shoes for a boy and his father at one of the first RA events.

Anonymous said: Do you know Misha's shoe size?

Yes. I’m ashamed to say I do.

I was asked that exact question before, and I was like, “I don’t know, I’m not a stalker!” Then I found out by accident. U.S. size 12.

That’s a super tough question.

He’s brave and stubborn, like a Gryffindor.

He’s smart and witty, like a Ravenclaw.

He’s friendly and kind, like a Hufflepuff.

And he’s ambitious and devious, like a Slytherin.

The Sorting Hat is going to spend a long time on this one.

I agree with all of these points… which I’m pretty sure means that by HP universe rules, the predominant character trait and/or the one valued highest by the person actually being sorted is going to determine which house they ultimately end up in. In which case I’m gonna go with Hufflepuff.

Ah, but question is what house would 11-year-old Misha want, not grown-man Misha. So what was Misha like at 11? What did he value?

  • "I was fat when I was little [….] I weighed the same when I was eleven as I did when I started college. […] and I wore plaid polyester pants with plastic boots. […] I got beat up some, but I don’t think it was terribly satisfying for anyone." (source)
  • "the kind of stuff I used to do to my Mom was just terrible. I was a horrible, horrible son.” (source)
  • "We were on welfare and very poor for some time and we were homeless for a while. When I was eleven, we were taken in by [friends who let us live on their] farm for several months. They were unbelievably generous with us. They gave us essentially room and board for months because they knew we didn’t have a place to go, and they enabled us to feel like we weren’t a burden there, by allowing me to work on the farm and to earn my keep. Of course at eleven, I was completely useless and probably more in the way than anything, but it was just like an extension of their kind act to allow me to think that I wasn’t a burden there, and so I would go out in the field and transplant leeks and rake hay into rows and things like that." (source)
  • "I didn’t really quite fit into any groups. I  wasn’t a stoner. I tried repeatedly to smoke pot and enjoy it and failed every time. I was kind of geeky but wasn’t a nerd, because nerds do extremely well in school, and that wasn’t my style." (source)
  • "I had planned to be a senator when I grew up. […] I was going to go to law school and be a contributing member of society and I’ve given all that up." (source)

  • "Nuclear holocaust was a big [fear] for me. My mom was very sort of politically active, and we were always going to like nuclear freezone protests, and she wanted me to stay educated about it, so she was always talking about the prospect of nuclear obliteration. And it really started to freak me out. For some reason, when I was growing up, bright sunny days, with beautiful weather, I was horrified. Like, I would go into depressive spells. Like, “This is all going to be completely gone when we all go up in a ball of fire.” So that was a big one for me. I used to have nightmares constantly." (source)
  • " my younger brother, we grew up in Massachusetts. My parents split up when I was three and my mom moved across the state, a hundred miles away from my dad, and every other weekend we would go visit him on the bus. We would take the Englander bus line and go see my dad. It was a long bus ride, three hours. […] And as we got older, on the return trip my dad would give us the money for the bus, and we’d be like, dad we’ll take the train and the bus, you relax, and then we’d just go down to the interstate I-90 […] and we’d hitchhike home, and have pocket money. We started doing that when I was like eleven and he was nine. Anyway, seriously though, hot tip: as an adult, I have tried to hitchhike a few times, I’ve had some weird and unpleasant experiences. As a child, any kids in the audience: if you’re a kid hitchhiking it is a cinch. Everybody will pick up a kid with his thumb up on the side of the interstate. So just keep that in mind." (source)

I think, given Misha’s ambition and cunning, that he fits into Slytherin more than any other house.  I also think that he wouldn’t want to be in Slytherin (and with his family background, he’d hardly fit in), and that he’d request Gryffindor because, you know, it looks better on a resume than Hufflepuff or Ravenclaw.

Vicki would definitely be a Gryffindor. In fact, she has a lot of Hermione-like traits.

Also, I love that we’re having this conversation.
