I <3333 mecurtin. So. Hard.

Here's why;

One reason so much of SGA fandom (and even fandom in general) is encapsulated by Written by the Victors is the implication of the title.

"History is written by the victors," right? So conversely, "those who write the history win in the end." And the history is written by *us*, not TPTB. *We* are the victors, we are in it for the long haul, we will re-shape and re-make it long after they've lost interest in their toys and moved on. When the Velveteen Rabbit comes to life, it will be because of *our* love and play, not that of its so-called creators.

Yes. This is *WHY* I write fic. I love my show. I love these characters, this universe, this Atlantis, and just because they *own* it doesn't mean that I have to give it back to them. A part of it belongs to *me* now. And I'm keeping that part. I'm keeping *my* Rodney and *my* Sheppard and *my* interpretations of the SGA universe. I'm not ready to let them go. So I won't. There are so many more stories to tell, and I'm hangin' in there till I've read them all.

**You can read her whole post, SGA final finale: Vegas, Enemy at the Gate, and the nature of canon but beware of spoilers.
