I'm in ur county, watchin' my show - SQUEE!

I am currently in Snohomish.

Man, I love the Pacific Northwest SO. FREAKIN'. MUCH. I'm just sayin'. If I wasn't in Vancouver, I'd be in Portland. *sigh*

Anyway, I am spending the weekend hanging out with trystel and tuto. They graciously invited me and the kiddies months ago, but this is the first time that it has worked out for all of us. YAY!

I switched shifts with a guy at work so I could take the 5:45am start this morning and get out by 2:15 - and as much as I am NOT a morning person, I really MISS working that shift. Seriously. I'd give up my Saturdays to get that shift back, I kid you not. Anyway. I was hoping that I would avoid the worst of the border traffic by getting their earlier.

Dude. There were like 5 cars ahead of me. Suh-weeeet!

Poor trystel has a miserable cold. Ironic. I have been fighting a cold all week as well. It sucketh. Or as pir_anha so succinctly put it once upon a time - it sucks very large boulders through very tiny straws. We hope that we are both of sufficient voice to do some singing tomorrow, because she has been working up an accompaniment for my filk "Atlantis Shines" and I am really looking forward to hearing it. She's so talented!

On Sunday I am going to head over to see cflute and run some songs with her before heading back to Vancouver. We rarely get a chance to sing together. I wish I could make it down more often.

I think that the Conflikt songbook is coming along nicely. We have some lovely submissions for it (OMG GEEKY songs and MATH!! ::flails::)

So I was just sitting and chillin' with them this evening, discussing books - tuto was totally trying to sell me on George R.R. Martin, who I have heard good things about, trystel was pimping Robin Hobb to me, who is someone on my 'to be read' list, and I was spouting off about David Webber and LMB. This lead to the Fantasy v.s. SF discussion, and that they are BSG addicts, and I brought up the SGA because duh! Best show on the air right now! and hey! It was almost 9pm and THEY WATCHED SGA WITH ME!!


Oh, the fan girl SQUEE of watching my show as it AIRED instead of having to WAIT! Goddamit. It's going to make next week SO much harder to face. There were TEASERS! Ev0l bastids!

OMG I love Teyla. And Sheppard! And RODNEY OMG!! ::loves::

I know there are people on my Flist that think Season 4 sucks. Well. Sorry. I love this show. I love it ALL! Every episode, even the cringe worthy moments. I don't dissect it the way I did Buffy and spend time wanting to beat the SGA version of Marti Noxon to death for what she did to my characters. I love my Rodney and my inconsistent John - because I think that's consistent with his character, actually. Hee! Mostly, I LOVE ALL THE AWESOME FIC I AM GETTING! NEVER NEVER STOP my PRECIOUS FIC WRITERS!


Now that I am done with the insane obsesso-SGA-fangurl portion of the post...

Oh. Actually, that was it. Kthxbi.

I posted my episode notes, like always, but I was SO happy to see Lorne and Teyla together. They are my secret het love in SGA fics :)

::squee:: That is so cool that you got to see it as it aired.

BTW thank you again for getting me addicted to SGA, I got the first 3 seasons on DVD for xmas because my family was sick of listening to me whine that I needed them.

Have a wonderful weekend!

The fic is amazing, hence why I keep watching. And the cracked out AUs and crossovers are just too good to ever resist. Srsly.
Jan. 13th, 2008 04:55 pm (UTC)
Oh! Cracked out AUs, huh????

I think I have one up your alley, Lizzinator..... go check out lantean_hive - totally cracked AU that goes off Conversion from s2 - they didn't find a cure for the retrovirus and John makes Lizzie his queen and they start a Hive from everyone on Atlantis. Much hotness ensues.....

Then, there's sga_coven - Lizzie's a Queen Vamp, Heightmeyer's like an immortal witch and Sheppard's a mortal detective who knows too much and is very much enjoying being between Lizzie & Kate.

I've got like an excerpt up from another AU I'm working on over at Lorne_porn - I'm still waiting on my slow beta reader to finish working on, but for shame! She *gasp* having a social life this weekend... :-p (If you want to see the rest of it - you should have my email address still, shouldn't you? Same name at yahoo - I try to keep all fannish stuff going to this addy & keeping "work" stuff at my name addy. :p)

Oh! Shad! I have more ficcage for you - I think I got the one Lorne scene worked out that you asked about in the primary AU fic.

I found a LOT of the crazy AUs out there; I think spygate is my favorite so far. harlequin_sga is good for lols, and and there's lots of goodness. This fandom attracts all the good writers. Wheeee!

(P.S. I think I figured out a way to combine the Stargate and Star Trek universes. O_o)
Jan. 13th, 2008 10:10 pm (UTC)
Oh yeah... there are some really good writers out here in SGA. You should read Havocthecat's stuff - she's the one behind the 2 AUs I mentioned. Medie, is another, and so is irony_rocks - who is doing a vamp/werewolf AU - Shep's a werewolf who accidentally made Liz one and she is having too hard a time accepting being the pack lead female..... (I just wish she'd post another chapter soon! :p)

Mine, well, I kinda took her idea and went crossways with it.... I started this thing that was like supposed to be a spoof (yeah, making fun of catgirls in fandom and I thought, "Okay, I'll do a twist & turn the SGA folks into cat people...") but it kinda got away from me. It's like 130 pages and I'm still nowhere close to being done.... I haven't gotten to Rodney's most snarktastic line of all that was what got me started on this thing. :p

Oh, I JUST found havoc's stuff last night 'cause she apparently rec'd me. So much good fic, so little time.

I love IR's stuff. She's so freakin' fantastic.

There's a sudden upswing in vampire/werewolf AU fics in this fandom. Interesting. (One day I'll write the Replicators as zombies and make it into a vampire-zombie war, because that would be awesome!)

My obsession-fic-of-the-moment is this one because it's Jason Bourne/Elizabeth Weir and hi, hotness.

I think it's because of all the folks who've been turned off by the "Crotch of doom" aka Mary-Sue!</s> Anita Blake and her insane author, LKH.

All the SGA fans who've read her her stuff are probably going, "Man, we can write better than her in this fun universe!" :-p

('twould help if I use the <> in the right spots! :-p)
Jan. 14th, 2008 06:29 pm (UTC)
*has no idea what you're talking about* Bwah?
Jan. 14th, 2008 06:46 pm (UTC)
Laurell K. Hamilton - St. Louis based author - if you've never read her stuff, be grateful. It's gotten progressively worse over the years, but somehow, she keeps topping the best seller lists. She writes bad porn disguised as horror/romance on vamps & werewolves for her Anita Blake series (lead character sleeps w/ anything male these days) and her Merry Gentry fairy princess series. If you want to see how bad, go look at LKH_lashouts - they tend to shred her books & blog posts w/ glee. *g*

Bother! Bother! Boottthhheeerrr!

Was so fun to have you and the kids down to visit! Even better, we'll get to see you again in two short weeks! :-)

It was so awesome watching Atlantis in NY in November because of the not having to wait. YAY! Actually, we watched it twice (missed the first 10 mins of it, late flight :S) and since it was Tabula Rasa, those 10 minutes meant LOTS. Lol. I think we spent more time talking trying to figure out what was going on than watching. Waiting for it to become available here the next week was kinda tough. At least we aren't waiting around for it to air in syndication here. SPACE is on what, season 2 of Atlantis still? At this rate we'd probably still be waiting a decade from now :P.

I take S4 as it comes. Try not to judge too much, but I'll be the first to admit a few things have ticked me off, but I feel I overreacted to things a bit too much. Am over that now, and just enjoying it for how it is. Although I do find this season hasn't been chock full of as many quotable quotes (I like to use them for my msn, call me a nut :P), or maybe I'm just becoming picky. LOL.
