So I was having one of those conversations you have with fannish friends. You know. [livejournal.com profile] thingswithwings was telling me a story idea, and she said, god, what am I even doing, somebody's gonna stage an intervention any day now. And I, of course, pointed out that this was Stargate: Atlantis, and that you probably couldn't get an intervention for anything less than "the story in which Rodney and John sit in the office all day without talking to each other and just do paperwork," and perhaps not even then.

So, guys, what does it take to get an intervention in SGA? How far do you have to go?

Like, imagine your fannish friend who's been with you for the last three fandoms. You even bailed out of the X-Files at the same time! It has been so wonderful and lovely. But now she's gone a little bit off the rails in this wild and crazy SGA fandom.

I think, yes. Because, there had to be one who turned out to work for The Man, right? Whereas the serial killer had long hair and a crazy neck tattoo, which he proceeded to flense off himself in order to convince everyone that he was the Realio Trulio Mulder, who did not himself have any crazy neck tattoos.

Wait, I distinctly remember the serial killer flensing original Mulder so he would be...mistaken for serial killer Mulder? So people would be unable to tell which one was which without restraints and a battery of psychological tests? Did he flense both of them?

Well, it was flense both their necks, or give the Realio Trulio guy a perfectly-matching tattoo. But yes, the idea was that they would be indistinguishable, the cops would kill the wrong guy, and Ebil SK Mulder would go home and do Ebil Things to Scully.

I am led to believe that the whole thing with the Catzilla, the pint of Ben & Jerry's, the superheroic nanny, the latkes, and the later birth of twins sadly does not constitute Ebil; therefore, the plan failed.

Whoa. I think I missed a sequel.

Oh yes! Everything but the twins (and possibly the latkes) happens in Iolokus 4. The twins are the subject of the treacle monster follow-up, that was Holidays spelled backwards.

http://www.geocities.com/mustangsally78/msrtindex.htm Did you read all 5 parts? (#5 is the treacle monster story, published much later.)

#1 involved the magically healing sex with Marita
#2 was the one where the clones were introduced (and something else happens)
#3 is serial killer territory (flensing)
#4 involves spurious lawsuits and Evil Hijinkery, also lots and lots of goopy sex (I say that literally) and the best nanny you could ever want.

It is a thing. (The whole series is spot-the-fic-stereotype, but it becomes really obvious in #4.)
