eruthros: Delenn from Babylon 5 with a startled expression and the text "omg!" (Default)
I have decided that my experience of SGA fandom can be summed up by three vids:

Another Sunday by [livejournal.com profile] jescaflowne This is for unicorns and rainbows and beanie babies and girl scout cookies and ridiculous AUs and also for laughing at ourselves for taking this show and these actors and especially Joe Flanigan seriously.

What is Eternal? by [livejournal.com profile] gnine This is for taking this show and these actors seriously. And ironically. At the same time. Like, I do sincerely believe in Rodney's manpain! And also it's hilarious. I feel like watching this vid is so much like my experience in SGA fandom, because [livejournal.com profile] gnine totally makes me buy it, and does these amazing cuts between current!Atlantis and future!Atlantis, and the bit about "judged on a scale that's been heavily weighted" makes me sniffle every time, and it really makes me believe in the team OT4. But then I kind of love it ironically, too, and can't believe that I'm taking it seriously.

Faggot by Gabby ([livejournal.com profile] sextagteam). And this is for John Sheppard, the guy who is totally wrong for the action-hero lead, for the commander of a military base, for the military at all. And yet there he is, being a big queer weirdo, throwing himself into suicide missions, always aware of the ways in which he doesn't quite fit. ILU John Sheppard, thanks for making a fandom for me! Also, notice how I've come around again to taking Joe Flanigan seriously? I'd better go watch Another Sunday again.

(Actually that reminds me that I have this theory that John Sheppard's character can be summed up by Faggot, [livejournal.com profile] hollywoodgrrl's Evening on the Ground, and [personal profile] thingswithwings's a lieutenant colonel is being beaten -- what's he's reacting to and what he does with it, and what he thinks of himself, and what he wants.)
