eruthros: Delenn from Babylon 5 with a startled expression and the text "omg!" (Default)
So yesterday I got together with [livejournal.com profile] thingswithwings and watched all six episodes of SGA that I missed, what with being in the Middle of Nowhere. (It was ... kinda a slog, you guys, six episodes in a row. Especially since we got the vividcon vids in the middle of the day, thus necessitating some vid watching as well.)

So here is something I have observed about Woolsey. And John. Behind this cut here )

Next in line: six episodes of Doctor Who. I'll get there! And then I can watch "Handlebars" and other Vividcon vids! It'll be awesome.

Fusion!

Best John/Rodney fusion EVER (today): PC/MAC. With John as Mac and Rodney as PC. NO REALLY. THINK ABOUT IT.

Imagine if, instead of having to fight himself at the end of Doppelganger, John had had to talk about his FEEEEEEELINGS with himself.

When [livejournal.com profile] thingswithwings and I were watching a recent Smallville vid, that I billed to her as "awesome but kind of weird because I don't recognize half the clips in it," I pointed to a scene where Lex and Clark were on either side of a stained glass door panel. "Look! Separated by stained glass!" "Ah-ha," said [livejournal.com profile] thingswithwings, "on Smallville, slash is what happens when you take away the stained glass."* Then we agreed that this was a perfect description of the way the show works: just plain glass isn't enough. Then you can see what's on the other side!

(See, we're collecting Separated By Glass moments. These include, among others, the fabulous ice-wall in X2, and various people in hazmat suits, and things like that, but I also want to include Daniel in "Meridian." Because I think that Daniel/Death is really the SG1 OTP.** Daniel is separated from his death by glass! Daniel breaks through the glass trying to reach his desires! Daniel gazes longingly at ascension! He and ascension totally pass the broccoli test!)

Speaking of people who pass the broccoli test, we also watched a Once a Thief vid ("When I'm Up," by Lynn, Jill, and Kay, available here and determined that Vic and Mac have demonstrated on multiple occasions that they pass the broccoli test, but only when the broccoli is a gun. Or possibly a large knife, or a chainsaw.

Also, that vid made us want to go back and watch Once a Thief again, because seriously: trampoline fights. Chainsaw fencing. Stuck-on-top-of-a-just-married-car. Fighting with clowns. Moonwalking! Pop-up windows like we're in a VH1 music video! Two different endings to the series! Why Once a Thief is not in multi vids all the time for the hilarious visuals I don't know.

ALSO also, we were discussing what urban legends in Pegasus must be like. "Then he was passing by the gate, and three stones came through: tap, tap, tap" etc. And I said, okay, but the problem with an urban legends challenge is that there'll be a lot of stuff that's basically a direct translation of an urban legend into Pegasus. "Like," I said, "there's a serial killer in the backseat of the puddlejumper!" *pause* "It was John."

***
* This is also true of John Sheppard. For example, the stained glass door to the gym closing on John in "Hot Zone" -- Atlantis and the Ancients say "no, John, you can't have that, and you can't even see it." Just saying.

** Also, John/pain is totally the SGA OTP. And unlike other OTPs? This one is acknowledged by the camera and the writing all the time! (See [livejournal.com profile] thingswithwings's proof in her vid here.)

Excerpt:

[livejournal.com profile] thingswithwings: I sort of want to make a ____ or die challenge, where ____ has to rhyme with fuck
[livejournal.com profile] thingswithwings: so there could be duck or die
[livejournal.com profile] thingswithwings: luck or die

/ excerpt

In which eruthros and thingswithwings have an important conversation about ____-or-die )

Your turn! Pintuck or die, the story where Rodney and John must participate in strange Pegasus versions of Project Runway? You know there are a bazillion more out there!

In which we discuss:
1) how Peter DeLuise learned his scifi politics playing a genetically-engineered janitor on Seaquest. (Peter DeLuise directed, produced, and wrote various bits of Stargate SG-1 and SGA between 1999 and the end of season ten of SG-1.)
2) why some situations call for a B-Movie version of Lee Edelman.
3) the disconcerting correlations between characters who don't use contractions.

This is cleaned-up IM-discussion, meaning that it's full of playing with these topics rather than really fleshing them out.

Dagwood! Stargate Atlantis! Genetic engineering! And other topics as well. )

So when [livejournal.com profile] thingswithwings and I get together, we do cracktastic combined fannishness. (Some of you are probably familiar with the particular kind of cracktastic that happens on this sofa. Especially when it's Stargate-related.)

Yesterday, we had a spot of trouble opening a jar of honey and began to tell each other the kinds of jokes we imagined Atlanteans telling. And unlike our normal practice, we actually wrote them down and could remember them later! [livejournal.com profile] thingswithwings has posted them here: A priest, a rabbi, and an ATA user walk into a bar....

So! That is where you should go if you want to know what happens when SGA-1 walks into a bar. Or what happens when an anthropologist, a botanist, and Rodney McKay are offworld together.

So, it's time for a round of assertions. These are the rules that I've just made up, and I'm backing them up with a gun that I ... borrowed from the national rifle association.

1. Form an assertion founded on "if." ("If X were a Y, it would be Z." "If X went to school, it would do Q.")
2. Back it up with some evidence. From youtube. You know. "Evidence."
3. Pass the buck.
4. Comment on other assertions.

Ready? Okay.

If John Sheppard were a lead singer, he'd totally be David Byrne running laps around the stage during the guitar breaks.



Look! See? There he is jumping up and down and doing awkward arm gestures and, not incidentally, singing "Life During Wartime."

I've proved my point. Your turn!

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.
