geekiness ahoy!  
*falls at the feet of Google and weeps with joy*

I am not the only one in this history of the universe to ship Talia/Garibaldi! There even exists a fanfic!!! I AM NOT ALONE!!!11!

And lyssie made me an icon!

Talia/Garibaldi is my ridiculous, ridiculous Babylon 5 OTP. I seriously don't understand why I'm so alone on this, because it's SO OBVIOUS AND GREAT. I swoon whenever I see them on-screen together and have done since I was thirteen. My mother does, too, which means the insanity is genetic.

I am resisting the desire to drive up to Best Buy immediately and buy Season 2 of B5, because my parents bought me something for my birthday off the internet and I've been given strict instructions to Not Buy Anything, just in case.

It's burning a delightful hole in my mind, as this pairing does every year or so. I will now watch Season 1 and drag out my old TERRIBLE fanfic from when I was thirteen and first obsessed, and somehow resist the urge to rewrite my awful B5 novel again. (It went through at least three embarrassing incarnations when I was in high school, at times including both a Mary Sue and the lyrics to an *nsync song. I'm still not nearly ashamed enough of it.)

*flails with overwhelming 'shippy joy*

ETA: ... so, I just opened my B5 fanfic folder. It appears I wrote a Sheridan/Weir fic. I don't remember this at all. Did I post this? Did one of you challenge me to do this? No, seriously, WHAT?

*always kinda shipped Garabaldi/Ivanova, actually*
Little Red: b5 - talia garibaldi uncertain - lyssiemylittleredgirl on June 25th, 2005 05:47 pm (UTC)
I can see that. But mostly in the Garibaldi/Talia/Ivanova OT3 sense. I really like their friendship, and if I recall correctly, it got written a lot into my fics when I was wee and sex wasn't the only goal of fanfic. ;)

*digs around more in folder* Toy box of bad fanfic!

I seriously don't understand why I'm so alone on this, because it's SO OBVIOUS AND GREAT.

Alone? But... Doesn't everyone 'ship G/T? I -- You're blowing my world view here. I thought Garibaldi/Talia was like a law of physics.

(One of my first fics was a terrible, sappy thing about how Garibaldi broke her out of the PsyCorps and helped her break throught the created personality. And then they had bebiez!Telepathic bebiez!)
Little Red: b5 - talia garibaldi uncertain - lyssiemylittleredgirl on June 25th, 2005 05:53 pm (UTC)
EEEEEE!!! YES! LAW OF PHYSICS OMG!!

You are so my new best friend. *CLINGS* Aiiiieeeeee. I am freaking out with the joy of not being alone!

TELEPATHIC BEBIEZ!!! I had a whole saga going, omg. Lyta was actually responsible for the breaking out and the de-fragging of Talia's brain, if I recall correctly, but Garibaldi got to stomp around and be ANGSTY AND IN LOVE and save her from evil in the future and stuff. I didn't get to the telepathic bebiez yet, but OMG, they were so totally coming in SEEKWELS.

Yay, hard drive archaeology! There should be a holiday for that.
Little Red: b5 - talia garibaldi uncertain - lyssiemylittleredgirl on June 25th, 2005 05:54 pm (UTC)
YES!!! This is so fun! I'm totally going to have to do a fic dump of the pieces that are actually fairly recent and just... weren't posted because the pairing makes no sense, for example.

I admit that Michael is cute and I would probably ship them, but for my overriding love for Susan/Talia in all things, which pretty much broke my shipping virginity and therefore cannot ever be overthrown.

I always have the Michael!crush in my S/T stories though. Because he is so cute when he's mooning over Talia. *grin*
Leyenn: susan.talia - coffee loversleyenn on June 25th, 2005 06:09 pm (UTC)
but I could probably stand to write you a Susan/Talia/Michael ficlet for Christmas if you wanted...

well, I can sort of see it... *g* And actually, I was just flipping through the book I have of Thirdspace and I came across a couple of pars about this relationship, so I guess it was there and I just don't remember!

I was always the 'hopeless' shipper when it came to this show. Susan/Marcus and Zach/Lyta were mine.
Jessi: House - boredj_guda on June 25th, 2005 05:58 pm (UTC)
Zach/Lyta!!!!

OMG. I loved them SO MUCH! I used to throw things at the screen during season five when creepy stupid hair guy (Byron? Jeeze he had a stupid name too) came on the screen.

I honestly think that the only reason I've never seen B5 is 'cause one of the characters has my name and my name isn't that common and thus, I am vaguely freaked out.
Little Red: b5 - all alone in the night - thatfangirmylittleredgirl on June 25th, 2005 06:01 pm (UTC)
It's entirely possible that one of the reasons I LOVE YOU SO is because you share a name with my favorite character ever, omg. And because if we become, liek, really good friends I can name my kid after you and not be suspected of fandom geekiness. Except I'm just kidding about pretty much everything I just said.

It's also possible that I just love *her* because her name is so often. It really has been one of my favorite names since I was a little kid -- before B5 -- and therefore I am jealous of you. :)

Little Red: b5 - talia garibaldi uncertain - lyssiemylittleredgirl on June 25th, 2005 06:50 pm (UTC)
Definitely!! Especially B5. Although... you'd be hard-pressed to watch the show in a way, say, that un-OTPs John and Delenn. But I'm sure that some have tried.

I can't even tell you how happy this is making me.

*wants FIC, omg!*

*supposes I will have to write it, then*

Perhaps I'll request fic challenge for the pairing or something. Hrm. Or... I could go out tonight, like I'm supposed to. That too. *whistles*

Ack. Now I must go to Colorado so my B5-addict-friend can show me who Talia is. (And no, describing probably won't help me since I didn't watch the show much. But I'll probably recognize stuff by osmosis since I would be present - but playing on my PowerBook - during some B5-marathon weekends.)
Little Red: b5 - talia garibaldi uncertain - lyssiemylittleredgirl on June 29th, 2005 04:29 am (UTC)
Yes! You must! :) *giggles* I remember your B5 weekends...

My B5 love seems to resurface every few years. Now I'm addicted again for the next few weeks. *fiends*

I totally want to lock myself in a room for the next week and write Talia/Garibaldi fic. Except the plot bunnies are just swimming around and failing to bite! What the heck!?

Mwah ha ha. I love that we have a list of recruits now for a show that aired ten years ago.
