randomness is an important part of this complete breakfast  
1. Gas is 2.44!? Since YESTERDAY!? I... but... the Fourth of July is over! I suppose my car will now be my symbol of independence sitting in my driveway.

2. Eeee! Trashy romance novel! My parents, in what may or may not have been a fit of mocking the formulaicness of the romance novel genre, helped me create the last remaining main character! EEE! Mwah ha ha. A few things are still missing, but as this was day 1 of working on this project (and day 1 of the whole month set aside for plotting and research and things), I feel ahead of the game.

3. I wrote a Sheppard/Teyla drabble, because that pairing was creeping into all my other fanfics. In writing it, it occurred to me that there probably really is no real fanbase for dysfunctional Shep/Teyla. I think I'd be much more inclined to write that pairing if that was the way the fandom was -- there's so much potential for it. That, and my soul is owned by Sheppard/Weir.

4. I am reintroducing this aj icon for SEASON TWO. Y'all remember the first few weeks of Sparky when we were all "Imaginary SEASON TWO!" wherein Sheppard and Weir (for they were both much less serious then) would have lots of casual sex and be bestfriendsforever? Good times. So:

is this icon...

funnier now?

omgwtf! I feel spoiled!
1(2.9%)
I don't get it.

excuse me, I must now spread an internet rumor that there will be sex in season two.
7(20.6%)
omg! a poll!!1!
3(8.8%)

say something in the text-y box! anything!


edit: the problem with a text-y box is that I cannot comment-spam you in return!

5. Someone tell me whether I should watch the behind-the-scenes thingger that I'm taping right now, please? (As in, is it worth the spoilers to see it rightnowrightnow or should I wait?)

I think you should watch the behind the scenes thing. Especially one certain thing about 45-50 minutes in. Yeah. Also, Weir? So damn gorgeous and funny. And Sheppard? Hot and funny.

aiiieeee!

but I am unspoiled! Will all my spoiler-free-ness go for naught and I'll enjoy the first few episodes less? Or will I be extra-super-psyched?

No, there's not really a fan base for dysfunctional Shep/Teyla. However, there is a fan base for multiple-birth pregnancies Shep/Teyla.

HAHAHAHA.

Er. *ahem* But really, I'd buy multiple-births being more frequent in Pegasus, since they are lower down on the food chain.
Wolfegreywords on July 12th, 2005 03:08 am (UTC)
I never thought I'd say it, but I think I need to watch *more* TV. I mean, I'm really looking forward to watching all of Firefly when SciFi airs it starting in a week or two and I see the occasional CSI and Daily Show.

Soooo.... what show are we talking about?
Little Red: sga - sw season two! - A.j.mylittleredgirl on July 12th, 2005 03:11 am (UTC)
Stargate: Atlantis!

It was my CRACK of last year, and promises to be similarly addictive yet again. 'Tis very campy fun space-adventure thinggy, with man-eating aliens.

Love the icon love the icon love love love the icon...
Little Redmylittleredgirl on July 12th, 2005 03:30 am (UTC)
It was SO FUNNY after the pilot episode. It is still funny. Icon RULEZ.
qwirky on July 12th, 2005 03:33 am (UTC)
They did kinda go from being cute and playful and such where everything was happy lala and cute to OMFG SUPER ANGST. *thinks* But... I dunno. *likes both, except not SUPER ANGST, just enough angst that ends in sex or something*

*loves icon regardless*
Little Red: sga - sw season two! - A.j.mylittleredgirl on July 12th, 2005 03:45 am (UTC)
Yes. I feel that transition was rather abrupt. If, you know, necessary, cuz it makes much more sense that way... but eee, "Hide and Seek" was so adorable and totally set the stage for *my* Sparky!verse. :)
if i could, i'd punch you into paralysis!: Lizzie's thinking (alina_kalime)grenadine on July 12th, 2005 04:02 am (UTC)
I adore that icon.

Re: angsty Sparky, early on I imagined that would happen as they started getting almost-killed with regular frequency, as that does tend to up the angst. And, well in my opinion, angst is also hot. (watched the Storm and the Eye today, whee angsty goodness!) But I hope they don't overdo it next season.
Little Red: sga - sw not subtle - thefakeheadlinemylittleredgirl on July 12th, 2005 02:08 pm (UTC)
Still, almost-getting-killed is rather fluffy on the angst scale. It's more the "OMG WE ARE ALL GOING TO DIEEEEE" and fighting over that that made it so angsty all of a sudden. And, er, they're both far more serious (and introverted) characters than it appeared in "Rising" and "Hide and Seek".

Angst is so very hot, I agree. It's a different kind of hot, though. Sadly, for me, it's one that requires more work and actual thought to write. It does make for MUCH better television, though! (Although I could so do with more "Hide and Seek"-y episodes of random squeee)

Allie O'N: ShepTeyla byAllialliesings on July 12th, 2005 09:44 am (UTC)
After reading the drabble and some of the comments, I think I kind of see another difference between the Shep/Teyla fans and the Shep/Weir fans. The Shep of S/W is darker. The Shep of S/T is more compassionate. So, that's why dysfuntional Shep/Teyla reaches the S/W audience. It basically reinforces the idea that he should have been with Liz in the first place.
Little Red: sga - shepwhore kirk - lizmylittleredgirl on July 12th, 2005 02:05 pm (UTC)
Eep! Sorry, I didn't mention that the drabble wasn't Allie-safe with teh sex and teh evilness, but I figured from the rest of the paragraph it would be apparent. *snuggles* Hope you are not scarred.

As far as reading the comments... er... those really are all Shep/Weir fans, so it makes sense that those would be a bit alienating. And I don't really think that Shep/Teyla for S/W fans implies that Shep should have been with Liz in the first place (although, if it does, that's my failing as a writer, so sorreeee).

I guess... I can see the soulmate thing with Shep/Teyla far more than I can with Shep/Weir, because it would make much more sense in the storyline. A lot of things about the pairing appeal to me. It just feels like they are more star-crossed loves than wheee-joy! loves, but... huh. I can definitely see how it *wouldn't* be taken that way, it's just the way I prefer to look at it. Teyla has been put into a pretty bad position, and she doesn't have a lot to cling to except Sheppard. And... I'm not sure Sheppard is really mature enough yet to be that rock for her, since in many ways, he's kind of flailing around in the dark still.

But you're right -- I totally see Shep as darker (although he is a pale, pale grey next to Jack, omg, no matter what Shep might think of himself). So I suppose we all end up with the pairing we deserve!

that drabble is the most comments I've seen in that comm in Ages. I had to look twice when it said Shep/Teyla and your name. but angsty dysfunctional Shep/Teyla is okay. especially when written by a talent such as yourself.
