MESSAGES FROM THE PAST  
OMFG, you guys. In cleaning out my computer (so I can partition it, install Windows, and get Star Trek Online), I stumbled across an archive of saved chats.

With aj.

From 2004.

From July of 2004.

Right after the pilot of Atlantis, for instance:

aj2245: And you are so right. John and Weir wanna do it.
mylittleredgirl: YES!
aj2245: Yes!
aj2245: Aww... Jack 4.0 is growing on me.
mylittleredgirl: I challenge myself to write a John/Weir fic this weekend
aj2245: YAY!
mylittleredgirl: and to write Jack/Weir porn. Except that might not happen.
mylittleredgirl: because I'm not all that great at porn.
mylittleredgirl: but, hence, the challenge part of it ˇ¸
aj2245: I can just see John and Weir sitting on a couch drinking coffee and bitching about their day to come before they go and be busy little monkies.


And so it began.

And I was convinced it should be called John/Weir because I liked the symmetry of four-letter names. :) I stuck with this for at least a week or two, as I recall.

WE ARE SO GREAT OMG. There's pants!verse and everything!!! Holy crap, I almost deleted the folder, too. *CLINGS* We'll have to review it for lols.
A.j.: atlantisotpaj on January 16th, 2010 03:47 am (UTC)
Considering I lost all our conversations because the computer I was using needed me to point a floor fan at it so that it wouldn't overheat... YUS. And, oh, god. That's just chuck full of blackmail material, isn't it? HELLO, 24-year-old ME!
Little Red: sga - pwnd! - A.j.mylittleredgirl on January 16th, 2010 06:17 am (UTC)
Oh my gosh. I know. Blackmaaaaaiiiiiiil!

*cracks up*

<3 <3 <3

I love you guys so hard. Like, I was sort of insanely jealous of your Long-drawn-out-plans for the Future of Atlantis (am odd like that). BUT LOOKING BACK. omg. You drove us all (or at least me) to write so much ridiculous and delicious fic.

Damn. <3 <3
Little Red: sga - sparky revolution - lyssiemylittleredgirl on January 16th, 2010 06:18 am (UTC)
Haha, awww. There was such delicious ridiculousness!! I can understand why you'd be a bit annoyed about our long drawn-out plans... I got all stressed out by fandom when all the alternaverses started multipying and I was like "OH GOD, I CAN'T KEEP UP." I felt v. left behind!

And thus was born an era.

Meanwhile my friends were declaring that McKay/Beckett would CLEARLY be the dominant slash pairing. *eyeroll*

HAHAH. I was a member of the yahoo group, not that it ever went anywhere. =D
A.j.: atlantisaj on January 16th, 2010 05:01 am (UTC)
I WROTE SUBTEXT FOR THEM.

I still think Carson would have drowned Rodney without that pesky Hippocratic oath thing.
miera_cmiera_c on January 16th, 2010 03:54 pm (UTC)
Ha. I wrote actual fic for them. Once. Though by then I think it was more to irritate the McSheppers.
Little Red: sga - canada - elly427mylittleredgirl on January 16th, 2010 06:19 am (UTC)
I was all over that! LOL. It was totally the dominant anything pairing for months.
miera_cmiera_c on January 16th, 2010 03:55 pm (UTC)
And people (erm, not us, obviously) were going "ooh John so has the hots for Teyla!!!"

Ah youth.
Little Red: sga - teyla girls only think - lizmylittleredgirl on January 16th, 2010 07:12 pm (UTC)
Well, in all fairness, he really might have, because, hot alien chick! But a) MYSTERIOUS ELIZABETH ATTRACTIONNN and b) Teyla beats him up too much. :)
Leyenn: star trekleyenn on January 16th, 2010 10:40 am (UTC)
STAR TREK ONLINE OMMFG YES.

*is currently downloading the beta client. FASTER DAMN YOU*

I have a really hard time navigating in space! But my little redheaded Trill tactical officer makes me HAPPYYYYY. :)
Trialiatrialia on January 16th, 2010 12:28 pm (UTC)
*giggles* I looked in my email, and the oldest thing I have from you is a review for Unwarranted Addiction, my first proper SGA fic :D dated early October 2005:

Mmmmm. I've got to admit, desperate!Shep in this way is totally a kink of mine, dreams and all. And you WROTE it! YAY!!!

... it's too short, omg! Need more! *senseless complaining*

*goes off to read it again instead*
Little Red: sga - sw want - magnavox_23mylittleredgirl on January 16th, 2010 07:13 pm (UTC)
HAHA. Desperate!Shep! I still love that. :)
Andy: yellow_loveankareeda on January 16th, 2010 01:39 pm (UTC)
Hahahhaa, that's epic. *giggles* I joined the madness in February 2005 and since then my heart belongs John and Elizabeth. ♥
Little Red: sga - sw kiss me - goldie_galmylittleredgirl on January 16th, 2010 07:14 pm (UTC)
They sort of OWN US, don't they!?!??

Oy, was I ever late to the party! January, 2009.... ooooopsies.

*fail*

But at least there's already lots of shiny fic to read. *g*
Little Red: sga - sparky revolution - lyssiemylittleredgirl on January 16th, 2010 07:15 pm (UTC)
That's so FUN though!!! :-D I was so happy to get into Sparky on the ground floor, since I was soooo late to the Sam/Jack party, because it can be daunting to worm your way into an established fandom. But you are SO AWESOME that it helps, hehe! :)
redbeardredbeard on January 16th, 2010 05:21 pm (UTC)
Oh! I want a full review of STO! It sounds fun (and I haven't gotten into a computer game in quite some time....)
Little Red: trek - sistine trek - lemonrocketmylittleredgirl on January 16th, 2010 07:19 pm (UTC)
OMFG STAR TREK ONLINE IN SPACE OMG.

My main complaints are:

1) not enough facial customization for your person if you're doing an established race (like Trill, Bajoran, etc), because there's only one basic nose and mouth.

2) too much space, not enough away team! I might come to like the space battles more when I get better at piloting my ship, though. I'm spending a lot of time limping along at thruster power going "TURN FASTER DAMN YOU, FASTER!"

My main extreme glee:

1) I AM AN ENSIGN IN STARFLEET. THE STARFLEET. I AM A TRILL. IT IS REALLY QUITE DELIGHTFUL.

My main question:

1) If I write fanfic about my Star Trek Online character, is that kind of like writing WOW fanfic? Because I'm not okay with that!
Leyenn: star trek rebootedleyenn on January 16th, 2010 09:57 pm (UTC)
You are allowed to write fanfic about your Star Trek Online character, because that means I can write it about mine. And we can blame each other. That is okay, yes/yes?
Little Red: trek - trill spots - lovetruthbellamylittleredgirl on January 16th, 2010 10:01 pm (UTC)
Her name is Lena Tanis and she is a Trill tactical officer and SUPER ADORABLE and mean with a compression phaser rifle! And I kind of want to preorder the deluxe edition so I can be a JOINED TRILL and even though I really disliked playing the space portions of the game I want a lifetime subscription BECAUSE THEY OFFER IT and I should really calm down now.

Das Boy points out that I will die a lot in this game, because I'm used to playing a melee character in WoW, and so shooting things from a distance isn't really my forte. I tend to jump into the middle of things and start attacking. ;)
