a question for the floor:  
You who know things and read Gateworld and official bios and stuff: is there any canon running around out there about where Elizabeth Weir did her undergraduate and/or graduate education?

If not, I'm totally still making her go to Brown, so there. Except she's allowed to not get mono and actually graduate, of course.

AFAIA, the only real canon about education and Elizabeth is that she taught Poli Sci at Georgetown.

Excellent! I'm pretty sure that Brown has been made fanon by more than just me, so I can use that in a throwaway line. (I recall reading a fic somewhere where Shep goes back in time and visits a freshman Lizzie there, and there was more bigbrotherly encouragement and no porn. And, hey, it's a good place for spawning some raving against the military.)

I remember that fic, too. I remember liking it. If only I could find it again. Oh well! I'm working on validating the new layout for my domain, and am going to the college library tomorrow to write my McWeir ficathon piece without distractions. Good luck with the fic!

It is! Thank you. :)

If it is not canon that Lizzie went to Brown (it should be!), it is most definitely fanon, for I remember reading fic where she mentions being there.

*nodnod* I think I mentioned it in one of mine, and there was a fic (link posted in a comment above me somewhere) where there were flashbacks and she was actually at Brown, and it does actually make sense. I also think she would have enjoyed it more than I did.

Nope. As far as I know, the only real canon on her education is that she went to college and graduated a few times. ;) I tend to think she was a history or poli sci major as an undergrad, then went to law school, then went to the Maxwell School of Diplomacy (at Syracuse) for her doctorate, but there's no canon on this.

That does all sound very reasonable, I agree! :) *breaks into hives at the thought of that much school* She totally did cute little internships in the summers, too.

which would mean she went to one of the few places that gets *more* snow than Michigan. Yikes.

Dude. Does this mean we are getting fic from you? *falls on knees and begs God to please make it so*

Hee! I'm trying to write some ficlets that were requested recently, but I promise, it's not worth any falling-on-knees! I'm trying to dust off my muse a bit, but she's been sent into hiding with all the Real Grown-Up Work and all.

I shall be happy with anything that you post. It's been too long!

*waits patiently for fic to appear*

Hee, yes. Let's not give Elizabeth mono. That would be mean.
