UNDER THE WIRE, BABY  

Banner by skybound2

I signed up last-minute. HOW COULD I NOT??

Now, um, tell me what you'd like to see, plz.

(I'm thinking most likely Atlantis, amirite? But I have strong crackfic desires to write Talia Winters saving herself and Garibaldi from the Psi Corps, because, idk, that's pretty ridiculous. I'm also taking Trek prompts!)

I sort of feel with Girl Saves Boy that it should be, like, unexpected Girl Saves Boy, not like Sam or Ivanova or Zoe who can so obviously kick more ass than anyone else. What do you think? But if I do pick a non-traditionally-kickass character, should I have them use their established strengths (like, Beverly Crusher cures mysterious alien disease! or Diane reprograms Jake's nanites just in time!) or make them kick ass out of their element? IMPORTANT QUESTIONS!

No, really, please discuss and/or prompt me before I feel like I've made a horrible mistake in Pledging To Write Something.

TALIA.

LOVE HER!!!

I might have lost my DVD with "Soul Mates" on it. I COULD DIE.

OUT OF THEIR ELEMENT! That's so much more fun. :D Like Liz Weir going all Die Hard like Shep did that one time. Or Sam having to diplomat her way out of a situation when she'd really rather kick some ass. Something like that.
Little Red: sga - sw look - veronica_amylittleredgirl on September 17th, 2010 07:15 pm (UTC)
Bwahahaha. Elizabeth would not be good at Die Hard. Though I'd kind of love her to be like "OH FUCK THIS" and save HERSELF from the replicators and THEN show up and save the city from disaster and then be all "GIVE ME MY OFFICE BACK" and Shep's like OMGILU and she's like "Yeah, yeah, you owe me coffee for the rest of my LIFE."

Weir saves Sheppard (with a gun!) would be infinitely awesome.

As would mini!Sam saving mini!Jack.

Or Torri saving Joe. ;)

OMG. MINIS!!!! That's such an amazingly fabulous idea. I love my minis!!! :) I'm kind of in love with this idea now.

(Hehe, Torri/Joe FTW in an epic way. She so covers when he forgets his lines. AND OTHER THINGS WHICH SHOULD INVOLVE SEX.)

I would personally not want to see Elizabeth Weir toting a gun because that would be OOC to my view of the character. Having her have to strategize might be interesting - trying to escape and whoever she's with can't help her (John, or possibly Ronon. I'm still bitter we never got much Elizabeth & Ronon interaction. Them trapped offworld in a dangerous situation and having to work together was one of the many wasted opportunities of SGA for me).
Little Red: sga - sw happiness - jeepnymylittleredgirl on September 17th, 2010 06:59 pm (UTC)
I accept your challenge of GUN TOTING IN CHARACTER. ;) Or... something.

I think Elizabeth and Ronon could divide and conquer quite effectively because their skills don't overlap at all, and they both know it and are totally fine with that. You know? In the right situation, where asskicking and smarttalking are both required... UNSTOPPABLE. Meanwhile, John and Teyla and McKay back at the ranch are like CRAP WE MUST SAVE THEM, but Ronon and Elizabeth are like "Oh, you came to rescue us? Feel free to take 5. We've totally got this one."

I approve of this!

MORE LR FIC = BETTER WORLD. TRUE STORY.
Little Red: peanuts - dark and stormy nightmylittleredgirl on September 17th, 2010 07:09 pm (UTC)
:-D I WOULD AGREE IF THIS FIC WOULD WRITE ITSELF NAO! I can't decide! So many options!
Icepixie: [B5] Ivanova the Terribleicepixie on September 2nd, 2010 02:56 am (UTC)
That is such an awesome idea for a ficathon.

I kind of like the idea of having someone traditionally seen as kickass save the day while being out of their element. Like Susan saving someone through, I dunno, knitting. Okay, maybe not that out of her element. But YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN.

Though someone we don't usually think of as kickass being kickass is also very attractive! Especially if it's Lizzie. :D
Little Red: b5 - ivanova oven - crazybeemylittleredgirl on September 17th, 2010 07:01 pm (UTC)
BWAHAHAHAHA.

She should really have to seduce someone. Or did that happen? It doesn't even have to be sexual seduction, if that makes sense -- she could just have to suck up a lot to a foreign ruler when she'd rather punch him in the face.

I have no idea what I am gonna do c.c;;
Little Red: b5 - ivanova oven - crazybeemylittleredgirl on September 17th, 2010 07:02 pm (UTC)
I STILL HAVE NO IDEA. I NEED TO WRITE THIS TODAY AND HAVE NO CLUE.

Maybe... 5 times Lizzie Saves John or something so none of them individually have to be all that stellar? But I suck at 5 Things! I can only ever do 4 things, because I can never come up with The One That Brings It All Home At The End. (Unless you kinda cheat and go "and though the rest of these wasn't leading up to this, NOW THEY HAVE A BABY AND THERE'S SOMETHING CUTE THAT SORT OF RELATES TO THE THEME.)

I have no help, but please to be including Elizabeth in this fic. Else I might cry.

*points to teary eyes*

Truestory.

I almost like the idea of using Chloe to save the universe.

Y'know...wee little Chloe who's totally crushing on Jay Felger...god only knows why?

Am I the only person who remembers Chloe?
Little Red: trek - ani hailing - rightoniconsmylittleredgirl on September 17th, 2010 07:04 pm (UTC)
But she's so unbearably twee!

And yet, that would be awesome.

If only General Jack's Secretary was a chick instead of Walter (aj and I once created a mother-hen type of secretary for him named Martha, lol). I'd love somebody's secretary to save the world. All, "Yeah, well, the aliens took over the SGC, but they didn't bother with the administrative staff, SO WE SAVED THE WORLD."

Dude, i would so read any of these suggestions. Talia! Miss her so damn much and Susan too. As for Elizabeth, i think it would be really cool to see her save John and Atlantis with her mad diplomatic skillz and John would be all woah and have new respect for her and see her in a different light because hello, he's military and more often than not is solving problems with gunfu and explosions and teh hair. If she picked up a gun, it would be the whole "psyche!" bluff where she would maybe give someone the wrong idea then not so much.

If that doesn't work, how about Miko Kusanagi saving the day? That would be excellent too. The trouble with this ficathon is that you have so many different options. But what a great problem to have!
Little Red: sga - lizzie temptress - goldie_galmylittleredgirl on September 17th, 2010 07:05 pm (UTC)
YES. THE GUN-PSYCHE. That pretty much has to happen. This fic is going to be epic crack, I say. EPIC!

HAHA. YES. They have some kind of sparring competish and John and Lizzie are on the same team and she takes someone out with a leg-sweep or something and John is like "UNEXPECTED KUNG FU IS UNEXPECTED!?" and she is all "I'LL NEVER TELL!" and then slips Teyla a cookie.

Re: Diane saves Jake, OMG
PUDDING! Ahahaha. AMAZING. Except she would totally save him by twerking his nanites so he's forced to come to the lab, and he's like "YOU MADE MY EARS RING DAMMIT" and she's like "Lalala, they were soooo going to ask you for that report you didn't do."
