No. Internet. Might. Die.  

I mean, except on my phone. I thought my perception of load time was just warped by a temporal anomaly since it was happening on all of my home devices, but apparently it's my modem.

I'm re-watching "The Fifth Race" (on DVD, how analog!) and it's kind of crazy watching it with Atlantis-era canon knowledge. Aside from my desire to yell "because he has the geeeeene!" at the screen... What the heck were the Ancients doing having base 8 math?

(I'm watching this for nefarious purposes. I'm considering sticking an AU Sheppard in an ancient library head-grabber thing. I finished 15k of Vegas-episode fic where there's no real plot except sex and breakfast - it's at beta! - and I miss my alternawoobies already. So I'm pondering torturing them with rehashed SG1 devices. Like you do!)

Daniel's dancing hieroglyph screensaver is always lolarious, even in 2012! (Not sure why my iPhone keeps correcting his name to Daniela, either. The secret fandom-crack life of my iPhone, I tell you.)

Also, did the Ancients evolve on Earth or were they just chillaxing there a few million years ago, then leaving, then coming back...? No nefarious purposes, just curious.

Oh dear, sympathies on the Internet suckage!!

I feel that I have missed something important by not having seen enough Stargate to remember Daniel's hieroglyph screensaver. Hee! <3

There's a solution to this, you know!

's true. I do have much better access to TV-show DVD-type things than I did years ago...

Huh, maybe that's why the sga writers did that. It's just so tempting! However, they're being paid, so I guess we can expect more. If a fic writer had brought replicators to Pegasus we'd probably have thought it was awesome so long as there was sex.

I do wonder whether the plan in "Fifth Race" was to make the Ancients advanced humans. I kinda doubt it. Base 8 math! ;)

Yes!! Except it's Vegas-verse so Rodney's in a nice suit while he says it and Teyla probably still has a planet because John wasn't there to wreck it for her but YES, in our verse, why no head grabbers? Maybe the Ancients got over that tech by the time they went back to Pegasus and upgraded to digital?

Man I love Stargate.

*grabby hands*

It's just, give me a broken Sheppard and I can't help but want to poke him with a stick.

I did give him sex and breakfast first, though! It's totally fair.

Of course, in my head, Vegas-verse John lost his Elizabeth and got kicked out of the military because he went to try and save her against orders. So... yeah.

Well, that is probably the obvious conclusion. I just kinda... can't... with an unhappy ending. Bittersweet is about as dark as I go, and that's only on special occasions. I'm weak! I need to be padded before shipping in floofy love things or I will break!

yeah, that's pretty much why I love you. A friend of mine was asking for 'happy fic from any fandom' when she had a sucky day earlier this week and I sent her a bunch of yours. :)

Eee! :) This pleases me greatly. I'm a charter member of the Society for the Proliferation and Defense of Fluff. (I totally forgot that became a thing, actually. I just googled it to see if I could find daisycm83's original graphic and realized there was a community and I think Daisy even held fic awards and, huh. So apparently, I'm a charter member who has shirked her responsibilities for years!)

Confession time: I have a very few stories that did not end happily, and periodically they pop into my head and make me feel really guilty. How could I leave my characters like that! Even if it was random crossover crack-fic! Then I start plotting, like, fix-it fic for my fic to make me feel better about the cruel torture I inflicted on fictional people.
