A while ago I was wondering if I should watch Stargate again, but, in light of ten seasons, was a bit afraid of the commitment. Since then I have watched 7 seasons of JAG and I'm so not done yet.

Why is that? Why couldn't I watch ten seasons of my favourite show ever, but instead watched seven seasons of a show that I had never watched before?

The answer is simple: I didn't own any JAG dvds when I started. I sort of thought that I could get away with buying and watching season 1, finding it okay but nothing to write home about and then move one. Boy, was I ever wrong. JAG was obviously made for me. I may have found myself rewatching certain scenes over and over again, and yes, most of them featured planes (and maybe a certain commander, but we'll get to
that later).

In fact, JAG was so made for me that I watched those seven seasons in not even four weeks, I've been practically inhaling the DVDs (and amazon.co.uk really really loves me right now).

Anyway, I'm not here to swoon over JAG (and I know you guys don't share my newfound love). What I was going to say was that I fully intend to watch Stargate all over again this year. I'll finish JAG first, but sometime around end of March/beginning of April, I should be ready to start with Stargate. And with my new Eee PC (which hasn't
even arrived yet, let's hope it works), I fully expect to watch and type and post and share my joy.

Anyone want to join me?

For some reason I dreamed about Jack and Daniel today. Nothing
special, just an impression, a memory. I woke up and thought, hey,
Jack and Daniel, haven't thought about them in a long time, wonder
what they are doing, and then I remembered how absolutely obsessed I
was over Stargate for years - YEARS - and how much every little touch
and look between Jack and Daniel would feel me with happiness and
glee.

So, I'm thinking, once I'm done with Cobra, maybe I should rewatch
Stargate? I'm a bit hesitant though, because of the ten seasons.
That'll take me at least half a year, and maybe I should watch all
those DVDs I own that I haven't watched yet before I start watching
Stargate again.

Anyway, just sending out some Jack/Daniel love to those of you who
still feel it.


BTW, does anyone own the Complete Series Collection in that lovely
collector's box with the gate on the top? It's so pretty, and I want
it very much, but reviews on amazon are kind of mixed. Apparently the
quality of the DVDs is really bad, with many scratched ones. Does
anyone own the set and has had trouble with it?
See that big smile on my face? That's right, it's the IncredibleStargateHappiness-Smile!

I have no words for how much I love these characters. I may do a real review when I rewatch it, but for now, I'm just happy.

Also, I could watch Mitchell suffer all day long. At least a large part of the day. No, I don't consider this a spoiler. It wouldn't be Mitchell if there wasn't some suffering involved.

So, anyone have some Cameron h/c recs for me? Gen, slash, het - not unlike him, I'm easy. *g*
oceana: (Default)
( Nov. 4th, 2007 06:49 pm)
Speaking of Cameron (not that we were speaking of Cameron, but as you can tell from the uncharacteristic amount of posts today, I'm procrastinating and unable to concentrate).

Speaking of Cameron, one thing that makes me love him so much is that he has parents. I mean, actual, alive, normal parents (sorry, Sam, but your dad's an alien), parents that we get to see. And they are very parent-ish.

I have a huge this small, but persistant "visiting the parents" kink, especially in Stargate fandom. Especially when it involves Daniel. I've read all the Jack/Daniel visiting the parents fic out there, and trust me, some of it was hard work (I even tried the beagles one, but I just...no. NO.). And now there is Cameron, with his real , live parents.

Rec me Cameron/Daniel + parents fic, please would you? Or Cameron/Daniel + parents. Cameron/anyone + parents would do fine, actually.
Okay, it's official.

I'm not watching Stargate Atlantis anymore.

No spoilers, but opinions on the new season under the cut )

In Stargate, people were in danger and you could see it, because you were right there with them in the action. In SGA, you get the soundtrack instead, or on top of it, saying things like "you are in terrible danger, get out of there now, oh the danger is getting closer" . I mean, we all know nobody important is going to die anyway, so it's rather hard to make me believe that anyone is in danger, but with SGA? Sorry, it's just not working for me. At least in Stargate, you never knew for sure if someone wasn't going to get lost on a planet for a few months, or would, you know, die of radiation poisoning. Well, I guess you can't ever compete with a show that killed off one of its lead characters and then had him come back naked.

People say Rodney and John banter like Jack and Daniel, but they don't. Jack and Daniel would banter in their free time, in briefings, over breakfast, wherever. But not right before they were about to die, that's when they communicated without words. John and Rodney? Well, in the last ep, and I don't really think of this as a spoiler, so forgive me for mentioning it, in the last ep, Rodney - again - has to do something for which he has almost no time, and -again, it involves typing and "interfacing" or whatever, and that's when they banter. That's when John says something starting with "Rodney?" in that strange, reproachful questioning tome he often uses with him. And Rodney says something like "I know, I know, but blablabla" and STOPS TYPING.
Stops typing, thereby endangering and almost killing EVERYONE. (not that they show or SAY that, I don't think they even noticed). Okay, so it's not like I was convinced that they were in danger before, but really, this would not have happened under Jack's command.

But apart from all the structural things I dislike about SGA and apart from the very weak writing (and they knew better in the beginning, didn't they? Where has all the writing gone?), a large part of me deciding not to watch SGA anymore is that even after three years, I completely failed to fall in love with the characters. Hell, I've been watching "Brothers&Sisters" for a mere week and already I care more about every single character of that show that I ever did about an SGA character.

Yes, Ronon has a hot body, but I hot bodies are nothing without brains. (and I don't mean that he isn't smart, but if he is, he doesn't get to show it too often)
Teyla is wonderful and pretty, but way too... uncomplicated... for me to really care about her.
Rodney, well, I love Rodney because he is such an arrogant asshole, except that he is really not an arrogant asshole, but I've never loved him. Not even in fiction.

And John?

Well, I think there was a time when I cared about John. In the beginning, when he suddenly found himself facing a task that he wasn't REALLY ready for, wasn't really expecting to happen, because even though it is possible, who thinks that their CO will get killed on the very first day of the mission? I love John in fiction (if the fiction is good.) In fiction, he sometimes breaks my heart with this huge capacity for love that he keeps bottled up together with all his gayness. And with his stupid way of diving right into the action, not because it is the right thing to do, but because he simply loves action. I don't know who it was, but someone wrote that fic where Rodney reads John's personnel file, and someone had written about him that he likes danger or something similar, and then Rodney starts paying attention and gets himself convinced that John is going to get them all killed. THAT's a John I can believe in. I also had no trouble at all believing in Helen's John in the dom/sub universe (I'm so bad with story title and not online right now, it's something like "Take your clothes of as directed", I believe?), John, secretly looking for an authority figure, BECAUSE of his authority issues, works amazingly well for me.

What does not work very well for me is John being played by Joe Flannigan. Could he look more bored? Like, when he dropped to his knees in *does not go into details* a scene in the last ep? Is less enthusiasm even possible?

Yes, it's scifi, the science dialogues suck (often), but at least Carter managed to look thrilled that she got the chance to say her lines. John is just bored, and lately he has started to look as if he hates the world and everyone in it.
I think he needs a vacation, and since he is unlikely to take one, I'm going to take one from him.

Bye, SGA, it was nice. But nothing more than that. I'll keep reading people's reactions, so maybe I'll tune in from time to time if an episodes sounds good, but don't count on it. I ill keep reading fic, but that's only because all the cool kids seem to like you, and I like the cool kids' fiction.

Oh, Stargate, I miss you. I really really miss you.
I was going to be all grown up about your end, telling myself that we had ten good years, amazing years, that all good things have to come to an end sometimes. That maybe it was time to go. That it's just a stupid TV show and I would get over it.
But I'm lying.

I'm not over you. I'm not. I miss you like a piece of myself.

I miss you.
I'm back from the most fabulous vacation ever. I'd tell you all about it, but I'm too busy catching up on slash and vids. (also, I hear there are new ipods, and hey, mine seems to have breathed his last breath just yesterday, how's that for timing?). So here's the summary:

I LOVE LOVE LOVE horses.

I LOVE France.

I love podslash.

I had dreams about a fic where Cameron is Daniel's something (I'm not sure what to call it, but I'm sure it involves a collar), and one night Daniel is somewhere (who cares about details?) where he runs into a not-so-happy-to-be-back-on-earth John Sheppard wearing eyeliner, and maybe glitter, and the he takes him home for Cameron. I'm currently looking for this fic all over, because I'm sure it must exist. DAniel. John. Cameron.
GLITTER.
Come on.

I did not write any postcards, but fear not, for I will leave for Hungary on Tuesday. I hear they have postcards there, too. I wonder if I can get a new ipod in just two days.
I just started rewatching stargate season 9 and have now reached the end of Origins.

Cut, under which I'm going to quote a dialogue from that ep, that has little to do with the plot, but if you are spoilerphobic, don't look )

I think I'm going to spend the rest of the night reading Jack/Daniel slash.
I haven't read all the J/D ficathon fic yet, still, I cannot help but a bit disappointed. From the ones that I've read [livejournal.com profile] saffronhouse is definitely my favourite. She created an absolutely amazing universe in a crossover with SGA with a Jack and Daniel who, even in the small scene we get to see, are everything I love and have loved about them in the past years. It's sad, but it doesn't matter as long as they are together, and so it made me very very happy. Sad, but happy. Nostalgic. Everything I feel about Stargate at the moment.

Other outstanding fics were the one by [livejournal.com profile] raqs (Spacepirates!) and [livejournal.com profile] kormantic (banter! Fun! Space races!LOVE!), and I really loved [livejournal.com profile] niamaea's and of course [livejournal.com profile] orca_girl's fics as well. I'm sure there are other good ones that I haven't read yet, and there are some really good writers who haven't posted yet. Let's hope they do.

Because most of the other, "new" authors' fics I've read in this ficathon were rather unspeakable. Bad. Very bad. The J/D ficathon always had a very high quality of fiction, so it's really not a surprise that it would have to decrease one time, but still, now that SG-1 has ended, it makes me even more sad. I just hope that those were the exceptions and that the other good fics simply haven't been posted yet.

And if that's not the case, there's always next year. I'm sure J/D slash will reach a new peek after the movie. You know, the movie where the program has been made public and Jack and Daniel retire to Minnesota to run a private space transport/safety/special services business. Jack will be a bit like Han Solo, Daniel will try to feel the force and Sam, and once they get tired of living on earth, they take an extended journey into space, to reunite with Teal'c and Sam, who is out ruling the universe with her superpowers intelligence.
And they lived happily ever after.

Life
...take places mainly at the office. Then it's home to the tv, bed, shower, office. Weekends since I moved were spent traveling (a lot), going home (I miss my horse and my dog SO much) or here, buying things for the appartment, and cleaning, shopping, ironing and all the other things I don't have time for during the week. I spent DAYS on the phone with the german t-kom because of my internet connection. Now they came and gave my DSL 2000 instead of 16000, because 16000 doesn't work. At least I'm online, though I really really want my 16000. 2000 is a joke. But, not complaining. And it only took three months!

Hey

( Mar. 18th, 2007 08:22 am)
I'm back for the weekend to celebrate my four years of lj anniversary and the last episode of Stargate ever. (actually, I was invited to a party, but who cares.) I can't talk much right now, I don't have the time or the words. I may have cried a little, but not much, that will come later when I've seen it again.

For now, I have just one thing to say about the last episode (spoilers) )
Will I watch another episode of "The Unit"? Or should I read more sad Stargate fics? Or should I steal a meme from [livejournal.com profile] trinityofone and post it?
Meme it is:

Name a fandom and I will tell you what I think I know about it, derived only from my LJ experience.
(this works, of course, best with fandoms I don't really know, but I will try my best to give you an lj version of the fandom I know.)
Rewatching season 1 has me high on Stargate love. I didn't know it was possible to still love them all so much after all this time, but it is. And since fandom is all about sharing the love, I thought I'd do some sharing of my own and rec you one of my favourite Daniel Jackson videos:

Let it be me by Carol S.

This vid is about Daniel fighting the good and the right, and yes, I know you all hate Saint Daniel, but you can't deny that he was always willing to give his life for his belief in the good, to save others, to save earth. And this Daniel, the one who believes in something worth fighting for and often that something is not fighting at all, that's the Daniel you'll see in this vid. I can't even describe what watching this Daniel does to me, all I can say is that I love him very very much.

Technically, I'd have to say that this is a gen vid, but if I can't help loving this Daniel like a mad loving person, then how can Jack not love this Daniel? Yes, the happy slasher in me sees Jack/Daniel love in the pure existence of Daniel, because there is no not loving Daniel. Just ask Jack.

Oh, I love them so much!
*loves*
*goes off to watch more Stargate vids*
'The Torment of Tantalus'

One of the more famous season 1 episode, on which quite a number of good fics are based. It starts with a great Jack/Daniel tradition: Jack is trying to get Daniel, who is obssessed with work, away from his desk. Only this time it's not really Daniel's desk, but the briefing room. No, I have no idea why he watches the video of Ernest traveling through the gate 50 years ago in the briefing room and not in his office, but I assume it is because a) they hadn't built an office for him yet, and b) there was no VCR in the non-existing office.

Anyway, Jack is clearly worried. "How many hours of this stuff have you looked at?" And then he gives him a very small, short punch on the shoulder, but first he punches the chair, as if he is trying to hold back and then reconsiders because clearly touchingDaniel's shoulder would not mean anything to anyone except to Jack himself, and not touching him would look as if he was trying not to touch him, and that would be suspicious.
Me, I think that Jack coplicated things too much for himself there. Good thing he becomes more comfortable with touching Daniel later. A LOT more comfortable.;-)

When Daniel sees that they managed to turn on the gate back then, he is completely baffled: "WHY? Why would they stop their research if they had actually managed to turn it on?"
He just doesn't understand how they could not have want to know more, not have wanted to find out everything they could about the gate and where it leads. It's a very nice opening for the episode.

More... )

The rest is history: they survive, Daniel is a bit heartbroken because he can't go back and Jack and Daniel stand way way too close when they watch Catherine and Ernest hug in the end.


Last but not least: have some Torment of Tantalus fic:
Destina's wonderful "A Heart For Every Fate"
Graculus AU "Journey's End", in which Jack and Daniel go through the gate in the fourties, and not Ernest.
(I could have sworn I read more Torment of Tantalus fic than that, but these are the only two that I remember right now.)
Oh, it's been way too long since I last watched this episode. I think this is one of the few eps I only watched once (okay, maybe twice) and there is so much I forgot. For example, I completely forgot that they meet a Unas in the labyrinth. Completely forgot. How does one forget important things like that?

Anyway, about the ep:

First, let me point out that in the beginning, when Hammond gives Daniel the box they will later hand over to the Cimmerians, Daniel walks up the ramp to where the Malp is standing and puts the box somewhere on the Malp. The Stargate is already dialing. Now, what is the Malp doing on top of the ramp? And what is Daniel doing up there when the gate is dialing? We know the event horizon's "kawoosh" destroys everything in front of it, so bye bye,Daniel and Malp. (is there a technical term for "kawoosh"?). Obviously, both survived (did you know they only have one MALP, and it was really really expensive? I think it was said in an episode commentary once).

The box, btw, shows four humans, two adults and two kids. And the woman has very noticeable breasts and wears no clothes. I'm just pointing this out because american tv is usually so prudish that you don't ever see a naked breast, so I was surprised to notice that they would design the box like this, when it wasn't necessary.

The scene when they arrive on the planet is completely ridiculous. Vikings shouting "Thor! Thor!"? No wonder the actors laughed so much.

Teal'c and Jack are fabulous in this episode. I admit that I almost didn't watch "Thor's Hammer" today, because I remembered it to be rather boring. And the whole labyrinth thing is rather boring really, it's not like they were ever in real danger. But Teal'c and Jack make it worth watching. They are clearly already very close, but they are also still strangers, because there is so much they don't know about each other and there respective worlds.

Teal'c, in the labyrinth when Jack tells him to try to fire his staff weapon, makes a comment about how Jack's machine gun still functions because this race "may have considered projectile weapons too primitive to be concerned about". I'm just pointing this out because it becomes important later in the whole replicator arc. That's continuity. ;-)

Sam is a bit, well, I don't want to say annoying, so I'm just going to call her pale. It's not her fault, they must have intended for her to be the voice of reason and that can easily turn into someone who takes the fun out of everything. And she is right, of course, when she tries to stop Daniel from following Kendra any further, but it's the way she delivers it that makes me angry at her. Can't she see that this is Daniel's only hope? That he NEEDS to know?
On the other hand, I understand her. She just lost her commanding officer and earth's most important intelligence source re: Goa'uld, so all she wants is to go back, get reenforcements and try to save, well, Jack and Teal'c, but also her career. At least that's what I couldn't help thinking.

Daniel is heartbreaking and wonderful the whole episode. The hope in his eyes when he hears that he might be able to save Sha're. He keeps asking questions, as if he is already imagining bringing Sha're to the planet. And when he tells Kendra that he still dreams of Sha're, imaging that there is some sort of connection... *cries*

And then Jack is the one to destroy this hope, and that makes me cry even more (not literally, of course, the episode isn't that good. It's just a very real ache in my heart.) The look in Daniel's eyes when he says "Do you know what this means" to Jack? Then Jack, so sure: "It's the only way out of here." and "Teal'c is here now." And he hands Daniel the staff weapon and makes him destroy the hammer himself! It's maybe the only thing to do, because it is a decision that Daniel, if he can'T make it himself, at least has to carry himself. He, too, has to take responsibility for destroying the hammer and saving Teal'c, has to accept it as the right thing, and having him destroy it is the only way to accomplish this. But it seems so cruel at that moment. And yet, what I think is not "Poor Daniel", though I think that too, no, mostly I think "Poor Jack, for having to crush Daniel's only hope." Because even back then it clearly breaks his heart a little.

*thinks about tragic Jack/Daniel love for a bit longer*

Right, let's move on. The scene where they destroy the hammer is also showing a very clear chain of command. Jack decides that the hammer will be destroyed and so it will be. There is no question that what Jack says will be done. Yes, Daniel protests (a little, because he knows he has to do it), yes, Teal'c says he wants to stay. But ultimately, no one questions that it is Jack's decision. I noticed this because command structure is something that is completely missing from the current SG-1. Imagine the scene with Mitchell and Vala:

Cameron:"So I guess we will have to destroy this thing."
Daniel:"But! *long explanation of many things that completely distracts Cameron because of the way Daniel keeps wetting his lips with his tongue when he talks*
Sam: *didn't listen to Cameron or Daniel but is already taking apart the wall to figure out how to turn the hammer off*
Vala: *bouncing* "Can I? Can I? I never get to shoot things!" *pouts*
Teal'c: *raises eyebrow*

I mean, I really love Cameron and Vala, but they are so not SG-1. SG-1 is those people standing in the labyrinth in Thor's hammer, a very young SG-1 that still has so much to go through, so much to learn and to become a team, but with all the parts that we will later see and love about them already showing. And I love them so much, even now, after almost ten years.

Since it is a bit windy over here, I decided not to leave the house and watched some Stargate season 1 instead. The season 1 box set was the first thing I bought in 2007, and what a wise decision that was. Of course, I had already seen all the eps (in fact, I own them on VHS, so if anyone wants the tapes, please holler).

Season 1 is pure nostalgia, so let me remind you of some of the wonderful moments:

Stargate SG-1 Season 1 'Children of the Gods' - 'Brief Candle' )

Also, a meme:
The 'Tell Me What to Create' AnonyMeme!

The rules are simple. You comment with your username, and people can tell you what they want to see you write. Or draw, or vid, or icon, whatever. Despite the name, they don't have to do it anonymously, though of course they certainly can. You then go through the comments and if you see that person who you've always wanted to write a Green Arrow AU set in the Terror, where Ollie is a Scarlet Pimpernel-esque figure, smuggling people out of Paris, then you tell them that they should write it.

Artists/writers/vidders are under no obligation to actually create these things, of course. But those memes are always fun when they go 'round and, well, I don't know about you, but I have no shame left and am fully willing to call a spade a spade: TELL ME WHAT TO WRITE, PLEASE!

You can tell me what to write (inlcuding episode reviews and meta) here: Linky link.

My Top Ten Shows of 2006

1. NCIS
This was a hard decision, because I think that other seasons, particularly season 2 of NCIS was a lot better than the current season. But I still enjoy the hell of the show, and I love them for never neglecting the characters, always revealing something more, funny, absurd, personal,about them. And compared with The Unit, which made second place, I still love NCIS more. It's not a rational decision, it comes from the heart.


2. The Unit
I love this show so much. The shows keeps getting better and better, even though they continue to hint at things and then not tell us, which drives me insane. It helped, of course, that 2006 was even more The Bob! show than before, but even apart from that, I loved each and every episode. Well, except for the season 2 opener. I'm still not over the shock.


3. Stargate
Okay, so it's not the show we knew and loved all these years anymore. But it's still a good show, and there are still aliens and Stargates and spaceships, combined with action, humour and our favourite characters: Daniel, Sam, Teal'c and surprisingly also Vala and Cameron, who have really grown on me. Vala, because she is cute, Cameron, because of his huge crush on the whole team and the wa he worships them with practically everything he does. Of course, you gotta wonder if they ever taught him what it means to be in command, but I like it when he watches SG-1 play with alien toys, not even trying to be in charge. And let's not forget that there is still Jack to love, who is sitting in Washington pretending that being without Daniel doesn't break his heart every day. It's so dramatic.
*loves SG-1*


4. Numb3rs
Had I made this list after two episodes into the new season, Numb3rs would have made the first place. I still can't believe how good the two-part season opener was. I love this show very much and they did some really great things with some of my favourite characters this year, but it continues to lose points with its "One outstanding, one boring episode" policy. Just throw out the boring plots this year, please?


5. Smith
*cries*
This was such a great show! It would have made #1, if it hadn't been cancelled so brutally after 3 episodes. What a great , great show. My heart's broken. BROKEN!


6. Veronica Mars
Judging purely from how much I'm looking forward to shows every week, Veronica Mars is at least #6. I wasn't happy with everything that happened this year, but it wasn't unhappiness from a TV POV, it was a personal unhappiness: some things I wasn't so interested in, some I found stupid. And that, given that the show is now set in college, is quite clever, really, because a college show could not be realistic if I were interested in everything that happened in it. I'm just too old for that. But overall, Veronica Mars continues to grow up with its characters, who are still some of the most human and real characters on TV. And the scene with Veronica and the phone in the cafeteria (I'm not going into details to avoid spoilers) is one of my favourite TV moments ever.


7. Doctor Who
I never expected to love the "new" Doctor so much, but I did. I loved the show, I loved the Doctor, I LOVED Rose, and then they made me cry, so now I don't think I'm ever going to love them again as much as I did this season, but I will also never forget how much I loved them.


8. Bones
Surprise! Yes, I enjoyed Bones quite a lot last year. It has gotten much better since the first season and all the characters are just..loveable. Even the Bones equivalent of Madame Director.


9. Eureka
Well, that was fun. ;-) No, really, this is the only thing I can say: fun. It's not a great, innovative show, but it is well-made fun with some nice ideas and sympathic characters. I can't remember one episode that disappointed me.


10. Torchwood
I already said once that I love Torchwood because it is clumsy, not despite of it. And yes, maybe I enjoyed parts of Torchwood more than Bones or Eureka, but parts of it were also horrible, that's what it is only #10. Bones and Eureka were more consistent, even though they didn't have the highlights Torchwood has. It's a close race. I think it was episode 11 of Torchwood that gave the decision. Still, love the show and its clumsiness.



Shows that almost made it into the Top Ten )


Other shows that I watched, that I didn't make it anywhere near the Top Ten )


Most Disappointing Shows of 2006 )

I think that's it. Quite a lot of shows, I know, but it's not like there was a new episode of each show every week, and besides, I was without work for half of the year. What's your excuse? ;-)

( Dec. 12th, 2006 10:20 pm)
I feel like I should say something fannish, once in a while, since most of you are probably here for fannish things. Only, none of my shows aired last week (apart from Men in Trees and CSI, which I don't talk about, and BSG, which I don't talk about anymore.) So, uhm, fannishness. What can I say?

Spent yesterday reading about pretty boys having sex, often while drunk and coming from a bar. Have developed unexpected taste for blowjobs given while kneeling on said bar's bathroom floor. Not me personally, I just like it when Jensen is the one on the floor. You all know how much I love Jack and Daniel, or Duncan and Methos or many others, but you have to admit that neither of them lend themselves to bar-bathroom-blowjob-fics. Well, maybe Daniel, but he doesn't really spent much time in bars and if he does, these days he's more likely to be there with Cameron than with Jack. Not that Daniel/Cameron wouldn't be nice, too. And Cameron, he might just be crazy enough to go for it.
*mind wanders off*

Anyway, there wasn't much fannishness this week, but today there will be new NCIS and new The UNIT! Bob! To pass the time until then, I watched "For Love of the Game", one of my favourite baseball/wanna marry a superstar/tragic love movies ever. See how I'm almost not ashamed that I'm a Kevin Costner fan? Come on, who else could have played that role? Hmm?
No one, that's right. The world needs a Kevin Costner for movies like "For Love of the Game" or "Bodyguard" (*happy sigh*), or "Tin Cup", oh "Tin Cup"! Don Johnson and Kevin Costner in the same movie! How my fannish little heart leaps at the memory.

There, that was your fannish content for today. It's what happens when my shows aren't airing. But for the future, I promise not to talk about KC anymore, I can tell I'm alone in my fannishness.The guy doesn't even have a livejournal community dedicated to him. Other than[livejournal.com profile] die_costner_die, I mean. It's sad.
*goes off to watch Tin Cup. Or maybe Open Range. Or Bodyguard, one can always watch Bodyguard*
So, [livejournal.com profile] helenish talked about John Sheppard as a lover. [livejournal.com profile] thefourthvine then made a pollabout how our favourite characters are as lovers, when they are in bed with us (where, of course, they'd all want to be. At least in mine, because I'm Mary, Mary Sue).

I haven't really fantasized much about sex with characters before. I'm usually more focused on how the characters are with each other. So the poll actually made me think (that's new), and then it surprised me by finding out that Teal'c and Cameron would be better in bed (for me) than Jack and Daniel. I guess I'm such an J/D OTP girl that I can't even imagine having good sex with either of them. Okay, it was good, but not that good.

Now that I've mentioned sex and bed and Jack and Daniel a couple of times, I'm sure you want to know more about my sexual adventures with various fannish characters. So here's what I came up with. Behind the cut. )

Uhm, this has gotten a bit longer than I thought it would be, so for now, it's only SG-1. Let me know if you are interested in other fandoms or specific characters.

Stolen from many people.

Sum up your former/current fandoms in a few sentences, as if they were human beings. Then let others guess "who" you're writing to.

1) You were my first relationship, well, the first "serious" one. In the beginning, I was only curious about you, but the more I found out, the deeper I fell in love. And what a love it was: I thought about you all day, talked about you, tried everything one could think of with you. I couldn't imagine ever loving anyone else. That was then, and times have changed. We don't see each other anymore, I can honestly say that I'm over you. But sometimes, out of the blue, I am reminded of you, and in these moments I can still feel traces of our love.
= Buffy, guessed by [livejournal.com profile] lunardreamed and [livejournal.com profile] webbgirl
Yes, I've only been in fandom five years (though I've been a fan longer), and it was Buffy who introduced me to fanfic, slash and fandom.

2) You were my shiny new love, you were MADE for me and I was crazy about you from the very first moment I laid eyes on you. Then they took you from me, sudden and much too soon. My wounds are fresh, and losing you still makes me cry.
= Smith, as guessed by [livejournal.com profile] ana_grrl.
I never knew it was possible to fall so hard so fast, and get your heart broken in almost the same moment.

3) I love you, I am in love with you. You have some strange ideas, and at the beginning, because of my past experiences, I didn't fully trust you. But even when you did things that I would have left anyone else for, you never disappointed me. Everything about you is perfect and I would marry you, if it wasn't for your friends, who are mostly lunatics.
= NCIS, guessed by [livejournal.com profile] webbgirl.
With Kate gone, Madam Director and the pornstache, you'd think I'd be far gone, but I've learned to trust the love so I stick around. I just wish the fanfic were better.

4) We had a long and rather intense affair, but there are only a few really memorable moments. Your charms are so obvious and yet there is so much more behind your pretty surface, so much that I cannot stop thinking about even now, after we have moved apart. I can't believe some of the things you made me do!We may have moved apart and don't see each other much anymore, but when we do, the love and passion between us is still as hot as it was before.
= Highlander, guessed by [livejournal.com profile] lunardreamed
The few memorable moments are the Methos episodes, almost the only ones I keep coming back to. And the things HL made me do? Well, I fell for a guy who's wearing shoulder thingies and red(!) pants and then lends them to his boyfriend. Among other unspeakable fashion sins. Oh, Duncan, I love you, and I'm still waiting for the night in Paris where you take me out for dinner and dancing. Sweet sweet dreams...

5) You are an affair that I'm almost a bit ashamed of. Or rather, I feel I should be, but I feel so much for you that I can't. We were always more about the sex than about every day life. I don't call you anymore, but when we meet each other on the street, I always feel like coming home.
=The Sentinel, guessed by [livejournal.com profile] webbgirl
I love it. I know it's not a good show, and I try not to mention that I've watched all its episodes more than once in certain company. But watching Jim and Blair play House never fails to make me happy.

6) You were my childhood friend, an innocent love long before I knew what relationships were all about. When we met years later, we tumbled into bed as if it were always meant to be. I still think you are wonderful and I love remembering you, but if we are honest with each other, we were never meant to last.
= Due South
When I watched Due South for the first time, I was young and innocent and had no slashy thoughts at all. Okay, I may have had some innocent dreams about a certain mountie, but really really innocent. Then, after I had discovered slash, it took a while until I thought, hey, there could be Due South slash. Let's check it out. RayV/Fraser never worked for me, too innocent my relationship with them. Ray K I got to know only then, and we got a long really well, but somehow we always lived in different worlds and I never really found my way into the fandom.

7) I'm a bit afraid of you. You are kinky and dark and so complex, I'm afraid I'll get lost in you, eaten up by the crazy people you hang out with, drawn into your world of twilight and mystery. But I cannot resist you completely, so I keep coming back for little or long tastes, that leave me feeling good and sated, and a little bit dirty and guilty.
= Harry Potter
I like my Harry Potter dark. I don't think there's any fandom where I've read more dark fics, end of the world, good against bad with the bad winning so often. Kink, too, but I read a lot of that in XF as well. I've seen a lot of crazy people in HP, seriously crazy, so I stayed in my not-so-little Harry/Snape corner, where I like to take long (so many HP epics!) holidays from time to time, until I get scared off by yet another WIP that isn't finished after four years.

8) You are it. The one and only. I never get tired of you, even though there are some sides that I chose to ignore and won't take a second look at. You are not even perfect, far from it, but if I had to decide, it'd be you, only you, for the rest of my life. Oh, who am I trying to kid, I am already married to you. I love you.
= Stargate, as guessed by [livejournal.com profile] ana_grrl.
Oh, come on, who else am I married to?

9) We started out as friends and we still haven't progressed far. We made out a couple of times, but we both know it wasn't perfect. We also know that the moment will come, if we just keep trying. Meanwhile, I'm falling for you more and more every time we meet.
= Numb3rs, guessed by [livejournal.com profile] webbgirl
The show keeps getting better and better, but I still haven't found much fanfic that interests me. We will keep trying, though. ;-)

10) You are the partner my parents never wanted me to have. You stand for everything I am against, and still I know that I cannot resist you. Why am I so easy when it comes to you? Why am I so forgiving? Because underneath your macho-tough guy attitude, you are smart and charming and very sexy. You are too occupied with yourself to sleep with me, but I don't mind. I just like watching you and being around you. And dreaming about having sex with you.
= The Unit, or The Bob! Show, guessed by [livejournal.com profile] webbgirl
I don't sleep with the Unit= I don't read fanfic (I don't think there is much fanfic for the Bob! show). I'm happy with just watching the show and making up my own little stories in my head.
I'm torturing myself watching sad Stargate music vids. Okay, they aren't all sad, it's just that their lives are so tragic and they lost so much and so many, and they LOVE each other so. Oh, the love, how do they live with loving each other like that. How does it not tear them apart? And Jack, oh god, Jack, Jack Jack Jack, and Daniel, DANIEL, Jack and Daniel, Daniel and Jack, Jack/Daniel all the pain and the suffering and the breaking hearts.
It's all about love, loss and saving the planet, and now my shows has been cancelled and...
*bursts into tears*
