Ahhh! Nervousness  
OMG OMG OMG!!! The Last Man, coming right up! Season finale, here! And - I would be excited, except.... PEOPLE ARE CRYING. OMG. I'M SO NERVOUS.

I don't want to cry! I hate crying!!! SGA supposed to provoke squeeing happiness - NOT tears!

Ahhhh. I'm seriously nervous. I haven't read any spoilers (a HUGE exersize in self-control, let me tell you) so I don't know what's going to happen... eep, just 45 minutes left until it finally airs where I live...

AUGH. This is agony. Somebody end the torture, quick.

Or just change the subject... sgabigbang! Right, perfect. Is anyone considering signing up? It sounds fun, and they're allowing Shep/Weir pairing this year... I even have the perfect plot bunny idea. *cackles* But I'm not signing up unless someone I know does - that way I'll have someone to commiserate with when if I get stuck. (If, dammit. No point in getting pessimistic already...)

Right. Back to being nervous. *chews on nails*  O_O


ETA: Never mind! THE LAST MAN WAS AWESOME. IT WAS THE AWESOMEST AWESOME THAT EVER AWESOMED. THAT IS ALL. \o/ \o/ \o/

IT'S WORTH THE CRYING. REALLY. WATCH IT. BE AMAZED.

As for Big Bang...I've put my name in to do Sparky art. *shifty eyes* I feel like a newbie again, but it'll be fun. XD

You should totally sign up. I'll offer private cheering.

I KNOW. IT WAS LIKE SO AMAZING. I AM AMAZED. AND LOVING GENERAL!LORNE!!! \o/

Oh, cool! I can't wait to see your art. I'm thinking of signing up and co-writing with anuna_81, just to reduce the scary factor of 40,000 words. So. Should be fun.
comanche_ridercomanche_rider on March 9th, 2008 01:55 am (UTC)
GENERAL LORNE. YEEEEEEES.

Oh boy, now I'm thinking "General Loins", and, um, Veggie Tales. I need rest. XD

I've heard 40k words isn't too scary once you get started. Of course, I've only done around 4k for one story, not counting the sappy romance novel I co-wrote a while back.

DO IT. It will be all kinds of awesome, and two great writers can never go bad! \o/
alternate0egoalternate0ego on March 9th, 2008 04:14 pm (UTC)
It's actually not so much the word count as actually finishing the story. I suck at finishing stories, I start them and then leave them when I get stuck. *sigh*

Although, hey, with a co-writer maybe that won't happen! *crosses fingers*

THE LAST MAN = AWESOMENESS.

\o/\o/\o/\o/\o/\o/\o/\o/\o/\o/\o/\o/\o/\o/\o/\o/\o/\o/\o/\o/\o/\o/\o/\o/\o/\o/\o/\o/\o/\o/\o/\o/\o/\o/\o/\o/

As you can tell, I'm a bit giddy right now. XD

As for the sgabigbang -- I'm not doing anything, but I can always poke you with a big stick. Moral support, ya know.

DOOOO IIIIT. You know you want to.

*pokes*
alternate0egoalternate0ego on March 8th, 2008 10:37 pm (UTC)
YES!! TOTAL AWESOMENESS.

Oooh, goodie. A big stick. >.> You should do it too!! You've written 50,000 words before.

You liked it? I was just on the anti-s4, anti-Keller, anti-Carter threads and they all hated it. Oh, hang on. *checks prefix* ANTI, right, that might explain why they hated it, lol. I haven't seen it, but I've heard a lot about it and it didn't sound that great...want to be the angel on my shoulder telling me why it's awesome? Sometimes I get so much negative feedback that I'm all biased and forget there's another side. The double-take of mine when I saw TLM and AWESOME says it all. Fill me in? ;)
alternate0ego: lizzy squeealternate0ego on March 8th, 2008 10:34 pm (UTC)
Oh, well. I'm not so anti-Keller anymore, so I liked her in the epi, and OMG Keller/Rodney is the cutest thing like EVA. *is reduced to teen!speak*

As for Carter... well.... :P She was horribly heroic and Mary-Sueish as usual, but even that couldn't put a damper on my joy. Much, anyway. *scowls* How sad is it even her death can't satisfy my wrath? (Oh, right, because it's sadly not permanent...)

And HA!! The epi was also, imo, a final, killer blow to the horror that is Ronon/Keller. So totally in favor of Ronon/Teyla. My shippy little heart is filled with malicious joy. \o/

Besides that, I liked the plot (most interesting and original season finale from SGA so far, I think - nice to have a change from "OMG!! THE WRAITH ARE COMING!!!") and the whole apocalypse theme was very, very cool. (It's CANON now!!!) Plus, Lorne was awesome. My love for him is like no other. \o/ *pets Lorne*

There was also Shep being the amazing hero as usual, lots of Sad!eyed!Rodney (which, wow, pulled on all sorts of mothering-I-want-to-hug-the-life-out-of-you instincts I didn't even know I had) and Todd! Who I am liking more and more, btw.

The only things I didn't like were (1) Micheal - at first I felt sorry for him, and now he's just getting on my nerves. I will be very, very happy when Teyla just socks the life out of him. (2) The ending. It was kind of lame and anti-climatic. (In the words of meridith_smith: "The ending was funny. Well, it wasn't supposed to be funny, but it was.") They should have ended it a little earlier, on a different cliffhanger.

And that's... pretty much it. It would have been perfect if Elizabeth was there, of course (no duh) but since we apparently can't have her, then I'll take what I can get. And uuuuggh, I can't believe I have to wait 4 months for the next season... *dies*
borg_princess: hot when evilborg_princess on March 10th, 2008 10:51 pm (UTC)
Hee, I love that you're so ferociously anti-Carter and I'm now ambivalent, but I'm still anti-Keller and you're shipping her and McKay! What is it with the redeeming powers of ship? I only liked Carter again because her chemistry with Cam makes me want to ship them even though the show's over and they have no future but OMG, they were so cute in the movie!

And um, spamming the wrong journal with my Carter/Mitchell glee. Where was I?

Argh, still so irritated that Keller hasn't even been there a season or developed a bond with people that's withstood a few seasons and yet she gets the canon romances with both Ronon and McKay. That's what makes me hate her. She might have all the chemistry in the world with McKay but considering that they RUINED Spanky by hooking her and Ronon up when he's supposed to love Teyla [not to mention the whole Athosian lover impregnating her thing *despairs* How did they screw this up so thoroughly?]I can't forgive her. I know, irrationally hating on the writers' pet when it's not her fault but argh. Anyway, you're certainly making me less rabid when it comes to her, lol.

Hmm, seems things haven't changed- TATB always wimp out with their endings. Which is fine and fun and all when it involves resurrecting the whole team, live and whole and healthy, but extra aggravating when they DIDN'T SAVE LIZZIE. If they wanted to be all dark and evoke jeopardy, why not kill someone in the finale? [I'm sure you'd be nominating Carter for that distinction, lol. She really is all right when she's on SG-1, honest]

Keep me updated on season 5! *hugs* Yay for your endurance skills, heh.

Yeah, I know where you're coming from. It's still hard to watch the show, because every time I see Carter I'm thinking "Elizabeth should be there, dammit", but since I can't change it, might as well enjoy what I can...

Cowrite? With me?! Wow, I'm - speechless. I'd love to! I've never co-written with anyone before, though. How does it work, exactly? Do we take turns writing chapters, or is there another way? Do you have any ideas? I have two, but one is a 'fork in the road' for the s4 episode 'Tabula Rasa' (which may or may not be a problem, since you didn't watch the episode...) and the other is also post-s4. Hmmm... But yes, I'd love to try and co-write with you. ^_^

alternate0egoalternate0ego on March 9th, 2008 12:27 am (UTC)
Oh, a fork in the road is sort of an AU thing, where something that could have happened didn't, or vice versa. Basically screwing with canon. For instance, if someone wrote an AU where the Genii did manage to take over Atlantis, that'd be a fork in the road.

Yes, sparky, of course. (Because sparky PWNS ALL.) Right, right, that makes sense. I have a general idea for a story, but not a real plot yet. The prompt I liked was "Tabula Rasa - they don't recover all their memories." I was thinking that they don't recover any of their memories (yet, anyway) which would be so much fun, because the team has to re-learn to trust each other and so on. *cackles* And all Sheppard can remember is a vague image of a woman (guess who) and he decides to try and find her. (And thus Liz is rescued! Hurrah!)

I don't know if that's coherent (hmm, probably not) but it's just a vague idea so far.

Or, we could do Evil!Liz vs. Angst!John. After the replicators took Elizabeth, they used torture, manipulation and lies to turn her against Atlantis. And John has to convince her that they didn't abandon her to the replicators, that she should leave the Dark Side, etc.

Icon love! I remember first seeing that picture and going speechless with joy, because omgawwsocute, Shep with kiddie!! alvleolkdajpelfakj awpeoiv!!!11!

Oh, good. Sparky sign-ups start on Monday, so we do it then.

I actually don't have any beta reading experience, but hey, how difficult can it be? Can't know until you try...

1 am? Go sleep! It's only 5 pm over here, but good night anyway. *hugs* ^_^
