Big isuee with the missing Trio scene

February 14th, 2008 (01:07 am)
amused

feeling a just bit: amused

I'm apparently the worst fan ever, because I had no idea about the cut scene from Trio until stumbling upon a puzzling reference in surreallis' journal. After glaring at the screen and asking my cat Djuna, "What the hell is she talking about?" I finally went to the good ol' Sam and Jack list on Yahoo!Groups and sussed out the situation.

In case anyone else has similarly been living under a rock, I'll cut the scene hereCollapse ).

Oh, wait. Would this still be considered a spoiler? I suppose it could be. So, I guess I'll go back under a cut to discuss how I think the biggest issue, for me, is that this seems really out of character for SamCollapse ).

Deep breath. That felt really good. Given I haven't acclimated to my "real life" routine yet, I haven't quite been able to work my fannish love back into things. Thankfully, an IT guy at work secretly loves SG and we squee! back and forth rather often. Endearingly, he tells me not to tell his girlfriend he's a geek, because the IT thing? Totally doesn't give it away. :)

The show Psych basically takes all of SG-1 and Atlantis's minor characters. Amusing.

Teryl Rothery talks about a pet goat named Cassie on a speed date with Shawn and it made me smile.

Quick thoughts on Tok'ra/Jolinar.

June 6th, 2007 (11:24 am)
blah

feeling a just bit: blah

The Tok'ra fascinate me, in general; both as Goa'uld with better politics and as individuals. Jolinar, in particular, for obvious reasons. (Tok'ra love + Sam love = Jolinar love.)

So.

Teal'c: It is. Jolinar once tried to overthrow one of the System Lords but was defeated when Apophis joined the battle. He escaped during the slaughter of his armies.

(In the Line of Duty)


Now, I feel as though TPTB have never really given us definitive parameters/ground rules in regards to the Tok'ra. Maybe it's just me, but it would seem we don't really know a whole lot for sure about them. We can infer/guess/speculate based on what we see, but it's really all rather open. And I suppose that's part of the nature of their "race" - very secretive, stealthy, and generally something of a living myth for the Goa'uld (and presumably others).

For that reason, I guess Jolinar's infamy could be somewhat exaggerated. I mean, if I had a particularly meddlesome enemy, I'd totally embellish to make myself seem all the more powerful for withstanding attempts on my reign/life. (Wouldn't you? Oh...)

Still, I'd really love to know what exactly went down with Jolinar. If she was going on undercover missions alone, she was clearly trusted and considered more than capable. But to try to overthrow one of the System Lords with armies of her own...? (Am I correct in reading that quote from Teal'c that the "He" escaping is Jolinar and not the Goa'uld? My DVD's are packed away and I feel it's ambiguous in text.)

Also, the idea of Jolinar and Teal'c fighting in the same battle on opposite sides fascinates me, as well.

And, because I love him dearly (dead or alive), Martouf and Jolinar's relationship is something I wish could be explored more. Or talked about more. (Which is why I'm on a couple [dead] Tok'ra lists.) While he's obviously not a low-level lemming within the Tok'ra ranks, I don't see him overthrowing System Lords by himself. (But there again, Jolinar's doing so could have just been part of the legend. Her name might have simply been the one the Goa'uld found out about.) So, I'm curious about their dynamic.

But then, while Martouf always struck me as just a bit... hm. Well, not weak-willed or timid, but kind of a willowy romantic hero figure. Lantash, on the other hand, was obviously the fiery, aggressive, dominating one. And he may have had more experience before Martouf that could rival hers.

Yeah. I'm not really going anywhere with this, per se. I was just thinking about it. I read a post or a quote or something last night that mentioned Jolinar attempting to overthrow one of the system lords and it struck me in a "Hey, wait, that's kind of a big deal" way.

I'm one of those who believe Sam is still affected in some ways by Jolinar's remnants - even if just by dreams, etc. - and that's potentially a pretty weighty person to be carrying around with you.


And now I really ought to get back to my job searching.

busy

feeling a just bit: busy

I'm dreaming of the day I can sit and think about fannish things and do more than scan my f-list. And when I can watch episodes again! (Having my DVD's on the shelf ahead of me is cruel.) Can't wait for summer... except I can, because I don't want to rush these last few weeks.

But I'm taking a break - "break" - from cover letters and tweaking my stupid résumé and scanning my f-list and came across the inevitable discussion/drama of Atlantis s4 casting and I just have one question.Collapse )

Attention F-List:

bored

feeling a just bit: bored
music: Zero 7

Okay, so.

It's come to my attention that I have two distinct groups of people who hang around my journal - Stargate sorts who are undoubtedly bored by my real life flounderings and friends from real life who have no idea what all this Stargate nonsense is about. Either way, except for the one or two who span both, it means a lot of sifting and/or additional scrolling. It's caused me to alternate between going light on one or the other, however I'm feeling the journal should lean at the time. I've avoided posting certain things, just because there's this strange sense I don't want to get too personal for those who are just interested in the occasional SG/Fannish things (like pictures of friends and so forth) and don't want to go too heavy on the SG for fear of irritating people who have no interest.

There just seems to be a line I'm weirdly afraid of crossing. I don't know. *Shrug*

And, what with graduation, I'm sure there'll be lots of posts about real life - job searching, moving, friends, etc. Also, while not necessarily the ideal medium, I'm realizing more and more this has become an easy way to touch base for those who live far away (a "newsletter," one person said), so I don't really want to avoid that part of it.

But there's also the new AT project coming out and the end of SG, plus the DVD's, and while I haven't really had time this year I do like ficcing and such.

I considered filters, but then that seemed a bit confusing and a hassle. (For me, at least. Heh.) So, I've ultimately decided to just create another journal: minorhankspks (so original, I know).

This journal is going to remain as my base of operations for Stargate/Farscape/Fannish stuff, to minimize inconvenience for those who hang around casually. minorhankspks is going to be used for real life updates and contemplation.

I've already friended those who I assumed would want to be ("real life" friends or those who have been around a while and tend to comment often on "real life" stuff), but I didn't want to assume on anyone else. (And just did that for convenience, so don't feel obligated.) This isn't me trying to take a count or something, so friend or de-friend at will. I really won't be offended - promise!

*Hugs* to all.

I love that my body is totally like, "What the hell did you just do to me??"

Except I don't. I haven't run like that since autumn. (And, oh Lord, it shows.)

But I did see a grand total of 17 deer this morning on Western Drive. Really rather striking - and slightly frightening. I mean, I'm sure it's not unheard of that they stampede, yeah?

Dear Miami University,

If you break my fucking rear axel, you will fucking buy me a new one. The end. Where is the argument here?

So. I won't be going home this weekend. This had better not be indicative of how my 22nd year is going to go.

SG1: Bounty .... and total S/C thoughts.

feeling a just bit: blank

Cover letter and résumé mess is sent out. Relief!


Aaand how about I was totally worried about Bounty, but...Collapse )

So, all that was pretty useless, but it killed some time. And now I think I'll just go to bed, because writing about microbiology just doesn't sound enticing. At all. (Of course, it won't tomorrow at 6am, either, but at least that's not now.)

Someone hire me, please.

It's -1 outside. Isn't that just fabulous?

It's 1.18am and I'm working on a stupid cover letter, so I can work on my stupid resume (totally too lazy for the accent marks) tomorrow. At least then my resume will be up-to-date and I'll only have to alter it slightly for other jobs. Still. This is... tedious.

Shoot me. Or hire me. Whichever.


I'm also re-watching Farscape for, like, the third time since break. (It's sick, I know, but why have all the eps if you're not going to isolate yourself in your room and ignore the outside world during winter months? Hm?) I'm only on 2x02 right now.
