Lynn-JM said that"O'neill won't be making any reappearence this year" (2005). The second part of the season doesn't start until Jan. 2006. He's teasing us again or he calling Don Davis a lier!

That little tid bit of information Sam gave to Agent Barret regarding her single/not singleness, is that all we'll be getting on that issue this season, or can we expect a bit of elaboration?

PS. nice to see you and Paul on the season 8 special features.

His Answer was "That's it for now."


Hmm :-(

BUT for NOW. ;)

i appreciate him giving us the headsup. but he also gave us something to hold onto. he could have just said that's it. but he added 'for now', and it made the difference. at least for me.

((((sg-1fanintn)))) Thanks for finding the silver lining that I failed to see!!! My reasoning powers were compromised at the mere hint of negativity on JM's part!!! So, let's see what hidden Shippy message that Sam and Jack's phone call will reveal!!! I just hope that we hear Jack's voice on the other end. His face whilst he speaks will be the best.

i want to say something... i've noticed that shippers are preparing for a sam/jack phone convo. amanda never said they were going to *show* sam and jack sharing a phone convo, she only said they talk on the phone. as much as i HATE to burst anyone's hopes and dreams, i don't want to see another 'mobius' letdown with expectations that weren't lived up to. so, shippers, be prepared that the only phone convos between sam and jack are going to be hinted at or done off screen. forewarned is forearmed to me.


(((shippers)))

be prepared. stay strong. keep the hope.

joe's answers tonight actually made me feel *very* good about things.

JM - "Just two people who were drawn together by a mutual attraction that developed over time."


not sure i like this answer. :/

i can see the relay not being thought of as a true love story at the beginning of the show, but with everything they've been through, i consider it one 'now.'

well, i hope the resolution of their journey will be worth it.

Yep. You're right. That's how it happens. My hubby and I knew each other for 6 years before we started dating, dated 9 years before we got married and then had our first baby before our first anniversary (although she was a premmie!).

Yep - that's how most people fall in love (although hopefully most people don't take as long as Sam and Jack and me and my hubby!! Tee Hee :-) )

:p

i seem to be on different wavelengths with most shippers tonight. :o

his answer - "Just two people who were drawn together by a mutual attraction that developed over time."

it bothered me because whether it didn't start off as a love story, i see it as one now and wanted him to confirm it. but i guess... i can see what you guys are saying. but i didn't ask joe about their history, i asked him about the here and now of their statis. BUT, developed means a- to grow by degrees into a more advanced or mature state, and b- to increase or expand. but did joe mean the attraction grew or what came of it?... :S too. much. thinking....

Hi shipper family!

Long time no see...real life has been extremely busy and I've poked my head in a few times in the last week (but didn't have anything to add to the conversation). However, I had to put in my take on JM's comments from last night.

I think that he's given us another hint at things to come and how TPTB feel about the relationship. They may not want it out (the relationship) in everyone's view, but they do at least acknowledge that it is part of the story-line. The fact that JM said "for now" is a wonderful tease. I agree with majorsal that it's better than a plain old
"that's it" .

I'm looking forward to Friday's episode, but I'll have to tape it, or watch it when it airs again at 11:00 as my son has a football game. Perhaps it will have something in it for us shippers.

Take care everyone and keep shipping!

LOL4JACK... my suggestion is anything by Gail R. Delaney, particularly her fic "Always". It's long...and soooo wonderful. Even mentions the yellow kitchen. :)

EDIT: Another great one is "Same as it ever was" by sue Corkill. Both can be found at SJD

Yay, I got my book by Sally Malcolm "A Matter of Honour" today. Go Angus and Robertson, and for only $14.95 (beats Minotaur!). So I will be engrossed in that for a while.

For all those who aren't feeling so hot, or have been having a bad day/week/month/year/decade/life :s I completely understand. Got told last week that I have to go into hospital for a very minor operation. So... I too need fanfics to tide me over for a week of recovery at home. Any other suggestions???

Back onto topic: Sam and Jack rule. Mutual attraction is always the basis for great and everlasting love.

Hi Joe, I hope you are doing well, but I guess you are busy, busy, very busy as you write in your blog, it's the time when you are going over 3/4 eps at the same time , we miss you....

I just watched Prodigy with the audio comentary, I didn't know that you and Paul wrote the song for the opening credits... I love that song.. and I'll miss it... Did you also write a song for the Atlantis DVD's comentary? Have you come up with some lyrics for the 10sec opening?

Sure. The lyrics to the 10 sec opening are: "Staargat-!" Da-da-da-dum.

LOL4Jack,

You MUST read "What will it take?' by SG-1 Fanfic if you haven't done so already. It is awesome and is 75 (yes I said 75) chapters long!! (Lot's of angst and loving in this one) http://www.fanfiction.net/s/2071449/1/ (I'm sure you can find it in one piece posted elsewhere)

For something funnier try "Small Favors" by Eve8 (28 Chaps) http://www.fanfiction.net/s/2294057/1/


"Reap what is sown" by Karabou is amazing as well and has 28 long chaps http://www.fanfiction.net/s/1999024/1/

I'll think of more and let you know.

Also there is a site that hosts Stargate fics that are of Novel length - just what you're looking for. Try here and let me know what you think http://www.shahrazad.net/~sgnovels/archive1/romdh.html

Finally had chance to watch the Vids MB and SNY have posted recently. Great job!

MB - I haven't seen Amanda in anything other than Stargate, so it was really strange to see her as journalist! Was the P-90 hiding just out of camera shot? :p I loved it :D

SNY - I love your tribute vids. You captured the essence of the ep - that Sam had to let go the things that were preventing her from finding happiness. I loved the way you cut from Grace saying "I don't want anything, but you do." straight to the infirmary and Sam and Jack smiling at each other. Also, it really hit me watching your vid when you cut from Jacob saying to Sam to "let go" to Jack coming to talk to Sam that tptb were blaming Sam's lack of a love life on Jack. When really the "hidden truth" was that he was the solution!

Damn.

Just when I thought they couldn't, wouldn't sink any lower... They go and say *that*. I'm sorry, I know many many family shippers here managed to see that in a positive light, and I really don't wanna take away from that, but...


They have just completely and thoroughly cheapened and degraded what I have long said was one of the best in sci-fi history, ranking right up alongside Han and Leah, and Mulder and Scully... But not anymore. With that little statement, they have as much as said, it didn't mean squat, the feelings aren't that deep at all, and, just as I suppose I should have expected from a show totally and thoroughly geared for the young male demographics, all about sex.

Gee, to think that I had believed their story was all about Love.

Respect.

Honor.

Duty.

Deep, abiding faith, trust, and true admiration.

Sacrifice.

I guess I was as much the fool as Pete.

Only two words come to mind now: "Never again."

Ladies and Gentlemen please ignore JM comments. Italian men are raised to annoy. When you have lived with Italian men as long as I have (raised with 2 brother, 2 male cousins and my father and uncle) you start to ignore any comments because the typical Italian men loves to annoy (there is an Italian word but don't know the spelling). They get pleasure when you yell back and turn red. They do it more! Lets take a breath and go on a merry shipper way-----and remember to ignore and smile!

I think that's exactly what it is. He says it started with a mutual attraction - perfectly true, but there's no reason to assume that it was just a sexual attraction. And it has definitly developed over time, into a beautiful, meaningful relationship based on all the things you said - "Respect, honour, duty, faith, trust, admiration and sacrifice."

Thanx for the support!

They've completely lost me as both a viewer and supporter.

The only universe remotely related to them is the world of fanfic, where we can actually get it right.

I've also come to the decision that I absolutely *HATE* Robert C Cooper. I totally blame him for the destruction of the Ship. I went over to the eps section to take a look at the writing teams....

Before I go any further on this, I'll warn ya,my head's really foggy with a sinus infection/bronchitis comob...

In my not too humble opinion, there seems to be two major writing camps: Robert, the anti-ship camp, and Joe, the Ship camp, and the other writers and directors seem to take their cues accordingly in developing the script and filming. I am also basing this on the various interviews, posts, and other comments that have come directly from these people.

I can practically hear the writers meetings as they determine the stories for the season... and the *discussions* ensuing as the two camps do all they can to *compromise* with regards to the ship. And much to my disgust, Robert won. He ekpt the ship to the back burner as much as he could, and fruthermore did everything possible to twist those shippy moments into something negative, or bittersweet at the very best.

I'm done with SG1. As done as I am with X-Files; I rarely even bother to watch those reruns, and I adored that series for a very long time. I still enjoy the fanfic though! Just as I will continue to do with Sam & Jack.

It's the "Just" and the implied denial of the "Love Story" that upset me.

Everyone is absolutely entitled to their own view. I'd be the last person to blast anyone for disagreeing with me... I'm too used to being disagreed with to let it bother me anymore. Getting older and wiser also comes with thicker skin.

Besides, discussion isn't that interesting when everyone agrees.... then all you get to read is page after page of "me too!"... Not much fun there!

I notice that JM didn't say that they are "just attracted to one another". He said they are "drawn together". I like that! It means they can't help themselves! They have been trying for 8 years to resist the urge to be completely together. What is a love story anyway? To me, it is when two people are "drawn" together, who overcome obstacles to eventually be together. Han and Leia were drawn together! They were from different backgrounds with different life directions. Leia tried to push Han away by critizisim, namecalling and playing the "Luke angle"; but she couldn't help herself! The UST was well played!

Yep, I agree with everything you said.
That's exactly how I understood his answer.
And actually it sounds quite positive, because with "just" he makes it sound like something natural and completely legitimate, something for that it is absolutely okay to exist in this show.

Question: Tell us your overall impression of season eight and how you wrapped it up. Are you happy with it?

Mallozzi (edited based on what I found interesting:p ) : "You know what? I think actually season eight was one of my favorite seasons. (:S) At the end of every season I always go over and rate the seasons according to my favorites. Season four has always been my favorite. (:D) Season eight comes a close second. I think it goes four, eight, seven, six, five." <snip> "We wrapped up the Goa'uld. I think we wrapped up the Sam/Jack 'shipper' debate..." (:rolleyes: please!)

Martin Gero: "And the Sam/Pete..."

Mallozzi: "Yeah, we wrapped up the Sam/Pete. We put that to bed, thank God. I was never a big fan of the Sam and Pete thing. You know I just find them so clingy and annoying when they were together." ( Too right!)

I'm glad at least one of TPTB show his Shipper nature. It's interesting that JM said in his thread that Robert Cooper is responsible for "not exactly" I'm considering sending him a "Thank you" card. I'm sure he doesn't get many of them.



And of course, I still adore Sam & Jack... and fear not, I have no plans to give up the fic-writing anytime soon! And if & when that day comes, I'll be sure all my Danlging WIPs are nice and neatly tied up! :D


THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!! Is there anything worse than dangling Ship??? :eek: :p

Finally had chance to watch the Vids MB and SNY have posted recently. Great job!

MB - I haven't seen Amanda in anything other than Stargate, so it was really strange to see her as journalist! Was the P-90 hiding just out of camera shot? :p I loved it :D

SNY - I love your tribute vids. You captured the essence of the ep - that Sam had to let go the things that were preventing her from finding happiness. I loved the way you cut from Grace saying "I don't want anything, but you do." straight to the infirmary and Sam and Jack smiling at each other. Also, it really hit me watching your vid when you cut from Jacob saying to Sam to "let go" to Jack coming to talk to Sam that tptb were blaming Sam's lack of a love life on Jack. When really the "hidden truth" was that he was the solution!Amanda's been in a lot of things beside Stargate.

Of course I included Stargate in the clips, but for the record, I also included clips of her from the following:

The Outer Limits (The Joining)
Due South (Starman)
Life Or Something Like It
Traffic
Earth Sea
The Haunting of Lisa
Booty Call
Degree of Guilt
Newsroom (Dinner at Eight)
Stuck
The Void
X-Files (Avatar)
Kung Fu: The Legend Continues (Shaolin Shot)
Millennium (Borrowed Time)
Rent-A-Kid
Danielle Steel's Rembrance
Proof Positive
Black Top
What Kind of Mother Are You

As far as Stargate goes, I included the following clips:
Several behind the scenes clips
Director's series clips
Cut scene from Heroes 2
"Maybourne, you are an idiot" scene from Foothold
"Teal'c reads tabloid" scene from Point of No Return
"Geek!Sam berates herself" scene from Moebius 1
"Geek!Sam gives thumbs up" scene from Moebius 1
"Sam in awe of event horizon" scene from COTG
"Jack shoves Sam through the Gate" scene from COTG
"Sam gets promoted" scene from New Order
"Sam and Jack salute" scene from New Order
"Sam tests duplication device on plane" scene from Foothold
"Anubis!Sam kicks guard in the chest" scene from Lockdown
"Jolinar!Sam whacks Jack in the head" scene from ITLOD
"Pilot!Sam flies F302" scene from Covenant
"Geek!Sam and Geek!Daniel watching video" scene from Moebius 1
"Jolinar!Sam dying" scene from ITLOD
"Sam watching Wormhole Xtreme footage" from Wormhole Xtreme
"Geek!Sam leaves Jack's boat" scene from Moebius 1
"Sam gets snarky with McKay" scene from Redemption 2

There are also several interview clips as well as two clips of Amanda winning awards...

i actually feel ok if not good about what JM has said. i don't think the "just" part of the answer should be read into too much at all. i don't think anything in stargate is nor should it be a "love story" as such, but having elements of a love story is beneficial to making the characters more human, so long as it is done so in a way that does not make the characters seem less believable. and i believe that, with only a few exceptions in 8+ years, they have managed to do this on stargate.

s/j is the only stargate pairing that i have ever really shipped for. even in atlantis i can see good potential between certain characters, but i don't give a monkeys if they get together or not as long as whatever happens is dealt with well.

and as far as i'm aware, AT mentioned in jest that sam and jack talk on the phone. in a very cute way i might add. so i don't think we'll be hearing any phone conversations. although i do really hope that RDA comes back at the end of the season, but only if they do actually acknowlege the ship. even if its only with a look of a brief touch as in the briefing scene in moebius. but i now doubt as to whether he will or not.

so.... while i do hold out some hope for more shippy bits, i'm relatively happy with what we've gotten so far, and i wont hold it against TPTB unless the sink the ship.

anyway, i've been typing for a while now, and i've forgotten what my original point was, so i'm gonna stop now.

I read the spoilers for "Crusade" and thought I'd take a crack at predicting what's gonna happen in season 10 (if there is a season 10) so I was thinking...WHAT??? :p
Hey, it worked for Token!!


Vala is pregnant and she has no idea how she got that way until the Asguard come clean and tell SG-1 that there was some kind of "transporter malfuntion" when they all beamed up to the Prometheus together and that due to the naquida in both Vala's and Sam's blood and due to that "joining thingie" that it caused the beaming accident and the baby Vala is carrying is really Sam's!!
When Sam is pressed about the baby's father and the Asguard find out that it's Jack's they decide to mount a rescue mission to get her because time is swiftly running out for them and their genetic problems and this child could be the answer that they seek.

WHAT??? ....yeah, I'm on vacation this week...ahhh, too much time on my hands...but I'm a shipper, I can dream, can't I??? http://www.thescifiworld.net/img/smilies/stargate/speciaux/love.gif

Ok, here we go.... The interview was done by Darren Sumner.

Question: Tell us your overall impression of season eight and how you wrapped it up. Are you happy with it?

Mallozzi (edited based on what I found interesting:p ) : "You know what? I think actually season eight was one of my favorite seasons. (:S) At the end of every season I always go over and rate the seasons according to my favorites. Season four has always been my favorite. (:D) Season eight comes a close second. I think it goes four, eight, seven, six, five." <snip> "We wrapped up the Goa'uld. I think we wrapped up the Sam/Jack 'shipper' debate..." (:rolleyes: please!)

Martin Gero: "And the Sam/Pete..."

Mallozzi: "Yeah, we wrapped up the Sam/Pete. We put that to bed, thank God. I was never a big fan of the Sam and Pete thing. You know I just find them so clingy and annoying when they were together." ( Too right!)Yup. Debate over.

They're together...and there's no debating that.

Actually it is almost laughable. A virgin pregnancy for Vala the space tramp. So is this child suppose to be the savior of the universe? I guess the ran out of ideas to lift from Star Trek so they have moved on to the bible. I am going to stick with my original thought, Good Grief!

First impressions were pretty ugly, but I found a second viewing eased the pain somewhat. It's not real happy, shipper-wise so far and the spoilers are the usual vagueness so... No.

I'm keeping my hopes up. If the PTB don't sink the ship this season, I'll be happy. I don't expect resolution this season, and probably never, but I am going to keep watching in case there is a teeny hint.

i seem to be on different wavelengths with most shippers tonight. :o

his answer - "Just two people who were drawn together by a mutual attraction that developed over time."

it bothered me because whether it didn't start off as a love story, i see it as one now and wanted him to confirm it. but i guess... i can see what you guys are saying. but i didn't ask joe about their history, i asked him about the here and now of their statis. BUT, developed means a- to grow by degrees into a more advanced or mature state, and b- to increase or expand. but did joe mean the attraction grew or what came of it?... :S too. much. thinking....



sally :)

I, also, am not very happy with this answer. His response makes it sound like Sam and Jack are just two people who grew an attraction over the years. Not an *affection*. An *attraction.* One is emotional, and one is almost purely physical. And as everybody knows, a relationship based solely on physical attraction can never last.

This is our only and best confirmation that after the fishing trip some words and feelings were shared. How much of a relationship they have over the long distance, I don't know.

Y'know, your comment about "ripping off" ST reminded me. I haven't watched any Next Generation eps in years, and I never did enjoy DS9 that much, but isn't what ST called a "Trill" really a nearly carbon-copy of a Goa'uld? Or, actually, more of a Tok'ra? It's so blatant, it's almost scary.

Damn.

Just when I thought they couldn't, wouldn't sink any lower... They go and say *that*. I'm sorry, I know many many family shippers here managed to see that in a positive light, and I really don't wanna take away from that, but...

They have just completely and thoroughly cheapened and degraded what I have long said was one of the best in sci-fi history, ranking right up alongside Han and Leah, and Mulder and Scully... But not anymore. With that little statement, they have as much as said, it didn't mean squat, the feelings aren't that deep at all, and, just as I suppose I should have expected from a show totally and thoroughly geared for the young male demographics, all about sex. [/Rant]
Whoa! How did you get all of that out of that comment? Relax, girl, it's ok. Take this into consideration:
1. JM's purpose is to keep fans interested. To do that, he says things that are sometimes disturbing.
2. JM is a guy! If you asked most guys how they fell in love with their significant other, and they actually agreed to discuss it, they'd probably say something similar. Guys view romance differently than women do. Remember, JM also said he thought it was obvious that they resolved the ship at the end of S8.
Really? I didn't get my big honkin' kiss!

JM is just being JM, and most of the time, that means he's being vague and misleading. I'm just saying that's part of his purpose in being here. He hasn't ruined or degraded anything. He just doesn't express it as poetically as one of us would. Is it brusk and kinda jerky? Yep. But it doesn't change a thing. I like what shelsfc says:

BrenRen, I have to disagree with you, I took something completely different from that answer!

I think that's exactly what it is. He says it started with a mutual attraction - perfectly true, but there's no reason to assume that it was just a sexual attraction. And it has definitly developed over time, into a beautiful, meaningful relationship based on all the things you said - "Respect, honour, duty, faith, trust, admiration and sacrifice."[/font]

It is what it is.....the greatest love story ever in sci-fi.

Ignore JM.

rant time - off topic - other ship parings/other shows



i was reading in an entertainment magazine and they were giving spoilers for upcoming returning shows that i watch. i won't say which shows i'm talking about (as to not spoil for anyone), but...


*in one, i was happy that these two kissed in the last ep of the season. and i found out that when the show returns, they'll just part as friends. *surprise, eh?*

*in the second, i knew these two would never really get together (there's a history that prevents then ending happily ever after), but it still ticks me off that i found them more appealing than the preferred/predestined ship. but they've shipped the pairing i like from the beginning of this show, and then last season, added 'another' for the female... in a *very* similar fashion of the sam/pete introduction... ticked me off.

*one of the two just recently died, so that ruins the whole ship pairing. (and i just got into them)

*these two i'm basically not interested in at all, but my mom and sis are. and i read that they're going to have them get together eventually (the writer guesses), but until then, they're going to give 'others' for both of them. *joy. not*

*the last one ticked me off the most, because it was the one i was really interested in. this show is new, and they're shipping two guys for this one girl. but we know the girl's heart belongs to the real hero of this story. and i really like them together and individually. so when i read last night that they're not going to have them get together (at least this upcoming season), but that they're giving a love interest for the guy... and that the actress playing the girl doesn't want to be in this guy's shadow, so is happy to not have this ship played (right now?)....


suffice it to say, shippers, stargate's not the only one to string their shipper fans along. and torture them with 'others'. or lead them on with hoped-for resolutions. man, talk about cliche'...

Trupi I though Don did not know when RDA would be appearing again?Even if RDA does return for the Season finale it does not sound like he will have much to do thanks to Vala.Unless RDA returns for the second half of the Season finale.I really hope we see RDA because Season 10 is a long way off.I would hate to have to wait for Season 10 even if RDA is in the first episode of the Season.The way I'am feeling I really want to skip the rest of Season 9 but I will probably watch the rest of Season 9.I'am a glutton for punishment.

BrenRen, I have to disagree with you, I took something completely different from that answer!


JM - "Just two people who were drawn together by a mutual attraction that developed over time."

I think that's exactly what it is. He says it started with a mutual attraction - perfectly true, but there's no reason to assume that it was just a sexual attraction. And it has definitly developed over time, into a beautiful, meaningful relationship based on all the things you said - "Respect, honour, duty, faith, trust, admiration and sacrifice."

see, at first, i saw it in the 'less than' light, but my mom and another shipper friend didn't.

i wanted joe to come right out and say it's a love story. and i also got confused by the mutual attraction that developed over time line. was he saying the attraction developed over time (i thought it was there from the beginning), or that it developed over time into something deeper?... this is what happens when you're used to deciphering someones answers... you do it so much that you can't read what's in front of you.

i'm now taking this as a 'more than' instead of a less, because i'm seeing it as it developed into something more over time.

I notice that JM didn't say that they are "just attracted to one another". He said they are "drawn together". I like that! It means they can't help themselves! They have been trying for 8 years to resist the urge to be completely together. What is a love story anyway? To me, it is when two people are "drawn" together, who overcome obstacles to eventually be together.

hmmm.... i like this! :D

you guys are giving me ideas and helping to heal my heart.

Yes, it might seem like they have ripped off Star Trek but Star Trek: Voyager ripped off Stargate. The episode 'Beneath the Surface' to be exact.

In OT but good news, Jang-Geum and Sir Min ended up together! They even had a daughter! This story line was eerily like Sam and Jack! The King died though.At least one of my ships worked out. That is three out of... never mind.

And it has definitly developed over time, into a beautiful, meaningful relationship based on all the things you said - "Respect, honour, duty, faith, trust, admiration and sacrifice."
Uh huh - just look at the COG scene - if that wasn't sexual attraction I don't know what was. And that's how it all started. Nothing wrong with a good dose of lust :D Then, over time, it grew into all the things Bren said. That's how my relationship with my hubby started - I lusted the pants off him - but it only took us a couple of months, not 9 years for the rest :p

And Trupi - it's not just italian men that like to wind us up - it's ALL MEN! Although if you follow hubby's family tree back far enough, it all started in Sicily ...... :eek: Maybe you're right! :p

As for Crusade I see I'm not the only one having flashbacks to the Peacekeeper Wars I thought that was well OTT - although I did find the whole water birth scene absolutely hysterical. I know Stargate like to do their little homages to shows / movies past that they like or that the actors have been in - and usually they are really subtle or really funny. This one just makes me want to cringe. Actually, I think it makes me want to http://smileys.smileycentral.com/cat/10/10_2_10.gif (don't want to leave a mess for you all to have to clear up ;) )

Everyone is absolutely entitled to their own view. I'd be the last person to blast anyone for disagreeing with me... I'm too used to being disagreed with to let it bother me anymore. Getting older and wiser also comes with thicker skin.

Besides, discussion isn't that interesting when everyone agrees.... then all you get to read is page after page of "me too!"... Not much fun there!

Well...after mulling over my thoughts...I have come to a conclusion.

I'm not watching season nine...and I may not watch Atlantis

I am through with Stargate on TV...But I will remain active in the Stargate Fandom...because the people I've met here and on other forums and mailing lists have to be the NICEST, MOST INTELLIGENT, FUNNY AND WITTY PEOPLE that TPTB should tank for watching their show...It shouldn't be us thanking them...it should be the other way about.

So...thank you to the actors who have all thanked us for our support...but it's be nice if it was reciprocated.

Voyager could have ripped off Stargate. If you just go by air date, then yes Beneath the surface aired 6 months before Workforce. I guess it depends on which script was written first.

Beneath the surface air date is 9/1/00
Workforce I and II air date 2/21/01 and 2/28/01.

Whoa! How did you get all of that out of that comment? Relax, girl, it's ok. Take this into consideration:

1. JM's purpose is to keep fans interested. To do that, he says things that are sometimes disturbing.

JM is also the only writer in the SG1 camp who has remained consistantly supportive of the Ship, both in interviews, and in the way it carries out in the eps he's written. For that alone, I'm willing to cut *him* some slack... But not certain *other* writers!!!! <coough-cough-hackupalung-RCC-cough-coough>

All that being said, JM is also King of Vaguenessness, he delights in the little mind-games of spoiler-teasers, and generally speaking, he's been pretty good at it. He's also the only SG1 *Official* to offer the Shippers any crumbs of reassurance.

As I said in a post yesterday, my reaction wasn't strictly related to the comment JM made. I've got a mind like a steel sieve, and what doesn't slip through the holes stay stuck for-ever. I can recall nearly verbatim, almost anything I've ever read, especially when it comes to my favorite programs. Also.. my reaction was just as heavily influenced by the strong meds du jour I'm on.


2. JM is a guy! If you asked most guys how they fell in love with their significant other, and they actually agreed to discuss it, they'd probably say something similar. Guys view romance differently than women do. Remember, JM also said he thought it was obvious that they resolved the ship at the end of S8.

Then again, I've known some men who are bigger softies and suckers for the romance than just about anyone! Well, except for me! I'll find Ship everywhere! I watched Full House for the Jesse Rebecca Ship! (I was also almost the same age as the eldest daughter in the series...)





Really? I didn't get my big honkin' kiss!

JM is just being JM, and most of the time, that means he's being vague and misleading. I'm just saying that's part of his purpose in being here. He hasn't ruined or degraded anything. He just doesn't express it as poetically as one of us would. Is it brusk and kinda jerky? Yep. But it doesn't change a thing. I like what shelsfc says:

It is what it is.....the greatest love story ever in sci-fi.

Ignore JM.


It *was* the greatest love story on tv. Now... it's the greatest waste of opportunities in a scifi love story... Ahem, mutual attraction the developed over time...

Hey guys,

If any of you are in doubt about Sam/Jack being "together" at all, remember to keep in mind that we tend to compartmentalize around here sometimes and look at current moments as opposed to the bigger picture. If we step back a bit, we see:

1. Over the years, we've heard Joe say that he'd like to see Sam and Jack together when all is said and done.

2. This year, we saw an interview with Amanda where she answered a fan question (regarding Sam and Jack in Season 9) by saying that Robert Cooper had come up with an ingenious way of being vague non/committal about it. And that as time progressed: "We'll see".

2b. Well, if that's true then also keep in mind that Joe just made a comment on his board here saying that the "not exactly" line was inserted by Robert Cooper into the script of EDM. Ingenious, indeed! :D

3. We also have Joe mentioning that he didn't think the end of Threads was vague at all with respect to Sam and Jack. (Neither did I, frankly, but that's a whole 'nother story!)


I also recently discovered annunaki, whoever he/she is.....and really like the stories he/she writes. Very nice use of phrasing and imagery.Anunnaki's fanfic address is:http://www.fanfiction.net/u/779316/

This Will Be
Recorded by Natalie Cole

This will be an everlasting love
This will be the one I've waited for
This will be the first time anyone has loved me

I'm so glad you found me in time
And I'm so glad that you rectified my mind
This will be an everlasting love for me

Loving you is some kind of wonderful
Because you've shown me just how much you care
You've given me the thrill of a lifetime
And made me believe you've got more thrills to spare

This will be an everlasting love (Oh yes it will now)
You've brought a lot of sunshine into my life
You filled me with happiness I never knew
You gave me more joy than I ever dreamed of
And no one, no one can take the place of you

This will be
You and me
Yessirree eternally
Hugging and squeezing and kissing and pleasing
Together forever through rain and whatever
Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah
You and me
So long as I'm living true love I'll be giving
To you I'll be saving 'cause you're so deserving
Hey you're so deserving
You're so deserving
Yeah Yeah Yeah Oh...
Love Love Love Love...
From now on, From now on, From now on, From now on...

UhSir and BrenRen and minigeek,

Cheering up is just what we need!! I'm home sick today and feeling kinda yucky. I just watched 2010 and I was both stunned and blue over the episode. Stunned because it is a tightly woven script that shows our heroes, Jack, Sam, Daniel, and Teal'c, with Janet's aid, at their finest. Stepping up to the plate together to do right!! Not to mention the strong undercurrent of Sam and Jack tension over the Aschen plot that severed their ties. Blue? That this level of story plot and dialogue are not yet (I'll give the writers a chance) evident in Season 9.

Now my contribution to the "let's cheer up" posts. I am a huge Anita Baker fan. When I heard this yesterday, I knew I had to share the lyrics. I see this from Sam's POV. I highlighted the words that some may worry/wonder about not to mention whatever is going on in the minds of TPTB. In my Shippy world, Sam and Jack are so past doubts and well into a relationship.

My story and I'm sticking to it!!! ;)


Giving You The Best That I Got
Anita Baker
Writers: Anita Baker, Skip Scarborough & Randy Holland

Giving You The Best That I Got

Ain't there something I can give you
In exchange for everything you give to me
Read my mind and make me feel just fine
When I think my peace of mind is out
of reach

The scales are sometimes unbalanced
And you bear the weight of all that has to be
I hope you see that you can lean on me
And together we can calm a stormy sea

We love so strong and so unselfishly
And I tell you now that I made a vow
I'm giving you the best that I got, baby
Yes I tell you now, that I made a vow
I'm giving you the best that I got, honey

Everybody's got opinions
'Bout the way they think our story's gonna end
Some folks feel it's just a superficial thrill
Everybody's gonna have to think again

We love so strong and so unselfishly
They don't bother me so I'm gonna keep on
Giving you the best that I got, baby
They don't bother me, said I'm gonna keep on
Giving you the best that I got, listen baby

Somebody understands me
Somebody gave his heart to me
I stumbled my whole life long
Always on my own, now I'm home

My weary mind is rested
And I feel as if my home is in your arms
Fears are all gone, I like the sound of your song
And I think I want to sing it forever

We love so strong and so unselfishly
And I made a vow so I tell you now
I'm giving you the best that I got, baby
I bet everything on my wedding ring
I'm giving you the best that I got,
givin' it to you baby

A friend of mine asked if I would post this (very old) rant I had back in June on the samandjack listserver. It's a shipper rant regarding fan reactions to the season eight episode of "THREADS". So if you cannot stomach the thought of Sam and Jack in a romantic relationship, please read no further.

At best, you'd end up smoking through your ears, and at worst, you might end up skulking in my back yard with a bag of rotton vegetables or an effigee with my name on it and a cushion filled with sticking-pins ... <gulp> ... either way, I implore you, PLEASE, turn back now.

Cheers. :)

All right then. Here it is. My little temper-tantrum. With respect to fan speculation after the airing of "Threads".

--------------
From June 2005
---------------


Apologies for what may constitute the great deal of poor grammar and spelling I'm about to inflict on you all. I'm venting. But I mean no disrespect to anyone whose personal opinions may be trod upon during the course of this post.

SPOILER SPACE (Threads/Season Nine)
......
......
......
......
......
......
......
......
......
......
......
......
......
......
......
......
......
......
......

So the obvious problem with season nine ('shipper-wise') is that there isn't going to be any on-camera nookie between Sam Carter andJack O'Neill.

Quick, stop the presses! :eek:

But before we do that, can someone please explain to me where the great mystery is? I don't get it. Truly, I don't. There's so much hand-wringing over the potential 'non-future' of Sam and Jack, romantically, I'm just about ready to switch off my PC and check my glasses (well, I would if I wore glasses), because I don't think I've been watching the same "Stargate SG-1" series that some of you have. (I suppose that's possible, I do live in Canada, and the satellite reception in my igloo just isn't what it used to be since my polar bear died and fell over onto my... well, never mind).

Seriously... Sam and Jack.

I don't see where there's room for doubt. Yet there's a unified (and horrified) gasp building slowly in the corners of 'shipperdom' over the possible notion that Carter might end up either a) romantically involved with someone else--cue "Love Interest X", or, b) become completely estranged from her feelings because of Jack's absence this year. Hence the terror in trembling fingers hovering over keyboards all over the globe.

Therefore I must ask: What part Sam's character-arcduring "Threads" was vague?

Let's break this down.

I think everyone's essentially resigned themselves to the concept that regardless of the way canon plays out this year, there's not going to be a torrid on-screen love-affair between Sam and Jack, but the reason for that has more to do with cast than it does with character. We're aware that Rick's physically not going to be there; hence Jack won't be around to 'play' with. On screen, at least.

He's not dead. He's just... elsewhere. That doesn't mean that Sam is simply going to 'move on' from the emotional epiphany she had in "Threads". If you didn't happen to notice that she had anemotional epiphany in "Threads", then please forgive me forwondering ... what show were you watching?

Sam and Jack went through eight years of character development to get to the point they ended up in with "Threads". To me it's been absolutely obvious from the moment that episode wrapped. Sam and Jack had finally, unequivocally, decided to explore a romantic relationship together. It won't be on-camera. It can't be. And it won't be obvious or plot-centric to the season nine narrative. I think most people who consider themselves 'shippers' can live with the fact that it'll have to be hinted at and alluded to betweenr ousing strains of "Pharoah Pharoah let my Jaffa Go!" and "Kiss me Claudia!", but it'll still be there if you're hoping to see it. Just open those beautiful eyes and watch.

It would be disrespectful to both the O'Neill and the Carter character-arcs (especially the Sam Carter arc) if they did anything else with her (romantically) at this point. They built and built along those lines (for eight years), then culminated with "Threads", and all of a sudden--what? Dropped the ball? No way.

If there was nothing further to Sam and Jack; if their feelings towards one another and their 'relationship' was to be terminated with the end of season eight, then the dialogue and scenes which took place during "Threads" would not have been written into canon. That episode would not have taken place in the manner in which it did. The whole idea behind "Threads" was to clear a path for the big changes coming up in season nine (providing season nine was approved). It was to 'tie up' (threads?!) eight years of 'loose ends' (threads?!), in such a way as to leave those storylines either completed or at a crossroad to a new beginning.

Sam and Jack love one another. That's never been in question. We know it. The writers, the producers, everyone involved in the creative on the show will admit to that. It's been stated unequivocably. And "Threads" was a tribute to those pent-up emotions for the two of them.

They scripted whole scenes around that single premise. They wrote in Carter's ambivalence and apprehension surrounding her fiancé. Her uneasiness and embarrassment with him was palpable during the scene where he meets Jacob for the first time. That wasn't adlib, that was directed.

Sam shows up at Jack's house because she's terrified she's making a mistake and she wants to tell him (once and for all) how she feels.

Kerry then proceeds to break up with Jack over his feelings for Sam. Seeing as how that might be too vague, she goes on to mention that she thinks it's obvious how he feels about Sam and that she thinks it's a big mistake if "rules and regulations" are the only thing keeping he and Carter apart.

We may not be convinced yet. So let's go on...

In preceding scene, Jacob said the exact same words to Sam that Kerry would later use.
Jacob: "Don't let rules stand in your way."
Kerry: "Is the Airforce the only reason the two of you aren't together? Rules and regulations?"Coincidences like that happen in real-life, they don't happen in scripts. There's a sledgehammer here. It's big. Huge. Colossal. But just in case there might still be any room whatsoever for doubt, they added even more.

Sam breaks up with Pete.

Again, the might be too vague, so again, he uses the exact same phrasing that Jacob used in a previous scene
Jacob: "You can still have everything that you want."
Pete: "Ihope you get what you want..."Gee. I wonder what that means?

Hmm...

OW! Hey, that hammer really hurts! :D

But wait. There's more! No. Really.

Carter's been refusing O'Neill's invitations to his cabin for eight long years. The reason for that is so long-lived and obvious, it's moot. But suddenly [i](in the end of "Threads") she accepts! (Wow, neat episode, huh?).

Let's step back for a minute and pretend we're not fans of Stargate. Let's pretend we actually wrote the episode "Threads". Why did we (the writers of "Threads") write all that Sam Carter / Jack O'Neill sub-plot in? It didn't have much to do with the "Free Jaffa" plot, or Anubis' "Grand Design". What was the point? We'd have to be first-class dopes if we scripted all that into a 90-Minute special length presentation, just because we were planning on turning Sam Carter back into the alien love-interest of the week. Or (oh, say...) bringing Narim or even Orlin back so that Sam might fall madly in love with either of them.

Eight years of UST. That's what "Threads" was about for the Sam and Jack subplot. We never saw so much of their 'relationship' discussed in canon as we did during that single episode. At no point were we ever given to understand that they intended to go their separate ways thereafter. Quite the contrary, given the "fishing moment" we saw in the end.

Why not? If they're not going to explore being together in an 'off-camera' world as season nine progresses, why not end "Threads" with, say, a tearful, yet beautiful marriage for Carter to her much loved, erstwhile fiancé? <ducking> What difference would it make to season nine's "action-rock-em-sock-em" canon if Sam was married to Pete? Not much. But if certainly would make a difference to Sam's character arc. And the fact that she's been in love with Jack for half a decade at least. The writers/producers knew that, and wanted to be respctful to her character. Hence the plot we actually saw.

And at the end of it all (or the beginning, as the case may be!) why would "Threads" open with an entire montage (half of which was dedicated to Sam/Jack moments throughout the years) intermingled with several poignant scenes where we see her restless and uncomfortable about her upcoming 'marriage'? Could that be a strange coincidence as well?

Hmm...

OW!! Again with the hammer! Stop that! :D

Does Carter have to crawl out of a pentagon supply closet, with tousled hair and an "I JUST DID JACK" t-shirt on for the message to be clearer? (Okay, yes, I'd like to see that t-shirt, too... but that's hardly the point).

What is there not to get? I'm asking here, I really, truly am. Of course, as irreverent as parts of this post were, I harbor no enmity towards anyone who really does believe the 'shipper' group is SOL. I'm just astounded, quite frankly.

I'll crawl back into my igloo now. We're making blue-raspberry kitchen-tiles out of Jello mix ... can't miss that.

I'm keeping my hopes up. If the PTB don't sink the ship this season, I'll be happy. I don't expect resolution this season, and probably never, but I am going to keep watching in case there is a teeny hint.
I hope S9 is that way for me too. I've just re-watched S8 on Sky One (first time since it aired originally) and I have to say I've enjoyed it a lot more than I did the first time around. Some parts I'll always dislike, but overall, I did like the season. I even liked Moebius this time around!

This season I'm all prepared to hate it the first time round, then enjoy it when I see the repeats. :rolleyes:

Wait a minute . . . . We can't have any resolution to the ship - kissing, weddings, whatever - because it's too soap-opera-ish, yet they can write in a mysterious pregnancy for Vala????

This makes no sense whatsoever!!!!!

But consider, this perfectly fits into the realm of pseudo religion and sci-fi that is Stargate :)

Clutching at straws is the phrase that springs to mind. I hope I'm gonna be pleasantly surprised, but I'm not holding out much hope.

wow i'm gone for several months and i miss all the excitement...though i do have something to say about the ship...during last weeks eppy (i think, but times been all screwy with me lately) i'm thinking it was pretty obvious who Sam was referring to when she said "not exactly" to the question of whether she was single or not...im fairly sure that's already been addressed...but yeah anyway. *hides in her cabin*

Ohh.. this was talked about lots! And I think everyone came to conclusion ...(or hoped most desperately :p ) that she was talking about Jack.
And honestly... who else could she mean.. ;) :D But read back over the last few posts.. (you may need to go back a bit, because there is a lot) ..and read what everyones opinions are

For me, I know that Jack and Sam are together meaning that they won't get involved with other people because they are accepting the fact that they are involved with each other; the problem I have is after waiting 8+ years this is all we get? Okay, okay a lot of changes in Season 9 and an especially big one RDA not a regular anymore (hard to type) and as shippers we wait for the proverbial crumb to be tossed our way in Season 9 that will keep our hope flames lit; but come on Vala pregnant!!!!!!!! How come whenever we want romantic scenes between Jack and Sam it is considered "soap operaish" but yet we can have romantic scenes between Sam and Pete, Teal'c and Ishta, and our current two some Daniel and Vala and that is considered sci-fi storytelling????? I know it is all a game with TPTB they knew by not giving us a big honkin kiss that we would still want more, and they are right. The fact that Jack and Sam are together is great and about time, but the fact that we didn't get to SEE any of it is very disturbing; it would be like watching our team heading out to defeat the System Lords for the last and final time but instead of finding out what happens the show ends and at the beginning of the next episode we learn through Daniel that the team has since broken up but that we did win and everything is fine, totally unfulfilling. We know the key parts, we won, but we didn't get to witness it for ourselves and go through the emotions so therefore maybe it didn't happen.

I know for myself that whenever I watch any of Marimba's or Caty's videos I see and feel the potential and yes I KNOW that they are together but somehow ??????????

For those of you who are satisfied with Threads being the resolution, more power to you; but I want more; but will we get it?? that is where the eternal flame of hope keeps burning.

And that is what the TPTB are counting on the "eternal flame of hope". It keeps us J/S shippers watching the show, hoping we will finally get a proper resolution.

Is this a protected thread, or can non-Jack/Sam shippers give their side of things?

I'd love to say the more the merrier, myself. But I think the purpose of this thread would quickly end up obscurred by a battle over the fundamental (and age-old) disagreement between shippers and non shippers.

That's one of the reasons I suggested non shippers might wish to skip this thread entirely. Because it isn't about the fundamental argument of whether Sam and Jack love one another (I've put that forth as a given); it's about which moments during THREADS can effectively (and correctly) be interpereted by shippers as canon acknowledgement of a pending exploratory relationship for Sam and Jack (after the episode completed).

I'm certain there are a lot of very logical points of view vis-a-vis the "non-shipper" sect regarding how to alternately interperet the episodic canon of "Threads", but I don't think this thread is a great place for those points.

If you're a shipper, and you disagree with me, then by all means, I'm happy to discuss that. But if you're not a shipper--you'd fundamentally disagree with me, and that I'm not very keen on 'having out', so to speak. I know where it would end up, so I'd rather skip the pre-amble and agree to disagree in advance.

Really. I'm scared of the flame war. Scared like a little girl on Neetu... :eek:

No, I don't see anything romantic. I'm surprised that Sam is not calling by rank or last name when on duty. Well, Mitchell has been abducted so Sam is in charge. Nice! That she's in charge.

Babylon Sam had a minor role following her take-charge scene after Mitchell's abduction. She sounded good but no time to develop her leadership ability in this episode. This was Mitchell's showcase tonight. I like Mitchell. I'm a little annoyed with Dr. Lam and General Landry's dynamic. Daughter-Father conflicts. She was rather pouty when General Landry gave her an order to call him when the prisoner awakened. Sure she's not in the military but there is something called professional courtesy. Why is there a civilian CMO anyway? All in all this was a ZERO Ship night!

I usually come on this thread after a new show airs to see what you guys thought of it; and by the small responses there are tonight I think we all feel pretty much the same. I thought with Sams return somehow the episodes would be better, but I guess the idea is that she would have to be in the episode and tonight it felt like she wasn't; actually I'm not sure what I got out of the episode. What can I say I MISS JACK AND SAM (did I say that out loud).

I miss the S/J that we got in past seasons. Even if it was just them passing in the halls...

As for this season, I'm not really complaining about Sam / Amanda's lack of screen time. You can still see her cute little chipmunk cheeks in 'Babylon' - I think she's taking it easy and TPTB are letting her. I mean how many years had she tried for a baby before little Olivia was born?

I don't think any "ship" is being implied. But they're the same rank, so there's no need for "sir" or "ma'am." Why she didn't say "Mitchell" or "Cam", I don't know.

I agree with your take on this, nell. I prefer to think that AT is still easing back into the work routine. I bet she’ll be a lot more prominent in the second half of the season. Except I still don’t really care that much if they find Mitchell or not. I’m warming up to that Jack (a la Bobby Ewing) in the shower scene telling us this has all been a dream!

I did like it when Mitchell was talking to the Sonan leader about the Ori and said, “Your history sustained you all these years. Don’t give up your history for a bag of magic tricks.”

I have no doubt there is no Ship implied.IMO when Sam and Jack finally get together and we all see it then TPTB can have Sam and Cameron call each other by there first Names all they want.I think my new policy will be to check on Gateworld after the 8:00 SG-1 episode and if there is no mention of Sam and Jack Ship I will not watch the 11:00 episode.

Bye suekay and good luck!

As for today's episode, I watched about twenty minutes then turned on Ghost Ship (good movie! But it is rated R.) I wanted to see Stargate, not 'The Cameron Mitchell show'.
I too agree that it is weird that Sam and Cam call each other by their first names. But so did Sam and Janet. In the field though it should be last names.
And SAM should be in command!!!
In the Stargate magazine, they said that they would 'try' to include all four team members in every episode. (My thought was that is big of them concidering you know...it is an four-star-cast show!!)

I haven't been able to do a catch up read yet so in anticipation of when I do -

Congrats to all with posting milestones (the rate people post on here there's got to be some of those since I was here last!)

Happy Birthday LOL4JACK and ses110!! (I couldn't miss the last few colourful posts!) and to all who have celebrated in the last few weeks.

Hope last nights episode gave cause for some shipper smiles - only 5 weeks until S9 in the UK!!

Am on holiday now so should actually be able to pull up a comfy chair and spend some time here over the next few days - finally!! :D

I agree, I don't think any ship is implied based on the simple fact that they're both military officers in the same command and on the same team. I mean, isn't that one of the reasons that was preventing Sam and Jack forming a romantic relationships. TPTB would have to be complete hyprocrits to form a ship for Cam/Sam (by the way, how lame does that sound anyway) after putting Sam and Jack through utter angst for eight seasons.

Shipper Cookies?! Did someone say Shipper Cookies?!!!!

So glad you asked.....You did ask didn't you?!

Ship Nana's Psycho Shipper Cookies - which when dipped in the beverage of your choice allows all inhibitions to simply melt away!

Mala’s Thunk Shipper Cookie – These shipper cookies, when eaten while looking at Mala’s genius creations of photos and other pictures, will allow shippers to thunk for the character of their choice (mostly RDA) and realize why they love Sam and Jack. I thunk, therefore I am!

mei mei's Special Happy Pill Shipper Cookie - They are made from the combined ingredients of mei mei's medicine cabinet. It allows shippers to be in a drugged induced haze to prevent them from losing their minds!

Pale Green Shipper Cookie - used for medicinal purposes only by sick shippers - this cookie is full of Shipper Love and Ship Nana's chicken soup

Pink Shipper Cookies - Increases Creativity and Brain Power for Shipping

(take the red pill, Neo-shippers)

Blue Shipper Cookies - Dreamy Shipper Bliss

Purple Shipper Cookies - Warm and Fuzzy Shipping

Orange Shipper Cookies - Disoriented Shipping

Chocolate Shipper Cookies - Rich and Luscious Shipping (especially when served warm - good for when nothing else will do) Also, for stocking up while on extended absenses from S/J Thread.

Gray Shipper Cookies - Snarkiness Shipper Cookie

Lime Shipper Cookies - gives the illusion of Shipper Greatness. They allow the Shipper to dream really BIG!!!!!!

Naquadah Enhanced Anti-Ranting Shipper Cookies – If you have to eat these Shipper Cookies you are so desperate that you probably won't care what they are for.
P.S. - Disclaimer - Since these Shipper Cookies are probably radioactive please take the appropriate precautions when handling.

Rosy Shipper Cookies - wipes out the memories of bad spoilers and desolves the desire to read spoilers

SUBLIMINAL Shipper Cookies – Makes TPTB believe that Ship was their idea

Turquoise Shipper Cookies - which are the super duper magnificent spectacular love enhanced shipper cookies

Motion Sickeness Shipper Cookies - when eaten prevents motion sickness from TPTB shipper rollercoaster ride.

Margarita shipper cookie. It works on drowning your sorrows, or celebrating your shipper glee. :D

EVERY COLOR SHIPPER COOKIE - which erases shipper memories of all bad spoilers, episodes, and character appearances that depress shippers and replaces them with positive Sam/Jack memories. This shipper cookie was created in Honor of the 2nd ANNUAL CELEBRATION! ITS SHIP DAY JULY 28TH, 2004. It is guaranteed to keep all shippers in only the best shipper mood.

HALLELUIAH OUR SHIP HAS COME IN SHIPPER COOKIE – this is a WEDDING WHITE shipper cookie and is eaten in joyful celebration when Sam and Jack finally admit their feelings to one another and decide that they should be together.

and the all time favorite:

YELLOW SHIPPER COOKIES – (HWMS)


I just thought that the family might need a refresher list, due to the CURRENT-LACK-OF-S/J-SHIP-IN-SEASON-9!!!
Feel free to overindulge with the beverage of your choice.

Now where did I put that S/J fanfic I was reading?

Thanks Rogue.I just got the Lost Season 1 DVD yesterday and I hope to watch a couple of episodes tonight.I hear there is some good Ship on Lost.I think since TPTB are picking and chosing which episodes have Ship,I will just pick and chose which SG-1 episodes to watch.I think from now on with my TV Shows I'am not going to be such a Loyal viewer unless I get what I want from the Show.I think one good thing about Lost is that there will probably be very little filler episodes.IMO the last couple of Years of SG-1 there have been to many filler episodes and we had to wait until the last part of the Season for the good episodes.We may not even get that many good episodes towards the end this Year if RDA is not going to appear.

With that in mind, I'd like to order a couple dozen more of these:
Pale Green Shipper Cookie - used for medicinal purposes only by sick shippers - this cookie is full of Shipper Love and Ship Nana's chicken soup

They really do the trick, and much more pleasurable side-effects than the nasty syrup the doc gave me!

Um, just checking in!! Hello, hello??!! Well, I just bought Seasons 1 and 4 on a 25% off sale at Best Buy in the D.C. area!!! I purchased Season 7 a couple of weeks ago at full price and they credited me for the sale price. So, cost is $32.99 each. Not bad, I think. Don't tell me if you got it cheaper!!! I'm basking in my savings' savvy purchase tonight!!! Seriously, if you got it cheaper that is terrific!!

Although I feel a little funny spending $100 on DVDs. My little hobby began with watching the show, reading fanfics, posting on the forum, videotaping the shows, writing a fanfic or two, Beta-ing for a Ship writer, buying one Stargate magazine, buying Sally Reeve's A Matter of Honor from the U.K.(no, I ordered it not fly over to buy it, hee, hee!!), and now I have dropped $100 within two weeks on DVDs. Hmmm, now that I reflect on this I am making a logical progression in developing my hobby. Actually, my hubby encouraged me to buy the DVDs. So, maybe I shouldn't feel funny about spending that amount of money but pleased and happy that I have a fun and pleasurable activity. OK, I'm gonna rip the shrink wrap off all those boxed sets and have a whole lotta Ship viewing!!!!!!!!!!

I hope this comes across the right way cause I know alot of you have spent lots of money especially for conventions. I'm just pondering my investment in The Ship. The creative ways have been fabulous for me. The socializing is dear to me. So, maybe I'm just adjusting to the cost of a hobby.

So, how have any of you developed your Shippy hobby??? What do you enjoy the best about your hobby? Writing? Graphics arts? Etc. Did you discover a talent or interest that you did not expect? :p ;)

Please don't tell me I'm off topic because this is about the Whys and Whats of how we Ship. ;)

I threw myself into Stargate after it jumped from Showtime to syndication and SciFi channel. I taped every episode even though I watched it, bought the illustrated companions and began my DVD collection. What really fueled all of that was reading fan fiction actually.

On a dare I was challenged to write a story and submit it to see what would happen - I did and now 50+ stories later I own every season out, I have all of the magazines and books that come out in the US (I'm trying to figure out a way to snag some of the UK books), various calendars that I got for Christmas and such (one of which is right here at my desk), an ever growing fan fiction portfolio and in the past month I've begun doing some manips and such.

Not to mention the websites I run or co-run, which include two YahooGroups, two RPGs and my official site.

Hi folks, sg1fanintn pointed me over here. Talk about a happy-go-lucky group! Last night, one of my favourite Sam/Jack fanfiction authors wrote en episode insert for Babylon that I think many of you might love to read (based on some of the sad posts I see in the last two pages here).

I'm sure most of you already know of Kate McKay, the story is called "The Rest of Babylon" and I highly recommend it after yesterday's episode. It's everything we didn't get to see last night...

i need to vent, so please bear with me. this vent talks about chimera.

i just got the new illustrated companion book for seasons 7 and 8, and of course, i go and read the ship related and controversial eps first. and i started with chimera.

:( :( :(

i won't give you details, other than amanda went on and on and on and on about how wonderful it was to film the makeout-against-the-wall scene with pete/david. by the time i was done, i wanted to cry.

shippers, don't buy this book. save yourselves the heartbreak.

and i can't believe i'm about to say this, and i know i'm going to be slammed by my sam friends on the sam thread, but... shame on you, amanda. if you were reading this... i'm really going to have to leave now, because i want to cry.

thank you.

i'm now in the process of returning this book. i won't pay out my hard earned money to be treated this unbiasly.

i really can't tell you how much this broke my heart. i wasn't that happy with the two previous books 'attitude' concerning ship, but this one i was sooooo excited to get because there were some awesome ship eps to read about. and not one of them were shippy - with chimera and affinity being torture sessions. all this was to me was a pro sam/pete and anti sam/jack experience. every ep that should have high-lighted s/j did not. (there isn't even a face to express what i'm feeling right now)

how much crap can any fan take before they just pack it in and quit, you know? god... i really want to cry.

(((((((((((((((((((((Sally)))))))))))))))))))))

I feel your pain, honey! As for how much one can take... I managed to get throughseason eight... but the overall disappointment sank in hard over the summer... and I did pack it in.

I haven't bothered watching but a coupld eps of season nine, and it just never grabbed me like The Original SG1. Add to that the obvious lack of Ship, the main reason I've been tuning in for the last eight years... and this disgruntled viewer has given up. I've moved on, found a much more fullfilling Ship with an infinitely smarter production team holding the reins. Anyone here (besides Poz, who turned me onto it in the first place; Thanks a gazzillion, my friend!) watch Gilmore Girls? Now *that's* Ship done RIGHT.

But... as I've said before, I still adore Sam & Jack... the first four seasons of their lovestory were truly wonderful, and have given me more than plenty material to manipulate into even shippier directions thanx to the wonderful world of fanfic... And the stories for the second half were still plenty interesting, and left plenty of margins of error to *fix* in fic...

Once more, I say, Thank God for FanFic. It makes being a Shipper truly worth the time and emotional investments involved in such obsessions! ;)

Hi everyone! I have been a lurker in these threads forever and finally decided to come out of my hiding place. :) I am still in Stargate withdrawal...well I mean Sam/Jack withdrawal. As those know ;) came out of it briefly a couple weeks back but then it got worse! So anyway couldnt stand the wait for more SJ so decided to preorder season 8. Got 1 day shipping to. 1/3 the price of the dang DVD for it! Oh well.

Anyway so I know will enjoy chating with you all...or in otherwords watching you guys chat. :o Well have to go back to the ever present and OH SO WONDERFUL world of *drums please!* Homework...Aghh! Stop thowing tomatos! College is so much worse then High School....yea getting OT.

So will get out of all your hairs now *shuffles away* *curtains fall* *pokes head out of curtains* Forgot to add RDA withdrawal to! :( ...... :eek: You had to put the tomato on my face didnt ya? HMM? HMM?! *pokes head out of view*

i can't believe i'm about to say this, and i know i'm going to be slammed by my sam friends on the sam thread, but... shame on you, amanda. if you were reading this... i'm really going to have to leave now, because i want to cry. Oh, Sally. Don't cry sweetie.

You know what it is? Authors like that take the quotes they feel make their point for them. It's not a very balanced perspective sometimes.

But Amanda's not anti-Sam/Jack. She's anti-Sam/Weakness. And she can sound a bit mercurial when she's quoted in books and articles sometimes. I really think it's just the way the authors there are getting their own points across.

The fact is, Amanda and Rick as actors have incredible chemistry on-screen (and off!). When you cast for a long-term drama, you can't ask for better than that, and neither one of them would ever disparage the 'shipper' sect of their fans, because they know--they're the ones who made the whole thing happen in the first place.

I found a great post by a German fan right here on these boards. He tirelessly transcribed from the REGION 2 (SEASON EIGHT DVD) AUDIO COMMENTARY -- including some "PTB" POV. Some of it even highlights the chemistry between Amanda and Richard, which translated into Sam and Jack over the years. The original post is here:

http://forum.gateworld.net/showthread.php?p=4488194#post4488194

...But I'll quote from it for you anyway. Hopefully we'll get that smile back on your face.

Read what Peter (DeLuise) says about Amanda and Rick towards the end of Moebius...

[snip]

WW = Will Waring (director, camera)
PDL = Peter DeLuise (director, writer)
GJ = Gary Jones (actor, director)

(811 Audio Commentary "Gemini" by Will Waring (WW, Director))
(17min - RepliCarter meets O'Neill in the base and is ordered to shoot
him in her vision)
WW: "But she [RepliCarter] can't just shoot Jack - because she loves
him..."


(33min - Alt. Carter and Alt. O'Neill just got into the PJ [PuddleJumper])
PDL: "This is a fun scene because they're starting to have feelings for each other because no matter what timeline, they would be sort of be drawn to each other. Did you ever notice that? Did you ever notice
how Amanda will flirt with you like heavily, and then when Richard
comes into the room, it just stops? Like it's all about Richard?"
GJ: "She NEVER flirted with me."
PDL: "Never?"
GJ: "Nah! She just kicks me out, you know... She just comes in and
goes, 'What have we got? What have we got? What's going on?' And I go,
'I don't know!' And she goes, 'Move over!'"
PDL: "She doesn't say, 'Move over', she taps your shoulder and you get
up, right? Why is that? Have you asked yourself that?"
GJ: "I asked the fans, and the fans crack up because they know..."
PDL: "It's HER bum to be pressed against the material that where your
bum was just being pressed up against. Was that not..."
GJ: "I DON'T think so."
PDL: "Well, then you explain it(!)"
GJ: "Oh, because you know I'm doing a good job, but she does it
BETTER. But she's not gonna be..."
PDL: "I never thought of her that way. Because I always thought, you
know, no-one was better opening the iris than you."

(37min - Alt. Carter and Alt. O'Neill aboard the PJ, which is being
shot at by Ra's Jaffa)
PDL: "This was a lot of fun. Do you remember the old series 'Love
American Style'?"
GJ: "Yeah."
PDL: "Do you remember when they would kiss, and there would be
fireworks? Do you remember when you first met your wife?"
GJ: "Love American Sty-hyh-yle..."
PDL: "Well, this is a much anticipated for moment where they kiss, and
all the sparks go bam-bam-bam-kah-bam-bam-bam, right?"
GJ: "That's cool. What's going on?"
PDL: "I tried to play it as much as possible."
(Daniel and Alt. Teal'c deal with the Ra's Jaffa)
PDL: "So Ra is not a god. And I'm speaking English to you even though
you're from Ancient Egypt. And what's going on? Yeah, they still don't
speak English, Teal'c. They're still from Ancient Egypt."
GJ: "Relinquish - what?!"

(40min - last scene at O'Neill's pond, and End Titles)
PDL: "Now, did you ever see the famous 'The Simpsons' where Homer goes
back in time several times over trying to make the timeline right? And
he finally finally finally gets it right, and he's eating diner with
his family, and they all have forked, snake-like tongues? And he goes,
'Close enough', because he can't get back anymore. It'd just kill him,
right? 'Close enough', the fish in the pond, there's not supposed to
be any fish in this pond. 'Didn't you say there were no fish in this
pond?' - 'Close enough.' Inspired by the Simpsons episode. Close
enough. And even though there's fish in this pond, there's something a
miss."
GJ: "Right."
PDL: "With the timeline, if there are in fact fish in this pond. But
he's close enough because of the Simpsons homage. This is the same
pullback from Threads, without the cut-aways with the fish in the
pond. If this had been this last episode that Richard or the show or
whatever, that would have been their riding off into the sunset moment
right there. He finally gets Carter to go fishing with him, which a lot of the fans have been waiting for for many many years."
GJ: "I'm curious what my very final shot is gonna be."
PDL: "I think your final shot will probably be on a space ship with a
harem of beautiful exotic alien women, who're all green."
GJ: "Oh, and I'm just reaching out and clicking off the intercom ."
PDL: "Yes."
GJ: "My final reach and grab."
PDL: "Got to. And for those of you who don't know about reach and
grab, watch Gary. He's the master."

Smile Sally! It's just some author using quotes she gleaned from Amanda to establish her own point of view. It's not Amanda making any statements about Sam and Jack at all. Truly.

Trust you me... ;)

C'mon, Sally, cheer up. She's right. It's been proven more times than we can count. Some authori is just trying to establish her own point of view. Sam and Jack are together, and Rick and AT will eventually resolve their story for us. Keep the faith, sweetie!!!!!

Welcome, SierraGulfCharlie!
Welcome, Sally Lizzie!

This is a great place to share thoughts of Sam and Jack. The people here are great, and we have some really good discussions. We also go off-topic from time to time. For instance, I know my friends in Pennsylvania are happy this afternoon, because the Steelers are killing the Titans! Ah, well. Better luck next week.

But please come back and play with us often. We're subject to drastic mood swings, depending on the public state of THE SHIP. But deep down inside, someone is always here to remind us that there's no way Sam and Jack aren't together at this point, and that TPTB will give us a resolution.....eventually.

sally :( :( :( :(Sal...I feel ya...but keep in mind that Amanda is an actress. She wants whatever she thinks will be an interesting development for her character.

She's been playing Samantha Carter for a long time...and as an actress, she appreciates any storyline that means her character will experience change or growth because that's what continues to make playing her interesting.

As far as what she said about Sam and Jack, she started her comment by saying that she doesn't really have an answer on the Sam/Jack topic. She then went on to suggest that perhaps they're better off as just friends...but she's vascilated on this topic for years now...and frankly I think she's a little tired of it. And do you blame her? You spend years developing a rich, complex character, you go so far as to even BLOW UP A SUN, for crying out loud...and all people ever ask is "What about Sam and Jack???"

Also remember she's the first to point out the shippy moments in commentaries too...I just relistened to Lost City commentaries and she was positively giddy when they were watching Sam call Jack by his first name...Amanda: "She called him Jack!!! That's very important..."

So I think that, as an actress, Amanda's happy that the issue isn't front burner this year...but like she said at the ComicCon, the future is wide open for Sam and Jack...

:cool:

P.S...I hope I can count on shippers to vote for me in the Amanda Tapping Contest! please?

I read a comment from Amanda in the new official stargate magazine for this month and she was saying that she was glad they had got over the Sam pining for Jack thing...she said it was making her charatcer weak and she didn't like it. She also mentioned the fun she had with Pete i think....It did make me feel a bit upset that we have been following a wonderful ship between two characters when the actress playing one didn't believe in it :S

I don't want anyone to get the wrong idea, I love Amanda Tapping, she is a wonderful person but i just hoped she would be more supportive of the ship...

okies i had to get that over with first... now i'll say Hi everyone! :)
I haven't been around for a while but i'm starting college tomorrow and i've had to get some stuff sorted....
I've noticed that Ship Nana has brought a new batch of her shipper cookies over so i'm going to order a box as 'essential college supplies' :P:) and also to cure my Sam/Jack, RDA withdrawl...

I havent read what anyone else thought of Babylon but i was pretty disappointed, i loved Ex Deus Machina and thought we were going to get another ep like that but sadly it didn't do too much to grab my attention although we did get to see some more of Mitchell. I'm hoping next week is better....
