    Question: I was watching "Pegasus Project" and I thought about you. With the story "It's an illusion", how do you explain this crossover? If this idea (They woke up on the planet of the episode "Home") was the real end of SGA, it also means the story in SG1 was an illusion. Am I clear?lol But I don't know if "Pegasus Project" was after or before "TRW" and I don't know if my question is logical.lol

      Told from the perspective of Atlantis, it's an illusion. Told from the perspective of SG-1, it's real. Here's how it works:

      For starters, if we presume Atlantis's S2-5 are illusions, then Atlantis and the SG-1 timeline will never match up. From the SGA perspective, any interactions with SG-1 people have been dreamed up in the minds of the Atlantis folks courtesy the fog people.

      BUTTTTTTTTTTTT...

      At some point, when they wake up, time will have reverted back to '2004', or some point close to when they started the expedition (presuming, as we've seen before, that not much time passes in real life when people are trapped in an illusion). Given that, time is then free to evolve again--which means it's entirely possible for the time line to develop to a point where the Pegasus Project storyline happens in 'real time' just as it happened when they dreamed it. So the SG-1 people DO experience TPP in real life, while the Atlantis people experience it again, but this time 'for real'.

      The episode actually supports this idea quite nicely (other than the 'hey, we've done this before' sorta references). The only people in Atlantis we see are Elizabeth, Rodney & John. Everyone else's status is open to interpretation. Plus, there are a few interesting differences between TPP and Atlantis Season 3:

      1) Rodney kinda reverts to jerk-Rodney of SG-1, which is a little OOC for his character development in SGA.

      2) John brings up Rodney's lemon allergy, when he never mentions it in SGA.

      3) Elizabeth's hair is straight and smooth, whereas in Atlantis she wore it curly or curled at the ends.

      So The Pegasus Project could actually slot in quite nicely if the story reverted back to Home.

      It also works after The Real World, and I think (based on the length of Elizabeth's hair) that it does happen after TRW.

        As far as the SG-1 people, they're just living it out.

        Ok....I really like this idea now.

          You mean John has never mentioned it on SGA, right? Since Rodney has mentioned it a couple of times on SGA, and I'm pretty sure at least one of them was when John was there to hear it.

          Hmm, I hadn't actually considered that placement for TPP; in my personal canon timeline, I've got it set not too long after Misbegotten, but having TPP as late as after TRW definitely works as well.

          Sparky is on screen. Therefore, it is canon. Elizabeth is still out there. And John WILL bring her home.

              Yes, just John. Rodney, of course, brings it up in Rising. But I always thought it was odd that John pulls a lemon out of his jacket and mentions that little tidbit to Mitchell when he never actually EVER threatened Rodney with citrus before.

              Yeah, timing wise it's kinda hard to place, but based on her hair I thought it was later in the first half of season 3. Since they came on Odyssey, I figured Midway wasn't complete which puts it before The Return (it's also possible they needed the ship for the Gate experiment--who knows?)

              But Elizabeth's hair is a little longer than in Progeny, which is where I think they stopped filming for a little while (since every episode after, including TRW, has her with her hair getting down past her shoulders). So I figured it was after that--best guess is that it's after Common Ground but before McKay and Mrs. Miller since the ZPM isn't depleted.

              Most crossovers are intended to be difficult to place, anyhow.

                It's very odd! One would think that John would be all over anything he could use to yank Rodney's chain, but he doesn't. Weird.

                And they didn't even mention the gate bridge in TPP; you'd think that there might be some snarkiness between McKay and Carter over it as they both contributed to the design, but there's nothing.

                So, between CG and McKay and Mrs. Miller? Sounds good to me.

                Darn those writers. Don't they know we nitpickers need to have our details?

                  Yeah, the citrus thing is one thing I found supremely strange. Like, one of those things you go, 'heh, really?' when John mentions it. Because John IS prone to threatening Rodney from time to time, but he never goes after the citrus allergy and then three years in during the crossover, you get this weird scene with him mentioning it to Mitchell as though he does it all the time. *shrugs*

                  But, if you look at it from the perspective of a non-SGA-watching-SG-1-viewer, then John's behavior is to be looked at as 'oh. I get it--that guy is an Atlantis version of Mitchell! And he's totally dating the leader of the expedition--did you see how they flirted with each other?'

                  Problem is, any SGA-watching-SG-1-viewers (or conversely, SGA-watching-non-SG-1-viewers) would go 'what the heck is Sheppard doing with a lemon in his pocket?'

                    And let's not forget that inexplicable sighting of an empty lemon jello cup at McKay's workstation during Tao of Rodney later in Season 3. It's like a total 'right hand doesn't know what the left hand is doing' disconnect happening with the writing. Bah.

                    Flirting, shamelessly having eye!sex in front of SG-1 at the briefing, probably did it in a closet before the briefing and going off to find another closet after the briefing... Ahahahah!

                    Exactly! I still cracked up at it, but more at the absurdity of Sheppard carrying around a lemon than my knowledge of McKay's "allergy."

                      51. You wonder if Elizabeth and John would go clothes shopping together and what kind of goofy fun they could get into
                      52. Seeing an ad for Christmas pajamas with candy canes on them makes you think about Sparky and gives you a smutty plot bunny.

                      57. When your friends know your obsession enough to give you an absolutely amazing drawing of John and Elizabeth (that kissing manip I did) for a Christmas present.
                      58. And when you scream (really) and sink to the floor in happiness when you open said present.
                      59. You check the thread at least once every hour, eagerly awaiting the moment when the thread hits a new post milestone.
                      60. You sing "Something to Talk About" at karaoke and almost start to giggle at the line "Stand just a little too close" because it makes you think of Sparky (well...I wanted to giggle at pretty much the whole song...)
                      61. All this talk about blizzards and getting snowed in makes you want to read/write some fic about John and Lizzie cooped up in a cozy cabin during a snow storm.


                      62. You name the various components of your computer setup for Atlantis and Sparky.

                      Sparky is on screen. Therefore, it is canon. Elizabeth is still out there. And John WILL bring her home.

                        Eri 13 Do you really think Sheppard is the atlantis version of Mitchell? i always thought since he is the first leader of the first atlantis Recon Team he would be more like the Jack O'Neill of the group since Jack is the first leader of SG-1.

                          Hi, miss me? RL gets complicated this time of year and I have to actually go out and do stuff. Today was my annual holiday tea at the Ritz Carlton with my 2 friends. It was oh so very refined and naturally there was an accident on the beltway on the way home which turned a 30 minute trip into 1 1/2 hours.

                          But while stuck in traffic I was listening to my Aaron Neville Christmas CD and heard Please Come Home For Christmas . Proving once again that I can find Sparky everywhere.

                            *hobbles into thread* Oh boy, it was a rough one. Never good when the liquid steel doesn't want to turn into solid steel. Need some sparky to help me feel better.

                              From 30 minutes to an hour and a half? Ack! Not a fun drive.

                              Oooh, that is such a Sparky song... sing it to us, Aaron!

                              Meep! How's this fic: Love Bug, by Zandra's Ashes. It's not finished yet, but there's already some good fluff and Lizzie thrown for a loop by a loopy John.
