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

        I like it, though perhaps we can spell it differently to be closer to the true pronunciation without umlauts? It would make writing it easier.

        I looked up a couple more that I was trying to keep in sync with the Genii feel and came up with:

        Raine
        Jolan
        Malak
        Kieran
        Nerys
        Tristan
        Calen
        Iselle

        One that I really, really like is Carys. I can hear John/Joe saying that. For some reason, I'm having a hard time imagining John saying many of our choices intimately, which he's going to have to do in quiet moments. I'm trying to imagine scenes where he goes 'Malak...' in a whisper and it just doesn't sound right. But Carys works for me, it sounds both strong enough for her to be a leader and yet gentle or soft enough for intimacy...

        I think Mahel would work that way too...
        Carys doesn't work for me because I hear John saying "Carith". We got way off track with all the names earlier so let's limit it to just a few. We have I believe 4 votes for Maelle, which I think is fine without the umlaut. The alternate spelling I saw was Mael but that might come out as Mal or Mail in people's heads so why not just go with Maelle? I can see John teasingly calling her "Ellie".

        Kris, the Christmas fic is looking good! A necklace that looks kind of like the control tower? John, you are such a sentimental romantic! Squee!



        Yay, storms! They did give some nice fuel to the Sparky fire, after all!



        It looks nice enough written out, though I agree with Eri that we should try to spell it without the umlauts. Although, if SR is right about the pronunciation being 'mah-el,' I keep getting this image of John calling her "Mah," which leads to images of him saying "Mom," which sounds very similar, and it just doesn't work so well for me.

        Eri's suggestion of Carys sounds good, and there was also Arine, which we were considering earlier.
        I suggest we start a vote on Carys, Arine and Maelle. Any objections?

        I don't have GW notifications turned on either but come to think of it haven't gotten any LJ notifications since yesterday and I get those on Gmail.

          The doc said she will be fine. The worst part is behind her. He said she has to be in hospital during 6 days. They will keep an eye on her and after that she will go to a special house during 3 weeks. My aunt gave us a big smile this afternoon and my dad said many stupid jokes. She's happy to have new heart.lol
          Now I'm with my uncle.

          Thanks SR

            I totally love the fact that he'd teasingly call her Ellie and that she'd give him a playful offended look every time
            That'd be so like him

              *huggles Probie* I'm glad to hear your aunt's prognosis is excellent and that she's in good spirits after the surgery.

              He would so do that.

              My #1 vote goes to Arine, but I'll agree to Maelle as long as it's not pronounced Mah-el; like I said before, it makes it sound like he's calling her "Mom," which is just wrong. So I'd like to suggest May-el or Mai-el as alternate pronunciations.

                That works for me. We can go with May-el. As long as John doesn't turn it around and say Ellie May. LOL

                Okay, let's start the official vote. If you've already stated your preference, you need to vote again. I vote for Maelle. The number after the / is for second choice.

                Carys
                Aline--1
                Maelle-1/1

                  My only concern with this is how it's written. If you want it pronounced May-el or Mah-el, since we're writing it, we need it to be clear.

                  Mayel would be read "may-el" or "my-el", either of which is fine with me.
                  Mahel would be Mah-el

                  So can we make it Mayel? That looks a little more genii in spelling, too...

                    I have to admit I'm only skimming through here but had to giggle at the Ellie thing because the little girl I nanny is named Elizabeth and her parents call her Ellie....

                    which might be kind of a neat twist in all of this.....

                      Or tries to pull a "My Elle" kind of pun.

                      Like what, John and Mayel finally take their relationship to bed, and John mumbles a name in his sleep; she thinks it's her name, but later she realizes he was saying "Elizabeth?" That's cruel. And I like it.

                        You know what's funny? Though I don't think we'll show anything more intimate than the kiss, if we do this correct we may be able to have people writing fanfiction about Mayel if they like her. Kinda like fanfic off fanfic.

                        That would be weird

                          Works for me. I'll change it to Mayel. So does that name have your vote?

                          Yep, a kiss is enough. But if she's a good character, people will like her.
