    Oh no, that's okay. I wasn't sure I would even be home to bid. It was exciting; I've never done something like this before. Definitely could be addicting.

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

                The small room has two windows, one on each side of a desk with bookshelves above it. The shelves are filled with various pieces of computer equipment, an assortment of remote controls and messy piles of paper. In the center of the desk are a keyboard and large monitor. A small loveseat sits against a wall with a printer stand acting as an end table. It's a comfortable room designed solely for the enjoyment of the woman who sits in the black chair staring intently at the computer screen.


                See, not so easy but it fills in the details and gives the reader a sense of the room. No charge for the writing lesson.
                All right, SR lets see what I write.
                Spoiler:
                In the larger living room has three windows, one sliding doors. There is two televisions, a 20" television and another side of the larger living room is 46" HDTV with Dolphins vs Jets game going on. On the wall has an 2010 Pittsburgh Penguins calendar next to the phone flasher. A big computer desk next to 20" television near the sliding door with my laptop and a old computer. A young deaf woman sitting in a comfy old cushion chair, staring at her laptop while she writes a reply on gateworld forum.

                          You know as I'm working my way through Season 5 on DVD, it is kinda funny that even though I've seen the episodes and remember have opinions on them beforehand, I find myself going through the exact same train of thoughts as when I watched the show the first time around. It's almost like I end up forming my opinions for the first time... again.

                          Anyway, I've gotten up to Remnants now & once again all the things that I loved and thought could have been improved on all came back to me at once.

                          I recall when I saw this episode for the first time, I really liked it. Mostly because it finally focused on Sheppard's internal struggle in explicit detail. Even if it was the B-Plot, (which should haven been switched around with the A plot) this was probably the first and ultimately only episode that seemed to actually talk about the fact that John is on something of a downward spiral stemming from the fact that he couldn't save the people he cared about. It was one episode that I thought was probably very heavily referencing Elizabeth (and I guess also all those other guys that he was crushed that he couldn't save). And then it was not until later that I found out later that there was actually a mention of her by name that as cut from the episode. But even without knowing about it, I made that connection.

                          What got me most about this episode in retrospect though, was the fact that because it's an extremely character driven episode, it feels very much like an episode that was part of an arc. More than most in fact. And despite the fact that not a lot happens in the grand scheme of things (like regarding the wraith and so forth) it still feels like it's addressing something of importance (perhaps more important than anything else really), the character's personal stories. The AI interacted with Woolsey Rodney and John all in a very personal way, and it seemed like it was an episode that felt like it was supposed to be something of an epiphany for John. Possibly to confront his personal demons eventually ater down the road. Which again kind of brings me back to the feeling that Season 5 felt like it was building for something bigger and grander in the future or something.

                          Anyway, the fact that the actually drew attention to that, especially with Sheppard in particular, just seems a lot like they were actually going to go somewhere with the concept. As it was he last season, it turns out they never did. If the show hadn't been canceled maybe they would have. I know it seems so often like they never would, but I guess you never know.

                          I guess it's up to the fans how it take it all now, really. Whether in fanficton writing or otherwise.

                          Speaking of which I really gotta keep working on mine. It's too tempting to take breaks, which then are probably a little too long. *sigh*

                              The auction was fascinating to watch. Maybe because I wasn't directly involved in it I was a little more objective. But did it make anybody else feel very sad. For the first time since the show ended, I got the feeling that it's really over. I know JM and others have said they could easily rebuild the sets and do a movie but I don't see how that's going to be possible with everything down to the floor tiles being sold. How much did they get for the SGA gate, BTW?

                              Okay, you've got the basic facts but need work on your sentence structure and grammar. I wish I had time to help you but am going on vacation this Wednesday until late October. I would suggest getting a basic English grammar book and start with writing complete sentences. Here is one simple but excellent source: http://www.bbc.co.uk/skillswise/word...orksheet.shtml Good luck and show me what you've done when I get back. Homework, OMG! Oh and I realized a lot of us *points to self* don't help by writing here in incomplete sentences. Don't use anything you read on a forum as a good example of English sentence structure. Every sentence must have a subject and verb. We are really bad examples. What? You know we are.

                              I'm glad you posted this because I feel the same way. I thought John got extremely shortchanged in S5. Even more the other 4 seasons. I know this was probably from behind the scenes situations. JF alluded to there being problems with him in Chicago. It all boils down to unprofessional writers who let their personal feelings influence how they were writing their show. The hero should have been the hero and should have been #1 always when writing arcs. But we all know they did not consider Sheppard their #1.

                              I think we're lucky we got as much as we did on him and that's mostly thanks to Joe's persistence. In relation to your assessment of Remnants and John's state of mind I have a question for everyone.

                              Does John have PTSD? Is his behavior consistent with someone who is mentally unstable? If so, what was the cause and how should it be treated?

                                Nice job! Very descriptive! I have some friends that are Deaf and I know it's hard for them sometimes to write English, but being Deaf it makes you describe things in detail, which is great for storywriting! You're doing a good job!

I know this was probably from behind the scenes situations. JF alluded to there being problems with him in Chicago. It all boils down to unprofessional writers who let their personal feelings influence how they were writing their show. The hero should have been the hero and should have been #1 always when writing arcs. But we all know they did not consider Sheppard their #1.

                                I think we're lucky we got as much as we did on him and that's mostly thanks to Joe's persistence. In relation to your assessment of Remnants and John's state of mind I have a question for everyone.

                                Does John have PTSD? Is his behavior consistent with someone who is mentally unstable? If so, what was the cause and how should it be treated?
                                I agree, it seems John just wasn't himself after the events of early S4 ... Even if, according to TPTB, and I'm saying, we strongly disagree on this, they weren't in a relationship, Elizabeth was the person that had so much faith in him, even when she didn't know him ... and even when she knew about his black mark. Losing the person that has had your back for four years is always tough to take.

                                But when you lose your lover, your best friend, your everything, it makes you wanna take on a lot more suicide missions.

                                And it makes us count all the ways that we can keep her alive!

                                Anyhow, jumping back to something Anuna posted a while back, are we still coming up with all the possible scenarios why John and Elizabeth would pretend to be married???

                                Mine again: planet has Alpha Female system, top one being married females. John has to pretend to be married to Elizabeth cause she's on top.

                                *looks at writing pun then decides to leave it*
