    Ok I can imagine what you must have been thinking, to which I ::shudder::



    I go back and forth about thinking they did occasionally know what they were doing. I've lurked in other Elizabeth ship areas, and there seemed to be a consensus that the Sparky was blatant and sometimes over the top. So, which is it? Not there, or blatant? It can't be both. I suppose it could be blatant to everyone but TPTW.
    There was a lot of that sort of thing...comments about the Sparky being OTT. According to TPTB it wasn't there. I'm not sure how they missed it. I always thought it was like fanfic writers who can't beta their own work. In fact, it's nearly impossible to do because you read what you think you wrote not necessarily what's actually on the page. In my arrogance, I think I can do it but when I've gone back and read some of my fics, I realize I can't. So they are seeing what they intended. In fact the commentaries back that up a lot of times.

    *snerks* That's pretty much par for the course.

    And now, to this week's SGU for Atlantis Rising report on #2.12 "Twin Destinies":

    Spoiler:
    Basically nothing, again. There was one brief exchange between T.J. and Lt. Vanessa James about how McKay kept staring at James's ass (I would assume this happened before those now on Destiny went to Icarus Base).

    The preview for next week's episode ("Alliances") was rather jumbled, with no overt indication of the Lucian Alliance attack we're now assuming is going to happen in that episode. There is a mention of a bomb and a shot of some weird device with pinkish light/energy in it, which I'm assuming is the bomb in question. Maybe my theory about the "attack" actually being more of a raid (presumably on Homeworld Command, based on the episode teaser that was posted some weeks ago) is on the right track...
    I'm surprised they put that little part in about
    Spoiler:
    Rodney looking at someone's ass. Wasn't McKeller their OTP? Now if they had made it John doing that, I wouldn't have been surprised. Or Zelenka.


    Oh, and gateraid, that last one was exactly what I was thinking. He should have been licking his lips.

              And I'm back. Just a snippet, mind you and smutty only if you want to make it so. This is a possible scenario for what happens after they get back from the picnic. It might take some thought as to how this is possible. Hopefully, I won't have to explain it to anybody.

              Spoiler:
              Did You Hear What Happened to Sheppard and Weir?



              “A picnic you say.” Carson spread steroid cream on another large welt on John's back, shaking his head in disbelief.

              “Mprmph,” his patient replied from his position face down on the exam table.

              “Hard to believe a few wee antlike creatures could have done all this damage. You must have spread your picnic over their burrow and then sat on it.” Carson's voice trailed off as he continued to dab away at John's back, moving down now into the upper thigh area.

              John banged his head on the padded table a couple of times. “Just hurry up, please Doc. The itching is making me want to punch something.”

              “Patience lad.” Carson put his tube of cream aside for a moment and took a small petrie dish from his nurse. They exchanged a few murmured words and she departed.

              “Are those the things that bit me?” John twisted his head around in an attempt to see.

              Carson shook the container in front of John's eyes before stowing it on a nearby table and continuing with his ministrations. “Aye, nurse Marie shook these out of your clothes. They appear to be a sort of insect resembling the ant, except for the odd pink color.”

              “Huh?” John said, “Pink ants. Where but in the Pegasus Galaxy?”

              Carson had moved down to John's feet where he treated the few remaining red and swollen areas before pulling the sheet back up to cover his patient's exposed body.

              “Now, tell me again,” Carson said, “how is it that you ended up bitten all the way down your back side but the lass only has a few bites of a smilar nature from the knees down? Because, if you were both sitting on a blanket enjoying your picnic, then why do you not have a similar pattern of bites?”

              John reddened slightly and banged his forehead on the table a few more times. “Carson,” he said, struggling to sit up and pull the sheet around him.

              But Carson had caught up. “Never you mind,” he said, handing John his neatly folded stack of clothes from which all the dead pink ants had been removed. “That's a conversation for another time. But I hope this will teach the both of you to take along some insect repellent the next time you go on one of your off world picnics. Otherwise, I'll need to order more steroid cream.”

                  Or you could just say they were too stupid to see what was right in front of them?

                        I still think at least some of Sparky was written in just to get shippers' attention, but even if it wasn't, a lot of the scenes they had always struck me as too convenient to be an accident. Even if they were. I suppose certain things are easier to mistake for romantic chemistry (especially since Weir and Sheppard were always written to be close, whatever their actual relationship was) but others came across as virtually impossible to ignore. The "defending my honor scene" for example. And I thought it was sort of weird how Elizabeth and John got this big emotional hug at the start of season 2 and the very next episode shows her becoming single again. At the time I thought it was as obvious a plan as you can get. And again, this is coming from someone who very rarely takes notice of "shipping".
                        "First Weir, then Samantha Carter, and now, you! It's a pity you humans die or get reassigned so easily, or I might have a sense of satisfaction now!"

                        "Arise, Woolseyus Prime."

                        "Elizabeth..."

                          Believe me, you're not alone. Both my husband and son said the same thing and neither of them is by no means a shipper. Mr. SR has to be hit over the head with it. SR Jr. sees it but usually just shrugs it off. He was so adamant about Sparky in S2, he argued with me when I said it wasn't planned. He held up TLG as proof and patiently explained to his old mom that that's how they do it in SciFi when they are showing the intended ship. The last time we talked about it, he just said he thought the writers were on drugs. LOL

                              Yeah The Long Goodbye is maybe the best example I would be able to come up with too. The reason being that the big Sparky kiss didn't really make a lot of sense in my mind. I don't quite understand what reason Phebus would really have to do that. Logically I don't see how that makes her plan any better, the whole scene looked like it was written in there mostly for the audience.

                                Humph and I thought SGA writers could give two s**ts about what the fans want.
