    So I'm an Herbology Teacher? So I can take Neville and squish him and love him and never let him go?



    Dramatic moments - how did I miss Elizabeth's injury in First Strike? I guess it's one of those moments that I have wiped from my brain.

    Comment


      I forgot about the dramatic moments contest until FH reminded us so I kind of had to try to remember what the ones that stuck out with me on short notice. 4 of mine came from the last 2 seasons, but I thought I should point out that I was the one who voted for "Elizabeth gets captured by replicators" which is kind of the same moment as one of the first two, so I guess that one should be voted as number 1?

      Anyway regarding Farsape, for me it was a little different. It was always on TV when I was growing up, but from the commercials and few parts of it I stopped to watch made it seem like some really weird creepy sci-fi show. So I never really stopped to think about watching it too much. As time went on I'd occasionally stop to watch an episode or two if it was on. Over the second and third seasons I watched a handful of them and somehow managed to discern just enough about the show to understand the basic idea behind most of what was going on (which I think was pretty lucky I have to admit ). I ended up watching most of the final few episodes of Season 3. When the Season 4 premier came on I watched it, and over the next couple of them I decided I was interested enough to watch the rest of the season faithfully.

      When I went back and watched the rest of the show in order, I liked it eve more. I'd say the First Season picks up a lot in the second half and The Second Season is even better,.
      "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!"

      *You got the touch! You got the poweeeeer!*

      "Elizabeth..."

        If I'd been around then, I would have been a full fledged anti, with stinky socks and all.

        Season one still remains my favorite even though I generally prefer Ronon to Ford and a lot of great Sparky happens in the later seasons. If I had to pick my top 5 episodes, 3 would probably come from this season.

        ETA: Harry Potter weekend has begun! Being a Charms Master would in RL would be cool!
        Season 1 is my favorite as well. My order is 1, 3, 2, 4, 5.

I was hooked pretty much from the start. The only thing that made me cringe every single time until the very end of the show, was the intro theme.

        Wow, lots of variety there! The bolded ones are mine. I'm surprised I'm the only one to choose Carson's death.

        Ok, who is the other person who voted for Vegas!John's death? Let me guess..... was it Southern Red?

          I'm in the process of trying to write an AU fic set in WWII - the challenge stated that 1000 words would get you the max amount of points... I already maxed out and I'm not even done yet. It's eating my brain...

              If Snape's faith is anything to go by, I'd stick to potions master.

                Harry Potter weekend! Squeeee!!

                I also had to post to see what my rank is.

                Been busy lately preparing to go back to college, but I'm all moved in now, so I should have a bit more time.


                Edit: Ha! Divination teacher! LOL! Use your inner eye to see the future!!!!!

                  Coming out of lurkdom to find out my HP rank, LOL.

                  I have enjoyed reading the shippy and drama-y polls - SGA had lots of good moments - I miss it.

                  On a happy note - just got a blu-ray player and LOTR super special extended edition from my hubby. Can't wait to dive into that!

                  Hmmmm - favorite teasing moments between SGA characters - that would be another interesting poll - I'd have to recommend the "beard comment" from Epiphany. :-D

                        *Waves* Hi Sparky fans

                        I finished my first ever watch through of SGA about a week ago, and I have got to say I absolutely loved all the Sparky moments (as well as all the McKay moments and the Carson moments...... ooh and the Zelenka moments and the...... well you get the idea!!)

                        Is the "Why John Sheppard are you defending my honour" moment in the teasing poll?? (if not can it be?) That was the scene that made me go back and look for more Sparky moments

                          Welcome to the thread!!

                          We haven't done a teasing poll yet. Right now we're on angsty moments. Maybe teasing/flirting can be next. The "defending my honor" scene would definitely qualify!!

                            *hangs head in shame* I forgot Vegas. I may be drummed out of the Joe/John fangirl sorority. I was too focused on Sparky.

                            Hi and welcome. Stay around and play. We have lots of fun Sparky teasing to talk about.

                            Speaking of teasing and things eating brains...my Sparky smut story has consumed me. I hope to finish it this week. It's unusually long for me. I may even need a beta.

                            Here's my favorite line so far.
                            Spoiler:
                            John wasn’t sure he would ever get to heaven, but this was close enough.

                                Booked my train to Marseille yesterday, and my hotel. The countdown to Halfway can really start now. Leaving on the 28th of October, and arriving around 5-ish in the afternoon.
