      Howdy folks! Just hoping everybody had a great Impedance Day, while keeping all their hands and fingers, last week. The heat up here last week had me hurting pretty good since I was working most last week. Just letting y'all know I'm still around. Off to work for nights!

              was going through some old documents and found this old episode "script" that i was working on from 2006 and here it is.

              it's sparky and this was just the teaser of it.

              so hope you enjoy it

              TEASER

              FADE IN:

              EXT. SHOT ATLANTIS - DAY

              FADE TO:

              INT. ATLANTIS CONTROL ROOM - DAY

              LONG SHOT of DR. ELIZABETH WEIR as she walks across the Control Room. The Morning shift of Atlantis personnel bustles in the background, but her attention is fixed on the DATA PAD in her arms. The camera slowly coasts to an OTS shot as Weir approaches the door to her office. Through the glass we can see a dark form shifting in the room beyond. Weir takes no notice as the door SWISHES open.

              CUT TO:

              INT. WEIR’S OFFICE - CONTINUING

              PAN UP from floor as Weir enters. Startled, she looks up to see…

              PULLING BACK we find LT. COL. JOHN SHEPPARD stands in the center of the office, juggling three GLASS SNOWGLOBES with a playful grace. (Prop Note: The globes are smooth orbs that rest on removable stands. The stands sit on Weir’s desk.) Seeming to take no notice of Weir’s entrance, he tosses the globes under his leg, behind his back, over his shoulder and high over his head.

              ANGLE to include Sheppard and Weir as she makes for her desk.

              WEIR
              (with a subtle smirk.)
              Good morning, Colonel. I hope you haven’t come to tell me you’re leaving Atlantis to join the circus.

              CLOSE UP of Sheppard, intent on his performance.

              SHEPPARD
              Just sharpening those cat-like reflexes.

              SHEPPARD tosses a globe in the air, spins around, catches the globe, then reverses the maneuver.

              SHEPPARD (CONT’D)
              Besides, the circus would just seem boring after all this -

              He rolls a globe down his forearm, pops it in the air and returns to his routine.

              SHEPPARD (CONT’D)
              Though I’ll admit
              , a lifetime supply of free popcorn does sound like a tempting offer.

              Weir smirks again as she sets her data pad on the desk. Sheppard catches the globes with a practiced elegance.

              CLOSE UP on Sheppard as he turns one upside down and stares into it with wonder, watching the snow swirl around a familiar skyline.

              SHEPPARD (CONT’D)
              You know, Elizabeth, you’re not the kind of person I would have expected to bring snow globes into the vast reaches of the unknown universe.

              Weir settles into her seat as if it were the utmost in normalcy to stumble across the commanding military officer of the Atlantis Expedition doing carnival tricks in her office.

              WEIR
              They were a gift from the President.

              Beat. Sheppard’s eyes widen and he quickly returns the globes to Weir’s desk. Weir remains the epitome of professionalism.

              SHEPPARD
              (embarrassed.)
              I, um, like the one with the little monkey...

              He runs a nervous hand through his hair, taking a seat opposite Weir.

              SHEPPARD (CONT’D)
              (switching subjects.)
              So, have you thought about it?

              Weir meets his gaze with a wary eye.

              WEIR
              I’ve already made my decision, Colonel. The answer is still no.

              Sheppard nonchalantly shifts in his chair. A devilish smirk creeps across his face.

              SHEPPARD
              C’mon, Doctor. This place could use a little celebration after all we’ve been through.

              WEIR
              (with a stern surprise.)
              Celebration? John, you’re asking me to okay a five hundred lap jumper race around the city-

              SHEPPARD
              (in a correcting tone.)
              Outskirts of the city-

              WEIR
              And you don’t see my cause for concern?

              SHEPPARD
              (brushing her off.)
              This city has survived two Wraith onslaughts and a ten thousand year journey to the bottom of the sea. I think it can handle a little romp around the maypole.

              CLOSE UP as Weir leans forward.

              WEIR
              (calmly.)
              It’s not the city I’m worried about, John.

              SHEPPARD
              (defensively.)
              I’ve been training jumper pilots since we got here. Believe me, they know what they’re doing.

              Weir nods knowingly, as if she finally catches on to something.


              WEIR
              That’s what this is about, isn’t it?

              SHEPPARD
              (innocently.)
              I have no idea what you’re talking about.

              Weir leans back with a knowing smile.

              WEIR
              Those boys must be doing exceptionally well if you feel so threatened that you have to prove your capabilities in a public forum.

              SHEPPARD
              (with feigned offense.)
              This has nothing to do with me.

              CLOSE UP of Weir – she’s not buying it. Sheppard continues without missing a beat.

              SHEPPARD (CONT’D)
              I simply felt it would be nice if they could test their mettle against someone who’s not trying to blow them out of the sky...

              Sheppard illustrates his point with a hand gesture.

              SHEPPARD (CONT’D)
              ...And maybe help to repair the relationship with the Athosians. They’re big into sports, right? We can show them yet another aspect of Earth culture to help bridge the gap.

              Sheppard settles back in his chair casually.

              SHEPPARD (CONT’D)
              ...If I happen to get a big, shiny trophy out of the deal...

              Sheppard shrugs innocently.

              SHEPPARD
              ...Well, I’ll live.

              Weir’s eyes narrow emphatically.

              WEIR
              This is Atlantis, John, not Talladega Speedway. When it comes to sensitive intercultural affairs, I usually draw the line at drag racing.

              Sheppard opens his mouth to defend himself, but he is interrupted by the arrival of DR. RADEK ZELENKA. Zelenka’s excitement is obvious. He speaks quickly, stumbling through his words.

              ZELENKA
              Sorry to interrupt, Dr. Weir, but something important has come up.
              Zelenka gives a nod to Sheppard.

              ZELENKA (CONT’D)
              ...This may be of interest to you too, Colonel.
              Weir gives Zelenka a warm smile as she stands.

              WEIR
              It’s all right, Doctor. We’re done here.

              Weir shoots Sheppard a look that all but screams “End of Discussion”. Sheppard pouts as Weir turns her back to him, but he dutifully rises and follows the two out the door.

              Off this moment we –-

              FADE OUT

                I love the idea of a puddle jumper race around Atlantis. And ROFL at John after Elizabeth told him the snow globes were from the President. Awesome!

                Well ... my A/C is out in my house, so every single fan is going and the porch door is open, blowing in outside air. Repair man is supposed to come at 8am in the morning, so we'll just have to tough it out tonight.

                Have some housework type things to do, then I'll be back. Fic bunnies and GIMP bunnies are attacking me.

                      sorry to hear about your a/c going out. i can speak from experience that when a/c is out during a heatwave or if its just hot as hell it's not a pretty thing.

                      also i have to ask. did i get john and elizabeth's dialogue right?

                      Comment


                        So right after I posted that last comment, I got called to interpret at a hospital and I just got home. That was exhausting ... and entertaining as hell. I'll explain later. I need to go fall over face first on my bed, in my house that is still around 87 degrees without the A/C working.

                        See ya in the AM. *thuds*

                          Thanks. And yes, the dialogue sounded right. I ran through it again in my head and it looks like the beginning of a funny SGA episode where something is about to go terribly wrong. In character, from my POV.

                            But that's just my two cents.
                            I must wonder away from the tv during the funny parts. Jane's hunt for Red John is what keeps me trying. Maybe if I catch one of the mini-marathons on TNT I'll find an episode or two to pull me in finally.

                              And don't forget all the scifi connections thanks to the excellent casting of Colm Meaney (from TNG and DS9) and Christopher Heyerdahl (Atlantis and Sanctuary). I may finally give in a snag it on DVD if the price keeps going down.

                              I really like your new sig, SR.

                                Sheppard: Dammit! I said "I dream of Jeannie", not "I dream of Jeannie's.....brother". These ancient devices NEVER work!
