    Heh, cheers for that. Lol. You might be right. I'll buy Reliquary for my kindle, but might give the rest a miss unless someone can talk me into any others....

    It drives me nuts when the novel authors get the characters all wrong. There was one SG1 book where Jack was nothing more than an abrasive, antagonistic PITA, pretty much the whole way through. It was so OOC and really annoying too; every time he spoke I was mentally telling him to shut up! I can understand that Rodney may be a little challenging to write, but seriously, if you're a published author who's watched the show it can't be that hard to get him at least somewhat right.

      Yeah, in some of those novels Rodney is written as abrasive, stubborn to the point of stupidity, callous, cowardly, and beyond selfish, with no positive qualities to speak of. He's characterized as a nuisance for the team whose only worth is in his scientific expertise. He has plenty of flaws, but those novels absurdly exaggerate them and deny him all of the character development that he got on the show. Give me fanfiction any day of the week.

              Hi there

              I’m completely new here in the forum and pretty new in the franchise as well. Unfortunately this thread doesn’t seem to be very active anymore, but maybe we can revive it?

              I fell in love with Rodney right from the start and at least since season 2 I got very interested in McShep and enjoyed all their little scenes together throughout the series. So now that I’ve finished all five seasons, I’ve started to read a lot of fanfics. That’s probably the only advantage in joining a fandom very late: You’ve got tons of great fanfics to catch up on. Sadly there’s also a lot of crack stories, which I really don’t like at all. I’m generally also not a big fan of AU fics (with some exceptions). I prefer stories that take place in the known world of SGA and that have very good characterizations. And preferably they should be long ones. Still, there are so many good ones, that I’ll probably never finish reading them all. But I can well try.

              What about you? Are you reading fanfiction? And if you do, what kind are you prefering?

              I’m also curious, are you only interested in McShep, or are there other pairings on the show you ship simultaneously?

              I’m looking forward to meet some fellow McShep fans here!

                that was such a great clip, thanks, Lythisrose!

                  Hi Cil! I would gladly talk to you about McShep-themed fanfiction but isn't it off-topic here? I mean is it some other place to talk this stuff? (I should probably read more about forum rules )

                    Hi!

                    Wow, I really was starting to think I'm the only McShep fan here, who's still active...

                    I have no idea if that's off topic. You know, I didn't really know what to write here, but I wanted to revive the thread. And since I mostly get my McShep fix through fanfictions these days, I started to write about that. Sorry if that happens to be off topic. Feel free to start an on-topic discussion about McShep. ;-)

                    Oh and you could also write me a PM about fanfiction, if you prefer that.

                      Hi Cil! I don't know if I can send you PM, since I am Probie-wan-Kenobi! I love me some fanfiction, too, but I enjoy AU as well. For me, John and Rodney can easily be laundry automates, if the characterizations are spot-on. 'Cause, you know, sometimes you read something close to canon and... do not recognize you favorite characters, right? I mean, what's the point then? I will rather go and torture myself by some "War and Peace" instead (not that it's difficult to read, but it's extremely annoying).

                      I enjoy other parings as well. I mean, mostly McShep, because it's the most 'real' and 'realistic' relationship we can see in whole the franchise, IMO, at least on the screen. But I like other stuff, too, if it can be explained to me. If it's believable and I can see the motivation behind the whole thing. For example - not Woolsey and Rodney, because I don't see it in cannon and I cannot fathom - why should they be interested in each other? And not Rodney and Katie Brown, except for "already in the full break-up mood". But Sheppard and Todd - no problem . Not Mitchell and Sam - because they are so breathtakingly sweet as "old friends, almost brother and sister". But maybe Mitchell and Sheppard? They have a lot in common, they obviously know each other, not to mention the level of hotness . Hey, maybe even Rodney and Mitchell can be OK, if it's well-written. After all, Cameron was like a real pig against Rodney in "Pegasus Project", may it's something there?.... hmmm...

                      AU Rodney definitely had a lot of chemistry with Sam..... etc etc.

                      I have to admit I haven't read the whole thread (hey, it's just 332 pages!) so I don't know if I really can start some sane discussion here. Everything was probably already discussed, twice. This is the disadvantage of coming to fandom too late

                        Have not posted on here in forever but thought Id drop by and post this new Mcshep vid I made. I Love Mcshep I always find it does not matter how many fandoms I go through I always end up coming back to SGA and Mcshep

                          to be honest the music here is not my cup of tea but the video is great! How you guys always come up with something this hilarious I have no idea. Thank you for posting it!

                          i like McShep, too, but at the same time my feeling is that JF started to play this in 'McSheppy' way in later seasons, when TPTB threw away Elizabeth. I don't see that much slash-chemistry in the first seasons, beside of friendship; but after Elizabeth's disappearance it's all here - right in your face! ) Guess the actors were just bored by their on-screen celibate. I mean, OK, Rodney had his "girlfriends", but without any kind of chemistry, and John only had his hero-stuff and cringe-worthy ONSs. IMO

                            Looking for a quick beta of a 350 word ficlet. It's PG-13 and has a kiss, and that's it. And I've never written John/Rodney before, hence why it's only a quick kiss and 350 words long. My apologies.

                            But if anyone could help me out, that would be nice.
