        I actually enjoy a well written S&J fic, but for some reason the idea of them getting married on the show really makes me nervous, but then again I'm starting to develop a twitch anytime someone mentions Sam with anyone lately.

        Sam & P-90 or Sam & Jello is about all I'm up for this season.
        i do NOT want them married on the show. they can mention it sure...but no, no, no, NO, NO wedding.

        imho, these writers are incapable of writing interpersonal relationships that don't end up looking more like a poorly written harlequin romance.

        and i'd ratehr have it not happen than have it be a farce

          at's opinion on ship seems to change with her audience and mood at the time. in one way, i think she likes(d) it, in another i think she didn't like the 'i'm nothing more than jack's chick' idea

          so i think maybe it's her personal feelings warring with what common sense is telling her is best for her character

            after hathor, singularity was on last night and, of course, i just had to watch it (las vegas and medium will keep) and i was struck again at how great of a job amanda did

            this whole struggling with her emotions bit. where she was determined to do what she had to do for her job...even though it was tearing her up inside to do it (leaving cassie in the bunker)

            and daniel was so sweet too. there to help, but just there. not being pushy or anything

              Oh god, no - no wedding ON the show. I joked about that in the "ask Joe" thread once, tongue in cheek, but I don't want to "SEE" that either. I just want it to have already happened and have it mentioned, or alluded to in canon.

                I absolutely think that it depends upon the audience. The shippers vs non-shippers is the biggest rivalry in television - no matter what medium. I also think that sometimes interviewers are *only* interested in asking those types of questions and not any questions about the character of Sam itself. Sam Carter came onto the scene as Sam, not half of a couple. Along the way, they gave her a backstory - family, former fiance. A smart interviewer would ask all about Sam herself and perhaps not about the Sam/Jack story.

                I am an unashamed Sam/Jack shipper. However, I never ever want to see a wedding on screen. Would I like to see a kiss between our Sam and Jack? Absolutely. And since we saw a morning after between Sam and Pete, I would like to get a glimpse, just a glimpse, of Sam and Jack. Otherwise, let's just see something like a shot of the inside of her locker - a picture of the two of them or his ball cap hanging on a hook.

                Sam Carter is identifiable as Sam - scientist, soldier, hero - not just as half of a coupling. That's what we love about her in the first place.

                  Woot! Sam/Janet fic from Ripple Effect! Well technically its AU Sam/Janet fic, but still!
                  LOL, oh goodie, then I get to post a short little Sam/Jack fic recommendation (post Ripple Effect), too! (Which is hilariously in character and could probably have happened on the show, too )

                  (Kate seems to have the same POV and Simha and I do about Sam and Jack in season nine ... what I love about her work is that she never ever gets maudlin or smarmy. And her sense of humor is frickin hilarious, she should write for the show. )

                    At least S/J do have some canon to back up the ship fantasies... it's the other ship pairings that frighten me because they have no backing whatsoever. I guess it just goes to prove that everyone sees something different in each episode and that a good deal of fans must really love Sam or why else would they waste their time shipping her to anyone. Or maybe fans just see a female character as nothing more than a romantic interest for the male[female/alien] characters on the show.

                          as an episode, it's rather clichey but...dang it's such fun!!

                          Fantastic Sam ep. Sam in charge, Sam saves the day, nice Sam/Janet moments. I love it.

                          Followed last night by Singularity. Another great Sam ep. This was when I really knew AT could act. That elevator scene gets me every single time.

                              I agree, Sky. What's missing is the subtle but confirmative icing on the cake to the end of S8 ... as you write later, just some celebratory moments of the assumed relationship: a phone call, a photo in a locker, some mention of his name and deep reflective pauses (as only AT can do so well) ... this is Stargate, not a soap, so I definitely would not want "the wedding of the century" paraded before my eyes. My shipper imagination can provide those more classic moments or take them to Vegas as Simha has so delightfully done. I just think the fans deserve more than they're getting in S9.

                              The classic romances of the movies came from the adage "less is more". The implied "what goes on behind the scenes" (30s and 40s) rather than the blatant romp in bed (any modern-day movie). The major sex organ is the brain. With intelligent writing, you can build such a wonderful romance ...

                              I have to admit, though ... the writers crossed a line in Chimera with the other guy. And then promptly placed Jack in bed with someone else! So, I'm not totally ruling out the "morning after" scene with our favorite couple (fair payback I suppose).

                              None of this should be written into Stargate though if it will detract from the sci-fi focus on Gate and team and what they do. The mission and the team are what fans expect each week. Still wouldn't mind getting a bit of that delicious icing for dessert though!

                                I love those two episodes. I love the multi-faceted Sam we get from the two episodes back to back.

                                I think Singularity was the episode where Sam became my favorite. I think I mentioned I saw Threads and Mobeius 1&2 first, since I only started really watching SG1 last year. Then I went and got all the first 7 seasons of DVDs, and watched the earlier seasons in order. That elevator scene did it for me. I still love Jack with a passion , but AT so sold Sam in that scene that she became my favorite.
