    Isn't that the truth, though?

    I worked for Marion Zimmer Bradley (for a very brief time) when she was starting up her magazine many years ago, and she swore that there was something to the Jungian concept of a collective consciousness (although I don't think she used that terminology). She said that ideas seemed to cycle; one month she'd get a hundred story submissions with the same theme, and the next month she'd get a hundred stories with a different theme. She said it was like everyone was having the same epiphany for story ideas at the same time. I've heard other fiction editors talk about similar phenomena, as well.

    I think true originality is hard to come by, although some of the writers on this list don't seem to have much trouble with it, which is why I admire them so much.

          what an incredibly small world. I once subbed something to her. got refused, but that's not unexpected.
          Where in the World is George Hammond?

            I was really lucky in that she bought four of my stories over the years. Of course, it probably helped that she knew me. I haven't sold anything since.

                    Correct, Sky! I thought it was cool to get a shot of Sam 'through Replicator eyes'... something different...

                    LOL, AD! Great caption... I can just hear Sam's exasperated, yet slightly amused, tone of voice, too!

                          Ahah! See AstroG, that red thing that Teal'c's holding is the thermographic sensor thing, and it's why he gave his P-90 to Carter

                          Comment


                            dont they look cute together???

                            even keeping it gen, i love the sam and teal'c friendship issues

                            AT and CJ have done such a good job with the few scenes they get together

                            I sorta see tealc as the only one she can really confide in

                            jack, well jack's her boss. gotta keep that distance and propriety

                            daniel, she's daniel's friend, and daniel's boss. so while they do conspire together on projects, i see her keeping a bit of a distance

                            jonas, she was jonas's big sister in a awy. i think she loved teasing him and i really saw her relax around him

                            but teal'c..well yes, she is teal'c's boss...but also t-man does tend to go off and do his own thing, even does it to jack. i think teal'c respects her immensely and is very much her big brother...very big

                                Here are links to the first and second parts of the MGM interview:

                                MGM Tapping Interview Part 1
                                transcript for part 1 transcribed and posted by Morjana

                                MGM Tapping Interview Part 2

                                A couple of excerpts:

                                AT: [Sam's] softened... she started out very didactic, very out to prove herself, in a not so accessible way, I think that she put up a lot of walls, because she's, you know, 'I am a woman and I can do just as well as you can', as oppposed to just settling back and saying 'just see what I'm capable of'... and the writers and producers, to their great credit, have warmed her up. She now has a sense of humor, she's a lot softer, she's not afraid of her femininity so much....

                                As near as I can tell, AT's feelings about this must pretty much stem from that COTG briefing room scene... the 'reproductive organs' spiel, followed by the playing with dolls (Matt Mason), and the challenge to an arm wrestle.... Because after that first episode, I don't think that Sam came across as outspoken and 'in your face' about female equality. In fact, I've been impressed with how the main approach has been one of 'she's just one of the team'. (Well, until we get to Seasons 7 and 8).

                                ---------

                                I really like how AT always emphasizes that she'd like to see more team episodes and more stories that feature the interactions between the members of the team. Go AT!

                                -------


                                AT: And she is now a Colonel, she's a Lt. Col., and we've seen her in command and I'd like to see more of that. I'd like to see her expand on that, you know, see her plan missions and see her follow them through, that kind of thing.

                                All I can say is... I agree! Wholeheartedly! Sam in command!

                                ------------

                                As was stated on another thread, AT sounds congested - I think she had a cold... and she sounds tired... to be honest, she sounds like she's moving at what I'd call a 'normal pace for the rest of us' instead of the normal, bouncy and energetic AT pace. And she doesn't give a lot of big smiles... she looks pretty drained, and I think she needed to spend a couple of days just resting and recuperating. Very nice of her to sit for this interview.
