                      course, sam could be wearing a burlap sack and still look classy

                      she's Diana to Vala's Camilla
                      Great comparrison...but I like Vala...not nearly as mich as I love Sam...but she's still ok...I don't think much of Camilla and would never compare her to Diana!

                        Second, I do think Cassie would have liked the guy, because despite everything he was a nice guy, and he did love Sam even though I felt he resented her work a little.

                        And I do think that Sam cared about him deeply, and could forgive him following her (only because she understands that that is part of who he is). But I think when she said yes, she was so caught up in the need of something stable, she forgot to check is she really loved him that much. In the end, Sam wasn't all the nice to Pete either ya know. Which seemed ver OOC, but at the same time... I could see it in the abstract working.
                        Well said Deevil...but why do you think Sam was not so nice to Pete?
                        I had no problem with Pete but I'm glad it didn't go any further...he was definitely NOT her type!!

                            But she wanted him to be.

                            After her hallucinations in "Grace", Sam wanted a 'normal' boyfriend and a 'normal' relationship. I'd say that her subconscious was quashing any doubts she was having, both about Pete himself and about her feelings for him.

                                Wow. When I posted this link last Saturday afternoon, I had no idea it would catch on. Amanda was in 39th place and losing ground. I couldn't stand to see that happen, so I called in reinforcements. I was scared people would get upset, that they wouldn't appreciate me posting a link to a 'silly poll'. I thought a few votes would trickle in- but I was WRONG! In a good way, of course. Around 5 p.m. Saturday June 24th(central standard time) Amanda had maybe 2,500 votes, give or take. By 2 a.m. Saturday July 1st at the close of the poll, she had reached the 8th spot with almost 24,000 votes(23,993 to be exact).

                                Not long after the link was up, other fans posted it on other sites. Soon, not only were Samandans voting, was there as well as a host of other AT fans. We were coming together to support our girl.

                                I wonder if Amanda will ever know about the party we threw in her honor. And what a party it was! We had videos-many thanks to our VJs!!! We had guess the quote and even chatted using episode names. We talked about Amanda-when we first saw her and just generally how great she is-all while click click clicking away.

                                We were SO positive the whole time. We knew AT/SC would never dodge a challenge, and we weren't either. Amanda fans are some dedicated people! We had folks from all over the world-from Australia to Belgium to the UK to all across America and Canada-voting day and night for her. People went without sleep, recruited family and even neighbors, and voted on multiple computers within their homes(great exercise by the way). Mandy's cat was even on the verge of learning how to use a mouse!

                                AT is generous and so are her fans. We helped out other voters that needed a hand. How many of us knew who Lacuna Coil was before this week? And how many more people know about Amanda Tapping thanks to her fans' hard work?

                                Probably the most touching thing about the voting was how we reached out to RDA. We had made our goal, and realistically couldn't make the next place with only a few hours left. Some of us alternated votes, some posted links at RDA sites, some voted exclusively for RDA. At any rate, we stayed ahead and managed to give RDA the boost he needed. In the last 30 minutes we even bumped Michael Shanks up a notch. AT fans are giving, like Amanda herself!

                                So maybe Amanda didn't get #1, but you know what? Moving from 39th to 8th in such a short time was a far greater feat than those that placed above us, who had been sitting securely in their places for weeks. What an amazing show of love and devotion by AT fans! Not just any actress has such an amazing fan base- and the fan base is only as amazing as the actress. Her forum was a party 24/7-nowhere else I went had such constant fan support.

                                Sure, it was just a fun poll. TPTB might not ever see it and nothing may ever come out of it. That's too bad, really. We love Sam Carter the same, if not more, than we did 10 years ago. They should see we still cherish such a wonderful character, played by an equally amazing woman. This was such a morale booster and a great way to get the word out about Amanda! Next month I say we get her to #1! She deserves that spot-and I am being 100% honest about that. I have never seen a better actress...not in the movies and not on TV. She's top notch, classy, a gem, shall I keep going?

                                I want to take a moment to thank EVERYONE that voted. You didn’t have to, yet you spent your time and effort to do it. We probably have crooks in our necks and cramps in our fingers, but what a ride! Not only did we spend the last week promoting our favorite actress, but as AT fans, I think we grew closer. We all worked together towards a common goal. It was great fun, and I hope to see you around next month.

                                Amanda, we at Samanda-and all your fans-want you to know we love you! This wasn't much, but it was a small way to say thanks for all the time you've spent on the show, for what you've done for us. In the end, Lizlove said it best:

                                Changing the world one smile at a time...

                                Thanks Amanda.
