          I've started writing a Sam fic and I've just posted the teaser
          http://www.fanfiction.net/s/3400820/1/ Although it says S/J and D/V on it, I don't actually know how far I plan on taking that one... I just have a particular story to tell.

          End of self promotion, although not necessarily shameless.

          ETA: That was my 500th post. It's only taken like 2 to 3 years.
          Quality over quantity
          MORE? Of course--soon! SOunds like a great start.

                      afraid not. Wish i could, but there's just not enough time, not to mention that pesky money issue

                            The following post has a risk of 1 -in- 1 of being OT. Thus, it is spoiled.

                            Now that is scary! 1 -in- 45,000? Pretty high compared to other risks of death... Looks like Apophis will get me before the long arm of the law (legal execution).

                            Yet another thing to add to my perfectly reasonable (not in any way exhaustive) worry list:

                            Fate of coral reefs and the entire ocean ecosystem. (and thus the oxygen we seem to need)
                            Future for my daughter.
                            World war.

                              The Samanda thread... I have had so much fun here since I joined last year! I'm gutted that I won't be able to hang out as much anymore.

                              Keep having fun, being supportive and loving, throwing in the odd off colour comment... all the things that make this thread special.

                              Oh, and PM me if you want my mailing address. Please send me postcards from around the world!

                              Lots of love, Eileen

                              Spoiler:
                              1.)
                              Carter. She was one of the very, very few female lead characters who was allowed to be a strong, positive female lead without being just the flunky sidekick to the lead alpha male.

                              She was a scientist who wasn't a geek (that stereotype is *waaaay* too overdone in the media. Not all of us trip over our shoelaces)

                              She was a competent female soldier without coming across as butch or a bit$h nor a feminist ball-buster.

                              She was nice. That's definitely important to me. And, I think it's AT's natural demeanor that created this side of Sam.




                              6.) What friendship dynamic is your favorite?

                              The whole team dymanic. Love the stories that pull the original team together, and that draw on the strengths of all of the four original members of the team.

                              10.) What's your favorite kind of Sam (e.g. Soldier Sam, Science Sam, Pilot Sam, etc.)?

                              I loved them all - and most enjoyed how superbly AT pulled it off for Carter to have so many wonderful facets to her character and still come across as a stable, well-rounded, well-adjusted woman.

                              My favorite Sam is Solidly-Competent, Non-Arrogant Sam.
                              You-Can-Count-On-Me Sam


                              Also really enjoyed the bright, enthusiastic Sam of the early seasons.
                              Loved how it came across as a driving enthusiasm and exuberance for life.
                              Loved how it came across as a thirst for exploration.


                              But Pilot!Sam.... oooo... that just gives me a grin that goes from ear to ear and can't be wiped off right away. Jet jockey is *so* a male-dominated role. Usually the lead alpha male... so it's just *uber* cool when Carter is shown in the cockpit (front seat, please!)


                              Although it certainly does sound as if Carter/AT comes out a bit better in the second half of Season 10. [/SIZE][/spoilers]
                              YAY! Astro is playing!

                              YAY! Poz is here, too!
