I've just realise something....
My parents are called Liz and John...
I'm SURE it's a sign!

In many ways the worst thing they could do, is introduce it, and then pull back like they did with Sam and Jack. However, it's early days, and some of us are having fun projecting...
It is! Stay and play!!!Originally Posted by sueKay
I think I will!Originally Posted by astronomicalchick
Now, being very new to Atlantis, and still being devoted to SG1...I am unspoiled for Atlantis (apart from knowing Poisoning the Well's a Beckett ep )
What's gonna happen to our Atlantis shippy twosome????
Go on...Indulge me!
Major Fischer already directed you to a few episodes which haven't aired in the UK, but I'd like to second "The Eye". I explained a few scenes in some detail, along with pictures, here. After that, Liv and I did discuss how some of Sheppard's actions could have been the same for other members of the expedition, but we were agreed that it was hard to interpret the last scene in any other light.Originally Posted by aeromathlete
Well, if you really want to know... "The Eye"Originally Posted by sueKaySpoiler:
Glad to see you've joined the dark side, Sue.
I like those odds!!!Originally Posted by astronomicalchick
I think I can deal with that...after six episodes, I can already see myself being a Sheppard/Weir shipper, so I suppose that's a good start.
In any case, I think you're right that they will need to form a close relationship because of their respective roles, so for the moment at least, I'm quite happy to watch that develop.
I don't know if that really makes me a shipper but I'm heading in the right direction!!
Hello everyone i am new to the gateworld forum and i just wanted to say that i cant wait to see if a John/Liz ship develops. I really hope it does i really like it. I have to agree with alot of the post their are thes little things that you might notice in some of the episodes that support the ship

No! I'm not going to do it! I'm not going to get dragged into shipping for another doomed romance! I'm sure the ole' 'It wouldn't be right for us as Commander and 2IC to get together' would be dragged out again for these two, even if their dynamic *is* the reverse of S/J... and there aren't, techncially any *regs* issues.
Lalalalala!! *Fingers in ears...*
It's too late. I've not even seen an episode of Atlantis yet and I've been converted by the pictures in people's sigs!!
Even if there were regs, and there is not, i would just loved to know how they would be court masherled in another galaxy. I would love to know how u breach the subject, "Yes, mama you are being put on trail a hundred bazillian miles away for disregading regs which dont exist" yea i bet that would fly well
See, they're just a cute couple!
Yay, another one comes over...Originally Posted by Lunar
You haven't seen an ep yet?
How did I get converted? Watched Rising... then there was some discussion on the Sam/Jack thread, then I started thunking for Sheppard and then suddenly Weir/Shep just struck me... aha I remember, the end of 38 minutes!!!
((((((((((((Lunar))))))))))), I tried to find a pic of Fran for your birthday a week or so ago and couldn't, then I seemed to have missed the boat. Hope you had a good one...
I just got told about this thread so I decided to pop over and read. Not sure if I'm convinced they're couple material. But I do enjoy their scenes together. I really hated WEIR at first but she's grown on me and I enjoy the chemistry between her and John.
Weir comes across as older than John, to me. And looks it..to me. But I rather like that as I'm the OLDER WOMAN to my hubby! LOL
That would actually be interesting to see. So I'll be looking out for this couple. Just to see what happens. I don't actually ship. Learned not to long ago. I just enjoy my faves *John is my fave in SGA* with whomever.
But I can see Weir/Shep working at some level. Interesting reading this thread. And lovely pictures.
Welcome aboard Merlin7. To me Liz and John seem to me to be about the same age, mid-thirties.
Thanks. Nice thread.Originally Posted by Watters87
John just looks younger than that to me. Until I read the bio for Shep and learned how old Joe really was. I thought he was MAYBE 30. Sometimes he seems/looks a bit older. But he's aging really well.
I thought Weir was like in her early 40's. Hubby was not so kind! LOL
But I still really like that idea myself. Older woman/younger man. Even if it's just by a year or two. I'm tired of the same old Older guy with the hot chick. I see John as the HOT ONE in this pairing! LOL
Weir's cannon age is 37... which I personally think is rather unrealistic, but it places her and John the same age. IMDB doesn't have TH's age on it.
I find it unrealistic as well. LOLOriginally Posted by Major Fischer
Hi Guys ,
I'll be posting here when I get to know the show a bit more ..still need to see a few more episodes but Sheppard is hot ..that's for sure so I expect Weir to be following him around a lot.
...and it's strange that ...except for Liv and Merlin .....I recognize all the screen names from the Sam and Jack shipper thread on the Weir and Sheppard ship thread ..How is that possible ??!!!!
Anyway ...Welcome to LIV to a shipper thread and may be Merlin when he/She decided .
Yeah, realistically, Weir would be at least ten years older. And Sheppard probably would be too, come to that. But I happen to like Joe Flanigan just like he is, so...
