    Indeed.

    Not for that fanfic. I'm writing with someone else and we haven't decided whether to publish it at this time. I'll post in the fanfic section if we decide to do so.

    This article looked like a "pre-Tongal" advertisment. One more month and we will know much more.

    A few quotes from the article...

    Don’t get me wrong — the whims of fandom should not impact the general direction of the franchise. But their intelligence and aptitude must not be ignored.
    Oh the whims of the fandom should be firmly ignored at all times... (including my own)

    We will pursue our whims in our own creations, far away from official business, where we can be as whimsical as we want to be. In our own sandbox.

    My ultimate hope is that Stargate Command evolves into a platform that not only provides an extensive library of Stargate content, but also a sophisticated method for fans to have a greater impact on the franchise itself. This current iteration Stargate Command was an excellent start — but regional restrictions and technical difficulties have so far impaired its endless potential.
    Obviously love the bolded line which is a sign that at least someone, other than a few of us, realize that the SGC's shortcomings as a true community like Gateworld are its limited access. There are literally almost no stargate fans from outside of the allowed regions.

    My ultimate suggestion to MGM: Think of Stargate like a luxury resort...
    ...they already do, considering there are only a few select countries with access to the SGC.

    I mean, someone on twitter literally called it a perk that I had no privilege to.

    My hope for the franchise’s next chapter is a more transparent, multi-faceted, and engaging community where fans can share their love of the Stargate like never before. And maybe, just maybe, Stargate can reach the heights we’ve always known it can.
    If it remains closed to half the community, it will never go back to what it once was, nor will it attract new viewers.

    But if MGM is willing to expand and listen, and learn and invest, then maybe the above is possible.

    Probably we will get a more announcement comes in December on whatever wherever con.

    But since the SG:C first year is ending in September, I believe they will announce at least the two Jaffa stories by Chris Judge.

    Just I don't want to be fooled again. You know... They raise our hopes, but then nothing happens again. And again. And again. So I don't expect anything now, then I can be surprised positively.

    Likewise, enough of these teasers.

    By believing they'll announce the Jaffa stories, you are expecting something... so you'll end up disappointed again if they don't.

    You know when your heart and your mind play a game against each other.
