Since I am a newbie here, let me introduce myself. It was a bit over two years ago since I discovered Stargate, specifically SG-1. By the halfway point in the show, where something particularly major happened to one of the team members, I realized I was hooked. There was something about this show, that I absolutely loved. Since then, I have spent hours rewatching the show and writing yet unpublished fan fiction. Through all that, I learned so much, mostly about myself, but other topics as well. Stories have power. They have the power to impact us in a way, I am not sure anything else can. It is one of the reasons I love storytelling. Is Stargate perfect? Nope, not by a long shot. But it was a comment here, that made me realize you can love something, or someone even if you don't like every aspect. Here, two years later, I can say, I love the show for what it is, in all its messiness, and imperfections.
We all though have our own lenses. Our perspectives. That brings me the question in the title and the subject of this thread. I would love to hear about what you love. What hooked you into stargate. My perspective will probably be different. But does that matter? I love hearing someone else’s perspective. Often I learn from it. Perhaps something new about whatever they are talking about, or perhaps something about the person themselves.
So come, talk my ear off. Tell me what you love about stargate. Tell me what drew you into the show, and what made you stay with it. Was there something about the world that sparked your imagination? Was it the characters, or a particular one you loved and resonated with you? Was there a particular story, that touched your heart in a way, that surprised you, and taught you something new? Maybe there is more than one reason. Whatever drew you into the story, I’d love to hear it!
