Gee, I wonder who saw this coming?

Stargate Universe has been cancelled after only two seasons

I guess Brad Wright and Joe Mallozi can go bury their faces in some humble pie now. They said 'if you don't like it, don't watch it'? Well, that's exactly what we did. SUCK ON THAT, you arrogant, fan-disrespecting jerks.

I normally wouldn't gloat because this obviously sucks for the actors and the fans who liked SGU, but after the condescending bullshit that the producers rained down on the Atlantis fans, I'm glad that their shiny new toy blew up in their smug faces.

Do not mess with fangirls. We are the ones who make you, and we are also the ones who can destroy you. Muah ha ha!

Being the naturally lazy person that I am, few things get me pissy enough to whine about it outside of this journal. But the latest news on the Stargate front bugged me enough to comment at GateWorld. And I like I said, I'm lazy, so I'll just express my feelings to my f-list by sharing the same rant I posted over there:

So, they're going to take everything that made Stargate fairly original among the sci-fi genre - the fact that it's NOT based in space, and using the GATE to travel to other worlds rather than a ship - toss it out the window, and become a hackneyed rip-off of a formula that's already been done to death? In a painfully transparent, pathetic and inevitably futile attempt to boost already reasonable ratings? Great plan there, guys. Really. Just awesome.

Am I the only one wondering just where the hell the STARGATE will fit into a supposedly Stargate show set on board a SPACESHIP? Or has the poor old gate gone the same way as we loyal fans? Suddenly out-dated and irrelevant?

And by the way, having a younger cast will not bring in a younger audience - the franchise as it was already brought in plenty of young people, because they loved the sci-fi genre. Young people who don't like sci-fi aren't going to suddenly tune in because it has a younger cast. Sci-fi shows will NEVER have the spectacular ratings of other TV show genres, because unfortunately, that is the nature of the sci-fi genre - it DOESN'T appeal to everyone. Trying to change this unchangeable fact is nothing but a kick in the face to those fans who HAVE been loyal and supportive enough to pump god-only-knows how much money into this franchise. And all in pursuit of the ficklest of audience demographics.

Brilliant, absolutely brilliant. You morons.

I know it will make absolutely no difference, but dammit, sometimes you just need to vent.

Hey look, I wrote SGA fic! I just couldn't let that bath comment go unnoticed ;o)

Title: Bath Time (McShep, PG)
Author: Erin
Word count: 3,000-ish
Summary: Missing scene from 5x03 ‘Broken Ties’. Rodney is determined to change John’s mind.
Disclaimer: Not mine, not for profit, yada, yada.

Bath Time )

Ugh. I am the only one who feels like that whole ep was just the writers slapping the majority of their fans in the face? I mean, I liked the plot (although I'm positive I've read the Pegasus-natives being immune to the sickness threatening the Earthlings angle at least twice in fanfic), but that ending... yeah. Why are they dragging the Katie Brown thing out? I do like her, but purely from a continuity angle - we haven't seen her since 'Sunday'. Where the hell has she been while Rodney's been going through all his issues since then?

On the plus side - John is a massive dork and I love him for it. Teyla and Ronon were their kick-ass best, and dear God how I want to pick up Zelenka and Lorne, and just squeeze them :D

SGA squee!

How much am I freakin' loving this new season of Stargate: Atlantis?! A whole lot more than I liked the first couple of episodes from last season that's for sure.

Spoiler Cut )

But the most shocking part of Ep2 for me? HOLY SHIT, TEYLA USED A CONTRACTION!!! SHE SAID "DON'T" INSTEAD OF "DO NOT"! Seriously, I had to rewind to make sure I wasn't hearing things - she said it in that scene with Ronon.
pride_of_erin: (SGA - Me and You by Beeej)
Dudes! Guess what showed up on my doorstep today? Stargate: Atlantis, Season 2 DVDs! *squeegasms*.
Granted, they've been available in Australia for about a month now, but I was holding off on getting them until I was sure they were identical to the US version, and not some crappy, watered-down edition, as is typical in my country. But no, they are the same, and they're all mine - yayz! :o)

My only complaint so far is that compared to the pack that Season 1 came in, this packaging is kind of crappy - why couldn't they have just stuck with what they had?

And before I forget again - I don't think I ever thanked [ profile] cheights for the virtual Xmas gifts she put on my profile page, so thank you! :o)
pride_of_erin: (Default)
First of all, thanks so much to everyone who sent me birthday wishes, especially to [ profile] cheights for the virtual balloons on my profile; and [ profile] maddiec24, who sent me a lovely card via snail mail - you didn't have to do that, sweetie! What a lovely surprise.

Secondly - after nearly two years in the Oz fandom, I have finally seen Season 666. Ironically enough, I finished watching the DVDs the day before SBS (Aussie TV channel), decided to get off their butts and air the freakin' final season. Anyhoo, I am now also of the opinion that Fontana lost his damn mind while writing that - it was like watching a completely different show. Shit, anything that can make me feel kind of sad when Omar fucking White dies cannot be the same show. I mean, come on. But I have made my peace with it and shall say no more.

Rambling on SGA mid-season finale )

Okey-dokey, I have also decided to do the friends-filtering thing from now on, so that I am not boring the non-fandom people on my f-list with fannish rambles, and nor am I swamping the Oz fans with all my SGA squee. Hopefully I've managed to get everyone on the right lists and not missed anyone. *crosses fingers*

OMG, I just watched the preview for A Dog's Breakfast on YouTube...

"Hello, my name is Erin and I am madly in love with the psychotic dork that is David Hewlett, and I wanna sex him so bad."

It needed to be said. *wanders off dazedly*
pride_of_erin: (John - Neck by Rojimouse)
Here's yet another example of how weird I am. I was looking at these pics on Joe Flanigan's site, and all I could think was, "Oh dear God, it's such a complete bloody shame that his oldest son looks exactly like his mother." Not that Joe's wife isn't a pretty woman, but jeez, to think that Joe reproduced and none of those astoundingly hot genes got passed on - it's just such a tragic waste!

I know if I ever reproduced with an amazingly handsome man, I'd be pissed as hell if the spawn looked exactly like me (not to mention feel incredibly sorry for it.) Oh, well - I haven't seen pics of Joe's younger son, hopefully he looks more like Daddy.

Uh... hi

Oh dear, let me apologise (yet again!) for my insane, borderline alcoholic, drunken blathering. I won't bore you with the aftermath, just know that I have calmed down and am A-OK. And thank you to the people who left me supportive comments, {{hugs}}.

Okay, enough of that shit, let's get back to fun fannish stuff - I have a question for the Oz peeps: Does anyone know why Oz seems to have been taken off the [ profile] crack_van list? Did they decide to just kick us off or did somebody actually go and say 'don't bother with us, there's not much left to rec anymore'?

And are all the SGA peeps reading Crimes Against Humanity by [ profile] seperis? It's Evil!Atlantis, and they're all psychotic killers in a max security prison - sound familiar? *g*. And it is so much better than you could ever think that slightly ridiculous premise could be - I'm loving it! And John and Rodney as the ultimate ego-maniacal world-destroyers are distubingly hot.

I've also been re-watching the entirety of Atlantis seasons 1 and 2 - it's a lot of fun picking out the continuity errors in the scripts. For instance, in '38 Minutes', Grodin tells them that closing the bulkhead door between the forward and rear sections of the jumper won't save them, because, "The atmosphere will leak like a sieve." Which implies that the bulkhead isn't airtight. So why was it suddenly airtight enough to launch McKay into space in 'Siege 1', and again to keep the water out in 'Grace Under Pressure'? He he - somebody screwed up with that one, unless my logic is completely off.

*re-reads last paragraph*. Wow, I appear to have turned into the ultimate sci-fi nerd - my old man would be so proud.

Hey, to all my fellow SGA peeps out there -

What is up with this new podcast/podfic/podslash/whateva thing? Why has it suddenly popped up and what exactly is the point of it? I don't need to listen to a recording of writers reading their fanfics when I can just you know, read them myself - plus it's weird. Fics usually contain sex scenes - maybe I'm just prudish, but I really don't want to hear sex scenes read out loud. Just... no.

So yeah, this is me just totally not getting it. Do you guys get it?

Okay, so I just finished downloading and watching 'The Long Goodbye'. And I just have to say:

OMG, JOHN AND RODNEY ARE SO TOTALLY BOYFRIENDS, AND RODNEY IS SO JEALOUSSSSS. Seriously, did you see the look on his face when spoilers )
pride_of_erin: (Yeah Baby by 11nine73)
So, the SGA peeps will all agree that it's totally not lame that I've watched the McKay/Carter kissing scene from 'Grace Under Pressure' like 20-ish times, and have imagined Sheppard in Carter's place at for least 75% of those times, right? Right. Didn't think so. BTW, that bit where a shirtless Sam rises up out of the water like a siren? Putting a shirtless John in her place for that particular shot makes me 57 different kinds of happy.

I'll be in my bunk.

(PS. David Hewlett was nothing short of phenomenal in this ep - just freakin' amazing).
pride_of_erin: (Hardly Breathe by Monanotlisa)
EEEEeeee!!!! Today has been one of the most happy-making days of my life for three reasons:

1. I finally graduated! As of today, I hold a Bachelor of Teaching in Early Childhood. I graduated from the number 1 university in the country, and I am the first person in my family to get a degree. Hell, I was the first person in my family to finish high school. So, I'm feeling pretty damn pleased with myself.

Obligatory cap-and-gown pics of me )

2. I found out I got that job!!! It was my very first interview ever and I got it! (Incidentally, Evil Brother is both jealous and pissed, because he's been for 7 interviews recently and got fuck all - yay!) So anyway, as of January 9, I am a head teacher in a pre-school/long day care centre - I will manage my own classroom, and have minions assistants to do my bidding help me. I never thought I'd get a job right off the bat - I was so excited, I madly phoned everyone to tell them. Boo yah!!! I rock. Oh yeah, baby, I rock so hard right now. *shakes booty in excitement*

3. I received a package from [ profile] maverick4oz. Commence fannish squeeing. SQUEEEEEEEE!!!!!! Oh my God, Mav, you are the best, thank you, thank you, thank you!!! I am now in possession of SGA Season 2 eps, when Season 2 doesn't air here until next year (yay!!), as well as 'Thought Crimes' and 'Traders' (OMG, I finally get to see the 'love gulps'!) and some other things I haven't had a chance to look at yet because of my busy day. I also got SGA trading cards and Mav-made magnets and key-chains (which I am so impressed and in love with), and a gay smut address book which cracks me up. Hugs and smooches to you Mav - you totally made Christmas come early for me, and it's definitely the best present I'll get. You are wonderful - from the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU!!!!! :-D

And all this in just one day! I love my life.

ETA: Fixed the pic screw up, you should be able to see them now.

Here are a few things that piss me off:

1. Idiots who think it's incredibly funny to unplug the modem in the living room, while I'm on the Internet on the laptop in my bedroom - especially when I'm in the middle of chatting on Messenger, thus making me look like a rude bitch who just signs off in the middle of a conversation.

2. The fact that David Hewlett is only going to be a 45 minute drive away from me in 2 weeks and I can't go see him because no-one I know in RL likes SGA and I refuse to go to a convention by myself, WAAAAAAAAAHHHHHH!!! And the fact that I could have gotten one of my sisters to go with me if only Joe Flanigan would be there. But no, because Woobie's Erect-Haired Friend has deigned not to grace us with his presence, I am missing said Woobie (Woooooooobie! Waaaaaaaah!), plus Carson and Zelenka, who I also love.

I have literally been sitting and whimpering for about an hour.

3. Fanfic writers who use the term 'alot'. God-fucking-dammit, 'alot' is not a word. Not even 'alittle'.
pride_of_erin: (Default)
Okay, time to discuss smut in order to get my mind off the fact that I spent a half hour this afternoon cleaning shit off a three-year-old child who'd some how managed to smear it over virtually his entire body - ah, the joys of Early Childhood teaching. Why did I want this job again?

Anyhoo, on to the smut - recently, I've been pondering the very important and philosophical topic of topping. Namely, who should be doing the topping. Now this has become a question for me, in light of all the SGA fic I've read in recent months. Oz was my first ever fandom, and when it comes to smut in Oz fic, I really don't have a preference either way - Chris topping, Toby topping, it's all good. Of course I've always liked the smut scenes where the boys switch off and each have a turn the best, but either way is just fine with me. So I assumed that I would be like that with any fandom slash pairing I got obsessed with. But SGA has proved I'm not.

When it comes to SGA fic, I am a Rodney-on-top girl all the way. I have no idea why this is. Perhaps because the very first one I ever read had Rodney topping, but I don't think so. It's really quite strange, and very annoying because I can't figure out why I feel this way. Don't get me wrong - I enjoy John-on-top fics just fine, but there's always a moment when a voice in my head says, 'Oh damn, why couldn't they have put Rodney on top?' before I get too immersed in the *guh* to care.

So now I'm curious - what 'topping' do my Oz and SGA peeps prefer on their B/K and/or McShep 'desserts'? Please leave me a comment so I can satisfy my curiosity.
