I've been watching Stargate Atlantis (the one where they're underwater. Or I think they're underwater but bits of the city aren't? Or they're totally above water but surrounded by it? I don't actually know. But there's water and a city and spaceships. Plus aliens that eat people). I am so ashamed (so many reasons for this, but mainly it's because the show is not very good but I will always watch it when it's on) but I have started to ship Sheppard and Teyla. Apparently, this is the wrong thing to do because apparently he and the annoying scientist guy, McKay, are having it off non-stop according to fandom. AND AFTER MY HORRIFIC ENCOUNTER WITH THE FLOWERY PROSE OF STARGATE: THE ORIGINAL SHOW SLASH FANFICTION I FEAR WHAT IT MIGHT BE LIKE. Some of it is probably great, but given how awe-inspiringly purple the prose of the O'Neill/Daniel* stuff was I refuse to read it.

* It's not the slash I mind, it's turning two adult men into 14 year old teenagers who probably write depressed poetry in their diaries before taking emo pictures of themselves for their facebook that is objectionable. Even worse when people rec it as being 'totally in character.' HOW??? HAVE YOU EVER SEEN THE SHOW????

ETA! Oh and also in completely random stuff:
1. I watched Doctor Who. I hope Donna slaps Ten in the next episode because that never gets old.

2. Hong Gong Dil is awesome. I love them all and expect emo prince to expire from his melancholy soon.

My Sam/Jack and your Teyla/Sheppard(maybe they won't feel so awkward in later seasons...S1 didn't seem sure if it wanted that or Weir/Sheppard) and go on a double date and the boys can talk about girls and hope they aren't overheard while Sam and Teyla talk about how they are far more awesome than everything else in the Stargate universe combined.

Yes. But together they would probably take over the universe and rule as joint empresses for ever and ever. Hey, I'd watch that episode!

Yes, the vast majority of SGA fandom does ship Sheppard/McKay. It's very hard to try and get into that fandom. Therefore I dipped my pinky in and I'm still not sure if I really got it back.

I like the Sheppard and Teyla friendship, I like how close they are and I cannot ship them.

I, alas, also cannot ship Sheppard with McKay. One part because I see no "romantic chemisty" between them and because they make me think of brothers. And I don't do incest.

And you know? It makes me insanely happy that you called McKay "the annoying scientist guy" because I swear I thought I was the only one that thought that, I can't stand him half the time.

Blah, feels like a pointless comment. I apologize.

McKay IS "the annoying scientist guy." I mean...it's half his character. Actually, I'm not sure he's incredibly popular among my friends in general. (Personally, he amuses me and I like his crush on Sam, but half the time, I want to strangle him.)

I think I'm lucky in that most of the SG1/SGA fandom I've encountered were people I already knew who are also fans of the shows.

I can't ship Sheppard with McKay because I think Sheppard would shoot him after 10 minutes based on what I've seen. I don't mind him being annoying because at least they signal that he is supposed to be the irritating comic relief. But I wouldn't wish him as a romantic partner on anyone, let alone someone with hearing.

All I know about Stargate Atlantis is that Token Ethnic Guy is EXTREMELY HOT.

From: [identity profile] lesbiassparrow.livejournal.com
Token ethnic guy is very hot. But all they seem to have him do is stand in the background and be smoking hot. While I have no objections to this at times, it does seem to be a waste of the character. I bet he could be equally hot with a plot as well!

Back when I actually read a bit of fanfic, I'd never find any for the couples I liked because they were always unconventional! I pretty much never ship a show's idiotic OTP because I get so tired of the writers cramming down the my throat, like they're the end-all, be-all of fuckin' couples!

I veer all over the place, though I do have a talent for picking doomed relationships which is very annoying. It would be nice if sometimes the couples ended up with each other.

You take that back about my hair twin! In ep 9 HE'S SMILING ALL OVER THE PLACE. It is vaguely unsettling.

I bet it doesn't last. I think his hair is some sort of emo producing mechanism that means he will always be mopey.

I have read tennis slash (I don't recommend that) that turns these athletes into flouncing girls who burst into tears every 15 minutes. Swear to God, this story had them crying all over each other every few paragraphs. Athletes!

I once saw a hockey community that was entirely filled with stories like that. It scared me so very, very much.

So far I sort of like his emoness thus far. Especially with the added touch of him being Calixa's hair twin.

Oh man, I hate McKay and am totally baffled by the fannish response to him. That said, at lot of the BNF fic is actually very good. I prefer Sheppard/Ronon myself, mostly because I find them both very, very hot. (And also, since many writers go from Token Ethnic Guy-->not articulate, there's less with the teenage girl weepiness and more with grunts and sexxin'.)

From: [identity profile] lesbiassparrow.livejournal.com
I don't mind him as I like that he's written to be annoying but as a romantic partner he would be impossible. And as a romantic partner for Sheppard - well, I think Sheppard would shoot him dead after the first ten minutes.

Ronon I can see better, though only in the time honoured 'the aliens made us do it' scenario. Or a threesome with Teyla.

But - does he ever more than 2 lines? He usually just seems to stand there being hot in the background. Or runs around being fine. But while those are admirable things, it's not much for character development.

I loved that show in season 1. Then I hated Sheppard/Teyla with the power of a thousand suns it being so obvious. But then I have to admit to bias being a Sheppard/Weir shipper. But that was in the days when being a S/W shipper was fun, there were few of us and we hadn't got the "entitlement" brigage on board.

However, that's all in the past and I quite like S/T friendship now and I don't ship anyone.

I believe S/McKay fanfic was responsible for the quote:

"soggy but loving anus"

I have realised that I am probably watching season 3 of the show. In which Weir doesn't really appear very much so I don't really know anything about her character. I think she and Ronon have about the same number of lines, which is to say about 2 an episode.

And as for the glimpse you have given me into Rodney and Sheppard fanfiction... The horror, the horror! And then more horror.

Vast portions of my f-list adore McKay; M. and I found him so annoying that we only watched the show once. Oh well.

From: [identity profile] lesbiassparrow.livejournal.com
I don't hate him, but I do find him annoying. It's softened because I think I'm supposed to find him irritating but I still can't see why anyone would want to inflict him on someone in a romantic relationship.
