because I can

The other night, while grabbing a drink from the kitchen, while chatting with svmadelyn (may her internet connection stay true, because withdrawal was so not pretty for me. Her. Me. This is really about me. IT HURT), Child waylaid me to question Jack's feelings about Ianto if he was going to look at Gwen like that.

I ended up typing the entire thing to her, but I remember a small, warm feeling in the pit of my stomach, chased by blank horror when I realized he'd tricked me into a sex ed conversation. I also do not remember what I ended up saying--for those around at the time, you may remember how that one ended up with several people wondering if he'd end up building a nest in the backyard after I inadvertently mentioned eggs--but I'm pretty sure sex ed should not be a five second recital on "some men like other men and some men like women and some like both which is perfectly normal, please don't do this to me right now" while Child cackled in the background.

And back on medication. I remember this feeling. It's called being productive.

from thegrrrl2002 - john pics. so many john pics

For samdonne, since I'm not sure she wanders through the wilds of LJ very often to see. And well, pretty much for everyone who looks at John and thinks Please let the Cylons be real. Then I can have one of those. Which I do. Nightly. I am totally ready to collaborate. I just want one of this model. Thank you.

Also, good pics of John and Ronon together.

John Sheppard in Outcast, many pics, much pretty. God, much pretty.

Thank you to thegrrrl2002 for making my life that much better.

meta rec - repeat to yourself, it's just a show

Drive by meta rec, originally linked off my flist.

Repeat to Yourself, It's Just a Show by popfantastic:

Teaser:

But I am suggesting that talking about social and cultural issues in fandom educates me about how to understand, explore, and respond to them in other contexts. And I'm grateful to those who put in the mental and emotional energy to carry on these conversations, which are often frustrating at best and devastating at worst. So to say that it doesn't "do anything" or "accomplish anything" (in the offline world, in relation to "real-life" events) to talk about racism or misogyny in TV shows is not only beside the point, but also factually incorrect, at least as applied to this fangirl.

I'm still curious how much crossover there is between my RL and OL. RL does affect OL big time, but I've never actively tried to quantify what I bring from OL to RL either. Possibly because my fandom life is better documented, so to speak. I'm not sure if it's even quantifiable, to be honest, but I know it's there. I just don't know to what extent.

Anyway, fascinating post, and some of the comments are equally interesting.
