I missed an ep, didn't I? Cause. Wow. That totally hit from a right field on the far side of Jupiter.

This is not for the ones who liked it. I have nothing against you, but seriously, this is not the happy porny QAF zone. Spoilers.



I don't even have *words*. Did someone on the writing staff get very high and completely forget seasons two and three? No? Then why are we repeating it? This is the definitive reason why you shouldn't do drugs. Cause it makes you *stupid*.

I want to clarify. Just in case there's any uncertainty.

1.) Justin wants a house, a dog, a picket fence, and a *family*. *blank look* When, in the history of their relationship, has Justin even--was the boy not just FUCKING HIS WAY THROUGH CALIFORNIA? Oh my God, Justin is going to so realize he's het and get married, which is really the only way this storyline could possibly make sense.

Leaving the fact that Justin has been invaded by the Suburban Pod Syndrome...

He. Thought. He. Could. Get. These. Things. With. *BRIAN*

Oh my God. He has mad cow disease. That accounts for *so much*. It's like--no. I can't continue here. The Mindcontrol Device being used on Justin needs to be deactivated now. We have *done this before*. And back when Justin was All Monogamy, All the Time? I *still* don't remember anything *close* to him being interested in Small Children, a home garden, and wallpaper.

This is only going to get worse, isn't it? Oh God, don't tell me, I want to traumatize myself.

*breathes into paper bag*

2.) Brian is feeling more insecure than usual.

Not just his usual neuroticity. He has, in fact, achieved levels as yet unseen in the wild. This could be an *entirely new species of humanity*. A scary one. And I say this as a Brian apologist of the first degree--Brian, you officially have scared me. It's like they took his season one issues and freaking archetyped them to rampantly inhuman levels. Brian crossed that nebulous line between self-absorbed but lovable and into balls out crazy with a side of dear God that's creepy, garnished with a hearty what the fuck. I have to ask. What the *fuck*?

Also, the blond was NOT HOT.

And third--Brian, by my count, you've been turned down at least three times, not including Justin's frequent later second season headaches, and all of those were in teh first season. I can't remmber if it happened in the second. But I am sure that occasionally, yes, your marvelousness does not turn everyone on.

Oh God, I need a tranquilizer.

3.) Hunter is my new favorite. Yes, I have joined the ranks of the crack-riddled crazy. Oh man. He plays a angsty and justifiably scarred yet amazingly sympathetic and sweet teenager so. Damn. Well. You, Hunter, are my new OTC. Cause Brian has mad cow disease and so does Justin. You are my only hope.

4.) Weird Thoughts Had While Watching.

a.) Regarding Justin saying a radioactive mutation--thought of Brian coming home and wondring why Justin keeps plying him with bright green radioactive shakes. Drinks them anyway--did I mention that they are both crazy so will do stuff like this? It all goes downhill from there.

b.) Michael's hysterics have got to come down a notch. Except for the entire baby-custody thing--oh those wonderful days of yore, when the custody thing was on and entertained me *so much*--you have come a long way from Mr WhineyHystericalPants.

Okay, I'm done. Yeah. Just--needed to vent. Yes. Good. Whee! Love my show! Excpet right now? Everyone with mad-cow disease.

LMAO at your comments, and you are SO dead-on! One question: are you a spoiler virgin? Just wondering how much I can say here.

*eyes you, tempted, then restrains*

No, I have a horrible feeling this will get worse, and I have firmly decided to suffer while, not before. It will jsut make it easier while I moon over Sheppard from SGA. He is my happy right now. Oh yes, he is.

Speaking as someone who gave up on QAF US after one season....


Here, have some happy. =)

*eyes narrow dangerously*

You and astolat and cesperanza have me *saving stories* to re-read *again* after I see the show and can completely appreciate the oh dear God they are funness. And Rodney grows on me. It's not easy. Consdiering I know none of these characters and it *is* being re-run as we speak, right? Right. Good. DVR set.

And this? Is so totally unfair you have no idea.

By the way, feedback, since otherwise I will never remember to do it...

1.) 20,00 Leagues Under the Sea (Give or Take) - I can't even count the ways I love this, so I won't. But I will never, ever see the sucker-type fish in my aquarium and not imagine it giving Sheppard mouth to mouth while singing Under the Sea from The Little Mermaid as they go to the surface, surrounded by other suckerfish in harmony. Also, hot. But also, the suckerfish. That rocked. Yes.

2.) Relative Positions - considering I'm at below zero knowlege of any of the canon, it was especially beloved because it gave me some marvelous basis for the characters. It was a *lovely* conversation.

3.) Lost - OMG AN EP OF STARGATE SG-1 I'VE SEEN! Yes, that was *tremendously exciting*. Also, creepy as hell, but in a good, positive way. So yay! Fic!

But yes, for the rest of my life, until I'm on my deathbed, I will visualize a squadron of suckerfish from my aquarium making out with Sheppard to Under the Sea. Seriously. This could get really creepy, yet never stops being funny. Huh.

Oh YAY! You are being indoctrinated into SGA. I am so happy. Have I told you about compartmental syndrome yet?

And I can't hear what you are saying about Brian and Justin. In my world it is the end of Season 3 forever and ever.

Oh. OK, then. *whistles innocently*

A show all about Hunter. Seriously... I'd watch it. Because right now, everyone else on that show is on *crack*.

I like your mad cow disease theory... makes a hell of a lot of sense.

Hunter is fabulous. I want to give everyone else anti-psychotics. Badly.

*worries fingernail*

Poor Hunter... stuck with all the crazies.

People are over the moon over Gale's performance, but Harris is kicking but and taking hostages.

I lvoe your icon. So. Much.

sykosamiam
And even though I have to be up by 5:30am, I am looking for decent Hunter caps to make icons.

You know, I get that Justin wants all those things. Just...where has he been the last few years?? If he was saying something like, "blah blah blah, every now and then I realize what I'll be missing, blah blah blah" I could totally get on board. But when he's all, "You gave me a dresser drawer, I thought that meant something to you!" I just start thinking that I won't even care if they break up. That's what people do when they want different things.

I just think that cowlip is handling this all wrong. I've always believed that Justin was, for the most part, trying to be cool with the kind of relationship Brian wanted when he wasn't cool with it at all. I'd like to see Justin make a mature decision to go his own way based on having certain life goals that won't be met if he stays where he is. I'd like them to address that while they love (or whatever) each other, it's not fair of either of them to remain in a relationship that isn't fulfilling to both of them. Instead, the writers have turned Justin into a whiney bitch. Again.

See, in season two, his dissatisfaction made *sense*, and they built up well enough, to me, to see the megaton issues coming. Or at least, ocnsidering I watched spoiled, i could see the line of descent. Here--its' like, everything's fine, then Justin wants a house and kids. That just--came out of nowhere. Completely. I am totally fine wiht Justin realizing that he wants more. Just, I'd like to see *when* he started wanting more, not just have it dropped on me like this. In short, um, I'm agreeing with you. Yes.

To keep from just pasting your second paragraph and then nodding after, I'll do it short and say, what you said, with a nod. Yes.

So true!

Loved Hunter more this year than ever before...

Yes, Hunter is *amazing*, and my God, did I not see that coming. Whee! Go Hunter!111

I love you. ♥

I also totally agree with you.

I can't remmber if it happened in the second. But I am sure that occasionally, yes, your marvelousness does not turn everyone on.

That was one of the things that really bothered me...wtf people? That was not the first, nor will be the last time that Brian is rejected by someone... make him react like that it's just extremely stupid.

Also, he got rejected in S3 too, remember when he was drinking all alone at woodies (I think it was 301)? He was teh hotness there... perfect clothes, perfect hair, but he still got rejected, and it's not like he became, as you so nicely put it, a balls out crazy with a side of dear God that's creepy, garnished with a hearty what the fuck. :|

Now, can I have one of those "Man in Black" thingy? The ones that flash into your face and make you forget stuff?
Cos forgetting the whole s5 (and since we're there, s4 too) would be great.

Syphillis does have potentially neurotoxic effects, you know.

Your comments are spot on. Sometimes I feel like the TPTB *think* they are telling us a story about how Justin has matured after his disappointment in California to realize that that the love of a partner, family and friends are the only thing he can really count on and contrasting this realization with Brian’s failure to grow, mature and commit, however everything seems so abrupt and sudden- I’m not sure what TPTB are trying to say.

Anyways…Whooo-Hooo SGA- slash utopia for the masses!

balls out crazy

We're talking about Brian here, so wouldn't that now be ball out crazy?

Brian crossed that nebulous line between self-absorbed but lovable and into balls out crazy with a side of dear God that's creepy, garnished with a hearty what the fuck.

BWAHAHAHAHA!!! This ought to be metaquoted!

He has, in fact, achieved levels as yet unseen in the wild. This could be an *entirely new species of humanity*. A scary one.

Thank you. I so needed to laugh about all this right now.

I think they're just writing it like an essay. Or a lesson plan for elementry school. 'Cause I've been writing those and CowLip's story is amazingly like it. It's the final season, so they have to hash through all they have in the previous seasons, just in case we've had amnesia or something.

I miss my Brian. Where did he go? Hell, while we're at it, I miss the OpenRelationshipIsCool!Justin, too.

I still like Ben, though. And I'm glad he and Brian hangs out together. But what I want is...Ben/Justin or even Brian/Justin/Ben.
