In which I say, yeah, I've lost all rationality



I've come to realize that three quarters of my deep and abiding love for this show is all visceral--pretty men, pretty women, and occasional violence.

I am not ashamed of the fact that pretty much every time John was on screen, I sighed, "oooh. pretty."

I also said, Thank you God, when he was stick fighting. Jesus. Please. More of *that*. Can I get a clip of that anywhere?

He was blue and scaly and slimey. He was *scary*--okay, never mind, I find scary John the hottest thign ever. But I think I realized Id' abandoned all sense when he did that classic flying squirrel impression to leap at people and bug eggs and I *did not laugh*.

I said. "OOh. *Pretty*."

I am *fucked*.

Note: anyone notice how his poor hair flattened the unhappier he got? I've noted this before. There is a direct correlation between the perk of his hair and his mood.

Note 2: This pretty much killed my fledgling Weir/Sheppard fic I was trying to work on. *Dammit*.

with you on the pretty even when he jumped through space...

note 1: LOL. no i didn't...have to watch for that on re-viewing.
note 2: really? i felt it was the john&elizabeth show...i mean, it was better for "you and me" and poor rodney just stood around as comic relief again...

Oh, it definitely was, but it wasn't *romantic*. And that actually bothers me, because I kind of like Weir/Sheppard in theory. He had sparks with Teyla, and then he backed off *that* looking weird, and with Weir--I mean, I really *really* wanted something here I could use. And it could be just me, but it was freakishly platonic. It has to be deliberate. John can do sexy like breathing, but--just not there. Not that I didn't like what they had--if they're going for close friendship, *excellent*.

I loved Rodney, Ronan, and Teyla all sitting together, waiting for news. That was just--*hugs them*.

oh yes, it was definitely heavy on the team spirit...but you didn't feel the het vibes??? my poor slasher heart was getting all protective! but i'll *gladly* read it as friendship...and the commanding officer to another...

actually, i really liked the elizabeth/everett vibes--but then i've always been more of an enemy shipper :D

And then at the end, when he was in that shirt with the rolled-up sleeves? And the rest of the time, when he was in that black shirt that makes it look like his torso goes on forever? Rrrrowr.

And then at the end, when he was in that shirt with the rolled-up sleeves?

Yeah, what was *with* that? Just to make every fangirl fall *dead*? My *God*. Second only to him and Teyla with the sticks--and that just barely--that is my best image coming out of it. Wow.

Note: anyone notice how his poor hair flattened the unhappier he got?

I did notice... he and Darien Fawkes have a lot in common, I'm thinking.

*pets John's poor, sad hair*

Who is Darien Fawkes, if I can ask?

He's the Invisible Man! :D Sadly, sadly underrated series. Well, and cancelled. And kinda old. But late in the first season his doctor looked at him and said even his hair was depressed.

*sigh* Oh Vincent Ventresca, how I miss your semi-electrocuted hair and amazing ability to wear nothing but briefs. Good times.

Lots of pretty + math porn + science fiction = Ilexian Nirvana.

No, no. Not fucked at all. Brilliant. You? Are brilliant. His pretty know no bounds. Its inescapable.

God yes. I am *so with you*.

*connects here*

So. Pretty.

So pretty. I thought he was pretty when he did the flying squirrel too. I need to rewatch, because there was good stuff besides the pretty - power struggles and codeine love (and oh my god, are they *trying* to get me to write Sheppard addicted to painkillers?!) and team worries and all that.

But yes. He was even pretty with the scaly makeup, and that should be a terrifying thought but it's not.

That codeine bit was *inspired*.

and oh my god, are they *trying* to get me to write Sheppard addicted to painkillers?

I will offer you *anything you want* if you write this. Okay? *Anything you want*. God. Yes. He *would* be.

On a secondary note, yes, the struggle between Weir and Caldwell was fasciating. I try to like him and he and Weir have some great moments, but every time he opens his mouth, I want to shout "WRONG WRONG WRONG! YOU ARE SO WRONG!" even when he's right, and that's just not good.

The thing I love best that is Sheppard's pretty is that he's not unnaturally pretty *coughClarkcough* he's extraordinarilly real looking pretty with personality. I mean, that hair on my brother-in-law? Not so much. But on Sheppard it's just an extention of his personality and unbearably sexy.

Also, I don't think that blue would have looked scary on anyone. He looked like he was turning into a toy. A girly toy.

I found it odd that they vamped up Weir's eye make-up and wasted it on Caldwell chemistry. She had nothing but comrade chemistry with Sheppard, which disappointed me. Although, the stick-fighting-kiss-of-knee-melting-sexiness wouldn't have played nearly so well if it had felt like a triangle.

He looked like he was turning into a toy. A girly toy.

... I am a sick, sick, sick woman. 'Cause pretty much the first thought in my head is, "Ribbed, for your pleasure."

Damn! I want that torrent now, living in not English-speaking countries has drawbacks like this. Can`t wait to see this ep.

Thanks for sharing the pretty and I love the theory about the hair. LOL!

So pretty. Just so pretty. I loved how he could be crazed and hopped up on something, and then obviously work himself back under control and ask about other people. Man, and the codine thing. He's really clear on when he has to behave himself because he's high and he doesn't want to scare people. He comes by his slacker attitude naturally.

So. Pretty.

Up until the final BuggyJohn incarnation, I was still grooving on the Colonel, so you are not alone.

Ronan, Rodney and Teyla's moments of team worry and vigil were...yeah. And Rodney's eyes and their suspicious brightness and voice cracking when asking if they were to the good bye stage? *sigh*

I am watching this episode right now for the...fifth time (hey, I've had a bad day, I need some Sheppard and I watched the pilot yesterday *g*), and I just have to wander in here and say that I really should be more disturbed by my reaction to the words "I'm not safe to be around anymore."

Because it's not what it probably should be.

*stares at Sheppard*

Oooh yeah. Dear God, yes. Please be more dangerous. *Please*.

*happy place with the dark Sheppard*

I love the mood/hair correlation. I'll have to watch out for that in the future.
Oh yes, lots of pretties on Atlantis. Why did I fight watching SGA for so long.
Speaking of fighting, the sticks...yeah, they work for me. Oh yeah. Now we just need to see John and Rodney with the sticks...
Um..the fighting sticks.
My only problem with the ep was the contacts. I whined about it here if you're interested.
