With A Garden By The Sea
The muse is being troublesome. Or most likely lost in the throes of the migraine. *holds head* Need to start looking into prescriptions seeing as Excedrin isn't really doing jack.

Charli's here! Whee! Poor thing must be dead from jetlag. We'll be driving north tomorrow... will take pictures of blank stretch of highway five as must find creative outlet somewhere in every day. Will also try force her to accept Stargate Atlantis as her new show/'ship. 'Cause then I can get her to write Shep/Weir fic and eee!

Random two icons...




Random really-wee Shep/Weir fic thing with no point or purpose except to allow me to attack the Sheppard commitment issue mylittleredgirl brought up.


Five floors down and halfway into the East Wing a museum (they decide) is located.

He gives her the tour two months after the discovery when she is out of paperwork and he's in the doorway waiting. She is the only one who has not gone.

Endless clear cubes hold unidentified objects - the search for explanation still proving fruitless - and he informs her of the popular opinions for each display they pass. She names three, and he makes them official by agreeing with her titles.

It only takes two votes, he says.

Black walls illuminate the exhibits, and she is fascinated by the small one in the center.

Moldy green jello, she calls it, and he looks at her strangely, momentarily surprised.

That's what I said, he explains, and she wonders why he finds that odd.

-Fin


Will likely explore this idea further in tiny paragraphs until it makes sense on a larger scale because it's irresistible. He's always by her side, following her, supporting her, helping her... and yet I think he's ______ [insert word that is sort of like, but not, scared, intimidated, wary of] that connection to Elizabeth specifically. Not that we've seen that in canon yet *coughs* but it's there. Yes. *nods*

The migraine. Lord. *shuffles off to bed*

Disquieted? Uneasy? Perplexed? Spooked? Startled? Daunted? Cautious? Apprehensive? Guarded? Alarmed? Thrown for a loop? And yes, I was bored so I was searching through the thesaurus. *am nerd*

I was going to ask 'what commitment issue,' but then your little fic thingy and explanation afterwards sort of cleared things up a bit and has actually gotten me thinking - something that's hard to do at 4AM. I actually just had a thought, but promptly forgot what I was going to write. *smaps self*

Now I want to rewatch all the eps again just to see if I can find it happening in canon. Hee!

Sympathies for the migraine. Ick.

Crud. Was that link there earlier? Maybe I'm going senile... Couldn't see the icons last night, but I love the first one. Torri's got a great smile. It's kind of contagious. lol

Was going to give you a homemade codeine-like cocktail in an effort to help, but now I can't remember the exact combination and I'd kinda like to not hurt you. So actually, there was no real point to this comment post... ignore me (except you should continue with those tiny paragraph fic thingies and I'm not just saying that because you're so damn good at them and I need fic) *nods*

Bwah! But so helpful because am in love with "cautious" and "guarded"! A little too bold perhaps as they're missing the key element of John's cocky and sweet flyboy attitude, but they're making me excited. :D

Hehehe, I was looking for a good excuse to go back through them all again. LOL!

*coughs* Thought had corrected that before anyone noticed... *shuffles feet*

Torri's got a great smile. It's kind of contagious.

And I just keep using that damn pic for icons because she's so cute in it! I'm also way too excited for the next few months 'cause I'm betting we'll get some new photos of everyone soon... *doesn't think about possibility of Joe/Torri one* ;)

Ooh, codeine... *sighs lovingly* ...that was the only thing that saved me the one time I had a blindingly awful migraine. Gah. But am all better today with much appreciation for your thought. :D

I know. *sigh* None of the words really jumped out at me to the point where I could go "A HA!" Sucks when you just know the feeling and what the word is supposed to convey, but you just can't grasp it or verbalize it. (which makes me glad I'm not writing fic. heh.) I like "guarded," too, because despite his cocky and sweet flyboy attitude, I always thought of him as really introverted. Not sure how much depth TPTB were giving him, but Joe, at least, certainly was portraying him as if there were a million layers hidden under the laidback facade. And YAY for being excited! *squee*

She really is TOO CUTE. Every time I see those pics, I start grinning. Weir needs to laugh more on the show. Then Shep could turn into a big ol' puddle of melty mush from it. I dare him to resist that smile! LOL I can't wait for new pics and new spoilers. I'm soooo ready for Season 2. Like now.

LoL! that's exactly what I've been doing! hehee:) first I made Beki watch Atlantis with me...then I bombarded her with ShWeiry thoughts and pictures and music videos, and now I finally got her to write ShWeiry fic!!! *insert evil laugh here* :D

*is very proud*

I hope your headache goes aweay!

Hee! You're like the ShWeir Recruiter. ;) And dude, if it means more fic to pass the days, then get them in by the dozen. LOL
roothekittykat From: roothekittykat Date: March 16th, 2005 11:50 am (UTC) (Link)
LoL:)

I'm woroking on it :D

one of my other friends says she sees the ShWeir, and she's in the middle of writing a SG-1 episode!fic, so i'm trying to get her to write a ShWeiry one after she finishes, but she's very insistent that she doesnt want to! we'll have to see how long she can hold out...

::smacks forehead::

forgot to comment about your ficlet! I don't really have a suggestion for a word, but I juts woke up 5 minutes ago, so my brain isn't actually here yet, but ITA, that most definitely needs further exploration! you could do it in little ficlets like that with different short scenes showing it or something to that effect :)

Oooh... definitely! Once it starts making more sense I can tie them all together into a progression of sorts and... *ideas*

hehee, exactly!

*interested*

It's one of the ideas I've come to love the most about J/E fics...that he always seems to be, not commitment-phobic exactly, just a little uneasy about the fact that any woman has the kind of pull over him that Weir does, and I think it's probably partly because it *is* Weir that his confusion stems from; one of my favourite lines from one of Melyanna's fics is "On Earth you never would have considered her, because she would have laughed at you for the attempt."

*looks over entry* I'm sure I started off with a point in there somewhere...*g*

Omg, exactly.

And though I feel I should have so much more to add, somehow exactly seems to cover it. 'Cause really, yeah, exactly.

I'm sure I started off with a point in there somewhere

LOL! I've been having a hard time pinpointing an explanation of anything. The whole idea/analyzation is hazy because the canon of it is still so unexplored, so I can only keep grabbing at it in little moments between them. Heh!
nikej From: nikej Date: March 16th, 2005 11:56 am (UTC) (Link)
I just love the fact that you can see him being kind of troubled over it...you know, in the 'but she's totally not the type I think everyone thinks I *should* be going for and what's up with that?' kind of way, which I think would just disconcert him enough so that he'd be unresolved about the whole idea.

LOL! I've been having a hard time pinpointing an explanation of anything. The whole idea/analyzation is hazy because the canon of it is still so unexplored

LOL! Absolutely! But then that is also the Best Part because nothing is set in stone and you can create and interpret every action till your heart's content! ;D

Oy, migraine! Not good!

I have/had migraines. Excedrin worked for a while, but I can't get it outside of the US, and I'm not out there often enough to have keep a steady supply going.
My GP prescribed something called Imigran. It's a sumatriptan.
Pretty heavy duty, and I can't just pop it in the office. I have to go home, take the pill and take a nap, but when I wake up 1-2hrs later, the migraine is gone
*huggles drugs*

I have found, though, that seeing my osteopath on a regular basis helps even better: I had a serious migraine every 6 weeks before I started therapy with him, and now I've had only 3 minor attacks in the past 11 months and my job hasn't been any less stressful than it was before. Amazing stuff..

You know, a friend of mine has said/recommended the same thing. I just keep thinking it's stress or exhaustion and that somehow I'll overcome it. But man... that hasn't worked yet. ;)

And, once again, I must squee! and *love you* for brightening up my night with such a wonderful snapshot of John and Liz.

Words can't express how much I adore the way you write these two -- it just rings so damn perfect so I'll simply say:

SQUEE!

*LOVE*
anr From: anr Date: March 15th, 2005 03:38 pm (UTC) (Link)
Also? *careful hugs* for the migraine -- I hope it fades rapidly.

I'm not sure on what word to use either but I know exactly what you mean. *lovesponders this idea*

snapshot of John and Liz.

Snapshot! That's such a better way to describe it. Not that "random really-wee fic thing" isn't eloquent in its own right, of course. ;)

Wow. *blushes* 'Tis very sweet to say that.

I hope it fades rapidly.

It did! Thank you for the thoughts!

interesting ideas in the ficlet. I'm dying for more :)
I adore the last line.

leary, nervous, freaked out, I wanna say "tentative" because he doesn't want to break it
phrenitis From: phrenitis Date: March 16th, 2005 08:17 am (UTC) (Link)
I adore the last line.

I kind of like putting this whole thing into Elizabeth's perspective... makes me feel like she's discovering/questioning him the way we are. Plus, since I don't know what it is that I'm trying to find in John, I suppose it's better that I don't try to tell it from his point of view. ;)

I wanna say "tentative" because he doesn't want to break it

Oooh!! Wait, that totally hit on something. OMG, it's so elusive. *grasps* This is getting close to something...
