The roommate finally saw an episode of Atlantis as she had the rare Friday night off from work. So it begins, 'ickle John flashes by in the "previously" and immediately she turns to me:

Roommate: Is his hair supposed to be like that?
Jen: *dying* As opposed to?
Roomate: I just wondered if that's actually what he does in the morning... gets some gel and decides, "Yes, I'd like it to look like this today."
Jen: *ded*



Can I love John/Elizabeth more? *squeezes them* Although I noticed in this episode that they do this weird thing where they just barely miss making eye contact at the same time... like Elizabeth will be watching him, and just as she turns away, John will look at her. It's adorable. Anyway...

Pictures! Whee!



My roommate pointed out how cool it was that the prop department decided to make "futuristic looking cups" by spray painting a carabiner silver to use as the handle.




So that opening scene had me all squee'd because it was straight out of fanfic with the whole, "I can't sleep, you can't sleep, hey look we've met up over coffee to talk" scenario. Then there was teasing! And banter! And eye-fuckage like you wouldn't believe! Then one mustn't forget that they leaned in to each other to talk, that she called him John, that he knows (or thinks he knows) that she was the one whose "opinion mattered the most" and got him promoted (and did you see the silent, teasing communication? *flails*), and that they both felt the same about what it had been like to be back on Earth...




Love shots like this.




Hee! HEE! Another! Damn they look good together like that. Just saying.




Random... is this another new Lizzie necklace?




BWAH! *dies* The look on his face... *wipes tears*




Hotness out of uniform. My God.

And about these flashbacks... I enjoy that it was only Elizabeth and John that had them. I know the episode was about the demands/sacrifices of leadership (mostly for Weir), but it made me give a teeny 'shippy squee.




*snickers* He looks at her when he says he'll check the rest later. Mehehe, he means that she'll be the one checking it out later. ;)




See? And she's all, "Shh! John! No one is supposed to know!"

*whistles*




'Twas a beautiful shot of the lights going out around Elizabeth and then coming back up with a match being lit in a flashback.




But really. What? What is she wearing? I'm sure it had to do with having just watched SG-1, because my mind went to Vala's peasant dress at first.




Aww, I love girl bonding. They need to be friends. *nods*

maybe Narim Simon sold off her good clothing and that was in an old bag in the attic of clothing that was destined for good will?

the opening scene left me with enough squee that I had to watch it several more times. it was quite necessary to gaining a full understanding of the situation ;)

*snickers* Maybe 'tis shirt of Narim's Simon's new girlfriend? Liz thought he had bought them for her and didn't want to tell him he had really shite taste?

;)

*flails*

That opening scene KILLED me. It almost made me forget to watch the rest of the episode. And dear god, the PICTURES!

Er, that lacy thing. Yeah. I figure Simon made her skeeve with his new hair so she decided to blind him with the fugliness of her blouse.

And John's hair can look like whatever he wants it to. Because that man is sex.

I thought it was really well done, too... as much as I love to gush over the hawtness and 'ship!omg of it, I think it was a lovely view of how normal their relationship is becoming. And in a good way. I wouldn't have necessarily called them friends before this, but here they were teasing and relating to/agreeing with one another without having an "omg what's happening are you still alive?" emotional response.

AND, Elizabeth got the chance to pull sort of a "Before I Sleep" John moment. ;)

Aaaaw...but we need bitch fighting!! put em in a ring and let them battle it out over Sheppard ;)!!

And is it just me or Zelenka completely in love with Weir??

*thinks he is*
phrenitis From: phrenitis Date: July 24th, 2005 05:34 pm (UTC) (Link)
but we need bitch fighting!

Hee! That'll happen when an off-world team accidentally brings back some sort of alien thing that will find a way to affect Teyla and Weir. ;)

Oh and duuuuude, Zelenka has completely replaced Grodin!Love for Elizabeth. I think he might have almost been hopping with pleasure at seeing her again. :D

that he knows (or thinks he knows) that she was the one whose "opinion mattered the most" and got him promoted

See, that's what I thought that look from him meant. A lot of people are talking about the possible fall out when/if Shep finds out that it was essentially Weir that got him promoted, not the military ptb. But I think he now suspects it was her, right?

But really. What? What is she wearing?

omg, that dress killed me. And not in the good way. *burns dress*

Anyway, lovely pictures there. Thanks for sharing. :)
phrenitis From: phrenitis Date: July 24th, 2005 05:44 pm (UTC) (Link)

I don't think it would be in character for John to be upset at Weir (if he doesn't know and ends up finding out it was her over the military)... John has never shown much love for rules and regs, and I actually think he'd be sort of proud of Weir for having stuck up for him against the big guys. ;)

Plus, the way he responds after Elizabeth does her adorable "i dunno *shrug with grin*" move suggests that he has an idea that she was involved in the decision making, and I'm thinking if he were going to be upset about it, we would have started to see it then.

See this all fits in with my irrational theory (irrational cos I have not seen the episode, not because it's batshit crazy or anything) that Liz wants Simon along partly as a buffer between she and John and teh hawtness that results from them say, being in the same room together, making eye contact, breathing the same air etc.

BUT she really wants to leave his ass on Earth and so passive-aggressively dresses like HIS MOTHER OMG! in order to convey that should he come along he should not be expecting any touchy-touchy, as his hair is not sufficiently cool enough for her now that she has the industry standard for bed head working under her every day. Yes.





...Y'know, its stuff like this that makes me worry about one day being in charge of other people's mental health.
phrenitis From: phrenitis Date: July 24th, 2005 05:56 pm (UTC) (Link)
YOU HAVE BEST IRRATIONAL THEORY OMG!

Simon would so be jealousy!object for John (except for hair, because John will always win), and provide for much Sparky UST and flirting! banter! teasing! since John will want what he cannot have. *pets him*

BUT she really wants to leave his ass on Earth and so passive-aggressively dresses like HIS MOTHER OMG! in order to convey that should he come along he should not be expecting any touchy-touchy

*dies*

Best. Theory. Ever.

Meh, you will make lots of money and be widely popular... mental health is all relative anyway. ;)

Eeee, I love this pictures!

Did you see the look Elizabeth gave John after she said something about "the people whose opinions mattered the most"? That kind of smirk/smile as she leaned back? So hot!

They also kept on staring at each other all throughout the episode. And smiling. And calling each other by their first names. Something went on during those eighteen days aboard the Daedalus, me thinks... :D

I loved Caldwell's comment about the chain of command being a little "fuzzy" on Atlantis. HE TOTALLY SUSPECTS.
phrenitis From: phrenitis Date: July 24th, 2005 06:05 pm (UTC) (Link)
OMG, was best Liz look ever! The one in the opening scene of "Before I Sleep" comes close, but this time Elizabeth had the ball in her court and was teasing him. Sparky!

HE TOTALLY SUSPECTS.

Caldwell must be harnessed and used as catalyst to John/Elizabeth relationship development. He can be antagonist. Yes.
roothekittykat From: roothekittykat Date: July 25th, 2005 04:59 am (UTC) (Link)
ah! the first name thing! YES! so totally awesome! :D throughout the episode I kept thinking, they sure are using their first names often!
From: tangerrine Date: July 26th, 2005 04:07 am (UTC) (Link)
*g* Sometimes I think I read too much into little things like that, but still-- Elizabeth! John! Oh, the squee!

mkay... just saw this, and... ahem... THEY'RE SO DOING IT! i could SWEAR i heard "WE'll check the rest later", while he was looking at liz. and i am not - i repeat, am NOT - dirty-minded, nor am i smut-lover. so yeah... oh yeah...

so cute... so cute... so cute.

re the dress... keep trying to figure out why you guys didn't like it. thought it was kinda cool. i kept wondering what the rest of it looked like, since we only saw the top. but i LOVE the tiny earrings... tres chic... ;)
phrenitis From: phrenitis Date: July 25th, 2005 01:06 am (UTC) (Link)
i could SWEAR i heard "WE'll check the rest later"

*giggles*

thought it was kinda cool.

I'm not opposed to the shirt per se, more that the shirt was unflattering on Torri... they had the opportunity to sport her in HOTNESS MY GOD and went with pearls. Maybe Elizabeth left all her awesome low-cut tanks in Atlantis to save for John.

You know, I just realized... if we ever get to see Weir with her hair in a loose ponytail, all sweaty from a workout with John, and in something like leather, I may die. Liek omg keel over and DIIIIIE. Just putting that out there. *lalala*
roothekittykat From: roothekittykat Date: July 25th, 2005 04:56 am (UTC) (Link)
i was wondering about that necklace too! she must have gotten it during their stay on earth somewhere...maybe john gave it to her...WRITE A FIC!! WRITE A FIC!!! please?? 0:-) I'll even beta it...LoL;)

and it must be the same clothing people who chose sam's outfits when she was with pete...bleh.
phrenitis From: phrenitis Date: July 25th, 2005 05:40 am (UTC) (Link)
Eee! Okay. *is won over* Have been in strangest fic writing moods lately... will see what I can get Sparky to do. ;)

And welcome back!! Whee!

astrum_presul pointed out that it seems to be the same necklace as the one she wears in New Order, and i went to find some screencaps and they most definitely look like the same necklace.

*is sad that no fic will come from this*
