Conversion
Honestly, way too many photos. I don't know how my bandwidth is able to support my pic capture habits.



My boyfriend, Beckett, is so adorable because not only was he ready and waiting for John's return at the gate with a gurney, but then he also covered John's lap with a sheet and buckled his seatbelt. *loves omg*


They did a lot of weird camera angles and fast swivels to accentuate John's "changing", and I thought this one was cool.



Okay, we now begin the analysis section of today's photo recap.

Exhibit A is of the stick John threw to the ground... the fact that the camera panned to it is likely a combination of them wanting us to know that he's now fighting with only one stick, and an indication that he's feeling "manly" (upping one on Teyla, his tutor, by advancing to a higher level than her).

Exhibit B has Matrix!John putting one hand behind his back, a sort of condescending "I'm so good I can beat you one handed" attitude.



John makes the first move... lunging toward her, pinning her arms so they stay crossed over her chest and shoving her up against the wall. I'm sorry, Sheyla what?



Neither love nor lust look like this. *shudders* This is power, control, aggression, surprise and fear. Oh, and bug DNA.




*freaks* I don't care what anyone says, I've had an experience like this, and there is nothing hot or sexy about it. He has total control of the situation (literal control too with the stick at her neck, his hands around her head, and then gripping her arms), and the fact that her hand is up at her face defensively is all the signal you need to tell you that this is not okay.


And then the after where she doesn't look him in the eye (for almost the rest of the scene) and is hugging the pillar at her back. OMG, and now I feel terrible for calling her a robot last season! Teyla, I sorry! You do have emotion!

Er, so yes, not romance, not love, and definitely not to be misconstrued as sexual tension (because omg she was so not leading him on!) And this differs from SG1's "Broca Divide" because the lines during that whole scene made what was happening okay... the humor and Jack's slip about having wanted to kiss her took away the seriousness of the "attack".

Now that we understand that, the squee! of the rest of the episode...


This is the weirdest shot ever and I love it to pieces.


Aww! Puppy dog look at Lizzie!


Ahahahaa!


Worried for her Shep. Loved that she had so many of these internal moments this episode.


A guitar, a longboard, and he made his bed. In stores this spring.


OMG why do boys DO that? The poking? At the injury? OMFG! Toy recall!


She's so worried, and he has crazy hair. Yay!


She's all anxious and "do something!" and then leans down because she thinks maybe really emphasizing it to Beckett will make him find a cure faster. Love love love!


John: "Anything that has you speechless has me concerned."
Elizabeth: "You're going to be fine."
John: "Wow. That's dead man talk."
Elizabeth: "No, it isn't."
John: "Have you seen this?"

Elizabeth: "Beckett is going to figure this one out."
John: "I think I already have. [pause] You know who I'm starting to feel like?"
[she shakes her head]
John: "...Ford."

Elizabeth: "Now what happened to you is completely different."
John: "I know, I know. Still, I can feel it. I mean, I can feel it changing me... inside, like he did."
Elizabeth: "I don't think that's even possible. Look, you're very worried."

John: "No I'm... not, it's uh... One of the best weeks of my life was when I got my wisdom teeth out. I was on codeine for a full seven days. This is kinda the same. I know I should be in pain... or at the very least, freaked out by this, but I'm not. And that freaks me out more than anything."
Elizabeth: "We're gonna beat this."

John: "We're gonna beat this? Beckett will figure this out? You're gonna be fine? You really suck at the whole bedside manner thing."

Elizabeth: "I know, I'm sorry."
John: "But I appreciate the effort."

Eee!


Heh, Caldwell is anti-Atlantis view. He is so not a balcony meeting place kind of guy. ;)



When Caldwell asks Elizabeth: "You two are pretty close, aren't you?" I love that she hesitates and then answers with "Well, we've been through a lot together" and finally looks so completely ADORABLE and vulnerable when she finally admits, "yes." *flails*


LORNE! *loves* Okay, moving on.



Eye contact! More of it! I love them! *clings*


He was definitely holding some resentment over the inability to properly make use of her office as a convenient location for sex due to the windows. Now it will be boarded up and we will have to rely on sound, because "Trinity" told us we ought to be able to hear it. ;)


OMG HE WINKED AT HER! And then she smiled! And they SO TOTALLY HAD A MOMENT! Spanky is in marriage talk already yo. And this cap doesn't do it justice. Meh.


Elizabeth: "I thought I should come by and practice my bedside manner."

*dies*


I lovesomuch that she doesn't take a step backward or lean away when he stands up in front of her that quickly. And looking all... bug mutation like.


Dude, these nighttime shots of Atlantis? Insanely gorgeous.


She has to be the one to tell Shep that the team failed, and she looks like she's gonna cry. Because she is gonna cry. Because she loves him. The end!


Weird camera angle again, and oh look, Shep!pants for mspooh. Plus, you know, Bugified John attacking Lizzie.


As much as Teyla couldn't seem to shoot at John (which I believe to be a result of her bestest friendship with Elizabeth who told her to use force as a last resort *nods*), she kept calling him Colonel, which amused me greatly.


She loves his bedside.


And her private recollections of him.


So the cloak freaks me out, but beside that, I am a big fan of their walking side-by-side.


Caldwell: "Despite what you may think of my intentions, Dr. Weir, I'm not your enemy."
Elizabeth: "Believe me Colonel, you don't want to be."

Ha!



Ohmygod. OHMYGOD. *wipes steam off tv screen*


Ehehehe, please. Teyla's sigh at the very end after she and John have had their "let's just forget about the kiss, yes?" conversation is priceless! She's so the other half of Spanky and thankful that she didn't have to break that to John just yet. ;)

Why the two week wait again? No! *pouts*

I love you sooooooooooo!! OMG! You have no idea how much I needed this break of pictorial squeee right now, and it is SQUEEE AND JOY. And I feel so fucking VINDICATED by your analysis of the kiss scene, THANK YOU, because it's so NOT HOT to have someone do that to you. I mean, I'm all about being shoved up against a wall and kissed if, you know, we have that kind of relationship and it's that kind of setting, but this ain't cool, man!

She's so the other half of Spanky and thankful that she didn't have to break that to John just yet. ;)

You know, when I watched it again, during the kiss of aaaaaaaaaaaa! scene, he kisses her and then she's all "Colonel-" in the "I have to tell you something!" kind of way, and for a moment there I really did think that she might be about to be all "OMFGRONON" to get Shep off her. And because it's true. Teyla and Ronon are soooo having sex already.

She totally won't tell Ronon, though, because she still likes Shep and can't quite control either of them at this point and really just doesn't want there to be bloodshed.

Yay! *bounces* A photo respite is always a good thing!

I mean, I'm all about being shoved up against a wall and kissed if, you know, we have that kind of relationship

Oh, oh yes. Because that is all kinds of hot and sexy and shared lust. And that is the stuff Sparky pr0n is made of. ;)

but this ain't cool, man!

Was disturbing. And I'm scared to check out the popular opinion on the scene for fear there will be proclamations of Sheyla love, or worse, writer/director/producer comments saying it was supposed to be sexy sizzling chemistry or something. *eek*

he kisses her and then she's all "Colonel-" in the "I have to tell you something!" kind of way, and for a moment there I really did think that she might be about to be all "OMFGRONON" to get Shep off her.

OMG just rewatched and ahh! so true!

and you know, she couldn't even go tell Elizabeth 'cause her bestest friend only just told her about the Simon Era of course, and Teyla knows of the Sparky magnetism so can't go telling her about this yet. Even if seeing John in his blue shirt of hotness would have made Elizabeth feel much better. Poor Teyla, alone in her experience. She will become active in the "bringing John and Lizzie" together community after this I feel.

It will probably be the better part of a month or more before I get to see this ep (*weeps*), so photo recap goodness is MUCH appreciated!!!!!
phrenitis From: phrenitis Date: September 12th, 2005 06:50 am (UTC) (Link)
OMG! *sends you strength* The wait! It must be killer! Good preparation for the Massive SciFi Winter Break Of Doom, however, but that's likely not very comforting to know.

And yay! Glad you got to see the piccies! *pets them*

SPARKY! Teyla being cool! Sparky! Caldwell! Sparky!

*melts*

Fantastic piccies and commentary, I think this'll keep me going for another two weeks. :D (Two weeks! *jawdrop* Another two week long wait, what is up with Sci-Fi? Hmph.)
phrenitis From: phrenitis Date: September 12th, 2005 06:52 am (UTC) (Link)
Yay! And dude, I have need for Sparky/Caldwell fics now.

Also? A big I KNOW to the two week wait. And I'm skeered that I'm having much flailing over two week waits when we're heading into a THREE MONTH one quite soon. *clings to you*

First let me mention your LJ is definitely another favorite among the Sparky fandom of http://www.newmajor.net (MAJORS) along with zeropointsnark.

They did a lot of weird camera angles and fast swivels to accentuate John's "changing", and I thought this one was cool.

That's a great cap. I loved watching John go all super Shep on us! Not the bug parts so much, but the super.

The kiss has been absolutely and perfectly analyzed, so I let that lie in complete agreement.

A guitar, a longboard, and he made his bed. In stores this spring.

OMG why do boys DO that? The poking? At the injury? OMFG! Toy recall


Hilarious! I too noticed and notably excited by the appearance of the guitar. Although I've decided perhaps it is a Johnny Cash original that John shangai'd before leaving The Milky Way thinking "They'll never find it now" He'll probably sell it on eBay in a few years.

::shrugs::

I so much loved every John/Elizabeth moment in this ep. I hadn't really thought about the part of them walking side by side while he was wearing the overcoat of doom, so I thank you for your sparky senses!

Ohmygod. OHMYGOD. *wipes steam off tv screen*

So that didn't just happen to *my* TV? ::wink::
phrenitis From: phrenitis Date: September 12th, 2005 07:15 am (UTC) (Link)
Aw, 'tis sweet to say that! *smooch* Am just very glad my pic capping habit can be supported. ;)

I loved watching John go all super Shep on us! Not the bug parts so much, but the super.

Oh dude, the super was awesome. And as much as teh kiss weirded me out, he was damn fine doing those fighting moves. Plus we had running! *omg loves*

He'll probably sell it on eBay in a few years.

Ahahaa! :D And I've noticed there's a division amongst fans who wonder if the guitar is out of character or not for John... I've not decided, but have become quite fond of the idea that it was Ford's.

I so much loved every John/Elizabeth moment in this ep.

*bounces* Because there was dynamic! They had authority confrontation and friendship sympathy and silly banter and omg angst! And there was so much eye contact they must have spoken VOLUMES to each other in their special telepathy communication. Whee!

but then he also covered John's lap with a sheet and buckled his seatbelt.

*dies* Well, we do know that John likes fast things. Carson could push him all around the city on that thing now. *snerk*

The analysis of the kiss could be a PSA on what should not happen EVER in a (pre-) relationship or what should happen right before you knee him in the groin and then call the cops.

Was that the same longboard as the one in Trinity? And EEE to the whole bedside manner script recap. Those two are so adorable and I loved the hushed urgency and reassurances going on during the entire conversation. It was so incredibly intimate even though they were pretty much alone in the infirmary. And gah, now I'm trying to picture Shep hopped up on codeine for a week. Hee!

John: "Anything that has you speechless has me concerned."

He knows her well enough to know this about her! Which means they've spent a lot of time hanging out together! And they're constantly talking!

OMG. The scene when John goes to Lizzie's office and asks to go on the mission the first time, there's this Moment right after they've gone through all the greetings where they fall silent and they're just... looking at each other... and he's got this totally relaxed? expectant? argh, something? smiling look on his face... and there's this delicious pause that's... argh, I can't describe it. But yeah. That moment. Just like in that cap.

SPANKY! CROTCHSHOT! *LOVES YOU* BLUE SHIRT WITH ROLLED-UP SLEEVES!

*dies very happy*

Was that the same longboard as the one in Trinity?

Dude, just checked, and it's not.


Damn you're good. ;)


Although from this angle that sure doesn't look like a skateboard... looks more like a skim board. Oh, but look to the left and you can see the wheels of what must be his other skateboard. Or his only skateboard. *confused*


And, erm, a picture? Dad and 'ickle Johnny?


Plus his football has taken the place of his light now. *shrugs*


Ah, I'm going with skim board. Although, wtf?

OMG! I KNOW EXACTLY WHAT YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT! AND YES!

When Caldwell asks Elizabeth: "You two are pretty close, aren't you?" I love that she hesitates and then answers with "Well, we've been through a lot together" and finally looks so completely ADORABLE and vulnerable when she finally admits, "yes." *flails*

ahhh my god, i can't believe i have to wait til DECEMBER to see this ep. i hate you SkyOne!

you should get a job recapping on the zeropointsnark team. cos, your photo recaps?







hella funny :D

phrenitis From: phrenitis Date: September 18th, 2005 03:03 am (UTC) (Link)
i hate you SkyOne!

Oh no! *flails for you* But a small yay for us being almost on the same schedule by the time the end of the second half of the season rolls around. Eh?

you should get a job recapping on the zeropointsnark team.

Hee! We pimp each other out, it's a good deal. ;)

And add away! Shall friend you as well 'cause I'm much too timid to have done it first, and I'm always excited to have new John/Elizabeth! Yay! Stargate fans on my flist. *bounces*
