The auction was held at the end of the day on Saturday. That's a whole other post. Oh, but I noted down that the last line of Redemption pt 1 is an RDA ad lib.

I do really badly on Sanctuary episode titles, btw. Feel free to let me know in comments.

Q&A session 3 )


Q&A session 4 )

Then we got to see Sanctuary S3 bloopers, on condition that no one took photos / video. OMG, you guys. *sporfles*

Okay, I'm basically going to type up my notes from the Q&A sessions of the con, for the time being, so I can get it all down while I remember what she said. I'll try to write a more amorphous, feelings-y post later. Oh, and I have a metric ton of photos to process into postable form.

There were four Q&A sessions; these are my notes from sessions one and two, on Saturday morning and afternoon.

Q&A session 1 – spoilers for Sanctuary S3 )


Q&A session 2 – spoilers for Unending, Sanctuary S3 )

Then Bob the Builder arrived (don't ask me, I've got no idea), and the session ended.

pepper: "What is it...?" "It's a rent in the space-time continuum." (RD what is it)
Writing Sam POV often means I need to go in search of some proper scientific words for things, which is a bit frustrating when I find it hard enough to remember ordinary words - when called upon to verbalise 'fridge', for example, my brain is likely to seize up and go, "Um, that thing, large, white, keeps stuff cool, sits in the kitchen... You know. The thing." This is why I prefer to write rather than speak, because at least with writing I can stop and think about it without people getting impatient and completing my sentences with entirely the wrong words.

But I digress.

What I mean to say is, I have a new favourite scientific phrase (just ousting Quantum foam), which I intend to wedge into a fic if I possibly can: the Airy wave theory, so called because it was first published by George Biddell Airy, and it's about waves.


I still haven't found what I'm looking for, though. What do you call the something-or-other just before a moving object? The... air displacement, water displacement, the warning shivers before a full earthquake, the tiny sliver of air pushed out in front of a car or a plane, the crinkles on the surface of a blob of jam when you push it with a finger to test if it's set and you can stop boiling it...

You know. The thing.

My Top 10 TV girlfriends (because this meme evolved into being about characters rather than actors, and I like that idea better). The previous one? Took me a whole day to choose. This? Five minutes. In no particular order...

pepper: Yay! (Yay)
Can you believe it's been three weeks since Spam Me With Your Favourite Teal'c Moment Thursday? And six weeks since Spam Me With Your Favourite Daniel Quote Thursday? I can't. How time does fly. Jeepers.
I havered on this for a while. Do Jack or Sam need days? Should I give someone else a chance – Cam or Vala for instance, because I sadly neglect them? And then I thought, screw it.
For those of you who've seen Ark Of Truth? Please don't quote it. I've not seen it, and won't for a month or so, and I've so far avoided most spoilers on it (I tell you, it's killing me not to read all the squee). Ta. Oh, but feel free to quote Season 10 all you like.
So, to start you off, because I do love this bit from CoTG, cheesy though it definitely is...
Sam: I'm an Air Force officer just like you are, Colonel, and just because my reproductive organs are on the inside instead of the outside, doesn't mean I can't handle whatever you can handle.
Jack: Oh, this has nothing to do with you being a woman. I like women. I just have a little problem with scientists.
Sam: Colonel, I logged over a hundred hours in enemy airspace during the Gulf War. Is that tough enough for you? Or are we going to have to arm wrestle?
The matching one, which made me laugh and laugh...
Moebius!Sam: This is totally unbelievable! You are a small and pathetic man! Those were my theories on spin wave technology and the effects of anti-gravity on electromagnetism, and you know it! Now, just because my reproductive organs are on the inside instead of the outside, doesn't… God! That's horrible! Who would ever say that?
And finally, one from Space Race:
Sam: Look, I know that this could be dangerous. But this is our job right? It's what we signed on to do. We take risks in the hope of achieving new levels of technology. If and I stress if, participating in this race just happens to be a little bit… I don't know…
Daniel: Fun?
Sam: What's a girl to do?

Season 10 spoilers may be in comments.


pepper: Daniel Jackson looking at archaeology porn (Archaeology porn)
For [personal profile] aurora_novarum, who requested Sam and Daniel, and also happened to request one of my all-time favourite rooms in the museum, the Mexican gallery (room 27). It's full of Mayan, Aztec etc stuff. I went there when I was a kid, and it made a huge impression on me. It's beautiful, but very sinister at the same time. My favourites are all the turquoise mosaic things, but what inspired this ficlet was a frankly terrifying ceremonial jade perforator.

Well, whilst I deal with the disappointment of it being too late to cook bread and butter pudding, and consoling myself with ice-cream and hot fudge sauce, I'll pass on the good news. [profile] vickyocean  has created something positive to counter some of the negative feelings about Sam in Atlantis out there, floating around in the psychic ether:

[info]sam_carter_sga, for discussion, fanfic and fan art.

And [profile] carter_sheppard, for those interested in potential shippage between Sam and John Sheppard.

Vicky was also asking for suggestions, questions and ideas for the comms, as they're works in progress. Go! Play! Glee about Sam! I'm going to miss out, as I won't get to see Atlantis for ages (bah, humbug).

ETA: Meep! Thank you to whoever nominated Out Go The Lights and Peanut M&Ms for the Stargate Fan Awards!

Well, all I can say is, it sucks to be asleep when all the fun stuff happens. I might not have posted this anyhow, even had I been able to (the original post now seems to have been bahleeted, I guess because sticking your fingers in your ears and humming loudly solves a whole slew of problems), because I suspect it would have been rather wasted - but I put a lot of effort into it, so I'm posting it here instead.

pepper: Pepperpot (Yeah right)

Thinking of songs (see post below)... What songs do you think Sam would like? 

See, I have ideas in my brainpan as to what Jack would like. Teal'c also. Daniel I think of as not really paying attention to that sort of thing, his quiet moments being too busy with thinking, reading, etc. But Sam? I'm stumped. And I want it for a fic. 

And also I thought it'd be fun to talk about.

My thoughts so far are - 

  • She maybe liked Madonna when she was a kid / teenager in the 80s (she'd have been, what, 12 years old in 1980) 
  • Also others from that period. George Michael, maybe? Was he popular in America then? 
  • Nowadays she doesn't get much chance to listen to music, but hey, she has a car, so...
  • Stuff that Cassie / Janet have recommended / bought for her - I'm thinking of Faith Hill, but only 'cause of the story with 'This Kiss' in that made me go out and buy it (yes, yes I am a sucker)
  • She hummed the Stargate theme. She needs to get a life.
  • Argh

That's about as far as I've got.

Sam's email...

(And, just to clarify, the order these emails were 'sent' should be Janet, then Jack, then Sam.)
