Fanfic, Monday and Memento Spoilers

Slow day today. Went to my dentist's appointment this morning. My hygiene, according to the Doc, is "impeccable", but she added that I need to de-stress. Hm, where have I heard that before? ;)

Sitting around now, watching the news and trying to write my Memento review. The one isn't exactly helping me concentrate on the other. The other problem is, Memento is probably the ep this season that I disliked the most. That's not to say that it sucked, it just fell a little flat. It needed something extra... some real feeling of danger or threat. Don't get me wrong, there were neat bits... but there was no peril. At least not that I felt. Does anyone else care to weigh in?

I'm still debating whether or not to post my ex-zine story, From the Ashes. Rereading it last night (polishing up and updating it -- i.e. removing Daniel and adding Jonas), I found my toes curling. And not in the good way. I must have thought it was good enough when I wrote it, because I wouldn't have submitted something that I completely hated... but after all this time, I think I'm able to look at it in a new way and I don't really care for what I see. I think the plot is cliched and the violence too gratutitous. Bleh.

At the same time... it sucks having a finished story and not posting it.

*sighs*

Okay, okay...

I'm posting this, but under protest. ;) I don't like it, but I figure if there's someone out there who gets even a moment of entertainment from it... my work here is done.

From the Ashes

Ooh, it's like my very own 'Most Ridiculous'

Apparently the SDJ has put together a Stargate Compendium for those who've yet to memorize the TS Playbook.

Oh. My. God. I swear, it's the SG fandom equivalent of "World History, by the Nazi Party".

Jonas: Quinn took over Daniel's place on SG-1 but is simply not the linguist and cultural expert that Daniel was; he lacks Daniel's genius and intuitive lateral thinking (not to mention his talent for putting everyone else in danger)...

Sam: once engaged to Capt. Jonas Hanson, rogue team-leader of SG-9, and has something of a Black Widow effect on the men who have fallen for her, including Narim, Martouf, Orlin and Senator Joe Faxon. (Wow, I'm glad this compendium has its facts straight.) ... Works brilliantly with Dr. Daniel Jackson, their empathy and shared passion for discovery leading them to be dubbed the 'science twins'.(By who?)

Jack: The trust and friendship forged between these two men when Daniel willingly gave his life to save Jack's has deepened sincerely over time and it is the closest relationship Jack has been able to establish with anyone... They are more than best friends, they are confidantes and in a very real sense, soulmates. (Cripes, there just isn't anything you can say about that without resulting to foul language.)

My God, what a bunch of psychos.
