Fic Update

Have resolved the uniform issue for the time being -- thanks to everyone who gave me a hand! You're all going down as my technical advisors! For the record, Sam will be wearing slacks, long-sleeved shirt, jacket and garrison cap ;)

Still working on Chapter Two, currently at page 33. It's coming along nicely, although I can already see where timing is going to start to become a problem. I have scenes going on on two different planets, with two different time tables. I'm going to have to do what I didn't do with Sleepers and keep good records from the beginning about what happens and when.

Trying to figure out when to first introduce the villian. I don't want to do it too early, but I don't want to wait too long either.

Lyrics

One more thing before bed... I really love this song more every time I listen to it.

Something Crazy
Franky Perez

We get together once a week
To bare our souls in my back seat
She makes me wear my heart on my sleeve
She cries a bit, I act the fool
We reminisce about high school
I ask her why she didn't choose me

And she said, Help me get outta here
The walls are closing in
I wanna be gone before he comes back again
Help me get outta here -- I need to get outta here
Before I do something crazy

She wears makeup to hide the scars
Got bruises up and down her arms
And the coward's name tattooed on her wrist
She says that she's afraid to leave
She says someday he's gonna kill me
'Cause when he's drunk he talks with his fists

And she said, Help me get outta here
The walls are closing in
I wanna be gone before he comes back again
Help me get outta here -- I need to get outta here
Before I do something crazy

And you've suffered for much too long
Baby he can't get to you
Through my arms

I may not be your personal Christ
But you don't have pray in vain
'Cause I'll be by your side

I'll help you get outta here
(Help me help you)
If the walls are closing in
But we better be gone before he comes back again
(Help me help you)
I'll help you get outta here
We better get outta here
(Help me help you)
Before I do something crazy
Something crazy
I do something crazy

*shudders*

I seem to only remember the dreams I have in the morning. I'd set my alarm last night for 9am... of course when 9am rolled around I said 'screw it', turned it off, and went back to sleep for an hour. But it was in that hour that I had very strange dreams. One had something to do with the dorms at school, only they weren't the right buildings and I didn't know any of the people and there was something wrong with me because it took me forever to pull myself up the stairs, which doesn't make any sense because I've always lived on the first floor. Plus there was something with a kid and a cell phone and possibly Agent Smith from The Matrix, although he wasn't really Agent Smith.

But the other dream I remember was even stranger, and sad, and kind of scary... and Stargate-related of course. And actually somewhat spoilery, in a vague sense, so I'll do this...

Collapse )

It creeps me out just thinking about it, because it was one of those dreams where, half the time, I was watching -- kind of a third party -- and the rest of the time I was actually in the role of one of the characters. Very disconcerting.

For FJ and Petra and Yam:

This wasn't the first time that she had been featured in his dreams, of course, but he was less than thrilled by her arrival. He never got past first base with Dream-Carter anyway, and then afterwards he always felt guilty about it. Seemed that the Air Force's regulations on fraternization extended all the way into his fantasy life, the bastards.

In the interests of fairness...

Sex dreams? You're assuming Sam remembers what sex IS

Dude, he's her CO

Laughable Lawsuits

Oh Suuue...

Or some other medical-type person...

What kind of drug would you give someone to make them happy? I don't care what it's actually supposed to be used for... just something fast-acting that would make someone happy but not, like, put them in an altered state of consciousness. And how much would you give an adult man?
