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.

Re: Memento... Too many of the characters were like card board cut-out people. They were one sided. I mean, we had War!Guy, Peace!Guy, Smart!Guy, they were dull. I was mostly enjoying watching Chris Judge trying to keep a straight face.
LOL. I know what you mean. I liked Ronson and how he and Jack interacted; we don't seem to see Jack working with other Colonels a whole lot. But the 'aliens' were just... yawn. The theme of the episode (if you can call it a theme) had potential, I think, it just wasn't relevant enough to the (Earth) human experience to be of much interest.
Does anyone else care to weigh in?

Finally coming out of lurkdom!!!

Would probably be my second least favorite ep after 'Disclosure'

Kept waiting for this deep dark secret to creep out of the wood work as to why they were concealing the Stargate, but it never came... Turns out they weren't even hiding the 'gate in the first place, bang goes my conspiracy theory!!!

Perhaps there are disadvantages to having an over active imagination after all!!! :0P

That's why you have to post it...
