All about TV Shows and Shippers  
I'm getting into SciFi TV shows like never before. After Atlantis, I started watching SG-1, now I'm obsessed with SGU, getting the courage to start downloading the complete SG-1 series, got the whole BSG series with a friend... and I'm currently downloading Firefly...
Bunch of things I should had seen years ago, though...

Now, I'm a shipper. It's rare for me to see a show without shipping anyone (even though the show may not have anything romantic on canon). Though I'm not a compulsory slasher (I mean, there are some fandoms I really can't rut for any slash paring at all), there are those shows I walk the whole rainbow shipping everything in sight.

Torchwood's one of these shows: I have a OTP for slash (Jack/Ianto), Het (Rhys/Gween), and I even like a little femslash (if Toshiko is involved).
The same goes for Stargate Atlantis, though it's in extreme. I don't have an OTP (John/Rodney comes closer, but...), since I ship Rodney with everyone, Sheppard with everyone (expect Elizabeth), read some interesting femslash with Keller and Sam... and I even found myself thinking about Teyla/Elizabeth recently... weird...

Now, in SGU, thinks starts a little boring... I love Eli, but I can't ship him with Chloe or Scott since I don't like either of them (they really should stick together). Young and TJ background is interesting enough (the first ship I considered)... but now, all the UST between Young and Rush is really getting into my head! I sense a new obsession coming...

SG-1 eu já vi alguns episódios (com o McKay e Atlantis... =P ) e o último filme (tão pouco Jack! Mas adoro a Sam! XD )

Ah... eu adoro Jack/Sam! Eu amo a Sam! Mas como eu ainda nem assisti muito a série fica difícil me empolgar muito - ainda - com eles...

Realmente preciso assistir SG-1 inteiro... mas 10 temporadas assusta um pouco... =P

assusta nada rsrsr quando vc começa nao quer mais parar... se vc morasse aki perto eu te emprestava :P agente podia fazer um re-watch :P
haruechan: Atlantisharuechan on February 5th, 2010 12:22 am (UTC)
Exatamente esse meu medo! Não querer parar e ter que passar minha vida baixando episódios... rs

Mas estou realmente tentada em comprar os DVDs... nem que seja pirata (e olha que sou compra pirataria), só pra poder começar logo! XD

Ah... realmente, se a gente morasse próximas, ficava trocando figurinha seriados o tempo todo... =P

Firefly is perhaps the most amazing series you will ever watch (mostly cos it's Whedon, who is a god) :D But beware: it is dangerous shipping territory! Whedon is notorious for making people fall in love with a ship and then being evil. So tread carefully!


-River/Jayne (this is fun but never actually admitted)

Enjoy! :D

PS: I got sick of SG ships. Apart from McKeller (yay!) they never gave us confirmation and I just got bored. And you don't like Sparky?!
haruechan: Atlantisharuechan on February 4th, 2010 01:38 am (UTC)
Someone already warned me about Firefly and shippers... =P I know how Whedon can be cruel with it...

But, for me, I don't need canon approval to ship anyone... That's why I love fandom and the creative mind of the fans... XD So I never get tired of ships that never got confirmation on the show...

Sparky? Oh, thank you google for the info... XD The only problem with John/Elizabeth is the second half of the pairing... I don't like Elizabeth very much, so it's hard for me to ship them...

but...but... Elizabeth is lovely! :( I watched SGA first, y'see, and I'm quite anti-military and I immediately liked her because she was the civilian voice of reason! Also she's just awesome. :)

I watched SGA first too... But I don't know! I really can't explain why I don't like her... I simply had zero empathy with her from the beginning... Okay, she's strong and independent, and all you said... maybe it's the actress I couldn't relate, because I really can't say anything bad about her character... =/

Go figure... I fell in love with Rodney and his sister from the first episode... it was McKay and Mrs Miller after all.. XD
delta_mai: Jas' icondelta_mai on February 4th, 2010 05:09 pm (UTC)
Hmm it was actually the same for me with Teyla. Strange how you and a character can just not mesh!

I love Rodney :D I love how his character has grown throughout the series ;D
haruechan: Ewan McGregor - whatharuechan on February 5th, 2010 12:19 am (UTC)
Teyla! That's it! She's a strong character, very feminine, independent, a warrior, yet soft and caring... I connected with her, but felt something missing with Elizabeth... Maybe because I though, "wow, Teyla is HOT and cute", together with all that I said before... and yet, I can't find Elizabeth that pretty... *shrug* I reeeally don't know... =P

I'm trying to make sense of it too... though I'm opening myself more for Elizabeth... I already can work with her (doing graphics, reading fanfics and stuff), she's just not my top five favorite character after all (and I rather have John with Teyla than her!) =P
delta_mai: Laundry Daydelta_mai on February 5th, 2010 12:22 am (UTC)
Lol funny how we didn't click with those characters! With Teyla it was similar - I felt that she wasn't acted very well by Rachel and same with the looks. Also I felt that they were forcing the John/Teyla ship. Now I love Teyla, and my thoughts about the acting were totally wrong. Still don't like Jeyla, but I like the awkward sexual tension moments :D

I think Torri is beautiful tbh :) And she's an amazing actress - I've seen her in other stuff too and she's mind blowing :D

I warmed up to Teyla - maybe same for you and Liz? :P
haruechan: David Hewlettharuechan on February 5th, 2010 12:40 am (UTC)
The same, but so different... =P

Okay, I'm trying to warm up... now I have two friends that really like Weir, so I have to double the effort, right? XD

By the way, as a prove that I'm really making a effort: I'm aiming to do an art for a AU fanfic where Elizabeth is the main character (and looks like it may be Sparky after all). Just saw a glimpse of the fic, and I was captivating...
delta_mai: Jas' icondelta_mai on February 5th, 2010 12:42 am (UTC)
YAY! Stick with it - Sparky is gooood :D

UHM, I want to watch Torchwood! Cas told me I would like it but haven't had the chance, I'm extremely considering what you said and maybe I will download the chapters of some series, duh, my computer has no more space for my icons and so XD,
Need more GB. in my life XD
And about your shipping sickness maybe, nah, no sickness at all or we would be sick together XD
It might be, that icon of yours shows there's something going on there... mmmmmmm...

I have dozens and dozens of CDs and DVDs with TV Series and movies I downloaded... But since I started working, I started buying original DVDs from my favorite series every now and then...

Yay! I said before we are crazy together, we suffer together... XD Bunch of lunatics in LJ obsessing together... <3

SGU Young/Rush... It's a whole level of "I don't trust you... I can't keep you out of my sight... everything keeps coming back to you... Wow, we DO have something in common after all - other than that intense feeling (whatever it is) we share between us". There is definitely something going on... and I need to watch those two last episode today... XD
Diego: made of awesomediek09 on February 5th, 2010 01:04 am (UTC)
Totally obsessing together!
Oh, you have a great imagination, and for me is kinda hard not shipping too, ha ha XD
