It's like crack, only better.  
Still processing and gathering my thoughts after last night's BSG finale, but hopefully there'll be an actual review that's coherent arriving soon. Also? I want that version of the Bob Dylan song (which I believed was covered by someone else), because it's so frakking cool.


Six ships you like:
1. Six/Gaius
2. Weevil/Veronica
3. Simon/River
4. Zach/Claire
5. Peter/Claire
6. Dick/Mac

Three ships you used to like, but don't anymore:
7. Spike/Buffy
8. Max/Liz
9. Mal/Inara

Three ships in your various fandoms that you can't stand:
10. Logan/Veronica
11. Peter/Simone
12. Lee/Dee

Two ships you're curious about but haven't actually started shipping:
13. Six/Sharon
14. Dean/Jo


1. Why do you dislike #11 so much?
I wouldn't say I completely despise it necessarily, but I'm not fond of that relationship at all. They never clicked with me. Perhaps it could have something to do with that fact that I find Simone annoying and the romantic triangle with Peter and Isaac fighting over her. But I don't have to worry about it anymore, because Simone is no more (or is she really?)

2. Who is someone you know that ships #13?
Hmmm, viciouswishes I know wrote this lovely drabble, which is nicely written. But otherwise I'm not fully aware of anyone else.

3. What would be your ideal scenario for couple #3 (even if the show isn't on the air anymore)?
Even though it wouldn't have been made canon within the universe itself, there's evidence of plenty possibilities supporting whatever scenarios might've happened, in the fanon-world anyway. I've actually read lots of fanfiction pieces contemplating the post-Serenity and even post-"Objects in Space" with Simon and River. I don't have an exact "ideal", but something sweet and tender involving them always makes me smile.

4. Which is your favorite episode for #1? Try to pick just one, if you can.
"Torn" from S3, with Caprica-Six and Gaius, "Home, Part 2" with Gaius and head!Six, and "Downloaded" with Caprica-Six and head!Gaius. I know that's more than one episode, but I have to take into account with the many different personalities of the characters, especially with head!Six and head!Gaius.

5. How long have you been following couple #6?
Since after the finale of S2. It was completely unintentional, though after reading several what-ifs and post-finale stories about their shared thoughts and feelings after the actions and suicidal demise of Beaver, it really came together really well and I liked the possibilities. It's an odd little rarepairing, Dick and Mac, but I love it.

6. What's the story with #8? What made you stop liking them/caring?
Eh, I just didn't really care for them anymore. I don't know how it happened, but it did.

7. Which ship do you prefer - #2 or #4?
Weevil/Veronica.

8. You have the power to make one ship non existent. Choose from #10 or #12.
Lee/Dee. I actually used to think that the Logan/Veronica relationship was cute during the first season, and would've liked it still if certain things had stayed course, so I guess since I did like them at first if it were non-existent I wouldn't have thought it at all. The marriage between Lee Adama and Dualla is built on emotional lies. Sure, I think Lee cares about her, but not in the way that he cares about Kara.

9. What interests you about #14?
The chemistry really. I know some aren't fans of Dean and Jo getting together in the romantic sense, but I've actually been curious about them. Admittingly I am a Dean fan along with a Jo fan, so I guess I'm biased with seeing that connection. I'm not a fanatic about it though, I just would like to see some more possibilities that's all.

10. When did you stop liking #7?
It's been an on/off kind of thing. I like Spike/Buffy one moment and the next I don't, especially during the sixth and seventh seasons. After the series ended, I concluded they were better off just friends.

11. Did your waning interest in #9 kill your interest in the show?
Nah. I just realized they're always dance around each other, so I'll just let it be.

12. What's a song that reminds you of #5?
"Savin' Me" by Nickelback, and I blame this fanvideo for it.

13. Which of these ships do you love the most?
This question is evil, since I like most of my pairings equally for different reasons. Though when it comes right down to it, Simon/River. Even though it's an incestuous pairing, for me it's all about the chemistry. This also goes for any particular pairing in my fandoms, I look for the best chemistry between characters and go from there.

14. Which do you dislike the most?
Logan/Veronica.

15. If you could have any of these two pairings double date, who would it be? (even better if they're from different shows)
Dean/Jo and Six/Gaius!

16. Have #2 kissed yet? Elaborate if you'd like.
Unfortunately they haven't, but I would like them to!

17. Did #4 have a happy ending? If the show hasn't ended yet, do you think a happy ending is likely?
They haven't been together canonically in the show, and considering the turn of events that have happened I don't think anything is going to be definite. However if I had it my way, Claire would've returned to Odessa or contacted Zach right after the nuclear!Ted situation happened and she would've thanked him, hugged him and made a heartfelt promise to come back one day after everything stopped being hectic and slowed down. But that's wishful thinking on my part. But I hope a happy ending or resolution between them comes, because they've been through much together.

18. What would make you start shipping #13?
More interaction between the two, of either copies, especially between Caprica-Six and Athena. I liked the formed friendship and allience between Caprica and Boomer, but after Caprica snapped her neck I doubt they'll have a reconnection. Right now I'm banking on more Caprica and Athena scenes together, and their mission on protecting Hera.

19. If only one could happen, which would you prefer - #2 or #6?
God, definitely Weevil/Veronica. There's been plenty of subtextiness and playful flirting between those two since the first season, and if it ever happens in canon I'd be blissfully giddy, like you wouldn't believe.

20. You have the power to decide the fate of #10. What happens to them?
Veronica will call upon one of the vicious and heartless Six copies to break his neck and be done with it. Ah, multifandom crossovers, how I love thee.


TWoP is back! Yays!

Strange weather we're having. It was sunny and warm this morning, which is why I was wearing one of my cute short-sleeved shirts hoping that it would be what springtime should be, and once it hit around noonish dark clouds started rolling in. Later on in the afternoon we had massive on-and-off downpours of rain, and now guess what? It's clearing up again. Weird, but very typical.

Now I've got to study for a midterm. Blah.

is the song your talking about the one they hear throughout the finale? if you know the title I'll look for it- or if you find will you be nice and share? :D
Renée: Six. Temptress.rogueslayer452 on March 27th, 2007 02:21 am (UTC)
It's called "All Along The Watchtower", originally sung by Bob Dylan but I think in the episode it was covered by a band called BT4 or something or other. I haven't found it yet, sadly.

By the way, what did you think of the finale? I want to hear your thoughts. :)

ok- i havent found it but i'll look some more later- and I wrote a little of what I thought about the ep this morning :D so its one of my most recent entries

HAHAHAHA. I love the idea of Gaius, Six, Dean, and Jo all on a date. At the movies or something. And Jo stomping on Dean's foot 'cause he's ogling Six. Then he has to be like, "Sorry, baby! She's just a Fembot!"

/silliness

Hee! That would be an interesting interaction, indeed. Such a Dean thing to do. I'm giggling just thinking about it. There should be fanfic! XD

That's a cool meme!! I'm definitely snagging it!

I know some aren't fans of Dean and Jo getting together in the romantic sense, but I've actually been curious about them.

Yeah, same for me. At that point and even after Kripke's comment about 'the sisterly vibe' of No Exit, I don't think someone can say for sure what's going on between the two. I've never seen Jo as having the 'OMG!can't live without him' crush, and I really can't read through Dean when he's with her which never happened to me before. That's what I like the most. The roads someone can explore with the two of them in the fic verse.


(We hadn't had snow the whole winter, and now that spring is officially back, it rains and snows all day long lol, don't talk to me about how weird the weather is :D)

Even though I had no idea who most of the characters were that you were talking about, I enjoyed reading your views on couples in general, and what you look for in a 'ship. I think I might snag the meme; it seems like a good one.
Renée: Six/Sharon. Cylons.rogueslayer452 on March 30th, 2007 06:35 am (UTC)
Thanks. For me, I'm not entirely picky about certain 'ships, it's really all about the chemistry between characters and if I see it and like it, then it's all good from there. Perhaps that explains why I enjoy rare-pairings and mutl-shipping in many of my fandoms, because there's SO much chemistry with characters that have yet to be explored in canon itself.

Do the meme! It's fun, and I'd like to see your answers to the questions regarding 'shipping. :p

Narrowing down a certain amount of 'ships in that meme was very difficult for me due to exactly what you just said. I've always read anything in my fandoms -- any pairing, any new adventure that wasn't explored in canon. Along with the fact that in many fandoms, I have no OTP, no favorite. It's just a matter of tossing a coin and listing one of 'em.
