Fandom Babble (SG-1, Atlantis, Buffy)  
Just finished watching SG-1 and Atlantis. Now I must ramble like the fangirl I am. ^_^

SG-1- Is it just me, or is someone trying to kill this show? The quality has gone down hill so fast it's practically a vertical drop. *disgusted* We had, what, five seconds of Daniel total? Then there's all the forced UST between Carter and her commanding officer. (How do you spell 'conflict of interest'?) I don't care what Teal'c and Jack said at the end of the ep-- it was all Sam's fault. 'Cause any more she's just an overwrought bitch. And there were two of her. *kicks writers*
I miss Daniel.
Also, poor Teal'c. His entire presence in this episode is summed up as, 'here I am holding a gun that turns out to be useless. and I have hair now. woo.' *sigh*

Atlantis- Not crazy about the plot, but-- so much Carson Beckett, I am giddy with joy! I love Dr. Beckett. I want to take him home, and feed him cookies, and make him talk to me in his pretty accent. He's just so cute. Ford is going to get his ass kicked, though, as he was being a brat _and_ being mean to Carson. No one messes with my pretty Scottish doctor! I also like Sheppard, because he foiled the plans of the Ja'nai (sp?) with such cheer and ease. Is it just me, or are the writers trying to get us to believe that Sheppard has a thing for Weir? *is suspicious* Oh well, I remain a devoted fan of Beckett/McKay. They had that little exchange of each other's names at the end. *happiness*

Buffy- I am severely annoyed. Spike is an awesome, kick-ass, attitude-ridden Master Vampire with abandonment issues and the ability to love deeply. He is not a stupid horndog who pants after Buffy. I want my Spike back!

I have every intention of watching the new Battlestar tomorrow... *loves Boomer* Yes, I am a fandom geek. Why did you ask?

Oyasuminasai,
Meredith

ETA: Looking at the above, I realize it sounds like I don't support any het pairings at all. I just wanted to state that I'm not completely anti-het. I like Padme/Anakin, Ron/Hermoine, and I even have a sneaking likeness for... *is embarrassed* Buffy/Angel. However, I hate it when writers try to force two totally incompatible characters together, compromise them, and call it 'romance'. *snorts* Besides, I like my sci fi without the soap-opera, generally. That's what fanfiction is for. ^_^

That's a really interesting idea.
Actually, I could almost believe it from that perspective. I mean, Spike has definite severe Angel-issues and I could see him going after Buffy just to torment Angel.

*nods* Spike's goal then would be to be the one in control. To wrap Buffy around his finger and throw it in Angel's face, or something like that.

But that isn't how the series does it - they make him very out of character and love-sick puppy. The kicker is, I can believe the Buffy half of the romance a little bit, but not the Spike.
Exactly. Spike loves, but when he does, it's a deep, twisted, consuming thing-- not a stealing-your-sweater thing. He'll do anything for the one he loves (look at Dru), but he doesn't expose the 'weakness' of loving unless he's certain he's safe and in control.

*holds out crack*
You push your product well, little lady. ^_~

Angel does sorta get a good pair in his series, but, well, he's cursed. So obviously things go wrong.
'Cause, other wise, it wouldn't be a curse. ^___^

Exactly. He'd go in entirely as a kick to Angel. He may accidentally feel a bit himself in the process, but I'd be skeptical of that. And he does use it to push Angel's buttons.

And they try that a little with Buffy. There is the scary/creepy obsessive stalking thing with the robot and all (wait, shoot, am I spoiling stuff?) but it's not done very spike-like.
I love how Spike is an evil bastard and yet I feel really sorry for him.

It's easier when you have high-ish quality stuff to push.

Now that I'd like to see. Angel deserves to have his buttons pushed-- and often. ^_~

(wait, shoot, am I spoiling stuff?)
Dear, I've been reading fanfiction. You can't spoil me any more than that has. *is such a bad girl*

I love how Spike is an evil bastard and yet I feel really sorry for him.
Precisely. That's the edge they need to play. He's so old and yet, at the same time frozen at a period of uncertainty... he's tough, but William still exists, kicked, bruised and hurt by the world, at his core.

*would cuddle Spike, but has no desire to die*
