Oh Dear Gods - it's Radek and Rodney!

" Casablanca Penguins"

And now - off to reread some McShep penguin crack fic.

Ran across a request for a SGA vis search on [ profile] stargate_search and in my tracking that one down to see I ran across this. Please be warned, if you loved the character of Dr. Carson Beckett, grab the Kleenex before watching. It's that good.

'Carson's Letter', created by quietandsneaky

Sadly... thanks to MGM and TPTB, that is all ...

[No spoilers - honest. If you know anything about the show, you'll know that the following can be seen as generic comments.]

Three things:

#1: Radek is *so* made of win! :}

#2: Sheppard + things that can explode = BAD.

#3: Daniel + soft, floppy sweater = oh Yeah!

That is all ... for now. At least, until next week's episode.

Life is trying to be in the water closet right now, so I could really use some fic to help me along. Zelenka fic preferred, but any good team fic would be good.

Help me Live Journal - you're my only hope.

Or something like that.

Okay, I know I'm not the first to post about this, nor will I be the last. I know shit happens and shows get canceled. I also understand the finances and dynamics of the entertainment industry to some extent - I learned a lot during the whole 'Save Daniel Jackson' campaign.

But DAH-UM! At least The Boys @ Bridge could be honest that they're pulling the plug on SGA so they can roll out their bright, shiny, new, 'cheaper coz most of the sets will be ship board' & 'we'll use new cheap actors' show. Now I haven't trusted TB@B since about 4th season of SG-1 when the M&M Twins came on board and my trust level has only take the low road since then. And I'll admit I was leery of SGA at first, but was pleasantly surprised by not only the casting [McShep, SGA-1, Carson and Radek], but the fact the plots were usually good. And this year even more so. So of course TB@B shoot SGA in the shorts.

So knowing that there's probably no way in hell we'll see it make it for S6, I won't totally give up hope. I remember the 'Save Star Trek' campaign in the 60's. I was a part of that. Ditto 'SOS - Save Our The Sentinel', 'Save Stargate SG-1' in/around S6 and certainly SDJ, which, despite what TB@B may say, worked and worked well. I will watch the remaining episodes of the season with love and enjoyment. And I will do my part, small as it may be, to continue the stories of the men and women of the Pegasus Galaxy in my fic. And I'll even consider giving SGU a chance.

But no where does it say I'm going to give it my heart.

Okay, when I first started watching this, my astronomy frustrated friend [ profile] laurinrose came immediately to mind. But quick on the heels of that flash came the second brain-explosion to a certain M. Rodney McKay, PhD.

And right then the brain pan did a sharp 90 degree turn leaving the soft gray squishy stuff sitting behind wondering "WTF!?!".

I defy you to watch this and not see an entire and complete 'Stargate:Atlantis Science Dept.' musical unfold and playing live-time right behind your very eyelids.

My thanks to '#1 Dinosaur' and his blog "Musings of a Dinosaur".

I simply had to find the right words to bring it to life.

Which Stargate Atlantis character are you most like?
Your Result: Dr. Radek Zelenka

Zelenka is smart, and can figure just about anything out if he wanted to, but unfortunately, sometimes lets people get the better of him. You need to stand up for yourself sometimes, but it's alright. Deep down inside you care for the people around you, and you can overcome your fears to help your friends.

I just got this in an email from a friend. Julie Caitlin-Brown is Don Davis' convention agent.

Dear Fans and Friends of Don S. Davis,

So many of you have been touched by not only the work and art of Don S. Davis,
but by the man himself, who always took the time to be with you at the
appearances he loved, that it is with a tremendous sense of loss I must share
with you that Don passed away from a massive heart attack on Sunday morning,
June 29th.

On behalf of his family and wife, Ruby, we thank you for your prayers and
condolences. A family memorial where Don's ashes will be scattered in the ocean
will take place in a few weeks, and should you wish to, please make a donation
in lieu of flowers or gifts to the American Heart Association in Don's memory.
At this time there is no official address for cards, should that be made
available, I will send it along immediately.

Julie Caitlin Brown

I am just speechless. Don was a wonderful person and someone I will miss talking with at cons very much. It was the first Gatecon we talked about having both been in the Army and all the 'interesting' things that could bring into a person's life and how he had a stuffed 24" diamondback rattlesnake at home in his bedroom.

Rest easy, Captain Davis, US Army, ret. We'll hold the line for you.

Passed on from Jewel Staite's blog on MySpace:

"I do a lot of laughing at work, and not just because I share a trailer with Jason Momoa and I'm pretty sure he's putting something through those vents to make me oddly euphoric. Seriously, they should do tours of Jason's part of the trailer alone. It's like King Tut's tomb meets Clan of the Cave Bear and I'm both in awe and worried for him. "

This just sounds 'way too cool. :}

A drabble written for the McShep LJ community challenge of a drabble tree.

By Rowan / [ profile] seticat
Written on: 4/26/08
Challenge #2 on McShep Match - Drabble Tree. Write a drabble based on a line in a previously written drabble. I chose a line from alyburns' drabble and used it for my first line.


"I threw rocks," John said with a shrug.

Elizabeth looked at Shepard and then each team member. " Let me get this straight. You drove off a culling team of Wraith with rocks?"

Ronon just shrugged. "Yeah." Her eyes turned to him. " What's wrong with that?"

"All the high tech weapons available in two galaxies and you throw clods of dirt."

"Hey, McKay, back off. It's called 'field expediency.' And maybe if your high tech hadn't failed, we wouldn't have needed low tech." John turned back to Weir. "It worked. That's what counts."

Everyone had to agree with that.

You can read all the others ones behind the cur. Just beware that 'There Be Slash'. : Read more... )

Definition of "Hunger"
" A feeling of discomfort and a need to eat, caused by a lack of food;
" A strong desire

Author's Note: A big grammer glitch corrected.


He had never had a hunger quite like this. This almost primal, driving need. He'd had compulsions before. After all, he was a man and only human. The only way he'd been able to survive those Wraith filled years on the run was to suppress all his baser needs. Women. Drink. Wealth. Everything was pushed down into a box and shoved away to the furthest back corners of his mind. Except the need to kill Wraith. That he gave free rein to. But this? This was different.

Now he understood why the snack bag said "Betcha can't eat just one."

[ profile] paintedspires is an SGA fanart challenge in which a group of SGA artists respond to prompts submitted by the rest of fandom. There are over 70 artists signed up, and from March 10-16, they're asking for prompts from you! Any character, any pairing, any genre. Click the link! Help them out! Get pretty art in the bargain!

FWIW: The art in the prompt banner was done by [ profile] pentapus - one of my favorite SGA artists. Even if you don't submit a prompt, keep an eye on this LJ. I've got a feeling that 'Good Stuff' [tm] is gonna be coming out of this.

Scientisty... it should be a word. Really.

Anyway, David Nykl, who plays SGA's Czech astrophysicist Dr. Radek Zelenka and is rapidly becoming my favorite character in the SGA universe, has a birthday coming up Feb. 7th. And a very talented fan created this wonderful vid.

So go see Radek in all of his scientisty goodness.

Really. :}

Finally! Here's my piece for the "The Czech is in the Male Thing-a-Thon". Late, as most of my writing has been of late, but at least I'm writing again. And, again, over 500 words. I must be on a roll or something.

Anyway, here's a little Radek Zelenka /Evan Lorne piece I hope you'll like. It's not very slashy, but I like the potential is presents.

Title: Radek’s Flock
Author: Rowan [ profile] seticat
Pairing: Radek Zelenka / Evan Lorne
Rating: PG [only because it implies the possibilities]
Recipient: rosewildeirish
Word Count: 2303
Spoilers: S4 “Quarantine”
Author's Note: This was written for the “Czech is in the Male” fic exchange. The prompts given me were ‘snark, affection, peril’. Well… two out of three ain’t bad unless you count being around Rodney as always being in peril of some sort. There is one that fits all three concepts running around in the back of my head, but it’s refusing to come out of its burrow right now. Perhaps another time. The inspiration for this comes from several canon areas – I’m sure no one will have trouble guessing what. The fact that Radek has a sister is canon, but the name used here is one I gave her in a back story challenge fic I wrote called “Wings”.

I have been ‘way behind on getting things done so my pure and heartfelt thanks to [ profile] amycat1959for her lightning fast help in the dark of the night.
