Fall Break

Hey guys! It's fall break at last, but I seem to be getting more SU done than AJ - though I think I've finally pinned down exactly how I want this chapter of AJ to go. We'll see what comes first.

Simulacrum (1/1)

Locality: Simulacrum (1/1)
Characters: clone!Jack O'Neill, Daniel Jackson, Jack O'Neill, Jonas Quinn, OCs
Pairings: Jack O'Neill/Sam Carter
Summary: In 2003, Jack O'Neill was cloned. This is his story.
Series: This is techincially a spin-off of Sights Unseen and the whole unfinished SG1 arc and Ancient!John 'verse, taking place near the very end of S5. It is, yes, the start of the SGU part of the 'verse. As such, it is part of Locality.
Notes: This story is a spin-off of "Fragile Balance," in which a 15 year old clone of Jack is made. This story covers the 6 years from his creation in August 2003 and his graduation from the Air Force Academy. This is largely his story, but mentions events thru S5 of AJ, which has yet to be written.

A General Query


I've hereby decided I'm going to start saving so I can visit Europe after I graduate (theoretically, next Christmas). I'm still very much in the planning stages, but if anyone has any sugesstions of places I should go or timeframes I should avoid (for instance, London circa Christmas, yay or nay?) please let me know.

I'm leaning towards England and maybe parts of France right now, depending on how much I can save, but if anyone has any better suggestions, I'm all ears. 

Just A Thought

With the new season of H50 out, I was thinking what is the last show I watched just to watch?

I watch H50 for the explosions and the McDanno (there's no other reason to watch, really). I watch SPN for Destiel, or used to. I watch NCIS mostly out of a sense of vicious selfloathing. And Sherlock for Sherlock himslef and Game of Thrones because it's the I Love Lucy of the modern era and gives you a conversation topic any where you go.

But then I realized: Stargate: Atlantis was the last show I watched and enjoyed in its entirely. Sure, there were parts I liked less than others, but SGA was the last show I genuinely loved. And I miss it so badly. Even able to rewatch it whenever I want, I miss it. I want new episodes. (Well, no, I don't; it's hard enough rewritting 5 seasons. I don't need more, but you know what I mean). I want more.

Or maybe I just want better television standards. Who knows?

Gubernator (1/?)

The Ancient!John 'verse: Gubernator (1/?)
Characters: Ancient!John Sheppard, Rodney McKay, sentient!Atlantis
Pairings: John Sheppard/Rodney McKay
Summary: Peculiar travel suggestions are dancing lessons from god.
Series: part 1 of #39 in the Ancient!John 'verse. Part of Locality.
Notes: We are finally out of the eternal July 2007... barely. 1) More on the new base psychologist next installment. 2) The timeline of S3 is here but what it boils down to is "Ascensiones" was in March/April and Elizabeth died on 17 August 2006. 3) There are 6 planets in the Loegrian system. They are, in order: Latunda, Vacuna, Suedela, Nova Loegria, Arimanius, and Cybelle. Nova Loegria has 5 moons, Arimanius 27, and Cybelle 18. They all have Roman/Arthurian meanings. Arimanius is an obscure Roman Britian god who possibly came up through the Mithraic tradition, who may be the Roman cognate of Angra Mainyu, the Zoroastrianism "destructive spirit". Plutarch calls him "the worst spirit" and even "Satan." 4) Nebreus is one of the Alteran urbs-naves, destroyed in 8273 BC, about two years before Ianus is born. His mother, Beatrix Aquilidea Nebriae Tribuna, was one of the refugees who fled to Atlantis, making Iohannes 1/4th Nebrian. His nomen, Ianideus, follows the Nebrian convention. In this 'verse, they are also the builders of the short-lived Orion and the research station on which it was found. 5) Oh, and Gubernator means pilot
