It'd be fun to mesh the mythologies of Stargate and X-Files and have the Asgard be actually kind of evil and playing nice with SG-1 while planning to take over the world one day. It'd have to be AU, of course, if only for the fact that they're all dead as doornails.

Stop it, self! I don't need any more plotbunnies!

While I'm not a monogamous kind of fan where I obsessively focus all my attention on a single fandom, I do tend to do one at a time. Normally. At the moment, however, I have three fandoms competing for my attentions; one recent, one not-so-recent, and one decidedly fucking un-recent. Respectively, Atlantis, X-Files, and original Star Wars. It's getting a bit confusing.

(Better late than never reaction to the) Atlantis finale! Carson, you've come a long way. Sure, John already flew the city, and that was freakishly awesome, but Carson got to fly it BACK TO EARTH. I am SO proud of him. Ronon, thanks for not staying dead. Teyla, thanks for... whatever it was you did. Major Paul Davis, thanks for being there. SERIOUSLY. I didn't see his name and freaked out when he appeared on screen. We hadn't seen him much in, like, forever.

John, Rodney, thanks for being beyond awesomely awesome characters. And to John for getting whumped on a regular basis (but points deducted for not wearing enough leather).

I will seriously miss this show.
Can't wait for the movie. :D

No power at our house which means no heat, so we're spending the night in a crappy motel after driving to McMinnville DURING THE ONLY TIME IT SNOWED DURING THE DAY with flickering internet and a television that must be as old as I am. We don't know when our power will be back on or if we'll be able to go home tomorrow, or how long the cats will have to freeze without us. It had better freaking not be long.

But I just found out the Mulder In Jeopardy archive still exists. For now, I am happy. All I need to do is refress my wifi connection every two minues.

Woohoo! I has X-Files! Woohoo!

I have to blog about the new X-Files movie while I still have my head full of it.

It is this: different, but not in a bad way. There wasn't a hell of a lot in the way of supernatural, and the actual case wasn't. Not a big deal for me. Some of my favorite episodes were the more old-fashioned serial killer hunt kind of thing. When I don't know whether there's going to be any more after this, it wasn't my first choice - that would be Mulder kicking some serious alien ass - but this would have been my second. (Although the date set for the colonization is only a few years off, so you never know. Here's hoping.)

Same old Mulder. He's still got his sunflower seed fixation and the pencils in the ceiling. The beard was a surprise, but (thankfully) temporary. I can't say how pleased I was that he got to wear civvies for the whole thing, because he always looked so good in jeans (and without a shirt too! We got a little bit of everything!). He didn't change one bit, and I'm glad for that. I like his good old wise-cracking, smart-ass, constantly injured self, and I wouldn't have him any other way. (Except kicking alien butt.) I noticed we also seem to be continuing the tradition of whumping the poor bastard. :D

I'd have to say that probably my favorite moment was when Skinner was cradling an injured Mulder. In the case of this show I've always been a straight shipper, but the slasher in me kind of went wild. It was too sweet.

The two-headed dog, on the other hand, was rather creepy.

I have got to start collecting this series.

I really have no color sense, so it took me a long time to come up with this scheme. I like it, and I'm thinking I'll keep it for fall and change it back to blue for the winter.

SPEAKING OF FALL: It is my favorite season of the year, and since I started school in Eugene I don't get to enjoy the full effects at home like I used to. There's no smell of apples, somebody keeps blowing the leaves off the sidewalks (and I really wish they wouldn't; leaf imprint patterns look so cool later), and I'm usually too busy to notice how fall it is anyway. And really, it's a city, albeit a small one, and seasons are different in cities. While I do like having everything I need within the range of a brisk walk or a bus trip, I don't think I'll live in a city again when I finish school (whenever that may be). I like the peace and the quiet and the fresh air of the country too much. I'll deal with the isolation and how creepy it gets at night. I've been doing that all my life.

It looks like I'm coming up on watching Doctor Who S2 for the second time in as many weeks (although probably this time with the commentary tracks on). Jessica really wants to see Atlantis when we get back and I'm only too happy to oblige. As soon as we finish that (as well as the final two episodes of Firefly) I'm getting her addicted to the Doctor.

Happy day, my ReBoot video is finally finished, and after many frustrating and questionable mishaps, saved without any damage to the synchrony (word?). I figured out a way around saving the video in separate pieces, which always seems to ruin that.

Season 8 is not as fun as the earlier X-Files. Not by a long shot. I sort of knew that, but I didn't realize the intenisty of the "is this seriously X-Files?" feeling until I watched half the season. For some reason it was going okay until Mulder came back, and then it just felt weird. I'm not sure how I managed to watch every episode of those last two seasons on air.

I'm almost CRAVING Atlantis. I'm not sure why.

Just over two weeks until I move again, and I'm starting to get restless. What the hell happened to my summer?

Who! Who!

Holy buckets.

Somethow I managed to miss half the X-Files episodes that made the show absolutely incredible. The other half I managed not to pay attention to when I saw them about once. How, how could I not have seen The Field Where I Died? And Amor Fati? I almost died. This show is amazing me on levels I had no idea it had. I used to prefer the little episodes, the onesies, with the weird things they went off hunting, but now that I understand the colonization storyline more fully, I'm beginning to really like it. The fact that Mulder's special just sends me bouncing off the walls (that sort of thing appeals to me just a bit). And according to imdb, there's another movie in the making and I am so freaking excited. The date is 2009. Unfortunately. I want to see Mulder save the world, by god, and I'm not going to miss this one in the theater. I still can't believe I missed the last one.

I'm in season 7 now.

Also, today I finished my Doctor Who scarf! Finally! I smell a Halloween costume.

What the hell? Eight textbooks for  three classes? I remember when history classes just had history books.

I am watching X-Files again. It was a joke when I said it, but I'm in a knitting frenzy and I a) don't want to watch anything I have, b) am having to wait between discs of Homicide from Netflix, and c) can only take so much of BtVS at a time. That show is pretty cheesy. Firefly really was so much better. An added bonus of X-Files is that I'm familiar enough with the episodes that I know more or less which ones Mulder gets the crap kicked out of him, and I can just listen the rest of the time. That man was whumped on a lavel almost unequaled in fandom.

My scarf is MONSTER long and approaching 8 feet if it hasn't reached it already. I desperately want to finish before I go back to Eugene because my free time will disappear fast. I've been working on it so much that I've developed a sore shoulder from throwing the yarn over the end of the needle. Injuries from knitting are possible. And they don't have to involve stabbing yourself.
