X-Files Movie a reality (or not) and where's the Daniel love?  
So, lately there has been some rumblings over the next X-Files movie by David Duchovny. Now, DD has done this repeatedly in the past and nothing ever comes out of it. But he's at it again and seems to be confident that the next X-Files movie may just be around the corner.

But this time he's not alone in his assertion. Gillian Anderson has also chimed in and believes that this time it could become a reality.

News on both DD and GA can be found here: X-Files rumblings

As for SG-1, it's no secret I have much love for all the characters. Well, mainly the original cast, though I enjoy the new cast, too. Just a preference of mine. But lately, man, I've encountered much Daniel hate. Mind you, in the past, I've encountered Sam hate and Jack hate and hate for other characters, but lately I've seen much love for them. But where's the Daniel love? *hugs him* I feel very alone in my Daniel love.

Oh, wow! I haven't really been into the X-Files for, oh, aaaaages, but if another movie were to come out... oooh... exciting! Maybe it'll actually prompt me to watch the final series.

*offers Daniel porn icon in place of Daniel love*

Whoa! I love that scene from Fail Safe.

X-Files...I was bad. I've never watched S9. I just...dunno. I liked Doggett. But by then, I wasn't too happy with the series. I hear that if this movie does get green-lighted, it will be a stand alone horror which would actually be nice, I think.

I love Daniel! He looks so good in a flag...

Indeed he does ;)

*is shocked*

what's not to love?

*resolves to put him in more fic* (not that that would ever be a problem :P)

Team love! I love all the characters, just in different ways. I just feel the need for more Daniel love right now.

Daniel hate?

*looks around*

Where are they? I'll go beat 'em up. (Just kidding, I promise...I think.)

Seriously, why are people complaining about Daniel, and where are you hanging out that you're seeing this bizarre behavior? I've not seen it at all, but then my flist is pretty small, so maybe I've just been hiding in my comfy little "I love everybody" corner of the fandom for too long.

Working for the Mandroid: fly memoonshayde on April 4th, 2007 04:59 pm (UTC)
I'm trying to remain firmly in the "I love everybody" camp, but I still seem to find everything else. I'm very good at that. Blame my curious nature? I'm always sticking my nose where it doesn't belong.

Rest assured, it's not here on my flist because you all rock. It's more outside on the fringes of LJ and other places.
Never At Home: Quest-Firenever_at_home on April 4th, 2007 04:06 pm (UTC)
Where have you been hearing this Daniel hate so that I know to avoid these places?

Daniel's my favorite fictional character, even more so than Mr. Spock, and that is saying a lot because I grew up loving Mr. Spock! I got into online fandom because of Michael Shanks and his portrayal of Dr. Daniel Jackson.
Working for the Mandroid: SG1moonshayde on April 4th, 2007 05:02 pm (UTC)
It's generalized. It's not anywhere on my flist. I'm trying to think exactly where I started to feel it...I think it was an offshoot of that whole big meltdown in the SGA fandom. So there was some SG-1 stuff my extension. And then it just went from there.

So my immediate reaction is like gah! I want some Daniel love!

I mean, I'm not overly fond of his characterization these days but I still love the character. I love them all. I need me some character love.
annerb: Danielannerbhp on April 4th, 2007 04:11 pm (UTC)
Daniel hate? Sorry, I live in a sphere of no hate. It's DANIEL, for goodness' sake. I love him like a rabid fangirl loves babyfic. Early earnest Daniel. Post descension, mysteriously buffed up Daniel. Throwing a fit in "A Small Step" Daniel. Wise, older and slightly jaded Daniel who was so melancholy at first seeing Atlantis Daniel. And omg, the conversation with Jack in Divide and Conquer? How perfect was that?

Sorry, got a little sidetracked there. I think my material point was that I love Daniel. You are SOOOO not alone. :)
Working for the Mandroid: Daniel (Heroes)moonshayde on April 4th, 2007 05:04 pm (UTC)
Ack, so much Daniel love in this post alone!

I really shouldn't venture past the shiny gates of my flist. Because it can be scary out there. I'm happy that my flist generally loves everyone because then that makes me happy and when I'm happy I can enjoy the show and the fandom more.

Nervous, Messed-Up Marionette: Daniel BoB b/wsuperbadgirl on April 4th, 2007 04:13 pm (UTC)
Do people hate Daniel because he was "mean" once or twice to precious, precious Vala? Or just general hate. There's been general haters around for a long time.

I still love the pre-ascension Daniel, and am rather indifferent (but not hateful toward) post-ascension Daniel.
Working for the Mandroid: Daniel/Weir--The Lookmoonshayde on April 4th, 2007 04:57 pm (UTC)
Just a continuation of the general hate, I think. I went venturing out because I was lookign for stuff to serve as a pick me up and oops. I never seem to venture into the right places. I should just stay on my flist.

I prefer pre-ascension Daniel to post-Ascension Daniel myself, but I can usually rationalize my way out of it. Or at least blame the writers because that's easier ;)

What sort of back alleyways and crack dens have you been hanging in to find Daniel Hate?!? *grin* I haven't seen it on my flist thankfully, but then I haven't seen anything much on it recently since RL has been requiring more than its fair share of my attention of late.
Working for the Mandroid: Daniel and Teal'c Brothersmoonshayde on April 4th, 2007 04:54 pm (UTC)
I'm good at it! My flist is good. It's when I'm bored and I started venturing outside of my flist I find the scary.

When I need a distraction, I always seem to find the wrong kind ;)

Daniel's awesome. Sure, he's got his faults, but who doesn't? His flaws make him that much more endearing, and I love him for them.
Working for the Mandroid: and beyondmoonshayde on April 4th, 2007 04:52 pm (UTC)
I love his faults. I love all their faults. it makes me happy because I don't like perfect people.

Poo on those silly people. Daniel is great.

Oooh, another X-Files film. I just hope that it's better than the first one. It was alright. It might be fun to visit again.
Working for the Mandroid: Daniel/Weir--The Lookmoonshayde on April 5th, 2007 10:45 pm (UTC)
Cute icon ;)

Yeah, I'm hoping for a good film, if it ever comes to pass. It would fun to go back and revisit it. I'll always love X-Files.
beanpotbeanpot on April 4th, 2007 05:20 pm (UTC)
Sigh - it exhausts me when character hate bleeds out. Daniel is just Daniel and I love how layered he has gotten in the past few years. The more layers the better - for dessert or characters.

And the SGA fandom blew up again? Le sigh...

Working for the Mandroid: yearnmoonshayde on April 5th, 2007 10:48 pm (UTC)
Since I am not emotionally invested in the SGA fandom, I will go and read different wank from it. And whoa. I don't know. That fandom has some issues. Sometimes I think it makes SG-1 look pretty tame. It was an interesting read from a psychological and anthropological perspective, though.

I came across someone the other day who said that they'd always hated Daniel from the beginning. I just don't get it. Daniel is AWESOME.

I can't fathom watching a show for 10 years, all the while hating one of the main characters. It took me all of 7 episodes to realize I couldn't stomach watching SG-1 with Vala around, so I, y'know, left rather than let that aggravation fester into something worse.

And of course it goes without saying that I can't fathom hating Daniel, of all characters. I've heard the argument he's hated because he used to get in the way of running down corridors and pretty, violent explosions, but that faded away post-ascension.

Or maybe he's hated because he's so pretty. ;)

Buh? People hate Daniel? I've heard of Sam hate, but Daniel? Are they smoking something? I mean, even if I have favorite characters, I still love them all (well, not so much Kinsey and Simmons, but they're minor and supposed to be unlikeable). Silly people don't know what they're missing. *boggles*

You are *so* not alone in the Daniel love. One of reasons I gave SG-1 a try was that the 3 minutes of Daniel we get in SGA's "Rising" made me love the character.

(also, I missed your birthday while I was off not being online, so HAPPY BIRTHDAY! I hope this year brings much luck in things working out for the good)
Working for the Mandroid: Missed Nap Timemoonshayde on April 5th, 2007 11:08 pm (UTC)
You have the people who honestly do not like a character. It happens. it's normal. But there are other people that will either spew character-hate or villianize a character because it gets in the way of their world view.

There are some Sam fans - not all, obviously - that see Daniel as a roadblock for Sam/Jack. Why? I don't even know. Some of the issue probably stems from the whole blow out back a couple of years ago, but that was before my time and I don't dwell on it. Then, there are some people - again not all - who hate Sam because she is a roadblock for Jack/Daniel. Those are the major ones I've seen, but I've also witnessed Jack fans hating Cameron. Jonas fans hating Daniel. Daniel fans hating Jonas. Cameron fans hating Jack. Jack villified in Sam/Daniel fic. Sam villified in Daniel/Vala fic...it's endless.

Teal'c normally stays out of the fight. I think his fans know something the rest of the fandom doesn't...

So, sometimes I just need some team!love or some character love. Lately, I'm feeling needy in the Daniel department.

And thanks for the birthday wishes. I hope this year brings me some luck, too.

Nialla: Tied Upnialla42 on April 4th, 2007 08:33 pm (UTC)
The ones I've seen dissing Daniel in the past generally fell into two camps:

1) They don't like his "pacifist" attitude in a "miltary" show (even though some point out to them Daniel's not a pacifist, he will shoot, but that's not his first option), or

2)Daniel got in the way of their shippy designs for Sam/Jack, because they should be shagging instead of wasting time being friends with Daniel (didn't help that Jack/Daniel often had such great banter, while Sam/Jack, not so much), and/or they felt that Daniel fans were the most vocal segments of the anti-Sam/Jack group.

Engh. Whatever. To each his/her own. I like intelligent characters acting intelligent, yet still having human flaws. That's Daniel.
Chibi Hoshi: Sci-Fihoshi_reed on April 4th, 2007 11:37 pm (UTC)
They seriously need to open their eyes. Daniel sure as hell shot dead the Jaffa without opening his mouth or blinking in Family Ties.
I think those that hated Pre-Ascension Daniel are more apt to like Post-Ascension Daniel.

As for group 2: Vala took care of the obstacle. Daniel wasn't in the way of Sam/Jack anymore.

So where is the Daniel Hate coming from? It makes no sense!!!

The idea of a new XF movie...I don't know. I just can't see it being done well. But, I have no emotional attachment left to that show, so if it's awful I won't be crushed. I'd be curious to see what direction they went in with the story, at least.

As for SG-1, it's no secret I have much love for all the characters. Well, mainly the original cast, though I enjoy the new cast, too. Just a preference of mine. But lately, man, I've encountered much Daniel hate. Mind you, in the past, I've encountered Sam hate and Jack hate and hate for other characters, but lately I've seen much love for them. But where's the Daniel love? *hugs him* I feel very alone in my Daniel love.

People hate Daniel. But...but...but...it's Daniel!

Okay, seriously, I've never gotten the character-hate. There are characters I like less than others, and times when the way a character was written made me angry (but I can usually wank it so that their actions make sense to me), but for the most part there's no one on this show I really dislike (well, certain minor characters, but I think we're supposed dislike them). I can't imagine watching a show and hating one of the major characters. I've been bored silly by characters before, but actually hating them, not so much.

Fortunately, I haven't seen any of this on my f-list. I get annoyed enough when I see people diss Landry. ;)

You don't have to feel alone in your Daniel love. I have Daniel love in spades. ;)

I'll always love the X-Files. I hope to do a reviewing of it again soon since I was in high school/college when it originally aired and I'm much different now. The school ended poorly and I wish the last season had never been made, but ah well. if this movie is ever made, it would be nice to revisit. it's just supposed to be a stand alone horror type.

Okay, seriously, I've never gotten the character-hate.

Me either. I love all the characters in different ways. I've even warmed up to a Vala a little since they softened her in what I've seen as S10. (And my issue with Vala stems more from the fandom than anything else.) My faves are definitely the classic characters, especially Jack, Daniel, Sam and Teal'c. But I just recently finished watching S6 and Jonas wasn't bad. I'm a fan of Janet and Hammond. I really like Cameron. So...I just don't get the craziness, even if I have been known to spew some extreme dislike from time to time. I've gotten over it. Though, in the end, everyone is free to their own opinion, whether I like it or not. it just seems that the dislike gets excessive at times.
