Anyway, I was thinking about SG-1 and fandom. As most of you know, I am a die-hard team fan. I'm happiest with team. Yay team! But I do have a Daniel-slant. I like when stories favor Daniel. I like archeaology and anthropology and history, writing, and mythology. This has nothing to do with the fact I have degrees in archeaology and anthropology that focused on mythology, writing, and history ;)
It's only natural. I get Daniel because he has the same interests as I do. I'm more like Sam, and I get Sam because I'm also a science buff. I gravitate to fandom stories that have a Daniel-slant or a Daniel and Sam slant. I also strongly strongly favor fiction with a Daniel and Jack slant. Go Jack and Daniel friendship! Team is always central. It trumps everything. It's very much like what I enjoy from the show. However, I am nothing like Jack or Teal'c. At all.
Which naturally means Jack and Teal'c are my fave characters to write. It makes no sense.
It's true. When it comes to writing, I am a Jack nut. I love to write Jack. I also love to write Teal'c. You will often see me ranting and raving over Jack this and Jack that. Total Jack fangirl when it comes to writing.
Total Daniel fangirl when it comes to reading. (But goodness, the fic burns!)
Total team fan overall. I get testy if I see Sam or Teal'c get wallpapered in a fic without good reason
So hmm. It just amuses me.
On that note, I'll do that five favorite episodes for the characters thingy that is on LJ. Mind you, my thoughts change on a daily basis so these aren't set in stone.
1.Abyss! YAY! *loves*
2.Cold Lazarus (This one grew on me and is one of the few eps that made me cry.)
3.Zero Hour (Jack writing to Hammond and angsting about his team? Guh.)
4.Chain Reaction. (I just like it.)
5.Shades of Gray (Would have been higher but...ep has some flaws.)
3.There But For the Grace of God
4.The Crystal Skull
3.Line in the Sand
5.Jolinar's Memories/The Devil You Know
1.Threshold (The end is a thing of beauty.)
3.Avatar (Broken Teal'c is the best.)
2.Line in the Sand
1.Flesh and Blood
2.The Powers That Be
3.Line in the Sand
4.The Quest Pt 2
