Nominated?  
I have been nominated for fanfic awards? This came as quite the surprise! I just started posting them online like three months ago. I am not even finished posting them on all the sites that I want to post on!

It appears that some of my Stargate SG-1 fics have been nominated for the 2004 Stargate SG-1 awards. Go figure. Of course, I am kind of puzzled why the fics I consider to be my worst were the ones nominated! None of my favorite ones are up for grabs. I think that is hilarious. I may not win, but hey, it's pretty cool to be new and get nominated three times. That works for me :) Made my day.

For those of you not in the know, or who are in the know, Stargate is currently reigning as my favorite sci-fi topic. I still adore the original Star Wars trilogy and I always will, but I am currently ticked off with George Lucus and I need a break from SW for awhile. If not, I might accidentally blow up my characters in my fic out on anger towards him.

Back to Stargate, the series--which is entering its twilight years--ranks up there on my fave list along with X-Files. And like X-Files, the writers are starting to get full of themselves and messing with the characters to the point where I am getting antsy in your typical fannish sort of way. It sucks if they end in decline like X-Files did, but big shots never learn, do they?

Anyway, so that is my totally geeky post for the day. Stay tuned for more geekdom in the coming weeks :)

So in the spirit of my Stargate geekiness...

You like Whumped Daniel! Oh, the angst...

Ah, yes. Got to love it :) But once I start school, I'll get some more seriousness posted along with my sci-fi hobbies. Mortuary remains! Whoo! That'll put a positive spin on my journal, right? Heh...

Congratulations on your nominations. That's wonderful. Good luck and I hope you win!

I've been thinking about Ep 3 (aside from how much I don't want to see it and won't go) and wondering if it has a title yet. I think that GL should just skip straight to the chase and call it "Worst Episode Ever" (in the tradition of Comicbook Guy), because really, when you look at Ep 1 and Ep 2, it's not like he's been working on an upward trend with this trilogy.

And he doesn't need my $14.50 anymore than he needs anyone else's admission price. I think everyone should boycott it because it's so bad and it's OUR money he's wasting, in the end. And our time.

Congrats, moonshade, on your nomination! What site are you posted on? I still wouldn't mind checking them out!

My site
Thank you! My site actually needs updating, and I found some sneaky typos in my fics, but they can be found at:

http://www.geocities.com/celtic_mysts/fanfic.html

It's a Stargate Sg-1 fanpage. I am currently editting and reworking my Final Fantasy fic that you had been interested in too. So once that is all set, I will post it on it's own little page. Been busy with getting errands done for school :)

Drawn...the pull
Sorry. I wish I could boycott, but truth is, I still love Star Wars and I will go and see the third episode. If it blows my mind (don't expect it) then I will go and see it again. But once will do for me. I am not expecting miracles here.

Thanks for congrats :)

Re: Drawn...the pull
I think it's best you're not expecting any miracles. The time for miracles has long since past. The Lord of the Rings trilogy is hands down the Star Wars caliber trilogy of our generation. Which says a lot about how much the SW prequels SUCK. Thank you very much, Mr. Lucas, for being a complete tool. You did great.
