Baby we was making straight A's / But we was stuck in the dumb days

1. It's practically flooding outside right now. Yay rainy season!

2. Enjoyed this week's SGA.

a) This show so has turned into fanfic. Seriously.
b) Old!hologram!Rodney was full of awesome. You could feel the age to him, the deliberate way he moved. Hewlett is badass.
c) Oh, Atlantis! Without water! PROBABLY THE MOST HEARTBREAKING THING ABOUT THIS EP.
d) Enjoyed the cameos quite a lot. Jeannie! Woolsey! Todd!
e) The Keller/McKay made me awwwwww. A lot. I even hoped for a happy ending for them.
f) I WANT SO MUCH ANGSTY FANFIC ABOUT THIS TIMELINE. SO MUCH. (nightdog_barks has a gorgeous one here.)
g) I agree that the ending sucked. I think it would have rocked to end with John stepping into the stasis pod-thing, letting the ambiguity of whether or not he actually survives to go back carry them through the To Be Continued.
h) John has a great emoface.
i) Old!Lorne. Old!E. Lorne, even. "Evan"'s obviously fanon for a reason.
j) The props people have obviously watched Minority Report recently.


3. Here, have a bit of fic:

"So that's ten," John says, as they wait for their plane in one of O'Hare's bars.

Rodney looks exhausted, every inch the grouchy, jet-lagged tourist he's supposed to be. "Congratulations," he says. "You can count to ten. Next thing you know you'll be ready for grade two."

"You think we need one more?" John asks, downing his beer.

Rodney glares. "What I think is that you need your head checked before--"

John nods. "You think we need one more."

"--you do something that gets us all caught and--"

"Alright," John says. "We'll get one more."

He tosses a few bills on the counter and picks up his bags, getting ready to leave, ignoring Rodney as he says, "Are you even listening to me?"


4. Have an idea for remix that doesn't suck, but I know it will make it quite obvious that I wrote it. Fortunately, I don't actually care that much.

5. Horrific Algorithms midterm was horrific, but I made it far enough past the mean that I'm pretty sure I'm passing. The professor, however, is not pleased with the overall performance of the class and might make us all retake it. Which would be bad. And sad. And even more horrific.

6. Someone tried to find Open Your Eyes on sgastoryfinders. I have arrived, fandom! I have arrived!
