make it so.  
Oh my god. I had the best dream ever this morning. I dreamed that I was catching up on an unwatched episode of Alias. In it, Sark finds out that he's one of two alien children, a hybrid a la X-Files. As someone exposits the backstory there are these visuals: eons ago, we had alien visitors who built a city in the Arctic; a icy valley filled with buildings resembling tall, smooth white tubes. At some point, a catastrophe occurred--an earthquake--and the city crumbled. Two pregnant aliens were trapped in the collapsed rubble and were miraculously preserved. Flash forward: government excavations in the Arctic uncover the preserved alien lifeforms, and they're used for experiments.

So, Sark hears this news and starts to cry, because he's so bitter and furious to find out that he's the product of freakish government experimentation. This completely fucks with his head. He feels used. He goes into hiding with Nadia, who is possibly the other alien child, and they set themselves up in a safe house, in an apartment he's used before. Unfortunately it's not long before APO finds them. Several agents burst in to capture Sark. As they surround him and advance with their guns, he desperately tries to wake the latent mental powers he's been told he has. With intense effort, he succeeds and forces the agents back one by one, controlling them with his mind.

Sydney, Vaughn, and Jack arrive and there's great confusion--Sydney hadn't been told anything about what's going on. A demonstration follows in which Sark, viciously relishing the moment, commands the agents to come here, and then to sit on the floor, then to stand again, then to sit again--a series of sharp, humiliating commands, one after the other. Sydney watches in amazement. When she understands what's been done to Sark, she immediately becomes angry at the government and protective of him--eventually she helps him escape again and hides him.

In the dream, I watched this and ran around my living room in circles, shrieking in excitement, and then dashed to LJ, which had exploded with screaming, squeeing posts. Everyone was going crazy, and Sark was suddenly this intensely sympathetic character, everyone's new woobie, and you could tell that a million romantic Sark/Syd stories wouldn't be long in coming.

Hi! Hope you don't mind me commenting on your dream. One, I think it's amazing that you can remember your dream in such vivid detail. Two, it would be an incredible storyline if Alias used it. Always had a soft spot for Sark.

Of course not! :)

One, I think it's amazing that you can remember your dream in such vivid detail.

I'm occasionally lucky that way--I wish it would happen more often.

Two, it would be an incredible storyline if Alias used it.

And, it occurs to me, it wouldn't be *that* much wackier than what they *have* used for storylines. *g*

Though I love the ice city! I especially loved this part of the dream:

Total fandom overhauling ecstatic excitement! That's so very cool. And just begs to be done in your dream-form as an AU. Whee! **squees in anticipation**

and you call yourself a slasher [g]
You're right -- fabulous dream! But couldn't it have been Vaughn -- or hell, Dixon -- who got all sympathetic to Sark, and therefore, suddenly the star of a million romantic Sark/___ stories? Just because Syd is 100 times cooler than any of the guys on the show...

Good to see you last night -- did you really go work out?

Re: and you call yourself a slasher [g]
Apparently my subconscious equates Sark/Syd with Spike/Buffy. *g*

I didn't work out--it turns out the gym closes at 8:00. :-P

You have great dreams. GREAT. This one, and the one with the city overtaken by pods with you hiding in the caves - all your dreams beg to be turned into miniseries.

I love Sark to bits, and can only pray that he'd force me agents to do all sorts of things with the power of his mind. ::breathes heavy just thinking about it::

Fabulous dream. For some reason "Alias" has featured in startling detail in a number of mine too, there's obviously something about it my subconscious loves.

Why aren't you employed as an Alias writer? Why not I ask! WHY WHY NOT!!! (now I am shrieking!) This is a such great story, darn it. I stopped watching this season cuz it's so bumpy and unpredictable and so very not season 1. Plus I feel kind of sick when Syd and Vaughn kiss - you can feel the "not love" right through the screen.
Things to do...I missed your first query cuz I don't have a stinkin' computer at home. But do you like to cook? I have found that it's quite fun - especially when you tweak recipes. And if you can see your tv from the kitchen? Even better - there's nothing more fun than chopping onions to a good kickboxing fight on Angel or Alias! I actually accidentally watched an alias THREE times cuz I was so busy chopping!
By the third time - I was feeling a bit deja-vuish. Some days it is a good thing to have a goofy mind!
So did you send JJ your application yet?
