why my AUs never get written...  
Last night I was thinking of a mirror universe storyline where John, Elizabeth, Lorne, and Zelenka are forced by parallel Evil!Them through the dimensional mirror into a randomly chosen parallel universe, and have to collaborate with their counterparts to get home. And my AU!Rodney...yes, well:
  • His parents emigrated to the U.S. when he was three
  • His parents died when he was five
  • His foster parents were ignorant losers
  • His foster father molested him
  • He built a nonworking nuclear bomb when he was eleven
  • The FBI took him from his foster family and placed him with a colonel who'd career-hopped from Special Forces to Special Projects
  • He bonded so intensely with his new dad that his heart became set on following in his footsteps and joining the Special Forces
  • Having gotten a master's degree or two by the time he was eighteen, he enlisted and...etc etc.
  • Emotionally damaged and rather childlike, he doesn't flinch from snapping necks and knifing throats
  • But the powers that be persuade him into Special Projects and then the Stargate Program...
  • ...on his condition that they keep him fed with occasional black-ops work on the side
  • And he and John find each other and live happily ever after
  • And then there might have been a montage of maniacal stick-fighting set to Tool's "Forty-six and 2" with close-ups on AU!Rodney's ripped muscles and scars

But you still respect me, don't you?

OH GOD YOU DON'T RESPECT ME! *flees the Internet forever*

I rarely comment on your LJ, but may I just say that you made me very happy with this image. Yes, yes, I just did.

Mmm... ::happy place::

Now back to evil taxwork.

Hell, I respect you MORE. Especially for this: close-ups on AU!Rodney's ripped muscles and scars.

ReginaGiraffereginagiraffe on October 14th, 2005 09:59 pm (UTC)
I totally respect you.

And I'd respect you even more if you wrote it! *g*

You really ought to write that AU. It'd be awesome.
cathexys: smug (by kormantic)cathexys on October 14th, 2005 10:22 pm (UTC)
see, the thing with AUs is that in a good writer's hand the craziest premises will just rock!! same with xovers! i was reccing xovers to someone yesterday and she was utterly skeptical about the wacky verses and emailed back today and loved it.

so, knowing you and your writing, i'd totally print this out, sight unseen, and know i'd probably reread it many times and adore the heck out of it :-)
Welcome to My Houserositamia on October 14th, 2005 11:02 pm (UTC)
I know this is going to sound wierd b/c you don't know me, but I can't help it. I *love* crossovers. Sooo much. Would you be willing to point some out to me? I would really appreciate it. You can email me at rositamia@yahoo.com, if you'd like. Thanks.
cathexys: john 2 (by liviapenn)cathexys on October 14th, 2005 11:49 pm (UTC)
LOL...if you love xovers you probably know all the ones i recced...my friend just left her monofannish universe and it's a brave new world out there :-) [the one that so surprised her were kelli matthews' shadows fade and martha's tatters, b/c i guess most three-way xovers tend to be bad...but i'll gladly email you, b/c i'm actually fixing to write on xovers (or at least thinking about it), so i can use any and all crossover enthusiasts to figure out wehat makes a successful crossover]

sorry eliade, taking it to email now...

Hey, feel free to post recs here for everyone to see! :)
cathexys: grincathexys on October 15th, 2005 12:07 am (UTC)
hey, i could just start with you :D [yes, i recently went through a couple of weeks of falling back into XF and reread all of yours *g*]
Anna S.: polarbeareliade on October 15th, 2005 12:56 am (UTC)
Heh...that's the only story I ever got a flame on. *g* Which I probably deserved to some degree, because I knew almost nothing of canon Methos at the time. (And still don't.)
cathexyscathexys on October 15th, 2005 12:59 am (UTC)
*g* neither do i, so i can read all highlander xovers with wild abandon (since my true love's for mulder anyway :-)

and does is it freak you at times when you look at the dates on these???
jackycomelatelyjackycomelately on October 14th, 2005 10:26 pm (UTC)
Well, no. Worship yes, adore certainly, lick your toes, indeed, respect...you've lost that forevvvar! Just like John...

If you could stop writhing around in shame long enough to listen, I'd tell you that this kind of post always makes my day. :)

a montage of maniacal stick-fighting set to Tool's "Forty-six and 2"

Wow! I wanna see that. I love adore track.
And hey, weapons!

Respect is due.
Mishaunmisha on October 14th, 2005 11:13 pm (UTC)
What? No penguins? Of course I won't respect you. In the morning. A gazillion years from now. In another dimension.

Rodney! Eeee!
Innocent Bystanderfiresprite1105 on October 14th, 2005 11:24 pm (UTC)
Oh, this is a compelling vision of Rodney, not to mention the perfect way to start the weekend. :)

R-E-S-P-E-C-T? Hell, hon - that's too small a word for what we feel for you!
lovessong: blindfoldlovessong on October 15th, 2005 12:22 am (UTC)
I think I will only respect you if you do write the AU. Or any AU. OK, actually, anything you want to write. Anything at all.

*easy like that*

So, clearly the question is not do I respect you, but do you respect me and my fic-slut ways?

not sure about respect, but there may be some worship involved...
