11 TV Characters I Love More Than Anything - Really, I just wanted an excuse for another meme. And every once in a while I list my top 10 hotties, but I did that not too long ago, and then AfterElton had a thing about 'TV characters you wanna marry', so I thought about that, but I realized that really, most of my favourite TV characters I don't necessarily wanna marry, so 'love more than anything' in this case mostly refers to how much affection I feel for them, how much watching them be awesome makes me all warm and fuzzy, how sad it makes me when they're miserable (tho of course there's a huge overlap with hotties and favourite shows etc). It's crazy how much I love these characters. Pictures under the cut!

So I was listening to this interview this morning: Demon FM Meets Amanda Tapping, and towards the end of the interview she mentions that she's gonna be in the UK in February, and I thought 'oh cool, she's coming to Europe', and then I realized that 'OMG THAT'S AMANDA-CON AND I'M GONNA BE THERE!!!!'. Dude. I'm gonna meet Amanda in February. *squeeee!!!*

In vaguely related news, I've spent the day reading about trophic cascades. Now, in ecology a trophic cascade is when  change in one trophic level causes significant changes on other trophic levels more than one level away (adding cats to your yard will give you less weeds - more cats eat more birds, fewer birds eat fewer snails, more snails eat more weeds). However, whenever I see it written out I have a little happy moment where I think about some of my favourite Stargate episodes, the alternate reality eps, and the danger of entropic cascade failure - failure to exist in an alternate universe where another you also exists. (Of course, entropy is something different from trophic levels, but still.) And I keep wondering if I should explain to my prof why I always smile when she brings up the trophic cascades...

I had an awesome dream last night, where I was the newest member of the Hustle crew. They were planning a con that somehow involved the Norwegian prime minister (who was a woman and completely unrelated to the actual Norwegian prime minister) and large tapestries depicting historical battles. I was... not really contributing, and they kept sending me on silly assignments to prove I could be a successful grifter, but I spent most of my time trying to figure out any possible scenario that would lead to me getting to hook up with Stacie. I was doing pretty well, too... since I was new in town I got to stay at her place, on a fold-out bed in her bedroom no less, and she seemed happy to have me there, but then I woke up. Sadness.

OMG! So Sci-Fi TV & Talk has a new article/interview up with Amanda (via @atappingnews), and while she doesn't really say anything she hasn't already said elsewhere (I'm not even sure any of what she says is new?) it has PICTURES!! OMG!!!

A series of awesome hi-res pictures I haven't seen before of Amanda directing Veritas *WHILE WEARING GLASSES*!!! I cannot stress to you how important the glasses-wearing thing is. I had a moment where I *DIED OF GUH* and it hasn't really passed (which the all-caps might have clued you into by now)... *fans self* Glasses, people, *glasses*!!

Now, they're a bit protective of those pics, so I'm not gonna post them here, but here's a wee sample just to convince you how awesome this is!!:

HERE'S THE LINK TO THE REST OF THEM!: "Sanctuary’s Amanda Tapping – Bare Essentials"
Seriously, how hot is she in those glasses??? *guh*

Leave me a comment saying "Resistance is Futile."
I'll respond by asking you five questions so I can satisfy my curiosity
Update your journal with the answers to the questions
Include this explanation in the post and offer to ask other people questions.


[livejournal.com profile] sakuracorr gave me these:

1. Sam, Helen, and Amanda - who do you marry, who do you shag, and who do you drop off a cliff?
Answer N/A due to BRAIN!FAIL. OMG! I can't drop Amanda off a cliff! I can't drop Helen off a cliff! I can't drop Sam off a cliff either! Waaaah! *shortcircuits* (The shagging one would totally be Helen, though. *guh*) The *pain*! The Pain is excruciating!

2. The network execs have given you the opportunity to completely control one episode of one show, which show and what do you do with the episode?
Sanctuary. Naturally. Now, I suck at case-fic, so I'd get someone to write it for me. But there would be some sort of exciting case where Will and Helen are stranded somewhere (let's make it a tropical island because I love sunshine and water and everyone will have to wear less clothing and let's make it small so that they can't really avoid each other) with a couple played by Teryl Rothery (as a more ditzy, less Fraiser character and she's some sort of cool not-obvious abnormal and Helen "forgets" to tell Will about it) and Claudia Black (as less Vala and more dry sarcastic humor and not because I don't love Vala, I do, but because it's cool to see them play different, too) and Helen has at one point or another been involved with both of them, and perhaps both of them together (it's not made clear but definitely implied), and it's not necessarily over yet. There will be lots of action and danger and excitement and some good Helen/Will 'we're *friends* and I trust you but I'm still superior to you and not entirely comfortable with you trying to shrink me' moments and some awkward 'stuck on an island with your ex' moments. At the end they're rescued by chopper, and Will tries to talk to Helen and she pretends not to hear him, because she's a wee bit embarrassed about the ex thing, because Teryl and Claudia (who, as it turns out, had the means to save themselves, they just had to solve the Case first) have threatened promised to come visit the Sanctuary at some point in the future.

Why I didn't chose the alternate storyline that righted that wrong at the end of 2x02 )

3. The world explodes into war and you can only live in a country that starts with a vowel, where do you live?
Iceland

4. If there were a musical episode of your favourite show right now, what song would the MC sing?
Oy. Helen Magnus would sing All My Exes Live In England to the tune of George Strait's All My Exes Live In Texas.

5. What author would you really like more books from what now?
From what now? Laurie R. King, Martinelli series, please.

And I wanted ask if there are any SG-1 / Samantha Carter / Amanda Tapping fans on my f-list? Because I've never really done the Stargate thing, and I'm not quite ready to sit down and watch Carter's 230 TV/movie appearances, so can anyone point me in the direction of good interesting significant Sam Carter-centric episodes of Stargate?
