I've been here a while, but it's probably time to write a few things.
I've been a fan of SG-1 since season 7, when the show finally ensnared me and I rapidly watched the previous 6 seasons in marathon sessions over a period of a couple of months. Being a late comer to the show, I may see things differently then some. I know from speaking to others that this fandom is pretty fractured, with lines drawn between fans of certain characters and those of others.
As I watched the story unfold in it's early years and then it's subsequent seasons in real time, I observed the show's epic arc, and it appeared to be a long tale of the life and deaths of a modern romanitic hero who along with his friends, struggles to make things right in a universe where the odds are stacked against survival. An epic saga where morals often matter more then victory, and the way you choose to live your life matters most of all.
We cannot change the essence of what we are, but we can change what we do. This is a philosophical truism. On Stargate, the choices made when facing challenge and change have enormous ramifications.
To write about the show in a thoughtful manner would require a thesis, and while I have enough material for the venture, real life would prevent my indulgence.
At any rate, here on FF I run a C2 --> Daniel Jackson, Love, Angst and Whumping. I really enjoy how fans stretch the limits of imagination and explore areas the show could never examine in both gen, het and slash. Of the 3, slash has probably become the most cliched which while regrettable, is just the way things are. Het has been rejuvenated by new writers adding their voices to those who have written for years. Gen can be wonderful when it avoids the fanonic cliches and even when it doesn't, it can be a fun read.
I am looking for help in maintaining the community. Please drop me an email if you're interested.
