Appreciation for Amanda Project  
Okay, I've done it (or maybe I should say "we've done it" since it's becoming a team effort... Go Team! :D).  We are going forward with this project.  Here is the lowdown:

I really liked Amanda's latest interview - she comes across as very genuine in speaking candidly about the show, good things as well as regrets. Even though I'm not happy about what was mentioned about Sam/Daniel interaction this season, I'm really glad that she is like some of us in wishing there was more ... that she sees Sam and Daniel's friendship as special.

I wish there was some way of expressing our appreciation, how glad we are that she feels the same way about something a lot of us have noticed, and how we appreciate what she's done in wanting to get more (what she brought up during Shore Leave last summer about talking to the producers and asking them to keep in the little looks, etc. between Sam and Daniel and Teal'c).

I know the show is over, but they're still doing the movies, and I think if we express our appreciation and encourage her to do what she can in support of the friendship, not just between her and Daniel but between the three of them, it might be a nice idea. I know that, in the end, TPTB do whatever the heck they want, but, in the least, this would show her that she is appreciated for her work on the show.

So, here is the deal. We'd like to get together a package to send to Amanda. It can be made up of letters, poems, fanfics (either S/D or team ones that showcase the Sam character), or artwork expressing appreciation for her, the character of Sam Carter and her relationship (aka friendship, interaction, whatever) with Daniel or relationship with Daniel and Teal'c. Right now, we're thinking of a deadline of February 14th. I hope that would be enough time for whomever is interested. If you've written
something or made artwork in the past, you can submit that - it doesn't have to be new, necessarily.

chris4short has volunteered to be the "post lady" for this project, so we will probably be sending all our goodies to her, and she'll gather them into a box to send to BC ("Virtual Hug in a Box" I think we're calling this... *grin*).

So if anyone's interested in participating, let either of us know.  :)  I've also started a thread for this on Gateworld: Appreciation for Amanda Project

(if the link doesn't work it means the mods may have moved it to another spot... just do a search under that title and it should come up)

Cool idea :D

I have an oldish drawing of Amanda (from about 2 or 3 years ago) that I scanned in a while back. It's here: http://pics.livejournal.com/pr1nce55k1tcat/pic/00046747

feel free to print it off or whatever, the gallery is on public view.

Thanks :)

I keep getting a "403 Forbidden" page when I click on it... guess LiveJournal is being buggy at the moment... I'll try again later.

Ah crap. It's given me a 403 too.

try this: http://pics.livejournal.com/manage/pic?id=118
and if that doesn't work then go here: http://pics.livejournal.com/pr1nce55k1tcat/ and click 'artwork'

hopefully one of them will work :)

The first link took me to my manage galleries page... I tried the second one but the artwork one says it has 0 pictures in it ('1 gallery, 0 pictures' I think).

Gah, sorry I am being such a pain about this :p

Try this. Hopefully imageshack is nicer than scrapbook *fingers crossed*

I'm interested in sending something to Amanda.. Just let me know if the deadline changes... and who i need to send it to..

I also agree with your comments about the interview. She said some really nice things about the show... It was nice to hear those things..

Thanks, I'm glad you want to contribute. :) Well right now chris4short is our unofficial "post lady" so you can send anything to her.

Yeah, that was a really nice interview. I felt bad about what she said about being a fifth wheel and all that. Hopefully some of this will cheer her up. :)

Oops, probably should mention... I posted this at SDR too, so you can reply to me there offlist and I can forward the stuff on to Chris.

(just realized that my contact info isn't on here, lol)
