I've made a few banners....
I'm sorry if this bothers anyone and I suppose it's not entirely accurate... maybe something like "Unending Indifference" would be better. :/
I also modified the images a bit and made a plain base, so if anyone wants to snurch and use, make your own text, please feel free. Credit not needed but appreciated. The final two are sort of a take on the D/V banner... sort of.
Maybe there is something wrong with me but I find it hard to believe sometimes when people keep insisting they're still friends. Can you actually prove that? Can you take an episode from season 10 and say "See? Daniel still cares about Sam (and/or Teal'c)" ? I know people tell me that they've been friends over the course of 10 years, built up this foundation and it's hard to believe it's just gone. But who's to say that it isn't? How do you know something didn't happen between them to cause them to stop caring about one another? I just hate the way TPTB have made things seem this way.
I also read an interview MS gave on Gateworld.net and he mentions one of the two DVD movies.
MS: From what I know about it, I think that we're off searching for an ark. [Laughter] And Daniel has some more leftover baggage with two characters in the universe. One is Merlin and the other is Ganos Lal, otherwise known as Morgan Le Fay. We have some leftover stuff that we're going to be bringing to the table that Daniel's knowledge of is going to be intricate.
He gets to be by her side -- for Vala. She has to deal with her husband -- or ex-husband, however you want to look at that -- Tomin. And Adria as well. So there's still a little leftover stuff that Daniel gets to be intricately involved with. We get to search for this secret weapon that might solve all of our problems. Of course, with the Ancient experience, and with the knowledge of the Ori, Daniel becomes intricate to that particular story.
So it appears that this movie will be an awful lot like Dominion was, just subtract Baal, add Merlin and Morgan Le Fay.... and poor Tomin, who will no doubt be killed off in this movie (at least from the way MS calls him Vala's "ex-husband"). And again Daniel will only be with Vala and will ignore everyone else.
So I'm not wasting my money on this. I'm not even bootlegging it (not that I've ever done that before...). The Ori is a pretty boring storyline to me anyway. I know other people feel differently and that's fine but I'm not going to watch something if it bores me and bums me out.
I just hope the second movie will be worth it. I've seen a behind-the scenes pic of AT and MS sitting together relaxing in between filming, and they're both in desert camo so I'm assuming they'll be together in at least one scene in the entire movie. I'm crossing my fingers that they'll actually interact and Daniel will actually treat Sam like a friend instead of snide and sarcastic (which is what I'm expecting for the first film - if he does actually interact with her and Teal'c at all).
Anyway I'm sorry for being so negative... just all the hoopla over Unending and Daniel/Vala in general is depressing me a little. Nowadays it seems like you have to ship D/V in order to be a fan of Daniel... so I guess I can't be a fan of his anymore unless I support that ship. :(
*off to catch up to reading fanfic to cheer myself up... hopefully*
