Just a quickie...  
...quickie little entry.

I guess I have too much time on my hands and should actually spend my lunch hour *eating lunch*... But I really have to vent, if just for a moment. I was checking the SciFi Channel's BBoard, going over to the Stargate SG-1 folder, and, like the much-too-curious person that I am, clicked on a thread in there called "Something different about Daniel..." The first post said they noticed something different about Daniel in Memento Mori. Since this contains a few spoilers, read more in the cut:

Anyway, someone joked that since Daniel kept insisting that dinner with Vala wasn't a "date", they think he's going to come out of the closet soon. LOL. Just a joke.

Another person says, "Sounds more like wishful thinking on your part. We all know Daniel is still not completely over sha're yet but I do see the romantic love interest as a possible plot in the future."

And yet another one responds, "Yeah did you see that cute worried look on his face when he was in his office? I dont think he gets the same look when carter or teal'c are ever missing. :D It didn't look like he fell asleep the whole (what was it three weeks) Vala was missing."

Which REALLY ticks me off!! First of all, I'm willing to bet this person is a new fan. Daniel never looked worried when either Sam (must not like Sam much either if she refers to her as "Carter") or Teal'c were missing?? What is this person on?! Did she ever watch 48 Hours when Teal'c was trapped in the wormhole? I'm pretty sure Daniel looked worried there. And did she ever watch Death Knell? Remember when the Tok'ra and Jaffa were arguing while Sam was missing and Daniel almost explodes at them that his friend is missing while they're wasting time here?!

The thing that really bugs me about this is that I can't take this person to task because for some reason I can't register at SciFi.com. I did like 6 times already (at first was trying to register for the Get in the Gate sweepstakes) and I never get that all-important comfirmation email from them. I guess my stupid ISP thinks they are spammers and filters their emails out...or else they think my ISP looks like a spammer and they cannot send to me. I've emailed them countless times about it and never received a reply. So not only do they suck for cancelling the show especially right after the 200th episode, but their website sucks too. I guess I can't really expect anything more from them.

So am I right? Daniel has looked worried whenever Teal'c or Sam were missing, hasn't he? Okay maybe the examples I gave were old episodes which don't reflect the "New Improved Daniel" who only cares about Vala, but ... wait a minute, Daniel looked worried when Sam was going to fall asleep in Morpheus, didn't he? And that was only about 5 episodes earlier. So yeah technically Sam wasn't missing, but she could have died.

Okay, I know I said this would be a quickie, but I just can't believe someone said this, and it really annoys me that I can't take them to task over this because SciFi.com has their heads up their...opposite ends.

Incidentally, here is the link to the thread in case anyone wants to see or might know a way of letting this person know that they're wrong...or something...

*quietly seethes* Guess I will look for some feel-good fanfic or something now...

I can't enter the Get in the Gate Sweepstakes either. Despite regestering and entering in previous years. I can't get my password mailed to me (I know I haven't forgotten it because it lets me EDIT) nor have I ever gotten responses from them when I inquire why. I even tried registering with another screen name, but encountered the same problem.

Daniel has ALWAYS been concerned about his fellow FRIENDS. Yes. Teammates and friends. I think he would try to make Vala his friend - but that's it. Nothing further. Daniels too smart to have Vala as a lover. EWWW!!

I miss the old Daniel. And Sam. And Teal'c.

Yeah I guess something's up with their site or something. I've been trying for the past 3 weeks at least to register but no go. It's weird that some people can get on (or maybe they registered earlier). I guess I'll give up...

I totally agree - he's never let his friends down and I was surprised this person said that. I don't think he would want Vala to be more than a friend either. MS himself said in an interview that Daniel will be refusing all these advances from women - Vala, her daughter, and some woman in a museum appearently in an upcoming ep.

I do, too. The ones we see now are more like pod people sadly... maybe it's just that they aren't given enough to do (well except Daniel when he's paired with Vala :p)... or maybe TPTB just don't want to write them all as friends anymore.

Needless to say I am getting a lot of use out of my old DVDs.

Just thought of this: The Get in the Gate sweepstakes - if Stargate's cancelled, how can a person appear in an SG-1 episode? They'll have to make it just Atlantis. Right? Now that I wouldn't mind. A nice scene with Shep!

Ooh, good question...

Actually...I think it could be for the season finale (or in this case, the series finale). I remember hearing that last year's winner was in Camelot, and they did a spot before talking about it so I knew to look for her in the ep.

Either way I wouldn't mind a scene with Shep either! Yum.... :D

Yeah or the time in the episode "Solitudes",didn't Daniel fight and fihgt with general hammond with no sleep and no rest?
Because he was worried about Jack and of course Sam?
I could've sworn Daniel cared most of the way in stargate ,and I doubt very much he ever intended not to.
I hate it when people criticise with faulse minds,and fake facts.
A while back on a forum,we had a lot of trouble being stirred up,mainly because it was ship fights and it literally destroyed most of the sites population.
Well people like that can destroy a characters identity simply by saying such lies and destroying other peoples love for that character.
I owuld say that hole comment is "character assination"...ah well people suck...mind the spelling lol.
jessm78jessm78 on September 14th, 2006 02:43 pm (UTC)
Yup that's right... I remember the look on his face when Hammond said he was going to declare Sam and Jack as MIA.

Yeah I know what you mean. Maybe this person is a new fan and never watched all the other eps... or their ship is clouding their mind or something. It does sound like character assassination...

Don't worry about the spelling lol ;)

Well checked the thread and now they have decended into D/? hevean... or my hell... which ever it is, the banners are funny.

No, Daniel is still the cute concerned one who would be willing to not sleep for hours (or days) just so that something will be done.

Agreed Daniel was concerned for Teal'c, and Sam in Solitudes, Jack in 100 Days, or Brief Candle... I don't think this "evidence" that the poster put up is very strong. Must be a D/V shipper. *covers mouth*

Find some good fic over at FF.net, Betty has a new one.. maybe you already read it... i'm so behind. Be glad you can't register - I didn't bother this year, what's the point? There isn't another year for us to try again... hmm did I just promote it then? - I think they have moved past the subject...
jessm78jessm78 on September 14th, 2006 02:49 pm (UTC)
LOL...yeah I'll give them that...funny banners...

Oh yeah, there are so many eps we could come up with for proof. I remember in Brief Candle when Hammond wanted them to destroy the nanite samples and all that - and Daniel suddenly shouted "Sir!! We cannot just leave him there"...and then the look on his face when Hammond says there's nothing else he can do for Jack (or something like that)...it was such a look of defeat. Oh yeah, forgot... he also seemed very concerned about Sam in Singularity when she went back down to be with Cassie - notice how relieved he looked when they finally heard from Sam again to say she's okay. Oh and let's not forget about how worried he was about Sha're the whole 2.5 seasons!

Guess we could go on and on with it...but there's really no point. I guess it is for the best that I can't register. I might get in trouble over there. *shifty eyes* Yeah, I'll go through ff.net... could always read more Betty fic. I read the first chapter of a new one she did...not sure if there's anymore, but I have to catch up on some of her other ones also.
