I've noticed that in some threads on Gateworld, Joe Mallozzi is referred to as the "Evil Genius." It seriously boggles my mind, because I have no clue what that's about. And I am curious. Anyone here who might know what I'm talking about - can you fill me in?
I don't want to turn this into a JM bash or anything, but... *looks around warily* I really don't view the guy as a genius, despite the fact that I kind of like SGA this season (with the huge exceptions of Elizabeth and Carson not being there).
So this "evil genius" thing. Does it have anything to do with his blog? Does it have to do with his shipping preferences for SG-1? Or his being a PTB of SGA?
And while we're at it, someone told me he said something related to the SG-1 movies. Something about Sam and Cam having a brother/sister thing, as well as Sam and Daniel. While I haven't seen this quote personally it does sound like something he'd say since he ships D/V and S/J. But I'd still like to know where he said this. Was it at his blog? ETA: I ventured over to his blog and I saw the Sam/Cam comment, but I haven't seen the S/D one. Anyone have a link to that?
If it was I feel so compelled to comment on it and either tell him he needs to review the first few seasons of the show (for S/D) and LITS (for Sam/Cam...not that I ship them but I don't think the brother/sister thing really applies to them either), with a stronger pair of glasses; Or ask him to explain why these characters are siblings to him. Is it because they get along quite well so that makes it boring and too "sibling like"? There are no sparks of tension flying? Not that he'd answer me, of course. Three times I posted on his blog asking about Sam/Daniel interaction for Unending and for the movies and all three times he ignored me.
As if I haven't ranted enough about the brother/sister thing... *sigh*
And now for something totally unrelated... okay maybe not totally:
I have to wonder how the Daniel/Sha're, Daniel/Janet, Daniel/Weir, Jack/Sara and Sam/Martouf shippers feel. If you are no longer given anything you can squee over, do you feel that you can keep shipping your pair? Do others who are getting shippy stuff for their pairings give you a hard time? Because I think Sam/Daniel is starting to go in your direction as well, as the "ships that should be technically extinct because they don't get anymore onscreen nods." How do you handle it? Do you just keep going back to the older seasons, enjoying them and writing fanfic? Do you just ignore the D/V and other shippers who are having a field day?
Just some random ponderings... one of my friends at the SDR group on Yahoo was talking about the Joe Mallozzi thing and Ark of Truth - and said that it's not a big deal if S/D aren't given any scenes anymore. It just prompted some questions from me.
