A Few Thoughts  
If John Sheppard were to play Maximus, General turned SLAVE, would Elizabeth Weir be his dead wife OR the sad-constricted-totally-creep'd-out-by-my-weird-incestuous-brother-and-therefore-must-play-smart-to-protect-my-child Lucilla? In the words of Linda Richmond of Cawfee Tawk: Discuss.

CSI. I was kinda sad that there's no Warrick now, but I'm used to disappointment from the abusive-boyfriend-franchise. And it was the first time that Sara and Grissom were in a scene that I didn't look away from the screen in unabashed disgust. It was kinda sad. However, methinkst I can live without watching the rest of it. My love is so beyond demon-dead.

Private Practice. I think Violet and Pete is my new ship. Violet and Coop is m'kay but just way too much angst. The kind of angst that I love. It's the whiny, needy, Meredith and McDreamy lets dance the never ending dance of pain and suffering and insecurity where it just gets boring and stale and GAWD! GET OVER IT ALREADY!angst. Pete and Violet would be awkward, funny, wait when did this get serious? Was I not paying attention to the development of this? ship. Serendipitous, if you will. Like oops, I think I love you kind of ship. One thing I do find so. funny. Tyne Daly played Amy's mommy on JUDGING AMY!!! And, well, Tim is Tyne's lil bro. Nehk-yehk. Hollywood is so frakking incestuous. Must. Find. Pete/Violet Tribe. *goes on hunt*

As much as I'd love to vote Lucilla, I can't see Tori in a role that has her cowering from her brother instead of standing up to him (I blame Lizzie for her awesomeness diplomatic leading ways). Although she does stand up to him in the end... I dunno. Maybe she could be Lucilla (definitely would love to see her in those outfits), but for that to work in my head, a lot of tweaks must be made *.*

Yes. I see both sides too. I can see her effing fighting for her child in both women yet the political setting in which Lucilla finds herself speaks more to the character of Weir. 'Tis a quandry, no?

Because i don't watch CSI or Private Practice. I would think that Elizabeth would play Lucilla. Mostly because she's actually got a role in the movie that isn't hanging by her neck in her own front yard. But also because Lucilla is a rather strong woman. Much like Elizabeth and I think that it's more interesting that She and John (aka. Maximus) have a past and still love each other, regardless of having other loves that died...you know? I like the concept and potential better. Plus she'd get the awesomely beautiful grecian clothes that Lucilla wears. I'm particularly fond of the grey one with the pink ribbons, remember that dress?
Sunny: SGA Sparky personal what?sunny_serenity on October 13th, 2008 09:58 pm (UTC)
LOL! Nice disclaimer.

Indeed. She's very much so a proactive type of character and the five minutes of screen time harshes on that fact. Secondly, ZOMG!PRETTY!LIZZIE!IN!PRETTY!ROBES!!! EEEEEEEEEEE!!! Thirdly, I think it really comes down to the question of true love, no? Is the love in this life (Lucilla) more powerful than the love in the Fields of Asphodel (ded wife) which, in the SGA verse could be the whole ascension thingy. So yeah, I'm kinda torn...

Earth Vs. Elysium. It's a tough tough call. What i think it boils down too...if you really wish to boil this pot dry, is where does 'Elizabeth' fit better. Does she make more sense on the physical plain or the ethereal?

And don't say Ethereal just because she'd make a damn pretty angel, be honest, hehe.

LOL! But, but, the SPARKLY things she could do as an ANGEL!!!

I like evaporation, so lets. Ded wife = no character depth. Lucilla = GIGANTERON DEPTH! Therefore: Lucilla > Ded wifey I give up, you win. *crowns u w/teh wreaths*

ZOMG! ICON?! YES! WIN! *GLOMP* Dude, teh pretty... *swoons* Oh those loverly capping skills. Can I look forward to picspam?!?!

I totally loved them from the fake pilot on GA when he walks into her office and they start talking and he asks her: "Is that why you won't sleep with me?" And she says something link, "I won't sleep with you cos you're still mad at your wife and use sex as revenge." ZOMG! She SO knows him better than anybody else. HEE!!!
