Blue Atlantis

Checking In

I know I haven't posted in months. I'm still here; don't worry. Paperwork and winter tried to drown me. I'm still swimming in the paperwork but I have a brief reprieve until the sharks drag me under-water again tomorrow.

So, I'm still here. Don't worry about me. I'm always here. Sometimes I just run on silent mode when I'm particularly stressed.
Psst if you wanna destress I posted some of te Jeremiah/BSG cross :)

Yes, I'm an attention whore :D
I read; I loved; and... I couldn't properly review on my smart-phone?
Okay...so my Icon? The very first Icon I Photo-shopped! I was younger, and much more naive. Ah, well, youth of the early thirties. ::sigh::

I'm trying to remember if I missed any stories about a Golden Ship in BSG? Is this your machination, or did I really miss something that Dee said to Gaeta at one time. Also, I rewatched the David pacifist cult episode, and didn't hear a reference to a Golden Ship there either, so I'm hoping you are still planning to unveil this at some point.

I notice that Gaeta doesn't seem to blame Gaeta for her part in the Circle. I don't know where Sam, Dee, and Lee reside, physically, in the framework of the story, but I want to go with the idea that Kara volunteered because she needed to get away from both the pressures of dealing with Sam, Lee with Dee, and the Admiral. Kara is too busy not thinking about them to worry about hating Gaeta, wondering if he could or could not have rescued her from the Leobens' dollhouse, or what be different if The Fleet never stayed on New Caprica. Subconsciously, Kara knows Gaeta couldn't have helped her, and that she wouldn't have let him even if he tried; consciously, she can't afford to think about it, and is probably the main reason she hasn't apologized. She is avoiding, and every time someone brings the Circle up to her, she gets angry and avoids some more.

Gaeta, on his part, recognizes that Kara is just angry, and the Circle gave her a focus for that anger. Kara never would have hurt him if the circle hadn't provided evidence and righteous cause - or at least Gaeta hopes so. he doesn't know all the inner workings of Kara Thrace's conscious versus subconscious struggle. It's a good thing Kara doesn't live in Portland or she would have spent the full 60 days in the Cedar Hills Woman's only Ward, working out her issues with glitter glue, attempting to figure out how to make weapons out of on pointy markers whilst watching Shipping Wars during the allotted television time.

I really really love the story, BTW. Really love the story. I read your other stories as well, but love Jeremiah - I think I planned a crossover with just about every fandom I've ever cycled through, save for maybe Labyrinth (that would just be strange), and including Harry Potter (yeah, really - just check my tags for 'Jeremiah' to find the crossover list....).

I can't think of any other actors that fulfilled roles both on J and BSG, but if I find one soon I will let you know. (-OMG, I LIED, I did plan a crossover, somewhat convoluted, with Labyrinth-sorry, stray thought invaded my brain-)

Please keep writing. I'm depressed, and I still need an SAD light in the sunshine. ::grin::

((hugs))

David refers to a ship sent by god that will take them all away. I may need to rewatch but I thought he refered to it as a great golden ship. On BSG in the Kobol episodes, the story is very similar, that Athena threw herself from the cliff so the people could escape the war of the gods in a great golden ship. What I described between Dee and Felix never happened on BSG but Athena leaping from the cliff and sacrificing herself so the people could escape in the ship.

No, Gaeta isn't blaming Kara or Galen for the WHY of what they did. He is pissed that he's been the ship outcast because none of them are willing to take the pain and fully clear him, but he's reasonably understanding of the psychological mess that is Kara Thrace.

You know Katee Sackhoff is a Portland native right? :D

I plan to work on it, don't worry, I have some ideas already perculating!

I can't proof-read, apparently. and now my comments are no longer editable. Huh... I responded, but I think I replied to myself rather than you.

I did know Katee was from Portland, but didn't realize the irony of my statement as I wrote thoughts about crazy glue and Starbuck! ::hee::
Noooooo! I can't edit my comment? My typos imortalized forever? Life so sucks! ::bah!::

Above: The second Gaeta is supposed to be Kara.

woman's is supposed to be womens.

on - only - and so on....

Plus, I'm sure there are other numerous errors. So much for the English degree. THIS is what happens when you rely on spell-check - a lazy proofreader!

And yeah, about Katee Sackhoff, I did know about Portland. Notice how she stopped living in Portland sometime during the life of BSG and moved away? ::grin::
