SGA 506: The Shrine

Okay, I need to watch it again, but I will leave you all with

John lent him his leather jacket, and then they snuck out to drink beer.

SO. MUCH. TOUCHING.

*makes a sound audible only to dogs and cats*

Because I suspect this is going to inspire a lot of anti-Keller rage, I must state that I loved everybody. EVERYBODY. Even Jennifer, even though she was being rational to the point of I-want-to-slap-her-around-a-little, but I admit that by then I was totally in Jeannie and John's headspace and just WANTED TO FIX HIM, because you knew that as soon as they got to Talus everything would be all right, while at the same time you were really believing that maybe they wouldn't fix it.

The episode felt really, really short, probably because actually very little time passed objectively in either timeline, or maybe just because I was slightly distracted by all the beautiful, heart-clenching angst and the TEAMINESS of this. I just. It.

Yeah. I need to watch it again.

ETA2: Okay, I'm going to stop refreshing my F-List now and go to bed. *sheepish*

I know, right?! ladycat777 and I rewound the bit where Rodney's hunched over in the shrine and John's got his hand on Rodney's back like four times, because HE MOVES HIS THUMB! *such a dork*

OMG I have to go to bed too, as I watched it with ladycat777 at like, fricking 11 and we paused so much and chatted and meta'd that it was like, 1:20 when we finally watched the end, LOL), and we talked until 3, and now it's 5:24! EEK!

I have to say though, I feel a lot less worried than I did on my ride home. Sure, not everyone has weighed in on the episode, and YES, I shouldn't base my opinions so heavily on what other people think, but I really wasn't looking forward to a bundle of negativity and there hasn't really been that, for the most part. Plus, those of us who did like the Rodney/Keller have been (as far as I've seen, and really, I'm probably the most 'combative' if I even come across that way at all) pretty gracious about liking it, from what I've seen. No 'YOU'RE WRONG WRONG WRONG' hissyfits, which makes me love everyone a ton right now.

ZOMG BED. zzzzzz

I'm not even a McShepper, but SERIOUSLY the MCSHEP in this episode is so BLATANTLY OBVIOUS. Or ya know, in my head they're BFFs. Except I have you and Aimee chanting MCSHEP in the background. -_-" But so cute when he started calling for John at the beginning of the ep. ♥

To be fair, I multi-ship for Atlantis. I'm a happy camper with McShep or Rodney and Keller (or Rodney and Sam, or Rodney and Weir, or Rodney and Beckett...)

Jewel=yes
Keller=NO

John and Rodney were fantastic, Jeannie and Ronan were fantastic, Woolsey was fantastic, and I wanted to slap Keller around a lot. A LOT.

oh, he kept calling for John, and John wouldn't say goodbye, then Rodney got mad at him for it, and there was a spit take, and pounding on doors, and arms around backs, and someone was looking after Rodney emotional well being in a mature fashion! Plus, with bonus sister. The only thing that would have made the non-Keller parts extra stellar would have been a really good John/Jeannie scene, but the Jeannie/Ronan was a good substitue.

ok, bed now. Tired and near death
