( more pics this way! )
I'm going to post some of my fave pilots hair looks, each in a separate comment to this entry, and I'd like everyone to join in with posting their faves too, along with the reasons why you feel that hair is so awesome :)
Nothing is too trivial, appreciation/nitpicking is very much encouraged, and as always, feel free to bring up pic/gif evidence (this is a great source), since this post could always do with more of the pretty :) (and of course, if anyone feels like writing a fic involving hair, please go right ahead)
PS: the Friending Meme is still open, do go ahead and answer it/meet your fellow shippers if you haven't already, we've had a few newcomers to the post today and they are all awesome.
I feel like I need to shake up my Kara and Lee icons but I need some inspiration.
Inspiration can be finished icons, favorite scenes, scenes that you don't see used for icons very often, or just images that make you think of Kara and Lee.
To that last end I offer this... (I made it into an icon but you can't really read any of it. ;)
( But what does sandwich meat have to do with anything? )
Go forth nuggets and find me pretties!
Fat Lee salutes you!
Just as pop culture is shaped by what comes before it, it also shapes what comes after.
How have Pilots impacted the world?
Exhibit A: buckbeakbabie's picscan, Why HIMYM's "Tick, Tick, Tick" is the same episode as BSG's "Unfinished Business".
Let's all celebrate her awesomeness with our favourite things - pics, gifs, vids, fics, squee and general Katee/Kara love are all welcome! (pilotbirthdays only come once a year for each of them, after all)
( IT'S A KATEE PARTY, EVERYONE!!! )
In honour of this, I'm declaring it Jamie Bamber Appreciation Day! To participate, bring your pics, gifs and squee (not necessarily in that order, and remember we can appreciate EVERYTHING, from his pretty eyes down to his terrible dress sense) :)
( PICSPAM/GIFS UP AHEAD, PEOPLE )
Today we're having a pilots picspam. I'm leaving some of my favourite caps below - please share yours (and your favourite gifs!) in the comments, and let us glory in the wonder of the lust, angst, excitement, desire, support and general amazingness of our pilots :)
( Mmm, pilots - cut because this is extremely image heavy )
Why Do You Miss Them?
What did they do for you that makes you ache for them? Why do you keep writing fic or making icons or vids or mixes for them? How is it that you still squeeeee over the bits of dialogue and screencaps of scenes you might have watched a thousand times? Why do you check your flist and hope "OMG NEW FIC?????" Why do you still follow Katee or Jamie and keep the squee running hot?
What keeps you coming back for more?
( Scenes that make me miss them. )
Bring on the adrenaline today!!
While pondering Starbuck and Apollo, several common activities and objects came to mind. The “frak or fight” dynamic, flying, guns, and ambrosia all suggest that our pilots are often somewhere in the cycle of adrenaline rush/subsequent mood drop/repeat. They made me think of the “Happiness is a Warm Gun” lyric along with the following quotation from John Lennon. He stated he saw the phrase on the cover of a gun magazine and thought: “It was a fantastic, insane thing to say. A warm gun means you just shot something. Like heroin into your arm.”
I felt like either Starbuck or Apollo could have said something very similar out of frustration with the insanity of fighting an ongoing war at the end of the worlds. The rush of battle and the subsequent drop in mood as the adrenaline wears off would understandably lead to the search for other methods of obtaining that same adrenaline rush. While Kara and Lee may not choose heroin (although Kendra does shoot up and they obviously have morphine available for medical use), they certainly do choose frakking, ambrosia, flying, and fighting with each other.
Today I encourage picspam, comments (whether just a few words or longer thinky thoughts), and anything else that comes to mind in relation to pilots and adrenaline. You are welcome to post/discuss a scene of 10 million angst puppies (Sacrifice perhaps), completely squee-inducing scenes (buddy cops FTW), and anything in between. The only requirement is that there is some connection to the common props (guns, ambrosia, etc) and/or activities (flying, fighting, frakking) that produce the adrenaline rush that would lead to a comment like “Happiness is a Warm Gun."

The pilots acknowledged their "fight or frak" dynamic and it was good...
Two choices for DPP posts today:
1) Comment!fic of fights, fraks, or both occurring in 33 minute intervals during the initial cylon attacks
2) Picspam crack stories like the one above that summarize the best of other pilots!scenes or episodes
p.s.--Congrats to Pali and Rachel for winning the "Pilots in One Word" S1 game today!! Thanks also to Heather and Artemis for playing!
p.p.s.--I know I promised you guys a game for S2. It's coming tomorrow, I'm just making some sparkly changes since we didn't have a lot of participation in today's game.
