Hi everyone! Sorry to be posting this a bit prematurely, but I will be getting up *way* too early tomorrow so I wanted to get the Wednesday entry up now in my less sleep-deprived state :)
I love movies, and sometimes I feel tempted to just plop Lee and Kara down into the middle of a great scene. It doesn't matter if there's no way it could fit into the BSG universe, sometimes it would just be fun. Or heartbreaking. For example:
1) Fun: Jumping the Bus in Speed
Yes, I admit it. I want to trap Lee and Kara and some civilians on a bus that's wired to explode if they drop below 55 miles per hour and then watch them jump a highway overpass. "It might be on an incline. Floor it!!" I am not ashamed. It would be awesome. Way better than "Sacrifice." This is the hostage situation I want for them :)
2) Heartbreaking: Trapped Together in The Abyss
I'm not sure how many of you will have seen this (it was the disaster-in-the-cruel-sea love story movie that James Cameron made *before* Titanic
), but the situation is this: an estranged husband and wife, both amazing and tough as nails, wind up trapped out of range of their deep-sea home base in a small ship quickly filling with freezing water. There is only one life suit. The ex-wife comes up with a truly harrowing, out-of-the-box plan that might give them both a chance to survive. The crisis and its aftermath are heartbreaking and heartwarming to watch; it's one of the most intense, traumatic, moving portrayals of love in the face of death that I've seen on film. I want to put Kara and Lee through this exact drowning scenario, from the moment it starts to the moment it ends. You wouldn't have to change a word of dialogue, it's perfectly them.
What movie scene would you like to drop Kara and Lee into? Would you like to watch them swordfight in The Princess Bride
? Kiss passionately in front of the blazing horizon in Gone With the Wind
? Fly together over Metropolis in Superman
? The sky's the limit!
