I wanna see your pretty ICONS!!!

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. ;)

On Monday we posted lyrics that made us of think of pilots, today we get creative!

Pick a lyric from the post and make something!

It could be a story, some icons, a vid, whatever.

NOTE: It looks like LJ is screening comments with images, so if you get a spam notice don't worry - I'll unlock it!

It's Monday, which means the start of my first time ever doing DPP!

I thought I'd ease in with something light.


Yes we have songs that remind us of Pilots, but why? What are words that grab our gut and tug at out heart?

Things like:

Tell me, if we sleep together
Would it make it any better?
If we sleep together
Would you be my friend forever?
"La Familia", Mirah

We love in secret names
We hide within our veins
The things that keep us bound to one another
"The Secret's In The Telling", Dashboard Confessional

You are all I'll ever want, but this I am denied
Sometimes in my darkest thoughts, I wish I'd never learned
What it is to be in love and have that love returned
"Written in the Stars", Elton John

So unsure of who I'm supposed to be
The one who takes the noble path
Or the one who wants what he can never have
"Hardly A Hero", Levi Kreis

So go nuts and post lyrics (just try not to quote whole songs)!

It's Wednesday, it's time for a game! So, for today, I'm bringing back a game that some of you might have played a couple years back with [livejournal.com profile] taragel-- Name That Tune (Don't Forget The Lyrics, in this case).

So here's the deal: I put my music player on shuffle and I'm going to post a whole bunch of lyrics that remind me of pilots from the songs that came up below. Your job is to guess the name and artist of the song, which will be 1 point for you. Bonus point if you post the next line to the song. At the end, I'll tally up the scores, and I think there will be a prize to be won here...

A couple more instructions and the lyrics below the cut )

Howdy :)

So yesterday was fun, we talked about our favourite UFT's and by the way, if any of you missed the latter portion of the discussion which was directed mainly by [livejournal.com profile] nazkey , [livejournal.com profile] amaliak , and [livejournal.com profile] pali167  you should go check it out, it is FASS-TASTIC!

Today we're gonna talk a little bit about music, even though I'm certain that it's has been done before. It strikes me that pilots fandom is relatively short on song-fics, where most fandoms feed on them. And ok, I'm not the world's biggest fan of song-fics, my experience of them is that they are often clumsy and made lazy by virtue of being able to rely on lyrics to say what you want to without having to think of how you word it for yourself. I am however, interested in fic inspired by music, that doesn't necessarily use the song as part of the story.

Now, I know a lot of you guys are really into poetry and have written many wonderful fics inspired by/based around poetry. But what about songs?

Do you guys have favourite pilots songs? Have you written fics that were inspired by particular pieces of music/songs? Have you written actual song-fics? Does anyone have songs that they wish someone would write pilots fic based around? It's a musical free for all!

And to get you started, here are a few songs that make me think of pilots.


Everyone feel free to jump in with your songs, fic-recs, prompts or just general feelings. Or, if you feel like it, gifs of hot men being hot, because that's allowed too :)

Taking my inspiration from [livejournal.com profile] wand3rlust's post in [livejournal.com profile] beyond_insane a bit ago, let's talk about song fic! By which I mean, is there one song that you're dying to have inspire a K/L fic? Post it here and see what happens!

(Hey mods, can we get a tag for "music" or "fanmixes" or "song fic" or something along those lines? ^_^)

We had some great song contributions at yesterday's Season 1 & 2 post, but we definitely need more. Please go back and contribute. *bats eyelashes* And don't worry if your favorite pilot songs don't exactly match one of the scenes - we'll figure out where to put it anyway. :)

What songs do you want on the Mixtape?  )

ETA: We've reached #91 in our 99 Bottles of Ambrosia post. I'm sure you creative-types will get us good and sloshed by the end of today. Have at it!

Music has been such an integral part of our fandom and our love of pilots. We have such a variety of music associated with BSG and pilots. We’ve talked about songs from Kara’s POV about Lee, Lee’s POV about Kara, Kara thinking about Lee, Lee thinking about Kara, songs that remind us of pilots’ epic love, and songs that remind us of Starbuck and Apollo. 

So now I ask you, are there any songs that remind that make you say that this is how Sam sees K/L or this is how Dee see K/L? Are there songs out there that could be from another character’s POV about Kara/Lee? 

Also, from all of these different scenarios, we’ve had the pleasure of listening to some great fanmix or soundtracks about pilots. I ask you, is there a soundtrack for us, shippers???? Have you heard a song that reminds you of your feelings during an episode or your feeling overall towards pilots or BSG itself? Anything that you’ve heard that reminds you of you or shipper nation and its undying love of pilots?

For me:

Not Meant to be by Theory of a Deadman always reminds me of Sam and his POV about his relationship with Kara and his views on the K/L relationship.Lyrics and video

The songs that always remind me of us shippers are:

Jab Soona Soona Lage from the movie Om Shanti Om - Lyrics and video

Unbreak My Heart by Toni Braxton - Lyrics and video

Hello fellow shippers! My name is Cosette and I will be your DPP host for this week. My fabulous predecessors have done a wonderful job over these past weeks, and I hope to keep the fun going! :D

We have already discussed our favorite moments, scenes, fics, vids… And I don’t know about all of you, but personally, when it comes to K/L related stuff, I am inherently conflicted when it comes to choose a favourite anything. Of course I have my preferences –I could probably pick my 5 favorite scenes and my 10 most beloved fics or come up with a list of, say, 15 songs that scream pilots to me; but when I have to cut down the list to one, the task becomes almost impossible. What I intend for today’s post, though, is to make you choose... Hence my question is, if you had to make a choice and pick one, ONLY ONE, which would be...

*Your favorite K/L scene. And why?

*Your favorite Kara/Starbuck moment. And why?

*Your favorite Lee/Apollo moment. And why?

*Your favorite pic of them? (evidence would be muchly appreciated!)

*Your favorite K/L fic?

I know this is a really tough call, there are so many wonderful stories out there, but you probably have a story that holds a special place in your heart for a bunch of different reasons… Maybe it was the first good one you read, maybe it’s the story that made you cry harder or touched you in a way you didn’t expected, or explored a certain aspect of Lee and Kara’s relationship in a way you found utterly satisfying --or who knows, maybe it is the smuttiest smut you’ve ever read :)).

*Your favorite K/L song?

*Your favorite K/L vid?

*Needless to say, feel free to answer to those questions you feel like. Also, I’d love to hear yours “why’s” about pretty much all your choices. After all, the reasoning behind an election is as important as the choice in itself (and I am that nosy and chatty, hehe).

Pilots love music.  Or maybe music loves Pilots?  I wouldn't blame it for a second if that were the case.  Anyways, [livejournal.com profile] taragel  discussed General Pilot Songs with us a while ago.

It got me thinking...  There are some songs that make me think of Pilots, but don't really fit for the entirety of their story.  I call them “Snapshot Songs.”  They fit for a particular story arc, or maybe even just for one moment.

Examples: )

So, let's make a game of this.  You provide some lyrics and/or a song title and artist, we try to figure out the arc or moment that it applies to.  Here are a couple to get us started:

Let's Get It Started )

...or "Five times Lee Adama was thinking of Kara Thrace (in the form of a song)"

Cookies if you get the lyrics. ;)

please leave your taste on my tongue )

Help me with Kara's Five Times!

Hey there, kids! My name is Heather, and I'll be your DPP host for this week. :D

I was musing the other day about how hard it is for me to put the whole of my love of pilots into words. I mean, I could go on for hours about the individual reasons I adore them, I'm sure, but no one thing seems to encompass all that I feel when I think about how beautiful their relationship is. But sometimes I find in the words of others bits and pieces of the whole of how I, personally, feel, if that makes any sense. In a line of dialogue or the description of a handshake and hug in a fic, in some new insight to an oft-discussed topic in a piece of meta, in the editing of a brilliant vid... In considering all of this, I have come to realize that I can't put my love of Kara/Lee into words because it's always changing, always expanding, and that this will always be true as long as I continue to think about them and to absorb others' thoughts on them.

With that in mind, today I propose that we share with each other some of the fic, music, poems, vids, art, etc. that has for some reason or another greatly touched on our love for Kara/Lee. You can elaborate on why you've chosen to share it, or not. You can quote a whole song, or just a few lines. Anything goes!

To start us off, I thought I'd post a poem by Pablo Neruda that some thoughtful shipper first introduced me to in a post on [livejournal.com profile] beyond_insane sometime around the finale. It's the second "Morning" sonnet (translated into English) in Neruda's 100 Love Sonnets. Though I'm not usually a big fan of poetry, this poem is definitely one of those works that touches on some aspect of my pilots love.

A love sonnet )

Wow, sorry that got so wordy! I promise to keep things short for the rest of the week. All right, y'all, now hit me up with your recs!

P.S.--Don't forget that there are still lots of open weeks for anyone interested in hosting the Daily Pilots Posts. We want YOU.

Also, have we decided when the next rewatch is going to take place yet? What say you, Bee?

      Snerched from [info]kellychameleon3 and adapted:
Step 1: Put your music player on shuffle.
Step 2: Post the first line from the first 30 songs that play. Post a bunch of lyrics that remind you of pilots.
Step 3: Strike through the songs when someone guesses both artist and track correctly.
Step 4: Looking the lyrics up on a search engine is CHEATING!
Step 5: If you like the game post your own. ETA: Click on song title to listen to track!

Would you like to play a game? )
