I'm making this post very early just in case I don't get back by 8 (I'm being dragged out to dinner). In about 50 minutes we'll be watching "The Farm" full of Kara-badassery, reproductive wtf-ery, and Michael Trucco being pretty.

Ready, set, ...?

Hey all! Just a reminder that we'll be rewatching "The Farm" tonight at 8PM eastern.

(I'll be in the car all day, but I should be where I'm headed by then.)

Okay guys, here's the rewatch post!

Let's hear it for killer robots and Pilots being flirty (yeah, I know it's not with each other, but I've gotta put something here).

Tonight, at 8pm eastern time, we will be watching "Fragged".

"What do you mean, there's no Kara in this episode?"

And then at 9pm we will be watching "Resistance".

"Gods, another script with no Pilots!"

This is it. 30 minutes 'til season 2!

Come cry with Lee over the lack of pilots (and his father being maybe dead).

Sorry I wasn't around yesterday--RL prevented me from getting online, so I'm adjusting my DPP schedule slightly and playing comment catch-up. (And now it's Saturday in my time zone--whoops)  But now I'm bring you the combined arc of PEGASUS and RESURRECTION SHIP 1&2.  I actually have an appropriate icon for this one, which is very exciting for me.

Kara: I could use some backup.  I'll understand if you can't.
Lee: You know better than that.
Kara: Yeah, I guess so.
Lee: People have to have this, Kara.  Trust.  Your word and my word.  We don't have this, then we really are no different than the Cylons.
Kara: Thank you

let's all just be friendly )

Tell me true: would you have watched Battlestar Pegasus?

DPP: Home

I don't think any discussion of shippery episodes would be complete without that marvel of marvels, that wonder of wonders...no, not the one you're thinking of, the other one...that's right, I'm talking about HOME.  Pilots have their first (onscreen) kiss.  We got our comm name.  Buddy!cop pilots became a thing.  Lee declared his love for her.  You know.  NBD.  (that is my new favorite expression)

When I considered what clips and quotes to use for this episode, I mostly wanted to use all of them, but I restrained myself.  Somewhat.  A little.  Anyway, this one was inevitable:

Kara: What was that middle part again?
Lee: Hmm?  What do you mean?
Kara: Did you say you love me?
Lee: Well, um…
Kara: Lee Adama loves me.
Lee: No, all I meant was…
Kara: No, seriously, very sweet.  You love me.
Lee: *laughs*
Kara: No, you love me.  You can't take it back.  There's no takebacks.* 
Lee: You're dreaming it, Kara.
Kara: You love me.
Lee: You're dreaming it.
Kara: You love me.
Lee: Dreamer.
Kara:  Mmmhm.  Okay.

*ed. note: you mean there ARE no takebacks

"Remind me to send you to the brig later." )

So what are your favorite things about Home (besides the obvious)?
For me, it's similar to Kobol's Last Gleaming--both episodes represent a time when BSG could do masterful things with both plot and characters, instead of all one or the other (*coughseason3andseason4cough*).  While watching Home, the episode sets my shipper heart alight, but I also appreciate it from a more wholistic standpoint as a fine work of art.  I have yet to encounter anyone who doesn't like this episode.  Even if later canon contradicts that Earth bit and if the Cylons were on Caprica and Kobol why didn't they use the Arrow themselves and is that a projection what is going on...

Over on my livejournal I posted some deleted scenes from Black Market, Scar, Sacrifice and Captain's Hand. I recently came across an old post from [livejournal.com profile] beccatoria from five years ago where she had captured and saved them. I took a shot and found out she had saved them all this time. :) If you have time go check them out. They are also on my pilotography web site, as most of them have Lee or Kara in them.

Three scenes from Season 2. Make a post guessing which three scenes were chosen and/or the three S2 scenes you would have chosen. Then have fun putting the puzzles together. Please come back after completing all three puzzles and provide any feedback on puzzle play or problems that you wish to share. However, do not reveal which three scenes were chosen so other puzzle participants may be surprised. I will post the three finished puzzles at the end of the day along with prizes for anyone who accurately guessed a scene or scenes chosen prior to completion of the puzzles. Enjoy!!




p.s.--After you click the link to go to the puzzle site, you may have to hit refresh in order to pull up the puzzle. Occasionally when I click a link, it brings me to a blank page. Refresh seems to fix the problem if you happen to encounter it.

I have had sooo much fun the past few days and have been excited to see and read everyone's contributions to the DPP.

The SitRep:

99 Bottles of Ambrosia: We're stopped at 85 and almost to the drunk and sloppy finish line. C'mon and have a bottle!
Wedding Bells: Have you check out the pilot's wedding registry at the IKEA ship? If not, you should!
Marital Bliss and an Unexpected Note: Pilots honeymooning, noise complaints, Kara in hack (again), Lee to her rescue and Papadama making sure the fleet's best assets give him some peace. Gotta read this one, folks.
It Was Only A Matter of Time: Pilots having adorable babies and a strong need for BABY!FIC. SOMEONE WRITE SOME BABY!COMMENT!FIC please!

Today, we're gonna let the cracky goodness bubble along while we think music. There have been a lot of posts related to pilots songs, but I've decided that I need a definitive No Takebacks Pilot Mixtape and I need your help to make one.

What songs to you want on the No Takebacks Pilot Mixtape? )

It has been a fabulous week, everyone.  Thank you so much for coming along for the ride.

We've got the re-watch coming up tonight, so I'm taking the episode we're watching as my theme.  Lay Down Your Burdens.

The Beginning of the End )

With the return of the rewatch (and don't forget, this week's rewatch of LDYB I will take place SUNDAY at 10 PM EDT), we return you to your regularly scheduled recs as well. And, oh, finale fic, how I love you...

Please keep in mind, folks, that this is only the tip of the iceberg that is 2.19 & 2.20 fic, and that I am well aware of this. There is a vast amount of truly awesome fic out there concerning (and/or taking off from) these two episodes. For now I've picked just a few of my favorites, with the intention of adding more when my fingers aren't about to fall off. :D Until then, by all means, feel free to comment here with any fics I haven't listed that you feel should be required reading by Kara/Lee shippers.

Oh, how I love the fic that has (and will, I hope!) come from these two eps...

Almost Rhymes With Orange by [livejournal.com profile] mercurial_wit/[livejournal.com profile] fahye
Caught in the Crossfire by [livejournal.com profile] leavingslowly
Until the Truth Comes Out by [livejournal.com profile] stars_like_dust (There are no real spoilers in this fic, since it was written as speculation/future!fic. However, I'd say it has to diverge from canon after "Sacrifice" and before "The Captain's Hand," with, uh, the rescue of a certain resistance leader in there somewhere too, a bit ahead of schedule.)
digging a hole (nothing romantic about the hours we keep) by [livejournal.com profile] bantha_fodder (This is a Lee fic with some delicious Lee/Kara moments)

[identity profile] thrace-adama.livejournal.com
Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] taragel for her help with this week's recs! This list would have been MUCH shorter if it weren't for her, let's just say that. :) Thanks to the rest of the "collective brain trust" for piping in too. ;)

Wish You Were Here by [livejournal.com profile] wisteria_

Under the Shadow by [livejournal.com profile] daphnaea

We Bend, We Break by [livejournal.com profile] callmebombshell

Missing Things by [livejournal.com profile] leavingslowly

Annnd a little junk food for the shipper soul after all that dark fic:
Speak to Me in Kisses by Farringtongirl

The Alternative Scar by [livejournal.com profile] bsg_rp_apollo and [livejournal.com profile] wulfgrl71

So Much by [livejournal.com profile] raedances

This next fic is unfinished (I'm guessing forever) and thus something I wasn't sure I should list, but since RabidRaeann's "Nugget Slang" series is so entertaining, I figured I'd rec this one too for those who can handle the lack of resolution. Minotaur, Part I, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4, and Part 5 by [livejournal.com profile] rabid1st

Seriously, why is there not more Scar fic out there? I'd love to see someone fix this ep (*cough*Ray*cough*). And what about Sacrifice? If there were one ep I REALLY wish there were more for, it's that one. The *potential* there, people! Just sayin'.
[identity profile] workerbee73.livejournal.com

Meet back here at 9:30 CST / 10:30 CST.  There's gonna be a ruckus! (Actually probably not, but I just really like that word today.  Ruckus.  Ruck-us.  Just say it out loud a couple of times.  Good stuff.)

[identity profile] thrace-adama.livejournal.com
Fair warning: I know a lot of people hate this ep with the fire of a thousand suns and all (though it doesn't even compare to some of the awfulness we got in S4, does it?!), but I can get pretty defensive about it. It's a LEE ep, after all, and he's my boy! While I agree with everyone else that the whole thing came out of left field and was poorly executed, I really like some of the ideas behind it, as well as what it revealed about who Lee was and had been. What can I say? Screwed-up Lee is hot! And I'd say the fic for this ep backs me up... :) Here are a few of my favorites:

Beauty and the Beast (in two parts) by [livejournal.com profile] innibis (Okay, so this one is completely AU from the miniseries on. It also includes a character from Razor we've not yet been introduced to at this point in the series. But for all that, it's unquestionably a Black Market fic. I feel like this is what Black Market could have/should have been in terms of what it does for Lee's development as a complex and only too human character--with Kara actually getting to play a part, as she should have gotten to in BM. If you've already read it, you know what I mean. If you haven't, you're in for a treat.)

Secrets by [livejournal.com profile] greensleeves (From what I remember, though there are only hardcore spoilers up through 2.13, the whole thing is based on speculation about Black Market.)

Scars That Words Have Carved (in nine chapters) by [livejournal.com profile] rayruz (Note: this fic BEGINS around the Black Market time period, but as the story progresses, does include spoilers for later eps as well.)

Untouchable (in two parts) by [livejournal.com profile] taragel (Set somewhere post-BM; Tara describes it as a sort of anti-Scar.)

Early Drafts of Surprise Endings by [livejournal.com profile] wisteria_

Double Dates Are the Best, Right? by [livejournal.com profile] anni_erie (I am pretty sure I've already rec'd this, since it's actually set pre-mini, but I'm ridiculously fond of this little fic and it includes Gianne so...yeah.)

See? If nothing else, it cannot be denied that BM inspired some FANTASTIC fic (of which I'm sure I've only scratched the surface), whether out of love or hate.

As always, please feel free to post your own recs in the comments!
[identity profile] workerbee73.livejournal.com


Meet back here at 9:30 CST / 10:30 EST for a very special liveblog.  Black Market, my friends.  Go and gather whatever you need (booze, fortitude, a heightened sense of the absurd) to help you make it through.

Godspeed, Shipper Nation.
