Yesterday, one of the questions I asked Shipper Nation at large was what their favourite pilothair was, and since I'm really into trivia (hair being important trivia) today is going to be the day for the Hair!Report!

     where it all began     

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.

Hello everyone!  How lovely to be here for this week's DPP :)

I think we can all agree that Kara and Lee could use a lot of help in the communication department, so today's project is to use the free online forms at The Bureau of Communication to help them get their messages across!

The website has a selection of forms to (sarcastically) cover many emotions and occasions.  You can fill out any form at their website, email a copy to yourself, then save the picture file and share it here in the comments.  I can't wait to see what you all come up with!  Happy Monday!

Yesterday gave us some amazing icons (and then the stuff I made), but feel free to add to the pretty.

As for today, it's all about the crack!

Post the odd, the silly, the off-the-wall. Have fun, go nuts (and if LJ is stupid and screens things don't worry, I'll be trolling the post and will unlock them).

It's Friday, and since weekends (especially Easter weekend) are lazy time for us, I'll keep the DPP short and simple - your task for today, should you choose to accept it, is simply this - share your favourite pic/s of pilots!

Screencaps, fanart, manips, icons are all welcome, and if anyone wants to bring some fresh squee or crack to an old pic by captioning it, that'd be even better! Like this:

Kara: What do you mean, I just gave birth to a PTERODACTYL???!!!??!?
Lee: I didn't know you had it in you either, but it's at least ten pounds.

And so we are winding up to the big day, tomorrow is Christmas Eve, you have the kids performance and the wrapping to go, you have to begin defrosting the monster sized turkey and keep the cat and or dog from trying to kill itself by getting at the frozen behemoth (Yes, there is a story behind that one)

So I thought, go easy on poor shipper nation! Caption Contest

Tomorrow as part of the DPP there will be a poll to vote for those you really love

so here is the picture you have to put a caption to!

Alright, after the dose of angst that was yesterday's DPP, I think today can do with something a bit more lighthearted. Something like....

Yeah, that's Lee with Jake the dog. Read more )

Evening ladies and fanfolks! It's FINALLY Saturday, which means that it's PARTY DAY! WOOP!

So, bring your joy, your squee, your gifs, your pretty pictures, your giant sparkly text, ANYTHING YOU WANT! It's a free-for-all yo', anything goes.

Now, I know free-for-alls can be daunting, you never know where to start, what to say, how to be cool in the face of so much CHOICE! So, I'll start you off and we'll see where the night takes us.

If you're around and up for bingo, check in at the BINGO comment below so I know how many people are around. My plan is to have two games, bingo and reverse bingo, so even if you're not around for the first game, you'll hopefully get to play the second, and there will also be some mini games along the way :)

So the really big question, guys, when all's said and done, is this... )

Hey there shipper nation!

It's so nice to see you all again! I haven't had as much time for DPP recently as I would have liked, but this week I am taking the wheel so I have to make time. And like the cylons I have a (wacky, slightly ridiculous, probably won't work at all but I'll give it a shot anyway and then claim that whatever happens it was what I meant to do) plan.

I do hereby declare this week to be party week, and as such, I would like to play some games. Games are fun, everyone can take part, AND, you win prizes.

Today's post has three seperate portions.

But what are these portions? you ask... )

Ok, keep your eye on the comments for the first round of questions, and have fun!

Happy weekend, everyone! Thank you all for making this such a fun week, I've had a big grin on my face every time I opened my inbox! :)

For this weekend, I thought it would be fun to share some cute pictures that remind us of pilots. Like this:

I've copied a few links to the first websites of animal pictures that came up on my google search: HERE, MORE HERE, EVEN MORE HERE, and THE MOST HERE. Have fun taking a look, and share some with us! Let us know what pilots!moment they remind you of. You can share other silly pictures, too, not just animals. Looking forward to seeing what you find :)

More silliness below... )

Good night/Good morning, everyone!  It's going to be a long and largely Internet-less day for me, so I'm going to go ahead and put up today's topic now, but feel free to keep adding to the previous post if the spirit moves you!  Thanks for the fun, snarky, beautiful, surprising art you've all created!

As you all know, No_Takebacks is a rewatch community, among other things.  It has struck me that (as far as I know) we are lacking THE BASIC TOOL for rewatches, namely ...

Hi, everyone. I'm Rachel, very pleased to be driving the DPP bus this week :) I want to say a huge thanks to [livejournal.com profile] poppypickle for her brilliant Seven Dwarves Edition, and the smile she put on my face gave me the urge to share. So I'd like today to be our Shipper Nation Holiday:


Tell us about the things that are making you happy. It can be fic, vids, episodes, authors, old favorites, new discoveries, Kara/Lee, BSG more widely, or real life. An appreciation thread -- Let's celebrate all the great people and great creations going on out there!

Lots of Joy below... )

If you have never heard of the humor blog Overheard In New York, you have probably been missing out on some hilarity. It's pretty much what it sounds like: People send in snippets of other people's exchanges they happen to hear in NYC, and the result is a hell of a lot of random, at times senseless out-of-context dialogue.

Now, everyone has moments where they realize, "That would have been really weird and made absolutely no sense if somebody overheard that." And what with the post-apocalyptic claustrophobia of the fleet, I'm sure that moments like these happen on Galactica all the time. So for today I want you to invent some. You may like to browse the NYC blog to get an idea of the format, but here are some I came up with to get us started:

Captain entering briefing room: How's the training going?
Pilot: I'm about to shove this new nugget up your-
Captain: You know, I think I'll just come back when you're in a better mood.
Pilot: Good plan.

--Overheard by Hot Dog

Dismayed Raptor pilot: I mean, I always did think you had a secret little kink for...
Viper pilot: What? Mad scientists?
Raptor pilot: Politicians.
Viper pilot: He'd only been the vice president for like an hour, though.
Raptor pilot: ...Fast work.


Stall #2: Is it bigger than a stick of butter?
Stall #1: Why are you always trying to get me to play '20 questions' while we're in the shower?
Stall #4: Who's that on the end?
Stall #3: Starbuck's tryin' to ask if Apollo's tool is bigger than a stick of butter.
Stall #4: Oh.
Stall #1: I haven't even thought of what it is yet.
Stall #3: Your dick?
Stall #1: What?!
Stall #2: ...So how big is it?
Stall #1: I don't believe that's a yes-or-no question, Lieutenant.

Okay, I realize this is an odd topic, even for me, but hey, it's the beginning of a long weekend for many of us, so why not sit back and make room for something just a little bit surreal? :)

For those of you who've never encountered it, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead is a play by Tom Stoppard that is set inside Shakespeare's play Hamlet.  The idea is that two minor characters from Hamlet - Rosencrantz and Guildenstern - become the main characters of this play, and they spend most of their time wandering around trying to figure out what is going on.  They only get caught up in the action for very brief moments, and the rest of the time they analyze the few things they've been told to try to understand who they are supposed to be and what they are supposed to do (for example, Hamlet calls them his "friends" so they assume they knew him at school.  The King and Queen ask them to help Hamlet, so they spend a lot of time trying to figure out what's wrong with him).  They don't remember anything from the past because they only exist when they're onstage or waiting to be onstage.  They don't know their own names, they don't know what relationships they're supposed to have with people, they just act polite and hope they can make it through the play in one piece.  Of course, they don't.  In the play Hamlet they are killed, and once they begin to suspect that they are trapped in a tragedy their story becomes a meditation on fate and free will and the meaning of death.

I would like to reimagine Season 4-4.5 of BSG as Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Pilots.  Let's imagine that Kara and Lee pop into existence at the beginning of this Season with no memory of what has happened before or who they are supposed to be, they just know that they're in this together.  In their copious time off-screen, they wander around and have secret conferences to try to deduce what is going on and how they are supposed to feel about each other and about the other characters in their lives, but they only know whatever they can piece together through observation and the clues that other characters drop in passing.  What would the last season look like through their eyes if they were uninformed observers just going along for the ride and trying to act like they know what they're doing?  What right (and wrong) conclusions might they jump to?  What impressions would they form of other characters?  Would they even try to figure out the plot?  What would they decide about their Fates, and how might they try to change them?  Most importantly, what would they decide about each other?

And if all of this seems too weird and/or complicated to think about over the weekend, then feel free to get into the spirit of the play by sharing pics of Kara and Lee (or Jamie and Katee) with their best confused, WTF? expressions.  That will help us all get into the proper frame of mind! :)

Here's a little quote from the play to give you a sense of what it's like:

Player (Leoben?): Events must play themselves out to their aesthetic, moral and logical conclusion.
Guildenstern (Kara?): And what's that, in this case?
Player: It never varies — we aim at the point where everyone who is marked for death dies.
Guildenstern: Marked?
Player: Between "just desserts" and "tragic irony" we are given quite a large scope for our particular talent. Generally speaking, things have gone about as far as they can possibly go when things have gotten about as bad as they can reasonably get.
Guildenstern: Who decides?
Player: Decides? It is written. We're tragedians, you see. We follow direction. There is no choice involved. The bad end unhappily, the good unluckily. That is what tragedy means.

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 (1994)

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 (1989)

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!

Alright you lot, for today I have something a little different.  The thing is, some of us remember fandom before this comm, and some joined just after the finale, and some have only just discovered the show...and just about every time I read the comments on this site I find new and unfamiliar faces (by faces, I of course mean usernames).  So I propose...(drumroll please)...a friending meme!

Now, I've just taught myself how to do this code box thing so let's hope it works.  Anyway, you can copy and paste the following code into your comments.

I valiantly tried to do one of those code box things but the html was being very, very difficult and I gave up.  You guys can just copy and paste from here.  Remember that each line is, of course, optional.  Now go, talk to people, and be merry!

<b>Age/Location (if you want):</b>
<b>What got you into BSG/Kara&Lee?</b>
<b>Favorite character(s):</b>
<b>Favorite episode:</b>
<b>Favorite scene:</b>
<b>Other fandoms:</b>
<b>What do you post on your journal?</b>
<b>Three random facts about you:</b>
<b>If you could meet any person (dead, alive, real, fictional) who would you choose?</b>
<b>Anything else you'd like to share?</b>
