roxybisquaint: (sarah news)
Why am I always late to the party when there's something exciting going down? When I hopped on twitter today, I was about an hour behind the news that Syfy had picked up the rights to air all 31 existing episodes of The Sarah Connor Chronicles. Yay!

It just means they'll be airing the reruns, but hey, that's something. My little fangirl brain is doing exactly what everyone else's is doing today. It's thinking this is a step — a real step toward the possibility of more TSCC down the road. I encounter new fans all the time since the show's been available on Netflix, so airing them on Syfy will certainly bring more into the fold.



Sarah Connor back on TV, even in reruns, makes me happy happy happy. My afternoon has been filled with IMs, tweets and posts all over the place, sharing in the joy of this news. If you're even later to the party than I was, allow me to link you up:

[livejournal.com profile] indiefic_scc is organizing a fun little ficathon to mark judgment day. I've never done one of these, but the general idea is that you pick a character (or pairing) and a prompt for a story you want written for you and in exchange, you get assigned to write a story for someone else. Indie will pass out story assignments on March 2 and the stories will be due on April 21, 2011 (judgment day).

Sounds fun, right? Go check it out and sign up.

Being the slacker that I am, I have yet to pimp the new GnothiSeauton.com podcasts that schmacky kicked off several weeks ago. Typically, these are casual fan discussions on a particular TSCC topic, but the latest one is an interview with writer Zack Stenz. You should check it out:

I made... a Sarah Connor Chronicles Christmas tree. Why? Well, I had this metal tree, see. Metal. It's actually a very old tree (40+ years old, I think). It belonged to my grandmother and my mom gave it to me when I first moved away from home. I used it for a few years because it's unique and because it held such fond memories for me, but I've had it boxed up on a shelf in my basement for years now.

After setting up my normal Christmas tree this year, that little old aluminum tree popped into my head for some reason. And since I'm a big freaking dork for TSCC, I naturally put "metal tree" and "Sarah Connor" together (it was a eureka moment in the nerdiest possible way). So I set about making little TSCC-themed ornaments from poster board, construction paper, aluminum foil and various odds and ends around my house.

Merry Christmas TSCC fans!



What you'll find on the tree:

- HK/drone
- savethescc stickers
- bullets & shotgun shells
- a turtle (Sarah's dreams)
- one of Savannah's duckings (Chicky, Fluffy or Feathers, take your pick!)
- shotgun
- Glock
- endo head (based on my pumpkin carving pattern)
- the Turk
- Wizard of Oz book
- nuclear missile (Ok, so it's just a generic GI Joe missile, but you can pretend it's nuclear, right?)
- 2 multi-sided dice (I didn't have a 20-sided die, sadly)
- Cameron's chip (it's one of the flash drives)
- Presidio Alto emblem
- block of C4 w/timer
- drum of radioactive waste from Serrano Point
- queen chess piece
- Andy Goode's Kramnik vs Deep Fritz poster
- the Polaroid of Sarah
- pancakes
- notebook paper w/3 dots
- shard of aluminum from a soda can
- a terminator endoskeleton

I think that's everything.

Did you really think I'd stop at ten? Heh. No. View the whole gallery here (there are 20 of them total now, so they continue onto the second page).


roxybisquaint: (sarah cameron new purpose)
Yeah I did. I made some Sarah Connor Chronicles motivator posters. It's one of the few fandomy things I've never done, so I felt like I had to ;)

View all ten of them here.

The fear of flying I overcame last year was back again. I'd been freaking out for days about this flight to Atlanta. Then we got to the airport and I was totally fine. Then we got on the plane and I was totally not fine. Then the plane took off and I was totally fine again. So the good news is I'm still not afraid of flying. I think it's just going to take more flying before I truly believe it ;)

Oh, while I was feeling fine at the airport before the flight, I decided to eat (can't eat when I'm not fine, so I have to take these opportunities). Pot Belly sandwiches. Yum. And guess who was at the table next to us? Mink Stole. The man was upset that I recognized her and he didn't. Once I told him, he totally recognized her, though. She was on our flight too.

I hate the Atlanta airport. I'm sure it's easy to find your way around if you know the place, but we kept following signs to things that seemed to lead us in a circle. I was glad to just get the hell out of there, get on the train and get to Peachtree Center where I found some tasty coffee and some sanity. From there, we made our way through a series of walkways and hallways to the Marriott and then to the Hilton. Check-in was quick and easy and friendly, but karma intervened and we got stuck in a smoking room. They said it's not, but it clearly is (or was until recently). It's the same floor as last year (couple doors down from last year's room in fact) and last year this was a smoking floor. Anyway, it's fine because I still like the smell of cigarettes.

We spent a couple minutes in the room before heading off to the Sheraton to pickup our badges. We'd heard rumors at Peachtree Center that badge pick-up was running about four hours. WTF? It was bad enough last year wen it took 2 1/2 hours. I thought for sure Dragon*Con would've re-evaluated their incredibly inefficient system for badge distribution and made some improvements. Nope. The line was about a block longer than when we got in it last year. And someone walked by saying we had a six hour wait ahead of us. WTfrakkinF?! I discounted that as lies, though, and it was. It took about 3 1/2 hours to get badges. At least everyone is cheery and chatty in line, which helps the time go by easier.

After badges, we wandered about finding where our first couple panels for Friday were located so we'd be able to get quickly from one to another. There was nothing more to do after that, so we checked out out the bars at the Hilton. Down in the basement, Trader Vic's was way too loud so we defaulted to the quiet lounge off the lobby instead. We took a seat at the bar and discovered we were sitting next to Morena Baccarin and Sean Maher. Cool. We resisted the urge to intrude since they were having conversation with friends, but the man got a little hello nod from Sean Mahrer.

When they left, some fans at another table got up to talk to them in the lobby. There were pictures and excitement for several minutes. When we were done our beers, we chit-chatted with the fans who'd gotten pictures. They were fun and really nice. Since I was wearing some TSCC stickers and buttons, we talked TSCC too and exchanged twitter info. I think we'll end up hanging with them again.

I probably should've pimped this during sign-ups but I forgot. Anyway, there's a Last Author Standing community for TSCC so if anyone missed out, you can eventually get in on Round 2 when they post the sign-ups for that. I think it'll be a while, though.

The voting for Round 1 / Challenge 1 just started (and goes until Sunday), so if you're looking for some fresh short TSCC fic to read, go check it out. The prompt for this one was:

"On the night we first met, John's father, Kyle Reese, told me words I remember to this day. He meant them as a warning, I think of them as words to live by. He told me of an apocalypse yet to come. Like a Pandora's box, he unpacked every horror, every evil, every dark this that haunts our future. He also left me an unborn son to whom he bequeathed what remained in the box after the nightmares fled. Hope." --- Sarah Connor

Voting is open to everyone (you don't have to be a participant to have your say on the best and worst entries). Stories are posted anonymously and votes are kept anonymous as well.

It's been a while since I did any fic writing, so I enjoyed doing it and I'm looking forward to the prompt for challenge #2. That's assuming I don't get voted out this round ;)

I was so bummed when Linda Hamilton dropped out of Dragon*Con. She was who I most wanted to see. Then Gigi Edgley dropped and the man was super bummed (that's who he most wanted to see). But since Summer's been making the con rounds, we kept hoping maybe she'd sign on at some point... and today, she did :)

Aside from just meeting her, I really want to get a picture of her holding my Cameron action figure to go along with the picture I got last year of Thomas Dekker holding my John Connor action figure. That would be SO fun.
roxybisquaint: (save tscc)
And neither are you or you'd be wandering around the Gaslamp district in search of food, drink and general merriment, not reading my LJ. I can't really complain, though. I got to experience it last time and might go again next year. Of course, if I'd known last year that we'd be doing all this savethescc stuff this year, I think I would've planned my trips a bit differently!

The point of this post wasn't to whine about missing out on Sarah Connor Chronicles fandom fun at Comic Con, though. I wanted to update you guys on everything since I've been kind of slacking with savethescc posts lately. We raised all that money and I don't think I ever posted about how it all worked out. Maybe I did, but I'm too lazy to dig through my posts right now to check.

All totalled, TSCC fans raised $5012. With that money, we got the 3-day mobile billboard run, 850 16"x20" tote bags with double-sided printing, 1000 1.75" buttons and 3000 stickers (1000 of each of the three designs). It's amazing how expensive everything really was once shipping and hotel receiving fees got factored in (the Hyatt really soaks you to accept packages). It got a little tense there for a while, wondering if we'd actually be able to afford everything, but we worked it out.

If you're actually heading off to Comic Con one day this week (or maybe you're there and really really bored and found yourself reading this), the billboard should be all over the place on Thursday, Friday and Saturday from about 12 noon to 8pm. Also, Aelysian and some fellow fans are there and they'll be handing out the totes, buttons and stickers to con goers. The best way to keep up with what's happening, is to follow Aelysian on twitter. And if you're planning to be there and can help out, be sure to DM her.

Oh, here's something fun: She discovered a Save Sarah sticker on what looks like the back of a Comic Con location marker sign. If so, it could be one I placed last year (I put them on the backs of several of those signs). Or maybe there are just more fans stickering this year. Either way, it's pretty cool :)

Has it been two weeks yet since I declared a moratorium on subject lines with exclamation points? If it hasn't been, that's just too bad because this required it. The IMAY site posted their Q&A with Lena Headey. If you call yourself a Lena fan, you'll want to read the whole thing, but here are the TSCC-related questions she answered.

Going from Terminator to GoT , both with huge fan followings, is it hard to live up to the fan expectations?
I am constantly encouraged when people enjoy what i do, it makes me very happy that some people "get" what i do .. there is no great mastermind behind it.. so i don't think people have expectations, i think they either dig you or not.. so to those who dig.. THANKYOU

What would you have liked to explore with the role of Sarah Connor that you didn’t get a chance to?
There were so many things i wanted to do with the character and sadly it never happened.. i think she could've been darker and a little more fucked up .. and i wanted to expose more of her isolation.

How much do you miss playing the role of Sarah Connor?
I miss working with Thomas .. we are great friends and it was such a mutual support and encouragement ... he is a wonderfully generous beautiful young actor, i am so excited to see what happens for him.... he is seemingly taking over hollywood , getting the recognition he should.

At the end of the SCC S2 finale, what do you think happens to Sarah Connor? Is she always fated to get cancer? Do you think she ever sees John again?
She should see John again .. they are a great team..they still have alot to teach each other.

This next question is the one I submitted :)

There has been a lot of talk recently about the possibility of a Sarah Connor Chronicles movie. Thomas Dekker, Summer Glau and Brian Austin Green have all said they'd love to come back together for it. You're the only one who hasn't been heard from and you're the whole reason I loved the show! Please tell me you'd be Sarah again if there was a movie.
I would consider it yes.

Yay!
roxybisquaint: (sarah wars wounds)
The persistent rumors that you won't reprise the role of Sarah Connor if there is a TSCC movie are making me sad. Do you know the only reason I've been part of this fandom is because of how awesome you were in the show? Sure, the writing was great and the other actors and their characters were great, but it's the character of Sarah Connor and more specifically your performance that sucked me into the series.

You're an actor and it was a paycheck. I get that. But when your job is to represent an iconic character to millions of fans, there are strings attached. I doubt T3 would've been much better even with a script that included Sarah Connor, but Linda Hamilton's refusal to return to the franchise made it unbearable. Please don't do the same to The Sarah Connor Chronicles.

I know there are no guarantees about a film at this point, but everyone who was involved in the show seems to be pulling for one and has said so publicly. Your continued silence on the topic allow the rumors that you wouldn't be in it to thrive. So please do us a favor and speak up soon. Because if you're walking away from a future TSCC movie, then so am I.

Sincerely,
- Roxy

If you follow [livejournal.com profile] cj2017's TSCC fic (and really, you'd be an Ellison not to), then today is the day you've been waiting for... NEW FIC POSTED! It totally rocks.

Over at savethescc, we've talked off and on for several months about organizing a TSCC con. The Freaking Big Push took priority, though, and we're now trying to get more going on Push 2: The Resurrection. So any con talk is still saved for later, but we all really want to plan one.

Anyway, I'm just talking off the top of my head on this, nothing official and no planning committee is working on it yet...

I want a Sarah Connor Con on April 21, 2011. Judgement day. Actually, let's make it April 19-21, 2011 (if we can manage a three-day event). There's probably not enough time to plan anything for that date and even if there was, it might amount to little more than a big meet-up/party, but I really want us all to do it. I want to hang out with all my fellow TSCC fans and have nerdy fun. So let's start talking ideas. Where should it be? What would we do at this con? Any ideas floating around out there? Lemme hear 'em.

I love love love the character dynamics on The Sarah Connor Chronicles and I'm especially fond of Sarah and Derek. What makes them so great to watch is the tension. At the heart of that is a clash in methodology layered on the unspoken (for a long time, anyway) thread that held them together: Kyle.
