BSG S4 promo  
A brief interlude from the Garden Party: thank you to my entire friendslist (hee!), led by wisteria_, for alerting me to the new S4 promo for BSG. I have been fidgeting at my desk ALL DAY waiting to get home to watch it and squeeeeee!!! *claps hands delightedly* That 'We're going the wrong way!' scream at the end was AWESOME. Definitely got my heart racing! As did Roslin with a gun and pilot huggage. Pilot HUGGAGE! Please, please, please, I am begging that that's their reunion hug and that it is not interrupted by alternapartners in any way.

So yes. Much love for promo! But would I be a terrible awful annoying fangirl if I said I wished there had been a little more Lee? *hides*

Promo: Last season Starbuck returned
Boppy: YAY!! STARBUCK!!
Promo: 4 were revealed, 1 remains unknown
Boppy: Eeek! *bites nails* *bounces*
Promo: Baltar was released but not forgiven.
Boppy: Yes! Yes! And LEE WAS AWESOME! *waits*
Promo: *flashy sequence of much excitement*
Boppy: \o/ Oh, I spotted Lee for a fraction of a second!
Promo: Destiny is not what it seems.
Boppy: ...
Kara: WE'RE GOING THE WRONG WAY!
Boppy: ... Maybe? And also: WHERE'S LEE!!!!? :(

*giggles* I know, I know... I'm an ungrateful brat. :p I just... wanted more Lee. I'll shut up now. Especially since I don't want to know any spoilers beyond the promo. It's nerve-wracking enough!

Oh, and I hope to see more BSG fans at my Garden Party. I know Garden Parties don't sound very Battlestar-y, but you should totally come gatecrash it in your Vipers or something. *nods* :D

"I just... wanted more Lee."

I said it too!...In fact,

I'm going to shout it to the skies

' I WANT MORE LEE!!!'

but oh, the pilot hugging! I just keep playing it over and over again. I am soo hopeful.

Yes! Yes! It bears out my idea/hope that having Kara appear to Lee before anyone else was deliberate, renewing the idea that she comes 'home' to him.

But I'm very glad I wasn't alone in wanting more Lee. :)

No, absolutely not at all. ;) I was a bit bummed that there wasn't a bit more Lee. Especially if he was in street clothes rather than uniform. But at least we got to see Lee. The Helo and Sharon fans got nothing.

That's true! I should be grateful. *nods* Poor old Helo's probably been demoted and promoted and demoted again 20 times by now, *lol*... and not deemed promo-worthy. Awww!

SQUEEEEEEE

What a promo. *comes down for a sec*

And yeah, um, MORE LEE! (Though I bet they're saving that sort of reveal for later)

Roslin with gun!
Baltar with harem!
Adama with Six and throwin' the Bucker on the floor!

Oh the humanity! *g*

But um, yeah, the promo was TOTAL JOY.

No, I think you're just being yourself and I am right there with you. :) But we got a HUG! Even though Kara looked less than enthused, but I don't care because Lee looked "so emotional baby" like a Whitney Houston song and that's what I care about, that LEE gets to hug her and YAY.

Wow, apparently *I* am the terrible awful annoying fangirl, LOL.

Hmm, I think Kara just looked distracted and stressed out... I think I'll let her off the hook on that. And I've been watching closely and she seems to closer her eyes a bit at the end, which definitely I like. :)

ee looked "so emotional baby" like a Whitney Houston song and that's what I care about, that LEE gets to hug her and YAY.
Yes, yes, YES! :D Hee!

I just want my Lee to get his hugs and cuddles and kisses and sex, yo! *gets carried away*

Hee! Yeah she came back in the last few minutes of the season finale. It was in the middle of a big Cylon raid and Lee saw this weird blip on his radar and went investigating and it was Kara and she said she knew the way to Earth and would take them there. This icon shows them flying together.

Coool! I'm sure it will be worth it. SO excited about S4!
canadiangirl_86 on October 9th, 2007 05:22 pm (UTC)
I'm hoping the lack of Lee is because they're really keeping his story under wraps because it's just THAT awesome. *crosses fingers*

OK, pilot huggage made me sosososo happy, but Kara looks so worried in that shot. Like she knows something is going to happen already. To her? Or...to him? Hmm.

Her scream at the end gives me shivers, dude.

I LIKE IT! *nods* I can see how that could be... sometimes he is just so awesome I can barely believe it... ;p

ike she knows something is going to happen already. To her? Or...to him? Hmm.
Yeah... and she wasn't worried in the sky... maybe she knows that she's going to be taken away from him or he's going to be taken away from her, or they won't believe her about Earth or... ok, worst case scenario she's just pissed it's not Anders welcoming her. But I choose not to go there!

Her scream at the end gives me shivers, dude.
Oh, YES. It's haunting!

So, um, *looks casual* this Lee/Kara thing. One could maybe find out more? You know, to, uh, satisfy a, um, purely offhand curiosity. *coughs*

:D Let me hook you up...
There's a quick run-down of the essential premise/connection on the end of this post.

Piloty picspam with phallic symbols (always good!)

Links to various goodies here: http://community.livejournal.com/sasa_hq/3191.html#cutid1

queenofthorns (queen of leecaps) explains how she fell for pilots: http://community.livejournal.com/sasa_hq/2413.html#cutid1

And, um, feel free to ask me any questions! :D
Or if you want fic or vid recs, let me know!
Blue: Flirt! UnFlirt!blue_meridian on October 11th, 2007 01:46 am (UTC)
The run down: Well hello there, Lee... (Nooooo! Not Hornblower! It is angst personified!!)

The (phallic) pic spam: O.o Oh mymymy.

Goodies Linkage: *purrs*

Falling for pilots: Yep. *facepalm*

Lee is seriously in love with Kara, isn't he? I am much less sure of Kara, though.

FIC RECS. Please. :) But happy endings, if possible? I am a delicate little flower. :P
K, Bop or Boppy--take your pick!: Kara Lee no usbop_radar on October 11th, 2007 02:05 am (UTC)
Lee adooooooooooooooooooooooores Kara. It's absolutely gorgeous to behold. But yes, I too am less sure of Kara. Though a hundred rabid Kara-y Kara/Lee fans out there would jump on me for saying that and insist that he's her soulmate. ;) Nearly every K/L shipper is either a Kara-pov person or a Lee-pov person (I'm Lee) so I don't really 'get' Kara. I love her, but I don't 'get' her and I feel all nervous about her affection for Lee. (latteaddict made an entire massive picspam of Kara's love for Lee for me recently--yup, I'm that insecure, fandom feels they need to 'rescue' me!)

For fic, I refer to daybreak777's recs: happy fluffy pilots. I also recommend dionusia's tickle!fic (my prompt!) and my personal favourite smut: Intra.
Blue: Janet - O.oblue_meridian on October 11th, 2007 01:51 am (UTC)
And please share why Lee seems to be undressing Kara in some screencaps?? As in literally.
K, Bop or Boppy--take your pick!: Kara Lee no usbop_radar on October 11th, 2007 01:54 am (UTC)
Because he IS! Hee. :)
BSG is a terrible tease but it does deliver... eventually! In a certain episode called 'Scar' (S2), pilots tried to get it on for the first time. It was an aborted effort, but Lee did get his hand down Kara's pants briefly--see icon! ;)

There's been more since then but how much spoilage do you want for S3?
Blue: Chloe - Smile2blue_meridian on October 11th, 2007 01:58 am (UTC)
I adore spoilers!
K, Bop or Boppy--take your pick!: Lee owns Karabop_radar on October 11th, 2007 02:14 am (UTC)
Ok then! *bounces*

So, in S2 in 'Scar' they got drunk and Kara jumped Lee and he thought they were going to live happily ever after and make babies but then she freaked out when he asked to slow down with the frakking (awwww!) and she got all angsty on him and told him she was in love with the guy she'd left behind on Caprica (presumed dead). He said 'enough with lovin the dead guys!' and she slapped him then pashed him again and then ran away.

Lee was sad.

Then Lee started dating an annoying girl called Dee in an effort to get over Kara.

Then Kara rescued her (not dead) lover Anders and pashed him demonstratively in front of Lee, thus breaking Lee's heart into ittie bittie pieces.

Then the S3 finale did this EVIL EVIL jump forward 6 months and we didn't get to see what happened in between but suddenly Kara was married to Anders and Lee was married to Dee and Kara and Lee were not speaking to one another and NO-ON KNEW WHY FOR THE ENTIRE HIATUS BETWEEN SEASONS. (You're so lucky you missed that bit!)

So in S3, there was a whole big thing where they had tried to settle on a planet but then the Cylons came and captured them and Lee saved the day by rescuing the last of the settlers (including Kara who had been tortured by Leoben during the Cylon occupation).

But we still didn't know what The Thing was between Lee and Kara. An episode called 'Unfinished Business' cleared that up: they'd got drunk together (again) and wandered off to see where Kara's house was going to be built. Lee got all earnest and asked her if she really wanted to settle down with Anders ('is this really the person you want to be with for the rest of your life?') and then he made a move on her (Woot!) and they made love (srsly it was the most romantic sex you'll ever see) and THEN as if that wasn't enough, Lee stood up and screamed 'I LOVE KARA THRACE AND I DON'T CARE WHO FRAKKING KNOWS IT!' to the night sky. And made Kara scream it too. Only she screamed 'KARA THRACE LOVES LEE ADAMA'. And then they kissed more but Kara was angsty. And next thing we knew she was waking up in his arms and looking worried and sneaking off back to town.

*pauses for breath*
Blue: Chloe - Watchingblue_meridian on October 11th, 2007 02:20 am (UTC)
O.O *jaw drops* Holy crap!! So where did things leave off at the end of season 3??
K, Bop or Boppy--take your pick!: Pilots: co-pathetic foreverbop_radar on October 11th, 2007 02:27 am (UTC)
And then Lee woke up all alone and woobie, but still hopeful, and he walked back into town only to have his father mosey up and say 'hey, son, did you hear that Kara got married? Ain't that awesome?!' while munching some peanuts. (I'm not even joking.)

Lee's heart broke into ittie bittie pieces again and he pretty much nearly threw up from shock. Then he ran into Kara with Sam's arm draped around her shoulders and Sam was all bouncy like an (annoying) big dopey puppy and saying 'hey man, ain't it great we got married?!' And Lee said 'good luck: you'll need it' pointedly and stalked off.

We assume he married Dee as revenge. ;) He also ate a lot of noodles and got fat. It was a whole bad time for him.

Anyway, once Kara was back on Galactica Lee went into exercise overdrive and got really fit again (geeee, I wonder why!) and then they had this thing where crew members got to challenge each other to boxing matches to work out their, *cough*, frustrations. Kara challenged Lee even though he was having none of it ('it's over, Kara!') but she goaded him and goaded him until he punched her in the face (pilots like punching) and then they fought and fought and basically fought each other to a standstill where they were just clinging to each other's bodies to stay upright. And then Kara said 'I missshhed you' (through broken teeth) and Lee said 'mussshheeddd you too' (through even more smushed up jaw) and fandom went awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww.

After that, they were all over each other. Briefly and angstily, because obviously they were both still married. Lee wanted to leave Dee but Kara is religious and said her marriage vows were sacred, she'd never break them even though she'd happily fool around with him. At which point Lee made another 'I think I'm going to throw up from emotional pain' face and said he couldn't do that, he couldn't live with himself. So there was much pain and woe and angst.

But then Sam pretty much sussed what was going on and told Kara she should go to Lee if she loved him. And Dee was getting really shitty and threatened to leave Lee. And Lee got all angsty about this and realised he'd been a total shit to her. So when Kara came and said to Lee 'if I left Sam would you still leave Dee?' Lee asked (fairly legitimately, imho) 'how do I know this isn't just another Starbuck about face and you'll dump me again tomorrow?' Kara got pissy and walked off. Lee looked confused and hurt and then went and re-proposed to Dee, promising to be a better husband. Much fandom furore over this.

Then Kara died. But not before Lee stared long and hard into her eyes and told her he'd do anything for her. She was afraid to fly because she was hallucinating and he offered to fly her wing (which was nice because he's her superior) and he did and then she flew into this maelstrom and told Lee she knew what she was doing, asked him to let her go (he was screaming 'Nooooo!' on the comm) and told him she'd see him 'on the other side'. Her viper exploded in front of him.

Three episodes passed and Lee mourned Kara. Then in the season finale, in the middle of a battle he saw a blip on his radar, went investigating and found it was Kara. His jaw dropped. She said 'it's really me, Lee. I've found the way to Earth and I'm going to take us there.' and then the camera panned out away from the two vipers flying side by side and panned through the universe to.... Earth. :D

When I was watching that 'The Story So Far' (which goes to the end of s2) I was terribly surprised that Apollo's arrow was an actual arrow. I was going "Oh, there's gotta be a catch..." because surely it was Starbuck! Shippiness aside, he's CAG, she's ace pilot... (shippiness is added bonus!)

So, yay!! Because, damnit, it would be cool if Starbuck was the true arrow.
K, Bop or Boppy--take your pick!: Kara/Lee dreamybop_radar on October 11th, 2007 03:10 am (UTC)
I totally think Starbuck is the true 'Arrow'. ;) There are hints in the show that she may be the reincarnation or personification of the goddess Aurora who brings the new dawn. She definitely seems to be a key link in the prophecies leading them to Earth. For my little Lee-loving heart I'm just glad that Lee's involved too--I have a huge thing for Lee/Kara/Destiny and I want to believe that the two of them are a crucial connection in bringing the fleet to safety. The S4 trailer is most encouraging! Have you seen it?

I love their pilot-CAG relationship too. I love them as friends, colleagues, almost-siblings, whatever! The shippiness is definitely a bonus.

If you want a happy piloty vid (and don't mind the self-pimp) there's my: Road rage--early pilot playfulness. ;)

Oh, sweet! That's the kind of angle I like to see. I have seen the s4 trailer! In interest of sanity preservation, I'm liable to only view select scenes until s4 starts. That way I will not die of tension! Although I may anyway as BSG seems to do cliffhangers in spades. *whimper*

Silly, K Bop! I love self-pimping! Otherwise I miss things! I have downloaded it and will give it a proper watching tomorrow - I want to save it until I am not half asleep! It's 11:30 PM here and tomorrow is a work day, so I must be getting to bed. Thank you so much for the assistance!!
