Snowflake Challenge Day 3  

Day 3

In your own space, share a favorite piece of original canon (a TV episode, a song, a favorite interview, a book, a scene from a movie, etc) and explain why you love it so much. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.

Oh, this is difficult. Everyone knows that HP is my favorite forever, but i'm not actually sure I have a favorite bit of canon.

Except maybe that I love thestrals.

My favorite episode, ever, of Star Gate is the Time Loop episode. Season 4, episode whatever. Lmao. I love that one so much.

There's a TON of things I love in Jim Butcher's Dresden files. He's such a good world builder. But Sue.... Sue is my favorite.

Really i could rattle on about a lot of things I love, really. It's so hard to choose.

Heh, it's pretty funny that most of my HP people aren't writing about HP for this question. (I didn't either!) As I told someone else, HP canon is great for its world building and character creation and for everything that it has the potential to be (thus the size and longevity of the fandom); it's not really something that's steeped in incredible, unforgettable moments. Which isn't to say that it doesn't have any memorable bits... but it's more the sum total, the general essence that we love than it is the specifics, I think.

I'm an SGA person rather than an SG-1 person, but YAY STARGATE anyway. XD

It's true, I've seen it. It's the world, the possibilities, that it brings, and the winsome characters. But no specific canon moment is best and brightest. Really, it's the painful ones that stick with one the most, isn't it?

I'm the Stargate snob who hasn't seen much SGA because I just couldn't let go of SG1 lmao. I do plan to see it at some point because i've read enough fic (my friend is a fan and I betaed for her) and seen some of it, and it's been long enough I don't have a bias anymore.

I didn't at all dislike SG1. It was a good show. It just never really grabbed me somehow. The dynamics between the characters in SGA, on the other hand, sucked me in right away and never let me go. I haven't been into a TV show in that must-watch-the-newest-episode-immediately, gimme-all-the-fic kind of way since SGA ended. If I hadn't stumbled into HP fandom first, I likely would have ended up in SGA fandom. But there was no way I could have managed two large fandoms at the same time. o_O (But I can totally understand being all sour grapes about SG1 ending, because of course any huge fan would be!)

I think, if the switch hadn't been so quick to SGA, i would have been fine jumping on board. But it was a bit of sour grapes at the time. Someday i'll find time to sit down and marathon (and probably love) SGA though.

...And then be annoyed that you missed the fandom in its heyday, right? LOL
Gelseygelsey on January 4th, 2019 02:13 am (UTC)
Oh yes. Though I know it's still around rather a bit.

Sue is definitely one of my very favorite Dresdenverse things :D
Gelseygelsey on January 4th, 2019 04:32 am (UTC)
I love a LOT about that world and series, but I'm not sure he's ever going to top my favorite necromantic dinosaur.

OMG I LOVE SUE!!! Also, Tyrannosaurus BOB! Hee. :D I was stuck in traffic when I first heard that scene, and I was laughing so hard and fist-pumping and cheering that people near me were looking at me very strangely, LOL.

I'm not sure ANYTHING I read will ever top that book and those scenes, tbh. It's FANTASTIC.
