PIRATES!  
Love, LOVE, this movie.

I was spoiled for everything (which may have helped actually -- I didn't have my attention pulled away by trying to figure out what was going on) and it didn't matter at all. Still got caught up in it. Some gorgeous visuals (and I'm not just talking about Orlando *g*)

I thought I was prepared -- I still very nearly cried.

I'm too attached to these fictional people. Really.

And while I don't usually care about writer intention, bless Ted and Terry for telling their intent for the closing scene, becasue otherwise my heart would be in tiny little pieces.

I have to go again.

Hi, you don't know me but I was looking for some sg1 fics and saw this post and had to ask you something...

And while I don't usually care about writer intention, bless Ted and Terry for telling their intent for the closing scene, becasue otherwise my heart would be in tiny little pieces.

I remember reading something about what the green light meant but do you know where I can actually read what Ted and Terry said? I think I need that to watch again;) Thanks.

Unfortunately you can't at the moment, Ted and Terry's Wordplayer site is down for the weekend holiday. But here are the links to the posts in their forum that explain how the curse was broken. Unfortunately the applicable dialogue didn't stay in the movie, so the final film is more ambiguous (and OMG heart-wrenchingly sad) than the screenwriters meant it to be.

there's this one:

I wasn't able to read it yet, but thank you so much for finding the links.

What's funny is that I don't find it sad, even if the curse isn't broken... But, ah, I'm weird like that. ;)

hm. So if, say, Sam had to go off and tend to Final Four Cylon metaphysical crap and could only come back to Kara one day every ten years, so he'd only see her maybe seven DAYS in the whole rest of her life, that's not sad?

BAH! You have no romance in your soul. :P

I do, too, have romance in my soul. And Kara would never stand for that (Elizabeth wouldn't, either, but she has more of a life than Kara does).

Kara, however, should totally be pirate king.

Besides, knowing Elizabeth, she's been researching how to get him back without him being dead.

Then you're saying she's figuring out ways to break the curse, because it sucks. Which is my point. If there's NO WAY to break it, then it's tragic and unfair to both of them. Moreso for Will, since she can do whatever she wants, but he's stuck with a duty and immortality he never even wanted. But then, I've never found the prospect of immortality very appealing, so I don't find it a fair trade.

I've read some spec about how they can communicate, and someone suggested hilariously that she should start a charter boat service, tell people her message for Will and then throw them overboard for him to pick up. "Elizabeth Turner's Sunset Cruises". hee. I think she could do it, too.

I don't think Elizabeth's passive enough to stand by, no. God, someone in there said something about Destiny at some point, and it made me think of Kara. And to wonder why I'm accepting in almost everything else. Because Elizabeth and Will having this Destiny thing doesn't bother me--maybe because I think she'll figure out how to break the curse.

*snickers* She's not that far gone to Jack's side, yet, I don't think.

Give her another ten years of no sex. ;)
