I’ve finally finished reading the 8 book series Stargate Atlantis: Legacy, chronicling the events taking place after the series finale “Enemy At The Gate”.  The eight books are just as good as everyone has been saying they are! In many ways I think they surpass the tv series itself, going in depth into issues that interest me such as Teyla’s Wraith inheritance and the Wraith society and the retrovirus and what it means to be Wraith. I also loved that Ronon got to do stuff he never got to do on the series and be more than just the muscle. I’ve never been fan of Sheppard or McKay, so I was happy to find that other characters get a lot screentime as well, such as Zelenka, more so than in the series IMHO.

Also read The Lost Queen, by one of the authors of Legacy and takes place in that same universe, which was all about the mystery of a disappeared Wraith Queen and even though Sheppard etc. are there too, it was all from the point of view of the Wraith.

A word of caution – I suggest getting all the books before starting, and definitely read them in order – most of them end in a middle of a story, and you’ll be left hanging if you don’t have the next one ready to go! Indeed, I thought that first five or so books would’ve worked even better as a one book instead of five.

These are probably the best tv tie-ins I’ve read since the Star Trek novels published in 1970s through mid-1990s, and I enjoyed them very much. I’ll definitely be checking out these authors’ other Stargate books as well!

I still get regular questions/requests to finish my Stargate: Atlantis Bluray capping. I recently re-watched the series for I think, 5th time since its cancellation and I do love that world and the Wraith. And for the first time ever, Sheppard and McKay didn’t annoy me anymore – I guess enough time has finally passed, and I know the stories so well now that things-I-don’t-like-so-much couldn’t really irritate me anymore. It is what it is, and looks like am finally able to enjoy it for what it is instead of hoping for what I wanted it to be. And I do want to cap the show every time I watch it, so…

I don’t have the Stargate caps site anymore (I’m not even sure if it’s still online, haven’t checked after flaunt bought it from me), so I’m uploading these to my general gallery. Bluray screencaps from season 1 episodes 1-10 are up now, and more will be following.

Here are the few icons I’ve made since my last icon post. 1-2 and 15 were made for iconsomething @ Livejournal back in February, I think. I’m very happy with them. Also really like how the McQueen and Damphousse icons turned out (3, 6-8). The Mummy Returns icons were made for a forum, and they don’t adhere to LJ requirements because of that.

Total Icon Count: 15

It’s 1am and I’m up. Again. I can’t sleep.  This has been going on since about mid-week last week 🙁 At first I couldn’t sleep at all, but the last two nights it got a little better – I still had bitch of a time falling asleep, but once I did – after getting up a couple of times and after rolling around for hours – I slept okay …ish.
