The transcript from Daniel Garrett's radio interview for BBC Wiltshire, has been floating the net almost a day now and I haven't heard any of you gals going *sqeee* yet. Come on, join me, I know you want to! Let me hear you, loud and clear:

ok, enough, read now!

Daniel Garrett: The last question is for you, Michael. What do you think of the fan fiction out there? Have you read any of it? Do you know of anyone within the cast or crew who has looked at it?
MS: Um... . I do know that the writers and the producers do know about fan fiction. I don't choose to dwell in that universe. I live with this character 24/7 as it is. It's very difficult to, you know... the idea of logging in and finding out what the characters -- what other people perceive as the characters' off-camera life are like. I don't choose to watch it. I've heard about certain kinds of fan fiction that are both risque and somewhat, um, just plain wrong. So I haven't read it but I do know that as long as it keeps the fans happy, that's what the most important.
DG: Are you referring to stuff between you and Richard Dean Anderson's characters?
MS: THAT's exactly to what I was referring to. Odd that you mention that.
CJ: What's 'plain wrong' about that? It's very natural.

Love ya, love ya, LOVE YA BIG GUY! ::g::

MS: Some people perceive it as very natural and, uh, Rick and I... we have a running joke on set about that as well and so to actually have people pick up on that is even more disturbing than the jokes that we make, so I think it is very funny and whatever floats your boat.
DG: So you play on it a bit?
MS: A little bit, but, not as much as the fans would like.

::looks around:: Is it me or is Michael trying to take back previous semi-positive comments about slash as subtly as possible? For crying out loud, this is the 2nd uncalled for reference in two days! (the other was in that fiasco the mods at Wolf Events forum called a celebrity chat ::rolls eyes::) But then I have to say it's so obvious his heart isn't really in it. He stuck his foot in his mouth when he used the phrase "pick up on that" and he swallowed the damn thing by admitting they do play on it!

See?! See?! The attraction is theeeeeere! We are not making it up!
::runs around in circles::

I've read similar things like this before, Michael may not be into slash but the fact that they acknowledge it's existence and the fact that that acknowledgement comes across on screen is good enough for me!

Thing is, as much as I am the down-to-earth fan who knows that slash is and will be a guilty pleasure for the few, I can't help notice that our beloved Mr. Shanks talks about slash in public more often than I do to my RL friends! who love me and are trying desperately to put up with my obsession for the past 6 years but have threatened me with bodily harm if I don't shut up already... So forgive me if I bask in my delusions for a while longer; for the sake of my sanity, I need to be a fangirl this weekend. ::g::

I'm sorry if I missed any of your private messages in the chat! I replied to the first one or two, but then I missed so much and couldn't catch up!

I adore Michael, even when he has his foot in his mouth. =D

Awwww, precious! ::hug:: Don't worry, I totally understand. I'm not used at all to web-based chatrooms so be sure I lost count waaaay before you did. At some point, I was so frustrated I almost left. But I didn't. Not only it was my first celebrity chat, it was also my only consolation since due to work I missed the opportunity to be in Glasgow today! ::sobs:: I would had seen both of them in person... ::wails:: Oh hell, the way work is going, a virtual room is the closest I'll ever get to them. =\

Now that I'm thinking of it, I asked you or Ash smthing just before the server crashed: do you ever get together in a chatroom? I'd love to see you all together even once! ^__^;;
Ash: SG - Daniel/Jonas (together) ~by me~ashism on January 30th, 2004 05:46 pm (UTC)
We're mad crazy all together y'know ;) you sure you want to let yourself in for that? ::g::
Ishi-No Kokoro: jack: paws off!queenofstars on January 30th, 2004 05:49 pm (UTC)
It will be hard for me to keep up, being greek and all that jazz, but I'd love to try! ::g::
ningyouhime on January 30th, 2004 05:56 pm (UTC)
Do you have AOL-IM?
Ishi-No Kokoro: j/d don't walk away (base by enigel)queenofstars on January 30th, 2004 08:21 pm (UTC)
I have icq, y!m, msn and irc but no aol!im. o_O;; To tell you the truth tho, however tempting a chat with all of you sounds, I don't think I have the energy to do it right now. Just got home after working for 19 hours straight In front of a screen --I was posting from work--, it's 6 in the frigging morning here in Athens --damn hour difference-- and nel_ani, if you're reading this, now you know why I usually fall asleep instead of answering comments... ::yawn::
I hope that's a raincheck I'm signing and not the rights to my unborn... ;O)
Ash: SG - Threesome kink! ~by me~ashism on January 30th, 2004 08:43 pm (UTC)
Raincheck! Well if you ever get AIM give us a bell and we can all chat sometime!
Ishi-No Kokoro: jack: thank you godqueenofstars on January 30th, 2004 05:46 pm (UTC)
everytime i see this icon all i can think is "if that's what he looks like after a handjob, he'll sure spring a face muscle when jack gets down on him ::giggle::
Dev Basaa: fake-comfortcolorfulshadows on January 30th, 2004 05:32 pm (UTC)
Wow! That's far more acknowledgement than most slash fandoms get -- that's awesome!

Ishi-No Kokoro: daniel paws off! (by lucid_mirage)queenofstars on January 30th, 2004 08:24 pm (UTC)
::nod:: That's part of the appeal Stargate has for me. Where in Star Wars we were merely speculating George was deliberately taunting us with subtext, these guys admit yanking our chains to our faces. ::g:: And to think I tried to avoid this fandom ::shakes head::
