Reason #58 why I love my fandom.

So the other day I was in the car with my little sister talking about some of the crack-y fics I've read.

Sister: I think my favourite crack fic you told me about is that one when Rodney gets that planet to think of him as a god, and they had him on their flag and everything.

Me: Ummm, that wasn't a fic. Actually, that was canon.

What other fandom can you mistake canon for a crack fic?

Speaking of fic, eons ago I went to see "I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry" and I couldn't help thinking at the time, that even though it was kinda a bad movie, it would be a lot of fun to see it turned into a McShep fic. Except you know, at the end they'd have to realize that they really *are* gay for each other. And live happily ever after.

Pure Canadian Crack

I can't count how many times in the past week or so I've stated that I'm not a writer. That I'm horrible at writing, that no one would want to read what I have to write, etc. So I find it kind of amusing that I choose this week to actually try writing a fanfic.

I've been thinking lately about what, in fic, annoys me personally, and one of the answers was writers who get Canada really wrong. It really shouldn't bother me, since for the most part, author's do a great job of writing about Canada. What gets me more is when people think Canada is a lot more foreign (in respect to the US) than it really is. Like sometimes they'll have Rodney say things that I've *never* heard another Canadian say. It sounds more British, or Australian, or sometimes even make believe than like a Canadian accent. Or when people assume he speaks French. I recently went on a vacation to Florida, and when my sister told our tour guide that she was a French teacher, he said something like "Well isn't that your main language up there?" Unless you live in Quebec, New Brunswick, or just tried really hard in school, chances are you don't speak more than a little bit of French. I mean I grew up in *Ottawa* and I don't speak French passably.

Anyways these thoughts somehow turned into fic thoughts. )

I don't know if I'll ever finish writing this, or if I'll ever post it if I *do*, but I'm having far too much fun thinking about it. Can anyone else think of some stereotypes I'm missing that should be added? Or that will make me smile as I think about this :)
Oh, I think I might *have* to add something about Stephen Harper's hair, just for [info]sunshineandrage even though she's not in the SGA fandom (although she totally *should* be, although I think everyone should be :P) Also, I need an "I love Canada" icon or something.
