Long time no chat... And fic!  

*taps the mic* Is this thing on? Erm, hello? I think I'm probably posting to the void but intense nostalgia rather forced my hand... SGA was the fandom that drove me to LJ and to posting my fic, and many years ago welovezelenka comm used to be one of my regular haunts. I assume most people have moved on, likely even left LJ, by now. However, I recently returned to my roots for the last hurrah of sga_santa and wrote a McKay/Zelenka story, my first for years and years. Doing so brought back many great memories about chatting to other Zelenka fans in the hayday of the fandom. So I thought that in the off chance that someone is still watching the comm I ought to pop over to say hello and to link to the fic in question... Seriously, if anyone is still around do say hi!

Hi. Hugs and all. This has got me thinking about doing some more SGA fic.

Hello! Yes, it's made me very nostalgic for SGA rare pairs. I may have to dig out some old favourites to re-read. And maybe resurrect SGA as fandom to do random drabbles in... :D

I didn't realize I missed R/R until reading this. I wrote something similar for UNCLE fandom quite awhile ago, with Illya missing Russia's winters. It makes a beautiful setting.

Hah, I didn't know how much I missed them until I started writing and then it was like RADEK BABY THERE YOU ARE! :D

Winter and snow have special magic so I'm not at all surprised to find that they have inspired you too :)

Hi! Also: YAY! :-D

Hello! *waves enthusiastically* Look at all the Radek fans coming out of the woodwork :D

Some fandoms (and characters) are just sheer immortal, even after a several-year-long hiatus, aren"t they?
I keep watching re-runs on both German and Hungarian TV, even though I own the entire series on DVD, in original Enlish. Somehow watching it live is different, I don't know why.

And now I have the urge to continue with my various Atlantis crossover series. If only RL and increasing age would allow me more spare time...

Aww yeah it does seem like it. And yeah, whenever I stumble across SGA repeats on TV I get caught and end up watching rest of the episode.

Writing SGA after such a long break was weird but good too, getting into Zelenka's character was surprisingly easy :D
