About You
1. Your name: Heather
2. Your birth month: May
3. What is your general professional or educational area? Mental Health
4. How many pets do you have: ZERO and thank the gods!
5. When did you join LJ and why? BSG led me here 18 months ago and I never left
6. What do you do on LJ? Read fic, write, vid, etc. Write, read fic, icon, run comms, a little of everything except vid. Someday...
7. What is your top fandom interest right now? PILOTS FOREVER
8. When was the last time you watched an episode of BSG? What was it? Last night I watched Hand of God and saw a little something I hadn't seen before. It was one of those moments where Lee is looking at Kara while the focus is on others. It's right when Adama begins to talk about hitting the bully in a sensitive spot. Made me squee so hard!!!

Pilots Who Frak:
1. How many times did pilots frak on NC? At least twice, but they were drunk and snuggly and sleeping was a yummy thing.
2. When should they have frakked? What would have been the perfect time to declare piloty lustfulness? For Lee? For Kara? Colonial Day when they were still on fairly even emotional footing (aside from the Zak stuff). Before Anders and the jealousy crap. Oh pilots!
3. What's Lee's favorite position? Why? I think he'd like them all because it's Kara, but I'm guessing he'd like her on top because he'd get an unfettered view. I think he's totally fascinated with her face and breasts, so it's WIN/WIN. RIGHT??
4. Is Kara's favorite position always on top? I think she enjoys that, but I also think she'd love to lie back and enjoy. :D
5. Would Kara get bored with regular fraks and push Lee to do something else? If so what would it be? Would Lee ever be kinky on his own? My guess is that Kara would really enjoy some orgasm denial (denying Lee) and Lee probably would be very happy with some sexy lingerie.

Kara "Out of the box" Thrace
1. Which of Kara's traits most gets in the way of pilots? Fear and poor self-esteem
2. What about her makes pilots work? Her passion and spirit
3. What is she like in a real committed relationship? Loyal, super fun, sexy as hell
4. If you could change one thing about her, what would it be? Make her believe in her own worthiness
5. What did she need from Lee? More validation
6. Why did she love him? Because he grounds her and, if he'd ever have admitted it, because he believes in her. It took until Islanded for him to finally admit what he knew all along. :(

Lee "Shout it to the stars" Adama
1. Which of Lee's traits most gets in the way of pilots? His inability to express his feelings about her, fear, trying always to do the right thing instead of the thing he wants to do.
2. What about him makes pilots work? His steadiness, his ability to let her be herself (for the most part), his patience
3. What is he like in a real committed relationship? I think he'd be the workhorse! Keeping things together so Kara could do her magical amazing things.
4. If you could change one thing about him, what would it be? I'd make him less afraid to tell her how he feels
5. What did he need from Kara? He needed her to stay
6. Why did he love her? Because she's his other half - makes him feel alive, challenges him, pushes him to let go and live

What would pilots have to do to make a real relationship work? TALK

Anything else you'd like to add? I LOVE PILOTS!

This made me laugh out loud, cause, ya know, it's true... LOLOL!

2. When should they have frakked? Ummm…Scar, Colonial Day, Many other times What would have been the perfect time to declare piloty lustfulness? Every frakking episode For Lee? Definitely on Colonial day or at least when she came back to the fleet. Also, before she went to rescue Sam, also SCAR For Kara? 
she should have talked to him after she shot him

She definitely should have talked to him after the shooting. That makes me so sad to think about her skulking by afraid to face him. Poor woobie Kara. Go in there girl, he's not mad at you!

Oh, and also, I agree about the rough kink. I think he has a lot of anger in him and that she's obviously got some, too. They're both very physical people, so getting rough and tumble seems right.

About You
1. Your name: Tara
2. Your birth month: October
3. What is your general professional or educational area? Publishing
4. How many pets do you have: None sadly (would love a dog, or 2!)
5. When did you join LJ and why? January of 2007 because a friend enocuraged me to start writing again and "become the next Perez Hilton" and blogging seemed like a good way to get back into it
6. What do you do on LJ? Read fic, write, vid, etc. Everything.
7. What is your top fandom interest right now? Pilots
8. When was the last time you watched an episode of BSG? What was it? I watched Oath/Blood on the Scales with all you lovely fangirls last week.

Pilots Who Frak:
1. How many times did pilots frak on NC? As many as they could. ;)
2. When should they have frakked? What would have been the perfect time to declare piloty lustfulness? For Lee? For Kara? EVERY DAY. Hee. Actually I think somewhere between Home and Flight of the Phoenix
3. What's Lee's favorite position? Why? He doesn't have a favorite position, but his favorite part is after, when Kara's loose-limbed and languid and drapes herself over him and lets him hold her.
4. Is Kara's favorite position always on top? She'll say it is, even to Lee, but secretly she likes the weight of him pinning her down. Most people would find it incongruous, knowing her love of flying, but it's true.
5. Would Kara get bored with regular fraks and push Lee to do something else? If so what would it be? Would Lee ever be kinky on his own? They never get bored, because they'd both use their flair for quick thinking and ingenuity.

Kara "Out of the box" Thrace
1. Which of Kara's traits most gets in the way of pilots? Guilt and fear
2. What about her makes pilots work? She needs his love/his approval, even though she tries to deny, so she always comes back. Lee's her touchstone.
3. What is she like in a real committed relationship? Passionate, determined, and surprisingly, a little bit sappy
4. If you could change one thing about her, what would it be? I'd want her to trust her heart.
5. What did she need from Lee? Assurance that his love was unconditional.
6. Why did she love him? She didn't have a choice. :) (But I think also she admires the person that he is, even though or maybe because she's so different from him. And also because he puts his faith in her, even when he shouldn't.)

Lee "Shout it to the stars" Adama
1. Which of Lee's traits most gets in the way of pilots? Stubbornness and Judgmentalness (is that a word? hee)
2. What about him makes pilots work? His stalwart underlying belief in Kara (even when he expresses the opposite)
3. What is he like in a real committed relationship? Reliable, the caretaker, and much more easygoing than otherwise
4. If you could change one thing about him, what would it be? Fear and his tendency to lash out hard when he's hurting
5. What did he need from Kara? Assurance that she loved him best of all.
6. Why did he love her? He had no choice. :) (But he loved her spirit and her passion and admired her for all the ways she wasn't like him. Similar to Kara... Cheesy as it is, they ground each other and complete each other.)

What would pilots have to do to make a real relationship work? Therapy ;) Learn to love themselves so they could love each other

Anything else you'd like to add? Pilots are forever. <3

Yes! These are perfect. *sigh* Lee would love the frakking, but he'd totally be about the snuggles afterwards. What a happy thought! I think the idea of her liking him pinning her down is about her feeling grounded and safe - at least how I'd see it. Lovely thoughts...

2. When should they have frakked? What would have been the perfect time to declare piloty lustfulness? For Lee? For Kara? Honestly I don’t have a problem with their romantic arc until the Quad of Doom, but if I had to pick something before that it would be after Lee comes back in Hand Of God.

*cries* All of these. Damnit, Lee. Why couldn't you get out of your own frakking way. I feel like he had so much power to make it happen, but he didn't. It really makes me agree with Lynn's comments above about having the balls to just come out and get what he wanted.

PILOTS WHY DO YOU DO THIS TO ME??????????

Apr. 19th, 2011 04:05 pm (UTC)
Okay, I may not answer all of these but I'll do my best...

About You
1. Your name: liz
2. Your birth month: February
3. What is your general professional or educational area? vet med
4. How many pets do you have: 4 cats (does anybody want one? They're lovely...just a lot of them!)
5. When did you join LJ and why? 2008 I think...not sure exactly, but that's when I started lurking on skiffy and LJ
6. What do you do on LJ? Read fic, write, vid, etc.: try to keep up w/ friends, play on the various bsg comms
7. What is your top fandom interest right now? bsg...the one and only fandom
8. When was the last time you watched an episode of BSG? What was it? I watched Razor about a week ago.

Pilots Who Frak:
1. How many times did pilots frak on NC? I dunno...honestly, I wish they had talked more. The frakking could've come later.
2. When should they have frakked? What would have been the perfect time to declare piloty lustfulness? For Lee? For Kara? Um, hello? The mini!! More pilots for us that way.
3. What's Lee's favorite position? Why? I think it varies depending on his mood.
4. Is Kara's favorite position always on top? NO!! And this concept in fandom irks me. Give her a break...everyone needs time to relax and not be in control of everything.
5. Would Kara get bored with regular fraks and push Lee to do something else? If so what would it be? Would Lee ever be kinky on his own? K...not bored, just curious about other possibilities. L...yes, he is already kinky...it's the quiet ones you gotta watch for. ;)

Kara "Out of the box" Thrace
1. Which of Kara's traits most gets in the way of pilots? fear of abandonment/trust issues
2. What about her makes pilots work? she's Kara Thrace! (helpful answer, huh?)
3. What is she like (or would she be like) in a real committed relationship? Depends how much she trusts the person and how much she really loves and respects him/her as more than just an easy catch. Key to any successful committed relationship for Kara is that she'd have to be able to be herself...so she'd be a lot like she is already, just with less fear and more ability to trust it'll be okay.
4. If you could change one thing about her, what would it be? I wouldn't change her...she's beautiful just the way she is.
5. What did she need from Lee? Lee gave her all she needed. What she needed was from herself...the strength to trust him consistently.
6. Why did she love him? He's the only one that understands her...I mean, really gets her, in a way no one else does. Also he's an equal in a world where not many can stand toe-to-toe with Starbuck and survive...he knows when to push her and when to offer support.

Lee "Shout it to the stars" Adama
1. Which of Lee's traits most gets in the way of pilots? Not sure. I have a theory that the Kara people see how Kara gets in the way of pilots and Lee people see how Lee gets in the way. I don't know...it's hard b/c I guess he could've tried talking more but that's a fine line b/c you can't push Kara. Maybe think less and just go with his gut??
2. What about him makes pilots work? Everything...he's the only one that can take care of Kara without getting pushed away.
3. What is he like (or would he be like) in a real committed relationship? He'd be there, which is the most important. He'd hold Kara accountable as he already does but he'd love her and support her too. He'd have to be patient with Kara's crazy...and realize that even when she drives him crazy, she appreciates his patience and steadfast devotion.
4. If you could change one thing about him, what would it be? As with Kara, I'm not into changing people. He's lovely just the way he is.
5. What did he need from Kara? Not sure? More trust...more consistency. But really he just needed her.
6. Why did he love her? Um, b/c they're soulmates. She's a challenge...but a lovable, brilliant challenge. She's Kara Thrace...everyone loves her, except sometimes she doesn't believe or share that self-love.

Apparently I'm too wordy...and LJ is just now realizing this??

What would pilots have to do to make a real relationship work?
I dunno if I'm the most qualified to answer this one. Maybe read some fanfic and realize they both love each other and stop letting fear get in the way.

Anything else you'd like to add?
I don't even know if I believe in monogamy anymore. And fandom is crazy...there's no way to follow it all. But...I will always love Kara and Lee and all you friends and fellow shippers...and when I'm not as active, it's not because I don't love you guys or don't love K/L, it's just the rest of life invading my time.

About You
1. Your name: Rachel
2. Your birth month: January (brrrr!)
5. When did you join LJ and why? About a year ago, I guess, and specifically to comment on this comm. You all pulled me in :) Before that I was just putting up a few things on fanfiction.net.
6. What do you do on LJ? Read fic, write, vid, etc. Read, write a bit, leave talky comments on character comms, watch vids and then feel guilty and then buy the songs so I can support the artists *and* watch the beautiful vids as many times as I want
7. What is your top fandom interest right now? On the reading/watching front, it's Sherlock BBC, but on the community/participating front it's still pilots by a mile. I keep my hand in a bunch of fandoms in the lurker sense. I am wide, I contain multitudes :)
8. When was the last time you watched an episode of BSG? What was it? Oh, I can't remember. Months ago. I watch scenes more often than episodes.

Alternate Universes
1. Name one moment in canon, that if changed, could have yielded a happy ending?: I'd have liked to have seen something serious grow between them when she came back from the dead in Season 4-4.5.
2. Put Kara/Lee in another compelling setting - what could have kept them apart? They can always mess it up if they choose. It's about them, not their circumstances.
3. Could Kara be your BFF? I love her and I adore watching and reading about her, but in real life she would make me nuts and I would bore her to tears.
4. Would Lee actually make a good partner FOR YOU? No. In real life I don't think I would get involved with a man who had a history of cheating on or running out on his previous partners, whether or not he said he loved me. Also, I can't imagine being married to someone in the military and dealing with the stresses of that life, but maybe Lee wouldn't stay in the military in real life.
5. What if Zak hadn't died? Would Kara have still married him given what happened on the table? I prefer to ignore the table and imagine the relationship with Zak that we saw in "Act of Contrition," which was clearly messed up and less than honest, but also a breathless, naive, youthful love story. Yes, she would have married him.

Kara "Out of the box" Thrace
1. Which of Kara's traits most gets in the way of pilots? Her image of herself as destructive and her tendency to try to protect herself by choosing "easy" relationships where she has the power and can fall into hurtful habits and remind herself that she's a screw-up.
2. What about her makes pilots work? Her fire, her courage, her playfulness, her honesty, her deep heart and the way she loves Lee for who he really is
3. What is she like in a real committed relationship? Unique and amazing.
4. If you could change one thing about her, what would it be? I would ask her to try harder to change the things she doesn't like about herself, rather than believing she can't escape them.
5. What did she need from Lee? Trust.
6. Why did she love him? He was her equal.

1. Which of Lee's traits most gets in the way of pilots? The other commitments he fills his life with, many of which are very poorly thought out.
2. What about him makes pilots work? His independent spirit, his intelligence, his striving to be true to himself, his willingness to ask of Kara all that she is capable of
3. What is he like in a real committed relationship? Unique and amazing.
4. If you could change one thing about him, what would it be? I would ask him to be more honest about his feelings, to be able to say - to Kara, to Dee, to his father - both what he really wants and what he is not ready to do or feel or accept.
5. What did he need from Kara? Commitment.
6. Why did he love her? She understands him, and she sets him free.

I agree with all of this, but this in particular stood out for me:


1. Which of Lee's traits most gets in the way of pilots? The other commitments he fills his life with, many of which are very poorly thought out.


He really did let other, maybe less important things get in the way. In many respects, I think was easier to do the expected thing than to do what was right for him. That way of thinking was second hand to him. That's why Kara was so great for him - she always challenged him in ways that others never did.

PS: I am so happy we dragged you into fandom. Wouldn't be the same without you.

Re: Epic comment is epic, part 1
1. How many times did pilots frak on NC? I'm going to be a rebel and say that they kept going like bunnies until they were both so exhausted that they dozed off just before dawn. LOTS OF TIMES! Look at how Lee's walking, all worn out and tired.

HA! Now that you mention it... hahahah! Very funny!

3. What is he like (or would he be like) in a real committed relationship? Well, with Kara he never got a chance to be in that relationship (grrr!) I think he'd be really open and sweet and wholehearted about it (and smile a lot more) but he also wouldn't automatically do everything she wanted him to. I think they'd argue and then have wonderful make-up sex :P

This made me smile a lot. <3 Love to think about it.

I was JUST thinking that I would love a getting to know you post since I am new to the comm and the fandom! *high fives you*

About You
1. Your name: Jill
2. Your birth month: July
3. What is your general professional or educational area?: Used to be an actress, now I'm wading into the non-profit world.
4. How many pets do you have: One amazing dog named Albus Severus
5. When did you join LJ and why?: About 3 years ago (WOW, that long?) I co-produced a feature film that completely exhausted me and knocked me out emotionally. So I retreated to my happy place of fandom and finally joined LJ.
6. What do you do on LJ? Read fic, write, vid, etc.: Read, write, play
7. What is your top fandom interest right now?: I'm relatively into The Hunger Games and Community, but not overly into anything right now.
8. When was the last time you watched an episode of BSG? What was it?: I finished watching the entire series for the first time about 6 weeks ago. I have ~feeeeeeeeeeeeeelings about the finale.

Pilots Who Frak:
1. How many times did pilots frak on NC?: LMAO. I think just the one time.
2. When should they have frakked? What would have been the perfect time to declare piloty lustfulness? For Lee? For Kara?: They obviously should have frakked a billion more times. At least once per episode, except for those episodes when they were far away from each other. And even then they should have had comm sex...
3. What's Lee's favorite position? Why?: Missionary lol.
4. Is Kara's favorite position always on top? Kara likes to change it up a lot during sexytimes.
5. Would Kara get bored with regular fraks and push Lee to do something else? If so what would it be? Would Lee ever be kinky on his own?: Kara would be adventurous and would push Lee to do crazy things. Then one day Lee would try and prove that he could be crazy too and it would be so awkward and so filled with TRYING TOO HARD but Kara would find it endearing lol.

Kara "Out of the box" Thrace
1. Which of Kara's traits most gets in the way of pilots?: She pushes people away.
2. What about her makes pilots work?: She only lets very few people see who she really is. So when you *see* her, it's special.
3. What is she like (or would she be like) in a real committed relationship?: That is so hard to tell. I mean, obviously she was in one with Zak, but it's hard to picture. She would still have that wild and crazy streak and she would pick fights just so they could make up.
4. If you could change one thing about her, what would it be?: Nada. Except for when she became a pigeon.
5. What did she need from Lee?: His steadiness and his honor. I think he calms her and grounds her.
6. Why did she love him?: Because she just did. Because sometimes you can't define it. Because he was her best friend.

Lee "Shout it to the stars" Adama
1. Which of Lee's traits most gets in the way of pilots?: WHY YOU NO CHEAT ON DEE, LEE?
2. What about him makes pilots work?: He's so madly in love with Kara it's not even funny.
3. What is he like (or would he be like) in a real committed relationship?: He'd be a really good husband/dad. No doubt about it.
4. If you could change one thing about him, what would it be?: Nothing.
5. What did he need from Kara?: Her fire and her fun and her passionate messiness.
6. Why did he love her?: He just did. He was so crazy in love with her from almost the beginning.

What would pilots have to do to make a real relationship work?: Get over their own shit, not be stuck in space fighting a war, learn to trust each other...the list goes on LOL...

Anything else you'd like to add?

About You
1. Your name: dannica
2. Your birth month: december
3. What is your general professional or educational area? i have degrees in religious studies, but i'm a web designer/artist/social justice worker by trade.
4. How many pets do you have: none
5. When did you join LJ and why? fandom stuff!
6. What do you do on LJ? read fic, write fic, vid, keep up with fandom friends.
7. What is your top fandom interest right now? bsg! i'm relatively new though (just finishing up the fourth season for the first time). i'm also big into ncis and criminal minds, among others.
8. When was the last time you watched an episode of BSG? What was it? two hours ago. it was "a disquiet follows my soul."

Pilots Who Frak:
1. How many times did pilots frak on NC? at least twice.
2. When should they have frakked? What would have been the perfect time to declare piloty lustfulness? For Lee? For Kara? THE ENTIRE FIRST SEASON. and also post caprica & post new caprica & post desert planet comfort/OMG YOU'RE ALIVE SQUEE sex.
3. What's Lee's favorite position? Why? he likes kara on top. do we really need an explanation?
4. Is Kara's favorite position always on top? it's a rather well-kept secret that kara has a soft spot for missionary.
5. Would Kara get bored with regular fraks and push Lee to do something else? If so what would it be? Would Lee ever be kinky on his own? i think she could talk him into kink...maybe as a way to help her learn to be comfortable giving up control, if only for a little while. oh the emotional angsty smutsy possibilities!

Kara "Out of the box" Thrace
1. Which of Kara's traits most gets in the way of pilots? lack of self esteem/the fact that she's convinced she's a screwup, and that she finds it impossible to trust people. she comes close with lee & the old man but even they sometimes confirm her belief that everyone will leave/betray/hurt her.
2. What about her makes pilots work? her faith. her loyalty to lee. her spirit and passion and the fact that they fit together and make a perfect team, whether they're frakking, keeping the rest of the pilots together, or killing toasters.
3. What is she like (or would she be like) in a real committed relationship? i think she'd be secure, funny, sexy, and passionate. if she felt confident in her relationship with lee, like she could be herself with him no matter what, we'd see a whole different side of her, i think. maybe more like the garden hose scene. :)
4. If you could change one thing about her, what would it be? her insecurity with lee. partly that's something that he needed to work on letting her know, but she also needed to connect the dots - i mean, he believed her even when no one else did.
5. What did she need from Lee? unconditional trust.
6. Why did she love him? because he completed her and he was her best friend.

Lee "Shout it to the stars" Adama
1. Which of Lee's traits most gets in the way of pilots? he's too godsdamned honorable and always trying to do the right thing.
2. What about him makes pilots work? he's too godsdamned honorable ;)
3. What is he like (or would he be like) in a real committed relationship? he would be the rock, the reliable, consistent one. but i think kara would be able to get him to unwind a bit too :)
4. If you could change one thing about him, what would it be? the way he always seems to put other things in front of kara, and sometimes doesn't understand when she needs him - like after new caprica.
5. What did he need from Kara? commitment.
6. Why did he love her? she completes him. she knows what he's thinking before he does, sometimes. when they fly together or even when they're just working together it's like they're an extension of each other.

What would pilots have to do to make a real relationship work? COMMUNICATE. and have lots of sex. but COMMUNICATING BETWEEN THE SEXYTIEMZ.

Part I (Sorry if I messed up some stuff, still only on second watchthrough)
About You
1. Your name: Elizabeth (pic of me in my icon)
2. Your birth month: November
3. What is your general professional or educational area? I work at The University of Kent all over the place as part of their Temp Bank (works like an Agency, but means the Uni don't have to pay Agency prices and all the temps know the University's systems and foibles).
4. How many pets do you have: Two - a pair of very lovely gerbils :)
5. When did you join LJ and why? In Autumn 2002 when I was at Uni, because all my friends were on here :)
6. What do you do on LJ? Read fic, write, vid, etc. I frequent ontd_p, write fic (usually the Chalet School, if any of you have heard of that), angst about stuff (it is LJ, after all :)), write helpful user guides to stuff :)
7. What is your top fandom interest right now? Probably BSG, because I pretty much mainlined it over the course of a month during February and early March, leaving me with a bit of an obsession... Ongoing is my Chalet School interest, which is kind of a comfort thing.
8. When was the last time you watched an episode of BSG? What was it? This morning. It was The Farm :)

Pilots Who Frak:
1. How many times did pilots frak on NC? Well there was the time in the "house" that we know about, but I like to think it happened before, between the finding of NC and the groundbreaking :)
2. When should they have frakked? What would have been the perfect time to declare piloty lustfulness? For Lee? For Kara? In the shower during Final Cut (just before the cameras come into the bunk room). In the Phoenix after the events of Flight of the Phoenix. In Daybreak, instead of the *poof*.
3. What's Lee's favorite position? Why? Not sure why, but spooning springs to mind. I think, especially after the events of s3, he would like to spend time just holding her... and if that evolved into sex (or evolved from sex) all the better :)
4. Is Kara's favorite position always on top? I don't think so, because I think sometimes she would actually like to surrender, and be completely out of control.
5. Would Kara get bored with regular fraks and push Lee to do something else? If so what would it be? Would Lee ever be kinky on his own? On a raptor, in space, with the artificial gravity turned off. I think Lee would be kinky on his own. It's the only way he could be so buttoned up and by the book all the rest of the time ;)

Part II (Sorry if I messed up some stuff, still only on second watchthrough)
Kara "Out of the box" Thrace
1. Which of Kara's traits most gets in the way of pilots? I think the way she always seems to run away (gets scared off?) at the moment of happiness and complete commitment to the person she really wants. It was the thing I felt most as I watched the series for the first time.
2. What about her makes pilots work? Her loyalty to, and trust in the Adamas in general, and Lee in particular in this case. It is always Lee she goes back to, and her trust in him enables her to be emotionally vulnerable with him (see Scar and Maelstrom) in a way that I don't think I've noticed with anyone else.
3. What is she like (or would she be like) in a real committed relationship? I think she would probably be quite difficult in the beginning in a take-me-take-my-neuroses kind of way, but as she came to realise that he loved her unconditionally - and would continue to do so - relax and actually become very happy, and probably more laid back in her personal life than she usually was in the series.
4. If you could change one thing about her, what would it be? My initial response would be "nothing", because if we changed things she would no longer be Kara</strong>. However, if pushed, I would probably say I would change the way she reacted to their night together on NC. Instead of running off and marrying Sam first thing, I'd like her to stick around and give a relationship with Lee a real go. Or possibly, change her willingness to go into the Maelstrom at the end of that episode and instead have her trust her initial instincts to stay on Galactica & not be persuaded by Lee to go out again.
5. What did she need from Lee? I'm not sure what it is she needed that she didn't already have from him. He clearly loved her always and unconditionally. He only tended to push her away when she hurt him (KLG, NC) and even then he always came back.
6. Why did she love him? Because I think in Lee she sensed something of a kindred spirit. Someone who did not always belong in the role in which he'd found himself, who had had a difficult childhood and someone who would be loyal almost to a fault.

About You
1. Your name: Kelsey
2. Your birth month: April ;)
3. What is your general professional or educational area? I work at a preschool, because what DO you do with a BA in English?
4. How many pets do you have: I have a goldfish named Bait and a part-time cat.
5. When did you join LJ and why? 2004. I transitioned over from a message board with a bunch of other people.
6. What do you do on LJ? Read, write, socially interact.
7. What is your top fandom interest right now? BSG. And I JUST finished Horatio Hornblower which is giving me A LOT of feelings.
8. When was the last time you watched an episode of BSG? What was it? Thursday, here, "The Oath".

Pilots Who Frak:
1. How many times did pilots frak on NC? I always assumed it was once, but twice seems plausible as well.
2. When should they have frakked? What would have been the perfect time to declare piloty lustfulness? Always. I can see them getting together as early as Act of Contrition/YCGHA or Colonial Day or definitely the Home arc.
3. What's Lee's favorite position? Why? I don't think he's all that picky.
4. Is Kara's favorite position always on top? I've always seen that as a little bit of a control thing, her making a point of not being "the girl". Obviously she doesn't hate it, but I think she probably gets a little thrill out of having someone she who loves her and she trusts over her.
5. Would Kara get bored with regular fraks and push Lee to do something else? If so what would it be? Would Lee ever be kinky on his own? I think they'd probably be pretty in sync and try things together spontaneously.

Kara "Out of the box" Thrace
1. Which of Kara's traits most gets in the way of pilots? Her belief that she's worthless/poisonous to the people around her.
2. What about her makes pilots work? Her passion and spontaneity.
3. What is she like (or would she be like) in a real committed relationship? A little calmer, a little steadier, a little sweeter, but still fundamentally herself.
4. If you could change one thing about her, what would it be? I love Kara. I think she's a wonderful character -flaws and damage included- but her life would be a lot easier if she were slightly less impulsive.
5. What did she need from Lee? More verbal acknowledgment that he loved her independent of their shared history.
6. Why did she love him? Because he gets her, because they click, because you can't always choose these things, though heaven knows Kara tried.

Lee "Shout it to the stars" Adama
1. Which of Lee's traits most gets in the way of pilots? His need to put his own happiness behind that of other people.
2. What about him makes pilots work? His stability, the way he understands Kara.
3. What is he like (or would he be like) in a real committed relationship? Caring, a little bit less of a pushover, patient, sweet.
4. If you could change one thing about him, what would it be? His instinct to be self-sacrificing.
5. What did he need from Kara? For her to choose him and mean it.
6. Why did he love her? Because they click, because he understands her and finds her fascinating, because you can't always choose these things.

What would pilots have to do to make a real relationship work? Talk to each other. Make some effort to be the most to each other. Prove to themelves and each other that they CAN make a relationship work.

Anything else you'd like to add? I'm still pretty new around these parts and am always happy to have more BSG fans on my flist!

This question had been cut before I answered this morning, which is ultimately a good thing because I wouldn't have had time to answer all the questions, but....

Would Lee actually make a good partner FOR YOU? I am a Kara who is married to a Lee. Quite happily. ;)

About You
1. Your name: Theo
2. Your birth month: October
3. What is your general professional or educational area?
I was really into Biology for a while, but I'm burnt out from the chem requirements. So I've put a hold on that for classes like Cultural Anthro and Post-WWII U.S. Right now I'm seriously considering doing something in the education field, probably a teacher. I'm not sure, but I've spent the past month thinking on it.
4. How many pets do you have: Technically? None. But my family has three.
5. When did you join LJ and why?
Joined back in late 2007, although I'd been lurking (on Wisteria and Bop and Latte's LJs) since 2005 when S2.5 started airing. I wanted to get involved in the discussions that everyone was having. I wanted to share that interest because nobody IRL cared that much for BSG.
6. What do you do on LJ?
Read fic and flail over current obsessions and snark. Loooooooots of snark.
7. What is your top fandom interest right now?
Supernatural. I'm also experiencing a small resurgence of Bones love too.
8. When was the last time you watched an episode of BSG? What was it?
When I hosted the rewatch for Revelations.
