Hey y'all! I am looking for opinions regarding which SGA idea I should pursue for my scifibigbang
story. I posted this on my personal journey but thought it was fitting to crosspost to here, since this comm's readers are the prime target for either option. :)
Both will be Weir-centric and have at least some delicious Weir/Caldwell. But I have two ideas and I'm sort of torn between them. So I want your opinions on the ideas and which I should work on for this challenge.Idea #1, Codename: Seven Wonders
This would be more heavy on the Weir/Caldwell specifically and would go AU somewhere around S3 in terms of canon. The premise would be that, through some calamity, Weir and Caldwell would end up stranded on a planet without a Stargate where they would be forced to acclimate to this new world and basically slowly fall in love as they dealt with the loss of their old lives and began new ones. There would be an eventual circle back to Atlantis and other such happenings in there, too.Idea #2, Codename: 7of9
The codename from this one comes from my comparison of nanite-infested Weir to 7of9. Anyway, this story would try to stay canon compliant and would be set post-finale. Caldwell and the team discover that Weir was not killed by Oberoth or turned into a replicator but had escaped the Asurans and has been living in exile on a planet in the Pegasus scared to return home for fear she would endanger Atlantis. But even though it is now is safe for her to return since the Asurans have been destroyed, she is faced with distrust and suspicion since her teammates believe that her consciousness is embodied in the a replication of FRAN floating in space.
So thoughts? I like #2 which is newer and canon compliant (and means I have been consuming far more of postS3 SGA than I ever wanted) but I'm worried that making there be three Weirs might be a little too canon-denying on one hand but on the other, I really hate what they did in Ghost in the Machine.
Which one sounds more interesting to y'all? Which would you actually want to read? Etc. and so forth. Any comments relating to one or both of the stories and your preferences thereof are welcome!
