Okay, I know that I've been a little obsessive (and for some of you, annoying) over the past year with my Battlestar Galactica love, but I am who I am. For those who are curious, this post should give you a little insight into what I love so much about this show. So... in honour of the season 4 premiere this Friday, I present 50 reasons I love Battlestar Galactica (in no particular order, despite the use of numbers).

And, um, sorry about the crappy colouring. I just couldn't get anything to work and I wasn't about to go back and fix everything. Meh.

I'm glad you stopped by, I have something for you. I got it from one of the colonists down on New Caprica and I forgot about it. Tory found it in a pile of old clothes.
41. IT'S NOT A LOAN; IT'S A GIFT

Blood Runs at Midnight?

Don't let the title fool you. It's a pretty good mystery. I think you'll like it. And it's not a loan; it's a gift.

Do you ever think about the times much on New Caprica?

I try to think about the good times, yes, I do.

One in particular really stands out in my mind. You were wearing a really bright red dress, said you wanted to build a cabin.

It was Baltar's groundbreaking ceremony. I got a little silly that night.

Ever wonder what would have happened if the cylons hadn't come back.
Well, given Baltar and the terrain we couldn't have made a go of it. What about you? Do you think you would have stayed on Glactica, or do you think you would have settled?

It's pretty hypothetical, isn't it?

It is, until it isn't. *laughs* Did I just say that?

It's worth it just to see you laugh like that. We've been at war for so long sometimes we forget what we're fighting for. Raise our kids in peace. Enjoy one another's company. Live life, as people again.
Like that night on New Caprica, that's really what we're talking about here, now, isn't it.

That, and other times.
So... if the cylons hadn't come back?

But they did. We have certain responsibilities.
Yes we do sir, and uh, I will be back in a few days and if you'd like, we can talk more about that night.

And Bill...

The answer's yes, I absolutely would've built the cabin.

It is unfortunate, but they didn't want to let the fans know about them frakking like bunnies too early on in the show.

Of COURSE I was gonna include rope flirting. Just for you!

Oh, Billy, you had to go be a hero. *wibble*

You did call the leg thing. In fact, if we do the percentages, you may not be far off your guess. Hee!

Dude, you rock!

BTW, what did you do to make the colouring actually work on those New Caprica snuggling caps? I've been trying to fix that since I got them and can't figure out the right shade...

Date: 2008-04-02 03:14 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] murphy987.livejournal.com
Awesome! Thanks!

Colouring. Um, on those I think it was a duplicate base at screen and the a couple colour balance layers and then fiddling with curves. I didn't save the photoshop worksheet, otherwise I'd post exactly how I did it. *looks sheepish*

Totem pole faces of death..FTW!! The dancing,PHONE SEX!!, Billceps (does wanna lick em..LOL) The kiss, and THE ADAMA MANEUVER...hopefully Bill has some other spectacular moves up his sleeve in season 4...not involving spaceships! ;-)
