Dear flist,

To those of you that are now spoiled for 4x09 (4x11), thank you, thank you, THANK YOU for being kind and using cuts and copious warnings. I very much appreciate it. I don't want to read anything (I don't even want to actually see the flailing, but I can't avoid that) so thank you for keeping me unspoiled (and your asses un-airlocked).

To those who are not spoiled and don't want to be spoiled, but are finding it hard to stay away, think of these couple of things:

1. I don't know what draft of the script it is that's been leaked (and NO, I DON'T WANT TO KNOW. DON'T TELL ME!). Hell, for all we know it could be a first of second draft and as we all know, those change dramatically from what is written to what we see on screen (case in point, Taking a Break from All You Worries was originally a nice little episode about a bar).

2. BSG scripts are long... really long and A LOT of stuff gets cut out, so the scene(s) that everyone is flailing over may not even make it into the final cut. We just don't know.

What I'm saying is, there's no point (in my mind) of reading something and either getting my hopes up or getting crushed only to find out that it's not what we're gonna see on screen.

Also, looking now could conceivably ruin the three episodes in between (knowing where things are going and all) and I just don't want that.

So, for those reasons (and just because I DO NOT LIKE BEING SPOILED) I am NOT READING IT!

So, to recap:

1. Thanks for not spoiling me, flist.
2. I'm not reading the spoilers for lots of reasons.

Much love,


PS. Just in case...

SPOIL ME AND BE AIRLOCKED (and by that I still mean instand defriending). I AM NOT FUCKING KIDDING!

*cough* I'm done now.

Not to mention how do we even know that they've actually seen what they claim to see?

I'm in a weird place with spoilers, but I'm pissed here because obviously based on the reactions before the spoiler cut there's an indication of something big.

True. Very true.

I know. I don't want to see the massive flailing. Then I KNOW I'm waiting for something. But, if the alternative is completely spoiling me, then... lesser of two evils, I suppose.

.... the only problem with this post, is I didn't know there was anything to be spoiled about!

(No worries, I'm not mad, I was just commenting on slippery slope of spoilers.)

*headdesk* Sorry!! It's all over LJ though. You'd see it soon enough, of that I'm sure. Heh.

Actually, I dropped any BSG community I was a member of (didn't like the spamminess of it all, too much random ass posts), so really, you are one of two people on my flist who ever posts on the show.

So no, I probably would never have found out.

Still don't care you posted about it, because I know your flist is heavy BSG these days, so you got to keep your ducks in a row in case they get fucked. I'd do the same thing if something major was going on in the Bonesverse.

From: [identity profile]
Oh. Yeah, the comms are a little spammy.

But yes, you're right, my flist is probably 50% BSG people and most of my flist interaction is with them, so... yeah, I did need to lay down the law on this one again. Heh

From: [identity profile]
Ha, I guess I would have found out (about the existence of a spoiler), my other flister posted about it.

I still have no idea what the frak is going on, and I still don't care.

Go us.

From: [identity profile]
Hee! Well then, not I don't feel as bad!

And I have no idea what it's all about either, and I really don't want to, but I just KNOW someone's gonna slip in the next three weeks and let it out and then I'll have to kill someone. I'll be sad for a minute, but I gotta do what I gotta do.

Go us indeed. We rock.

You are totally my hero (and I'm a little afraid of you... in a good way).

LOL! No need to be afraid. I'm harmless...most of the time.

You could just point her in the right direction and she'd go after them. I'm sure she'd have a great time blowing them away.

Hee! Still, totally staying on your good side!! :D

She would. She's awesome that way. Handy to have around. Heh.

Date: 2008-05-07 01:25 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
Definitely handy to have around. Although, I am probably a better shot than she is. :) Of course, I would never tell her that.

Oh no!! You can't say that!! She's fiesty and, well... MEEP!

ACK! This serves as warning to me. I had no idea there was a leaked script. I am going to have to be on guard. (Battlestar is one of the few shows for which I have absolutely no idea about future episodes. And I intend to keep it that way.)

The good news is, this means I am safe from your auto-airlock.

From: [identity profile]
Sorry. I feel bad that people are finding out that there's a spoiler out there from me, but like I said to tipsy I need to make my position on this real clear.

But yes, you're totally safe from my auto-airlock. You can stay on the happy side of space.

Well, considering that I rarely even talk about BSG on my LJ, you're safe from spoilers from me. I can understand not even wanting to see the flailing, cause even if you don't see the actual spoiler, you still know something is coming.

Congrats on staying strong and avoiding the spoilers. You have waaaaay more willpower than I did. I tried to stay spoiler free for awhile, but I'm not to good at it.

Date: 2008-05-07 03:38 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
Yeah, I'm safe from you. But yeah, even the flailing is too much, because now I'm going to watch that episode waiting for something flail-worthy and I don't like to watch that way.

I really have ZERO desire to read spoilers. I don't even watch the "next week on BSG" previews because I like knowing NOTHING about the episode going in. Heh.

I heard that there's this chick from Western Canada that ends up in a three-way with Roslin and Adama.

Of course, my sources might be wrong. Especially considering I just made it up. But it could happen.

Okay, now see, that's the kind of spoiler I can get behind!!!

*goes to the happy place*

From: [identity profile]
Yeah, I considered that 'might be deleted' bit...which would REALLY suck, because imagine dealing with four weeks of temptation and willpower only to get nothing. But for now I'm good just knowing that something big is happening.

Of course, about five minutes ago I literally came thisclose to clicking on it. It'll be better in a few days when the hype dies down. But until then, no IM.

*hugs* Deep breathing...and it'll be worth it.

Date: 2008-05-07 03:40 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
STAY STRONG!!! But yes, in a couple days when the flailing and craziness dies down then I'll feel much better. Not because I'm tempted, but because I'm scared someone's gonna spoil me. Heh.

I couldn't help myself...I had been so good...I have now been spoiler free for 23 minutes....

But its so true, they could all be total bullshit and everyone will break down and cry. I'm glad I read them now so hopefully I'll get all the excitement out of my system by the time 4.11 rolls round so I won't cry too hard that said scene was cut bwahahahahahhaha.

Power to ya girl!!!! And don't worry I've got every reference too and discussion of said spoilers hiding behind a nice shineh lj cut.

I too am unspoiled and plan to stay that way if I can help it. I keep thinking back on RDM's comments in the last podcast of season 3. He said he was going to write alternate versions and leak them - ON PURPOSE!!

I won't believe it until it hits the screen this season.

Date: 2008-05-07 03:42 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
Yeah. I just... I don't want to know. It ruins all the fun. And RDM is that devious. OMG, I will DIE LAUGHING if this happens to be a fake script. *giggle*

It's fun to squee ahead, but you're idea what makes it to the ep in the end. Never thought of that, hehehe :-P I read spoilers sometimes, but it's nothing like watching the real ep and make up your own mind about it. I got two ears: in one and out the other. ;-)

And ah's bsg...things always end up how you LEAST expect it, so you can relax, muhy, and release the airlock button, even if it's a little bit :-P :-P :-P

Ah, see, for me there is nothing fun about squeeing ahead of time. This is the first season I've been able to watch "live" with everyone else (I was horribly spoiled for the first three seasons) and I like going into it blind. :)

Murph: The butler did it.

Seriously, I am so glad that I don't watch because I can't spoil anyone. That makes me feel good that I won't accidentally spill the beans.

Hee! Yeah the people on my flist that don't wath BSG are safe from being airlocked, which is a good thing.
