Re: Does It Get Better???

All this talk about grey hair and relationships and loneliness and creativity and such... What a thread to wake up to after dreams about my ex and my puppy and facing another day of feeling artistically empty while looking for work.

Re: Does It Get Better???

Buy some chalk from a two dollar shop.

There's pavement and roads almost everywhere there isn't grass or water.

The thread is called "Does it get better" how could it not eventually turn into this this?

Re: Does It Get Better???

I have a story about chalk and sidewalks actually...

This is our second separation. Don't know if we're getting back together this time but... during our first separation (before we lived together) I got some chalk and wrote "I love you" in her native language down the public sidewalk, all the way from her front door to the bus stop where she caught the bus for work.

Re: Does It Get Better???

What has happened to my thread!?

Getting back on track......

Life Line: Another TNG crossover!!! Barclay and Troi on Voyager again, woo hoo!!! Fanboy adoration aside, I thought this was a really cleverly written episode with some wonderful interplay between the Doctor and Zimmerman. There was plenty of humor, but also some really touching character moments. The Doctor's longing to be accepted and loved by his creator was moving.
9/10

The Haunting of Deck Twelve: Filler and a plot full of cliches, but fun and entertaining nonetheless! Neelix was the perfect storyteller, and I loved seeing the Borg children's reactions! There was plenty of excitement to keep this one afloat.

Dude, I've gotten to know you fairly well in the past and I think you'll have no trouble finding another(if you chose) to return your love. You're an awesome guy with allot to offer. You'd be a great blessing for any woman to have. I think she'll be back because I doubt she'll find many(if any) better than you, dude.

It really shows how and why Neelix is great with children.
It also shows great growth with his character.
In "Elogium" he had doubts about being capable about being a parent and role model for a child. Between his time with Naomi and the Borg kids, he's really grown up and shown he has what it takes to be a good parent. Gone is the selfish, jealous person we saw in the first few seasons. Neelix has really grown up.

It's like VOY. Goes off on little tangents of its own. Just press your nearest reset button to restore sanity.

Sorry about that, Chief.

I didn't like the Barclay crossovers that much because they just came out of nowhere, even that really early one (Projections). I think they used him a little too much, with more appearances than series TNG, but I always liked watching Dwight Schultz get outside Howling Mad Murdock, where I'd first seen him.

And Neelix was my least favorite character, though Ethan Phillips did an excellent job at making him annoying and could make the character sympathetic. Neelix only wanted to be liked and feel useful.

Re: Does It Get Better???

I used to...disdain...the TNG crossovers, esp as not a fan of that series. Bah, who are these usurpers coming into my precious VOY just to boost ratings? Rewatching recently found didn't mind so much. I guess 'cause always kinda liked Barclay. He was like TNG's whipping boy, and always had soft spot for underdogs. Plus Schultz is actually a pretty decent actor. Troi/Sirtis? Meh, but she was ok.

Deck 12 I just think of as sweet Hallowe'en ep. Was that the season's statutory bottle/cheap one?

Re: Does It Get Better???

VOY's TNG crossovers were lovely. Barclay is a great character, good to see someone with real flaws rather than just the occasional power mad admiral. Troi looked gorgeous and sounded like a sort of normal person finally. But what really lifts them is that the VOY TNG crossovers are works of art after you've been exposed to that stench on a stick that ENT gave us.

And regarding that. Troi, what happened man I thought you'd changed.. and then you changed back

(Looks)

Hmmm. Not exactly a Mary Sue situation, but sure comes close.

Re: Does It Get Better???

The movies had mood lighting. Voyager just had box lights turned up to 11.

Thing I don't get is that Zimmrman was secretly in love with the little blond Hologram even as he was seducing Leeta and trying to woo her away to Jupiter Station.

Haley(She was a primary cast member of Odyssey 5? Cool.) would have drowned Lyta in an acid bath after a week.

If she'd married Wyatt Miller like she was supposed to, you wouldn't have to ask that.
