ROFL *tips hat*
Thing is, there’s bound to be a huge crossover, isn’t there? I mean…Science/Math-Geeks-In-Graduate-Science-Programs and Science/Math-Geeks-Addicted-to-Scifi&Writing-Fanfic?
aaaaa ha ha ha ha ha ha!!! WE HAVE THE SEXIEST FACULTY AT SGU - THAT SCOTTISH GUY DAAAYUM! ….WHAT CLASS DOES HE TEACH, EXACTLY??
Autumn in the SGU tag :D
Think the St. George’s University School of Medicine students are as puzzled about our Stargate Universe posts as we are about their medical school/living in Grenada posts?
Concerto in E minor though, the appropriateness, it’s too much.
The out of control forward momentum, those high notes almost stretched to breaking, quavering even in happiness, restrained repetition so carefully controlled slowly giving way to madness so frantic you can’t believe the melody can be quite intentional. And the solos, orchestra dropping away, just you and a violinist, enraptured, and when the orchestra seems to have reclaimed that voice it breaks free again.
It is a song to break a mind, and the madness and loss and relentless inescapable crushing inevitability of barreling down a path which you may momentarily slow but will never ever change or stop. Sweetness may arise but in the end can’t help but be a variation on that theme.

[ETA: Maths pretty much renders me incoherent….thus I say nothing other than yes, it is that good.]
I’ve barely scratched the surface of Mathématique and I’m already wrecked, why must it be concerto in E minor, that is probably my favourite violin piece. Minds are so beautiful and a scientific mind driven to advancement moreso, a notepad or wall of hastily scribbled notes representing a stack-overflow of the most amazingly complicated powerful machine and is as beautiful as any art to me. But the cost can be so painful, the tragedy so deep as to be integral, the history so fraught with pain and madness, the only recourse seems to be distraction by immersion in that oxygen-like process of analysis and thought which from first breath brings life but slowly corrodes.
But CWR expresses that duality in its own language and it strips away any linguistic defences and jacks straight into emotionally pure truth. It may be fiction but with so many like Turing, with the (semi)historical precedent for the curse of the ninth, it is fiction as a wrapper for truth and therefore in a sense as real as external world via fleshy sensor devices or history via records of the dead, it’s a realm of existence we consider good enough to call real in everyday parlance, so this too smacks more of reality than fiction.
Time to put on some Mendelssohn and hope a comparatively firmer reality can encompass and mitigate that which is more ethereal and yet more overpowering.
I feel so “neohipster”. I have been playing Superco^2 (nducking lliders)music ALL DAY. Like, the band and the sound and lyrics are soooooo good. Like, I listen to mostly hardcore rap and rock and next thing you know, I’m singing Sea of Dirac and Plate Tectonics at the same time. And geeez, yall need to check the band out… and the fanfic while your at it…. (Designations Congruent with Things).
[tableforone’s tags: #I still can’t get over the band#or the music#The fic is deeeep#and the songs represent the strife PETTY well if you pay attention to the lyrics.#don’t even talk to me about their song evangeline …#or Hedy lamarr#those songs pull strings in my heart#THE FIC WILL ALSO DO THAT TO YOU.#this is one of the best newmann stuff since EVER#not to mention that Nietzsche and Descartes are in the fic#I prefer Nietzsche but hey#Descartes has his good points#The abyss tho#how it WILL STARE back into you#oh god#feeeeeeeels]
ALL THESE THINGS. AND ALL THESE FEELS. AND ALL FANS :D
Yoooooo, I know it’s a school night and there’s no good reason for me to be up but damn, certain fanfic will control your consciousness until you’re done reading [see: CRYING FLAILING over] them.
[tableforone’s tags: #this fix fucked me up#it was so sad#and so rewarding#the ending tho…#I really need a sequel#please cwr#and the superco^2 (onducting lliders) band and music is so awesome#holy shit#I love sea of dirac#and ancient curse#and many others]
Yup, allll true…and yet we all come back for more :)
