"So I talked to the writers about it and said ‘A, women don’t talk like this. B, why can’t she just be a member of this team without constantly raising the flag that she’s a woman?’" [x]

“I didn’t like my character that much in the first episode,” says Tapping. “I didn’t dislike her but I thought that her feminist diatribe was a little tiresome and I didn’t want her to be angry all the time. All I could see was this, ‘I’m out to prove myself,’ woman. I wanted her to be a well-rounded individual who is accessible and warm and someone who, especially young girls, could look up to and think, ‘Yes, I can relate to this person.’ [x]

"I am not afraid of the word feminist. It’s been hard fought. The women of my grandmothers generation weren’t considered a “person under the law” when they were born. Astounding. We are well aware that women are still struggling around the world for equality and in some countries for their own safety. So it’s not a bad word to me. I’ve been lucky in my career that I’ve generally been cast as smart strong women. Sam and Helen have both been gifts for me as an actress. So much depth and courage. Sam is a great role model for many reasons. She helped make Amanda a stronger person." [x]

I wanted to ball my eyes out at this scene.

I have watched all of Stargate Universe before, I know I have. I knew what happened. But apparently I didn’t remember anything in season two beyond the ending.

But season two is amazing. They finally found a balance between the military, civilians and scientists. They toned down the earth-based melodrama. Levity! Character-based, appropriate (or not) jokes! Good, interesting, conceptual Scifi stories!

Watching the finale just now was very emotional. All the lights going off on the destiny, saying goodbye.

I think I just achieved Stargate closure four years late.

Melpomene & The Muses

Within Greek Mythology there are 9 muses. They are essentially the goddesses who inspire literature, science, and the arts. Believed to be the source of knowledge and creativity, Clio, Thalia, Erato, Euterpe, Polyhymnia, Calliope, Terpsichore, Urania, and Melpomene were the muse sisters.

Melopmene in particular was initially born as the Muse of Life. However, when she and Zeus had a child, Hera (Zeus’s wife) placed a curse on her and she became the Muse of Death. Later, Melpomene slept with Zeus once more and this time, bore him a son again. Once discovered by Hera, she became enraged. In her anger, she made Melpomene infertile and turned her into the Muse of Tragedy. It is said that Melpomene is the love of Zeus’s life.

A way to identify Melpomene in art is the tragedy mask she holds which is used in tragic plays.

Best of luck to Scotland with the Referendum. Vote well, my people.

And best of luck to me, the proverbial jon snow, with my exam. Sigh.
