AFT SG-1: Jack and Daniel at vacation at the Sea - part 2/2  
Part 1 was here

So, here comes the second part of the little adventure at the Sea. Click on the link for all pictures:

A vacation with only lying at the beach is boring, so Daniel asked whether they could do some sightseeing and visit that church:

Jack agreed but only if they also visited that famous submarine:

"Oh Jack, can we rent a beach chair, too? I always wanted to sit in a beach chair!"

"You're right, Daniel, that is quite comfy!"

"Um, Jack, that's actually not what I meant."

Daniel is pissed.

Then he finds another solution against the sun - the pink umbrella from my ice cream bowl.

Das ist wieder so klasse, Astra. Die Beiden machen eine Sideseeing - Tour, und erholen sich in einem Strandkorb.
Danke fürs teilen, Astra.
Liebe Grüße

That look that Jack gives Daniel when he asks if they could rent a beach chair is priceless!

Also, Jack looks sooo comfortable in that chair reading the newspaper.

Did you have any trouble getting Daniel to stand in the sand? I'm impressed that his feet are not buried in it to steady him.
Antjedieastra on August 2nd, 2011 10:03 pm (UTC)
LOL I am not responsible for any looks ;) This was just a quick "put them there and make a picture" mission, without long posing.

When I bought the chair I was under the impression that both of them would fit in. My calculating was wrong :( So I actually had not planned for Daniel to become pissed, it just happened. But I can see Jack being a bit of a jerk ;)
The Torchwood figures are smaller, maybe they will fit in).

With some other pictures, his feet were buriend more and he kept falling over. Guess I was lucky. With those particular figures I also have trouble standing them on a table, as they have so many joints in their legs which makes for nice poses but somehow unstable standing.

I love your photos of the guys. But where's Sam? Remember Jack was fantasizing about a black bikini in Urgo!!! nell
Antjedieastra on August 5th, 2011 08:53 pm (UTC)
Unfortunately, I don't have any figure in casual or beach clothes where I could put a Sam head on. And you really don't want her to go to the beach in her uniform!

I actually don't remember the black bikini at the moment - must watch this episode again ;)

Der Strandkorb sieht echt klasse aus - und eine nette Story drum herum!
Antjedieastra on August 5th, 2011 08:44 pm (UTC)
Ja, war eigentlich ganz anders geplant, aber ich hab das Beste draus gemacht! Und manchmal sind die unerwarteten Sachen ja sowieso besser.

Ha ha ha -- that's great! :-)

Thank you very much!

Please forgive me - I had a look into your profile today and did a double take when I read that you once visited Dresden. This is my homecity, where I live! (Isn't it beautiful?) How did you end up over here, especially from Munich, which is not just around the corner? Just curious! (unless you are someone I actually know under a different name?)

I see also David Tennant among your interests - I would like to show these two entries, which might interest you as well:



Also, there are masterlists for all the action figure theatre (Stargate, Torchwood, Dr. Who) in the upper right corner - in case you want to see more!

Meridiani: snowshoemeridiani on August 8th, 2011 03:55 pm (UTC)
Yes, Dresden is beautiful! My husband had a business trip there, and I was lucky enough to be able to come along. The meeting he was at was for just two or three days, so we had time to explore the city and a little bit of the countryside. We both liked it a lot and would love to visit again.

I've really only passed through Munich's airport, so I really shouldn't list it as a place I've been to, though I would like to spend some real time there.

You mentioned that David Tennant was among my interests, and I was, like, "What?!? I don't even know who David Tennant is!" So I went and looked at my interests and, just as you said, there was David Tennant! I have no idea how I added him . . . well, it was probably one of those check-box things where you can add other people's interests to your own. I must have accidentally checked David Tennant. So funny!

Well, now I've removed David Tennant from my interests, but I still went and checked out those two action figure theatre pieces, and they were really fun, even if one does not know who David Tennant is. Ha ha :-)
Antjedieastra on August 8th, 2011 05:43 pm (UTC)
That is great that you could accompany your husband on that business trip to Dresden and that you had enough time to explore everything properly. Saxon Switzerland is lovely with all those sandstone mountains and not far away for a quick hike.

I always love to walk through the city and watch all those international tourists. Not long ago I also had someone from Wisconsin for a visit, who likes espcially old castles and such, and we have lots of that!

Heh, that is indeed funny that you don't even know who David Tennant is! I admit I was surprised to find him in your interests, but no added communities whatsoever. So, please let me educate you: Have you ever heard of the British (running for decades) sci-fi show "Doctor Who"? It is becoming more and more popular in the US as well. And David Tennant was the Tenth Doctor for a few years, he has moved on from the role now but we all still miss him.

He is a great actor, very versatile, doing TV, theatre, audio work and also movies. At the moment, we all wait for the release of the remake of "Fright Night" at the end of August, where he plays Peter Vincent, who knows, you might end up adding him to your interests again ;)

Here is a little trailer:

And that link I gave you was from June where I travelled to London to see him live on stage in Shakespeare's "Much ado about nothing", and meeting him at the stagedoor afterwards and getting autographs and photographs was my highlight of the year so far!

At the moment we also watch "Torchwood" with the lovely John Barrowman in the lead, which started as a spin-off from "Doctor Who" and is now running on Starz in a co-production between them and the BBC, it was mostly filmed in L.A. - actually, a lot of my old Stargate-friends have moved on to the Torchwood and/or Doctor Who universum, so you might want to check it out!

The early Torchwood seasons felt a lot like the original SG-1 to me, as it was set in nowadays Cardiff and a team working in an underground base had to deal with alien stuff without letting people know. While "Doctor Who" is mainly about that Doctor, who travels in space and time, to the future, to the past, to other planets but also history of Earth, so it is more adventorous (and also educating for the children).

Oh, and one last thing I forgot last time: I take it your visit to British Columbia has to do with Gatecon or MTM, to meet Richard Dean Anderson? I was there too, both times! I just met him again in Birmingham in May - was nice that he had to do the long distance travelling for a change, not me ;)

Loved Vancouver, we visited a lot of Stargate and MacGyver locations.

Sorry for talking your ear off. My enthusiasm always gets the better of me ;)
Meridiani: Karen at the helmmeridiani on August 31st, 2011 05:11 pm (UTC)
Sorry for taking so long to reply. Thanks for all the info on David Tennant, Doctor Who, and Torchwood. I definitely will check them out.

Actually, I was up in British Columbia on a sailing trip; I never made it to Vancouver, though we visited a number of places on Vancouver Island -- beautiful! And, in fact, I am on a sailing trip right now, too, which is my excuse for taking so long to get back to you. My husband and I are sailing our 41-foot sailboat north along the American Pacific Northwest coast from San Francisco Bay to the Columbia River. Next summer we hope to sail farther north, to British Columbia, and I hope to finally visit Vancouver!

I have never had the opportunity to meet Richard Dean Anderson, though I am thoroughly in love with him ;) from afar. Okay, maybe I'm really in love with Jack O'Neill, but I do so enjoy RDA's acting and his personality; he seems like such a nice guy.

Hey, I'm planning to start studying the German language sometime in the autumn, when I get back to my home in New Mexico. Would it be alright to try out my beginner's German on you now and then?
Antje: RDA2dieastra on December 28th, 2011 09:43 pm (UTC)
As you can see, I can do VERY late replies as well ;) Sorry.

Hope you are back home by now, and had a lovely Christmas. I recently did a post with pictures of my Christmas decorations, all the wooden figures. You can have a peek here:


I hope you will make it to Vancouver, it is a lovely city, and also has many things - water for whalewatching tours and hills for hiking and skiing in the winter.

So, how's the beginner German going? Anything you want to try out yet?

Wondering if you ever found the time to check out "Doctor Who" or "Torchwood". Back when I wrote this I was so excited that the fourth TW season would be aired on an American channel, so to get a wider audience, but now I almost feel sorry for telling you about it, as it was not what I (and many other fans) had expected. It did not feel like the TW we all knew and loved anymore. It was mostly filmed in L.A. and had new cast added. A bit like the last two Stargate seasons were very different from the rest.

It was still a pretty good show and has found new fans, but could have been so much better in details. So maybe checking out the older episodes, which are set in Cardiff and the lovely Welsh landscape would be more recommended.

Anyway, if you do have any questions, I'm happy to answer them!

Have a good start into 2012!

lolol! Oh, those are really, really good! I love the ones with the sub and Jack in the chair especially. Great perspective work in making them look like they're the correct size.

Keep up the fantastic work!
Antjedieastra on August 3rd, 2011 08:35 pm (UTC)
Thank you so much for that enthusiastic feedback! *hugs*

Very cool job ;)
Antjedieastra on August 5th, 2011 09:33 pm (UTC)
Thank you very much!

I see you like Torchwood as well (no Doctor Who?) - have you seen my Torchwood actionfigure theatre? Masterlist with all links is here:


And here are all the Stargate stories, in case you missed some:


Greetings from Germany to Spain!

Antjedieastra on August 7th, 2011 09:03 am (UTC)
Thanks ;)
If it makes you feel better - this story wasn't exactly planned that way. Turned out the beach chair I bought was too small...
Beth: jack - 2010stargatesg1971 on August 7th, 2011 09:38 am (UTC)
Well you worked that in nicely. It came across as such a Jack thing to do.
badly_knitted: Laughing Jackbadly_knitted on February 18th, 2012 11:25 pm (UTC)
*giggles* Jack and Daniel on vacation! They mostly seemed to have a good time, except for Jack keeping the beach chair for himself.
Antje: RDA2011dieastra on February 18th, 2012 11:32 pm (UTC)
Thanks! Yeah, totally my fault with the beach chair - I accidentally bought the wrong size. When I realized they would not both fit in, I made the most of it and now everyone thinks it's funny ;)

Right, you're a Stargate fan as well. Then you surely recognized the replicators in my today's Hub story ;) Did I ever throw my masterlist with all the Stargate action figure stories at you? Because that's where my love began years ago and my friends and me have done quite a lot of those. You can find it all here:


And just in case here are the Doctor Who http://dieastra.livejournal.com/23912.html and Torchwood http://dieastra.livejournal.com/23552.html stories, so you have it all neatly in one place and can check out whatever and whenever you want to!

Unfortunately I can't do a Stargate/Torchwood crossover, the SG-figures are much bigger than the TW-figures.
badly_knitted: Film Star Smilebadly_knitted on February 18th, 2012 11:37 pm (UTC)
Thanks for the links! I'll be able to go browsing when I can find the time =)
