About

According to TFL.org, a fanlisting is "a web clique that lists fans of a particular subject. Unlike most web cliques, a person does not need a web site in order to join. Fans from around the world submit their information to their approved fanlisting and they are then listed to show their love for the subject."

This particular fanlisting is for Dr. Elizabeth Weir. She makes her first appearance in the Stargate franchise in SG-1 Season 7, in the finale episodes "The Lost City Part I" and "Part II." She also appears in Stargate SG-1 Season 8's premiere episodes, "New Order Part I" and "Part II." Afterwards, she joins the regular cast of Stargate Atlantis as leader of the Stargate Atlantis expedition. Originally played by Jessica Steen in Stargate SG-1 Season 7, Weir is played by Torri Higginson in Season 8 and in Stargate Atlantis.

I am madly in love with Atlantis's Elizabeth. She's currently my favorite TV character, despite no longer being on Atlantis, and I love her very, very much. I think she's a gorgeous, admirable character. I think one reason I adore her so much is that she isn't the type of female character I usually like, and so she's made me realize that there are characters who can break the mold. Although I do prefer Higginson's Weir, I opened this fanlisting after seeing Steen's Weir, whom I also love.

In Stargate SG-1 Season 7, she is an easy target for animosity because she replaces General Hammond, but this situation isn't by her choice. Both President Hayes and Vice President Kinsey make it clear that she can't turn down her appointment. It's not apparent why Hayes specifically picks her, but he couldn't have made a better choice- as the fanlisting's name suggests, Weir has integrity, a character trait I admire very much. She has her biases, of course, but she makes the best she can out of an incredibly difficult situation. She despises Kinsey and doesn't give in to his bullying threats, even though she might have sided with him for a number of reasons- her distrust of the military's secret involvement in such an important project, or more self-serving reasons. However, Weir is fair and proves that she is genuinely a good person; in the end, she approves SG-1's mission which leads to them saving the world (yet again <3). Plus, Weir even tries to be funny- and though she didn't impress Jack O'Neill, he senses that there is "hope" for her after all.

Although very human, Steen's version of Weir seems a little aloof and out-of-place at the SGC. In "New Order," Higginson puts a slightly different spin on the character. Higginson's Elizabeth demonstrates that she adapts to her situations, isn't afraid to be open about what she needs and requires, and is dryly funny and warm. She is still endearingly somewhat idealistic, but she is supported by Daniel Jackson, who helps her throughout the episodes. Elizabeth is really kick-ass in these episodes, and I think she is one of the main reasons "New Order" is so good.

In Stargate Atlantis, although Weir admits many of the decisions she's made weren't the type she had in mind when leading the Atlantis expedition, she nevertheless remains in control and listens to people under her command. Her decisions are always made for the benefit of everyone involved. And she pretty much sacrifices herself in Season 4 for the good of others.
