I've been thinking about tropes while contemplating [community profile] tagyourit nominations. So for day seven of the "ten posts in ten days challenge," have a few favourite tropes/scenarios.

If you're writing something for me for any reason--and THANK YOU if you are--and want more information about my likes and dislikes, this is the post for you. If you are writing for me, reading this is totally optional. It's only here 'cause I know some people like extra info, and I like to feed my stalkers writers. Seriously, if you just want to go by my letter or whatever prompts I left in my sign-up, that's fine too. But if those aren't working for you, or you're the type who likes to know everything, read on.

I was rewatching "Sateda" recently, and I got to the point where Teyla says John lacks social skills, and...I'm trying to figure out where that comes from, 'cause I can't find any evidence of it in the show. Everything I've seen--the first meeting with the Athosians, giving Elizabeth a birthday gift, John's easy friendships with his (dead) colleagues in "Home," hanging out with Ronon, his interactions with his team and other people on Atlantis--suggests to me that his social skills are quite good. People seem to like him, and he doesn't strike me as really struggling in social situations. Now, if you want to call him introverted, or emotionally uncommunicative, or reluctant to form intimate relationships, I could get behind that. We certainly don't see him going around talking about his feelings, and I don't think that's just because the writers didn't bother showing us those scenes. But socially inept? I don't see it. Am I missing something?
