Gonna have to disagree here. Unlike Leonard who primarily submits to Sheldon's will, Amy balks. She did it twice. During The Friendship Contraction when she refused to take Sheldon shopping because of her addiction studies and then at the end of the Valentine's Day episode. After Sheldon made her his Emergency Contact, Sheldon was abusing it and Amy was clearly frustrated. 

 

She was busy, that's why she was not going to drive him anywhere or that she got frustrated over his hypochondriac tendencies. But really for two scenes where Amy gets annoyed you get about fifty where she literally SAYS "his quirks just make you love him more/your personality quirks, which others find abhorrent or rage-inducing, I find cute as a button."

 

No offence, but I honestly think that believing Amy would go mental over the summer because of Sheldon is not knowing the Shamy at all. They spend a lot of time together - Amy can't even go bring a can full of change to the bank without Sheldon tagging along and getting tackled to the ground because Iron Man hemlet - and she's used to dealing with him, and like I said, they see the world the same way. Especially after 6x23, because Amy finally knows where their relationship is going.

More likely the scenerio isn't that Amy is going to balk but Sheldon is going to ask Penny for help. He's use to seeing Amy at certain times.(Girlfriend Agreement?). Amy's mostly likely going be mad about him depending more on Penny than her.

Okay so, i popped over to the Shamy thread and saw this thing they were doing so i sort of stole it and changed a few bits for over here. Really it's just something to get us moving past that whole thing we got into a little earlier on and bring the thread back to being about Leonard and Penny :) I think this will be a cool thing to do and i really want to see the different answers everyone will give, so yeah, i hope you all participate.  :)

 

1: The moment you shipped them and why

2: Favorite Episode

3: Favorite touching moment (kiss, hug, hand-holding, etc.)

4: A moment that made you happy/surprised (your choice)

5: Most underrated moment

6: Favorite moment, during a time when they weren’t a couple

7: Best quote

8: Overall Appreciation

 

I will put mines up soon, i'm trying to write a chapter so want to try and get some of that finished before i wrack my mind to think of the answers for all of them! haha :)

I don;t know if Sheldon will actually ask Penny for help, but i can definitely see Penny being the one getting really annoyed with Sheldon, and Amy being in the middle trying to calm them both down. I think LostInTheSun is right, Amy has a lot more tolerance for Sheldon than anyone else in the group, excluding possibly Leonard, so I can see everyone getting frustrated dealing with him, but not Amy so much. Penny especially! haha

I.A.Molly, Sheldon has less power over Amy because she lives and works at a distance, she has superior abilities to get get on with people and she has a relative indifference to Sheldon's superiority in his field - her paradigm subsumes his. There are many reasons why she can cope with him better - up to the end of s6 anyway (never mind that she fancies him too)

But if Penny has truly walked into the light, Sheldon has to take third place. He should only be a distraction and she shouldn't care too much about him. Her primary concern should be Leonard, so hopefully she will have been putting up barriers to Sheldon as she prepares to wean him off his dependencies on her and Leonard, or at least push him on to Amy.

It is written as a group home for the sake of the comedy so that won't happen, but I'm sort of over the communal living deal. They will always be slightly adolescent until they get their own spaces. Otherwise where is the adult commitment?

I guess that's my suspension of disbelief flagging. The glacier will slowly grind on. Which is both good and bad.

ETA. Just to be clear, I want Penny and Leonard to live together (in Nebraska?) and Sheldon and Amy can come visit for dinner or afternoon tea from time to time or whatever they want. The shared house is an obstacle that won't be removed. UNLESS they really disrupt/retool the show and that's hugely speculative.

That isn't going to happen in the timeline of the show though! haha And i dont think Penny will put up any barriers with Sheldon, i think she will continue to be like his big sister throughout the whole thing. She will look after him when he needs it and become super pissed off with him too. Just like i do with my lovely brothers! haha And i don;t think he would have to be pushed on to Amy either. I think she'd gladly take him on! haha

Yeah, dreaming, me.

I ship - apparently- and Sheldon is an obstacle not a complement (as, in enhancing factor) to the couple. Essential to the show so waddaya do? We will get there in the end.

eta 2 I find it difficult to ship both, as that's not my preference. And that's ok. I'm a dog boy, I guess. Or its my spot. <=joke. Hehehe. And I have sisters, but I prioritise around my wife, which is what will come for Leonard and Penny at some stage, when they grow up more. And then the kids... But who knows if we will get there. :):)

1. shipping aside ,  the first time I wanted these two to be a couple was when Penny hinted a little bit of jealousy over leslie because the attraction seemed mutual.

 

2. The Nerdvana Annihilation 

 

3. Penny hugging Leonard in the episode where Sheldon makes up a lie about his cousin

 

4 .Leonard kissing Penny in tangerine episode was definitely surprising 

 

5 . Underrated moment?? I don't know what the overrated moments are ....but I am giving this answer based on our discussions.... Penny kissing Leonard after his birthday party

 

6. Halloween episode scene

 

7. Penny seductively : Oh Leonard honey, if we start living together  I would'nt be able to keep my hands of you

   Leonard nervously , hopefully : Really ??

    Penny : And you thought my acting lessons were a waste of money.........   Burn lol lol

 

8. They're good couple but could have been great....

I could see the part about Sheldon bugging Penny for help more than Amy. She does live next door, and would be easier and quicker to get to. Of course Penny would be more likely to tell Sheldon to piss off then Amy, so it won't take long for Sheldon to burn through Penny's patience.

1: The moment you shipped them and why -> I shipped them I think since the Season 1 finale episode where Leonard asked Penny out. It was very sweet. And then I shipped them a little more in Season 3 when they become a couple but since the 100th episode I`m a huge shipper because from that episode on their realtionship grew step by step.

2: Favourite Episode:  Mmh I would say The Hollographic Excitation (because of the great lab scenes ) and  The 43 Peculiarity (because of the ILY from Penny to Leonard)

3: Favorite touching moment (kiss, hug, hand-holding, etc.) -> the lab scenes in The Hollographic Excitation it was so lovely and sweet and wonderful I loved it!

4: A moment that made you happy/surprised (your choice) -> the ILY from Penny to Leonard in episode 6.8 (The 43 Peculiarity)

5: Most underrated moment -> Mmh I would say when Pennys dad told Leonard not to give up on Penny (that was a great moment)

6: Favorite moment, during a time when they weren’t a couple -> I woud say the cuddle/kissing scene in The Love Car Displacement that was really cute!

7: Best quote: there are so much great quotes

8: Overall Appreciation:  they´re made for each other

Does anyone think TPTB look to the forums to see what the fans want? It seems we were talking about Penny proposing to Leonard long before the show had it. So are they giving us our wishes or are we that insightful?

The writers are forbidden from reading fan forums for fear of being sued for stealing ideas.

 

But there are really only a handful of directions that they can take the show without losing the fan base and hardcore forum fanatics will figure out those possible directions after a while.

I'm surprised that they could be sued from using something on a public forum. I thought you had to copyright something or patten it for it to be yours. Isn't that how the guy from Facebook really won his case and only had to pay a pittance to the plaintives that said Facebook was their idea, they had no copyright or patten, so they were just paid off to shut up.

Well I know they won't read scripts sent to them (unless you have an agent, and the agent submits them for you) just to avoid the chance of being sued.  But I would think an open forum like this would be OK. After all, there's not much that hasn't been done in 60+ years of television, not to mention all the plays and books written. That's probably why so many people compare BBT to Friends, or why Star Trek was originally pitched as 'Wagon Train' to the stars.

But really, if someone came up with a story idea and it turned up on the show, the person could make some kind of claim that their intellectual property was used, etc.

 

I'm not sure what the law is, but nobody wants to get into that kind of mess.

I don't believe so.  There are legel problems if any of them read the forums, someone could try to sue them for "stealing" their ideas, but I think that they have a pretty good idea of where they want to take the characters and how they want them to get there long before they start a new season.   There may already be an outline going from the start of the show to the very last episode of the show, they just extend and flesh out what's in between the start and finish.

Re the stealing the ideas - I'm so sceptical of this because I don't know how they could prove it. All they have to do is see an idea as a springboard off it anyway. eg. I asked if Leonard could get a professorial chair, next it's the tenure turbulence. No way I have the resources to investigate that or prove they peeked. Unless it was a verbatim steal it would be so hard to prove. An IP laywer might comment. But I'd hope they don't trawl the web, cos I'd like to believe otherwise. They spend all their paid time thinking about the show so I'd want them to do better than the gifted amateurs. The disclaimer that they don't look is protection and an assurance, but not a guarantee. IMHO. Hehehe.

Eta. If we ever see anyone vacuuming I'm claiming that but they can have if for free because I'd be so happy. If it was Penny, then take that (shakes fist at Penny haters). There was a vacuum cleaner in Howard's closet, but that's coincidence. :)
