[Spoilers] Shamy: Season 9

Recommended Posts

Anyone have any suggestions on some good Shamy fanfiction?  It is 48 degrees below zero here and I need some Shamy goodness to get me through a couple more days of this crazy cold weather!

 Q Can I ask what a "chiropodist" is?  Are you in the UK too?  Is that a British term?  I'm American and I swear I've never heard it...I'm a linguist too, so I'm just curious!

A Chiropodist are similar to a podiatrists, but chiropodist require less learning in Ontario, Canada. Not sure if that's the same for the UK or the rest of Canada. :dontknow:

 

The above is a notification in my email but when I click 'go to this post'  it doesn't lead me to it.

In UK a podiatrist is a doctor so the training period would be six years plus however much time is required to learn the speciality. ' iatr' in a word is Greek for doctor so in UK  an iatrist or an iatrician of any kind is a specialist doctor. 

You're right,the training for a chiropodist is much shorter. I think it's between one and three years, depending on what previous medical qualifications he or she has. Looks as though Canada is the same as the UK.

Indeed it is. The British are known for eccentricity. The government won't spend money on doctors for anything someone a lot cheaper can do. :) 

That's very practical, but this 'a lot cheaper' sometimes means a really bad service. That's why we rather pay for an expansive visit to the doctor here. We believe that in 80% of the cases the paid doctor will make a better service -and it really happens. Despite we have a free public health system, it isn't very good at all. If you have something really serious, you can't depend on them, otherwise, you'll certainly die.

Oh good lord no - what a nightmare! I really just mean those inter-season ~let's send this character off to a scientific mission~ storylines that they did ever so often.

For example: With Amy she could have been offered to participate in some sort of study project somewhere far away as a result of her networking on that conference so she'll be away for about 3 months (or however long the hiatus til S10 is). Since she and Sheldon are so close right now there could be some minor drama about whether or not she should go but ultimately ends with her accepting the offer and Sheldon supporting it. Then the writers could take it into two directions:

1) Sheldon stays behind and misses her terribly. Maybe the writers even have Lenny move out so the summer could be him living alone for a while. And ultimately this experience has him determined that he wants Amy to live with him. Cue S10 premiere with Amy returning, a big shippy reunion with hugs, kisses and the whole shebang - and him asking her to move in!

2) Since Amy being away for that conference was already bad enough Sheldon decides to take a sabbatical leave and come with her. President Siebert (does he still run the place??!) throws a party and Lenny move out over the summer. Cue S10 premiere with Amy and Sheldon returning together. When they enter 4A it's half empty! [dramatic music]

Just to throw some ideas out.

I like the first idea. But please, no drama, April! We suffered a lot for 10 episodes (11 if you coun' the season 8 finale and 12 if you count the hiatus as a big-desperating-overwhelming-mindblowing-suffocating-full-of-wishful-thinking-and-pessimism episode to the fans). It was too much trauma.
But yeah, the finale might be about living arrangements, engagement or something related to Bernie's pregnancy (something I wouldn't expect but it can happen, why not?).

Hey, I said "minor drama" for a reason! lol But mostly it would be a story line about them dealing with possible career changes and planning their future together, to quote Amy from the Mars episode. I really would love to see that kind of plot for them, especially if it involves Amy's career cause as @wowbagger said earlier in the thread it would be nice to see her commitment to Sheldon put to the test but at the same time she's valuing her career so there's a nice story conflict for her character. It would be great to see them deal with these challenges as a couple that go beyond Sheldon's personal issues. And a summer hiatus trip is long enough to make it somewhat meaningful, but short enough to not affect the show's DNA since most of that would be happening off-screen anyway.

But as said, that's just me having some fun with this idea cause right now we don't seem to have much else to do here. I'm not sure how likely this particular idea will be, probably not much.

Have you read Science of Love? It's very good and lengthy. Concession is awesome. I think it's my favorite. Also anything by hazelra7. She rocks!

it's the English spoken in England and Wales that's my mother-tongue. I am not familiar with all the words they use in American programmes.

I know what you mean.

Like this line from The Friendship Contraction:-

Amy: I’m sorry, Sheldon, I’m busy. I’m right in the middle of my addiction study. I’ve got a lab full of alcoholic monkeys, and tomorrow’s the day we switch them to O’Doul’s.

I'd never heard of O’Doul’s but, having got the spelling from the script, I Googled it, and discovered it is low/no alcohol beer, rather like Kaliber, the low/no alcohol beer we have in the UK.

Likewise, this exchange from The Spoiler Alert Segmentation:-

Leonard: Oh, could you clear off a shelf for me in the bathroom? I take a lot of medicine.

Penny: Oh, please let some of it be Xanax.

I'd never heard of Xanax, before I heard it mentioned on TBBT.

I do love your ideas for proposals.

How about he proposes, during a live FWF episode?

I am hoping that it goes the way you imagine wowbagger and it doesn't involve a cliffhanger with a job offer that includes relocation or something along the lines of that ...

That sounds like a fanfic I read, a while back.

Random drunk thought I had last night when I got home from the bar, I actually wrote it down so I wouldn't forget it, lol, do you all think that Bernie and Penny showed Amy the YouTube video of Sheldon's Chancellor's Award For Science acceptance speech from The Pant Alternative?

Probably not. But it would be very good!

So what's on everyone's Shamy wish list for the rest of the season? 

I'd like Shamy to be caught/overheard having sex (and for one or both to be noisy), so Leonard and Penny get a dose of their own medicine, or, to put it in Sheldon speak:-

Payback, it truly is the B word, isn’t it? :laugh: 

I'd also like a Shamy proposal, and for Sheldon to buy a car, and reclaim space 294.

Something silly related to St. Patrick's Day! 

Nothing heavy for the rest of the season, light fun. Let's see how date night has changed maybe, keep it simple.

im actually good with developing the other character plots since season 9 has been Shamy heavy with the drama. Whatever they have Shamy doing I want to see them continuing to be a union with an "us against the world" partnership

I'd like for them to continue this way for the rest of the season. Sheldon is more open to express his feelings in his own quirky way, Amy is more open to accept him and she is assertive in the relationship. I like this version of Shamy, they are happier than ever and you can see it even in their moves; they smile much more than they used to do (I think in the first part of the season I saw Amy smiling 2 times, that sad face didn't agree with her at all), there is casual touching and they both make nice things for the other, like the asteroid, FwF, the two amazing birthdays they have organized. I  want to see something more about their everyday life, like them having breakfast together or Amy sleeping in Sheldon's room. Another thing I would like is an episode about Amy's family, I want Sheldon to interact with Amy's mother and maybe having a taste of his own medicine, with the woman angry at him for some reason (maybe because he doesn't want to marry Amy, that would be gold!) As for the "big" stuff, engagement or living arrangements, I'm not sure they will arrive this season. It was a really "huge" season for TBBT in general, so many things are changing, so maybe they will slow down a little. So I prefer to hold on my expectations and be surprised if those things happen. I hope, anyway, that the times of "pushing" and "frustrated" Amy are gone, so I hope Amy will not be disappointed by Sheldon taking his time to make up his mind, she now appears to be truly happy, and that's how I want her to be.

Perfect! Especially the bold :)

I'd like to see one of these double meaning sittuations, like Amy saying "Push it, Sheldon, push it!", Leonard and Penny with stunned/shocked looks on their faces, but turns out they're just trying to keep a sleeping bag or something simillar.

I really just want them to be goofy dorks in love doing goofy science things and sometimes serious science things together while being a couple without the pressure and stress of everything that's happened. And maybe them doing things that are traditionally domestic in their non-traditional ways (until perhaps it's a year later and whoops we're accidentally living together now and also we've got these mice because you guys are terrible tests subjects and we named them Eve and Irene).

 

ETA: IDK I don't want Amy to propose because I don't think it would be handled well in light of their past. That's really the one thing I personally don't want.

Or the five times the gang overheard something that wasn't innocent at all -and the one time it was-
Can someone list more situations like this? 'Cause this is hilarious.

30 second promo of next week's episode. I like Leonard's response to Sheldon's vasectomy comment lol

 

-Sheldon, you don't fool me. You don't want a vasectomy. You wanna help to transform Amy's eggs in a cute baby girl named Rajeshannah/Rajeshellen/Rajeshillary (since USA is in the presidential vibe) or a beautiful boy named Rajesharry Potter.
-Too bad there is no singing at the promo. :(
