[Spoilers] Shamy: Season 9

Recommended Posts

I happen to agree with you but don't bite a person's head off. It is his/her opinion and they should feel comfortable expressing it. This goes for everyone here. I may not agree with all the opinions here but I try to respect them without being mean. No I am not trying to start anything. I just want our forum to be one where we can sometimes agree to disagree without fear is all. Sent from my SM-G920V using Tapatalk

yep your right which is why I said "no offense" and like some have said on here, it's hard to "get" the persons tone when it's in writing.  

DoctorWhat (I love that name btw, lol), apologies if that response came off too bitchy but I just don't see how the writers could have Sheldon willingly date someone else even if it's to make Amy jeoulous.  Been there, done that.

However, I do like the idea of some girl showing interest in him and he doesn't have a clue until someone tells him and he's like, "Oh, sorry.  I only want Amy."

I still think that a very funny thing would be a girl trying to get him to notice her / date her because she knows he's now single, while he'll still be Sheldon being Sheldon and not getting a thing. Amy seeing this and somehow hearing him tell the girl Amy's the only one he could ever love because Penny or Leonard had told him what the girl really wants.

Could be a key moment for Amy to rethink her break-up decision.

 

If they did that it would have to be someone, because every girl at Caltech will know what he's like.

I don't think they would go there with Sheldon dating someone else. Maybe Amy. But I would still hate that. IMO.... They are not going to go there at all. That this will be a push pull situation with a resolution by November. But I don't practice Santeria I ain't got no crystal ball. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

The New Beginning Experiment

Oh yes I've also read a few chapters of that one but didn't keep up with it. I have to agree that the author is very talented and writes well but I dislike how the characters end up so OOC that I can't recognise them anymore. I could say the same thing for The Chaos Cognizance which is very well-written by a talented author but at one point I just couldn't recognise the characters anymore. I found that both Sheldon and Amy became way too sentimental. With that said they're both fanfics so there's no problem there. 

However, I sure hope Sheldon stays true to his quirky, pragmatic and endearingly unconventional self after he and Amy reconcile. I mean I'd like them to be just little bit more openly affectionate with each other but still save onscreen kisses for special occasions. I'd rather not see Sheldon become a horndog whenever he and Amy are in the same room. :icon_neutral:

I've been staying away from the FF lately.  I have enough trouble with my own. Keeping Sheldon quirky and unconventional is exhausting.  I know how Amy feels.

Maybe the writers also sometimes have trouble in keeping Sheldon Sheldony :icon_razz: He's such a unique being after all.

Omg yes... I read and write fan fic... It is a bit of an addiction really. It is so hard to keep Sheldon... Well Sheldon! If he does not do something OOC then the story gets stagnant. Sometimes you got to make that boy do something crazy with only for your own amusement. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

There is another FF where Amy had "her first time" with another man, then she married that man  and Sheldon ended being like a robot! Of course it is a FF but I don´t liked it at all, because SHAMY was destroyed for ever!

I was doing quite well until chapter five.  That's been re-written so many times it's beyond a joke.

Yes. Chaos was the one I was talking about. And I agree with all you've said. Fanfic Shamy,or real Shamy.

I find it to be the opposite. Writing Sheldon comes fairly easily to me, it's Amy that I struggle to pin down, because I find that her characterization fluctuates a lot on the show that it's hard to pinpoint. I find that I stick closer to S4/5 Amy, probably because that's the one that had the biggest impact on how I look at her as a character.

Well if you ever want someone to look over it send me a PM I am always happy to help a shamy. Koops season 4-5 Amys is boring to write with. Sometimes I will start her out like that but generally I like season 7 Amy. Dreamy with a backbone. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

Dannii was doing it, but is on a bit of a down at the moment and I haven't heard back about the chapter five I finally sent over.  The first four chapters went down well, but I did hit the wall with chapter five for quite some time.

I find S6-7 Amy rather watered down. She's most of the time written like a regular girl in a relationship with an exasperating weirdo, especially in S6. S7 is better. Also, S4 and 5 Amy was arrogant as hell, and did have a backbone. I think S6 Amy was the backbone-less one. S8 Amy I think is the best compromise: she's evolved enough to be her own character and I guess their relationship is at a stage where you can do more with without straying too far from canon, and at the same time her nerdy streak from S4-5 was back, so there's lots of fun to be had with that. But I haven't been writing anything since S8 started, so I haven't had a stab at this version yet.

Now I say this as someone who had had ideas for stories but never really got down to putting it out there.   I would think that S4-5 Amy would be so much more fun to write because get quirkiness was so much more in display.   I find S7 Amy to be more on the boring side and less unique.   Which is why her characterization in S8 was so welcome.   

Anyway,  if the characters are OOC it just pulls me out if the story.   I instance understand taking liberties to write your story but to me I feel it had to be a normal progression I feel the characters would make.  These stories seem to become more fantasy of how people wish the characters were than a representation of who they are.   Not my cup of tea,  but hey,  it is fan fiction and it wonderful creative outlet.

It's honestly not the situation that makes character IC/OOC for me. If the way character found himself/herself in some situation is in logic with his motivation/back story and his reactions are in sync of how he/she would react again based on characteristic from the show, than I have no problem with anything really. Feel free to put Sheldon in the middle of Mexico desert, basket of puppies, no pants. 

Where that example came from? :icon_lol:

So sorry I forget that you are in fact not in my head and can not read between my lines. Season 6 Amy is the back boneless Amy that I was referring to. I season 7 and 8 are the same only in season 8 she seems vaguely dissatisfied with their relationship in the end hence my penchant for season 7 Amy. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

Yes well I meant more like he takes Amy against the hood of her car in a parking garage. Be damned who may see them. Or he shows up at her door filled with flowery comments and gravitas. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

I have never written any fanfiction so I can't help but respect those who are able to write so well (some even better than the actual writers of the show :icon_razz:).

I think my favourite TBBT fanfic writer would be Angelic Guardian as she is able to keep the characters so IC and write wonderful addictive stories. I've also read a few fanfics of someone called Hazelra7 (I think) and I find that she's very talented and creative as well but often depicts the characters in an OOC way (like Sheldon is too sentimental and horny and Bernie is too mean)...

Sheldon and sex can be a problem, because you want to show that he does have interest now, but he often comes across as too horny. It's finding the balance.

Yeah, this to me will never be IC for Sheldon no matter how you try to get him there.   I think the way Sheldon shows romance on the show is endearing than watching or reading some clichéd and unrealistic romance novel version of him.  But,  I find that type of stuff off putting anyway.   

But everyone has their own tastes.  Luckily,  the show does a pretty good job of showcasing the type of romance I enjoy seeing.
