I made... a Sarah Connor Chronicles Christmas tree. Why? Well, I had this metal tree, see. Metal. It's actually a very old tree (40+ years old, I think). It belonged to my grandmother and my mom gave it to me when I first moved away from home. I used it for a few years because it's unique and because it held such fond memories for me, but I've had it boxed up on a shelf in my basement for years now.

After setting up my normal Christmas tree this year, that little old aluminum tree popped into my head for some reason. And since I'm a big freaking dork for TSCC, I naturally put "metal tree" and "Sarah Connor" together (it was a eureka moment in the nerdiest possible way). So I set about making little TSCC-themed ornaments from poster board, construction paper, aluminum foil and various odds and ends around my house.

Merry Christmas TSCC fans!



What you'll find on the tree:

- HK/drone
- savethescc stickers
- bullets & shotgun shells
- a turtle (Sarah's dreams)
- one of Savannah's duckings (Chicky, Fluffy or Feathers, take your pick!)
- shotgun
- Glock
- endo head (based on my pumpkin carving pattern)
- the Turk
- Wizard of Oz book
- nuclear missile (Ok, so it's just a generic GI Joe missile, but you can pretend it's nuclear, right?)
- 2 multi-sided dice (I didn't have a 20-sided die, sadly)
- Cameron's chip (it's one of the flash drives)
- Presidio Alto emblem
- block of C4 w/timer
- drum of radioactive waste from Serrano Point
- queen chess piece
- Andy Goode's Kramnik vs Deep Fritz poster
- the Polaroid of Sarah
- pancakes
- notebook paper w/3 dots
- shard of aluminum from a soda can
- a terminator endoskeleton

I think that's everything.

HAHHAHA Roxy you are EPIC!! Just hope that Sarah doesn't find out and destroy you ~metal Tree. She's not a huge fan of the stuff.

*contemplates how she can turn her tree into a Seeker tree....*

METAL!!!!!!!!! Hee. Yeah, Sarah's not to fond of the metal. Neither is my cat, apparently; he already knocked the metal tree over!

Seeker tree... LOL. Maybe this will be the new thing in fandom: themed Christmas trees :D

Thank you :) Who knew TSCC could be so festive? And there's definitely no vanilla in those pancakes. They actually turned out pretty good considering there was no recipe :P

No respectable TSCC Christmas tree would be without a Sarah polaroid ;)

It totally is insane. You should be glad cj2017 sticks to fic writing ;)

Yeah, cos we never do anything fandom-crazy *hides Lena Birthday card and evidence of Bug!Slug/Weevil cakes* ;-)

The tree is truly magnificent. I think I love the tiny but perfect Wizard of Oz the most. The fact that you have tied ribbons around your guns is slightly concerning however...

How could I forget about TSCC-themed birthday cakes?!

LOL

Sometimes I think your nerdiness rivals mine.

I would like to think so ;-) I'm betting not many people got a fic-inspired mac and cheese birthday cake this year *g*

Oh, guns under the tree was the man's idea (rest assured, they're all locked up safe and sound again). I love how much he accepts the insanity of my Sarah Connor fandom.

There are no words for how much I adore this particular brand of craziness. :D The Turk! Cameron's chip! The pancakes.

I am in awe. ♥

Who even needs words when you can make TSCC ornaments? Maybe I should patent this brand of craziness? LOL.

This show ate my brain.

I don't blame you. I'm sad it's just for Christmas! I think I'll set it up again next year and make more ornaments for it :)

LOL! That's awesome! What a great use for one of those old aluminum Christmas trees.

Have a Merry Christmas!

You made my day. Well, you, your tree and the awesome Christmas Eve feast that the woman orchestrated for my family.

Merry Christmas to you, the man, and the kitteh, from us, the freshly washed water-dog, and the evil bunny.

Fantastic as always Roxy. I'm doing a blu-ray re-watch this holiday season too, so it's been on my mind.

Merry Christmas to you and your family, it's been a joy getting to know you and our mutual patho-obsession with TSCC over the past few years. Enjoy your holiday!

Three cheers for a rewatch!

Merry Christmas to you too. I can't even express how nice it is to have so many TSCC friends to share this kind of silly fandom stuff with. I love you guys :)

O Tannen-john-baum!
Great job, as usual!

(Where on earth does one obtain an actual polaroid of SC and the shepherd? I stand in awe of your resourcefulness!)

So you're assuming that the tree is in fact *not* from The Future?

I mean, a Bubble Tech could have covered the branches and needles with live anchovies, and...

:-)

Re: O Tannen-john-baum!
^ Your subject line is total win!

It's not a real polaroid. I printed out a screen shot of it, cut out the image and glued it to a large piece of poster board to simulate the picture ;)

LOL. I... haven't considered that possibility.
