Because it's easier to ask you guys than to look stuff up on my own.  
1. How long does a member of the Grey Council serve?  Is it for life?

2. In what episode does Delenn tell the story about getting lost and having, like, Valen or something chill with her in a temple?  (I know she's telling the story to someone, but I'm pretty sure it's not John, and beyond that, I have no memory of this place of this scene.

Truthful Admissions: Sometimes when I'm getting stuck on a fairly minor point of canon, I just change what I'm writing instead of hunt the information down, or if I do hunt it down and it's contrary to what I had thought.  But not in this case.

ETA: All questions answered!

Hi!! (and sorry por my english :P )

1_ I think it is for life. But they can be expulsed .... and is a disgrace (deshonor?). Maybe the members can also retaired

2_ "Confessions and Lamentations" delenn say the story of the temple a markab child.

bye :)

1. Agreed. Think it's for life. But don't know how they deal with such problems as madness, illness and so on.
2. Pausita is absolutely right and very quick :) In order to save your time, the scene begins at 0:33:51 in the timeline

It seems that it is going to be very canonical chapter of "Alma Mater" story ))

I've so been there! I once has someone completely freak out at me because I used our days of the week in a BSG drabble. In fairness to me, they use English for everything else in the series and it's not like the names of the days of the week are ever mentioned!

I sent you a PM about this because LJ was being stupid today, but my answers echo everyone else's. :)
