ariestess: Okay, so scifi and fantasy…
Jaely: I don’t post on P&P now because I don’t have a beta so all my stuff now goes up on FFN http://www.fanfiction.net/~jaely
geekgrrllurking: These are the voyages of the Sci Fi panel, to boldly go where no panel has gone before…
the_dhamphir: I’m here for that one too. So for those of you who haven’t already heard this… I’m Dhamphir, and I write for X-Files, SG-1, and have tested the waters with Bird of Prey.
ariestess: I’m doing double duty tonight, both here and in the other room. But I’ve written a whole bunch of scifi and fantasy fandoms.
Aquila1nz: sff is the best!
ivanolix: Geek shoooooows
the_dhamphir: I agree aquila
Alkmaion: Welcome to ‘War of the Panels, huh? *g*
the_dhamphir: I love the freedom that SFF give me
Shatterpath: D- agreed
ariestess: Oh, 2 is nnothing. I was an active mod in panels in all 3 rooms in the same hour last year.
fsc_ralst: Oh, sci-fi
ariestess: *is hardcore*
ivanolix: I like the variety that SFF can add to femslash relationships. Modern or historical stuff has all this baggage, sometimes
Jaely: rock on AJ
synergyfox: My wife has me watching SG1 because apparently I’m a horrible geek who has yet to watch said show… does anyone ship ships of doom in ASoIaF?
the_dhamphir: To explore favorite characters and to have fun with the extraordinary.
ivanolix: *flails over ASOIAF*
Jaely: what is ASolaF?
geekgrrllurking: thanks D, I thought it was just me…
ivanolix: It’s the book series Game of Thrones was based on
the_dhamphir: please use words.. lol
synergyfox: A Song of Ice and Fire, it’s an epic fantasy series… er… what ivanolix said. XD
synergyfox: So much femslashy goodness
confuzzedly: song of Ice and Fire George RR Martin
ivanolix: It’s got a tiny femslash fandom which is SAD
synergyfox: Tiny but epic.
the_dhamphir: No. I generally don’t do fanfic for books
geekgrrllurking: Oh, it sounds interesting
the_dhamphir: mainly because i don’t read many of them.
fsc_ralst: book or show, the small fanfic group?
Jaely: There is only one book fan fic I write and that is HP
ivanolix: There’s also the show. Which adds 150% more subtext to be honest
synergyfox: Both the show and the book
ariestess: My book fandom to write in is Wicked.
synergyfox: The show and the book have fairly small femslash groups… oooh Wicked.
ivanolix: Is there a book fandom for Wicked?
geekgrrllurking: so do you recommend the show more or both @syn
Shatterpath: My best SFF is from a role-playing system i guarantee no one ahs heard of
fsc_ralst: Cersei needs more scenes with adult females, because Lena always brings the subtext
ariestess: I’ve heard of it!
fsc_ralst: @iva yes
synergyfox: I personally recommend both the show and the book series. Both are excelent.
ivanolix: I ship Cersei with EVERYONE
Alkmaion: Hm…a Song of Isles and Fire, perhaps?
Jaely: Whitewolf Shatter?
fsc_ralst: Cersei is amazing, so flawed, but amazing
ivanolix: Actually I ship all the girls with all the girls in Game of Thrones/A Song of Ice and Fire. It’s one of my super shippy fandoms
synergyfox: Of course Lena brings all the subtext to everything ralst… everything… there is no possible way to have her in something and not have her bring subtext to the floor.
Shatterpath: JAely- No, but I have a damn good crossover with CSINY and WhiteWolf I should finish one day
synergyfox: Everyone’s pretty damned flawed in that series. It’s why I love them all so very much.
fsc_ralst: @synergy totally agree
synergyfox: *flails over white wolf*
ariestess: Yes, Doggie, you SHOULD finish it.
geekgrrllurking: Yes, Doggie, you should!
geekgrrllurking: ack stop that AJ
ariestess: Brainshare with the geek!
Shatterpath: Ponies first, dammit!
Shatterpath: I have to get those technicolor buggers OUT of my head
Jaely: it was a guess Shatter you sent me the CSI/white wolf one which I love btw
synergyfox: Allll the ponies
ivanolix: I ship Twilight Sparkle and Rainbow Dash. Hard.
Shatterpath: I am a rare disliker of Dash
alannasky: meow i would love to stay for this chat…but getting way tired and body is hurting…i hope i can see u all guys tomorrow…all i need to know is if this is going to be recorded and put on web and if so, which website
Shatterpath: she annoys me the same way Tony DiNozzo does
fsc_ralst: Erm, drag queens?
ariestess: me, too. Dash is annoying.
synergyfox: @ivanolix of course you ship them. You are TS and I am RD
ivanolix: I don’t like Dash personally but I think she’s perfect for Twilight
tristianmakhai: It is so weird having been a kid that had MLP, to see it 20 years later emerging as a major femslash fandom.
Shatterpath: I’m a die hard Twi and Applejack
synergyfox: @ralst *perks up* Drag Queens are sexy, what about drag queens?
ivanolix: Actually I ship a lot of things where I don’t like one of the characters. Is that weird?
synergyfox: Nope! Hate!Sex
ariestess: @alanna :: The transcripts will be on femslashday.com, but give us a couple of weeks to get everything ready.
fsc_ralst: Sparkles and Rainbows, wondering if they’re drag queen names?
tristianmakhai: Nah, it’s like being friends with one half of a couple: one is a friend, the other becomes something tolerable when they treat that friend well.
Jaely: I’m lost on the Dash too…
Otakugamer01: same here raslt
Shatterpath: I fell hard for Applejack, because I’m most like her and found the nerdy unicorn to be teh best match
Shatterpath: *laughs at Ralst*
geekgrrllurking: Question for the panel, do you prefer writing sci fi or fantasy?
synergyfox: @ralst while they would be perfect drag names – no they’re short for Twilight Sparkle and Rainbow Dash.
Shatterpath: oh, geek, you silly. BOTH
the_dhamphir: I lean more toward sci fi i think, geek
Otakugamer01: which are who/what now?
ariestess: Both. Though my original fic is leaning toward fantasy.
Shatterpath: it’s a cartoon on The Hub
fsc_ralst: @synergy, and they’re not drag queens? sorry never heard of them
ariestess: If I ever get that bitch tamed.
alannasky: okay thanks ariestess…i will see u tomorrow…good night everyone….stargate sg1…sam/doctor…..fan of twilight and fluttershy
Shatterpath: it’s a decedant and shameful secret many share
synergyfox: @ralst no, no… they’re only in drag when rarity dresses them up.
synergyfox: IT IS NOT SHAMEFUL
Liberty Stewart: GeekG: Depends what I’m writing. Both kind of have their advantages.
synergyfox: Tame that bitch, tame it.
ivanolix: It is only shameful if you’re not in the fandom
ariestess: @synergyfox :: LOL!
alannasky: cannot make myself ship any of the characters
Jaely: I have to go with both as well
Shatterpath: I know, but it amuses me and makes me cringe how into this show I am
Jaely: they both have their good and bad points to write with
fsc_ralst: and the name of the show is?
the_dhamphir: Very true Jaely
geekgrrllurking: I think I lean to sci fi myself
synergyfox: @ralst my little pony
tristianmakhai: @Doggie: now you know how ever Sailormoon writer felt. 😛
synergyfox: @ralst… technically – My little pony friendship is magic
the_dhamphir: I consider X-Files and Bird of Prey sci fi, but they also have fantasy elements
pbandfluff: Nothin wrong with bronies and pegasises. Pegasisi? Pegasis’? However the plural goes.
Shatterpath: stupid name, awesome show
fsc_ralst: Okay… moves a step back
geekgrrllurking: @ralst be afraid, lol
synergyfox: I love writing fantasy
synergyfox: @ralst watch a few eps and you will be CONSUMED with brony feels
ariestess: "Pegasi are NOT Pegasissies."
ariestess: Thank you, Rainbow Dash.
ivanolix: Fantasy fits with my sense of creativity more. Sci-fi confuses me sometimes
yurianimeotaku: @Shatterpath There is a femslash fandom for My Little Pony?
synergyfox: AHHH scary emoticon
fsc_ralst: I’ve written more sci-fi, kinda, but I think I prefer to read fantasy
the_dhamphir: when i think of fantasy, i think of shows like LoTS.
geekgrrllurking: Yes @D I’d say the same for several of the sci fi shows, there are fantasy elements in them
Liberty Stewart: Fantasy would also include Buffy/Angel.
ivanolix: Fantasy has sexier settings/styles, I’ve found. Porn is more fun to write in fantasy, lol
fsc_ralst: *looks for exit*
confuzzedly: lost girl is fantasy.
tristianmakhai: I think Science Fiction can be a lot more intimidating because you have Hard Sci Fi with a MASSIVE amount of lore, and then Soft Sci Fi which seems to get a lot of grief. Fantasy, there is hard fantasy, but it seems a lot more forgiving to a writer.
synergyfox: @dhamphir i think of LotS and GoT/ASoIaF *nods lots*… but I’m still a LotSie soooo
ariestess: Would it be fantasy or supernatural?
pbandfluff: Would OUaT fall into fantasy, or…?
fsc_ralst: Legend of the Seeker, Xena etc
Shatterpath: yuri- Yes. Mostly written by young men. Which is squicky, I know, but I’m still cauight up in my own saga
ivanolix: Lost Girl is urban fantasy, LotS is high fantasy, Buffy is supernatural/horror
the_dhamphir: Yes, Lost GIrl and Buffy, and Xena, and Seeker… those are fantasy shows
Otakugamer01: OUaT fantasy for the magic aspect
Jaely: ohhh lost girl is fun! but I like getting into fan vids and graphics with that show
Shatterpath: i’m still waiting for inspiration from OUaT
ivanolix: Fantasy is just so *pretty* too. Hairporn and dressporn and corsets and horses. But then again sci-fi has uniform porn and gun porn… Ahhhh
Jaely: but I’m like that with nearlly all fandoms as I’m a graphic artist so I love getting into the art along with the writing
synergyfox: :3 My friend and I are writing an OUaT fic.. it’s at… 50k so far?
the_dhamphir: I have written a couple of ficlet for Lost Girl… one with Bo and Scully. lol
Shatterpath: Oooo! Jaely, I might have to hire you!
ariestess: @ivanolix :: YES!
fsc_ralst: Cara and Kahlan = best fight porn
geekgrrllurking: And I’ve tinkered with Scully and Oracle
the_dhamphir: I know geek.. *G*
pbandfluff: OUaT is like my crack. Ship ALL the females!
Jaely: I would love to do graphics for anyone that would want one
Liberty Stewart: I don’t know why, but I feel there’s more scifi in video games than either movies or TV. Or atleast recently.
shaych03: i love mixing and matching – sci fi with some fantasy and some steampunk tossed in for good measure
geekgrrllurking: which oddly enough made a really good crossover
ivanolix: Cara and Kahlan = best porn in general XD
the_dhamphir: I think it was my prompt
geekgrrllurking: same with SG1 and Battlestar Galactica
geekgrrllurking: Yes it was D and I will finish it, I swear
tristianmakhai: Research, for example, is a HELL of a lot more daunting for me when it comes to my science fiction projects, over the fantasy ones.
ariestess: @pb :: LOL! As long as Regina’s involved and there’s no incest or underage sex, I’m happy.
synergyfox: @ralst – what fight porn? That’s totally Mord’Sith foreplay, Cara has been teaching Kahlan the art of such things.
pbandfluff: @ari Yes! Yesyesyesyesyesyesyesyesyes.
the_dhamphir: Cara and Kahlan were made for each other!!
fsc_ralst: @syn Oh yeah
Jaely: trist, I agree the reasearch is a lot more daunting for Sci-Fi
synergyfox: @dhamphir Heh, I multiship in that fandom…
ariestess: @pb :: Though I admit I’m mainly a Swan Queen girl, I’m considering branching out for Regina.
ivanolix: Though research for BSG isn’t as hard. You can kind of bs your way through their "science" and sound geeky
fsc_ralst: Cara and Kahlan had so much subtext, even with Richard hanging around
the_dhamphir: I know. it’s why I recc’d you for the panel. *G*
pbandfluff: @ari Swan Queen, Red Queen, Snow Queen, Evil Princess, I swoon for them all, but Swan Queen holds my heart.
ariestess: @ivanolix :: So true re: BSG and their "science"
synergyfox: @ralst mwahaha, Cara gets introduced – Kahlan suddenly starts dressing up a bit more and showing off a lot more thigh… and side eye glances… and side boob glances…
ariestess: @pb :: Evil Princess?
Liberty Stewart: @ralst: Seeker also had a lot of maintext ever since Cara came on.
fsc_ralst: @syn Kahlan is a little hussy
pbandfluff: @ari Regina and Kathryn
Alkmaion: @ralst: that gives me the image of a hanged man, swinging in the wind *g*
ariestess: @pb :: *facehoof* Of course!
the_dhamphir: Yes. Cara is bi in canon
fsc_ralst: @alk lol
synergyfox: @ralst Bahahahhaa… … wait! @ivanolix didn’t you do a whore!kahlan?
the_dhamphir: as is Bo in lost girl
ariestess: @pb :: I’m even going so far as to rewrite "The Stable Boy" where Daniel is really Danielle.
ivanolix: @syn Yup
synergyfox: @ivanolix… i need to reread that
pbandfluff: @ari I’ve read a few stories going in that vein and I really like the idea. I eagerly await your version.
ivanolix: I need to write more in that universe. I spent a lot of work on developing that AU and so far all I’ve written is a oneshot porn
synergyfox: Yes… yes you do…
synergyfox: er @ivanolix
ariestess: @pb :: It’s part of the onceuponabang stories that I’m doing. Should be out in August?
synergyfox: Ah… the glory of ao3… I just have to skim past your 63 lots fics… clearly you need to write 6 more
pbandfluff: @ari Yay! Then I will sit here consumed with impatience until then. 😛
the_dhamphir: What is your all time favorite SFF pairing?
Otakugamer01: i’m finally trying my hand at writing, it’s an AU OUaT fic I’ve been slooowly fiddling with it and i’m 4 chapters in, many to go, but I have a clear idea where I want this fic to go, and yes it’s swan queen
ivanolix: Choosing a favorite pairing is like choosing a favorite child. I refuse.
the_dhamphir: @ ivanolix LOL
ariestess: Alex/Rachel and Susan/Talia are my top two.
Alkmaion: I don´t have a child. I do *g*
ariestess: Followed closely by Swan Queen and Troi/Crusher.
Liberty Stewart: I can’t even choose a fave movie or series let alone a pairing.
the_dhamphir: I’d have to go with Sam/Janet
synergyfox: @dhamphir D: I’m a multishipper, I can’t do that! I love them all… granted I prefer like… Dahlia/Cara or Cara/Kahlan over like… Garen/Kahlan… but like… every fandom… CANNOT DO THAT… that’s naughty.
Alkmaion: Susan/Lyta from B5.
fsc_ralst: Old school Xena/Gabrielle
Jaely: yay for Susan/Talia! that is what got me into the world of FF to begin with YEARS ago
geekgrrllurking: hard to pick just one, Ruth/Jaime Bionic woman, Sam/Janet SG1, and Xena/Gabrielle
Otakugamer01: i start listing them and it’s a LONG list but i keep shuffling the order depending on my mood
ariestess: It was Troi/Crusher for me, but there’s something really visceral about Susan/Talia. Plus it was, y’know, canon.
synergyfox: Ah… whore!Kahlan… found you…
geekgrrllurking: ooh, forgot Swan Queen too
Shatterpath: *sighs dreamily over Ruth*
michelle_2011: I agree I like several apirings
pbandfluff: Bering and Wells, Swan Queen, Cara/Kahlan, J7, Xena/Gabrielle, and so on and so on.
the_dhamphir: Does anyone know if there’s new B5 fic being written?
ariestess: I’m doing what I can with B5 fic…
fsc_ralst: didn’t you post one the other day aj?
Liberty Stewart: Surprised no one mentioned Lena Headey Connor yet.
ariestess: I just did a full series rewatch with my nephew last month.
geekgrrllurking: @Doggie, Ruth is dreamy all right
the_dhamphir: as B5 or as LWM?
Alkmaion: @ralst: Heh, reminds me of a 2Broke girld’ moment of ‘old schooling it’ *g*
ariestess: @ralst :: Um…
shaych03: writing b5 is so very hard because i so much appreciate what JMS accomplished, story wise
geekgrrllurking: Oh, yeah @Lib, TSCC is a good sci fi one too
ariestess: @D :: I don’t have B5 in LWM.
ariestess: @ralst :: I"m trying to remember if I’ve posted B5 fic recently…
fsc_ralst: @aj I thought you did because I made an obviously translucent mental note to go back and read after Con
Liberty Stewart: I must’ve missed it but what does LWM stand for?
Alkmaion: Well, I would have loved to have Susan lead the resistance instead of Sheridan, no disrespect to JMS…
the_dhamphir: Do you think SFF tends to have more longevity than other genres?
ivanolix: TSCC had some really good femslash potential, yes. I miss that show so much
ariestess: @ralst :: There was one in the calendar that Susan P wrote. Maybe that’s what you’re thinking of?
ariestess: @Lib :: LWM is Light, Water, Muses — a HUGE multi-series AU that Shatterpath and I have been writing since late 2000.
Shatterpath: It’s awsome and MASSIVE
Shatterpath: gotta finish posting that too….
Liberty Stewart: What fandom is Light Water Muses centered on?
fsc_ralst: @aj maybe
the_dhamphir: what fandom isn’t in it. LOL
ariestess: @Lib :: It depends on what part of the universe you’re in. There are 30+ fandoms included in the whole thing.
Shatterpath: Hey, all of you, so that we don’t take over this panel again, if you’re MLP fans, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can group up for mutual support after the con. Okay? Spraed the word!
fsc_ralst: Maybe SFF ages better, as it’s never ‘now’, so that helps it stay current?
ariestess: It started with SG1 and teh simple idea of "What would it be like if the SGC had a K9 unit.
Shatterpath: D has it right about LWM. There are over 30 fandoms in it
the_dhamphir: Could be, Ralst
geekgrrllurking: earlier today we were talking about Alien4 femslash, are there other sff film femslash out there that the panel enjoys?
Shatterpath: I like the challenge of crossovers appearantly. IT takes brainsweat to do it right
Liberty Stewart: In that case who are crossovers done in LWM? Does everyone live in the same universes or do you have a method of bringing characters together?
fsc_ralst: Resident Evil
the_dhamphir: I usually don’t get into fandom for movies.
Liberty Stewart: @Shatter: what does MLP stand for? Must’ve missed that one too.
ariestess: It’s all the same universe. And we literally have some doubles and triples.
geekgrrllurking: although sg1 started as film, right?
ivanolix: I need a series to get attached to characters. Single movies aren’t enough.
Jaely: I’m not sure I don’t get into film fandoms…
the_dhamphir: yes, but it was the show that got me interested
confuzzedly: HP of course..
geekgrrllurking: ah, good point, lol
ivanolix: Twilight femslash is pretty good >_>
the_dhamphir: There weren’t any women of note in the Stargate movie
Jaely: Well I base my HP writings on the book not the movies
synergyfox: @liberty I’m not shatter but My Little Pony is MLP..
synergyfox: Hey I like Twilight femslash…
synergyfox: And still need to finish writing my HP femslash… shite.
Liberty Stewart: @synergy: I’ll pass then.
the_dhamphir: I tried Twilight femslash, but just couldn’t get around the image of on screen bella
confuzzedly: @Jaely – good point lot of the movies are book/comics based
ivanolix: OH. Snow White and the Huntsman. Hngh.
synergyfox: hnnghn SWatH…
ivanolix: Also I sort of RPF Charlize/Kristen *guilty*
ariestess: And I’ll leave my PtL love in its little corner of the femslash world.
geekgrrllurking: HP femslash is easier to read now that Hermione has grown up in RL
synergyfox: @dhamphir that might be it. I like Kristen Stewart now.
the_dhamphir: I’m still not a KS fan
the_dhamphir: so it’s hard
synergyfox: @geek it’s still hard to write it when people demand you write sexyteims with a fourteen year old Hermione and I’m like… >_<
the_dhamphir: of course I haven’t seen Snow White yet
synergyfox: brb kitties in bad things
Shatterpath: @ Liberty- Sorry, i’m a little behind!
Liberty Stewart: Question for anyone. Does anyone remember a single scifi movie with a canon lesbian/bi?
the_dhamphir: I agree synergy. I’m not into teenage smexy times
geekgrrllurking: Mostly why I don’t read much HP fic @syn
Jaely: Oh I write a lot of HP but I never write a sex scene until they are at least 17… otherwise it’s a bit squicky for me…
the_dhamphir: The HP stuff I read has Hermoine as an adult
pbandfluff: I’ve always preferred by HP fic to be of age, so yeah, no squicks.
the_dhamphir: I just relate better when they’re adults
ivanolix: @liberty I’m trying but I can’t thnk of one
synergyfox: @liberty … … I can’t recall one… at least one that was good enough to note…
geekgrrllurking: @D me too, especially since Emma cut her hair shorter, she seems older now
confuzzedly: not scifi but The Hunger (fantasy)
confuzzedly: had canon lesbian pairing
Liberty Stewart: I’m trying too, but it’s damn hard. Okay scifi movie or TV series then.
ariestess: @lib :: I’m sure there was one, but not recalling any atm.
the_dhamphir: Yes, it did @ confuzz
Jaely: I can’t thik of any SciFi that had one…
geekgrrllurking: lost girls bo is canon bi
ivanolix: BSG had Helena/Gina
the_dhamphir: Do you think having a canon lesbian or bi character in a show or movie leads to more or less femslash fic?
pbandfluff: Warehouse 13 has female HG Wells as bi.
fsc_ralst: Can’t think of a film either — that’s depressing
Liberty Stewart: Hunger Games had canon lesbians? Which book? @Geekg: Lost Girl is fantasy though.
Jaely: Dax/Kahn were only a one shot… unfortunatly
synergyfox: @dhamphir I think it depends on how the couple is portrayed…
ivanolix: Warehouse 13 is a weird mix of fantasy and…steampunk? scifi?
confuzzedly: yea *sigh*
fsc_ralst: D – depends on the show and the chemistry
synergyfox: @dhamphir ignoreee that… I need to learn to read
ivanolix: I tend to find canon pairings boring but others don’t *shrugs*
ariestess: As much as I loved Dax/Kahn, it was a copout.
Liberty Stewart: Okay this is why scifi has no femslash following.
Jaely: Lost girl is one but it’s not film or did we move onto tv as well as film?
fsc_ralst: sci-fi has huge femslash following
confuzzedly: I agree.. why I put the question mark – it was annoying/sad
the_dhamphir: There aren’t as many women in the SFF as men, I think
synergyfox: I thought scifi had an epic femslash following… >_>
the_dhamphir: characters, I mean
ariestess: @synergy :: I did, too.
ivanolix: I don’t agree with that @dhampir
Liberty Stewart: @dhamphir: Depends how much they give us. If it’s Legend of Seeker level, would probably be more fics. If it’s Bitch Slap level, fics not necessary.
yurianimeotaku: What’s the difference between Fantasy, Paranormal, and Speculative?
fsc_ralst: you can say that for most types shows, except soaps
the_dhamphir: But when they’re there, I think their following does well.
docwho2100: Sticky FIngers of Time as a movie
ariestess: Paranormal has paranormal aspects. Like X-Files, Angel, Buffy, Poltergeist: the Legacy…
Otakugamer01: lol we love the ladies of sci-fi..it’s just those ladies(characters) don’t so we *sigh* as always use subtext
synergyfox: Eh, it depends on how much the actors put into their characters. I mean if they’re flat, I’m not gonna ship them with anyone… if they’re an onion… I’ll ship them with everyone.
confuzzedly: paranormal also gets shapechangers & vampires
synergyfox: many layers.
ariestess: Wait! Layered… Got it.
the_dhamphir: I also like adding layer when exploring a character like Scully
synergyfox: Like, for example. Cara is an onion. Ivanolix is an onion. I can’t think of many non-onions atm… that won’t insight rage.
fsc_ralst: aren’t paranomal and whatever the other one was just subtets of fantasy?
the_dhamphir: In my mind, yes, ralst
confuzzedly: yea paranormal is subset of fantasy
ariestess: I used to think that Lochley from B5 was a non-onion. The rewatch showed me she’s got a couple layers.
Liberty Stewart: Oh right, scifi does have a large femslash following but mostly in TV though.
synergyfox: Denna is an onion.
Jaely: well I doubt many would remember the non-onion charcaters really
synergyfox: that’s… usually what happens with non-onion characters. They’re forgettable.
confuzzedly: Scully seems to get used in more x-overs than any other character..
synergyfox: Like… we saw Prometheus… there are a few non-onions in there. Not going further into it so’s not to spoil of course (epic femslashing hnnnnghn)
the_dhamphir: That becuase there weren’t other women to pair her with until the last season
ivanolix: Padme from Star Wars is pretty non-onion
the_dhamphir: Scully is a wonderful character.
fsc_ralst: Was Prometheus any good? Want to go and see it
synergyfox: @ralst Yesss, so worth my monies.
ariestess: I agree re: Padma.
ivanolix: Prometheus was amazing!
fsc_ralst: puts it to top of my cinema list
synergyfox: Yeah… I’m of the same opinion for Padma… I just liked to look at her.
Liberty Stewart: I liked Prometheus though overall people feel mixed about it.
confuzzedly: totally agree @dhamp – also think she was so wonderfully acted that it’s kind of easy to put her in other universes.
synergyfox: I don’t think there was much of tha tmovie I didn’t enjoy, there were even people for me to ship.
the_dhamphir: @ confuzz: I know I enjoy it *G*
Liberty Stewart: Anyone from Star Wars prequel has the dimensions of a cardboard cutout.
confuzzedly: love your x-vers
synergyfox: What… you mean like Bastilla Shan and what not? @liberty
the_dhamphir: I haven’t done a lot, but I do enjoy them.
Jaely: I tend to just add my own layers to Padme…. I have a whole notebook with stories about her…
fsc_ralst: So much talk of crossovers this Con, I never knew they were so popular
the_dhamphir: I tend to go with OFC’s more though, for Scully
synergyfox: I love a well-thought-out crossover.
ariestess: If I do the lighthouse story, it’ll be both Scully/Reyes and Scully/OFC.
ivanolix: I don’t think I’ve ever found a crossover I really liked @ralst
the_dhamphir: But the bulk of the Scully slash I read had OFCs
Liberty Stewart: BTW speaking of Scully, what are people’s views on Family Guy’s comments about her turning out to be true?
the_dhamphir: don’t watch family guy….
the_dhamphir: what was said?
ariestess: @lib :: don’t watch it, so no clue.
Alkmaion: Thanks for reminding me of Padme…I needed a PPP idea *laugh*
Alkmaion: Princess Protection Program
ariestess: I was going to ask the same thing about PPP
Liberty Stewart: @synergy: Who’s Bastilla Shan?
fsc_ralst: I was thinking perfectly plotted something
confuzzedly: err @lib Hollywood has "open" secrets. Think he just used one openly & no one realized til she came out
the_dhamphir: @lib: what was said about scully?
confuzzedly: that she was bi
Liberty Stewart: @dhamphir: Family Guy – "Helen Hunt and Gillian Anderson are lesbians"
Alkmaion: @aries: the first time I saw the abbreviation I thought of a term in latine grammar *smile*
confuzzedly: err thought he said she was bi..? oh doh right – was lesbian *sorry*
ariestess: @alk :: LOL
Jaely: Bastilla Shan is one of the main characters in the Game Knights of the Old Republic game
synergyfox: @liberty she was around during the jedi civil war *star wars fan here*
