Sci-Fi and Fantasy

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.

the_dhamphir: aj?

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*

the_dhamphir: ASoIaF???

ariestess: 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

ariestess: Ahh

synergyfox: So much femslashy goodness

synergyfox: Hnghn

confuzzedly: song of Ice and Fire George RR Martin

ivanolix: It’s got a tiny femslash fandom which is SAD

Jaely: oh

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

synergyfox: Both

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

synergyfox: *excellent

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!

ariestess: LOL

ivanolix: Ponies…MLP?

Shatterpath: I have to get those technicolor buggers OUT of my head

synergyfox: YES

synergyfox: YES

Jaely: it was a guess Shatter you sent me the CSI/white wolf one which I love btw

synergyfox: Allll the ponies

synergyfox: mwahahaha

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.

Otakugamer01: dash?

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.

Shatterpath: LOL

synergyfox: Tame that bitch, tame it.

ivanolix: It is only shameful if you’re not in the fandom

ivanolix: lol

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

the_dhamphir: Yep

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

fsc_ralst: @aj?

geekgrrllurking: Oh, yeah @Lib, TSCC is a good sci fi one too

ariestess: @D :: I don’t have B5 in LWM.

the_dhamphir: okay

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

Jaely: 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 shatterpath@shatterstorm.net 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.

pbandfluff: *my

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

confuzzedly: Dax/Lenara..?

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.

ariestess: onion?

confuzzedly: paranormal also gets shapechangers & vampires

synergyfox: many layers.

ariestess: Wait! Layered… Got it.

synergyfox: XD

Jaely: lol

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

yurianimeotaku: Speculative?

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*

synergyfox: ppp?

synergyfox: OH

Alkmaion: Princess Protection Program

ariestess: I was going to ask the same thing about PPP

Liberty Stewart: @synergy: Who’s Bastilla Shan?

synergyfox: @liberty she was around during the jedi civil war *star wars fan here*

the_dhamphir: All I know, is I grinned when it was confirmed that GA was bi. *G*

Liberty Stewart: Gillian is bi but the Family Guy comment was mostly true.

ariestess: *nods*

Liberty Stewart: @synergy: Oh the video games? That doesn’t count, I’m talking about the lousy movies.

synergyfox: @liberty she’s in a few books too if i recall correctly – or that was just in the d6 rpg… like I said… big star wars fan here XD

the_dhamphir: I think the stargate franchise has done well

ariestess: Well, the Trek franchise in general.

fsc_ralst: Voyager, yes, but the rest of Trek never really made a big femslash dent, did it?

yurianimeotaku: Anything older than B5?

Alkmaion: Does anyone think the relaunch f the ST movie will turn fans away?

Shatterpath: AHAAHHAAHA

Shatterpath: AJ is losing it

ariestess: I"ll just shut up now

Alkmaion: @aries: I have a plot idea that uses Howard´s Conan short story ‘Gods of the North’ and switches him with B

Shatterpath: the ST reboot was better than I’d expected as well

fsc_ralst: I enjoyed the reboot

ariestess: @alk :: Interesting

Alkmaion: Buffy

the_dhamphir: I liked the way they did it. without taking away the original canon

shaych03: i liked bad ass uhura. that rocked.

fsc_ralst: It’s a fanfic AU on multi-million dollar budget

the_dhamphir: so you can it both ways.. Original canon ST and the reboot in the alt universe

the_dhamphir: yes, the new Uhura was wonderful *G*

ariestess: *nods* Good point.

Alkmaion: Kinda at the end of season 5 hen she died, and she returns much stronger, a fledging goddess, but I´m a bit unsure how to write that

Kaqlittle: if u can figure it out I bet it will be good
