ariestess: Panelists, please change your font to bold red [like mine]. Everyone else, please use black text…
RaeDMagdon: Hello everyone. =D
hbomba-lonejaguar: Hi gang!
D_a_valiant_heart: Hey, ya’ll
synergyfox: Hi people who are awesome and red.
Ceridwyn2: Hey all!
ariestess: Okay, first the ground rules. You MUST raise your hand for questions. The mods [those of us with an @ in front of our names] will keep track of the questions for everyone.
ariestess: Panelists, please introduce yourselves. I’ll go first. I’m AJ, aka ariestess, aka A. Magiluna Stormwriter. I"m your moderator for this panel. I’ve written in the SVU ‘verse before.
D_a_valiant_heart: I’m D
Ceridwyn2: Hiya all!
hbomba-lonejaguar: H: I’m Heathers aka hbomba. I was active and wrote SVU fic for seasons 1-6. I will be sharing this handle with lonejaguar aka Nic.
Ceridwyn2: I haven’t written SVU fic, but I’ve read quite a bit of it
RaeDMagdon: I’m Rae. I started writing for SVU about 2010, and it’s my first love… kind of like the high school girlfriend you never forget. I’m probably best known for my Magnetic Resistance universe.
ariestess: So you’re a 2fer. Nice!
hbomba-lonejaguar: LJ: hey all! this is lonejaguar (Nic from way back). Wrote SVU fic through S1-6 as well and wrote the crap out of it!
ariestess: I remember your fic, LJ
ariestess: Actually, I think I’ve read something by all of you, now that I think of it.
hbomba-lonejaguar: LJ: Aw
RaeDMagdon: I love the older SVU fic (when I can find it). A lot of it has been lost over the years, sadly.
ariestess: So let’s start this off by asking all of our panelists what their favorite tropes are for this fandom.
Ceridwyn2: I loved DAx’s SVU stuff
RaeDMagdon: … Me too. I’m heartbroken that her last fic never got past the first part.
hbomba-lonejaguar: LJ: My SVU hat’s not on yet, hang on.
ariestess: So what kind of storylines do you like to write?
RaeDMagdon: I’m probably best known for porn and "fix it" moments from various seasons (most notably season 11)
hbomba-lonejaguar: I loved a good angsty Alex/Olivia with a dash of sex for flavor.
hbomba-lonejaguar: forgot my H!
RaeDMagdon: But honestly, I like all SVU fic as long as it’s Alex/Olivia. I’m very, very boring about my pairings, sadly.
hbomba-lonejaguar: LJ: I was all about the sex, too. And no matter how hard I tried, angst always crept in there
ariestess: LOL @ RaeD :: I’m the same way.
Ceridwyn2: I like some fix-it stuff, but I prefer the angsty stuff more
RaeDMagdon: Lately I’ve been depressed because the fandom is, y’know… slowing down. A lot. I was hoping the changes in the latest season would revitalize things, but it didn’t quite work out the way I hoped.
RaeDMagdon: I’m guilty of it, too. Which is why after this panel, I’m going to write the heck out of some of my SVU stories. c_c /off-topic rant
ariestess: I’ve noticed that, too.
ariestess: Ceridwyn2, you have the first question.
Ceridwyn2: @Rae, what in particular were you hoping would work out in the latest season?
Ceridwyn2: with regards to FF
RaeDMagdon: Well, I wasn’t banking specifically on Alex/Olivia together, but they haven’t even had as much platonic interaction as I hoped… and Olivia’s "let’s get a boyfriend" plotline irritated the shit out of me. I think they should just leave her single, because that pissed off the E/O fans as well.
Ceridwyn2: Well, yes. the get Olivia a boyfriend patently annoying
RaeDMagdon: I was hoping there’d be enough episodes with Alex/Olivia banter to inspire some fresh fanfic. Didn’t happen as much as I expected/hoped.
Ceridwyn2: Particularly as I didn’t care at all for Harry Connick Jr
psychotic-cat17: They should know by now that she’s just not made out to have a boyfriend.
ariestess: Is that who they paired her up with?
Ceridwyn2: She needs to get her swagger back
RaeDMagdon: They can’t really do anything without pissing some group off. Which is why I advocate for leaving her single and let the fanfic community take over instead.
ariestess: I admit I haven’t watched the show in years now.
RaeDMagdon: I’ve stopped watching lately. Got too pissed off.
RaeDMagdon: I retreat to fanfic – but there’s less and less now. I’m going to try and keep writing… especially from the good ol’ seasons before WPP. There’s a bunch of material there.
Ceridwyn2: i did love that one brief moment they had of Olivia & Alex skating at (I think) Rockefeller Center
Ceridwyn2: Or rather it was just post-skating talk bit tht I saw
ariestess: I have missed Butchy McFabulous.
hbomba-lonejaguar: LJ: That sounds like a fic I read once.
ariestess: cabenson, you have the next question
cabenson: How do you think they can revive the fandom, if indeed they can?
RaeDMagdon: Me too! *Sigh* The jacket…
Ceridwyn2: but it was brief because they ended off going to a crime scene
RaeDMagdon: Fandoms need three things to survive: Good material, fresh blood, and inspiration.
RaeDMagdon: SVU has(had) good material.
RaeDMagdon: Inspiration can come in the form of fanfic. I know reading good SVU fanfic has inspired me to write my own.
Ceridwyn2: Good source material, from any season.
RaeDMagdon: But the fresh blood… there’s an issue. I also think part of it is that games/movies/TV shows are getting more LGBT inclusive.
RaeDMagdon: Us lesbians just aren’t satisfied with subtext anymore.
hbomba-lonejaguar: H: I think that ship may have sailed. All the L&O’s hit the wall eventually and the fandoms peter out. It’s sad.
Ceridwyn2: I wish they could have played up more of the bit with Olivia and her half sister
RaeDMagdon: I mean… I admit to being stolen away by Mass Effect somewhat because they have a full blown lesbian romance in that game for me to enjoy.
D_a_valiant_heart: Consistency in the characters would help immensely, but that is almost impossible to find
RaeDMagdon: It’s incredibly depressing. I’m saving all the Alex/Olivia fics I enjoy so that I don’t lose them.
ariestess: We go where the hoyay is.
hbomba-lonejaguar: LJ: I absolutely agree, Rae. When there are shows that have legitimate canon lesbian relationships, it’s not enough.
Ceridwyn2: I’ve done that with some of my favourites and put them into ePub format if they’re not already in that format
hbomba-lonejaguar: LJ: Liara has my heart too, Rae
RaeDMagdon: I know that L&O:SVU will always be my first love, though. I’ll probably come back to it years after everyone else has stopped writing… I’ll be that one weird person.
Alsike: I don’t know. It also seems like the subtext isn’t there anymore.
RaeDMagdon: It isn’t.
RaeDMagdon: That’s the sad thing.
RaeDMagdon: It’d be different if it ended well, like Xena, but this is just a slow zombification
Ceridwyn2: XWP i smy first love
tuesfork: I’ll be the one weird person reading it , Rae
cabenson: Olivia isn’t there anymore. I don’t know who MH is portraying
ariestess: Certain shows that had a HUGE fan following/good ratings for a long time do tend to do the zombification death rather than going out while they’re still good.
hbomba-lonejaguar: H: Body snatchers
RaeDMagdon: I do know that I probably won’t be writing any up-to-date SVU fics in the future. I’ll do spin-offs of canon after Season 5, most likely.
eclecticfan: MH portrays MH as she thinks a cop should be – CB
Alsike: Maybe something that could be good is if people who know the fandom well have a big recs post – like the Xena one on P&P
ariestess: @eclecticfan :: SO DAMNED TRUE!
RaeDMagdon: There’s an idea.
Alsike: It might help people get into the fandom, and cement the characters the way they ought to be.
eclecticfan: Olivia/Alex peaked in Season 3 and Olivia has been slowly dying ever since
RaeDMagdon: I’d also encourage SVU writers to do more collabs. I’m admittedly a collab whore, but it helps to have someone else to jump off of.
Ceridwyn2: Like Rysler has this amazing Thematic Index of Otalia fic that archives it by story points. That would be awesome if someone had done that with SVU storyline
ariestess: I pretty much stopped writing anything after "Ghost" [wasn’t that the one where she came out of WITSEC to testify?]
Ceridwyn2: I think so
eclecticfan: I believe so
hbomba-lonejaguar: LJ: eventually, I fell more in love with my AU Alex/Olivia lol
ariestess: Yeah, I stopped there. Though I’ve written a couple of strange little fics since Alex came back "for good".
ariestess: But I primarily play with them in my AU-verse.
cabenson: I’ve wanted to update "The Case of the Butch and the Blonde" for forever, but I ccan’t make myself sit and watch the eps anymore.
hbomba-lonejaguar: H: my swan song was my WPP epic.
RaeDMagdon: So, I’d suggest writing together, archiving better, and ignoring almost everything in the later seasons, including MH’s hair.
tuesfork: and clothes
RaeDMagdon: If the show isn’t going to inspire us, we have to inspire each other.
eclecticfan: and attitude
Ceridwyn2: And swagger
ariestess: That’s true.
psychotic-cat17: The only thing I like from the new season is Rollins, but I wouldn’t pair her in femslash
RaeDMagdon: Yeah… don’t read ‘lesbian’ there.
RaeDMagdon: Don’t mind her character, but hate everything else about this season.
Ceridwyn2: no, even tho Munch suggested it – for a case
RaeDMagdon: Nice eye candy, I suppose.
tuesfork: I do read insightful for rollins though
RaeDMagdon: Anyway, I know I’m going to try and boost my SVU time. Mass Effect universe will just have to learn to share.
RaeDMagdon: *SVU writing time.
psychotic-cat17: Yes, boost it Rae
RaeDMagdon: But yeah, I think (sadly) that SVU is a dying fandom. I honestly believe that it’s partially because lesbians are finally starting to see themselves represented in actual characters.
RaeDMagdon: Which is a good thing.
ariestess: So here’s something I asked in the Guiding Light panel, but I think will be applicable here, too. If you had the opportunity to change ANYTHING in the SVU universe, what would it be?
psychotic-cat17: Absolutely a good thing
Ceridwyn2: I once had a Sociology prof that was scarily alike to Munch, even physical appearance
cabenson: Alex wouldn’t have left after GHOST
RaeDMagdon: @cabenson Exactly.
Ceridwyn2: @cabenson – yes
ariestess: LOL @ cabenson :: I KNEW you’d say that first.
Ceridwyn2: And they wouldn’t have upped Benson’s het cred
RaeDMagdon: Also… ditch all the male love interests for Olivia. They’re fucking annoying.
AlexReading: lol@ cabenson. and @AJ, coz she types first.
ariestess: LOL @ alex
psychotic-cat17: And they never stick, so what’s the use
Alkmaion: ‘het cred’…sounds evil
RaeDMagdon: I think MH has a bit to do with it.
hbomba-lonejaguar: LJ: Agree CB
Ceridwyn2: yes, unfortunatley
cabenson: Also, and I can’t believe I am typing this, Casey wouldn’t have been so annoying. And clumsy…
ariestess: *stares at cabenson* Wasn’t expecting that. *g*
Ceridwyn2: Casey had her good points but sometimes rather annoying, too
RaeDMagdon: I liked Casey. I didn’t see her as a threat to Alex. Of course, I prefer Alex… I saw Elliot, bad writing, and the idiot producers as the threat.
AlexReading: but casey is endearing in her own ways. The parade of ADAs after her, are just forgettable.
ariestess: I don’t think early Elliot was a threat, but later years? Yes.
Ceridwyn2: oh definitely
RaeDMagdon: Yeah, later Elliot. Not early Elliot.
Ceridwyn2: Casey and her softball playing ways
eclecticfan: Casey = perfectly good actor, ruined by awful writing
psychotic-cat17: I liked when Elliot was a family man, but then he changed and I didn’t like it.
cabenson: Diane Neal is kinda cool, and while I prefered Alex, I think they could have written Casey better. Preferably by writing for her LESS, lol
AlexReading: @eclecticfan totally!
RaeDMagdon: I wrote Casey as straight in my Magnetic Resistance universe, but I headcanon her as a lesbian… that just isn’t interested in Olivia.
eclecticfan: for me, basically long about season 6 – the writers forgot who their characters were and made pod perople out of them
RaeDMagdon: Yep. Pod people.
Ceridwyn2: sounds about right
ariestess: I preferred Alex to Casey, but DN was kind of saddled with some crap writing.
RaeDMagdon: I’m going to keep writing for the SVU fandom because I still love the old episodes and characters A LOT. But I’ll probably veer towards AUs and early season spinoffs
RaeDMagdon: Or smutty oneshots where I don’t have to worry about canon.
ariestess: Anyone else have a question?
eclecticfan: DN seems to be a kick IRL – but, admittedly Casey was leaps better than anyone else recent (Alex notwithstanding)
cabenson: Also, more ORDER side of the show. Especially utilizing Liz Donelly and the judeges more.
RaeDMagdon: ….. Since when have we been answering questions? I thought this was just a bitch session about how L&O has gone down the tubes?
Ceridwyn2: Definitely using Donnelly more.
ariestess: Is it just me, or is Liz Donelly kinda sex on a stick?
RaeDMagdon: Don’t normally go for older women, but… mrrrow
hbomba-lonejaguar: LJ: Definitely Team Donnelly over here.
Ceridwyn2: I also liked Patricia Kalember (sp?) as one of the justices. She used to be on Sisters.
Ceridwyn2: Judith Light = amazing
ariestess: Okay, good. It’s not just me. I just can’t find anyone to slash Donnelly with.
cabenson: Judge Petrovsky and Alex scenes=gold!
RaeDMagdon: Yep, wish there were more of those.
Ceridwyn2: They were awesome
hbomba-lonejaguar: LJ: I think I might have written a Liz/Alex once. I don’t remember! LOL
RaeDMagdon: Gosh, I miss the old seasons. I’m all nostalgic and sad now.
ariestess: Oh, Judge Petrovsky! She was awesome!
eclecticfan: yeah, since Donnelly/Cabot is kinda creeps me out
ariestess: Donnelly/Cabot is kinda creepy to me, too.
RaeDMagdon: It’s kind of sad that I have to go to my favorite SVU fanfics to get inspired instead of the show. Says a lot.
Ceridwyn2: Petrovsky when Alex came back was great
hbomba-lonejaguar: LJ: that’s probably why I wrote it, actually.
RaeDMagdon: Petrovsky in general amused me.
ariestess: So where do you find the femslash to help inspire you?
RaeDMagdon: Whenever I see a good Alex/Olivia on an older archiving site, I save it now. Because it’s ancient most of the time and I’m afraid it’ll be lost forever
Ceridwyn2: AJ – cabenson or Daxilla inspires.
eclecticfan: kinda like even as crack!fic I just can’t so Prentiss/Strauss in Criminal Minds – no matter how much cabenson screams for it ;P
RaeDMagdon: DAxilla always inspires.
eclecticfan: do* not so
ariestess: LOL! Do we even want to know what cabenson will scream for?
RaeDMagdon: Oh dear.
eclecticfan: prentiss/strauss, I’ll telling ya
cabenson: Aw thanks Ceri, too bad I am retired, lol
cabenson: I saw that Kim!
eclecticfan: **scampers away – far away**
RaeDMagdon: The few Criminal Minds fics I’ve read have been with JJ
Ceridwyn2: my current writings are GL’s Otalia Virtual season and Hospital Central’s Maca/Esther and Maca/Claudia
eclecticfan: now se crossing Cagot with Prentiss – now that would be hot
hbomba-lonejaguar: LJ: Definitely CB for inspiration!
eclecticfan: see* i REALLY NEED TO LEARN TO TYPE
ariestess: Cabot and Prentiss? Oh… Ohmy…
Ceridwyn2: oh, now that sounds hot Cabot & Prentiss
RaeDMagdon: Oh… one thing, guys. I’ve never mastered LJ, really. I’m lame, I know.
RaeDMagdon: Is there something besides passion & perfection that I can use to find the older Alex/Olivia stuff?
RaeDMagdon: Or is it just that?
cabenson: Nic, you are too sweet
eclecticfan: even Prentiss with Sarena Southerlyn from TOS – all’s good
RaeDMagdon: …. Serena is all kinds of delicious.
hbomba-lonejaguar: H: I love you too CB
Ceridwyn2: There was the Abby Carmichael/Jill Kirkendall (L&O/NYPDB xover)
eclecticfan: and – any reason to make Paget Brewster (or her character) gay is all a win
cabenson: Hbomb and Nic got me into this fandom so they get ALL my loes!
hbomba-lonejaguar: H: I used to write Abbie/Olivia and Abbie/Alex
AlexReading: @rae s authors are retro-actively posting on ff.net, P&P is pretty much it.
RaeDMagdon: ‘Kay, just checking.
ariestess: Is there a bit SVU following over on AO3?
hbomba-lonejaguar: something happened to svufiction?
eclecticfan: I have no idea who got me into SVU – but CB, Nic and Hbomb were already there
Alsike: I wrote one Prentiss/Cabot
cabenson: I am starting to post all my stuff at AO3
AlexReading: AO3 after the ff.net mess delete.
eclecticfan: where @Alsike?
RaeDMagdon: I’m not sure, but I do post on AO3. The tagging system is weird over there. I usually use AO3 for Mass Effect… the few times I checked AO3 for Alex/Olivia, it was… um. There was some weird shit on there.
ariestess: @rae :: weird how?
Alsike: http://nike-ravus.livejournal.com/17639.html#cutid1 – it’s pretty weird though.
Ceridwyn2: My stuff is either on my own website, LJ, some at P&P, and a few of the FSAC
hbomba-lonejaguar: LJ: Well I certainly have a wealth of fic I could collect somewhere, is AO3 the place to go over FF.net?
Alsike: um, well, Emily’s the perp
ariestess: brb house emergency
RaeDMagdon: Yeah, I’d say so.
RaeDMagdon: AO3 is pretty awesome. If anyone’s considering cross-posting fics in any fandom there, I’d recommend.
Alsike: And it was too dub-cony to post at P&P
RaeDMagdon: The only flaw, besides not being open to the public yet… the tagging system for couples. Good: you can type in any couple or name
RaeDMagdon: Bad: multiple spellings of the same pairing
hbomba-lonejaguar: LJ: I did have a lot at svufiction.com, too
RaeDMagdon: Yeah, didn’t the E/O shippers take over svufiction?
RaeDMagdon: I went there a few times and was like, "um, where can I find the Alex/Olivia?
cabenson: oh, svufiction.com! Good times!!
RaeDMagdon: Didn’t work out.
hbomba-lonejaguar: LJ: well the fic should still be there even if it’s old, right?
RaeDMagdon: Is anyone else feeling kind of old talking about all this?
Ceridwyn2: Even more so for the next panel of XWP
hbomba-lonejaguar: LJ: lol I feel old every day these days!
psychotic-cat17: LIke you should feel old, Rae.
Alsike: This fandom was dying when I joined it
RaeDMagdon: I came into SVU later than most because I was too young to watch it or read/write lesbian porn at the very beginning.
RaeDMagdon: Same here
Alsike: but I wrote!
cabenson: I will say, for as much as the fandom has declined, I made a shot ton of friends from my A/O obsession
AlexReading: lol. shh.
ariestess: I crosspost all of my fic to AO3 now. Working on getting the oder stuff there.
hbomba-lonejaguar: http://www.svufiction.com/viewuser.php?uid=4 is a link to H’s stuff
eclecticfan: too true, CB
hbomba-lonejaguar: LJ: Amen, CB!
cabenson: Amen Eclecticfan although that was a freaking blast!
Ceridwyn2: It’s like in Oct 2009 for the GL fanclub weekend, we had some 250+ women from the Big Purple Dreams forum in NYC
RaeDMagdon: Oh dear.
Ceridwyn2: I think so
cabenson: Yep! Drunken Elders FTW!
Ceridwyn2: That was a fun time
RaeDMagdon: …. I feel very young now.
RaeDMagdon: *Coughcough* I am hoping some people will post SVU fic for it… or at least fill some of my Mass Effect prompts on the Kink Meme.
RaeDMagdon: Oh! I have a question for you older peole…
Athena28: Getting older can be tough so I did thingsto mak it easier.
RaeDMagdon: Was there anything like the kink meme back in the first couple years? I was too young to be there.
hbomba-lonejaguar: LJ: Are you asking if people wrote kinky fic?
RaeDMagdon: For those who don’t know what the Kink Meme is… it’s this awesome LJ thread (for various fandoms… each one has their own) where people could post ‘prompts
Ceridwyn2: Not that I remember, but I do remember those ol’ "Purity Tests"
RaeDMagdon: Prompts… usually sexual, but occasionally gen. And then someone would come along an anonymously fill the prompt.
eclecticfan: don’t remember them back in the days of Xena, Buffy and early SVU
hbomba-lonejaguar: LJ: we didn’t usually need prompting
Ceridwyn2: LJ – LMAO
eclecticfan: too true JL
RaeDMagdon: Okay… that’s sad. I wish I could have seen an SVU kink meme. Mass Effect has a great one.
ariestess: An SVU kink meme? what a fascinating idea…
cabenson: I miss the old drabble challenges
AlexReading: @rae have you searchedhe Alex/Olivia lj comm?
hbomba-lonejaguar: LJ: we had drabble contests–yes!
RaeDMagdon: Well… it’s very simple. *Shrug* All it takes is an LJ thread. Someone posts a prompt: "Alex/Olivia – the night before Ghost" (although that’s been written to death) for example.
RaeDMagdon: Then someone fills it.
RaeDMagdon: The prompts can be like 5 words, or hundreds.
ariestess: Oh, the drabble challenges. I miss a good drabble challenge.
AlexReading: make it a rule – no Ghost.
hbomba-lonejaguar: LJ: we did that kind of thing, it just wasn’t called a meme
Ceridwyn2: The only thing I wish was that LJ made it easier to search for fic. You can occasionally do it by tag lines but that’s only if the author tagged it by fandom
RaeDMagdon: Well, I assumed it had a different name. But a thread where someone posts a prompt and someone else fills it… or multiple people fill it.
RaeDMagdon: That sounded dirty
RaeDMagdon: Yeah, I find LJ very hard to navigate.
RaeDMagdon: But it seems like that’s where the majority of SVU fic was back in the day.
psychotic-cat17: Me too. I don’t like Live Journal
RaeDMagdon: Or on archive sites/private sites.
RaeDMagdon: I’ll save my hatred of livejournal for another time. XD
RaeDMagdon: I wish I could, like, send a message out to all the people who used to like A/O and still want to write it so we could start something like the Kink Meme up. Hard for a dying fandom, though.
Ceridwyn2: I do like LJ for quite a bit, often where I find new fic to read, but if you want to search a particular story or author sometimes it takes a lot of work
RaeDMagdon: If it was still in its heyday, I’d offer to moderate something like that.
ariestess: Did they stop in the fandom or move to other fandoms?
cabenson: LJ and SVU introduced me to theholyinnocent, heathers, nic, kimly, few, ann dunn and somany important peeps in my life, so I gotta thank it for something
Ceridwyn2: vanished or moved to other fandoms
ariestess: And we have about 5 minutes left in this panel. Any final questions for our panelist?
AlexReading: migrated to tumblr.
RaeDMagdon: Yeah… it makes me sad. Although I’ve been guilty of it as well… *cough*Liara T’Soni*cough*
eclecticfan: right with ya CB
hbomba-lonejaguar: LJ: I feel like I wrote everything I could for the fandom, honestly.
hbomba-lonejaguar: LJ: I don’t like repeating myself unless I can think of another way to do it.
cabenson: I moved to vidding. Would like to get back to writing someday
hbomba-lonejaguar: LJ: Which is sad, I guess, because SVU was a big part of my life for a number of years.
Alsike: Kink-meme’s are awesome. I support it!
RaeDMagdon: The defining moment when I realized I wasn’t primarily an SVU writer came when I changed my desktop screensaver.
Ceridwyn2: Oh, and Ship Manifestos, cabenson
RaeDMagdon: A few months ago.
hbomba-lonejaguar: LJ Absolutely, CB! I love all the great people this fandom introduced me to!
RaeDMagdon: I may or may not have teared up a little.
cabenson: I’m retired from those to, Ceri. I think
RaeDMagdon: Well, I guess I’m gonna leave this and go write some fresh SVU… or at least finish the stories I have left open. Not quite ready to let go yet.
ariestess: There you go.
ariestess: For fic posted may inspire someone else.
RaeDMagdon: I really, really hope so.
ariestess: Xena panel begins in 3 minutes.
eclecticfan: @Alsike – that was very provocative, but extremely well done – and hell, anytime crawfish bites it, I’m a fan
ariestess: Thank you to all of the panelists and attendees for making this such a great panel!
ariestess: Transcripts will be available after the con is over. Give us a couple of weeks ot recover and get them all ready for you, then they’ll be on the femslashday.com site.
RaeDMagdon: Thanks for the chat everybody, even if it was kinda depressing. Heh.
cabenson: Thanks everyone! So glad I got home in time to join in. Always my fave panel!
hbomba-lonejaguar: Thanks everybody!
RaeDMagdon: And made me feel old. And then not old enough.
D_a_valiant_heart: thanks, ya’ll
Ceridwyn2: this was fun.
AlexReading: thank you old friends.
ariestess: This was fun to wander back and reminisce.
Alsike: @ eclectic – I’m glad you liked it! it was pretty odd to write, but interesting.
hbomba-lonejaguar: Twitter shoutout: @chefheathers & @lonejaguar Hope we’ll see you guys around the internet!
RaeDMagdon: All right. Bye everybody!
