the_dhamphir: All the Rest… this is where you get to discuss your favorite small and obsure fandoms!
ariestess: *bats eyelashes at D* So I can talk about PtL?
the_dhamphir: Yes, AJ *G*
Jaely: Mass Effect!
Jaely: sorry I’m like in love with that game and fandom
ariestess: @yuri :: Poltergeist: the Legacy
Alkmaion: PtL? please enlighten me, Buddh-aries?
Alkmaion: Ah, now I feel stupido
Shatterpath: No, it’s the Goddess Ari
docwho2100: must put in a Nikki and Nora mention : )
ariestess: Oh, and bedtime!
the_dhamphir: Sanctuary is a good show. I don’t really think of it as small though since I see so much fanfic being posted.
ariestess: *waits for crickets on that one*
Shatterpath: no, it’s not late enogh yet
the_dhamphir: Definitely Nikki and Nora
ariestess: Please excuse my other half. She’s lost her damned mind.
yurianimeotaku: @Jaely I’ve just gotten into ME. I bought my gamer gf all three games to play and tell me about, since I’m not into those types of games.
Liberty Stewart: Since this show didn’t get mentioned yet to my knowledge, what are people’s thoughts on Pretty Little Liars?
docwho2100: Cowgirl Up as well
Kaqlittle: not enough femslash that I can find. I don’t like the male characters enough to read the fics that have been written
ariestess: I never got into Pretty Little Liars
Jaely: yuri LOL it’s an awesome fandom and game I love it
the_dhamphir: I watched PLL, but just got frustrated since there’s never any resolution tot he story line
yurianimeotaku: @Jaely I’m in lust with Specialist Samantha Traynor in ME3. She’s even my wallpaper.
Alkmaion: *tea-induced coffeine starts to kick in*
Shatterpath: I haen’t lost my mind, I’m just loopy tired, cold and wired on caffine. The constant storms aren’t helping
Liberty Stewart: @dhamphir: Feel the same way about PLL. Just thought to give that show a mentioned.
the_dhamphir: I did like Maya and her coming out story line
the_dhamphir: wait, it was Maya, right?
yurianimeotaku: @aries Which number is PtL? I saw the first one.
Liberty Stewart: @dhamphir: I believe so. The character later committed suicide IIRC.
the_dhamphir: I do think it’s cool to see a canon lesbian in the teen show though!
ariestess: @yuri :: PtL is a series, not one of hte movies.
Jaely: I do too I wish they were around when I was a kid
the_dhamphir: Ah, no, I meant Emily. Maya was her girlfriend.
yurianimeotaku: @d I’m seeing it more and more. South of Nowhere, Buffy, etc…
Liberty Stewart: @dhamphir: Glee fans praise PLL because the canon lesbians actual kiss.
the_dhamphir: yes, they do
ariestess: Well, that’s a good thing.
Liberty Stewart: Anyone here watches Smallville? No lesbians to my knowledge, just wondering.
ariestess: *shakes head*
mandygirl78: Used to
the_dhamphir: I did watch smallville, but didn’t get into the fandom.
Kaqlittle: yes used to
yurianimeotaku: Hey Mandy! I was wondering when I’d see you.
mandygirl78: hi, i was busy the entire day.
yurianimeotaku: Of course you made it back for small fandoms…your favorite.
ariestess: Fresh me– Oops! sorry…
ariestess: *cheeky grin*
Liberty Stewart: I mainly watched Smallville for the Cassidy Freeman years because I miss Playboy Club that much. The Cassidy Freeman/Erica Durance years were awesome btw.
mandygirl78: @yuri – who are you talking to?
yurianimeotaku: @mandy You
mandygirl78: actually i wanted to also attend the non-US fandom one
Shatterpath: Ha! I have a good one. Some of my best work is in a epic fic I wrote based in the RPG, Earthdawn. Beat THAT for small fandom!
the_dhamphir: What specifically draws you to a small or obsure fandom?
mandygirl78: but i missed it
ariestess: *waves the bedtime card in Doggie’s face*
yurianimeotaku: @Shatterpath THAT’S small.
mandygirl78: becuase it’s not bloated, clustered, saturated.
Shatterpath: *wistful* Such a great game….
Alkmaion: the terra incognita factor
Liberty Stewart: @dhamphir: Actors and lesbians draw me to a obscure fandom.
yurianimeotaku: @mandy The Non-English Lang one was better.
the_dhamphir: do you have some examples, Lib?
docwho2100: Sometimes it’s the limited amount of canon content that draws me as I am looking for more story
Jaely: Ok I’m off to bed I had fun see you all in a few hours for the next set of panels!
mandygirl78: oh ok. because one of my favorite fandoms is a non-us one.
mandygirl78: @doc – ditto
ariestess: Susan Gibney and Felicity Huffman as lesbians… And I’m the only one who’s ever written fic for them.
Shatterpath: No one’s taking that bait? Dang
the_dhamphir: did you write it for Felicity? or a character she played?
Liberty Stewart: @dhamphir: Moviewise a heard of a movie called Kiss Me Again cause it has one of my fave actors in it. Turns out said actor played a lesbian in it and it was heavy on lesbianism.
ariestess: Character she played. They played a pair of lesbians on the series, bedtime [and IMDB capitalizes it incorrectly, the bastards]
yurianimeotaku: Bedtime? US show?
ariestess: It was on Showtime in 1996. Ran for like 10 eps or something like that.
ariestess: The whole show took place in the bedrooms of 6 couples. They were the only lesbian couple.
yurianimeotaku: No wonder I never saw it…no Showtime.
the_dhamphir: Do you ever try to expand the visibility of your small fandoms? Recruit other writers into them?
docwho2100: it means more story if you succeed : )
yurianimeotaku: I brought my gf into FoL and she wrote for it. Does that count?
ariestess: *shamelessly raises hand for PtL*
the_dhamphir: of course it does, yuri. *G*
Liberty Stewart: I’m okay with people not knowing any of the actors/movies/shows that I like. I know I like obscure things.
mandygirl78: I haven’t, but I seemed to insipre someone to write an FoL fanifc.
Liberty Stewart: What does PtL stand for?
ariestess: Not that I get a lot of people for it, but I keep trying.
docwho2100: Sending people interesting articles of crimes to get them thinking about a possible fic
ariestess: @lib :: Poltergeist: the Legacy
docwho2100: Starting a round robin and poking them into joining
ariestess: @doc :: That’s always fun
docwho2100: trading a story for a story
ariestess: That, too
the_dhamphir: Those are all good ideas, doc
Liberty Stewart: If my upcoming Smallville/Playboy Club fic doesn’t get people interested, well I tried.
docwho2100: They have all worked too ; )
mandygirl78: And it seems that I have inspired quite a few people to write differently for one fandom. but no.
the_dhamphir: which fandom, mandy?
mandygirl78: It’s a yuri fanfic. Kannazuki no Miko.
yurianimeotaku: @aries I just looked up PtL…I actually saw a couple of episodes.
the_dhamphir: I admit to no familiarity with yuri/anime
yurianimeotaku: @d Yuri is a completely different world.
Shatterpath: I only know anime only from the early 90s
ariestess: @yuri :: It’s a wonderful show. I just wish they’d release teh whole series on DVD, but I’m not holding my breath.
mandygirl78: @yuri – It is…
the_dhamphir: what other favorite small fandoms do you ladies have?
ariestess: I have one, but it’s not one I write femslash in.
Liberty Stewart: Only animes that play here in Canada are 3rd rate crap like Pokemon whatever generation and yu-gu-oh whatever gneration.
yurianimeotaku: @d Facts of Life…although on P&P it seems rather popular. Not as popular as Rizzoli & Isles.
Alkmaion: uhm…why is it? Actually, i´ve done Sailor Moon, Vampire Miyu, Mean Girls and Buffy and it is all about ladies loving ladies. Where´s the difference?
Liberty Stewart: @arietess: name that fandom.
ariestess: @Lib :: Katherine Kurtz’s Deryni universe
mandygirl78: @Alk – Difference is that it’s drawn and that it’s Japanese, thus it follows more Japanese culture
Liberty Stewart: never heard of it. Is it a book series or something?
Alkmaion: @yuri: This difference
yurianimeotaku: @Liberty There is actually a slashy couple in Pokemon.
ariestess: Yep, book series. Fantastically written. Incredible characters. There’s just really no one to do femslash for.
Liberty Stewart: @yuri: show’s too awful for me to notice anything else.
Alkmaion: @yuri: I now see what you mean
mandygirl78: Small fanfics – Facts of Life, Once and Again.
yurianimeotaku: @Alk I’ve written Yuri and Femslash. There are several Yuri authors who have no idea about Femslash.
Liberty Stewart: Speaking of book series, anyone heard of a book series where Snow White, Cinderella and Sleeping Beauty are rewritten and one of them is a canon lesbian?
Alkmaion: @aries: What about that one time fiance to Kelson that was impregnated by his traitorous cousin?
mandygirl78: A few others that I’ve haven’t written yet, such as Little Darlins, Kate and Allie, Annie on My Mind, etc.
yurianimeotaku: @mandy Kate and Allie? Really?
yurianimeotaku: I can see Cagney and Lacey before Kate and Allie.
ariestess: @alk :: You know the books! *claps happily* I could probably put Rothana [that’s her name] with Morgan’s wife [whose name I’m totally blanking on atm], but they’re related, os maybe not.
Alkmaion: @yuri I see. Well, I played both sides of the fence, so to say, and didn´t thought others were that different
mandygirl78: remember that one episode of K&A?
ariestess: But the Princess that Rothana was companion to? Yeah….
mandygirl78: Cagney & Lacey – not really, because of Lacey
the_dhamphir: I didn’t watch K&A with my femslash glasses on at the time, but looking back? Oh Yeah, definitely slashable. *G*
yurianimeotaku: @Alk There aren’t a lot of authors who play on both sides of the fence like us.
ariestess: Richenda! That was her name.
ariestess: *is proud to remember that*
yurianimeotaku: @mandy Lacey was WAY more "dykey" than Cagney.
mandygirl78: oh sorry, I mixed them up
yurianimeotaku: Even if she was married
mandygirl78: it’s been a while
Alkmaion: @mandy If you ever write the Kate and Allie story, please tell me where to find it. A friend of mine would squee in joy *g*
the_dhamphir: maybe, but it was Cagney that grabbed my attention. *G*
WillowPowered: oh Cagney & Lacey both delightful
Liberty Stewart: @mandy: I adore Once and Again. One half of the lesbian couples became a vampire while the other became a druggy from the OC.
yurianimeotaku: Cagney and Lacey is another small fandom.
WillowPowered: I had a thing for Lacey
mandygirl78: Lacey was cute.
mandygirl78: @Lib – yeah, interesting isn’t it?
Alkmaion: @aries it was in the 90s I read that, with one follow up meeting in…2005…i think. Considering the plitical intrigue and that, I´d consider it a ‘nice’ Game of Thrones *g*
Liberty Stewart: I preferred the adults from Once and Again over the kids tbh.
the_dhamphir: Would you consider Charlie’s Angels a small fandom?
mandygirl78: Not really.
Alkmaion: Question: Is there ‘Princes of Amber’ femslash out there?
yurianimeotaku: What about Family? I’m surprised there wasn’t an influx of fan fics after Meredith came out.
yurianimeotaku: @d I do.
Liberty Stewart: @mandy: One thing to say for sure about O&A’s lesbian couple, it wasn’t their last lesbo encounter.
mandygirl78: @Lib – true
yurianimeotaku: @d I’d like to see more Sabrina/Kelly fics.
Liberty Stewart: Anyone seen those cruel intentions movies?
mandygirl78: @yuri – I don’t know how that would work with the character in Family. Buddy? Absolutely
ariestess: @alk :: I love all of the books in the Deryni series. I’ve written stories in the "current" era, but really need to do a proper reread of the whole thing.
the_dhamphir: @yuri, agreed.
michelle_2011: i watched the c i movies
yurianimeotaku: @d I’d also like to see more "adult oriented" Sabrina/Kelly fics.
mandygirl78: @yuri – I second on the sabrina/kelly fic. Also kris/kelly isn’t bad either.
yurianimeotaku: There’s only one on P7P.
Liberty Stewart: @michelle: which was your fave?
the_dhamphir: What your thoughts about reading or writing femslash about shows you loved as kid?
michelle_2011: the first movie
Alkmaion: @aries: it was a very intersting setting. I read that, Earthsea…
mandygirl78: Here’s another one that should have more, though I only read one at AO3 – Designing Women.
ariestess: @alk :: Haven’t actually read Earthsea yet
Alkmaion: A bunch
yurianimeotaku: @d I’m doing that now with FoL.
Liberty Stewart: @michelle: what did you think of Amy Adams in the 2nd movie?
ariestess: @alk :: I also love the First People series by the Gears, but no femslash potential there.
the_dhamphir: I didn’t even know there awas Designing Women fic. LOL
mandygirl78: yes there is
yurianimeotaku: @d There’s Golden Girls fics too.
ariestess: Oh, there’s some good Designing Women fic out there.
ariestess: I haven’t read teh Golden Girls stuff much.
yurianimeotaku: @d Mary Tyler Moore fics.
the_dhamphir: Somehow I’m not at all surprised about the Golden Girls. LOL
mandygirl78: Golden girls? *cringe*
WillowPowered: I’ve never thought of writing a fic about a show I loved when I was younger – maybe one day!
yurianimeotaku: @mandy Agiest…LOL.
Alkmaion: @I recently got my hands on the Sword Dancer series by Jennifer Roberson. No sure if that has potential though. Don´t know ‘First People’ though
mandygirl78: Mary Tyler Moore. Never thought of that.
Liberty Stewart: Most people would be turned off about have to write sex scenes for clear senior folks.
Alkmaion: Though I love some of te older settings and the unexplored territories there-in
yurianimeotaku: @mandy Mary and Rhoda. At first, I thought I wouldn’t like the pairing, but it works.
ariestess: @alk :: First People is a bunch of Native American tribe stories. Fascinating stuff!
mandygirl78: @yuri – Hmm… It cold work
yurianimeotaku: @Lib Yes, it was a bit odd to read about Blanche and Rose.
the_dhamphir: what current/new show/movies would you all like to see grow from small fandom to larger?
Alkmaion: @aries: there legends, gods and heroes?
mandygirl78: @d – I’m writing a fanfic of a show that I like as a kid
the_dhamphir: What fandom, Mandy?
mandygirl78: Facts of Life
Liberty Stewart: I’m thinking
ariestess: @alk :: basically and also weaves a story about the cultures
mandygirl78: can’t think of any D
WillowPowered: Now you’ve got me thinking about writing Wonder Woman fics lol
ariestess: @d :: Hmm… I’d say MLP, but I’m not 100% sure how big that femslash fandom is atm.
yurianimeotaku: @d I don’t watch series television, so I can’t answer.
Liberty Stewart: @dhamphir: Does Playboy Club counts. Yes I’m kind of obsess with that show. I mean 3 lesbians, come on.
ariestess: @d :: My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic
yurianimeotaku: @d No…please. I’ll start laughing again.
the_dhamphir: @aj: ah
the_dhamphir: @ liberty, yes, I would say that would be one. *G*
yurianimeotaku: @d I’d like to see lesser-known characters within current small fandoms get some exposure.
mandygirl78: MLP has a HUGE following in deviantarts. There are lots of drawings of them on that site. I do watch MLP – FIM but I don’t have any idea in writing one.
the_dhamphir: Like who, yuri?
Liberty Stewart: Yes Playboy Club needs a bigger fandom. Nikki and Nora has a bigger fandom than it for crying out loud.
mandygirl78: @yuri – same here. Of course you know I already am doing that.
Alkmaion: I love such stuff. My latest acquisition was Le morte d´arthur of Thomas Mallory. Sounds cool.
ariestess: I haven’t read Le Morte in years…
ariestess: *adds it to long list of rereads*
Alkmaion: @aries sorry forgot
the_dhamphir: I think Playboy Club got beat before it ever aired.
yurianimeotaku: @d Birds of Prey (tv): Black Canary and Barbara Gordon. There are plenty for the comicverse.
mandygirl78: @alk – if i ever get around writing a K&A story. I’m still backed up writing my Once and Again and Mai-Hime story (Yes Mai-Hime is an anime).
mandygirl78: I liked Playboy Club
the_dhamphir: I’ve just started exploring Bird of Prey (tv) writing wise
Liberty Stewart: @dhamphir: I just hate TV more than.
ariestess: I miss BoP…. I should do that rewatch and write for it again
yurianimeotaku: @mandy ShizNat?
the_dhamphir: I’ve started rewatching BoP, aj
Alkmaion: @aries there is a hawaiian goddess, hiiaka, that has a girlfriend, but i haven´t found a good story idea to use that yet
mandygirl78: @yuri – HELL NO!
ariestess: @alk :: kewl!
mandygirl78: @NatNao and Harukino
yurianimeotaku: @mandy Shhh…don’t say that too loud.
Liberty Stewart: How about this? Anything with Amber Heard? Poor girl is nonexistant in fanfic circles.
ariestess: @D :: Are you watching that travesty of a box set they put out?
yurianimeotaku: @mandy NATNAO?? Really??
yurianimeotaku: @mandy I prefer NaoKoto.
the_dhamphir: I have the BoP dcd box set, but also have downloads of the originally aired episodes.
Alkmaion: @mandy I know M-H, if only by name I mostly read the mangas these days
yurianimeotaku: @d I heard the DVDs have different music.
yurianimeotaku: Than the tv
ariestess: We have the originally aired burned on DVDs and the box set. I won’t touch the box set. The music is all changed…
the_dhamphir: @yuri, some of it yeah, because of licensing issues
ariestess: And I’m sorry, but the big fight scene in the finale needs "All the Things She Said"
mandygirl78: @Yeah, I think Natsuki and Nao are more suited for each other than Ms. Tea Drinker.
ariestess: And it needs Aimee Allen for the theme song.
the_dhamphir: TBH, if i haven’t seen them both within a certain time frame, i really don’t notice the different music.
Alkmaion: @ aries don´t remind me of the german dvd edition of Charlie´s Angel´s…first season…only in German!!
yurianimeotaku: @mandy Meh…I like Shizuru. She’s ‘devoted.’
the_dhamphir: but then i’m not "into" music per se
mandygirl78: @yuri – I used to, but I can’t stnad her.
yurianimeotaku: I love that. The host leaves.
quietheartedfsc: aj and I got her back…*G}
yurianimeotaku: @mandy I think Nao is better suited for Mikoto.
ariestess: LOL! There’s multiples of us.
mandygirl78: @Alk – The anime is WAY better than the manga of M-H.
ariestess: I’m totally into music, so if it changes, it throws me off.
Alkmaion: So we mouses can´t dance on the table? *pouts*
mandygirl78: @aries – diddo.
yurianimeotaku: Oh…*waves to other hosts*
mandygirl78: @yuri – Mai/Mikoto all the way
quietheartedfsc: nope, no table dancing…you’ll fall and get hurt
quietheartedfsc: *waves back*
ariestess: Chair dancing?
quietheartedfsc: only with seat belt
ariestess: *whines* But it chafes my neck!
Alkmaion: My, aren´t we on the secure side…
yurianimeotaku: @mandy Mai? That flake? She can’t decide if she’s into men or Mikoto.
mandygirl78: @yuri – An idea came to me about a Family fanfic. I’ll tell you privately
mandygirl78: @mandy – Maybe, but I make damn sure she’s not with Tate!
yurianimeotaku: @mandy Okay.
mandygirl78: I mean @yuri
Alkmaion: @mandy I only know it from hear-say. haven´t read or watched M-H, only read some of Shane´s stories some years ago…
michelle_2011: okay, i enjoy the conversation. good night or good day to all
yurianimeotaku: @Alk I agree with Mandy. The anime is WAY better than the manga.
the_dhamphir: @aj ty
Alkmaion: i like red…so…socialdemocratic *g*
WillowPowered: There’s nothing worse than reading crap fanfiction
yurianimeotaku: @willow I agree!
yurianimeotaku: @willow Or poorly edited fan fiction.
WillowPowered: But when it’s crap fanfiction and people seem to LOVE it, I’m like WTF lol
ariestess: I agree!
Liberty Stewart: @Willow: You’re forgetting, this is Twilight and 50 shades of grey era.
WillowPowered: @Liberty sadly that’s very true
ariestess: @D :: Okay, but I’m probably gonna bail. I need to finish the SSW Wiki edits in the morning before the panels start. Want it to be as ready as possible for the panel.
WillowPowered: I’m morified when I find a typo or spelling mistake in my fics so I can’t understand what these people are thinking lol
Liberty Stewart: What’s SSW stand for?
yurianimeotaku: @willow Or worse…continuity problems.
WillowPowered: oh exactly
yurianimeotaku: @d What’s that?
yurianimeotaku: @willow I read one written entirely in text language.
yurianimeotaku: @willow There are A LOT on FFN. Less on P&P
WillowPowered: but then I only read a few fandoms
