the_dhamphir: Greetings everyone!
the_dhamphir: This is the Lost Girl panel
the_dhamphir: Will all panelist change their font to bold red
the_dhamphir: and all others to black, please.
the_dhamphir: I’m Dhamphir, or D, and I’m your friend mod today.
*** christintello has left the room ***
the_dhamphir: Will each person on the panel please introduce themselves and tell us a little about yourself.
the_dhamphir: lonejaguar? you want to go first?
hbomba-lonejaguar: I’m Nic… been writing fanfic for an obscenely long time.
hbomba-lonejaguar: Just started watching Lost Girl in January and was in love immediately.
the_dhamphir: willow? next?
WillowPowered: Sure, hi everyone
alannasky: hi all
WillowPowered: I’m WillowPowered or WP or Jill lol – I’m from Australia and I’ve been writing fanfiction for about 10 years.
cameron_sarah: Yay aust.
WillowPowered: I’ve been a Lost Girl fan since December and I’ve been writing LG fanfiction since then
the_dhamphir: rainbow? next?
rainbowwriters: Hi, we are Kath and Beth, the Rainbowwriters or for ease RW.
the_dhamphir: ah, so there’s 2 of you. LOL
rainbowwriters: We’ve been watching Lost Girl since Showcase starting teasing us with Anna Silk trailers, been writing fic a long long time
rainbowwriters: yes there is officially two of us… smile
the_dhamphir: is heathers here?
hbomba-lonejaguar: Yes, I’m here
hbomba-lonejaguar: sharing a computer with lonejaguar
the_dhamphir: then it’s your turn to introduce yourself. : )
hbomba-lonejaguar: I’m Heather. Heathers. Hbomba. I am a professional chef and have been writing fanfic for close to 15 years
the_dhamphir: Okay. Let’s start off with… Tell us what exactly got you interested in the Lost Girl?
the_dhamphir: each of you can answer that question. : )
the_dhamphir: Come on folks, you’re not on the panel to by shy. Speak up. *G*
WillowPowered: I saw a post about LG by Dorothy Snarker on after ellen so I checked out some clips on youtube – I was a goner as soon as I saw Anna Silk and Zoie Palmer
hbomba-lonejaguar: H: Strong female lead and the open sexuality of Bo. And then I fell in love with Lauren
rainbowwriters: We became interested in Lost Girl after watching the first few episodes and realizing the characters weren’t going to be cookie cut outs. They were going to have depth and wisdom, even in a supernatrual setting.
hbomba-lonejaguar: lonejaguar: Loved the relationships immediately. I love that it’s fun and doesn’t take itself too seriously
rainbowwriters: … and who can resist girl on girl action
hbomba-lonejaguar: amen to that
WillowPowered: Totally agree with H – I fell in love with Doctor Hotpants and Zoie Palmer
the_dhamphir: Especially whe they look like Anna Silk and Zoie Palmer
WillowPowered: I hear ya sisters
AlexReading: anyone here got started at season2? or everyone right at teh begining?
hbomba-lonejaguar: And everyone has a moment…
rainbowwriters: Then add to that Kenzi
fsc_ralst: love Kenzi
the_dhamphir: Okay when asking questions, let’s please raise our hands.
hbomba-lonejaguar: H and I were midway through S2 when we started watching
WillowPowered: I don’t actually watch it on TV so I brought the season 1 dvd in December, some of season 2 I’ve seen online
hbomba-lonejaguar: New Year’s Day marathon!
rainbowwriters: watching since day one, lucky for us we’re in canada
the_dhamphir: you are lucky!
WillowPowered: @rainbow lucky buggers
the_dhamphir: Giftofamber, your question?
AlexReading: lucky u.
hbomba-lonejaguar: I was the dense Canadian who’d never heard of it
giftofamber: Do you prefer to set your fic pre-Nadia or post-Nadia, or do you just ignore her altogether?
the_dhamphir: ooh, good question.
hbomba-lonejaguar: LJ: I like to play with every aspect, but she’s usually just referenced for me.
WillowPowered: I don’t ignore her and I’ll do pre and post
WillowPowered: I’ve actually got a Lauren/Nadia fic half written
rainbowwriters: Anything we’ve posted is post-Nadia, as we like to write with what we are given from the show as a starting point. But we have written pre-nadia just for the ease of not having to deal with her
WillowPowered: But my true love is Doccubus
rainbowwriters: so true WP, everyone has a past but Lauren is meant for Bo
the_dhamphir: How many of you were upset when they introduced Nadia?
hbomba-lonejaguar: H: I tend to write stories framed in S2 episodes or themes so she’s referenced but not really the focus
giftofamber: *raises hand*
rainbowwriters: both raise their hands
hbomba-lonejaguar: both raise our hands too haha
rainbowwriters: but Beth was even more upset how the show dealt with her
the_dhamphir: She was a complication, wasn’t she?
WillowPowered: I wasn’t upset by it, it had so much protential but I think she was under utilised
fsc_ralst: At least they didn’t introduce a comatose male love interest
the_dhamphir: Very true, ralst
the_dhamphir: how much potential to do you see in the growth of this fandom?
WillowPowered: She was just there to complicate things but then I wonder if they then didn’t know what exactly to do with her
hbomba-lonejaguar: H: She felt like an afterthought. An unwanted agitator for a situation without a terrible amount of drama
rainbowwriters: no ralst, thank god the show has been willing to admit a lesbian can be a card carrying lesbian, as we believe Lauren is
WillowPowered: I think it could be huge
rainbowwriters: *yes ralst
WillowPowered: oh yes, Lauren is a card carrying member alright, love the stuff in her apartment
rainbowwriters: the fandom is going to explode
hbomba-lonejaguar: LJ: I see a huge amount of potential
WillowPowered: It will be huge because once Lesbians grasp something they grasp the hell out of it
the_dhamphir: I sure hope so!
fsc_ralst: If the Lauren and Lauren/Bo quota continues to rise, the fandom will grow and grow
the_dhamphir: Ivy, your question?
cameron_sarah: "nce Lesbians grasp something they grasp the hell out of it" Best point ever!
IvyMars: Have any of you been tempted to write a Lauren/ Kenzi or Bo/ Kenzi fic after the fever induced makeout between Kenzi and the Doc?
WillowPowered: exactly ralst
WillowPowered: No Lauren/Kenzi or Bo/Kenzi don’t interest me at all, I don’t think they would "fit"
WillowPowered: That is one of my favourite scenes though
hbomba-lonejaguar: LJ: I… sort of have. I tend to challenge myself with weird stuff like that, but it takes me a LONG time to come to grips with the idea.
the_dhamphir: I tend to think of Kenzi as straight
rainbowwriters: Ivy… no… Bo and Kenzi are family to us, and your sister and your girlfriend making out is just wrong
WillowPowered: I agree D Kenzi is straight
the_dhamphir: What i love about Kenzi and Bo is that sisterly/bff bond
IvyMars: oh I know she’s straight lol
rainbowwriters: we have written ‘lesbian’ Kenzi but we choose to put her with an original character rather than muddy the waters
IvyMars: I just think a fic where Bo has to tell Kenzi about what she saw would be funny
fsc_ralst: Not romantically, but I love reading Lauren and Kenzi bonding and snark
hbomba-lonejaguar: H: I’m a canon girl. I find it more challenging to play within the perimeters. But I also agree, Kenzi and Bo are like sisters and Kenzi is straight.
the_dhamphir: Yes, I agree, ralst
the_dhamphir: bonding and snark are good. *S*
IvyMars: yes they are
giftofamber: @Ivy You mean the scene in the Spider episode? Where Bo saw Kenzi/Lauren kissing? I was hoping to see Bo confront her about it lol
cameron_sarah: would anyone write ‘accidental sex’ with Bo/Kenzi? Bo needs to heal/magic made them?
fsc_ralst: It’s something I hope we see more of next season
IvyMars: yeah that one gift
the_dhamphir: If you could meet any of the characters in person, not the actor, the character, which would it be and why?
rainbowwriters: Kath: Bo… I hope I taste like candy *G*
hbomba-lonejaguar: H: Bo because she’s so chill. And everyone needs a little supernatural drama in their life.
the_dhamphir: What would be the ultimate crossover for you? This fandom and what other?
hbomba-lonejaguar: LJ: I’m Bo too. The only friend I might not mind being taken advantage of by
the_dhamphir: darn, didn’t mean to scare WP off
the_dhamphir: wb Willow
WillowPowered: Sorry guys dodgy internet connect
hbomba-lonejaguar: H: Lost Girl/Haven would be really cool.
the_dhamphir: was afraid my crossover question scared you off
WillowPowered: Did I miss anything
hbomba-lonejaguar: LJ: I’d say Lost Girl/Fringe if I didn’t think it would end up in a blood bath.
giftofamber: I would love a Lost Girl/OUAT crossover…
WillowPowered: From a writing viewpoint I’m not reallly a crossover girl
WillowPowered: I don’t mind reading them
rainbowwriters: Beth: I agree, most crossovers I can think of come out blood bath
rainbowwriters: Beth:… or sex orgies
WillowPowered: I did toy with the idea of doing a Lost Girl/CSI one – but I don’t think it will happen
rainbowwriters: taht would be so intense to write WP
the_dhamphir: I did a really short one shot with Bo and Dana Scully. lol
WillowPowered: I know right!!
IvyMars: I wonder how a LG/ Buffy xover would do
the_dhamphir: Bo would kill all the vampires. *G*
hbomba-lonejaguar: lol Bo/Scully, how did that end up?
rainbowwriters: Kath: I do think it would be fun to see how Buffy would deal with finding out the ‘baddies’ she thought were unorganized have the whole fae underbelly
IvyMars: Lauren Faith could be interesting
WillowPowered: I often say that Anna Silk got me to watch LG, but Zoie Palmer got me to stay…
cameron_sarah: LG/Veronica Mars, since they are both PI’s
the_dhamphir: pretty well since Scully is immortal. *G*
hbomba-lonejaguar: LJ: Of course!
JoL_SG: I’d be interested to read a X/G uber cross with LG
fsc_ralst: Willow and Lauren geeking it out would be fun, especially with Kenzi and Anya as observers
IvyMars: oh that could be awesome
the_dhamphir: so who’s gonna write it? any volunteers? lol
WillowPowered: Oh yes ralst my two great loves Willow and Lauren
fsc_ralst: I think WP just volunteered
the_dhamphir: sounds like it to me!
hbomba-lonejaguar: LJ: I was just going to say that!
WillowPowered: lol you never know I might just do that…..
WillowPowered: Just for you guys
the_dhamphir: I think a lot of people would read it.
fsc_ralst: I’d read it
IvyMars: I know I would
WillowPowered: Ok well done then, I’ll do one – don’t know when it will be ready but I’ll do it
IvyMars: yay! <3
fsc_ralst: the power of the Con!
IvyMars: haha ikr
WillowPowered: Yes I think I just got conned lol
the_dhamphir: Since Bo is a succubus, do you think she’d ever be able to be monogomous?
IvyMars: ooooo nice one
JoL_SG: emo sex yes.
WillowPowered: You know what, I think so
WillowPowered: They seem to have established that she doesn’t need to have sex with people to heal
hbomba-lonejaguar: LJ: I don’t think so. But I think she’s able to separate the emotional from the physical.
IvyMars: I think she can since she was raised in the human world.
fsc_ralst: Can she take enough chi from a human without killing them?
rainbowwriters: we think monogomous for Bo comes with the appendix that she still must feed and heal, so pure monogomy no but we do think she can commit to just being in love with lauren
the_dhamphir: *nods* I agree, RW
WillowPowered: But obviously she would need to bonk Lauren’s brains out regularly to stay "healthy"
the_dhamphir: well, yeah!
IvyMars: I’m not gonna complain if they have to show that XD
fsc_ralst: you make it sound like going to the gym
hbomba-lonejaguar: H: I go back and forth about this all the time. I think Bo could strike a deal with Lauren to feed/heal with others
rainbowwriters: to us that Bo never feeds from Lauren is the true expression of her monogamy, Lauren is a lover not food
hbomba-lonejaguar: Totally agree RW
WillowPowered: Yeah Bo’s own personal gym
IvyMars: idk if lauren would let her use others for healing since she offered herself last time
fsc_ralst: we’ve seen her feed without sex, just a kiss or even less
the_dhamphir: I could see Bo getting her neede chi elsewhere, but staying true in her heart to Lauren
IvyMars: only person she hasn’t fed off of during sex is Lauren
rainbowwriters: D I think that is the balancing act for Bo, being the fae she is but being true to Lauren
hbomba-lonejaguar: LJ: To me, this is the difference between Dyson and Lauren.
IvyMars: it’ll be interesting to see how the series handles it
the_dhamphir: *nods* and I like reading stories that explore that.
JoL_SG: especially now that Bo’s powers are increasing and she’d need to feed more?
hbomba-lonejaguar: LJ: Dyson doesn’t want to share and Lauren, well she doesn’t want to share either, but she understands why she has to.
IvyMars: I don’t think dyson can handle seeing her with anyone else
the_dhamphir: RIght LJ
fsc_ralst: when Bo went all super-scary-fae last time, she sucked the chi out of people without touching them, maybe she’s headed in that direction?
the_dhamphir: Dyson is too possessive, even he tries to act like he isn’t
WillowPowered: Right ralst
hbomba-lonejaguar: LJ: Man, ralst, then she’d never have to leave home lol
the_dhamphir: She chi-sucked an entire room of people
WillowPowered: I know that in season 3 Bo chooses I just hope it’s Lauren because if they put her with Dyson all hell is going to break loose in the fandom
IvyMars: only person she’s done that type of thing for was lauren and I think that says alot
the_dhamphir: I know!
the_dhamphir: According to the polls on the offical website, there is a HUGE preference for Bo/Lauren over Bo/Dyson
WillowPowered: And from a queer community view if they put her with Dyson after being so great about the lady loving it will feel like a kick in the guts
the_dhamphir: like 80 to 20 percent
IvyMars: it could be they bring in another woman for Bo as well
rainbowwriters: if the show was smart they would listen to those polls… but its TV so I dread to think
fsc_ralst: Bo/Lauren are definitely the more vocal supporters
WillowPowered: Lauren consistantly wins every poll they put her in and not just win, she kills it
the_dhamphir: Yes, she does, WP
hbomba-lonejaguar: H: And the cool thing about that is that isn’t just the lesbians. Straights embrace the Bo/Lauren too
fsc_ralst: Lauren is the official websites fave
IvyMars: if they brought in another love interest it would make lauren and dyson team up and that could be fun to watch
the_dhamphir: question, giftofamber?
WillowPowered: And given that she is a "minor" character who really hasn’t had that much screen time, that is massive
Alert: giftofamber hand was lowered by the_dhamphir
fsc_ralst: Dyson is actually tollerable when he’s not with Bo – in scenes
giftofamber: What was your favorite female/female succubus kiss that wasn’t Bo/Lauren?
IvyMars: very true wp
the_dhamphir: good question
rainbowwriters: we don’t think that the creators realized what they were going to have with Zoe playing Lauren, minor character became major player
WillowPowered: I don’t have one Amber – I’m kinda prejudiced for Dr Hotpants lol
hbomba-lonejaguar: LJ: The trailer park chick hahahaha
IvyMars: she was kinda hot with the morrigan
rainbowwriters: Beth: Was there any others then lauren?
JoL_SG: I know which one I don’t like — the one Bo had with her mum. Ew
the_dhamphir: what about the couple she had a threesome with?
hbomba-lonejaguar: H: the Morrigan, definitely.
WillowPowered: For me the big score for this show was casting Zoie – brilliance that I hope the show realise
WillowPowered: The threesome was ok
hbomba-lonejaguar: LJ: took me a while to think of one, Beth!
giftofamber: which threesome?
IvyMars: it wasn’t the best threesome
giftofamber: there were two..
the_dhamphir: Bo picked up a married fae couple in the bar
JoL_SG: episode 1×04?
IvyMars: the fury sister one
giftofamber: oh ok. season one threesome. way better than season two threesome.
fsc_ralst: I’m not sure if there was a kiss but her scene with the Principal was good
rainbowwriters: kath: sorry I hated Ryan… so that he brought another girl to play with just screamed cheezy to me
WillowPowered: I hated the threesome with the blond in season 2 icky
WillowPowered: Actually ralst yes that was good
hbomba-lonejaguar: Neither of us liked Ryan much, either.
IvyMars: I didn’t like ryan but the character did what it was suppose to
WillowPowered: Ryan was a knob – hated him although the actor did quite well with what he had
rainbowwriters: yes the actor did his best… and the character filled the vaccum
hbomba-lonejaguar: LJ: My favourite Bo/other girl was that dress fitting girl
hbomba-lonejaguar: LJ: cracks me up every time.
IvyMars: he was necessary to show where some of Bo’s limits were morally
IvyMars: that was funny LJ
the_dhamphir: *nods* yes, ivy
WillowPowered: Yeah don’t do the douche
IvyMars: hahaha new slogan XD
the_dhamphir: What’s your personal favorite story in your fandom? Just to rec for the audience.
hbomba-lonejaguar: LJ: sounds like a cola slogan lol
WillowPowered: douche light, diet douche
eizzy rico: hi
IvyMars: I’m gonna end up photoshopping that onto a Mtn Dew can lol
Alert: giftofamber hand was lowered by the_dhamphir
giftofamber: Where do you think Bo’s SuperSuccubus powers come from?
WillowPowered: Do you mean what’s our favourite fanfic story?
the_dhamphir: Yeah, that’s what I meant WP.
the_dhamphir: but amber’s question is a good one. *S*
WillowPowered: Like Lauren said, it comes from what they feel for each other – someone hurts the Doc you’re ass will be Bo’s
WillowPowered: Wow that’s tough D there are sooo many
the_dhamphir: So do you think their relationship will make Bo stronger?
WillowPowered: I think it already has and I think it will continue to
hbomba-lonejaguar: We’re having a tough time, too!
rainbowwriters: Supersuccubus powers come from her heritage… her unusual mix of succubus, royal blood and whatever her father was… makes her able to go nuclear
IvyMars: I think her powers come from her emotions on a primal level
hbomba-lonejaguar: LJ: I think it has to do with a strong emotional bond.
WillowPowered: And no I can’t think of an absolute favourite fic
the_dhamphir: Have any of you speculated about what her father could be? And if so, what did you come up with?
WillowPowered: I haven’t thought about her father yet, I may do at some point…
rainbowwriters: sorry, no fav fic here either… as there are two of us doubly hard
rainbowwriters: WP: the concept of who Bo’s father is can lead to so many roads… and fics
WillowPowered: I do love your stories though rainbowwriters – awesome stuff
hbomba-lonejaguar: LJ: I haven’t thought about Bo’s father much, either. I guess I’ll have to some time!
rainbowwriters: thank you… we also love yours
IvyMars: is it wrong that I keep hoping for an AU fic with lauren as a cop?
WillowPowered: My fics always start with Bo/Lauren and then I develop the story from there…
IvyMars: sorry random
WillowPowered: lol Ivy very good idea
Meneldur: Do we even know if Bo’s fatehr was Dark Fae?
fsc_ralst: Bo’s father dark fae?
the_dhamphir: ‘sokay ivy. random can lead to some good discussion and stories.
WillowPowered: Zoie in cop uniform – yummy (can’t wait to see Cold Blooded)
IvyMars: me too
rainbowwriters: we agree with WP, a fic needs to have the core relationship goal and then build around that
WillowPowered: I always thought of him as being dark fae
IvyMars: they haven’t really said much about her father
Meneldur: I mean, we can assume her father was the Dark Fae King keeping Aoife prisoner
rainbowwriters: (we’re hoping to see Cold Blooded at the Mississauga Independant Film Festival)
Meneldur: But what do we really know about Aoife’s escape?
hbomba-lonejaguar: RW: We are going to MIFF!
the_dhamphir: well, Aoife was batshit crazy… lol
Meneldur: Also, it’s interesting to note that Lachlynn apparently worked with Aoife.
WillowPowered: For example Destiny started as that one small scene at the beginning……
Meneldur: And that Aoife was a radical Light Fae.
IvyMars: they won’t be showing it around here :’-(
WillowPowered: ohhhh you’ll have to give us a full report – it looks awesome
rainbowwriters: it’s like the show is holding the ‘father’ card back
Meneldur: And being imprisoned has unhinged her even worse
WillowPowered: Apparantly that gets explored in season 3
Meneldur: Well, it’s holding the Aoife card backa s well
IvyMars: would make sense
rainbowwriters: HL: Awesome! hopefully we’ll see you there
fsc_ralst: they like to have surprises held in reserve, like the mother and Nadia
the_dhamphir: does it? i didn’t know that
Meneldur: Remember? Carried away by someone at the end of the first season, and totally gone for all the second
WillowPowered: Yeah apparantly they explore the darker Bo, including her father
IvyMars: I liked Nadia better when she was in the coma lol
Meneldur: I hope we’ll be seeing both of them in season 3
the_dhamphir: what went thru your mind when you saw Bo’s eyes at the end of the 2nd season final episode?
WillowPowered: Some serious shit is going to go down
Meneldur: Heck, I’d like for the guy who carried Aoife away to be the Dark Fae King who had imprisoned/used her for thousands of years, and is also Bo’s father.
rainbowwriters: Beth: "FUN!
IvyMars: they left a lot of things open for next season
WillowPowered: Good idea meneldur
hbomba-lonejaguar: H: I was excited. I am so looking forward to exploring that alter ego if you will
rainbowwriters: Kath: I thought she’d better get a hold of herself quick before her blue banshee takes over the city
Meneldur: BTW, can I just say I don’t really like that name ‘Bo’? I much prefer Ysabeau.
IvyMars: I like Bo
giftofamber: Do you prefer to write angst, fluff, romance, or smut?
the_dhamphir: I like Bo too
hbomba-lonejaguar: LJ: I’m also excited. Can’t wait to see how badass she gets!
IvyMars: it’s very descriptive of her character
WillowPowered: I like what ever Lauren calls her lol
Meneldur: ‘Bo’? How?
Meneldur: Only bo I know is a type of staff
WillowPowered: Amber I don’t really have a preference I don’t think although smut is fun to write
IvyMars: Shortened names usually give the idea of closeness
the_dhamphir: familiarity, yes
hbomba-lonejaguar: LJ: I try to get all of that in each story, actually.
rainbowwriters: No matter what genre we start writing it usually comes back to the angst… though WP is right, smut is the most fun to write
Meneldur: Ysabeau gives a French touch, a mysteriosu touch, and of course it means ‘God’s Promise’
WillowPowered: I do like to put some humour in
Meneldur: Which makes yuo wonder why Aoife chose it.
IvyMars: that could also be the reason she doesn’t go by it M
hbomba-lonejaguar: LJ: Smut makes me pull my hair out, but I end up liking it in the end. Usually.
IvyMars: she thought she was evil
IvyMars: so why keep a name like that?
IvyMars: lol LJ
the_dhamphir: well we know Bo was found as a baby in a blanket that Bo on it.
WillowPowered: I used to be fairly graphic with my sex sceens, not I like to leave something to the readers imagination
the_dhamphir: and was then adopted by her human parents
Meneldur: Yeah, I really wanted to see mroe of Bo’s human family
IvyMars: I don’t know if we will ever see the human family
Meneldur: I found it annoying we only got a touch of it in that episode with the brother of the first guy she drained
rainbowwriters: sometimes the art is setting up the sex scene and then indeed leaving the actual sex to the imagination of the reader
Liberty Stewart: just came from AR/AUs, what’s happening here on the LG panel?
Meneldur: Probably not
IvyMars: sex lol
Meneldur: @RW True words
WillowPowered: Right rainbow
IvyMars: I’ve always hated the fade to black fics for some reason rain
Meneldur: What Jacqueline Carey did sometime in the Kushiel Legacy
hbomba-lonejaguar: H: It’s changed as I’ve gotten older. I used to write straight up smut stories when I was younger, then I’ve moved into more subtle avenues as I’ve aged. I write more angst now but its usually a kernel of the whole story.
Meneldur: Worked better, no doubt; I don’t think anyone can really write a great Melisande sex scene
Beagmactire: hi! may i join the party! How goes the world of lost girl?
the_dhamphir: Any ideas on what you expect to see in the 3rd season?
WillowPowered: Do you guys have an all time favourite episode or scene?
rainbowwriters: Ivy: I think sometimes the fade to black does seem wrong, you need the intimacy of the sex but sometimes if you don’t fade to black it derails the tempo of the rest of the story in preference for focusing on the sex… it’s a balancing act at best
Liberty Stewart: body swap episode is the best so far for me
WillowPowered: I think Bo is going to be badass in season 3
IvyMars: well yeah in some stories it is actually better, but alot of people use it as a crutch
hbomba-lonejaguar: Agree, RW, the balance is key
rainbowwriters: Agreed… Bo getting a hold on her new bigger powers is going to be the crux of 3… her learning who she is , what she can do, and more importantly what she wants to do with that
Meneldur: And I want the love triangle to be resolved
WillowPowered: I hope there is more Doc Hotpants and more doccubus
IvyMars: I’m looking forward to the Kenzi line with the Norn
hbomba-lonejaguar: LJ: I agree with Ivy, too though, sometimes it’s frustrating. Just depends on how much satisfaction I get from the rest of the story.
Alsike: I agree too. If you keep the sex it needs to be relevant to the story.
Beagmactire: I agree with RW and WP, I think no is going to had to change her game plan as this new side of her is coming out .
Liberty Stewart: who here preferred it when both Lauren and Dyson actually had girlfriends of their own?
Meneldur: Though really, I’d be just as happy if Bo gets more succubus-y and does everybody in sight
Meneldur: How hasn’t she had an orgy yet?
slave2free: WP: Fav episode: When Lauren has sex with Bo and then Bo finds out she was "ordered" to distract her.
Beagmactire: bo not no! (facepalms at autocorrect)
the_dhamphir: Okay folks, remember to raise your hands to ask the panelists questions.
Meneldur: Liberty: Me. I liked Dyson’d girlfriend, she was great
WillowPowered: That’s mine too slave
IvyMars: body swap is still the best episode overall
Meneldur: I liked Ryan as well, was sad to see him go
IvyMars: hated ryan
WillowPowered: My all time favourite scene is after Bo and Lauren sleep together and Vex – the scene when Bo finds out the Ash sent Lauren
Meneldur: He was so much fun!
Meneldur: Also, The Morrigan!
hbomba-lonejaguar: H: I have high hopes for doccubus in season three. If I only get one episode where they are happy together, I’ll be happy.
Meneldur: How is nobody shipping Bo/Morrigan?
IvyMars: because he caused Bo too much trouble and he seemd like an arrogant prick Men
the_dhamphir: Raise hand people to ask questions.
giftofamber: I like Bo/Morrigan and Lauren/Morrigan
Liberty Stewart: @mene: I like it solely because the characters can now have another focus beside the silly who can win the main character’s heart nonsense that we see too much of
Meneldur: I literally shouted at the screen when it turned out Bo was just tricking her and wasn’t having sex
WillowPowered: Anna and Zoie just acted their asses of in that scene and it broke this little lesbians heart – that’s when I fell in love with Zoie, she blew me away
rainbowwriters: Kath: if S3 doesn’t have more doccubus then some people in TVLand need to be blackjacked in a dark parking lot
Meneldur: @dhampir: Sorry, was meant as rhetoricla question
IvyMars: lol rain
slave2free: WP: Heartbreaking -yes.
hbomba-lonejaguar: LJ: I agree with Kath!
the_dhamphir: LOL@ kath
WillowPowered: Agreed Kath
rainbowwriters: WP: I swear you can see Bo’s heart breatk in that scene… truly kudos to the two actresses
the_dhamphir: I completely agree, RW
IvyMars: yeah it was great acting
WillowPowered: That scene sealed the deal for me – that’s when I went fangirl
Beagmactire: it was an amazing scene, the emotions between the two.. simply breathtaking. a Stirling piece of acting
WillowPowered: And to think it was the pilot episode, they already had all that chemistry from the start
rainbowwriters: you cannot buy that kind of chemistry
hbomba-lonejaguar: LJ: I could just have them on my TV 24/7 and I’d be happy.
the_dhamphir: Huge credit to both Anna and Zoie for that
WillowPowered: hell no you can’t and they need to embrace it
WillowPowered: They can drive us crazy with a little eye sex lol
the_dhamphir: Out of your own stories that you’ve written, which one is your favorite and why?
Beagmactire: exactly! I always thought bo and dyson had to work a for theirs but between bo and Lauren it seems effortless
the_dhamphir: and what is it about?
Liberty Stewart: who here prefers for there to be no love triangle this season? it’s like there’s not a single supernatural franchise without one
WillowPowered: I don’t really see any chemistry between bo and dyson
hbomba-lonejaguar: LJ: Would we be cheating to pick the one we just wrote together?
the_dhamphir: not at all
the_dhamphir: tell us about it
WillowPowered: I think they have to have the triangle a little in season 3 to resolve it but I don’t think the fans will buy it for much longer
the_dhamphir: Question, Liberty?
WillowPowered: Tough questions D
the_dhamphir: LOL that’s my job.
hbomba-lonejaguar: LJ: Hmm… I’m not sure how to talk about it without spoiling it!
Liberty Stewart: @my question was in the sentence i wrote
rainbowwriters: mmmmm.. picking isn’t going well for us either
Liberty Stewart: @d that is
WillowPowered: I do love Destiny because it was just going to be this little scene and it grew into this huge thing
the_dhamphir: @lib okay
hbomba-lonejaguar: LJ: it’s a general fic with Bo/Lauren and a bit of internal group struggles and explores a couple major dropped plots points from the show
the_dhamphir: Where do you post your stories, so that the fans here can find and read them?
rainbowwriters: Beth: can I favourite a fic we haven’t posted yet? *g*
the_dhamphir: yes, RW you can
hbomba-lonejaguar: H: For some reason I love The First Five times which is an account of Bo/Lauren’s first five times together. There are 5 separate stories so you get a bit of everything in it.
WillowPowered: I really like Sacrifice and Safe Word too because the ideas for them just popped into my head and I wrote them really quick
hbomba-lonejaguar: H: I post to my tumblr and fanfiction.net and livejournal
hbomba-lonejaguar: LJ: I post to fanfiction.net, tumblr, and LJ, too when I remember!
rainbowwriters: Beth: we are working on one that begins when Lauren goes away with Nadia for the ‘trip’… we introduce another wolf character named Katarina and I’ve fallen in love with her as a fae
WillowPowered: There’s here http://www.fanfiction.net/u/1219207/ and here http://wpfanfiction.blogspot.com
rainbowwriters: at the moment fanfiction.net is where we post
hbomba-lonejaguar: LJ: If i was to choose one of my own, then I’d go with Human Nature. It explored a lot of the Lauren vs. Dyson which I really wanted to write.
WillowPowered: and on http://www.ralst.com/index.html
the_dhamphir: all of these stories sound so good! *S*
rainbowwriters: Kath: I’d have to say Faethful… it was nice to start writing a fic on the premise foundation that Bo has picked Lauren, no more triangle… she’s made the choice
WillowPowered: Actually I think I post them on wayyy to many places lol
hbomba-lonejaguar: H is hbomba on ff.net and I’m lonejaguar on ff.net
the_dhamphir: good to know!
WillowPowered: I also blame Lost Girl for my twitter obsession lol
hbomba-lonejaguar: LJ: Alas, I cannot blame Lost Girl for that!
the_dhamphir: you mean following anna and zoie on twitter?
rainbowwriters: who doesn’t love cloverblob!
WillowPowered: being on twitter in general
giftofamber: I love cloverblob!
hbomba-lonejaguar: Our cat has a crush on cloverblob
WillowPowered: cloverblog is legend lol
the_dhamphir: Do you have any new stories in the works and if so care to share a bit?
WillowPowered: before I discovered LG I’d posted about 900 tweets in a couple of years
WillowPowered: since I discovered LG and signed up for twitter again in January I’ve got about 9000 tweets lol
hbomba-lonejaguar: We’re actually in the planning stages of a new one, yes…..
WillowPowered: I’ve got about 3 new stories floating around in my head
hbomba-lonejaguar: We’re researching the fae we’re hoping to use still, so very early.
the_dhamphir: care to give us a sneak peek?
the_dhamphir: what kind of fae?
rainbowwriters: must admit we are always writing… stories get started, put aside, others get picked up… but the one Beth mentioned above is probably the biggest one. It takes the gang out of their home city and moves them temporarily to a new locale while they deal with some angst
WillowPowered: I will tell you that in one of my current ones What Price Love, Lauren is going to be kick ass….
hbomba-lonejaguar: Oh I don’t know if I want to tell you that yet But I’m pretty sure it’s an African one
the_dhamphir: @wp kickass Lauren sounds good.
rainbowwriters: researching fae is half the fun sometimes
hbomba-lonejaguar: LJ: which is weird because I’ve never found myself interested in the mythology.
hbomba-lonejaguar: LJ: All I can tell you is Bo’ll be in danger and I think we’re teaming Lauren and Kenzi up.
WillowPowered: I am thinking of trying to write Lauren with someone else after Bo break her poor little heart – don’t worry doccubus will win out, it always does
the_dhamphir: that’s good to know, WP
the_dhamphir: and that sounds interesting, LJ
hbomba-lonejaguar: LJ: I really really really want to see Lauren just lay someone out some time.
WillowPowered: Geeky, kick ass Lauren is very appealing
the_dhamphir: Okay, there’s about 30 minutes left, so let’s open this up for everyone to ask questions
IvyMars: I wonder what would happen if the Morrigan became interested in Lauren
hbomba-lonejaguar: LJ: I think that might be a way she gets back at Bo, Ivy
the_dhamphir: I don’t see that ending well for the Morrigan. *S*
WillowPowered: That opens up a heap of avenues for very awesome fanfiction lol
rainbowwriters: Ivy: we’ve actually toyed with that idea…after all don’t the dark fae need a doc too?
WillowPowered: I think we’ve all toyed with that idea
IvyMars: well stop toying and someone write the damn thing lol
Liberty Stewart: @Ivy: Lauren + Morrigan will be the most awesome thing I’ve seen
WillowPowered: lol yes ma’am
giftofamber: I have one started w/Lauren & the Morrigan
synergyfox: My friend is writing that, though it’s a crossover.
giftofamber: but it’s on the backburner right now (2 parts are up)
rainbowwriters: the morrigan is a fun character… she has the unique perspective of being in a place of power where she is expected to abuse it
WillowPowered: I hope that if they don’t have Bo with Lauren in season 3 that they bring someone in for Lauren – jealous Bo would be awesome
IvyMars: we haven’t really seen too much of jealous Bo
hbomba-lonejaguar: Lj: I don’t know, all the eyerolling around Nadia was pretty funny1
the_dhamphir: yes it was.
WillowPowered: I also hope they write Lauren and Dyson better in season 3 – emo Dyson was aweful
rainbowwriters: Beth: the morrigan can’t play more of a role in Lauren’s life until she’s free of the light fae in our fae series… but then be prepared of the seeds sown in ep1
WillowPowered: When Bo walked in on Nadia and Lauren kissing it broke my heart
IvyMars: yes but the light could trade lauren to the dark for something
IvyMars: that could be fun
rainbowwriters: wp: The way Bo grabs the doorframe on the way out was brilliant
WillowPowered: Anna and Zoie are amazing at saying so much without talking, their expressions are unbelievable
WillowPowered: Exactly RW you could feel her pain
hbomba-lonejaguar: RW/WP yes!
IvyMars: they do that sooo well
WillowPowered: After some of their eye sex scenes I feel like I need a cigarette
hbomba-lonejaguar: Anyone else have any ideas on Lachlan’s letter from 2.20?
the_dhamphir: LOL.. IKR
Liberty Stewart: @rainbow: isn’t most of the light fae that controls lauren life dead though?
rainbowwriters: that’s why for us it’s hard to diminish the value of doccubus to the show… those little moments convery so much emotion and internal dialogue
WillowPowered: Exactly RW and there is none of that between Bo and Dyson
WillowPowered: No idea re letter
rainbowwriters: Liberty: yes, but her service is to the light fae as a whole, to the Ash, who holds the title is of little concequence
the_dhamphir: Dyson just represents sex… Lauren is love.
WillowPowered: Exactly D
IvyMars: exactly d
rainbowwriters: LibertyL: at least in our world
rainbowwriters: Dyson is a fourth of july in her mouth… a one hit wonder… no depth
the_dhamphir: great way to put it
IvyMars: that was a horrible mental image >.<
WillowPowered: He’s a pinch hitter where as Lauren is the whole batting order
the_dhamphir: Bo and Lauren are simply meant for each other.
WillowPowered: Exactly D
IvyMars: that they are d
rainbowwriters: agreed D
WillowPowered: Anyone else got a question
hbomba-lonejaguar: I’d like to ask one
IvyMars: bang XD
hbomba-lonejaguar: Why do you folk write? Is it to fulfill something not on the show or to exercise creative muscles, etc?
the_dhamphir: So far I think LG is giving us pretty great stuff. So for this show, I’d say to excersize creative muscle.
WillowPowered: I started writing fanfiction as a way to practice writing for my "serious" stuff but then it turned out I love playing with characters from the shows I love
hbomba-lonejaguar: LJ: I write to fill in some blanks, mostly. Things that don’t get talked about or dealt with on the show. But creative muscle does play a big part.
Liberty Stewart: Here’s a question, do you think the series will explore their world better this season? I hate supernatural shows where the supernatural element is mostly brushed to the side.
WillowPowered: For me I think it’s both – I get to create and I also get to do stuff that isn’t happening on the show(s)
rainbowwriters: good question… we write lost girl because of what isn’t given to us on the show, what it can’t explore or simply other options it didn’t…. especially with it being in between seasons at the moment… and we write because we can do anything in a scene regardless of the CGI/Makeup/Special effects budget
hbomba-lonejaguar: H: I was a film student and I just love telling stories. Fanfiction has always been a safe place to do this for me.
WillowPowered: While the show is a supernatural show I think it will keep on doing what it has been in that respect
hbomba-lonejaguar: LJ: the fact that Lost Girl gives us so much has also made it very easy or very difficult to write for me, too
rainbowwriters: Liberty: I hope the S3 will give us more fae folklore, more background and more fae discriptions. it’s the supernatural element that is the canvas for the characters stories
IvyMars: they are very generous with fandoms
WillowPowered: I don’t see it digging deeper into the supernatural world
hbomba-lonejaguar: LJ: I think it’s done well so far with the supernatural aspect, but I hope it doesn’t get lost. it’s one of the reasons I loved it in the first place.
WillowPowered: but I do hope they go deeper and give us more of the whole fae world
the_dhamphir: I completely agree
WillowPowered: I just hope they listen to what the fans are telling them – I see potential for them to really stuff the show up if they aren’t careful
rainbowwriters: We also hope they keep drawing their folklore from real legends and history… Beth has a bookcase of books on legends and mythology and it’s always cool to crossreference the elements of the fae they have created with the real legend
WillowPowered: Agreed RW
IvyMars: well there is the advantage of the show not being an american show
WillowPowered: True Ivy
hbomba-lonejaguar: LJ: Yes, RW, we do that too!
IvyMars: so there is a better change of the Bo/ Lauren thing actually working out
rainbowwriters: we can only hope that the show being focused on my an american channel doesn’t put pressure on showcase to change things
WillowPowered: Yeah I hope so and if it does I think it will be huge
hbomba-lonejaguar: LJ: what RW said.
the_dhamphir: We’re 2 season in and with a canonical bi main character in love with a canonical lesbian, do you think that increases or hurts the amount of fic we’ll see in the fandom?
rainbowwriters: unfortunately we all know the effect of ‘tv money’ on a shows creativity… it’s never good
WillowPowered: Exactly RW
IvyMars: my cable network refused to put 2X06 on ondemand
IvyMars: it was too "controversial"
hbomba-lonejaguar: H: For me, I understand if it’s not all doccubus all the time and there has to be some sort of conflict so it will never be like it is in fic, I think
WillowPowered: I think Bo and Lauren being together will make the fandom explode with fics galore
rainbowwriters: kath: if the show had remained purely canadian I think we’d have had a better chance of doccubus playing out more truthfully
WillowPowered: I think so too H, it won’t be smooth sailing
IvyMars: hopefully Syfy doesn’t sell the show out
hbomba-lonejaguar: LJ: Having written lesbians in fic where it’s subtext, once people realize this is canon, I think the fandom will explode.
WillowPowered: I think that if the USA market does influence the show then doccubus won’t be end game which really sucks
the_dhamphir: god I hope not
WillowPowered: Oh yeah canon will make the world go BANG
hbomba-lonejaguar: LJ: I just hope Showcase/Shaw have the balls to say no if that ever becomes an issue.
rainbowwriters: the quality of Bo and lauren’s relationship will make the fic numbers explode, even if the show screws us over, they can’t change that love, what fic writers can create with it
slave2free: I think that having the couple in cannon will only increase the amount of fan fiction. I hope
the_dhamphir: agreed @ lj
WillowPowered: Exactly RW
rainbowwriters: like with willow/tara… even killing Tara didn’t stop the fic writers or the fans… hell we wrote more than one fic just to bring hr back
WillowPowered: And personally I’ll write doccubus until my last breath lol
IvyMars: idk if the canadian company will change the essence of the show’s chemestry for the american market
rainbowwriters: here here WP
WillowPowered: I hope not Ivy
Liberty Stewart: @Ivy: I don’t think syfy has that much say in what showcase puts on the show. i’m sure they’re oversea channels picking up the show too.
IvyMars: yeah I think so too Lib
the_dhamphir: Speaking of canon couples… How would you compaire Bo/Lauren to Callie/Arizona? Do you see parallels?
the_dhamphir: Especially in regards to their acceptance by the audience at large.
WillowPowered: Bo/Lauren wipe the floor with them, but then I’m not a Grey’s fan (although Callie/Arizona are good)
hbomba-lonejaguar: Bo/Lauren are our only canon experience, so we can’t say.
rainbowwriters: not a Grey’s fan so can’t say much
IvyMars: not a fan of grey’s either
Liberty Stewart: @ivy: showcase was the canadian channel that took pride for being uncensored, unedited and aired lots of gay material back in the 90s
WillowPowered: It’s like comparing a fake orgasm with a real one lol
the_dhamphir: I asked because the general audience has, for the most part, been behind Callie/Arizona. And it seems to hold true for Bo and Lauren as well.
hbomba-lonejaguar: LOL WP
IvyMars: hopefully they keep that reputaion up Lib
IvyMars: haha wp
slave2free: WP: And as long as you write it, I’ll be reading it!!
WillowPowered: Thanks slave
rainbowwriters: Kath: I hope that what it shows is that the ‘genera’ audience is ready for gay/lesbian couples to be part of a show as a couple… not the gay couple there for the gay market… just a couple on the show
the_dhamphir: 7 minutes until the Web Series panel begins.
hbomba-lonejaguar: how prevalent are Calle/Arizona though, D? Maybe people are okay with it because it’s more of an ensemble?
Liberty Stewart: @ivy: showcase has been more mainstream since than, but they still seem to stick by the guns
IvyMars: the way the sexuality is such a non issue is great
hbomba-lonejaguar: Lost Girls’ pretty unapologetic
WillowPowered: As a writer there’s one thing I’ll tell you guys – I’m a feedback ho – always feel free to tell me what you think good or back
hbomba-lonejaguar: We’re both with WP there!
the_dhamphir: I concur
rainbowwriters: what writer doesn’t like feedback?
WillowPowered: LG got me because of the non-issue about the whole "gay think" I’ll always love the show for that
Meneldur: The bad kind
WillowPowered: exactly right guys lol
Meneldur: I also enjoy the fact that the sexuality is open
hbomba-lonejaguar: It’s always nice to know what people think about what we write
WillowPowered: even if it’s bad tell me because unless you tells us we don’t know where we can improve
Meneldur: It’s not just about gay characters
yurianimeotaku: @willow I wish P&P had a "review" option, because I feel weird sending direct email to an author.
the_dhamphir: It’s kind of hard to be uptight about sex when your main character is succubus!
Meneldur: Whether those involve drainign sex energy or threesomes.
IvyMars: very true
WillowPowered: True Yuri but you have my permission to email the heck out of me lol
Meneldur: They could have made her fear of draining make her into a prude
hbomba-lonejaguar: LOL us too!
IvyMars: I read an interview with the creator and she said they toned down the show because of True Blood lol
yurianimeotaku: @willow Okay. I just feel like I’m invading an author’s privacy when I do.
WillowPowered: heck and while you’re at it follow me on twitter @WP_writer lol
IvyMars: could you imagine?
Meneldur: True Blood… eh. I do feel the sex is just gratutious/ too casual there
WillowPowered: Go for it yuri like I said I’m a feedback ho lol
hbomba-lonejaguar: You find us on the Twitter, too! @chefheathers & @lonejaguar
the_dhamphir: as a writer, i have to supply our email to ralst for her to post it. so believe me, we don’t mind getting emails. if we did, we wouldn’t have them on the stories!
WillowPowered: Exactly H
the_dhamphir: Okay, I’d like to thank our panelists and our guests for a wonderful time discussing Lost Girl!
yurianimeotaku: ty panelists
rainbowwriters: clap… clap… clap
the_dhamphir: Make sure you read their stories and feed them with feedback! *G*
IvyMars: woo! it was fun <3
hbomba-lonejaguar: Thank YOU! It’s been awesome! Hope we’ll see you all over the internet!
Liberty Stewart: @meneld: true blood is clearly made by a horny gay man, so that’s no surprise
WillowPowered: Thanks everyone I’ve had a blast
rainbowwriters: Thank you… it has been great discussing our fav show
