's excellent post here
asks what people would consider "early femslash texts," and if they even existed. I skimmed through the comments and not a lot of people seem to be touching on that question, so I am throwing it out more widely in its own post because I am really curious.
Xena was the given (and, dude, I just noticed that brown_betty
's fandom chart
doesn't even have Xena on, which is odd as there's a very clear Xena to Buffy connection in my mind though I don't know about anyone else), and I came up with Voyager and quasiradiant
with West Wing and the Wing Swing, but those are all 90s fandoms, and we know the m/m "We all started with Kirk/Spock" fanthropological statement. So. Cast your minds back, those of you who can (I, unfortunately, cannot). cdybedahl
suggests that there was Uhura/Rand. Anyone else verify that? I'd be shocked if there wasn't a Charlie's Angels movement or something around Emma Peel, say. *g* Or, hell, Wonder Woman comics, if there was a comics "fandom" as such.
So. First femslash fandom you can think of. Go.
(all this femslash meta! It's like, my god, we do exist! *g* Loving it!)
