tellitslant: (renee - home with daria)
Dear [community profile] femslash12 author: eeee yay you're writing me a fic! I love you already. :D I am going to babble a little bit about what I like in fic in general before moving on to what I like about the specific fandoms and pairings I listed; if you already have some ideas, please feel free to ignore the second part of this altogether and write whatever floats your boat.

generalities )

specificities – Warehouse 13, The Good Wife, Sanctuary, Captain Marvel )

[livejournal.com profile] fox1013'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 [livejournal.com profile] 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 [livejournal.com profile] 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). [livejournal.com profile] 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!)

tellitslant: amanda tapping being a dorkface at the camera (doctor - romana I - heart)
So interestingly enough, someone who hadn't run across any of the recent femslash discussion asked me yesterday why Doctor Who femslash was so much better - bigger, easier to find, etc - than Stargate. I don't necessarily agree with the statement, but I understand where the perception comes from, and that is really making me think about femslash in general.

To an extent, I had the same experience - Who femslash was much more 'out there' than Stargate when I first went looking - and that was entirely contrary to my expectations. )

This is a post that I want people to tell me I'm wrong about and why. It's hugely subjective, so I want to see comments. Also, if those comments included Vala fic or a link to the huge SG femslash site that I'm obviously missing (and this would be a good time to mention both [livejournal.com profile] sg_femslash and [livejournal.com profile] dw_femslash), that might be nice too. ;)

Also, I have just discovered the [livejournal.com profile] fish_like_bikes SG Female Characters Kink and Cliche Challenge, ironically enough while I wasn't looking for it, so YAY for that.
