Summary: They never have sex on base. But after another one of those inevitable Stargate crises, neither Sam nor Janet wants to sleep alone. Can be read as in the "Fighting Chance" 'verse with "The One I've Wanted" (DW | LJ), but is later than several works as yet unposted.

tellitslant: Helen Magnus walking away from an explosion with a gun (sanctuary - helen - walk away from)
Tell me you want to play and I'll pick up to three of your fandoms. Then update your journal and answer the following questions:

[personal profile] such_heights gave me Sanctuary, DCU, and Stargate.

Sanctuary

What got you into this fandom in the first place?
Tumblr gifspams of Amanda Tapping kissing girls. No, shut up, really. Because [personal profile] sophia_gratia had been pushing it on me for a while, and I tried to watch the pilot and found it really boring, so I gave up. And then last November my Tumblr dash exploded with "Helen makes out with another woman in canon omg!!1!" posts, and I thought, hm, maybe I should watch this episode. So I did, and not only was there ladykissing, there was genre smartness and interesting gender politics and a badass heroine, and there we go.

Do you think you'll stay in this fandom or eventually move on?
I am a total fandom butterfly and there is a possibility that the series won't be renewed for a fifth season, so while there are a lot of stories I'd like to tell I can't imagine I'll always be as invested in the fandom as I am currently. I can't see myself getting to a point where I don't like it any longer (unless I write too much on it academically), though.

Favorite episodes/books/movies, etc?
Ack! Well, the first one I watched, obviously, "Monsoon." Also "Haunted," (because John!), "The Five" (because Nikola!), "Pax Romana" (because Ranna!), "Fugue" (because singing!), and, last but not at all least, "Out of the Blue" (because AU Crazy McPaintsALot Cat Lady Magnus OH MY GOD!).

Do you participate in this fandom (fanfiction, graphics, discussions)?
Just a wee bit. :P I am particularly looking forward to participating in Sanctuary Bingo starting on Sunday!

Do you think more people should get into this fandom?
YES. I would particularly like some more vidders (yes I'm looking at you, you know who you are *cough*). Also, I just think more people should watch shows where the lady rescues herself. Plus it's quite smart about its genre-ness and self-aware and meta; it's not perfect, but if you can get past the dodgy CGI in places it's better than it seems.

***

DCU

What got you into this fandom in the first place?
Hahahahaha. I don't know if I can answer that. You know, in the Serenity tie-in graphic novel, Nathan Fillion writes about going down to Whyte Avenue and poking through the longboxes in the Wee Book Inn and that's how he started reading comics, and... yeah. I don't actually remember when I started doing that. Age seven, eight, nine? The first DC Comic I remember buying new off the shelf was Wonder Woman vol.2 #72, when I was nine, but I'd been reading back-issues for a while before then.

Do you think you'll stay in this fandom or eventually move on?
Comics are my forever fandom. It's true! I mean, seriously, they've been part of my life for a good twenty years now. I read stuff that's not DCU, sometimes, but I can't be arsed to catch up on the X-Men stuff now and the DCU, even the crazy post-52 DCnU, is where my heart is. (Even if I am a bit broken by Wonder Woman. Thank god I still have Batwoman and Batgirl right now.)

Favorite episodes/books/movies, etc?
I am just going to talk about favourite runs, because otherwise we could have a problem. Ask if you want more detail.
Wonder Woman - the Perez run, at least through issue 30 or so, still defines the character for me; Rucka's run is just goddamn amazing; Simone's run does some delightfully subversive things.
Gotham Central - possibly my favourite thing in comics in the last... fifteen years? Because RENEE.
Batwoman - my second-favourite thing? Because KATE, and a canonically queer woman wearing the bat-symbol!
Secret Six - because they are SO WRONG it's amazing.
Teen Titans - totally oldschool, but Wolfman's run back in the 80s on TT and NTT still define Starfire and Raven for me.

Do you participate in this fandom (fanfiction, graphics, discussions)?
Off and on. I do a bit more on tumblr and on twitter and in person. I write fic sometimes, when the need (or the ficathon) strikes. I hang out with the occasional author and write academic papers. You know, like usual.

Do you think more people should get into this fandom?
This is hard for me to answer, because the DCU is so vast and so many people might like only one aspect of it. I think more people should read Gotham Central and Batwoman, because they are amazing stories and beautifully written. I think everyone should read Secret Six, because it is so twisted. I hesitate to recommend Wonder Woman to anyone right now, because it's wonderfully written and gorgeously illustrated and doing horrible horrible things that hurt me deeply. But I do think that comics as a medium are underappreciated and more people should give them a try, and that there is likely to be something in the new DCU for almost anyone if they can find it.

***

Stargate

What got you into this fandom in the first place?
Um. I ran out of Amanda Tapping in Sanctuary and [personal profile] sophia_gratia told me how awesome Sam Carter was. What, I'm totally shallow, I can't help it. I like to say that I'm not really a fan of Stargate so much as Stargate is my Amanda Tapping delivery vehicle.

Do you think you'll stay in this fandom or eventually move on?
Well, there's a lot of Stargates still to watch, so I'm definitely around for a while. And all the Stargates have some Sam Carter, so I'll stick them out. How fannish I stay about it will probably depend on how many stories I see that exist offscreen, because let's be fair: it's a pretty bad show and I'm really just watching it so I can have deep thoughts about Sam. Well, and because I think there's a paper or two in there somewhere.

Favorite episodes/books/movies, etc?
I am only on the early part of the third season of SG-1, so I am relatively early on, but: "Hathor" (because it's hilariously awful and Janet says 'libidinous' and the ladies save the day), "A Matter of Time" (because Sam! being sciencey!), "Singularity" (because Cassie! and Sam having emotions!). I have not yet watched any of the episodes that feature multiple alternate-timeline Sams, but I foresee them being high on my list also, because of reasons.

Do you participate in this fandom (fanfiction, graphics, discussions)?
I write some fic. I hope to write more fic. I spend a lot of time reblogging pictures and having a lot of feelings in email. :P

Do you think more people should get into this fandom?
Again, tough one! It would be nice if more people were a little more active in it, but it is a rather old fandom. I might settle for getting pointers to all the hidden early-2000s fic archives that must be out there... ;)

minor health tmi ) Short version: grad school is bad for your health, amiright? Feh.

So in the parts of my life that don't involve the death flu... yesterday I was kind of up in the air over shipping Sam/Janet from Stargate. Today? Today I am ridiculously flailyhands in love with the ship. What happened? [personal profile] sophia_gratia and I watched "Hathor" and "Singularity," that's what. *flailyhands of looooove* I can't figure out how "Hathor" can be so incredibly awful and yet have such amazing moments of ladies being badass together (I mean, the writing, dear god, the writing). But tiny Doctor Janet in BDUs makes up for a lot of the worst bits. And then "Singularity," which illustrated a truth I had not previously understood: when Sam Carter cries, we cry. *whimper* I was not actually a big fan of the whole "Cassie has two mommies" trope in fandom, but now I get it. Damn.

...anyways, so, [personal profile] sophia_gratia is an enabling enabler who enables, but I have high hopes of writing really rather a lot of fic this year. Also possibly a PhD. You know. On the side.
tellitslant: (batman - seriously?)
So I am kind of watching Stargate SG-1: the Sam Carter remix. But I keep asking myself why.

Episode One: Whoa, whoa, wait a minute, women can serve in the Air Force? And you're making us manly manly men put one on our team? Well. As long as she wears a short skirt.

Episode Two: Well, women can serve in this man's Air Force, but they're also the first to be taken hostage!

Episode Three: We discover that women are a liability on alien worlds! Sam gets kidnapped and sold (and kicks a remarkable amount of ass, but still).

Episode Four: Sex pollen! Men become aggressive and caveman-esque. Sam gets slutty and makes out with O'Neill.

Episode Five: Sam's ex-fiance goes insane and it is her responsibility to figure out what's gone wrong. (Though again she does get to be really awesome.)

Seriously why am I still watching this show? Man. The twin powers of [personal profile] sophia_gratia's ficcish persuasion and Amanda Tapping's Stupid Face are strong.
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.
